Mistwalker's new mobile strategy game, Terra Battle 2, puts you in charge of a party of diverse characters of varying utility, from throwaway units who mostly just take up space to more helpful combatants who can hit many enemies on the grid at once.

As many of the freemium fantasy combat mobile titles are doing these days, Terra Battle 2 features different rankings of characters and items, ranging from the lowly B to the coveted SS. Spending energy lets you forge pacts to acquire new characters and equipment, but the actual draw of each "pact" will be randomized.

You might draw the short end of the stick and end up with a bunch of B class stuff you already have, or you could luck out and get a ton of S and SS class equipment and characters. It's a big gamble, especially at the beginning of the game.

But this Terra Battle 2 Re-Rolling Guide will help you come out on top more often than not. 

 Drawing a B class Hermes

Terra Battle 2 Re-Rolling Cheat

You want the biggest advantage possible right out of the gate so you don't end up having to spend any real money on in-game transactions. With that in mind, there is a way to cheat the Terra Battle 2 system by re-rolling randomized character and item draws when you first get started.

If you got primarily A and B class items during a draw, or only get a single S class draw, for instance, you might want to start over and try again -- even though it is a bit of a pain to do.

After the draw, if you didn't quite like what you got, switch over to your mobile device's "Settings" screen, and then choose "Apps" from the list of options. From there, select the "TerraBattle2" entry so you see a list of options for the app.

 Navigating through Android Settings

With the Terra Battle 2 app data showing, tap "Storage," and then choose "Clear Data." Confirm you want to clear everything out by tapping "Delete."

This option clears out all the associated data on your tablet from the app, but doesn't actually delete the app itself, which is what we want to perform the re-roll. In other words: it's starting you over with a clean slate without having to go through the trouble of uninstalling and reinstalling manually.

With that out of the way, now switch back to the Terra Battle 2 app and it will be just like the first time you opened the app (but without having to download any updates). Unfortunately, you do have to go through the tutorial again (just skip the opening cinematic) and start the first level, but you will have all your starting bonuses to energy again.

Don't forget to go to the Achievements screen, because you get extra energy for the sign-in bonus. If you do everything you can to get bonus energy right off the bat, you should have 60 energy stored up, which is enough for two new draws.

This Terra Battle 2 re-rolling process is fairly time-consuming, taking 5-10 minutes, but it's well worth it if you didn't get much in the way of good gear or units with your initial draws.

 Pulling an SS dagger

Much like rolling your stats in classic RPGs like Baldur's Gate, you can spend as much time as you want continuously re-rolling over and over until you get exactly what you want. You do get new gear and guardians over the course of playing the game, however, so don't get lost spending hours on this nonsense!

Hopefully, it only takes a single re-roll for you to get lucky and hit the character jackpot! What's the best thing you've drawn so far in Terra Battle 2, and how many re-rolls did it take? Let us know in the comments section below!

Mistwalker's follow-up to the lauded mobile title Terra Battle, Terra Battle 2, is here, improving on many facets of the previous game and offering more tactical fantasy combat.

Although it seems weird that the developer went from epic multi-disc RPGs like Lost Odyssey to mobile games, I guess that's just the way the industry went, and if you've got an Android or iOS device, you're in for a treat.

But to get started in the game, you'll need to know what's new in Terra Battle 2, from movement to mechanics and more. Let's dive in. 

Terra Battle 2 Movement

This time around, Terra Battle includes an overland map to traverse on your own in all-new storyline chapters. While this is a welcome addition, you may be wondering why you can't get past a certain level even though you've done everything there. The story levels are currently capped, with a new one set to be released each week, so check back every few days for new content!

Now that you're on a map, keep in mind you have a five-second second limit to movement once you tap your group. While heading across the map, you should maneuver to the shiny dots for the treasure, and of course, into enemy configurations to initiate battles.

Keep in mind that you can turn the magnet feature off, and then only one character at a time moves around the map instead of dragging your full party. Why do this? Because battles start based on how the characters are arranged on the level map, so you can start in an advantageous position for quick attacks right away.

This can completely change how a battle goes, so plan ahead instead of rushing straight into combat. If you surround your enemies, you are in a much better position to get in the required (and advantageous) pincer attacks (see below).

Terra Battle 2 Combat Strategy

Before battle begins, hit the blue sword to start the attack, the middle red icon to use a skill like placing bombs, or the green chest to pull up your items. During the actual battle, you have a six-second movement clock once you tap a character, but you've got all the time you want to strategize before you start moving, so plan ahead.

The grid combat works by moving enemies and allies around in a different way than you might expect. Bumping your unit into enemy or ally tiles in combat shifts them to the direction you are moving. Use this forced movement to your advantage to flank an enemy on any adjacent tiles, initiating an attack (called a "pincer").

All of the enemies between a pincer position get hit, and that's where the strategy lies.

 Lining up an attack on an enemy tile

Your goal here is to attack as many enemies as you possibly can at once, maneuvering them all into a line and then placing your troops on either side in any direction. That's why you need to think ahead -- to make sure you can actually get enemies into a line within the six-second cap.

While placing pincers, pay attention to which characters, like Sarah, have mega range abilities. When Sarah is involved in a pincer, she will attack all enemies in a grid around her, and not just the enemies directly between her and the other ally in the pincer.

If you've strategically moved the enemies first, you can potentially hit all enemies at once this way. Different characters have mega range in differing square patterns -- check the menu for each one to see how they should be placed for maximum effectiveness.

Terra Battle 2 Combat Tips

Obviously, you can't make a flanking pincer with only one unit, so if you get whittled down to only one character left during the fight, you lose the battle.

Some enemies (those outlined in purple, like bosses) can't be maneuvered around in this manner, however. For bosses, in particular, pay attention to their movement patterns, as this indicates where they will attack and how many tiles they will hit. They have a very clear repeating pattern, so you can avoid getting hit and maneuver yourself for an attack in the next turn.

Other than that, there are just a couple of things to keep in mind to dominate in any given battle:

  • Pay attention to individual skills: Khem, for instance, adds Mega Heal to an attack, healing an allied character who is also involved in the attack
  • Chain attacks as often as possible, as this raises your stats and helps level your equipment
  • Attacking the same element results in half damage, while attacking the opposite element gives double damage
  • Maneuver enemies into bombs or other obstacles placed with skills beforehand
  • Be on the lookout for power ups for your own squad, such as placing your second character in a pincer next to the glowing blue "P" icon to increase attack power

 Chaining together skills

That's all the basic tactical knowledge you need to get started with Terra Battle 2! Have any other tips for us? Let us know your best strategy, and stay tuned for further guides covering Terra Battle 2 re-rolling and tier lists for the best character combos.
