Professional Training (Hunter: The Vigil) gives you asset skills. At character creation you get some number additional specialities.

Do they have any other use? I've not combed every paragraph in the book, but I've had a fair hunt (drum-kit falls off cliff).

What use if any do they have?

They combo with the Professional Training merit.

You've missed something. Professions give you Asset Skills; each profession has two, and you choose one that gives you the extra specialty. The merit Professional Training gives you more of them, and lets you do more with them.

  • At Professional Training ••, you get a 3rd Asset skill. If this is character creation, you can pick your specialty from here.
  • At Professional Training •••, Specialties in your Asset skills only cost 2xp.
  • At Professional Training •••••, you can spend a WP to treat the next roll with that skill as a Rote Action (in some circumstances).

Professional Training ••••• seems to be the only reason to care about them as part of the merit.... –  Pureferret Apr 3 '14 at 0:36
@Pureferret Mostly. It's meant more for Tier 1 characters who want a bit of an edge; once you get into higher tiers, the relative benefit is less. –  Jadasc Apr 3 '14 at 0:39
Thanks for clarifying the tier point. It's sounds like it should be more useful than it is. –  Pureferret Apr 3 '14 at 0:42
