Why Should I Nationalize Baths?
While it may seem like a small thing, being able to take baths at the Bell Hotel for free is something you need to take advantage of as soon as possible for a number of reasons.
1: You can freely level up your bathing skill
That’s right, you can improve your bathing skills by taking baths at the Bell Hotel.
The reason you’ll want to max this skill out is that it increases your maximum HP, RP, and vitality. Once your bath times are free, you can max out this skill in no time.
2: You can level up your other skills without stressing over finances
The more important reason you’ll want to nationalize baths as soon as possible is that it’s essential for grinding skill levels.
Forging, crafting, and cooking are skills you’ll need to be leveling up to be able to take on the toughest enemies in Rune Factory 4.
It’ll take ages for you to get these levels up if you’re limited by how much RP you have.
After all, your fridge can only stock up on so much Strawberry Milk for recovery.
If your baths are free, you won’t need to worry about your spending on multiple trips to the Bell Hotel baths throughout the day.
So this is worth getting just to help you grind other skill levels much easier!
