Adventure EpisodesAs you explore, you'll experience mini events that grant experience points, depending on the choices you make. Each Adventure Episode has a title and summary to further enhance immersion in the story.
Friends in High Places
During your adventure, you will meet two experienced explorers called Lili the Necromancer and Solor the Harbinger. They'll help your guild from time to time, but they seem to have their own reasons for challenging the labyrinth...
Monsters and FOEs
MonstersThe Yggdrasil Labyrinth is home to monsters of all shapes and sizes, lurking around every corner to attack unsuspecting adventurers. Shin Nagasawa, a veteran designer in the Etrian Odyssey series, oversaw the creation of an entire bestiary full of deadly creatures, both great and small.
FOE: Formido Oppugnatura ExsequensFOEs are especially dangerous monsters that make life difficult for countless adventurers in the labyrinth. Because they are visible out of combat, rookie explorers can track their movements on the field to avoid a losing battle. Of course, those who are brave and strong enough to face an FOE are guaranteed a suitably epic reward.
Combat is arranged in two rows on both sides. Combatants who attack from the front row to the back row, or vice versa, deal less damage. Your back row and the enemy's back row are too far apart from each other for melee attacks (summoned allies, such as hounds or hawks, are treated as frontline fighters). Ranged weapons and magic spells, however, bypass these restrictions altogether.
Battles are won by issuing commands during the game's turn-based combat. There are seven basic commands: Attack, Skills, Defend, Items, Move, Union, and Escape. The orders you give to your guild members on their turns will ultimately spell the difference between life and death.
