Hey everyone,

I was looking at the skill section of the database and realised you can choose to Scope None. Does anyone know what that could be used to do, does it have a useful purpose in some way?

I'm guessing if you add a common event and target nothing it can be useful in that sense and way, is there any other examples?

Thanks!

By default, not really. But with plugins and notetags there are a lot more battle effects you can do which don't affect any particular battler.

By using the skill to call a common event whitout requiring a target either friend or foe, maybe you want a skill that summons a vehicle, opens up a crafting menu or opens a world map (for teleporting maybe?)

"none" means that the player can't use the skill without a scripted override as it will never be able to be visible for the player.
By default that is used for several enemy skills because the enemy attack patterns can still use all skills independently of skill type.
It is also used for attack and guard because those skills have scripted overrides in the buttons of the battlesystem, and this prevents them from appearing again in the normal skill lists.

He mentioned scope, so I think he means that instead of skill categorization.

It's mostly for common event triggering skills that have nothing to do with target selection. One way I use it is for my party teleport spell (exit dungeons, teleport to previously-visited towns, etc)

In last 5 years, I have bought 4 MSI computer components and had issues with all 4 of them. With two of them these issues were so huge the board was quite unusable. I think it's safe to day it's my last MSI product purchase.
Thanks Thesaurus.com for letting me know another word for 'noted' is 'noted'.
