Xenoblade plays heavily on the group and its cohesion from the combat system via sociogram and gems. In addition to auto-attack, each hero has a whole range of arts (technical) that are unlocked as you go. You can give them a maximum of eight. Once used, it must wait until the technique is charging. Each attack slowly fills the combo gauge. When it is full, you can trigger a devastating combo. Plus your characters love each other and more chance you have that combo and last a long time and do more damage. Moreover, given the power to Monado prescience. In a stylish black and white slow motion, you have an overview of the fatal attack is being prepared against one of the group. You then have ten seconds to alert a character and counter the attack. It is recommended to unbalance the monster and knock him out.
Xenoblade incorporates a system for creating gems. These gems can be placed on your weapons or armor pieces and you give bonuses. Two characters are required to create. It goes without saying that its better they get along wonderfully, if you want to create powerful gem. Each crystal gem has a percentage of purity, in order to add crystals to increase the equivalent purity. When you reach 100%, a gem of an equivalent level is created, but when you reach 200%, you get a gem level. A 300%, you get two top-level gems.
Xenoblade poured into the traditional RPG while building on the MMORPG. Unleash the monsters always a plethora of items you can choose to pick or not that is reminiscent of "bashing" and "loot." Some testers believe that the inventory of the game is too small but that is wrong. As a MMORPG, think to sell the items regularly. For each piece of armor, you have five pages of inventory and each one can hold thirty objects, while for materials and other gems, its ten pages! In this school year, they let you review your multiplication tables. On our part, it only happened once the inventory is full.
As in the action-RPG, there is no separation between exploration and combat. If you see a hostile enemy it will attack you immediately. Your characters will automatically attack the enemy you have selected. Moreover, customization of your characters is quite extensive. Each change is visible piece of armor in the game and in cut scenes, which is always nice.

Prologue : An almighty crash heralded the sudden arrival of the Bionis and the Mechonis to this world, for the two titans were locked in a timeless battle. The sound of their clashing blades rang out, shaking the sea bed and sending ripples through the air. As the duel reached its climax, the titans poured their remaining strength into one last slash of their great swords. Both struck forth with immeasurable power. Once the dust had settled, only their corpses remained.
Children of Bionis : Eons passed, and signs of life finally began appearing upon the corpse of the titan Bionis. People born of the Bionis will return to the Bionis. Now, the Bionis's enormous body, covered in lush plains as far as the eye can see, is home to a developed civilization, which gives thanks to the titan for providing them with such a natural bounty.
The Mechon : Life on Bionis was not destined to flourish forever, however. One day, an enormous horde of mechanical life forms from the titan Mechonis launch a sudden and all-out attack on the inhabitants of Bionis. These overwhelmingly powerful entities, known only as the 'Mechon', overwhelm and devour the inhabitants. Before long, the entire surface of Bionis was overrun.
The Monado : The Homs' only remaining hope is a legendary sword, said to be a gift from the titan itself.
