-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a list of what skills and who has them in Radiata Stories. 
Skills are aquired by fighting battles while using link attacks with party 
member who have skills you do not know. You can only equip one skill at a time
but you can switch them during battle. Also note while using a link all members
of the link share their equipped skill. Skill also carry over when you select 
Strong from Start option when starting a new game.
Since links are used in acquiring skills I will also list all of them and what
they do.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-Skills------------------------------------------------------------------------
To learn new skills you need to have a party member with a skill you do not 
know and fight 15 battles with them using a link during those battles. You do 
not have to score a kill just make the link and win the battle. You could make
a link and break it and it will count toward you getting the new skill.

Skills level up by fighting battles. Skills have a stronger effect when they 
have more stars. Only the last skill equipped in battle gets credit for level
up. The number of battles needed to raise to the next level are as follows. 
1 star-->2 stars is 7 battles.
2 stars-->3 stars is 9 battles.
3 stars-->4 stars is 11 battles.
4 stars-->5 stars is 13 battles. 
5 stars is the maximum level of a skill.

The first skill list is the non-spoiler list. Only list possible characters on
first playthru prior to the split. Note, some skills will not be possible to
obtain at this point of the game.

-Skill list after split--------------------------------------------------------
Note before continueing, splitting by sides some skills will have spoilers. 
Pre split list is good for knowing what skills you should learn before the 
split as some skills will become unavailable after the split.

Skills lost by split. Skills to learn before split. Also I list what skills are
unavailable to what sides.

This is end of guide if spoilers bother you. But I only name the skills and not
the people who have them. So it's minor spoiler. Major would be the skill list
itself which is after the mentioned skills.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-Link Attacks------------------------------------------------------------------
You must fight battles using links to learn new skills. Here are the different 
links you can learn. You gain new links by usings the ones you do know in 
combat. You can only use links when you assigned one to a directional button,
have 3 or more party members that do not have bad status effects on them, have
10 or more VP, and Jack is the leader of the party and does not have a negative
status effect on him as well.
Links are broken when you have 0 VP, someone in the link gets a status effect,
someone in the link dies, or take a lot of damage quickly.
Note while using a link, it disables the abilty to give commands, use items,
and open the menu screen via the triangle button. Another thing to know is 
making a link will cancel commands given out before the link. 

Following are the list of links in the order you aquire them and a description
for the link.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Box Link - The party forms a diamond shape and beats on a single foe. Attack 
when ! appears above the party members' heads. Surround an enemy and then you 
should see the signal that attack is ready.

Wave Link - Allies follow the leader's movements and attack the foe in a 
wave-like formation. Increases speed of party. This one is sorta of hard to set
up well offensively. Pretty much to use that way you need people with fast 
attacks and no knockdown or back skills unless the last person. Primarily used
for running away and regrouping.

Line Link - The party forms a line and forces a wave of power onto the foe.
Must be in a straight line to preform the attack. Cost 6 VP per attack. This
link gives you a ranged attacked but is costly to use and slightly difficult
to move around in. Sometimes moving party members don't line up properly and
the attack never goes off only regular swings.

Guard Link - Allies box in and protect the leader from attacks. Defense 
increases for all and a barrier appears when parrying.

Circle Link - When allies stop movement, all get together to form a circle in 
which HP is restored. A defensive link. Note you can't attack while using this.
Also parrying stops the healing process.

Wide Link - The party forms a line and each ally forces a wave of power onto 
the foe. Each attack cost 1 VP. Similar to line link except they all fire in 
different directions and line up on after another instead of side by side. 
This link doesn't require allies to be in order for the attack to go off. Note
that pressing the attack button makes 3 attacks per party member. The easiest 
link to use in my opinion.

Arrow Link - Allies form a "V" to charge the foe. The party can only move 
straight and cannot make sudden stops. VP deceases as the party crashes into a 
target.

Kamikaze Link - With a signal, the allies increase in strength and throw 
themselves at the foe. An explosion follows, causing damage to allies as well.

Square Link - The party forms a diamond shape and does a spinning tornado 
attack. Each attack cost 10 VP. Note allies must be in formation for this 
attack to go off correctly.

Attack Link - Allies line up behind the leader, and as the leader attacks a 
foe, the allies begin a concentrated attack. A strictly offensive link. You 
cannot parry but can backstep while using this link. One of the easiest link
to use. Just attack and everyone rushes the same target, note allies only 
attack if you do. Only lose VP when getting hit.
