Unleash Your Arts

Special abilities, known as Arts, can make all the difference in battle. Since their power can differ depending on your character's position on the battlefield, you'll need to time your moves perfectly.

Connect a Chain Attack

One of your secret weapons against big enemies is the Chain Attack. Once your Party Gauge fills up, each party member can use an Art in a massive combo.

Upgrade Weapons & Armor

New armor isn't just about good looks (though it does look cool). Each piece of equipment has an impact on a character's stats, so choose wisely. You can shop for equipment, but you can also get it by collecting items as you travel, trading with townsfolk, or winning battles.
And, you can customize items even further with special gems, which you can craft yourself.
