The BUTTONS C(Circle), S(Square), T(Triangle), X(X) commands the four character that you have chosen to play with. pressing 4 buttons will make them use basic attack. The buttons are aligned so that it matches the position of characters on screen(right hand side). After all your character have attacked or (moved) the game turns to computer and let them move. So basically this is a TURN based game. In the middle of fights you will notice that there are bars on the bottom. When you are not attacking it displays your character information. When you are attacking it displays the TARGETs HIT POINT. To the left of the HIT POINT bar there is a HIT measure. It measures how many hit you did and gives it a percentage of 1~100. Some thing good will happen when the circular measure goes up to 100...read on. or jump to OUGI!. After the turn based explanation there is something else called CT, Charge Time. This is used when MAGE cast spell, or you perform big moves. When the CT bar is empty you are ready to cast another spell. Some spell will knock you out for 5~9 turns. Each turn you will recover one CT, sometimes hitting on TARGETS they give you a red crystal ball. 1 RED CRYSTAL = 1 CT It gets automatically absorved by the person who needs it. You do not control who gets the RED CRYSTAL. x - x - x - x - x - x - [SECTION BREAK] - x - x - x - x - x - x 1.3 Lets have more Combos! Well now that you have learned the basic lets move on to combo. This is where you coordinate your attacks. Note that after you press the command button some times it takes a few second for them to actually hit the TARGET. Most of times your TARGET will GUARD. so you will need to trick them them. By pressing more than button at once your character attacks at the same time. If you press all 4 buttons at ones then all for goes. But each character have a different hit time. Some are faster some are slower. (Mages usually are the slowest). To do a combo, plan who is going to go first. Arrange them in order of speed and attack position. Use Lower attack to fake a Head Slash such stuff like that will have a higher hit chance rate than going 1 by 1. x - x - x - x - x - x - [SECTION BREAK] - x - x - x - x - x - x 1.4 Combo guard?? MY combos CRUSHED!!! What?!@?@?#?$%$%^ Now that you tried combo you still get your Combos CRUSH sometimes? Not to worry this happens quite often. To Crush a Combo Guard is easy. Make sure you know how EACH of your character attack, position, speed, number of hits, and degree. Now knowing them you can start to plan. Take your time FIGHT SCENEs are not time based. To Successfuly hit your TARGET you will need to fake a move. Hitting your Target All at once is not the best way. Usually The first Chara to hit is the faker. The following Charas are the Guard Crush people. Make the TARGET THINK you going to hit lower area but then the first chara to arrive is a head slash or back slash. Get it yet? Here is a few examples. The first button you pressed commands a Head Slash(high range attack) Second person you pressed(faster than first one) is a lower range hitter. Now Since second is faster he will get there first and attack first! Enemy will block first move NOT second. So covering his head leavs his lower area clear. The combo is success and Guard is crushed. Usually after a GUARD CRUSH the TARGET will FAINT for 2 turns. Use the turns well. x - x - x - x - x - x - [SECTION BREAK] - x - x - x - x - x - x 1.5 OUGI! Special High Damaged moves now When you attack your enemy when the circular Bar reaches 100, a screen will come out before your screens goes back to normal. Its a dark screen with your 4 buttons on it. The Character that has the CT bar empty will be able to Perform OUGI or Special move. Usually this move are killer moves but not everytime is successful. NOTE! this moves adds ALOT of CT! Think before you act! CT clear when you go into battle view next time! If you don't want to do OUGI then just wait or press your DIRECTION keys. How to do multiple OUGI? By hitting another 100 in the previous OUGI you can do another OUGI with another character! YES! It is posible to do at least 3 OUGI in 1 attack scene(i haven't encountered 4)!!. *BEWARNED WHEN YOU ARE FIGHTING STRONG BOSS 3 OUGI MIGHT NOT* *KILL HIM! YOU WILL HAVE TOO MUCH CT TO MOVE!!! WATCH OUT!!!* *USE IT ONLY WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WILL KILL HIM FOR SURE!!!!!!!* x - x - x - x - x - x - [SECTION BREAK] - x - x - x - x - x - x 1.6 Special Abilitys In the main menu before battles under the skill area if you noticed After playing and reading for a while you can do Special Skills such as CHARGE, TRICK etc etc. This is good when you want your enemy to get killed faster. Here is a list of what they are and how to use them. Remenber to Set all of this under SKILLS in chara manament menus. YOU CANNOT SET THIS IN BATTLE SCENES!! [CURRENTLY THIS HAS BEEN DEVELOPPED] NAME? WHAT? USAGE? >> Support or Special Skills << CHARGE! Charge HIT POWER! Press and hold the Chara's BUTTON Trick Faking a BACK move Press the chara button then hold BACK Support Supports combo Automatic >> Counter or Random Reactions << HEAL Heals other Chara Automatically randomly selected. CONDITION Heals Condition Automatically randomly selected. (PRESS T to check LVL status) x - x - x - x - x - x - [CHAPTER BREAK] - x - x - x - x - x - x 2.0 Wana be non barbarian? Try mages and stuff :) its neat~ Mages are really powerful in this game. Use it well! Read on. x - x - x - x - x - x - [SECTION BREAK] - x - x - x - x - x - x 2.1 Mages and Spells ALAS! You are here! This is the most important Tactic in the game. The KEY is to have STRONG mages. Basic attack can only hit 1 TARGET at a time. Mages can hit ALL TARGET in 1 time...WOW! ain't that neat or what! Why spend time to kill your TARGET one by one when you can kill them in 1 turn? Always Train GOOD mages to KILL thoes NASTY TARGETS in ONE turn instead of going round and round. Watch out! After your mage cast a spell it usually takes him 3~5 Turns to recover his CT! So make sure your attack is fast and blazingly harsh! This way enemy will not have a chance to attack. x - x - x - x - x - x - [SECTION BREAK] - x - x - x - x - x - x 2.2 Spell list _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ | [SPELL NAME] [TYPE] [SPELL NAME] [TYPE] | | >> TO ENEMY << | >> TO SELF << | | Fire Burn F,A | Cure Plums +30%HP SH,A | | Fire Lance 2H,F,S | Ordinary Shape CH,S | | Thunder Bolt P,S | Revive +30%HP SH,CH,S| | Dark Savior 3H,D,S | Reflect SC,S | | Reduce Power ??? | | | Icy Edge 2H,I,A | | | Lightning Bolt 2H,P,A | | | Wait Reaction SC,A | | | Dark Servant 2H,D,A | | | Cool Dazzel 3H,P,S | | | Meteor Shower 2H,P,A | | | Poison Blow ??? | | - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - F = Fire Type, P = Physical(no class), I = Ice Type, A = All Person, S = Single Person, D = Dark Type, W = Light Type, #H = # of hits, CH = Condition Heal, SH = Status Heal, SC = Status Change, CC = Condition Change, %HP = Hit Point, ? = ? x - x - x - x - x - x - [SECTION BREAK] - x - x - x - x - x - x 2.3 Items and Such Sometimes using items is a MUST. When you are out of CT on your mages, and your other Charas are not healing you? Well use an Elixar or 2. It heals 50% of ur total hit point! Some times you can also use speical Attack Items too. And also potions to revive your teammate. You can not THROW WEAPONS! x - x - x - x - x - x - [SECTION BREAK] - x - x - x - x - x - x >> EMAIL ME YOUR COMMENTS and SPELL/SKILL INFO!
