===============================================================================
                      1.0 Introduction to Craymel Artes
===============================================================================
Craymel Artes are equivalent to magic for Tales of Destiny 2. There are only 2
Craymel Mages in ToD2, Meredy and Keele. They each start with 3 Craymel Artes.
And the only way for them to obtain new Craymel Artes is through the Greater
Craymels and fringe. And what spells they have will depend on what Craymels you
give them. In order for a Craymel Arte to be used, first, the needed Craymels
must be at a certain level. Then the combination of Craymels must be correct.
After the requirements are met, you must then fringe before the spell is
usable.

For Example, you want the Craymel Arte, Heal. First, Undine and Sylph must be
at their required levels. Once they are at their required levels, you can
fringe the spell. But in order to fringe it, you must put Undine and Sylph at
seperate Craymel Cages, i.e. Meredy must have either Undine/Sylph and Keele
must have the other one. Only then you can fringe. Then the spell will be
usable. But who can use it will depend on who is holding the Craymel Arte's
element. Heal is a Water Arte, so if Meredy is having Undine, she will have
the spell and vice versa. Simple enough.

You can switch Craymels anytime you have access to the menu and the C.Cage
Command. So if you want to switch spells, it's possible at anytime. So you can
cater to your battle needs for your current situation. But if you switch
Craymels, please remember you need to fringe again in order for the switch to
be in effect. If you don't, then the switch won't take place. For instance,
Meredy is now having Heal and you want to switch it to Keele. First, you have
to exchange the 2 Craymels. Then fringe. If you don't, Meredy will still have
Heal. Remember, a Craymel Arte is only usable if the 2 involved Craymels are in
seperate Craymel Cages. If they are in the same Craymel Cage, then the spell
cannot be used.

One question remains, who should hold what Craymel Artes? Well, it all depends
on you. But here's my personal preference. I checked how often a character will
do a certain thing at the Strategy Screen. The scale on how often they will do
a certain thing in battle while in Auto is measured from 1 to 5 with 1 being
the least often. You can set the frequency of how often you want each Craymel
Mage to do something anytime. Battle TP means how often they will use their TP
to cast spells against enemies and Recover TP means how often they will use
spells on their allies. Judging from their stats, Meredy has more Max TP than
Keele, but Keele has a higher Intelligence stat than Meredy. And if you control
Keele, he has a mini D-Pad that appears when he uses Battle Craymel Artes, and
pressing it makes him cast the Craymel Arte at a slightly faster rate(I'm not
100% sure, but after some observation, it actually seems to do that. It's the
same for Max), but Meredy does not have this ability. Thus, Meredy is more
situable to use healing Craymel Artes since she has more TP and can affort to
heal more often, while Keele is more situable to cast offensive spells. So I
give healing spells to Meredy, while I mainly have more powerful offensive
Craymel Artes on Keele. I also throw in spells that boost stats to the both of
them, letting them cast them as they see fit, but they usually only cast it
against bosses. It's all up to you how you want to arrange the Craymel Artes,
and this faq is to help you in deciding which Craymel Artes you want to give to
who, cause it is impossible to have every single spell avaliable between the
both of them.

How do you tell when a Craymel Arte is avaliable for use? After battle, there
may be a message that says either "Fringe to get new Craymel Arte" or "Activity
detected in Craymel Cage". The first message means that you can immediately
fringe to get the new spell. The latter means that you can fringe to get a new
spell, but your combination of Craymels is not correct. How do you tell whether
a spell is ready for fringe at the C. Cage Command? If your combination of
Craymels is correct and the Craymel Arte's color is Yellow, it means you can
fringe it to get a new spell. If it's purple, then the spell is not avaliable
yet. If your combinations of Craymels is incorrect, and the spell's color is
purple, it means you can fringe the spell as soon as the combination of
Craymels is correct. If it is grey, then the spell is not avaliable for fringe
yet. After fringe, if a spell is white in color, it means that the spell is
usable currently. If it's red, that means the spell is usable already, but the
Craymel Conbination is incorrect. Knowing what each color means helps a lot
sometimes.

