Free Characters of Another Eden
Another Eden, while a gacha game, 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 good and 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 do it at any moment of their playthrough and none of it is missable.
They will join party as 3★ first in some story chapters.
Some of them can leave temporarily due to the story, but eventually they will re-join again, and will continue to travel with the player in his party and help him.
All these story characters can be upgraded to at least 4★.
And the game also helps with this: the player can get 4★ Class Tome of each story character in a Side Episode while playing through its main quests.
Or Class Tomes can be obtained from usual random drops from Another Dungeons
Eventually almost all Story Characters will also get 5★ forms with future releases of new Story parts and new Episodes.
The unlock requirements for their 5★ Ability Board will vary. Some unlock through story progression, while others need you to defeat a series of battles akin to a Chance Encounter. The Story Characters' 5★ upgrade does not need the use of any Chant Scripts; instead the player will need to farm 10 Class Psalms for each such character from the relevant Very Hard Another Dungeon (Drop rates of 1 Psalm is comparable with 1 5★ Tome of Dream Character). These Psalms are also available in the Nopaew Emporium for trade.
Where to get particular Tome or Psalm, can be looked up from 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.
Upgrades of such characters to 3★, and next to 4★, won't require any materials or Tomes, and are connected only to Episode Quests rewards. Episodes usually require gathering of the 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.
These characters are limited to 4★ Class. Currently, they cannot be upgraded further to 5★, but this will become available in future updates.
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.
Where to get particular Class Tome, can be looked up from Character page > Class > Class Tome Page
