History

  • Before March 9th, only one Stat can be queued with upgrade points, which will maximize it by filling it with all available upgrade points, rather than setting the number of the upgrade points to be queued. This can be done by pressing M and the number key that corresponds to the Stat you want to queue with upgrade points.
    • If you queue upgrade points into a Stat while having upgrade points queued in other stat, the previous queue will be canceled. Thus, you have to queue upgrade points many times every time you want to add points in different stats.
    • Also, there was no mark of queued skill points during that time, needing the player to remember what Stat is next in the queue.
