The DioField Chronicle offers a refreshing new take on traditional JRPGs by combining the turn-based strategy with real-time simulation. The player will find less restriction in gameplay, as they can change the direction of their party mid-battle and are not crestricted to the standard grid-based system. This requires a lot of quick thinking and fast action to remain successful.
In The DioField Chronicle, there are four different classes the party members will originate from. One of these classes is the Cavalier. Players must outfit their Cavalier with the best weapons for the class to ensure they are well-prepared for the battlefield. Depending on the specific Cavalier, they can use Claws or Lances for their weapon choice. As the game progresses, players will have access to newer and better weapons. Here’s a look at the best options at all stages of gameplay.
