By default, how many character slots do you get in The Secret World with the various purchasing options? One option has "+1 character slot" as a perk, which made me wonder about the default case.

The default starting number of slots is three.

You can purchase more individually, for $9.99 (US) each, or get them as part of various packages such as the starter kits.

And keep in mind that there's basically no reason to run more that 3 slots, unless you insist on doing Fusang on every dimension for some reason. Really no reason for more than one unless you want to experience all the faction-specific content (which isn't that extensive compared to the rest of the game). – Shinrai Jul 6 '12 at 16:37
