    I think it is 8, they said you'd have enough for every character on one server, was on the dev tracker, could've changed since nor, or could still change by launch.

    Id imagine there would be at least 8 so you could try one of each class

    It's 8. Rather expected given the number of classes and the group sizes (4, 8, 16).

    Q: Character limit per server?
    DE: Eight, there will also be a full character cap, but I'm not sure what it is.

    Yeah, it's 8 officially, but I'd rather it be 16 considering Advanced Classes. But 8 will do just fine as ACs don't bring any new story along. And there will be AC "respec".

    Only up to a certain level though, definitely not at 50.

    Oh, trust me. it will be at 50. Even if BW is saying now that it won't. It will be. That's how things roll in MMORPGs.

    I highly doubt it. Advanced classes are not like changing specs in WoW. It would be more like WoW saying you can respec from a Rogue to a Mage if you feel like it.

    Well that's not entirely so. Take Druid for instance. Druid can respec "from rogue to mage". SW:ToR classes are all HYBRIDS in WoW terms. There are no PURE classes in SW:ToR. So yeah, AC is like changing spec in WoW.

    They are hybrids, sort of. The Advanced Class themselves are the hybrid though. Lets look at the Bounty Hunter. Powertech lets you be a Tank or a DPS, you know kind of like a Death Knight. The Mercenary lets you be a DPS or a Healer, kind of like a Priest.

    No that's not it. It's like Druid. BH PT = Bear + Kitty, BH M = Boomkin + Tree. Every class in SW:ToR is a druid. Anyway it is possible to change AC in SW:ToR already. The point being argued is level 50 AC change.

    If you switch Advanced Classes you lose all the abilities of the other Advanced Class. In WoW you can learn all the abilities and even use some in other forms. So no, it isn't the same.

    Also they have said that AC change is gonna be restricted to a low level and cost alot.

    There's a shared skill tree by all ACs in that class with all the base-line Class Abilities. So no. It's different yes, but not that much.

    I know that. All I'm saying is this: eventually it will be available at level 50 with no limit on the number of changes per character.

    I think why we don't agree is that you are looking at classes in TOR and relating it to WoW, which is not what TOR is doing. They aren't making it so you can have a character that can respec and do whatever you want. You make a decision and you work within that. Also you are using Druid as your example, which of course, is the only class that can be healer, tank, mdps, and rdps.

    1. You throwed WoW classes in (Rogue to Mage). I just followed.
    2. Unrelated to WoW - you can change AC in SW:ToR.
    3. Original point - level 50 AC change.
    4. ???
    5. Back to topic.

    You will be able to respec within your advance class at launch and it has been stated that they will add dual spec sometime after launch.
