What is Support?
The Support System is a mechanic in which units can develop bonds or relationships with each other. This bond lets these units gain stat bonuses whenever they are near each other on the map.
Having multiple bonds between your units can help overpower enemies.
How Does the Support System Work?

As shown in the clip above, having allies near the unit you’re controlling increases their Hit Rate and Avoid Rate. You can choose up to three units from whom you receive boosts.
Moreover, you can look at a unit’s support level list to see which allies give the best bonuses. You can increase two units’ support level by having them regularly help each other in battle.
How to Gain Support Boosts
There are different ways to increase the support level of your characters.
Visit and Talk with Characters during Free Exploration
During your free exploration, look for the characters around the monastery. Talk to them and pick the correct response to obtain a support boost.
Give Flowers on a Character’s Birthday
Buy flowers to celebrate a characters birthday at a cost of 200 gold, which is a really cheap investment.
Assign Students to Group Tasks
Support levels can also increase by pairing students up for group tasks. They will also earn experience in certain proficiencies depending on the type of task assigned.
You can cook a meal together with an ally at the cafeteria to increase support as well. Make sure to have the necessary ingredients to prepare a dish. Temporary stat boosts are also granted to your allies depending on the meal you cook together.
Sharing Meal with Students, Faculty Members, and Monastery Staff Members
Dining with students and other characters increases support levels. Remember to choose a dish that both of your guests like to boost the levels gained.
Host Tea Parties
You can invite a character to a tea party to increase support levels. It is important to choose a topic that they find interesting to gain significant boosts.
Give Students Gifts
Gifting students items that they love increases support levels. Be sure to familiarize yourself with their preferences to pick out the perfect present for them.
Return Lost Belongings
While exploring the monastery, you may pick up lost items on the ground. Returning them to their owners raises support levels as well. Again, you will need to know each character’s personality to return the item to its rightful owner.
Participate in Choir Practice
Support levels are also gained in choir practice. This can only be done once a day, so be sure to include them on your schedule.
Respond to Personal Notes at the Advice Box
Apart from participating at the cathedral, the player can also check the advice box to respond to personal notes of students, faculty members, and monastery staff members. Being familiar with their interests, likes, and dislikes will help the player pick the right response.
