Thanks for showing some interest, guys.

The Sync Bar replaces the PP system and, in the most basic sense, works somewhat like the ATB meter of some Final Fantasy games.

Unlike the FF ATB system though, you don't have to wait for the meter to completely fill to be able to do anything. You can execute an action at any time you feel like, so long as you have the amount of sync required to perform the specific action you wish to perform. And different actions will have different sync costs, naturally.

Also unlike the FF ATB system, the sync ratio is persistent outside of battle and continues to increase as you walk around (albeit more slowly than in battle). But there will be certain potentially severe risks associated with letting the sync ratio get too high or too low, so you need to keep it in check.
