A Job Skill is a large trade-oriented set of skills that player characters may learn in order to gather, make, or enhance items that can be used in Final Cross gameplay . Job Skills are both learned and improved from a NPC trainer (or sometimes with recipes), for a cost or occasionally directly from a quest NPC trainer. Job Skills can be learned by the correct non-combat job regardless of their character race.
Through practice, a character gains skill levels within the job skill and becomes more capable within that job skill.
There are seven broad skill levels that constrain how much skill points you can acquire within your job skill.Your character's carrying capacity will also increase for each level you gain in your Job Skill, with a big bonus at level 100.
Primary job skill and secondary job skill Edit
Two classes of job skills exist: primary job skills and secondary job skills. You can have only up to two primary job skill at any time (but are not required to take any). You can have any number of the secondary job skill, and they do not count against your two primary job skil limit.
Category of JobEdit
Job Skills fall into one of three categories:Edit
"Geathering Job Skill" gether or hervest items from resource nodes throughout the game world to supply ingredient materials ('mats') for crafting job skills. Occasionally, these harvested items will be directly useful. The gathered materials can be sold in the auction house or sold to NPC vendors.
"Production Job Skill" make items from other ingredients items (herbs, bars, meats, etc.) these "production job skills".Are crafting or building. Most of the items produced will be directly useful, but some will be ingredients for further crafting. The products can be sold in the auction house or to NPC vendors.
"Service Job Skill" provide a service, such as buffing items. These will generally change the properties of an existing item without changing the in-game identity of the item. Characters that want to make money with a service job skill will usually have to actively solicit NPC vendors.
