It looks like I'm in the minority here, but I'm completely lost on how this thing works.

Choose herotype, and the available skills show up. The lines\arrows show what's needed for what, and hovering your cursor over each skill displays it's description.

I just checked, and, it is correct. This complicates matters a bit, but I will implement it.

Nival really ought to incorporate this as a screen in the game in the first patch. I've been feeling like I was flying totally blind on skills through the demo. Very nice.

Also, click on a skill and everything you don't need to get that skill gets dimmed out.

I think there should be something else in Knight´s "Weakening Strike"-ability (Dark Magic) since "Mark of the Damned"-ability which textbar mentiones belongs to demon lord´s cathegory...
Edit: After 2nd thinking: The ability itself is correct, but in the text instead of "Mark of the Damned" should be "Retaliation Strike" perhaps..?? I guess the game itself will give an answer.. :)

hmm very nice,but it is more interesting to dicover this things in the game:x)

we already know to much about this game,that when it is goes relesed we won t enjoy in anything new:x)

the enjoy in every new game is to explore it by yourself:x)

I had no idea some of these skills even existed!

Remote Control sounds particularly hilarious. :)

Very nice! But I found one mistake. Mark of the Damned don't contributes to Excruciating Strike.

I don't have the game yet, so correct me if I'm wrong about this. But it appears that the Knight and Necromancer have to have Ultimate Counterstrike/Necromancy to get their super-ability. And that, if I'm not mistaken, can only be done by getting the Pendant of Mastery. That's a rather serious balance issue. I like that you have to have as many levels in the skill as related abilities, but I hope they had enough sense to allow you to get all four abilities for your main skill once you hit Expert.

Can someone tell me what would a Knight do with a "Weakening Strike" skill? It enhances the "Mark of the Damned", which is a Demon ability.

@Crosis
I doubt that they would need an extra skill. Especialy as those Ultmates aren't the most usefull ones.

And maybe the Weakening Strike applies to Retal. Strike. The ingame description might not be good. The game does have alot of spelling errors and stuff.
