For the battle, In Tales of Crestoria, players need to set up the party; three main members, one supporter/friend, and 2 sub-members. For each character, you can allocate a memoria stone. Memoria stones have special skills that buff the character stats.
Other than allocating the memoria stone, you can allocate more x9 sub stones. Sub Stones boost the attributes of all the party members.
Before you begin the quest, you should select a meal – the meal will give a specific buff to the party members; like more attack power. You can cook meals with the ingredients that you farm in the story mode stages.

In Tales of Crestoria, characters, and enemies both have an elemental relationship; there are six elements; earth, fire, wind, water, light, and dark. Earth > wind > water > fire > earth. Light <> Dark. That means, Earth element unit will inflict more damage on the wind element unit as Earth > wind, wind element unit will inflict more damage on the water element unit as wind> water. Light and Dark units inflict bonus damage on each other. If you are stuck on a quest, then get the benefit from this mechanism.
