In Blades Tale, there are four classes or “WPNs”. Before your adventure begins, you will be able to select a WPN of your choice – Sword (Warrior/Paladin), Fist (Monk/Martial Artist), Bow (Archer) and Parasol (Wizard/Mage). You can change you WPNs any time during your adventure.
Once you select a class, you can start your adventure. After completing a few quests, you will meet an NPC who will allow you to change your WPN.
Your character’s class is determined by the weapon equipped to your hero. To change a class anytime during your adventure, you must equip a weapon that’s linked to a class. For example: if you want to change your class from “Sword” to “Bow”, you will have to select the bow. Here’s how you can do this:
1. Tap on your hero’s portrait on the upper-left corner of the screen.
2. On the hero page, tap on your “Bag” on the right side of the screen.
3. Now tap the “equip” tab and then tap on a weapon that’s different from the current WPN’s weapon.
4. A new weapon comparison window will pop up on the screen.
5. Tap the “Equipment” button on the lower-right side of the weapon screen.
That’s it! You have successfully changed your class. Your player level remains the same even after changing to a new class.
To acquire new weapons pertaining to each class, keep completing quests. Don’t forget to open treasure chest rewards in your “bag” as they may contain some of those weapons. Once you obtain all four weapons, start switching to a new WPN or class by just choosing a new weapon which is connected to a class. When you select a new weapon from the bag, you not only change a WPN, but also change all skills under that WPN.
Choose your class wisely as each class or WPN has a set of unique active skills and passive skills. The effect and damage vary from one class’s skill to another. During combat, tap on each skill located on the lower-left corner of the screen to unleash devastating effects. Advanced active skills and passive skills unlock when you reach higher levels.
You will unlock the skills menu when your character reaches level 4. Complete quests to gain EXP and keep upgrading your character until you reach level four. When unlocked, tap “Skill” on the right side of the screen. You can then view all active and passive skills under each WPN and know their strengths.
