Fire Emblem Fates Relationships

Fire Emblem Fates Relationships guide details everything you need to understand about strengthening your relationship with friendly characters and acquire max support stats:

Acquiring Maximum Support

Fighting Together
Needless to say, but the fastest method of acquiring max support is by pairing characters and have them fight together. This is a good idea because it also temporarily enhances their individual stats.

You can simply place them right next to one another, behind one another, or in any formation you deem good enough. Lastly, do note that characters who fight and win together bond stronger.

Using the Base
During Chapter #6 of the game, you will gain access to your castle which you will be able to visit in-between missions. The castle is a wonderful place to interact with other characters and strengthen your relationship with them.

To do it, all you need to do is to approach a character and simply speak with them. However, do note that the characters will change after every day, but there will remain some characters (with ! over them) with whom you would want to build your relationship with.

At several instances, your friendly characters will ask of you of an accessory which you can provide them with and it will strengthen your bond with them.

One neat little trick that you need to bear in mind is that you only need a single piece of accessory which you will be able to shuffle between different characters.

Inviting Allies Over
Early in the game, you will gain access to your private headquarters and the ability to invite friendly characters over.

However, you need to invite characters with a heart in front of their name. Another important thing to understand here is that this is long process.

Hot Baths
After progressing a little, you will gain the ability to install hot baths inside your base which you will be able to use in order to strengthen your relationship with ally characters.

In order to do this, you simply need to invite your desired character over and that is all.

After each battle in the game, you will have the option to engage in a Support Conversation with your friendly allies which will instantly improve your relationship.

You can also invite them to your private quarters in order to increase the chances of these conversations.
