They're all on the mainland, so be patient.

But there's something infinitely satisfying in laying the beatdown on those foes through good teamwork and tactics. :3

Well, why do you think we're around. xD

As I said before, part of the game is picking which skillset to use for a situation. You're just starting out now, but as you progress through the game (with my help and Jae's and anyone else's from here ), you'll become more proficient at choosing your spells.

If you click on the little numbers next to their name in the party list, you can actually bring up their skill bars and tell them which skills to use.

That indicates how many people are in that person's party. Usually you'll see 4 as the number since people on the starter island tend to run around with their heroes, making the party size 4.

I gave mine away already, but I'm pretty sure Jae wouldn't mind giving you hers.
