I have no need to re-species, re-career, or re-gender my characters, but I have an absolute need to re-trait them, and soon. I would immediately dump whatever money needed for the Zen to do this on at least 3 of my characters the day it launched, guaranteed. I *MIGHT* look to re-career one or two toons, but it would take some bellyaching on my part as I'm not yet sure who I would want to swap to what.
Speaking of do-overs, anyone look into if the new Reputation systems have a method of being re-selected or even reset???
Devs have stated that the Rep systems are "for keeps" and there's no way of resetting/reslecting your power upgrades at this time. Nor are there any plans of doing so.
I can see a very cynical reason for why DStahl would want the retrait to be bundled with the other features: more money. If they bundle them together than charge you $10-15 per token and use the excuse of being able to do ALL that stuff as justification for the price...and people would grumble, *****, moan, and whine but they'd still pay. Of course they wouldn't read the fine print either and only realize they need to buy a retrain token as well because the pinny pinchers decided against adding a free one...or they do add a retrain token to the "bundle" and remove the ability to buy an individual retrain from the C-Store.
