Elona Wiki

The Elona+ mod adds several new special actions (referred to as actions), and has added some changes to old ones. The following chart was initially shamelessly ripped off of the ElonaPlus wiki. It was reproduced here in an attempt to make it easier to match up skills and attributes with an English translation. Further changes to this page may or may not reflect what is seen there due to the vastly increasing number of actions available.

Note: due to how many special actions are in the game, a now only uses single-target actions, while W is for multi-target/wide-area actions.

Actions under the "W" key will be marked with W on this page.

For ease of finding the actions in-game, the list here shows the icon associated with the action. Actions in-game are grouped in the same order as your main attributes on the stat screen. Quick reference:
Icon-strength Plus.gifIcon-constitution plus.gifIcon-dexterity plus.gifIcon-perception plus.gifIcon-learning plus.gifIcon-will plus.gifIcon-magic Plus.gifIcon-charisma Plus.gif; other icons are at the end of the lists.

Names in parenthesis are for Elona+ Custom players. Accounted changes are spacing and name changes, but not capitalization. (Statement accurate for version 1.90.4).

Also note: "invoke gauge", "power gauge", and "special bar" (and most other combinations involving those words) refer to the same thing. Standardizing the name used is not a priority at this time.

Various calculations for Elona+ special actions can be found here.

Damage based on Constitution and Gene engineer, along with the strength of the poison on the target.

A Gardening skill-dependent speed debuff will be applied on hostile targets that are non-unique NPCs and have a Speed attribute that is half of the user's Speed or higher.

Icon-will plus.gifBlended lie W 10 Usage requires 5 auto turns, rolls against every enemy in sight every turn. Deals SP damage, based off of the sum of both the user's Dexterity and Negotiation, reduced by the target's own Dexterity, and reduces the target's power gauge by 10% when successful.

Is treated as a kill, and can give AP (albeit reduced). Doesn't work while time is stopped. 1/5th as effective on boss + unique NPCs.

Throwing 40 or Jiu-Jitsu feat, 60 dexterity Target NPC is sent to a random tile that is its preferred distance if it is targeting something, or its preferred distance from the player if not. If already occupied, lands in nearby open tile.
Icon-will plus.gifShadow rush W 10 Uses 75% gauge. The caster and all allies perform Shadow Step on the target at roughly half of their normal melee strength. The caster's allies will teleport to the enemy and attack, regardless of distance, whether invisible to them, and whether the target is in their field of vision. 100 Tactics When used by an enemy, such as Getuei the ninja master, there are slight differences: the text "*Shadow Dance*" will appear in the log, and when the caster's initial Shadow Step is performed, the screen turns dark briefly before you receive the subsequent attacks from other enemies on the map. This special action can be extremely dangerous if used by an enemy on an uncleared map, as you will be attacked AND surrounded by literally dozens of foes.
Icon-will plus.gifShadow step 27 Warp to the target and attack. 30 Stealth Old skill, but can now be learned by the player.
Icon-constitution plus.gifShield Parry W 30

Shield Bash Feat, 35 Shield

Max additional 15% chance from the shield effect.

Invert makes the target take 1.75x more damage.

While this works on ranged attacks, does not apply the invert status. If it is a "remote blow" attack, invert will work however.

Icon-strength Plus.gifShining wave 27 Magic based ranged bolt attack. 60 Tactics Does magic damage, but damage done is based on strength and tactics.
Icon-will plus.gifSmile Field W 20 Gives you Retention for 20 turns and all targets (not just allies) in sight the Concentration buff. Gentle Face feat, 40 Will Strength of buff will depend on the number of targets and the user's Will.
Icon-constitution plus.gifSpace retention W 30

Also can reset most field state effects.

Dimensional Move feat, level 50

50 turns in older versions. Speed increases by 12.5%. Does not prevent own teleportation.

Field state effects were introduced in 2.07

Icon-strength Plus.gifSqueeze 10 Hugs an adjacent target for various effects dependent on relationship. 30 Strength If your impress is greater than 100, when their HP decreases, you'll be transferring 1/10 of your life to heal them.

Furthermore, if your impress level is greater than 200, custom flavor text (txtHug section in the custom tone file) will be used when you hug them. The effect is displayed when snapping out of brainwash.

