Recruitment guide

From Eiyuden Chronicle Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This recruitment guide is built so that players need to click through for information. This is so players can avoid unnecessary spoilers and access only the information they want to see.

Characters are listed based on when they become available to recruit. Characters that have an additional story requirement beyond the rest of the group will have that information marked.

This particular guide does not display characters that automatically join the player through the story.
