Hiya im wondering if choosing Shield first and Sacrifice staff. Will let me gain Sword
and Shield abilities faster?. like this:

Vortex
AP Cost: 1
Learned (Sword): Level 12
Learned (Staff): Level 57
Learned (Shield): Level 45
Learned (Other): - - -
Description: Close the distance to nearby enemies with this powerful spinning attack.

learned at sword 12 and shield 45, but if i choose to keep both shield and sword, does it mean
il get it at 12? or will it be at 45 for having choosing shield first?

It's the one you actually pick which determines at what levels you get the abilities. The one you don't give up doesn't really affect anything.

Yep the one you sacrifice just changes your stats a bit, here is a chart.

Choose/Sacrifice/Strength/Defense/AP/MP

Sword Shield 6 1 3 2
Sword Staff 6 2 1 2
Shield Sword 4 4 3 2
Shield Staff 5 4 1 2
Staff Sword 3 3 3 3
Staff shield 5 1 3 3

Sacrifice staff is you choose shield is for the best.

I've got a quote that embodies you perfectly, but it's seventy-three posts long, has a few massive flowcharts, and lots of Xion-KMA to Me

Also, remember that this is Final Mix. The order abilities are learned is different here: Vortex is now gotten at level 57 with the Sword, 78 with the Shield, and 84 with the Staff.

You don't keep two things. You keep one and give up one.
