How to Unlock
After the party has saved El Ciclo in the past, returning to the town in the present will allow the player to sign up for the Excellence Grading Organization.
How to Enter
There is a building behind the church where the player can sign party members up for the Excellence Grading Organization. The man in the front of the desk will tell give a description of what it consists.
There are three categories: Strength, Wisdom, and Style. The player can sign up party members for all three categories if they so choose. The player can check on the party's current ranking by looking at the boards in front of the clock tower.
When the player reaches the first
Strength deals with a particular party member's current attack power. This includes the current weapon.
Actually only the strength stat matter,you need at least 105 strengh to win first place, Danpa the champ has 104 strengh, the weapon doesn't matter.
Wisdom deals with a particular party member's current intelligence score.
You need 120+ int to win (as with rose u cant win before doing the lore hat quest)
Style deals with a particular party member's current appearance score.
You need 200+ APR to win first place (note that the combo bonus dont show up in the stat window)
There are several ways on improving your score in any particular rank.
Stronger weapons will improve the score of a party member, meaning that if a party member should have the Metal King Sword or the Oceano Sword, they will have a very high power ranking. Since the Hero and Aira can equip the best weapons and have great strength growths, they are best suited for this category.
Using Strength Seeds will increase the player's strength stats. Usually, a strength seed will increase strength 1-2 points. Using these in conjunction with a strength class will increase strength by more than 2 points.
Mastering the Dragoon, Godhand, and similar monster classes will give an increase to strength.
Becoming classes like Mage and Cleric that emphasize on intelligence will fare better for that party member. Since Maribel and Melvin have great intelligence growths, they are best suited to this category.
Using Intelligence Seeds will increase the player's strength stats. Usually, a Intelligence Seed will increase intelligence 1-2 points. Using these in conjunction with a magic class will increase intelligence by more than 2 points.
Mastering the Sage and similar monster classes will give increases to intelligence.
Completing the Dr. Azmov side quest will net the player a Lore Hat, which when equipped, will increase intelligence by 30 points.
Becoming classes like TeenIdol that emphasize on appearance will fare better for that party member.
Using Graceherbs will increase the player's appearance stats. Usually, a Graceherb will increase appearance 1-2 points. Using these in conjunction with a style class will increase appearance by more than 2 points.
Mastering the Teenidol and similar monster classes will give increases to appearance
