Welcome to my first guide! This is Skill guide for Ragnarok DS. I originally 
make this for my personal use, but since it might also be useful to everyone, I 
am sharing it here. I hope that it will be some help for people who want to 
know about skill in this game. If you feel that this FAQ need improvement or 
need correction, you can do so on the board of Gamefaqs since I don't have a 
policy of make my e-mail public, nor that I would take a look at e-mail from 
unknown sender anyway. I welcome any suggestions and corrections (no complain, 
please.)

One more thing to add, English is not my first language. If you find English 
error or some Engrish, please forgive me XD.

Also if you want to contact me, don't even try to e-mail me as I said earlier. 
I am most likely not checking my e-mail anyway. You can make a discussion at 
GameFAQs board, though. I should be there almost every day (with a little time 
difference since I live in Japan.) If you don't see me anymore, then that also 
means that by that time I have no more interest to update it anyway. So, this 
should be fare enough :)

             1. What is skill? (wisk)
   +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+



Skill is everything in this game! Skills will help you with your game play in 
lots of ways. You can use it to attack, defense, support, or do some other 
things. There are 2 main types of skills in this game, Active and Passive 
skills.



+=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+
 1.1 Active skills. (wisk0110) 
+=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+



Active skills are skills that require you to trigger or to activate it. 
Usually, you will need to set this kind of skills in a short cut panel to use 
them. There are many ways to use this. This type of skill has rank (for more 
info about rank, check Q&A section [quan])


- Touch Self
Use stylus to touch yourself. Usually, something that will improve your 
character

- Touch Ally
Use stylus to touch Party member, including you. It is mostly for healing 
skills and buffs.

- Touch Location
Use stylus to touch any where. It doesn't matter if there is something over 
there or not, as long as that place is accessible.

- Touch Enemy
Use stylus to touch target enemy.

- Slash Enemy
Use stylus to draw a slashing line at your enemy.

- Tap Target
Use stylus to tap enemy multiple times. You will see an orange bar at your 
character. It is charging time and the skill may active before it is fully 
charge if you tap enough time already.

- Tap Area
Use stylus to tap at any area on the map. Usually, you will be able to tap 2 
times on low level skills and 3 times for higher level skills.

- Line on Ground
Use stylus to draw a line anywhere on the map. It doesn't matter if your line 
is straight or not. You can even scratch your line at some point and you will 
be fine.

- Circle on Ground
Use stylus to draw a circle anywhere on the map. Usually for fast Area skills.

- Charge Direction
Press your stylus at a direction. Release when you want to use it. Usually for 
range attack. 

*There are 3 phase for every Charge skills. When it is white, it means that the 
skill is not yet ready. A small yellow means it can be used, but not quite 
effective yet. A big orange means it is fully charge. You can attack during 
charge if you choose a target before using skill.

- Charge Location
Press your stylus at a location. Release when you want to use it. Note that 
since it says location, it is not an area skill.

- Charge Area
Press your stylus at an area. Release when you want to use it. This is usually 
area skill.

- Charge Self
Press your stylus over your character. You can release if you want to quickly 
use it, or you can wait it to max charge and trigger automatically.

- Max Charge
It is almost the same with Charge Self. Just that it requires that you need to 
fully charge for it to work.

- Charge/Release
Press your stylus over your character. When it is charged and ready to be used, 
drag stylus into a desire direction.

- Special Case (Charge/Select, Touch Trap)
Charge/Select is for Warm Wind skill. After a charge, a choice of element will 
be available for you to choose. Touch Trap is Hunter skills that need to be use 
on traps.



+=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+
 1.2 Passive skills. (wisk0120) 
+=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+



Easy enough, when you have these skills, you don't have to do anything special. 
I will always be activated and there will be no SP cost at all. A lot of 
Passive skills are very useful. These skills will not use up your short cut 
slots. Lastly, they have no rank.

   +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+
          2. Obtaining Final skill (obfs)
   +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+



Final skill is a skill that cannot be obtained by normal means. Normally, no 
matter how much skill point you gained or how much you level, the skill won't 
appear before you. What you need to do to have access to this skill is that you 
will need a "spirit" item for each job. For example, you will need "Shaman 
Spirit" to be able to use Shaman's final skill. 

To obtain Spirits, you will need to have your choice of class as your guild 
member. Note that your story NPC is not included (Rolek and the other can be 
use to obtain Spirits, though.) You will need to do 2 things: Change them to 
Job 2 and make their status Buddy/Friend. If the conditions are met, a new 
quest will be available at the guild and you will get "Spirit" item as your 
reward for clearing it.

Once you got it, you will have it forever since it will be sitting in your key 
item list. So, you will not have to worry about it if you want to change job or 
do limit breaks. However, it doesn't mean you will be able to use it as soon as 
you have the Spirit. You will still have to distribute your point to some other 
skills first. Check skill list section (skli) to see which skill is needed to 
unlock which skill.

In this section, I will only tell you details about the quest to get spirit 
item for each class since requirements fore each quest are the same as 
mentioned above.

This is quite easy quest to finish since it is super close by. In the NW 
section of East Prontera Woods, there should be a lake. You will find a shaman 
that you should be helping there. Monsters will appear and once you defeat it, 
it is as good as done.

              3. Skill list (skli)
   +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+



*NOTE* Usefulness is simply my opinion on the skill. If you don't agree, you 
can just ignore it or discuss about it at gameFAQs board.
*NOTE* Usefulness is to indicate how useful that skill is, from good to bad is 
"S" "A" "B" "C" "D" in that order.
*NOTE* I will not list SP cost for each skill since some skill change it's SP 
cost along with skill level (for example, Higher level Heal will use more SP 
than lower level Heal.) Instead, I will Give rating for SP consumption (low, 
okay, mid, high, super.)



+=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+
 3.1 Knight class (skli0110)
+=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+

 Skill point total: 148

Knight is considered a broken job class. It is among the best job of choice to 
run wild in Mirage tower. You can solo MT very early on, and this class has 
very fast killing time, too. I sometimes go challenge MT even as soon as I 
change to second job. You just need to pierce away everything. Low on health? 
Potions will heal lots more than you would have hoped. Ran out of Potions? Just 
stand there and look at your health filled up! You don't even need to look for 
final skill to be a killing machine and you don't even need that much SP since 
pierce requires so little. Equipments usually have higher defense and range of 
weapon often have more attack point. Well?

to upgrade this? Well, unless you are not planning to use one handed sword, get 
this skill.

This skill increase damage when using two handed sword. You might got confuse 
with picture with two swords. It still means "one two handed sword." Don't try 
or worry about equip two weapons with this job. It won't work.

Skills needed: -

Usefulness: S

A high damage skill that you can get very early on. Since it requires low SP 
and can be use quickly, this skill is a must in most situations. It will get 
even better later since there is a skill that improves this skill, Fatal Blow.

Area explosion is nice. It is a fire elemental attack that can hit a mob very 
fast. Damage is not as good as Bash, but it is a multi-target skill.

Usefulness: C

Chance to stun enemy when using Bash, how nice can it get? Well, in fact, I 
won't give it much credit. Why? Since Enemy tend to die before it even got 
stunned. And most enemy who don't die being hit by Bash, usually is a boss or 
something that immune to stun. While the concept is nice, it don't really have 
its opportunity to shine that much.

