SP Farming Guide for Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion
This page contains a guide on how to farm SP in Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion (FFVII CC Remaster/Crisis Core Reunion), including the best ways to earn SP fast, recommended equipment (Materia and accessories), and other useful tips for farming.
What is SP?
SP or Soldier Points in Crisis Core: Reunion is a resource used to spin the Digital Mind Wave (DMW) slot in battle. SP also used to synthesize and boost Materia through Materia Fusion. You can earn SP through various methods such as defeating enemies or converting unwanted or unused Materia through the “Convert to SP” feature.
In the game’s story, SP is described as the concentration of the substance called Mako within a SOLDIER member’s body.
How to Farm SP
Method 1: Grind Missions repeatedly.
|Mission Name||Method and SP Gained|
|Mission 6-6-3: Secret in the Caverns||
|Mission 9-5-2: Unusually Strong Monsters||You will get 20000 to 100000 SP per Three Stars defeated.|
Defeating enemies without taking any damage lets you earn more SP. You will get massive amounts of the resource by taking down tough enemies like Mover EX or Three Stars.
To meet this condition, it is recommended to use Magical Punch (Materia) against them which lets you deal massive damage the closer Zack is to max MP. Note that Magical Punch ignores defenses so you will be able to burst down the target’s health faster.
Method 2: Craft and Sell Elemental Ward Materia (Master).
|1||Prepare 20 to 30 Thundaga Materia.|
|2||Prepare 20 to 30 HP Up Materia.|
|3||Fuse Thundaga Materia and HP Up Materia.|
|4||Make Elemental Ward Materia to Master.|
|5||Sell Elemental Ward Materia (Master).|
Preparing 20 to 30 Thundaga Materia
You can farm Thundaga Materia from Thunderbird enemies found in Missions 2-3-3, 6-4-1, and 8-3-6. Equip Mog’s Amulet, Brigand’s Gloves, and Brutal for an easier time obtaining the Materia through stealing or enemy drops.
|Equipment||Effect||How to Get|
|Mog’s Amulet||Ensures all items stolen or dropped by enemies are rare.||Buy from Sector 7 Shop for 10000 Gil or clear Mission 7-6-4: The Irritated Recruiter.|
|Brigand’s Gloves||Ensures a successful steal.||Buy from Sector 7 Shop for 10000 Gil or clear Mission 7-4-2: Second Contact.|
|Brutal||Sets max damage dealt to an enemy to 99999.||Clear Mission 7-4-6: Breakthrough or Mission 9-5-1: Hojo’s Monsters.|
Preparing 20 to 30 HP Up Materia
Prepare the same number of HP Up Materia as Thundaga Materia. You can buy HP Up Materia from Sector 8 – Materia Shop for 1000 Gil each.
Fusing Thundaga Materia and HP Up Materia
By fusing Thundaga Materia and HP Up Materia, you can get Elemental Ward Materia. From here, you can already get 12000 SP by converting Elemental Ward Materia. It is, however, recommended to raise the Materia to Master first to convert it to even more SP.
Making Elemental Ward Materia to Master
Use Moogle Power DMW Summon Materia to level up Elemental Ward Materia to Master. You can buy Moogle Power Materia from Junon Souvenirs shop for 10000 Gil. Since it is possible to stack the effects of Moogle Power Materia, you should by 2 to 3 copies of it. Then, equip 2 Elemental Ward Materia, 2 Moogle Power Materia, and 1 Lucky Stars Materia. From here, do any of the Missions under Shinra’s Basic Training and spend the battles activating the Moogle Power Materia effect.
Selling Elemental Ward Materia (Master)
You can get a massive 120000 SP by converting one Elemental Ward Materia (Master) into SP . Repeat this method to mass produce the Materia when farming SP.
Method 3: Secret SP Farming Method (Curse Exploit)
|1||Make SP Master Materia or SP Barrier Materia to Master.|
|2||Prepare Quake Materia and Dualcast Materia.|
|3||Equip Adaman Bangle, Magic Master, Sprint Shoes, and Twisted Headband.|
|4||Put Zack in a Cursed state.|
|5||Farm SP at “Defeat the Copies” Mission|
Making SP Master Materia or SP Barrier Materia to Master
This SP farming method needs SP Master Materia (Master) or SP Barrier Materia (Master). These Materia allow Zack to use SP to reduce damage taken by expending SP. You can achieve 100% damage reduction by raising these Materia to Master so Use Moogle Power Summon Materia to level them up.
Preparing Quake Materia and Dualcast Materia.
Quake Materia is a strong area-of-effect (AoE) spell and Double Magic Materia makes it activate twice. To clear out enemies faster and increase farming efficiency, try to craft these Materia.
|Materia||Effect||How to Get|
|Quake||Deal damage on all enemies around Zack (cannot hit flying enemies).||Buy from Wutai Secret Shop for 18000 Gil or clear Mission 2-2-6: World of Monsters.|
|Dualcast||Activates magic twice.||Buy from Net Shop Trade for 30000 Gil or obtained from a chest in Mission 9-4-1: Genesis’s Ambition.|
Equip Adaman Bangle, Magic Master, Sprint Shoes, and Twisted Headband
This SP farming method requires 4 accessories obtained from various Missions.
|Accessory||Effect||How to Get|
|Adaman Bangle||Sets max HP limit to 99999.||Clear Mission: P’s Precognition Lv.6.|
|Magic Master||Remove MP cost and increase all magic parameters.||Obtained from chest in Mission 9-4-5: Only for SOLDIER.|
|Sprint Shoes||Immune to Stop status effect.||Buy from Nibel Accessories for 3000 Gil or Clear Mission 4-2-5: Stubborn Remnants or Mission 7-1-6: Second Deputy Assignment.|
|Twisted Headband||Always in Endure effect.||Buy from Mythril Mine Trading for 10000 Gil or Clear Mission 7-4-1: First Contact.|
Putting Zack in a Cursed state.
To prevent the DMW from activating, you must put Zack in a Cursed state. To do this, go into Mission 8-5-2: Treasure Info 2 and let an Ahriman inflict you with it.
Farming SP in Mission 3-5-5: Defeat the Copies
When all preparations are done, begin Mission 3-5-5: Defeat the Copies and farm SP with the method listed below.
|1||Use Quake Materia to deal 9999 damage (x4) on the 6 G Hoplites.|
|2||Keep getting hit with the G Hoplite HP drain attack.|
|3||When your SP is low use Quake Materia to kill all 6 of them at once.|
Important Points when Farming SP
- If you are facing outward, it is easier to receive critical hits, allowing you expend SP faster.
- Get close to G Hoplite to prevent them from using moves other than the HP drain attack.
- Because you can get nearly double the amount of SP consumed, the more SP you have, the more you will earn.
