Next you will be telling me the PVP Specs should be 100% viable in progression raids too ?!
I quit WOW because of all the QQ people were doing , they wanted every Tank , Healer and DPS to be Viable and they Got it . All the Classes are the same, total garbage !
I liked to have to change specs when i change rolls in the game , leveling specs are good because you do not have full talents so a spec combo that works with few tools in leveling would be super OP at 50. I like having a unique PVP and Soloing Spec . What i do not ever want to see i one spec that a player can stay in forever and be 100% in no matter what they are doing !
god really PVP Survivability ?! as a 33/33/0 Chrolo / Lock / Dom i am un kill able as it is! had a rogue and a warrior beating on me for 5 mins , they finally gave up in disgust . that is the Mage tank spec , i do not want any other mage spec to be as survivable as it is . my Pyro / Lock / Arch is a glass cannon , he dies in a stiff wind blows his way. that is the point i trade Survivability for DPS , i want a game where you have to change specs to match the condition you find your self in .
On my pyro mage i am at the top of the dps in most WF , on my Lock , chrolo i am mid on both DPS and Healing and low on deaths . If you are not a P50 , and you get blown over , well its not the spec its your gear, thats is a different gripe.
Day after day comes....yet no info about 1.10 or expansion. I have bad feeling about this ;/
The current Summerfest event ends on 25th July, and according to the GTV whiteboard, an estimate for the start of 1.10 would be 29th August 2012 (although this might have changed since the announcement by GW2 of its launch on 28th August 2012).
In this case, looking at previous PTS notes we'll probably hear about 1.10 Patch Notes Set #1 some time, perhaps a week or two after Summerfest ends.
If 1.10 is the patch before Storm Legion and we don't have a 1.11, I am guessing that it will have a world event introducing the beginning of Storm Legion. I.e., it will be something along the lines of the Travel Stones world event that occured the patch before we got Ember Isle.
Elrar confirmed on the live stream that 1.10 will make it easier to do content with the opposite faction.. YES!
Personally, I like when developers realize things are incorrect with a soul or class and make these sweeping changes but most do not. I especially like it when it is not my favorite soul and it is somebody else's-- don't touch my souls bro! .
Nothing in the Mage souls are overtly broken, clunky, and some bugs, overly complicated rotations, a couple of really powerful talents that should be base skill. I am of the opinion that they should leave most alone and let the expansion offer us a Tabula Rosa ( Clean Slate ) and spend their time and money making the expansion as polished as possible.
Well that's my two cents

Some people like the flavour that a particular soul brings to the table. Some people want to run around with their elemental pets and play all the content of the game with the spec they enjoy the most. Do they deserve to be laughed (or worse) off a PvP field because they don't have Pyro shoehorned in?
It's an incredibly difficult situation because the flexibility the soul system promises will always be at odds with the intolerance of the player base. Very similar to the contrast between the player who derives joy from playing the class that suits them best and the player who is only happy when they are riding the top of the DPS/HPS charts. (Or the lucky ones to whom these categories overlap from time to time)
Depending on which camp of player you fall into, RIFT either has 32 souls of variety, or 4 somewhat similar classes. RIFT is a very interesting case study because more often or not, the variety it offers is entirely dependant on the person playing.
Should all the souls be the same? Absolutely not. Should they all be viable? Absolutely.
On an unrelated note, Venditte's avatar and sig pictures creep me out. That is all.
