[Weekly News Bits] The One with VMAX
So mostly about Narukami.
Q. A “Steam Maiden, Melem” is granted an On-Hit ability by “Causality Dragon”, in that case, “Melem” gains 4000 Power due to its own Auto ability.
Melem’s attack hits the Vanguard, so can you Call a Grade 0 with Melem’s ability and then Time Leap that Grade 0 with the ability granted by Causality Dragon?
A. No you cannot.
The reason is because the Battle Phase is broken down into the following 6 Steps:
- Start Step
- Attack Step
- Guard Step
- Drive Step
- Damage Step <- When an attack hits
- Close Step <- When battle ends
In other words, when an attack hits happens earlier than when an ability that occurs at the end of battle, you must use an ability that works when it hits during an attack before then.
