If a D1 vet wants to use Bladedancer, Sunsinger, or Defender in D2 they shouldn't be barred from doing so. If a D2 player wants to use them, fine. We should be given full access to what we rightfully had in D1 as a part of our character. Having to start fron scratch was tolerable for weaoons, but losing an entire third of our D1 character's ppwer is inexcusable.
You can. Go back to d1 and you will still have them.
