This is the first class you will use when you start the game. Novices have little in the way of special abilities and their job level limit is 10, but they serve only as a temporary introductory class for new players (or a big leveling challenge for older ones). Novices can change to any first job, with the exception of Supernovice, when they have learned all of the Basic Skills.
