A Wavemaster (呪紋使い, Jumon-zukai lit. Curse Crest User) is the mage class in The World. Although they are physically the weakest class, being capable of equipping only the lightest armor, they have outstanding magical stats and can equip rods capable of using the most powerful Lv. 4 spells. In Legend of the Twilight, Reki and Magi use tomes in place of rods, but it is unknown whether these are an administrator feature or a new weapon for the whole class.
Wavemasters are considered a party staple in The World, due to their high SP rating. The World:R2 divides the former Wavemaster class into attack-based, healing-based and buff-based classes. Helba and Tsukasa are two infamous Wavemasters.
In .hack//SIGN, Wavemasters had the innate ability to reveal hidden areas (similar to the Fairy's Orb item.
Unlike other classes in The World, Wavemasters have no physical attack skills. To make up for this, they are the only class that can cast level 4 summon magic, the most powerful spells in the game. Twin Blades are the only other class capable of casting level 4 summon magic, but only if the final Goblin set of equipment is equipped.
