    Default Soul Tree/ Soul Point Questions?

    From what I have read you pick your calling mage, healer, rouge, warrior, then you pick your sub class, as you level you can gain an addition sub class up to three different ones. In the image shown on the web site, a nightblade and ranger are shown in the soul tree.

    Can you only pick classes with in your calling or can you pick any classes? Basically can we have a combination like reaver / assassin or would they have to be from the same calling.

    Can you be a hybrid or can you only use one soul tree at a time. Say can you dump 10 points into Reaver, 20 points into Guardian effective making yourself a Reaver/Guard or can you only bee on class at a time.

    Also if are the number of soul points you acquire global or do you have to earn points for each soul tree? (like re-leveling each class in FF11 or a set number of points you get at a certain level in wow or earned on their own like AA in everquest)

    Since you can only have 3 classes you can attuned in your soul tree is their a way to change one of your three selected classes since there are 4 classes at least for each calling?

    You may only attune to souls in your calling.

    You may spend points in up to two souls at level 15, and up to 3 at level 30. I believe they've said these levels may change before launch.

    I believe you start the game with 2 points to spend, and earn 1 point per level thereafter, leaving you with 51 points at the max level of 50. You do not have to level up each soul independently.

    You can respec in town, and carry with you up to 4 Roles (builds) that you can swap between whenever you're out of combat. The swap takes 2 seconds to complete and has a green particle effect. So you can build out a solo, pvp, and 2 grouping specs and swap between them, or any other combination you want.

    You can only pick classes from your selected calling . You cannot have a reaver assasin combo since they belong to 2 diff callings.

    From what we saw in videos and pictures you can dump all 51 points into 1 soul and ignore the other 2 slots.

    They are global, 51 points in total, you can divide them in the 3 souls. You do not have 51 points for each soul.

    You can change ANY soul you have at any given time. Also you have 4 slots where you can save 4 different combos that you like so you can switch them by pressing one button any time

    Yep, you are locked into your Calling. So if you pick Rogue, your options are currently:
    1. Assassin
    2. Bard
    3. Blade Dancer
    4. Marksman
    5. Nightblade
    6. Ranger
    7. Riftstalker
    8. Saboteur

    If you're level 50, you could be say a 25 Guardian and a 25 Reaver if you want. Or a 50 Guardian. Or a 50 Reaver. Again, you need at least one class and can have a maximum of 3.

    Each level provides one point. Hopefully that answers your question.

    In some pictures you can see there is a 51st root point. Speculation from the demos and screenshots is that you get the 51st point if you are purely invested in that class. So if you're a 50 Guardian, you get the 51st point. If you're 45 Guardian and 5 Reaver, you won't get that 51st Root ability.

    You can change anywhere as long as you're out of combat. So if you're in a raid, and need to go from a tank spec to a damage dealer, you can.


    Hopefully I got most your questions

    1. Yes you can pick any class within your calling if you have collected the soul for it, some are harder to get and might require higher level.

    2. Yes you can be a hybrid, as many or as few in any of the 3 trees.

    3. Dont know too much about the soul points yet but it seems they are global.

    4. You will be able to change out souls if you collect new ones.
