How to Train Expertise

  • Un-equip all your equipment if it does not contribute to Expertise gain. The durability of your items (if equipped) will reduce over time.
  • Provoke a Gaki in Virtual Battle and lure it to a corner and use Guard continuously.
    • Luring to a corner is optional, but you won't interfere with someone else and less chance if someone mistakenly targets your Gaki.
    • Bring along some HP and MP recovery items.
