Learning Compound Techniques

To learn a Compound Technique, you must acquire the Disc. Discs may be acquired in two ways.

  • When playing in EP1~3 Mode, Claris Claes will distribute the following Client Orders if you have a Force or Techer whose Level is at least 70 and any EPISODE 3 Matter Board is set as active.
    • Creating a New Technique I: Awards the Zandion Disc.
    • Creating a New Technique II: Unlocked by clearing "Creating a New Technique I". Awards the Fomelgion Disc.
    • Creating a New Technique III: Unlocked by clearing "Creating a New Technique II". Awards the Baranstion Disc.
  • When playing in EP4~5 Mode, they can be purchased from the Photon Exchange Shop for 50 Photon Spheres.

Mechanics

  • To enable use of a Compound Technique, your Main Class must be Force or Techer. You must be armed with a Rod, Talis, or Wand.
  • Compound Techniques are set to your Subpalette and are activated from it.
  • Compounds may be used once their Gauge is charged. Inflicting damage to enemies with Techniques will fill the Gauge. Using a Compound Technique will empty the Gauge. This Gauge is shared among all three Compounds.
  • Compound Techniques cost 0 PP to cast.
  • A Compound Technique must be charged. If the charge is interrupted by taking knockback or dodging, the cast will not be wasted.
  • As of the EPISODE 5 update, all Compound Techniques are set to a 120s global cooldown timer after use. This means that no Compounds can be used after using any Compound, regardless of which Compound was cast.

Compound Technique Gauge

  • The maximum rate the combo tech gauge can be filled is 4%** per hit. The amount that is filled is directly related to the damage you do with techniques. The damage required for max fill rate corresponds to the level of the enemy. On level 80 targets, it requires roughly 726k total damage to fill the gauge, with maximum fill rate being at 726k/25, or approximately 29040 damage per hit. On level 75 targets, it requires roughly 506k(?) HP of damage to fill the gauge, or approximately 25 hits of 20240 damage or more.
    • With the wand Magical Piece's potential, Potential.png 心輝一意の調, it allows you to fill up to 1.7 times the amount per hit. This allows you to fill up to 6.8% per hit. So if you do one hit of 200k damage (say from ilbarta) on a level 80 enemy, you are still limited to filling the gauge by 29000, but that is multiplied by 1.7, which effectively gives you about 49300 damage toward your needed 726k. Doing 10k damage (say from ragrants) on a level 80 enemy fills the gauge by effectively 17k points each hit.
  • Damage dealt by Zanverse does not contribute to the Gauge.
  • Passive objects that are able to take damage, such as Darker Walls, count as enemies for the purposes of filling the Compound Technique Gauge and will fill the gauge when struck by a Technique.

Properties That Affect Compound Techniques

  • T-ATK
  • Elemental Weakness

Photon Shop (Photon Spheres x50)

A compound wind and thunder attribute technique. While wearing wings of wind and lightning, lightning strikes will follow in your wake as you charge towards your enemy.
  • 7 hits of wind element, 8 hits of lightning element.
    • Despite this, both relevant element masteries from the force and techer trees contribute to the damage of all hits. As you get 1.44x damage from one element mastery, you get 1.44 * 1.44 = 2.07x damage on compound tech usage if both masteries are maxed. The elements themselves are only there for the purposes of counting element weakness.
  • Each hit is actually 990% power, or 33% of the listed power.
  • 15 hits x 990% = 14850% total power
  • You are invulnerable for most of the duration. However, you can be knocked out of the cast if you are struck during the brief period between releasing the charge and Zandion's movement, which will waste the cast.
  • Moves constantly and will circle targets if the target can be passed through. Can reliably target a single enemy due to its sharp turning speed and radius.
  • In a straight line, you move forward about 63-64M. This is approximately the distance of 3 charged ilzondes and 1 uncharged ilzonde.
  • While the damage isn't much, having Ramegid type 0 active before you use this might be helpful. If you aren't moving very far, zanverse can help as well.
  • This will leave enemies with the shock status effect if they can be afflicted with it.

Photon Shop (Photon Sphere x50)

A compound fire and dark attribute technique. Concentrate fire and darkness into a flame that envelops your target and consumes them.
  • 5 hits of fire, 5 hits of dark by default.
    • Despite this, both relevant element masteries from the force and techer trees contribute to the damage of all hits. As you get 1.44x damage from one element mastery, you get 1.44 * 1.44 = 2.07x damage on compound tech usage if both masteries are maxed. The elements themselves are only there for the purposes of counting element weakness.
  • Each hit is actually 1056% power, or 33% of the listed power.
  • Up to 8 additional hits of dark explosions are given along the length of the beam at random.
  • 10~18 hits * 1056% = 10560%~19008% total power
  • You cannot be knocked back for the duration of Fomelgion. You also cannot dodge. You can be stunned by things like Hagito in Yamato EQ, which will interrupt this before it can finish.
  • The length of the beam animation is about 42M long. For quick reference, Foie's max range is about 50M by default.
  • Use a charged zanverse before casting this for more damage. Use megiverse to stay healthy.
  • Enemies are afflicted with the burn status effect when hit by this, again if they can be afflicted with it.

Photon Shop (Photon Sphere x50)

A compound ice and light attribute technique. Execute an onslaught of attacks using blades made of ice and light. Your brilliant display of sword mastery will be the last thing they see.
  • 5 hits of ice, 6 hits of light.
    • Despite this, both relevant element masteries from the force and techer trees contribute to the damage of all hits. As you get 1.44x damage from one element mastery, you get 1.44 * 1.44 = 2.07x damage on compound tech usage if both masteries are maxed. The elements themselves are only there for the purposes of counting element weakness.
  • Each hit is actually 1188% power, or 33% of the listed power.
  • 11 hits x 1188% = 13068% total power.
  • Grants a super armor effect during the attack. However, you can be struck out of it if you are attacked between releasing the charge and making contact with the target, which will waste the cast. It is possible to evade during the movement step to avoid damage, but this will waste the cast as well.
  • If in close proximity to the target prior to casting, Zanverse can be thrown to increase damage, or Megiverse to give sustain.
  • The movement step of this Compound travels about 17.75m (the distance of a charged Ilzonde), give or take, toward your target. Anything farther away will cause the Compound to whiff.
  • Inflicts Freeze if possible. However, this attack's strength and behavior usually either breaks the Freeze status or kills the target outright.
