There are four main classes in Wizardry Online: Fighter, Priest, Thief, and Mage. Each class has two skill trees that offer additional specializations. For instance, Fighters can choose between melee DPS and tanking, or even a combination of both.
Each class has distinct specialities that affect their abilities. These can be checked on the skill menu ('K'). When you intend to class change, it is important to keep these in mind, as certain abilities will not be as effective if brought over to another class.
For more information on each specific class, check the links below:
