In Aetheria, there are three tiers of professions, otherwise known as 'jobs' or simply 'classes'. The three tiers are known as:

  • Basic
  • Advanced
  • Uncharted/Secret

A character unlocks the ability to add more classes as they level up, which opens up the possibility of multiclassing. Most characters choose a "Primary" class, then choose other classes to complement their Primary class. It is worth noting that choosing a Primary class causes that class's bonuses to improve

All professions could be placed in what was called a class “tree”:

  • Fighter -- These classes, as their name suggests, fight! These classes are more powerful in groups.
  • Rogue -- These classes move fast and they don't have many tanky abilities, but being able dodge attacks well compensates. DPS of these classes is, on average, the same as fighter classes, but the overall range of DPS is higher.
  • Mage -- A class that uses magic against enemies.
  • Priest -- Almost every priest gets some kind of healing ability. Some are primarily healers, others use it to support more offensive techniques. Priests generally provide magical support.
  • Craftsman -- These classes don't fight. Instead, they craft/enchant/buff items for their team members. Craftsmen/women generally provide physical assistance.

A successful group typically had 1 or 2 fighters/rogues, 1 or 2 mages, and a priest.

It should be known that some fighter or mage professions were sometimes labeled as "Carries" or even "Hypercarries". These were professions with such damage output that they were capable of "carrying" their team to victory; the only professions among the base professions labeled as Carries were the Stalker (and most likely Assassin along with it) and Nethermancer (and probably Lich, as it's a direct upgrade from Nethermancer). However, it should also be known that carrying is very difficult, and could go terribly wrong. It was ALWAYS recommended to work together so that there wasn't that much reliance on a single player.

Notes:

AoE stands for 'area of effect' - an ability that can affect multiple targets, like the explosion from Fire Cube. Most AoE attacks are explosions or otherwise spread out slightly; TNT blasts and splash potions are classic examples.

CC stands for 'crowd control' - an ability that can effectively stun, immobilize, frighten or otherwise disable a group.

DoT is damage over time - an ability that can cause continuous damage after landing a hit.

Another Note: A Neophyte is a term applied to someone who has not chosen a class. =

Blanks mean unknown. If there are none, it'll say none.

Some of these level up bonuses, max levels, and max level bonuses may be outdated.
