==================
I. Introduction
==================

Rondo of Swords/Itsuwari no Rondo is a turn-based strategy RPG, copyrighted and
developed by Success/Fun Unit, and is licensed to and published by Atlus
U.S.A. Inc.

This guide was written by me, Kikuichimonjii at GameFAQs. This is my second
guide, and the second for Rondo of Swords. I'm still new to the guide writing
business, so if you see any mistakes, let me know via email or through the
boards at GameFAQs. If you have any questions, suggestions, or comments, you
can contact me the same way.

This guide was written to provide a more detailed description of skills in
Rondo of Swords, and to help skill planning.


========================
II. Basics of Skills
========================

When a character in Rondo of Swords reaches 100 EXP, they will level up,
gaining an increase in some stats and 2 skill points. While stats are not
customizable, skills are, and how well you do in Rondo of Swords is dependent
on how you choose to spend your skill points. Though you receive 2 skill points
per level up, it does not mean that you can level up 2 skills. Skills have
five levels, each costing more skill points to upgrade than the last. Costs are
the same for all skills:

Level 1: 1 point
Level 2: 2 points
Level 3: 4 points
Level 4: 6 points
Level MAX: 8 points

As you can see, to max out a skill, you will need 21 skill points in total.
That's right, it takes ten and a half levels just to max out one skill. Don't
worry though, only a handful of skills are worth getting anyway, the rest are
useless.

To manage your skills, you must first have access to the pre-battle preparation
screen, which is available starting from chapter 2. Select formation, highlight
a character, press X, and choose Skills. The first option will let you spend
skill points. The second option will let you set skills which you have learned.
Remember: Putting points into a skill does nothing until you set it! To set a
skill, choose "Set Skills" and choose the skills you want with the A button.
When you're done, press X. If you press B, set or removed skills will not be
saved. Also keep in mind that only a maximum of 12 skills can be set at any
time.

It should be noted that some characters come with skills points when recruited,
and some already have some skills. In a New Game+, any character you recruited
in a previous playthrough will come with 99 skills points right off the bat,
and have all their default class skills available. Serdic will have all the
skills from his second class as well as first class. However, their skills will
be reset to 0, so no, you can't just play through lots of times to max out all
skills. :P

Some skills are active skills, that is, you must select it in battle to use it.
To do this, select a character on the field, and choose either "Skill" or
"Magic" to use them.

I have listed skills in the following format:

#. Name of skill
Description
Characters that can learn the skill*
Comments

It will not be in alphabetical order. The game has ordered skills by type and I
will order them the same way they would be if it were shown in the game. There 
are around 180 different skills programmed into Rondo of Swords, but most are
unavailable to your characters and are listed for the sake of completion.

*Character name and level at which the skill is learnt. Some skills are only
learnt after class promotion. In addition, some characters come pre-promoted,
such as Alicia and Naji, but I will be referring to their final class as "third
class" even though they technically only have two classes. Also, Serdic is a
special case. Because his promotion is forced by the plot, it is actually
possible to promote at a low level if you've been too lazy to level him up.
Because of this, Serdic's first class skills are also in both his second class
skill lists, to prevent any missed skills.

One last thing to note: The earliest you can promote a character is at levels
15 and 30 for their second and third classes, respectively. You will NOT lose
any skills if you choose to promote later than at those levels.


======================

15, Rukia LV 12, Serdic (Arch Paladin, Cold Monarch) LV 15

-Increases accuracy by ?%*Skill LV. Can't really find out how much, since
accuracy is a hidden value.


------------
8. Foresight
------------
Description: Increases agility

Learned by: Serdic LV 1, Alberich LV 15, Alicia LV 15, Shino LV 18, Cotton LV
12, Aegil (second class) LV 30, Ansom (second class) LV 18, Owl (third class)

Rukia LV 15, Serdic (Cold Monarch) LV 24, Ansom (second class) Lv 21

-Increases critical hit chance by ?%*Skill LV.


---------------
10. Retaliation
---------------
Description: Increases chances of a counter-attack

Learned by: Serdic LV 18, Owl LV 15, Alicia LV 24, Alhambra LV 12, Serdic (Arch
Paladin, Cold Monarch) LV 8, Sasha (second class) LV 18, Margus (second class)
LV 27, Rukia (second clasS) LV 27

---------------
11. Lion Strike
---------------
Description: Increases OB gauge

Learned by: Alberich LV 18, Izuna LV 21, Serdic (Arch Paladin) LV 30, Kay
(third class) LV 30, Sasha (third class) LV 30, Alicia (third class) LV 30,
Naji (third class) LV 42

-Not too sure what this skill does. Apparently it's supposed to increase OB
gains, but I need this confirmed.


