Free Characters of Another Eden
Another Eden is a gacha game, but it still provides the player with a variety of good free characters. While most of them are not the best in comparison with characters the player can pull from Dream Encounters, they are still very useful for story progression and some of the postgame content. Also they can be very good additions to parties with characters from Dreams.
All the characters and content described below are not timed or limited in any way, other than by story progression. The player can choose to do them at any moment of their playthrough, and none of the content has a time limit.
They join the party initially as 3★ in some story chapters.
Some of them can leave temporarily due to the story, but eventually they will re-join, and continue to travel with the player.
All these story characters can be upgraded to at least 4★.
The player can get the 4★ Class Tome of each story character in a Side Episode while playing through its main quests.
Class Tomes can also be obtained from random drops in Another Dungeons
Eventually, almost all Story Characters will get 5★ forms in future releases.
The requirements for unlocking their 5★ Ability Board varies. Some unlock them through story progression, while others need you to win a series of battles akin to a Chance Encounter. The Story Characters' 5★ upgrade does not need any Chant Scripts; instead the player will need to farm 10 Class Psalms for each character from the relevant Very Hard Another Dungeon (The drop rate of a Psalm is comparable to the drop rate of a 5★ Tome of Dream Character). These Psalms are also available in the Nopaew Emporium for 30 Tsubara's Gems.
The location of particular Tomes or Psalms can be looked up in Character page > Class > Class Tome Page
Episode (Side Story) Characters
They will join party as Guest 2★, at the beginning of each side episode and will join the roster fully upon Episode progression.
Upgrading these characters to 3★ and 4★ does not require any materials or Tomes, and are connected only to Episode Quests rewards. Episodes usually require the gathering of the relevant episode's points to progress through quests. It can be done by killing episode monsters in the world, or in the episode's related Another Dungeon.
Chance Encounter Characters
Chance Encounters involve a series of boss fights that can be found on the overworld. They are denoted with a red exclamation flag. The player will have to complete about five fights to recruit the associated character, and must wait for 6 hours after each victory to unlock the next fight.
While most of them join the roster as a 2-4★, they can also be upgraded to 5★. The 4★>5★ upgrade requirements are no different from upgrading a 4★, and will need 1 5★ Class Tome, and 5 Chant Scripts. Some of these Chance Encounter characters are strong enough to be on par with other 5★ Dream Encounter units. Since there is no other way to upgrade these characters, the general consensus is to prioritize using your Chant Scripts for their upgrades.
Information on where to get these particular Class Tomes can be found in Character page > Class > Class Tome Page
