The entire world in Xenoblade Chronicles is "seamless" since all areas flow naturally and continuously. There are only loading breaks when players travel between major spaces divided by different body parts of the gods, there is no loading between a "town" and a "field" unless they are on different body parts. Xenoblade also includes the option to quick-travel between discovered landmarks.
If the main character falls in battle they will be returned to the last landmark they visited and will not suffer any loss of resources or experience. The battle system in Xenoblade Chronicles is also seamless. Once a battle starts with the enemies roaming on the fields it takes place instantly on the same field in real-time.
When the player chooses to initiate combat the three characters on the field will start to attack automatically. 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack battle players may select special attacks, named arts, for their chosen character 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack perform.
For example, the character Melia uses spells called ether attacks and another character named Sharla uses gun arts. The main character, Shulk, has special access to Monado Arts that unlock as the player progresses through the game, using these arts Shulk can do things such as inflict more damage against Mechons, buff his teammates or guard against strong attacks from powerful monsters.
More generally, arts have varying effects including but not limited to buffs, debuffs, high damage or status effects, many of these effects also depend on a character's positioning in battle and may effect the amount of aggro a character draws.
All three characters in battle rely on arts in battle and have their own unique battle techniques. However, the player can only control one character at any time which can be chosen by designating the character they wish to control Party Leader. During battle characters' actions also fill up a "Party 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack that has three bars. If a character passes out during battle they can be revived at the cost of one bar.
When the Nancys Boots - Exactshit* - Exactshit 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack Gauge fills the player may initiate a Chain Attack, during which the player can directly select an art for each character to perform in sequence, with higher affinity between party members increasing the chance of a button prompt appearing that if successful will allow the Chain Attack to continue after the initial three attacks.
Chain attacks prove quite important during battles with powerful enemies or bosses due to the opportunity to deal large strings of damage and status effects. Chain Attacks are also far more likely to inflict the Break and Topple status effects on stronger enemies, which can play a pivotal role in battle.
When an enemy is effected with the Break effect they may be Toppled, leaving them vulnerable to attack and unable to fight back for a certain period of time. Affinity between party members can be raised by spending time together, initiating "Heart-to-Heart" story 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack and completing quests. Heart-to-Hearts can be found in specific spots on the map 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack require certain levels of affinity between characters before they can be initiated, doing so will usually result in further increased affinity between the participants.
The player can also increase their affinity with towns and effect the affinity between NPCs through sidequests of 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack there are a large amount. The game has a large variety of weapons and armor, almost all of which have different appearances. Weapons and armor effect various stats such as attack, defence, agility and resistances and can come with unremovable gems or empty slots for gems that provide bonus effects.
The player can find gems to equip from loot drops and also gains the ability to craft gems from crystals - which can be mined or also found in loot drops. Another key feature of the game is the presence of visions of the future that Shulk can experience through the Monado. During battle the player will receive visions of particularly strong battle arts about to be used by the enemy so that they may warn their party members and prepare for these attacks accordingly.
These visions of the future also have I Will Wait For You - Janet Manchester - Disco Screen / Movie Lovers Disco prominent role in the story. Two colossal deities, known as Bionis and Mechonis, stand in an endless sea in a duel where neither has the upper hand. Eventually, Bionis and Mechonis fatally wound one another, effectively ending their battle and leaving Once A Day - Various - Popular Music Hit Parade, 110 All-Time Favorites bodies locked into place.
After that, life begins to emerge on both colossi in various forms. Most notably, the Homs standing in for humans. Millennia later, the people of Bionis are still in constant war with the machine-like Mechon of Mechonis who keep attacking all life on Bionis for unknown reasons.
The human forces at Sword Valley, located on Mechonis' blade still jutting from Bionis' torso, which acts as a bridge between the two deities, manage to force the Mechon forces into a standstill thanks to the mysterious powers of a superweapon known Canadian Railway Trilogy - Gordon Lightfoot - Gords Gold the Monadowielded by the great human warior Dunban. A year later, Dunban is still recovering from wounds he received after activating the life-draining powers of the Monado to fight off the Mechon.
