5 Beginner Tips for Final Fantasy Brave Exvius!




Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is Square Enix’s latest release into the Final Fantasy series for the iOS and Android platforms. This game combines both the town and dungeon exploration of the console Final Fantasy franchise with a signature battling system similar to that of Brave Frontier. It features a deep story with diverse characters from the entire history of the Final Fantasy franchise.

Gamers of Brave Frontier will notice that the battle system is somewhat familiar to them as it consists of a simplified interface where players can command their heroes to attack by touching and swiping the corresponding characters. They can choose between the main attack, special attacks, defense mode or usage of items during battles. As part of the game’s gacha system, gamers can also summon characters, which they can use to build a party of five units. Through the game, players can advance by gaining experience points, leveling up their heroes, crafting materials, and money. (Click Here to read more about the game features)

Having played the game for the past seven days, I have compiled five beginner tips about Final Fantasy Brave Exvius that can help every budding #FFBEWW gamer start into the game.

Tip #1. Have a Good Start

Getting a powerful character in the early game provides a significant advantage when you embark on your quest. Having a 4-5 star character while your main character (Rain) is just a 2-star character allows you to clear the game with more ease and give you a good head start in the game.

Final Fantasy Brave Exvius Tips 1B

Here is a simple re-roll guide:
1. Play the game as per normal using a guest account.
2. Complete the tutorial to claim your FREE Summon Tickets and Lapis. You can either play the game diligently or simply skip conversation/ story clip so you can finish it in minutes. To skip, just pause the game, and then when you are trying to resume it, you will see the word “skip” which will let you fast-forward the conversation.
3. Proceed until you are on the homepage and have the ability to summon (at least 12 times).
4. Judge whether you are satisfied with your initial summons.
5. Make sure you have a Dummy Facebook account to “throw away” this account. Just login to this Facebook via the options menu.
6. After that, log out of this Facebook account and you will notice that you can start over with a new tutorial.
7. Repeat this process, until you are satisfied with your initial set-up and link this account to your Facebook.

What should I start with?
As a starting guide, this is something I found online which might be useful.

Tip #2. Log-In Daily

Just like every other mobile game, being a diligent gamer has its perks. Popular game titles are leveraging on this tested and proven fact to ensure that its players always log in daily, and be rewarded. Once each day, players will be given a different reward like Ticket Summon, Lapis, Gils, and items. Therefore, it is best for gamers to check-in at least once a day to collect these perks.

Tip #3. Participate in Events

Tip #4. Understanding the Game

It is imperative for gamers to understand the game from how it is being played to what each attribute of a character stands for. By understanding the game well, you will be able to master your characters and craft strategies to excel in the game.

Status: HP | MP | ATK | DEF | MAG | SPR
HP = Health Point | MP = Magic Point | ATK = Physical Damage | DEF = Physical Defense | MAG = Magic Damage | SPR = Magic Defense & Heal Abilities

LB: Limit Burst or known as Limit Break at final fantasy series. It increases level/potency with use.

Trust Master: Trust value is located on any unit’s stats page (except story units) at the bottom. Trust starts at 0.0% and has 10% chance to increase by 0.1% after completion of any quest. When a unit’s trust value reaches 100%, you receive the reward to the right of the meter. You also can gain 5% base + accumulated % from enhance the unit with a duplicate/same unit.
Example: 30% Cecil+30% Cecil(5% base)+30% Cecil(5% base) = 100%

Rarity: Character specific Min/Max Stars
Goes to the next tier when “Awakened”. You can awaken the character when it reach Max Level and have enough materials.

Tip #5. Complete Daily Quests and Enjoy the Game!

Complete your daily quests to get the 50 FREE Lapis. If you are struggling to progress in the story, do a few experience vortex runs and make sure you equip your heroes with the best gears you have.

Although this game is a Free To Play title, players can still purchase perks to gain competitive advantage via micro-transactions. In any case, if you would like to have a significant advantage in the game, you are always welcome to visit the “Cash Shop”.

SITEX - V11 2

Despite having a big display at 6.41-inch (16.29cm), the Vivo V11 does not feel like a large phone. Featuring a Halo FullView™ Display at 2,340 x 1,080 resolution, the phone can produce stunning images for a vibrant, ultra-vivid experience.

