General[edit | edit source]

Reroll[edit | edit source]

See also: Unit List, Unit Rankings, How to reroll

If you are just starting out, decide whether you want to reroll for good units or not. Rerolling is the process of resetting the game over and over in hope of getting good or favorite units from the limited summons you get early in game. While it's not necessary to enjoy most of the game with random units, you may get more enjoyment from doing harder content with stronger units, or maybe you just want to steamroll your enemies. See how to reroll.

When you are rerolling, ignore their rarity and look at the unit itself. They can be awakened to higher rarity in a relatively short time. Awakened unit and pulled unit of same rarity have no difference. Check unit list and unit rankings for comprehensive lists.

Priority[edit | edit source]

  • Open the entire world by finishing the story and quests.
  • Level up and awaken your units.
  • Level up your rank.
  • Do Colosseum or Arena as much as possible.
  • Obtain and level up your Espers.

Energy[edit | edit source]

Your energy will fully recover once you rank up. Daily quests reward you with both energy and exp, and this energy can overflow above your maximum energy. However, if you rank up while getting the reward, it'll reset to your current maximum, wasting the energy reward. So, don't rank up from daily quests and always use up all energy before leveling up to the next rank.

Daily Quests[edit | edit source]

Available each day are five rotated quests plus one that requires completing 5 other quests for Lapis50. The latter is one of the most consistent sources of free-to-play Lapis in the game.

You may check your daily quests status from the "Quest Report" on the home menu, and then click on "Daily Quests". You must claim rewards before the quests refresh (timer on top right corner of daily quest tab). An additional unique quest may be available during events which generally provides Lapis5. Non-event quests are listed below:

Free Lapis[edit | edit source]

  • When you get a pop-up asking you to give a rating and review to the game, click them to get Lapis100. You don't have to actually rate them to get it. It'll be sent to your inbox. While the pop-up might reappear, you can only get your reward once.
  • Daily Login Rewards earn Lapis50 or Lapis100 a few times a month. You can check the daily rewards schedule from the home screen.
  • You will get Lapis100 once you rank up.
  • Finishing daily quests every day earn Lapis50. Event and the Colosseum quests earn Lapis5 each.
  • Participating 5 Arena matches daily will reward you Lapis40, whether you win or lose.
  • Finishing a dungeon in the story mode will reward you Lapis100.
  • Missions from a dungeon will give up to Lapis50.
  • Attaining Gold status for a Trophy will earn Lapis500.

Lapis Usage[edit | edit source]

  • Whether you plan to reroll or not, you should at least pull a couple summons with Lapis. Aside from the few main characters, Lapis summoned units have big advantages over free units. It helps you fill the party with decent units to start with; if you are lucky, you might get a top tier unit right away.
  • Aside from initial pulls, you shouldn't pull until there are rate boost event for good units.
  • If you are free-to-play, try to make sure you have enough Lapis for the half-price summon (for Lapis250) everyday. Note that you are generally better off doing 20 summons at the discounted rate than saving up for a 10+1 pull at Lapis5,000.
  • Sooner or later your material slots need to be upgraded too. You can sell for excess materials, but keep at least 1 stack each before selling them off, and if it's still full, upgrade them.
  • The rest of them; units, crafting, item, equipment, or abilities slots are in no immediate need to be upgraded.

Friend Points[edit | edit source]

Immediately after having access to friend list, change your friend gift preference to friend points. You can send gifts to all of your friend list, and they will also send you gifts according to your preference. Friend gifting is completely free and can be done every day. Add as many friends as you can, choose them from Friends > Add Friend.

Friend points are used to summon standard/free units. While they may be weaker than Lapis summoned units, some of them are good for various purposes. To get their Trust Master Reward you will have to fuse them up to 20 times, each one giving them 5% trust (meaning you will have to pull a unit a total of 21 times).

Sprite Name Notes
Anastasis Anastasis Can use Cura. Should last until you get one of the main characters, Fina, as a healer replacement.
Paul Paul Can use Steal. Stronger than Eldin, another free unit with Steal.
Biggs Biggs Can use Bio Blaster to poison.
Rizer Rizer Can use Blade Bash to paralyze. Trust: HP +10%.
King Giott King Giott Trust: Stone Killer. Boost damage against stone monsters by 50%.
Skaha Skaha Trust: Dragon Killer. Boost damage against dragons by 50%.
Ollie Ollie Trust: Aquan Killer. Boost damage against aquans by 50%.
Montana Montana Trust: Camouflage. Reduce chance of being targeted by 50%.
Kenyu Kenyu Trust: Raging Fist. Physical damage. 120% Skill modifier, ignores 25% DEF.
Carrie Carrie Trust: Sunbeam. AoE Magic Damage. 120% Skill modifier, 30% Blind.

Easy Money[edit | edit source]

Money isn't too important early on in this game. Not important enough to unlock Gil vortex for an entire day. If you need a chump change, do a standard summon with friend points, max out their level, and sell them off.

