I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to seeing the playtest iteration of the mechanic.

Greater Elemental (Lvl 23)
The people who wanted every character to possibly be able to access anything usually moved on from D&D to other game systems that were built for this... GURPS, Hero/Champions, and the like. The one attempt to do it in D&D (2E's Player's Option: Skills & Powers) died on the vine.

I guess it boils down to how much you like rolling dice.
"Woot, I get to roll more dice!" says the player.
"Crap, I have to roll how many dice now?" says the DM.

I've got one request. Please quit calling it "master of weapon combat" and make the fighter "master of COMBAT". Conan didn't become a 98 pound weakling when you took his sword away. He was death on two legs with or without weapons. The D&D fighter should be too.
The combat art is a holistic enterprise. One doesn't learn one weapon without learning something about all the others, and hand to hand includes the use of, you know, hands.

Guide (Lvl 11)
I can see how choosing where to spend the dice each round is going to bog down play (although not more than choosing what power to use), but for me (and my players, bar one), throwing a d6 at the problem is probably always going be quicker than having to think about the probabilities of modifiers.
(With a shout out to @Kamikaze Midget's point about psychology above.)
