Intro
====
Well let's see it's been a little while since I contributed any kind of 
FAQ/Guide to Gamefaqs. This guide will be translating the skills characters 
can equip in Tales of Xillia, there was a message board topic for 
translations that myself and a couple other GFAQS users helped out with, but 
I don't think too many people use it anymore. To view the Japanese text you 
need to shift your browser encoding to Shift-JIS.

If you find any errors and such or just want to leave any feedback on 
whether it was helpful or if you want to add anything in you can do so by 
dropping me an e-mail at hanguguikanchop@gmail.com or you can PM my account, 
make sure to include the game title, however if it's any kind of hate mail, 
spam, etc it will be deleted. Now then let's proceed.

====
Version History
====
1.0: All skill categories are completely translated; I might add the Nodes 
in which you can acquire each skill from on the Lilial Orb at a later date.

====
Skills
====
In Tales of Xillia your characters can equip various skills with effects 
ranging from reviving a character when knocked unconscious, to adding on 
extensions at the end of Arts. You earn skills by either finding the 
associated book with them or unlocking them on the Lilial Orb.

I will list the skills by type and will have the name of the skill in both 
Japanese and English while the effect will just be in English. I will also 
list whether or not it's a link skill, its cost to equip, which characters 
can learn it, what book and location if applicable and any remarks for 
additional details or comments.

Please note that the buttons I list in the effects are the default control 
scheme, also my remarks when I say whether or not it's worth equipping a 
skill assumes that you are on your first play through or you decided not to 
buy the All Skills Cost 1 SP in the Grade Shop on your second play through 
or later.

Link: No
Cost: 2
Characters: All
Acquired: Lilial Orb

Link: Yes
Cost: 3

Link: No
Cost: 4
Characters: All
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: It may not be that a high of chance to happen but I would still 
recommend having this skill active on all your characters, there are some 
characters whose HP is kind of low, I'm looking at you Rowan and Elise, more 
so Rowan because for some reason he seemed to always die first even though 
he has a slightly higher HP total than Elise.

Effect: 1% chance for maximum TP to increase by 1% at the end of battle
Link: No
Cost: 5
Characters: All

to the character who has the skill active.

seemed to have happened frequently enough but it was usually only one or two 
characters at a time.

Effect: Able to earn Bonus EXP even if the character does not participate in 
battle.
Link: No
Cost: 1
Characters: All
Acquired: Skill Book [精神参加]
Location: ラコルム街道 (Rakorum Highway)

equipped, you might want to consider equipping it on all characters if you 
like to switch characters in and out of battle which I liked to do.

[メニメニリンク - Many Many Link]
Effect: EXP earned increases based upon how many allies linked with during 
battle.
Link: No
Cost: 3
Characters: All
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Blutorange, one of the users who helped Magnum7979, myself and 
others editing andmoc2's original message board topic for skill translations 
by rewording some translations tested out what the experience increase was, 
here is what he said his rough estimates were: 1 ally: +5%, 2 allies: +7.5%, 
3 allies: +15%, 4 allies: +20%, 5 allies: +25%.

[フィジカルコンバートA - Physical Convert A]

though.

Effect: Magic Defense Power decreased by 25%, Physical Attack Defense 
increased by 25%
Link: No
Cost: 1
Characters: Alvin
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: I'd rather have the Magic Defense be same then decrease it just to 
get an increase in Physical Defense.

[シバルリー - Chivalry]
Effect: Base stats increased depending on how many battle participants are 
female.
Link: No
Cost: 3
Characters: Alvin
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A

he needs as much HP as he can get.

[マジックガード - Magic Guard]
Effect: □+↓ to reduce magic attack damage, barrier will stay up for as long 
as you keep the buttons held 
Link: No
Cost: 3
Characters: All
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: The only thing to say is make sure you're not attacked with a 
physical attack while using Magic Guard as it cancels it.

[オールガード - All Guard]
Effect: Magic Guard also protects against physical attacks
Link: No
Cost: 6
Characters: All
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: I recommend having this skill equipped on everyone although you get 
it relatively late on the 2nd page of the Lilial Orb, this skill prevents a 
physical attack from canceling Magic Guard.

[1ダメージ - 1 Damage]
Effect: All attacks only deal 1 Damage
Link: No
Cost: 1
Characters: All
Acquired: Skill Book [独攻蚊刺]
Location: バイカール廃坑 (Baikaru Abandoned Mine)
Remarks: Obviously good for when you want to do an infinite combo and get a 
ton of bonus exp or if you just want to challenge yourself but that's kind 
of pushing it.

[ステッパー - Stepper]
Effect: Consecutive steps do not consume any AC
Link: No
Cost: 2
Characters: All
Acquired: Lilal Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Recommended equip, normally using consecutive back or front steps 1 
AC is consumed, this negates that.

[コンボメンタルサプライ - Combo Mental Supply]
Effect: Every 9 hits in a combo will recover 1% TP
Link: No
Cost: 4
Characters: All
Acquired: Lilal Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: If you consistently perform high hit combos then equip it, melee 
fighters don't need it so much because a normal physical attack will restore 
some TP anyways. This skill isn't really needed though.

[スプレンダーアサルト - Splendor Assault]
Effect: Using Back Step to successfully avoid an attack on the ground 
increases AC up to a maximum of plus 3.
Link: No
Cost: 5
Characters: All
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: If you're good at using back step to avoid an attack then equip it.

[ムーヴィングアサルト - Moving Assault]
Effect: Pushing L1 changes a normal attack to a sidestep attack
Link: Yes
Cost: 9
Characters: All
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: You can use the analog stick to change which direction you sidestep 
in.

[フラッシュガード - Flash Guard]
Effect: Timing a guard right before an attack reduces damage by 90%, Auto 
guard is excluded.
Link: No
Cost: 2
Characters: All
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: I would suggest to having this equipped and watch an enemy closely 
and guard at the right moment, a 90% reduction of damage is very useful. But 
of course if you don't guard then don't worry about it.

[HPドレインガード - HP Drain Guard]
Effect: A successful Flash Guard recovers 25% HP
Link: Yes
Cost: 3
Characters: Milla, Elise, Rowan
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: If you have Flash Guard equipped then this one should be equipped 
as well if you have the SP for it.

[TPドラインガード - TP Drain Guard]
Effect: A successful Flash Guard recovers 25% TP
Link: Yes
Cost: 3
Characters: Jude, Alvin, Leia
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: You can equip it if you want with Flash Guard equipped as well, but 
seeing as how the characters who have this skill are melee fighters it may 
not be worth the 3 SP.

[ディレイリンクアーツ - Delay Link Arts]
Effect: Doubles the allowed input time for Link Arts
Link: No
Cost: 6
Characters: Jude, Alvin
Acquired: Lilal Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: If the 6 SP it requires is worth it then equip it, personally I 
think there's enough time to link together Link Arts so you don't really 
need the doubled time.

[スライドリンクアーツ - Slide Link Arts]
Effect: Allows the use of Link Arts while chanting a Magic Art or Altered 
Magic Art
Link: Yes
Cost: 6
Characters: Milla, Elise, Rowan, Leia
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Useful in certain situations and you can still use the Link Arts 
after chanting like normal so it doesn't really justify using 6 SP to have 
equipped, unless you have a decent amount of SP available.

[ダウンバースト - Down Burst]
Effect: Increases the damage dealt to a knocked down enemy by 10%
Link: Yes
Cost: 1
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: It only costs 1 SP and enemies that are knocked down receive less 
damage than normal so it might be a good idea to equip it.

[クロスカウンター - Cross Counter]
Effect: Deal 25% more damage while attacking an enemy that is also attacking
Link: No
Cost: 2
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: This is a useful skill especially when attacking bosses when you 
trigger their anti-stagger guard.

[ステップアーマー - Step Armor]
Effect: Attacks do not stagger character during a step (Front/Back)
Link: Yes
Cost: 12
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: I guess it's only useful if you mess up while trying to perform his 
Concentrated Evasion so in my opinion it's not really worth the 12 SP.

[ステップロング - Step Long]
Effect: Front and Back Step distance is extended.
Link: Yes
Cost: 3
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: A matter of opinion on whether or not it should be equipped, a 
longer distance for stepping is always useful in my opinion.

[シャイニングハンド - Shining Hand]
Effect: During Overlimits attack range is extended
Link: No
Cost: 6
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: 6 SP to extend attack range during Overlimits really isn't worth it.

[イミテイションデス - Imitation Death]
Effect: While knocked down holding ↓ recovers 3% HP and TP per second
Link: Yes
Cost: 3
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: I've always felt that this skill was a waste of SP.

[ダッシュ - Dash]
Effect: During battle movement speed is increased by 25%
Link: Yes
Cost: 3
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Jude is already fast enough but the extra movement speed is useful.

[アサルトステップ- Assault Step]
Effect: Allows an attack during Front Step, however if it's a consecutive 
step you can only attack during the first step.
Link: Yes	
Cost: 4
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Slightly useful but I don't think it's that important of Skill to 
equip unless you like ramming into enemies or something.

[コンボボルテージ - Combo Voltage]
Effect: Every 9 hits in a combo will recover 1 AC
Link: Yes
Cost: 3
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Useful against normal enemies but doesn't really help against 
bosses or the Bakyura enemies.

[コンセントレーション - Concentration]
Effect: After successfully avoiding attack with Back Step, for 5 seconds 
after, a successful Guard will initiate Concentrated Evasion; this does not 
mean that using Back Step again will allow the skill effect to last forever
Link: No
Cost: 7
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: It cost a little bit, but it is still useful.

[コンセントレーション2 - Concentration 2]
Effect: Extends the length of Concentration by 3 seconds
Link: No
Cost: 6
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: If you have Concentration equipped then you really should have this 
one as well.

[コンセントレーション3 - Concentration 3]
Effect: Allows Concentrated Evasion to be used during a Front Step
Link: No
Cost: 6
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: I personally never tried timing a Front Step to use his 
Concentrated Evasion, so I'll leave it to your discretion.

[クイックリカバー - Quick Recover]
Effect: Allows the use of Recovering while knocked down
Link: Yes
Cost: 3
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: It's useful to be able to get up immediately after being knocked 
down, though you do suffer less damage while knocked down, but I'd rather 
get no damage than some damage.

[ウィズミラ - With Milla]
Effect: Allows the use of Magic Arts while linked with Milla. 
Majinken → Wind Cutter, Sazanka → Glaive, Eishourai → Aqua Protection, 
Shouteiha → Flare Bomb
Link: No
Cost: 8
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Skill Book [佳人協調]
Location: Prize for clearing Upper Class Party Battle at the Arena in 
シャン・ドゥ(Shan Du) with Jude
Remarks: It's useful if you want to target the enemy weak point even though 
Jude does have some elemental Arts, however I don't really like the fact 
that Eishourai becomes Aqua Protection because you lose the Attack Boost you 
would get from using it. 

[スプレンダークイック - Splendor Quick]
Effect: Successfully avoiding an attack with Back Step increases Movement 
speed and step rate for 8 seconds
Link: Yes
Cost: 7
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Equip the skill if you have the SP for it otherwise I wouldn't 
worry about it.

[セカンドアピール - Second Appeal]
Effect: Changes Appeal movement and recovers 5% TP
Link: No
Cost: 2
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: I never really bothered using Appeal so I don't really know what 
the different taunt movement is, but 5% recovery of TP is always good.

[セカンドアーツ - Second Arts]
Effect: Adds an extension to the Arts Majinken, Chiyukou, Sazanka, and 
Eishourai by holding down the Arts button. 
Majinken → Majinken Souga, Chiyukou → Renki Chiyukou, Sazanka → Sazanka 
Tsuiren, Eishourai → Goushourai
Link: No
Cost: 9
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: It cost 9 SP to equip but it's worth it because it increases the 
effectiveness of the Arts it alters. Also note that Goushorai increases 
defense as well as attack.

[セカンドアーツ2- Second Arts 2]
Effect: Alters the Arts Shouteiha and Hienrenkyaku. 
Shouteiha → Soudou Shouteiha, Hienrenkyaku gains one additional kick.
Link: No
Cost: 7
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: If you've played Tales of Eternia, Tales of the Abyss or Tales of 
Graces then you'll know where Soudou Shouteiha comes from. Soudou Shouteiha 
will only chain after using Shouteiha twice in a row.

[エアリアルフォース - Aerial Force]
Effect: Damage to airborne enemies is increased by 10%
Link: Yes
Cost: 1
Characters: Milla
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: I haven't really determined whether it applies to enemies that are 
knocked in the air or enemies that airborne naturally, but it does only cost 
1 SP so it's not like it's going to break the bank if you equip or not.

[エアリアルガード - Aerial Guard]
Effect: Allows Guarding while in the air
Link: No
Cost: 5
Characters: Milla
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Equipping it depends on how often you guard while you have Milla in 
the air.

[エアリアルジャンプ - Aerial Jump]
Effect: Allows jump to be used once while in the air
Link: Yes
Cost: 4
Characters: Milla
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Self explanatory, I guess it depends on how much you like being in 
the air.

[エアリアルジャンプ2 - Aerial Jump 2]
Effect: Allows jump to be used once more after using Aerial Jump.
Link: No
Cost: 7
Characters: Milla
Acquired: Lilial Orb

Effect: Allows the use of Back Step □+← one time while in the air

[エアリアルダッシュ - Aerial Dash]

Characters: Milla
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A

able to use her Magic Arts like Wind Cutter or Lightning while in the air 
and sometimes those are more useful.

[タッチダウン - Touchdown]
Effect: While in the air using ↓ causes instant landing
Link: No
Cost: 5
Characters: Milla
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: I guess if you're in the air and an enemy is about to attack then 
it might be useful or if you want to follow up immediately with a ground 
combo instead of having to wait to actually land.

[ランディング - Landing]
Effect: Decreases recovery time after landing by 50%
Link: No
Cost: 5
Characters: Milla

in standby
Link: No
Cost: 9
Characters: Milla
Acquired: Lilial Orb

wouldn't to go up to an enemy attack them a couple of times and then unleash 
a spell in their face?

[テンプテーション - Temptation]

Link: Yes

Remarks: None

[ジャンプキャンセル - Jump Cancel]

Link: Yes
Cost: 4
Characters: Milla
Acquired: Lilial Orb

really equipped this skill.

Link: Yes
Cost: 6
Characters: Alvin
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Slight increase to critical rate though I actual haven't bothered 
figuring out what the formula for a critical attack is yet, I suppose any 
increase to critical rate is a plus because it equals more damage.

[クリティカルキープ - Critical Keep]
Effect: During Overlimits all attacks become critical hits
Link: Yes
Cost: 20
Characters: Alvin
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: 20 SP to make all attacks Critical during Overlimits? If you have 
the SP to spare then you can equip it otherwise in relation to how often you 
get to Overlimits I don't really think it's worth using 20 SP when it could 
be used for other skills that would probably be more useful.

increases by 25%
Link: Yes
Cost: 3
Characters: Alvin

Cost: 7
Characters: Alvin
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A

Link: No
Cost: 10
Characters: Alvin
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: This really most useful against the Guard Type enemies because of 
the fact that those types tend to Guard against attacks the most, it still 
is useful to have the skill equipped no matter what enemy it is though.

[チャージブレイカ2 - Charge Breaker 2]
Effect: While Charge is stacked 4 times, all Arts that hit are guaranteed to 
break Anti Stagger guard
Link: No
Cost: 20
Characters: Alvin
Acquired: Skill Book [四重充填]
Location: Prize for clearing Upper Class Party Battle at the Arena in 
シャン・ドゥ(Shan Du) with Alvin
Remarks: This is probably most useful against bosses because of their Anti-
Stagger guard, however it doesn't seem to work against the Bakyura enemies. 
I would just equip when you're about to fight a boss because 20 SP is way 
too much when not every enemy has an Anti-Stagger Guard.

[チャージキープ - Charge Keep]
Effect: Preserves Charge even if an attack misses
Link: No
Cost: 4
Characters: Alvin
Acquired: Lilial Orb

Effect: After successfully avoiding an attack with Back Step the next action 
used is a guaranteed critical

Link: No
Cost: 5
Characters: Elise

her Techniques in a Link Art with another character.

[ウィザード - Wizard]
Effect: With Tipo ON active, Arts effectiveness increases by 1.5
Link: No
Cost: 5

Cost: 4

for 3 seconds

Cost: 16
Characters: Rowan
Acquired: Lilial Orb

Cost: 3
Characters: Leia

some of the better materials like Dragon Ash and Strange Cores.

[ムーヴドアーマー - Moved Armor]
Effect: Cannot be staggered by attacks while using Free Run
Link: Yes
Cost: 20
Characters: Leia

Effect: Removes recovery time after using an item
Link: Yes
Cost: 7
Characters: Leia

Link: No
Cost: 10
Characters: All
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Same thing applies here as it did for Revival Energy HP instead of

equipped, though if you don't have the SP I would say don't bother equipping 
this one as HP is far more important.

