All of the battles with wolves and armored men brandishing poles yield experience, called GP points, for your party members. When you finally level up in Tales of Xillia you receive a Re-real Orb, which can be used to bolster one of the game’s six stats. Strength, vitality, intelligence, spirit, agility, and dexterity are your choices.
Strength determines the amount of damage you deal and makes guard breaks easier. Vitality boosts defense and resistance to guard breaks. Intelligence effects your offensive magic ability and chance of dealing status attacks. Spirit is your magic defense and resistance to status effects. Agility is tied to your movement speed and techniques like artes. Dexterity is also linked to the power of your artes and chance to strike with a critical hit.
Milla, Elise, and Leia, the three ladies in Tales of Xillia, will have Idolm@ster costumes too.
