Hello :) Not too sure where to ask this, but I guess newbie questions fit. I used to play sleuth a long time ago, then left, and I'm back :)
I'm wondering what skills to get next? I'm very smart.
Hand Writing Analysis
Advanced Thread Analysis
Advanced Hair Analysis
Order o Socrates: Fair(9)
Arcanum Brthrhd: Poor(-1)
Cosa Nostra: Poor(-3)
Trying to increase the back 2, but I haven't had a faction twist in a while now.... do factions return to 0 after some time?
Deciding what to get next?
What does lock picking do? I know it lets me get into locked houses during cases.
How about stress detection?
(My equipment gives me very negative charming stats, so I'm ignoring charming skills.)
Anikka is right with one exception... Negative faction score will "drop" until it comes to -3, then you will have to do the remaining with faction slanting cases.
I am sorry to correct you Anikka, but the reason why you did not know/remember, are probably because you have never been as bad as I have been ;-)
