Deal with it.

Except DCUO which allowed it (may have been a 1 off thing) and EQ2 which always allowed you to change your class via betrayal.

Would I get banned for posting a Picard Facepalm? Because I'm really really really tempted.

3 days of work to level 18? Wow maybe you should DO IT AGAIN so you can learn to play a litttle bit better. i can get to level 18 in like 3 hours of work.....

So if you played 30 minutes a day it would take you 6 days?

lol What revived this dead thread.

It would be cool through if you switch AC using CM. That for once would be worth CC, unless it costs 1,000

actually you can change your class in DCUO
to be clear - you dont have classes there just powers but this is a class (another role: healer, controller, tank, dps) and you can change it by the DCUO cartel coins (it has another name there but i dont remember).
You just need new items becase you cannot wear tank items when you are a healer etc. So i think it could be done in SW TOR to change advanced class - you just will need new items for this class :P

I love everything about this game so far except that "You Can't Change Your Advance Class". At level 10 you don't really have the full experience yet. In spite of this you are expected to make an informed decision on something of such major importance. At level 10 you don't really comprehend just how important this decision is until you make the wrong choice and there is no way to fix it; unless you start all over again.

Apparently you're not one of those people that researches things before making decisions.

Apparently you're not one of those people that doesn't read before making decisions because the AC trainer popup TELLS YOU that you cannot change your AC.

You cannot change your AC, in part, because you need to learn how to actually play your class. When you get to 55 and ask 'derp, I didn't know I had X ability, what does it do?' many people wish to become violent. Just because WoW does it, and just because you like to take the easy route, doesn't make it a good idea.

Leveling from 1-10 takes 3 hours. Reroll.
