Skills are used only in the Story Mode option of Dissidia: Final Fantasy, on the Battle Stage and do not regenerate between Stages. Skills are randomly distributed at the beginning of each Story Level. Unlike HP and the EX Gauge, your skills status is retained throughout all of the levels so when you use them, you lose them. At first you won't have many different skills, but you gain more as you clear different stories. Some skills are effective against particular pieces and areas. While in Story Mode, first select the piece or area with the finger cursor, then open the Skill Menu with Square and use the skill. If you find Ether, you can replace skills you have already used with new ones. Deactivate skills that are still in effect by sellecting the skill again.
To unlock a new skill you must get one Star Bonus after beating all Chapters for one Story.
There are three different categories of skills :
- Recovery Skills : Skills that restore HP
- Support Skills : Skills that help you progress
- Offensive Skills : Skills that inflict damage
At any given time you can only maintain one skill per category. You can purchase skills that are not limited to one category from the PP Catalog.
