Okay just trained fast talk to five on my main and there is absolutely no difference in my security status going from level four to five at all. I had 4.8 status before, and now 4.8 status after.

When my security status increases from killing rats the increases are no higher either.

Is this a known bug or should I petition it? Too bad I spent a long time training this...

Thanks for any help.

There is a lot of confusion about this skill and its been posted before. No dev has replied either. Some say it was ment to only be used for concorde agents when they were available some say it does work others say it dont.
Personally i wouldnt bother training it until theres an official post from a dev to say exactly what it does.

Fast talk is GREAT if you are -10 and you need to get down to -1.9 for empire access. this will boost your time BIG TIME.

Yea - I think the bonus is wrong - and you will be getting like 5% of the % increase of the rats killed - i.e. very very small .

Odd, when I trained it couple levels high (to lv4), I seemed to notice security increases to change from 0.20% to 0.22% per typical NPC BS I killed.

Might have been change in the rat types too; didn't really execute it as a test..

Yeah it increased things on 1-4 but 4-5 didn't do anything at all.

Could have used the 15ish days training time for some other skills hehe. Oh well.

scratch that.

I think it might be a rounding up error for not seeing that further 5% sec gain per kill

I suspect that it also works on a similar sliding scale the way connections does... as you get higher standing, the bonus applied gets less (it's a % of the difference between your Standing and +10) so starting at 0 Standing lvl 5 connections would contribute to give you a 2.5 standing... but at 9.0 standing it would contribute to give you 9.25...
