How To Upgrade/Enhance Abilities For Limit Breaks

Use While 100% Staggered To Do Heavy Damage With Aim

Attack speed is increased, magic is increased to 2 shots, and damage is increased. Especially during 100% Staggered, the damage will increase up to 1.5 times if you keep attacking, so you can aim for big damage by combining Limit Break.

Means Of Recovery When Potion Runs Out

During Limit Break, the player does not become stunned in battle and has automatic HP recovery, so it is easy to recover from a poor situation. It is also useful to use Limit Break as a means of recovery when your Potion is about to run out.
