    Version 1.50 - Added the Stage in which characters learn the said Abilities.

                   information I overlooked.

    ABOUT THIS FAQ
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    This FAQ details the Abilities/Auto-Abilities and their definitions. It also
    lists Abilities by Role, and Characters which have the abilities.
    
    If you were confused about several abilities on characters who don't have
    them, there was a little mix up during my creation of this FAQ that have now
    been resolved. Apologies!
    
    I hope it serves as a quick reference tool for you, and I hope you find what
    you are looking for.

    GENERAL INFORMATION [GNI]
    
    ==============================================================================
    
    Abilities are moves in FFXIII that use AP in various degrees. Ranging from
    one to all.
    
    Auto-abilities refer to moves that are used automatically depending on
    conditions and such. They vary.
    
    Abilities/Auto can be used as infinitely as long as the character is still
    standing. There is no essential "ammo" or "Mana Bar" that drains on usage.
    
    Techniques work slightly different in the sense they can run out, and you
    will be forced to replenish it.
    
    Each character has a special "ultimate" ability.
    
    They are found/gotten in the Crystarium, when leveling up characters.
    
    There is not much else to say about them!

    If you have any suggestions to make the guide better (Add a section/Remove a
    section, information correction, tips, etc.) Please email me, I'd love to
    hear them. My email is below!
    
    I also apprecaite corrections. I am bound to make mistakes, so typos and
    incorrect information are probably all over the place. Constantly correcting
    is what I do so the guide is less of a hindrance.
    
    And if there are no corrections, well a comment is always nice if you feel
    like saying something. :)
    
    I noticed, when proofreading, there were soooo many mistakes! I apologize if
    that threw anyone off... I corrected them now, however. Sorry!
    
    I hope this guide was helpful!
