Xenoblade Chronicles was originally a Wii JRPG that got released back in 2010, and it’s making a grand return with the release of the Definitive Edition on the Nintendo Switch this month. This enhanced version of the game comes with improved graphics and visuals, an arranged soundtrack, as well as new story content with the Future Connected epilogue. Here’s how to learn new Arts in Xenoblade Chronicles.
Learning New Arts in Xenoblade Chronicles
When you first get started in the game, each character in your party will only have set number of Arts that they can use in combat. However, as you level up, you’ll learn even more.
Essentially, Arts are tied to your character level and you’ll automatically learn more of them as you keep playing the game and keep leveling up. In addition to that, it’s also possible to buy skill books from shops or find them in chests to learn new ones and level up existing ones. High level books can be found later in the game when you start facing off against tougher enemies.
Whenever you come across a merchant in the game, be sure to talk to them and check if they have any skill books for sale. These usually cost a few thousand G, but they’re definitely worth it for expanding your characters’ repertoires. To actually learn them, bring up your menu with the X button and choose the Arts option and your characters will automatically learn any new skills you have from books.
These skill books can also help to level up existing Arts; most Arts have an AP cap where you can only strengthen them to a certain level, and you’ll need a skill book to increase the cap and keep going.
That’s all you need to know about how to level up Arts in Xenoblade Chronicles. Be sure to search for Twinfinite for more tips and information on the game.
