Combat Arts



First debuting in Echoes, Combat Arts are special attacks that units can use during their own phase. They may increase the unit’s combat stats and have various effects. They cannot trigger follow-up attacks however.

Unlike Echoes, they aren’t tied to specific weapons. Instead, characters may learn Combat Arts when they increase their weapon skill levels. Once a Combat Art has been learned, it must be equipped (there’s space for three). Then it can be used when the corresponding weapon type is available.

Additionally, Combat Arts no longer cost HP and now cost additional weapon durability. Players must decide if they want to conserve their weapons or quickly burn their weapons. Weapons that reach 0 durability will enter a weakened broken state (with reduced Might, Hit and increased Weight).
