Skills & Progression

Chained Echoes Basic Guide and FAQ

Acquiring a Grimoire Shard (GS) allows all party members to make use of it. Each GS grants an additional skill for you to unlock in the “Learn Skills” menu.

Action Skills

These skills are usable in battle and cost TP to execute. These skills are mostly unique to the respective character and have to be equipped.

Passive Skills

These influence battles by providing character-specific effects but do not consume TP and don’t need to be activated by the player, but like action skills have to be equipped.

Stats Booster

These are bonus stat increases you may choose instead of an action or passive skill and applied automatically upon unlocking them.

Unlocked skills or stat boosters are marked with a star.

Skill Levels

Each action and passive skill’s effects are separated into three levels. Upon unlocking a skill it starts at level 1. Over time, the levels gradually increase in level and become stronger or get reduced TP cost or both.

Leveling Skills

When in the Set Skills menu, you can spend a party member’s acquired SP to increase a skill’s level by pressing the assigned Level up button. A skill is MAX level upon reaching level 3 and marked with a star.

Class Skills

Unlike Character Skills, class skills can only be equipped in the separate panel labeled “Class ACTION/PASSIVE Skills”, but regular skills can be assigned to class skill slots.
Once maxing a class skill, it can be equipped in a character skill slot as well.
