Final Fantasy Type 0 Level Up Guide

Updated on March 23, 2015

Each character is defined by -

  • HP - the higher the better, means that the character can absorb more damage before dying. Cure or similar spells can raise the HP again. Reraise will bring the character back from the dead.
  • MP - one is hoping to have as many magic points as possible, because this is the fun part of the final fantasy type 0 game, where more MP means more opportunities to cast magic.
  • Attack - Determines melee damage. Especially important for melee fighters like King with the lance.
  • Fire Magic - determines the damage and susceptibility to fire magic.
  • Lightning Magic - determines the damage and susceptibility to lightning magic.
  • Defense - the higher, the better physical defense against enemy attacks and damage.
  • Ice Magic - determines the damage and susceptibility to ice magic.
  • Defence Magic - the higher, the better magical defence against enemy magical attacks.

Abilities Level Up Guide

The basic abilities of heroes in class zero are given below, and some illustrations and examples are given for those favourite or sexy heroes where level up of abilities are concerned.

Ace - He is the flashy hero at the beginning of the game. He uses a deck of cards, and is a ranged fighter who throws cards from a distance, damaging enemies. These are his basic abilities at the beginning.

  • Intel - check status of locked on targets
  • Quick Reflexes - Dodge even during other actions
  • Focus
  • Finishing Blow - perform a finishing move after normal attacks
  • Cut cards
  • Attack Hand - draw cards from a deck stacked with attack effects
  • Support Hand - draw cards from a deck stacked with support effects
  • Life Hand - draw cards from a deck stacked with HP recovery effects
  • Spirit Hand - draw cards from a deck stacked with MP recovery effects

Ace's skills will be supplemented by more powerful abilities such as evasive moves like slipstream and attack powers like laser beam card attack. However, Ace may be superseded later by other characters in terms of their speed and attack prowess and spell casting abilities. However, always keep Ace available as a ranged fighter.

  • Example - Ace's dodge and card abilities are needed against the white tiger l'Cie, the first boss of the game.

Later, Sice can level up to have the death maelstorm abilitiy. This ability causes damage in a whirlwind cloud of death storm.

Example - When Sice attacks, she is a beauty. Her scythe is long reaching, and when you level her up and add death maelstrom to the action, she is virtually unstoppable. Just remember to add health to her health bar when you level her up

Machina's basic abilities are -

  • Intel
  • Bolt rapiers (basic attack)
  • Cyclone drive (does not use MP)

Here's a recap of the basic abilities of the heroes of class 0. More abilities and level up potential will be added as the heroes achieve higher and higher levels.

Level Up Eidolons, Magic and Other Areas

  • Note that it is not just the heroes who can level up. The heroes can summon eidolons and these can level up too.
  • Also, the heroes can wield much more powerful magic. Go to the altocrystalium, and use the phantoma to upgrade the spells. Level up spells by increasing their power, range, casting time and other effects such as reduction in MP costs.
  • As the characters become more powerful, they earn more gil and can purchase more powerful weapons and armor to add to their armament. Pretty soon, the full might of the Militesi empire cannot defeat the heroes of class 0.
