I have gotten a rare blade named Herald. Both her unique field skill, and her key affinity rewards, require her to "Use a Special" a certain amount of times for each unlock. I've gotten into battles where I use blade combos, driver arts, driver combos, and every level of blade art, yet I've only gotten 1 out of 11 progress completed, and I don't know what triggered it. So what exactly does special refer to in this case?

I'm fairly certain you need to use special Blade arts (the one you activate by hitting A). I distinctly remember swapping to herald, hitting for a while and then spamming the special ability.

  • I've just got Herald and I'm training her up and I can confirm this is the case, obviously I believe you need to use Herald's special in battle for it to count. But you can use special's outside of Blade Combo's too, so even if Lightning doesn't fit whatever combo you are doing you can still use it. Jan 15, 2018 at 14:14
