Charm Allies within a 2-tile radius deal +2 points of extra damage in battle
Dual Guard When user is in a defensive stance in a pairing, guard gauge fills faster
Speedtaker When user defeats enemy, gain Speed+2 until end of battle, all the way up to Speed+10

You can get one Lodestar seal per game through the free Before Awakening DLC. Lodestar is really great, especially for guarding your allies in pairup, and Speedtaker can snowball really fast until you can double-hit everything. Despite having somewhat lower Strength, the Lodestar is great Speed, Skill, and Luck. Dancing Blade builds on that.

Combine skills from Lodestar with skills from other classes like Swordmaster for more potency!
