As the third beta does not go over level 20, do we know how they are going to allow us to get more points without going over it? Are character going to get 2 points every level or something?
Do we know if they are going to have an open beta or maybe just a 4th beta that does allow us to go past level 20?
One of the devs slipped up in one of the podcasts and said there would be 7 beta events. Nobody knows how true or false that is yet. Personally I expect that there will be more than just 3 Betas since I would assume they will want to run a longer (at least 1 or 2 week) beta before release so they can test longer term stability of the servers.
The devs have stated that they are going to allow full choice of all souls at start (instead of just 3). They have also said they are going to be accelerating soul point acquisition so you have more soul points sooner, but I haven't heard any details of exactly how fast it's going to be. It could be something as simple as you get 5 points at level 1 and then 1 point per level or 2 points per level, we'll find out tomorrow. I think I read somewhere that you are also going to get your second soul before you even get into combat for the first time (but I can't remember where I read that, so I might be misremembering).
