The benefit for me will be not having to retrait or re-armor a character if I want to use a completely different build.
this. it's one of the things that bugs me about the game tbh. i really don't know why they can't just have a backup spec thing like WoW has where you just click a button and all your weapons, armor, and traits are swapped.
no, i don't want to have to pay money every time i want to run a different build. i don't want to have to carry my second set of gear around in an invisible bag everywhere i go. i just want to be like "hey, i feel like playing (insert spec here today), i'm gonna do it." instead of going through a hassle. i mean, yeah, you should still have to buy all the gear and weapons for the alt spec, but once you've done all that, it should be a lot easier to switch.
i wouldn't even mind if you had to go to the trainer NPC to change your spec, as long as everything was saved.
that's the main reason i could see rolling an alt of the same profession.
