What about a gifted pointman? Does his gifted quality allow his "always a class skill" to count as a scientist class skill [which it would be, were he a scientist]??
Nope, the Gifted talent make a skill a class skill for you
, but it doesn't add that skill to any class skill lists. Same thing happens with the Virtuoso - it makes something a class skill for you, but doesn't alter the class skill list. Check the Advocate's by any means
, the pointman's versitility
, or many master class' continuity
. Those abilities actually edit the class.Ph.D
's wording is very specific - Go to Scientist (or Virtuoso) class skill list. Pick one. Ph.D
powerful, so it has a couple of locks built into its behavior to ensure that the mechanic of massively increasing your skill rank cap can be used for other skills without the Scientist/Virtuoso always being able to match the other class in it's specialty, and often beat it due to the strong skill feat support.
