The best early-game equipment to use is as follows.

  • The Pelerine Cloak: Critical hits can restore health to Frey.
  • The Orison Necklace: Auto-heal effects triggered when an enemy is defeated.
  • Slay Nails: Support magic deals more damage when Surge magic is fully charged.
  • Clutch Nails: Healing item effects are boosted when health is low.

You will obtain these items by following the main story, and you can explore the open world to gather the materials they require for upgrades. We suggest adding All Spell Damage increases to these gear pieces and upgrading Frey’s Defense. This will allow you to consistently heal yourself in combat and empower your abilities and spells.

This loadout can easily carry you into chapter seven. The first region contains several Mutants or world bosses, and taking them out with this gear will earn you many powerful upgrades for late-game challenges. Before you take on Tanta Prav in chapter eight, we suggest looking at the map for other cloaks and necklaces to augment your playstyle and builds.
