A Class, sometimes called a Job, is a specialization chosen by players when they create their Player Characters. Each class has its own advantages and disadvantages.
The World Classes
In the original version of The World, there were six classes.
The World Expansion Packs
As The World released more expansion packs, more classes were introduced.
In an email chain triggered by the "How are you?" greeting card, Gaspard mentions that The World had even more job classed before the servers were destroyed. In an email, Gaspard is overjoyed at finding the last of 31 class cards for his collection. The card is called "Werewolf Tribe," and Gaspard comments that it was the last job class to be added to R:1. This implies that R:1 had 20 to 31 job classes, depending on whether Gaspard included the R:2 classes in his count.
- Archer (Official name and status unknown)
- Knuckle Master (Tentative English name)
- Werewolf (Not a primary class - available only through the "Class Change" campaign)
