Classes

Classes are an important part of the game. Each character starts with a class. Most characters will have the chance to prestige into a higher class. Some characters have their own class and cannot

prestige into another class. Some prestige options are based on choices made throughout the game.

 

What does a class do for the character?

  • Adds higher base statistics to a character.
  • Offers an array of abilities for the character.
  • Decides which future class the character may have as an option.
  • Determines what weapons and equipment the character can use.

Some characters can use certain weapons and equipment that their class can’t normally use.

How many classes are there?

There are 67 classes in Threads of Life: Geth at the moment.

How many classes does a character have to choose from?

Each character that starts as a Base Class: Sneak, Fighter, Deacon, Savage, Sidai, Magi, and Keeper.

Base classes have two options for class advancement. Sidai has Sisuk and Sifu. From these two option there are two more options. For instance, Sisuk becomes Sisuk Gong or Wu Sau. Each prestige option allows the character to advance a certain part of their base form that the player wishes to improve.

Can I see what I will be getting before choosing a class?

Yes! Characters can choose their class upgrades at appropriate areas to their class. Sidai find their advancement at a monk temple when they reach a necessary level. Whenever a player seeks advancement for a character they speak to the leader of the appropriate area. That leader offers them their options while telling them what their advancement entails. Then the player is informed of future advancement options that come with that option. Sisukgong and Wu Sau would be spoke of long before making the choice to become either class. They would be mentioned when the player chooses one of the first two options of Sisuk and Sifu. The player will also be informed again whenever they are attempting to advance to their last tiered class.
