Are the tough skills of any use to a charming detective? I have all the smart & charming skills plus research & lockpicking. There are some other faction skills I am still working toward but am curious if after that it would be useful to get the tough skills?

It makes no difference if you are tough or charming all skills work the same, the type of detective you are only makes a difference to how much the skills cost you

Stress detection is then the only one you should care

You can see we have a variety of opinions here. I'm still with the useful side, but truth be told, you truly only need one side, charming or tough, to be really effective as a detective. The other is gravy. Helpful gravy, but gravy. ;-)

see now stress detection is the skill I almost got last. It's just well, I never use it. I've gotten to a point where I just tend to bludgeon my way through suspects only using charm. It would do me no good anyway, my stats are -tough. I suppose that if you were a detective that was using mixed stats eg part charm / part tough you would use it. But I'm not necessarily sure that's a great path to follow.

Hey thats a good point Squirrel. I have both tough and charm skills, and even then I don't use stress detection. I had it with my old detective, and found it very useless to me.

Are y'all talking about Judge of Character? I use Stress Detection all the time - it is after all automatic. At first I thought it was useful, but now that I've tweaked my strategy I honestly think my completion rate would really drop off without it.

Judge of Character, however, meh...

Thanx for all the input! I have Judge of character and I really don't use it much anymore since charm is always higher for me. Is there anything else to do with skill points after I get the other faction skills I want?

LOL well VS was prob talking about SD ;) but yes I was walking about JoC. I 'was' going to embarrass myself further and post all the times over the last couple of years I have gotten these two skills confused, but I figure one bout of stupidity for the say is enough. But I'm glad I dragged someone else down with me though :) thanks Jas. lol.

I've always liked Stress detection, not so much for the suspects but the townies, it's helped me to know when they will want a bribe and or answer one more
