Essence question

Post by Royta » Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:54 am

Hey quick question about NG2, how does the essence system work? I know that in NGB the essence you gain is increased by the combo meter and if killed by ET or UT, is it the same here? Or does OB give the most? Cheers :thumb:

OT = 2x
ET = 3x
UT = 7x

I can't remember if combo increases the essence amount but combos over 20 force yellow (or green in Mission Mode) essence

According to the NG2 manual, a higher combo yields more yellow essence in the story mode. I think i did notice getting more essence keeping my combo meter up.

Followup question, if I kill a foe using an UT but do a follow-up OT (because he lost a head for instance), do I get OT or UT essence?

I think you get the OT essence. Cuz it iz the killing technique that determines your essence

It is just my personal guess. For all we know it could be the last technique used on an enemy but IIRC then it could be the finishing technique and not the killing technique that determines your essence multiplier
