Free company experience bonus can give up to 15% when it's active.

I think there's 3 levels of it so either 5, 10, or 15

But you only get the bonus if the free company has it activated

Likely the 10% one, as the 15% is limited to aetherial wheel stuff.

But it's only applied to direct mob kills. The vast majority of your exp will come from quests, roulette bonuses, and dungeon bosses, none of which are subject to any EXP bonus.

To clarify, armory bonus is between your own classes. It is for the battle classes that are below your highest battle class.

The free company action to boost exp is most likely rank 2, which is 10% bonus, but only for 24 hours when activated. Only 2 actions work at a time.

A FC has to make the grade III buffs and that takes 3 days for each one.

I saved up enough of them so my FC had two weeks of 2 G III buffs for the start of EW. Fun while it lasted.

Now we are back to G III EXPs on Sat & Sun.

FCs don't affect Armory bonus

I have a level 90, so my AB is pretty good. Between my friendship circlet, Brand New Ring, and earring I got my level 1 Gladiator to a level 46 PLD in one afternoon yesterday.

If you have a leveled squadron they can bring you Squadron Battle Manuals which give the same bonus as the GIII FC buff in the field. 2 hours only.

There are other FC G III buffs that squadrons can provide.