* The maximum number of Craymels a Craymel Cage can have is 6. You cannot have
  more than that. And the max level of a Greater Craymel is Lv 30.

===============================================================================
                            2.0 Greater Craymels
===============================================================================
========================Summoning the Greater Craymels=========================
In order to summon a Greater Craymel into battle, the Craymel that is to be
summoned first needs to be at maximum C. Vitality, which is on a gauge of 10.
To raise the C. Vitality of a Craymel, you must use a Craymel Arte of the
element of the Craymel you want to raise the C. Vitality of. Once it is at Max,
the game will tell you in battle. Then you can summon the Greater Craymel. But
if you don't summon the Craymel and use a Craymel Arte, the summon of the
Greater Craymel may disappear as it's C. Vitality may decrease. If you have
more that one Craymel in one Craymel Cage, casting spells of one element may
also reduce the C. Vitality of another Craymel. You can also use Crystals or
Shards of the Craymel's element to raise their C. Vitality of the Craymel
outside of battle.

================Conditions that causes C. Vitality to Decrease=================
- All these apply to both Craymel Mages. The Craymel Arte of the other Craymel
  Mage will affect the C. Vitality of the Greater Craymel, regardless who holds
  the Greater Craymel. For example, Keele has MAX Vitality for Volt. If Meredy
  casts Lightning, the C. Vitality will be reduced to 5. This can also help to
  charge up the C. Vitality of the Greater Craymel. So in a simple run down,
  it does not matter which Craymel Mage is holding the Greater Craymel. As long
  as a Craymel Arte is casted, it will affect the Greater Craymel in
  association with the casted Arte's element.

- Only one Greater Craymel can be at MAX C. Vitality at one time. If another
  Greater Craymel reaches MAX C. Vitality, the Craymel that has MAX Vitality
  first will be reduced to 9. Only one Craymel Mage can have MAX C. Vitality at
  one time. If Meredy has MAX C. Vitality for Undine, then if Keele makes
  Sylph's C. Vitality MAX, then Undine's C. Vitality will be reduced to 9.

- When a Greater Craymel's C. Vitality is 10 and you use a Craymel Arte of it's
  element, the C. Vitality will be reduced to 5.

- When you use the element of a Greater Craymel too much, it will reduce the
  C. Vitality of another Craymel that opposes it's element, most of which is
  weakness, by 1. It does not affect all Craymels but only those that has
  elements that does not agree with each other. For instance, if you use Ice
  Artes about 4 times in battle, it will raise Celsius' C. Vitality by 2, but
  it will reduce Efreet's C. Vitality by 1. I'm not very sure of the numbers,
  but it's around that number of times. It also works the other way round.

-----Craymel Element Opposion-----
Celsius(Ice) <-> Efreet(Fire)
Sylph(Wind) <-> Gnome(Earth)
Undine(Water) <-> Volt(Lightning)
Rem(Light) <-> Shadow(Dark)
Maxwell(Elemental) <-> Sekundes(Time)


* The higher the C. Vitality of a Greater Craymel, the faster it is to cast the
  Craymel Arte of it's element. That's why summoning a Greater Craymel is very
  fast in battle.

* Legend: N = Normal, H = Hard, HC = Hardcore
* The percentages shown here are only a rough estimate of what I see from the
  Monster Collection Book.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                 2.1 Undine
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Greater Water Craymel, Undine. Primary Craymel of Inferia.
Element: Water(W)
Location: Undine Stream, Inferia
Water of Life shall not protect those that cause harm.(30 TP)

Comment: Undine is really cool, and a life saver. Though Undine does not do
much damage, but she heals your entire party to full HP. And Undine is the
corner stone of all the Healing Craymel Artes. Undine is very useful till the
end of the game.