Cost: 8

Soldier Research Facility 10F Hallway, Aifreed Treasure)
Remarks: This skill basically sustains Overlimits for a very short period of

end of Overlimits and then still be able to perform your Hi-Ougi because 
Overlimits will not have ended yet.

Link: Yes
Cost: 30
Characters: Jude
Acquired: Skill Book [踏地不屈]
Location: Defeat the Golden Knight in マグナ・ゼロ(Magna Zero)
Remarks: Arguably the best skill in the whole game, essentially you get an 
Anti-Stagger guard like bosses while you're on the ground and whoever is 
linked with Jude gets the same effect, however the high cost is its major 
drawback. You can't access Magna Zero until clearing the game and you also 
need to have all the Demon Arms plus defeating the Golden Knight is no joke 
unless you have the proper equipment.

[レストアプラス - Restore Plus]
Effect: Increases the probability of reviving a knocked out partner with 
Restore by 20% up to a max of 70%
Link: No
Cost: 5

[エアリアルアーマー - Aerial Armor]

Elemental Arts and Techniques that are in this game.

Link: No
Cost: 3
Characters: Milla
Acquired: Skill Book [精神防壁]

Aifreed Treasure)

to expend on Arts and Techniques.

Fireball → Flare Bomb
Link: No
Cost: 3

stagger.

however you need to have the original cost of TP to be able to use them
Link: No
Cost: 10
Characters: Milla
Acquired: Lilial Orb

Remarks: You need to have the original cost in TP to be able to use the Arts, 
e.g. Burn Spirit requires 30 TP to cast but you only have 25 TP, you won't 
be able to cast it for 15 TP because you need to have the full 30 TP. The 
skill is only applied once you cast/use the Arts.

[リンクスラッシャー - Link Slasher]
Effect: Prevents Link Encounters
Link: No
Cost: 2
Characters: Alvin
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Link encounters are when you have more than one enemy in close 
proximity to each other on the field and you engage in battle, this skill 
prevents the Link Encounter so you end up only fighting one group of enemies 
instead of two or three.

really runs away?

on how many times Healing Arts were used in battle

Cost: 5
Characters: Elise
Acquired: Skill Book [治療経験]
Location: リーベリー岩孔第01区画 アイフリード秘宝 
(Liberi Cliff Block 1 -Aifreed Treasure)

level her up.

[クローストゥギャサー - Close Together]
Effect: Always keeps Tipo ON state active
Link: No
Cost: 1
Characters: Elise
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Recommended to be used with her Wizard 1 and Wizard 2 skills, 
personally I like switching between Tipo ON and Tipo OFF so I never had this 
skill equipped.

[オートメディスン - Auto Medicine]
Effect: When receiving damage there is a 15% chance to automatically recover 
HP with a Healing Art
Link: Yes
Cost: 6
Characters: Elise
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: The HP recovery is instantaneous so it's like using an item.

[オートメディスン2 - Auto Medicine 2]
Effect: When inflicted with a status abnormality there is a 30% chance to 
automatically remove it
Link: Yes
Cost: 5
Characters: Elise
Acquired: Lilial Orb

let me know.

[リコール - Recall]
Effect: 40% chance to automatically be revived after being knocked 
unconscious, limited to once per battle
Link: No
Cost: 8

Acquired: Lilial Orb

should always be equipped.

[エンジェルリコール - Angel Recall]
Effect: 100% Chance to automatically be revived after being knocked 
unconscious, limited to once per battle
Link: No
Cost: 15
Characters: Elise
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Despite its cost at 15 SP, I always have this skill equipped along 
with Recall and if you cast Revive on her you have three chances to be 
automatically revived.

[リンクTPサポート - Link TP Support]
Effect: When linked as the Slave 50% of TP is consumed from the Master
Link: No
Cost: 10
Characters: Elise
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: This skill enables Elise to share the TP cost of skills with 
whomever she's linked with only if she's being controlled by the AI, e.g. 
Revere Ignition consumes 30 TP but if she's linked with someone then it will 
consume 15 TP from her and the other 15 will be consumed by whomever she's 
linked with. I don't know if the skill applies when another person is 
controlling her though.

[スペルキープ - Spell Keep]
Effect: If interrupted while casting a spell, using the same one again 
afterwards will continue casting from where it was stopped
Link: No
Cost: 3
Characters: Rowan
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: If Rowan is halfway through casting Divine Streak and he gets 
interrupted by either guarding or an attack, when he goes to cast Divine 
Streak again it will continue from the halfway point instead of at the 
beginning.

