What are Combo Moves in Sea of Stars?
Combo moves are special attacks and abilities players can use during combat and can deal big damage or provide support for your party.
To use them, you need to build up Combo Points, which is done while engaging in combat, landing timed blocks and attacks, and using Live Mana. Players can only have three Combo Points at a time, and they do not carry across to other fights, so it is worth using them if and when you have them.
In order to learn new combo moves, you’ll need to solve puzzles, meet new party members, and do some exploring.

What Are Ultimate Moves in Sea of Stars?
Ultimate Moves are special attacks that deal a massive amount of damage to every enemy on the screen and can be used when players have filled the Ultimate Move meter. This is signified by the rainbow border around the Combo Point icon in the bottom left of the screen during combat and is filled as you perform Combo Moves and Skills. Like Combo Points, this does not carry over from battle to battle.
There are five Ultimate Moves in total and they are listed below.
|Solen’s Light: Salvation||Zale files into the air and launches a giant fireball into enemies, dealing Solar damage.||Unlocked after Garl’s funeral.|

|Sleeper’s Fury||Garl summons the Sleeper Dragon and rides on the head, with the dragon breathing a massive fiery blast onto tall enemies||Available when Garl rejoins your party during the true ending.|
Every character has one Ultimate Move, and unlike some Combo Moves, these are given to the player at set points during the game’s story, so you do not need to do anything to unlock them other than play the game.
