■ Difference Between Sword Art Online and Accel World Characters
Quickly approach the enemy! Accel World characters, who fight on the ground, can accelerate to approach the enemy in a moment’s notice. From this quick approach, they can unleash close-range attacks to take the enemy by surprise, as well as strike and again create distance.
Accel World characters excel at linear movement on the ground due to their acceleration, but by using a “High Jump,” they can jump high altitudes in a straight line from the ground. This allows them to close in on flying monsters and fairies.
Burst Linkers each have a Duel Avatar that fight with Enhanced Armaments and special abilities. It is important to master each character’s special ability, such as riding a vehicle or unleashing a special attack.
Sword Art Online
“Flight” is a special characteristic of ALfheim Online. Wings spring up from the back of the body and catch the wind, allowing you to freely fly about vast fields. Escape to the sky in order to get yourself organized, and unleash a unilateral attack from the sky.
Upon logging into ALfheim Online, the Sword Art Online characters that become fairies are able to use magic. These, of course, include long-range attacks, and magic grows as you continue to use it. Combine magic with flight to control the distance of the enemy.
ALfheim Online avatars can change their weapons. For example, if you’re using Kirito, you can switch from a one-handed sword to dual swords, etc. Compared to Accel WorldSword Art Online characters don’t have a strong special trait, but are versatile types that can fight according to the situation.
