Combat Tips

Spiritmasters have some great abilities, but they have a high BP cost. Luckily, they have Convert BP to raise their own BP.

  • If that is not enough, or you don’t like the high MP cost, try saving up with Default, brave once, then use your skill plus Moderation to recover one BP.
  • Make sure you have negative BP or you won’t gain, and try not to use when allies have positive BP or they lose one.
  • Having a Performer in the party can greatly help because they can add one BP to any ally.
