ETA on Advanced Class change?

People have been asking for this since launch. The truth is, especially now that leveling is a joke since 4.0. They will never put in Advanced class respec. Not only is it just wrong to change your class (which is what your doing), but it's so easy to level, just make a new character with the AC you want.

This needs to stop.

I would even remove the respec. A role choice should have gravity and FOTM hoppers should be punished by having to buy a 60 token or level up that character.
If you feel the need to punish someone for playing a game you're doing it wrong.

Within the definitions SWTOR uses it's not changing your class (which determines your story and companions... but oh, look after 4.0 all characters have the same story and nearly the same companions anyway) it's changing your Advanced Class. Which is more like an advanced respec

And the argument for how easy it is to level a character now is actually more of a reason to allow AC swapping rather than prevent it.

I have only logged into one character since 5.0 dropped. ONE character. Instead of leveraging the ***already*** existing LEGACY system, you guys destroyed it with the garbage that is CXP.

Please add an option in the COMBAT PROFICIENCIES window (K) to change between advanced classes as well as discipline. Thanks.

Yea, I would say that since they changed the advanced class to a players primary class (chosen at character creation) they have changed the nature of an advanced class as a result.

So I would conclude that this change gives enough importance to the choice to warrant a restriction on allowing a player to change the class.

Just my opinion of course.

5.0 pretty much slammed the lid on this discussion. Awwwww darn.
Let this sink in, this game is Free to Play, boasts one of the most popular IPs on the planet and yet 76.47% of the servers are empty.

It's a three year old thread. This isn't happening.
Yes, another referral link; click it or don't. Free stuff for you, free stuff for me.

If the rationale for changing it so you choose your advanced class at level 1 was to enable players to more quicky get a feel for the AC, and whether they like it - and thus to minimize the effort if they end up wanting to re-roll and choose a different advanced class...

...then I think a better solution would have been to allow ONE advanced class change, only available up to a certain level (15 or 20). This would require NO re-rolling and re-making you character, NO re-leveling, NO re-playing any parts of the game.

Also it would not require removing the AC NPCs and dialogue. At this point, I'm not cool with the removal of ANY kind of class-specific content...

I still would not stand against a class change if it was allowed in some fashion. However, I have to admit I am VERY happy they set the AC choice for level 1.

For me personally this makes the choice much more meaningful, which is what I really wanted truth be told.
