Kingdoms of Amalur Moves and Abilities Guide – How To Create Combos

By   /   4 years ago


Moves in Kingdoms of Amalur are special abilities you unlock while leveling up your character. These moves can be chained into combos to fight difficult enemies as they increase your chance of survival when executed perfectly.

You can cancel any combo or move by double tapping a button, if things don’t go as you expected because a failed move or combo can leave you vulnerable to your enemies in Reckoning.

These moves are associated with your weapon of choice, and as you level up your character, you will unlock more powerful moves. You will be unlocking them simultaneously for different weapons based on your Character Build.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Moves

Following are the moves you can unlock for different weapons in Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning:
