To unlock this ability in Star Ocean the Second Story R, you need to complete the following requirements.

  • The character needs to have the Nimble Fingers talent.
  • You need Courage and Poker Face skills.
  • Lastly, you will need a Theif's Glove or Magician's Glove.

How to get Nimble Fingers

Nimble Fingers is one of the random skills you get with your characters. You can check if you have that by going to the Camp Menu and going to the Status option. Here, you have to press the button for Switch Pages, and it will show you all the talents you have.

If you don't have NImble Fingers and want to get it early on, your best bet is to restart the game from the start. This way, you might end up with Nible Fingers as your starting talent, and you can keep repeating it until you get it.

How to get Courage and Poker Face skills

For these two, you have to open the Camp Menu and go to the Improve option. In here, look for Courage and Poker Face under the IC/Specialty tab and spend one skill point on each.

How to get Thief's Glove

Lastly, the Theif's Glove is available at the shop in Harley City. You can go there as soon as you leave Krosse City, which is pretty early. However, it will cost you 40,000, and here are the best ways to make money for it.

  • Buy eggs and dairy and cook them to sell for profile.
  • The other way is to level Determination skills in the Improve menu to 10 and then level Purity, which gives you money for each level. You can make 100,000 by leveling Purity up to level 10.
