***************************
ii) Artes(Techs and Spells) 
***************************
++++++++++++++++
Tech/Spell Terms
++++++++++++++++
Tales of the Abyss uses the regular Tech Tree which consist of Tokugi[Base], 
Ougi[Arcane] and Hiougi[Mystic]. To obtaining certain Ougi techs, a character 
must use 2 specific Tokugi techs at least 50 times and reaching a certain LVL.
All Hiougi tech requirements are listed below.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Field of Fonims[Fonons](FoF)
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Namco has created a new feature called the Field of Fonims[Fonons]. FoF 
enables a character to evolve their tech/spell after achieving certain 
requirements.

To create a FoF, use any tech/spell which has an Element. A small circle will 
appear in the battle field based on the tech's/spell's Fonim.
There are six elements(aka Fonims/Fonons) in this game:

First Fonim(Dark)   - Purple
Second Fonim(Earth) - Yellow
Third Fonim(Wind)   - Green
Fourth Fonim(Water) - Blue
Fifth Fonim(Fire)   - Red
Sixth Fonim(Light)  - White

When creating a FoF:
Elemental Techs creates a 25% Complete FoF.
Chuukyuu[Mid] Spells creates a 50% Complete FoF.
Joukyuu[High] Spells creates a 100% Complete FoF.

++++++++++++++++
Completing a FoF
++++++++++++++++
Once you create a FoF in the battle field and is not completed, you need to
use techs/spells of the same element to complete the field. Once the FoF is 
complete, use a tech/spell which is compatible to the FoF you have created.

+++++++++++++
Using the FoF
+++++++++++++
Techs:
When using techs, the character must be touching the FoF to activate FoF
Change Techs. These upgraded moves can also activate Hiougi techs even if 
the FoF Change Tech is a Tokugi or a Ougi.

Spells:
FoF Change Spells can be activated in 3 different methods:
1) Touch the Complete FoF and cast the correct spell to absorb the FoF.
2) Create a specific FoF beside the character who is casting halfway.
3) Manually move the spell into the FoF with the Left Analog Stick when your 
   character is casting. 

Using the 1st method lets you keep the FoF Change Spell by holding the spell
assigned to your tech button. The Spell Keep AD Skill does not keep FoF Spells.

++++++++++++
Inactive FoF
++++++++++++
If you did not complete nor use a complete FoF within 3 seconds, that FoF is 
considered inactive and will disappear from the battle field. However, that
FoF is kept and can be brought back. Using this feature, it is possible to
keep all 6 FoFs in the battlefield.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Bringing back an Inactive FoF
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
To bring back a FoF, use a tech/spell which has the same element as that FoF 
to either complete it or bring it back. 

+++++++++++++++
Replacing a FoF
+++++++++++++++
If an Elemental Tech or Spell is performed on top of a FoF and is not 
compatible with it, the Tech/Spell will create a FoF based on their element 
and will replace the previous FoF, making it inactive.

+++++++++
FoF Chart
+++++++++
Each tech/spell can only link to certain FoFs. To know which FoF is compatible
to which tech/spell, below is the FoF Compability Chart:

Wind  --> Light <-- Fire
Earth --> Dark  <-- Water

Using this chart, a tech that requires a Wind FoF(Eg: Luke's Shuusou Raizan) 
can also use a Light FoF to activate it.

**************
iii) AD Skills
**************
AD Skills is a new feature which gives a character extra abilities such as 
Back Step, Overlimits, Free Run, etc. To get most of these AD Skills, the 
character must equip a Capacity Core(C.Core). C.Core is an equipment which 
gives bonus stats as the character LVLs up. The bonus stats which the C.Core 
gives are:

- Physical Attack(P.ATK)
- Physical Defense(P.DEF)
- Fonic Attack(F.ATK)
- Fonic Defense(F.DEF)
- Agility(AGL)
- Enhancement(ENH)

As the bonus number increases, the character will learn new AD Skills based on
the requirements (eg: Efficient requires Physical Attack +30). The bonus stats
given by the C.Core are permanent and cannot be removed. 

