An anonymous source handed me a note with further information on Captain skills changes, while being dragged inside a black SUV…
- Captain Skill revamp is not part of patch 0.5.15
- Once a Captain reaches max level (19), all the XP he earns is converted into Elite XP instead of being lost. Elite XP can be spent on other captains to advance their ranks. You can do that with Free XP as well.
- Elite XP can be converted to Free XP for doubloons, same ratio as ship elite XP to free XP
