Power Letters!?!

  1. When using a skill, I always see a letter in the stats ex. E + 190% I understand that the 190% has to do with the upgrades on the skill but what does that letter mean???????????

  1. Each letter corresponds to how much powerful the Special is. There are seven letters, which are F, E, D, C, B, A, and S, with F being the lowest and S being the highest. The exact percent that they empower the Special, however, is still under investigation, so we can't give you a full detail on those letters.

  1. Like many Classes in Japan, abilities are divided like your grades would be, F,E,D,C,B,A, and then an additional class S. F-A get progressively stronger, S is stronger than A. If you boost Fire once, it reads as F x105% means that it does base damage of F class, plus an additional 5%, and then damage is further increased by the level of your spell. When you go to a red witch and use Special, her magic shows up, and there is an exp bar, and next to it a number, and then the SP cost. The level actually modifies the strength of the attack greater than the percentage. However, the exact formula hasn't been cracked yet, so you should still use your best judgment.

  2. In addition to the previous two answers, I find that the letters F - S don't have an exact formula to go by, but rather they're rough descriptions of a skill's power relative to another (sort of like class tiers). The only way to truly know whether you should go with a cheap F attack or an expensive E attack is trial and error under your own judgement. Typically though, it's best to keep a mix of everything, since you'll undoubtedly run into situations where using an S rank attack that depleats half of your SP is just silly when an F will do the trick.

  3. It should also be noted that in addition to the above (magicwomanm's response is the most complete, I'd say) that 2 attacks of the same letter grade do not mean they are the same strength.

    For example, Big Swing Slicer and Seesaw Axe (the first 2 Axe specials) both use an E Power rating. Seesaw Axe hits for more damage than Big Swing Slicer. This was noted when I was comparing the two early on, and when Big Swing Slicer was hitting for ~2600, Seesaw Axe was hitting for ~3200.
