Armaments

How do you acquire them?

In order to fight enemies in Tower of Fantasy, one needs armaments, which are obtained by completing missions and purchasing gacha pulls. More information can be found on a separate page: Special Orders – pulling for characters and armaments.

Types of Armaments

In Tower of Fantasy, one can wield multiple types of armaments at once and switch between them during combat. This is encouraged by the energy bursts one can generate by switching armaments. There are several types of armaments available, including swords, spears, and ranged weaponry. Each armament is also equipped with a specific element.

It is advisable to always have multiple armaments equipped in order to be prepared for any situation.

Rarity

Each armament has a certain rarity assigned (R, SR, or SSR). One can recognize it by its color, and the rarity is also marked on the armament\’s card. Common armaments are usually quite weak, but they can still be enhanced. The process is described in more detail on the Enhancing Armaments page.

Armament Traits and Resonance

Aside from their damage potential, armaments have two additional traits. These can be found under their CS (more info on the CS – what is it? page). The first icon indicates the armament\’s type (offensive, defensive, or supportive). The second icon indicates the armament\’s element.

Equipping certain types of armaments at the same time can result in them synergizing and granting different bonuses. This is known as the Resonance effect. For example, equipping two offensive armaments at once will further increase one\’s attack power. Available powers can be checked in the center of the screen, under the amount of gold one possesses. Only one can be used at a time.

Armament Abilities/Stats

It is also important to pay attention to an armament\’s stats themselves. These can be found in the Abilities section on the armament card.

The first two listed stats are Shatter (how good the armament is at breaking shields) and Charge (how quickly it charges). These only matter when using the armament.

The remaining three stats are passive bonuses granted by the armament even if it is not being used at the time (although it still needs to be equipped).

Special Abilities

During battle, one\’s armament charges, and when it is fully charged, one can use its accumulated energy for devastating special attacks. Each type of armament comes with its own unique abilities.

In ToF, you can unleash a powerful attack using your currently equipped weapon, which will recharge after each use. Additionally, your other weapons will also charge during combat, allowing you to switch to them and execute a different special move once they are fully charged. You can keep track of the weapon charge level at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Resistances

Some enemies are vulnerable to specific elements, which you can identify by the icons under their health bars. It\’s recommended to have weapons with different elements at your disposal. Stronger enemies can generate shields that reduce the damage they take and protect against certain elements. If you attack with an ineffective weapon, the game will display a \”Resistance\” message. The most powerful enemies have extra armor that you must deplete before you can damage them.

Dodging

ToF has a cooldown for dodging, but it has a perfect dodging mechanic. If you dodge right before an enemy hits you, a purple bubble will appear around you, freezing time for all enemies inside. This gives you a few seconds to attack them without risk.

Healing

You can restore your health in two ways: your health will regenerate on its own after combat if your Satiety is high enough, and you can heal during combat by consuming meals. For more information on acquiring meals, check out the Cooking page.

Normal attacks

There are different types of normal attacks in ToF. The easiest one is a quick hit using the left mouse button or B button on the gamepad. Holding down the button will charge the attack for some weapons. Stronger versions of attacks are possible by attacking enemies in the air or right after dodging.

Statuses

You can acquire various statuses during and outside of combat that can have positive or negative effects on your character. Most of them are inflicted by opponents and last only for a short time, but some can last longer, such as the Resonance effect you choose. You can check your character\’s current statuses above their health bar at the bottom of the screen.
