Wizards and Warriors— Classes List

Here are the fifteen classes available to characters who travel the Gael Serran. This page deals strictly with each individual class; for help in combining them to create the perfect character, go to the Class Changing page.

Basic Classes

Every character begins in a basic class, and they can choose only one of these. Once a character chooses another class, they can never go back to a basic role.

Icon Class Affiliation Min. Attributes Skills and Spellbooks Notes
Warrior Warrior Clan of Three Swords Str 9, For 8 All weaponry, Athletics, Leadership Characters who want to get a jump start on martial training should initially be Warriors.
Rogue Rogue Guild of Shadow Dex 9, Agi 8 All weaponry, Athletics, Traps & Locks, Pickpocket Traps & Locks is a much needed skill, even early on. One character should specialize in it.
Priest Priest Brotherhood of Promise Spr 9, Pre 8 Mace, Pole & Staff, Shield, Spiritcraft, Vinecraft, Sorcery The most balanced of the basic classes; they can fight adequately as well as heal wounds.
Wizard Wizard League of Sorcery Int 9, Wil 8 Dagger, Pole & Staff, Throwing, Stonecraft, Suncraft, Sorcery Serious offensive spellcasters begin with this class. This is the only class that naturally learns Stone spells besides the Valkyrie and Zenmaster!

 

Elite Classes

You can become a member of any elite class that you wish, but a character cannot change into the same class twice in the same game. Guild members can purchase the right to quest for these advanced classes.

* — Becoming a Bard opens up the Fiendcraft spellbook for that character, but they learn Fiend spells at half the rate (they require double the Fiendcraft skill to learn a spell as a commensurately skilled Warlock).

Special Classes

Special classes become available only to the specific character who completes a specific task. After a character becomes eligible for one of these, they may accept the promotion or turn it down. I highly recommend that any character receiving an invitation to one of these classes accept it, and upon accepting it should never opt to change class again.
