A character's class is the character type he/she has chosen to use. Class choice is restricted by race choice, since not all races can be all classes.
The "Perfect World Classes" below are the classes that are available to all players when creating a character.
Perfect World Classes Edit
There are eight classes that are available to starting players, depending on chosen race.
Human Blademasters are close combat warriors who are potent with or without weapons. They are swift, agile, and quick to attack and evade assailants.

Winged Elf Clerics can heal, curse, and can call on the elements of lightning and wind to do their bidding. They can even raise fallen comrades in battle. Compared with Clerics in other games, PWI clerics are powerful spellcasters. Their ability to solo is perfect for a game where, moreso even than other MMOs, players do not team regularly until higher levels.

Tideborn Psychics are mostly a spellcaster class, with the ability to heal. They can adjust their damage output and defense, raising one a lot and lowering the other a little, as is tactically most desirable. They use Earth and Water magic.