If your impress level with your target is below 100, the NPC will be crushed and take damage, depending on your strength.

Icon-dexterity plus.gifStruck Out 15 Attacks targeted enemy and enemies adjacent to it. 30 Throwing Invokes won't activate. Usable only with throwing weapons (a melee weapon/shield equipped to Shoot slot counts as a throwing weapon).
Icon-constitution plus.gifSuper Armor W 30 Grants 20 turn buff to all allies in line of sight with a heavy equipment weight (35.0s or more). It reduces maximum physical damage taken to 75% of your max HP and gain dim resistance. (No weight hit penalty too?) (Elona Main quest beaten)

35 Heavy Armor

What this buff seems to do is set an upper limit of the maximum damage any physical attack can do before other modifiers.

For example, if you use Zero shoot on a 1 life target with the buff active, it will never die in that one use. If used while attacker is buffed with fury, it will still die regardless. If targeted with Continuous attacks, each hit has an upper damage limit of about 12.5% health; with fury active, this raises to approximately 25% health. If targeted with Body Blow, the 1 life target will die to the 2nd hit it does, even without fury.

This was changed to its current setup in version 1.46.

Icon-perception plus.gifThread of Innervation 14 Range 5. Deals nerve damage to target dependent on Perception and Gene Engineer. Chance to decapitate targets at low health (1/9th max HP or lower on use). Strings Assassin Feat, Gene Engineer 30 Trains Gene Engineer skill since 1.87.

Deals SP damage to the target that is dependent on the user's Dexterity and resisted by the target's Constitution. Can deal an insanity check if SP is less than half and also reduce target's power gauge if Perception is greater than dexterity. Does no damage, but is considered an attack. Certain children will now use this.
Icon-dexterity plus.gifVariable Breath 10 Breath with element which depends on resistances. Fire Breath Feat, 30 Constitution Element with highest resistance is used for breath. Can be taught to pets by Leold for AP.
Icon-dexterity plus.gifVenotrate 20 Fires a bolt that does high poison damage and poisons target. Uses 25% gauge. Poison Nail Feat, 50 Gene Engineer, 20 Tactics Doesn't hit friendly NPCs. Damage based on unlock requirement skills, and is reduced by targets' average of DV and PV, not poison resistance. Bypasses poison immunity. Fixed 2 turns on unique NPCs, otherwise +10 turns and can stack.
Icon-learning plus.gifViolent Garden W 22 Deals Gardening and Learning-dependent poison-element damage to hostile characters in sight. Knowledge of magical plants Feat, 30 Gardening Targets that are not already afflicted by Bind will have 1 turn of Bind applied to them.

Strings Assassin feat, 70 Perception Any character who is on the receiving end of any of the wire special actions will have a wire trap placed at their feet.
Icon-will plus.gifZero shoot 20 Melee range shot with a firearm. 50 Marksman Always scores a critical hit and doubles normal attack power. Does not proc any added damage or consume/use special ammo. While it only works in melee range, the ranged weapon always ignores its normal ranged modifier at that range.

Only for regular enemies. Trains Negotiation when this happens. Is treated as a kill, and can give AP (albeit reduced). Doesn't work while time is stopped. 1/5th as effective on boss + unique NPCs.

Special actions with changes from normal Elona[]

Name Sp Effect Changes

Icon-dexterity plus.gifDrain Blood 7 Nether damage and drains 5-7 stamina. Also inflicts very weak bleeding. Stamina drain + bleeding has been added. Stamina cost is taken first, but successfully draining a target that has more than 0% stamina returns back the cost afterward.

Icon-dexterity plus.gifSuspicious Hand 10 Only NPCs can use this. Steals gold from adjacent target and teleports the user randomly afterward. Same as base Elona, but now with additional caveats from version 1.99 on.

NPCs with the "summoned monster" bit flag always performs a regular attack instead when attempting to use this, as they don't drop money (or anything) on death.

Targeted sandbagged NPCs will now resist being robbed, because the rope is too tight.

Icon-strength Plus.gifSwarm 27 Attacks all adjacent enemies. Previously cost 5 SP and gained at 16 Tactics. Now gained at 30 Tactics.
Throw Potion None NPC only skill. Randomly generated potions are thrown by the NPC. The skill has three different levels, determined by the type of NPC.

