Quick Foreword
--------------

As you might have not known, before reading this FAQ, that I have included
both names, and properties of each skill in relation to versions of the game 
in both the Western world, and Japan. Also, I have included PS2 version techs
for the curious, and the importers.


Introduction to Spells and Techs
--------------------------------

Skills and Spells are the basis of battles within Tales of Symphonia.
The battles wouldn't even look half as appealing without a fireball 
screeching across the battlefield or a Super-Mega-Ultra-Cool,
Colourful-Flashy-Lighty attack to finish off a foe.

Skills and Spells in Symphonia, unlike any previous Tales game, are 
divided into 2 categories of fighting. Tactical, and Strike.

Both categories spawn from EX Skills, which are covered in another FAQ.
(Gogeta75's EX Skills FAQ)

Depending on the attack type alignment your character is with, he/she will
learn that category of skill. 


Tactical Vs Strike
------------------

Now alot of people have been asking about this as of late, and all I can 
say is that both paths have their respective advantages. 

Some character's Tactical and Strike paths have certain 
characteristics. Eg. One path might deal a more noticable about of damage,
but cannot be used in Unison Attacks (such the case with Shihna's/Sheena's
Skill paths).

Remember, you can have a combonation of techniques from BOTH branches, 
plus ample time for change during your quests. 

More will be covered later regarding character specifics.


Aquisition
----------

Ok, now getting to the real point of all this.

Taking Majinken (Demon Fang) as an example.. 

After you have used Majinken (Demon Fang) 50 times (same number applys to 
every skill in the game) and hit or pass the level 16, you aquire Majinken
Souga (Double Demon Fang), if you are aligned with Tactical. 
But if you are aligned with S, you aquire Gou Majinken (Fierce Demon Fang). 

And moving on, if you are still with T or S, and after 50 times usage of 
Majinken Souga (Double Demon Fang) or Gou Majinken (Fierce Demon Fang), 
and you reach the level of 50, you aquire Majinrengazan or Magoujin, 
respectively. 

That's just for the basic tech Majinken (Demon Fang), and there are many 
more for ones like Shunjinken (Sonic Thrust), Kougahazan (Tiger Blade), 
Chirisazame (Sword Rain), Shishisenkou (Beast) and Renkuuzan (Tempest). 

You can have combonations of T and S skills for different skills, but 
not of the same skill line. You can have Shinkuuretsuzan 
(Omega Tempest T- Upgrade of Tempest) and Soushou (Sonic Sword Rain 
S- Upgrade of Sword Rain), but not Shinkuuretsuzan (Omega Tempest) 
and Retsubuu (Psi Tempest), because both skills are from the same technique
tree (Tempest).

To change from one to another, just change which EX Skills you assign.
From Tactical, to Strike, or vise-versa. (Click on the skill, then choose 
another one from the list of 4. You can see what type it is in the top right
hand corner of the little description box.)
  
Then go into a few battles (about 7-10, then you'll see a difference). 
Your alignment should change from one to the other, but gradually.

If you wish to learn the other alignment's techs, you have to "forget" the 
version of the upgrade you already know.

Eg. You know Double Demon Fang, but you want to learn Fierce Demon Fang,
You have to "forget" Double Demon Fang by going into the skills menu,
selecting Double Demon Fang, then pressing X. You'll be prompted whether
you want to do this, and press Yes.

Then go into a battle, and using Demon Fang a few times, you should aquire 
Fierce Demon Fang.

By the way, alot of people having been asking on what is that blue skill?
It is simply the Symphonia way of saying that you are going to aquire that
skill soon, or if something is preventing you aquireing it. It may be due to
you being in the wrong alignment, or you are not a high enough level (but 
this only happens if you are 2-3 levels away). Red Text skills indicate you
do not have the TP reserves to use it. 


Skill Listings
--------------

Now here is kind of the meat of the FAQ, and the potatoes are what was 
mentioned before. I hope you got a good meal by munching on some nummy
gouds, there.

Key~

--- (If the 3 hyphens are placed before a name, then it means it is a root
     skill, or a skill which only has a level-requirement.)

Sword/Fuujitsu/Kicking Techs
----
Name- The Name, in the US/PAL version, and the Japanese version.
TP- TP Cost
Hits- Combo of amount of hits delt in the tech
Damage spread- is (a number) times normal attack multiplied by hit count.
               Eg. 1.2 X 3 | 3.1 (Thunder) means 1.2 times normal damage, 
               and it is done 3 times. The second part of the technique 
               deals 3.1 normal, plus Thunder-type Damage. 
Special Notes (if apply)- Self Explanatory
----

Spells
----
Name- The Name!
TP- TP Cost
Type- Type of Damage
Hits- Combo of amount of hits delt in the spell
Target- Who or what is affected by the spell
Special notes (if apply)- Blah blah.


How the requirements work -
. Default: Automatically aquired
. T-Line/S-Line: The tech is aligned to this EX-skill path.
. Lv. #: The character must be at or beyond this level.
. Elemental Damage (blah): The character must be dealing this element damage 
                           to "unlock" the tech. The tech remains active so 
                           as long as the element is still being delt.
. Used (Blah skill) (Blah uses) times: Use the prerequsite skills a set 
                                number of times (either 50 or 200)
. Must know (blah skill): Must have the prerequisite skill already aquired.
. Event: Sometimes the tech can be aquired during an event, or can be 
         performed after the event in the story..
