Consequence for gifted Chars?
Will the lowest secondary of all skills be the cap? Really?

Skills already raised above this cap are unaffected by this fix. And I only guess that if you managed raise two secondary skills to 200 your cap is no 200?

Explain please. It's hard to imagine the mechanic has been changed only to affect tagged skills, since there has been alot of confusion about Gifted Builds a litle more detailed answer might be apropriate.

WOW!

Yeah gifted is so op..... Time to remake my level 35 character because this wasn't explained properly.. I guess.................................................................


Or you could just make a less ridiculous trait then gifted, and kick it out, I don't see any other traits so heavily weighted that also completely change up core mechanics of the game..

So why just put one OP one in?

So we just end up all skilled and gifted? Mmmm, how varied and unique we will all feel :P

Nothing restraints you from going fast shot or bruiser or pretty much anything else with less consequences.

You mean except for the fact that gifted wasn't explained properly and is actually SO POWERFUL that it would be kind of dumb not to take it?

There is something I'm missing here, what are you talking about? Gifted gives you +1 to ALL and takes shit ton of SP from you, that's all, it doesn't give you anything else! Maybe you've misunderstood the log I've posted?
Secondary soft-cap is the same for gifter characters, it's just not the least of tagged skills, but the 2nd highest of secondary skills.

Perhaps I have but the part that troubled me is when cirn0 said "your highest secondary" is your cap when for everyone without gifted it is their second highest secondary skill which makes the cap.

Am I misreading something or do gifted folks get higher secondary caps by default?

For gifted the cap on secondary skills is the the skillvalue of the 2nd highest secondary skill at lvl24.
For chars with tagged skills it is the lowest tagged secondary determinating the cap.

And beside that: traits are traits just as Myakot said.

What should be better explained tho or displayed on a more prominent place to read about is the whole skill-cap mechanic in general.

It's okay, if I have just misread then it is no issue, how I understood it was how you just explained it; for both gifted and non gifted players your caps will be your highest primary and second highest secondary.

If that is how it is then I'm happy, it was just how cirn0 said it in that log made it seem as though gifted people only have to raise one secondary to get their cap up.

[14:56] <Cirn0> can only them to  highest secondary skill
[14:56] <Perteks> highest secondary?
[14:57] <Perteks> not lowest?
[14:58] <Cirn0> highest
[14:58] <Cirn0> for Gifted
[14:58] <Perteks> then if he have 200 then he can raise 200 all ?
[14:58] <Cirn0> yes
[14:58] <Cirn0> seems gifted is OP
[14:58] <Cirn0> for support characters
[14:58] <Cirn0> that have no weapon skill

So?

No, you've misunderstood it ;).
To clarify Secondary soft-caps. Everybodie's favourite..... EXAMPLES!

Normal character:
Spoiler for Hiden:
Throwing - 70
Traps - 80
First Aid - 150 (tag)
Doctor - 200 (tag)
Sneak - 151
Leadership - 40
Let's say he somehow reached soft-cap with those % in secondary skills, now. So, it SHOULD work like that: after going soft-cap + levels he will be able to lvl-up every other skill up to 150 only, not to 151! As sneak is not his tagged skill, even though it's the highest second.

Gifted character:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Throwing - 70
Traps - 80
First Aid - 150
Doctor - 200
Sneak - 151
Leadership - 40
(You won't get that many SP as a gifted character w\o dumping battle stats ;D) So let's have a look at this, gifted character with those secondary skills will be able to lvl each of his secondary skills up to 151%! Coz it's the 2nd highest, not tagged, but highest.

That's the only difference. I believe, at least, hope I'm not wrong. Otherwise I'd look terribly dumb ><.

Klot - What particularly? There are only 2 thresholds of soft-caps. 250% (for every battle skill, except throwing, for some reason it's secondary), and 200% for everything else (both PVE and secondary skills).
After reaching soft-cap level (24 if nothing has changed, I slightly remember something about changing it), you will be able to spend SP into any of your "battle skills" till you reach the maximum, which is either 250% or *% of your tagged skill.
And concerning Secondary ones I believe I've written something right above.

P.S.
I'm sure I've got something wrong, please double-check me, stuck in this stupid trafic jam ><

LoL yes I am concerned I had got it wrong too, I had just finished explaining how I thought it worked to 2 non native english speakers who had chosen gifted, I would hate to have given them bad information, or have to re-explain.

Thank you for taking the time to explain it out for me, and yes I agree if that is the only bonus it is nothing to worry about.

Damn English and the 17 different meanings we give to each word!
