■ Develop your abilities as you go about your day!
To find success in your day-to-day, you will need to maximize your Stats—Academics, Charm, and Courage.
You can improve your Stats by studying or working a job. If your Stats aren’t high enough, you won’t have access to certain places or be able to rank up your Social Links further, so try your best to improve them.
・ Dorm Life
Improve Your Stats While Enjoying Student Life:
Hang out with your friends while making the most of everything the dorm has to offer. There are various things you can do, from cooking and studying to reading and watching DVDs, and even gardening on the roof.
You can improve your Stats by spending time with your friends, and they can even acquire Characteristics—passive skills that can help you out in battle. You’ll also get to glimpse another side of your friends!
Features That Help in Battle and Exploration:
The dorm lounge has a computer that can be used for studying or collecting intel. You can use it to raise your Stats or acquire useful skills for battle and exploring.
Friends who you’ve spent time within the dorms can learn special skills called Characteristics. These can be a ton of help in battle—some can increase critical hit rates or decrease the SP cost of healing skills. Try to make time for your friends!
・ Characters You Can Meet at Gekkoukan High
