Re: soldier trait cost question
The cost is relative to your level and the equivalent-level for the trait.
At 65 the first rank is far below yours (thus very inexpensive). At 35 the first rank isn't nearly as far below you. Thus it's more expensive.
Also, buying a trait above your level is more expensive than waiting until it's the same as or lower than you.
