A new trailer of the engine in action should be on the way soon once the marketing ninjas get done with it. The new starter experience that will be supported with the new engine will start players off in the same area regardless of if they have the expansion or not.

Currently some professions have very strong, unique roles, while others have to rely solely on DPS, and we're looking at the fundamentals of each profession's primary and secondary role.
