How to Learn New Skills in SaGa: Emerald Beyond

SaGa Emerald Beyond has one of the most bizarre progression systems for a JRPG. Players don’t learn new skills in SaGa Emerald Beyond in the same way that you expect to in most games of this ilk, which can make it quite confusing. Fortunately, I have your back on how to handle this situation.

How to Unlock New Skills in SaGa Emerald Beyond

Skills are the most important part of the combat system in this game. Unlike other JRPGs, you don’t have the usual normal attacks and the like. Instead, you have to use skills that require you to spend the stars you earn each turn in combat. As such, you need the best skills possible to succeed.

As for how you unlock new and more powerful skills in SaGa Emerald Beyond, that involves doing as many battles as possible. What is intriguing about this game is it almost harkens back to Final Fantasy II in some ways. The more battles you do, the more you have a chance of getting a new skill. This is entirely randomized, though, so you might get no skills in one battle, then get a skill in the middle of the next battle and another one as a reward for the battle after that. Just keep battling to get more skills.

Do You Level Up in SaGa Emerald Beyond?

What this awkward situation about skills in this game also means is you don’t have the traditional experience and level up system in this game. No, there is no XP your characters gain after battles at all. And they don’t even have a level like you would normally see in a JRPG like this.

Instead, characters have the usual stats like health, attack, defense, and the like. These stats randomly go up after each battle. You’ll have to grind fights with your characters in hopes of raising your stats in this game.

SaGa: Emerald Beyond is available now for Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, and PC.
