0/10

The sad thing is, there are actually people here who believe a person should relevel another toon the exact same way just to play a different spec from within the AC. They want you to have 3 lvl 50s of the same character so you can play all 3 trees. Foolish...

Just copy Rift's system and let us buy extra slots for specs.

The current system is just making the ability to find tanks and healers even worse then it otherwise would be.

Class choices are made to stick, otherwise (as in the mmo that shall not be named) before dual spec, people would carry around 2 sets of gear and pay a tiny amount to change things up. If you don't want to pay, make a new character for the other roll

No, it shouldn't. Please don't cave on this Bioware. Make choices that people make matter. Don't turn this into another on the fly change your role WoW.

Thanks.

Why you think is incompetent? Maybe its same fun like changing equipment? You already can't change your advanced class so there are not many options left in skills.

And tbh, there is a game that is build arround skill changes and its the best pvp mmorpg so far - Guild Wars. Thousands of players enjoy that system and it works so well.
I can't understand why I can't do skill modifications arround only 3 trees and really few skills, that I can count on my fingers, comparing to GW this is nothing...

I am level 40 and easily making 50k + credit an hour doing missions and what not. Rising cost for respeccing is a valid thing.

Further more, this is a story based mmorpg, your character being the one defining the story. So yes your choices should have a strong impact on the character - didnt see Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine swapping spec every other day did ya?

Pick 1 thing, and play it. Or swap once in a while and pay the price.

Ya its always fun to sit around forever with an almost full group spamming "LF healer" or "LF tank" especially when some of your people in group have a tree for healing/tank. This 90s mentality of extremely strict perma choice in MMOs died out a decade ago.

You can tank as a jugg without points in the immortal tree. And stop respeccing so much. Problem solved. The cost is EXTREMELY low compared to what you end up with at level cap. Which is why respecs start low and go up.
