Recently Anne Stickney forwarded me this tweet and suggested it for a Community Blog Topic:
@the4tracker Would love to see more discussion on this topic from players. Alts are cool, but alts just to get around the prof limit bug me. - Greg Street (@Ghostcrawler) October 1, 2013
I am not sure how it would work story-wise. How could my alchemist suddenly be able to make an advanced glyph just by accessing a community workbench? This would have to be one of those ways that gameplay trumps lore. Also, this wouldn't get rid of the problem (as Ghostcrawler sees it) of using alts to get around the profession limit.
Perhaps the solution is to allow all characters to be able to learn all professions, which is something they are thinking about. Then making them account-wide would make even more sense -- though still not from a story standpoint.
Do you think professions should be account-wide? Do you think they should lift the two primary profession limit on characters? Or are you happy just the way things are?
