Special Points, or SP, are points used during combat to perform Combat Arts.
SP are shown as a row of small blocks in the main HUD after unlocking the Circuit. At first there are a maximum of 3 SP available for use which will increase in groups of 4 when progressing through the main story. The current maximum is 12, though it is planned to increase to a total of 16.
One-Third of the available SP are colored blue when charged and solid grey when uncharged. These SP recharge automatically at all times, although they are much slower to do so in combat. The other half are colored purple when charged and checkered grey when uncharged, and drain automatically out of combat. SP can also be recharged by hitting an enemy, which is the only way to charge purple SP. A partially-charged SP appears as a small loading bar showing how charged it is. Each additional group of four SP will take longer to charge than the previous group.
SP are consumed to perform Combat Arts. In the current game, level 1 Combat Arts requires one fully-charged SP to be used, while those at level 2 require 3 SP.
Update 9.0[edit | edit source]
The amount of blue points was reduced from 50% to 25% of the total SP in update 9.0, partially to balance the release of the Level 2 Combat Arts.
