Square Enix will release a big update for Dragon Quest X in October with Paladin and Ranger jobs.
The Ranger uses bows, boomerangs, and axes. (Boomerangs and bows are new to Dragon Quest X.) Their "survival" skill gives them some recovery spells that restore HP and negate negative statuses. New skills let Rangers trick monsters into attacking each other and a swift strike called Wolf Attack.
Paladins use lances, hammers, and staves along with their class skill "benevolence." Paladins are guardians of the party and also have recovery spells. If you want to make a striking type of character pick the hammer as your weapon. Want to specialize in magic? Choose the staff. HP Passer lets the Paladin take damage instead of a party member. Blade of Defense counterattacks enemies that strike the Paladin with blades that emit from their body.
Players have to take quests to get these jobs in Dragon Quest X. The housing system will go live in October too. You can purchase land and a house kit to build your own base. Inside your home you can restore HP/MP and craft items inside. Houses can be customized and you can store 50 items inside.
Dragon Quest X came out on August 2 and this will be the first major update from the online Wii game.
