# 1 ability to change profession's

i think that they should add a token that you can buy on the c store that allows you to change profession but keep rank that's my opinion but whats all yours opinion on this?

Won't work... Different professions have completely different ground combat skill sets, which would be lost in a career change...

What you're really asking for is a TOTAL CHARACTER RESPEC, to avoid having a grind a alt in a new career.... And this probably won't happen, as Cryptic wants to keep you occupied with something to do... And after all, thats what additional character slots are for...

Why won't it work? Have it not only reset your career, but reset your skill tree and keep the skill points your have earned.

Don't really like the idea myself. That's why you have different characters, so you can explore different professions.

You can already, for example, pilot a cruiser as a tactical captain, but to get the most out of it you need to be an engineer. If you can just flip a switch and become an engineer, it cheapens the game, imho.

In a very roundabout way they KIND OF have a token on the C-Store that allows you to change professions. It's mis-labelled as an "add 2 character slots" token.

Personally I never recommend deleting a toon in favor of starting a new one. Save all your hard work!

lol what i said was a token to "BUY" on the c store so it would cost real money to get the points to do it

there are only 3 professions in the game, if you can't find the time to level 3 chars then perhaps you don't have time for video games at all. Leveling in STO is easy and fast, I don't see a need for this at all.

I wouldn't hold out for this to ever come out. Better to roll a new toon. Do it now before F2P makes it hurt.

They actually have these for Champions Online, they allow you to completely change your arcehtype (the CO equivalent of a career path) with a retrain token. You get to completely redo your character from scratch, including all super powers and abilities. So, I wouldn't completely discount Cryptic doing this for STO.