Here is the required Bonus Stats to obtain all the AD Skills:

Physical Attack  - 200
Physical Defense - 70
Fonic Attack     - 70
Fonic Defense    - 60
Agility          - 90
Enhancement      - 90

iii) Combos
***********

++++++++++
Tech Links
++++++++++
Similar to the previous Tales Games, you can only link Tokugi techs to Ougi 
techs(including FoF Change Techs) when creating a tech combo. Most Hiougi 
techs can be activated if you hit an enemy with a Ougi or a FoF Change Tech
during Overlimits.

Tokugi->Ougi
Tokugi->Ougi->Hiougi
Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)*
Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)->Hiougi*
Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Ougi)
Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Ougi)->Hiougi
Tokugi->Ougi->FoF Change Tech(Ougi)*
Tokugi->Ougi->FoF Change Tech(Ougi)->Hiougi*
Ougi->Hiougi
Ougi->FoF Change Tech(Ougi)*
Ougi->FoF Change Tech(Ougi)->Hiougi*
FoF Change(Tokugi/Ougi)->Hiougi

AD Skills such as Canceller and Turnless breaks the Tech Link which is similar
to Tales of Symphonia.

With Canceller and Turnless AD Skill:
Tokugi->Tokugi
Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)
Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)->Hiougi
Tokugi->Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)*
Tokugi->Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)->Hiougi*
Tokugi->Tokugi->Ougi
Tokugi->Tokugi->Ougi->Hiougi
Tokugi->Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Ougi)
Tokugi->Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Ougi)->Hiougi
Tokugi->Tokugi->Ougi->FoF Change Tech(Ougi)*
Tokugi->Tokugi->Ougi->FoF Change Tech(Ougi)->Hiougi*
Tokugi->Ougi->Tokugi
Tokugi->Ougi->Tokugi->Hiougi
Tokugi->Ougi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)
Tokugi->Ougi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)->Hiougi
Tokugi->Ougi->Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)*
Tokugi->Ougi->Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)->Hiougi*
Ougi->Tokugi
Ougi->Tokugi->Hiougi
Ougi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)
Ougi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)->Hiougi
Ougi->Tokugi->Tokugi
Ougi->Tokugi->Tokugi->Hiougi
Ougi->Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)
Ougi->Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)->Hiougi
Ougi->Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)*
Ougi->Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)->Hiougi*
Ougi->Tokugi->Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)*
Ougi->Tokugi->Tokugi->FoF Change Tech(Tokugi)->Hiougi*

With both Canceller and Turnless AD Skills, you can use the same Tokugi tech 
if you do a Tokugi->Ougi->Tokugi Chain.

Eg: Houshuu Kyaku->Garen Houshuu Gaku->Houshuu Kyaku

Tech Links marked with an asterisk(*) beside it means that you must use the 
same tech to perform them.

Eg: Tenrai Sou{Wind/Light FoF}->Raijin Senpuu Sou
    Senkou Tsuijin Ga{Wind/Light FoF}->Shouha Rekkou Sen
    Kuuha Zeppuu Geki->Souga Zan{Wind/Light FoF}->Shuusou 
    Raizan
 

++++++++++++++++++
Using the same FoF
++++++++++++++++++
It is possible to activate more than one FoF Change Tech/Spell if two or more 
characters use a compatible tech/spell on the same FoF. For eg: Luke and Guy 
used Souga Zan and Shinkuu Hazan inside a Wind FoF, changing to Shuusou Raizan
and Ryuusou Senkuu Ha.


+++++++++++++++++
High Agility Stat
+++++++++++++++++
Increasing a character's Agility Stat will increase his/her overall speed, 
making them move fast enough to do another tech combo on a staggered enemy. If
timed correctly, you can repeat the tech combo as long as the enemy does not 
break out of the combo. Cobalt Chamber's helps increase staggers for techs 
that lifts up the enemy(eg: Souga Zan, Sen Shouha, Dankuu Ken).


