Tabbed Gear / build options for Specs & PVP...

I'm sick and tired of swapping out my gear for PVP or OPS... Tank or DPS etc.

Just put a tab or two above the Hero Equipment screen... 1,2,3,4... You should not be charged to swap them either, just charge to reset said skills on said tab and call it a day.

These gear tabs should also include skills associated with them. That way I can just tab over to my PVE Tank build and in 1-click tab over to my PVP tank build also carrying with that my ability / skill point preferences for each!

It's a really simple idea that would CLEAR OUT my inventory and really make things a lot smoother for the community. Really they should just be check boxes that we can label. Tank PVE, Tank PVP, DPS 1, DPS 2 etc.

Do it Bioware.

Yeah, cos then I can whip out my DPS gear at mid in ACW and then stance-dance into soresu and pop on tank gear so I can go guard a node.

Wait, thats actually a pretty stupid idea...

You realize that you can already do this, right? There's more clicking involved, but I can do a field-respec in about 20 seconds, and switch my gear in about 10. Just because you find one easily avoidable flaw does not make this a bad idea.

I think the implementation could be a little smoother than what is suggested in the OP, but it would be very nice to be able to create several builds and easily switch between them. Make it a legacy perk as a "stage 2" to the field respec. Allow the option to "activate" a build, which would swap your gear and your spec.

I can get behind this.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

You could put restrictions on it easily to non combat area's or not being in combat etc.

But of course you're a cynic just here to trash **** rather than be creative about anything. The current system is cumbersome.

agree with op...with the addition that it cannot be done in combat (which probably would happen by default because you already can't swap gear in combat)
