You should accrue a currency for having conduits "socketed". The longer you have the same conduits, the rate of accrual increases exponentially. Re-socketing on any character on your account plummets the rate back to baseline.The "Server First" Crowd will continually re-socket after every boss/dungeon, constantly burning their acceleration to the ground. Loyalists who never re-socket will reach other milestones, first, exchanging this new currency. You can't be first in both, with the same account. You have to choose which path to pursue, zeroing out your chance to be among the first in the other path. Sure, you can still multi-account, but that lines Blizzard's coffers with sub money, and I'm OK with that.
