Tactics Ogre: Reborn – How to Recruit Ravness?

Ravness Loxaerion is a unique addition to any party in Tactics Ogre Reborn since she can hold the frontline as a great tank while also buffing allies.

Having Ravness with the White Knight class makes her one of the best characters in the game.

However, she is only an optional character, and unlocking her is far from easy.

In this guide, I will explain step-by-step how to unlock Ravness in Tactics Ogre Reborn.

Step 1: Lawful Route & Balmamusa Battle

First, it’s essential to be on the Lawful route if you want to recruit Ravness. Then, during the first chapter and before the battle at Balmamusa, select to follow Leonar’s plan.

During the battle of Balmamusa, while the condition says to defeat every enemy, your goal is to defeat everyone except Ravness.

Make sure to keep her healed and take down every other enemy to progress to the next step.

Step 2: Talk After Rhea Boum & Complete Reisan Way Battle

During Chapter 2 of the Lawful route and right after the fight in Rhea Boum, you’ll need to use the Talk feature with Warren’s Report. Then, select ‘Ravness Loxaerion Captured’.

After selecting this option, you will be able to go to Reisan Way. There, your goal is to save Ravness during the battle. Make sure to keep healing her, and everything should be fine.

Step 3: Recruit Jeunan & Warren Report

Moving on to chapter 3, right after Denam claims Brigantys castle, you’ll need to recruit Jeunan after the battle against Hector.

From the available dialogue options, select the second one.

Now, access the Waren Report and select ‘Lord of Coritanae Missing’.

Final Step: Bahanna Highlands

For the final step, you’ll need to complete a variety of battles. Here’s every battle you need to complete.

  • Bahanna Highlands – Make sure to have Jeunan in your party and wait for a dialogue option to occur when the enemy, Roberval, is at around half HP. You need to wait until Jeunan says “I am sure by now that his father joins him.
    Then, and only then, you should kill Roberval.
  • Reisan Way & Coritanae – Nothing special here, simply complete these two battles following the story.
  • Bahanna Highlands – When victorious at Coritanae, you’ll unlock the opportunity to return to Bahanna Highlands for the final battle. This is a normal battle where you have to defeat all the enemies while attempting to keep Ravness alive.
    Make sure to bring your healers along and have all your units protect Ravness.

As long as you’ve managed to keep her alive during this battle, Ravness will join your party.
