Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is such a great game! I don’t think I’ve played a better mobile game yet. I used to play Final Fantasy all the time when I was little. Cloud is probably my favorite character in the series even though everyone else loves him too, but he’s not in the game yet. I’m sure he’s coming eventually though. So many people are going to be spending money to get him. Lightning is pretty fun though, she’s really OP.
Playing through the game, I learned that the trust master stuff is really hard to get and it takes a long time. I have a Cecil and he has Excalibur as his trust master reward. It’s a +120 attack sword and I’ve read that it’s one of the strongest in the game so far. I’ve also heard that Zidane’s dual wield is the best ability in the game, so I’m going to try to get that one too. Dual wield lets you attack twice, even if you use an ability. Apparently he’s not that great in the game, though. Zidane is probably my second favorite. But can you imagine, putting both dual wield and an Excalibur? You’d be able to rip through so many battles!
I’ve been looking through a few guides online to make grinding it a bit easier. There seems to be a great way! You can use macros in the game. You can download an emulator to your computer and connect your Brave Exvius account to it if you have your Facebook account on it. Even though I use an iPhone, I connected it to MEmu like Berry Mariner suggested in his trust macro guide. The latest patch made Brave Exvius crash on Nox whenever it tries to load. Oh well! MEmu is pretty cool.
Setting up a macro is a lot easier than I expected! All you have to do is go to the very beginning area and then set it up. You open it up on MEmu and press the play button and it’ll record everything. After you get through the battle like normal, it’ll play by itself. Technology is crazy today! I leave my computer on while I’m at my classes and it goes through like I’m playing. I’ve gotten Cecil up to 18% already! I need to find someone else to do because anyone in your party can raise trust. Well, except for Rain, Lasswell, and Fina. They don’t have trust for some reason.
Trust master farming is pretty tricky though, even with a macro. There’s a lot of stuff that can throw it off. There’s a few times when my materials were full and it made my macro stop. I keep forgetting to clean them out before I start it up again. I’ll learn one day, I guess. You have to remember to sell your stacks of life orbs and stuff. Oh, and if you run out of energy, it’ll break it as well. Sometimes it’ll reset itself if it goes through a couple of times, though.
Anyway, there’s a lot of stuff you can do with a macro. There’s some really advance ones out there that play a whole map for you. I can’t imagine how much work that would take. I checked on the FFBE subreddit (r/FFBraveExvius) for some stuff and there’s a guy on there that made one for the Mogcake event that happened a few weeks ago. That seems a bit much, though. Those events are what make the game fun, even if it’s grinding!
He has a whole listing of a gigantic macro that takes into account things like positioning and “do this when” commands. I can’t imagine how much coding goes into that. I mean, it’s all there, but geez. It’s super long! It has to be at least 200 lines. I think he did it all by hand, too. If you’re that dedicated, then by all means, macro away! You’re crazy, but at least you’re having fun! Haha, I’m kidding of course—about them having fun. (Kidding again, I promise.)
Someone on the subreddit did a bit of calculation with the trust master farming. I think he came up with about a month and a few days of leaving your macro going the entire time. God, that’s such a long time. I don’t know if I’ll be able to do that. …Nah, I’ll be able to. It’s not like I’m actually doing anything, so why not? The game can get pretty hard later on with the new, extra bosses that come out. I barely was able to be Golbez in the Giant of Babel event that happened recently.
Even though it’s taking the playing out of the game with the macro, I think that the trust master system could be a BIT more lenient, you know? I mean, we are getting a few more trust Moogles, I suppose. Those increase your trust master by 5%-10% depending on what kind it is. That’s a lot of time saved, at least. No matter what, though, you should try to get a Zidane and use them on him. Dual wield is the best thing in the game right now!
There’s a new event happening right now, too. I’m going to have to balance out my grinding and trust master farming. I can leave my computer on at night when I sleep and set the macro to delay for five minutes after completing. Doing that guarantees I won’t run out of energy and I’ll have a full tank when I wake up! And then I’ll be able to use the rest of my energy to farm some more in the event. And then go back to the macro! Someone might think I’m addicted to this game if I told anyone about this… Wait a second…
