Ok, I was factually incorrect and a bit rude I guess.
I'm sorry for that.
But they really really tell you very often that the it is permanent....

Can you please give us Server Transfers, so I can get back to a RP Server? Thanks.

The only problem I have with the current system is that there should be an epic quest chain to acquire your choice, rather than BOOM you're done. "To be come a sorcerer, head to the shrine of bullpiss on planet whatchamapiss, and get the ancient piss tablet of the sith. Use the tablet at the alter of urine to channel the wisdom of the ancestral sith sorcerers. "

or something like that^ with an epic cutscene

That's when I found out that YOU CAN NEVER CHANGE YOUR ADVANCED CLASS. Why wouldn't Bioware let players change their advanced class. At this point I was level 18 and if I wanted to go sniper I would have to repeat about 3 days of work. I have loved this game so far, but this is the first major issue that I have run into. I hate myself for saying this, but WoW did it better.
Because if you choose a "rogue" you can't suddenly "respec" it to "mage". Because this is what ACs are here-a normal, full time CLASS that shares some skills with other class.

Reroll and don't QQ.

Also, I'll just keep laughing at your "operatives pitiful damage output". It have most burst in game right now. L2P.

Its an architectural decision. They decided to go this route early in development and now its pretty set bro.

However, Id urge you to stick it out with the operative, the damage output may not feel as good at any given level, but from what I see in warzone pvp, all of the classes can handle themselves VERY capable dependent on what level you are at, what abilities/talents you are using and in what rotations.

My honest opinion is that they should simply remove the base classes. Pick your advanced class on creation and simply let things roll as they already do - but then there won't be any confusion. You rolled a Guardian, of course you can't respec Sentinel, you big silly.

The whole base class -> advanced class seems like designer fluff to me. It really serves no purpose in the game itself.

Spend a couple of hours and re-roll another agent. Then you can have both! It's not like you're 40th level. I actually like my operative and I find that it's easier to team as I can heal, but Snipers do have some awesome dps!

Sorry the system isn't what you want it to be, but it was told to you (in a very well acted cut scene) that you would not be able to change it after the fact.

I agree with the fact that we shouldn't be allowed to change a class mid way through game, as it should be. The only thing I am against is the fact that you have to go through the same storyline if you wanted to roll the other class.

Yes, you can space bar your way through the cutscenes, but it will get monotonous. In a perfect world, each class would have their own storyline.

Ok, but if you were playing say WoW, or Rifts or most any other game out there, how much variation is there between playing as a Mage and a Warrior when it comes to the quest/story line?

I mean yeah they might have more then one path to 50, but you'll still be doing a fair amount of the content again.

Not saying more story lines wouldn't be welcome.

Deal with it.
Bioware told you 10 times over (I just put a char above ten yesterday) that AC is permanent and CAN'T BE CHANGED.
Roll a new char, it takes about 5 or 6 hours. Less if you skip the conversations you already know now.
Idiotic logic.

I don't know of any MMOs where two "different" classes have 75% of the EXACT same abilities/spells.

You are aware that Bioware and Most of us all agree that the Advanced Classes know...CLASSES. Not Specs, Right? Because a Jedi Shadow is Not a Jedi Sage. They simply are Two Completely Different Things.

You are not going to be able to switch Classes. It's just that simple. Sorry, but no.