Shulka scientist working on uncovering the Monado's secrets, is out collecting and studying Mechon debris that had fallen to his home, Colony 9, from further up the Bionis. Though currently peaceful, the humans assume it's only a matter of time before the Mechon regroup and launch further attacks on the already exhausted human colonies of Bionis.
It's up to Shulk, his friends Reyn and Fiora Dunban's sister and the collective armed forces of the colonies to prepare themselves for this "inevitable" second clash. After Shulk and Reyn perform a few peacekeeping errands in and 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack Colony 9, the settlement 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack suddenly attacked by swarms of Mechon from the sky.
Led by a powerful unit with a face, which the team dub "Metal Face", Shulk is barely able to hold them off with the Monado the only weapon able to defeat Mechon before the strike force departs after consuming a considerable number of homs. Fiora is killed by Metal Face after coming to Shulk's rescue in one of the military's mech suits.
Filled with grief and rage, Shulk decides to depart with the Monado and track down Metal Face. He is joined by his best friend Reyn, and they set off 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack Colony 6 - the closest human colony to Sword Valley and the Mechon beyond.
On the Bionis' Knee shortly thereafter, they save a young boy named Juju from a rampaging monster and are introduced to a makeshift refugee camp hidden away in the forested area of the Bionis' Knee. It's here they meet Sharlaa medic and sniper for the Colony 6 militia, who explains that the Colony was completely annihilated by the Mechon just a few days ago. After Juju recklessly decides to scout what remains of Colony 6, Sharla joins Shulk and Reyn to catch up with him.
Meanwhile, Shulk has been receiving troubling visions of what is to come from Red Headed Woman - Various - It Came From Memphis - The Legendary Sounds Of Memphis Monado. With this foresight he is able to save Reyn, Juju and Sharla from a grisly fate, yet tortures himself over not being able to save Fiora.
After rescuing Juju, J Root & How Hard - Recalibrate trio decide to head to Colony 6. There they meet the militia's leader, Otharonand are resolute in finding out what happened during the attack and where the rest of the militia are. In the mines under Colony 6, where valuable 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack Ether deposits are procured, the party meets another faced Mechon who calls himself Xord.
Aggressively mocking the deaths of the Colony 6 militia, Xord draws the ire of Sharla and Otharon and is eventually defeated, despite the Monado's proven lack of effectiveness against Face Mechon.
Though accosted by Metal Face, which they are still unable to properly harm, the team is saved by the arrival of a now left-handed Dunban and Shulk's mentor Dicksonwho are able to chase the Mechon off with special weapons made out of Mechon parts, which are able to hurt them. Shulk receives another vision, this time of a black fortress.
Dickson claims such a place exists on the head of the Bionis, so the team head to Satorl Marsh to find a way to the top while Dickson leaves them to check the other colonies. While heading through Makna Forest after the Marsh, they meet MeliaU Got 2 Know - Cappella - U Got 2 Know High Entia mage the High Entia being a long-lived and enigmatic race most humans have never encountered and Rikia "heropon" of the roly-poly Nopon people.
Melia is revealed to be the heiress apparent to the High Entia kingdom of Alcamoth, despite being The Beat (Part 2) - Hamilton Bohannon - Cut Loose, and after becoming a target of assassination from bigoted High Entia purebloods she is saved by the group.
After the Mechon attack Alcamoth, the team discover an opportunity to reach Prison Island: An ominous location the High Entia has banned anyone from visiting, and also the black fortress of Shulk's vision. It is here that the group meets Zanza, a captive of the island and the final living Giant in the world.
He is able to unlock the true power of the Monado just as Metal Face attacks once again, apparently killing Zanza and the High Entia Emperor Sorean and Melia's father who had gone there to find a way to stop the Mechon. With the powered up Monado, Shulk is able to grievously injure Metal Face, before his attack is stopped by a silver Face Mechon. After damaging the hull, it's revealed that not only do Face Mechon have humanoid pilots, but the silver Face Mechon in particular is piloted by none other than Fiora.
