Quick question while going through my first play - does the "Rule of 6" apply to skills as well, or can skills be boosted above that?

I was playing a human warrior (base of 5 fighting skill altogether), and then picked up an ally which gave me a +1 bonus. After completing my saga, and dropping an asset, my total fighting skill was up to 9 (the 6 I had and +3 from taking the fortress). That (coupled with some high quality breast plate armor) led to a pretty easy fight against the Abbess of Penance.

Just want to make sure that I did it right.

To clarify we're talking about attributes here (the heroes' stats) - there is no limit to how high they can go.
Skills are the cards you gain from completing Saga chapters, so you'll have a maximum of 4 Skills by the end of your Saga.
And if you're finding the game easier, feel free to check out the Official Difficulty Variants...

I'm kind of surprised you found it easy with 9. I had 12 and it came down to the wire.

Ah, yes, I did mean attributes. Thanks!
