Players will command five champions, each skilled with using one main elemental power: water, fire, metal, nature or lightning. Players will pick three champions to fight each mission, strategically choosing the powers they will bring in battle to give them the upper hand on the field. Each element is even more powerful when used against the matching weak power, and players must carefully choose which element is the most effective against certain enemies and when they should order to retreat. The strategic combat system also uses active pause mechanics to help players take their time in battle, allowing them pause to the game at any time in order to adapt their play style and carefully plan their moves.
