I keep doing it by accident because I'm wanting to "run" faster than what rex runs as and reset the minimap. It's pretty frustrating.

I'm going to tell you something once, better pay attention! No I wont clarify anything for you

I have two rare blades and I've started chapter 3

I find it really hard to get level 3 specials out before the timer runs out. I can get level 2 specials out....most of the time...

Toppling them extends the duration. Rex's Anchor Shot turns into a Topple-inflicting Art during Chapter 3, and most other party members have a Break move.

Also Cancelling into your Drive Arts builds the Special Meter much faster. Wait until the third hit in your auto-attack combo to use an Art.

I try to cancel almost every time, maybe 90% of the time, but I find it's pretty difficult to cast it on the third auto attack (because the interface is already so hectic I usually just listen for the audio (which is semi-difficult with everyone yelling stupid poo poo) cue that says your attack hit, or watch the screen shake (also semi-difficult because again, so much poo poo going on at once) that usually I end up casting it on the first auto attack because there's a noticable animation change between first and third.

I tried directly controlling Tora but he's so bouncy it's hard to keep track, and Rex I can never remember whether downward sword slash is his first attack or if side slash is the last.

I just started Chapter 3, more or less, and I have the bird tank on rex (along with some other various common blades) and Nia has the titty rabbit, idk their names. I've been hesitant about popping more cores until I get more party members.

Or make Legendary cores guarantee a rare blade and once you have all the rare blades they only give 4* commons (which can be crazy powerful if you're lucky).


I said it previously as a semi-joke, but I honestly wouldn't be surprised if XCX ends up being revealed as a prequel to XC1 and XC2. The reason for things like Nopons in XC1? Because they existed on Mira. Same with the Telethia and other similarities.

Yes it's insane, but it's also not as insane as other Xeno games so that makes it plausible.

Bets on XCX is actually Xenoblade Chronicles Ten. Also it's more likely that XC1 world and XCX are linked and not XC2 and XCX based on the numerous references to XC1 and zero references to XCX in XC2.

am I doing something wrong? I've spent an hour long resting trying to get platinum cylinders from either mor ardain, or gormott and nothing is spawning.

Are people full of poo poo? I'm mostly done chapter 6 and I have the best rank salvaging...I can easily buy gold cylinders but I want platinum ones so I don't have to grind so much

Premium cylinders randomly show up as far as I can tell. They're not worth it. Gold cylinders are better. What are you trying to do? Build town rankings?

it's easier to make gold and other things because they have a higher chance of spawning rare chests.

This is like with level 12 salvaging mastery, too

There's a hard cap of something around 200 (256?) accessories so when you end up with 30 Break Stones in a few minutes from smashing every 15 seconds any future accessories are vaporized when you touch them. Not sure why it doesn't use x/99 like everything else. So now you actually have to go sell frequently and consult a spreadsheet to know which items supersede what since there is no category sorting.

But you can get 999 of each accessory.... I don't understand

So, apparently there are 7 pouch expansions, not 6. I went to that zone in Chapter 7 and picked up one I couldn't use, because I already got 5 expansions for everyone. I don't remember what the last location was I got the pouch expansion from, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't on the list.

You get 2 from the story, and it says on guides all around you get 4 more from random zones...However:

Each person has 1 pouch on them to start. They can use 2 pouches. That means you only need 5 pouch expansions, right?

What's the 6th one for? Vandham? Well he missed out on that one.

I don't get chapter 7:

how people thought Nia was friendzoned. There was lead-up for Nia being a Flesh Eater throughout up until now, but there was no leadup for Nia coming out and saying she LOVES Rex. It sounded more to me like "I love you Rex! (for helping me Come Out)" and Rex was like "Yeah! You're welcome!"

It was Nia that initially took it to be the romantic love instead of platonic love, that's why she was surprised when he said he loved her back.

Do you think it was an actual admission of love and Rex friendzoned her? I interpreted it as her meaning platonic love, like Rex more explicitly says.

That's how I interpreted it too.

When I think of someone good at interpreting relationships I think GreenBuckanneer

I....I am quite surprised and slightly annoyed you remember that ASOIAF reference.

Still, I didn't notice anything that would have meant "oh man I am afraid of telling him I love him." It was a "oh man I'm afraid what they'll think when they find out I'm a flesh eater"

The latter was telegraphed well, the former was not.

U-DO Burger posted:

Oh god I was just thinking of that whole saga when you got joint custody of E/N, what the hell happened with ASOIAF?

I can see interpreting Nia's confession as platonic if it was never brought up again after that scene but the game explicitly says later that it was romantic love so idk why this is being debated at all

Where was it stated that? I've been meandering in chapter 7. I do remember a post battle conversation line where nia goes "I'll tell you about it later " but that struck me as weird as well given where I am.

Also I don't remember what you're talking about for E/N

As for the ASOIAF, I didn't realize the Renly/Loras connection from reading the books because I was kind of skimming through it and read part of the audiobook, and you lose a lot of detail that way.

Amppelix posted:

Boosters, regardless of their usefulness, are a great way to encourage not hoarding your cores in the early game, i think. You can only hold 5, and if you do even a bit of salvaging you'll ram up against that cap, which is then easily solved by awakening some blades with them. That's what I did for like 30 hours of game, and it gives a nice natural pace to your blade accumulation.

Even at 25 being held you still ram into that cap easily. It's a frustrating system.
