Default I'd make an Alt for X/Y/Z but...

Ever had that itch to try and start fresh but then realize that you'd have to
do some sort of task that you remember disliking the first time you did it on another character?

For myself, it's the realization that if I wanted to mess around with glamours it'd mean having a semi-stable income, which would mean levelling up multiple jobs that I personally have little investment in.

But levelling's the point of the game I hear you cry! Or at least I'm sure it isn't an auditory hallucination brought on by the lack of sanity in my skull.

For instance, my bugbear of yesteryear (been ages since I did it) was levelling up Monk to 42 for Mantra - sure I grew an appreciation for Monk but ye gods it felt tedious at times, especially since I did it all solo with no quests or leves to spare and this was before Palace of the Dead existed (Which to be fair, I seem to suck at anyhow.)

So folks, what ideas/desires have you had for alt characters but shelved because you've felt it was too much hassle in some aspect?

Myself, I'm dithering on an Au Ra courtesan (E)RP character being made
(Sure, I accept that the concept leads to less SFW subjects but there more to it than being a bedwarmer.)

I usually make alts with the hopes of making new friends, whether sfw or eRP. My breaking point a couple of times was doing the level 50 MSQ. Its so tedious and takes away from the fun of hanging out and being social :C.

I've wanted to make an alt so I could play as another model without needing to fantasia. However the story is a huge hassle and I'd rather not do it again. Lost glamours and crafting are another thing holding me back. I do miss my Au Ra though.

When I was playing that was an annoying thing about the idea of having alts. Having to do all the long gate blocking quest crap. Should make way to skip it if you already done it.

I hope the jump pots are account wide(probably not), or at least afforable, thats the only reason I would use em.

Sadly the jump pots aren't a thing yet and -are- likely to be laden with both restrictions and costs up the wazoo.

Current bugbear of Alt-making: Getting into servers where your other characters are! Seems like getting into Balmung or Gilgamesh requires sacrificing your first born or something, even if you already have characters there!
(Of course you can circumvent this by using world transfer, but I'm very stingy!)

Humorously, logging back into the game after a long hiatus only to find your gear to be made of junk compared to what you can buy off the marketboard is funny (at least to me), especially since it seems so goddamn cheap.

Oh well, least there is plenty of new glamour stuffs to mess with, but alas my main has an appointment with Ramuh and I generally feel like I can't be bothered, especially after the debacle that Mog - seriously, pre-heavensward twinked out folks failing at Mog? Hilarious if frustrating; still nothing can beat the Vietnam-esque flashbacks of doing Titan for the first time during the first month of launch.

Still, the game is fun enough and I've loaded a preset for my Au Ra into character creation for when the goddamn stars align. No matter, no matter... plenty of eyecandy to keep me preoccupied until then, be it artwork or new-ish things to look at.
