You know, DKS is quite a spectular game and I'm VERY pleasantly surprised by how entertaining it is. Having said that, there is something that has been bugging me for a while: I was wondering if it's possible to raise the skill caps for Life Leech and Dual-Wielding Expertise (or any other weapon expertise) up to 15? It seems like it should be, but none of the trainers are willing to raise it that far for me.
I have the steam version of Dragon Knight Saga - don't know if that one has the 2.0 patch pre-applied or not - and just recently finished the Ego Draconis part. My Battle Tower trainer, Hermosa, was capable of raising almost every skill cap I wanted up to 15, but she could only raise Dual-Wielding and Life Leech, along with a few other mage and ranger skills up to level 13. No biggie so far, I figured this was done on purpose so as to differentiate Kenneth and Hermosa: she would be able to raise most of the physical active skills all the way to 15 and a few passives only up to 13, while Kenneth would be the other way around or something of the sort.
However, I have now begun the expansion and noticed that there are two trainers in the ministry to, supposedly, fill in that gap and allow you to raise everything up to 15 that your chosen BT trainer couldn't in the first part of the game. But Life Leech and Dual Wield Expertise (or any other) don't show up on either of their lists or Hermosa's, so I'm stuck with those two skills (which are pretty vital to my build) at level 13.
My theory is that you can only upgrade the caps twice (either 10 and 15 or 7/8 and 13, depending on the trainer's limit) and, since I had raised the caps on those skills in the Ego Draconis part twice (and reached 13, hermosa's limit), now I can't get the upgrade from the trainers in the ministry to 15, because I've already upgraded twice. Is that it? And, if so, is that intentional or a bug? I'll probably do just fine with a 13 points cap, but I'd really like to raise it to 15 for completion's sake, especially since they're kind of the focus of my melee build.
