All EX Skills in Octopath Traveler 2 Listed

Each of your eight party members can unlock two EX skills that are unique to them. The first EX skill is obtained by visiting the altar of the class they’re associated with. Osvald, for example, must visit the Altar of the Scholarking to unlock his first EX Skill. Ochette must visit the Altar of the Hunter in order to unlock hers. The second EX skill is obtainable only by completing that character’s entire arc. That means finishing Chapters 1 through 5.
