How do you manage your combat arts?

#1 Posted by raddevon (508 posts) -

I was playing Sacred 2 a bit over the weekend. I entered a dungeon and noticed a tip on the loading screen that told me I should not try to learn all the combat arts. I have already learned all of them. Will this cause me a problem? Will they somehow be less effective since I have learned them all, or does the tip just mean that I should focus on leveling only a few of them? I knew that on my 360 version, I didn't have enough slots to slot them all, but I assumed I was supposed to make combos to get them all in there. How do you manage your combat arts? What strategies are you using?

It probably meant you should focus. 
The biggest problem with levelling arts is each level generally increases the regeneration time by quite a bit. Slotting runes into armour halves that penalty, so a lot of people recommend only levelling an art once, and making up the difference with skill-boosting equipment. 
I'm not a fan of min-maxing personally, so I've levelled my go-to skills a few times; but I've been experimenting with concentration, stamina and armour-slotting too.