Greater Wind Craymel, Sylph. Primary Craymel of Inferia.
Element: Wind(Wd)
Location: Sylph Cavern, Inferia
Those engulfed in the whirlwind are dropped into an abyss of doom.(40 TP)

Comment: Sylph is a pretty good summon, and it can be easily brought to max
C. Vitality. Don't look down on Sylph, this little guy packs quite a punch!
Sylph will probably be less used as the game progresses.

                                  2.3 Efreet
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Greater Fire Craymel, Efreet. Primary Craymel of Inferia.
Element: Fire(F)
Location: Efreet Gorge, Inferia
Raging hands of inferno will burn everything in sight.(50 TP)

Comment: Efreet is a pretty good summon too, and it can be brought to max
C. Vitality pretty easily too. Why doesn't he have any legs? Efreet is the same
as Sylph. He may become less used as the game progresses.

Greater Earth Craymel, Gnome. Primary Craymel of Celestia.
Element: Earth(E)
Location: Mine of Gnome, Celestia
Forces of Earth are summoned to protect it's soils.(60 TP)

Comment: It seems that Gnome is pretty cute himself, with such a large nose and
a round body. Gnome calls out smaller gnomes, then he plunges from the ground
at the enemy. Gnome also has an added effect of poisoning the enemy. Overall,
it's an okay summon.

Greater Ice Craymel, Celsius. Primary Craymel of Celestia.
Element: Ice(I)
Location: Mt. Celsius, Celestia
Blades of ice will punish all in their path.(70 TP)

Comment: This is really a cool summon, and a pretty strong one at that. It
takes quite some time to charge up the C. Vitality to max. Celsius has an added
effect of freezing the enemy too, which with your next hit, you will do major
damage on the enemy. Moreover, she has a really nice pet Ice Wolf!(I want one!)
One of my more favourite summons.

There is no escaping the web of electromagnetic pulse.(80 TP)

Comment: This one takes some time to charge up also, especially when it's
default spell is a bit, not so good. But the Volt summon is as good as Celsius,
and it has an added effect of stunning the enemy too. And I wonder how does
Volt become mini Volts.

Greater Dark Craymel, Shadow. Governing Craymel of Celestia.
Element: Dark(S)
Location: Shadow Cave, Celestia
All are invited to the depths of dark.(90 TP)

Comment: To even reach Shadow, you need the Aifish. He is located under the
seas of Celestia in a cave and a rough location of 5, 12 GPS. You can locate it
very easily on above water too. It's on the next island just northeast of
Balir's Castle. You can see a small mountain with a hole on it on that island.
Get on the Aifish and dive. You will see Shadow Cave. Shadow is also a summon
that I like. This Greater Craymel does pretty good damage too. And his default
spell is one of my favourite spells.

                                  2.8 Rem
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Greater Light Craymel, Rem. Governing Craymel of Inferia.
Element: Light(L)
Location: Regulus Knoll, Inferia
The scared light saves only those that follow the holy path.(90 TP)

Comment: You have to face off with Rem at the door to where the seal of Nereid
lies, although Nereid is already free a very long time ago. How he escaped
still lies beyond my comprehension. When summoned, Rem heals your entire party
to full HP also resurrects any fainted characters to full HP and recovering
all characters of any status problems. You won't find yourself using Rem very
often. If you do use Rem, expect her to be your Life Saver, saving your entire
party from the brink of death. Rem is best used manually or through your
command. 90 TP is quite a heafty cost and the AI will summon it even if only
one person in your party needs to be healed. So seal off Rem and any light
spells when Rem hits Max C. Vitality.

