    Summary of the basics of upcoming changes?

    As a player who's been out of the game for several month's i'm kinda confused by all this talk about class changes. The twitter transcript and the individual class diary's are helping a bit, but is there any place they talk in detail about the overall basics of what they're doing on a cross class platform, or is what i found all we got?

    What you've found is what is public. If you want more, find a way to get into the beta program. But if you manage that, you won't be able to tell anyone else.

    Vaguest "dev diaries" ever. I felt like I must have missed some release info but nope that's it.

    The dev diaries are about as specific as we know at this stage. The producer's letter earlier this year gave us the basic gist of things, which was expanded in dev chats. We will have fewer, more powerful skills and need to make choices to specialise in certain roles. The exact nature of those skills and choices remains to be seen, and I imagine some of that is still up in the air while the beta is ongoing. Hopefully they will give us a dev diary outlining the overall concept of the changes, why they were deemed necessary, how they compare to the old system, and how it will work going forward.

    Actually, no. I am talking about a general dev diary outlining the overall concept of the changes, without necessarily being class specific (though some class examples would help).

    Also it's all subject to change before release. At this particular point in a typical beta, things are not carved in stone. So it's still a bit early really to list the fine details of class changes. So we're just getting broad overviews. When beta NDA is opened up we'll get a ton of information all at once.

    Similar to SWTOR?

    Does anyone think that this is looking to be similar to the way SWTOR does its classes?
