Field Skills are actions that can be performed by the party out of battle that affect how they traverse the envirioment. The party must learn new skills as they progress through the game to reach new areas. Skills can be performed by pressing the CANCEL button on the field.
Some field skills can stun enemies outside of battle for a few moments. Approaching a stunned enemy and starting the battle will grant an extra action to the current party leader.
Field skills can also trigger Ancient Crystals, allowing the party to save the game.
