At level 10 you don't really comprehend just how important this decision is until you make the wrong choice and there is no way to fix it; unless you start all over again.
Forums. Friends. These things tell you what you need to know to make a decision.
On top of that, this is a game, not life. Unlike life, you CAN reroll.

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.
You're obviously too young to remember SW:G

This is not Dungeons & Dragons.
"Just say no." If you feel like you are only there for generating Comms for someone else, then just stay away from PvP. Don't let yourself get farmed !

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.
just loled on 3 days of work.... it take 3 hours or so to lvl 18 max.

quickest fast to lvl up in pve is 7 days from 1 to lvl 55

i leveled all my toons strictly in pvp, it takes forever, still 2.5 - 3 weeks to lvl 55, not so much if you take in concern you play the game 2 years ...

this thread is for lazy ppl ...

This thread is for people who don't pay attention to the prompt that says, "This choice is permanent, once made you cannot change it."

Like it's been said by dozens of posters, games don't let you change from being a mage to a warrior, a rogue to a priest, or in this case an operative to a sniper.

To be fair, it's not that drastic a choice and there have been games that allow that much of a choice. I don't have a dog in this hunt, I have all 16 ACs finished, but I have never understood why people care what others do with their characters. Yes, you are correct, the game makes it VERY OBVIOUS that the choice of an AC is permanent.

But IMO, it is always a mistake to ask players to make serious meaningful choices like this with inadequate information. Every MMO I've ever played asks this of players somewhere along the way and devs are always surprised when people ask to change it.

I would like it if AC was chosen very early and players should be able to use the basic abilities of the class by the time they leave the starter planets. That way they can determine what they really want to do. Operatives and Sages for example, play significantly differently after picking their AC than before. It's a jarring change for a new player who doesn't really get why his long range class is suddenly doing most of its work from 10 meters or the Jedi who stops developing her lightsaber abilities in favor of being a mage.

Um.. Actually yes WoW lets you change your Class entirely these days. In fact you can have Dual Classes, and Dual specs on each (if I remember right).

So Yea I see no reason why you should not be able to change your AC or be able to pic both and have a main and an Off Class. (As long as you remain the same "Main" class. Like (Operative or Warrior etc).

I made a Councilor, Chose shadow got to level 12, Hated it, Already made friends had a freinds list etc. Really don't feel like re rolling and loosing all of that. (I like my name too).

So, pardon my french but not being able to change your AC is well... ********. And it's one of the major reasons Swtor has lost so many players. No one wants to reroll after they've made friends leveled, and want to keep the same name. No one wants to regrind 4-5 days of work.

the fact that Bioware Forces you too is exactly that, ********. And a TON of people have left the game simply because of that fact.

A description telling you about an Advanced class is not the same as playing it, and you will never know if you like an AC until you play it. Trust me on this, I've been playing since beta.

So it is simply asinine for Bio-ware to impose a rule that says you can NEVER change your AC. We told BO this in Alpha, we told BO this is Beta, and we to this day are still screaming at Bioware to allow you to change your AC. Your not changing from a Consoleer to a trooper, Your changing from a Con AC to a CON AC. (Or whatever). It's a simple matter of refunding your spec points and switching your AC. It's not difficult and it interferes with nothing game wise.

I might get laughed at but I used to play Maplestory, and before you choose your path, they have a video option for you to view showing these classes using their abilities in a trailer fashion... I would've love to have that =P

It takes 5-6 hours from 1 to 11. 3 hours? No, at least not without exploits.
