Adds a new way to spend category points: click on the "Increase Caps" button to increase the level caps for *all* talents by 1, such that you can spend 6 points in each talent instead of 5. You can do this as many times as you have category points.
You still need to spend class/generic points to actually get any benefit out of the increased caps. To help with this - and make the option not strictly worse than increasing mastery - you get 2 bonus class and generic points when you increase the caps.

Also lets you see the description of the next talent level even when you are already at the current cap, so that you always know what increasing the cap will offer you.

Like increasing mastery, this is obviously a bad use of a category point for everyone except Possessor and maybe Doomed and like two Cornacs, but it's fun.



The goal is to get category point mastery increases removed from vanilla (replacing it with this if necessary). Should the next ToME version release with mastery increases still in, Shibari will have to endure a special surprise punishment.

Don't know about the power level of this, but it does look appetising for a necro dead-set on becoming a lich. Allows lvl 7 lichdom while providing more other benefits than the +.2 mastery of necrosis.

This doesn't sound like an incentive to me...

Very interesting. This could yield benefits for escort categories as well, especially if you're a Cornac. The question is, for example would a sixth point in Unflinching Resolve put it to the level that Berserkers and Bulwarks enjoy? Moreover, would it be worth it?

Sorry, but going from 5 to 6 points will only raise the level of .8 talents from effective level 4 to 4.8. So things accessed at tlevel 5 will still be beyond your level.

Well darn, that means Arcane Eye is in the same boat. It's still good though since you still have targeting, and there's always mastery items.
