Superb Training Tactic
For all those impatient Final Fantasy Tactics players, here is a way to get powerful skills and job classes extremely fast.
*a small hint to help you get started is to rid your party of everyone you do NOT intend to use later in the game to train, you can always go and hire new "troops" in any town, and use this technique to bring your new character up to par with the rest of your team.
The first step in this training technique is to change all of your players to be trained to squires, and teach them all the skill "gained JP up." This will help your characters to gain Job levels faster and learn skills also quicker. The next step is to change one of your characters to "Knight", or get a player in your party the skill Power break, and equip them to use it.
* Dont forget to equip everyone with gained JP up!
Strip all of your chacters of there retaliation abilities and weapons, except your Knight, or Knightly figure. Also set all or most of your characters to be able to use Item, and at leat a potion ability (depending on your level you be the judge of which potions you need) and phoenix down, just in case. No find a battle.
The next step is to get into a NON STORY RELATED BATTLE at any location, perferably one of the plains levels. Set your characters up in whatever formation you want. Have your Knightly figure kill all the enemy's in the battle except for one chocobo. Surround that chocobo, and power break it until it can only do 1 damage per attack. You can also power break all your unarmed characters to prevent accidental death of the animal. You are now free to beat the living crap out of the animal for as long as you please. Every time you hit it you will gain experience.
Your other party members present in battle will gain a small percentage of JP gained after each attack in the field of which the attack came from. If your really really really far in the game this tactic is a litle more difficult with inexperienced units. If you hire a new unit, regardless of it's position, it will start at lvl 1.
Surround that unit in a corner somewhere with all your units' armed except the the new guy. Have a mediator present with you as well, to use his/her skills to scare off enemy's by lowering their brave. Have the new character attacky your own people, and periodically heal them as neccesary.
