Players develop skills in four different categories.
Every skill has different requirements. Battle skills are gained through meeting certain requirements in fights. Evolution is mostly gained through specific jobs. Trade skills are gained through a mix of jobs, gathering, and gathering fights. Renown is gained through beating specific fights or eating rare items. It is the only skill that has no effect (with one exception) on your attributes.
