Reyn AnchorChain

Anchor Chain is one of Reyn's auras in Xenoblade Chronicles. It grants immunity to Knock-Back, Blow-Down and Aggro-down by damage received from enemies until the aura wears off. Aggro is also gradually added to active enemies.

Miscellaneous Info

  • The aggro generated is the same type of aggro from damage or healing, so it will not be lost over time. However, when the aura is not active, the aggro generated will be lost by taking damage from enemies.
  • AI Reyn will use this art when there are multiple enemies present in the battle field or when the leader commands the party to focus on attacks.
  • This art has AI issues; AI Reyn does not recognize that he has other auras active prior to activating Anchor Chain.
