Learning Abilities

Equip Weapons and Armor With The Ability

Depending ont he weapon or armor that you have equipped, you may have noticed abilities attached to them in the Equip menu. These abilities can be used as long as you have the corresponding weapon or armor piece equipped, but the ability must be mastered to keep it for good.

Keeping a piece of equipment equipped and gaining AP through battles will allow you to master thea bility over time. Once an ability has been mastered, you are free to use the ability as often as you'd like.
