I'm pretty far in Act II and than i noticed... i think i played with useless skills for a long time.
You see my char has a shield and a slashing sword.
However i put my skillpts in one handed with slashing weapon. Not shield with slashing damage.
Does this mean i never got any of the bonusses to my attack from the skills?

Don't forget that if you are unhappy with a skill you can unlearn it. This will cost you gold, but you'll have the skillpoints back, which you can use to learn a new skill. (See page thirty seven of the manual.)

Thanks for the quick reply!

Yeah i know. So basically points in one handed are wasted when using a shield. I have to use shield/slashing if i use a shield + a slashing longsword?

Sounds logical, but I'd have to double check. I'll play some Beyond Divinity this weekend and have a look. Can't really do it now as I'm working on In between checking the forum that is. ;\)

Thanks.
Lol hadn't yet noticed you were a developer.

Great going gamewise btw! At least you guys are putting us on the map for something besides beer and chocolate!

'One Handed' and 'One Handed With Shield' skills are separate, so you do not get a one handed slashing skill bonus if you have a shield equipped.

With regard to Belgian chocolate: for some weird reason Americans are developing the idea that it is France which produces the best European chocolate, not Belgium. Sad but true.