Every 5 seconds, this skill will heal you according to this formula:

While it is nice to be able to recover for free, it takes times. The more 
useful part of this skill is the fact that Potions' effect got boost if you ask 
me.

thing in my case. If anyone know what is wrong with this, any info would be 
very helpful. But for now, I don't recommend you to depend on this skill.

It makes your enemy angry. It will attack you like crazy while forget to

with high defense.

Skills needed: Spear Mastery(3)
Minimum skill point to access: 3
SP use: low
Using method: Tap Target
Usefulness: S

This is spear skill. You need to equip spear to use this. It will stab enemies 
to death. I really mean it. It is super deadly and even though it suppose to 
attack only the target chose by you, most of the time near by enemies would get 
hit, too. Damage from this skill is high plus it is multiple attacks and on top 
of that, it consumes only a little SP. This is a real killer.

Your character will dash forward and damage any enemy in your way. Seriously, 
it is not quite worth you SP and charge time. It is not that accurate and if 
you miss, you will waste your SP, time and your mood.

It is range attack which can be used while using spear. You will throw a spear

Using method: Charge/Release
Usefulness: C

A spear skill. This skill will make you thrust your spear towards a target 
direction. Not good in most situation since you will have to charge for some 
time. During that period, you can't move. By that time, enemy might move away 
from you. Since this is a close range skill, you will waste your time for 
nothing in this case.

Usefulness: B

A spear skill. I gave this skill B rank, but it could easily be A rank if used 
properly. Much like Spear Stab, it is charge type skill. But it is an area 
attack and its range is quite good. At max level, your attack will reach about 
2/3 of DS screen.

Slash fast with your two handed sword. It improves your ASPD by a bit. It is

Usefulness: D

Wait for enemy to attack you, and then you can counter with critical hit. The 
hit you receive will also be nullified. Sound good? I don't think it is as nice 
as it sound. Usually, this skill fails since waiting time is the problem. 
Unless you are really getting use to this skill, it is quite hard to catch 
enemy attack. In some case, enemy might use magic on you, which will make this 
whole thing meaning less. On the other hand, even if you can master the use of 
this skill, I find it a lot easier to just smack my enemies in their face even 
before they got a chance to attack me.

Not as fancy as it was back in PC version. Regardless, it is still quite good 
skill. It still deals a huge amount of damage, while it also hurt enemies 
nearby. But unlike PC version, Enemy won't get knocked very far. But considered 
this awesome damaging rate, this skill still rocks.

You need to equip sword to use this skill. I would see this is the upgrade 
version of Magnum Break. It does nice amount of damage, it is area skill, and 
fast to cast. If you are using sword as your weapon, this skill won't let you 
down.

Yea, that's right. I just give C for a final skill and I am sure of it. It can 
attack an area with fire spear. So what? It just takes too much time and effort 
and SP. It is nice to deal successful attack since damage is high, but Bowling 
Bash can also do that.

Remember how Pecopeco Sonic Blow you to death at the very beginning of the

middle of the story line? Remember how Zealotus Sonic Blow you to death when 
you are about to go to fight with final boss? WE WILL BE THE ONE WHO SONIC BLOW 
THEM THIS TIME!!!

Assassin is a class that should be quick, swift, and good at dodging attacks. 
Odd enough, this class doesn't have any skills that improve its ASPD at all. 
However, Katar will grant a double critical rate. You can put points at LUK and 
make a good Critical attacker.

I usually like to steal in RPG game. When I play Final Fantasy series, when 
ever I got a chance, I would steal. Not in this game. Usually you will get what 
that monster usually drops. Most of the times you will get useless items, 
Monsters never drop 4 slots weapons. In this game, money is so easy to find and 
you will not have to worry about it much even if you are using Mammonite a lot. 
Stealing rate is also low and you will usually get worse item.

You will be invisible after using this skill. You will be able to move while 
Stealth when it reach level 5. Seriously, it is so pointless. Most Bosses will 
be able to see you anyway and some of enemies will also be able to see you. 
Enemies that can't see you when you are hiding usually are something you don't 
need to hide from. Once you start to attack, this skill will be canceled out 
and you will be seen once again.

If can use this skill as if you are using Novice Attack skill. It can poison 
Enemy, and so what? Usually Poison does so little damage that I don't even see 
any different. I would rather have a mage do physical attack than waiting 
poison does it damage. This skill itself does okay damage, though. That's why I 
say it is a Novice Attack for Thief.

It cures Poison from your allies. That's it. As I said earlier, poison hardly 
does anything and that includes you, too. The only reason I want to get rid of 
poison status from my character is that I don't like it to have my character to 
turn purple. You will be able to use Green Herb or Green Potion to do this task 
for you. Why not use item when it is so easy to find and cheap?

It is not a bad idea to hit enemy while can not be seen. Or so we thought. It 
sounds brilliant in theories, but it is not that good in reality. About half of 
monsters can see through Stealth, and attack speed from this skill will get you 
know where. If enemy cannot see you, you can use this for a safety kill, but it 
is not the best way.

It makes your attack have Poison element which is suck. No enemy would get more

While I do not really like Poison element, this skill is different. It does 
inflict poison on your target, but this skill's damage is what makes this skill 
worth using. It is a Circle on Ground type so it can be cast pretty fast. Just 
don't use it because it can poison.

I must admit that this Final Skill doesn't impress me that much. It deals large

You dash forward and slash anything in your way. Since sometime a hit and run

This class is considered a supportive class. Or rather, it sucks when it comes 
to attack by their selves. But, I do not mean that this is a bad class. I 
actually think the opposite. In fact, I clear Mirage Tower for the first time 
with this class with a help of another player that did not limit breaks that 
much or even have Spirit item at all.

Even though I said this job is really bad at attacking, it is a god of defense 
and surviving. In fact, if played properly, this job class is invincible. No 
magic or physical attack can actually be strong enough to take a skilled priest 
down. With another attacking class player with you, your team will be 
unstoppable.

I think it is easier to just beat the crap out of enemies even before they get 
a chance to attack me. Plus, it is just these two types of monsters. But since 
those two types of monsters are usually strong, so just cannot overlook this.

that this skill can hurt Undead type monster. So, when facing with zombies or

It will cure a lot of abnormal status except Poison, undead, and curse. 
Seriously, I normally don't think status abnormality in this game actually 
matter much, except Stun, Sleep, Paralyzed, Freeze, and petrified which if you 
got one of these negative status, you will not be able to cast cure on yourself 
anyway. Sleep, Freeze, Paralyzed, and petrified can be cure by getting hit once 
so it is not too bad and Stun does not takes too long to cure. One nice thing 
that it can cure is blind but I think that is about it for this skill.

This is an 'A' skill of "ABK." This skill will improve your AGI stat by a good

increased. Skill level will not affect moving speed, so I usually upgrade this 
skill as soon as I can, but to level 1 only. I would go back to upgrade to 
level 2 or more when I feel that I do not need skill point on something more 
important. But the first skill level is indeed priceless.

This is Yggdrasil leaf in a form of skill. What I want to say is that you can 
use item instead since it is basically the same thing. You should always carry 
Yggdrasil leaf every where you go anyways. So there are no real points to be

I hate this very much. I hate it for its uselessness since this game has only 2

who can do range damage when they should be healing.

