    1) [Introduction]
    
    Welcome to skill binding in the world of Jeanne D'arc! The following 
    guide is designed to provide you with anything and everything you need 
    to begin combining the meager skills that you have into the death 
    dealing skills that you want. Enjoy!

    2) [About the Author]
    
    I've been using guides posted on GameFAQ's for as long as I can 
    remember, probably a solid eight years at the least, and while I've 
    considered contributing something more than once I hadn't, until now, 
    actually done so. When I began writing down skill combinations for my 
    own purposes and found shortly that I had quite a bit of data, I 
    decided that now was the time. I only hope that people will benefit 
    from this guide in the way that I have benefited from so many others. 
    
    ...............................................................................
    
    3) [Basics of Skill Stones]
    
    Skill stones are the bread and butter of Jeanne D'arc's battle system. 
    Everything your warriors are capable of, save basic attacks and 
    transformations, is the result of an equipped skill stone. These little 
    beauties come in four varieties, each with its own unique color and 
    purpose.
    
        --------------------
        Coup de Grace Stones
        -------------------- 
    
    Coup de Grace stones are red and, as the French suggests, provide your 
    characters with powerful finishing blow techniques that cause large 
    amounts of damage for the cost of a given amount of MP. Depending on 
    your play style, Coup de Graces may well make up the bulk of your 
    attacks. Just remember to balance the MP cost against your character's 
    total mana. Coup de Grace skills are individual to the type of weapon 
    they call for, and entries within this guide are broken up by weapon 
    for your convenience.
    
        -------------------
        Innate Skill Stones
        -------------------
    
    Innate Ability stones are purple, and of all the stones these are the 
    least common. Innate stones provide characters with certain constant 
    abilities, such as the ability to counter an incoming attack, or a 
    certain recklessness that increases attack power at the cost of 
    defense, and a well-placed innate stone can be deadly. As with the Coup 
    de Grace stones, innate stones are individual to the type of weapon 
    they call for.
    
        ------------
        Magic Stones
        ------------
    
    Magic stones are green, and provide characters with a range of spells 
    for damage, healing, and support. It takes a high magic attack stat to 
    make the most of a magic stone, but keep in mind also that magic 
    attacks offer some of the only range attacks for melee characters, and 
    it can be useful to have a fireball or thunderbolt on your warriors 
    even if their magic attack isn't that high. After all, some damage is 
    better than none. 
    
        ----------------
        Statistic Stones
        ----------------
    
    Stat Boost stones are blue, and probably the most numerous of the skill 
    stones. As I'm sure you can guess stat stones provide your characters 
    with boosts to specific stats such as attack or defense, but they can 
    also provide useful bonuses such as recovering HP at the beginning of 
    each turn, or increasing a character's damage against a specific type 
    of opponent. While stat stones may seem the most lack luster, since 
    they don't provide characters with a fancy new attack, it would be 
    unwise to ignore the benefits of some of the boosts they provide. 
    There's never anything wrong with regenerating 30% of your total HP at 
    the beginning of each turn.
    
    ...............................................................................
    
    4) [Basics of Skill Binding]
    
    Skill Binding becomes available to players after completing stage nine 
    or ten, I can't remember for sure and if I'm off by a stage or so I 
    apologize. In any case, skill binding is, quite simply, the process of 
    combining two skill stones into a single, new stone. In terms of the 
    story this process is handled by the bizarre Cuisses the frog, who for 
    some reason enjoys eating skill stones, only to spit out a new one 
    seconds later. For players, skill binding is the key to insuring that 
    your characters are equipped with your favorite attacks and abilities. 
    
        ----------------
        Important Notes: 
        ----------------
    
    Skill binding is a very consumptive process. You are, after all, 
    getting one stone for the price of two, and if you chain together 
    several combinations to reach a higher level stone you may very well 
    expend 6 or more stones in the pursuit of a single ability. Never 
    combine so many stones that you use up your base. The few skill stones 
    that you can purchase in shops are not cheap, and the only other way to 
    get them is to pilfer from defeated foes. Replacing used stones can be 
    a time consuming process, and it's better for all of your characters to 
    be equipped than for one or two of them to be godly.
    
              ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
              Always save before tinkering with your skill stones!

    Skill stone entries are broken up by variety and, as mentioned 
    previously, Coup de Grace and Innate skills are further broken up by 
    weapon type. Each entry includes the skill's name, the required level 
    for use, MP cost if applicable, and a brief description of the skill, 
    followed by the skill binding formulas used to create it. As an 
    example:

    9) [Missing Stones]
    
    None. At least, I don't think I'm missing any at this point.

    10) [Frequently Asked Questions]
    
        [Question]
    
    Why can't I combine some of my skills, even though they appear in the 
    skill list? 
    
        [Answer]
    
    Skill stones have to be unequipped in order to combine. Also, certain 
    high level skills simply aren't combinable with anything.
    
        [Question]
    
    Where can I get more stones for use in combining?
    
        [Answer]
    
    Very basic stones like fireball and ice bullet, or hp 20 and mp 10 can 
    be purchased from shops, but as far as I've found it seems the only 
    real way to stock up on stones is to participate in free battles. You 
    should make a habit of going back every couple of levels and checking 
    the free battle stages to see what kinds of stones are available. 
    
        [Question]
    
    Are there certain stones that you would recommend collecting?
    
        [Answer]
    
    Sol and Luna Spirit stones are virtually essential, as they're 
    responsible for creating the attack, magic attack, HP and MP stat 
    stones. Additionally, Crescent Arc and Wood Chop are used in many early 
    combinations.

    11) [Special Thanks]
    
    Special thanks to Vagish for his praise, and for his many wonderful formatting
    suggestions. Much appreciated.
    
    Much thanks goes out to Hearts235 for submitting a hefty list of alternate
    combinations, as well as several initial. His willingness to share his 
    findings is much appreciated.
    
    Special thanks to EnderX_19 for submitting some additional, alternates
    
    Special thanks to Ragura for submitting some alternates as well as the inital 
    combo for Stun Whip. I knew I should have tried harder to get a tail whip skill 
    from the dragons...
    
    Thanks to Dado_Up who, after borrowing some formulas from my guide sent me his
    complete version, which I used to double check my own work and to fill in the
    last of the missing alternate combinations.
    
    Thanks to Chatoic_Fusion for taking on the task of writing a Walkthrough for 
    this amazing game. I didn't look too closely at if because I didn't want to 
    spoil anything, but I applaud his hard work.
    
    Special thanks to Gamefaqs for publishing this drival.
    
    And, of course, thanks to all readers and everyone out there playing video 
    games.
