Class Rank - How To Increase & Raise

Farm CP For Class Rank

Defeat Monsters Especially Elite & Unique

To increase the Class Rank, you need to accumulate CP, which is used for raising the Class Rank. Since you can get CP in the same way as EXP, defeat monsters with Chain Attack Overkill to accumulate CP. Defeating elite & unique can give you more CP than regular ones.

Leveling Guide - How To Farm Exp Fast

CP Differs For Each Class

The compatibility between characters & classes is ranked from S to D, with S being the most compatible, and better compatibility increases the CP you can get. On the other hand, having low compatibility decreases the CP you can earn. With that said, consider the compatibility of the characters & classes to be able to acquire the maximum CP available.

Complete Ascension Quest To Unlocked Class Rank

Initially, you can raise the Class Rank up to 10, and to be able to increase it further to 20, it is required to finish the Ascension Quest which enables you to improve a specific class afterward.