This is a weak, HOLY element attack. But since this is one of the very few

have this. Of course, unless you are a combat priest who held +3 4-slotted Hard

Although it is good to have a damage boost passive skill, it is not necessarily 
always effective. It depends on what you want your priest to use. You can dream 
about using this skill to boost Mjolnir damage, but it is too bad that priest 
cannot use this mace. So, if you are planning to use mace with your Priest, go

It makes your attacks turn into HOLY element. I personally think that HOLY 
element is the most useful element you can attach to your attack since most of 
the strong monsters are weak to HOLY elements. As the result, among weapon-
element-modify skills, this skill is kind of the most useful of all. But unless 
you are dealing with monster that weak against HOLY, this skill is not much of 
a deal either.

Heal is a very helpful skill as you know. Then, how about group healing skill? 
This supposes to be a great skill, right? Wrong! It is true that Sanctuary is 
an area skill that can heal by huge amount multiples of times, it is also true 
that it will heal monsters, too, unless they are undead. So, basically, as your 
health will be refilled, so does enemies. It is not so bad if used by a skilled 
player and if used in a correct timing. But usually the AI will just use it 
when ever your party health falls a little low. In some case, even if enemies 
have a very low health already, the AI will still use this skill. This skill is 
one of the reasons why people have problem with the final boss of the game.

You can use Yggdrasil leaf to revive the fallen allies. But you can do a better 
job with this skill at later level since at max level you will be able to 
revive your allies back to full health. So you will not need to heal them after 
reviving. This skill also is able to hurt undead monsters. But, normally, the 
leaf would do just fine in most case. So, unless you are really bad at this 
game you will not have to worry about this skill much.

It boosts your allies LUK status. I think LUK boost is somewhat helpful, but I

The next attack after this skill will deal twice in damage. This is one of the 
skills which can be both bad or deadly depends on how you use them. If you use 
this skill and attack with your INT base Priest, you will not go anywhere and 
better of just hitting them. But imagine if you are playing with a Blacksmith 
with a Mammonite... This way it is like your priest can do as much damage as 
Mammonite with this skill. Use this skill wisely.

Here comes another skill that strengthens your defense. This skill will make a 
panel that will nullify any physical attack. Since Priest can cast Kyrie 
Elesion, which has the very same effect, this skill is obviously inferior since 
you cannot move. But I cannot deny the fact that this skill is useful. 
Although, the effect of this skill will last longer than Kyrie Elesion, in most 
of the case, you will see that the ability to move win in the end. You will not 
want to stay in the same place that long anyway.

Finally, it is a real attack skill for priest. This will creates a ball of 
energy that pierce through enemies. It only hit once, but it will pierce 
through, so it will work great with enemies that come in line. Damage is not 
bad, but charge time might be a problem. But since Priest has Safety Wall and 
Kyrie Elesion, that should not be too much problem.

 3.4 Hunter class (skli0140)
+=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+

 Skill point total: 136

Hunter class kind of disappoints me in this game. In PC version, this class is 
broken since you will hardly miss due to the fact that DEX gives you both 
attack power and accuracy, so you don't need to worry about STR. Hunter got 
wide range of elemental arrow to use and you will hardly receive any damage due 
to long range attack and high AGI. Moreover, you can shoot arrow as fast as you 
are using machinegun and if you have high enough LUK and a falcon with you, You 
will see your falcon fly back and forth non-stop. 

We still have them here in DS version, but they have been nerf so bad! ASPD in 
this game is not as fast as in PC version. Game vision is limited due to DS 
small screen, so you will not have that much range benefits. You will no longer 
be able to shoot arrow from up hill down or the other way around, so no more 
sneak attack for you. Elemental arrow is still there, but is outclassed by STR 
boost of Megingards of other classes. Good news is that you will need to buy 
only one arrow to be able to use them forever and you will not need to buy 
traps. But that doesn't matter much anyway. This class is good to use in the 
story mode and for the most part, but when it comes to Mirage tower run, bows 
and arrows are not really cut for it. Later in the game, when you have better 
range of equipments, a hunter with knife will work better eventually.

It wouldn't hurt to have more stat bonus, especially one which increase your

will definitely help you reach that attack bonus easier.

It increases your hit rate, which is not much of a deal, but the increase of 
attack range of your bow is what makes this skill shines. Well, not really. 1 
HIT bonus per level is a joke, and you will never be able to maximize its range 
bonus usage as your DS screen cannot zoom out that much. I say that you will 
actually need 3 level of this skill and you will be able to shoot your arrow as 
far as your screen can go. Never go further than that. I would say that after 
level 3, I would give this skill E rank.

More DEX and more AGI for any ally. At level 1, you get +3 for each stat and 
increase by one for every level. This means that at level 8, your DEX boost 
will go as much as +10 which will surely net you DEX attack bonus for bow type 
weapon. SP usage is pretty high (60 at max level,) but it is very good for bow 
user.

This is my favorite skill as of Archer for some reasons. With dual Bongun 
equipped, this skill deals awesome damage for 2 times. Sadly, its cast time is 
pretty slow considering the face that Hunter usually has to do hit and run 
tactic. So, unless your enemy's movement is slow or you have a tanker, you will 
not have a chance to use this skill much.

It will hit enemies in an area. Damage it dealt is not that bad, but not that 
great either. And from my experience, by the time you finish charging this 
skill, you and your teammates should already kill of most of the enemies 
already. I usually end up using this skill on just one enemy since the rest are 
already dead. So, I prefer Double Strafing instead of this skill.

It gives you one attack bonus for each level for bow user. Although I like

is not too bad to have, but having this skill will not help you that much. It

About the same charge time as Double Strafing and about the same damage as one

that this skill can knock back enemy. That's it. Nothing is special about this 
skill.

It help you deals more damage on Beast (Animal) type of monsters. While it 
attack boost is kind of neat in number, usually this type of monster is not a 
big deal. You will be able to kill Beast type of monster with not much effort 
anyway. So, unless you are still in the story run or are still pretty weak, you 
will not need this skill since you should be already strong enough to fight 
Beast type monster. But for the most part of the story run, this skill is

"Pointless" is all I can say about this skill. Just like its name, what it does 
is it can remove trap. Why do you want to remove your trap anyway? You don't 
really need to buy trap to use them, much less have to carry traps around. Once 
you set a trap, you can place another one without remove the previous trap 
manually since the game will automatically remove it for you. I try to think 
hard why I want to remove my own trap and I cannot think of anything. If 
someone knows, please tell me. But as for now, this is the most useless skill

Here comes my favorite skill on ROPC. It is still one of my favorite skills in 
this game. This skill will make a falcon attack enemies in horizontal line. 
Thus, this can also attack multiple enemies. Good thing about this skill is 
that its damage is decided by ATK. So no matter if you have lots of DEX and 
using bow or lots of STR and using knife, this skill will still do great with 
both. Each hit is not that strong, but it can hit up to 5 times and it doesn't 
have cast time. You can spam this skill as much as you like. In Mirage tower, I 
like to destroy bright sphere using this. it is really nice to have in your

It is kind of pointless, but not completely. Unlike Remove Trap, this skill can 
do something useful (even if it is not much.) This skill will activate trap 
that had been set using falcon to touch it. Most of the case, it will just go 
KABOOM and the trap will be gone. Then, what is the different between this and 
Remove Trap then? Well, as I said so many times before that some of the traps 
can hit multiple enemies. This means that even if enemies did not touch it, as 
long as it stays close enough, it will get caught up in the burst. Same case 
happens here. But it is kink of difficult to aim and it will be a lot easier 
just to set a new trap. So it is still out of league.

