Is there any chance of seeing this added to the game?

As far as I know, there are no story differences between advanced classes--so there's no reason to prohibit it.

There is light and dark path for each class, though. Good enough for both playthroughs, at least for me.

Hopefully not. They want choice to matter, and getting to switch classes pretty much eliminates one of the biggest choices in the game.

I'm a bit sceptical that i will make it to an alt for an inquistor and would very much like to alter the specialisation to suit my current need, much like ArenaNet have implied you will be able to do in Guildwars 2 (not released yet so we'll see)

having read this post on massively.com i doubt we'll be seeing that feature though... interview with Creative Director James Ohlen seems dumb struck by this question;

Q: How about advanced class respecs?

A: [Ten-second pause] Well, that's an interesting one. I would say, "I can't answer that one."

It seems this is the time sink they need to keep people replaying the same content just to get a healer and a full lightening build working.... boooo!!

roll on early access for us lazy December 5th pre-order'ers lol

Yeah,
Should not be able to switch AC.

Now it would be nice to have an item that lets you swap between two tree specs, ie your solo one and your group one, but within the same AC

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Also known as dual-speccing, which is supposedly coming out in the not-too-distant future.

Why do you care if others can switch their AC? If you feel like it's such an "important" choice then you can just not take advantage of it...the stories are identical, ACs for each class are nearly identical, the only reason they're leaving it out is because bioware wants the appearance of 8 classes.

You are choosing a class at 10. Choose wisely. So many people think of this as different specs. Nope, seperate classes. An MMO changes things up a tiny bit and people can't comprehend it
