    They essentially want their economy on prime to revolve around crafted items with people selling and trading. The same goes for wardrobe bundles that will drop throughout the world and dungeons/raids. Tradeskills are limited to 3 per character (not including fishing/survival). They limit that even further to prevent people from having every single tradeskill on one account through multiple characters so you're sort of forced into buying, selling and trading if you want to make money off of it anyway.

    My guess - if you want more alts, you have to buy another patron(s).
    New player? Apply code TD2TGJH9WGYYLEGC2EMJ or use the link for some free stuff.

    But you can play on two accounts and have all 4 classes + all crafting skills...
    You do need patron on all accounts though.

    This is a lame decision. What will happen is a small percentage of power gamers will have 2 accounts, or more, and just have everything, and gouge everyone else. Why can't they see this coming. It's painfully obvious. I'm probably one of the people that will do this.

    You're assuming that everyone in the game will be forced to buy only from those power gamers. They can make items for their own characters and circumvent the AH system, but they won't have a lock on the market and be able to gouge other players. They will only be able to sell items for whatever the market prices are. I doubt that many people will be willing to pay patron fees for another two slots just to be self sufficient.

    For more it is only 1 server and it is quite full, if each and every player would have 3 alts that would be a hell for to make any quests or to forage any materials, there is no sense in making queues to forage some logs or flowers or to que waiting for mobs to spawn for to get some hide and other mats.
    There is no other server where you can jump to to grind there just due to have to wait or even compete on the targets and for the drop.
    We who was there all the first day we have gone through all that wait and frustration of not having enough, as every corner were filled with several players doing exactly the same harvestings for mats, and for to complete even quests.
    When everyone start to realise you do not have portable banks nor general goods vendors everywhere, how importante outfitter mats turned out to be, due to bags. It is not just level as that to get big bags at all, everyone need to work hard for their skill, and not really many people are buying in ah that much as on live server, cause the cash to buy is not that easy to get.
    I am happy and pleased there is not possible to have more than 2.

    Having plat is not necessary if they do itemization right. Unfortunately, that may not be the case. Back in the original concept of Rift gear came directly from the raid vendor and used raid drops to upgrade them. They then added paths to get weapons from quest and even at some point allowed pvp weapons with hit runes to be allowed in raids + combined that with crafted weapons that were just good enough to start the next raid. If they try to make Rift like it is on live they will have a recipe for disaster in the making.

    Itemization needs a good looking at as they will be directly and mostly responsible for the dips in the prime population. Just like the fragments, the RNG, the affixes, not having relci path, having insanely grindy upgrade paths for each role you want to play effected each player on live.

    Consider how much it cost for upgrading fragments. You have tank fragment, Dps fragment, pvp fragment set. It is insane how much they gated us in NT from playing ALTs to the point they had to inflate gear drops for primalist calling. You would think they realized what they created but they simply didn't.

    After they created this audience of single class users they began to separate them by individual role. It isn't like we wanted to be class gated in the first place. They forced it unto us. Made the population except it then said hey lets force role gating because that is what we have now from our players. So what was is left for them to do? People stop pvping, started to only play one role and that made the entire population suffer. Sucks but it is the truth.

    Another prime post in the live forums.

    To be clear, it is two characters on the prime server. On live you can still get up to six (or more?) characters per server through various means.

    @devs, can we get a more obvious sticky note at the top of this forum directing prime related queries to the appropriate place? I don't mean to be snarky about this but when all of the forum posts here are about prime and only prime (it seems), those of us on live may begin to feel that that portion of the game is being neglected or not as important anymore.