Usefulness: C

You must equip bow to use this skill. This skill will makes you rapid fire your 
arrow like da machine gunzzzz!!!!..........Or so it says. If you actually get 
to use this skill, you will be disappointed. By the time you get this skill, 
you will be able to attack faster than the skill itself. Damage is not 
different than normal attack much and it use some time to get ready to shoot. 
Plus, you cannot move during attack animation. Basically, it is a lot better to 
just attack normally than use this skill.

Usefulness: A

You must use knife to be able to use this. This skill will let you attack with 
your falcon for huge damage. It is a slash enemy type of skill, so cast time is 
pretty fast. But it takes time to activate since the attack animation will 
include the time when your falcon set off and the time it comes back to attack 
in that spot. During that time, enemy might already move away. So, you will 
have to make sure that enemy will stay at the same spot when the attack 
actually lands. Besides that point, this skill can do huge amount of damage and 
it is fast to use. Basically, it is one of the reasons why I said Knife hunter 
is better than Bow hunter.

 3.5 Blacksmith class (skli0150)
+=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+

 Skill point total: 141

Broken! With blacksmith, there are lots of useful passive skills and a lot of 
useful buff skills. It is easy to get 999 ATK and 200 ASPD. Actually, you will 
eventually have too much STR with all buff together and high enough initial 
stat. That is not all, you will have a lot of broken attack skill that you some 
of awesome skills will look so normal. Since this happens, some of usefulness 
will look unbalanced. I seriously think that this class should share its 
awesome skill they don't need with some other class. Anyway, if you look at the 
skills list you will understand what I mean in no time.

Normally, I would think this skill is not that much of an offer since all it 
can do is increase the quantity of items you can carry from 20 to 30, 40, 50, 
70, 99 in that order. Normally, even with common item such as sticky mucus will 
not drop that much and you will be able to sell them often. So I thought it is 
not much... But I was wrong! This is super useful in one case, and that one 
case change the whole image for this skill. That one thing is to be able to 
carry 99 Yggdrasil Berry and 99 Yggdrasil Seeds. You will be able to do MT runs 
without ever going back to refill your item for a lonnnnnng time.

Start at 9% at level 1 and increase 3% for every level which max at 30% 
discount. What are you waiting? Buy now! ......Yea, it really sounds like an 
advertisement program. And that's about it. Since you will have plenty of Zenny 
to spend around in the end, it is kind of not matter much. I even buy 99 
Yggreasil berry without have to think back. Stuffs from stores are not that 
good anyway except healing items.

This skill is a little more useful than the previous one. You will get more 
chance to use Overcharge since you will need to sells tokens and loots you do 
not need every so often. And extra money could be nice in a way. But since it 
is about Zenny of this game we are talking about here, you it is not something 
you will need to worry about. As I say it is so easy to find zenny in this 
game, you will end up having more zenny than you would need. Just do not die 
and you should be fine, since dying will take some of your Zenny away. But as 
for this skill, it is nice to have but it is not necessary at all.

Usefulness: S

It is a fast, strong, and easy to use skill. It deals massive damage to enemy. 
This move is even stronger than bash and it is so fast to use that you can spam 
this skill. One thing about this skill that you should know is that, it use up 
money. At level 1, it is 200 zenny per use. At level 3 it is 150 zenny per use. 
For every 2 level, zenny use decrease by 50. So you will end up using 50 zenny 
per hit at max level. But who cares about zenny in this game. You should be 
able to find plenty if you are Merchant anyway. Just use it to your heart 
content. I admit that at the very first part of the game it is hard to just 
spam Mammonite like that. But when the time comes, you will find that it worth 
every zenny you paid for.

Rise your STR with very little amount of SP. You will gain 3 STR at level 1 and 
1 more STR every level, which ends at 10 STR at max level. Since for STR base 
weapon, you will get ATK bonus boost every 10 STR, at max level, you are 
guaranteed to reach this ATK bonus. With such low SP requirements, this is a 
skill you should not miss.

If you are comparing Mammonite with Bash, you could also compare this to Magnum 
Break without the FIRE element. Damage is nice and you can attack a group of 
monsters easily and fast. It might require quite a few SP, so for Merchant who 
usually has low SP, you might not have enough SP to freely use it that much. 
But at least, you will not need to spend Zenny on this attack.

When the game says about forging, it means the forging when you went to a town

I do not understand why, but it seams this skill does no damage at all. It can

any better than getting stun. It is like you stop doing any action to make 
enemy do nothing like you later. Also, it is not a 100% thing. So, there is a

It helps allies with Axe or Mace to gain more ASPD in the area of effect. This 
is why a combination of Priest and Blacksmith is so scary in Mirage Tower. Dark 
Knight with Axe can have this effect, too. But since they already have Shadow 
Quicken, it is not that much to them. This skill is especially good with solo 
MT runs when you need to break Bright sphere. It is a really useful skill, 
indeed. The only reason I only give this [A] usefulness is because there is a 
better skill than this one, just by slightly, though.

When you use this skill, your attack will always deal a maximum damage. 
Normally, the damage dealt is somewhat random. But with this skill, the damage

Decrease the amount of Zenny used when using Mammonite. Seriously, if you

This is what I am talking about when I say that there is a better skill than 
Adrenaline Rush. It is basically the very same thing as Adrenaline Rush except 
this time it works on every type of weapons. Even if your Blacksmith is using 
Sword, this will also work. Heck, it will even work on Mage with rods or 
Taekown with nothing equipped. It is obviously better than the previous one in 
every aspect.

It is an axe skill. It will allow you to do a spinning blow towards target 
location. Although I gave this skill [B] usefulness, I do not see an actual 
opportunity for this skill to shine at all. There are too many other nice 
skills to use such as Memmonite, Car Revolution, etc. This skill requires time 
to charge, does slightly high damage, and it hit only once. There is also a 
chance to miss and when you dash over to the target enemy, you will pause for a 
little while. Actually, I don not think it is a good skill.

This is what a Final Skill should be. It will cause a cave-in and many falling 
rock will attack enemies in an area with a chance to stun. It is a multiple 
attack and a multiple target skill that does super nice damage. A Blacksmith 
with high enough ATK can kill Owl Barons in the Mirage Tower in this one shot. 
This is a super broken skill. Even final boss of MT will not stand this attack 
for long. Have this and the game is as good as yours.

 3.6 Wizard class (skli0160)

 Skill point total: 148

In PC version, you will have a hard time to decide how to build this class up. 
There were too many choices to choose from and each path will leads to a 
totally different style of mage. But now, you can obtain every skill when you 
reach JobLV 99. Many skill are removed, include the very former one such as 
fire ball. Skill tree is a lot easier to figure out since it is quite straight 
forward in DS version. However, this class is kind of weak and got nerfed a 
lot.

It is certainly a fun class to play with. If you start a new game, you will 
find this class enjoyable. Just......don't try to build this class and hope 
that you will have an easy time in MT. That won't happen any day, I can tell 
you that much. Your attack will not do much and you will not be able to kill 
anything as fast as Knight or Blacksmith would do.

