Hello, I'm back with my third guide ever counting my FAQ
on my banned account. This FAQ is about skills. 

This FAQ will tell you about the skill tree and the skill
points you get when you level up. I will also share the
classes with you of course. If there were no classes, then
why would the game need a skill tree? Ok, so, this FAQ will
only be seen here, at GameFAQs or any other site you have 
posted on. DO NOT do it for financial gains or I will hunt
you down and stuff my foot up your ass.


Send me mail:
Send me comments, fanmail, or anything related to this FAQ to:

[email protected]

If you are going to send me mail, put "DQIX skill guide" as the
title so I know you are sending me stuff related to this. If
you are sending me something you think is useful, please tell
me how you would like to be referred as.

[1] Author's note
--------------------

Hello once again, this FAQ, as you people can tell is 
about classes, skill points and the skill tree/list.
And not a walkthrough. I suck at writing this but whatever.

Let me tell you something about myself, I write these FAQs
mainly to get karma, increase my level and talk trash at
the RE3 PSX board with my buddies. So GameFAQs, please up
my account's level. Thx.

V 1.0 - 03/03/2011 (Singapore time)
        Completed FAQ. Everything done.




------------------------
[3] Game introduction
------------------------

Once again, the best game ever create by Nintendo and
Level 5. I hope you know the storyline, completed it,
and blah blah blah, so on and so forth.

I really wonder how Nintendo creates such good games.
Okay, enough about that, please read my FAQ.




--------------
[4] Classes
--------------

Classes, the "roles" you play in the game. There are a
total of 12 classes that you can get. Only 6 can be used
at the start, but as you progress further into the game
and complete certain quests, you can unlock the other 6
"advanced" classes.

I will only give the weapon skill sets, special skill,
Coup de Grace and Co-op de Grace here. No notes and
suggestions.

Ok, that's done. *whew*

It might not seem like it but it takes a while to type that all
down especially if you're slow like me.



-------------------
[5] Skill points
-------------------

Without skill points, you cannot get skills, obviously. The only
way to get skill points in this game is to level up. But you only
start getting them at level 5. The amount you get increases each
time then starts to get less when you hit level 40+ .

Anywho, the chart is here.


---------------------------------------------------------------------

     93                         2                           192
 
     95                         2                           194

     98                         2                           198
 
     99                         2                           200 
---------------------------------------------------------------------

You need 2600 skill points to master everything. Weapons and
special skills. Since you get a total of 200 points every
time you hit level 99 times 12 classes equals to 2400 points
only. So you have to revocate at least once in any class and
get to level 99 again.



-----------------
[6] Skill list
-----------------

Finally, the skill list. Below I will show you the list of

achieve.

You only need to get to a number of skill points to get that
certain skill. Just like the mini-medals.

time to finish. Basically 72 hours. Anyway, thanks to
Nintendo for making such a wonderful game. Thanks to
Level 5 for helping Nintendo create this wonderful game
and for creating the Professor Layton series as well.
And finally, thanks to my parents for not disturbing me
while I was creating this FAQ.

I hope you have benefittef from my FAQ, and happy Dragon
