Prior to participating in reive battles, obtaining the Reive unity key item from the Scaredy-Cats quest is highly recommended.

With this key item in possession, periodically throughout the reive battle, players will receive a message messages will come up giving certain optional objectives for players to fulfill noted as "Reive momentum score."

These can include one or more of the following:

  • Physical attack
  • Magic attack
  • Damage taken
  • Monster vanquishing
  • HP recovery
  • Attack success
  • Resistance success
  • Enhancing support
  • Enfeebling support
  • Raising KO'ed players

Once players collectively successfully perform an objective action to a certain threshold, a "Momentum bonus" will be received from the following list by all participating players and a new objective will be chosen to replace the completed objective:

  • HP Recovery (to full)
  • MP Recovery (to full)
  • TP Recovery (to 300%)
  • Status ailment recovery
  • Stoneskin
  • Ability cast recovery (including SP abilities)
  • Increased maximum MP and HP

Note that momentum bonuses do not directly impact the player's EXP/bayld calculation, but the effects are helpful in achieving higher evaluation values. Furthermore, players will not receive momentum scores until two or more players have engaged the environmental object. This includes instances where players have left a reive and mobs have become passive. However, if a second player simply passes through without engaging the environmental object, no momentum score will appear.
