    I removed the exp cap, which limits fighters to level 19, and just reached level 20. At this level I was able to choose some special ability. So, why is the exp cap in the game if it prevents you from gaining these abilities? Apparently they developed the game so you could advance past level 20 and gain these abilities?

    Those special abilities were included in the Throne of Bhaal expansion, which I assume you have. If you did not have it then they would not be available.

    If (s)he had TOB installed, the cap would be 8 million, not 2,950,000, so (s)he wouldn't need to remove the cap to get to level 20.

    schwartr, what "special ability" did you get?

    I tend to think an exp cap is unnecessary as you are going to have to fight alot of monsters to reach it. And if you do then you've earned whatever level you can get.

    It is possible that the makers of SoA were already thinking of some abilities when they made the game but didn't get around to finishing all of them before the game was put out (like the adventure with Sune's statue/bust). Thus they dropped them all before sending out the game.

    What did you find yourself having access to ability-wise?
