"Choosing Your Character" Guide

by Lenne



Questions:

Q. What is the purpose of this guide?

A. This character is mainly directed at new players who have trouble choosing which character to play.

By reading this guide, you will be able to find out the basics of the character: their story, specialty, difficulty to play, and future job advancements.

This guide will consist mostly of basic information. For in-depth information of a character's job, there are specific job guides placed in the Character and Skills forum section. Refer to the Official Guide Archives to find them; you can find them in specific character sections or you can click on the links at the bottom of each section within this guide.



Q. How difficult is the character?

A. There will be a difficulty scale listed in stars (☆). ☆ is the easy, the max of ☆☆☆☆☆ being difficult.

This difficulty scale is based on how flexible the character is, in terms of damage output, survivability, and ease of attack/movement control.



Q. What is a "B-Slot?" Is it important to have one?

A. A "B-Slot" is the second set of skills in your skill menu. At first you have the A-Slot, allowing you to have 4 skills. With the additional B-Slot, you can have access to 8 skills. A B-Slot is acquired through the Item Mall (cash shop); 450 K-Ching ($4.50) for a 30-day slot and 900 K-Ching ($9) for a permanent one.

Many players argue that some classes are not easy to play without a B-Slot, stating that certain classes "need" it. This is because those certain classes have to have as many of the skills they have access to in order to be efficient and flexible for any situation in the game.

It is not required that you have a B-Slot; in fact, some players have lived well through the game with just only 4 skills. However, for a full fun experience, it is suggested that you get a B-Slot for any character you have, if you can afford it of course.


Q. What does "Imperal, Rebellious, and Transform" mean?

A. These refer to canon paths. It is just a fun fact and will not affect your gameplay in anyway.

There are 3 class branches, each with names: Imperial, Rebellious, and Transform. Imperial refers to the character staying on the "traditional" path of the game, giving a feel of elegance. Rebellious implies that the character has chosen a different path that is unlike traditional ideas, usually meaning a dark and untamed personality of the character. Transform, the newer branch, refers to "transforming" the character into a completely new idea exotic and unimagined, hence new kinds of powers unlike either Imperial or Rebellious. (Minor note: 2nd jobs of Transform classes are also referred as Transform Evolution or Transform Max.)


Q. What if I still can't choose a character right for me?

A. Then I have no help there at all. Try a lottery drawing.


Q. I see the some classes/abilities "CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE IN NORTH AMERICA". Does that mean we won't get them? They look so cool though!

A. We will get them. Do not worry, but what you must NOT do is ask everyone on the forums. No one knows exactly when the rest of the classes/abilities will arrive.


So, let's start the guide!
