Greatly increase your projection effectiveness. Only can be used after raise your projection stauts 5 times (via fortification or pre-projection) in one battle. See the upper left icon to know whether you’re ready to use it or not (yellow stigmata icon).
How to obtain:
You’ll obtain this automatically before the battle with Assassin at Week 5.
Note: Archer skills need something called projections. You can see projection effect on the left part of the screen. The higher the number it display, the more effective your skill is gonna be (damage, chance to inflict status effect on your enemies, ect).
If you try to cast the spell before it reaches minimum projection, the skill may not work.

|99||Fake Helix Sword||Pierces an enemy. REQ: projection (3)||70|
Archer rely on physical attacks so put your skill point at Strength and Defense (little bit on agi). You don’t need any status at luck or magic. I finish the game with A on strength, B on defense, C on agility.
Matrix Level E guide (these choices are taken from Japanese website):
|4;6||??||Rani’s route; talking about vampires|
|5;6||No choice||Will give info about his noble phantasm|
|5;7||No choice||more info about him|
|7;3||3rd option||ask about his name|
From my experience, I don’t follow these guidelines (I am pretty sure that I missed 1st week conversation) but I still get Matrix level E at the end of this game. I think you only need to ask about his name on week 7 (CMIIW). Matrix Progression”. So for safe reason, just follow choices listed on the table and ask his name at week 7 day 3.
Matrix level 1: from beginning?? (Please confirm, I can’t remember)
Matrix level 2: Week 5 day 6, when he’s telling you about his noble phantasm
Matrix level 3: After the battle with Assassin
Matrix level E: ask about his name on week 7 day 3 on your private room.
Special items and conversation you get from him:
Archer gives you an item based on
So just do those things and talk to him in private room (normal dialogue). If you have successfully meet conditions above , he’ll give you the item through the conversation
Elixir, Magic Crystal Sphere, and forgot anyone want to help ?? (with the requirement if you remember)
Most important item is Scoat of arms. It increases your max Mp by 150. It’s considered a special servant item (of course..) so it won’t be carried over to new game +.