The three basic levels are Minor, Major, and Greater. Greater is new to Elona+. It includes Disasters and Aqua Sanctios.

Another variant is Salt throwing, but it is unique to Cleaners. With high enough master/servant relationship, you can make your pets "Exterminate snail."

Icon-magic Plus.gifTouch of weakness 10 NPC only skill. Statistics of the attacked creature may be lowered. Now doesn't function on unique NPCs or NPCs with increased "quality". (<> or {} surrounding the name). Non unique pets can have increased "quality" from spending 1000 AP.

Special actions obtained through actions[]

The following special actions are gained through ingame, non-standard methods.

Name Sp Effects Obtained By Remarks
Icon-constitution plus.gifBlame Pain 19 Deals nether damage dependent on the user's Will + Constitution 4 times, and applies 1 turn of Bind if target is not already bound. Use Tamer's Whip on NPC until they reach their limit. (Use forbid eating objects on the ground/picking up items on an NPC repeatedly until the skill is granted). Granted immediately upon fulfillment. 5 Tile Range.

The user's Will + Constitution is also rolled against the target's, and if the user wins the roll, the target's power gauge will also decrease by 15.

The first of the 4 attacks of this special action will work to increase the target's gauge, so the actual net change to the target's gauge will vary.

Icon-constitution plus.gifCharge Attack

(Charge)
30 Does 10x normal damage. Has to charge up for 10 turns. Once it charges, gain a buff with a duration of 1 turn that makes the next attack deal 10x damage. Leold for 1000 AP It will be interrupted if a status effect is received. Last for 1 turn for the player and 3 turns for NPCs.

Before version 1.32, gained by having 120 constitution and progressing through the storyline enough.

Before version 1.155, being attacked will interrupt it.

Pets can learn it from Leold too.

Icon-dexterity plus.gifContinuous attacks 5

4 tile range. Attacks an enemy 18 times per equipped melee weapon (dual wielder gets 36 hits) in a row at 1/6th normal damage per hit. From version 1.92 on, also doubles the accuracy, even if negative.

Weapon invokes, elemental damage, and the "chance of extra melee attack" enchantment are ignored. Critical hits and proximity assist weapon/interlocking shooting mechanism attacks happen normally.

Leold for 100 AP

Absolute piercing attacks and critical hits are subjected to the damage reduction. Proximity assist/interlocking shooting mechanism seem to be limited to one proc per use, albeit will fire at normal strength.

Each hit doesn't count toward the combo counter (which reduces your damage if it gets too high). The multiple hits can fill up the target's gauge up to 50% in 1 use from target taking damage or dodging.

Used by Carter_the_skilled_foot, hand of the god, fallen bird, and rushroom.

Icon-dexterity plus.gifDecapitation 30 Attack an enemy for damage (based on your Dexterity, reduced by the target's PV). When enemy HP is low enough (1/9th max HP), have a chance to do lethal damage. Inflict 3 turns of dyspnea if target HP isn't low enough. Have the "Your hands are blades." Ether Disease. The 3 turns of dyspnea only apply if target has less than 10 turns of dyspnea on them.

Other sources of the lethal damage effect do not share this action's damage and dyspnea application.

In its current form as of version 1.84.

Icon-dexterity plus.gifDistant Attack 2 Attacks a targeted enemy from a distance up to 4 spaces. Added to the special action menu when a weapon with the It make possible to remote blow attribute is equipped in a hand slot. It is similar to the NPC-only action, but is dexterity based.
Icon-dexterity plus.gifDisturbance 10 Reduces the special invoke bar of a targeted opponent. Automatic Long range skill. Consumes half of your current invoke gauge, then reduces the target's by that amount.
Icon-will plus.gif<Gauge Release> 1 Allows you to use an invoke when gauge is at 100% or higher. (see the chart of invokes below) Level up for the first time. Does not use a turn and does not do anything except waste the stamina if not enough gauge.

Even if it does nothing, trains will each use by .001.

Icon-constitution plus.gifMarking 10 Decreases user's hydration. When aimed at feet, generates urine. When targeting an adjacent tile with an NPC on it, applies Fury and Wet for 3 turns. Use any deed. Granted immediately upon fulfillment. 1 Tile Range. Stacks on any existing turns of Fury and Wet target has.

