From what little that I understand, it seems that taking a class with more skill points than your current one (eg. fighter splashing into rogue at lvl 8) allows you to "maximise" skill points.
How does this work? When should one take a splash to "maximise" as such?
Another related question is how many points can you put into a single skill at any level? Is it based on how your current skill rank versus your level, or how many skill points available, or what
