Classes are the determining factor for a character's stats and abilities in Phantasy Star Online 2. There are currently nine basic classes - only six of which may be selected on character creation - and three successor classes, with a fourth on the way. A character may freely change between their available classes in the ARKS Lobby at the Class Counter, with each one earning experience and levels independently of one another. Through the completion of Koffie's Subclass License order, a character may also select a subclass - out of any besides Hero.
