I apologise if this has already been discussed, but I cannot see information on this... I saw mention, and I cannot remember where, of bonuses you receive when levelling up your path. These appeared to affect the character in ways that would be useful for their combat effectiveness. Does anyone know if your path will affect your stats/abilities in a way that will be significant come elder game? Will the path be something that will be worth choosing based on what it offers your character if you are the kind of player who wants to min/max their combat effectiveness?
