Section 2-1: Basic

In this game you do not choose class, instead you choose something called aptitude. There are also 4 main status categories: STR, DEX, INT and VIT. At level 10 you can learn C1 skills, lv25 for C2 skills, lv48 for C3 skills and lv62 for C4 skills. For every “C” there are 3 skills in each status category, so there are 3*4=12 different C1 skills, 12 C2 skills, 12 C3 skills and 12 C4 skills.

Status points (STR, DEX, INT and VIT) can be obtained into two types: basic status points and allocation status points. Both give the same attributes points as result; however, only allocation status points are used to meet equipment and skill learning requirements.

When you level up you get a total of 4 basic status points:1 basic STR, 1 basic DEX, 1 basic INT and 1 basic VIT; you also receive 4 allocation status points which you can invest in any status category you wish.

To initially learn a skill, you need to meet a level and an allocation status points requirement. Example: A C1 STR skill requires 20 allocation STR. Furthermore, C2 skills require 24 allocation status points in the correct category, C3 skills need 80 and C4 need 120.

Once you have learnt a C1 skill in a certain category, you cannot learn any other skill in the same category. Example: if you learnt one C1 STR skill, you cannot learn any other C1 STR skill, but you are still able to learn C1 INT, DEX and VIT skills as well as any C2, C3 and C4 skill. Similar rule is applied to C2, C3 and C4 skills.

Every skill has two main effects: one active and one passive.
Active effects have 10 or 12 levels while passive ones have 4 or 5 levels. It is your aptitude that decides which minority of your skills that can reach level 12 in active effect and level 5 in passive effect, while the majority can only reach level 10 in active and level 4 in passive.

When you first learn a new skill, it starts with a level 1 active effect and no passive effect. The active effects have their own “experience bar”, however the word “proficiency” is used instead of “experience”. Every time you use an active effect in battle you gain 1 proficiency point in that active effect. It is important to know that you can buy a lot of proficiency points with renown points from the npc Freddie (X=175, Y =320) in Cloud City (Read other guides to see how the renown points are gained and what else they can be used for). When your active effect reaches level 2, you will automaticly unlock passive effect level 1. Active level 4 is needed for passive level 2, and active level 7 is needed for passive level 3.

Section 3-1: Advanced

Besides affecting the maximum skill levels, aptitudes also affect how much attribute points you gain from status points and how much hp you gain per level. They do however NOT affect how much attribute points you gain from equipments.

Suppose we have an aptitude with no attribute point bonuses nor penalties (a such aptitude does not exist in the game, it is merely an example). Then:
status points:  1 str  1 dex  1 vit  1 int
hp:                4.0    3.0     9.0    4.0
mp:               4.0    6.0     8.0    12.0
atk:               1.2    0.9     0.6    0.4
ap:                0.2    0.6     0.1    0.2
def:               0.6    0.9     1.2    0.2
hit:                0.6    0.4     0.1    0.3
dodge:           0.2    0.6     0.1    0.3
m.atk:           0.4    0.6     0.6    1.2
m.def:           0.6    0.4     0.6    1.2
Also when you level up, besides receiving a total of 4 basic status points and 4 allocation status points, you also gain 15.0 hp. Keep in mind that when you  first start the game, at level 1, you already have 15.0 hp as well as a total of 20 basic status points (5 in each category).

Example: Suppose we chose a theoretical aptitude with 4% atk bonus and -5% hp penalty. Also assume that we are level 6 and have spent all our allocation status points in STR. Then:

1.
basic points:   10 str  10 dex  10 vit  10 int
hp:               (40.0    30.0     90.0    40.0) * 0.95
mp:               40.0    60.0     80.0    120.0
atk:              (12.0    9.0       6.0      4.0) * 1.04
ap:                2.0      6.0       1.0      2.0
def:               6.0      9.0       12.0    2.0
hit:                6.0      4.0       1.0      3.0
dodge:           2.0      6.0       1.0      3.0
m.atk:           4.0      6.0       6.0      12.0
m.def:           6.0      4.0       6.0      12.0

2.
allocation points: 20 str
hp:                   (80.0) * 0.95
mp:                   80.0
atk:                  (24.0) * 1.04
ap:                    4.0
def:                   12.0
hit:                    12.0
dodge:               4.0
m.atk:               8.0
m.def:               12.0

3.
hp from leveling up(including the hp you start with): (90.0) * 0.95

4. (Total)
hp: (40.0 + 30.0 + 90.0 + 40.0 +80.0 + 90.0) * 0.95 = 351.5
mp: 40.0 + 60.0 + 80.0 + 120.0 + 80.0 = 380.0
atk: (12.0 + 9.0 + 6.0 + 4.0 + 24.0) * 1.04 = 57.2
ap: 2.0 + 6.0 + 1.0 + 2.0 + 4.0 = 15.0
def: 6.0 + 9.0 + 12.0 + 2.0 + 12.0 = 41.0
hit:  6.0 + 4.0 + 1.0 + 3.0 + 12.0 = 26.0
dodge: 2.0 + 6.0 + 1.0 + 3.0 + 4.0 = 16.0
m.atk: 4.0 + 6.0 + 6.0 + 12.0 + 8.0 = 36.0
m.def: 6.0 + 4.0 + 6.0 + 12.0 + 12.0 = 40.0