++++++++++++++++++
Knockdown Juggling
++++++++++++++++++
An enemy who receives a Knockdown Tech/Spell can still be attacked as long as
it doesn't hit the ground. This technique only works against cornered enemies.

Eg: Fuujin Kousen Shou->Raijin Senpuu Sou
    Ressen Sougeki Ha->Majin Ken


+++++++++++++++++++++
Off-the-Ground Hiougi
+++++++++++++++++++++
An enemy who is knockdowned and is still lying on the ground can be attacked 
with a Hiougi tech as long as Luke/Guy/Anise' Ougi techs connect with the 
enemy.


++++++++++
Spell Keep
++++++++++
Method 1:
With the Spell Keep AD Skill, keep a complete spell until an enemy disrupts 
you. Once you keep the spell, use the same spell to cast it instantly. To do 
this method, both Grace and Glory AD Skills must be turned off. If you cast
a different spell, the spell you kept will reset itself.

Eg: Complete Bloody Howling Incantation->Enemy Disrupt->Bloody Howling(Spell
    Keep).

Method 2:
If you finish the incantation of a spell but did not cast it, activate 
Overlimits to keep the spell. Tear and Jade are unable to keep spells which
activates their respective Hiougi unless the AD Skill "Special" is turned off.

Eg: Complete Éclair Larme Incantation->Overlimits->Éclair Larme(Spell Keep).

FoF Change Spells works in both methods if your character is standing on top 
of the correct FoF.

Eg: Bloody Howling(Method 1 or 2)->Stand inside Water/Dark FoF->Maelstrom


+++++++++++++++++
Overlimits Cancel
+++++++++++++++++
It is possible to cancel any animation by going into Overlimits Mode. There 
are some techs which will continue to attack the enemy when performing 
Overlimits Cancel such as Searing Sorrow and Ryuusou Senkuu Ha.

Using the Spell Keep Trick, you can cancel into Overlimits the moment you cast
the spell you have kept. Using this method, you can cast a Spell after doing 
a Tech Combo and use the Overlimits Cancel to erase the casting animation.

Eg: Thunder Blade(Spell Keep)->O.L. Cancel->Sen Shouha->Shouha Rekkou Sen
    Sousen Ga->Garyuu Geki->Bloody Howling(Spell Keep)->O.L. Cancel->Ryuubu
    Houbappa


+++++++++++++++++++++++++
Off-the-Ground Overlimits
+++++++++++++++++++++++++
You can knock up an knockdowned enemy using Overlimits. Using Spell Keep and
Overlimits Cancel, you can continue to juggle the enemy.

Eg: Rentou Raikou Dan->Spark Web(Spell Keep)->O.L. Cancel->X-Buster


++++++++++++
Spell Cancel
++++++++++++
Spell Cancel enables a character to remove the recovery time from techs by 
casting a spell and pressing the Guard Button to cancel it, letting you attack
the enemy again. Luke and Guy are the only characters who cannot do this trick.

Eg: Basic Attack X4->Tenrai Sou(Spell Cancel)->*Repeat* 


+++++++++++++
Speed Casting
+++++++++++++
With a Misty Symbol, Spell Voltage AD Skill, Spell End AD Skill and Tear's
Spell Enhance(+Carmine Chamber), you can actually create combos by casting 
spells only. FoF Change Spells can also be used if you have the correct FoF.

Eg: Bloody Howling(Spell Voltage)->Maelstrom.


+++++++++++++++++
FoF Cancel: Basic
+++++++++++++++++
FoF Cancel is a trick where you can link to any tech regardless of the Tech
Link System. This is due to the FoF which the tech you were using can convert 
into a FoF Change Tech.

As mentioned in the Tech Links Section, Tech Links marked with an Asterisk(*) 
means you must use the same tech. However, if a complete FoF is created during
the tech's animation and is compatible with it, you can perform another tech
or Tech Link.

Eg: Sen Shouha->Houshuu Kyaku->Senkou Tsuijin Ga{Wind/Light FoF}->Majin Ken
    Kogetsu Sen->Koga Hazan->Zeppa Juuji Shou{Water/Dark FoF}->Shishi Senkou 

This means FoF Cancel enables any tech to link each other if a "Complete" FoF 
is created and is compatible with the tech that is being used halfway.


