Skilltree Saga – Enemy Types and Combat Skill Selection (2024)

Skilltree Saga – Enemy Types and Combat Skill Selection (1)

Welcome to this post This Skilltree Saga – Enemy Types and Combat Skill Selection Guide was written to be of use to you, and it is our honest hope that you will find that to be the case.

Skills guide you can choose based on who you will face. Take the guesswork out; you’ve got better games to play.

Welcome to the sub-standard guide. The time I spent on the beautiful visuals and moving text demonstrate how much you and this title mean to me.

What this guide’s not:

  • Well written
  • Complete
  • Detailed
  • You can find out more about it here
  • Politically,
  • High calorie

Why the heck would you want it, then? There aren’t many guides or combat tips for this game in the forums. So, after completing the entire game, I decided that I would compile all my combat notes and create a quick guide for you to use. It will make life easier for you.

As you play you learn new combat techniques. You will also be faced with many different types of opponents. These enemies can also be either normal or elite. The combat skills that each enemy type uses in battle are determined by whether or not they belong to the 1%. The good news: they always use the same skills, in the exact order. The bad thing is you won’t know which skills they are until you battle them. You don’t even know what skills the enemy will use after you die.

It’s only a minor issue at first, but once you start facing more enemy types and are faced with a variety of them, it becomes harder to remember. The combat abilities you choose should primarily protect your butts, counter their skill, and stomp into the ground their faces. The problem arises when you forget to check if the spider leaves on turn 1, turn 2, or turn 3. Then add in more similar enemies. “Umm… Crystal golem… emerald… ruby… which do I want to silence immediately with a windbreaker?”

After dealing with this confusing situation for more runs than I would like to admit, after a while, I started writing down the types of enemies I faced and what skills I was going to use to defeat them. Here are your enemies. It’s simple: The game will tell you who you are facing. Find it on the list, then set your abilities in that order before going into battle.

Call out 1. As we have said, these are incomplete. Since I never intended this to be a guide, some enemy types are missing. Because many die quickly even if you don’t look dumb or are weak as a finch, I have never been in a battle long enough to make recommendations for skills that would last three, four, five or six turns.

Call out 2 is a little different. It lists some bosses of the first realm, but it only kicks off for the 2nd realm. The third realm is “complete.”

Call out 3. The bosses in each realm can be found at the bottom of that realm’s list.

Call out 4 : these are my quick thoughts. They may not 100% accurate since I did’t always go to update. Sorry. Should be >90%

Call out 5 : you may be weaker when you face the same enemy type for the first time than I was. This could result in the selection of skills not being optimal. You could be much stronger than me, and find the skills take too long. You’ll learn how strong or weak your are and be able to adjust accordingly.

Call out number 6: Yes! Another call out. As you grow stronger, you’ll be able simplify and shorten your battles. But it would be best if you conserved your mana when you reach the third realm. Don’t use a high-mana attack if you can finish someone with a lesser skill.

There are some skills that I’ve not even used. Skills I’ve tried and they are terrible. There are some that you’ll use over and OVER again.

Prioritize getting and maximizing (4 levels):

Earth Shield

Blitz Attack


These are essentials that you must have before you can move forward.

After that it would be Burning Jab followed by Diamond Blade, Water Double, and Frozen Shackles in some order. I liked Frozen Shackles and Obliterated together, but Frozen Shackles negates many fewer enemy hits than you think. Terd.

They all are, copied and pasted in their digital chicken-scratch glory from my Notepad file. I added a few words of advice. “Make sections for the realms!” I kind of like this.

8 Nether Flurry, Diamond blades, Windbreakers, Blitz. I will rock your world if the battle goes on. In this situation, a vacuum ball can be very helpful.

Turn 1 It gains resistance, defense and courage.

At 300 courage you are faster. You are faster at 314. You need to stop the fire storm.

Turn 1 he casts Desolation

Turn 2 diamond blade

Turn 3 Casts Fire tornado
