In Trials of Mana you will notice a section in the menu called Chain Abilities. These are character abilities that you get by using the Training Points. These abilities can be useful for your team members who don’t naturally learn them. Chain abilities bring diversity to your character abilities in Trials of Mana.
There are two types of chain abilities; some abilities are acquired through training points while others are acquired from special NPCs in Trials of Mana. Below are chain abilities aka link abilities for each of the playable Trials of Mana characters.
- Armor Break: Duran has two Chain Abilities. This one is a Duran Chain Ability that boosts your armor reduction value for normal attacks by 50%.
- Damage SP+: This is our second Duran ability which helps the player increase SP by 2% when the player takes damage.
- Absorb: Angela also has two chain abilities in Trials of Mana. The first one is Absorb which allows the player to recover 1 MP when with a heavy attack.
- Limit Break: This is the second link ability for Angela. Players can use this to increase magic damage by 5% in Trials of Mana.
Firestorm: Kevin only has one chain ability as well and that’s Firestorm. Using this link ability allows the player to increase damage dealt by 15% when the character’s health is 30% or less.
- Powerful: Charlotte has two link abilities and the first one is Powerful. It allows the player to increase damage dealt by 5% when performing heavy attacks.
- Defender: This is the second ability for Charlotte. It takes the player’s defense up by 10 and attack power up by 10 as well.
