It's not a non-choice in the same sense. CS is a very important skill, but if you choose to get it at levels 20 and 24, from that point on you have the same benefit as anyone else. IF is the only skill where you will always pay a price for getting it later.fiernaq wrote:As others have mentioned, IF is not the only "non-choice" skill.

When I saw your suggestion at first I liked it too, but I've gone off it since, for two reasons. First, it flips the HP problem on it's head. Currently nobody takes HP when leveling up, but your suggestion would force them to take HP when leveling up. AC, AD, and BC can all be increased by either taking them when leveling up, or by taking skills, or by relying on gear, or some combination. You can't get much in the way of HP from gear, and with no skill to give you HP the only option would be to get them leveling up. Second, it will still be a non-choice, because for the reasons given above you would have to take HP when leveling up, so if you don't take IF as soon as it's available you will always pay the price.
