Powerful accessories like Genji Gloves require more effort if you want them in your inventory. To get them, players are expected to gather 2,365 Renowns. This is a big number as players usually receive less from in-game activities.

After you possess 2,365 Renowns, you can visit the lady at Patron’s Whisper. This place is exclusive for items that Renown can purchase. The shop is located in The Hideaway. The area around the Alliant Reports stands to indicate the exact location.

To gather the big Renown amount mentioned above, players can involve themselves in any kind of activity listed below, where they farm Renown to buy Genji Gloves.

  1. Side Quest Completion: Participating in side quests is the most common way of Renown earning. They are highlighted by green markers on the map. Approaching these green indicators will initiate the quest. Players will receive Renowns as a reward for completion.
  2. Hunt Board challenged: Final Fantasy 16 includes 32 Notorious Marks to be defeated on the battlefield. The hunts appear on a Hunt Board, where you accept a challenge for engaging with a specific Mark. Killing these hunts will provide you with a significant amount of Renown. 
  3. Main Story Quest Completion: Apart from the side missions, a few story quests provide players with Renown. These missions may not appear in any sequence as they are randomized.

Note that 2000+ Renown is very big and will take a lot of time to gather them. Try to indulge yourself in all the notified activities as necessary.

My Tips For Using Genji Gloves

After finishing the game once, you will unlock the New Game Plus mode. A fun fact about Genji Gloves is that the damage boost increases to 10%. Moreover, using them in battle makes combat easier than you think.

While you have them on, you can try different combinations with your weapons that maximize the damage intake of your opponents.

For instance, I tried equipping two weaponry attachments simultaneously, enabling my character to submit two hits to the enemy in a single blow. Combining this with the given damage boost can enhance your combat experience so your enemies suffer.

Another helpful combination that I recommend is Genji Gloves with the Master’s Scroll Relic. This pair will let you strike eight hits on your opponent in succession. Applying this technique with any late-game weapon, such as Lightbringer or Ragnarok, can hurt your enemies.
