Bonus Skill Suggestion: Weather Skill

There is an empty space in the "bonus skills slot" in the skill tree that you can't full up so I think there should be a weather skill. Anyone else agree?

The empty slot is used by certain users that were around last Christmas to get the Christmas bonus skill.

I personally feel that a lot of "weather" words are taught throughout the tree. This might just be because I cannot think of words other than "hot", "cold", "rain", and "snow" or words that don't relate back to time like "summer", "spring", "autumn" or "winter".

Really like the idea link, it would be helpful for small talk with people.

I think it should be mandatory in the French (and other) tree(s). It is used everyday and (like TheLdawg said) would be helpful for small talk.

Sounds good. There are a lot of options to put there like the idioms and flirting. Can't really think of anything right now but there must be more bonus skill ideas out there.

Some of the words, like "rain", "wind" and "it's hot", are already taught, at least on Spanish tree. And user-created courses like Dutch and Irish already have a weather skill on the main tree.
