Hi wobbly, particularly good to hear from you.

Hmm. Okay. I'll give some thought to coming up with something better. Could even move Knock Back into its place.

Perhaps it needs a rebalance then. I noted it was under-represented on the winners list here:

This again was not widely used, as far as I can see. Could you explain a little bit more about the circumstances in which it's useful? I feel it may be a bit niche.

Noted. I may have been lumping it in with the pacifist skills which really seemed to not be very useful at present.

This is fair. I wanted to spread identification skills around a little bit, as I think currently perception suffers from the "easy option" for identification being to spend 7 points and 2 skills in that tree, and I wanted to give more alternatives to get to an acceptable result. This alternative may be more hassle than it's worth.
