    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Welcome to the new and improved Yuri FAQ! While before this FAQ was not much
    more than simple guidelines and recommendations to play Yuri slightly more
    effectively with stupid jokes about how much of a badass Yuri is (and make no
    mistake--Yuri is still a badass), this new FAQ will try to be as exhaustive as
    possible, including a full Skill and Arte list (with Japanese names for those
    who are not playing using a translation), added strategies, titles, and so much
    more.
    
    This guide is exclusively made for the Japanese PS3 version. Unfortunately,
    Bandai Namco never decided to localize this version and went on ahead to
    localize other games in the series. I think one day we will see Vesperia PS3 in
    one form or another localized officially, as we did recently have Tales of
    Symphonia: Chronicles give westerners an official localizations of the PS2
    version of Symphonia.
    
    However, fans have taken it upon themselves to translate the game in Bandai
    Namco's stead, and the translators in question have created a website with all
    of their translations. If you're interested, here it is:
    
    http://hyouta.com/vesperia/
    
    (Go check it out! It's super amazing!)
    
    This guide will be using the translations offered by this website, such as
    "Angel's Crest" for Yuri's second Mystic Arte, Tenshou Kouyokuken
    (螟ゥ鄙泌?鄙シ蜑」).
    This guide will also include the original Japanese names for artes and skills
    and such, along with Romanji for artes in case they don't suit your fancy.
    
    Overall, while this FAQ will still be pretty general in nature, this version of
    the FAQ will try to be as exhaustive as possible.

         3: VERSION HISTORY                                                  [VERSI]
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Version 1.0 : The FAQ is finished. All original features are included, FAQ is
                  subject to change.
    
    Version 1.5 : I changed some things, namely the altered artes chart, and added
                  some sections. Nothing TOO big, but big enough to warrant a .5
                  update rather than a .1 update.
    
    Version 1.6 : I changed my email address, because bots have been attacking the
                  Yahoo! one... and, it seems that Tales of Vesperia is going to be
                  released for the PS3! Well, I'll update my FAQ when I learn
                  (or play) the PS3 version because it seems that Yuri is going to
                  get a new Mystic Arte, and possibly new equipment, skills, and
                  other stuff. I won't ignore the PS3 users. :)
    
    Version 1.7 : The video example has been replaced by a nice, spoiler-free video.
                  I fixed a few mistakes on my part, and stuff.
    
    Version 2.0 : A lot of stuff has been re-written, and the PS3 extras have been
                  added in to this version of the guide.
    
    Version 3.0 : A complete overhaul of the FAQ. The artes list and skill list were
                  completely revamped, removing the dumb humour while adding a ton
                  of new, relevant information.
    
    Version 3.1 : Fixed some formatting errors, and hopefully the Japanese shows up
                  correctly.
    
    Version 3.2 : The previous version's Japanese didn't show up correctly at all,
                  unfortunately. Hopefully this resubmission will fix any errors.
                  I've also added another section to the guide that might be
                  important.

    Name    : Yuri Lowell
    Sex     : Male
    Hair    : Black
    Eyes    : Black
    Age     : 21
    Height  : 180 cm (5 feet 11 inches)
    Weapons : Swords, Axes
    Sub     : Gauntlets
    Armor   : Mails
    Helms   : Helmets, Hats
    Food?   : Sweets
    
    Yuri is your average Tales protagonist in terms of function: he's swift, hits
    hard, and is an absolute TP hog until you can slap a Faerie Ring on him or get
    some TP-restoration or conservation skills. What separates Yuri from other
    Tales protagonists like Lloyd or Luke is that he's already fairly well-
    developed and doesn't have a period of time in-game in which he needs to search
    for himself. His development is a bit more understated and serves more to help
    his allies develop, especially Karol and Flynn.
    
    In battle, Yuri works best in one-on-one scenarios, for the most part. He's
    likely to take a lot of damage if he's surrounded. Mobile artes like Ghost Wolf
    or Dragon Swarm allow Yuri to dodge incoming attacks fairly well, so make good
    use of them. His Tension skills paired with his Ability Plus, Ability Chain and
    Super Chain skills make him the game's premier combo king, which is aided by
    the fact that most of his artes hit multiple times.
    
    His Combination skills will allow him to deal great amounts of damage very
    easily, pulling off several million damage with no sweat at all thanks to an
    exploit involving Brutal Fang, the Combination skills, and his second Mystic
    Arte.
    
