    Lightbulb 6th Role and why...

    I'm Mage... Yeah and is not QQ ;]
    I heard on PST about 6th slot for role coming soon. But there is no info about it in 1.4 patch notes.
    That was rumor probably.
    Most reason is Chloromancer and Raiding...
    Atm. I need to use 2 build:
    - 51 chlor - Tank heal
    - 36 chlor - AOE

    Good Mage should have also minimum 2 DPS build's and Archon
    That give us 5 roles in use.
    But what with solo playin?
    I want to have also 1 build for PvE solo content...
    I have enough of re-specing every 2 days for raiding.

    Yes, I know someone will tell get dedicated chloro's, archon's and dps-ing mage's. NO! If You like be bored playing 1 role all the time then go for it Not me.

    Cheers,
    Sorry for my English


    I will also wake up 1 thread:

    100% agree!

    I could potentially fill up to 10 roles, not gonna lie.

    I also made a thread about it, you can check it here: http://forums.riftgame.com/rift-gene...ore-roles.html

    Please TRION, add more roles in 1.4!

    Agreed, 6th role with an extra 10 macro slots for it (bringing the total up to 60.) A raid warrior tank can easily use 4-5 roles for tanking builds alone. Toss in a dps spec and a single PvP spec and you are already at 7 roles. I have no doubt I could fill 8 easily.

    On a not unimportant side note: if you add new roles, please do not increase the cost by a lot again!!! I still don't have the 5th role because I'm an artifact collector and never have 100p in my bags....

    More roles and more macro slots would be awesome!

    I usually just use two roles on my warrior - DPS and tank - and the rest are all things I decided would be fun to try out (Paladin + Beastmaster what). If I were actually planning on optimising my stuff, though, I'd probably have well more than that... Grindy AoE DPS, single target boss DPS, AoE dungeon DPS, PvP DPS; single target boss tank, trash tank, raid off-tank, PvP tank...

    I expect more roles and macro slots will be available in patches in the near future.

    spec is supposed to matter. its why we were given limits to them in the first place. where does the "i need just 1 more trion! then ill be happy!" end? if you really wanted all of this "freedom" then you would be asking for the ability to respec at will.

    Spec does matter. That's WHY people have so many roles. People aren't asking for the ability to switch roles mid-fight. They're asking for the ability to store more roles without having to go back to Meridian or Sanctum to respec. I don't see any reason to limit the number of roles a player can have.

    I'm a warrior tank who sometimes DPSes for raids. I have 4 different tank roles for different encounters. I have one raid DPS role. I would love to have 1 or 2 more tank roles, but I just don't have the room for it. I'd also love to have a second DPS role. On top of all of that, I don't even bother to PvP because I don't have room for a PvP role and I don't want to respec several times a week. I could easily fill 9 roles.

    6th role: 1kp
    7th: 10kp
    8th: 100kp


    Yeah, I think that sounds about right.

    Hmm as a cleric, let's see. I need:

    -Raid healing spec
    -Dungeon healing spec
    -PvP healing sp... oh nvm won't be needing that one.
    -AOE DPS spec
    -ST DPS spec
    -Tanking spec
    -PvP spec

    Yes, I could support this as long as it's not too expensive. P.S. 100 plat for the 5th role is too expensive.
    I have a photoshopic memory. I remember everything you say or do exactly the way I want to.
