But lets hope that they don't fudge up the Multiclassing rules in D&D:Next like they did with 3E.
I'm actually going to have to disagree with you there the 3e multiclassing system was great it was the people who walked around with charters that had a level structure of 6/2/1/1/1/1/1/1/1/1/1/1/1/1 that ruined it...honestly a simple limit of 3 or 4 classes would make all the difference
As for 4e when I said it was limited I meant that you couldn't really change your characters direction except at Creation, Paragon and Epic whislt in 3e If my Lvl 3 Fighter decided to become a battlemage because of some reason or another I just could. I wasn't a bad system I just liked the 3e one better, mind you overall I preffered 4e and 5e seems to be on the path of melding everything great of both editions together else well as some older stuff...now they just have to pull it off
As for the negative view of 4e, thats mostly just ignorance...admitedly I loathed 4e until I tried it and now I'm loving it.
