– The Knight is very food-intensive and requires strategic use to manage hunger before the fight is over
– Ability: Power Smash – damages and knocks back a monster one space

Black Mage

– Powerful offensive magic
– In the beginning, it is a hard job to master, because of its vulnerability to attack and limited restoration spells

– It’s a “late bloomer” job that specializes in offensive magic

– Only players who are confident in their dungeon exploration skills should take on these challenges

New Buddy System

– Buddy Points accumulate for individual monster species