---------------
12. Valor Bonds

class) LV 30, Kay (second class) LV 18, Selmer (third class) LV 30, Simon
(third class) LV 30

-A character with this skill equipped will receive a increased bonuses from
the support skills such as Will of War or Defender. Bonus given is 10%*Skill
LV. For example:

Level MAX Will of War heals 25% of HP of a unit which passes through the
character. With level MAX Valor Bonds (50% bonus), the HP healed is now 25*1.5
rounded down, equalling 37%. Just so we're clear, IT IS NOT 25%+50%=75%! The %
refers to the percentage of the original number.


-----------
13. War Cry
-----------
Description: Increases support benefits given to allies

Learned by: None

-Unobtainable skill. Just an interesting note: If you somehow have both Valor
Bonds and War Cry on a character, these two skills will stack, meaning it is
possible to have support bonuses doubled.

-----------
14. Tactics
-----------
Description: Increases effect of the terrain

Learned by: None

-Unobtainable skill.


---------------
15. White Light
---------------
Description: Increases chances of recovering from negative effects

Learned by: Marie LV 6, Kay LV 6, Yumiluna LV 1, Simon LV 1, Galahad LV 1,
Shino LV 24, Aegil (second class) LV 24, Margus (second class) LV 15

-Not sure about this skill. My guess on this skill? Random chance of healing
a negative status effect before the effect passes. Testing needed.

----------------
16. Angelic Word
----------------
Description: Lowers chances of receiving status ailments

Learned by: Elmer LV 12, Izuna LV 24, Serdic (Arch Paladin, Cold Monarch) LV 21
, Aegil (third class) LV 33, Sasha (second class) LV 15, Yumiluna (third class)
LV 33, Simon (third class) LV 33, Galahad (third class) LV 30

-Adds a resistance to negative status effects by ?%*Skill LV (Testing needed).


---------------

---------------
Description: Raises the range of arrow attacks

Learned by: Naji LV 24, Ansom (third class) LV 36

-Attacking range of archers such as Ansom and Naji is increased.

Level  Range
1       +1

----------------
18. Karma Strike
----------------
Description: Raises counter-attack damage

Learned by: Serdic LV 6, Alicia LV 21, Owl (second class) LV 15, Sasha (third
class) LV 33, Alhambra (second class) LV 18

-Increases counter-attack damage by ?%*Skill LV.


===========
IV. ZOC
===========

These are skills related to Zone of Control, better known as ZOC. ZOC prevents
enemy units from passing through the unit. ZOC is a very important skill, so
much that there is even a section in the tutorial explaining ZOC. Unfortunately
, ZOC is only learned by three playable characters, Serdic, Margus, and Aegil,
and Serdic only learns ZOC in Path B. Furthermore, ZOC is useless on Aegil
because of her poor HP and terrible DEF stats. Bottom line: Margus is the only
viable user of ZOC if you choose path A first.


-------
19. ZOC
-------
Description: Prevents enemies from passing through the unit

Learned by: Margus LV 9, Serdic (Cold Monarch) LV 27, Aegil (third class) LV 30

-Does exactly what the description says. As far as I know, ZOC works 100% at
any level, and is only increased to counter Null ZOC. When a character with ZOC
and a character with Null ZOC clash, ZOC must be a higher level than Null ZOC
for it to work. For example, ZOC level 4 wins against Null ZOC level 3 and
below, but Null ZOC level MAX bypasses all level of ZOC. When a unit is blocked
by ZOC, they pushed to a specific square regardless of their original path.
This is the pattern followed if squares are occupied:


          |13|
       |14|5 |15|
    |16|6 |1 |7 |17|
 |18|8 |2 |X |3 |9 |19|
    |20|10|4 |11|21|
       |22|12|23|
          |24|

X is the tile occupied by the unit with ZOC. The numbers indicate the order of
squares in which a unit will be deflected to, for example, if squares 1 and 2
are occupied, then the unit will be deflected to the square directly east of
the unit.

Sometimes a unit with ZOC might counter-attack. In this situation, the ZOC
pattern does not apply, the unit attacking will be deflected to the closest
empty square on their original path.

ZOC can activate even when the unit successfully dodges.


------------
20. ZOC Gift
------------
Description: Prevents enemies from passing through an ally unit

Learned by: None

-Unobtainable skill.


------------
21. Null ZOC
------------
Description: May ignore enemy's ZOC

Learned by: Alberich LV 12, Sasha LV 9, Cotton LV 18, Serdic (Arch Paladin) LV
24, Igraine (third class) LV 36, Kay (third class) LV 33, Margus (second class)
LV 15, Rukia (third class) LV 30

-Allows the unit to sometimes pass through a character with ZOC. An equal level
or higher level of Null ZOC than the level of ZOC is needed to bypass ZOC.



=====================================
V. Stat Boosting (with penalties)

4%*Skill LV (-20% at level MAX).


------------
26. Nobility

Learned by: None

-Unobtainable skill. For some reason, they're calling agility SPEED here.


--------
27. Rook
--------

Learned by: Margus LV 1, Rukia LV 9, Serdic (Arch Paladin) LV 27, Alicia (third
class) LV 33, Alhambra (second class) LV 24

-Unobtainable skill.


-------------
30. Obstinacy

level MAX).