Usually, Wizard should have high enough INT and will not suffer SP shortage 
problem. But just to be on the safe side, you can upgrade this just for a

find that level 3 is already enough even with Golden thief bug card unless you 
are casting randomly and meaninglessly.

You might wonder why I give this skill B Usefulness even it is a skill that 
only reveals hidden enemies. Well, it can attack enemy. So what? We usually see 
it does so little damage, doesn't it? Let me tell you this, Sight damage 
depends on ATK, not your MATK. Since most of magician should have high INT and 
low STR, this skill will do crappy damage. But, if you make a STR magician, 
this skill will do more damage than you would think. Also, it has fast casting 
time. I would say it is not a completely useless skill like Hunter's detecting. 
B rank is given since you would normally have low ATK, but it also has 
potential for any STR magician.

the level of this skill. 

Lv		1	2	3	4	5	6	7	8
No. of hit	2	2	3	3	4	4	5	5

It might be the very first skill for this element branch of attack, but never 
underestimate it. For a starting skill, it does rather high damage even when 
compare with higher class of spell. The only drawback of this skill is that 
charge time is quite a problem. If you have a tanker or you are using a Safety 
Wall, I think it is a good attack spell to use

same comment for this skill that you should never underestimate it. For a 
starting skill, it does rather high damage even when compare with higher class

damage it can deal is not to bad.

It hits enemy with a WIND element bolt. It can do 1 more hit than Cold Bolt and 
Fire Bolt. It usually is faster that the two skills, too. But it still shares 
the same potential. It is a nice damaging skill, while is slow to be cast. I 
personally think it is still not a skill to be over looked, though.

It will do less damage than fire bolt. But at least, it is a lot faster to use. 
Unlike in PC version, this skill won't stop enemy. Instead, it will launch 3 
fire attacks at the start, middle, and end of your line. It is a quick draw 
skill that you can use against any enemy anytime. Since this skill is a Line on 
Ground skill, you don't have to draw a straight line. Just don't draw too long 
of a line which might cause fire wall to have holes.

this skill with the same damage level with the actual Lightning Bolt. You will

While comparing to other Charge class skill, this skill have a lot faster 
charge time. Still, since it is a Charge class skill, it is still not as fast 
as it was in PC version. While it can hit enemy at only an okay speed, its 
damage out put is still not that impressive. It is not too bad to use this 
skill, but by the time you have this skill, you will already have Fire Bolt and 
Cold Bolt. Even though they have longer charge time, I still think that the 
greater in damage will still win over such little speed difference.

Here comes skill that strengthens your defense. This skill will make a panel

It is not that this skill is not useful, but it is like double edge sword. When 
ever you got attack while this skill is activating, SP is drained. SP will be 
lost for every single hit you receive. It might be uncommon to be running out 
of SP if you have high INT, but imagine your enemies sonic blow you. Ouch! You 
will still takes some damage even with this skill on. Also, since you already 
have Safety Wall, even though Safety Wall won't move with you, I still think it 
is better than Energy Coat.

Rather than find out how many HP it got left and its name on a little bar that

skill is quite useless. It won't tell you anything except its name, remaining 
HP and Attribute that is Sun, Lunar, and Star. You will be able to see it only 
if you select it or, in other word, choose to attack it. You will be able to 
see this little information in a small description bar at the bottom of the 
screen. It won't tell you the enemy weakness, item it can drop, property, and 
enemy size. I find it rather stupid that it won't tell even enemy's element

I would rather call it "a much slower version of only one part of Fire Wall."

this and you won't need this for any other skill. I would say don't get this 
skill unless you don't have anything else in your mind. It still has quite fast 
charge and the pillar seems to be there for quite a long while and you will be 
able to use other skill during that time, so I wouldn't say it is that useless. 
But by that time, you will have an access to a lot of much better skills 
already.

+----------------------------+
 
Maximum level: 5
Needed for skills: Heaven's Drive(3)
Skills needed: -
Minimum skill point to access: 0
SP use: okay
Using method: Charge/Release
Usefulness: C

Finally, your first EARTH element attack spell which is, sadly, not that 
useful. It attacks enemy in a way much like Frost Driver. It takes time to 
charge and it attacks only one time with pitiful damage.

+----------------------------+
| Ice Wall                   |
+----------------------------+
 
Maximum level: 8
Needed for skills: Storm Gust(8)
Skills needed: Frost Driver(3)
Minimum skill point to access: 8
SP use: okay
Using method: Line on Ground
Usefulness: A

In PC version, this skill is used for preventing enemy to come near you or make 
an impassable wall. But in DS version, it is an attack spell, much like this 
version of fire wall. The only different is that it does only a huge damage 
rather than doing multiple of little damage attack. It can also cause Freeze, 
but it rarely happens. Personally, I use this skill a lot like how I use Spirit 
of Earth as Shaman. It is not a killer move that does a lot of damage, but it 
can quickly kill small enemies and you can spam this easily since it requires a 
little SP.

+----------------------------+
| Heaven's Drive             |

Maximum level: 5
Needed for skills: Quagmire(5)
Skills needed: Earth Spike(3)
Minimum skill point to access: 3
SP use: mid
Using method: Charge Area
Usefulness: B

At max level, it has long charge time, huge area of effect, and quite good 
damage. This skill is good to use against monsters which come in group. Well, 
not as good as Lord of Vermillion, but at least, it works nice enough and it 
cost a lot less SP to use.

+----------------------------+
| Jupiter Thunder            |
+----------------------------+
 
Maximum level: 8
Needed for skills: Lord of Vermillion(8)
Skills needed: Thunder Storm(3)
Minimum skill point to access: 8
SP use: mid
Using method: Charge Direction
Usefulness: B

If you played PC version, you would be disappointed. Frost Driver -> Jupitel 
Thunder used to be a killer move that kills everything easily. In DS version, 
it still works nice against frozen enemies or water element monster, but that 
insane damage of PC version is gone. It takes time to charge. Damage output is 
good, but not as good as it should be. It won't knock enemy back and it hit 
only once. Its damage is about as same as Ice Wall but the time you use to 
charge Jupiter Thunder, you could easily use it to cast around 3 or more Ice 
Wall. It is still not that bad of a skill, though. 

+----------------------------+
| Quagmire                   |
+----------------------------+
 
Maximum level: 5
Needed for skills: -
Skills needed: Heaven's Drive(5)
Minimum skill point to access: 8
SP use: okay
Using method: Circle on Ground
Usefulness: D

It decreases AGI/DEX/moving speed of an enemy in an area. So what? The area of 
effect is small no matter what level it is. You won't be able to use any other 
skill while this skill is active. Which means you can't attack! I would say I 
rather have a full strength enemy that got hit by my magic than have a little 
weaker enemy hit me. Even it is a Circle on Ground type of skill, it still have 
a casting delay. So, it is possible that it would miss your target. Small, not 
damaging, prevent you from attack. That's what I have to say about this skill. 
Avoid it at all cost.

| Meteor Storm               |

Maximum level: 8
Needed for skills: Doomsday(8)
Skills needed: Sight(5)
               Thunder Storm(5)
Minimum skill point to access: 15
SP use: high
Using method: Tap Area
Usefulness: A

A comet will fall from sky and attack your enemies. You will be able to tap 3 
times no matter what level it is. But the number of hit of each meteor is 
different by level.

