This is terrible. I have to go back to healing, and back to gunnery (dps) in order to heal some heroics and flashpoints. But when questing as a healer, ITS MISERABLY SLOW.

Make respecs like 10k credits max. I don't understand why you feel the need to charge outrageous sums of credits for a respec.

I mean if you aren't going to have some form of dual spec at launch, make sure that respccing doesn't cost me my genitals.


***EDIT***

My respec now costs 99880 credits (or something around that). I can't buy anything from the GTN, I can't do what I want to do with my cash beacause of these ridiculous respec costs. I like doing different things with my single toon. I like this toon, A lot. Why do I have to take the shaft because I like experimenting?

I see there's a 1 free respec a week, and then it goes up. This is simply not enough.

Let your players have the freedom of exploration without the moneysink. There's already PLENTY of money sinks in this game to suit biowares intended goals/purposes. But players like me, who like to try out different specs, experiment, and just test different things out.....we have next to 0 cash. All the time. It's a pain in the neck.

There are MMO's that allow you to have multiple specs to help facilitate the need to experiment, WITHOUT charging you an arm and a leg. Until features like these are employed, I will never be able to purchase the level 2, and 3 Mount training because respecs take all my cash away.

However, we're still actively monitoring the forums and venues of player feedback, collecting information helpful to prioritize the feature development, issues, etc.

On the topic of skill respecs, we are aware that it is a popular request to have more versatility in how and when to respec (which includes questions of cost) and we've already decided to pursue the idea of more readily available respecs for players. Pricing changes are also very much under consideration.

Just so you understand my position on the topic: I don't think skill respec should be rare or handled very restrictively. I'm actually all for players experimenting with different skill sets once they have a good grip of their character.

I don't want people to respec in the middle of combat or in between defeats in a Warzone or Operation, but other than that, I think respec is a positive thing for the game. If we find that the current pricing is too prohibitive for somewhat experienced players, we'll make adjustments.

Just baffling that they did this given that healing in PvE is not a viable leveling spec, yet in warfronts / pvp it's always healers in short supply

Dual spec, like LFG/LFD, needs to be in this game. I don't care what the WoW haters say. It is some of the best tools to ever come to MMOs.

And before the LFG haters pull me apart. I don't think it should be like WoW. Just intra-server would be fine.

Just give us anything better than the turd we have now.

I really don't want this feature. All classes are equally viable to level with. If you want to be a healer, level a healer. Nobody forces you to respec to heal one raid then dps a flashpoint. You choose to do that. It comes at a cost.

I have friends leveling as healing mercs and operatives.

Both of them are leveling just as fast as my dps merc, and they solo elites better than i do with a healing companion.

Healing is a VERY viable way to level. Whether you want to or not is another matter.
