- Battle Usage
Chain Hooks are mainly used to restrain bosses, but can also be used on mobs to pull them towards you. After being used on a mob, your character will pull the target towards him or herself. Sometimes you may grab the target, allowing you to throw them.
When used on bosses, it can restrain certain parts of the body when you aim it at them. For example, if aimed at the arm, it will either make it harder for them to use their weapon, or prevent them from attacking entirely with their weapon. This does not stop them from attacking entirely, however (ex. Jolly Ebeloch can still sneeze even if his arm is restrained).
If aimed at the leg, it will knock them down, causing them to stay in place and allowing allies to attack without the threat of being hurt. Bosses tend to break out of leg restraints faster than arm restraints and some of the larger bosses require more than one chain hook to restrain them.
As well, Chain Hooks can be used to prevent enemies such as Speedy Ekuloch from escaping.
Prior to a May 2015 update, Evie was unable to use Chain Hooks.
