Kat: In response to your confusion from the Char Planning thread::
If you join 2 weeks (?) upon PT's opening, you get 1500 latens to spend on skills. Those who joins thereafter gets 1000. So 1500 latens = six abilities. Some exhausted only 1000 cuz the basics guide says that the 1000 latens that a char originally gets (y'know, for slowpokes) had to be exhausted, but we don't know whether the bonus 500 also have to be spent.
