Support Bonus



Certain pairs of characters can receive a boost to their combat stats–known as a support bonus–when fighting within 3 squares of one other.

In general, there are two types of relationships that yield a support bonus.

Close and reliable friends, such as Alm and Gray, may have a support bonus from the get-go. This type of relationship provides a fixed support bonus that never changes.

Emergent friends, such as Alm and Clair, must continually fight together to foster a support bonus. This kind of relationship is flexible and the support bonus provided can be upgraded.

(There are a few extra-special pairs that are a combination of the two.)

Pairs that fall into the second category can earn support points via these methods (capped at 20 Points per battle):

Action Points
Participate in the same battle +1
Fight an enemy while within 2 squares of an ally +1
Use White Magic on an ally +2

Once enough points have been accumulated, the pair can Talk on the battlefield to trigger a support conversation and improve their support rank.

Support ranks start from “C” and progress to “B” and finally “A”. The higher the rank, the better the stat boosts when the pair fight near each other.

Notes:

  • The listed bonuses come from the support partner. The bonuses given to the support partner can be different.
  • Bonuses from the same partner at different support ranks do not stack.
  • All pairs gain 1 support point at the beginning of each rank (including “no” rank). Effectively, you can subtract 1/2/3 points from the tables for C/B/A rank.
