My love with being a jack of all trades is that I can step in to fill almost any gap in a group. I guess you could say that I tie that in to freedom within the game constructs. Being able to handle a little of everything, even while not excelling at it, is quite an empowering feeling.
Heck, even my Lore-master's pet in LOTRO could tank, with the right buffs.
Of course I've enjoyed playing alts who specialize in one thing or another. But here's a simple rule I like to game by:
Ability > Power
After all, what good would it do to be the master of phaser weapons if you're on a ground mission where you need to bypass security on a phaser-proof door lock or keep an NPC alive while an army of mobs is running at him or her?
