                           V) ABOUT PERSONAL SKILLS
=============================================================================
=============================================================================

Welcome to heavens! This is where all of your questions will be answered. I
grew fond of ask/answer type of sections I used for my last two guides, so I
decided to use it in here as well.

Q1: What is a Personal Skill?
A1: Personal Skill...? *looks up in dictionary* Got it! Personal Skills are
like pieces of armor. When equipped *and* activated (NOTE 1), they do
something.
NOTE 1: If Personal Skill is equipped only, it DOESN'T DO ANYTHING on its own.
You must activate it at least once to start enjoying bonuses it gives.

Q2: What do you mean by 'they do something'? Explain!
A2: Range of PS effects is quite wide. To name a few: they can either protect
you against various element attacks, shield you from taking physical damage,
make your attacks stronger, or just plainly give some bonuses.

Q3: How do I equip Personal Skills?
A3: You don't equip Personal Skills themselves. More specifically, you equip
Gears on mediums, which are attached to your chrs. You can do so by accessing
main menu by pressing Triangle, selecting Medium menu, and finally Equip.

Q4: Hold your berries! One step at a time! What is a Gear?
A4: A Gear is a type of item that 'carries' a PS. Lemme rephrase: if Gear item
is selected and you press and hold Triangle, item description will appear at
the top explaining what the item does.
For example: you select Dark Ring, press/hold Triangle and it will read:
'Adds personal skill that nullifies [dark] attacks.'

Q5: So how do I equip this Gear item on a medium?
A5: *screen goes black* WARNING: Before making any adjustments, make sure to
save your game! We now return to regular program... *wakes up* Where was I?
Each medium you obtain already has 3 PS. You can add more PS to certain medium
by using Gear items. Max number of additional PS is five. This means that in
the end one medium can have a max of 8 PS. Once Equip is selected, choose a
medium you wish to equip, then select a gear slot and finally assign desired
Gear item.

Q6: Ooops, I accidentally added PS I didn't want to... What do I do now?
A6: If you messed up, there's not much you can do. Unless you saved your game
before tweaking around with Gears and PS, you're screwed. Any Gear you delete
is lost permanently and you cannot get it back. Deleting PS is only encouraged
once you feel they no longer serve the purpose. Clear example of no-purpose-
left-PS is: You obtain Prism Crown, which guards against all element attacks.
Obviously, Dark Ward, Light Ward and Co. are no longer needed.

Q7: Even though I equipped Gears on mediums, PS still do nothing. What's going
on?
A7: You forgot to equip mediums on your chrs, silly. This is how you do it:
First access main menu by pressing Triangle, select Medium menu, and finally
Invoke: main purpose of Invoke is to equip various mediums to your chrs (max
number of mediums you can equip is three per one chr). To select a medium you
wish to equip, first select a character, then select one of three available
slots and finally select the medium.

Q8: Still nothing happens! What's going on? *throws a tantrum*
A8: Really the last thing needed is to allocate Personal Skill points (PS point
from now on) to desired PS. First access main menu by pressing Triangle, select
Medium menu, and finally Personal Skill. Then select the chr whose PS you wish
to equip/change. Each medium equipped already possesses three PS. You can equip
these PS on your chrs by expending PS points your chrs gain each time they
level up (you gain one PS point for each level - for example, at Lv50 Virgo has
50 available PS points to allocate). You'll see that most PS have up to four
levels of activation. That means you can invest PS points into a particular PS
more than once in order to increase this PS' effect. To allocate PS points,
select Manual, then the desired skill. PS points are deducted with each
activation. You can equip single chr with up to 24 PS.

Q9: What do you mean by 'increasing PS' effect'?
A9: Here's a simple example of PS' effect increasing: Dark Ward has four levels
of activation (1 PS point per level). Each time you invest 1 PS point, your
resistance to dark element attacks will increase - first level by 25%, second
by 50%, third by 75%, fourth (final) by 100%.

Q10: Besides Manual I see two more commands when I'm allocating PS. These
commands are Auto and Reset. What do they do?
A10: Auto command allows you to automatically distribute available PS points
with help of one of five parameters (Average, Attack, Defense, Elemental,
Status).
Reset command lets you retrieve PS points allocated to a certain PS. Use this
command when you wish to assign PS points to a PS which you think is more
suitable for the current situation.

Q11: I think I now know enough about PS... *begins to back away slowly*
A11: Where do you think you're going? Stuff up there is not why you're reading
this. I was just about to fill you in on PS and explaining them to the best of
my abilities.

LEGEND:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
PERSONAL SKILL    | LEVEL            | PSP              | GEAR

WHAT IT DOES?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
1*
2*
3*
4*
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
OBTAIN GEAR?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q12: What do certain stuffs stand for?
A12: Below are explanations of legend's parts.

PERSONAL SKILL part: Name of the Personal Skill in question.
LEVEL part         : Amount of activation levels this particular PS has. For
                     example, Dark Ward has four levels of activation, while
                     Counterattack has two.
PSP part           : How many PS points are needed for one activation level.
                     For example, to activate one level of Dark Ward, you
                     need to invest 1 PS point. To activate one level of
                     Counterattack, you need to invest 2 PS points.
GEAR part          : Name of Gear item that can teach this particular PS.
WHAT IT DOES? part : Detailed description of what does this particular PS do.
                     In some of explanations I'll also let you know the % of
                     success in preventing sth from happening or triggering
                     sth to happen with help of 1*, 2*, 3* and 4*.
1*, 2*, 3*, 4* part: These all denote the appropriate activation level of
                     this particular PS. In short, if you see written 3*
                     Fallen Ward, that means that Fallen Ward has been
                     activated up to third activation level (of possible
                     four).
OBTAIN GEAR? part  : Info on how to obtain additional units of item that
                     teaches this PS.

When wearer's HP becomes critically low, and wearer decides to use Shoot,
Attack or Gatling during these conditions, this PS increases wearer's damage
done. SOS Power Boost is tossed into the big FP Boost pile. This means that
although the BASE damage boost is indeed 100%, it tends to be alot lower
because you tend to have over 0 FP.

So if damage is:
(2*ATT-DEF)*rand*(mults)

The mults go like this:

(1+FP/100+K/4+Z)

K = SOS Power Boost level
Z = Lockon

So it's basically adding +25 FP onto your shot for every point.

                                XII) TO DO LIST
=============================================================================
=============================================================================

I'll be having this section as a reminder to what I still need to do. You can
help me out by reading it, seeing what I'm missing and if you have the answer,
sending me an e-mail with your answer.

- I have a feeling that not all PS can be obtained by items, so... Are LIFE
CHARGE, FORCE CHARGE, EXP BOOST, FOCUS and INOCULATION available only on
mediums? Ie, you cannot obtain an item which would add this PS.
- complete 'where to get?' parts one time in the future:)
- for items I'm not sure if they are common or rare, I left a mark C/R?
