Phantom Pheatures

Phantom Marker

Each attack against an enemy will accumulate Phantom Marker onto them. The Marker will visually disappear if an enemy is not attacked for awhile, but fear not as the Marker’s accumulated rate will still be the same. Each attack seems to have a set accumulation value, and damage dealt does not affect this.

Once the Phantom Marker appears as Blue or Purple, it’s ready to be detonated

 

Phantom Mark Detonation

Detonation can be done by holding down the Weapon Action until a blue aura appears on your charge as seen in the image above. Detonation of Phantom Mark will deal damage and recover PP for the Player.

  • Stage 1 (Blue Mark) Detonation: Deals moderate damage and recovers 30 PP
  • Stage 2 (Purple Mark) Detonation: Deals immense damage and recovers 50 PP

 

Shift Photon Arts

By tapping Shift you’ll create a white ring on your Character, by using a PA during this ring you’ll perform the Shift Version of that Photon Art.

 

Katana – Quick Cut

After using an attack with Katana, you’re able to perform an attack by using the Weapon Action once the blue line appears as seen above. Slice your way instantly to your target with Quick Cut.

You must learn the Skill [Quick Cut] to use this.

 

Stealth Tech Charge

While charging Techniques with Phantom, you’ll become a a ghostly ball. You’ll be invulnerable for a second during the Charge.
