================================INTRODUCTION=================================

This little guide lists the gem, skills, magic and techniques in the game.
Since the gem inventory is limited(last I checked, mine was written at 63,
but I am not sure whether that will change), this list is definitely not yet
complete as I have got a bad habit of selling gems I don't need the moment I
get it, and so the information I have here is restricted by what I have and
can find. Hopefully I will be able to add more as far as time and effort
allow for.

|COMBINING GEMS AND SKILLS PLATES SYSTEM                              [CGL1]|
*****************************************************************************

NOTE: I transferred this small section from my walkthrough faq over to here
because it falls under the same category of gems and skill plates, plus
the Japanese characters added in are(hopefully) going to make the
explanations less confusing.

I realize that there will always be questions asking how such things work, 
even after reading the software manual, so I'll do some explanations here.

--->Gems

Equipping gems will increase various stats or give you certain bonuses such
as increased chances of critical hits, reduced magic/physical dmg incurred and
so on. You'll have to look at the descriptions at the bottom of the screen
(press Square button to select the bonus) to know what they do. Bonuses with
a number beside them represent bonuses that can be accumulated(in other
words, increase their levels), highest level in most cases being 9. To
increase the levels, you'll need to have other gems with the same bonuses.
I'll give an easy example below:

(1)a gem with Attack3(攻撃3) in slot 2 and Stamina2(体力2) in slot 3

Attack(攻撃) and Stamina(体力) are what I mention as bonuses above. Here,
this gem has a level 3 Attack and level 2 Stamina bonus. 

(2)a gem with Barrier1(阻壁1) in slot 1 and Attack1(攻撃1) in slot 2

(3)a gem with Defense1(防御1) in slot 1, Attack1(攻撃1) in slot 2 and
Magic strength1(魔力1) in slot 4

To increase the effect of Attack, we will combine (1) and (2), after impact
occurs(during battles or using the impact drug) on the gem combination board,
we will have:

(4) a gem with slot 1:Barrier1(阻壁1), slot 2:Attack 4(攻撃4) and slot 3:
Stamina2(体力2)

To further add on to the bonuses, we will combine (4) with (3), however, the
slots 1 for both gems are occupied and yet with different bonuses(barrier and
protect, you can only combine similar ones) and so we cannot combine the gem
normally as each gem can only have 1 bonus type in each slot, therefore if we
forcefully combine the 2 gems, we will get a gem with EITHER barrier1 OR
defense1 in slot 1, Attack 5 in slot2, stamina2 in slot 3 and magic strength1
in slot 4 and whichever slot 1 bonus that is not brought over is gone for
good.

To avoid that, we can first divide gem 3(by using the gem dividing drug) to
remove the Protect1 bonus and we will obtain:

(5)gem with Defense1(防御1) in slot 1

AND

(6)another gem with Attack1(攻撃1) in slot 2 and magic strength1(魔力1) in
slot 4

With this, we can combine (6) and (4) and use (5) to combine with another gem
that has the Defense bonus. We can repeat this process until we get a final
gem with Attack9 and continue to do the same for the other bonuses.

Every gem has 4 slots. However, take note that the Attack bonus will always
take up the 2nd slot in any gems and the Stamina bonus always in the 3rd slot
and so on, meaning positions are fixed(Refer to my gem bonus list in this
guide). The idea is to divide and combine gems with 4 desired bonuses that
you want your characters to have. Each character can equip 2 gems. Bonuses
with no accompanying numbers cannot be accumulated. Try various combinations
and keep experimenting. You can't get something wrong till there's no going
back, so long as you have enough impact(インパクト薬) and gem dividing drug
(ジェム分解薬) with you.

One thing to take note is that you must place your gems in the correct
columns (additional gem or main gem), no matter what bonus level of the
additional gem is, it will only add on ONE(1) level to the main gem bonus, 
e.g: putting Attack6 gem in the additional gem column and Attack2 in the main
gem column, the level of the bonus after combination will become
Attack3(1 level from additional + 2 levels in main), but if you place it the
other way round, the result will be Attack7(1 level from additional + 6 levels
in main).

For jewels such as emerald, ruby and so on. You can combine them together or
combine with a gem to get various items(e.g: gale apple) and various gem
effects(e.g: increasing the level of a gem bonus). You have to try this out
for yourself because there are plenty of obtainable combinations and they are
really random.


--->Skill plate system

The skill plate system is similar to the one in Growlanser V, perhaps only
more balanced and easier to manipulate for those who can't understand the
logic behind it, since this time round there are 2 flow paths instead of 1.

