Between 1 and 101 Player level

  • All stages cost 0 AP
  • Unit level is restricted to Player level.
  • You need level 85 for one of New Player milestones by your 7th day
  • Use Mercenaries it is much easier to clear stages! Visit Discord #friend_codes to look for friend or ask using in game chat!
  • Story quests give lots of player XP!
  • Do not rush to level 101 once you hit level 85!
    • Clear event stages, obtain milestones, farm gear, unit shards. Some stages cost up to 60AP after you hit 101.

Don't be afraid to try out stages you may not clear, check global Discord or Youtube for guides. InvoFang is doing great job to show how to clear EX/EX+/Hell Stages!

Retreating from Events/Quests with 0/X daily limit doesn't count against your limit!

Remember to do your Daily Events/Quests

Raise your unit main job levels

This is where your unit get most of statistics from, also it is much more important than unit level! Once job level is at 11, you can fill all equipment slots to obtain Job Mastery!
Here's small comparison:

Lv. 60 Unit with Job 1/11 without Job Master bonus
Lv. 60 Unit with Job 11/11 with Job Master bonus

Don't forget about other jobs!

What each limit break brings to your unit?

Example of Job Master bonus stat %

At 5 Limit breaks, +5 levels 1st job unlocked


10 limit breaks, +10 levels additional gear Slot


15 limit breaks, +15 levels 2nd Job unlocked


20 limit breaks, +20 levels and some units receive Master Ability

25 limit breaks, +25 levels and additional gear slot, ability to unlock Unit Enlightenment and some units receive Babel War Art mission.

There are "three unit groups"

  • Farmable - In this group, you can get 3 shards a day from Hard Quest,
  • EX Hard Quest 1 shard a day,
  • Event limited shard quests,

You do NOT want to use Unit shards to limit break your unit if it is EX Hard Quest / Event Limited

You do WANT to use Unit shards to limit break unit if you can farm 3 shards a day

*Note that you need to complete Story chapters to unlock Hard Quests 3/day and EX Hard Quest 1/day for certain units

*Other units are locked under different story events, such as Babel Chronicles
