Shield Rep bonus not going over skill cap
 
Have maxxed shield system at 99 its not going over 99 with the +30, is this a tooltip error, cap error or working as intended, if so can we get a retrain for this as no where does it say will not increase of skill cap.

It's not a tool tip error. It will only who skills level in the skill window. If you want to see your total skills look under characters' Stats panel under Skill-Based Stats: Ground. It will show your the skill total.

I think it may be a display issue. I had copied my char to Tribble and selected "Omega Weapon Training" and with the power window open and a dhc selected. I watched my DPS for that weapon jump by 100 when selecting the passive. While this is for weapons and not shields, I am willing to bet the same applies.

I think we should really get a Dev post to clear this up though.

Definately need dev clarification. I got the ground weapon one and checked it (been going slow) and my sniper rifle DPS went from 128 to 131. That doesn't seem right.

Something to keep in mind is that some skills give a lesser return the more points you have in em. So the Weapons proficiency one, if you have 99 in it already, won't give much. But, if you have say...64 points or so (4 or 5 bars) in it, and then get the bonus on top of that, you will have 94 points in it, and on top of that, a few thousand skill points to spend elsewhere. A very tiny amount of damage lost, but in return, gaining some freed up skill points.

not a space thing my weapon proficiency shows up at 129 and manuv shows up at 109 because i did a pilot doff mission, but shield sytem skill sits at 99 which is my base skill i have all 9 levels +30 from rep bonus so its either not displaying or its not being recognised either way it needs to be checked, clarified, refunded or what ever if they are not allowing shield skill to go over cap

At my captain it correctly states 146 for shields (after the +30 from the rep) and 126 for weapons (after the bonus from rep).

skill points have diminishing returns?

I thought only resistance has diminishing returns. skillpoint might cost more at the end but I thought they bring the same.
