you don't have to create toon after toon after toon, you just spend the new points you get differently
like that's why this review is so bad, it doesn't make it clear at all that this game doesn't block off other choices when you spend points on some skills. if you hate your build, you just learn more skills. no rerolling, no nothing. you just go grab a new weapon and have at it. or keep using your old one and get a bunch of points faster. whatever works best!
I have a busy irl life too, and the thing I like about tsw is it doesn't fart around and make you do bullshit to get to the meat of things. If someone doesn't like their build it's not a matter of pooping in socks to redo everything, it's a matter of, at worst, swapping out a weapon or two and repeating some quests. No point spending decision locks you out of other choices, so the whining about respecs makes no goddamned sense.
The one you're talking about was fixed in a patch
Seriously, if you don't like your build you just try other combinations, or start unlocking other skills. You just don't need to respec, and allowing it at all would break things too badly. If you want to do multiple things, you just keep playing until you have enough skills unlocked to do so!
It's not restrictive at all. I really don't get the complaints.
This is a disappointingly bad review for a site supposedly centered around MMOs. Way too much focus on minor nitpicking details that were of personal distaste to the reviewer (and honestly some of your taste is very bad, author--if you can't see the appeal of a game that doesn't let you graveyard zerg bosses and forces you to actually be good at the game I don't even know what to tell you) and not enough on the many things this game does right.
This game isn't other MMOs, and it's good at what it does. It's a wonderful game in its own right, and not in spite of that fact. It's not meant to be for everyone, but at least do it some service by talking about who it might appeal to, instead of handwringing over that you're not in the target audience labelled "pedantic nerd that gets really upset when an MMO isn't exactly like every other MMO."