                                 2.9 Maxwell
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Greater Elemental Craymel, Maxwell. Supreme Craymel.
Element: Elemental(El)
Location: Farlos Sanctuary, Inferia
The power of all elements combined. The flames of judgement shall
arise.(100 TP)

Comment: Maxwell is a funny old man. He went into the wrong Craymel Cage! To
find Maxwell, you must first have the Seyfert Key and access back to Inferia.
Go to the back of the Farlos Sancutary and 'talk' to the statue at the back of
the Sanctuary. The Seyfert Key will glow and open a new path. Continue onwards
to find Maxwell. His summon is the strongest if you do all the summon
extensions, which is not very difficult to do. Maxwell is my favourite summon,
whenever I summon Maxwell, I'll summon extend it and it will end up burning a
big hole in my TP. But at least no normal enemy could survive that. ^_^

============================Maxwell Summon Extension===========================
- You must have beaten the game once and have access to Hardcore. Then fight
  and win one battle in hardcore. After that, the extension can be done at any
  game difficulty.
- You have to control the Craymel Mage that is summoning Maxwell. And naturally
  Maxwell's C. Vitality has to be at MAX before you can summon.
- Maxwell must be set at the Craymel Mage's normal button command input. It
  cannot be put at the Shortcut. And it does not work on all enemies, though it
  works on most enemies. All enemies must not die otherwise the summon cannot
  be continued.

- The first Maxwell summon TP cost can be reduced to 50 TP with the aid of a 
  Faerie Ring, but the summon extensions all cost 100 TP each and cannot be
  reduced with a Faerie Ring. Thus you need to have around 800 TP before you
  can do all the summon extensions.

1. Summon Maxwell. While this is in effect, hold <- + SQUARE until Dual the Sol
   is executed.
2. While Dual the Sol is in effect, hold CIRCLE until Eternity Swarm is
   executed.
3. While Eternity Swarm is in effect, hold X until Prismic Stars is executed.
4. While Prismic Stars is in effect, hold TRIANGLE until Shining Gate is
   executed.
5. While Shining Gate is in effect, hold SQUARE until Explosion Nova is
   executed.
6. While Explosion Nova is in effect, hold TRIANGLE + CIRCLE until
   Maxwell Minimus is executed.
7. While Maxwell Minimus is in effect, hold SQUARE + X + CIRCLE until
   Dimension Material is executed.

* These is written with the default controller settings. If it does not work,
  you need to press according to your settings. Thus it's <- + DEFEND, SKILLS,
  ATTACK, MENU, DEFEND, MENU + SKILLS, DEFEND + ATTACK + SKILLS.

                                 2.10 Sekundes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Greater Time Craymel, Sekundes. Supreme Craymel.
Element: Time(Ti)
Location: Shizel's Castle, Orbus Barrier Surface
And so, time freezes...(150 TP)

Comment: To find Sekundes, you will need access to the left door at the start
of Shizel's Castle. And go left until the end and take the elevator down.
Continue going down and into a room called 'Time Space'. Sekundes will appear
before you and join you without having to fight him. After that, you can
challenge him anytime by going back to the Time Space and at the edge of the
platform, accept his challenge. Sekundes is the best summon there is, but his
default spell takes a bit longer than your average spell to finish. But if you
summon Sekundes, he will hit all enemies for about 8 times, doing a lot of
damage. And if any enemies refuses to die, they will get frozen in time, just
like using an hourglass. Truly one of the best summon and one of the strongest
one too. But I hate his default spell. Takes too long to finish it's animation
which makes a battle which could be won earlier longer. Which ends up making
me not summoning Sekundes often.

                              3.0 Craymel Artes
===============================================================================
I've already explained how Craymel Artes work in the intro, so I
don't expect to repeat myself.

* The levels indicated here are only a rough gauge of getting the Craymel Arte.
  It is the levels of my current Craymels at that time. The main problem with
  it are the Craymels that start very early, so if anyone has gotten the
  Craymel Arte at a lower level for a Craymel, please e-mail me.

