Birth by Sleep > Abilities

Abilities don’t work the same way they did in previous installments of the series. In Birth by Sleep, Abilities are acquired through Melding new Commands. When you Meld Commands, two initial Commands are required as ingredients. An optional third ingredient (a Crystal) can be added to the mix to give the resulting Command a new Ability. That Ability will be permanently added to the Abilities Menu once you have maxed out the level of the Command it is equipped to.

For example, Melding an Aero LV3 with a Fire Surge LV3 would normally give you an Aerial Slam Command. But if you were to add a Shimmering Crystal to those two ingredients, the resulting Aerial Slam Command would now have the Fire Screen Ability equipped to it. When the level of that Aerial Slam Command is maxed out, the Fire Screen Ability will permanently be added to your character’s Ability Menu. After that, the Fire Screen Ability can be equipped or removed whenever you want, even if the Aerial Slam Command is not in your current Battle Deck.

Abilities can also be equipped more than once to boost their effect. A complete list of available Abilities is provided below, including a the maximum number of times that Ability may be equipped to one character and a description of that Ability’s function.
