The character also gains a +1 bonus for every 5 ranks in this skill to all saving throws against spells.
This needs testing, but should, with HG's modifications to the way saving throws work, go a long way towards getting more than +20 saves vs Spells (iirc, you can get up to +25, but you can only get it by having a total of +25 vs Spells, particularly).
I highly doubt the skill is taken for the save bonus as the reason--although in hindsight maybe so many ranks are taken (assuming taken for counterpselling) to hopefully help ameliorate a save penalty after heavy pens+curse
skill points didnt add up for me there wasnt enough points to take all the skills he has listed what am i missing? or is the build still not viable? what other open sub builds are viable? I just need something that can get me to level 60 as easily as possible. Then I can use bur subbys as they become available. Arek says this build is fixed , I would argue that it still needs work ;p
