I understand that one can earn up to 416 skill points between all of the skyshards and leveling etc.
I've been trying to learn/dissect some of the game via the various builds online out there (Alcast's for example), and I'm not understanding the number of spent skill points vice the total available. Seems like you'd have more than you'd ever need unless you got really off the rails, or tried to cram all the crafting masteries on top of a combat/pvp/raid oriented build.
I ask, because I don't want to "gimp" the character if I spend a few points on some skills specifically to level up a line, but don't see those skills being the skills on my hotbar at end game for raiding or pvp. Am I off base here and the skillpoints are actually really tight? I might be misunderstanding what I'm reading, but most of these builds seem to "need" less than 1/3 of the SP to reach their optimum version at endgame.
