Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent is a gacha-based single-player RPG set several years before the original game’s release. Just like in Octopath Traveler, you have to gather a group of heroes of eight different classes and set off on a journey through the world of Orsterra.
Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent Game Guide for Beginners
The world of Orsterra is constantly changing with new game updates, new content, characters and story quests are constantly being added, which means you have to go through a lot of information when you first start the game. Let’s look at some tips to help you get started in Champions of the Continent.
Choose your team well
There are eight different classes in the game, each with their own weapons and unique skills. The best way to succeed in combat is to be able to exploit the enemy’s weak points, and for this it is best to have a wide selection of weapons and elements.
Therefore, for general exploration and story missions, you should aim to have one of each class in your party, which will give you access to at least all eight weapons and even several different elements. This will allow you to hit the opponent’s weak points, which will lead to more victories in battle.
Take breaks and intensify
All enemies in Champions of the Continent have a weak point. Enemies are usually weak to combinations of elements and weapon types. Hitting an enemy’s weak spot enough times will cause them to enter a broken state, where they will take more damage from all attacks.
On the other hand, the characters gain one boost point each turn. They can then spend up to three boost points at once to empower their next attack, increasing its damage and causing normal attacks to hit the opponent more times.
The destruction and empowerment system dictates the main flow of combat, in which you hit the enemy’s weak points until they are in a destroyed state, and then increase your attacks and unleash powerful skills while the enemy is vulnerable.
Wealth, power and fame are the driving forces behind the characters and story of Champions of the Continent. As you progress, you will increase your influence on Wealth, Power and Glory. Raising their level, you get small bonuses to statistics and rubies.
You can increase your Influence by channeling new characters, completing story missions, and leveling up your characters’ skills. As Influence increases, you will also be able to interact with new NPCs using Path actions. Increasing Influence over time will make you a little more powerful and reward you with precious rubies for leading new characters.
Path Action Priority
In the influence system, there are also three types of actions related to wealth, power, and fame: Acquire, Resist, and Persuade, respectively. Using these path actions, you can purchase tradable materials, exclusive equipment, and other useful items such as experience nuts.
As mentioned above, using path actions with some NPCs requires a higher Influence rank, so be sure to increase your Influence to gain access to a wider selection of NPCs. Also, when you get to a new city, try using Path actions on all NPCs in the area to get useful items.
kites every day
Kites are rare enemies that can spawn in combat, and if you can defeat them, you’ll get a lot of experience and leaves. In addition, several stationary kites can be found around the world, which can be fought once a day. While random Kaitas have a chance to escape, stationary Kaitas will not run away from you, allowing you to defeat them and receive a reward.
In addition, every day you can watch three commercials to summon Kait, whom you can fight for experience and leaves. Defeating the Caiths is one of the best ways to level up your party, so be sure to take advantage of these opportunities every day to get stronger.
When you begin your journey in Champions of the Continent, you’ll start with one of eight five-star characters. Then, shortly after completing the tutorial, you will be able to use rubies to summon new characters. While you can take the resulting character and start your adventure, you can also flip your account for a chance at a better start.
Lynette, Viola and Fiore are popular 5-star reroll targets and will give you a strong start in the early game. Rerolling can be a tedious process, so we only recommend doing this if you want to get the absolute best start and are willing to go through the game’s tutorial repeatedly for some time.
Take your time
Champions of the Continent is a single-player RPG that doesn’t feature time-limited events like other mobile games in the genre. This means that most of the content added to the game is permanent, with the exception of rare crossover events. The entire game can be played at your own pace, allowing you to complete story chapters and boss fights whenever you feel like it.
While the game has daily quests and other daily activities such as hunting and developing the Nameless City, they can be completed at your own pace and will never completely disappear from the game.
