How to increase Fondness (Intimacy)

Last Updated:
Final Gear is a mech-based strategy gacha RPG boasting a large roster of collectible pilots and customizable mechs. Resource management is a staple in most games, particularly the ones that require leveling up and improving your units. You can even give gifts to your pilots to increase their intimacy towards you, providing you with rewards and even a chance to Oath (Marry) them. In our Final Gear Fondness (Intimacy) Guide, we will discuss how to increase the Fondness level of your pilots.

Fondness measures the pilot’s closeness to you, the leader/player. This can only be increased by giving them gifts. Every time your bond level increases, you’ll get a bond reward. This is true for all pilots, regardless of rarities. You can increase a pilot’s bond level up to LV10; after reaching that maximum bond level, you’ll have to use an Engagement Ring to marry a pilot and provide her with permanent stat boosts and an Oath skin (if applicable).

Gifts will come in different types and rarities, with the SSR ones providing the most amount of Intimacy. You can collect gifts from the following:
* Completing timed Expeditions (Forum Requests)
* Complete Daily and Weekly Requests
* Collect them from active pilots you’ve assigned in Felix (home base) facilities.
* Rewards from the Intelligence Room in Felix.

You can give gifts to your pilot by accessing the Pilots menu on the left side of the home screen, select the pilot you want to give gifts to, then tap the Fondness button under Details tab. From there, you’ll see all available gifts in your possession. The pilot’s preferred gift will be automatically sorted to the top of the list. Giving them their preferred gift will allow them to receive more points (+25%).

After increasing your Fondness Rating (Bond Level), you’ll get the corresponding Bond Reward. The bond reward is the same on all pilots, regardless of rarity. As such, it’s worth leveling up the intimacy of pilots that you don’t use up to LV5 where you can collect 200 crystals from each of them.

Gifts can be hard to come by and will require more as their Fondness level goes up. Furthermore, gifts will be shared among different pilots so I recommend giving them to the pilots you really like until you reach a certain Fondness level (like until you obtain the Crystal reward).
