Skills are special actions that have a wide range of uses, from damaging foes to healing your allies. Each character learns their own set of skills, and up to four skills can be assigned for use in battle. Find the right combination of skills that complements your party members for maximum battle potential.Custom Parties
Whether playing online or offline, you can build and develop a four-person party befitting of your play style. Each character has access to their own talent tree they can learn new abilities from, as well as weapons and sigils only they can equip. As the captain of the crew, you make the calls.
Enemies have stun gauges that fill up as they take hits. Once their stun gauge is full, this creates the chance for a link attack—a simultaneous, full-party attack. Performing certain actions in battle increases the party’s link level. When link level reaches 100%, executing a successful link attack triggers link time, which temporarily slows down all enemy actions while granting you beneficial status effects. Victory lies in the links made along the way.
A Skybound Art is an attack that dishes out tremendous damage on its own, but when chained with the Skybound Arts of other party members, that triggers a damaging aftershock called a chain burst. Whether concentrating firepower on a single dominant threat or blasting swarms of foes, utilizing chain bursts is vital for staying alive.
Online Cooperative Play
There are over 100 quests waiting to be tackled at a town’s quest counter. Each quest has its own objectives and side goals that reward experience and treasure upon completion. These quests can also be played online with other players. Thanks to communication tools such as stickers and emotes, it’s a great way to unite with skyfarers from around the world.
