Class Stone

Jump to: navigation, search

A class stone is a one-time consumable item that unlocks the ability to switch classes at any time (outside of battle or PvP). When first using a class stone, the chosen class is added to your skillbook as a skill set. You can access the skill set menu by clicking the button on the bottom-right of your skillbook.

General Information & Tips

A single character can unlock all four classes. However, it costs 540 gold to purchase a single class stone (1,620 gold for all three classes other than your main) and the completion of a specific quest line. They are meant to be a long-term investment for your character, as you can find problems early on with obtaining gear (competition with other players in your group), having enough space in your inventory and adjusting to the new class's skills.

Levels are not shared between classes, meaning that for every new class you unlock, you'll have to start at level 1 with most of your gear unavailable. It is recommended that if you are pursuing a new class, you'll have to keep low-level equipment with you. Equipment sets come in handy for managing gear between classes.

Additional skill sets are not shared between classes either, meaning that you'll need to pay additional gold to purchase skill sets for every new class.

How to Acquire a Class Stone

You have to reach a point in the game where you are capable of tackling the Tunnels of Illusion, the Cursed Farm dungeon (at least level 34) and have access to Blackwood in order to complete the following steps below. You also need a lot of gold, which is gained by farming monsters/dungeons, collecting drops and selling them to the Auction House or an NPC.

1. You have to complete the quest line (beginning with the quest Under Pressure) given by Elly in the Tunnels of Illusion.

2. A Gem in the Rough: By following this quest line, you will find that you have to complete the Cursed Farm dungeon in order to acquire a specific quest item from a Rock Spirit, found by defeating the real Aeris at the end of the dungeon. You'll then be asked to find Cereus, located at the Temple of Trials.

3. A Gem in the Rough II/Farming for Crystals: After talking to Cereus, you have to travel to Blackwood Hive to find Tera. She will tell you to find the spirit Yvi, which lies on the trail to Blackwood Caverns.

4. A Class By Itself/Old Familiar: Yvi will tell you that she sold the stones to Andy. This will open up the ability to purchase class stones from Andy in his shop.

5. A class stone requires 540 gold (because you're buying it from Andy). Once purchased, they have to be traded to Tera in her shop in order for them to work. Use the class stone in your inventory and it will be consumed. The class should appear as a skill set under your Skillbook as a button on the bottom-right corner of the page. When more than two skill sets exist, instead of switching automatically to the other, the button will show a list of skill sets that you currently possess.

Recommended Goals

  • Making space in your bag to carry equipment towards that class. If you do not have the necessary space, you might want to consider getting a larger bag. Equipment sets can help organize the kind of equipment you want.
    • If you are unsure what kind of equipment you need, Mages and Hunters are two classes that only need an equipment set that focuses on damage. Priests require both damage (that is, the same equipment for Mages) and healing (mana-focused equipment with more int and dex than magic on it). Warriors require both damage and tanking (defensive equipment having lots of armor, magic armor, stamina, etc.) equipment.
  • Gathering equipment for that class. Because you begin at level 1, you have to collect low level and high level armor that will help your character progress as they level. If you know beforehand to collect equipment instead of getting rid of it immediately, it will benefit you for your new class, and save time trying to get the same piece of equipment all over again.
    • Organizing your equipment sets to fit as many different roles as needed. For example, having both warrior and priest may cause you to create four equipment sets, two for damage dealing and healing on a priest, and two for damage dealing and tanking on a warrior.
  • Getting used to the feel of the new class, after already being experienced enough with your main class. In this case, you may want to ask players that have spent a lot of time in that class to teach you how to use it.
