3. Shift-Break to Instantly Warp and Close in

• By long-pressing on the enemy, you can instantly warp close to your foe and deal a deadly blow. That warp maneuver is also great for getting a good look at your current surroundings and incoming foes since it can transport you to a high vantage point. While you’re hanging up there, plot out where you should go next and how you should approach an upcoming battle encounter. By the way, you can also use Shift-Break to carry out a pre-emptive strike or help out your buddies.


4. Weaken Your Foe and Increase Your Damage Output

• You can weaken your enemies by anticipating their moves and launching certain attacks. For example, by applying a Shift-Break in unison with a MaGitek soldier’s axe attack, you can render him into a weak state. Damages dealt to foes in a weak state increase by 1.5-times.


5. Parry to Your Heart’s Content

• A “parry” icon is sometimes displayed when an enemy makes a strike. If you tap the icon fast enough, you can launch a counter-offensive to heavily damage your enemy. Sometimes you can even put your foe into a weak state.


6. Learn Your Abilities and Boost Your Strength

• You can earn ability points (AP) by leveling up and clearing quests. By unlocking abilities using AP from Ability Call inside the Main Menu, you can make Noctis and his buddies stronger and also learn new moves. Only focus on obtaining abilities that fit into your overall style of play. There’s no need to invest in skills that you’ll probably never utilize.


7. Sell Items and Purchase Weapons

• You’ll find many items and potions lying about the adventure field. Sell those items and purchase as many weapons and accessories as you can during your adventures. At first, the only weapon you’ll have in your inventory is a sword. But you’ll pick up more powerful and larger weaponry over time. It’s easy to swap between your equipped weapon types during battle, so play around with each one to see which is best for a particular situation. Always keep in mind that larger weapons (like the Great Sword) can wipe out multiple enemies. It may take longer to swing that Great Sword, but the big damage it dishes out is a nice tradeoff in that aspect.


8. Break Open the Wooden Boxes and Get the Hidden Item

• Apart from items found on the adventure field, you can also acquire items by breaking open wooden boxes. There are many hidden items that aren’t found in the boxes too, so try and find as many as you can.


9. Pick up Food Ingredients and Cook Recipes

10. Have Fun Playing the Chapter Again
