This is a list of skills, also known commonly as techs, in Romancing SaGa 3.

Overview

See also: More info on glimmering skills can be found at Tech Sparking and Tech Spark Types.

Skills are abilities that characters learn and use during battle. They can deal more damage than a regular attack, inflict additional effects or even guard against enemy attacks. There are eight types of skills, one for each of the weapon types and another for martial arts, which is barehanded. Some skills may only be used by a certain weapon and other techs may be used by multiple weapon types.

Skills can also be forgotten and learned from the skills menu. Skills highlighted in red indicate unlearned skills.