Lv		1	2	3	4	5	6	7	8
Hits per ball	2	2	2	2	3	3	3	3

Although skills which are needed to access this skill are not FIRE element, it 
is actually FIRE property attack. It may also cause stun to enemy.

Maximum level: 8
Needed for skills: Doomsday(8)
Skills needed: Lord of Vermillion(8)
Minimum skill point to access: 16
SP use: super
Using method: Charge Area
Usefulness: A

It is a WIND element attack that will wreck havoc out of anything in the area 
of effect. Charge icon might seem small, but the real area of effect is as much 
as almost entire screen. It also cause blind to enemies which is not a big deal 
here. It is good for its multiple hits with high damage. If you ever play PC 
version of this game, you will still feel the same way about this great spell.

+----------------------------+
| Storm Gust                 |
+----------------------------+
 
Maximum level: 8
Needed for skills: Doomsday(8)
Skills needed: Ice Wall(8)
Minimum skill point to access: 16
SP use: super
Using method: Charge Area
Usefulness: A

It will cause a ice storm in the area of effect. Of course, this is WATER 
element attack. It has higher attack rate than Lord of Vermillion. Only problem 
is that it can Freeze enemies. Why Freezing is a problem, you ask? Well, when 
enemies got frozen, it is considered water element enemies. Thus, water element 
attack can't damage it. So, you will need to hope that your enemies are not 
frozen.

Minimum skill point to access: 68
SP use: super
Using method: Circle on Ground
Usefulness: A

This skill is a pain to get since it requires that you max out the best spell 
for each element. But I think once you get this, you will not be disappointed. 
It does 6 non-elemental hits on enemies in the area. Moreover, the best thing 
about it is that this skill is super fast to cast. It has no element (VOID) so 
it will work on any kind of enemies.

 3.7 Taekwon master class (skli0170)
+=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+

 Skill point total: 144

To tell you the truth, I never play ROPC to the point that they introduced this 
class. So, basically I cannot compare Taekwon class from DS version and PC 
version. Also, since I had no experience using this class before DS version, my 
point of view on this class would be somewhat strange. But, please do not mind 
that.

One thing about Solar, Lunar, Stellar skills, in DS version it is working 
differently from PC version. From what I have read, they have nothing in common 
at all. So, if you were playing Taekwon class in PV version, please pay 
attention to these skill types since you might be confused by how different 
they are.

In fact, when I get used to using this class, I think it can perform pretty 
well. Rather, if you use it correctly, it can be a walking killing machine in a 
way. There are a lot of weird skills for this class and a lot of them are 
confusing. Lucky enough, it does not playing too much role and you might not 
have to worry about it much. But once you mastered how to use this class, you 
will find it is quite an interesting class.

+----------------------------+
 
Maximum level: 8
Needed for skills: -
Skills needed: -
Minimum skill point to access: 0
SP use: mid
Using method: Max Charge
Usefulness: B

If you are not equipping anything, charge it and you will be able to gain more 
attack power. It stays for quite a while which is a good thing and it is not 
that hard to use. The reason that I do not give it much credit is the fact that 
you will have to not equipping anything. Thus, you will loose chance to use any 
card and you will not gain any addition attack you may get by equipping. I 
think this is not so good since you will loose your chance to use Frione card, 
Hornet card, Skeleton worker card, etc. But, as a first job, you cannot equip 
anything anyway, so it is not so bad for beginner.

+----------------------------+
 
Maximum level: 8
Needed for skills: Phoenix Wing(5)
Skills needed: -
Minimum skill point to access: 0
SP use: okay
Using method: Charge Direction
Usefulness: C

You will do a spin kick that attack into a target direction. It might use up 
sometime to charge and when you release it, you will be right next to enemy 
(assume that you aim at an enemy, duh.) In my opinion, it is not better than 
just running up to enemy and directly hit enemy later. Damage is okay, but 
nothing special. I would rather use Axe kick or Round kick instead.

+----------------------------+

Maximum level: 8
Needed for skills: Phoenix Wing(5)
Skills needed: -
Minimum skill point to access: 0
SP use: okay
Using method: Slash Enemy
Usefulness: A

When using this, you will make a kick that chop down on top of enemy (it should 
be like that,) and making it stun. This is another Bash-like skill for Taekwon 
class. Of course, this type of skill is usually good. It can deal okay damage 
and it is easy enough to spam this skill.

Maximum level: 8

Using method: Circle on Ground
Usefulness: A

When using this, you will do a swing kick that will attack many enemies at the 
same time. Think of is as Cart Revolution. It does okay damage and, above all, 
it is a fast multi-target attack. It is a really nice skill to use.

+----------------------------+

+----------------------------+
 
Maximum level: 8
Needed for skills: Phoenix Wing(5)
Skills needed: -
Minimum skill point to access: 0

Using method: Slash Enemy
Usefulness: A

You will do a slide kick to a target when using this skill. I really have no 
idea what is different from this and Axe Kick besides the fact that it cannot 
stun. I see that this skill can do slightly more damage, but that could be just 
my imagination since the difference is not significant. It is still not too bad 
of a skill to use.

Maximum level: 8
Needed for skills: Phoenix Wing(5)
Skills needed: -
Minimum skill point to access: 0
SP use: okay
Using method: Charge/Release
Usefulness: B

When using this skill, you will be jump kicking towards the target direction. 
This class is more useful to just stand there and kick enemy face to face. This 
skill takes time to charge and it is best used when you are away from the 
target. So, this is not quite an ideal skill for Taekwon. I find it easier to 
just walk towards enemies and Axe Kick them to death.

Maximum level: 8

Skills needed: -
Minimum skill point to access: 0
SP use: low
Using method: Max Charge
Usefulness: B

It recovers your HP. To tell you the truth, it is not as nice as its sound. It 
can heal just a little HP and I think that Knight's HP recovery UP can do 
better since you do not have to charge by yourself. For solo MT run, you can 
use this skill in an empty room, where you already cleared the area out. But, 
do not think about using this while combating.

Using method: Max Charge
Usefulness: B

It recovers your SP. It requires no SP to be used, but it also heals your SP by 
only a little amount. It heals so little that I think it is not even worth your 
time. Still, if you are isolate or in an empty room in MT, it is not too bad to 
recover once in a while. But, do not think about using this while combating.

Minimum skill point to access: 10
SP use: high
Using method: Charge/Select
Usefulness: C

It can change your attack into FIRE, WATER, WIND, or EARTH element. Actually, I 
do not think that this skill is that useful since these elements does not play 
a big part in fighting strategy and I do not think we should go as far as 
memorize every enemies elemental weakness. Those reasons are just some little 
part, though. The real reasons why this skill sucks is that there is no way to 
tell what element we are currently using or check if it is still in effect or 
not. It is true that we can assume that if you tab red, yellow, green, or blue 
panel, you will gain FIRE, EARTH, WIND, or WATER element in your attack. But 
there is a chance that we touch the wrong one without realize that fact and 
there will be no way to check. Just ignore this skill, really.

| 3.7.2 second job skill (skli0172) | Skill point total: 76
+===================================+

*Note: Every monster has its own type. It can either be Solar, Lunar, or 
Stellar type monster. You can check by using wizard's skill [Sense]. BTW, 
Detardeurus (MT50 boss) is a Lunar type monster.

