The best talents for standard enemies and boss fights

From: Scarface

Defeating enemies will give you so-called Memory Shards . If you carry a certain number of them with you, you can use them with a soul throne to improve your attributes (strength, vitality, disease), which is equivalent to a level up. With each level up, the number of memory fragments required for a further level up increases.

If you have increased an attribute, you automatically unlock a talent point up to a maximum of 24 talents . Talents can give you both passive and active advantages in combat - although some of them are more useful than others depending on the situation. For example, certain talents are worthwhile in boss fights that you can otherwise do without - and vice versa. Luckily, you can always reset talents in the Throne of Souls at no cost and activate other talents instead.
The best talents for (almost) every situation.

Aside from boss fights, you can rely on other talents.

Of course, when choosing talents, it is not only a matter of your personal taste, but above all of your preferred fighting style. For example, if you are good at dodging, but often fail when using parries, you will not know what to do with the following talents in the 'Parades' category.

In the following table we have summarized the most useful talents for you, which pay off especially in the fight against standard opponents:

Dodge and Slash Lv.2
category: saber
Required Talents: Lvl.1 saber attacks
Required Talents: Lvl.2 saber attacks
Required Talents: Lvl.1 dodging and slashing
Increases saber and slash attack damage.

Salvational Execution Lv.2
category: saber
Required Talents: Execution
Required Talents: Wholesome Execution Lv.1
Increases the amount of energy regenerated after a successful execution.

Sharpen weapons Lv.2
category: saber
Required Talents: Sharpen weapons Lv.1
Further increases damage dealt by saber attacks.

Daring Parade Lv. 2
category: parry
Required Talents: Parry Lv.1
Required Talents: Parry Lv.2
Required Talents: Daring Parry Lv.1
Parry duration is further increased, but parry damage is reduced.

Rapid regeneration Lv.1
category: Evade
Required Talents: No
Get back on your feet quickly.

Short claw Lv.1
category: claw
Required Talents: Lane Claw St.1
Performs a series of claw attacks of up to 3 slashes.

Energized Claws Lv.2
category: claw
Required Talents: Energized Claws Lv.1
Claw attacks that deal damage regenerate a larger amount of energy.

Luck St.3
category: strategies
Required Talents: Luck Lv.1
Required Talents: Luck Lv.2
The drop rate of items is significantly increased.

Here's why these talents are so useful:

  • Dodge and Slash Lv.2 significantly increases your melee damage and expands your attack chain to a 5-hit combo.
  • With Wholesome Execution Lv.2 you regenerate health and energy after each execution. Since each opponent can only be eliminated via an execution, you will regenerate some life every time and have to resort to your potions less often.
  • Sharpen Weapons Lv.2 increases your melee damage even further, allowing enemies to be eliminated even faster.
  • Reckless Parry Lv.2 increases the parry window and is therefore of great use to all those who rarely or only rarely succeed in parrying in their standard form.
  • Rapid Recovery Lv.1: Heavy attacks stagger Corvus, making him vulnerable in this state. Rapid regeneration allows you to quickly dodge follow-up attacks.
  • Short claw level 1: The alternative long claw requires a lot of time for its use, which you often lack in combat. With the short claw you can land three quick hits and are not at the mercy of attacks for so long.
  • Energized Claws Lv.2 provide the necessary energy regeneration so that you can use plague weapons more frequently. Since you have to use claw attacks in every fight to bring down the opponent, they increase your energy along the way. Alternatively, the "Energized Weapon Level 2" talent can also be recommended.
  • Gluck Lv.3: If you want to increase your chances of getting new plague weapons and ingredients, you shouldn't ignore this talent.

The best talents for boss fights
Many bosses try to hit you with critical attacks.

When dealing with a boss in Thymesia, you can keep many standard enemy talents while replacing others with more appropriate ones due to their useless perks.

For example, you no longer need Healing Execution Lv.2 for boss fights because you only execute the boss at the end of the fight (the exception is two fight phases), which means that there is no health or energy regeneration anyway. Lvl3 Luck is another example . The talent only pays off when you defeat many opponents in quick succession. Save the three talent points for the following more appropriate talents:

Step jump St.1
category: Evade
Required Talents: No
Step jump to interrupt critical attacks.

Sliding claw St.3
category: claw
Required Talents: Sliding jaw St.1
Required Talents: Sliding claw St.2
When hit, gain a stack of Offense and Defense buffs.

Lv.1 interceptor wing
category: Feather
Required Talents: Feather arrow St.1
Required Talents: Feather arrow St.2
Instead of throwing feathers, you perform a melee attack that can interrupt critical hits.

Here's why these talents are so useful:

  • Step Leap Lv.1 not only grants you the ability to use the dodge button to interrupt critical hits, but also to initiate a counterstrike. Since critical attacks cannot be blocked and some of them are almost impossible to avoid by dodging, this talent is extremely important in boss fights.
  • The gliding claw level 3 gives you the possibility to inflict big wounds guaranteed with the step jump. The subsequent "Offensive" and "Defensive" buff can't hurt either.
  • Lvl.1 Intercept Wing serves as an alternative to the Step Jump and Glide Claw . The attack is performed less complicated, but also does no damage.
