New characters revealed for Octopath Traveler
The trailer also explains Path Actions in general a bit more. Path Actions are split into two general categories: “Noble” and “Rogue”. Generally, a set of two Path Actions have the same end result – for example, acquiring items from people. The merchant Tessa can use her Field Command to buy them, whereas the thief Therion can steal them. The Noble path of buying them always succeeds, but requires you to spend money. The Rogue path of stealing is free, obviously, but has a chance of failure. Getting caught while stealing lowers your standing with other characters, which can result in them not wanting to talk to you and thus you being unable to accept certain quests. This can be fixed by talking to innkeepers and giving them money to increase your standing again.
