    Will we get more character slots? You know, for those of us already attached to 18 characters?

    Yes! We are getting two new slots taking the total to 20!

    Are there any thoughts on class changes?
    We need a way of changing class, even if only once per toon!
    After years of having a main, I've done every quest in the game, i've all my skill lines leveled, i've so much grind put in. I want to play with the new class (it looks AMAZING) but I won't actively be able to without class changing :/

    I want to keep playing the story with my character who i'm attached too...but that'll lock me out of enjoying a new feature.

    ZOS, you can do this in a way where you still control the grind-skip Crown Store items.
    Make the tokens limited so people can't change at will. Sell them only when a new class or massive balance change drops. Do it only once, I don't know, but please, we need this! Please think about it at least!

    That is a nothing issue, just change to a different toon.
    Yeah sure if you only wanted to do the PVE story once but wanted to play as X class and your main is Y class, it is a bit annoying but the PVE is so easy it doesn't even matter what class you play as as everything dies by spamming one skill.

    With the universal achievements tied to every account now, it is so easy to just switch a different toon and still make overall progress in grindy content.

    Why not 21? Three of each class, one for each role, it's so obvious.

    I agree, it also makes one of each per alliance.

    Also true! I currently have 6 in each alliance, it would be nice to not break that streak either!

    @ZOS_Kevin the article link doesn't seem to work at the moment, getting a 502 Bad Gateway on PC and a "THIS PAGE IS NOT THE ONE YOU SEEK" on mobile.

    Why was the Class centered completely around Hermaeus Mora? At first I was excited, cause I'm a Mage lover at heart, but when I saw the whole Class identity was eyeballs and tentacles the excitement drained real quick. I'm having the same experience I had with the Necromancer. If instead the reveal was an Unarmed Magicka weapon skill tree I would be through multiple roofs right now. But, now I'm left knowing there will be a second Class I won't ever touch.

    This is exactly how I feel. I can't play the necromancer either because of the visuals, and I'm not sure if I could play this either unless I can piecemeal skills together that don't look too ridiculous (to me).

    I'll have to reinstall PTS and see how it feels/looks when the time comes. Can't really say much else yet.

    Could not agree more. 1000%
    That stuff squicks me out and I won't be going anywhere near it. Hard nope.

    That's odd. I just tried it and it worked. What browser are you using?

    It isn't a nothing issue. It's hundreds of hours of being connected to a character thrown away just to be able to do content we paid for lol. I get not everyone does the "roleplaying" part of the massively multiplayer roleplaying game, but it's still a valuable aspect of it.

    Roleplaying is cool, but quite simply what are you missing out on by just changing characters?
    You can swap the gear from your main to alt via the back, back and forth, or create and earn gear for the alt instead.
    The alt can get every skill the main can get except the 3 unique class skill lines.
    The alt can do every quest the main can do.
    And now with universal achievements, minus a few unique achievements, the alts progress (in most achievements) is shared with the main.

    There is little in the way of restriction other than the one you are making for yourself.

    I am not against class change, and even myself I pretty much always play with my main, but if I really wanted to change to a different character, there is nothing stopping me.

    Look, I'm as excited for this class as anyone, it looks AWESOME!
    But calling it a "feature" was pretty misleading. A feature is something that existing characters can participate in. This isn't.

    Also, any chance you can finally give us class change tokens?!
    I desperately want my main to be an Arcanist (from what we've seen, it's everything I always wanted out of Sorcerer but didn't get), but the thought of having to start over makes me want to give up.

    I don't think the new class is the feature. Near the end, they mentioned a new infinite dungeon system to be released in an update after the Necrom chapter.