    Overall, if you're looking for a fast, powerful and agile swordsman who
    absolutely breaks the game in half--to an even greater extent than Rita, in my
    opinion--you're in for a treat. Few characters in Tales games come close to how
    overpowered Yuri is--though recently dethroned by Ludger in Xillia 2--and this
    guide will help you in making the most of his abilities.

         4.2: CONTROLLING YURI                                               [FAQ02]
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Most generic functions that I don't have much to say about like the Menu button
    or the Target button won't be mentioned here.
    
    THE ATTACK BUTTON
    
    Attack              : 3-9 Hits
      Yuri will slash normally in front of him. It's good a good rate of attack and
      will hit most enemies above him, as well.
    
    Attack + Forwards   : 3-9 Hits
      Arin will interchange between thrusts and punches. Yuri will travel farther
      when attacking, but the enemy will be pushed away slightly each time.
    
    Attack + Up         : 3-9 Hits
      Yuri will slash upwards into the air, while stepping forward slightly with
      each slash. This is generally better for hitting enemies in the air, but it's
      a bit too slow to warrant its use that much since normally attacking will
      also hit enemies in the air.
    
    Attack + Down       : 6-12 Hits
      Yuri will attack in low, sweeping motions. The attacks are nice and fast,
      and because of the higher hit count, Yuri will restore more TP through
    regular attacks. This makes skills like Combo Voltage
    (繧ウ繝ウ繝懊?繝ォ繝??繧ク) even
    better. Later hits of the combo allowed due to Combo Plus skills
    (繧ウ繝ウ繝懊?繝ゥ繧ケ)
      will knock the enemy down, at which point you should follow it up with a
      Free-Run Attack.
    
    L2 + Attack         : 1 Hit
      Yuri performs a low sweeping slash. This can chain from regular hits and
      chain into artes. Downed enemies will also be forced to stand, which is
      crucial for extending combos on downed enemies, especially Burst artes and
      the like. It's a free hit, so you should get used to taking advantage of
      using it. For the sake of the guide, I will call the the Free-Run Attack.
    
    Down + Attack + Air : 1 Hit - "Dragon Buster"
      Yuri suddenly slashes toward the ground, plunging the enemy along with him
      if they're caught in the slash. This requires the Dragon Buster skill
    (繧ォ繝悶ヨ繝ッ繝ェ). It can't normally chain after artes, so Over Limit is
    required to
      get the most use out of the skill.
    
    THE GUARD BUTTON
    
    Guard               : "Guard"
      Yuri will guard while the button is pressed, slicing all physical damage taken
      to a lower amount. Guarding will also prevent staggering upon receiving
      physical damage. However, magic artes will still deal full damage and stagger
      Yuri. Make sure to use Magic Guard instead when you're going to be hit with a
      spell.
    
    Guard + Down        : "Magic Guard"
      Yuri will create a magic bubble around him while holding the Square button
      and holding the control stick down. This will slice all magical damage taken
      to a lower amount and prevent staggering. Physical artes will still deal full
    damage and stagger Yuri. The Magic Guard skill (繝槭ず繝?け繧ャ繝シ繝? must
    be active.
    
    Guard + Forward     : "Critical Guard"
      Yuri, while guarding, will shift forward slightly. If done at the correct
    time, enemy attacks will be nullified. The Critical Guard skill
    (繧ッ繝ェ繝?ぅ繧ォ繝ォ繧ャ繝シ繝?
      must be active.
    
    Guard + Backwards   : "Backstep"
      Yuri will jump backwards slightly. This is a useful maneuver to evade attacks.
      Yuri will no longer be guarding during the backstep, so be careful when
    using it. The Backstep skill (繝舌ャ繧ッ繧ケ繝?ャ繝? must be active. If
    Landing Step
    (繝舌ャ繧ッ繧ケ繝?ャ繝代?) is active, Yuri can repeatedly backstep in quick
    succession,
    with the right timing. If the Step Combo skill (繧ケ繝?ャ繝励さ繝ウ繝? is
    active, press
      the Attack button to follow the backstep up with a jumping slash.
    
    Guard + Free Fall   : "Recover"
      Yuri will recover mid-air if blown away by enemy attacks or hit by the Over
      Limit burst upon activation. You can also recover shortly after hitting the
      ground in certain situations. Note that sometimes it's better to wait for
      Yuri recover normally as recovering could subject you to damage against the
    more combo-heavy bosses like Zagi. The Recover skill (繝ェ繧ォ繝舌Μ繝ウ繧ー)
    must be
      active.
    
    FREE-RUN BUTTON
    
    Free Run            : "Free Run"
      This will simply allow Yuri to move beyond the axis allowed when not in free
      run.
    
