Lost Ark has finally arrived in the West. Published by Amazon Games, this game brings a fresh playstyle with hack-and-slash mechanics and a focus on PvE and exploration, as well as many elements from traditional MMO games.

The game’s character creation menu features among the most old-school elements from the genre. Your choices will be more or less definitive when creating your character, so you’ll have to take your time and choose your server, class, and other character features, wisely.

Your character’s class is almost certainly the most crucial choice you’ll have to make in character creation. It’ll determine its race, and sometimes even gender. In addition, you won’t be able to switch classes easily.

Can you change your class?

Contrary to other MMO games, such as Final Fantasy XIV and Ragnarok Online, Lost Arks developers have taken the decision to make class and advanced class choices definitive.

At the time of writing, there is no way to change class on your existing character. You won’t be able to buy an item to switch classes or take a quest in the game. You’ll have to create a new character if you’re desperate for a new class.

Fortunately, players who enjoy creating alternative characters will have a way to speed up the leveling process when creating a new one using the Powerpass, which offers a skip to level 50. Thanks to his item, they’ll be able to enjoy the endgame on a new class at a faster pace.

Still, keep in mind that you’ll be bound by your choice when starting a new character. If you’re unsure of which class to pick, here’s a guide to help you choose. You can also test out each class’ playstyle when creating your character to have a better grasp of what they offer.
