    Farming Trust Master for units is very VERY tedious and time consuming. However for those that have strong TM rewards, it can be worth. Most of the time having strong TM rewards can make anything in the game pretty trivial. The way to increase Trust is to grind it out or to have multiple copies of the same unit and fusing them. By fusing the same unit into each other you gain 5% Trust. That means if you want Excalibur from Cecil's TM reward, you would need 20 copies of Cecil.

    To gain Trust without fusing -
    Go to the dungeon circled on this screenshot -
    [​IMG]

    Then run (either works actually) -
    [​IMG]

    After each run there is a chance that the units you used to run the dungeon will gain 0.1% toward their Trust Master rewards.

    Effective ways to grind it out is to have a party made up of TMs you want to grind. As I stated above you can fuse like units into each other for Trust. You can use this to your advantage. Say you got 3 copies of Cecil chasing for a certain unit. You can put all the Cecils into a party and grind Trust using this method. Doing so, Cecil 1 gained 10% Trust, Cecil 2 gained 3% and Cecil 3 gained 7%. You can fuse 2 and 3 into 1 and by doing so Cecil 1 will gain 10% Trust from the already accumulated Trust by 2 and 3, as well as another 10% from fusing 2 like units for a total of 20%. This will give Cecil 1 30% Trust total (10% + 20%).

    Notable TM rewards so far -
    Cecil - Excalibur (120 ATK - Light Element - Large Sword)
    Zidane - Dual Wield
    Miyuki - Sakura Fubuki (98 ATK - Katana)
    Tina/Terra - Ultima (280% Mag + 25% ignore Res)
    Kain - Gungnir (90 ATK - Spear)
    Bartz - Double Hand
    Luna - Barrage (4 attacks at 80% ATK for a total of 320%)
    Exdeath - Holy (230% MAG)
    Kuja - Flare (200% MAG)
    Vaan - Maximilian Armor (62 DEF - Heavy Armor)
    Shantotto - +30% MAG materia
    Rakshasa - Holy Sword (Spellblade 230% ATK/MAG)
    Dean - Bioga Sword (Spellblade 180% ATK/MAG)
    Russel - Zengiri (If someone knows the eng name please let me know) (140% AoE ATK)
    Medius - Growth Egg (1.5 EXP)
    Seriatsu - Miracle Shoes (Auto Protect/Shell/Regen)

    Right now this is the most efficient way to gain Trust. In the future, they will add Trust Master moogles, that when fused to any unit, that unit will gain 10% Trust. But this feature is way down the road for us as it was a rather recent addition to the JP version of the game.

    Np.
    Time consuming rather than difficult. I don't have any TM rewards on either of my JP account except for the 1*-2* unit TMs which are rather lack luster to say the least lol.

    Huh, never thought about having someone at 100% trust being there for the loot. I guess it's a good idea as long as the character contributes something to the party. just my 2 cents though lol

    Is there any benefit to getting 100% trust on a character before awakening them? Do they get a buffed version if they are awakened with it maxed?

    0.1% that's 1k times needed to get it to 100% at least since it's not all certain! Too much work, 84 hours continously doing Earth Shrine over and over again! lol... maybe I'll try it after this weekend pampa event. BTW still don't get how to equip TM to another unit, if someone can explain please, thx!

    It's 10k, not 1k. You get 0.1% every 10 fights. (You actually average 0.11% I've tested it by charting 300 fights). So that's 10k battles, 50k minutes for NRG. 833 hours, 70 days if you do it for 12 hours a day.

    I think most people get the really good TMs after about 5 or 6 months.

    Fastest way to level up right now requires 5 of the same unit. I'm currently grinding barrage using 4 bow wielding slanks. Golbez says these hoes ain't loyal. Hopefully I'll pull 1 more. It takes an average of 45 seconds per each cycle using 1 NRG at earth shrine entrance which includes 2 battles + flipping through screens. If you're lucky and you somehow pulled 5 Golbez (I currently have 3 Golbez and will work on Meteor next), it will take you 20 hours of actual grinding time factoring in -20% for each units contributing an additional 5% when the fusing takes place. Realistically, it's not that hard burning through 100 NRG (75 minutes) on earth shrine entrance each day even with a full time job like myself. This will take you 16 days using 5 units, 21.25 days using 4, 30 days using 3, 47.5 days using 2 and a whopping 100 days if you're TM grinding using 1 unit. Always TM grind using 5 units even if you have to mix others into the group. Preferably the next unit/s you'll be working on. This is just my 2 cent. Dammit I feel like I just wasted 30 minutes of my time. Hopefully this helps someone..

    Let's hope Gumi inboxes everyone a bunch of Trust Moogles by accident.

    Im TM grinding 5-Golbez at three star, I used a trust moogle on my 5 star putting him at 28.8%, that plus the auto 25% from the 5-3* is 53.8, not too bad but grinding is so boring. Currently my 5 other Golbez have (4.8,4.9, 5.3, 4.6, 5.3). Not that anyone cares, just talking bout what I'm working on. Then Im off to farm Ice and Fire Megacryst to make me a bunch of Hero Rings. Just pulled CoD. Then Im going to Put meteor on Kefka. That'll be 6 Hero Rings for WoL, Kefka, and CoD. not too bad I think. My team is almost exactly like yours Mikazuki, but I don't have Chizuru. Maybe Ill use Gilbert or Hayate. Havent decided. Also I didnt really want the rabbits foot but now that I have CoD I figure she is really the only one that would be good on. until my hero rings come in lol.