Increases skill level of Tactics, Casting, Magic Device, Eye of Mind, Control Magic, Marksman, and Riding by about (1.3x + 6). Immune to brainwash status.

Don't actually need to be in a tag team to utilize it.

Have 4 or more pets with you and level up. Damage is based on Tactics, Marksman, Casting, and Magic Device skills, multiplied by that character's power gauge (200% gauge = 2x for example) and summing each involved character's resulting totals.

Always deals max possible multiplier of damage. Rather than being based on average +enhance value of equipment.

Trains the mentioned skills if target is not sandbagged and does not have the "summoned NPC" bit flag.

Must target a hostile NPC. Can be used on any in visible range.

Icon-strength Plus.gifVoracity Fang 12 Nether-element melee attack. Drains a small amount of HP from the target and causes bleeding. Have the "your mouth is torn" Ether Disease.

Special actions unique to races[]

The following special actions are available only to certain NPCs.

Name Sp Effect Remarks
Icon-constitution plus.gifAbsolute protect W 80

Grants a 50 turn buff to user. If an ally would take lethal damage, user takes half of that damage instead. User can go below 0 HP, and stay alive provided no further damage is taken once below that.

Lethal damage from any source applies as long as the buff is active and user can take the hit.

The player can properly use this via the "Contradiction" item after completing the main storyline and talking to Sophia (version 2.05 and later).

Added in version 1.10.

Used by evolved Defenders and evolved zombie girls.

Complete lethal damage sources, such as 2.06-introduced-cheatahs, can be diverted to user. Damage from fire/acid tiles, negative MP and MP leak/emission, bleeding, and poison can all be blocked provided user has more than 0 HP.

Be aware that this will apply to all friendly units. Even non-party allies.

Icon-constitution plus.gifAcid Hurricane 5 If the target has the cArmour bit flag, it will also inflict Poisoned status ailment regardless of resistance to Poisoned status ailment. If the target has the cMetal bit flag, it will also inflict Poisoned Bad! status ailment regardless of resistance to Poisoned status ailment. Both of these status ailments will stack with repeated Acid Hurricane attacks. Damage dealt by it cannot be mitigated in any way so the base damage is rather low. Control Magic is needed to avoid friendly fire.

Used by Cloudragon, <Dain> the elder of hill, Hel, Old bell, and <Luluwy>.

Icon-will plus.gifBind 20 Target will not be able to move from their current location for the duration of the skill. Used by <Amurdad>, an evolved Cute Fairy, and Halloween nightmare. Target can still perform actions and teleport.
Icon-magic Plus.gifBlade Turbulence W 15 Deals cut damage to enemies within sight, inflicts bleeding. Strength of damage based on Magic Control, while the bleed strength depends on the difference of initial speed between the user and the target. Used by black wing, mayu sibayu, and stormbling.

While unconfirmed, I believe the higher the initial speed is versus the target, the weaker the bleed strength inflicted.

Icon-will plus.gifBound in Blood 28 Affects allies of the same race. The user will bleed severely. Gives Speed, Hero, and Attribution Shield, depending on the Will of the target. Has less of an effect on the player. If gauge is less than 50%, increase it by at most 30%, depending on the target's gauge.

Icon-magic Plus.gifDeath Song W 30 Guaranteed Death Word hex to caster, then tries to apply Death Word hex to everybody in sight. Chance based on user's magic against target sound resistance. Used by alkonost and Death maneki.

This time stop is triggered by the Gods and their inner god versions as an invoke (may not be true in later versions?). It seems to trigger regardless of weapon, but might just have high priority over the normal weapon or skill invokes.

Special actions invoked through Gauge Release[]

How the special gauge works[]

In order to actually use a gauge-release-special, you need to fill up your bar to 100% (or more), then use the <Gauge-Release> special action.

The gauge is displayed below a NPC's HP/MP bars.

SpecialGauge1.png

This is the gauge as it's filling, which will be divided approximately to the target's gauge %. You can see this on your targeted enemy and on your party/pets if you use the stehoscope item on them.

The gray gauge means that (enemy) NPC cannot use any gauge-release specials, but shows how much it is filled. If a NPC has an action that consumes gauge, this is relevant (though I don't think any exist). The orange and green bar denote 1-99% and 101-199% gauge respectively.

