Xenochrome foreign foreign of Fontmer
At the first stage we have to capture the xenochrome aliens of Fontmere – special blue creatures that live in the underwater world of Fontaine. Thanks to them, you can gain abilities and use them in battle. There are three types in the gamesuch creatures: razorback, plump and armored crab.
