    Only if you never switch roles.
    Some, however, like to do that.

    well from a rogue point of vieuw 4 is not enough

    you want:
    1 melee dps spec.
    1 ranged dps spec
    1 bard spec
    1 tank spec
    1 pvp spec
    1 solo spec


    got my point ? and then you can't even make bossfight specific specs.

    I think that's Trion's intention actually. You have to choose what you want to work with and run that way. It's a lot of effort to change around everything (ok, *I* hate respeccing). Part of he game is choice so that everybody doesn't have the same cookie cutter roles going on. At least, I'm sure that's the intention. I'm not sure how well that's working since I hear a lot of pyro and assassin builds out there that are always being used.

    Not sure really. I'm totally fine with four, but then again I'm a cleric. Most of my souls overlap in terms of their purpose.

    Ps: This belongs elsewhere, but I've noticed lately that I take down assassins when thrifty to gank me as a cabalist/inquisitor... Is that normal or was that a patching thing?

    Anyway, there's my thoughts!

    Simply put, 4 is not really enough - from a Rogue perspective.

    I need a ranged instance build, tank instance build, and support instance build right off. That leaves me with room for one role geared towards PvP, meaning I can't have a ranged PvP and melee PvP role etc etc.

    There are only 4 classes so you only need 4 character slots and you can be any class combo possible in the game.

    But I agree that I would like more roles. And not just rogues. Four is just not enough for someone who likes to both PVP and PVE, as well as fill multiple roles such as heal/dps/tank/support/melee/range/etc... MY main is a mage, and I find myself pigeon-holed into 1 or 2 pvp and pve specs, or having to constantly respec (which gets extremely tiresome). I could easily create 10 different roles and use all of them. If I hadn't already invested so much into my current character I would have rolled two 50s of the same class. One for PVP only and one for PVE only so that I could have more role options.

    Four is more than any other MMO I have seen. WoW gave you two, most only give you one. Rift has more character versatililty than any game I have seen. Can you really use more than four on such a frequent basis? There is always the respec option.

    Yes. I can use more than 4 on just one dungeon run and I cant respec in the middle of a dungeon.

    Don't get me wrong, I love that I can swap roles in the middle of a dungeon, it really sets this game apart from others, but they could make it even better if I didn't have to constantly respec just to get the most out of my character.

    Spoken like someone who doesn't respec. =P

    It's not just re-allocating all those points. Most of the work is in reorganising all the skills and macros. Maybe you could work with 12 random skills on the main bar and all others non-existant. I could not.

    You have the ability to pay your trainer to reset your souls.

    Use it.

    Four slots is plenty.

    i agree, 4 is not enough. what makes this game shine is the soul system. it's a theory crafter's dream come true.

    as mage, i need
    1 chloro
    1 archon
    1 pvp
    1 5 man
    1 20 man (yes, i use a different spec for greenscale)
    1 for testing builds.

    it wouldn't be bad if there was just an option to save profiles of builds, or something along those lines. having to go back to the trainer and lose all the info, just to have to manually place it all again is pretty annoying.

    Everyone who says you can just respec clearly doesn't. Yes I know you can respec, I do it constantly. But its expensive, time consuming, and can't be done in a dungeon or WF when you need it the most. Which is why I, and others like me, want more roles.

    Anyone opposed to this is just being an ***. It doesn't affect you any to have more roles so why be against it? Its a good idea and plenty of people would use the additional roles.
