Screenshotted/Typedover from Demo. Only corrected the spelling mistakes (seriously Ubisoft, wtf xD). Will fill add the rest soon enough. We won't be able to master all the trees during one run of Singleplayer. That much is certain. I'd estimate 3 "work to the bottoms" will be possible, but who am I!? My first Sareth would be paladin'ish. Grabbing the healing spell and stamina first, then mastering melee combat. Remaining points will be stuffed into poison resistance and extra toughness/mana. HUZAH! Now you!

PS. Whomsoever can make this into a skill calculator like the ones WorldOfWarcraft uses ( http://www.wow-europe.com/en/info/basics/talents/paladin/talents.html ) is my god. I have some skill in Javascript and I'll give it a go if noone else does.

PPS. Could someone make a similair list for the multiplayer skills?

Well you have my permission, though I'm not sure they'd want it. This information is accurate now, but when the game is released it might not be.

From playing the tinkered SP demo, I find myself enjoying a straightforward warrior build the most. Rushing headlong into combat, dishing out the damage and finishing people off with extreme prejudice never feels so good.

In comparison, all the magical skills feel so weak, and they cannot be cast continuously like meele flurry can. Even with full mana regen you're looking at about 5-10 seconds per spell cast (with cooldown restrictions), and most spells can't even finish a goblin off (*ahem* fire arrows *ahem*).

Stealth is okay... I honestly want it to work more like in MP where you become partially invisible when stealthed, instead of this "I'm 5 ft away from you fully visible but you still can't see me" thing they did with the SP stealth skill. I'd also appreciate more stealth kill animations, especially since a warrior/mage gets such a large variety of "fatalities".

Updated with new information, acquired by smallbox. I mistakenly assumed Dark Vision and Alertness were given skills as this is so in the demo. Thus I classified them Tier 0 and gave them 0 cost.

Nothing in the skilltrees is in fact given. Even Nightvision which has 0 cost must be taken. Thus there is no tier 0. *slaps self*

Fixed.

Couldn't anyone just take screenshots of the raw multiplayer skilldata so we can process it? xP

Sadface. And it would be awsome if you/someone could make a talent/skill calculator for the skill trees ^^.

Personally? I'm probably gonna make my first Sareth a sort of Assassasin/Warrior hybrid, not using alot of magic :P. After that I'll prob make a full magic Sareth!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
