You can't put points into the new paragon trait until you have every single other trait. Its no different than before with the 35th point.
No, but you can go TO it, right, just not into it? Question is whether you go to and get the new golden trait or some of the old traits that have new 4/4 status, which is possible and worth thinking about, though I'm just going after that flame rift.

Not many I don't think, but it's probably worth discussing and certainly possible to do. I know priests and paladins are considering it I think.
