The most common encounter type, challenging your strength and strategy
There are three types of Combat Encounters:
- Common combat encounters are the most common, making up the majority of the Map.
- Elite combat encounters are less common, offering greater difficulty and reward
- Boss combat encounters occur once per Region, standing between you and moving on to the next region of the World Map at the end of each Region.
Combat in Oni's Quest is a card-based strategy where players and enemies each take a turn exchanging actions. The actions that you, the player, can take are determined by the deck you have curated and the cards that you draw each turn, but also by the Mana (aka Energy) that you have each turn to spend to play cards. Each turn, the player draws a set amount of cards and their energy meter is replenished.
Playing a card from your hand, requires mana. Once you are out of mana, it's the end of your turn and a chance for your enemies to do their worst. The mana cost of each deck card is shown in the top left, so choose wisely.
When you end your turn, the enemies will take theirs. All enemies have their own "deck" of actions that they can take. So while their possible abilities are generally consistent, the specific actions they take are not always so predictable. Plan your strategy each turn accordingly.
