Switch between characters during combat to use the full range of abilities at the disposal of your party. In later battles you'll need to swap party members regularly to find enemy weaknesses to smash your foes and achieve victory. Using elemental weaknesses, such as casting water spells on enemies made of fire, is a great way to gain the upper hand early on.
Strengthening your characters is achieved through battling monsters to gain experience. As well as learning new abilities and increasing your defence, attack and magic by gaining levels, hidden gems - called Oculi - can be found throughout Lemuria and as a reward for beating certain enemies.
Equip these Oculi to power up your shields, boost your attack and grant other bonuses to your characters during combat. You can also combine Oculi to create more powerful gems and even brand new ones.
