Before we get into Wuthering Waves' combat segment, we must talk about the Resonators.

Resonators are characters in Wuthering Waves whom you will befriend in your journey and who can join your party if you have obtained them. Each Resonator has a different weapon type and attribute that can help them counter specific foes.

All Resonator Attributes

  • Fusion: the ability to apply heat and ignite.
  • Glacio: the ability to cool down and freeze.
  • Aero: the ability to manipulate airflow.
  • Electro: the ability to displace charges.
  • Spectro: the ability to bind photons.
  • Havoc: the ability to annihilate matter.

All weapon types

  • Sword
  • Broadsword
  • Gun
  • Rectifier
  • Gauntlets

Now, let us get into the base of the combat. Kuro Games is known for creating challenging boss fights and battle loops that complement the flashy animation of each character well.

Here are a few combat terms in the title that you should know about:

  • Forte Circuit: This is the bar on top of your HP meter that will charge up during combat.
  • Resonance Skill: Your basic skill that you can unleash every few seconds. Again, each resonator has different and unique skills.
  • Resonance Liberation: This is your ultimate ability, which is also unique for each party member. Some can heal, and others can deal damage.
  • Forte: This is your skill tree system, which you will need to level up and make your Resonators powerful.

There are also Intro and Outro skills that a character can perform when taking the field. You can swap them out.

Some elite enemies will have a toughness bar that you can break by either using certain weapon types or skills or by countering and parrying their attack. Once you have depleted their toughness bar, they will be stunned for a while. This is when you can unleash your full force to quickly take down their HP.
