This FAQ is copyright (c) 2001 J.Gour 

I wrote this FAQ because there weren't any in depth skill FAQ's and 
cause I think its high time that folks get to see the English names for 
this guys skill's on an FAQ and be able to know what they are doing. 
Steal this FAQ and I'll be forced to go to your place of living, smash 
your computer, and Steal all your Kit-Kat Bars.

------------------------- 
I. Ried as a Character 
------------------------- 

Name: Reid Hershel 
Age: 18 
Height: 5'10" 
Weight: 137 lbs. 

Most Notable Characteristic: Gluttony 
Weapon: Sword, L-Sword, Knife, Axe, 
Lance, Spear, Pole-Arm 

Ried is a great character; he has personality, a bottomless pit of a 
stomach and great skills as a swordsman. In this FAQ we will be focusing 
on the last part, his Sword Skills, how to learn them, abuse them, and 
so on. 


------------------------- 
II.  Combo's for Ried 
------------------------- 

Ried is more difficult to make independent combos with then Farah. 
This is because his special moves don't link into each other and can 
sometimes get on your nerves because of it. He CAN combo, just not 
as ludicrously. Here is how it is done 

Normal String ---- Special Skill ----- Sacred Skill 


------------------------- 
III. Learning his Moves

SPECIAL SKILLS 

If you see the skill listed but it is in blue lettering then you need 
to raise your slash or thrust level as listed in the FAQ. Too bad 
there isn't a numeric measure of the level, only a bar. But if you

and Thrust, keep track and you won't get too lost.

that I based these off of. I really didn't do much, this is just 
an FAQ to make peoples life a wee bit easier. I would also like 
to thank RPGFreaks for clarifying how to do the extension 
for Omega Demon Chaos and Omega Seal. Thanks to all of you
