My reason for a change is a relatively simple one.
I Play one character on one account. I enjoy playing that way and currently have no desire to play another. I also enjoy my build, but sometimes, especially in higher level content that build may not be ideal.
Now sure, you could say I've made my bed, so sleep in it, but nothing is worse than missing out on content because my particular character just won't cut the mustard there. Sometimes I'd rather not go just for fear of being lacklustre and letting the group down. (maybe I'm a rubbish player who knows). An easier way to respec and having other builds available quicker would, or rather could remedy this.
I think rather than changing the whole system, adding a dual spec could help with this. Now maybe I'm in the minority playing so few characters, but what with the addition of MM's it does seem as if they are trying to steer away from a player having every sort of character available for everything. Also, I much prefer playing one character if for no other reason than to retain some semblance of an RPG.
Maybe this concept of a dual spec, or even a way to respec on the fly goes against the ideas that have been set in place by Ankama, but I do feel something should change.
Currently respeccing can feel stressful, "Did I get it right?", "Maybe I'll just log out in the respec room, come back to it in the morning,". It would be nice if going for a respec could be a wholly joyful experience, one that wasn't tarnished by the fact that I either have to collect a rather large amount of animal innards for a once month change, or pay money on top of my subscription if I want to try something new.
It would be nice to explore my class with a bit more freedom.
