    Title: Water school, follow-up skill can be learned before even learning the prior skill
    Reproduction Rate:
    Blocker? no
    Details:
    When opening the skill tree of e.g. the water school at the master trainer (Griselda in Ardoris) she offers to teach me "Fire Warding".

    That is strange and probasbly wrong, because Fire Warding is a skill that is in Tier 4 and should (according to the lines in the diagram) require that one has learned "Blue Blooded" before and that in turn requires that one has learned and trained Icy Breath up to 40.

    The cause of the error is likely that Fire Warding has been given the requirement "Blue Blooded (Level 0)" and so the trainer offers it for training immediately because Blue Blooded is = 0 right from the start before even learning it - which practically makes it a Tier 1 skill as it can be learned immediately.

    The correct way IMO would be to require Blue Blooded to either be >= 1 or if at least thad Blue Blooded had been learned before.

    The same problem exists with the Warding skills and their prerequisite skills in all magic schools.

    the warding skills are meant to be available to learn without any other magic known in the tree, but the system as implemented does not allow for two first-level skills. setting the requirement to a previous skill in the tree is necessary. setting the level required to zero is a cheat to get around that restriction. their placement position in the skill trees therefore becomes irrelevant.
