The big change with Final Fantasy 15 from previous entries in the series is that the combat takes place entirely in real time, instead of being turn based. Consequentially, the combat of Final Fantasy 15 is sped up dramatically, as you’ll have to duck and weave through enemy attacks as Prince Noctis, all while using the abilities of Prompto, Gladio, and Ignis to your advantage.

While all you have to do to land continuous attacks in Final Fantasy 15 is hold down a single button, you’ll have to react quickly whenever you see the button prompt for a dodge or a block on screen. If you can press the corresponding button in time, you’ll then be prompted to press the attack button to follow up with a counterattack, while deals significantly more damage than your standard attack.

All throughout the battles of Final Fantasy 15, you’ll want to keep an eye on the abilities of your friends in the bottom right corner of the screen, which continually build up throughout fights. When available, you can press the corresponding button to activate their ability, and if you can match the ensuing button prompt after their special attack is over, you’ll team up with Prompto, Gladio, or Ignis to deal double damage to your enemy.

Don’t forget that Final Fantasy 15 is still an RPG in some traditional senses, so you can always head into the pause menu whenever you’re not in combat to change the armor and weapons of Noctis, Prompto, Gladio, and Ignis. If you want to acquire new gear for your friends, all you have to do is head to any town throughout the massive game, and seek out a gear vendor, who you can purchase new items from.

Whenever you set up camp at one of the many campsites in Final Fantasy 15, make sure to interact with the nearby elemental deposits, which Noctis can draw from. Whenever you’ve absorbed elemental energy, head into the menus and you can combine the accumulated energy to form spells, which you can then take and use in battle to devastating effect.

Out of the three elemental types in the game (fire, thunder, frost), you’ll have to decide which type of spells to use on which type of enemy. For example, thunder spells would have added damage against automaton enemies from the Empire, while fire and frost attacks would work better against animals, and frost attacks can even freeze enemies in place. It’s up to you to collect elemental energy out in the world of Final Fantasy 15, and use these attacks alongside regular weapon strikes.
