The game is centered around the fictional continent of Fodlan which is divided into three ruling powers. The powers are at peace and connected through the Mach Monastery. Contrary to previous titles in the series, the gameplay consists of tactical role-playing and the players time is divided between story-based battles and time spent in the Monastery. This is a new feature within the series that adds a more realistic touch to the game. The Monastery phase of the game is where the player can interact with students and other professors to build connections and gain the ability to recruit students as the player progresses. The story-based battles are featured as classic map battles laid out the same as previous titles with new battle tactics and the ability to use any weapons available.

Recruit any student

It is possible to recruit any student with at least B-Support status. It may take several tries, but you can save the game and try again if it fails. To increase a student’s support status, even if they are not on your team, there are a few things you can do. Buy them flowers on their birthday, gift them flowers from the garden, take them on battles by requesting their help, or invite them to meals. The best and easiest way is to simply give the student you want to recruit lots of flowers.

It requires approximately 30 flowers to reach B-Support. It does not matter how low your stats are —- students with B-Support can be recruited. You can have “E” level skills in everything and still get any students on your team. When a student is at B-Support or higher, they will randomly ask to join you. It will not happen every weekend — so reload your save file and retry weekends until the student finally offers to join. It is possible to recruit multiple students per month using this method, but do not expect to recruit more than one a week.
