Finding Skill Trainers

ShirleyJones

I'm very confused and have read through all the help pages and FAQs trying to find the answer, but I've been unsuccessful so I was wondering if someone could help me out. I planned to completely train in tobacco analysis, but after gaining 2/3 of the skill levels, the tobacconeer said to find someone else to train me if I wanted to further my skill level. Who else can train me? Do I need to be subscribed to have access to the final trainer? Do all the skills have multiple trainers available that I'm not aware of?

Not all 2nd level trainers will be available to train you right after you maxed out the skills from 1st level trainers, as there are exceptions to them, especially for:

Fixer - You only can unlock Fixer if you get at least 1 False Accusation (FA), visit the Bartender and then Fixer will be unlocked
Editor In Chief - You only can unlock the Editor In Chief, after you've reached at least 100,000 xp, found a photo in the bank safe with a bank safe key found in one of the Incredibly Hard cases, then raise the standings for stylist to 40, then Editor In Chief will unlock, then you can check if Editor straight away available to train you or not
Bank President - Same as Editor In Chief, but instead of Stylist, its Locksmith.

In order to unlock 3rd level trainers, you need to unlock them via their respective faction minions.

Lastly, 4th level trainers are only available after you've unlock Editor In Chief and Bank President and their standings must be high enough for you to give them appropriate gifts, so that they can introduce the 4th level trainers to you.

Hope I didn't miss out anything or spoil the game too much, else you can always PM me to ask.