[リダクション - Reduction]
Effect: Casting the same spell again reduces TP consumption by 50%
Link: No
Cost: 3
Characters: Rowan
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: I believe the 50% TP reduction only applies to using it twice, any 
successive use of the same spell will just cast it at the cost of using it a 
second time, if anyone can confirm this please let me know.

[スペルラッキー - Spell Lucky]
Effect: 10% chance a spell will consume 0 TP when casting
Link: No
Cost: 3
Characters: Rowan
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Equip it even though Rowan usually has enough TP to cast all his 
spells it still helps if occasionally a spell doesn't cost anything to use.

[ヘヴィマジック - Heavy Magic]
Effect: Casting a spell consumes 30% more TP in exchange for 50% more damage 
inflicted
Link: No
Cost: 5
Characters: Rowan
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: Unlike in Tales of Vesperia where it increases the casting time 
this only increases the amount of TP consumed, if you are going to equip 
this skill equip an accessory like an Emerald Ring or a Fairy Ring to negate 
the increase of TP consumption.

[ライトマジック - Light Magic]
Effect: Casting a spell consumes 50% less TP in exchange for 30% less damage 
inflicted
Link: No
Cost: 5
Characters: Rowan
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: I don't think there is anything that can negate the loss of damage 
dealt, though this skill is probably best equipped when you want to use 
Rowan to do an infinite combo using Splash.

[グライス - Grace]
Effect: Prevents being staggered by attacks while casting a spell
Link: Yes
Cost: 22
Characters: Rowan
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: His best skill even though it does cost 22 SP I still tried to have 
enough to equip it, link him with another magic user like Elise and let the 
AI control both because then they would actually cast spells.

and healing related magic
Link: No
Cost: 7
Characters: Rowan
Acquired: Skill Book [総術拒絶]

[コンダクター - Conductor]
Effect: Removes the TP consumption of spells after using Tuning
Link: No
Cost: 3
Characters: Rowan
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A 
Remarks: Half the amount of TP normally used to cast any spell is consumed 
one time to initiate Tuning; this skill will remove that cost so you don't 
consume any additional TP.

[コンダクター2 - Conductor 2]
Effect: Prevents being staggered by attacks while performing Tuning
Link: No
Cost: 5
Characters: Rowan
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: It helps Rowan get the most out of using Tuning without being

50%

weakness.

Cost: 3
Characters: Leia

Effect: 25% chance Gald earned after battle is doubled
Link: No
Cost: 4
Characters: Leia
Acquired: Lilial Orb

Link: Yes
Cost: 5
Characters: Leia

still useful to have this skill equipped.

Link: No
Cost: 2
Characters: Leia
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: This effect will also stack with the Monocle or Hunter's Monocle

[ホーリィ&ダークブレス - Holy & Dark Breath]
Effect: Doubles the duration of Holy Bottle and Dark Bottle effect
Link: No
Cost: 1
Characters: Leia
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A
Remarks: I guess it's useful if you're trying to level up or if you just 
want to pass through an area without fighting anything.

[サクリファイス - Sacrifice]
Effect: When Leia is linked as the Slave, when the Master is knocked 
unconscious, Leia will exchange all of her own HP and TP to revive the 
Master.
Link: No
Cost: 12
Characters: Leia
Acquired: Skill Book [懸命援助]
Location: Prize for clearing Upper Class Single Battle at the Arena in 
シャン・ドゥ(Shan Du) with Leia
Remarks: When the skill is used the Master is only revived with how much 
remaining HP and TP Leia had at the time, so if she only had 134 HP and 7 TP 
then the Master would be revived with that amount restored.

[ラッキーアイテム - Lucky Item]
Effect: 10% chance that an item will not be consumed when used
Link: Yes
Cost: 2
Characters: Leia
Acquired: Lilial Orb
Location: N/A

all times.

but the recovery effect is halved
Link: Yes
Cost: 13
Characters: Leia

Elixir but it will restore 50% of Max HP and TP instead of 100%.

[トレジャーファング - Treasure Fang]
Effect: When escaping from battle there is a fixed probability that Leia 
will steal an item.
Link: No
Cost: 2
Characters: Leia
Acquired: Lilial Orb

ran away from battles either.
