Sage

  • Weapons: Mace
  • Ability: Magic Sigil

Sage is a versatile job that combines both black and white magic into one deadly combination.

One of the best things about Sage is the Teleport skill, which allows you to both evade attacks and quickly move around the area.

How to unlock Sage

  • Black Mage
  • White Mage

Ninja

  • Weapons: Daggers, Knuckles, Katana
  • Ability: Ninjutsu

Ninja is another pure DPS job that is focused on dealing high damage. but What makes it special is the ability to consume ninja tools instead of MP, which can be replenished at the cubes.

How to unlock Ninja

  • Samurai
  • Thief

B-Tier Jobs

Paladin

  • Weapons: Greatsword, Sword, Mace

How to unlock Paladin

  • Knight
  • White Mage

Dark Knight

  • Weapons: Greatsword, Sword, Knuckles, Lance, Katana, Axe
  • Ability: Souleater

Dark Knight is the complete opposite of the Paladin. Instead of restoring HP to deal damage, Dark Knight consumes own HP to increase its DPS output.

But don't worry, as there is a special Drain skill that comes with this job that allows you to steal HP from the surrounding enemies.

How to unlock Dark Knight

  • Berserker
  • Warrior
  • Black Mage

Assassin

  • Weapons: Daggers, Knuckles, Mace, Lance
