So, adding new classes to the game would probably be far more costly to produce than they're worth.
However, I do think there's some opportunity to improve the variety of play currently available. I believe we could achieve some rather interesting results if we saw wholesale improvement of the third tree in each class.

Right now, that third shared tree has a tendency to be... okay... in each class. Some people can use it to great effect, but from messing around with a couple and reading guides on others, it seems they all share the same fundamental problems of:

1) Not having enough fun abilities until late in leveling.
2) A tendency to be lower in PvE DPS and/or PVP utility.

I guess what I'm asking is this: are those third hybrid trees in each spec actually worth keeping? I have a feeling that the fact that they're shared between both advanced classes of a base class might actually be what's holding them back.

It'd be a significant change, but it might grant more "class" like options without requiring a complete overhaul of so many other game systems.
