Outrage and Fantasista

Give top priority to learning Determined Princess which increases the experience value of the entire party at the cost of Laeticia suffering a 50% reduction to DEF and GUTS. Trade off, however, is worth it for leveling up fast. Once you learn the skill, do not forget to equip it in your passive skill set.
