| (SSF01)  Skills and Spells: An Explaination |
'---------------------------------------------'

The Dragon Quest series has always been very simple, and Dragon Quest IX is no
different. In a good way.

Spells work the same as in every other Dragon Quest game, except with a bit of
a small difference. In Dragon Quest VII, you were able to retain all spells and
abilities learned for every class you used. In this game, spells and skills are
two seperate menus, so while everything you learn in the skill menu is
retained, anything learned in the spell menu disappears when you change class.
Of course, the spells you learn come back when you use the same class again.

So say you have a level 5 Cleric and you learned the skills Heal and Buff
(just an example). Then you switch over to a Mage because you want to learn
some offensive spells too. However, you don't get to keep Heal and Buff as a
Mage, as those are Cleric spells only. So you get to level 10 as a Mage and
learn all kinds of spells. You decide to switch back to a Cleric. All those
Mage spells are now gone but the skills you learned by level 5 as a Cleric
(Heal and Buff) are back again! That's how the spell system works in this game.

As I've said, however, Skills are retained and only generally unusable when
the skills are weapon specific (Example, you can't use Dragon Slash without
equipping a sword first).

The skill system from Dragon Quest VIII returns yet again, although this time
it's different. In Dragon Quest VIII, the skill trees were specific to each
character. Since this game uses man made parties, the skill trees this time are
specific to class. For example, Soldiers have the skill trees Sword, Spear,
Knife, Shield, and Bravery while Thieves have Knife, Sword, Claw, Fisticuffs
and Thievery.

What's this? Some skill trees are shared between classes? Why yes, and you
should be greatful for that.

Soldiers and Thieves both share the Sword and Knife skill tree. So that means,
any points put into Sword or Knife as a Soldier are kept if you switch over to
Thief! It makes things much easier to manage, I would think.

Of course that means you don't have to relearn skills all over again. And when
you master those skill trees, you can use all of those skills in other classes
too, even if that class can't use those skills! Ain't that awesome!?

I'm pretty sure I've explained all the basics. If you have any questions, just
contact me using my contact information at the top of this document.

.---------------------------------.
| (SSF02) Classes and Skill Trees |
'---------------------------------'

Yep! Dragon Quest IX features classes once again! And each class have five
different skill trees; three weapon trees, either shield or fisticuffs and a
class specific tree.

Here are the six basic classes and their skill trees:

.-------------------------------------------------------------------------.
| Soldier | Cleric    | Mage   | Monk          | Theif      | Entertainer |
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Sword   | Spear     | Wand   | Claw          | Knife      | Sword       |
| Spear   | Wand      | Knife  | Bo Staff      | Sword      | Whip        |
| Knife   | Bo Staff  | Whip   | Fan           | Claw       | Fan         |
| Shield  | Shield    | Shield | Fisticuffs    | Fisticuffs | Shield      | 
| Bravery | Faith     | Magick | Battle Spirit | Thievery   | Acrobatics  |
'-------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Now, I said basic classes. That means that there's also advanced classes. To
get these classes you have to do quests to unlock them. I'm currently not sure
what those quests are or how to unlock them, but when I do I'll make sure to
put that in this FAQ.

Anyway, here are the six advanced classes and their skill trees.

.--------------------------------------------------------------------------.
| B.Master   | Paladin     | M.Knight | Ranger     | Sage      | Superstar |
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Sword      | Spear       | Bow      | Bow        | Boomerang | Whip      |
| Axe        | Club        | Sword    | Boomerang  | Bow       | Fan       |
| Club       | Wand        | Wand     | Axe        | Wand      | Boomerang |
| Fisticuffs | Shield      | Shield   | Fisticuffs | Shield    | Shield    |
| War Scar   | Benevolence | Energy   | Survival   | Wisdom    | Aura      |
'--------------------------------------------------------------------------'

The B in B.Master means Battle, so Battlemaster and the M in M.Knight means
Magic; Magic Knight. I had to do it that way to keep this list nice and neat
and in one line. It shouldn't be too confusing, anyway.

Also, the order of the skill trees should be in the same order as they appear
in the game, when choosing a class for a character you create or changing your
class at Dharma.

.----------------------------.
| (SSF03) Example Skill Tree |
'----------------------------'

Here's an example of how the skill tree will look like and its funcions:

Japanese
 Symbol
for Tree     Tree Name
  |              |
.--------------------------.
| 剣 | (STLSW) SWORD SKILLS \
|-------------------------------------------------.
| Pts | Skill/Effect     | MP | Short Description  \
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------.
|   3 | Dragon Slash     |  0 | 1.5x damage against Dragon monsters.         \
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|  42 | Attack + 20      | -- | Only when equipped with a sword.              |
'-----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
   |           |            |                     |
 Points    Skill/Effect   MP Cost            Short description
 Needed       Name       (if any)          of what the skill does
 
Also, at the end of each tree, you'll see one that doesn't cost any points:

.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
| --- | Giga Breaker     | 30 | Completely destroys one group of enemies.     |
'-----------------------------------------------------------------------------'

These are the Hidden Skills, aquired by doing a certain quest in the game.
There's one for each tree.

.---------------------.
| (SSF04) Skill Trees |
'---------------------'

Here we are... this is the beefiest part of the FAQ (thus far) and probably the
most important part of it. Make sure to think things through when putting in
skill points into certain trees, and remember that some trees are shared with
different classes.

All skill trees are organized in a nice, easy-to-read table. This thing took a
lot of work, so please appreciate it!

Some skills may not be accurately translated. Translating from Japanese to
English is no easy task so please bare with me.

Miracle Moon remains untranslated because the site I used had no information on
it...

Also, there's bound to be a mistake or two in here, so please contact me at
vinchenz(at)gmail(dot)com to send me corrections of my mistakes. You can also
try to contact me on the message boards, seeing as I lurk there pretty often.

now, though, it can be used as a handy comparison between the Japanese name of
the skill with the English name I gave the skill. Later on, I'll add spells in
