    You can only unlock a skill if you are of a high enough level - then you need to have purchased the original skill before it unlocks better ones. So if you have unlocked the teleport slash, you then need to buy the one below it which sets them on fire if i remember rightly, then the next level will become available, which steals wrath i think. Also you can "respec" your choices for 1000 gilt from the demon shopkeeper guy (cant remember his name of the top of my head) and reapply all your skill points in a different manner if you wish. Im currently level 19 and I still havnt unlocked all the different abilities yet.

    Im enjoying it so far but there are reports of far to many glitches that can be game breaking for my comfort. Ive managed to avoid a fair few of them so far but I have had it freeze on me and need a reboot a couple of times so far.

    Started playing this last Wednesday and its great. Just on the 1st boss battle in the water dungeon (the boss who looks like a plant :laugh:)
    Not come across any glitches yet and as I don't play RPG's the leveling up stuff is a bit baffling at first, but so far I'd give this game a solid 8/10.
    :thumbsup:

    I'm 21 hours in and on The Chancellor's Quarry side quest. As soon as I try to read The Mysterious Book at the beginning of the Soul Arbiter's Maze it freezes and I have to reboot, but it does it again next time. Looks like I won't be able to do the quest unless there is a way to get it to work.

    Exact same thing happened to me. Ive just found this workaround on the Darksiders 2 forum and it worked for me, im at level 2 of the maze at the moment :thumbsup:

    Arbiter's Maze Workaround

    1. Go into the room with the book
    2. Let game quick save
    3. Quit game
    4. Load game in the room.
    5. Walk towards the book until the "touch book appears"
    6. Pause and go to options
    7. Turn off every checked box (vibrate, auto pick up...etc)
    8. Turn all music and sound to zero
    9. Lower gamma to half
    10. leave menu (game will save)
    11. Click book.

    Thanks go to Ddrizel on the Darksiders forum

    Just done the whole Arbiters maze in one sitting to get it out of the way and avoid any further glitches on it

    The work around worked perfectly :thumbsup:

    Glad thats sorted now :D

    Got this at home and gagging to play. Almost finished with Alice Madness Returns so will be able to break it out soon enough.

    Loved DS1 so have great hopes for this.

    Managed to unwrap and play it last night for about 35 minutes, just gone into the first dungeon.

    Took me a while to remember the buttons and stuff but enjoying it already.

    I like it feels more open world than the first.

    I'm playing on Apocolyptic and so far it's been a bit of a breeze. Took a while to get used to the menu system but I like how the loot drops and you can instantly see if it is better or worse than what you're wearing.

    My first tough part (and not a spoiler really) is one of the buildings on the left on the way to the first dungeon. Ran into a level 5 dog like thing. Took me a fair few goes to defeat him, but managed to get there in the end.

    Love the game and cannot wait to get stuck in properly.

    Wish they would have cut down on the screen tear / frame rate issues though (ps3, obviously :) )
