At the end of the expansion cycle, a lot of us have multiple characters at the level cap. With new talent trees and redesigns being released, there are a lot of “oooh shiney” moments where we get excited about some of our classes more than others.
Which leads to the “which toon will be my main?” conundrum.
Some people really agonize over this. There is one person in my guild who has gone back and forth an uncountable number of times about which of his four or five level 80 toons will be his main come the expansion.
You look around other blogs and see a lot of main-changing. Some of the rogue blogs I have read in the past have become tanking or healing blogs.
I can’t imagine any character other than my rogue as my main. He was my only toon through vanilla WoW, and my main ever since. I am certainly better at rogue-ing than I am at paladin-ing or priest-ing or mage-ing, so sticking with this toon is not only better for me, but better for my guild when we get to raiding.
Also, my achievements are concentrated on my rogue, so for that purpose I’d be advised to stick with the one character.
That said… one of my guild’s main tanks has taken an indefinite leave from WoW. That leaves my paladin as the most suitable candidate to step in for our final push to clear ICC. So for the near future I’ll be on my paladin much more than my rogue. Will that convince me to change my main? Not likely.
Are you changing your main in Cataclysm? If so, what made you decide to do that?