    Free Run + Attack   : "Free-Run Attack"
      Yuri performs a low sweeping slash. This can chain from regular hits and
      chain into artes. Downed enemies will also be forced to stand, which is
      crucial for extending combos on downed enemies, especially Burst artes and
      the like. It's a free hit, so you should get used to taking advantage of
      using it. For the sake of the guide, I will call the the Free-Run Attack.
    
    Free Run + Guard    : "Manual Cancel"
      This technique can only be used in Manual mode. After certain artes, use
      the guard button to cancel the Free-Run cooldown (or the period of time after
      you stop free running but before you're allowed to move again) in order to
      chain artes together that normally could not be chained. This is a way to
      extend combos without the use of Over Limit or the Super Chain, Ability Plus
      or Ability Chain skills. It can also be used for defensive purposes to cancel
      endlag on certain attacks that would otherwise leave you open to attack.
    
    CONTROL MODES
    
    Manual
      This mode, while it sacrifices the ability to chain combos together in
      certain ways, gives Yuri certain abilities such as Manual Canceling and the
      ability to use projectile artes without Yuri stupidly walking up toward the
      enemy, rending the distance fighting certain artes provide useless. Yuri can
      also use Brutal Fang to trigger Mystic Artes without touching the enemy only
      in Manual Mode.
    
    Semi-Auto
      While this sacrifices certain abilities (and removes a Grade bonus at the end
      of battle), this allows Yuri to chain attacks together in a more effective
      manner, especially against highly mobile enemies like Zagi or some of the
      Giganto monsters. It's up to your discretion to decide which control mode
      you should use.
    
    Auto
      If you're a true trailblazer you can use Auto to have the computer decide
      what Yuri will do.

         4.3: GENERAL STRATEGIES AND POINTERS                                [FAQ03]
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    -> Yuri is most effective in one-on-one situations, due to his melee-oriented
       artes. He has some artes that allow him to be mobile such as Ghost Wolf
       which can be great for avoiding incoming damage. Be sure to utilize any
       movement options you might have if the situation calls for it.
    
    -> Prioritize taking out enemy spellcasters, as they can really punish Yuri for
       his lack of magic defense. Magic Guard skills help Yuri deal with incoming
       spells so make sure to take advantage of them!
    
    -> Yuri's amazing and all but he's a gigantic TP hog and most slap a Faerie Ring
       onto him to cut TP costs. Skills like Combo Voltage should be prioritized or
       be prepared to sink a lot of Orange and Pineapple Gels into Yuri.
    
    -> Yuri has access to good projectiles such as Azure Edge and Final Gale. Avoid
       mob situations by spamming these when necessary.
    
    -> Yuri can't really handle mobs all that well. Artes that can slightly deal
       with mobs like Crushing Eagle or Guardian Field only have small ranges and
       very often leave him open to attack before and after performing the arte.
       Dhaos Blast, which is likely his best arte for dealing with groups of
       enemies, is only available after completing the 200-Man Melee and needs to
       be equipped in order to use it, which could be replaced with better
       accessories like the Krona Symbol or the Miracle Bangle.
    
    -> Speaking of Accessories, this game boasts a wide variety of them, but there
       are a few that are clearly better than the rest, especially for Yuri.
                -> Stun Talisman (繝斐Κ繝弱Φ), prevents Stun.
                -> Faerie Ring (繝輔ぉ繧「繝ェ繧」繝ェ繝ウ繧ー), reduces TP costs by 50%.
                -> Emerald Ring (繧ィ繝。繝ゥ繝ォ繝峨Μ繝ウ繧ー), reduces TP costs by 33%.
    -> Barbatos' Ring (繝舌Ν繝舌ヨ繧ケ繝ェ繝ウ繧ー), prohibits all item
    use but
                   dramatically increases attack power.
    -> Risky Ring (繝ェ繧ケ繧ュ繝シ繝ェ繝ウ繧ー), drops physical and magical
    defenses
                   drastically but artes only cost 1 TP.
    -> Ultimate Red Cape (繧カ繝サ繝ャ繝?ラ繝槭Φ繝?, absorbs fire,
    earth and light
                   damage but is weak to water, wind and darkness.
    -> Ultimate Blue Cape (繧カ繝サ繝悶Ν繝シ繝槭Φ繝?, absorbs wind,
    water and
                   darkness but is weak to fire, earth and darkness.
    -> Krona Symbol (繧ッ繝ュ繝シ繝翫す繝ウ繝懊Ν), protects against all
    status effects.
    -> Imperial Prestige (逧?ク昴?螽∝?), increases fill rate of Over
    Limit
                   gauge.
    -> Dhaos' Cape (繝?繧ェ繧ケ繝槭Φ繝?, alters Destruction Field to
    Dhaos Blast.
    -> Miracle Bangle (繝溘Λ繧ッ繝ォ繝舌Φ繧ー繝ォ), restores 10% of HP
    and TP upon
                   defeating an enemy.
    
