White Mage is an safe bet, or some other healing class.

I guess being a spin-off, continuity is kind of out the window yet again.


Yeah, but the point of this game is that the characters are playing an online game - so they might have only picked classes they liked/thought were best. So I think it's okay this time.

At least, that's what I think. >>

I hadn't considered this... If that is the case, they really could be anything. I sense a running gag, where most characters pick random classes without realizing what they do...

But then again, there isn't much context to the sketches to begin with. It is possible there may be a job change feature akin to the early Final Fantasy games. If this is the case, they may start off as one class and become something completely different. The sketches may be to show off the characters as well as the variety of classes.

If they were to actually be in appropriate classes, I'm guessing it would be something like this:

Spoiler:
[] denotes what official source are implying/has stated to be their actual class, for comparison's sake

Neptune - Duelist/Hero(ine) [The same?/*Shield-less Paladin]
Noire - Duelist [*Dragoon? She definitely looks the part...]
Blanc - Paladin [White Mage/Cleric]
Vert - Magical Lancer (?) [Fencer?/*Dancer?]

*Credited to Koopa

Nepgear - Red Mage [Magician/Wizard]
Uni - Sniper Ranger/Gunslinger [Thief]
Rom - White Mage [Samurai]
Ram - Black Mage [Ninja]


Also, why were the Candidates' classes confirmed first? I'm... intrigued by this decision.

Blanc does not have a lot in the way of magical aptitude; she doesn't take magical hits all that well and she's not exactly proficient at dealing them out herself.

As expected no information.

Classes for the candidates (rough sketches) are as follows:

- Nepgear - Magician/wizard;
- Uni - Thief;
- Ram - Ninja;
- Rom - Samurai.

Yesysyeysyeeyes!!! So much yessssss

This is the best possible setup. Soooo happy Uni's a thief ~ :mrgreen:
And it's nice to see Rom playing the Samurai, I bet everyone thought she was going to be the ninja xD

I am really really excited for this game!

Whoops, sorry. I've just been playing Terraria again for a couple of days, sooooo...

It was pretty hard not to make an impulsive comparison, tbh.


@vamp

I honestly thought [Shy Samurai] Rom would be the Ninja as well, but it looks like we'll be getting a [Highly Visible Ninja] Ram instead.

Rom's quiet yeah, but Ram's probably the more sneaky of the two. Ram's also the one who likes to cause the most trouble. While IRL samurai were definitely more like Ram: Loud, obnoxious, selfish (but they did have that "honor code", so it's not like they were total demons, and it's not like ALL of them were that bad. Just a lot took advantage of their status and pushed anyone who was lower than them around), the idealized versions are nothing like her (Calm, Loyal, Kind, Honorable, patient). And while Rom fits the IRL ninja more (Quiet (as their life depended on it), weak physically (in a physical fight they were pretty much toast. The point was to not get caught. Kunoichi (female ninja) were a lot different though, and often used seduction to their advantage) Patient, and also loyal, surprisingly), I'd say Ram's high desire to prank, and just all around cause mischief works better for the romanticized version of a ninja. Especially considering how Rom is easily the one more on the "honor" and "loyalty" side.

I think they also went with the ninja, because all the caltrops/etc that just totally fit Ram's prankster mindset. Though it depends exactly how she's a ninja, I saw a scroll, and not a sword, so that's why I'm thinking they're going highly with the trickster arsenal.

Holy Knight, Dark Knight, Sage, Enchantress, Witch, Thief, Ninja, Samurai. And the game's an ActionRPG.... Hype!

I thought the Thief class would've been for Iffy to be honest. Uni could keep the same outfit and weapons and have the Gunslinger class or something. Curious to know about Iffy and Compa's classes now.

@vamp

Oh, I see now. Thanks for the info, man! :lol:

@Candidate Full Designs & the Class Reveal

My heart...!
My heart can't handle a cute witch Nepgear complete with the stereotypical witch broom!
A-And Uni looks pretty slick!
Rom and Ram look awesomely adorable as well!

these designs man *dies*

Anyways, um... Noire's Batman? (lol)
Nep's class is still a very protagonist-oriented one...
Blanc's... actually fits her more than a simple White Mage/Cleric/Priest.
And uh, Enchantress Beru-Beru. Fitting as well.

Please don't mess this up, CH.

We're not worthy of all these amazing designs.

I seriously can't wait to see Compa.

Personally a little bit disappointed that Gear looks a tad bit bland to me, though what do I know?

Rom being a samurai at the moment appears to be slightly unusual. The real winner of the candidate designs though is Ram with the tight ninja shorts though.

All in all, I'm mostly pleased with the designs.

Those are some nice designs. Very pretty, unique, varied and very aesthetically pleasing.
To be honest though, I would've liked Uni to have a greater costume to skin ratio.
Not because I don't like what she's wearing, I do.
But, I would've liked if there was more to her outfit, you know literally.
Maybe some sleeves or something. Also looks more like a gunslinger than a thief, but thats not really an issue.

Everyone looks absolutely fantastic. Even if some of them are classed oddly, I am sure it will make sense in the end... Somehow. Maybe.

I had no idea how Rom would look as a Samurai, but she does it quite well. Ram looks like a completely different character. Nepgear as full witch... Unexpected, but adorable. Noire fits her class, personality-wise. Blancs classing is unexpected, I really expected a berserker for her. Vert is as elegant as expected.

Neptune really stole my heart though. Unorthodox knight heroine... She looks the type to slay the dragon and rescue the princess, whilst tripping a few times and ending on a cheesy punchline. Love.

Still expecting a healing class for Compa. No daggers yet... So it is still possible for IF to get a fitting class. Assassin, perhaps?

^ Indeed. Assassin class for Iffy is pretty likely in my opinion. I've absolutely no idea about Compa though, maybe Alchemist or something along those lines.
