While creating a new character for a home game, I came across a few things that didn't make sense to me:

Why does Battle Magi talent specifically require Balanced and "blade"? Do every single combat mage in Arcanis really use a sword? Further, if it is blades only, why is it a prerequisite for Arcimous Primus fighting style which explicitly uses any melee weapon (usually one-handed)? It seems that either Battle Magi needs to be changed to work with any melee weapon type or Arcimous Primus needs to remove Battle Magi from prereqs (otherwise, Battle Magi is a skill (Melee (Balanced)) and talent tax just to get Arcimous Primus for non-sword wielders).

Why is the Quarterstaff not Quick? Double Spear is Quick but not Quarterstaff. If anything, I would have expected these to be reversed. A quarterstaff is all about rapid moves and attacks (not brute force).
