Your character's development is as wide-open as the world. Sacred 2 encourages different approaches early on, with the choices gradually narrowing as you specialize at higher levels. Improvements come frequently and in small increments, but every point spent is a painfully difficult choice among multiple types of advancement (attributes, combat arts, special abilities, and skills are all separate -- but interrelated -- types of advancement). All the detail has a very German sensibility. Whereas Diablo is elegant, Sacred 2 is fastidious, stuffed with hard numbers and brimming with tool tips.
