3. How to Raise Your Guardian and Why
The max one stat can be before awakening is 6, the max total of the stat numbers before awakening is 14. After awakening the stats can sometimes increase, unknown how or why
As an Article once said "everything but walking grows a guardian", so many things increases a guardian stat here's an idea of what increases what. Also some will only increase a guardians stat so far.
To Increase Power Stat:
-Use HP pots
-Kill monsters with Non magic skills
-Use Gun skills
To Increase Magic Stat:
-Use MP pots
-Use magic skills
-Have monsters use magic skills on you
-Attack monster with elemental weapon
To Increase Sense Stat:
-Drill for Items
-Use MP pots(half the speed of magic stat)
-Use Shuriken Skills
-Block Monster Attacks
To Increase Charm Stat:
-Dodge Monster Attacks
-Pick Up gelder (auto-loot does not work)
-Use Card Consuming skills, like Card Fling
-Look at peoples profiles
-Sell items to an NPC
-Use HP pots (half the speed of power stat)
The highest stat determines which guardian you will receive when you awaken it, it you have two stats that are the same it will go by which got to that number first.
The stats also determine the number of skill slots, meaning if your guardian has a 5 in power it will have 5 power skill slots. If your guardian grows after awakening it will have skill slots to match that, but stll no idea how that works.
4. Skills Guardian Can Learn
Guardians can only learn 1st job skills. If you know the skill just open your skill window and drag it to the guardians skill section, if you don't then you'll have to buy the skill card and drag it from the cards menu. Some have had issues teaching the guardian a skill with a prerequisite, I only had issues with augmentation skills like needing magic arrow before arrow rush. These are the skills they can learn.
-Mana Ring Booster
-Mana Storm (People say this skill works horribly)
-Magic Defense Breaker
Each guardian also has a unique skill based on it's type, it is a freebie that will not show up on it's skill list, will NOT take a skill slot, and CANNOT be deleted.