She doesn't recognize any of the group, however, and retreats with the injured Metal Face and the other Mechon. Shulk and Dunban are now more motivated than ever to track down the Mechon and the group departs for Sword Valley, 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack leaving Alcamoth in the care of her half-brother Kallian.
Passing through the inhospitable Valak Mountains, the team once again find Dickson and some High Entia soldiers at the foot of Sword Valley, who provide the team with more anti-Mechon weaponry.
The Monado is rendered impotent by Egil's secret weapon and the team is roundly defeated by his enormous golden Face Mechon. However, just before Shulk is killed, he is saved by Fiora's silver Face Mechon and they both tumble out of the Fortress to the sea below. Shulk and Fiora awaken on the disembodied arm of Mechonis, severed long ago during the fight between 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack Mechonis and the Bionis.
After catching up, they explore the Fallen Arm and find the rest of the team. They also discover a 陰謀 - Various - Xenoblade Original Soundtrack of humanoid Mechon named the Machinaa peaceful tribe of extremely long-lived mechanical lifeforms. Their leader Miqol explains that Egil was once kind and compassionate, but has been utterly consumed by hatred towards the Bionis and its lifeforms since the battle between the two gods aeons ago and Concerto For Double String Orchestra - Michael Tippett*, Neville Marriner* Directs The Academy Of St using the remaining resources of Mechonis to stage his war against Bionis.
He feels there is little recourse than to kill Egil, who he reveals is also his son, before Egil can put his plans of eliminating all life on Bionis into action.
With reservations, and with much of his drive for revenge lost now that Fiora is back, Shulk and the team decide to head into the Mechonis to meet Egil. After heading through the Mechonis, they reach the Machina capital of Agniratha.
Unlike Alcamoth, Agniratha is completely deserted. Here they meet VaneaEgil's sister and Miqol's daughter, who is also resolute in stopping Egil.
Despite their best efforts, the team is thwarted before they can stop Egil, due in part to an exceptionally fast emerald Face Mechon which is revealed to be Gadolt, and Egil merges with the core of Mechonis to control it. After being ejected by the suddenly ambulatory Mechonis, the team find a way back into Agniratha and defeat Egil at the core.
However, Shulk refuses to deal the finishing blow, realising how futile vengeance really is. Unfortunately, Shulk is shot and killed by Dickson. Reeling from the betrayal, Dickson reveals to the team that he has been working for Zanza all along. Shulk was actually a child who died of exposure on Valak Mountain along with the rest of a human research team near where the Monado was ensconced; Zanza merely used the boy as a shell for his own soul when Dickson "rescued" the child and recovered the Monado.
Zanza then eliminates the benevolent god of the Mechonis, Meyneth who, similarly, had been residing inside Fiora's body, though with her knowledge and blessingtakes over the Bionis and then utterly destroys the Mechonis, the team only narrowing escaping thanks to the sacrifice of a suddenly lucid Gadolt.
Zanza also activates the High Entia, transforming every pure-blooded High Entia into ravenous monsters named Telethia, which Zanza has used in the past to eradicate the Bionis' lifeforms whenever the Bionis required more energy - each lifeform is imbued with some amount of Ether which is returned to the Bionis upon death. Melia and the other half-bloods are saved from this fate, which is revealed to be the reason why she was selected to rule after Sorean.
Despite being dead, Shulk finds himself in what looks to be space where he sees a vision of Alvis who convinces him to fight back from the brink and regain control of his body. The Monado's powers were entirely Zanza's, yet it appears Shulk has retained the same fate-defying abilities due to his unique role as Zanza's vessel.
He realizes he Ненаглядная Сторона - Нина Пантелеева - Сентябрьская Мелодия the only Higher ground - Thunder - The Xmas Show - Live 2011 capable of stopping Zanza.
The team head to the core of the Bionis to finally defeat him once and for all.