    -> Once you get it, Glory should be an absolute priority. It's arguably the best
       defensive skill in the game and only Yuri has access to it. Make sure he
       stays on the ground, though: he no longer has Glory once his feet are off
       the ground. It's little wonder later games such as Xillia called this skill
       "Grounded Stance".
    
    -> Yuri's Blazor Edge: Abyssion is fire elemental, which can be annoying when
       enemies you're fighting are immune to fire. If you still want to run with
       the Fell Arm, use artes that "dilute" the type of elemental damage you're
       dealing like Azure Edge, Azure Storm, Guardian Field, Destruction Field,
       and others to not have your attacks nullified, or worse, absorbed.
    
    -> Make careful use of the Recover skill. Many of this game's bosses can combo
       you very well if you're too trigger-happy with recovering. Sometimes it's
       better to wait for Yuri to get up normally to evade damage, as Yuri does
       have invincibility frames upon getting up.

    These are universal among all characters, but I thought it'd be useful if they
    were also listed here. Generally, 31 points (NOT SP NEEDED) will suffice to
    gain a Skill Symbol and, for the most part, will be effective in getting the
    Skill Symbol you might want. However, that isn't the only requirement to get
    a certain Skill Symbol. The requirements for when you have the required points
    for Goldos but want Fleck are a bit more nebulous. In that case, having double
    the amount of points in Attack-type skills would override Goldos with Fleck.
    Generally, all skill symbols will work this way.

                           the man).
                        -> After creating Undine, go to the Royal Quarter again and
                           either witness a scene or talk to the man again to earn
                           the title. Wow, what a doozy.

                  acquire all recipes (except Mabo Curry, which is given to you
                  with the request) and talk to the Wonder Chef in Nordopolica.
                  You only have one chance to win per playthrough, so make sure to
                  save before entering. To win, the character you enter must have
                  at least three stars on all recipes and must have mastered all
                  recipes that have effects that restore HP and TP. The best way to
                  grind recipes is to sleep at the inn in Aurnion and cook after
                  each rest. The item shop nearby will allow you to quickly restock
                  if you don't have the ingredients. Completing Aurnion will allow
                  you to buy a wider variety of ingredients, so make sure to do that
                  first.

                           EVERY event there by speaking to everyone (some people
                           have trouble triggering the man in Yumanju's
                           appearance). You'll get the Tiara attachment for Estelle

                           machines have one statue. Get them all.
                        -> With all the statues (and keep the attachment on Estelle
                           just to be safe), head back to Yumanju and speak with

                  (chests found within the Necropolis of Nostalgia / Telescopic
    Graveyard / 譛幃升縺ョ蠅捺園) do NOT count towards the title).
    Speak
                  to the cow kid near the entrance again for the title.
                  Frequently-missed chests can be found...
                        -> Within the right side of Tarqaron, where you find the
                           Fell Arms Uroboros and Susanoh. Requires the Sorcerer's
                           Ring Level 4, as do chests in the ensuing areas.
                        -> Within the icebergs at the Blade Drifts of Zophier. Use
                           the Sorcerer's Ring to push the icebergs and knock the
                           chests onto land.

                           Quoi Woods. You can also find Karol's Glasya Labolas

                        -> Behind rock formations and bushes in Relewiese Hollow.
    Estelle's Mercurius (繝。繝ェ繧ッ繝ェ繧ヲ繧ケ) is found this
    way.
                        -> Behind the cracked walls in the Shrine of Baction. Exits
                           are marked on the map so it should be fairly simple to
                           find them.
                        -> There is a new chest in the PS3 version behind where you
                           fight Zagi. Use the Sorcerer's Ring to break the blocks
                           and continue through to find a chest containing a sword

    that you don't
                  use items until you've viewed the skit and have gotten the title.
                  For me, the skit popped up on may way to Capua Torim from Heliord
                  after defeating Barbos, so don't worry if you don't get it
                  immediately. Using Holy Bottles or Gels in the field does not
                  disqualify you from the title or the achievement/trophy.
                        -> Alternatively, you can just unlock the skit via the
                           Grade Shop and view it in the Skit Viewer at Nam Cobanda.

