Take on side quests

After chugging through the main story for a few hours, you’ll eventually unlock Side Quests. These are scattered across the map and offer you some impressive rewards — the most compelling of which is Grilla. So if you don’t mind putting your world-saving adventure on hold, helping out your fellow townsfolk is a great way to earn some cash.

Plant seasonal crops

Many crops in Harvestella can only be grown during a certain season. Not only does it make these crops rare, but it also makes them valuable. This includes the Lumpotato, which can only be grown in the Winter. Selling these seasonal items is an easy way to pull in some big bucks — but don’t forget to stockpile a few so you can cook beneficial meals for your adventures.

Upgrade your farm

Farm upgrades — purchased from the Renovator in Lethe — aren’t cheap. They often cost several thousand Grilla, but it’s in your best interest to pick up some of these farm upgrades as soon as possible. A big one for new players is the Kitchen Counter. This gives you the ability to cook meals with resources you’ve harvested, which can be sold for a significant amount of cash. Alternatively, meals can be used to help you dive deeper into dungeons and collect valuable resources without needing to head home due to low health or stamina.

Also, keep in mind that it’s not always in your best interest to buy seeds. These costly resources can frequently be found in the wild for free — and unless you’re a high-level player, it might be best to hold onto your cash.

Sell unwanted resources

While it can be useful to horde resources for cooking and crafting, don’t feel bad about selling them if you’re looking for fast cash. Unloading an entire inventory into your Shipping Box can easily fill your bank account. So when you’re out exploring, be sure to harvest resources from every node, treasure chest, and monster you come across.

Follow the main quest

As boring as this tip is, following the main quest is a great way to earn Grilla. Beyond introducing you to new Jobs, locations, and allies (which can all help you defeat enemies and loot valuable items), many quests will put you in contact with enemies and bosses that offer some lucrative rewards.

Fishing for profits

After unlocking the fishing skill (head to the General Store in Lethe), you’ll have access to an easy, endless stream of Grilla. Some fish are much more valuable than others, and with more than 50 species up for grabs, it can be a bit hit-or-miss. But if you’re bored of the regular grind, consider picking up a rod and heading to your nearest fishing hole.

Fire Emblem Engage bond levels: how to get max Bond Levels fast
Marth and ALear cross swords in Fire Emblem Engage.

Fire Emblem Engage has a lot of systems to keep track of. Even ignoring all the different combat mechanics, you have your level, class, Support Levels, equipment, and more to consider. One thing you shouldn't forget about is Bond Levels. Bond Levels are somewhat like Support Levels, only instead of other units, these bonds are between you and the Emblems you collect that contain the spirits of heroes from past games. Leveling up these Bond Levels will vastly increase your power, so here are the most efficient ways to reap those sweet rewards in Fire Emblem Engage.
What Bond Levels do

As mentioned, Bond Levels will greatly improve your character. Once you have increased your Bond Level enough with a specific Emblem, that unit will continue to learn new skills that they can keep even when you unequip that Emblem Ring. As such, you can then mix and match learning more skills from new Emblems as you increase their Bonds and then switch to new ones.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet TM Machine guide: How to make TMs
The TM Machine in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Learning moves in Pokémon games usually revolves around leveling up and evolving your trusty monsters. At certain levels, they will gain the ability to learn a new move but can only know so many at one time. There are some moves that are special, though, and can be given to Pokémon without them needing to level up. Technical Machines, or TMs, have been in Pokémon titles since the first-generation games Red and Blue. They are back for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, but with a twist.

The new method for acquiring TMs in Scarlet and Violet is called the TM Machine. Ignoring the redundancy of the name, this is a very crucial tool for trainers to get very familiar with on their adventures. It is the only way to give certain moves to your team and keep them in tip-top shape. There are hundreds of TMs in Scarlet and Violet, but if you don't master the TM Machine, you'll never get any of them. Here's a full breakdown of how it works.
