Default Re: Innate Attack Perk

Switching from DX to another attribute isn't that big of a deal for a single skill, and is particularly not too big of a deal for ranged combat skills. You'll still need DX for all the other things DX does (including melee combat, which is why it's particularly not a big deal for ranged combat skills). With switching to Per, there is a small issue that you're rather unlikely to buy the skill above Default+6 [4], as you can boost overall Per (and all your other Per-based skills, which anyone with "high Per" as part of their character concept is likely to have several of) for just [1] more than raising that skill alone. That's really more a potential characterization issue than a game balance issue, however, and may be a complete non-issue if the GM doesn't let your Per vary much from your IQ.
