First mentioned when Tree of Savior was announced, the game will introduce around 80 classes (including advanced ones) for players to choose from. The latest developer blog touches on some question regarding this massive number, including some rather unique classes such as the Shepherd.
Q) Can Companions grow in terms of their appearances? Such as Pocket Monster’s (Pokemon) evolution.
A) We don’t have any evolution system as of yet. Instead, you will be able to level up your companions, increase their stats or attributes and equip items onto them.
Q) If there are not enough spaces in barrack, do we have to delete a companion in order to add one more character?
A) No. You don’t have to. You can move to a bigger barrack.
Q) How do you get rid of the acquired items? Do we sell them to NPCs? Or Do monsters drop only in-game currency?
A) No. They will also drop other items besides in-game currency. These items can be sold to NPCs or they can also be used as ingredients for crafting or looking and they can also be used as level up for Gem items. I will tell you more about Gems, Card items and their level ups in the future.
Q) Is there Monk Class?
A) Yes. There is. Monk class belongs to Cleric type classes.
Fist is used in skills, but separate knuckle item does not exist. Instead, it will apply the equipped item’s stats on its skills.
Q) Are there any special classes that we haven’t seen from the other games before?
A) Since we have about 80 classes, we do have special, diverse classes that you haven’t expected before. In TOS, there are master NPCs who help the growth of each class, to put it in other word, there are various types of classes as there are various types of NPCs.
For example, if you met an Appraiser NPC in the game, there may be an Appraiser class. Or if you met a Shepherd NPC, you may be able to change your character’s class to Shepherd class. Seen below are the classes Rodeleros, Necromancer and Dievdirbys.
Q) Do we have to buy arrows or bullets when we play with an Archer?
A) No. You don’t have to buy arrows. However, for certain skills, you need specific arrows for those skills. There is a separate class (Fletcher) which is specialized in crafting and using these specific arrows or items.
