So I played for a few hours last night and I already want to change my main soul! I usually enjoy tanking/paladin roles, which is what I chose but after I found out Paragons can wield 2 swords at once I immediately wanted to switch lol. I read you can swap your secondary souls at level 13 but can you change your main soul??? It will suck to have to remake my character since I like him so much but I would rather start over now than regret my path 100 hrs into the game.

What should I do? My main soul is Paladin, 2nd soul Void Knight...want to switch to main Paragon, 2nd soul Champion...should I start over or keep going until I get to level 13? And if I should wait until level 13 will it be an easy switch? Will I lose anything in the process?

Yeah you can change it all at 13. It's easy, and you dont lose anything.

Excellent, thanks for the reply. I keep reading that tanks are not as useful in this game (or at least not needed very often) so I definitely want to make the switch now & build for more of an offensive/solo character. Plus I thought it would be cool to possibly throw in Beastmaster as my 3rd soul and I didn't want to do that if I was going to be a pure tank.

Who told you that? You need a tank for rifts, you need a tank for invasions, and you REALLY need a tank for invasion bosses. And of course you also need a tank for all the dungeons.

If you're making a warrior you should certainly keep one role for tanking and keep a set of gear for it.

I read it in a few random forums on here & the main Rift site...from what I could understand they were saying that based on the fact that you spend a lot of your time soloing, don't think they were implying they were completely useless by any means. At any rate though, I still want to make the switch to Paragon/Champion...

I've leveled 1-50 as a tank... ya mobs die a bit slower, but I could also kill 5 mobs at once w/o worrying about dying. I find more perks in staying tank spec vs dps...
