A character’s class is similar to a profession or career. It is what your character worked and trained at while growing up. Classes are divided into four general occupations: warrior, wizard, priest, and rogue. Each group is composed of several similar character classes. Most include a number of character kits, which further specialize a character’s abilities.

Multi-class characters are available to non-humans only. Human characters can become dual-class later in the game. Multi-class characters may not make use of class kits (except for gnomes that multi-class as Illusionists). Dual-class characters may not use kits for their second class.
