This is one of the early-game mechanics to explore along with our other beginner tips.

Here’s how to increase colony affinity levels. You’ll need it for this long, long JRPG odyssey.

How to Increase Colony Affinity Levels

These are the three main ways to increase colony affinity levels. They don’t necessarily need to be number one on your priority list, but they build relationships between the Ouroboros gang and their allies. They also offer valuable bonuses and rewards.

Talk to anyone with a star

While exploring the colonies, you may encounter NPCs with stars next to their yellow speech bubbles. These usually mean they have something new to tell you. Every time you talk to someone with a starred speech bubble, it will increase your affinity with the colony a bit.

Complete quests for colonization

Quests are the main way to increase colony affinity, especially since they lead to other ways to increase affinity levels. NPCs have more to say after you complete these quests, and they sometimes lead to new quests.

Yellow speech bubbles, information icons and “Attention!” Finding quest information for this is easy. Warnings related to them. If you see any of these indicators, travel close enough to hear the conversation. It is usually about a problem that the colony is trying to solve. When the conversation ends, it either pops up as a new topic for discussion or signals that there is more than one conversation to listen to (eg 1/2). Once you have heard all the conversations about a particular topic, it should be available to discuss in a camp or canteen.

Go to camp or canteen to discuss. Sometimes, the subject leads to bonus XP. Other times, it will activate a search. Complete the quest and it should raise your affinity level with that colony.

Complete Collectopedia cards

NPCs sometimes ask for items on a Collectopedia card. These “grocery list” requests usually mean collecting items like monster drops from specific areas. These are not essential for completion but can help increase affinity levels and collect valuable items You can view the rewards for each from your Quests menu (see the “Card Icon” tab on the right).

You can collect all the items for a request without realizing it. If a card has a small pouch next to it, it means you have all the items you need to complete it. After that, all you have to do is hold A to claim your reward. You can even complete Collectopedia cards multiple times. Just be aware that rewards aren’t as lucrative the second time around.

So, why are colony affinity levels important? Well, if the story doesn’t intrigue you, maybe you’ll get a bonus.

Affinity bonuses grant passive abilities to your party in exchange for helping colony members. The affinity chart tells you what level you need to unlock a certain bonus. You can check what these bonuses do in the Affinity Bonuses tab of the party skill menu.

Many colonies offer the same bonus, which stacks to increase the bonus effect. Stacking can come in handy, especially for more valuable skills. My Shiny-Hunter skill, which increases how often you get rare drops, is only 0.5 percent. It will get higher, though!
