Materia And Accessories Required For The Farm

Before you take on this farm, we will recommend equipping these accessories and materias, as some of them are required if you wish to obtain the maximum amount of Hero Drinks in the least amount of time possible.


We will recommend equipping these materias before starting your farm run.

  • Mug or Steal 
  • Hammer Punch
  • Health Potions
  • Soma

The Mug or Steal materia is going to be the backbone for this farm as without this materia, getting a considerable amount of Hero Drinks in such a short time is simply not possible in Crisis Core Reunion. As for the Hammer Punch, we will recommend using it to finish off your enemies quickly. The other two Materia can be skipped if you are confident in your abilities, but we will recommend bringing them just in case. 


Once you are done with obtaining all the appropriate materias, shift your attention to obtaining these accessories.

  • Brigands Gloves
  • Mog’s Amulet
  • Adaman Bangle
  • Sprint Shoes

Players will need the Brigands Glove as it offers 100% steal, and since you will be stealing the Hero Drink. Equipping these gloves is highly recommended. The Mog’s Amulet will shift Zack’s attention to stealing the Hero Drinks only. The Adaman Bangle accessory will break your HP limit, thus allowing you to have more HP at a time. And finally, the Sprint Shoes will increase your sprint by 20 and make you immune to the “Stop” status.

How To Farm The Hero Drink

The Hero Drink is used in materia fusion as it gives the new materia the effect of boosting the Attack stat by 1. It can be acquired after defeating either the Master Blade or Iron Claw. It can also be acquired from chests or given as a reward after completing a certain mission, but here we will only be listing the quickest ways to farm them.

Method 1

Players who are looking to farm a considerable amount to Hero Drinks should first unlock the mission M9-3-6. As you start the mission, we will recommend avoiding all combat and heading straight to the location that we have pointed out in the picture below.

  • Proceed to the bridge area and engage enemies, ensuring you have the necessary materias and accessories.
  • Face two Iron Claw enemies, use the steal materia to acquire Hero Drinks mid-battle.
  • After stealing, enter battle stance and execute a hammer punch for 99,999 damage.
  • Be cautious of timing; stock up on health potions and Somas to manage HP and AP.
  • Defeat the Iron Claws, head to the bridge, and repeat the strategy for additional Hero Drinks

Method 2

  • The second method involves a late-game mission with a similar strategy.
  • Replace Hammer Punch with Costly Punch in materia.
  • Replace Soma with High Jump materia.
  • Switch Brigands Gloves with Ziedrich and Sprint Shoes with Super Ribbon in accessories.
  • Costly Punch and High Jump are powerful moves for dealing massive damage.
  • Ziedrich provides stat bonuses and protection against various elements.
  • Super Ribbon prevents all ailments, enhancing Zack’s defense.

Once you have obtained the required pieces of accessories, start the mission M9-6-3 and head to the location that is shown in the picture below.
