Completing battles in specific ways grant you bonuses that give you extra cash, JP, and EXP.
Overkill is earned by dealing a powerful killing blow to a weakened enemy and nets you an EXP bonus. Untouched is earned by not taking any damage during a battle and nets you a money bonus. Domination is earned by killing an enemy in a single hit and nets you a JP bonus. Break is earned by breaking an enemy during battle and nets you an EXP bonus.
Certain skills will allow you to make more money from battles!
- Grows on Trees: (Merchant passive skill) Enemies drop more money after battle (unlocks after getting 4 job skills)
- Collect: (Merchant combat skill) Battle skill that takes money from enemies. The lower the enemy’s HP the more you get.
This is a simple way to maximize your funds and minimize your expenditures. Have some old equipment? Sell it. Find some duplicate items from monster drops or treasure chests? Sell them too. Stumble across some goods that don’t have any other purpose other than to be sold? Well, of course, you should sell THAT stuff!
