Gameplay Strategy Tips
Before you can jump into a site, you can tap on the Enemies tab to know what you're going up against. The tutorial goes over this briefly, but this information is invaluable when deciding which heroes to bring. The first and most obvious thing you should note are enemy elemental weaknesses. When using elemental BRV attacks against an enemy's weakness, you'll deal dramatically increased damage making BRV breaks much easier. The second thing you should keep in mind are enemy abilities. Some enemies don't just attack you but will sometimes employ special abilities. Beware of enemies that inflict status ailments and use buffs on themselves! If you have heroes with abilities that counteract enemy abilities, be sure to bring them along.
Each battle has three optional missions that you can complete. One of them will usually require you not to let any of your heroes be KO'd, and another one will make you clear the battle within a certain number of turns. The last mission can vary, but the one you'll see the most will ask you to inflict a certain number of BRV breaks. Clearing a mission will reward you with some goodies, usually gems. You can also get upgrade materials, so it's worth it to do all the missions for each battle.
You're scored during battle, and each battle has a certain Target Score to reach. If you hit the Target Score, you'll be rewarded with goodies, again usually gems. Score is calculated from three different factors, and the first one is turns. Try to complete battles as fast and efficient as possible. You'll most likely fulfill the mission requirement as well while trying to do this. The second factor is HP damage taken. If you're noticing that you're taking HP damage in a lot of battles, try bringing a hero with a healing ability. HP damage that is recovered from abilities doesn't affect your score, so keep that in mind. The third and final factor is BRV breaks taken. Try not to let any of your heroes get BRV broken. Pay attention to the turn order and be sure not to HP attack with heroes that are about to be targeted. As long as you're paying attention to the turn order and who is going to be attacked next, you should be able to avoid BRV breaks for the most part.
When a piece of gear is limit broken, its base stats and level cap will increase, making it more powerful. If you can manage to limit break the same piece of gear three times, you'll unlock its passive ability, but the best part is that it separates from the gear and can be equipped by heroes. You should try to limit break your gear as much as possible, but be wary of doing it early on. Limit breaking gear costs a bit of gil, so watch your pockets before you commit to a limit break. Additionally, once your gear library starts to expand, you don't have to limit break low rarity gear. Instead, just opt for the higher rarity gear with better base stats.
After clearing the first area, you'll gain access to the World of Illusions. This is a special area where you can take on powerful enemies in return for rare items. The materials you need to strengthen your summons can be found in here, so be sure to check it out once your party is strong enough.
More Gameplay Tips
- Tip 1: In battle, your main types of attacks are BRV attacks and HP attacks, which drain either the bravery or HP from your enemies, respectively. Brave attacks set up HP attacks, not only stealing bravery from enemies, but boosting that of your own party so that you can execute stronger attacks when you do choose the HP attack.
- Tip 2: You have different goals to accomplish in each battle, such as winning within a short number of moves. To keep the battles short, move bravery attacks from one enemy to the other until you either break or almost break all of them and your own bravery is heavily charged. Then unleash the HP attacks all in a row to make short work of the enemy. This will protect you from taking much damage against enemies, as well.
- Tip 3: Your favorite equipment can be upgraded by either sacrificing different equipment or sacrificing orbs and other items that are in the game specifically to be used for upgrades. Save the upgrades for your rare equipment, that which is three-stars or above. Sacrifice more common equipment, or if you have identical equipment, sacrifice one to upgrade the other to limit-break that piece of equipment, which increases the level cap.
- Tip 4: Complete quests, missions, and other events, as well as the tutorial to load up on the gems. Then go to the store and do a 10x draw for your best chance at loading up on five-star equipment. You can pick from various event draws, campaign draws, and the all-star draw, so if you have a preferred character or characters, look for them on the draw's cover picture to get a good shot at finding 4- and 5- star equipment for that specific character or characters.
- Tip 5: Once you clear a chapter, go back to it and play again as needed. Sometimes you'll want to play the hard-mode versions of each level for extra rewards, or sometimes you just need to go back to the ordinary versions of a battle that you've already beaten in order to grind for levels, which is the cheapest and easiest way of boosting all of your stats, true to Final Fantasy form.
