EX job feature is added to the game with the 1st year anniversary as part of the version 3.0.0 update. Check the link above to view the rest of the updates.
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, level 15 for all 3 of their jobs, and get the required materials for the EX Job upgrade, you can perform an EX Job awakening. This will increase the cap of 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 receive an EX job update are released periodically. The materials required to level EX jobs are quite rare, so it's recommended to choose carefully before doing so.
You can view a unit's EX skill boards even if you have not unlock their EX jobs yet.
Newly learned skills and certain nodes like "Damage Limit Up" can be levelled up to 20. But unlike most skills that can be viewed and levelled through "Batch Enhance", you'll need to level up these skills by manually tapping on the "enhance" button once you selected the node.
Be sure to do this once you've unlocked them to make them more powerful. This is especially important if your skill is a magic ability that requires casting, since levelling them up speeds up casting time.
The first set of items to unlock their EX job going from 15 to 16 are always the same. You will need 1 Broadstone that's the same rarity as the unit, and the same element Fragment of Thoughts and Awakening Prisms.
Increasing their job levels after 16 requires Mindspheres and other new materials.
Getting more shards of a unit that's enough to fully limit break them (past 600 shards) will automatically get converted to Soul Medals and Mindspheres.
You need 400 Mindspheres to reach EX Job level 25. Below the page is a useful chart made by a JP user that shows how many you need at certain job levels.
Broadstones have many rarities, just like vision spheres or fragment of thoughts. You only need 1 for a unit, and it's to unlock a unit's EX from level 15 to 16.
Broadstones are sometimes available in a bingo mission reward, so be sure to always check them out!
You can also purchase Broadstone at Special Shop. It costs 10,000 JPY on the JP server.
Another one of the items you need as you level up the unit's job level, mostly obtainable from events, or shops. You need a total of 5 Blossom of Paradise to reach level 25.
Blossom of Paradise can be obtained as item drop from lvl 6 alcryst chambers of any element, but they share the same limit of 1 per month.
Additionally, you can get another 1 each month from any of the new branded tablet chamber dungeons. A, B, and C share the same limit, so if you managed to get a drop from chamber A, then B, and C won't drop anymore.
The droprate of the blossom is very low, so it's better to try to farm it during double drop day, which is Saturday for the branded tablet chamber. Tap the magnifying glass to view the drops if you want to check whether you already got it or not.
Blossom of Paradise are sometimes sold in event shops as well, and they usually cost double the price of Rainbow Fragment of Thoughts.
Branded Tablets are obtainable from a new training chamber dungeon.
Super High Difficulty Training Chamber is added and you can get Scorchmark Stone of each weapon as item drop.
Lastly, there's Alcryst Statues. You get these from the Alcryst Chambers.
