It’s probably just an oversight, I was making a skill plan to the EDENCOM Frigate Skybreaker and noticed that on it’s Mastery rank 1, in the certificate Small Vorton Projector asks Vorton Power Amplification level 1, wich can only be trained after Vorton Projector Operation level IV, and the level IV is only asked at the Mastery rank 2. So players can’t be Mastery Rank 1 on Skybreaker due to the requirements.
In my understanding Vorton Projector Operation is the “equivalent” of Gunnery , and Vorton Arc Extension , Vorton Power Amplification , Vorton Arc Guidance are supporting wapon skills like Motion Prediction , Sharpshooter , Rapid Firing , Controlled Bursts, wich only needs Gunnery level II, so the cited Vorton related skill should also only need Vorton Projector Operation level II, not IV. This will fix the mastery rank requirements problem.
Another possibillity is that Vorton Power Amplification is similar to Trajectorial Analysis wich needs Gunnery level IV, but in that case it shouldn’t be asked at Mastery Rank 1, the Trajectorial Analysis is only asked at Mastery Rank 2 in ships that used it, so the Vorton Power Amplification level I can be moved from the Mastery Rank 1, to the Mastery Rank 2 where Vorton Projector Operation is asked to be o level IV, and to make it more similar to Trajectorial Analysis the requirement canbe increasead to level 3 to complete the certificate.
Sorry if something like that was already posted, i couldn’t find it.
