Skill Proficiency: . . . . .These skills are immensely expensive to learn and should not be taken lightly as they are intended for accomplished players only as a way to help concentrate on a couple of skill trees. The benefits of raising proficiencies in skill trees are: For the Taming tree, this will dramatically increase the power of your pet. The amount of benefit will vary but many pet owners (insert only the few who have 1million + exp to burn after unlearning) could see their pet double in health and damage output. Sorry but this is just plain old junk . . . Where is the fix to balance the 600+ points already spent in a tree . . . . There is already a skill in the tree just for making pets stronger . . . Combat Training. The tree itself is very expensive to learn not only in skill points but effort to use them since one needs many complicated resources to be used to make the items. If you have spent 600 + levels in your tree and GMed 4 skills you have already incurred an IMMENSE amount of time / effort / resources to do this why do I now have to do it again. Basically this is what is going to happen - some of the power gamers are going to unlearn a few of the less viable trees and just master and become proficient in Taming and walk around with some Prismatic Fire Mosquito and just wail away at any scene with impudence. I will of course go test a little but I do not have skill I can just waste away to become proficient in a blink as others can.
