Combat is the set of actions two units perform when one of them initiates an attack on the other. It is distinctly different from support, where one unit heals another or uses an "exclusive skill" such as Icon Skill Assist.png Dance.

Combat is carried out in a set of rounds, while certain skills may change the flow of battle, the default order of actions is:

  1. Attacker performs an attack
  2. Defender performs a counterattack, if able
  3. Attacker performs a follow-up attack, if able
  4. Defender performs a counter follow-up attack, if able

The default criteria for performing a counterattack is having an equipped weapon of the appropriate range, but counterattacks can be prevented or guaranteed by skill effects.

The default criteria for performing a follow-up attack is having a speed (Spd) stat at least 5 points higher than the enemy, but follow-up attacks can be prevented or guaranteed by skill effects.
