PCs in SW2.0 can use a variety of classes to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals.

The different classes PCs can use are described and detailed here.

Uses of each classEdit

As PCs in SW2.0 spend experience to gain classes, they gain the ability to perform different tasks. As these classes increase, they also become better at those tasks. As they gain more classes, they become able to do a greater variety of things.

Each class is described below, along with the things that can be accomplished with each class.

Martial ClassesEdit

There are four martial classes, and all of them relate to fighting enemies. Each of them is unique, and they use different weapons and armor.

Since the abilities and allowed actions of the fighter, grappler, and fencer classes are virtually the same, you may want to level only one of those three classes.

Fighter (Major)Edit

The class for standing in front of the enemy and fighting with weapons. This class is the strongest with weapons and armor. You will be able to use all the equipment and items (except ranged weapons) your strength allows.

The fighter class lets you use the following actions.

  • Accuracy
  • Evasion
  • Calculated Damage

When you deal calculated damage as a fighter, add your class level and strength modifier as bonus damage.<br

Grappler (Major)Edit

This class forsakes weapons to attack with punches and kicks. You may only use weapons from the grappling category and with a low enough strength rating. You may only equip armor specifically designated as usable by grapplers. If you wield a shield, you may not use any of the grappler class benefits.

The grappler's damage and defense are less than a fighters, but the grappler class allows you to learn the combat feats Chain Attack and Throw Attack. Use these well in combination and you should be able to outdo a fighter.

The grappler class lets you use the following actions.

  • Accuracy
  • Evasion
  • Calculated Damage

When you deal damage as a grappler, add your class level and strength modifier as bonus damage.

Fencer (Minor)Edit

With this class, you attack nimbly at the enemy's weak points. To use this class, you must only choose weapons, armor, and shields up to half your strength score. For example, if you have 15 strength, you would be able to equip a weapon, armor, an shield up to strength 8.

When you attack with this class, your weapon's critical threshold is one point less (criticals become more likely). Your chaining ability is less than a fighter or grappler, but you deal higher burst damage when you deal a critical hit. Also, this class is useful because it takes less experience to advance (as it's on the Minor experience table), so you can level it at the same time as another combat class.

The fencer class lets you use the following actions.

  • Accuracy
  • Evasion
  • Calculated Damage

When you deal damage as a fencer, add your class level and strength modifier as bonus damage.

Marksman (Minor)Edit

The only martial class that attacks with ranged weapons. The marksman can wield any ranged weapon he can equip with his strength score. Marksmen can wear any armor, but they do not add their class level to their evasion rolls.

The damage bonus of ranged weapons depends on the weapon category. The bow category, as with melee, determines damage from the die roll, then adds the marksman class level and strength modifier as bonus damage. Crossbow weapons don't add class level or strength modifier, but gain bonus damage from the specific weapon.

Guns use the calculated damage of their ammunition, so marksman level is not considered (but gunmage level is).

The marksman class lets you use the following actions.

  • Accuracy
  • Calculated Damage

When you deal damage as a marksman, the type of bonus damage depends on the weapon. Consult Ranged Weapons.

There are five magical classes, and each learns a different set of spells. Each of them also have different requirements, so make sure you check whenever you learn a new magic class. Consult Magic.