                           female party members. He'll give you the Super Aer Board

         4.7.1: THE INFINITE COMBO                                           [ADV01]
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The infinite combo is actually a very simple thing to accomplish. Back in the
    360 version, Yuri (and Rita) could combo bosses into oblivion once they stopped
    counterattacking early on in the combo. While its utility has been nerfed a tad
    in the PS3 version what with humanoid enemies escaping combos more easily, it's
    still very effective once the Tension skills kick in.
    
    SKILLS YOU WILL NEED
        High Combo Tension      (繝上う繝代?繧ウ繝ウ繝?
        Hyper Combo Tension     (繝上う繝代?繧ウ繝ウ繝懶シ?
        Ultimate Combo Tension  (繝上う繝代?繧ウ繝ウ繝懶シ?
        *Perfect Combo Tension  (繝上う繝代?繧ウ繝ウ繝懶シ?
        Dispersion              (諡。謨」)
        Great Deluge            (豌エ蝪オ)
        **Chain                 (騾」謦?
        **Hell Fire             (邏?動)
    
    *  : Not necessarily needed, but part of the Tension set and is nice to have.
    ** : Great Deluge and Dispersion are preferred, but Hell Fire and Chain can get
         the job done.
    
    SKILLS THAT ASSIST GREATLY
        Ability Chain       (繧ュ繝」繝ウ繧サ繝ォ繝励Λ繧ケ)
        Ability Chain 2     (繧ュ繝」繝ウ繧サ繝ォ繝励Λ繧ケ??
        Super Chain         (繧ソ繝シ繝ウ繝ャ繧ケ)
        Super Chain 2       (繧ソ繝シ繝ウ繝ャ繧ケ??
        Super Chain 3       (繧ソ繝シ繝ウ繝ャ繧ケ??
        Ability Plus        (繧ュ繝」繝ウ繧サ繝ゥ繝シ)
        High Ability Plus   (繝上う繧ュ繝」繝ウ繧サ繝ゥ繝シ)
        Hyper Ability Plus  (繝上う繝代?繧ュ繝」繝ウ繧サ繝ゥ繝シ)
    
    THE PROCESS
        Basically, the aim of the game is to attain a 28-hit combo, which will
        trigger High Combo Tension, sending Yuri into Over Limit. At that point, you
        just need to get to a 50-hit combo before Level 1 Over Limit runs out, which
        will trigger Hyper Combo Tension, sending Yuri into Level 2 Over Limit.
        Getting a 72-hit combo and a 96-hit combo will send Yuri into Level 3 and
        Level 4 Over Limit respectively.
    
        Once you're near the end of the maximum amount of Over Limit you can attain
        from a combo, activate Divine Wolf - Flood or Divine Wolf - Blaze level 3 to
        pop the enemy into the air, whilst Over Limit ends for Yuri. At that point,
        use Yuri's Free-Run attack to pick the enemy off the ground, repeating the
        process all over again.
    
        1: Attain a combo of 28 hits to enter Over Limit Level 1.
        2: Spam high hit count artes until you enter Over Limit Level 2.
        3: Spam even more high hit count artes until you enter Over Limit Level 3.
            -> Optionally, you can do the same until you hit Over Limit Level 4.
        4: Once your Over Limit period in level 3 or 4 Over Limit is nearly over,
           activate Divine Wolf - Flood or Divine Wolf - Blaze.
        5: After the arte finishes, use a Free-Run attack to pick the enemy up.
        6: Get another 28-hit combo. Repeat ad naseum.
    
    HOW DO I GET THAT 28 HIT COMBO?
        -> Ability Chain, Super Chain and Ability Plus skills will help you chain
           artes together to get the combo.
        -> Brutal Fang, after enough uses, can be enough alone to get the required
           amount of hits. This is a little tough to do, however, and should be
           switched out for the aforementioned Ability Chain-esque skills.
        -> Expending a bar of Over Limit can allow you to spam artes and enter
           Over Limit Level 1 again, despite already being in Over Limit Level 1.
           Yuri's Over Limit period for the appropriate level will simply extend
           itself.
    
    WHAT ARTES SHOULD I USE?
        The following have high hit counts and are relatively quick:
        -> Shining Fang         (蜀?麻迚?
        -> Dragon Swarm         (辷ェ遶憺?」迚呎脈)
        -> Shining Dragon Swarm (蟲サ蜀?庄譁ャ)
        -> Brutal Fang          (蝎帷ヨ隘イ)
        -> Shining Fang Drop    (蜀?麻隘イ關ス)
        -> AT OVERLIMIT LEVEL 2 AND ABOVE, Frigid Blast (邨カ遐エ辜域ーキ謦?
    
