Character quotes: Brave gets too low/Faith gets too high c. Thank you's d. Legal mess I. Introduction Brave and Faith... perhaps the most annoying statistics in Final Fantasy Tactics. These measure the damage and percentages of certain attacks, as well as have their own effects; each with their own amount of endless questions. The rating while in battle is the one used by the game, not your base, or "after battle", stats. So, if you were affected by the Mediator's skill "Preach", and you had 50 Faith to begin with, the number applied would be 54. This goes on to saying that your "base" Brave and Faith are only for aesthetic reasons; meaning they don't mean anything in battle IF (and only IF) you raise or lower them (besides giving the first alteration the amount it has to either add to or subtract from). I know, it's something so clear and obvious, but I had to include it. If you happen to alter your Brave/Faith by four points in a battle, your base will go up by one. In general, your Brave and Faith tend to be more efficient when at higher numbers, meaning that you'd probably prefer 70 Faith over 50 Faith. The only reasons for lowering them are covered in their specific sections. Although the whole Brave and Faith system seems easy to understand, try to think again; a majority of the questions here [at the FFT main board] are about Brave and Faith (mixed in with the "Ramza can be a Dark Knight" and "FFT 2" topics ^_^). It really is a great system, albeit hard to understand. II.
