What do you get from Supports?

Recommended Posts

I've played Awakening a couple times but one thing I never got..

What do supports really do? In the GBA games, you obtain the other unit's Affinity bonuses, but what about in Awakening? What kind of boosts do you get?

Let me know.

In Awakening, a unit who is in battle will get bonuses to their hit rate, hit avoid, critical rate, and critical avoid if they are adjacent with or paired up with another unit and give the supporting a chance to block an attack or attack the enemy with the lead. If the two units have a support level, the bonuses increase, being better the higher the support level is. This is especially true with an S Rank.

Thanks. I'm aware of the Pair up bonuses themselves, but does the unit you support with matter? Does their class effect the bonuses they give? Or could you support with any unit and pretty much get the same bonuses?

Yes, the class of the unit matters when pairing up. For example, pairing up with a Knight or General will give boosts to Defense and Strength (mostly the former).

Thanks, but how does it work more in detail? Does that mean supporting with myrmidons give me..skill and speed? Is it simply dependant on classes, so you get an innate boost on some stats dependant on the classes, or is something a little more complex?

There's an innate boost that varies based on class, but there's also an increase based on support level. There's a bit more to it in the calculation (I think), but details should be on the site somewhere.
