Soulstice is a classic Hack’n’Slash a la DMC. Briar and Lute are two sisters reincarnated as Chimera who fight against chaos. Transforming into a Chimera has given Briar superhuman strength and resilience. Lute, on the other hand, was sacrificed to unite her soul with that of her sister.
How does countering work in Soulstice?
In the game, you take on the role of Briar, a dreaded Chimera who brings death to her enemies with her modifiable sword. Your Sister Lute accompanies you as a spirit and can protect you from most enemy attacks.
Your reflexes affect the success of Lute’s defensive actions. When an opponent attacks, a appears Icon in the middle of the opponent. If you press the corresponding button, a slow counter will be carried out and the opponent will be slowed down.
When the icon turns red and you execute a counter, a perfect counter succeeds. Make sure you only counter when you’re being attacked. Otherwise, Lute will be distracted for a few seconds and unavailable to you.
All counter types explained
- Barrier: A barrier counter blocks a melee attack from a lower-class enemy before you get hit.
- Diversion: A deflection counter deflects projectiles fired by a low-class enemy.
- Interruption: An interrupt counter interrupts a low-class enemy before they can act.
Keep an eye on your unit
As a unit, the Bond between Briar and Lute designated. The higher their harmony, the more efficient their combined fight. The two portraits in the upper-right corner of the screen indicate Briar’s level and Lute’s unit.
During the battle you can gain or lose unit. Successfully combining Lute and Briar’s skills will increase your unit, which will fill the indicator. If you are hit by enemies or knocked back, your unit will be reduced.
When you’ve leveled up the unit, the icon will flash gold and you can launch a Synergy Attack. Synergy Attacks are devastating attacks that can clear the entire field of enemies. Each weapon has its own synergy attack. More synergy attacks can be unlocked under “Powers”.
Fields and entropy explained
Through Lute you can activate two different fieldsthat surround you like a great dome. Range and effectiveness can be improved later.
The blue summoning box will manifest any nearby celestial object, such as platforms and cobalt veins. Also, you can only attack enemy spirits if they are in your summoning field.
You need the red banishment field to red crystals to destroy. The crimson overgrowths block your way to new areas. Also, the Taken enemy type can only be attacked when it is in the summoning field.
Entropy and Overload
Maintaining both fields progressively depletes Lute and increases her entropy. When entropy reaches its peak, Lute enters the Overcharged state and cannot be summoned for a period of time. There are improvements that allow you to “Overload” with special effects can equip. For example, all enemies can be frozen when Lute overloads.
Tips on Rush and Alignment
Of the “Intoxication” state only unlocked later in the game. If you activate Rage, you surrender to the beast and enter a very powerful state that affects both Briar and Lute.
In the Rage state, Briar can only attack with her sword, but has increased range and improved damage. Lute, on the other hand, only focuses on offense and cannot counter attacks while in the condition.
Alignment & Rush Improvements
There is also an extra Enhancement Menu from Rausch, which you can see under Lute’s Skills. The traits of the Rage branch are acquired automatically as Lute’s powers are upgraded and depend on your particular alignment.
What are the best upgrades to start with?
You need Briar’s upgrades red crystals, which are obtained by defeating enemies or destroying clusters of red crystals. Lute’s upgrades cost blue crystalswhich you get by destroying main veins.
Briar’s upgrades increase the damage of their weapons and unlock new combos. Lute’s upgrades improve, among other things, the counter and their offensive attacks.
