Tales of Arise: How to Dodge Attacks
As dodging attacks is a new mechanic in this series, most of the players don’t know how to do this. To dodge an attack, you simply need to press the R2 button on your PlayStation, or the RT button on an Xbox. This will make your character roll dodge any incoming attack.
To better understand this mechanic, you can use your left stick to make your character dodge roll in the respected direction.
This is an essential mechanic to keep in mind and will help you a lot in the game, and you will be more flexible in combat.
You should also know that if you dodge roll exactly before getting hit, your character will slow down the time for a very short period. This represents to you an opening for a counterattack and deal massive damage to your enemy.
This mechanic is called the “Perfect Dodge”, and your character will be highlighted in blue if you pull this off.
