Information about the seven basic character classes in ASH is out in the wild. The jobs are elementary and they are reminiscent of the classes in Mistawalker’s first game, Blue Dragon. Here is the run down:
Long Sword – a damage dealing class that wields a double edged sword. While the Long Sword class has higher defense than the mages, he is not meant to be a tank.
Black Magic – your standard attack mage who casts elemental spells and barely shows his face. Don’t put these guys in the front row since they have low defense.
White Magic – the healer and buffer of the group who shares a lack of defense power with the black magic class.
Battler – can’t use magic, but this class can deal decent physical damage. The battler also has the highest defense, which makes him the obligatory tank character.
Itemer – similar to the chemist class, the itemer can use and throw items from a distance.
Stealer – a renamed thief class that steals and has a high evade. The latter trait makes the stealer a possible decoy for enemies.
Monster Magic – this class can’t attack on its own. Monster Magic class users need to summon a monster to attack or support the team.
