One of the main fundamentals of all RPG games is combat. This section will cover the battle system of Legend of Heroes:Trails of Cold Steel.
This gauge determines the turn order, appearing on the left side of the screen. The game provides many ways of manipulating turn order, every action has a different delay parameter. For example: if you move, you can have your turn back after two turns, but if you attack, you won't get your turn until 4 turns later. There is also skills that can cause additional delay to enemies. The key of winning combat is learning how to adjust turn orders and use them to your advantage.

It is also called S-Break, which is when you press the Triangle button. This lets you use your S-Craft without being your turn.
Members of Class VII will receive an Arcus units that is used for equipping Quartz (gemstones composed of Sepith). Each character will be equipped with a Master Quartz, which contains a set of spells, status attributes and special effects. This can be used as a quick way of setting a character battle type (Fighter, Healer, Magician, etc...). There is also regular type of Quartz, which will let you use Arts (magic) or other status boosts depending on the Quartz. You can unlock additional Orbment slots at the price of Sepith.
On the Field Map, you can use the Field Attack function by pressing the X button. If you encounter an enemy and strike it from behind, it will cause them to be stunned. During this moment you can start an enemy encounter with an additional advantage. This allows your character to take turns earlier and reduced enemy HP. The enemy can also do this to you.
Unlike most RPGs. In the Legend of Heroes games, abnormal status actually work on bosses which is one the main key of winning combat. You can take advantage of these status defects to gain a huge advantage in battle. Of course the same can happen to you as well.

Watch the introduction sequence, you will control the boy with the dark hair.
Head forward to the next area, you will encounter a group of drones. This will be your first battle, and all party members should be at level 49. Your party members are very strong at this point, so you don't really need to worry about losing. If your HP drops very low, you can heal yourself with items or healing abilities. It is highly recommended you avoid all battles at this moment, as you don't get to keep anything from here. When you reach near the exit, you can use the Orbment Charging Station to fully recover your party. After you are done, exit and you will face two robots which will be the first boss of the game.
|Zephryanthes x2||26500 (Normal)||150, 100, 100, 100|
|This is your first boss of the game, both robots have a ton of HP. A quick way of depleting the boss's HP is to use your S-Break by pressing the Triangle button. The robots can hit really hard with its laser attack. If any of your party members is K.O., you can use Emma's Serene Blessing to revived them, or a Reviving Balm item.|
You will gain control over the protagonist, Rean. You can speak to the town NPC and see certain events by checking and visiting other places first. A lot of the charm from playing a Legend of Heroes game is that NPC dialogue will change depending on when you talk to them. If you are ever lost in the game, pressing the Square button will open the navigation menu, which will tell you the next objective. Now go to the north exit to Thors Military Academy, watch the orientation event.
When you have control, examine your weapon on the left side. You will receive a Master Quartz along with your weapon. Open the menu and equip the Master Quartz in the Orbment menu. Afterwards, there will be some arguments between the rest of the class when everyone is finished talking, only Elliot and Gaius will join your party.
Note: If you plan on getting the Platinum trophy for this game, you need to find every single treasure chest in the game, as well as analyze all monster data. This section of the Old Schoolhouse is a one time access only area. So try your best to explore it as much as you can.
|Name||Item Drop 1||Item Drop 2|
|Flying Feline||Red Beast Flesh||U-Material|
|Grass Drome||Coarse Rock Salt||Clear Gelatin|
|Coin Beetle||S-Tablet||Chitinous Shell|
|Sepith x50 (7 Colours)||Old School House - Underground Area 1|
|Tear||Old School House - Underground Area 2|
|Sepith x50 (7 Colours)||Old School House - Underground Area 3|
As you leave, you will see a monster, if you manage to sneak up on it and striking it by using the X button, you can gain an additional advantage in combat. Depending on your performance in battle, you can gain bonus exp on your victory. The more times you have fought the monster, more information regarding that monster will be added into your notebook. There is also an ability (Elliot and Emma's Detector ability) and an item (Battle Scope) that allows you to unlock all this information at once. If you are planning getting the platinum trophy, you need to filled the Monster Guidebook completely.
Get the Needle Shot Quartz located in the treasure chest to your north. If you forgot the treasure chest, Elliot will remind that there is an object right there. As you head downstairs, you will encounter an Orbment Charging Station, use it to fully restore your party. As you go a little further, you will encounter a slime-type enemy, these Grass Dromes are weak against Arts attack. You can cast Arts at it, or rely on Elliot to hurt it. As you go further you will find an insect-type monster. There will be a lot in this battle, the best method is to rely on Gaius's Craft ability, Gale Stinger as it has the ability to seal them (Prevents target from using physical attacks). Afterwards, Machias will join your party. From here on, keep moving forward, you will eventually meet up with the girls. Continue further and you will encounter Fie. From here you can find a treasure chest containing the Tear quartz located on the west. Keep moving forward to the east area, you will encounter Jusis fighting some monsters. Afterwards, Machias and Jusis will argue, you are given two choices, if you reprimand Jusis, Machias will stay with your party, if you stop Machias, Jusis will join your party. Then take the south exit to Underground area 3. From here, there is a treasure chest located on the north and south corner. When you have picked up the two treasure chest, take the southeast exit to go the next area. Heal up by using Orbment Charging station, and save your game as well, as there is a boss fight right just ahead.
|Boss||HP||Elemental Efficacy||Item Drop|
|Iglute Garmr||8270 (Normal)||Form 1: 120, 120, 120, 120|
Form 2: 125, 100, 120, 100
|The best thing you can do for this boss fight is to use Elliot's Craft ability, this will recover your HP each turn. The boss also carries a lot of area type attacks, it's best for you to have your party member spread out, so they don't all get hit by its area attack. Arts are highly effective against the first form due to it's poor magic defense. When you have dropped the boss's HP below 50%, it will change form. The second form, is a bit more aggressive and has different stats then the previous form, with stronger magic defense but lower physical defense. Overall, if you keep yourself buff up with Elliot's Craft ability, this battle should be a piece of cake.|

Anyway, visit each of Class VII members, speak to them to hand out the student notebook to them. You can always check the map to see who hasn't received their notebook yet. When you are done, return to your room and head to bed.
Read the letters that Rean received from the mail box. In order to accept Side Quest (Task), you need to read the request letter first to accept the task.

|This boss fight is like facing a bunch of grunt units. Each grunt unit can attack from a distance, the good thing is all of these rangers are really fragile, you probably could take them out with a few attacks. If you manage to get hit them with your area effect skills, you will end this battle real quickly.|

|As soon as the battle begins, Rean will unlock his S-Break ability. The boss has two grunt units with it, so take care of the two Gordi Chief first. The main boss is huge, but its also clumsy in it's movement, that it might end up wasting it's turn without doing anything. When the boss starts to attack, it can swipe with its claws hitting multiple targets. Sometimes the boss will do Fist of Fury which deals massive damage to a single target. Alisa is actually very handy for this battle, with her Blessed Bow ability, you can easily heal your allies and boost your CP.|
