Umm, Attributes cost 4BP, not 5, so you have an extra BP for something.=) -Sabis

Heh, my bad. I'll make my Join Battle combo better then. - IanPrice

So confused on your Essence 5 build. You may have been confused as I was by the wording. For Essence 5, you get: Free upgrade to Essence 5. 50xp. 4bp for a new 4 charm combo, and then 5bp for a new 5 charm combo. The rest of the charms in your MA tree, and then 5 charms of any type. To the best of my knowledge, you cannot upgrade previous combo's after they are set up. Unless Nikink was allowing that specifically, as RAW says it doesn't work that way. - Sabis

I assumed the builds were separate since BP doesn't happen at separate steps ever before in my experience. Anyway, that being the case, forget it. - IanPrice
