Chrono Trigger Techs

Introduction by  footbigmike
Former Staff Writer

Chrono Trigger's technique system is a very innovative feature of the game. It consists of a standard of each character having 8 abilities, most of which are unique and based somewhat upon the character's elemental affinity. However, the system also features the ability to combine the abilities of two or three characters and have a more powerful attack at hand. These techs are not all offensive, however. You will need as many healing and support spells as you will offensive attacks, so don't even think about leaving out a healer as you select parties. Here, you will find detailed data for all techniques in the game - including a few secret ones.