Also, in game, when it says about [even number day], [odd number day], and [day 
that can divided by 3] which refers to Solar, Lunar, and Stellar in that order, 
it actually means like this:

Day	Solar	Lunar	Stellar
1	  X	  O	  X
2	  O	  X	  X
3	  X	  X	  O
4	  O	  X	  X

As you can see, Lunar got 1 more day than the other type. With the fact that 
Detardeurus is also Lunar, I often find myself upgrading Lunar stuff first.

It helps you to increase defense against Solar type monsters. While it is a

Finally, here comes a skill worth mentioning as a second job skill. When you 
are using this skill, you will be doing multiple kicks on a target enemy.

When you are using this skill, you will be shooting a spirit ball at released 
direction. I would say this is not too bad if it do not take too much time to 
charge. Damage is okay and it is not too hard to aim this. But, I think it is 
better to just use Phoenix Wing since it is easier to access that skill. Also 
to get Spirit Bomb, you will have to upgrade

 3.8 Dark Knight (skli0180)
+=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+

 Skill point total: 117 

This class is pretty interesting. It is a Jack of all trade in physical attack 
area. You will be able to use 1-handed swords, 2-handed swords and axes with 
this class. This means, you will be able to use lots of the strong weapons in 
this game. It also has lots of attack skill types to play with and interesting 
buff skills. It is easy to reach 999 ATK and 200 ASPD with Dark Knight, too. 
And with high Critical rate, 200 ASPD is really something. In solo Mirage Tower 
runs, Dark Knight can do pretty well. In fact, this is the first class that I 
use to complete solo MT challenge (well, since at that time, I still didn't 
know about Knight and Blacksmith broken potential...)

But seriously, what's up with its design!?! I see art work for this class which 
is not too bad, but the sprite is too funny. Its coolness of something supposes 
to be a "dark evil warrior" had been reduced into some weird looking dude. At 
least a girl design is not that bad, though. But do not misjudge this class by 
its looks, since it can be one of the most reliable classes you need to cut 
your enemies down!

No!!!!! I can't just copy-paste description from Knight Section anymore OTL... 
Anyway, this skill will increase damage you can do when using Axe. Personally, 
I like to use Axe with this class. The only thing that I regret about not using 
sword is that I will not be able to use Death Blade, But I still think be able 
to run fast with Bloody Axe is nicer. It is up to you, though

It will give you 1 bonus CRI for every level. Someone use to say that this 
class is more Assassin like that the Assassin. This is one of the reasons why 
they said that. Assassin has no skill that improve Critical rate while this 
class has one. Too bad you cannot use Katar with Dark Knight or it would be so 
broken. With Shadow Quicken also available, you will be Critical killing 
machine.

Wait for enemy to attack you, and then you can counter with critical hit. The 
hit you receive will also be nullified. Sound good? I don't think it is as nice 
as it sound. Usually, this skill fails since waiting time is the problem. 
Unless you are really getting use to this skill, it is quite hard to catch 
enemy attack. In some case, enemy might use magic on you, which will make this 
whole thing meaning less. On the other hand, even if you can master the use of 
this skill, I find it a lot easier to just smack my enemies in their face even 
before they got a chance to attack me.

It will boost your STR by a HUGE amount with a little HP consumption. Look at 
this table.

Lv               1	2	3	4	5	6	7	8
Time of effect   30	60	90	120	150	180	210	240
HP drained (sec) 1	2	3	4	5	6	7	8
STR gained       15	20	25	30	35	40	45	50

I found that at 99 initial STR, 2 Megingards, and some DEX and LUK, You will 
not even need to max this skill to reach 999 ATK. That is how useful this skill 
is. A little draw back is that it drains your HP, which is not that much. I 
recommend you to cast this regularly and you will be a walking killing machine.

It will boost your ASPD by a really HUGE amount with a little HP consumption. 
Look at this table.

Lv               1	2	3	4	5	6	7	8
Time of effect   30	60	90	120	150	180	210	240
HP drained (sec) 1	2	3	4	5	6	7	8
ASPD gained (%)  4	8	12	16	20	24	28	32

With this skill, 200 ASPD is a very easy task. Since you will gain 32% at max 
level, this means that if you have 152 ASPD, it will become 200 when you use 
this skill. Unlike 2-hand quicken and the likes, you will actually see the 
difference easily. HP got drained? Just use Bloody Crash. Seriously, it can 
have more of my HP if it does this good of a job.

It gives your weapon a BLIND element. Bad choice, really. Lots of monsters are 
strong against this element. And do not think that it will cause Blind status

damage on Poring?

Attack enemy and drain around 40% HP from damage to heal you. This is best use 
with Dark Breath and Shadow Quicken. Since both suck away your HP but 
strengthen your attack, this skill will also be stronger and drain you more HP. 
But, do not depend on this skill to heal you instead of potion. It is not that 
reliable since sometime when you face with tough enemy, your damage decrease 
and thus your HP gained also decrease

It can blind and deals damage on enemies in an area. It is fast to cast and 
have a nice area of effect. Damage is also not too bad. The only problem is 
that it requires some SP. Think of this as Magnum Break without FIRE element.

Usefulness: C

It is an attack with a chance to confuse. Actually, this might not be as bad as 
I said, but compare to the other skills, it is not too great either. Even 
though it said Charge Location on using method, it covers quite wide area. It 
can only deal damage to enemy one time, though. I still do not see why someone 
would choose this over Genocide.

You have to equip Sword to be able to use this skill. It shoots a blade wave 
out of a sword into a direction. It is not too great since it requires some 
time too charge. It does nice damage, though. I would normally not use this 
skill, but it is up to you. You might be able to find a use from this skill 
since I think it still have some potential. But for me, I would say no.

This skill is for Sword user. You will be able to shoot 3 dark blades from the 
depth of hell to attack enemies. It is actually really good and it can attack 
fast. Nice damage from this skill makes it even better. Some people prefer this 
skill for solo MT run. Just watch your SP and you should do fine, I guess.

This skill is for Axe user. It can deals massive damage in an area. It really 
deals huge damage, but just for only once. For its charge time and area of 
effect, this skill might be a let down for a final skill. But it is definitely 
not a useless skill. If you plan your use properly, it might be a useful skill.

 3.9 Shaman (skli0190)
+=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+

 Skill point total: 117

A jack of many (not all) trades, master of absolutely none. It can somehow 
support. It can attack with magic. But Shaman will hardly be able to survive in 
MT alone. In the matter of fact, I think Shaman might be the worst class of 
choice to do solo MT with. Don't get me wrong, I still think this class is kind 
of fun to play with, and it is a very good AI team member. I usually find 
Sierra more reliable than Rolek for some reason. Well, when she is not doing 
her raining dance that is...

Despites all that bad points, Shaman can be a nice healer and also an okay 
attacker. Shaman still lack when it comes to Physical attack, but who cares. 
Also, character design is cool >.< Male Shaman looks kinnda...girlish, though. 
Anyway! If you are just playing for fun and do not care about solo MT run, then 
this class is no a bad choice.

