Skills are various attributes that an Elite enemy or special enemy possesses. There are 2 type of skills: Active and Passive. Active skills e.g. Stab, Reverse, Ground Flame, etc, can be triggered periodically and is visible to player as the skill icons blink constantly during active period. Passive skills e.g. Thick skin, Strong Power, etc, affect the overall stats of the enemy. Most skills can be negated by using an Attribute-Clearance Equip, with the exemption of Crystalize and Reborn which can't be negated by any means. Certain enemies have unclearable skills as well e.g Stage skills in Otherworld.
Passive skill: Decrease damage taken from players.
Passive skill: Drop a crystal bomb upon dying, explode after a short period dealing AoE damage.
Usually easy to dodge but be careful in combat not to be too close to one since it deals high damage. Dodgeable with increased dodge rate as well.
Passive skill: Increase overall stats when there are less friendly around.
The defense scales pretty high so it's recommended to take these ones out first.
Passive skill: Greatly lower player's damage. Gradually wear out upon being damaged rapidly. Recharge after a short period.
One of the most annoying skill in the game. Use weapons with high fire rate to eliminate these enemies. Be sure to keep on attacking them.
Reverse Cronos Shield
Passive skill: Gradually lower player's damage upon being damaged rapidly. Reset after a short period.
One of the most annoying skill in the game. Use weapons with high damage output to eliminate these enemies. Be sure to finish them in as few hits as possible.
Passive skill: Invulnerable for a short period after spawning.
Not the hardest skill to tackle but annoying nonetheless. Just wait it out and be careful of their attacks.
Passive skill: Share a portion of damage to other friendly with the same skills.
Probably the only skill in the game that can work in your favor. Use it to clear mobs of enemies faster, but beware of Stab + Death Bond combo.
Passive skill: Greatly reduce player's movement speed and attack damage upon dying.
Not debuffable unless use Siegfried Heart. A very annoying skill. You can only either wait it out or bring along Siegfried Heart. There's no running from it.
Passive skill: Blocks all damage for a short period after being hit.
Downright the most annoying skill in the game. Enemies with this skill are usually quite tanky. Deploy the same tactic as R-Cronos enemies to take in down faster. Fast attack will do too but will take much longer to eliminate the enemies.
Passive skill: Limit player's damage to a certain amount.
The cap varies between enemies, ranging from 5,000 to 50,000. Deploy tactics that you see fit. If the damage cap is low, fast weapons are recommended.
Blessing of Right
Passive skill: Greatly lower player's damage if he is on the right of the host.
