Choose your favored among your heroes and hirelings, and mark followers as favored. This allows you to choose which skill the follower learns when leveling up. A wizard can have a base of one favored follower. This increases by one for each of the following: Researching Leadership, having the Trusted Retainers trait and/or having the Master of Puppets trait. Currently there is no limit on how often you can change your favorites, so the clever player will notice that setting followers as favored just before they level up is the way to make the most of this feature.
During one of the next builds when the relationship system goes in, changing favorites will fuel rivalries which should deter this strategy, unless you have a cunning plan to turn your followers against each other. There will also be other consequences to changing favored status – as well as more benefits than being able to choose skills.
There is also a fix to the City Management screen, which had an annoying display bug. I forgot to mention in that last update that generals now give a buff to regiments depending on character traits and skills.