I don't know why they decided to make a different name for this skill when it 
is exactly the same with SP Recovery UP for Priest and Wizard. But anyway, it 
increases your SP regeneration rate which is a nice thing for spell user type 
of class. Just that, you don't really need that much SP recovery in the end. I 
suggest you only upgrade it until you can get Rain Dance and you will have more 
than enough.

This is a Heal skill for Shaman. It can heal less than "Heal" of Priest. But, 
you can still heal a thousand HP easily anyway and that should be good enough 
in most case. Since it is useful enough to be able to support anyone in most

This skill really is what made Shaman different from every class. If you play 
PC version, you will know about how people are getting marry just for SP 
healing skill. Well, folks, you have got it here. This skill refills your ally 
SP by large amount. This will be a lot useful with party member who have less 
SP like Knight or Blacksmith. But, when it comes to solo play, you will have 
plenty of SP from Auto Heal already. But it is never hurt to be on the safe 
side, right? Unlike Spiritual Comfort, its action animation takes more time to

It increases your ally DEF and MDEF. It seems that as you level up, buff will 
just stay longer from 35 seconds at level 1 and increase 5 seconds for each

It helps you to increase damage you can do with WATER element attack. Because 
of that, the only skill that will work with this is Spirit of Water, which is a 
nice skill. However, when it comes to actual use, it is not that great. It is 
not that good since I do not really see the difference before and after using 
this skill even at max level. The reason might be that it is necessary to have 
this skill at level 3 to be able to have Spirit of Water. So, a little 
difference in level will not affect damage outcome much.

Attack a target enemy with a SPIRIT element spell. It is the beginning of 
Shaman's attack skill.  It is fast to cast, but also has quite slow animation 
and recharge time. It takes sometime to actually hit enemy which during that 
time you might get hit by enemies. It is not that bad if you are using it 
carefully. The thing is usual damage output is not that good. It is due to the 
fact that this attack is SPIRIT element spell and not many enemies are weak 
against it

Shoot a FIRE ball in one direction and hit an enemy it first touched with a 
chance to confuse. It will do okay damage even for a single attack, but it 
takes time to charge. Usually, if you want to use this without getting hit, you 
will have to runaway quite far and charge from far away. FIRE element seldom 
works, but considers how it works this skill still does not cut to be one of

Launch 3 pillars of EARTH wave energy with a chance to petrify any enemies 
which touch the pillar. It is ridiculously fast. It is ridiculously strong. It 
can inflict a useful status effect. This skill here will be your main arsenal 
that you can spam easily. The only bad part about this is actually that useful 
petrify status effect will makes enemies turn into EARTH monster. You will do 
zero damage to EARTH monster with this attack so to attack enemies which were 
petrified with it is quite useless. You will just have to hit it with something 
else. It is still a great skill, though.

Make a circle area filled with WATER wave which attack multiple times with a 
chance to mute enemies. It is like a mini Storm Gust since it is a little 
smaller and damage is smaller. But, it also has a little faster charge time, 
too. So, it is not that bad. Mute, or Silence which ever you choose to call it, 
is not a big deal here. This skill is good for its use for attacking.

Shoot a WIND ball in one direction and hit an enemy it first touched with a 
chance to sleep. That is right, it is almost the same as Spirit of Fire except 
this time it is WIND element and sleep instead of confuse. Except for the 
slightly more useful negative status effect, nothing is really different here. 
It requires more of other skill than Spirit of Fire and this is only what they 
can offer. It is kind of a let down...

This is truly a let down compare to Spirit of Wind. What it does is allow you 
to tap up to 3 times on screen where SPIRIT balls will fall to attack enemies 
multiple times. Sounds great, right? Since it is a Tap Area skill, it should be 
easy enough to spam this skill, right? Well, yea it does. But is this pitiful 
damage is about!?! Even though it is fast to cast, delay time is too great that 
you will not be able to cast another spell soon. Each ball will hit around 5 
times, with around 100-200 damage per hit even at 999 MATK. Pitiful, I tell 
you. Even Wizard's Thunder Storm can do better than this. You definitely cannot 
depend on this skill to do solo MT. Spirit of Earth, on the other hand, can 
deal more damage than this. This skill is not worthy enough to be called a 
final skill.

                   4. Q&A (quan)
   +=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=+



Q: What is rank?
A: Rank shows how much you have used that skill. If you used that skill lots of 
time, rank will be increased to the maximum of S rank. Higher the rank, lower 
SP cost for that skill. Passive skill is not included, obviously. At rank S, it 
will reduce SP cost in half. You will be able to upgrade by one rank after 
every 50 uses except rank S which requires 100 uses.

----------
From Ultima Pi: 

Rank D reduces it by 0%, C 10%, B 20%, A 30%, and S 50%
From Rank D to C is 50 uses, C to B is another 50, B to A is yet another 50, 
and A to S is 100.
Also, rebirthing resets all ranks to D.
----------

Q: Is it possible to manually set skills for other party member?
A: No. The closest to that is that you make your own character and dupe it into 
your party with Mirage Tower character duplication technique.

Q: How can I dupe Character from MT, then?
A: This technique will dupe your character that you use in MT. It will copy 
appearance, skill, level, and even equipments. Traits are random, however.

1. Make sure your party is full (such as 16/16) 
2. Go to Mirage tower. 
3. Challenge in single player mode. 
4. Go to menu. Do not choose preparation complete. 
5. Leave Menu screen with back icon on the lower right. 
6. Leave Preparation screen completely. Do not choose preparation complete. 
7. Leave MT, go back to Guild headquarter. 
8. Kick a party member. 
You will notice that your member number is the same. Check the last member. It 
will be the character from MT.

This info is thanks to a Gamefaqs Board topic created by noreplywtf.

Q: I tried to duplicate skill point as said in cheat section. It didn't work!
A: Japanese version only. Nothing you can do about that.

Q: Hair style 23?
A: Yea, I also want to know...

                   5. Tips (tips)

Fun fact!

- The Maximum skill point while you are Novice is 10 (have 1 skill point at Job 
level 1)

- When change to 1st Job, your Skill point will be reset to 1 along with job 
level, and Skills from Novice are gone.

- Maximum skill point you can earn while you are in 1st job is 50.

- When change to 2nd Job, your current Skill stays and your unused skill point 
will still be there. This is kind of useful if 2nd Job skill is a lot better or 
needed. For example, you don't need to put point into Sward mastery and save 
them for Spear mastery in the 2nd Job for Poke Knight.

- Maximum skill point you can earn in 2nd job is 99.

- Your cloned character is really your clone. It will copy anything. It also 
means that if you did limit break, your copied character will also have Maximum 
Job level increase! Which means for 5 times or more limit break the copied 
character will also have the maximum Job level at 99 no matter when you copied 
it? No need to train your character until it reaches 99/99 just for character 
dupe, yay!

- It is easier to tap avatar of you teammates when you want to use skill on 
them. In fact, if your teammate die and you left that area, the only way to use 
resurrection is to tap its avatar.

- Me: Well, I made this. So, I think I should give myself a pat in the back.

- GameFAQs: A wonderful site that always helping me with many games I had 
problem with and thanks for hosting this file.

- You: You are reading this! That is already cool enough.

- Nintendo: I hate you for making me addicted to your NintendoDS! Kidding. Your 
company rocks!

- Ultima Pi: For pointing out about rank and for giving me the idea of using 
the word "usefulness" instead.
