    Hello, I'm back with my third guide ever counting my FAQ
    on my banned account. This FAQ is about skills. 
    
    This FAQ will tell you about the skill tree and the skill
    points you get when you level up. I will also share the
    classes with you of course. If there were no classes, then
    why would the game need a skill tree? Ok, so, this FAQ will
    only be seen here, at GameFAQs or any other site you have 
    posted on. DO NOT do it for financial gains or I will hunt
    you down and stuff my foot up your ass.
    
    
    Send me mail:
    Send me comments, fanmail, or anything related to this FAQ to:
    
    justin.moey@gmail.com
    
    If you are going to send me mail, put "DQIX skill guide" as the
    title so I know you are sending me stuff related to this. If
    you are sending me something you think is useful, please tell
    me how you would like to be referred as.

    [1] Author's note
    --------------------
    
    Hello once again, this FAQ, as you people can tell is 
    about classes, skill points and the skill tree/list.
    And not a walkthrough. I suck at writing this but whatever.
    
    Let me tell you something about myself, I write these FAQs
    mainly to get karma, increase my level and talk trash at
    the RE3 PSX board with my buddies. So GameFAQs, please up
    my account's level. Thx.

    [3] Game introduction
    ------------------------
    
    Once again, the best game ever create by Nintendo and
    Level 5. I hope you know the storyline, completed it,
    and blah blah blah, so on and so forth.
    
    I really wonder how Nintendo creates such good games.
    Okay, enough about that, please read my FAQ.

    [4] Classes
    --------------
    
    Classes, the "roles" you play in the game. There are a
    total of 12 classes that you can get. Only 6 can be used
    at the start, but as you progress further into the game
    and complete certain quests, you can unlock the other 6
    "advanced" classes.
    
    I will only give the weapon skill sets, special skill,
    Coup de Grace and Co-op de Grace here. No notes and
    suggestions.

    Ok, that's done. *whew*
    
    It might not seem like it but it takes a while to type that all
    down especially if you're slow like me.
    
    
    
    -------------------
    [5] Skill points
    -------------------
    
    Without skill points, you cannot get skills, obviously. The only
    way to get skill points in this game is to level up. But you only
    start getting them at level 5. The amount you get increases each
    time then starts to get less when you hit level 40+ .
    
    Anywho, the chart is here.

         96                         2                           196

         99                         2                           200 
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    You need 2600 skill points to master everything. Weapons and
    special skills. Since you get a total of 200 points every
    time you hit level 99 times 12 classes equals to 2400 points
    only. So you have to revocate at least once in any class and
    get to level 99 again.
    
    
    
    -----------------
    [6] Skill list
    -----------------
    
    Finally, the skill list. Below I will show you the list of 
    skills in each set. And how much skill points you need to
    achieve.
    
    *NOTE*
    You only need to get to a number of skill points to get that
    certain skill. Just like the mini-medals.

    Well, that's pretty much entire FAQ. Sure took me a long
    time to finish. Basically 72 hours. Anyway, thanks to
    Nintendo for making such a wonderful game. Thanks to
    Level 5 for helping Nintendo create this wonderful game
    and for creating the Professor Layton series as well.
    And finally, thanks to my parents for not disturbing me
    while I was creating this FAQ.
    
    I hope you have benefittef from my FAQ, and happy Dragon
    Questing!
    
    Oh yeah, before I forget, send me anything else useful
    so I can touch up my guide.  :p
    
    Credits to some guy who suggested I put descriptions for
    each skill. (I can't remember who he is for I deleted
    his e-mail before I did it)
