Eorzea is home to myriad disciplines, or classes, suitable to every adventuring style. Each class is capable of performing unique actions acquired through experience. Furthermore, achieving a certain level of mastery in multiple classes will unlock jobs, which feature even greater specialization.
To be better prepared to brave the wilds, all adventurers begin their journey as either a Disciple of War—a master of arms who lives for the call of battle—or a Disciple of Magic—an erudite researcher of all things esoteric.
Experienced adventurers can take up other martial classes to diversify their skills. If you seek more peaceful pursuits, you may consider becoming a Disciple of the Land—one who gathers and harvests Eorzea’s natural resources—or a Disciple of the Hand—one who uses these resources to craft wares and turn a profit.
