I put off advancing this for so long, since I was under the same impression as most in this thread - that once you get 100% preparation rate, that's it with sp.we.

I ended up advancing this a long way and noticed probably the biggest change i've felt with a skill. My specials went from taking 3-4 rounds to launch, to the next round. I can also now queue up 2-3 specials and they'll all go off, sometimes 2 in the same round as well. Before I advanced it, if I queued them I would just lose the moment with them. So basically it massively reduces the AP associated with specials.

Regarding difficulty to hit or defend against specials, I didn't notice a difference, so I believe this has no effect on those.

So yes, definitely worth a good bunch of xp being dumped into it!
