USEFUL EQUIPMENT

Although not vital to progress through the game these pieces of equipment will help make power-leveling or grinding for valuable spoils (required for ultimate weapons) far more effective. Please note though that some items are not obtainable until post-story and do not upgrade the items listed as you will lose the effects.



Requirements

Reached the point in the story that unlocks the item (this will be mentioned on each piece).



Preperations

Make sure Vanille has learnt Death under her Synergist role.
