It was in SWG for about 5 years, you could swap from Jedi to commando to bounty hunter to spy to entertainer to crafter to medic to jedi as often as you wanted (or could afford with ingame credits, but could easily do it 10 times before it was a financial strain).

The universe didnt implode and profession variety still existed even when class blance shifted around.

I dont see anything THAT extreme ever happening for TOR since your class story would be in turmoil and you already have a squad of class specific companions and a class specific ship. But changing ACs wouldnt have any of those issues. Personally I wouldnt have an issue with it as it could be balanced by simply putting a long lockout (like say 180 days). That would allow a player to swap once in a great while (once every six months) for the sake of variety or mistaken class selection but long enough to prevent changing with every update. Could also make it require a certain legacy level.

because reading and listening to the quest guy when you chose your AC is hard....

are you trolling at me?

i've choose my adv. class 4 monthes ago and i didn't see a banner that was saying "pay attention within 4 monthes your class will be nerfed and such a DPS the Vanguard AC will be 1000 times better"

I have a Shadow at level 50, and would like to play a Sage. I don't want to have to do the same storyline, though, since I already know it. I wouldn't mind creating a character from another class, since that would let me enjoy a whole new storyline, but I would really find levelling another Consular boring.

It just seems reasonable to allow people to change AC. It might be made with a long cooldown like a previous poster suggested, or it might require retraining all the AC abilities again, which would make it a costly alternative, especially at high levels.

If you want to argument, please argument, not with sarcasm, or arguments like "it was made like this, it can't be changed" but by telling in what way would the game be damaged.

Yes, a 180 days possibility to respect the AC would be lovely and reasonably.

With 1.2 the Tank AC like Vanguard and Juggernaut that are using the shared DPS tree with the other AC are better than it.

Looks at the Vanguard/Commando Assault Specialist. What is most effective?

Vanguard/Powertech Assault Specialist is much better than Commando/Mercenary Assault Specialist build.

I've spent 4 monthes improving my commando and now i have to trash it. Even a TANK is doing more DPS than me.

BW LET ME CHANGE MY ADVANCED CLASS.

Reroll. Bioware should NEVER allow this.

If those classes are "tank" classes, then yours is a "healing" class. Why should the healing DPS tree do more damage than the tank DPS tree? Also, this some times happens in MMOs. Sooner or later, they'll put out more nerfs and buffs and the tables may turn.

This still wouldn't appease PVPers. They'd swap, Bioware would change nerf or buff something a month later and they'd be right back to complaining.
