Is there still a ruling that says choosing the profession that goes with the character is the only way you get the special skill or has that rule been scrapped? I liked the idea that if you do not have an affinity with a certain profession you can't get the most out of it.

That was scrapped. Originally it would give you a free class skill for the recommended class, now anyone can be anything without penalty.

Thanks. I think I will be using it if it comes to someone wanting a dwarven ballet dancer.

The original idea sounds more interesting.

The original idea was far more restrictive though. There was no reason to pick a hero and class combo that wasn't recommended, all you were doing was making the game harder and restricting yourself.

I suppose that was fine if you wanted a bit more challenge, but it didn't really feel like the game was supporting an open ended choice where you could pair any class/hero combo you wanted.
