Thanks for the reply and helping me understand a little bit more.
I also have another question. I've been messing around with the soul tree calculator trying to see what kind of build I'm going to want and I got a little confused.
I spent 47 points into the Assassin tree and it send required level was 47, makes sense if you get 1 point per level. But then I did another test between Assassin and Nightblade and spent 56 between the 2 tree's and it said required level 42.
How can I spend more points between 2 tree's at a lower level than less points at a higher level in 1 tree? Unless you gain extra points for choosing a new tree?
Once again, thanks for any feedback.
The maximum points that you can spend in a tree is equal to your level. (Somewhere in there it allows you to spend an extra point so that you can hit the 51 point abilities in the root of a given soul tree, but I can't tell from the soul calculator here when that actually is. So for the sake of simplicity, it's easier to just say the max points spent in one soul is the same as your level). Roughly every three levels, you're given an additional point that you can spend in other trees, so if you're level 21 (give or take) you can have 21 points in one tree and an additional 7 points in other trees. That's not to say that you have
to spend 21 points in one tree and 7 in another, just that the maximum you can have in any one tree is equal to your level. You could spend 10 points in one tree, 10 points in another, and 8 in the third if you wanted to. You can mix and match as you see fit as long as you don't go over your level's maximum for any one tree.
At level 50, you have a total of 66 points to distribute which opens up a lot of different build possibilities.
