Xenoblade Chronicles 3 classes secret guide

These are near the endgame

Three Xenoblade Chronicles 3 classes are tougher to find than all the others. Here’s a quick rundown of how to pick them all up.

[Note that there will be no specific story spoilers below, but locations will be named, as will names of quests and classes (without proper character names).]

How to find the Machine Assassin in Xenoblade Chronicles 3

So this is by far the hardest class to find in the game, as it requires multiple quest chains. Note that you likely shouldn’t attempt this until you’re at least level 50, so you can just go back and eventually close this one out: or do some of the required quests along the way. Your choice.

Once you reach the Fornis Region you’ll have the opportunity to do quests for Colony 4 (pictured here). Complete all the quests you can inside of the confines of the colony, and eventually, you’ll be able to get “Severed Connection” outside of the colony’s gates with a question mark icon (?) appearing to denote it can be picked up. Complete that (simply head to the quest marker and finish one fight).

Later in the game, through listening to a rumor in The City, you’ll get this quest from the same location called Writer’s Block. That’s the next step of the questline. Complete that quest (all you need to do is have it as a focus, and go to the locations it tells you to).

After that, head here to the Upper Aetia Region. Once Writer’s Block and Severed Connection are complete, a question mark icon (?) will appear right here. That will lead you directly to the Machine Assassin questline.

After finishing the game, head here with a clear file. The “questline” is essentially a conversation and you’ll unlock the Royal Summoner.

It’s that simple! I’m keeping things as vague as possible.