-----------
33. Berserk
-----------
Description: Increases critical hit chances and lowers accuracy

Learned by: Shino LV 12, Ansom (third class) LV 39, Owl (third class) LV 36

-A surprisingly small number of characters can learn this skill. Increases
critical hit %, and decreases accuracy.


---------------
34. Wisdom Lock

class) LV 30, Selmer (third class) LV 33, Arios (third class) LV 33, Yumiluna
(third class) LV 36, Elmer (second class) LV 18

-Increases bonus MAG by 5%*Skill LV (+25% at level MAX), decreases DEF by
4%*Skill LV (-20% at level MAX) also decreases agility. The game refers to
agility as SPEED yet again here. Just another strange inconsistency...


----------------

Description: Increases counter-attack chances and lowers DEF

Learned by: Owl (third class) LV 42, Sasha (second class) LV 24, Alicia (third
class) LV 39

-Increases counter-attack %, and decreases DEF by 5%*Skill LV (-25% at level
MAX).


==============
VI. Support
==============

These are skills that give bonuses to units when they pass through a character.
In order for these to work, the unit with the skill must not have already moved
. In addition, these skills are temporary. Their bonuses end as soon as the
unit stops moving. All of these skills are stackable with each other, though
only one will be shown if a character has more than of these skills equipped.


-------------

36, Alhambra (second class) LV 27

bonus of 3%*Skill LV (+15% at level MAX) until their turn ends.

any character in the game learns a skill at. A unit passing through a character
with this skill equipped receives a critical hit bonus of 2%*Skill LV (+10% at
level MAX) until their turn ends.

Learned by: Arios LV 9, Yumiluna LV 18, Galahad LV 12, Aegil (second class) LV
18, Igraine (third class) LV 33, Kay (third class) LV 39, Elmer (second class)
LV 24

-Reduces damage from magic by 4%*Skill LV (-20% at level MAX). (Confirmation

========================
X. Additional Effects
========================

These skills add certain effects to your attacks. They include draining HP,
cutting MP, and inflicting status effects. All these skills are stackable,
however, a unit can only have one status effect at a time. If a unit has
multiple status inflicting skills, certain ones take priority over other ones.
A rough order, from high priority to low priority:

Clumsy
Leak
Dazed
Sap
Glass
Tired
Crazed
Scared
Stuck
Timid

For example, if Sasha has First Strike (Timid) and Befuddle (Dazed) set, and
they both activate, the enemy unit will end up with Dazed status because Dazed
is higher on the priority list.

One thing to note: Most of the unobtainable status inflicting skills can be
found on certain enemy units. Always check the info of enemy units so as not to
be caught off guard by a status ailment!

================
XIV. Active
================

These are skills that are used by selecting a unit in battle and choosing the
"Skill" option in the menu. All of these skills are self-targeting only, they
cannot be used on other characters. Furthermore, there is no MP cost to use
these skills.

Certain active skills that last longer than 1 turn can be stacked. Using those
skills twice will double the bonus and penalty. Using those skills three times
will multiply the bonus by 2.5x, but the penalty will be multiplied by 3x.

Using Lion Rage level MAX as an example:
1 use: +50% ATK, -40% DEF
2 use: +100% ATK, -80% DEF
3 use: +125% ATK, -120% DEF

Duration of effect is not extended when stacking these skills, each use of the
skill has its own separate counter.

skill will last until the start of next turn.

Comment: Useless skill? It doesn't seem like there is any way to put the bonus
critical chance to use because no action can be taken after using a skill, and
the fact that the skill's effect doesn't carry on into the next turn. If anyone
knows how this skill can be used, please let me know.

XV. Magic Spells
===================

Pretty self-explanatory. These are the magic spells of this game, they are the
skills with blue boxes in the skill window. In Rondo of Swords, there are
five elements spells come in: Fire, Ice, Thunder, Light, and Dark. However,
one difference from other games with elemental magic is that no units have any
sort of weakness or strengths against any particular element without using a
skill. All spells cost MP to use, and most have different ranges.

For the sake of reducing the length of this guide, I won't show the range of
each spell in a diagram, because many spells share the same range. I will show
the diagrams just once, and refer to them in the skill.

Some spells not only target enemy units, but your own as well. Use these spells
with caution!

172. Manafont
-------------
Description: Gives MP to a selected ally

Learned by: Igraine (third class) LV 30

-Testing needed. This skill *seems* to not work based on percentages, but this
needs to be confirmed. What I do know:

-The user of this skill needs MP to use this skill (obviously)
-If the user of this skill does not have enough to give at a certain skill LV,
the amount of MP given will equal the MP the unit had at the time, minus 1.
-It seems like level 1 heals quite a bit. Tested with a 326MP unit on a 999MP
unit at 499MP, and it drained 325 MP from the first unit.
-On another test, with the same 326MP unit on another unit with 0MP out of 75
MP, it healed all 75MP. I concluded that this skill does not work on
percentages based on this and the above result.
