Conditional Techs Overview

SaGa: Emerald Beyond (SaGa: EB) - Conditional Techs Overview

The Conditional Techs, also called Conditionals, are special techniques that activate when their conditions are met during battle.

Interrupt, Counterattack, Procect, Chain, and Pursuit are the five types of Conditional Techs.

About Conditional Tech State and Cancelling

SaGa: Emerald Beyond (SaGa: EB) - Conditional Techs State and Cancelling

"???" denotes the condition under which an enemy is capable of using Conditional Techs that appear on the timeline.

Using techs with the "Quell" effect allows you to cancel conditional techs.

Watch out for the "???" on the timeline, and try to cancel Conditional Techs every time it appears.

Conditional Techs Types

About Interrupt

SaGa: Emerald Beyond (SaGa: EB) - Conditional Tech Interrupt

The Interrupt enables the user to stop the enemy in their tracks before they can act.

Attack attributes such as Slash, Strike, or Thrust are the only circumstances in which Interrupt Conditional Techs will activate.

About Counterattack

SaGa: Emerald Beyond (SaGa: EB) - Conditional Tech Counterattack

The Counterattack neutralizes attacks and sets off a counterattack on the enemy.

Although Counterattack Conditional Techs are incredibly powerful, there is no assurance that they will occur and may fail some times.

Note that regardless of whether the incoming attacks hit every target or have a Quell effect, the Counterattack might not trigger at all.

About Protect

SaGa: Emerald Beyond (SaGa: EB) - Conditional Tech Protect

Using Protect, a user can replace any ally that is being attacked.

Damage taken will be less when Protect Conditional Techs are used.


A special type of Protect Conditional Tech that can shield the user from any damage is called "Parry". The incoming attack will be entirely neutralized if the Parry is activated.

About Chain

SaGa: Emerald Beyond (SaGa: EB) - Conditional Tech Chain

Chain lets the user perform a follow-up on an ally's action.

A coordinated attack will take place once the unity range on the timeline is connected. This is because the character who activates Chain will react following an attack by an ally.

However, the coordinated attack will immediately come to an end if the timeline's unity range gets broken or interrupted.

About Pursuit

SaGa: Emerald Beyond (SaGa: EB) - Conditional Tech Pursuit

Once an enemy initiates an action, the Pursuit will be activated.

In battle, the Pursuit Conditional Tech can be used to sabotage or restrict the unity of your enemies.
