Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines will start you out with eight basic classes, meaning there will likely be some pretty neat advanced classes later on. Classes such as Monk and Cannoneer are pretty different, and they’ll all have their own unique abilities. Famitsu shows examples of two main types of offensive abilities.
The “Jutsu,” or spells, are helpful actions that can be acquired by obtaining scrolls through battle rewards in the dungeons. In order for a character to learn them, they’ll need to meet certain conditions before using the scroll.
These spells come in different types such as offensive, healing, and support, and will consume your character’s ability points upon use.
Next up, we have the “Ougi,” or skill. Each class has multiple skills, but they also have to meet certain conditions before being able to use them. While they pack a punch as far as offensive capabilities go, they can be a double-edged sword, as they take away from the character’s health upon use.
For this reason, players might need to strategize and maybe use these skills only if they’re confident that they’ll be fine, or as a last resort move.
As we all know, the characters of your family in Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines will only have a lifespan of two years due to being cursed from Abeno Seimei. So you might be wondering what happens to all the effort you put into learning the skills (Ougi) of your classes.
Once a character dies, well unfortunately, so do their skills. However, if that character has an offspring, you’ll be able to train him or her and have them inherit their parent’s skills. The child will have to be of the same class as the parent, and will also have to meet the same conditions for being able to use the skill, as their parent did before them.
