How To Get Barrier Surge In Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep

To get Barrier Surge, you’ll need to meld Barrier with either Stun Edge or Fire Dash. Alternatively, you can just purchase a copy of it from the Command Shop.

One of Aqua’s several exclusive Command Skills, Barrier Surge is a solid Attack Type skill that allows her to deal damage to multiple enemies in a line and reposition herself.

Melding Complete (Barrier Surge With HP Boost)

You can buy all the materials you need to meld Barrier Surge from any Command Shop in the World Map.

Command Shop

For example, you can purchase Barrier for 200 Munny and Stun Edge for 150 Munny in the Command Shop, which would be the cheapest combination of the two.

Command Shop (Barrier Surge)

You can, however, just buy a copy of Barrier Surge once you’ve already unlocked it for 500 Munny.

This will cost you a bit more than if you were to buy the materials and meld them yourself instead, but it does save you the hassle of leveling up those materials!

Best Abilities For Barrier Surge

Menu (Abilities)

The best ability you can get for Barrier Surge is Attack Haste . It will shorten the Command Skill’s Reload Time by a lot at full stack.

This means you’ll be able to spam the skill multiple times during combat, as Barrier Surge already has a low base cooldown.

To get Attack Haste, you’ll need to farm and use Fleeting Crystals  as the Synthesis material when melding certain Command Skills in the Meld Menu.

Barrier Surge In Combat

While not as effective as Aqua’s other exclusive skills such as Magic Hour  when it comes to farming multiple Unversed mobs, it is quite useful in boss fights.

You can use Barrier Surge to close the distance between you and an enemy in an instant. Beware, however, as this skill can be dodged, and you may be vulnerable to an attack right after you miss