    OVER LIMIT LEVEL 2 AND YOU
        -> All attacks will automatically pick enemies up, meaning artes that knock
           enemies down can be used freely without messing your combo up. Frigid
           Blast is so good at this level since it's so powerful and quick.
        -> Aerial combos become more possible since you can chain Dragon Buster
           after artes like Wailing Havoc and Severing Fang.
    
    OTHER TIPS
        -> Try to pin the enemy against the edges of the fighting area. Yuri's
           artes can sometimes push away enemies enough to reset the combo counter
           forcing you to restart.
        -> At Over Limit Level 2, knockdown artes like Lone Wolf Storm can help
           subdue more wily enemies like Zagi.

         4.7.2: COMBINATION SKILLS                                           [ADV02]
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    NEEDED SKILLS
        Combination     (繧ウ繝ウ繝薙ロ繝シ繧キ繝ァ繝ウ)
        Combination 2   (繧ウ繝ウ繝薙ロ繝シ繧キ繝ァ繝ウ??
        Combination 3   (繧ウ繝ウ繝薙ロ繝シ繧キ繝ァ繝ウ??
    
    Yuri has a set of skills with curious effects called the Combination skills
    (繧ウ繝ウ繝薙ロ繝シ繧キ繝ァ繝ウ), which have some pretty neat effects like filling
    the Over Limit
    gauge or restoring TP, but most importantly they multiply the damage of the
    next hit you deal after performing the required combo. For example, doing a
    3-hit normal combo followed by a base arte then an arcane arte will trigger
    Combination (繧ウ繝ウ繝薙ロ繝シ繧キ繝ァ繝ウ), which will multiply the damage dealt by
    the first hit
    you deal upon performing the arcane arte. If you're comboing an enemy normally,
    this means that the first hit of the arcane arte will deal 2.5x damage.
    Combination 2 (繧ウ繝ウ繝薙ロ繝シ繧キ繝ァ繝ウ?? will multiply damage by 4x and
    Combination 3
    (繧ウ繝ウ繝薙ロ繝シ繧キ繝ァ繝ウ?? will multiply damage by 10x.
    
    The requirements for each arte are as follows:
    
    COMBINATION (繧ウ繝ウ繝薙ロ繝シ繧キ繝ァ繝ウ)
        3-hit normal -> base arte -> arcane arte
    
    COMBINATION 2 (繧ウ繝ウ繝薙ロ繝シ繧キ繝ァ繝ウ??
        3-hit normal -> base arte -> altered arte -> arcane arte
    
    COMBINATION 3 (繧ウ繝ウ繝薙ロ繝シ繧キ繝ァ繝ウ??
        3-hit normal -> base arte -> altered arte -> arcane arte -> mystic arte
    
    NOTE THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ACTUALLY HIT THE ENEMY FOR THESE SKILLS TO
    TRIGGER.
    
    THE CONVENTIONAL APPLICATION
        The most basic and most useful method of taking advantage of these skills
        is basically to repeat the requirements of Combination over and over again,
        with a strong, single-hit arcane arte to finish off the combo. The arcane
        arte used will enjoy a 2.5x damage multiplier, boosting your damage
        significantly.
    
        The arte most useful for this sort of thing is Barrier Surge (驕ョ豕「), which
        is a single-hit arcane arte that happens to deal a ton of damage if used
        in conjunction with the Combination skill. Speed runs use this technique to
        mow down enemies, and it works quite well. Using Combination 2 will allow
        you to multiply damage by 4x.
    
    ANGEL'S CREST AND COMBINATION SKILLS
        Taken to its most logical extreme, Combination skills can allow Yuri to
        transcend these pallid, mortal bounds and become truly and utterly broken.
        This technique can and will destroy every single boss in the game--save for
        the Spiral Draco--in a single hit, GUARANTEED. Here's what you do:
    
        1: Set control to Manual Mode.
        2: Enter Over Limit Level 4.
        3: Trigger Combination without hitting the enemy.
        4: Trigger Combination 2 in the same combo, again without hitting the enemy.
        5: Trigger Combination 3 using Angel's Crest without hitting the enemy.
           Make sure to use Brutal Fang, which does not require Yuri to hit the
           enemy in order to trigger Mystic Artes, to activate the Mystic Arte.
        6: Watch in fear as Yuri deals 5,000,000+ damage to the first thing he hits.
    
