Question on Souls Follow

So a friend of mine and I were discussing the game, and we are trying to figure out something. Example: If I chose warrior, by lvl 50, would i be able to play all 8 souls within the calling? Like Can i be a pally/beastie/champion on one saved spec, and load up another spec that is reaver/warlord/paragon? Or are you stuck with just the first 3 souls get, and can save 4 variations of that one only, and if you want to try others in that calling you have to reset and lose your saves from the previous spec? I know this might be a noob question, but he seems to think you are basically stuck with the 3 you choose first, and if you want to try others in teh calling, you have to pay to have everything completely reset.

Yes, let me put it this way, I rolled a rogue as my calling, then my first three souls were Marks/Ranger/nightblade which from what I saw a million of, so I bought a role from my rogue trainer for 30 gold and from the soul quests I did put Nightblade/Assassin/Riftstalker. So now I can either play as ranged or melee just by a 2 second push of a button. I hope that makes sense, you will always have your main calling either Rogue, warrior etc but once you have done the soul quests you can either by or I believe quest for roles.

You can do that. It is possible to eventually play any combination of 3 of the 8 souls for your calling.

To be more specific, you start out with 1 soul and then quickly earn 2 from starter quest (you should have 3 souls by level 6). You can get access to the other souls for your calling, but you must complete a quest for each of them to unlock them. Once you do so you are free to assign them into one of your 4 roles (3 of which must be purchased) that you may switch between whenever out of combat.

The second role is fairly cheap, about 30 gold if I recall correctly. The third role cost about the same as a mount, around 2 platinum and 30 gold I believe. I'm unsure how expensive the fourth is, but I assume it will be at least 50 platinum.

By the time I was 20, without doing auction house sales or special farming, I was able to purchase a mount, a second role, and have all my abilities ranked up.

I actually bought my second role on accident before leaving the very first area of Silverwood (I was level 9) because I thought it was another Soul lol.

I agree my toon is 27 and after buying a mount a new role, ability ranks and getting my LWing up to like 125 I have like 10 plat. So far in the game making money is not an issue, but bag space is well fustrating lol

Now from the videos Ive seen and what Ive read, when the actual game launches you will have to be lvl 15 to get second soul slot and 30 to get the 3rd. Is this still the case? Getting them all at lvl 6 now is just for beta? correct?

I know I started my first soul quest at 13 I think, I bought my second Role somehwre shortly thereafter, I could have been 15 but as another poster said he bought his by accident at 9 so I am not sure if it a beta thing or not

It's possible to actually change your soul trees without having to purchase a new roll. For example...

New to the game I wanted a warrior to be a dps and be able to switch to tank. I chose Champion as my first soul, Paladin as my second, and Voidknight as my 3rd. After trying to tank a dungeon with some friends, I quickly realized I made a mistake and needed to either go straight dps or straight tank for best performance. I purchased a second roll at lvl 16 and chose that as my tanking roll.

Because of my initial mistake choosing my first 3 soul trees, my dps was suffering and I thought I'd have to delete my char to be able to pick a proper build for dps or purchase a 3rd roll. I stumbled apon a quest in Sanctuary that taught me the Paragon soul as a quest reward. I did the quest and learned the Paragon soul. I decided to reset all my skill points to put strictly into the Champion soul tree to at least help my dps as much as I could. But I soon learned that because I had removed all the points in that tree, I could switch that tree to the Paragon soul tree since I had learned that soul from the quest. There are quests to learn all the souls for each class. Once I figured out which new soul trees I wanted, I simply did the quests and changed the trees I had not put any points into.

Beta 6:
modifying souls is probably the most awesome part of the game imo.

I made a rogue then got all 8 souls at lvl 13, at that point i wanted to play with variations of the souls and made the following:

ranger/bard/riftstalker---> super support w/heals + decent mdps and rdps w/a pet = uber fun

ranger/marksman/sabatour---> ranged creation w/massive spike rdps and great cc and debuffs = uber fun

riftstalker/assassin/bladedancer----> all mdps w/great defensive abilities (shields avoidance etc.) + stealth and spike or sustained mdps = uber fun

all in all great customization w/endless possibilities (ur creativity is ur limit)

Whenever a tree has no points in it you can do whatever you want with it. If you have a build that only relies on two souls you can just not put any points into your third soul and change it on the fly whenever you want. Not sure why you thought you'd have to delete your character. If you want to stay the same calling no game has ever made you delete a character to change your spec.

Does Diablo 2 count as an MMO though?
Most single player games do take the exact opposite approach as MMO's and you have to start over if you ever want to try a different build.
I overstepped when I said game. I meant MMO really. Like WoW and EQ and Runescape :P
