    Thank god, now we don't have to worry about people whining about hybrid tax and being chosen in dungeons and raids.

    Nah, instead we'll have people complaining about the "equal opportunity suck" of Mage.

    The real question is if every Soul is meant to be balanced, or if certain souls are more important than others. Because that will lead to something akin to the PvH arguments on that other game's forums -- you know if Trion starts (or players start demanding that they) balancing, say, Cleric souls as a higher priority than say Mage souls because Clerics can heal, melee, tank, and caster DPS all in the same calling, so they need to be good at all of them, while the silly Mages and Rogues can just respec to the "right" souls for DPS because a "real" calling is complaining. =p

    You still have plenty of numbskulls in this game that look at the calling names and still try to associate them with classes from other MMOs. There are people that still think clerics should only heal, warriors should only tank, and rogues and mages are the only "pure" dps.

    It is a pretty interesting thing with the souls system. At first when I heard about it I thought that it will be impossible to balance it all. But when every calling has pretty much every tool available as slows, interrupts, gap closers, pushbacks, heals in different souls there is a kind of self balancing that can occur. When rogues start abusing ability X there will be an ability Y from some less popular mage soul that totally counters that, and ability X stops being abused. It is pretty clever. In one other very popular MMO that shall not be named they tried to do something similar, but they can't really fit everything in 3 talent trees and with a lot of classes it was pretty much impossible... Here is a very different story.

    Trust me, those people are finding new and improved ways to complain about everything in 300 threads per day, and trying to spread their unhappiness to others around them.

    My solution? Cake - and lots of it.
