In Ragnarok Online, a character's abilities and skills are defined by their class (also known as job). Characters start out as Novices, then once they reach Job Level 10 they can choose between a variety of first job classes. After attaining Job Level 50 and Base Level 50 they can then change to a second class job, either 2-1 or 2-2.
Alternatively, from Novice, players can choose to explore the Expanded Class, Ninja.
- The job changes process can be confusing. An example of the general path is as follows:
- Start off as Novice
- Reach job level 10
- Choose a first class (Swordsman)
- Reach job level 50 and base level 50
- Choose a second class (Knight)
- Reach base level 99
