Do they have a point, given the fact that you can train any officer in any set of skills at the trainer? I'm getting offered them left, right and center and so far, I've not seen a single one with a rare skill so I'm wondering exactly just what is it that makes them rare?
Probably around the same time you lost your manners.
Yeah I suppose you are right. How impolite of me to expect people to scroll down the list by about 10 or 15 topics. And hell, what was I thinking when I supplied you with a link answering your question despite everything. Boy I am so way out of line.
On the good side: -1 person to help in the future.
Jolly good, -1 rude and annoying troll. Anyway, the points raised in that thread are not evident from what I've seen and unfortunately, I've got rare BOs coming out my ears. They all have largely the same skills I've trained my original BOs in with the trainer. I've to-date, had one mission where the team died (against those nasty Vampric Reman bosses), other than that I breeze through ground combat so again, the point I'm raising is a slightly different one to the one in the other post and that is, is there a point to them?
Has anyone else had a BO with a skill not available at the trainer and if so, what was that skill, please?
He's right. You don't read. I'll help anyway, though.
As has been stated many, many times before in hundreds of threads daily, uncommon/rare/very rare BOs can have "Superior" and 'Hyper" traits (much stronger versions of normal BO traits) and/or powers that cannot be trained at the BO trainer or purchased on a BO at the requisitionner. This includes most but not neccesarily all Tier III powers, and some rare tier I and II powers (though I've yet to encounter the latter).
