an overview for my fellow ragnarok online cosplayer

this is an entry for my cosplay-group.
I accepted the challenge to organize this huge cosplay group. some of these people didn't play the game so this entry shall explain the classes and the equip and everything.


start of with the novice
this is how you start the game. as a novice. you will learn some basic skills till you are joblevel 9 then you are ready for your first jobchange. 
at the time you create your account you will have do decide which gender you want to play. if you have a female account all your characters will be female, same goes for the male account -> all your characters will be male.

there are some cases where the gender determines your class, but normally there are no differences between genders except for the appearance. 


first you will have a veeeeeeeeeery short time as a novice. if you have job level 10 you may do your first job change.


you can choose one of the following classes


your job level account will be set to zero during the job change. if you chose a class with a second job (all except ninja and gunslinger) you may have your 2nd jobchange with job level 40. alternatively you may change at job level 50, depending on your devotion for your character (in my personal opinion it s waste to make a jobchange at lvl 40, you will need the skillpoints!)


then if you are baselevel 99 and joblevel 50 you may choose to rebirth your character. it means you restart with a 1/1 novice and do all the leveling again but this time you will need 3 times more experience than before. why doing this?
you unlock new skills, you can have only as a rebirth charakter, you will have more life and mana, and you may wear better equipment.you don't need to rebirth but it has many advantages. 

then if you have reached base level 99 and job level 70 (or 50 if you didn't do rebirth) you may advance to your third class till you have reached base level 150. your max job level is 50, since you start with 1 at the beginning of your job change.



this is a table with all the possible classes

system does like this:
  • first job
    • second job A
      • -> 2nd rebirth job  -> third job
    • second job B
      • -> 2nd rebirth job  -> third job
