The latest BioWare
In this edition, the team addresses the role played by Advanced Classes in the game and suggests that said classes will not be locked into specific duties (such as tanking.) “Each of the advanced classes is a full, flexible class with various trees that allow specialization,” the reply states. “So although the Juggernaut is perhaps best suited to play a ‘tanking’ role, a player could specialize in other roles depending on what skills they choose.”
The post also confirms that group quests can be undertaken by any combination of classes. “You can make a group of any mix of classes, including four of the same,” the reply reads. “There are several play groups here that enjoy doing just that.” This should mean there’ll be no sitting around and waiting for a specific player-type to show up before the quest can start.
