    Since people keep on asking questions about the mechanics around 7* and STMR's, I thought about putting together a little compendium containing all this info.

    1) 7* units.

    Here is a video by @kurizu showing the process you need to go through in JP to get a 7* unit. Below you will find a detailed written explanation of this same process.



    What you need to get them:
    • 2 copy of the same rainbow unit, one of which NEEDS to be at 6* lv 100, the other can be at any rarity and level (only rainbows can be awakened to 7*);
    • 3M gil to awaken the 6* lv 100 copy to a 7* lv 101;
    • according to reddit, 44,653,250 exp to level up your newly obtained 7* unit to lv 120 (maximum level for a 7* unit). In Jp, where you can fuse cactuars together, this corresponds to 10 maxed out King Metal Cactuars (each of this can hold 4.5M points).
    How you get them:
    • let's call A the copy of your rainbow unit that is at 6* lv 100 and B the other copy that can be at any level or rarity. B needs to be unlocked and not in any party;

    • there will be a new option to turn any rainbow unit into a 7* awakening crystal for that rainbow unit (called "Unit Name's Prism" in the GL version of the game). So you will turn B into such an awakening crystal, losing the unit B. On this occasion, unless you already mastered the TMR progress of B (in which case, you will only get the 7* awakening crystal), you will also get a "crystalized TMR-specific moogle" (called "Prism Moogle" in the GL version of the game). This is a new kind of moogle that retains the TMR progress that B had and can be fed with regular or TMR-specific moogles (of the same TMR as the crystalized one) to bring its TMR progress to 100%. When this happens, you obtain the TMR that was frozen with the moogle. In other words, this is a way for you to not loose the opportunity of getting the TMR of B when you turn it into an awakening crystal, nor of loosing its TMR progress. This "crystalized moogle" will take one of your unit inventory slot and - similarly to regular moogles - can't be brought to any battle;

    • you can now use the 7* awakening crystal into A to awaken A to 7* lv 101. This is when you will need those 3M gil.
    So, you start with 2 dupes of the same rainbow and you end up with one 7* unit at lv 101 and, in case the dupe you sacrificed for the awakening did not have their TMR mastered, with a "crystalized TMR moogle".


    2) Trust Mastery Ability.

    These are abilities that a 7* unit gets when they are equipped with their own TMR. In most cases these are passive abilities that boost the unit's stats (by increasing one or more stats by a certain percentage when equipped with their own TMR) or LB (by increasing damage or by modifying it to do something extra with respect to their base version, such as breaking). Sometimes they also grant the unit some active abilities, as in Trance Terra's case: she gets the ability of 4-casting some of her abilities at the beginning (first turn) of battle (this resets if she dies). Equipping multiple copies of their own TMR to a 7* unit will trigger possible passives associated to their TM ability only once.


    3) STMR (Super Trust Mastery Reward).


    What is it?

    This is a new tier of Trust Mastery (called precisely STMR) which is only obtainable from 7* units. When awakened to 7*, a rainbow unit will get a STMR progress bar (from 0% to 100%), ON TOP OF its regular TMR progress bar. Unlike for the latter, you can NOT raise a unit's STMR progress by bringing that unit to a battle nor by feeding it with regular TMR moogles. STMR's obtained from 7* units can be used by any other unit and a 7* does not gain any bonus from equipping their own STMR.

    How do you obtain a STMR?
    • You need one 7*-awakened rainbow unit (your "main" unit, the one you want to keep and obtain the STMR of) and then either a dupe 7* of the same unit or two further copies of the same rainbow unit at 5* or 6* (all these copies will disappear in the process of getting the STMR). You then simply fuse the copies into your main 7*-awakened rainbow.

    • If you fuse a dupe 7* into your main 7*, you will immediately obtain one STMR from your main 7* and your TMR progress will increase by 5% plus any other TMR % accumulated by the dupe 7* you fused (unless the dupe's TMR was mastered already, in which case your main 7* only gets a 5% increase in their TMR progress). You will also get a 50% ALL TM Moogle.

    • If you fuse two non-7* copies of the same rainbow unit as your main 7* unit, each of them will net you 50% STMR progress and 5% TMR progress (in addition to any other TMR % accumulated by them only if, again, they did not master their TMR already). Upon fusing your first copy you will receive the 50% ALL TM Moogle (but you will NOT receive another one when you fuse the second non-7* copy).

    • In both cases, if your main 7* unit already mastered their TMR, you will lose the TMR progress accumulated by the copies you fused into them (you don't get any "crystalized moogle" or anything like that when fusing dupes into a 7* unit).
    To exemplify. Suppose you want to get the STMR of your 7* Tidus. You can do this either by fusing into him another 7* Tidus OR two copies of Tidus at rarity 5* or 6*. In either cases, you will receive one Tidus' STMR, one 50% ALL TM Moogles and your main 7* Tidus will get 10% more TMR progress, on top of any other TMR % retained by the copies you fused into him, unless his TMR was already mastered.


    Hope this helps! Please, if any of you spot some mistakes or you think there is something else I should add, let me know!

    At least one of the level is faulty. I won't say which cause I'm no specialist of 7*, but this ain't coherent :)
    I'll read more in depth later when I'll have some more time ;)

    It's ok! I just saw more threads coming up on this and decided to take actions :D Please, by any means let me know if you have stuff to add/correct. If you are planning to do a video, you can just post it here as a reply and I can also add it to the OP giving you credits :)

    Something I was wondering, has anyone tested to see if you fused a 6* Tidus with full enhancements onto another 6* Tidus, does his enhancements get wiped? If the fused unit doesn't have enhancements, would they transfer over? Or, perhaps, are they lost in the void forever?

    Something to make sure you're planning correctly for the future and not spending the crysts that you could potentially lose.

    Fusing doesnt pass anything to other unit except for experience and trust mastery.... it doesnt matter whether its for stmr or regular tmr... Answering different way... if unit that is fused into other had enhancements its your loss.

    I haven't tested that personally, but it should work as for potted stats: everything is lost forever. If your dupe copy has potted stats, once you fuse it into the main copy that should be awakened, the potted stats don't carry over and you lost them.

    @kurizu Of course, you can also just open your own thread with your video(s) in it, if you prefer so and I will just link that thread to this one, so as to keep things linked. This way you can get your deserved likes :D

    Nah, I am not fan of doubling informations, better to upgrade one than making more ruckus around it.

    So I have three take aways from this... other than this was a lot of work and thank you very much Arna.

    1 ) For some of those 5* base units out there I was thinking to use @7*, it seems I should wait until 7* to get their regular tmr. So far I believe that's only really Ayaka and Loren off the top of my head. Those tmr, while great for some, are redundant or minor upgrades.

    2) For those of you with 4x dupes (I have 3x of a few, no 4x), you'll probably want to upgrade both to 7* and then fuse for the STMR. There are missions that give rewards... although I do not know what any of the rewards are.

    3) The 50% moogles are true!
