Octopath Traveler is a great, beautiful return to the Square Enix role-playing games of the SNES era. It has an exceptional cast of characters, an interesting story that gradually unfolds and a satisfying combat system.

Being an old school role-playing game, you'll spend a lot of your time fighting enemies. These enemies will attack you at random as you explore the game map.

Besides, it's the random fighting that's very old-school.

Exploiting Enemies' Weaknesses

Every enemy in Octopath Traveler has a number of weaknesses that you can use to help you do more damage and defeat them faster. These weaknesses can be exploited using one of twelve different attacks you have, both physical and elemental.

These are: Sword, Dagger, Spear, Axe, Stick, Bow, Fire, Ice, Lightning, Wind, Darkness and Light.

Most enemies have at least two weak points and lower level enemies usually have four or five. You can discover every enemy's weakness by trial and error until you have enough experience to figure out what to use and against whom.

This list may not be exhaustive because it is not guaranteed that you will face all the enemies of the bestiary. Over time, we will try to complete the list.