        I'm not joking. Millions of damage in a couple of seconds. Only the Spiral
        Draco can actually survive this ridiculous technique because of its multiple
        parts and whatnot. Bosses on Unknown will crumble before Yuri without even
        so much as a fight.
    
        I've personally dealt as much as 9,000,000+ damage, a number which you can
        only get higher if Yuri's physical and magical attack rises. Since he can't
        use his Fell Arm for Angel's Crest, you're less likely to have hit the
        stat cap.
    
    WHY DOES IT WORK?
        Combination skills multiply the next damage you deal by a certain number.
        Combination will multiply it by 2.5, Combination 2 will multiply it by 4,
        and Combination 3 will multiply it by 10. These will ALSO multiply upon
        each other, meaning that if you trigger all three skills, the next hit you
        will deal will be multiplied by 100. Naturally, since you can only activate
        Combination 3 by triggering a Mystic Arte, you can either use Savage Wolf
        Fury or Angel's Crest. Angel's Crest has higher base damage than Savage Wolf
        Fury AND only has to divide its "power" among two hits... you see where I'm
        going with this.
    
        And get this, since Over Limit Level 4 makes you invincible, you have all
        the opportunities in the world to trigger all three Combination skills. It's
        quite ridiculous, but hey, Yuri has always been busted.

         4.7.3: THE SAVAGE WOLF FURY EXPLOIT                                 [ADV03]
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This exploit isn't anything that requires a huge amount of set up or anything,
    just the appropriate skills and a few enemies bunched together.
    
    NEEDED SKILLS
        Special                 (繧ケ繝壹す繝」繝ォ)
        *Hit Plus               (繝偵ャ繝医?繝ゥ繧ケ)
        High Combo Tension      (繝上う繝代?繧ウ繝ウ繝?
        Hyper Combo Tension     (繝上う繝代?繧ウ繝ウ繝懶シ?
        Ultimate Combo Tension  (繝上う繝代?繧ウ繝ウ繝懶シ?
        **Perfect Combo Tension (繝上う繝代?繧ウ繝ウ繝懶シ?
    
    *  : Not totally needed, but makes things much easier.
    ** : Also not needed, but a Level 4 Savage Wolf Fury is more powerful than a
         Level 3 Savage Wolf Fury.
    
    THE PROCESS
        Essentially, just enter level 3 or 4 Over Limit, group a bunch of enemies
        together, and trigger the Mystic Arte, the close multiple enemies are
        together, the better.
    
        Yuri will perform the Mystic Arte and if you've herded the enemies together
        well enough, Yuri will hit enemies other than the one you've targeted and
        enter Over Limit 3 or 4, at which point you can just use Brutal Fang and
        trigger Savage Wolf Fury over and over again (you must be in Manual Mode for
        Brutal Fang to work immediately without touching enemies, though).
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         4.7.4: PARTY SYNERGY                                                [ADV04]
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are certain party members that Yuri works better with. I will go over them
    all. The order in which I have arranged the party members is not absolute at
    all, and is merely there as a soft suggestion.
    
    FLYNN
        Flynn is easily one of the best party members to put alongside Yuri. His
    Rival Surge (繝ゥ繧、繝舌Ν繧ィ繝翫ず繝シ) and Rival Surge 2
    (繝ゥ繧、繝舌Ν繧ィ繝翫ず繝シ?? specifically
        require Yuri in order to trigger (and are great effects by themselves). His
    dual Mystic Arte, Celestial Torrent (豁ヲ逾槫曙螟ゥ豕「) also requires Yuri to
    be
        in the party (obviously). Flynn is overall a very good team-player with
    skills like Devotion (繝?ぅ繝懊?繧キ繝ァ繝ウ) slicing damage for other
    characters. He
        boasts a good number of healing spells, as well. Overall, Flynn is a great
        teammate for Yuri.
    
    RITA
        Rita is a very popular party member for good reason. She stays out of Yuri's
        way and pelts enemies with powerful magic spells, all of which give Yuri
        many opportunities to go to work. Rita pretty much has a place in any party,
        and there's only one enemy in the game that has magic defenses high enough
        to make her a liability.
    
    ESTELLE
        Estelle is another party member that can sort of fit into any given party
        lineup, as she has powerful healing artes such as Nightingale and great
        magic artes such as Holy Rain. Her stat-boosting artes can also help a great
        deal in-battle. A lot of her strike artes can knock enemies down, however,
        which can be a bit annoying, but it's nothing that cannot be fixed with
        appropriate strategies.
    
