In a typical MMO, players will have one main character that they dedicate most of their time and effort to. They may also have alternate characters on the same account
that they use to try out different classes or starting areas. EVE Online
is different in that it's not really feasible to play multiple characters on the same account. While each EVE
account has three character slots, only one can be actively training skills at one time
. Taking a break to train up another character means losing training time on your main one. And since any character can learn any skill, it's often better to just train those skills on your main character rather than making a dedicated alt for it. Many players suggest getting a second account
but is that really necessary? And what do you do with those two extra character shots on your account?
In this article, I look at some nifty things you can do with your main account's two extra character slots without paying for a second account.
