Legend of Mana Complete Technique List 6/18/00
v2.75 By Ronnie Crowder (Deathscythe52@hotmail.com)

I got Legend of Mana the day it came out then went on GameFaqs a few day later
to find the ST list.  All I found were Japanese lists of the abilities so I
decided to take matters into my own hands and after many hours this is what I
came up with.  This is also my first FAQ so I hope it's good enough.

Updates
6/18/00-added updates, fixed some typos, expect ranges soon
6/17/00-added my strategy
6/17/00-made the list clearer,added damage
6/16/00-first release all abilities and techniques done


My Learning Strategy:
A lot of you are asking how to learn the STs that need 3 or 4 abilities. Well
those abilities are required meaning you must have them to learn the technique,
you don't have to have them all on there. What I did to learn the techniques
was
1.Go to the weakest enemies in YOUR game (Mekiv Caverns or Luon Highway)
2.Put the final 4 STs I have of that weapon
3.Learn the ones farther up the list first (ex:Aerial Reaver before Phoenix)
note:this doesn't mean learn all knife before sword
4.Put 2 abililities of the one you are trying to learn (preferably ones you can
attack with) and use them
5.If you don't get the technique after a while switch to other abililities
needed
This is what I did to learn them, but keep in mind it takes a VERY long time to
learn some.
