How to Unlock new Classes in Xenoblade Chronicles 3

xenoblade chronicles 3 classes guide: class list, skills, arts, unlocks, and best classes for each character

With six starting classes and 18 unlockable classes, there's a total of 24 in Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Unlocking new classes for your character is relatively unique in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, since the system is intrinsically linked to another of the game's many mechanics: Heroes.

The core cast of Xenoblade 3 is just six characters, and each has a set class role that they fulfill that cannot be changed. However, you can have a seventh body on the battlefield, non-playable, by deploying a hero character to the fight. Heroes are entirely optional and must be recruited, however. Each hero has a specific and unique class – and this can then be passed to your cast of playable protagonists.

When you first recruit a hero to your cause, one of the main characters will be marked as their 'Class Inheritor'. This is the character that will immediately unlock the ability to use that hero's class straight away, without any additional hoops to jump through.

For other characters, it's a bit more complicated. You'll need them to build an affinity with the class in question, which is accomplished by fighting alongside other characters using the target class. The more characters using that class in battle, the faster the affinity will grow; so initially, it makes sense to have both the hero and their class inheritor in battle, both set to the class you want the other characters to learn. You can also spend Nopon Coins to rank up classes.

If you want to know where to recruit each of the helpful allies that unlock new classes, check out our Xenoblade 3 Hero Unlock guide – that tells you how to get all of these characters, each of whom offer a new class. Many of them are unlocked through certain Xenoblade 3 quests.

Our general advice is to focus yourself on unlocking as many classes as possible quickly, then find your favorites (perhaps using our best classes list above as a guide) – and then focus on leveling up the class affinity and class points grinding in order to spread the ability to use your favorite classes around the party. As is often the case in RPGs, having more choice is good – so working to open up as many classes as you can as quickly as possible is a good idea.

Best Classes in Xenoblade 3

xenoblade chronicles 3 classes guide: class list, skills, arts, unlocks, and best classes for each character

The best class in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will, naturally, change a lot depending on where you're at in the game's narrative, as well as your personal play-style. Since you have to make up a solid but balanced party composition that'll allow you stay on top of the hectic battles that litter the overworld, including against strong enemies like the Unique Monsters, a lot of our advice on Best Classes has to do with a convergence of many other elements of the game. 

Or, to put it another way, there is no silver bullet – there is no single 'best class' – the answer will vary depending on how you play, and where you're at.

With that said, we do have some broad and general advice around which classes you should choose in Xenoblade 3:

Party Composition is Key to Class Choices

Generally speaking, we advise you always balance your party of six playable characters evenly – so we recommend two attackers, two defenders, and two healers. Which classes you choose within those archetypes can vary depending on the situation and the options available to you, but this setup is very difficult to go wrong with, giving you a good balance in combat.

If you're feeling a little more feisty, you can potentially switch it up and go for three attackers and only one defender – but we recommend still holding on to two healers, and without the healing output it can be easy to get caught off-guard and quickly wiped. Plus only healers can revive downed characters (without any additional accessories), so you'll want two healers to be able to revive each other if needed.

Recommended Classes of Each Type

With the above in mind, the next thing to consider is which classes of each type are the most potent. All are completely viable, and you should honestly go with your gut – but we have some notes nevertheless:

  • Attacker Classes:
    • Flash Fencer: The Flash Fencer is the first class you'll earn outside of your starting six, and you'll gain it in Chapter 3. Despite being an early-game class, it's an all-around fantastic addition to any party line-up, and it has several skills for boosting damage done in various situations. It's great for general use against regular enemy mobs, because the Flash Fencer has a Class Skill that boosts damage in the first 30 seconds of battle. Once you level up the class later in the game, it can unlock a Master Skill that will have the Talent Gauge begin with a full-charge, with can pair up well with numerous other classes.
    • Incursor: The Incursor is an attacker class focused on landing critical hits. Especially when it comes to taking down high-level enemies or Unique Monsters, this class can be very valuable even deep into the late-game. It's obtained by completing Alexandria's optional Hero Quest as early as Chapter 3 on the west side of the Fornis Region. Incursors are especially great in the context of Chain Attacks, as landing critical hits with a boosted damage percentage late in a chain can wipe whole chunks off an enemy's HP bar.
  • Defender Classes:
    • Zephyr: Despite being one of starting six classes you begin with in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, this is one of the best defenders in the game, because it focuses on agility and evasion rather than tanking. If you've played the original Xenoblade Chronicles, this will probably sound familiar to you. If you can boost your agility to levels where nothing can hit you, it's pretty hard to die. The only downside to a Zephyr is that they may struggle to maintain aggro. Adding Brimming Spirit and Perilous Presence gems can help with this.
    • Guardian Commander: In terms of pure tanking, it's hard to beat the Guardian Commander. Earned by doing Zeon's Hero Quest in Chapter 3, this class focuses on taking damage for allies, blocking, damage reduction, and some self HP restoration. Their Talent Art makes them invincible temporarily, too, so if targeted by an enemy about to dish a devasting attack, you can mitigate that damage entirely.
  • Healer Classes:
    • War Medic: The War Medic is absolutely ridiculous, frankly-speaking. Unlocked through Valdi, it can be grabbed from quite early on as part of a story-required Hero Quest, and can really make a significant difference in the early game immediately after being obtained. The War Medic has great AOE heals, and in addition has some early skills that significantly boost your healing opportunity and abilities. In terms of pure heal potential, it's one of the best in the game.
    • Signifer: The Signifer is a class that is less dedicated to healing and more to party-wide status buffs. This is an optional class that can be gained by completing Fiona's Hero Quest in Chapter 5. Paired with another healer focused on healing, this is a great class especially for fighting Unique Monsters, as the longer a battle may go, they more buffs they'll have on your party.

Class Affinity & Best Classes for each Character

While we list some of our picks for the best classes above, that doesn't obviously cover what classes you should assign to each character. The playable characters of Xenoblade 3 all have their own unique statistical strengths and weaknesses – which in turn means some classes are more suited to certain characters than others. With that in mind, here's some brief suggestions of classes you should assign to each to maximize efficiency:

  • Noah: Noah's core skill set lends well to him using classes that are physical attackers – the classic hero role, leading the party into battle. As such, he has a high affinity for classes like Swordfighter, Flash Fencer, and even Stalker – despite that being a ranged class. If you want him to tank, the Guardian Commander is a great defensively-minded alternative.
  • Mio: Consider her the mirror image of Noah – while he is the archetypal RPG fighter, she is your typical healer. She has high affinity with support classes like the Thaumaturge, Troubadour, and Lifesage. For a defensive style, you could try the Zephyr. She also has decent affinity with the excellent War Medic, and the unique Soulhacker. 
  • Eunie: When you first meet Eunie, she's firing off projectiles – and her class affinity amtches up with that. For attacking, go with the Full Metal Jaguar. For healing, try the Medic Gunner. She also has solid affinity with non-projectile classes like the Lone Exile, or to a lesser extent the Incursor.
  • Taion: Taion is a clever tactical type, and so unsurprisingly he has an affinity for classes like the Tactician and Strategos. If you want to attack, try him as the critical hit focused Incursor class.
  • Lanz: Lanz naturally appears to be a tank, but is actually a decent jack of all trades. He can tank well as a Heavy Guard, but also has a particularly high affinity for being a War Medic, or buffing as a Signifer. He also is a very good Soul Hacker, or can hit like a train as an Ogre.
  • Sena: Small but mighty, Sena performs well in a variety of attacker roles – usually those that let you exploit enemy weaknesses in interesting ways. She's at home as a Martial Artist, Yumsmith, or Machine Assassin – and is also great as an Ogre, if you want to keep things simple.
