Rappelz Player Class Guide
Rappelz Player Class Guide by koki1
I made this little thing mostly for new players who wants to know more the classes. Maybe it will help people choosing a class for the first time.
First, when you make your character, you choose your race. There are 3 different races; Gaia, Deva and Asura.
Then, when you have completed some start quests and such, you will be able to choose your first job class. For each race there are 3 first job classes:
Gaia: Fighter, Kahuna and Spell Singer.
Deva: Holy Warrior, Cleric and Breeder.
Asura: Strider, Dark Magi and Sorcerer.
Fighter: The Gaia warrior. A regular damage dealer class. The class can be used as a melee combat fighter or a long range fighter. As melee weapon I would recommend using a 2-handed axe or 2 1-handed axes (you will need a passive skill for that). Swords also work. As long range weapon you have a Long Bow.
Kahuna: The Gaia magician. This class have some good magic spells combined with a pretty good melee fighting ability. They are usually using a 2-handed axe for fighting. They also have buff skills (raising stats of others/yourself) that are very useful in groups.
Spell Singer: The Gaia summoner. As all summoner classes, this class uses a pet to fight by your side. It got skills to make a pet strong. Combined with this, it’s also a good fighter by itself. I would recommend using 2 1-handed axes when you get the passive skill for it. A 2-handed axe works too.
Holy Warrior: The Deva warrior. This class are mainly melee combat warriors. It has good defense and health, which makes it an excellent tank that can last long. Many weapons fit this class, some are 1-handed sword + shield, 2 1-handed swords, spear, 1-handed mace + shield etc.
Cleric: The Deva magician. This class are most known for the healing spells. It can heal (restore health) other players and itself. This makes it an excellent class for playing in groups to keep people alive. It also have other good magic spells and buffs. I recommend using a staff for better healing when you are playing in a group or a mace when you play alone for a good combination of magic and melee attacks.
Breeder: The Deva summoner. A class where you use a pet fighting by your side. It has skills to make a pet strong in addition to pet healing and pet buffs. Recommended weapon is a 2-handed mace.
Strider: The Asura warrior. A class that fights melee or range. It is known for fast hits and quick speed. Melee weapons would be 2 1-handed swords or 2 1-handed dirks. The range weapon for this class is a crossbow.
Dark Magi: The Asura magician. This class is using attack magic and debuff magic. It casts strong magic spells to kill the enemy. It uses a 2-handed staff for strong magic attacks, but a dirk + shield combo works too for melee attacks.
Sorcerer: The Asura summoner. Another class where you use a pet to fight by your side. It have skills to make your pet strong and also got good magic attack skills. They are mainly using dirk + shield to fight.
Later, when your character level is at least 50 and your job level is at least 40, you will be able to choose a second job class based on the class you choose as first job.
A short list over the second job classes:
Fighter can become a Champion or an Archer.
Champion improves the melee ability of the fighter.
Archer improves the range ability of the fighter.
Kahuna can become a Druid or a Battle Kahuna.
Druid gets good new magic spells and are probably more specialized on magic than the Battle Kahuna.
Battle Kahuna improves the fighting of the Kahuna, and are probably more specialized on melee attacking than the Druid.
Spell Singer can become an Evoker.
Evoker improves the abilities of the spell singer.
Holy Warrior can become a Soldier or a Knight.
Soldier improves the abilities of the Holy Warrior. Probably a bit more oriented on attack power than the Knight.
Knight improves the abilities of the Holy Warrior. Probably a bit more oriented on defense power than the Soldier.
Cleric can become a Priest or a Bishop.
Priest improves the healing abilities of the Cleric.
Bishop improves the magic abilities of the Cleric. A little less healing specialized than the Priest.
Breeder can become a Soul Breeder.
Soul Breeder improves the abilities of the Breeder.
Strider can become an Assassin or a Shadow Hunter.
Assassin improves the melee ability of the Strider.
Shadow Hunter improves the range ability of the Strider.
Dark Magi can become a Chaos Magician or a Warlock.
Chaos Magician improves the magic abilities of the Dark Magi. More attack spell specialized than the Warlock.
Warlock improves the magic abilities of the Dark Magi. More Debuff spell specialized than the Chaos Magician.
Sorcerer can become a Battle Summoner.
Battle Summoner improves the abilities of the Sorcerer.
