Knowing all Afflatus types and how they affect the weaknesses and resistances of each character is crucial in Reverse: 1999.
Afflatus determines an Arcanist’s elemental class. Each character is tied to one of the existing Afflatus of the game. This is a characteristic that adds the strategic layer needed to make turn-based RPGs more exciting. Although things might get complex as you learn the game, we’re here to help!
How Afflatus Works in Reverse: 1999
There are six different types of Afflatus, each with its own unique weaknesses.
|Afflatus||Deals 30% More Damage To||Takes 30% More Damage From|
Although Afflatus types do not provide resistance to damage, they can be the weakness of an enemy. This creates the following circle: Beast > Plant > Star > Mineral > Beast. Note that Spirit and Intellect are out of that circle. They work differently and deal 30% extra damage to one another.
Since Reverse: 1999 uses card game mechanics, it’s important to note that Incantation Cards also come in one of the six Afflatus mentioned above. This is a strategic element that you must consider when deciding which enemy to take down and which Afflatus to use based on theirs. All of the combat mechanics in Reverse: 1999 are interconnected. You can’t simply choose a card without considering factors like Afflatus, damage type, Moxie, and more. This is what adds depth and makes the combat fun in this game.
