Top 10 Best Activities Fire Emblem Three Houses

Updated on:

Fire Emblem Three Houses

Fire Emblem Three Houses: If you are a huge fan of the Fire Emblem series and own a Nintendo Switch, then I am pretty sure that you got your hands on the latest game in the series, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, as soon as it came out back in a few weeks ago.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a jam-packed strategy JRPG that you can spend 20 or more hours just goofing around doing a variety of activities available in the game. This does not include the lengthy main story as well. Plus, the replayability for this game is high considering you can start anew and select a different house for your second and third run. The game is set in a monastery where the main character is a professor.

Hence, you have to schedule your day off to do activities with your students. Activities usually cost activity points, and the amount you can use is dependent on your Professor level. Although some are exempted from this rule, such as fishing and gardening they use items instead.

You can only do so much with your limited time so it is better to plan the activities you want to participate in for the week ahead of time, and thus, we decided to give you a list of the top 10 best activities you can do in Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

10. Attend Seminars

Seminars in Fire Emblem: Three Houses are the same as what we have in real life, we learn and get motivated by attending one.

In the game, students learn weapon proficiency faster when the lecturer possesses a high level of proficiency, and their motivation increases when they align their objectives with the selected seminar. Unfortunately, just like in real life, attending seminars will take the whole free time that you have so you cannot do any other activities.

This is the sole reason why it is at number 10, it is only recommended to do seminars once you are on your new game or if you justify that the six attendees will benefit from it.

9. Participate in Tournaments

Tournament is a monthly activity where you select one of your students to participate in a House vs House event.

This activity is unlocked after completing the quest “Only the Bold”, and it costs an activity point. Each tournament has a minimum level requirement and a weapon restriction, so it is best to select a student who meets the level requirement and has a high proficiency with the weapon selected particularly for the tournament.

Before the tournament starts, you can see both the combatants, as well as the rewards. The reward each round is a small amount of gold, but after winning five rounds, you will reap both gold and the reward indicated at the start of the tournament.

8. Answering Advice Box

Advice Box is an activity that does not cost an activity point, however, you may only unlock it after accepting Mercedes’ quest named “Words of Wisdom”.

Upon unlocking this activity, visiting the counselor will grant you the opportunity to provide advice about the unanswered notes.

There are three suggestions to pick from, and the benefit of doing this activity is that you increase your support levels if you manage to answer their notes correctly.

The only catch is that the letter doesn’t reveal the author’s identity, but it includes a silhouette, offering a clue about the sender. Additionally, there is a 30-second time limit.

This is a good way to make your support levels increase faster as it does not cost an activity point and it is fairly easy to do so in your free time. Make sure to get to know the characters and at least put yourself into their shoes so you could easily answer their questions.

You may try restarting the game if you get an answer wrong, but there is no guarantee that you will get the same question as it is random every time.

7. Cultivate Plants in Gardening

Gardening is a free activity you can do in your spare time exploring the monastery.

Simply go to the Greenhouse Keeper and choose whether you want to Plant, Cultivate, or Harvest. Planting depends on your Professor level, so at first, you can only plant one selection of seeds per session.

You can gather seeds from random locations around the monastery, quest rewards, or even buy them from merchants. Cultivating lets you use techniques to improve the growth of the plants you have just planted.

Your Professor level also has a factor in this as the higher it is, the more cultivation options that you have. You can only select one method per session. Harvesting is basically the option where you have to gather the crops you planted. The seeds you planted and the cultivation method you selected for the plants’ growth determine the number of items you will be able to gather.

Of course, after harvesting the plants, you may opt to replant the new seeds that you have. Engage in this cost-free activity to harvest a variety of items useful for cooking, tea parties, and more. Seize the opportunity, get active, and enjoy the rewards without any financial investment!

6. Reel in the Fishes

Fishing is another free activity just like gardening (#7), and it can be unlocked after completing the side quest “Fresh Catch”.

You need to have baits to be able to fish, and you can get them from random locations, and quest rewards, and you may buy them later on from a merchant. Baits also affect your chance of reeling a large or rare fish.

