While my first reaction to the proposed trait trees was shock and horror, I think my opinion has mellowed. Our current trait setup and pure trees are merely specific cases of trait graphs, so perhaps the devs have an alternative topology planned than just 3 separate "trees". For example, it isn't required that we even have 3 distinct trait lines, or that all classes be treated the same way. I could imagine captains, as a hybrid class, having a more free flowing or interconnected graph, while minstrels, to concentrate on a specific role, could have less mixing. This could be more fun than we may have envisioned.

Undo the U12 class changes. The trait trees were, are, and will always be a bad idea.
