Currently I'm in chapter 9 or so and already there are two or three paralogue battles and about 6 quest battles, but only 2 battle activity points. Most months have 3 free days, so and since every month seems to bring more paralogues I would have to do 2 - 3 months of doing nothing but battles to clear them. But then I'd miss out on gardening, dining and regular quests.

So how does one keep up with all the battle quests without sacrificing normal activities?

1 Answer 1


According to a side quest guide there are only 5 battle quests by chapter 9 which would mean you did 0 of them when you were given them. These will presumably be unavailable to complete post time skip. Some of your paralogues should have expiration dates after the the time skip (if you did not do these particular ones already). What I would do is make sure you are actually doing battle quests and not the optional battles that are just there for exp/gold/materials.

I was able to finish all of the battle side quests pretty easily doing 2 battle days per month. In the earlier part of the game you only need to do one exploration day since you do not have enough professor energy to burn through all of your students motivation for the month. I have only done a Golden Deer playthrough so I'm not sure if there are wildly different amounts of side quests in other routes.

To me this really just looks like mismanagement of free days but it can still be salvaged. If you take 1 free day a month to explore and ensure that all of your students have high motivation, you can finish all of your current quests. Make sure you check the expiration dates of your paralogue missions to see if they can be done post time skip.

In the future, if you do another playthrough or decide to restart your current one, try to follow a formula of 1-2 exploration days, 2-3 battle days, 0-1 seminar days (Only do a seminar day if you have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do on that day), 0 rest days as you shouldn't need the Sword of the Creator.

TLDR: Check paralogue battle expiration dates and only do one exploration day a month the rest battle days and you may just make it through all of your quests.

  • I did prioritize paralogues, as they had the expiration dates, but that prevented me from doing normal battle quests as I was doing 1 battle day 2 explore days a months to raise the professor points as that seemed like a more important thing long-term. But I can try doing 1 explore 2 battle days for a while

  • To some degree your idea is correct but there is not enough to do on the second exploration day unless there is a special event that day. The best way to grind professor exp is to fish on days when the Fistfuls of Fish event is present. This is more productive if you have done the battle quest to unlock the 2 merchants one of which sells fishing bait. 2 Exploration days is much better later on when you need to refresh morale since items do not respawn until the next month. It is very good to get to the professor level that unlocks 2 battle points per free day which you have now.
