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.

The best armor in Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth
Cloud from Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

Just like in Remake, you only have one valuable armor slot per character in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. Deciding on what you want to put there is more complicated than you think, since each piece of armor has multiple factors that determine how effective it will be, and you may want to prioritize different things for different characters. New armor will become available as you go deeper into the world of Gaia, and you can even make some yourself with the new Transmutation system, so comparing and contrasting them all can be a major chore. We get it, you're just a merc looking to get the job done, so let us worry about figuring out the best armors so you can just put them on and get back to the action.
The best armor in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth
Armor in Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth have three major factors to consider when you're equipping some: the physical defense rating, magic defense rating, and Materia slots. The best armor will either focus heavily on one of these or have a strong balance of them all. Here are our picks.
Garm Bangle

The Garm Bangle is an amazing piece of physical-focused armor that becomes available once you hit the Nibel region. It has a fantastic 59 rating for regular defense, aplus a decent 28 for magic defense to keep you from being totally vulnerable to spells. Offensively, it has two pairs of linked Materia slots plus a spare, so you can still make plenty of killer magic combos for your mages.

Best Bubble Gems in Foamstars

The major focus of Foamstars is on its characters and their abilities. Once you find one you like, it isn't obvious that there's a bit more you can do to tweak them outside of unlocking new cosmetics. Bubble Gems are hard to come by, but offer passive bonuses to whichever character you equip them to. However, you don't get them for free, and each character can only hold three at a time. If the process all seems a little muddled to you, we're here to wipe away any confusion and explain the best Bubble Gems to use in Foamstars.
How Bubble Gems work

We need to begin with a quick rundown of how Bubble Gems actually work in Foamstars. Bubble Gems are basically random rolls you can make by spending Energy Stones, which you can only get either by hitting certain level milestones (5 and 10) or by going through the battle pass. The current pass only rewards Energy Stones at tier 41, so reaching that point will be quite a grind.
