Re: Why are Captains low in numbers?
My main alt is a captain, and I'm thinking it's because they're so horribly, horribly boring to solo with. I may be spoiled in having arguably the most fun solo class as my main (warden), but I'm STILL working on getting my captain through Mirkwood because solo questing is SO FREAKING BORING. I suspect a lot of people give up by the time they reach their 30s or so.
Although skirmishing helps a bit with the horribleness of soloing, I've found. Being your own little three man group is kind of fun (you, herald, soldier).
