Battling Cards and Elements
Posted on March 01, 2012 by Nulgath
You got to know when to hold them, know when to CRUSH them, know when to walk away, know when to run! This week we talk battle strategies. Oversoul will be a very tactically heavy game mixed with a sprinkle of chance and opportunity. Oversoul's battle system will be base on battle cards. You are dealt your cards and must decide to how to play them to best defeat your enemies.
- Power Cost: Each turn you must decide to power up, draw a new card or attack. Or do one if each if you're able.
- Element: This is the element you must power up in order to use this card. In the case above, Neutral.
- Card Type Icon: This icon will determine what type of card you are you using. This is an attack card indicated by the crossed swords
- Damage or Defense Points: This number displays the amount of damage or defending you will do.
You'll basically have 4 types of cards mixed in your deck. Attacks, defends, unblockables and the all important special cards which will modify all your abilities in different ways. Below are just a sample of what some special cards can do:
This brings us to Elements. As of now there are 9: Neutral, Fire, Ice, Earth, Water, Lightning, Light, Shadow and lastly, Chaos.
As you can see in the chart above, certain Elements will have a significant advantage over another. (This chart may be subject to change once battle tests are done.) Some of this will also be offset with special cards and relics.
Some characters may have the ability to possess multiple elements like say a Master Wizard. This may be an advantage but it's also a risk as each element must be powered up separately. So if you are powering up fire to attack an ice beast but you keep drawing an earth or water card, you maybe in trouble. On the other hand, you can counter multiple types of enemies.
This is the type of game I want to play and I look forward to crushing you all in battle! You can be sure I will be playing an undercover character as well as myself!
Stay tuned next week for more updates on Oversoul!