SpecialGauge2.png

This is how the bar looks filled at 100% and 200%, with green being 200% full.

The green overlaps the 100% yellow bar when 101-200% is building.

The rest of this section is on how the special gauge works more specifically. This was written based on 2.06fix being the most recent version, and should cover most general cases. Click "Expand" to show.
  • Switching to a new map resets all gauges to 0%
  • When not at 0, 100%, or 200%, the gauge decreases by 1% each turn.
    • When at those (or negative %), the gauge will not decrease further.
    • Any action that uses the gauge (or an attack against you that lowers it below 100/200%) will cause it to resume decreasing again.
  • By default, you and most NPCs have a limit of 100%
    • Evolved pets and unique NPCs have a 200% gauge limit.
    • You can temporarily obtain 200% gauge limit by use of a shift core item.
  • Each attack, damaging spell, and/or damaging action fills your gauge by 2% by default. They must activate properly, but don't necessarily have to hit (for regular attacks).
  • Taking damage also fills your gauge up to 95%(96?), and is proportional to the % of your health lost (sloppy test says approximately 1.5x your % of health lost that turn, along with the regular +2% for you. For pets/NPCs, it's 1x?)
    • Each successful dodge of a hostile target's attack fills the your gauge (or pet) by 4%, up to 96%.
  • Hostile enemies that die on screen give 5% gauge to you and all allies that can see the hostile.
  • On using a gauge-release with 100% (or more) gauge, attacking with the equipped weapon or using a specific special action will use one of the specials below while consuming your gauge by 100 or 200%.
    • Gauge-release at 200% ignore damage resistance from armor skill too, along with giving 1 turn of time stop.

There are several specific caveats for each action. What is here is not exhaustive of each action's specifics.

  • Dodges against Continuous attacks has an upper limit of 50% gauge fill to prevent gauges from filling faster via taking or dodging all hits.
  • The additional hit from #Abyss in the eye on eye actions that gives an additional +2% gauge from its additional hit.
  • Power Item makes its related actions fill your gauge 4% per turn.
  • Don't forget about actions that can lower gauge too, with common available examples such as Blame Pain, Disturbance, and Pressure.
  • Some actions that fill the gauge a larger amount, such as Collected Power, must be exactly 84% to fill the gauge to 100% (or 200%). Otherwise, the gauge will only decrease 1% on that turn.

  • What determines their damage is...?
    • Guessing their related attributes. Old definition seems wrong.

NPCs will use a gauge-release special immediately if they do an action that allows for it while at 100% (or more) gauge. Assuming too they actually can use specials. (Haven't double checked properly for recent version, but):

  • Any unique NPC can use gauge attacks regardless of level.
  • NPCs level 50 or above, starting from Lost Irva can use gauge attacks. Along with any enemies with boosted stats, such as in The Void.
  • NPCs level 130 or above will be able to use them.

List of invoked specials[]

The stamina use listed is for the special action version shown while in wizard mode.

Name Sp Effect Remarks
Icon-perception plus.gifArrow Rain 30 Does moderate damage in a 3x3 area around the target. Causes wince for 2 turns. Invoked by arrows.
Icon-strength Plus.gifBisection 30 High damage attack. Causes bleeding. Invoked by the axe weapon proficiency.
Icon-dexterity plus.gifConverge Breath 15 (30) Same effect as a breath attack, in a line, repeated six times. Heals for a large amount afterward (1/3rd user max health). Invoked by any Breath special action. The attack takes place instead of the breath weapon, rather than afterwards. The color of the attack changes depending on the user's resistance, but the damage is non-elemental. Allows user to be over normal max health which may reset to normal max at random points.
Icon-perception plus.gifCritical Particle Cannon 30 Does high damage in a big line. Causes blind status. Invoked by energy cells. Blind ignores resistances. Color of effect depends on user's highest resistance.
Icon-dexterity plus.gifDance of blow 30 Extra-high damage attack consisting of 16 strikes. Invoked by the stave weapon proficiency.
Icon-magic Plus.gifData Delete 1 Permanently decreases attributes of target by 1 and sets their power gauge to 0 if any higher. Does no damage and unavoidable. Use Memory Poison at 100% gauge. In current form as of version 1.82; was previously not an invoke(?)
Icon-magic Plus.gifDiffusion Wave 30 Hits enemies in range with a breath attack for magic damage. Heals user. Invoked by the casting skill (Elona+ 1.26). Will activate when casting any spell with a full gauge, even normally non-damaging ones, or by using a rod. The attack does not hit neutral enemies. It will also not be reflected by equipment with the reflection attribute. (As of Elona+ 2.04, also comes out on a failed cast of an attack spell, and doesn't seem to work on every spell.)
Icon-will plus.gifExplosion 30 Extra-high damage attack. Gives back some of your gauge (17% on test). Invoked by the martial arts weapon proficiency.
Icon-will plus.gifGHAND

