As with every game in the series, combat lies at the heart of Xenoblade Chronicles 3. In a world at war, everyone knows how to fight and your foes will be plentiful. One of the staples to combat in this third Xenoblade is Art Combos. Art Combos will allow you to effectively chain together multiple arts to deal more damage at a faster rate. Here is how to perform Art Combos in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
What are Art Combos in Xenoblade Chronicles 3?
Art Combos in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 are when you land certain Arts on an enemy one after the other in a set order. For example, using an Art that inflicts Break can then be followed by one that inflicts Topple and then one that inflicts Daze. These Arts on their own do damage but not much else. When chained together, the Break attack will lower the enemies defenses, then the Topple attack will cause the enemy to fall over, and finally the Daze effect will lock them in place for a few seconds.
Performing these Combos is pretty simple once you get the hang of it. All you need to do is start the combo with an Art that applies a status. Then, you can chain other Arts on top of the first one and create different combos. Some combos stun lock enemies, while others throw enemies up in the air only to be slammed back down again.
These Art Combos can be carried out manually or automatically with your party. Start the Art Combo with your character, and your party will try and perform their Arts in a way to combo with yours. If you prefer a more hands on approach, start the combo with one character and switch to the next to continue the combo with the next Art.
Art Combos are at the forefront of the combat loop in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and you should always be looking to utilize them in a fight to turn the tides. Practice makes perfect, and by the end of the game Art Combos will be second nature.
