I've been altering my outlook on buying specs more and more and I am becoming less interested in talents and more so in the skills it will add to my repertoire counting as career skills. I like Scoundrel a lot for that reason, you get a lot of good skills when you start Scoundrel I think. 

 

Yeah, I've been an advocate of spec-buying for a while.  I think there is a cost/benefit up to the second new spec (third total) if you can get at least 3 new career skills in each that you plan to enhance.  The first new spec pays for itself after 6 ranks, the second after 8 (assuming both are out of career).  Plus a lot of the good day-to-day talents are in the first and second rows.  You can end up with a very capable resilient jack-of-all-trades type of character by getting 2 ranks in a lot of skills, and a few cheap Toughness, Grit, and Enduring talents.

I was speaking more to what a Scoundrel has access to in starting out.  Both initiative skills, a bevy of social skills, a combat skill, thieving and underworld skills, Pilot(S), lots of good stuff imo, probably the most all around I think.

I think you mean Durable rather than Enduring, but I still agree that some of the best ranked talents can be picked from the low-hanging branches (low meaning top here).

Ignore, Ignore, you must learn Ignore!

 

Now Ignoring: Nobody.
