At 4th level, can a Slayer choose Ranger Fighting Style and choose another Archery talent? Based on how the text reads, it seems the Slayer may not be able to select this particular talent again until 6th level.
Ranger Combat Style (Ex): The slayer selects a ranger combat style (such as archery or two-weapon combat) and gains a combat feat from the first feat list of that style. He can choose feats from his selected combat style, even if he does not have the normal prerequisites. At 6th level, he may select this talent again and add the 6th-level ranger combat feats from his chosen style to the list. At 10th level, he may select this talent again and add the 10th-level ranger combat feats from his chosen style to the list.
I chose this at 2nd level and selected Precise Shot. I was hoping to select this again at 4th level and select another one available at 2nd level. My idea was to spend feats on melee, and talents on ranged combat.
You can't select until 6th level, then level 10 again. Big reminder that ranger combat feats have no requirements, so just use it. Like getting rapid shot at level 2 for example.
You can also get rogue talent combat trick to get a combat feat but you need to have the required feats for those.
After some research, I think I came up with a forecast of my Slayer Talents.
Level 2: Precise Shot
Level 4: Combat Trick (Point Blank Shot)
Level 6: ManyShot
Level 8: Either Weapon Training-Longbow OR Combat Trick (Rapid Shot)
Level 10: Two Weapon Rend
My question is whether or not I can select Combat Trick a 2nd time for the Rogue talent. It says "This talent can be selected multiple times; each time, it grants the slayer a new rogue talent." It could be up for debate on whether or not new means a different one from before, or you can double up on the same one (Combat Trick) but technically its new because its taken at a different time.
For example: I buy a Core Rulebook today, and tomorrow I buy another Core Rulebook. Same book, but the 2nd one is technically "new". I may be splitting hairs but I was curious if this has been discussed before and there is a PFS legal answer. I would prefer to take Rapid Shot over Weapon Focus.
