Ok, so this pertains sort of to runes, but also to attribute points. Once you have an attribute at level 12, the skills reach thier max right? So, let's say if I have Fire at 12, if I were to use runes to increase that up will the skills still scale with it or are they capped at what they do after 12? What are the good things about getting an attribute over 12...does it effect the mitigation and resistance against things you cast on? So for example will flare do more damage to a creatue when you have 14 skill versus 12 skill after the skill reached its max. If there is no plus to raising a skill above 12, then you could really create some interesting builds using runes to get skills higher.
Also, does Energy Storage still give you +3 energy for every point above 12?
