The best accessories in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is filled with baddies to take out, so you’ll need to be as prepared as possible when it’s time to face off against them. As such, you’ll be updating your equipment frequently throughout your adventure to apply upgraded pieces of gear. In addition to weapons and bangles, you can equip each character with a single accessory to customize their skill set in battle, and it’s worth swapping these out occasionally depending on the upcoming fight.

Though the best accessory for each character will largely depend on how you’ve built them and what role you have them playing in your party, there are still some accessories that we feel are generally useful and tend to be worth keeping around to make battles go more smoothly.

Note that many of the accessories below are not available until late in the game, so we’ve included their lesser counterparts so you can make sure you keep them around until they become upgradeable.

Safety Bit

Safety Bit is an immensely useful accessory that grants immunity to some of the game’s most detrimental status effects: Instant Death, Stone, and Petrify. Always equip these to at least one or two characters when entering into a battle against foes who regularly apply these status effects to make your life much, much easier.

Full-Throttle Wristguards

Full Throttle Wristguards are the best accessory for characters who are going heavy on physical damage, as it grants them 10% strength alongside an extra 500 HP to aid in getting up close and personal. If you haven’t reached the point where you can upgrade to this yet, go for some Power Wristguards or Hi-Power Wristguards in the meantime.

Riot Vest

Riot Vest sports a 10% vitality increase alongside an extra 500 HP, making it a fantastic choice for tanky characters who stay in the thick of it and soak up damage while teammates unleash hell. A Bulletproof Vest or Survival Vest will do a pinch while you wait to reach a point in the game where this higher-tier option becomes available.

Sorcerer’s Earrings

Sorcerer’s Earrings are the best choice for characters focused on magic damage thanks to a substantial 10% magic power increase and extra 6 MP. However, as it’s a late-game item, don’t sleep on its lower-end cousins, Earrings or Platinum Earrings, in the meantime.

Healing Materia Earrings

Healing Materia Earrings allow you to use Cure, Cura, and Curaga without taking up a materia slot with a Healing materia. This can be helpful for your primary healer/buffer character, particularly if you’re using other gear that limits their available materia slots or have them decked out with other important materia and can’t spare a slot.

Revival Earrings

Revival Earrings grant a character one use of Auto-Life, meaning that they’ll be automatically revived upon death. However, the accessory will break after use, so it’s really best suited for incredibly challenging encounters with enemies who use abilities like Doom. It shouldn’t be kept on anyone long-term.

Like the best RPGs, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth gets sidequests right
The mayor of Under Junon in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

Among its many highlights, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth makes simple sidequests a lot more engaging than I had expected. Take an early-game sidequest called When Words Won’t Do. On a surface level, it’s a simple escort mission where players must get a dog from Under Junon to Crow’s Nest unscathed. I did not initially have high hopes for this sidequest due to the poor reputation of escort missions; thankfully, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth defied that fate. To make this optional content more worthwhile, Square Enix gave it a strong narrative backbone.

When Words Won’t Do is actually a story about parents struggling to let go of their kids. Under Junon’s mayor sends players on this quest to help her son and unborn grandchild, and Barrett wonders if he’ll ever be able to let Marlene go during the mission. That’s thematically fitting for an escort mission where you can’t keep something out of your sight.

All Chocobo Gear in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth
Chocobo Gear

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth gives chocobos perhaps their biggest role in a mainline entry ever, as you'll be using them to traverse every region of the game. Not only do their special abilities help you navigate the world, but various pieces of gear that you can purchase for them can ensure they look good doing it. Even better, this gear aids your chocobo in races so that you stand a better chance at placing in the top spot. Here's all of the Chocobo Gear in the game and how you can round it up.
All Chocobo Gear and how to get it
Most Chocobo Gear can be purchased at tack shops, which are primarily located around chocobo stables. As you progress through the game, new pieces of gear will become available at any tack shop, so you won't need to backtrack to get fresh pieces. Keep in mind, however, that there are some pieces that can only be earned by competing in chocobo races at the Golden Saucer.

To purchase Chocobo Gear, you'll need golden plumes. These are primarily earned from finding and repairing chocobo stations throughout each region, though you'll also get one when catching new chocobos while progressing through the story.
