■ Skill Shop: Special Skills and Evilities
“Evilities” are character-specific abilities that remain in effect as long as certain conditions are met. There are two types of Evilities: “Unique Evilities” that are specific to a character, and “Common Evilities” that can be swapped in and out. You can equip as many Common Evilities as your maximum cost allows, so swap them in and out according to your play style.
“Special Skills” consist of various skills such as attack and recovery that require you to spend SP in battle. Special Skills include character-specific skills that can only be used by a specific character, as well as magic that can be used by anyone.
Special Skill Spell Example: “Fire” – The first stage of fire-type magic that can deal damage with the power of fire. Special Skills can be upgraded at the Skill Shop (higher power, less SP cost, etc.), as can the range of magic-only skills.
Common Evility Example: “Fire Body” – Increases fire resistance by 25 percent and strengthens fire-based attacks. This is a low-cost Common Evility that anyone can learn.
Common Evility Example: “Zombie Revival” – Resurrects character on the Base Panel after death. (Can only be used once per stage.) While this is a Common Evility that only Zed can learn naturally, other characters can learn it by creating a Book of Secrets at the Skill Shop.
You can learn and strengthen Special Skills and Evilities at the Skill Shop at the base. While some Common Abilities can only be learned by specific characters naturally, other characters can learn those abilities by creating a Book of Secrets at the Skill Shop.