++++++++++++++++++++++++
FoF Cancel: Intermediate
++++++++++++++++++++++++
Based on the Tech Links, you can perform the following example. This example 
shows that using a tech which is compatible with the FoF that the previous 
tech has created will convert it into a FoF Change Tech.

Eg: Houshuu Kyaku->Ganzan Messai Jin->Resshin Tenshou
*Note* To perform this tech combo, you either have:
       1)equipped Sen Shouha with a Sunlight Chamber or
       2)have an Complete Earth FoF which is inactive.

However, if this tech combo is performed on top of a different complete FoF 
which has not yet disappeared and is not compatible with Sen Shouha, Ganzan
Messai Jin will replace that FoF but Sen Shouha does not change into Resshin 
Tenshou.

This means if you replace a Complete FoF with another Complete FoF using a 
Elemental Tech, the following tech that is compatible with the new FoF will not
convert into a FoF Change Tech as long as the replaced FoF is not compatible.

Eg: Maou Zetsuen Kou{Wind FoF}->Houshuu Kyaku->Zanma Hiei Zan.


+++++++++++++++++++
FoF Cancel: Advance
+++++++++++++++++++
Using both methods in the Basic and Intemediate sections, you can actually
combine two or three different Tech Links in one string of Tech Combos.

Eg: Majin Ken->Shunjin Ken->Shugo Houjin+Appears Aqua->Senkou Tsuijin Ga->
    Zan'ei Rekkou Shi->Houshuu Kyaku->Souga Zan

This tech combo utilise both methods as the Appears Aqua spell prevents Senkou
Tsuijin Ga from changing and because of the Light FoF which Shugo Houjin 
created is under Luke while performing Senkou Tsuijin Ga, Zan'ei Rekkou Shi 
can be linked.

Another example which is can be considered as an infinite combo:

Eg: Tenrai Sou->Tenshou Tsuiga Sou+Maou Zetsuen Kou->*Repeat*


+++++++++++
Tech Combos
+++++++++++
Below are some tech combos for each character from basic to advance. Some of 
the combos listed here either requires:
-Specific AD Skills.
-High Agility Stat.
-A Cornered/Knockdowned Enemy.
-Specific FoF/FS Chambers(mostly Cobalt and Sunlight)
-Does not work on certain enemies due to their size/weight.

5)Tips & Tricks
###############
---------
Fast Gald
---------
There are two ways to get lots of Gald:

In Ketelburg, the waitress minigame can rake up to 9200 Gald per game as
long as you complete all 5 rounds perfectly. It's a slow process, but you can 
get a lot of Gald if you spend at least an hour or so. This is very useful 
early in the game where equipment is still expensive.

The other way is using the Town Link Point feature. Open up the Labyrinth 
Minigame in Kethelburg and complete the Warehouse Minigame in Kethelburg Port
to increase the TLP for Kethel/Kethel to 1800(Please refer to the Extras 
Guide). Doing this will make the Utensil Weapons sell at 45000 Gald in 
Kethelburg after clearing Mount Roneal.

Equip Jade's Koutei no Shinyuu[Emperor's Best Friend] and buy all the Utensil 
Weapons(Table Knife, Spoon, Fork) in Kethelburg for 43650 Gald each. After 
that, go to Angave and equip Anise's Neko Neko Koneko[Cat Cat Kitty Cat] title 
to sell the Weapons for 50000 Gald each.

The amount of Gald you get from this method:
(50000 X 48) - (43650 X 48) = 304800 Gald

If you increase the Item Capacity to 20 in the Grade Shop, the total profit is
381000 Gald.

----------
Fast Grade
----------
Equip the hardest difficulty available and fight the enemies in Cheagle
Woods. With the grade multiplier from the difficulty and defeating the 
enemy with Full HP/TP in less than 10 seconds, you will get a lot of grades by
spending at least an hour in that dungeon.
