Starting in Ver. 2.6.0, each function in the Allies menu has been separated into related categories.
・ Menu options like Level Up, Learn Skills, and other options related to strengthening Heroes will be located in Ally Growth.

An Auto-Learn function has been added and is located in Learn Skills.

The Auto-Learn function allows Heroes to use their accumulated SP to automatically learn available skills. If the Hero doesn't have enough SP to learn all the skills available to them, skills that fill empty slots will be learned first.

If a skill slot already has a skill equipped, a new skill for that slot will not be learned or equipped through Auto-Learn. To learn a new skill through Auto-Learn, any skill in the target slot must be unequipped in Equip Skills.

There are now eight types of favorite marks to use for your Heroes.
