[INTRODUCTION]
Since there have been requests for a gem and skills/techniques/spell
listing, here it is. As with all my faqs, I take information from my own
play through the games, in other words, all gems and corresponding
skills/magic/techniques listed here are the ones in my game inventory. As I
obtain more, I will update them here.

Q: I see #@$% everywhere.
A: If so, you will need to change your browser encoding to Shift-JIS.

Q: How do I obtain the <insert name> gem?
A: From stores, dungeon chest items as well as from enemies. Enemies DON'T
give/drop a fixed type of gem so it is impossible to keep track of the items
they can give(i.e sometimes they drop a gem, sometimes a ring or recovery 
item and so on, it is random). Peyton's shop provides gems up till level 8(as
you progress through the game, he will have them in his stock). For level 9
gems, you will have more chances getting them(by luck) via the optional
dungeon and the Colosseum.

Q: How do I steal an item?
A: Learn the Steal ability, use Rems' Trick Prey ability(random) or use an
Alsorb bell(works for sure).

Q: What is this rank thing about the Lucky symbol?
A: Using the Lucky symbol will increase the rank of the item you can obtain
from an enemy. The highest is 24. Of course it is impossible to use 24
symbols on an enemy when the highest amount you can have is 9. The gist is to
look for stronger enemies(who will give higher rank drops) and use the lucky
symbols on them to increase the rank of the items you can get.

Q: What are the combination of gems that you recommend for the characters?
A: You start off with learning the necessary skills for each character. Once
that is done, you can feel free to remove and equip gems as according to
your preferences and needs in battles. A short list of what I usually have
my characters equip(if I'm using them) once they finish learning all the
desired skills:
Crevaniel: Skill effect+3, Killer blow -advanced-/MOV UP+3, Shorten all
rigidity time+3
Rems: Teleport wings, Skill effect+3, Killer blow -advanced-
Frane: Multiple magic casting+3, Angel's secret, Magic strength+3
Eraiza: Multiple magic casting+3, MOV UP+3, Magic strength+3
Hien: MOV UP+3, Shorten all rigidity time+3, Skill effect+3
Leona: MOV UP+3 , Shorten all rigidity time+3, Skill effect+3
Vallery: Transport wings/Indirect range UP, Shorten all rigidity time+3,
Skill effect+3
Regiena: Transport wings/Indirect range UP, Shorten all rigidity time+3,
Skill effect+3

From the above, you should be able to spot a pattern: I like to use
Shorten rigidity gem+3 and Skill effect+3. With this 2 gems, Crevaniel will
be able to have around 16 ATW which made things easier, at least for me
using my battle style+strategy. Same goes for the others, especially with
characters like Leona, Vallery and Regiena who have VERY slow ATW movement.
Since the Skill effect gem boosts ALL of the learnt skills(things like HP 
UP, MOV UP, MP UP and so on), it is a very good gem.

Q: What is the difference between Shorten all rigidity time and the skills
Shorten item rigidity time/Shorten attack rigidity time?
A: Your ATW stat represents the attack rigidity period, in other words the
time period you will have to wait after the character attack an enemy and
before he/she attack again. This would mean that the Shorten item ATW won't
affect it while the Shorten attack ATW will. And since the description for
the Shorten ATW gem is written as all -20%, it would affect your ATW stat.

Q: Does the Physical resistance down gem lower an enemy's defense?
A: No. A unit's defense against weapon based attacks is determined by the
DEF stat. The physical resistance the gem was referring to is the magic
Physical element: 物 of which spells like Cycle down, bind, fear etc belongs
to. Same thing goes for the Spirit element which is represented by 精(spells
such as Death, MP drain etc). Therefore, you will be using the physical
resistance gem to attack an enemy to bring the Physical element rank down
which will in turn increase the chance of him/her/it being afflicted should
you cast a Physical element spell.

Q: Your translations are bleh.
A: Unlike scripts or conversations, I like to use more of a word-for-word 
style since that sticks to the original except special cases, e.g: 全周囲攻撃
as All-round attack(I take it from the word: all- rounder) a.k.a attacking
all in the  surrounding range. So basically, if you are unhappy with my
translation style and would like to give me some constructive advice or
suggestions, I welcome them, do drop me a mail.