Rarity Value
1-star1 Star Rarity Gil4,400
2-star2 Star Rarity Gil15,000
3-star3 Star Rarity Gil32,000

Hidden Items & Quests[edit | edit source]

See also: Towns & Quests, Explorations

Whenever you are exploring a new town or an exploration dungeon, check towns and explorations pages to obtain all of their hidden items and quests. While it might be fun to discover them yourselves, it's very difficult to keep track of them, and some of them are really hard to find. Many quests require you to defeat monsters in subsequent dungeon, saving you energy by obtaining all quests beforehand.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Vortex of Desires[edit | edit source]

Main article: Vortex of Desires

You will unlock the Vortex very early in the story. It can be accessed from the home menu. Vortex of Desires is a special dungeon with multiple chambers. One chamber can be unlocked for free per day, while the rest can be opened with Lapis100 each. It's generally not a good idea to use your Lapis for these unlocks.

When you unlock one or more vortex, it will show the timer to indicate when will the vortex be locked. The timer itself didn't start when you unlock it. Instead, every Vortex will be locked at 00:00 PST.

  • Chamber of Creation: Drops crafting materials. Not recommended. It’s better to head to the material list, find the one you need and look for the monsters that drop it.
  • Chamber of Awakening: Drops awakening materials used to increase the rarity of the units. If you are looking for Sacred Crystal then INT is your best bet, while Holy Crystal drops more on ADV. Otherwise use the material list to find specific material drops.
  • Chamber of Experience: Gives large unit experience. The amount of experience is generally much larger than the one found in the story dungeons. Recommended to use for leveling your unit.
  • Chamber of Riches: Gives you gil. Highly not recommended, use the easy money trick above instead.

Status Ailments[edit | edit source]

Main article: Status Ailments

Many bosses can be cheesed by using status ailments. The notable status ailments are paralyze, sleep, and poison. Paralyze and sleep will stop any enemy's action for 2-3 turns, but any physical damage will wake up slept monster. Poison deals 10% HP damage per turn and combined with stopping effects, can deal significant damage to difficult bosses with a lot of HP.

Enemy builds up resistance to status ailments after each application. This doesn't show up in their resistance table when checked with Libra or Analyze.

Friend List[edit | edit source]

Your friend list from the game can store 30 peoples by default. Your facebook friends have the different list with friend list from the game. You can see your facebook friends unit in Friends > Facebook Invite.

If you are trying to use a certain friend unit but it doesn't appear on the list, you can restart the game to reset the list. Friends who have been used do not show up again for about 3 hours.

Maximize Efficiency[edit | edit source]

  • Use Steal whenever possible. Especially against monsters in the Colosseum and bosses.
  • Use Libra or Analyze on all monsters. It adds the full description of monsters in their library at Menu > Guide > Monsters. If you are obsessive enough you might want to complete them all.
  • Use limit bursts, and esper summon whenever you can. See the Hero's Ring section below.

Hero's Ring[edit | edit source]

See also: Trophies, Trophy Guide

Hero's Ring is an accessory that increases your ATK and MAG by +10%, which is going to be useful for a very long time. It's one of the most widely used accessory in the game. It can be crafted using a recipe rewarded from completing 30 trophies, but it takes 72 hours to craft. Most of these trophies can be completed through normal play in just over 2 weeks, as long as you keep in mind some of the requirements, while some you have to grind for.

Recommended Trophies to Grind[edit | edit source]

Type Name Tier Description Notes
Achievements Awakening Adept 2 Awarded for 30 units awoken. Awakening up to twenty 1-star1 Star Rarity from standard summon shouldn't be difficult. They are very easy to cap and awaken. It takes about 4000 exp to cap 1-star1 Star Rarity from the scratch. Chamber of Experience - ADV gives about 30000 exp, and should be able to cap all 5 of them in a single battle. Use a strong friend unit that can solo the entire dungeon, like Exdeath, Terra, Firion, or Leo.
Achievements Quest Champion 2 Awarded for 40 quests completed. The total quests you can do with just access to Grandshelt Isles are 25 quests. Since the material needed to create Hero's Ring come from Lanzelt, doing their quests should be more than enough to fulfill this trophy.
Achievements Peerless Chemist 2 Awarded for 100 items created. You can spam craft either Potion to achieve this. It's cheap, and only takes 1 minute to craft. These potions will also be useful to complete item whiz trophy below.
Quest Item Whiz 1 Awarded for 100 items used. If you do choose the peerless chemist trophy to achieve then you should be able to clear this one easy. You have a limit on a number of items to bring per dungeon though, so you will need multiple runs.
Quest Crushing Conqueror 3 Awarded for 300000 damage dealt in a single turn. The boss of Earth Shrine - Exploration is very weak to magic. A capped mage should be able to deal 200-300k damage with a limit burst. Bring an excellent mage friend and you'll clear this one easy.
Quest Supreme Evoker 1 Awarded for 100 espers summoned. Two weeks of normal play will net you about 50 summons. Fastest way to get your summons up is by doing explorations and exhausting all random battles available. If you have Rydia, her limit burst makes this easy.
Quest Ability Master 3 Awarded for 10000 abilities used. If you have way too much time on your hand, and you have units with Chakra you can spam it forever in a single battle. It recovers your HP/MP back and you simply need to click repeat.
Quest Limit Breaker 2 Awarded for 1000 limit bursts used. Two weeks of normal play will net you about 500 limit bursts. Fastest way to get your limit bursts up is by doing explorations and exhausting all random battles available.

Each of these give 1 additional trophy to the easy trophy list, so you will need to pick 4 trophies, or however many you left out.
