Category:Jobs

By meeting certain prerequisites, Disciples of War or Disciples of Magic can change from their classes to more specialized jobs. Taking on a job gives characters access to exclusive skills and actions.

The list below summarizes the features and characteristics of jobs:

  • Jobs are an extension of classes.
  • Characters switch to a job from the corresponding base class.
  • Characters can don the gear of the base class as well as job-specific gear.
  • Jobs have exclusive actions.
  • Selecting a job will limit the type and number of actions from other classes that can be used. (Some class-specific actions cannot be used after switching to a job.)
  • Jobs do not have their own levels. When switched to a job, the character level is that of the base class.
  • EXP earned while playing as a job counts towards that of the base class.
  • By completing job quests, characters can expand their repetoire of job-specific skills and actions.


[edit] Acquiring Jobs

To acquire a job, a character must reach a certain level in the associated class and subclass, complete a job quest, and then receive a soul crystal key item. See the specific job for the quest to unlock that job. To take on a job quest, players must present themselves in the associated class.

[edit] Changing Jobs

Characters switch to a job from the associated class; for example, from gladiator to paladin. To switch, characters must possess the soul crystal for that job, such as the Soul of the Paladin. Upon switching to a job, the EXP bar will indicate that you are currently playing as that job. See the List of Jobs below to see the available jobs and the classes to which they are associated.

Follow these steps to switch to a job:

1. Select Gear from the main menu 2. Select the main hand gear slot 3. Select primary arms or primary tools for the associated class 4. Select the job slot above the main hand gear slot 5. Select the soul crystal

Follow these steps to switch back to the original class:

1. Select Gear from the main menu 2. Select the job slot next to the main hand gear slot 3. Select the equipped soul crystal and remove it from the slot

  • You cannot switch directly from one job to another.
  • To change from a job to a different class (not the original associated class), simply change the gear carried in your main hand as you normally would.


[edit] Job Actions

When playing as a job, you will have access to actions of the main base class as well as new, job-specific actions. Job-specific actions are acquired by completing job quests. In addition, you'll have access to certain skills from the sub-class of that job. For example, if you're a Monk, you'll have access to abilities from the Pugilist, Marauder and Lancer classes.