    RAVEN
        Raven, like Rita, is very much prone to staying out of Yuri's way and
        supporting with wind-type magic artes like Havoc Gale and Arrivederci.
        His Love Shot arte is actually a very good healing arte if spammed. It
        can actually be worth it in tough battles to map his Love Shot to one of
        your shortcuts, so you can spam it whenever necessary. A lot of his artes
        can knock enemies down, but you can prevent him from using those artes by
        turning them off in the artes menu.
    
    PATTY
        She's a wild card. Her gimmick, essentially, is that all of her artes have
        random effects that can vary wildly. She can be a great boon, but she can
        be just as easily a great detriment. If you're lucky, she can easily be the
        best party member to have on your team by consistently sending you into
        Level 4 Over Limit or healing you by great amounts. If you're unlucky, she
        can send the enemy into Over Limit or change your element into something
        the boss you're facing resists. You can make her results more consistent
    with the Safe Bet skill (繧サ繝シ繝輔ユ繧」繝吶ャ繝?, so if you don't want to
    take the
        chance her you can use that.
    
    REPEDE
        Repede is great melee support for Yuri in battle, as he attacks fast in
        hits relatively hard. He can knock away and knock down enemies making things
        annoying, but he's still a pretty effective supporter. His item skills allow
        him to make the most of your items, which can be nice when you're in a pinch
        and your other healers can't get their artes off fast enough... or if they
        are gone from the party entirely, post-Myorzo, for example.
    
    KAROL
        Karol is strong and has surprisingly good healing artes with his -Smash
        artes, but most of his artes knock enemies down, making things a little
        annoying. There is a lot of debate on the forums as to whether or not he
        surpasses Estelle as a healer and while I personally prefer Estelle (as
        Karol is kinda slow getting around the field, especially when you're
        fighting a mobile enemy), he's still pretty effective. If you're okay with
        a lot of knockdown artes, Karol is still a pretty good member to have on
        your team.
    
    JUDITH
        Judith, unfortunately, is not much of a team player. She excels when she
        can perform combos in the air, which draws enemies away from Yuri. And
        if she's on the ground, most of her techniques will knock enemies down,
        which makes combos a bit tricky. She's great to control, but not so great
        as a computer-controlled team member.

         4.7.5: ARTE USAGE AND YOU                                           [ADV05]
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This isn't so much an advanced strategy than it is a universal game mechanic
    that must be addressed: the more you use your artes, the more powerful they
    become. I'm not quite sure what the exact formula is behind it, or if artes
    are simply boosted in strength once they hit a certain number, but it's there.
    Once you hit 9,999 uses with any arte, that arte's power is tripled, meaning
    you'll deal quite a bit more damage, as you can imagine. It's a huge grind but
    if you're thinking you want to take on Unknown Mode in a Yuri Solo run, go nuts,
    but a little arte usage grinding is very helpful in the long run.

         4.8: QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS                                          [FAQ08]
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Q: The combo counter resets on some bosses... how do I stop this so I can go
       into overlimit?
    A: Despite what the combo counter says, as long as Yuri hits the enemy rapidly
       enough, the game will still consider the hits he's dealing as part of a
       combo, contributing to his tension counter.
    
    Q: Do titles have any effect in this game?
    A: Titles don't have any effect, save for the costumes.
    
    Q: Where do I get the Limit Octet? (Allows 8 overlimits)
    A: You have to complete the Merciless Rank of Team Battle at Nordopolica.
    
    Q: What recipes does Yuri like?
    A: Yuri has a huge sweet tooth, so he likes the Sorbet, Pudding, Cake, Crepe,
       and Fruit Parfait recipes. He also enjoys Mabo Curry and the Fisherman's
       Hot Pot dish.
    
    Q: What recipes is Yuri good at?
    A: He's good at making the Sandwich, Sorbet, Pudding, Cake, Crepe and Fruit
       Parfait recipes.
    
    Q: What are his recipe evolutions?
    A: His recipe evolutions are...
            -> Rice Ball      --> Beef Bowl
            -> Pork Miso Soup --> Udon Noodles Hot Pot
            -> Sorbet         --> Pudding
            -> Pudding        --> Cake
    
    Q: This guy I saw on YouTube does so much damage in his combos without a Fell
       Arm, even though his strength isn't that high! And even at 9999 strength,
       I can't even do that much damage!
    A: I mention it above, but artes have their power tripled upon reaching 9999
       uses. It's an insane requirement with an insane reward, but it's there if
       you're feeling up to it!
