◆ New Action System
Active Skills: Freely Unleash Various Skills
“Active Skill” is a new action that lets you use powerful attacks and ability strengthening. Set Active Skills in the skill slots ahead of time to trigger them at any time during battle. However, once an Active Skill has been activated, it will take some time to activat it again. Active Skills are acquired as Servants level up.
A maximum of four Active Skills can be set. In addition to various effects such as attacking and recovery, there are also class specializations. For example, Sabers specialize in close-range attack skills.
Class specializations include:
- Saber: Strengthens “Close-Range Attack Skills”
- Lancer: Strengthens “Rush Attack Skills”
- Rider: Strengthens “Rush Attack Skills”
- Berserker: Strengthens “Vicinity Attack Skills”
- Archer: Strengthens “Long-Range Attack Skills”
- Caster: Strengthens “Firing Attack Skills”
- Assassin: Strengthens “Close-Range Attack Skills”
- Ruler: Strengthens “Vicinity Attack Skills”
Here are some of the skills that Servants can use:
—Strengthen Skill: “Pseudo Hero Sycophancy” – Summons the “Radiant Swords,” incarnations of the Twelve Paladins, to the back for a fixed period of time. The Radiant Swords will automatically attack in combination with standard attacks.
—Close-Range Attack Skill: “Lumiere Du Soleil” – Collects and condenses the power of the five major elements to “Joyeuse” and unleashes a full-power mow-down attack.
—Crowd Control Skill: “Trap of Argalia” – Mows down enemies with a “Golden Lance.” It turns the legs of the enemies it hits incorporeal and stuns them.
—Counter Skill: “Luna Break Manual” – An attack that wraps pieces of the “Luna Break Manual” around the user for a fixed period of time. While it is active, it negates incoming attacks while unleashing powerful counter attacks.
—Vicinity Attack Skill: “Golden Anchor” – Summons three anchors from the sky that drop down on enemies.
—Close-Range Attack Skill: “Dance Macabre” – A wild dance attack that slashes enemies with a Cutlass while moving forward.
—Crowd Control Skill: “Sewing Thorns of Divine Death” – Throws the user’s spear forward, which splits and extends. It sews the enemies it hits to space and stuns them.
—Vicinity Attack Skill: “Ultimate Rune: Fire” – Uses the Ultimate Rune to generate three pillars of fire in front of the user.
—Close-Range Attack Skill: “Fevens Ardeo” – The user leaps from the spot where it is activated and strikes the ground with a sword to cause an explosion.
—Recovery Skill: “Sunshower” – Generates a recovery field with the user at the center. The HP of allies in the field will gradually recover.
—Close-Range Attack Skill: “Extra Link” – A powerful, three-strike attack that projects and switches between the three swords “Durandal,” “Joyeuse,” and “Ultimate Flame” one after the other.
Rush: Hit the Enemy with a Final Blow
You can weaken enemy Servants by hitting them with consecutive attacks and Active Skills. When they are in that state, use the Active Skills that the class of the player-controlled character specializes in on the opponent to activate a “Rush”!
Not only can you hit the enemy with major damage through consecutive attacks, either one of the two power-up items “Attack Power-Up Item” or “Attack Speed-Up Item” will definitely drop, allowing you to continue the battle with an advantage.
Fate/Extella Link is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan on June 7.
