Interesting changes!

Has there been any word on the Aspect sharing? My initial thought is to agree with the above posters that Aspect sharing should not happen. With how cheap skill scrolls and skill orbs are I think that would really kill any reason to echo. I think leaving it as is will result with people continuing to echo, but maybe not go as deep. Someone might have 1 dexer character with dexer aspects, another character with mage aspects, and maybe even a 3rd character for tamer/bard aspects.

Absolutely love the changes, talk about a reason to PvP again, those new PvP rewards are amazing looking animations - thought I'd be buying them with Prev, instead get to work towards them which is tons better!!
