What are your favorite skills and attributes new WoD wise?
Personally skill wise I'm fond of Occult, Animal Ken, empathy, academics, and investigation. And occasionally weapondry.
Attributes wise I favor dexterity, wits, intelligence, and composure.

"If you find you are falling into madness -- dive." -Malkavian Proverb
Swords don't need reloading... that's why I am a melee fan .
Depends on the clan and disciplin, but usually Occult.
Does Academics still offer Latin as a free language?
I've always been a big fan of language skills, but yeah, Occult skills are pretty valuable.
In Dark Ages it did, but "Academics" didn't transfer to Masquerade as a knowledge.

Oh ok, when we played, my GM allowed my linguistics professor Immortal to take Academics in Masquerade. I assumed it was part of the regular rules.
We ran a campaign from V/DA to V/M. Our ST allowed us to convert one dot to Latin, and the rest to Religion or a Science. There was no rule, it was up to the individual ST.
Attribute = Wits
Skill = Investigation
Seams they always come up at some point (sometimes even togeather)
For attributes I like Composure and Strength, and skills in Pharmacology (medical), the sciences, and streetwise appeal to me the most.
