Combat Panel

Command Zone

Sdorica's combat panel (referred in-game as command zone) consists of a 7 x 2 board with colored orbs, with which players can interact with to form different orb combos and cast skills, and two slots for advisor skills.


On top of skills, players are given access to two advisors in most battles. One advisor comes from the player's roster and the other from their guild. Characters are selected from within the roster as advisors to assist in combat through various means. There are two types of advisors: active and passive.

Active Angelia Advisor
Advisor: Angelia
Grant front row ally (Attack power Icon x 0.6) Armor. [CD: 1]

  • Active advisors have to be activated in order to be used in combat. They do not consume a turn, but have a cooldown after usage.

Passive Dagger Advisor
Advisor: Dagger
Increase black character's skill ratio by 30%.

  • Passive advisors do not have to be activated. Instead their advisor skill is present throughout the entire battle.

Resurrection Orbs

Black Resurrection Orb

Resurrection orbs refer to orbs used to revive fallen allies. They're distinguished from normal orbs by their red tint. It should be noted that resurrection orbs, like normal orbs, can only be connected in the three combo patterns detailed below.
Each character type requires a different number of orbs to be cleared for their revival.


Combat Guide Skill

Players can match orbs in one of three types of combos to perform a character skill. Every character has 5 skills: 1-orb skill, 2-orb skill, 4-orb skill, Passive Skill and Advisor Skill (mentioned above).

Orb Combo

The 3 types of orb combinations: 1-orb, 2-orb and 4-orb can be seen below.
