We witnessed the arrival of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake on April 10. The action role-playing game was developed and published by Square Enix and is a remake of the praised 1997 PlayStation game Final Fantasy 7.
Players must control the mercenary Cloud Strife as he and a team dubbed AVALANCHE resist Shinra, a megacorporation. The gameplay uniquely mixes real-time action with other strategic elements. Wonder how to get better and understand some parts of the game? Here are some useful and fun tips and tricks to try.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Tips and Tips for Beginners
Pressure and Stagger Details
To ‘Pressure’ an opponent is among the first things you learn in Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Then, you must increase the damage on it in a ‘Staggered’ state. The Stagger system exists in every opponent’s health bar. When you fill it up, they’ll reach a Staggered state, meaning you’ll be able to damage the enemy more. Use only basic attacks, and you will increase that bar up. Add spells and skills, and boost it up even faster.
Also, if you Pressure an enemy, the Stagger bar increases at enormous rates. Check ATB charges to find out when you can use the skills and spells. A great tip is to have all your ATB charges filled right before an opponent gets Staggered. Try to enjoy the experience and work at your skills as much as you can. Once you fight the Shock Troopers and the Guard Sentinel, nothing won’t stop you.
SP Applies to Every Weapon and Character
Reach the Sector 7, and Biggs will mod the Cloud’s, Buster Sword. You’ll be able then to upgrade all your weapons using SP. You can gain SP by leveling up in battles. Also, use SP on weapon upgrades to unlock skills and stat buffs for some weapons. Remember that every character and weapon will receive the same amount of SP. They are all separate, as well.
After you unlock the skill to take on side quests in the Sector 7, you’ll see an NPC dubbed Chadley. Follow him and talk to him. You can pay Chadley some Gil and reset upgrades for a weapon. By doing that you can respend your SP.
Hoard All the Materia
Chadley is one of your most significant sources of Materia. He can take you on his Battle Intel quests. A quest involves assessing opponents in the attack, Stagger them, or hit their weaknesses. Chadley will make a new element of Materia each time you finish a quest. You can then buy that piece of Materia at a decent discount.
Moreover, Chadley’s Materia orbs can enhance your ATB efficiency and your dodge. Materia can also be purchased from vending machines and item shops. However, most orbs are present in the open world, so if you have the Gil to spend, you can buy an extra one. By doing that, you get sure you have many characters with some spell overlaps. Efficient tip: Fire and Thunder should cover most of the opponent’s weaknesses throughout your playthrough.
Purchase the Yellow Items at Vending Machines
Vending machines and benches are new in the game. Whenever you’re crossing the world or walk through a dungeon, you might notice a vending machine with a bench next to it. Try to rest on the bench as much as you can to restore your party’s MP and HP. Use the vending machine to resupply.
The yellow items mean that they’re being sold at a discount. You can quickly grab some Phoenix Downs or Hi-Potions at only a few hundred Gil each. Try no to pay full cost for healing items. You’ll usually be able to get a healthy supply by opening up chests or battling. Also, don’t forget to save some of your Gil for equipment and extra Materia.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is an entertaining game. Hopefully, the tips and tricks presented above will help every beginner learn and master the recently released RPG.
