I can accept that you can only use one character but what bugs me is the thought of the game resetting my character each level. How are you supposed to keep hold of the elite items which you find if you lose them at a later stage..
When you start a character, you start off as a level 1 nothing with no skills or moneys. After your first quest, you have moneys that you collected and stars you earned from leveling up. With the stars, you learn skills (for the Dark Ranger, one example would be a skill that lets you start with poison arrows). These skills are permanent. Once you learn them, you have them for good.
Money allows you to "master" items. When you master an item, it is also permanently mastered. Mastering it allows you to find it more often in quests. Pair specific item mastery with the skill that increases the drop rate of stuff, and you could potentially nab yourself a sexy piece of gear in the first/second chest.
You don't notice the fact that you start back at level 1 each quest - I haven't gotten past the fourth quest yet (crashing bug needs addressing investigation in the first update
), so I don't know what lies far ahead. Imagine that Infinity Blade meets Gauntlet, sexes it up for a bit, and poops out Pocket RPG. The offspring is similar to its parents, but unique in its own way.
