In this page, I'll introduce the basic battle commands and system.Bind バインド
If you are stuck to a monster, a battle begins. In Homeland it is called Bind バインド. When you Bind a monster, the battle commands Attack こうげき, Run にげる, Guard ぼうぎょ appear. You can use also Skill わざ and Item もちもの commands in battles. Battles proceed in turns. When you do one action, then the enemy does one. Attack こうげき
Choose one monster to Attack with a red arrow, then you Attack. You need to Equip そうび a weapon to Attack with it. Basically, Attack command doesn't cost power points (pow). Skill わざ
You can also use Skill わざ to attack enemies or heal your life points. Some skills and spells are effective on Binding enemies only (Binding-only Skills), and others are effective from distance (Distance skills). For example, the spells of Ho ホ and I イ are Binding-only Spells, on the other hand, the spells of Hodon ホドン and Izu イズ are Distance Spells. To distinguish spells (skills) of Binding-only or Distance, look at the circle which appears after you choose spells.
In Distance Skills, when a target is in the circle, a red arrow appears. Then you can choose which target you use the skill on. If a target goes outside of the circle, you can't use that skill.
When you attack from a distance (in non-Binding situation), your action is not counted in turn so you will not be attacked by enemies. However, some monsters have Distance Skills as well, and such monsters attack you from distance.Guard ぼうぎょ
The command Guard can reduce physical damage. However it is counted as one action, so enemies attack in their turn. You can't Guard while you are Join Hands with your companions.
Especially online, when your level is low, I don't recommend to Guard. If there are some higher level questers around you, I recommend to wait until they help you. If you don't act, then enemies don't attack you.Join Hands てつなぎ
You can Attack harder with using pow while you are Joining Hands with your companions. The pow cost changes according to your level. You can release hands during battles, but you can't Join Hands during battles.
You can use skills of other mascots through Join Hands (ex. Pinoc's Healing かいふく, Kirara's Reflection Barriers はんしゃバリア, and so on).Run にげる
When you Run from battles, you can choose which way to Run. Even if you failed in one direction, sometimes it succeeds in another direction.
Run command is also counted as one action, so if you failed, the enemy attacks you in their turn.
When the status of Speed すばやさ is high, Run command tends to succeed. However it tends to fail when your level is low compared to the enemy level.
You can't Run while you are Joining Hands with your companions.Unconscious きぜつ and Retry やりなおす
When your life points become 0, you will be Unconscious きぜつ. Select Retry やりなおす and then select Yes はい to return to the town last visited. When you Retry you lose half of your money and 5% of your Clear Points will be deducted (げんてん) at the end of the game. However, you will not lose more than 50% of your Clear Points in total if you have to Retry many times.
With the command Status つよさ, you can check the total deduction you have now.
When you press the Start button and the L button at the same time, the command Break ちゅうだん changes into Retry やりなおす. Deduction also is added when you choose this.Abnormal status

Notes; RP = Rurero ルレロ & Purify じょうか.
The spell of Rurero ルレロ and the skill of Purify じょうか, and the item Cure-all ばんのうやく can cure all abnormal status except Unconscious.
Notes; Skills and spells
Both skills and spells are in the command Skill わざ, but these two are different.
It is necessary to Say spells to use them, and spells are always with this spell mark below. (ex. Puyu プユ, Izu イズ, Hono ホノ)
When you become Silenced くちどめ, you can't use any spells because you can't Say. On the other hand, you can use skills while you are Silenced, because skills do not require Say. (ex. Healing かいふく, Reflection Barriers はんしゃバリア, Meditation めいそう) However when you become Rooted かなしばり, you can't use any skills because you can't move. However you can use spells as long as you can Say.
*When you become both Silenced and Rooted at the same time, you can't use either spells and skills.
Some equipments can save a few cost pow of spells, but they can't save the pow cost of skills.← Back to Basic Guides Map