==============================Craymel Artes Types==============================
Attack Craymel Arte - Craymel Artes that does damage to the enemy
Healing Craymel Arte - Restores status abnormalities or heals your allies
Support Craymel Arte - Craymel Artes that helps your allies or causes status
                       changes to your enemies
Power Up Craymel Arte - Craymel Artes that support your party. The Craymel Mage
                        holding the spell must be in battle in order for it to
                        activate. Activates automatically when a battle begins

* - Lowest Level for Greater Craymel to get this spell. (If you see a * beside
    any Craymels, that means it's its confirmed lowest level)

| Comment: I don't really find this spell that useful as the game progresses. |
|          I find that it misses too much sometimes if your fighters are      |

| Comment: This is an ok spell, though it's the strongest attack based Water  |
|          Craymel Arte you'll ever have. Luckily this spell can extend to a  |
|          spell called Maelstrom, which is better than Spread alone. Spread  |
|          can be used to knock the enemy away. But it's range is narrow, so  |
|          expect it to miss sometimes. But if you have Maelstrom, it's a     |
|          different thing altogether.                                        |

|          as Heal, so please always have a Craymel Mage in your active party.|
|          One big problem with this spell is that due to the time for the,   |
|          umm, Nurses to come to heal you, you may have fainted even before  |
|          the Nurses actually throw the 'medicine' at you. But, that's about |

| Comment: Cure heals about 90% of your Max HP. But Cure heals a little way,  |
|          too much that it will only be useful when your HP is in the Red    |
|          Zone. But if you heal a lot and often, Heal is the only single ally|
|          healing spell you'll ever need. Besides, I'm the one who controls  |
|          the healing spells, and I favour Maxwell over Cure. ^_^            |

| Comment: This is the final healing spell and the strongest. Although it does|
|          not heal all allies at once(It does when used out of battle though)|
|          This can end up saving you. Not only does this execute faster than |
|          Nurse, it can heal much more, that is, provided the character stays|
|          there. This is probably best combined with Heal. It ends up even   |
|          more helpful if you're the one controlling the Craymel Mage using  |
|          the spell, especially if you're like me, heal early and only heal  |
|          when you get to safe haven =). And best of all, when you get hit   |
|          and knocked into the healing zone, You heal back more damage than  |
|          you actually took. I find this more of a Life Saver than Nurse in  |
|          tough boss battles.                                                |

| Comment: Isn't there anything better than being able to revive fainted      |
|          characters? Ya, ya. This spell is useful too, and not to mention   |
|          handy. This spell is best used in normal enemy battles, and it     |
|          revives to 70% HP max. But please don't use this in the mist of a  |
|          boss battle especially when you need to heal and revive at the same|
|          time. Just use a Life Bottle and then either use Nurse or Restore. |
|          It's a more effective battle strategy.                             |

| Comment: This must be the cheapest and the best quick casting spell in the  |

| Comment: Cyclone has got to be the king of the combo Craymel Arte. You can  |
|          get quite a number of hits with this spell. Using it on heavy      |
|          enemies really can help you to get bigger combos. Using Cyclone on |
|          heavy enemies will not only stun the enemy, it can also do a       |
|          reasonable amount of hits, plus the enemy is stunned which means   |
|          you can continue the combo with Reid and Farah for even more hits. |
|          This is the spell that helped me with getting 100 hits for the     |
|          Combo Master title.                                                |

| Comment: Hmm, these kind of spells are relatively useless actually, unless  |
|          you have nothing bettter to do. But then once an ally is inflicted |
|          with support Craymel Artes, casting another one will erase the     |
|          previous one and casting the same spell on the same ally more than |
|          once won't increase it effects. Support Craymel Artes are virtually|
|          useless in this game, especially when compared with Star Ocean 2.  |
|          You probably won't find yourself using them much.                  |

| Comment: This can be useful or useless depending on whether you want to use |

| Comment: This may not be as good as Wind Blade for stunning, but Fireball is|

| Comment: This spell may not be useful overall, but it has one neat little   |
|          trick. If the spell misses the enemy, it will leave a small fire   |

|          without wasting an accessory slot. And it may or may not save you  |
|          in the mist of battle, depending on the situation.                 |

| Comment: Another useful Power Up. This is most useful for the frontline     |
|          attackers. They can use their TP more often and yet when they get  |
|          hit, it restores back. This way, they can afford to use more TP. I |
|          find this very useful in boss battles. You can let loose all your  |
|          best moves and yet you don't have to worry about your TP draining  |
|          too fast. Besides, I have never seen a perfect battle against      |
|          bosses anyway.                                                     |

