Yeah, but I mess it up usually. I need to downgrade my weapons or something so I can practice it.

Do sequential Blade combos

Top right tells you what to do next

Maxes out at 4, and the final element in the chain throws out an orb of that element

Practice on lower level unique mobs since they have more HP.

Yeah, I can get the orbs on there, but then I fuck it up. I'll try to find some mobs to practice on. Any location recommendations? I'm halfway through chapter 4.

Here are my rare blades:
Agate
Roc
Perun
Gorg

Ursula
Dagas

Haven't resonated with Vess or Wulfric yet, but I have them both.

Best to practice with blades who have lower cooldowns on their skills.  Guys like Wulfric and some others need like 10-14 auto attacks to recharge their skills, making it difficult to do the combos before the meters wear down.

Consider that as well for other members of your party.

Though I keep coming across an issue.  Not sure if its a glitch in the game or what, but sometimes in battles, I can't get my main character's special meter to charge past level 1.  It just stays there stagnant.

Are you cancelling correctly with the blue circle and all that?

Also, I beat the shit out of Jugger this morning. I forgot I swapped out the break move on Nia. Then Rex handles Topple, Launch and Smash with Mythra, Agate and Roc, respectively.


Stupidly obvious reason why I kept getting wrecked.

Yea but sometimes it simply won't charge.  It will go to level one, and stay there forever.

I can use the level one, charge it back to level 1 like normal, then it won't budge again.  Really fucked up a lot of big fights for me.

No, but a patch is coming in two days.  So we will see if that is fixed.


Also there's a Nopon Mural questline that is bugged under certain circumstances.   I won't go into details since I'm on chapter 9.  A lot of people are pissed about it.
