The Nasod Armor is activated when Add goes into Dynamo Configuration Mode (DP mode/Awakening). It lets Add extend his combos using Nasod Armor commands and skills. It also enables him to gain more MP when in DP mode or installation switching. Add can also deal greater damage with Nasod Armor combos as the Nasod Armor skill level increases. To enhance this feature, invest more skill points to the passive skill Nasod Armor Mode – Transform.

At level 15, players can choose to upgrade Add to the Arc Tracer Job Path. As Arc Tracer, Add’s long range psychic assault knows no bounds. The Arc Tracer Job Path allows players to completely change the way Add engages the enemy.
