    I want to be Death Knight and Paladin at the same time. Eff the lore!

    I am a champion of the Light but the Light has abandoned me because of my state of Undeath!

    So if you play two different class, you have to get gear for both of them (giving that they wear different type of gear)... what's the difference from rolling two characters now?..

    Everything that comes from only playing 1 character.... not having to repeat Rep for example.

    On the character alone, it would be possible to sort things out. The problem would come, as another poster already pointed out, when we hit gearing drama (and the associated issue of sorting out rolls).

    So my gnome warrior could suddenly flip gears and be a priest? Why?

    Then we're back to having to carry around a ton of gear (one of the best changes of WOD is the end of that crap), only instead of an alternate spec its an entirely separate class' gear. Sorry but no thank you.

    I don't think it would work, imagine how strange it would be a random guy who is a Warrior simply changing his class to a Hunter right in front of you. It is already painful to grind different sets for two different specs, now consider doing this with two different classes, it simply would be a hell of a pain. However, pretty much everyone who would originally level a DPS-only class like Warlocks or Mages would have a tank or healer secondary class just to have faster queues and level up faster, thus making the dungeon queue for DPS dudes faster, since there would be a considerable larger number of healers and tanks.

    Take the best of two characters, skills, achievements, rep, etc... now, squish it into one character. You now have a Gnome Derto Warlock/Frost Mage who can PvE on one class and PvP on the other without switching gear, or logging out of the game.

    If the gear is housed in the bank and the gear manager handles it without taking up personal bag space... why not? Think about it. All grouped up, ready for Celestials and you are now short a healer (no pun intended). You flip classes from your Fury Warrior to your Disc Priest and now you can easily back fill a DPS slot... OR, you can DPS between heals. It's a win/win.

    Sounds awful.... and a lore abomination to boot...
    even without the lore-damage... it's just plain horrible... I'd like to know my Class, and experience all of it's speccs... not play 1/3 of my class, and another 1/3 of a different class... that's what alts are for.

    You kill or you die. Or you die and you kill.
    Tell them only that the Lich King is dead and that World of Warcraft died with him.

    To me the only problem would be that it basically has no benefit, unless the two chosen specs can use the same gear. Otherwise the only purpose it would serve is to skip leveling one of them, which we are already about to have the option to do.

    Yes because a priest deathknight makes so much sense. It would have to be greatly restricted to make sense. Maybe a warlock-mage. Warrior-hunter etc but...

    That could work too... classes have to be "similar". Mage/Lock or Warrior/Paladin. I would absolutely roll an Assassin Rogue/Survival Hunter.

    God no. Blood DK/Disc Priest I do not like the idea.

    As someone already said, there was a game that started like Wow clone (graphically speaking) called Runes of Magic that has dual class. Now I think it even let you to have a third class.

    The thing is that you have to level two classes and switch between them to do it, so a lot of people go for high level quest with their main class, collect all the requirements and then switch.

    You could only use some of the spells/abilities of your secondary class while in your main class. You could create a mage/priest that was very powerful, but it was always better to mix classes that use different resource (mana/rage instead of mana/mana).

    It was a really good idea but RoM is a real P2W.

    This was one of the areas of my inspiration. It is not a new idea, just a new concept for Blizz to consider.

    i like how final fantasy XIV lets you play all classes on one toon.

    Your character dose not gain levels its class dose.
    When you swap class your get naked because u cant used the current gear or it auto swaps to some gear you have bound for that class

    ye this brakes lore but for non dk classes only limitation is race

    you can even use some spells from one class and use them as another.

    So a black mage gets an instant cast like natures swiftness and i can use it on my white mage

    Not sure how it is a "stupid" idea. Other games have done it, and it has been wildly successful. I think it would be awesome to have an option when you hit lvl 10. Take a second spec in your current class, or pick a 2nd class and get only 1 spec. I would make an Assassin Rogue/Survival Hunter in an instant
