Xenoblade Chronicles X: Unlock All Party Members Guide

How to unlock all Party Members in Xenoblade Chronicles X

Xenoblade Chronicles X features an extensively lineup of characters that are able to join your party when doing the hundreds of missions that the game offers.

Unfortunately however, not all Party members joins naturally during the story missions. In fact most require you to have complete specific objects before they are happy to join your side.

With so many missions it can be confusing to sift through what quest is needed to unlock a new party member. To help my fellow Blade members,

I’ve put together a helpful guide detailing what Affinity mission is needed to be complete for a party member to be unlocked. Of course, I’ve also put together a general prerequisite and general level needed to successfully complete the affinity mission.

Furthermore, I’ve organized it in chronological order so you can keep track of your progress and decide whether you are able to take on the affinity mission.

Things to consider

Recruiting new party members almost always requires you to complete a specific affinity mission. Therefore you must be committed in completing the objective as the game will not allow you to continue onto the main story until the affinity mission is completed.

Furthermore, some affinity mission may pit you against enemies that are a few level higher than the required level of the affinity mission. I would advise you to be a few level highers than the prerequisite to make things a little easier for you.

Adding new members to your party

A little peeve of mine is that you cannot switch party members on will in Xenoblade chronicles X. You will need to directly find the members at NLA and request to join them. It’s a little annoying, but a not overly so. If you want to know where each party member resides, use the table below.
