For weapons that can be used via multiple skills (dagger = balanced/thrown, light spear = pole arm/thrown, katar = unarmed/balanced, etc), do you gain the Weapon Tricks when you have either weapon skill at 3xTier ranks or do you have to have a particular skill at that level?

For the melee/thrown ones, most of the Tricks are melee-based so that might make sense but, for the multiple melee ones (katar and a few others iirc), it would seem like either skill should work.

For weapons that are melee but can be thrown, you need the Melee Skill at 3/6/9/12/15 ranks in order to qualify. You'd use the ranged skill to make the attack.

The Katar can use either Balanced or Unarmed, as it has the Adaptable Style Trait which is defined as:

Weapons with this quality may be used with the listed alternate combat skill. Ranks in this alternate skill may be used to qualify for weapon tricks.

Thanks. I'd forgotten about that second sentence of Adaptable (and didn't have my book handy).
