Hi, I was quite happy before these new and better feature template did enter the game.
I have 9 chars that I'm activity playing in PVE, PVP and WvW. I'm using builds that use the same weapons in all three modes. The build are optimize for WvW and (thanks to PVP using not the runes that are in your gear but the one that you declare in PVP) also PVP. It is okay only for PVE, but as long as I'm not playing raid or fractals I did have a blast in all modes.
However since this new feature there is no automagically switching of the skills+traits when change the modes. It is very burdensome to change skill and gear templates when entering a mode. I very often find myself laying on the floor, because I forgot to change it. This is very discouraging in PVP, since this means that I will spend the next 10 minutes just being a burden for my teammates. And other claimed as well that it is happing to them, too.
So, what can I do to have the comfort of automatically changing my skills and traits when changing the modus without any additional mouse clicks, like I did have for the past 7 years?
