How to Raise Support Level
View Support Conversations
Support levels unlock support conversations or cutscenes. Not viewing support conversations prevents that character from gaining more support levels. Frequently check on the Support menu to see which characters have their Support Levels unlocked.
Events Raise Support
As the story progresses further, characters can be spoken to during certain events. Talking to them and choosing the right answer can raise their support.
Skipping Cutscenes Skips Conversations
Hurrying through cutscenes and skipping them also skips the conversation portion, preventing the player to choose an answer and raise Support. Take note of this especially on your next playthroughs.
Farming Support Level
Position Them For Linked Attacks
Support is increased whenever characters do a linked attack. Farming support can be done even when defending so try to place characters along side each other during battle.
During exploration, accessing facilities and inviting students to participate is another way of increasing support. While these activities usually consume an activity point, they also provide additional benefits like increased motivation or stats.Click Here To Know More About The Monastery And Its Facilities!
Facilities That Raise Support Level
- Choir Practice
- Advice Box / Counselling
- Sharing a Meal
- Tea Party (with Main Character only)
- Cooking Together (with Main Character only)
Group Tasks grant both stat experience and support for the two characters assigned to them. Make sure to use this weekly event effectively by pairing characters that you want to increase support levels with.Click Here To Know More About Group Tasks And Its Effects!
Regularly Change Pair-ups
Pairs in Group Tasks have to be regularly changed as they are not automatically unassigned every week. While it does raise the experience and support of the assigned characters, it might also cause inbalance in the distribution of support among your team.
Correct Replies Increase Support
In story events and conversations, there are times that the game requires the player to choose a reply. Although the player cannot choose a specific character, choosing the correct answer often rewards the player with points to raise support level.
Instructing Also Increases Support
During the teaching part of the game, if you want to concentrate on increasing the support of one character, consider not using Auto-Instruct and manually instruct characters instead. Instructing them has a chance of getting either a "Great" or a chance to either "Console" or "Praise" them, increasing their motivation and support.Click Here To Know How To Increase Motivation For More Support!
Support Level Effects
Support Level Is Trust Between Characters
Support Levels can be seen as how characters in the game trust each other. The higher it is, the better benefits it gives in battle.
Support Levels Have Limits
Support levels range from C to S but some characters' support are limited to up a certain level. Some characters have their limits set at Support level B.
Characters Cannot Raise Support With Everybody
Characters in the game cannot raise Support with every character in the game, and is especially true if you recruited someone from a different House.