(Hand of Splendor)
30 Power depends on the average of Will and Magic, and deals high damage. Invoked by any "Touch" skills at 100% gauge. Increased power, range, and changed behavior when used with Blue Spirit equipped. Likely a shortened translation of "glittering hands", as "You slammed the dazzling light to the ____" appears in the text box, which itself may be a reference to G Gundam's Shining Gundam.
Icon-constitution plus.gifGraviton Buster 20 Deals high damage in a breath shape based on user's Constitution and area's danger level (max of 2000). Breath destroys wall and floor tiles.

Invoked by Gravity Sphere.

Affected targets will gain +50 turns of Gravity status ailment and a Slow debuff that is stronger than that of Gravity Sphere. Damage is not reduced by Feather.

In version 1.77, the damage contribution from area danger level was reduced.

Icon-perception plus.gifHelm Smasher 30 Does high damage and paralyzes target. Can decapitate low health enemies. Invoked by bolts. Paralysis ignores resistance.
Icon-perception plus.gifImpact Gunfire 30 Does high damage, causes blind, and 2 turns of invert status (takes 1.75x damage) if not already inverted. Invoked by magnum ammo.
Icon-dexterity plus.gifIssen

(Flash of Swiftness)
30 Extra-high damage attack. Lowers target's power gauge. Invoked by the long sword weapon proficiency.
Icon-dexterity plus.gifMana slash 30 Medium damage(?) + MP damage to target. Invoked by the scythe weapon proficiency.
Icon-magic Plus.gifMind Break 30 Mental Pollution Invoked by any Eye special action. Use of Eye action is accompanied by two more powerful hits. Makes target vomit, and has a chance to apply a random negative status effect (Fear, Dim, Confusion).

Likely used to be called "Mental Pollution" in much older versions.

Icon-perception plus.gifOne Point Shoot 30 Does high damage and lowers defense. (75% as effective as the Pulverization invoke) Invoked by bullets.
Icon-dexterity plus.gifPenetration 30 High damage attack. Stuns enemy for one turn. Invoked by the polearm weapon proficiency.
Icon-strength Plus.gifPulverization 30 Medium damage attack; lowers enemy defense for 2 turns. Invoked by the blunt weapon proficiency.
Icon-will plus.gifResonant Voice 30 Decreases 1 enemy gauge by 50% (below 0% possible), deal Negotiation, Analysis, Will, and equipment +enhance value-dependent SP damage. Use any of the Negotiation/Empathy Feat special actions (Persuasion, Peculiar joke, Blended lie, Intimidation, Mysterious song) at 100% or more gauge.

The damage calculation is the same as the Negotiation special actions (Unsure: more likely means "if enemy is put at -100 SP or lower, enemy withdraws similar to those special actions"). Only uses 1 turn (instead of 1 turn + 5 auto turns).

This completely replaced Guts of Snail.

Shield bash

(Icon-dexterity plus.gifShield Strike)
n/a (30) Does damage, causes dim, and causes 1 turn of paralysis. The Shield Bash feat supposedly adds the turn of paralysis, but testing has said otherwise. This is the standard shield bash. However the activation requirements now match the rest of the invokes.

Activates before a normal attack unlike most invokes.

In-game as of version 2.05, this is listed as "Icon-dexterity plus.gifMana slash". This is the 2nd of the 2 listed in-game, appearing later below Knockout. Mistakenly also says *Mana slash* in the text box when used despite the flavor text stating otherwise.

