The Roman Numerals.
 
Hey guys, a couple quick questions. What is the meaning of the Roman Numerals at the end of a power title? For instance, "leg sweep II". Also, how high do the numerals go? (IE leg sweep XVI). Thanks!

for weapons etc they are MK I to MK X
bo skills and kit abilities are usually capped at around III but that is skill dependent (there are some with only 2 ranks or only one)

Thanks for the quick reply. I assumed it worked the same as weapons, but wasn't sure. Is it also fair to assume a BO with a "leg sweep I" can not be trained to a "leg sweep III" without the use of another BO with the higher power (thus replacing another high-tier power)? Also is a power marked III ALWAYS more powerful than a power marked I or II. Are there powers that are inherently better, making them more useful/powerful than a similiar power of higher rank? Thanks again.

A BO can have both, although my opinion is that it's a bit pointless having 1, I'd rather have a variety of abilities on my officers. As such I'm not sure whether they'd share a cooldown or not.
And a higher ranked power will always be more powerful, but not always more desirable, as other powers will be available that may be of more use to you.

If I'm not mistaken, there are 4 levels of powers, one for each 'rank' of the BOFF. (The higher level powers can only be taught to them by rare BOFFs or by raising your own abilities). II provides more oomph than I does, III than II, etc..
