[01] Introduction:

Deus Ex is by far one of the most amazing and intuitive games I've
ever played. It seamlessly combines the goodness from multiple genres
into a vivid, thought-provoking game that will last for a long time.

If, like me, you're familiar with the urge to play the game not only
once, but multiple times in multiple different ways, you will find a
whole host of assistance on the net. From no kills to no skill
point/augmentation/weapon upgrades to speed runs and other humorous
events.

Having purchased the game off Steam, and being already familiar with
it, I decided to play the game and obtain as much as I possibly could
in one go. I looked around for guides pertaining the total and
location of the multitude of skill points, but strangely enough,
there were none.

To cut a long story short, as I could not find one, I decided to
create one. Below is probably the most comprehensive collection of
skill points around (as I have not seen any other beyond
dead links) that covers all routes through each section. It is brief,
to the point and contains nothing except what you need to achieve
what you desire.

There are only a few things to note. The first is that this was
completed using V1.112fm of Deus Ex: Game of the Year addition on
Steam. The second is that whilst I did spend a number of hours
producing this, the odd bonus may have slipped past me (Despite
everything being correct so far). If I've missed anything, or you
know something I don't, contact me so it can be added.
Credit will be given in full.

I will add that this is intended for experienced players, as my
descriptions will not be surgically accurate and there are a few
spoilers. Those familiar with the game will have no trouble at all.
Have fun

[03] Skill Distribution:

As we can now see, there are a limited amount of skill points made
available to the player through the whole game. Below is a list of
the most effective way to place them regardless of how your play
style is. I suppose all that would differ is what order they would
be implemented. Whilst opinion will always vary, a lot of the skills
can be ignored due to post cost to use ratio whilst others just
ignored through necessity.

Skill name - Level of training - Amount of SP used - Total SP used

Heavy - Advanced - 4050 - 4050
Pistol - Trained - 0 - 4050
Rifle - Master - 9975 - 14025
Low-Tech - Trained - 1350 - 15375
Demolition - Advanced 2700 - 18075
Environmental - Advanced - 2025 - 20100
Lockpicking - Trained - 1800 - 21900
