I actually thought advanced classes were trees

I've always wanted to be an end-game vanguard because I preferred the mobility and play style I saw on the trailers

I assumed that the two "Advanced" classes were simply talent trees like in WoW. I chose commando because I assumed it would be the most efficient at grinding and leveling, and it was

But then I hit 47 and decided to "Respec", and then that was when I finally realized that you could not switch advanced classes.

so, kind of stuck here. I'd really hate to replay the entire story all over again and lose my progress. Any news on if we can respec advanced classes?

The developers flip-flop from interview to interview as to whether they support or deny Advanced Class switching. Before release, the developers mentioned that they planned on having AC swapping at some point. After release, they categorically denied it. Now, with the Cartel Shop out and the developers sending mixed signals once again (I've heard tell saying yes and no from people that spoke to developers at cons), it's even fuzzier though it's pretty much guaranteed that, if it does come out, it's almost guaranteed to be a cartel coin option: implementing it as a quest or standard option isn't gonna be likely since it involves a lot more work (in the case of the quest) with less fiscal payout.

God it would be chaos if they did that. Even though you would think it would be simple code, I could easily see them completely screwing the pooch and messing something completely unrelated up. Not to mention how much worse the QQing about FOTW would get.

OP, I know in your situation it would be helpful, but I hope that BioWare never allows for AC changes.

The AC choice is one that really determines what roles you can fulfill, your play style, etc. Its arguably even more important than your base class choice. Its also one of the more unique aspects to this game. TOR has a lot of good things going for it but if an AC change is implemented it would really ruin the entire aspect of choosing classes. It would invalidate any real importance to that choice.

Out of curiosity, what did you think it meant when it said "Are you sure? This choice is permanent" ?

I'd say you should roll a powertech bounty hunter since its the same exact class as a vanguard, but with a different story.

I hope they never offer AC swaps...can you imagine how much re rolling would be going on after a new "fotm" class appears? Classes that are weak or have been nerfed will all be dropped for the other AC.
