'A good day to you! I am pleased to find another Minstrel here in Archet. I should be happy to share what skills I have with you. First, though, I will give you some small advice, if you are willing to lend an ear to it.

'As you may already know, a Minstrel possesses a great power...the power to stir the spirit and raise hopes when all seems lost. When the spirit is roused, the body soon follows! A good Minstrel heals himself and his fellows, staving off even the most dire wounds.

'Learn the skill Major Ballad from me and show me that my teaching has given you mastery by entering combat with the training-dummy nearby and then using the skill Major Ballad skill.'


HINT:

Minstrels use Ballards to attack their enemies, lightly heal their fellows and themselves. These skills operate on a rotating system that allows the minstrel to have three special buffs on themselves at any given time. After the third buff is applied the next Ballard played will overwrite the first, then the second and so on.

Background

Your trainer wants you to use your new skills to prove that you are ready to face the many dangers that exist in the world.
