  1. Honestly, this is entirely up to the individual, but these are the ones I use:

    Lloyd - I don't really like any of his Compound EX Skills, but I always get him Personal, Ability Plus, and Add Combo.

    Colette - If you regularly use her for battle, get Life Up, Spirit Up, Life Thief, and Spirit Thief. Otherwise, get Item Getter or Item Finder.

    Genis - Concentrate.

    Kratos/Zelos - Super Blast. If you choose something else, Super Chain is an absolute must.

    Raine - Concentrate.

    Sheena - Sheena doesn't have any I really like, either. It's usually Life Up, Spirit Up, and Phys. Status.

    Presea - Glory.

    Regal - Glory.

    To know which EX Skills give those Compound EX Skills, look them up in just about any faq. The EX Skills guide also lists them, but it uses rough translations for the names of the skills, so it might not make sense.
