That's exactly what they're moving away from. Class specialties that defined the classed through either bug, development oversight, or lack of attention to the class. This is the result of lacking manpower to keep all classes balanced because the moment you change that class specialty something it destories or OPs a class. And this is why they're normalizing classes. Less specalities means less manpower needed to keep all the classes balanced. You are posting exactly the problem, they are trying to fix, in some crazy rapid messy fashion. And FYI, they did take away valk/war lingering SA for a week. The outcry was so bad, they had to claim it was a bug and put it back. That's a prim example of what they're changing.
