About the EXskill
The EXskill's combo level is different from MMZ3 or MMZ4, use them before you use the triple slash is the right way. And the EXskill KOUGENJIN is useless, but i have opened it to show how to use it in a right way, because it is really a little special.
About the combo levels
I'll put some attack action's combo level I have found in here:
- LV1:Jump slash, Dash slash, Stand slash, Move slash, Charged slash, all the EXskills of saber, all of the shoot attack, nomal attack with chain rod, charge shield, the first hit with charge chain rod.
- LV2:Double slash, the second hit with charge chain rod.
- LV3:Triple slash, the third hit with charge chain rod.
- LV4:The fourth hit with charge chain rod.
About weapon level up choose:
Accroding to the combo system of this game, and with klmz's suggestion, I have chose to make the saber and chain rod levelup for their charged attack.
About Phoenix Magnion's battle
This battle is the most specially boss battle in Megaman Zero series. The electrical attack will takes more damege, but it also will stop Magnion's action, then we can't do any combo attack, and just when it use the shadow attack or rush attack, we can combo it, so I have choose some nomal property attacks and manipulate its rush attack and shadow attack come out to fight with it.
About Kuwagust Anchus & Herculious Anchortus's battle:
Another specially battle, you can't finish this battle if they don't crash into each other, though their HP are equal to 0, the improved in this battle is let Kuwagust Anchus to catch Zero to stop its action, it could be save lots of frames.
