Square Enix has released new information and screenshots for Brave standard II introduce the country Holograd and its characters, four additional jobs, Counters and Jammers, and subsequent battles.
Get the details below.
■ Holograd, The Militant Nation
300 years ago, a whole lot of clans lived in barren wastelands. This is how Holograd began. Since then, it has annexed neighboring countries, and now other countries are strengthening their guard.
Adamas Holograd (pronounced by Rikiya Koyama)
Hellblade Asterisk Holder.
A descendant of the hero who brought Holograd together. He is a champion of military art, and believes that the world will achieve peace under the strength of the strong. He is the “militant king”, that is what the ruler is called in Holograd.
Maddock Lonsdale (pronounced by Shigeru Ushiyama)
Bastion Asterisk Holder.
Shogun from Holograd. As Sloan’s former mercenary comrade, his skills in military art compare favorably. He is a just military man who is both self-sacrificing and loyal to the supremacy that Adamas defends.
Mora (pronounced by Ruriko Aoki)
Phantom Asterisk Holder.
One of Adamas’ subordinates. A woman who has mastered the art of shaping displacement to hide gender and age. She loves Adamas and is prepared to throw everything to serve him.
Vishnu Isaac (pronounced by Taisuke Nishimura)
Arcanist Azeri Holder.
One of Adamas’ subordinates. A stomach that claims to have mastered the art of killing magic. He once lost a match against Elvis’ teacher Emma and has had a grudge ever since.
A tank job balanced in offense and defense. They can generate a barrier for all party members and remove damage only once.
A job that specializes in quick attacks with a short sword. With their high evasion rate and overwhelming number of hits, they can use their two blades to defeat the opponent without giving them time to attack.
A job that specializes in powerful magic that hits all enemies. This includes super powerful magic that can even involve party members.
A job that uses a damn magazine that risks killing them. Attributes can be freely assigned to the blade to slaughter each enemy.
In battle it is necessary to watch out for the “Counters” and “Jammers” that many strong enemies possess. And if you feel you are not strong enough, you can level your jobs through “subsequent battles.”
Counters and Jammers
Certain monsters and many strong enemies can have a skill to counteract your actions. These are “Counters”, which oppose attacks and “Jammers”, which counteract actions other than attacks, such as a counter to the use of an object. In battles against strong enemies, plan your strategy to avoid serious counter-attacks from these skills.
—Counters and Jammers have a fixed chance of being triggered by your actions.
The hunters’ support ability, “Retaliation Evasion,” can avoid physical attack encounters and wailing.
When you touch a monster on the field and break out in battle, any nearby monsters will be drawn in, triggering “subsequent blows.” Although there is risk involved, since you have to fight as many monsters as you pull in, you can earn a significant payout of Job Points depending on the number of consecutive battles. If you want to earn job points, you can round out enemies and aim for a bonus in a row.
—Using items, you can trigger consecutive battles against monsters from a particular race.
—Your BP will be the same from the first match to the second. Consider stepping on yourself so you do not run out of breath in the first match.
