Tower of Fantasy reveals to us today the contours of its particular combat system. Often presented as a serious competitor to Genshin Impact, it nevertheless stands out from the latter with a rather particular weapon system.

Level Infinite and Hotta Studios give us a good overview of the fights of Tower of Fantasy thanks to this new trailer which reveals some demonstrations of force. You should know that in this Action-RPG, weapons have a central role in the gameplay. It exists twelve types of weapons for the moment knowing that it is possible to equip three at a time.

We learn that each weapon has four types of skills: general attack, dodge, specific skill and combination. General attack skills are further divided into level special attacks and static attacks.

Each of the weapons has different effects in combat:

  • Combined attack: When the target of an attack is fully charged, switching weapons can trigger a combo attack.
  • Timeout : Dodge the blow before the monster hits you to activate timeout and increase your weapon power. Switching weapons triggers a combo attack.
  • Elemental Resistance: Monsters have unique weak points. Trigger the right elemental attack to deal more damage to them.
  • Shield without attribute: This shield does not resist the elements and has no elemental damage reduction effect. Recommended for use with weapons targeting monster weak points.
  • Physical shield: Cyan physical shield is significantly less likely to be broken by physical weapons when taking a shield break. Elemental weapons can exploit their weak points.

Knowing that the title promises fairly tough battles in PVE and PVP, we can therefore expect a certain depth in the game mechanics. Optimization enthusiasts will no doubt have a field day.
