Do you feel like they […] have lead to greater things?
Are there any skills that were ported over that you feel should be buffed/debuffed to better suit GBAFE?
See Leo and Zeta’s posts.
That and also having visual (audio works, but I’d prefer visual) feedback(?) when some skills apply (such as maybe seal skills; Which I said I would maybe work on after having done the rally thing so stay tuned I guess).
You should now be able to emulate that with character-based skill learning lists (however, I don’t think FEBuilder supports that in its editor yet (@7743)).
The skill system is great. And it’s great not only because skills are great on a technical standpoint, but also because it is the one project that has gotten and still is getting contributions from a good bunch of people (as opposed to just being circles’s thing from 2017).

(And I may have missed a few)
And that’s only for skill additions (reminder that the skill system also features a bunch of QoL and supporting hacks, which are also maintained by a bunch of people (including me, )).
Also, as Zeta kind of hinted at, the skill system buildfile is a good “shell” for hack projects.
(My issues with the skill system are mostly technical (and also things that I could work on “fixing” any time) so I don’t know how relevant they are here)
