It was less about having two awesome skills combined and more about higher levels = bigger numbers = INSANE damage output and health for enemies. As you go up in levels, enemies gain more damage and health than the player does, eventually far outstripping what the player can do. They did say they'd rebalanced the whole game for it though.|
That said, we don't know (although it's safe to assume) if we get a 1:1 ration of levels and skillpoints or something else like only being able to choose one end tier game changer.
Oh and FYI, the first game's level came with General Knoxx (3rd DLC) and a second level cap raise was patched in for free.
