The combat of Octopath Traveler follows the turn-based style with characters able to use weapons, elemental attacks, skills, and items. Each turn awards the character with a boost point which can be spent on enhancing a command, allowing the character to attack again or raise the effect of an ability. Enemies are equipped with a shield counter, which depletes of the player attack with an element they are weak against. When the shield is fully depleted, the enemies become stunned and take more damage, making winning easier.