SITEX - Casio Pro Trek 2

SITEX - Casio Pro Trek 3

Casio’s Pro Trek WSD-F30 is the outdoors smartwatch even watch fans will adore. Casio has invested the last few years making smartwatches that are designed for adventure and active enthusiasts, and 2018’s iteration of the Pro Trek Smart WSD F range is a more refined version of that range.

The WSD F30 is a rugged piece of gadget, while it may not appear to be designed for military-grade protection, it should well survive some tough knocks and tumbles. It is water-resistant up to 50-meters, making it ideal for active use. Featuring a 1.2-inch dual-layer display and a resolution of 390 x 390 with capacitive touchscreen, it delivers clear visuals when looking at it in bright lighting.

You can select any of the 3 modes to suit your activity – the monochrome and color display separately to maintain optimum visibility in any environment, also to provide efficient power management for battery saving.

The watch also comes with Google’s Wear OS software, which means you’ll be able to download apps off the Play Store while also using it with your iPhone or Android devices. You can also have a choice of using Google Maps or the mapping technology by Casio, to give you an accurate location during your regular outdoor adventures.


#3 Sony WH-1000XM3



Released in August 2018, Sony’s WH-1000XM3 headphones are the latest in Sony’s line of flagship headphones. The Sony WH-1000XM3 are clearly the decendents of 1000XM2 and the 1000X before them; the overall shape and look are almost the same.

The Sony WH-1000XM3 is more comfortable than its predecessors as it is lighter, and has a thicker headband cushion that is wrapped with faux leather on the super soft ear cups. The headband is also more oval in shape to fit the head better, while allowing for more compact carrying.


Sony’s new QN1 HD processor on the WH-1000XM3, improves both audio processing and noise cancellation. Noise canceling headphones have a challenge dealing with mid to high-frequency sounds, like human voices, but the WH-1000MX3 delivers pretty well.

In addition, the Adaptive Sound Control feature allows you to set your preferred level of noise cancellation based on your needs – ranging from full noise cancellation, wind noise reduction, and allowing through various amounts of ambient noise. Pairing with Quick Attention, you can simply communicate without removing your headphones.

Sony’s WH-1000XM3 headphones are retailing at S$549 at booth 5D01B (Hall 5).

Nexon’s MapleStory M: Nostalgic World of MapleStory on Mobile




MapleStory M

MapleStory, launched in 2003, is a free-to-play 2D side-scrolling MMORPG where players can choose from many exciting job classes and explore different worlds within the Maple Universe. MapleStory M, on the other hand, is an all-new mobile adventure spinoff based on the original MapleStory. When launched in Korea in October 2016, MapleStory M quickly became the #1 ranked free game on both iOS and Android. Now, after its global debut, Nexon has announced that it has been downloaded over three million times, becoming one of the top games in 2018 on Google Play.

In MapleStory M, players can relive the same experience that they get from the original desktop franchise, through their mobile phones. Nexon did a great job of transferring the game’s interface onto a phone, making it more user-friendly and intuitive, without differing much from the original gameplay. In the game, players can quickly view and access the controls, menu, quests, chatroom, and health and magic indicators at any time, in or out of battle. Unlike the original MapleStory, where there are a large number of hotkeys attached to the game’s features which may pose a problem for new players. This easy accessibility and visibility of the in-game’s features is a significant improvement.

MapleStory M - Characters

MapleStory M - Customization

The game also features the original set of classes, The Explorers, at the same time, players can play and communicate in real-time with millions of players around the world. There are in-depth, immersive storylines, real-time events, and big boss raids. Players can also enjoy endless character customization through hair colors, fashionable items, and accessories.

Other special features of MapleStory M include Auto Quest and Auto Battle. Auto Quest is accessible as soon as players start the game. It allows players to send their characters on a mission to either obtain quests by engaging with NPCs (non-player characters) or fulfill the quest’s requirements like killing a certain number of golems or collecting a particular mob drop. This feature decreases the amount of time needed to fulfill tedious quests, and more time can be dedicated to hanging out with the guild or exploring the worlds. Auto Battle can be unlocked when the character reaches level 20. Every day, players will receive a free “2-Hour Charge” for Auto Battle, which allows the character to automatically attack and kill whatever mobs that are on the map. When Auto Battle is turned on, the character will automatically navigate within the map, attacking mobs, getting experience points, and consuming pots to maintain optimum health and magic points.

MapleStory M Key Features
