There are more than a few activities in Fire Emblem Three Houses in which you can participate in. Each of the Fire Emblem Three Houses Free Days Activities grants you specific rewards that will help you in gameplay.

Fire Emblem Three Houses Free Days Activities

Here I will explain each of the Fire Emblem Three Houses Free Days Activities, how to unlock them, how to participate and compete, and what rewards you will earn from each of these activities.

Dining

In your free time in Fire Emblem Three Houses you can visit the dining hall to join students and faculty members. There are two dining events in which you can participate, Today’s Special and Full Menu.

Today’s Special has specific conditions that need to be fulfilled. On the other hand, Full Menu is a standard dining event. To participate in either of the dining events in Fire Emblem Three Houses, just talk to the Dining staff NPC in the dining hall.

Today’s Special

As I mentioned earlier, Today’s Special has specific conditions in order to participate like having one student or a faculty member dine with Byleth. Fulfill the requirement and you will be allowed to participate in Today’s Special dining event.

This event results in a better relationship with the ones that you chose to take with you. Also, no ingredients are required for this dining event.

Full Menu

In this dining event, you don’t need to fulfill any specific requirements. Just have the ingredients for the chosen meal and select with whom you want to dine with.

You can choose students to boost their morals, especially, the ones who are low on motivation. However, the bonds and motivation gains will be lower compared to Today’s Special.

Tea Party

This particular Free Day activity in Fire Emblem Three Houses requires you to celebrate birthdays in the monastery. Not only that, you need to select the proper topic of conversation for the character whose birthday you are celebrating.

Once the activity is done, you’ll receive support boost and possibly charm, it depends on your performance in the activity. But first, you need to unlock the activity.

How To Unlock the Tea Party

To unlock this activity, you need to complete a quest during the Blue Sea Moon. The following are the guidelines on how to acquire the quest and complete it.

Go to the stables.
Talk to Ferdinand and accept the quest.
Deliver the Elegant Tea set.

Complete the quest and you’ll unlock Tea Party event and you just need to host it.

How To Host Tea Party

To host the Tea Party event, you need to gather ingredients like fetching tea leaves. There are different types of tea, each suitable for a certain character and the ingredients can be acquired by completing quests, purchasing from merchants or exploring the monastery.

Sweet-Apple Blend 2 Favored by common folk and nobles alike.

Once you have decided the flavor, gather the ingredients, it’s time to host the Tea Party. During the party, you’ll have three chances to speak and you need to choose the corret answer for support boost. Two wrong answers and the guest will lost interest and party will just end there.

However, if you choose the right answers all three times, you’ll have a fourth chance. Again, you need to choose the right topic of conversation. Once the tea party ends, you and the guest will support boost and charm depending on your performance. Even if you fail, you’ll get some support boost and charm.

Perfect Tea Party Bonus

If you manage to entertain the guest you’ll get two additional features: “Changing the Camera Angle” and “Giving A Gift”.

Even if you have given a gift to the guest during the party, you can send an additional gift. This will result in you earning support boost easily. However, changing the camera angle grants no support boost or charm.

Fishing

Fishing is another free time activity in Fire Emblem Three Houses. You can catch fish used in different dishes in the canteen or you can just sell it.

Head to the fishing pond and talk to the fishkeeper and start fishing. You first need to select bait for fishing and you need to be mindful as specific bait attracts specific fish.

After that cast your line and when the fish bites you need to tug the rod. If you do it right, the fish will lose some its stamina and once it’s completely depleted the fish will be caught. However, if you don’t tug it properly, you’ll lose your stamina.
