Practice: Why Routine times for Stats

On page 48, there’s a column that indicates how long it takes to practice a routine test for stats. Does this ever get used? Stats don’t need Routine tests.

I think it’s for learning training skills which all based on stats.

That’s… unexpected. I’d have thought (say) Shield Training would be a Martial Skill. Must check the book.

(Incidentally, Faith and Steel are also on that table, and I know that they can sometimes use routine tests.)

I looked up the rules for learning training skills, there’s no mention of using stat tests intead of how it’s done for any other skill.

I always assumed they were there as part of whatever Luke did to figure out the times that actually mattered, also in case you created a Trait that let you count routine stat tests for something.
