A character's Main Job is the primary job he/she has chosen to use, and which will gain or lose any Experience Points. A Support Job (subjob) is a secondary job, restricted, if applicable, to half the level of the Main Job, which provides access to additional Job Abilities and Job Traits based upon the restricted level of the subjob.

The "Standard Jobs" below are those jobs that are available to all players at the beginning of the game. The "Extra Jobs" are available upon completion of certain quests.
