In other words, 1 skill increase might not be all that significant in the larger sense, but 4 or 5 skill increases could be enough to show that there is a real bemefit.

I don't really want to know specific numbers but if I do happen to examine any data I might or might not gather, and it shows for example, that at Skill 0 such and such ability does(oh let's just call it 'damage') x amount of 'damage', and at skill 1 the same ability does x amount of 'damage' +2 points, but at skill 5 that same ability does x amount of 'damage' +100 points, then that's a pretty significant increase imo. Note that 'damage' in this sense does not equate to a direct attack, 'damage' could be as simple as an increase of time the ability is active. It is simply just an indicater of what the ability does as it's focus.

Some food for thought anyway.
