Please correct the following if my understanding is incorrect.
The diminishing returns on putting points into a skill is not to be confused with the actual points in a skill.
1-3 is +18 per point.
4-6 is +10 per point.
7-9 is +5 per point.
It's difficult to discuss, because there's skill and there's skill - lol. Heck, there's also skill (can't forget how much a skill costs).
Skill Point Cost?
Skill Level has diminishing returns. You get -8 Skill Bonus per Skill Level from 4-6 than you did 1-3. You get -5 Skill Bonus per Skill Level from 7-9 than you did 4-6.
However, each "point" of Skill Bonus does not have diminishing returns.
4 Skill Levels shows diminishing returns because unlike 1-3, where you went 18-36-54, with 4 you're going to 64. Likewise, 7 shows DR because unlike 4-6, where you went 64-74-84, with 7 you're going to 89.
200 skill bonus is twice the benefit of 100. 150 twice 75, etc, etc, etc.
Thus, there is no DR with the T4.
