Support Abilities Guide

by Lassarina Aoibhell

This abilities guide names all the Support Abilities, indicates how many stones you need to equip them, describes the abilities and indicates who can use them. Because the items and the amount of AP required to learn abilities vary by character, please see the characters guide to determine how your characters should learn them. I've done my best to make this guide as accurate as possible, but if you should find a mistake, please let me know.
