New characters that have been introduced include Ronan the Spell Knight, Lass the Thief, Ryan the Druid, Amy the Dancer, Jin the Fighter, Sieghart the Gladiator, Mari the Rune Caster, Dio the Stygian, Zero the Wanderer, Ley the Summoner, Rufus the Bounty Hunter, Rin the Phoenix, Asin the Disciple, Lime the Holy Knight, Edel the Captain, and Veigas the Magi.
In order to play a character, it must first be placed in an empty character slot: there are four empty slots for the player to pick and put in his/her characters in by default, and additional ones can be created by using "Character Slot Tickets" that can be purchased from the cash shop or obtained from events. With an open slot, any character can be unlocked. However, once a character is selected, the choice cannot be undone.
Previously, all characters except Elesis, Lire, Arme, Edel, and Veigas (as well as Sieghart and Rufus in the Korean server) required quests in order to unlock and play as them. That has since been removed.
Character Stat Distribution
Stats can increase by leveling up or unlocking job advancements. However, majority of stats will come from wearing equipment. While most equipment including their properties give the same stats regardless of character, all standard basic equipment (Helm, Upper Armor, Lower Armor, Gloves and Shoes) give varying amounts.
Note: The difference of stats from basic equipment between different characters is actually minor, even between Very High and Low. This table only serves to explain the discrepancy of stats between different characters wearing the same equipment. Also, the total stats of similar sets are always equal. Likewise, the average stat distribution of each character is always Neutral.