| Comment: This is your very first spell that attacks all enemies. The damage |
|          and number of hits is not a lot, but at least it can break any     |
|          enemy that is charging. But you probably will not use it when it's |
|          avaliable, you have to sacrafice either Heal or Nurse to get this  |
|          spell.                                                             |

| Comment: Useful power up, although Freeze is not quite common.(I wish I had |
|          this for Mt. Celsius and against Celsius) But since Freeze is quite|
|          dangerous, preventing it without a Freeze Charm is handy, since it |
|          saves an equip slot.                                               |

| Comment: Not a really good spell, but not a bad one either. But this spell  |
|          is useful if you're controlling the Craymel Mage under Manual. When|

| Comment: Also a good and not so good spell in some sense. One thing, it's   |
|          slow to come out when executed which means missing the enemy.(That |
|          is why Indignation is the easiest to evade spell). But it has a    |
|          very strong damage which most other spells don't usually have and  |
|          does 2000+ damage per hit unless the enemy is strong against       |
|          Lightning.                                                         |

|          if the enemy is near you, but what the heck. At least if the enemy |
|          is crowded too close together, this spell will blow more than one  |
|          away.                                                              |

| Comment: Boosts defense. Same as Resist. But how come there are 2 similar   |
|          spells?                                                            |

| Comment: A pretty wide range spell that targets an enemy group. Does decent |

| Comment: Now we're onto the better stuff! This is the strongest single enemy|
|          attack spell(It can end up being group if the enemies are really   |
|          close). The last hit does the most damage. Use this against bosses.|
|          But this spell can be evaded if the enemy continues moving.        |

| Comment: This is probably the only Support Craymel Arte worth using. It     |
|          causes the target to constantly regenerate HP. I'm still not sure  |
|          about what heals the last damage received mean. If I'm not wrong,  |
|          it means the damage you last received from an attack, be it a combo|
|          or single hit attack, you will get healed the last figure that     |
|          appears. Oh well, I'm still not too sure, but this is the best     |
|          Support Arte of the lot.                                           |

| Comment: This is the widest range group Craymel Arte in the game. It does   |
|          1000+ damage per hit and doesn't end up putting the Craymel Mage in|
|          danger. One side note, make sure you target the middle enemy before|
|          the Arte executes for best effects. One of my most used Craymel    |
|          Artes until I get Shooting Star.                                   |

| Comment: Oh yeah! This is the best spell in the game! I trashed any other   |
|          spells after I got this, except spells that I use for quick casting|
|          It attacks all enemies, no matter where they are, not even         |
|          teleporting away can help them. Decent number of hits for combos   |
|          and an okay amount of damage. Take note that this spell executes   |
|          faster than Meteor Swarm and as fast as Holy Lance. Also one of the|
|          better spells for bosses. Since the Craymel combination for Holy   |
|          Lance and Shooting Star does not allow you to have it both on the  |
|          same Craymel Mage, you'll need both Craymel Mages for both spells. |

| Comment: Ugh, I really don't like this spell. Although it does a good amount|
|          of hits and has a fixed damage, it takes too long to finish,       |
|          Whereas Meteor Swarm can do a better job. And besides, the enemy   |
|          affected by it cannot be hurt by your other members as with you,   |
|          making it impractical to use a lot, when you just want to get on   |
|          and be done with the battle. Has some use against bosses but it may|
|          just cause Reid and Farah and even Chat to waste TP.               |

| Comment: I don't know what to say. I don't understand the text and never    |
|          bothered to use it anyway. But then, I think I know what it does.  |
|          Since no enemy can heal themselves, so I'm guessing that this Arte |
|          causes the enemy to recover from attacks slower than normal, thus  |
|          this spell is really only useful in aiding in getting higher combos|

|          really wonder if it works 100% on an enemy, no matter what kind of |

| Comment: Okay, another Power Up that protects against conditions. Weak is   |
|          not on the line of very dangerous, but more of irritating. Protect |
