Now that the background questions are done, how about some more concrete info about what this all actually means?
How many points will a lvl 95 character have to spent? I'm guessing somewhere in the 50-60 range based on a point every other level plus many class deeds giving points.
How many points will it take to fill one of the 3 trees and/or how many total points would it take to fill every trait?
How do the trees actually work? Is this a linear tree with branches where I must get X trait to progress down the X branch to acquire trait Y, which is the one I actually want? Will there be multiple points to spend in a given trait, and will it be required to spend multiple points on trait X to unlock trait Y? How do we unlock legendary traits for each tree, do we simply have to spend 30 points or whatever tree to unlock the capstone Legendary, or must we unlock specific traits to open the Legendary?
About how many skills can we expect a given tree to unlock (if fully invested in the tree)? 2, 10? will it be significantly different for different classes and trees?
20 Skills for a given class seems REALLY low. What can you say, if anything, to allay my fear that these changes are simplifying classes as much as anything else? Speaking for my warden, there are exactly 2 gambits I don't ever use, or feel are an important part of my arsenal. I'm unsure how you can maintain what we are capable of providing in a given role while bringing our gambits down to 20ish, without consolidating effects, which is just simplification for the sake of simplification. This is a little more pertinent to me on warden, but looking over my skill bars on Guardian, 20 skills wouldn't really cut it there either, without effect consolidation.
I've much more to ask if the Devs continue to reply to this thread.
