Weapon Tempering systemEdit
Similar to the Warriors Orochi series. Players can use this system to now alter 40 different weapon elements. (see table below)
There are two main forms of tempering:
Strengthening (which fuses two weapons of the same type together) and
Trading (exchanges three weapons and materials to create two stronger weapons).
天 (Heaven), 地 (Earth), and 人 (People). They have a triangular relationship for their affinity with one another and are randomly assigned to weapons. Using a disadvantageous weapon against an opponent will cause them to receive less damage and not be flinched from attacks.
Heaven trumps People.
People is superior to Earth.
Earth has an advantage over Heaven.
You will notice during battle a weapon symbol appears next to the enemies life guage in the top left corner of the screen. the colour of the weapon denotes that targets affnity.
If your Affinity is superior to your enemies, the Spirit Gauge appears over the targets head. The Gauge will be gradually emptied by your attacks. If you continue to attack after the gauge is empty you will invoke Storm Rush.
During Storm Rush you can do Combos by repeatedly pressing Normal or Charge Attack.
If your Affinity is inferior to your enemies, you can use Variable Counter by pressing the Switch Weapons button (must be done when enemy is using a charge attack) you will have to watch for the blue glow indicating they will use a charge attack..
