Personally, I think the three tree (plus racial) limit is actually a very good thing. It opens up a lot of options for balancing the trees against each other that weren't there before, such as fleshing out each tree to be more independent, and being able to provide more kinds of options. It also further diversifies the kinds of choices players can make that would be meaningful.
Some types of variety only exist under some types of constraint.
That is your opinion, and you are entitled to it. My opinion differs and will not change on this issue. This three tree limit both stinks of wow and loses the flavor of DnD that I enjoy. I dont expect anyone to agree with me, or even care, but this part of the enhancement change is going to be my farewell to DDO.
But Truth is eternal, so it can never be old or new. It never ‘was’ or ‘will be.’ It just ‘is.’ It always ‘is.’
