The switching blades affinity chart task for Pyra is really annoying, I only started switching blades in battle quite late into the main story (I only really starting using it when I understood the orb system) so by the time I had completed the main story I was only at around 2000/4000 as a result of my other party members being the main source of switching. Pretty sure she would be at S+ by now if not for that preventing S rank.

@Tsurii Ehh, a couple levels. But most named enemies are. The update said it made the quest completable regardless of story progress. But the enemy would not spawn until after I progressed the story.

So I just did Electra's heart to heart and something went very wrong with Pyra's model. Really not sure how else to describe it: it broke and then d out hard core. Shaking like crazy from the waist up. In 212 hours of gameplay this is the only time I have seen such a glitch. It was honestly pretty funny, but I hope it doesn't pop up again. Has anyone else seen anything like this?

@Heavyarms55 I've had one crash before and that was after the credits which made me think a system like Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time was implemented where you have to close the game after completion to go back into the game.

This game has a nasty habit of introducing party wiping attacks midboss battle.

What do I do about the Power Cables in Chapter 5? I can get its health down to 1/4 but then it does an attack that just wipes out every party member. Attacking the Core Robot does nothing.

I hear the gimmick of this battle is to build up your party gauge so you can do a chain attack and kill it in one strike but I fail to see how that's possible when the game literally won't let me build it up. I got a Chain attack off ONCE and it wasn't enough. I've been at this for an hour.

@AlternateButtons Keep an eye out for those attacks and evade/block them with an appropriate Art. For example, Rex has Roc with Wild Scythes and Morag has Brighid with Azure II: Judgement that grants them complete evasion during their Art. Tora also has Rigid Shield that increases his block chance.

This section is a bit useless in hindsight since you're apparently getting one-shot, but you can also elect to play more defensively and attach a healer/tank Blade to Rex. Or play some Tiger Tiger to make Poppi better to create some Mods that would really help. For example, Teamheal RAM that heals your party for x% of damage on your Special Art is really good (depending on the rank), or Flank Force RAM that can do 100%-150% extra damage per Special Art if you attack from the side, or flat out extra damage with max Affinity as a passive skill (when you have a gold connection between your Blade and Driver, also allows you to build up to level 4 Special Arts).

Chain Attacks can only one-shot bosses if you burst enough orbs. For that boss, I recommend getting two orbs on, then Chain Attack to burst at maybe 33%-50% health.

Alternatively, if you're not above using exploits, finishing a Blade Combo or using a level 4 Special Art or Chain Attack gives you invincibility frames that lets your entire party survive/block hits during the animation.

@Grumblevolcano Well I haven't finished the main story yet, so I haven't seen the credits. If it happens to me I will let you know.

Anyone else having an issue with Gorg's quest where it says you don't have space for rewards? They are key items, it's not like you can get rid of key items!

Borealis was the blade I was thinking about when looking at the sihouette, and while he isn't actually a nopon, he does have the nopon skill which allowed me to open a few of those locks in Argentum. I got him via a legendary core crystal

@Heavyarms55 I just walked out of Torigoth. That's it. I wasn't in a battle or anything. Just exiting the city and it just crashed. lost 3 hours of work. Had to put it down for a bit after that. Playing stardew and fire emblem warriors right now for a little while.

Went ahead and bought this game today, went against myself not to buy anything until MH World but the struggle was too much.

Any tips for a newcomer to the series? I’ve just got onto chapter two (crash landed on the Titan) enjoying what I’ve seen so far, a lot more than I’m enjoying Breath of the Wild.

@Imerzion As fellow newcomer to the series, I would say that keep in the skills with extra stuff in them, like knockback, launch, break, topple are good. Even if they do nothing else, those are really, really useful.

Then I guess just screenshot and pay attention to tutorial, and you can also throw questions here if you have some!
