Focus and Ignore

Postby Droll » Mon Aug 18, 2014 12:05 pm

Focus means I won't lose points from that skill, and ignore means it will take points from ignored skills to put in your other skills? Do I have that right?

Yes.

No. Ignored skills neither rise nor fall.

In essence, ignored skills are permanently static, focused skills will never drop, and the rest may either rise(as long as there are other unfocused, unignored skills to take from), or drop(either from focused or unfocused/unlisted skills rising).

And just in case there was any doubt, skills will never drop unless you're at your total skill cap, which is probably not something anyone is going to reach without already knowing that they're about to, and what to do with their skills post-cap. Even the lowest possible cap (assuming it's unchanged from ARPI) is higher than most will ever reach.

You have reached your full skill potential.


I was asking about the focus/ignore because that had popped up and me and the staffer I was asking weren't a hundred percent on how ignore worked. Granted, I'm assuming I have craptastic intelligence, so my points are just low. Also Long-Blade/Dual-Wield gives me a lot of points in skills I have no intention of using.

Kory had the right of it.

If you leave them alone, and focus whatever other skill you want, say bludgeon, it should leech points off of long-blade and/or d-wield to up bludgeon.

Yeah, that's what I'm doing. Trying to get it to suck points out of the skills I'm not using. Just making sure I understood the ignore command first. Appreciate it.
