Puzzles are the main items that generate warriors’ power in Metarrior's fights. They come in five different colors, each of them respectively represents one element of earth that powers the warrior in the battles:
Each warrior in a fight is assigned a puzzle that coincides with the element on the puzzle board. The warrior can attack when successfully solving a set of 3 or more matching puzzles in a row to clear them and channel them into mana. There are special puzzles, which are created by forming special configurations. Each one has its unique amplified effect.
Combo 3: 3 puzzles of the same color in a horizontal or vertical row.
Combo 4: Matching 4 puzzles of the same color in a horizontal or vertical row will create a special puzzle called BOMB. BOMB can be activated separately and as it explores, it will explode the surrounding 8 puzzles with an explosion size of 3X3.
Combo 5: Matching 5 puzzles of the same color in a row horizontally, vertically, T shape and L shape (with at least 2 puzzles on each side) will create a special puzzle called SET. SET can be activated individually and as it explodes, it will clear all puzzles of that color from the board.
Aside from channeling power to warriors and creating special puzzles, mana from every 1 puzzle solved can also be added to the Warrior, the Sage and the skills of the warrior.
If there is a warrior with the same puzzle system: Each matching puzzle will add 10 mana to the warrior. If the number of puzzles solved is greater than 5, then each matching puzzle will add 8 mana to the Sage. If there is no warrior with the same puzzle system: Each matching puzzle will add 5 mana to each Sage's skill. Each matching puzzle will add 12 mana to the Sage.
After creating a set of matching puzzles, warriors can buildup the energy bar and activate their ultimate skill once the bar is full.
