How many times has your main changed?
Posted 31 July 2013 - 07:05 PM
I have finally settled on the engi as main and ranger as second best choice.
It is just funny that at some point or other each char was thought of as the main one. Only once I reached 80 with all of them I was able to narrow it down. I do like the engineer the best.
Will not bother with Mesmer but some day I might make an elementalist, he used to be my main in GW1.
So my main changed 6 times.

Also I do have eight 80 level characters of all classes on my account.

I don't know what it is, but I enjoy playing almost all the classes D:

Was planning on maining a Mesmer as I did in gw1 (even went to the trouble of making my avatar here and making my Mesmer look the same) but I fell in love with the engi during beta. Have all profs at 80 now apart from ranger which is 51 but nothing compares to that special charm the engi has.

Then, I started working on my Assassin, got her to level 80 and stuck on it for another 50 surplus skill points after purchasing everything and got her Cultural T3 Armor.
Then I went back to my Necro to recover some money and help earn exotic weapons for my Assassin afterwards, then worked on my Guardian to level 80, with a few surplus skill points and made two transmuted exotic outfits with Cultural T3 and Dungeon stuff....
Then back to my Necro... and going on and off with four other characters as I slowly work on them to level 80...
Basically, my Necro remains as my main guy I use for just about everything. But I switch focus to certain professions in order to get certain goals done in terms of aesthetics and completion. Or I would just use my Necro to earn the money/tokens to get the equipment my other characters would need. He is my go to guy.

Which character would you choose to represent yourself in an imaginary GW2 movie?

I play them equally, and have put roughly even amount of time/effort into their gear, story, looks, etc, and have a spec I'm happy with for spvp on both of them which I play here and there (I pvp infrequently). I log on to which ever one I happen to feel like when I open the game, and they end up getting about the same amount of play time.
I've got a Thief, Elementalist and Ranger between level 25 and 50 which I play here and there as well.
Only thing that sucks about my choice of mains is that they ended up being part of that so called 'dungeon trinity', which makes it feel cheap to play them... x.x Luckily that has faded out.

With that said: I pretty much narrowed it down to a warrior, guardian, necro, ranger, thief and engineer as the guys that I play, depending on my mood. I parked my mesmer at the end of a jumping puzzle, so that I can just log into the guy and get a potential +1 daily JP without actually having to do the JP (and that's all the action he sees) and I don't have an ele.

However I never really dropped my guardian and I'm pretty much gearing both classes up and playing them equally. I just consider my mesmer to be my main as it was the first class I decided to gear up with ascended and infused stuff and it's the class I did 100% exploration with and that I'm planning to make a legendary weapon for.

Mained ele for a long time and really enjoyed him, but eventually got tired of it.
Mained engie for a short while. Condition grenades, but frustrated by the lack of damage to objects. (I can set fire to ghosts and ice elementals, but not a door?!?)
Am now maining a guardian. Planning on finally getting world complete on this character.

Despite now having a level 80 guardian and a soon to be level 80 warrior - so far nothing has been as fun or as comfortable as playing the engineer.
It helps that he's cute as hell too. He's fun to watch. X3c

Rolled the following and leveled to various stages before deleting: Engi, Thief, Necro. I am sure their flavor appeals to some folks, but I just could not get excited them.
Took the following all to 80: Ele, Mesmer, Guardian.
Really liked the Guardian and have been maining it for about 4 months now, doing mostly WvW.
Deleted Ele to make space to try a Necro, but not that motivated to level it.
The third class I like is the Mesmer, which is level 80 but has quite a ways to go in terms of gear. I take her out occasionally to play around with portals, etc.
Spend most of my time in the guardian in WvW, but when action is off or I just want a break, I spend some time rebuilding my warrior as a zerker GS/Axe/Mace DPS machine for dungeons. I like to use it for world chests and champions, and daylies.

Back in January I was like: Oh well, I did enjoy ranger, but the class feels broken/too weak. They'll probably fix it in a month or two.
Sadly enough Ranger still isn't any fun to play to be honest. I've been trying other classes aswell, but nothing beats my guardian. Soon I'll equip him with a Twilight, maybe then I'll have time to look for another 2nd main.

Started with Ele when I first started playing, wasn't really impressed, swapped to thief which was my first 80. At that point (and for a while after) I considered her my main. Then came a Warrior whom I leveled to 80 and was bored out of my skull by then. Then back to Ele, which I hit 80 with and enjoyed for the most part. Then my second thief. My little Asuran thief who probably should be medicated for ADHD because how spastic his combat is. He is definitely my main, even though I'm currently working on an engi, necro and ranger up to 80. I don't think my Asuran thief will ever be replaced as my main because he's just so damn fun to play.
So to answer the OPs question...I think only once.

BUT, to answer.. I change main probably every week.I guess I'm too easily bored and I love getting new armorsets for my characters. I have six lvl 80's: Necromancer x2, Guardian, Engineer, Warrior and a Mesmer. But my Main cycle or whatever to call it is between Guardian, warrior, one of the necros and my mesmer.

Necro was my first love, and even after leveling a new Thief, a Mesmer, a Guardian, and a Ranger, it remains the toon I always come back to.
Though Loperdos was perilously close to getting me to switch mains to my Thief.
