Combat Tips and Tactics

Rose is one of the most powerful melee characters in the game, and can match Sorey in-terms of damage output and effectiveness.

Unlike Sorey though, Rose is best when going into an already initiated battle, and maximizing damage by unleashing powerful combos.

Rose’s best use is launching enemies into the air and setting up traps. She’s an expert in aerial combat and launching enemies off the ground.

Once she’s done that, hang back and set up traps like Sleeping Dragon and Burrowing Dragon, and try to lure enemies.

Rose plays a lot like most ‘Rogue’ classes in western RPG games, and is best used as an opportunistic character instead of one who will charge into battle (you have Sorey for that).

She is best when she is constantly moving in and out of battle, setting traps, then releasing devastating combos on slightly weakened foes.

Of course, with her aerial prowess, you’ll be able to greatly stagger specific foes, giving you a huge advantage in battles as you nullify the most threatening enemies.

Keep in mind that Rose is a close-combat expert, so even when you move out of battle to recuperate, make sure you can still easily get back into action quickly.
