Skills exceeding five points.

#1UltraCookiePosted 9/21/2012 5:00:16 AM
When a skill is increased beyond five points by a mod (for example, have 5/5, then equipping a mod that adds +2 to that skill) when I gain the equivalent bonuses as I would if that skill was actually 7/5, or is it hard capped at 5/5?

The bonus is scaled up as if you had that actual skill level, even if it's above the normal cap.

It will go up to 7/5.

What.

I think the answer would be "Yes" but the way you worded that is pretty damn confusing.

You do get bonuses beyond 5/5 if your class mod pushes the skill beyond 5/5.

Pure example.

If the talent was +1% crit damage per stack and you had 5/5 in talents and +2 in class mod.

You would get +7% not capped at +5.

But beware in the last game this only occurred for some skills. For others pushing it above 5 didn't actually work as an added bonus to anything.

I dont think it would work for skills like Gemini for Axton which allows him to deploy a 2nd turret.

I don't think its available for skills it doesn't work on... that would be plain unreasonable >.>

I remember in Borderlands 1, if you had a mod that gave +2 to a skill, but you had that skill at 0/5, it wouldn't boost up to 2/5. You had to have at least one point in the skill for the mod to affect it.

Does that still happen in this one, or can you boost skills you don't even have?
