So you want to play a proper freeform character rather than a gimpy archetype, but don't want to subscribe? Well, Cryptic has just the thing for you: freeform character slots. People asked for them endlessly, and now they're here.
No, I'm not joking. I expect the people who wanted them to immediately start whining because they wanted them for $1 each or so. But as I've said many times, it's a subscription game with a generous free trial.
