I've just started with Rift, but I'm having some trouble spending my soul points the way I want. If I select the skill I want to put a point in, it just says:
"You cannot spend any more points on this Soul until you level up."
You can see this in the following screenshot:
Why is this? I have 1 point remaining, I don't want to spend it in the suggested skill but in a skill of my own choosing.
I've tried Googling the issue, and the Soul System FAQ did seem to have the appropriate info:
Why won’t it let me put points where I want?
The Purpose system is in place in order to guide you to Soul builds that are widely used and are useful to many players. You can override this system by clicking on a talent outside of the recommended one. Once you do that you will see a popup like the one below:
Click on ‘OK’ and it will place that point where you chose. Once you do this, hit 'Save', and then exit the Soul UI, you will no longer be following a preset build and will have to make all choices for spending Soul Points.
However, this is just not what happens for me, as you can see in the screenshot.
What am I not getting here?
