I don't understand. So if I want to be a bard, do I have to an archer to a certain level and than switch to a level 1 bard? Am I a bard and archer at the same time? Am I leveling 2 classes at once and switching back and forth between them? I can't grasp the new leveling structure.
I have a question, my reading of the class reforms and action lists lead me to believe that the new list is completely replacing what we currently have but several people in my Linkshell think that the actions listed are in addition to what we have today.
How is everyone else interpreting this?
I'm wondering this as well. SE is being very vague about the changes and how it will be worked in it seems. Either that or I have missed something that answered that very question, which is quite possible.
Jobs aren't new things to level, they are an extension of the classes you've already leveled.
So far they've only said this:
Taking their example of paladin, to unlock the job, you need to have leveled Marauder to 15, and Gladiator to 30 to get the quest for unlocking PLD.
Once you do that quest, you then have the ability to turn your gladiator into a PLD by equipping what they call a job stone (they aren't sure if thats what they are calling it at the moment).
Once you equip that job stone on your 30 gladiator, you will be a 30 Paladin and you will see an increase in defence and lowered hp. Presumably, certain cross class abilities will become locked once you change into a job as well, but you will gain new abilities/traits.
Your job does not have levels in the sense that it does not have its own exp bar. The only growth for the job will be through quests that unlock abilities (and probably job specific armor).
Example: Level 30 Gladiator > equip job stone > level 30 Paladin > Exp until Level 31 Paladin > unequip Job stone > level 31 Gladiator > EXP until level 32 gladiator > equip Job stone > Level 32 Paladin > etc etc
The only class being grown through EXP is gladiator, while the job is only being leveled once you do the quests to unlock additional abilities. Edited, Nov 19th 2011 1:55pm by dasquall
