      Maybe, maybe not. The Blood Talons legend clashes with what’s possibly going on in Basra , for example.

      • Can spirits use gifts since they are the ones who give them to werewolves?

        • No. A Gift isn't something a spirit has that it shares with you or a trick it knows that it teaches to you. It's a ritual scar a spirit can tear into a werewolf's body and spirit (or which a werewolf can tear into herself from a successfully hunted spirit), like the spirit's Essence lodging itself in as a part of the half-flesh, half-spiritual werewolf. A Gift is more like the product of intermingling of Uratha and spirit Essence. Spirits are missing half the equation.

          Nothing's stopping a Storyteller from giving a spirit a Numen based on a Gift effect (or any other supernatural power writeup from another gameline, for that matter), but that should probably be saved for when the available Numina and Influences don't adequately represent some signature thing a spirit would do. Gifts are written for werewolves, so they're huntier (and PC-ier) than the average spirit Numen.

          • Imagine it like this: The power behind all Gifts is that of the werewolf. The Gifts provide Facets, aka lenses, through which the werewolf can express their powers in different ways. That's why so many Facets affect werewolf subjects, like packs, or Death Rage, when those would be unusable for the spirit who imparted the Gift in the first place.

            • In Book of Spirits it mentions that Naturae can take the Greater Influence Numina. Is that still valid in 2ed ? So lets say we have a Rank 3 sea spirit with Influence: Storms 3.

              Does it mean it can be taken once to gain Influence 4 ? If so, it can only be taken once, correct ? Or does the Rank limit still apply ?

                Rank always applied with Greater Influence. In the Book of Spirits Greater Influence just allowed you to have more Influences but as it states on p142, 'No spirit may have a single Influence greater than its Rank, or more different kinds of Influences than its Rank.'

                In second edition this is simplified by not having a separate Numina for Greater Influence, and just offering a flat 'Spirits may reduce their number of Numina granted by Rank to increase Influence dots at a cost of one Numen per dot.' From p186 of the core.
