    Default Divide talents or specialize question

    Was wondering, do all abilities at low level scale throughout career or do they become useless at higher level. If they scale normally I was thinking of dividing my points for souls 2/3....something like..

    I played champ / reaver / paladin builds and every single ability kept scaling. You just buy new tomes each time.

    They DO scale, but sometimes your supporting souls offer abilities that you use instead (or vice versa) just because they're better. Most people won't use all the abilities they have access to. I don't pay much mind to the rogue calling, but i'm sure it happens this way quite alot with combo point generators and finishers.

    And it does happen for some buffs, like all the cleric buffs that increase your attack power/crit/hit by your spell power/spell crit/focus, PLUS another function..it may not be the buff from your primary soul that you prefer!

    One last example is the Archon. If you take Elementalist as a secondary soul, you're probably gonna use the elementalist zero point nuke Crystaline Missiles over the archon zero pointer Pillaging Stone (you will use PS, but only as a debuffer).

    i agree. right now (as of beta4) my solo spec was rang/mark/blade. i used almost all mark abilities with one or two ranger abilities, not counting the pet stuff. the ranger stuff was just woefully underpowered compared to mark because it was my secondary and didnt have as many points in the tree.

    i intend to change my spec in beta5 but i dont see my abilities really changing up too much as marks will still be the main spec

    You buy rank ups for all of your skills throughout the game, so yah pretty much they scale.

    Also for that build it seems pretty solid for PvP.

    Just to be perfectly clear, Dual strike adds 7-9 damage, but this bonus scales? It's just that I'd expect the builders and other pages to include such information...

    If I remember right there was a big discussion that the 0 point pets (from all callings) stop getting ranks/scaling around level 26-30 (don't remember).

    If this is true than they will be usless at 50.

    got my opinion on the subject ,but not going to start that again.
