Sort of. What I like about DDO is the option to start a character with decent gear at level 4. So It is a new character, but I get to skip all the annoying new player stuff and start with a character that is already on its way to being what I want it to be. Its like rolling a character at level 20 in any other game.

Every break that I take from an game begins with a round of toon deletion. It's the lack of anything to do at the level cap that instigates the break in the first place, might as well do what I can to delay another onset of burnout.

It depends.

I rarely return to a game I have quit. The notable exception is Guild Wars, which I have quit and resumed playing multiple times over the span of 5 years. Equally notable however is that GW doesn't have the gear or level progression characteristic of most MMOs. I am able to return to the game and start kicking ass immediately, without having to level up to the new cap or grind some new gear.

I'm fairly sentimental about my characters. If I want a "new start" I usually do it when it's a choice between rerolling or quitting outright. I don't reroll after I've already quit and returned again.