Once you have baits, talk to the fishing pond’s keeper. Select your preferred bait, and wait for a bite from a fish. You have three tries to reel in the bite before you lose the bait.

If you manage to capture one, you can sell it or cook it (if possible). This activity needs a lot of patience, but you earn Professor EXP by doing this and it rewards you with ingredients or an item you can sell for gold.

5. Invite Someone for Tea

Tea Party is a great activity for bonding and building up affinities with someone in the game.

It is unlocked after completing the quest, “Tea for Two”. This activity costs activity points and you need to have tea leaves to be able to invite someone.

You can get it from gardening (#7) or by purchasing them from merchants. You may receive a declined response to your invitation, but this is due to the random nature of the response.

Restarting your game may yield a different result.

Considering a challenging activity, hosting a tea party in the game resembles a more difficult version of the advice box (number 8). This is because you must serve tea that your invitee likes, and you have to carefully select conversation topics that interest them.

If you manage to be a good host and correctly give interesting topics to your invitee, you are rewarded with Extra Time and both you and your guest will get an increase in your charisma. During Extra Time, you can now give gifts to your guests or observe them without a time limit or end the session.

You may also invite a birthday celebrant for a tea party without the cost of an activity point. It is highly recommended to do so to increase your affinity with the guest faster.

4.  Perform Faculty Training

Faculty Training focuses on improving the main character’s skill level.

This becomes available after completing the quest “Learning from the Best”.

This activity costs activity points so make sure to plan if you need to do this in your free time. You have to actively look for the Faculty members as they change locations every month.

Instructors can conduct one raining session per week, but you can participate in multiple training sessions with different instructors as long as you have enough activity points to consume.

Note that for certain faculty members, you may increase their affinity towards you by choosing them as instructors. The result of the faculty training is based on chance and the amount of experience you will get for your skill level ranges from Good to great, and Perfect.

Engage in this activity if you’re aiming to recruit a student but your skill level falls short of their minimum requirements. Take proactive steps to bridge the gap and enhance your skills, ensuring you meet the necessary criteria for successful recruitment. Of course, make sure to do faculty training with appropriate faculty members to get the maximum benefits.

3. Let’s Cook Together

Cooking Together is another activity that consumes activity points.

It becomes available after completing the “Creative Cuisines” quest. You have to select your partner in this activity, as well as the dish that you want to create.

Of course, you need to have the ingredients for the dishes and select characters that have blue arrows on their upper left as it means that you will get more support points by the end of the activity. You may cook up to 12 different dishes, and these dishes have different buffs that will affect your entire allies for the whole month.

A great trade-off in my opinion, just make sure you get as many ingredients as much as possible, so you can have a wide selection of choices. It is also recommended to complete this activity by the first week of the month. This activity will also give you Professor EXP, which helps you gain more activity points as you level it up.

2. Sing in Choir Practice

Choir Practice is an activity where it yields many rewards just by participating. It becomes available after completing the quest “A Passion for Music”

You need two partners to do choir practice. Just like Cooking Together (#3), it is recommended to select those that have the blue arrow on the upper left as they are more keen to sing and may yield better results.

However, you can choose anyone you want, and it is advisable to choose students who focus more on magic (Faith and Reason). Both you and the invitees will earn affinity (support points) towards each other, and if you choose to invite your own students, then they will gain EXP for Faith and Authority skills.

1. Eat Together

Share a Meal is another great way to bond with two characters, although it costs activity points.

This activity is available once you complete the quest “Share a Bite”. There are two types of menu when sharing a meal – Today’s Special and Full Menu.

Choose the former as it constitutes the signature dish of the day and can be selected once.  On the other hand, the latter is the list of dishes that characters will enjoy, but you need to have the ingredients to be able to select this menu.

Certain characters enjoy certain foods. Highly recommend selecting two characters who have affinities toward each other and have not maxed out their motivation, as this activity also increases their motivation. Of course, do not forget to select the food that they like to maximize the benefit you can get from doing this activity.

Sharing Is Caring:
