    Smile Any chance for an exclusive faction soul?

    it might be great if both factions have 1 exclusive soul in each role since both side have different theme.
    guardian worship their gods, so a new soul should relate to their gods
    defiants use technology to make their own way, so a new soul should relate to technology

    I can't help to see some soul like sabo is more relate to defiants and faerie made druid soul more relate to guardians.

    The callings and souls look hard enough to balance already. The 2 would have to be balanced against each other and then to the rest of them and it's a lot of extra work for no good gameplay-related reason. Sure it would make sense lore-wise but gameplay is more important for a lot of people.

    originally trion was going to lock some souls to faction but they decided that it was a bad idea.
    for eg. the plan was to make paladin available only to guardians and voidknight only to defiants.
    so, how do defiants would run a dungeon/raid without their main tanking soul?
    only way this would work is if the splitting was just fictional - exactly the same soul on both sides with exactly the same skills but changing names and visual effects.

    +1
    for example the summoning soul
    guardians faction just use the same summon atm
    while defiants faction summon are robot / drone (soul's name is more like technician or engineer)

    Agree, in world of warcraft, before stupid TBC, horde had shamans and alliance had paladins, worked perfect! Now horde and alliance has both >_>

    Cool idea! ^^

    Worked perfect? There was non-stop whining from both sides.

    Keeping both sides identical is the only smart way to set up a game like this. Anything else is just asking for trouble.

    Sounds like the split should have been Paladin and Reaver

    If you look at their trees in beta5, they were borderline clones of each other
