Description Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1). If foe's Range = 2, calculates damage using the lower of foe's Def or Res. If foe initiates combat or if foe's HP = 100% at start of combat, grants Atk/Spd/Def/Res+5 to unit and grants unit Special cooldown charge +1 per unit's attack. (Only highest value applied. Does not stack.)


  • The stat increase that can be applied by Primordial Breath is considered a combat boost.
  • Only attacks performed by the user have the Special cooldown charge +X effect. This is true regardless of who initiated combat.
  • If the user has a "Special cooldown charge +X" effect and a foe has a "Special cooldown charge -X" effect, the effects will stack.
    • For example, if a unit with Icon Class Red Sword.png Guard Sword+ battles an foe with Heavy Blade 3.png Heavy Blade 3 active:
      • The effects will only stack when the user attacks and the cooldown will go down without penalty or bonus.
      • The "Special cooldown charge -X" effect will only take place when the foe attacks.
  • If used alongside a skill that also grants "Special cooldown charge +X", only the higher of the two charge increases will apply.
    • This means that if a unit has "Special cooldown charge +1" and "Special cooldown charge +1" from two different skills, the battle will play out as if only one "Special cooldown charge +1" is active.
  • Skills such as Icon Class Red Sword.png Creator Sword and Icon Class Red Sword.png Spendy Scimitar will neutralize any effects that grant "Special cooldown charge +X" to the foe or inflict "Special cooldown charge -X" on its user.
