Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is Square Enix’s latest release into the Final Fantasy series for the iOS and Android platforms. This game combines both the town and dungeon exploration of the console Final Fantasy franchise with a signature battling system similar to that of Brave Frontier. It features a deep story with diverse characters from the entire history of the Final Fantasy franchise.
Gamers of Brave Frontier will notice that the battle system is somewhat familiar to them as it consists of a simplified interface where players can command their heroes to attack by touching and swiping the corresponding characters. They can choose between the main attack, special attacks, defense mode or usage of items during battles. As part of the game’s gacha system, gamers can also summon characters, which they can use to build a party of five units. Through the game, players can advance by gaining experience points, leveling up their heroes, crafting materials, and money. (Click Here to read more about the game features)
Having played the game for the past seven days, I have compiled five beginner tips about Final Fantasy Brave Exvius that can help every budding #FFBEWW gamer start into the game.
Tip #1. Have a Good Start
Getting a powerful character in the early game provides a significant advantage when you embark on your quest. Having a 4-5 star character while your main character (Rain) is just a 2-star character allows you to clear the game with more ease and give you a good head start in the game.
Here is a simple re-roll guide:
1. Play the game as per normal using a guest account.
2. Complete the tutorial to claim your FREE Summon Tickets and Lapis. You can either play the game diligently or simply skip conversation/ story clip so you can finish it in minutes. To skip, just pause the game, and then when you are trying to resume it, you will see the word “skip” which will let you fast-forward the conversation.
3. Proceed until you are on the homepage and have the ability to summon (at least 12 times).
4. Judge whether you are satisfied with your initial summons.
5. Make sure you have a Dummy Facebook account to “throw away” this account. Just login to this Facebook via the options menu.
6. After that, log out of this Facebook account and you will notice that you can start over with a new tutorial.
7. Repeat this process, until you are satisfied with your initial set-up and link this account to your Facebook.
