■ More Information About Class Changes

Dragon Quest Heroes II

As previously announced, the male and female protagonists have the ability to change classes. There are five classes available to players: “Warrior,” “Martial Artist,” “Mage,” “Priest,” and “Thief.” Players start in the Warrior class, but will be able to change classes by progressing through the story. Level and Skill Points are applied separaetly for each class, so your level for each first time in a new profession will be Level 1.

The battle-time actions and learnable skills for each job class differ greatly. If you’re a Priest, you’ll learn skills that will recover your party, and if you’re a Martial Artist, you can learn powerful attack sills. Since the weapons for each class are also different, by raising the Proficiency of your weapons, you’ll be able to learn more diverse skills. Also, there are some skills that go beyond the class and increase the protagonist’s attribute values.

Major Changes Due to Class Change

  • Level and attribute value change
  • Weapons that can be equipped change
  • Actions that can be used in battle change
