Basically I'm gripping cause I was told I would be able to tailor make my class but I can't use shotgun, pistols, rifles, elemental or blood magic to tank with. It seems like there will be an obvious cookie cutter build that will be a combination of Hammer/Blades with Chaos magic that will be the "correct" answer to tanking and any other combination will be like playing a Retardadin in WoW classic. I also fear that this will extent to healing and DPS roles as well.
Oh yeah, one more thing, I've never played Rift, but does one soul equate to one ability? If so, then you actually have 14 souls that can be reused as often as you like, and the only limitations are that seven can only be used on active abilities, seven can only be used on passive, and NO OTHER LIMITATIONS!
And now I'm getting curious, could you please give some specific examples of what you were hoping to see that you aren't seeing?
