Affinity Coins are a resource that each character has, which they can spend on Skill Links with other characters. Each skill costs a certain amount of Affinity Coins to link, and each character has a pool of Affinity Coins shared among all skill links no matter the linked character.

Once the character unlinks the skills, the Affinity Coins spent in linking them get returned to player, so none of them are permanently spent.

For an explanation on Skill Links, see the guide below.

How To Get Affinity Coins

There are two ways to get affinity coins, leveling up and defeating unique monsters.

Leveling Up

For every time you level up, your character is granted Affinity Coins. This is shared amongst the party, so whether or not they're in your battle party, they will level up and get extra affinity coins.

Defeating Unique Monsters

There are unique monsters around the Bionis and Mechonis that can be defeated once, and upon defeating, them the player is awarded Affinity Coins for their party as well.

New Game+

If you play new game plus, Affinity Coins and Levels carry over. Because of this, there is no way to get more affinity coinse through leveling once you hit level 99 in NG+, but you can repeatedly hunt Unique Monsters every NG+ and grind more Affinity Coins.
