I don’t understand the urge for the class change points. It’s certainly not a thing meant to change all your classes every month so you have to farm 1k points every week on each character. Once is done and you are settle, you shouldn’t need it anymore (in theory), that’s why they gave us 2 weeks of 3k points every day, to settle our builds and test whatever we wanted.
Certainly you might want to change again when some balance come out and you eventually don’t like what devs did with a particular class. But when this happen, they are going to give free 1k class change points, as they did recently in a kTOS patch. This on top of the points you already have should be enough for these situations, considering that you play your characters and you will eventually get some points here and there, cause content that give us class change points are very trivial.
To be fair, the system might be hard for support characters if you compare with dps ones. If you don’t have a class to help you out with damage in your build, you might end up having a bad time farming those points. Otherwise, even a screwed up build that has dps classes weirdly selected can hunt down class change points quite simply.
Now, the last thing is that I can’t understand is why people who claim not having enough time to play as they would like to have insist in having 5+ characters. Maybe it’s just me, cause I am one of those that don’t play as much as I wanted, and for that I can’t have more characters than what I can handle with the time that I have. I have a friend who does that, with 10+ characters and no time, and I am always mocking him, but even him managed to organize his builds. IMC abandoned the Tree of Alts concept long time ago.
No personal feelings towards people with a lot of characters, I personally like the level up process more than do endgame content, but I can’t mindless have more characters than I can handle, otherwise I will not fully develop them. And the reset process, at least for me, is kind of a pain… redo skills, classes and attributes is tedious.
