Vocations are the classes that players can choose for their characters. They are separated into three different types, which are Basic, Advanced and Hybrid. At the beginning of the game, you pick from one of the three Basic vocations and then work your way from there.
Each Vocation is on equal footing and instead separated from each other by their skills. This allows you to play as whatever you want without worrying about having to pick another Vocation because it might be stronger. To change Vocations, you need Discipline Points, which are earned based on the experience you get from quests and monster kills.
The Basic Vocations are Fighter, Mage and Strider. The Advanced Vocations are Warrior, Sorcerer and Ranger. The Hybrid Vocations are Mystic Knight, Magick Archer and Assassin. All of these Vocations, including their skills and abilities are on the following pages.
