Its,..2013 and I think we all can agree something needs to change. I am talking about the old, worn out and tired system of Tank, DPS, and Heal. It really is obsolete in this day and age,...everyone...EVERYONE no matter what class you are ....wants to beat on the bad guy,..they want to slay,..ok.....they don't want to follow rules in fights...they just want to beat on stuff and watch stuff die

This notion that you have to have dps, heal and tank in fights is old school...it's past its time

Ask anyone...ANYONE...and they will tell you...they just want to Tank n Spank and get hell outta there and collect the commendations. In and Out..simple..fast and done

As it is now,...what do people do in flashpoints? Lol...they skip trash and go directly to Boss and kill for the phat lewt. Spacebar commandos and don't you dare listen to the story...rush to the Boss...get your objective and done

Dps fights stuff that the tank isn't even fighting ROFL...healer is healing the dps'rs instead of the tank ROFL...tank is has no clue what aggro is ROFL.....i mean it is total chaos in mmo gaming now days. It is rare to find a coordinated group in traditional tank, heal and dps roles working like a swiss watch

Recommendation:
1. Give everyone a natural heal buff over time duration
2. Give everyone heavy armor
3. Give everyone an equal amount of dps
4. Get rid of need and pass and make all loot drop particular to your class and automatically go into your inventory

If you disagree with this post....see the thread titled....Don't Get Discouraged by Jerks in Pug's, FP's and Op's. I am offering a solution to eliminate jerks in mmo's,..well no way to totally eliminate jerks but you get the idea

Not disagreeing with you and yet not agreeing with you either. But you cant use the term TANK N SPANK when trying to get the trinity removed. The term TANK N SPANK means to have someone TANK a boss and others kill it. I personally hate DPS. I love healing and tanking. I could careless about how much damage I put out or to just whack on a boss until its dead.

So your idea that EVERYONE wants to be the same cookie cutter class is an illusion you have in your own mind about the trinity.

so basicly because you get tanks who don't know how to do their job you propose just removeing it?

Go play GW2 if you're so interested in this. Oh wait, that game is boring as hell after a couple of weeks.

The trinity works fine for this game. QQ somewhere else.

Ok than what do think a game should be than? The regen crap dont work go look at DCuonline.

It to funny when people say to get rid of tank,heal, dps aspect. All the areas will be simple dps PEW PEW easy peasy boring MMO...Wasnt that anarchy online?

They tried this in Guild Wars 2. Guess what the biggest complaint is in the game?

Lack of dedicated roles.

I really like the Trinity-less Guild Wars 2, whenever I feel like go PvPing, I log out SWTOR and log in GW2.

I also really like the dungeons there.


However, I hate leveling there, this game hands down has the best leveling/eusting experience of all MMO.


So, if they adapted GW2's combat mechanics into this game it would be the ultimate game for me.

This would require a redesign not only of every class and every spec, but every dungeon and every raid.

Yes, the trinity feels old, especially the tanking aspect, but realistically this would require a whole new game. And there are games out there (GW2) that do this.
