The party setup in Torna ~ The Golden Country is similar to that of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 functionally, but with several important differences. The party consists of three teams, each consisting of one Driver and two Blades:

Story circumstances may mean that not every member of every team (or possibly that not every team) are available. Besides these circumstances, all three full teams are typically in the party at once, and all may participate in combat.

Active Blade[edit]

Only one of the two Blades may be active (visible on the field) at once. Which one this is can be switched at any time using a Blade Switch: in the overworld (including in combat) this is done using D-pad left, whereas in the character menu it is done with R. Switching Blades in combat has a cooldown of around 10 seconds.

Vanguard and Rear Guard[edit]

Either the active Blade or the Driver takes the position of the Vanguard (equivalent to the Driver in the main game), with the other taking the position of Rear Guard (equivalent to the Blade in the main game). Characters in the Vanguard use Vanguard Arts (the equivalent of Driver Arts), whereas those in the Rear Guard use Rear Guard Arts (the equivalent of Blade Arts). The character in the Vanguard can be switched using a Vanguard Switch, done using D-pad up (or Y in the character menu). Similarly to Blade Switching, this has a cooldown when done in combat; this cooldown is independent of that for the Blade Switch.

During a Vanguard Switch, the character being switched into the Vanguard performs a Switch Art unique to that character. These are attacks which deal damage and inflict a stage of the Driver Combo.

Unlike in the main game, Specials are performed by the character in the Vanguard.
