3 out of 3 dev diaries with the same language. It seems safe to bury the notion the Devs put forward before that hybridization would be reduced in this new traiting system.
In the grand scheme, dropping stances is the right move, I do question whether its the right move when coupled with the skill pruning we are getting. Will skills like ebbing and rising ire continue to be one skill, and which function it fulfills based is on how you are traited?
The ramifications of fully hybrid builds remaining possible and even prominent, all while reducing the overall utility of classes via skill reduction is downright scary to me.
The major mechanic being added to the old ardour line makes it sound like this will remain a solo-grinder stance, rather than something that is truly viable for any group content we are left with in HD.
As always, more details, these Dev diaries are barely a couple paragraphs. If you're completely rewriting our classes, knowing what to expect before the expansion goes live would be much appreciated.
