QuoteThird point -- remember, this is The Choice. It's narrativism. Choosing between Arete or Hubris isn't just color. Ultimately, it indicates where your character stands on authority in the universe. "Whose world do you want to live in? The one created for your or the one created by you?" If you choose the former, you'll tend to use Arete. If you choose the latter, you'll use Hubris more often.
QuoteIs there (or could there be), something that can ONLY be done with Hubris? No matter how excellent you are, Arete can never accomplish X. Similiarly something that can ONLY be done with Arete. No matter how much magical power you control, Hubris can never accomplish Y.
