You can find the list of your friends in this menu option. You can also check their messages, reply to their emails, see their stats and location, and invite/remove them from your party from this list.

Friendship Level

Guide Image

This is affected by the game's Affection System. To check the character's Affection status, you have to press Triangle to open the Character Analysis screen. Talking to another character increases his/her affection to you a bit.There are also other actions that can improve their affinity towards you (like reporting quests in the Teleport Gate Plaza increases the affinity of the quest giver NPC there) but the most common would be talking to them, completing errands, and complimenting them in battle. As you grow closer to the character, you'll be able to do more things with him/ her.

  • LV1 - Stranger
  • LV2 - Acquiantance: The character will send you message and even invite you to meet up in town.
  • LV3 - Friendly: Receive a friend request from another player. Can invite him/her for a walk around town and can be invited to the party.
  • LV4 - Close: Can give presents (weapon), depending on the partner's mood, you can hold hands. You can also bring partner to your room in the inn and bridal carry her to the bed to trigger a pillow talk scene. Successfully completing this pillow talk conversation will display a special CG conversation with your partner (for unique characters only; no scenes for minor characters or normal players)
  • LV5 ??? - Can give presents (armor)

Since you have to talk directly to the characters you want to invite to walk with your around town, to complete their errands, or to hand them gifts, you can check their location by pressing R1.

Inviting Friends to join party for quests

You can only invite players with at least Friendship Level 3. You can do this by talking to them directly (press Square to open the menu) or selecting their name from tyour Friend List then pressing L1.

Replying to emails (NPC/ Friend Quests) and Errands

By completing Gathering quests, the quest givers will often message you. If you've done enough for them, they'll message you if you can meet up in town. They'lll be easy to locate since they'll have markers above their heads. Talk to them to receive another errand directly from them. Gather the necessary materials for them to drastically improve their Friendship level towards you. Sometimes, you also need to talk to them several times to fully fill up their Friendship level to LV3.

Now change areas and you'll receive a Friend Request from them. Once you're officially friends, you can now invite them over to walks around town and invite them to your party. Once they're at LV3, you can now walk with them around town and invite them to your party. (You can even invite shopkeepers if you complete their quests)

Private Chats

When walking around with a partner, you can engage her in private chats in certain dating points around town. These conversations, when done prorperly can improve your partner's mood and further increase his/her affinity towards you. You'll often get a notification how much points you improved after the end of the Private Chat.

Pillow Talks

After raising your partner's mood to the highest possible point for them (either Blissful or Romantic) and you're at least Friendship Level 4 with her, you can take her to your room at the inn, hold her hands then bridal carry her to the bed. If done correctly, you'll engage in a pillow talk mini-game, similar to Private Chats and you'll witness a special CG scene for the unique characters.
