What is the Review Board looking for before they advance you?

I missed the part during the tutorial about advancing to the 2nd tier of Skills. Now, as far as I can tell, I can't replay that part to get the specific info I need. It's getting annoying, being told, "You returned too soon" repeatedly. My main character has saved up 3 Skill points, but I suspect that I have to save _8_, which seems an ungodly number of XP away.

You have to spend the points, not save them. When you spend points, you may notice a ghostly semi-circle advancing down. When that reaches the end of Tier 1, that character can begin to spend points in Tier 2. The same thing happens with Tier 2 to Tier 3. Hope that helps!

Yep. THANKS!

Tangent query:

It has been mentioned that getting passed by the Review Board is supposed to "unlock new abilities". What might those be? Out in the field, a couple of my characters (Dagleish for one) started to allocate Tier 2 skills, so that suggests to me that Review Board approval isn't required to access those. So what does the Review Board provide that isn't already available?

Nothing - the Review Board only unlocks the second and third tier abilities. The only new abilities are unlocked by completing the quest for the Priest in the Adventurer's Guild Camp.

Last time I sent my party of adventurers there, they acknowledged that found Fiona and rescued Auguin, but that was it. Nothing else and, tier progression.
