|High Sea Saga Guide ✍|
Each crew can have one job at a time. Each job has its own max level, stats growth, and equipment proficiency, skill and ability. There are 49 known Jobs in the game. Jobs are unlocked once a crew member meets all the requirements (see "requirements" column on table below).
To change to a job, a minimum knowledge skill level is required and in some cases Mastered Job(s) (Referred as 'Jobs' in the requirements column). When changing job, the knowledge skill level(s) will be consumed but Mastered Job(s) will stay. to gain said knowledge you need to use facilities.
Once a job is maxed, crew will get permanent job mastery bonus to their stats (symbolized by a star on the job picture). The mastered job's skill will then be available to set regardless what the current job is.
Ability is a special skill that each crew has. A crew's ability depends on what job type they were when they were recruited (Original Job). Ability will not change even when the crew changed to other Jobs.
Ability (and as such Original Job) can be changed using item Ability Sphere ## where ## indicates the job's number(referred as # in the table) which ability can be installed to chosen crew member. (unlocket at rank >80)
e.g Ability Sphere 6 refer to job #6 (Trader)'s ability.
If you master all 49 jobs, your job mastery will disappear. You can get then remaster all the jobs and get the mastery bonuses again after.
Several job abilities have maximum value: sailor, cook, nomad, doctor, bookie, pilot.
- Sailor: Ship speed + 2 (max 10). Recruit place: about everywhere
- Cook: Stamina recovery -10 sec (max -60). Recruit place: ?
- Nomad: Quest stamina -1 (max 2). Recruit place: beginner quest: Rude Nomad; Neighbor Island's repeatable quest
- Doctor: Cost to hire crew -5% (Max 30%). Recruit place: Mellow Island's repeatable quest, Kairo Island
- Bookie: Dice Game cost -1 medal (max2). Recruit place: Pressing Island, Calm Island, Forgetful Island, Tired Island, Gotcha Island, Heavy Island
- Pilot: Stamina for sailing -1 (max 2). Recruit place: Heavy Island
- (Wizard): Can bring monsters on quest (carrying more than one would not allow the max number of monster brought to battle, so effectively max 1)
Other than the recruit places mentioned above, you might sometimes found them on sea battles. Once you found them you might want to recruit them to the maximum limit (TIP: you can name them "Cook 1-6" thru "Cook 6-6", "Doctor 1-6" thru "Doctor 6-6" for example), since job changing would not trigger these abilities (unlike job changing to joiner, or trader/smith/genius/dealer that would still trigger their shop opening abilities). TIP: find the 2-starred ones that cost as low as 1 medal. Alternatively, you can try your luck in taverns (cost as low as 2 medals, but you might get 3-starred ones)
Dismissing crew member, if done right, could provide huge boost that beneficial to the other crew. See tips on how to maximize low leveled crew's knowledge gaining speed, and then dismissing them, get knowledge books in return, use them to power up your main crew members. Dismissing trader/smith/genius/dealer would also generate smith ticket of their respective trade (weapon/head/armor/accessories).
Info and Stats GrowthEdit
"#" indicates the position of the job in the job changing list starting from left to right. It also help identify the Ability Sphere Items effect.
Weapon and Armor ProficienciesEdit
If a crew has a bad proficiency to equip certain weapons or armors(marked as ) , his/her performance will be reduced as in slower attack speed, slower movement etc.
On the contrary, if the crew has a good proficiency (marked as ), he will have faster attack speed, better evasion etc.
Recruiting(Finding) Crew(s) with Specific Job Edit
There are 4 ways to recruit crew(s).
- Playing Dice Game
Playing Dice Game will give a chance to find crew(s). They usually have higher starting attributes than normal crew(s) recruited by other methods. Unfortunately, there's no known sure way to find a specific Job via this method. Also this method may consume a lot of medals.
- Defeating opponent in online Battle
Winnning in online battles allows the winner to recruit a crew of the loser. Crew(s) recruited via this method will have the original Job as when they're recruited[Confirm]. This method requires a lot of stamina and a good party that has a good chance to win online battles. Again there's no sure way to find a specific Job via this method.
During questing, players may recruit captured NPCs as crew. Quest's location will determine possible capturable NPCs with specific Job. The downside for this is that not all Jobs can be found via this method. See Islands for Locations to find capturable NPCs list.
- Tavern Recruitment
Crew(s) can also be recruited via Tavern. What jobs that can be hired are determined by the tavern rank chosen. Like the questing method, not all Jobs are available for recruiting this way. And this method also consumes medals.
