Abilities are part of an important game mechanic exclusive to the 2020 remake of Trials of Mana.
Whenever a player character levels up, training points or TP are allocated to it and can be used to gain moves or abilities that grant various upgrades and perks upon being equipped. Abilities comes in 5 different stat attributes :
Abilities' function depend on which stat they are assigned. For example, strength abilities typically enhance a player character's attack statistic and melee attacks in general.
Abilities also come in two different categories : individual and chain abilities. Individual ones can only be equipped by the same character who has learned it in the first place. Chain abilities aren't restricted by this rule and therefore can be equipped by everyone in the party. they can be distinguished from normal abilities by their little icon on their lower left corner. Contrary to individual ones, chain abilities can also be learned outside the training menu section by non-player characters or even by completing the game. Note that even when chained, only one player character can equip an ability.
The number of abilities one player character can equip is tied to its class tier :
- 2 for default classes or class 1
- 4 for class 2
- 6 for class 3
- 8 for class 4
Most abilities effects can be stacked on one another unless specified by saying they cannot or has a maximum limit. For example, Winning Heal and Alleviate both recover a certain percentage (7% and 3% respectively) of HP for all allies after winning a battle for a grand total of 10% if both equipped.
