    I'd be Holy Paladin and Unholy Death Knight... and my class should be called: Normal Man.

    I would be a Prot Warrior/Prot Pally.

    Dual-wield Shields.

    Smite everything with an angry disposition.

    Lack of balance =/= homogenization.

    If its already hard to balance 11 classes, a total of 100 customizations (spelling ik), balance would be shitshow

    The OP is not talking about being a pally/druid in the same spec. Its pally one spec and druid for second spec, so you can be pally OR druid not both at the same time.

    I don't think so. There was an MMO a few years ago called Runes of Magic that made it work but that game was entirely built around a dual class system. WoW wasn't.

    I like the fact that those decisions are shot down by taking to heart where lore finds it justified. If you justified it with lore then yes.

    With what you have written down I would say no.

    Guild Wars did it.

    It was gamebreaking imbalance and developer headaches for the next 8 years.

    This would lead to a gearing nightmare, imagine I need that staff for my mage spec and I need that 2h sword for my DK spec. Bliz would need to do an even bigger overhaul on the gearing system.

    Maybe if the limited it to some specific class combos, but things like priest/dk or paladin/warlock or druid/dk are just stupid.

    But all the special snowflakes would melt if they couldn't be whatever retarded combo they wanted.

    Edit: didnt read it right. I see what you are saying. Interesting concept, not sure how it would work though.

    technically, we already have this. they just need to shift the emphasis to the battletag and away from the character.

    the amount of tech hurdles needed to complete the transition are daunting tho.

    we've seen a lot of shifting towards account-wide, but I'm not sure blizzard will ever embrace 'single-character' philosophy 100%.

    there's a catch 22 with becoming invested in your character's identity. you can form deeper and more true relationships with your friends and even randoms in your local community/server(s), but the downside is that when a negative experience comes, you can't simply slip into the anonymity of the internet by playing under a different character.

    personally, i'd rather have a one-character system, if it meant an easier time remembering guildies and a shorter ignore list.

    Maybe if it was limited by class. Example, you could be a Discipline Paladin, or a Marksmanship Rogue, but please, no Brewmaster Death Knights.

  17. #37
    No, keep this and the bastard child Med'an out of the game, please!
    At times, the frequent redundancy and stupidity of this forum turns me into an argumentative ass.

    To most of you, I apologize in advance. I will attempt to be nicer.

    I always pined for something like this, but in a non-lore affecting kinda way (well, sort of).

    Basically, you can play 2 classes (fixed) on one character. You need to level both those classes from 1-90 as you would any alt, (so you could be a 90 Paladin / 60 Rogue for example), but ingame they are treated the same. Same inventory, bank, void storage, raid lockouts, REPs etc... not sure about professions, but for the sake of consistency, same professions.

    You can't swap your active class ingame, only via a relog, and no buffs or anything like that carry over.

    To me, this is the perfect trade-off from having 2 separate characters (main/alt). You would lose a lot of "perks" from having separate characters, but gain some QoL improvements for those who like to play classes but not repeat all the tedious crap like dailies/rep, essentially allowing you to progress 2 characters simultaneously, while only gearing one (due to a shared raid lockout).

    limit the amount of abilities and passives available a a single time..

    Warlock/pally? That's a death knight

    the others? Some seriously hardcore character builds like out of some rock song that our grandparents hated.

    Titans are a race, durr.... Sargeras is clearly a Warrior, shaman, warlock sprinkled with paladin for more buffs.
