Ability points (AP) are received when leveling up and completing quests, and are used to unlock new abilities. The points are shared among all four friends, so it is possible to give one character an instant and dramatic boost.
The Ascension menu is the leveling system of Final Fantasy XV. There are several skill trees, or nexuses, divided into themes like Magic, Recovery, Techniques, etc. Each node in the nexus is unlocked by spending Ability Points (AP) which are earned by leveling up, completing quests, defeating enemies with specific moves, completing option strategy objectives during a battle, or by impressing friends in conversation. More ways become available after unlocking certain abilities. Ability Points are shared among all party members.
