Combination

From Elwiki

Every character in Elsword has their own unique features that set them apart from other characters.

Combination

Being a duo character with a tag-team playstyle, Lu and Ciel do not share mana and also have a special system known as Combination.

  • When either Lu or Ciel is tagged out, the inactive character will rapidly recover 6 MP per second (1 MP in PvP). The amount of mana the other character has can be seen in the third blue gauge in the UI.

  • To compensate for this, Lu and Ciel's skills are low in damage. This is to encourage players to keep switching between the two in order to maximize damage.

Combination Gauge

Lu and Ciel have a fourth resource known as the Combination Gauge. This resource is typically only used for specific Combination Skills such as Soul Infest. Combination Skills cost no mana, but can only be used when the Combination Gauge is ready.

The Combination Gauge is divided into 10 segments, and gauge is gained every time the player switches characters through a command attack or skill and successfully lands a hit with the attack.

Tips and Details

  • Although Switching is a Special Move, it is still counted as a skill that cannot be used during some disabling debuffs like Silence.


Trivia

  • The term "Combination Points", often written as CP for short by players, is only used in the NA server's text for Switching Skills. On other servers, as well as other tooltips on the NA, it is typically referred to as just "Combination Gauge".
