The points about the combat were discussed in previous information drops, such as Bond Arts, Memory Links, Dramatic Scene, and Affinities. However, camping has now been revealed, where the party can have a ‘party.’ Performing this action will increase the experience earned for the following ten battles.
Sanji can cook at these spots too, providing dishes that restore health and buff the party. One stated example is a Bronze Bat Soup that heals “all allies and also [grants] a 10% bonus to DEF and GUTS.” Further, succeeding at the challenges brought on by Dramatic Scenes will give materials used for cooking, crafting Trick Balls, and enhancing equipment.
Usopp is the member who will create Trick Balls, tools used for buffing the party or debuffing foes to considerable extents. Utilizing this collective of items is highly recommended for boss battles.
It’s also explained that each member of the Straw Hat crew has a grid that can be filled with cubes enhancing their combative prowess. In essence, said cubes will be instilled with stats and abilities. Then, in the later stages of the game, Robin can craft equipment together to amplify their efficacy.
