If you are willing to settle with every soul having magic then I think literally any other MMO would be perfect for you.
I never casted a spell in a game and thought, "My character is truly special". But in this game, and in this world if you are someone lucky enough to cast a spell you will likely think, "My character is truly special" and you would be right.
The closest I ever been to that feeling was in EverQuest when I got my Epic item. .
Hopefully you give this game a second glance because it will be truly special.
I am well aware other MMOs have casters, playing one is a preference and I feel that they are making the game even more niche that is by not giving people a mage/priest type class and then also by giving magic to random people who may not even want it. I won't play the game if they don't change the magic system to be more desirable or somehow make up that loss, but I am allowed to voice my opinions and follow the game to see how it goes.
( If someone can buy something as rare as being a king then I should be able to buy something as rare as being a mage. I'd drop 10k on being able to be a caster in the game, but I refuse to play a class or play-style that I do not enjoy. )
First off COE has never claimed to be for the masses. SBS is unabashed in stating COE likely will be a niche because of all the changes to MMO form they are introducing.
So it is very possible coe isn't for you. There is no shame in that.
Second there are no classes. You have skills. If you want to be a baker who also can crack a safe you can be.
You want to be a farmer who can design and fly a glider you can (eventually when technology catches up)
Caster classes are simply ranged dps with colors. Healers will likely still be in COE just won't be twinkle and sparkle healers. Healing will likely be like medicine or some such.
