# 1 Worth it to skill up to 9/9?
02-03-2010, 10:16 AM
I've noticed that as you level up your captain's skills the amount if points needed to move up increases, especially points 8 and 9 to max out a skill.

I'm wondering, is it worth it to max out skills to 9/9 or better to stop at 7/9 for most skills and use those points on other new skills?

Maxing out the skill gives you a higher rank skill. However sometimes being to spend into 4 different skills is more beneficial than maxing out 1.

Sometimes, the tooltip will say, "Learning all 9 ranks of this skill will allow you to learn: "RANDOM SKILL""

For instance, learning all 9 ranks of Heavy Escort Captain will allow you learn Attack Pattern Beta III.

Do I have to max the LT level phasers to be able to add points to the LT CMD level phaser skills?

After I got to where you wrote "7/9" my thoughts went to an unrelated topic.

No, you can skip a lower level skill box completely. The only thing you have to do is spend "x" number of points to rank up.

Maxing a skill only really seems useful for the extra shiny little skill it gives your BOs. Other than that, it seems to be too much of a cost for too little reward.

disagree 100%

maxing out torps, and projectile weapons can be highly beneficial.

last night while running a romulan sector mission i vaporized a nother vessel with a 10k heavy torpedoe.
