How to Play Subjugations

Subjugation Battles

Subjugations is a quest type in which you build up damage and earn high scores against mega bosses.

You can fight against bosses of the five different affinities (fire, water, wind, light, and dark) separately.
Try to adapt your decks for each affinity.

Starting these quests will not consume stamina.
Note: This quest will be unlocked upon completing Main Quest Ch. 8.

The quests consist of three waves, and for each wave, you can load out separate decks for a total of up to nine characters.

Note: Characters, weapons, memories, and companions of the same name cannot be used in the same deck or in more than one wave.
Note: Characters of the same name but with different costumes cannot be used in the same deck or in more than one wave.

A feature called Knockdown will appear in battle.
Damage the boss with your skills and build up the Knockdown Gauge to knock down the boss.
When a boss is knocked down, you will receive a larger damage multiplier bonus than normal, separate from your skill combo.
Note: While the boss is knocked down, your skill combo will be treated as 0 and will not yield a damage multiplier bonus.

Your score will be determined by the total damage you inflict on the boss and the following three bonuses.


About Subjugations Score Bonuses

Your score will be determined by the total damage you inflict on the boss and the following three bonuses.


Score Bonuses Details
Difficulty Bonus A bonus based on the quest's difficulty. The more difficult the quest, the higher the bonus.
Survival Bonus A bonus based on how many characters are alive at the end of each wave. The more characters left alive, the higher the bonus.
Max Combo Bonus A bonus based on your highest combo in battle. The higher the combo, the higher the bonus.

Note: Knockdown can only occur once per wave.
Note: If you proceed to the next wave without triggering a knockdown, the Knockdown Gauge will be carried over.
