EX job feature is added to the game with the 1st year anniversary in JP update.
What is EX Job?
EX job is an upgrade system that will increase the level cap of your unit's main job, acquiring new skill boards that will give stats, upgrade old skills, and get new abilities.
Once your character has reached level 99 and level 15 for all 3 of their jobs, you can perform an EX Job awakening. This will increase the unit's max level from 99 to 120, and their main job level from 15 to 25.
However, not all units can be EX upgraded since this works similarly to when developers release new characters. Characters that receives an EX job update is released periodically. The materials required to level EX jobs are quite rare, so it's recommended to choose carefully before doing so.
How to Get EX Job Materials
The first set of items to unlock their EX job going from 15 to 16 are always the same. You will need 1 Rainbow Jewel that's the same rarity as the unit, and the same element Fragment of Thoughts and Awakening Prisms.
Increasing their levels after 16 requires Unit Vision Pearls and other new materials.
Unit Vision Pearl
You can get this item when you obtain units or unit fragments for a unit who is already max limit-broken. You'll also obtain vision medal as usual.
After the update, new challenge mission are added, and you can get 1 Rainbow Jewel after completing the missions. This is the only F2P way of obtaining Rainbow Jewel.
You can also purchase Rainbow Jewel at Special Shop. It costs 10,000 JPY on the JP server.
Abyss Flower of Paradise
Abyss Flower of Paradise can be obtained as item drop from Super High Difficulty Training Chamber and Elemental Pyroxene Chamber Lv.6.
You can only get one each month from Super High Difficulty Training Chamber A, B, or C (If you get one from Chamber A, then chamber B and C won't drop the item this month), the same with Elemental Pyroxene Chambers for a total of 2 per month.
Abyss Flower of Paradise are sometimes sold in event shops as well, and they usually cost double the price of Rainbow Fragment of Thought / Rainbow Vision Sphere.
Weapon Scorchmark Stone
Super High Difficulty Training Chamber is added and you can get Scorchmark Stone of each weapon as item drop.
Elemental Pyroxene Statue
Pyroxene Chamber Lv.6 is added to each elemental Pyroxene Chamber. You can get the item from the quest drop.
they have one if you complete a bingo quest and they sell one in the shop for 1 mil gold and theres a promo where you have to spend 14k vis becausee you have to roll seven times but you get two for free and they had this promo twice now so if you're f2p, the most you can get is 4 but you have to spend a total of 28k vis and 1 mil gold
the grind is such a pain but the autoheal on yuna is worth it
Completely false that you need IRL money. It's the same way that Sins are handled in TAC, if you're F2P you just need to be picky at first, after a while you'll have a lot of them. Literally a 1.5 year after they came to TAC I can enlighten almost 30+ units and still have left over lol.
Everyone is gated even whales cause those rainbow bundles aren't infinite.
