* ADayInTheLimelight: Many of the legacy characters were minor or static characters in ''Videogame/TheReconstruction''. [[spoiler:Alito]] and [[spoiler:Yfus]] are particularly notable examples.



* AwesomeYetPractical: Valitazzo's SignatureMove, Horrible Night. It's one of the most powerful spells in the game, and it's an area-of-effect attack on top of that. It's costly, but only on par with other high-level spells, and Valitazzo has a special trait that makes spell costs less of an issue in the first place. [[DiscOneNuke You start with it, too]].

* NotActuallyCosmeticAward: Similarly to ''Videogame/IMissTheSunrise'', there are accomplishments you can achieve. Also similarly to ''Videogame/IMissTheSunrise'', they provide some actual benefit -- every one increases the starting favor of future characters by a small amount.
** Also, the "Mark of the [[spoiler:Tezkhra]]" item. Players of ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' would probably think it's a CosmeticAward that's just proof you beat the BonusBoss...but in actuality, it's a potent RareCandy.

** In particular is [[spoiler:Fake Tezkhra]], which is particularly strong, but even rarer than normal. It even drops a trophy item that sounds like a CosmeticAward that's just proof of defeating it (it's actually [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotCosmetic not]]).

* CastFromHitPoints: As is a staple for the series. This aspect is played up to add some more risk -- magic is much more costly than it was in ''TheReconstruction'', and you're on your own. If you're not careful, you can easily leave yourself a sitting duck by depleting your health pools.

There are eight playable characters (as well as six {{Secret Character}}s unlocked by beating the game with the others), each with their own subplot and reasons for delving the Drop. Four are returning characters from ''The Reconstruction'', four are newcomers.

* '''Dehl''', with '''Xopi Sikohlon''' in tow, journeys to the Drop in the hopes that the wish-granting dragon can restore Xopi's sight.



* ArtificialStupidity: Allies will gleefully [[SuicidalOverconfidence throw themselves under the bus]] if an enemy becomes aggressive. This is particularly annoying with Xopi, [[EscortMission who has to be kept alive]] [[GameplayAndStorySegregation and, being blind, shouldn't be able to see enemies anyway]].
* AuraVision: [[spoiler:Xopi]] is granted this by the Tatzylvurm in their ending.



* BossArenaIdiocy: The FinalBoss' arena is filled with pools of acid and putrid water, which you can throw at them for free damage. This damage is also, conviently, NonElemental, allowing you to ignore their [[BarrierChangeBoss gimmick]].

* BossArenaIdiocy: The Prior to version 1.32, the FinalBoss' arena is was filled with pools of acid and putrid water, which you can throw could be thrown at them for free damage. This damage is also, conviently, NonElemental, allowing you making it possible to ignore their [[BarrierChangeBoss gimmick]].gimmick]]. Version 1.32 averts this by removing all environmental effects from the arena, making the fight more difficult.



* EscortMission: Dehl's gameplay gimmick is this. Xopi is frail (his stats are half Dehl's), and if he falls, Dehl does too.



* NeverTrustATrailer: In the trailer, Lani claims to be a GlorySeeker who just wants the Drop's treasure for herself. This is not the case in the game itself. It's possible that this was just a last-minute change, though.



* RealityWarper: The Tatzylvurm implies himself to be this in Dehl and Xopi's ending, though being pummeled in [[Videogame/TheReconstruction the previous game]] has [[HoldingBackThePhlebotinum left him mostly powerless]].



* SignatureMove: Militia Strike for Asarik, Horrible Night for Valitazzo, Perplexing Grin for [[spoiler:Rehm]], and [[spoiler:God's Gift]] for [[spoiler:Fake Tezkhra]]. [[spoiler:Tezkhra]] has ''two'' signature moves, both of which are carryovers from Videogame/TheReconstruction: [[spoiler:Stardraw]] and [[spoiler:Blinding Bloom]].

** Dehl doesn't even pay lip service to this anymore; he can brutally murder anyone he pleases with no repercussions.



** It is possible to attack Xopi if you're playing as Dehl.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The developer has said that they briefly toyed with the idea of making Xopi a playable character. They would have been a JokeCharacter with terrible stats and permanent blindness.
** The developer also raised the idea of alternate means of identifying items in one blog post, including giving an ''actual'' FingertipDrugAnalysis option. Unfortunately, they were too difficult to implement.

* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:Tezkhra]] experiences this as he descends deeper and deeper into the Drop, eventually culminating in [[spoiler:the Blue One surfacing and speaking directly]].