Press the Square button bring up the ability tree and you can attach plates to
the empty blocks to learn techniques, abilities and magic. The flow positions
will change depending on what weapon and armor you are equipping(if the flow
path color of your weapon and armor is the same, they will get combined in 1).
I'm never an expert in laying out the plates in the most efficient way and
never bothered to do so nor read the tutorial and so on, but I seriously don't
understand how can anyone make the wrong moves with this system unless they
completely don't understand how the thing work at all.

Therefore I will give a suggestion and that is: to always check out your
existing learning progress of the attached skill plates BEFORE equipping new
available weapon+armor BEFORE attaching new plates. Remember and do these 3
steps, and you'll have no more problems...and hopefully no complaints as well.

You can only get ONE(1) plate of each magic/technique/ability from your
weapon/armor. Example: you can only get 1 Fire Arrow plate, and once obtained,
you won't get another(even by using any manuals/scrolls), it is fixed, so feel
free to replace your equipment with something else once you have gotten 1 of
each skill an equipped weapon/armor gave.

When a plate has reached Level 5(the highest level for 1 plate), it will
remain and never drop(of course unless you remove the plate from the tree).
The bonus here is via the flow paths, if there is 1 flow path flowing through
a maximum Level 5 plate. 1 level is being added.

E.g: Both flow paths are flowing through a LV 5 Fire Arrow plate, the level
will become 5 + 2(2 flow paths) = 7

In other words, by right it is impossible to reach the maximum skill level 9.
In this case here, you will have to get the special item [Limit Removal]
(限定解除) and using it will do just what the name says: remove the 1 plate
limit and give you a 2nd plate for the particular one you chose to
replicate. The item itself is pretty rare in the main game, but you can get
it via participating in the Coliseum. And please don't come telling me how
it's ridiculous that you can only obtain the item in the later parts of the
game because...this IS an RPG and and do you expect them to give you your
1st/highest level items at the early parts of the game? Well, that aside
though, I can assure you that beating the main game without using any limit
removals is more than possible.

Due to all the above, this system only requires you to use a lil bit of your
brain to place the plates because whether you have a flow path through the
completed level 5 plates or not, you will still need a 2nd plate to reach the
maximum. Of course, by all means set it up however you want it to be using
the items available which can change and divide flow paths.

Q: I get weird symbols all over this guide.
A: You will need to change your browser encoding to Shift-JIS.

Q: What does the various enchant gems do?
A: You combine them together to get gems(if you notice, some gems have
two colored circles showing something like: O+O), when combining with
common gems, you get random effects(which are listed in the description for
each type of enchant gem).

Q: What does the characteristic of the enchant gems have to do with the
combination effects?
A: If you look over the common gem list, you will realize that slot 1 has
more physical strengthening abilities while slot 4 has more of magic/spell
related abilities. Though you can combine any type of enchant gem with most
types of common gems, if you are aiming to strengthen/level up a 3rd slot
bonus, you should combine with Turquoise to increase your chances. Same
thing goes for the rest.

Q: Where can I obtain enchant gems?
A: The Coliseum tug battle Sheriltia match gives 1 of each enchant gem.
Enemies drop them as well. Sometimes random enchant+common gem combinations
will create another enchant gem but that is no doubt pointless. The randomly
generated treasure chests in the optional dungeon will also give you some but
don't count on that unless you have a lot of free time to meddle around in
the dungeon.

Q: What does the crap Ivaldi etc do!?
A: I don't know. Okay okay, I spent 15 minutes testing them out and
discovered that Ivaldi allows my character to deal a higher attack to the
enemy. Ord-leril a higher magic damage and the Silver emblem increase mgc
defense for all elements(this one is obvious). All those I already wrote
under the description in my list. Apparently it's not just that though. After
doing much searching, I finally found a place which explains the effects of
the 3 abilities:

***IMPORTANT NOTE: All words within the [[ ]] brackets below are my
translation of the information I found on 35.atwiki.jp and NO part of it
is mine. ALL credit should be given to the poster of the info***

[[ -START-

   Ivaldi: Critical rate+30%, Rigidity time to enemy+10%, enemy's resistance
   to faint-1, 10% of weapon dmg dealt to enemy recover back to self

   Ord-leril: Magic strength+30, Magic range+20%, 10% of magic dmg dealt to
   enemy recover back to self

   Silver emblem: All mgc resistance+1, faint guard+1, 75% chance of all
   bad status(apart from fallen) void, weapon+magic dmg received-30%
                                                                     -END- ]]

I won't be testing it out(since most of the effects are "invisible") unless
specifically requested but hopefully this little note will help clear some
doubts.

Q: I spot some errors.
A: Since I'm writing all info on paper and using them as the basis while
typing this faq, there are cases where my eyes(and my handwriting) may fail
me. Therefore, please do inform me via email so I can make the necessary
corrections.
