Use sets of associated Heroes to earn extra Bonuses!
Eos is divided in dire conflict with two major Factions. Lucis Heroes fight alongside Noctis, Lunafreya, and their friends in hope of saving Eos from the wicked and wanton Niflheim Empire. There are also those who find themselves caught between the two Factions, pulled in either direction by personal connections or conflicts of interest - these Neutral entities may be the most important, as they could be the linchpin in winning the War For Eos. As the struggle swells, the time to choose a side is nigh!
Faction Bonuses allow you to earn extra benefits when using Heroes that belong to the same Faction - fight for good with Lucis Heroes, for evil with Niflheim Heroes, and customize your strategies with Neutral Heroes that can benefit either Faction! The benefits earned from Faction Bonuses apply to Party Encounter and War Combat!
Heroes belong to one of three Factions, and using all Heroes in a Party Encounter or a March from the same Faction will grant that Faction Bonus! Neutral Heroes qualify for Lucis and Niflheim Faction Bonuses.
As you assemble your Hero lineups, you’ll see the Faction Bonus Icon be filled as you select Heroes from the same Faction - once a Faction Bonus is complete, the Faction Bonus Icon will light up with that Faction’s color. You can also tap this Icon to view Faction Bonuses in-game while you are setting your lineups.