Icon-dexterity plus.gifSpinning Throw 30 Starts with a tornado animation centered on the user. Never misses, stronger than normal attack, guaranteed critical. Invoked by the throwing weapon proficiency.
Icon-will plus.gifUnderhand Drop 30 Medium damage attack. Causes Fear status for one turn (or 4 from version 2.04 test on regular enemy). Invoked by the short sword weapon proficiency.

(Piercing Zero Shoot)
20 (30) Teleports to the optimal range for the equipped weapon, shoots, then teleports back. Guaranteed critical. Invoked by the firearm weapon proficiency from version 1.26 to 1.70. Replaced functionally by invokes based on ammo equipped from version 1.71 on.

Old info for how special gauge worked from when section named "Special actions invoked by weapon skill" existed. Click "Expand" to show.

Starting in Elona+ version 1.19, a new weapon-based invoke system was added to the game. The creators note that they were supposed to resemble decapitation, they've reached the limit on how many invokes a weapon could have.

The skill that is invoked usually depends on the weapon proficiency that the weapon uses. However, certain weapons use other weapon's skill invokes. This means that while the weapon may be It's power and effect is still based on its original category. For example, short swords and kitchen knives will use the short sword invoke, while wakizashi and scimitars will use the long sword invoke. Even though they use different invokes, their power is still dependent on the short sword skill.

The standard shield bash's requirements now match those of the other invokes listed here.

|===Conditions for use===

There is a gauge below your HP bar. If the gauge reaches 100%, you can do the special action <Gauge Release> to trigger the special skill on your next attack. Once at 100%, the gauge will not decrease until consumed or the player changes maps (including up/down floors).

These specials can be used by:

  • You and your pets. Pet special bar display can be seen by using a stethoscope.
  • Enemies over level 130 at any time.
  • Once you reach Lost Irva, enemies over level 50 can use them. This includes enemies in the Void and in missions where the level of the enemy has been modified.
  • Enemies of any level in No Future mode, which is chosen at the start of a new game.

Note that if you have gear that lets you attack multiple times per turn, and the first attack both kills the target and gets your gauge up to 100%, the skill will be activated with no target, effectively wasting the whole gauge.

|===Conditions that affect the gauge===

  • The gauge will automatically lose its charge by 1% every turn and will be completely drained if you switch maps.
  • Doing physical attacks will charge the gauge by 2%.
  • Taking damage from enemies (even if it's 0 damage or the attack was evaded) will charge your gauge by 1%.
    • The charge gain from damage is capped as of patch 1.21.
  • Whether you are on the attacking side or receiving side, you will only receive the charge after everyone's turn ends. Therefore, continuously attacking enemies will not result in a faster rate of increasing your gauge charge.
  • When you beat a character, the same type of character around the attacker and ones you have hostile relations with will receive a 5% charge to their gauge.
  • Specials will no longer charge when friendlies of the same type die, in a change from patch 1.20.

|===Conditions that affect damage===

  • Damage depends mostly on weapons rather than stats.
  • If your opponent is wielding a weapon on their main hand, the special action can be rendered invalid, based on their greater evasion. The action will appear to miss if this is the case. Even if it wasn't blocked by greater evasion, it still helps on lowering its damage.
  • Specials now do extra damage to stronger monsters if you have the Courage feat.
  • Pets set in defense mode can drain enemy charge using their own charge, using the Disturbance special action.
  • The Courage AP feat and the Fury status should factor into the damage done by the special skills.

|===Special text display===

You can set special text for these actions by using a talk text file. An example file can be found in your User/Talk folder as sample.txt, and any new file you create must be placed in this folder for the game to find it. The text for the invoke appears under %txtSpecial,EN. You can use multiple lines, and the line that is said will be picked randomly when the action is activated. To apply the file to your character, interact with yourself, then choose Change Tone and pick the text file. Keep in mind that sample.txt contains the information for the "younger brother" NPC, and so might contain some other text that your character will use. The file might not work without certain sections, although the lines might be allowed to be blank.

Going through the trouble to replace the tone is the only way to replace the default Decapitation text that appears when a special is used.

|===List of invoked specials===

These actions are normally activated by weapon use, similar to Decapitate. But like decapitate, these also show up in the special actions list. This is presumably for NPC use. The stamina use listed is for the special action version. The listed attribute that the skill is based on is presumably just for the special action as well.
