The amount of soul combinations presents quite a challenge in terms of balance. Some will most likely be useless (they've stated as much, I believe) will others will end up being OP (probably in PvP). But giving the customer options is never a bad thing. And it will take a while before people start min/maxing builds to determine optimal dps setups, etc.
Bahh the **** with balance. I want the classes to be fun, I wanna explore, quest, clear rifts, dungeons and raids. I wanna craft awesome op sh*t! I wanna be bad ***! Just want to have a good time I don't give a sh*t if one caster has a higher damage magic missile or if one tank can multiple-mob tank better.
PS: And remember people that this is not WoW, with predifined classes, THIS IS... TELARA!!! >_< Edited, Nov 23rd 2010 8:20pm by ravetgn
