Hello UG,
I'm purchasing an 8 string Agile electric within the next week or so, and I was curious if there was anything specifically to watch out for? I've been playing guitar for around seven to eight years, but I have limited experience to anything that's not your standard six string so all input is greatly appreciated!

Generally you'd want a longer scale length.
A guess a minimum of 26.5" is favorable but really it's all personal preference about the specs you want.

Try out the pickups extensively. I don't know about Agile, but some stock pickups are ridiculously imbalanced. Schecter's stock pickups were extremely loud in the bass, but the treble sounded kind of weak.

This is easily rectifiable with new pickups obviously, but still something you might want to consider.
