    From what I’ve seen so far, I’d imagine the answer is no. Then again, why would they have that single skill at all if they can’t take advantage of it? After all, the entire shooting skills tab could be removed just like spell casting’s tab when it isn’t applicable.

    And yet there is still no answer to the question: why isn't it removed?

    I'll do my best.

    The spellcasting tab was added after the initial skill system, after lessons regarding skills had been learned. The spellcasting tab has likely been written in a way that allows it to be easily ignored. There is a good chance that the rest of the skill system has too many interdependencies to allow for a safe, error free removal.

    At the moment the devs are performng a rewrite of hired swords to allow greater customisation. I'm certain a skill rewrite is on the cards but at the moment the changes requested are more player hand holding rather than changing game functionality.

    This is largley a hang over from the tabletop where players have the option to increase BS on characters with limited access to ranged weapons. There are upcoming items that need BS to use but my advice is to avoid BS upgrades for Ghouls.

    As a matter of fact, I connected 'item that requires BS' to blessed water.

    I am crazy but I'm not THAT crazy.
