||==========================================================================|/


Introduction
---------------
So you've decided to look at my guide. Well, first I think it's important that
you know exactly what it's about. This guide is here to explain about
abilities. Abilities are skills or powers that you can make more efficient as
you spend experience in the schools of Strength, Skill and Will.

I hope that my guide allows you to make an early decision about which
Abilities are worth trying to get the Mastery level of. This is especially
true when looking at Will abilities. By looking at my guide, you can compare
all of their damage and effects easily without having to worry about making
the wrong choices.

If you wish to point out any errors or missing information email me at

Be sure to include 'Fable II - Abilities Guide' as the subject. Damn spam!


Without further ado - the guide!

                            /|==================|\
                            ||    Experience    ||
                            \|==================|/

============================================================================|\
  Gaining experience                                                        ||
----------------------------------------------------------------------------||
  As you kill enemies you will notice that they drop green and other        ||
  coloured orbs of light. These are experience orbs. The green orbs come    ||
  from the enemies' own powers and knowledge. These always appear when an   ||
  enemy is defeated. Blue, yellow and red orbs appear when you use Strength,||
  Skill or Will (respectively) to kill an enemy. To collect your experience ||
  orbs after or during a fight, pull and hold the right trigger. If you are ||
  knocked out when there are experience orbs around, they will disappear. If||
  things are looking bad, collect that experience in case you lose it! You  ||
  can also drink potions to give yourself any kind of experience. General   ||
  experience potions cost more because general experience can be used to    ||
  increase any ability in any school (more on that later).                  ||
============================================================================||
  Bonus experience                                                          ||
----------------------------------------------------------------------------||
  As you get better at fighting (using special fighting moves, mixing up    ||
  melee, ranged and will) you will notice that you get bonus experience at  ||
  the end of a fight. Bonus experience increases the experience you collect ||
  by the percentage shown at the top of the screen. This can be very useful ||
  to help you increase your abilities faster. A clever tactic to use when   ||
  increasing your abilities is to save any experience potions you have until||
  after a battle in which you think you did extremely well. The bonus       ||
  percentage also applies to experience from potions. The more experience   ||
  potion gives, the better. This tactic can allow you to gain high amounts  ||
  of experience when using the highest quality potions (62,500 experience). ||
============================================================================||
  Spending experience                                                       ||
----------------------------------------------------------------------------||
  So, you've just cleaned out a field of beetles or a cave of Hobbes and now||
  you have a ton of experience to spend. There are 2 ways in which you can  ||
  get to the abilities screen. As you gain enough experience to get a new   ||
  ability, it will tell you at the top of your screen. Press up on the D-pad||
  at this time to go to the abilities screen. The other way is to pause the ||
  game and use the left thumbstick or the bumper buttons to scroll to the   ||
  abilities page. From here you can choose your school and then the ability ||
  that you want to increase. If you decide you don't need or want a certain ||
  ability anymore, press Y to discard it and get half the experience back as||
  general experience.                                                       ||

                            /|==================|\
                            ||  Strength - STR  ||
                            \|==================|/

============================================================================|\
Strength is the most important school for warriors. It increases their power||
and knowledge of advanced combat techniques such as Flourishing and blocking||
attacks. There is one ability here though, that can be useful to the other  ||
types of Heroes: Toughness. Increasing your toughness is practically a must ||
no matter what type of Hero you are. Relying on Potions of Life to increase ||
your health is not a good idea. Later on in the game, enemies can kill you  ||
in a single shot if you have low toughness, even if you used Potions of     ||
Life. Increasing the Physique Ability will make you more muscular.          ||

