After previously introduced some characters, an update for The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel finally issued. Nihon Falcom as its publisher issues the Break and Heighetened battle features. In addition, they also announces Kiseki Box limited edition for the game. Curious? Well let us explore the battle features first.
During in-game fighting, some enemies have Break Gauge alongside with HP Meter. If you want to know, it is the blue bar directly below the HP. As you hit the enemy when its HP reaches 0, it will result in Break State. And, this is the opportunity for you to strike your enemy with several advantages.
Below are the advantages during breaking an enemy:
- Additional Damage
- More Items are dropped during Break State
- Dispels the enemy’s buff
- 100% stagger rate
The first picture shows normal battle while the second picture shows the enemy’s break state. Take note that you may want to strike the broken enemies with all your might in accordance to the advantages mentioned above.
However, some enemies have special ability called Heightened State. In this situation, all of their attacks become critical, take less damage, ability to access S-Breaks which ignores turn order. While in this state, you have to carefully plan your battle action to avoid and survive their might.
The first picture shows the enemy’s Heightened State, as noted by the glow in its body. After that, they may release special attack called S-Breaks, ignoring turn order and powerful enough to crush one of your characters, or the entire party (depends on the skill, though). Do your best to plan things through, mateys!
