Prologue

The Stars Were Watching

The boss battle starts at Lv. 20 and will show you the basics of gameplay. You cannot thua trận this battle. If you feel overwhelmed by the battle mechanics, you will be given much more in-depth tutorials as your progress through the game.

Chapter 1

My name is…

You have access to the system settings. You may want to lớn turn on game play Hints và take a second to lớn look at the button config settings. I changed my Camera Range to “Long Range,” it is a personal preference.

What you can initially vày will be limited, the trò chơi will open up as you progress through the game.

Taking up a Sword to Fight?

Do not worry too much about understanding everything right now. You can go through all tutorials at Save Points.

Déjà vu

Almost all save points will be registered as a fast travel point the first time you click on it. Click again to save and view tutorials. Fast travel will be unlocked as you progress through the story.

This time…

You will learn about switching characters, but you can also give them commands in battle, and enter các buổi party mode. See tutorials “Party Members” for more information. The main menu will now be available, go through each menu tab for tutorials.

You can explore some, but I recommend holding off since many of the main game’s features are not explained/unlocked.

You may want to unlock “Way of the Guardian” in the skill tree & equip it khổng lồ your combat skills in the Skills thực đơn for the next battle.

Inside “The Northern Cave,” you will see a save point you cannot activate as a fast travel point. To come back to this area, you will need to walk there from the northern Lodend Mountains.

Note: You will take fall damage, but you will not die from falling.

Boss Battle Ugachi: You cannot give Eugeo orders for the time being.

Fighting for a Wish

You will come across relic quests on your way to lớn the next objective, “Trail of the” quests require you khổng lồ hunt the requested enemies. Some relic quests give bonus skill points and are repeatable (see the mô tả tìm kiếm for ).

When you get a 3rd tiệc ngọt member, they will be limited in what you can bởi vì with them. For now, think of them as a guest.

You will soon unlock side quests called “service quests.” After accepting the quest, you can check out more information, set as the destination, or set as subquest in the Requests tab, maps menu.

Setting it as a subquest will show information on top-left under the main quest, but will not provide a waypoint unless mix as a destination.

The next battle is against a lv. 10 enemy but can be done at a lower màn chơi if you have a good grasp on the battle mechanics.

Aincrad Style

Dual-mode is something of a different beast. Bladelock is five button presses. Time the first one and then click four more times after a brief pause. Vì chưng not mash the Square/X button. I look at his sword for a visual cue; it goes by pretty quick.

Reliving the Old Days và Extracurricular Lessons

Once you unlock facilities, you can tell who sells stuff by the money bag next to their name. Some shops have multiple tabs, lượt thích Veleno, an armor shopkeep. His armor is in one tab, accessories in the other.

Party thực đơn is unlocked, party members not in your team will tự động hóa level (there are exceptions). You should have a few skill points; I recommend learning some 1-handed sword skills. You can get the passive, Pierce Weakness in two points; it is in the attacker section. Chú ý you cannot unlock the skill tree for a weapon until Kirito equips it on his own.

Placement Exam – Swordcraft

Perfect Guard: You cannot just hold the guard button down & must time it right. Right before the enemy attacks, press Circle/B to perfect guard. Pay attention khổng lồ the screen, and you will see a light blue cross over the enemy before they attack.

That’s What I lượt thích to Hear

Use the fast travel carriage lớn continue the mission.

You can now use Sacred Arts, go to Menu -Status – Sacred Arts Details for more information.

There’s a whip you can get without fighting any enemies, go khổng lồ the northwest part of the bản đồ (Cordea Plains). You can get a katana in the same manner as the whip (no enemies) from the most northeast chest. The chest right below it is a 2-handed sword. The last yellow chest is a mace; mở cửa the chest quickly because the nearby enemy will quickly aggro you.

Placement Exam – Swordcraft

Deflecting: You must hold the guard button down & move the left stick when the enemy attacks. Lượt thích Perfect Blocking, it’s all about timing. Look for the light xanh cross as an indicator. The light blue cross over an enemy helps you time perfect guard, deflect, and perfect step.

No Place in My Life

*

Find the cửa nhà in the east part of the tìm kiếm radius. Use the carriage to lớn continue the mission. Now’s a good time to kiểm tra the skill tree và equip skills for the new tiệc nhỏ member.

Placement Exam – Swordcraft

Skill Connect: When you see a light xanh cross over your weapon or yourself, use another sword skill. If you have problems with this, some passives increase input đầu vào time in the skill tree. Showing the combat log during battle is an easy way to lớn see if you are doing a Skill Connect or EX Skill Connect.

All That You Can Be

Use the carriage to lớn continue.

Thank You for Your Praise!

Use the carriage to lớn continue. You’ll get two new buổi tiệc nhỏ members, make sure lớn equip skills for them. Miss attacks are due to lớn low accuracy. See Damage Stats.

One’s Principles

Use the carriage to lớn continue. Mini spoiler- grind a little in preparation for the next section. If you want an easier time with the next mission, equip stuff to lớn your whip skill.

Show Yourselves In, Prisoners

You cannot access your thực đơn or stuff. Use the skill “catch move” to không tính phí yourself. Khổng lồ get higher use the skill again, I couldn’t aim very high and still got it standing from the doorway you came from.

Evildoers!

You have access to lớn your menu và stuff. Prepare for duals.

Don’t Stop!

More duals.

The Synthesis Ritual

Equip skills on the new buổi tiệc nhỏ member. You can farm enemies here if you’re worried about the next area. There will be several quái vật battles in a row. They always seem khổng lồ dodge my Arts Gauge – Finish Art, so I usually use the Super Art in duals.

Chapter 2

Bad Omens

The game has now opened up. You’ve unlocked Kirito’s Tent và various features, including dating & the record menu.

Now that you have more features unlocked, you may want to skim my other sections for more information.

For art codes, when you or your party member does an kích hoạt in battle, it can be “recorded” and added as an art code or segment within an art code. I recommend switching skills often & manually using the skill in battle often. See Arts Codes và Art Builds for more information. For starting team comp, I recommend Asuna, Lisbeth, và Sinon. Remember to lớn equip them with skills.

Go to lớn the carriage, Sothercrois Empire khổng lồ continue.
