Inviting Friends To Tea Party

Unlocking Tea Parties in Fire Emblem Three Houses is just the beginning. Here’s how to make the most of them:

  1. Action Points: Inviting friends to your Tea Party consumes an action point each time. Use your action points wisely.
  2. Choosing Guests: Approach the character you want to invite, then select “invite to tea” from the menu. Ensure you have a good bond with them to invite them successfully.
  3. Building Bonds: You can’t invite characters right from the start. You need to reach a specific level in the game to unlock them. Strengthen your bond by buying gifts from visiting merchants, choosing positive dialogue responses, or finding lost items on the map.

By using these methods, you’ll maximize your Tea Party invitations and enjoy quality time with your favorite characters.

How Tea Time Works

When hosting a Tea Party in Fire Emblem Three Houses, consider these tips for a successful gathering:

  1. Tea Preferences: Each guest has specific tea preferences. Serve their favorite tea from your inventory to elicit a positive response.
  2. Conversation Topics: After serving tea, choose a conversation topic from the three provided. Opt for topics that align with the guest’s interests for a positive response.

Choosing the Perfect Conversation Topic

You don’t only have to offer the perfect cup of tea to your guests, rather; you need to have a good conversation too. Choose the topic according to your unit’s preference because messing up with the topic will make them leave early. 

Conversation Topics

To enhance your bond with your guests during Tea Time in Fire Emblem Three Houses, it’s crucial to choose conversation topics that align with their likes and dislikes:

  1. Three Chances: You’ll have three opportunities to engage in dialogue with your guest and select a topic that caters to their preferences.
  2. Avoid Disliked Topics: Picking two topics that your guest dislikes will result in the Tea Time ending with a message like “you don’t have much to talk about.”
  3. Personality Matters: Tailor your conversation to the personality of the character. For example, a dedicated knight like Leonie would appreciate topics related to warfare, while someone like Dimitri, committed to military service, prefers discussions on military equipment over gossip.
