My PC is a spont-only generalist Seeker and Mystagogue. There are enough insight sources about breakthroughs he fancies in Ancient Magic, Hedge Magic, Legends of Hermes, and Mythic Locations to keep him happy and busy with Seeker adventures and integration research for a long time. He is also going to have few problems inventing initiation scripts for the Virtues he acquires. So far, so good.
Eventually, however, he is going to wish for complete Hermetic integration of the various Hermetic and Supernatural Virtues he acquired, for the sake of improving the Order even if it does not personally benefits him. In all likelihood, he is going to shun risky original research at least until warping stops being a problem thanks to immortality. I do not understand if there are going to be worthwhile insight sources for full-integration research or it is going to be original research. E.g. can you use the same or similar insight sources you used for first-stage integration, your own Lab Text notes, or the ones of other mages that researched the same breakthrough?
Moreover, I am contemplating using Weak Scholar as an Ordeal for self-initiation. My PC cannot use formulaic magic, so he could not care less about spell Lab Texts. Difficulties with using the enchanting device LT of other mages are probably going to be an occasional irritant, but not a serious burden. However, I really wish to avoid making him any less than optimal at breakthrough research. Would Weak Scholar be a significant problem in this regard?
