Just wondering because I used to always start my cross class skills at 1.5 at first level because the highest you could go was 11.5 but the .5 was essentially worthless if you started at an even 2 at creation.

(Assuming the devs haven't changed it since they last commented on it: )

All skills you already have ranks in will gain +1 to their rank per Epic Level gained.
Ie:

Search 14 -> +1, +1, +1, +1, +1 -> 19
Spot 12 -> +1, +1, +1, +1, +1 -> 17
Balance 9 -> +1, +1, +1, +1, +1 -> 14
Disable Device 6 -> +1, +1, +1, +1, +1 -> 11
Perform 0 -> 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 -> 0

Thus, hybrid toons and cross-classers should actually get a significant benefit from the system.

Just a small correction, rather then every skill you rank in, it should be every class skill. I got 5 point in swim on my lvl 25 bard despite never putting ranks in there.

My understanding is that it is a flat +1 to all skills, regardless of class or cross-class.

it used to be, but that got changed (probably due to giving access to umd to all)

That's what I heard...


I wish they stayed with the first plan... I leveled mine in beta to 25 and we got 4 points +1 per Int mod a level, and because was generic levels every skill was open... so I tossed them on UMD on every character... my fighter ended up with a 40 umd before items.

Might be, might be class based.

I do know the devs were specific in noting it wouldn't affect skills that required a rank to use (Disable, UMD, Perform) without a point in them.
