LIfe licences are required for jobs in Reveria which just means more bureaucracy.

Fantasy Life is an RPG developed by Level-5 and published by Nintendo (published by Level-5 in Japan) on the Nintendo 3DS where you can play the roles of twelve different Life paths from a lowly fisherman to a noble knight. I have made this guide which provides beginners tips, shows basic game controls, help on character progression, information about the many Life paths, the Gold Lunares Coin items and more. I will likely update this guide with new information or make different ones in the future.


Use Ctrl+F and then type in for example [LIF] to see more information about the various Life paths in Fantasy Life.

Beginner Tips [BEG]

Fantasy Life is all about using the different Life paths (jobs) to help you adventure, fight and create powerful new items. You are free just to play the game as a cook but to make the most of you time in Reveria it is recommended that players play as all the jobs. Unless if you know that you will be playing multiplayer a lot with a friend then it may be better to stick to only a few Life paths.

New players should start the game with any combat job: Paladin, Mercenary, Hunter or Magician. As soon as you can learn other jobs you should learn the three gathering jobs: Miner, Woodcutter and Angler. Now you can use your new skills to collect items for your chosen crafting jobs or to complete quests while adventuring.

Useful Combat Life Stats

  • Strength and Vitality is needed for a Paladin and Mercenary.
  • Strength and Dexterity is needed for a Hunter.
  • Intelligence and Focus is needed for a Magician.

Currencies [CUR]

Stars = Acquire enough of these and your rank in your current Life will rise.

Bliss = Gain enough Bliss and you’ll be able to keep pets in your room or have a mount at the stables. Pets can be took out adventuring while mounts can be ridden around Reveria. Flutter offers Bliss Bonuses, this can be used to get a pet, increase the size of your Bag and more.

Dosh = This is the main currency of Reveria. Use it to buy items, equipment and other things.

Character Progression [CHP]

Developing Your Skills

As you perform various actions, the skill bar will fill up. When the bar is full, the skill will level up which will increase its effectiveness. As these skill levels increase, you’ll be able to use better equipment, tools and more. The skill bars will fill quicker for skills that belong to your current life.

Increasing Ranks

Defeating enemies and completing various other tasks will give you experience points. When you have gained a  required number of points, your level will rise, increasing your HP and some status points that can be used improving your stats.


Each Life has ranks. By completing Challenges you’ll gain Stars. Once you’ve earned enough Stars, you will able to rank up. By ranking up, you will learn new Life specific techniques or recipes for crafting items. You may also receive extra rewards from your master or other support characters.

The Life ranks are as follows: Novice, Fledgling, Apprentice, Adept, Expert, Master, Hero, Legend and Legend+.


As you rank up, you’ll learn techniques relevant to your chosen Life. Combat Life paths will learn combat techniques, Crafters will learn new recipes, while Gatherers will learn techniques to help then when gathering materials.
