For those who haven't noticed it yet — if you get a "common" Blade to fill its affinity chart, you'll get a "key" (or more, I've had up to 3, depending on the Blade in question) that'll let you assign 1000 WP to one character's arts

@Pahvi I've seen the notifications pop up, but I never understood they actually meant something substantial. Thank you for the information.

For those curious about the special blade Affinity tree I posted earlier, it unlocks during the during.

Just started Chapter 5 Oh boy, there certainly were a lot of bosses at the end of Chapter 4! and already 40 hours in. So, how many Chapters are there anyway? 10? 12?

This game is so fracking epic!!! It made me smile, almost cried, giving me goosebumps... in short - roller coaster of emotions. Some cutscenes and boss fights are so epic I can’t find words to describe it. I already played too many games in my life but this one touches where very few did.
I just finished chapter 3 and made some pretty crazy combos and damage... And must say it’s so damn satisfying!
I’m in love. 😍

@JaxonH I think you might consider leveling up at inn for last fight in chapter 3..
greatness awaits..

I don’t know why I’m so emotional playing this game. Is it because music, visuals, voice acting (playing with Japanese voices), story or is it all together just clicked with me in some wierd way

@CroRock

Xenoblade will do that to ya. I think it's just the combination of all the above. It gets you really invested in the story and characters... The music definitely helps, and having competent voice acting this time adds an additional layer of attachment for me that isn't usually present.

@GoldenGamer88 I think it's 10? Maybe? Also in chapter 5 tho, party's lvl 43-49 me thinks and I thought I was overleveled going into a new area because everything was around lvl 35...then the next boss happened lol

Think I realized what went wrong tho. Maybe. Gotta look at those damage numbers on my next attempt but I think a certain aggravating mechanic is back.

Who thought spike damage would be a good idea anyway?

What a beautiful signature.

@Inertiacreep If I remember correctly, it would automatically inflict damage on party members within a certain range of the enemy every few seconds. I'm pretty sure you could dispel it with one of the Monado's abilities. If spike damage is in this game, hopefully there's a way to counter it.

@Tsurii Looks like I‘m off to training then. I think my team‘s at around Level 39. Charged through that area in front of the factory because whatever enemy I tried to fight, that stupid bird thing at level 80-something would always come down and kick my bottom.

I saw aux cores and accessories (or maybe it was in PoppySwap) that reduced spike damage by 80%. I have no idea what spike damage is though.

Spike damage is basically reflect damage. Hit the enemy and it does damage back to you. In XC1, there's also Spike effects that caused stuff like Topple/Daze if you attacked the enemy while that was Toppled/Dazed, or even instant death. XCX mostly got rid of Spike, only reserving it for like 5 postgame bosses, and there's only one Spike effect from one boss from what I remember.

Just picked the special edition up today! For anyone that's heard both, is the Japanese audio recommended for dub?

@Operative2-0 the English voice acting is rather good. All the people online throwing a fit about it before the game came out are stupid.. you'll miss out on a lot of lines if you play with Japanese... also Asurdas Japanese voice is really bad.

@Operative2-0
Honest truth, I think the English dub is incredible. With the exception of some of the common blades which are absolutely horrid. But generally speaking the voice work is extremely well done.

@Inertiacreep To be fair, I don't think the trailers gave a good first impressions. Like, it feels like the trailers picked the absolute worst lines to include while the English VA is actually incredibly solid for the most part. I really wish they didn't include the Japanese VA dlc because I feel so many people will miss out on the great performances. It's way better then the voices in the first game, that's for sure.

Anyway, thoughts so far, it's pretty good. Definitely more enjoyable then the first game but the way it handles affinity charts is terrible and some parts feel like they weren't play-tested properly. I also feel the game REALLY didn't need to be this long. The combat doesn't become really enjoyable until almost 30 hours in. That said, I definitely like the story and characters more then Xeno 1's forgettable cast and story by a long shot. Although some of the more "anime" moments like Rex's revival that happens in the beginning makes me roll my eyes. I'll give this game credit, I'm on chapter 6, 55 hours in, and I'm still compelled enough to keep going, which is a lot more then I can say for Skyrim. Granted, that's also true for the previous games, but I feel Xeno 1 would have been a different story if home console JRPGS weren't so thoroughly mediocre back then.

For what it's worth, I feel it deserves the 83-85 Metacritic average. (I'd personally rat Xenoblade 1 a 70/100 at very most and X a 90/100 to a 85/100)

Guys, can someone tell the difference between Normal Blades and Rare Blades ?
During gameplay, are Blades required to continue the Story progress ?

Btw, Rex was literally "Died" after being stabbed from behind, right ??

My Top 5 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (10 / 10)
2. The Sims series (9 / 10)
3. Portal Knights Switch (9 / 10)
4. Animal Crossing New Leaf 3DS (9 / 10)
5. ARMS (8 / 10)

@Operative2-0 The english voice acting is pretty decent. Rex's battle cries are pretty comical, but otherwise I'm enjoying the dub.

@Anti-Matter
The difference is just how good they are. The rare blades are very unique and awesome while the common blades are just normal dime a dozen Blades.

And yes.