  Brutal Styles | Total exp: 93,300                                 || ST.1 ||
============================================================================||
  Brutal Style 1: Blocking | exp: 300                                       ||
----------------------------------------------------------------------------||
  Hold X to block all incoming strikes, from any direction. You'll take a   ||
  step back, but you'll be safe.                                            ||
============================================================================||
  Brutal Style 2: Flourishes | exp: 3000                                    ||
----------------------------------------------------------------------------||
  Hold X to charge up for a Flourish. When you feel a rumble, release X to  ||
  deliver a blow powerful enough to smash through an enemy's block, or send ||
  unblocking enemies flying through the air! This will knock them to the    ||
  ground where your dog will be able to attack them.                        ||
  Be warned: if you're attacked while charging a Flourish, you'll           ||
  automatically block, and then have to start charging again.               ||
============================================================================||
  Brutal Style 3: Chain Attacks | exp: 18,000                               ||
----------------------------------------------------------------------------||
  By timing your strikes perfectly, you can chain strikes together, speeding||
  them up and increasing their damage. Watch for the subtle clues that let  ||
  you know the exact time window in which to press X. In addition, while    ||
  reloading a ranged weapon, if you tap Y at the moment you hear the        ||
  reloading sound, you'll reload instantly.                                 ||
============================================================================||
  Brutal Style 4: Counters | exp: 72,000                                    ||
----------------------------------------------------------------------------||
  Just as an enemy is about to strike you, tap X while pointing LS in his   ||
  direction to Counter his move. He'll be spun around and left dazed for a  ||
  finishing move!                                                           ||

                            ||   Skill - SKL    ||
                            \|==================|/

============================================================================|\
  Skill is the most important school for rangers. It increases their damage ||
  and accuracy with ranged weapons as well as teaching them advanced tactics||
  such as aiming for certain body parts and rolling to avoid damage. Like   ||
  Strength, there are a couple of abilities here that can aid other forms of||
  combat. The first ability is the Dextrous Styles. The first level of      ||
  Dextrous Styles allows you to roll, which is useful for any Hero about to ||
  be hit by a bandit lunging at you with a club aimed for the back of your  ||
  head. Another useful ability - this time for melee characters - is Speed. ||
  The more you increase speed the faster you can swing your melee weapon.   ||
  Increasing the Accuracy ability will make you a lot taller.               ||
============================================================================|/


============================================================================|\
  Dextrous Styles | Total exp: 93,300                               || SK.1 ||
============================================================================||
  Dextrous Style 1: Roll | exp: 300                                         ||
----------------------------------------------------------------------------||
  While facing an opponent with your weapon unsheathed, tap A to roll in any||
  direction. You won't take any damage while rolling, so use it to stay     ||
  alive in tough spots!                                                     ||
============================================================================||
  Dextrous Style 2: Aimed Ranged Attack | exp: 3000                         ||
----------------------------------------------------------------------------||
  Hold Y to enter Aim mode, which allows you to manually aim using the LS.  ||
  Once your reticule is close to an enemy, it will stick to them for easier ||
  targeting. Flick the LS while you're locked onto an enemy to instantly    ||
  switch to other nearby enemies.                                           ||
============================================================================||
  Dextrous Style 3: Zoom | exp: 18,000                                      ||
----------------------------------------------------------------------------||
  Holding the aim button Y longer will zoom you closer to a locked enemy.   ||
  The more you zoom, the more powerful your shot will be.                   ||
============================================================================||
  Dextrous Style 4: Sub-Targeting | exp: 72,000                             ||
----------------------------------------------------------------------------||
  While holding the aim button Y, hold LT to bring up the Sub-Targeting     ||
  cursor. You can use this to choose which part of the enemy's body to aim  ||
  at. Use LS to switch between body parts. Experiment with different enemies||
  to see what you can hit!                                                  ||

  Better accuracy will allow you to increase the damage you do with all guns||
  and crossbows.                                                            ||

  Increases the speed of all your strikes, and how quickly you reload your  ||

                            ||    Will - WLL    ||
                            \|==================|/

============================================================================|\
  Will is the absolute most important ability school for Will Users.        ||
  Increasing Will abilities will make your lower level spells more powerful ||
  and your higher level spells charge quicker. You can only have 1 spell for||
  each spell slot at a time. So finding the right combination of spells is  ||
  important. Practically any Will ability (or spell) can be used with melee ||
  or ranged characters to aid in combat. For example, slowing time while you||
  line up a headshot or raising the undead to help you fight a large group  ||
  of bandits. I think it is wise for any Hero to invest some experience in  ||
  this school for support spells during combat. Increasing your knowledge   ||
  of Will powers will make you develop will lines on your body, similar to  ||
  how lava flows through the cracks of an earthquake.                       ||
