Role Requirements

When matching with a party, there are no role requirements or restrictions for parties. Moreover, players can freely change to any job or class that has reached level 90.
* Players can only change their class or job outside of combat.

Variant Actions and Attribute Adjustments

To allow for greater freedom of role choices, variant dungeons grant players the use of special variant actions. These actions mimic existing abilities such as Cure or Rampart.
Moreover, certain attributes will also be adjusted to compensate for the disparity of strength between certain roles, alleviating the need for dedicated tanks, DPS, or healers.

Setting Variant Actions

Variant actions can be selected from the V&C Dungeon Finder window. Players may have up to two variant actions at any given time, and are free to change them at any time, even after entering the dungeon.
* Available variant actions will differ according to your role.

By speaking with Trisassant in Old Sharlayan (X:11.9 Y:13.3), players can exchange tokens obtained from completing criterion dungeons for various goods.

* Item level restrictions and role requirements do not apply when registering with four players.

Party Composition Bonus

Upon entering Another Sil’dihn Subterrane, party members will gain a bonus to damage dealt according to the composition of their party. The bonus increases with the number of jobs in your party that rely on actions that affect the entire party.

This bonus system is intended to compensate for the proportional decrease in utility of such actions as party size decreases.
* The effectiveness of the damage bonus will differ between roles.
* This bonus will only be applied to jobs and has no effect on classes.
