Greetings everyone! Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Just a small introduction before jumping into the guide. I am looking for anyone willing to contribute! Main thing I am looking for is help in compiling pictures for multiple menus in the game and their functions. If you are willing to help, please contact me on here in any way or via Discord - MuffinatorMan#4003. Thank you! Dissidia: Final Fantasy Opera Omnia went live on Global servers on February 1st, 2018. I started about a week or two after that and have experienced the game in its fullest form: from start to the current content. Because of my experience with the game, I have finally decided to take the time with my compiled knowledge and shove it all into this thread for all players to take advantage of. Not everything in this guide is solely my knowledge as this guide is not just a means of gratification. It is a means for the community to really compile their expertise on the game and come together as a real forum group should. A small disclaimer: This guide is intended ONLY for Global DFFOO, not JP DFFOO. Both games are currently in way different states of content and I have not personally played DFFOO JP. However, some content will have similarities with them. I would like to thank everyone that contributed in any way, and thank you, the reader, for taking your time to view everything I have included in this guide. A list below of who contributed and with what: (if I missed you, please PM me and we can get you in there!) Spoiler: Contributors (Placeholder) This guide is a means for new, experienced and veterans alike to grasp a hold of game elements they may or may not know about. This guide was compiled in a way to help better understand the majority aspects of the game and how to do most basic and intricate functions within the game. For ease of access: I have compiled a list that will allow you to quickly CTRL+F to find what you are looking for if it's only something specific. Each section will have a 3 letter code to help identify/locate within the thread easily. Please see below: Spoiler: Table of Contents Section 1: Introduction [INT] Section 2: Starting Up [STU] Section 3: Friend List and Support Summon [FRL] Section 4: Game Areas, Content and Quests [QST] Section 5: Character Equipment, Passives and General Knowledge [CHR] Section 6: In-game Shops and Currency Trade-ins [SHP] Section 7: Banner Draws [BNR] The guide will be broken up into multiple sections and thread posts to keep it neatly organized and easiest to read. If for any reason something is missed, overlooked, updated in-game but not in the guide or there is a request, please feel free to leave a post here, PM me, catch me in chat or contact me on Discord (MuffinatorMan#4003). Thank you for taking your time to read the above information. Now, without keeping anyone longer, let us start with the guide! Section 1: Introduction [INT] So you finally decided to give DFFOO a try after staring at it in your app store and are downloading it as we speak (or already have). Well, allow me to fill you in on some basic information about the game, what it has to offer and the overall game mechanic. Dissidia: Final Fantasy Opera Omnia is based on the PSP game called Dissidia Final Fantasy. Without getting into detailed explanation about that game, allow me to give a short overview: The game is unique in a way that it pulls from all current Final Fantasy games to supply its character roster. Characters from Final Fantasy 1, to Crystal Chronicles, Tactics and spin-offs like World of Final Fantasy. With that, there are a wide array of characters available for use in the DFFOO world. Another important mechanic is that the game does not function like general Final Fantasy games do. Such as: character A uses a skill and it does 200 points of Hit Points (HP) damage. Instead, DFFOO uses a mechanic called Brave and a separate action for HP attacks. Brave damage is targeted towards an enemy's total Brave. Attacking their brave allows you to gain Brave based on the damage dealt. In addition, dealing more damage than the enemy has Brave will give you a Brave Break, increasing the overall Brave that you earn. The important thing to note about Brave is that every character has a limit, indicated in the character screen (more on this later down the road). Once you have enough Brave, you will be able to HP attack and directly injure your enemy. Thus ends the introduction to DFFOO and the end of this introduction post! Thank you for your time and good luck out there!
