    Also a good tip - invest into survival early on, there was a skill that gives you x3 xp for all exploration and secrets, and since you will find a lot of em especially if your perception is good, you will get a lot of xp early on

    Sounds like min-maxing is completely unnecessary. I was going to wait a week or so to let them patch the inevitable bugs, but maybe they'll do something about difficulty too.

    You can turn off the voiceover completely by the way.

    Is it? There are plenty of ways to gain skill points. There are perks granting 30 or even 60 skill points in total. There is one way to increase perk progression but that one needs a very weird stat combination that is not easy to come by and is not available before level 9. At level 20 you have "lost" 60. Slacker essentially gives you a significant boost right at the start but slows your progression a little. At worst you will end up needing a level extra to max another skill. /shrug

    It depends, do you value skill points or perks more. Me? I value perks more.

    Just noticed not everything is fully voiced, including dialogue.

    So is there a difficulty where all the boni are disabled or is the classic one the highest?

    The highest difficulty, "Tactical" doesn't have any bonuses. It's basically the normal mode.

    You can play both. If you know the book and have decent writer talent, you'd scream murder what they did to story.

    Well, the game runs and looks great, that's for sure. Love the UI and overall aesthetic. Writing is nice too. The voice-acting isn't half bad, but I'll probably turn it off anyway because it slows my reading pace a bit.

    Trying to quickly get to some combat/exploration and see what's what.

    Great atmosphere, nice character building so far. Combat probably too easy sadly. As I have said before I never played much beyond the prologue during the beta testing phase as to not spoil too much of the game so my knowledge is overall limited.

    Do I get that right they split the applied skills from the combat skills and you dont have to share points?
