The question and/or bug:
I'll show on a pregnant illustration:
1. I have ninja Malkavian, I have one extra dot in melee.
2. There are 3 kinds of books - 1st tier book to give you first or second ability dot, 2nd tier for the third and fourth dot, and the last tier book for the fifth dot.
3. The extra dot counts as regular, so with three dots in melee, the bonus dot functions as fourth, prohibiting me from reading second tier book.
Should it be like this? Thx.
