Class selection

The first thing to decide is the class of your character. While not technically part of character customization in most games, in Lost Ark gender, body types, and certain customization features are only available to certain classes.

You can choose from five basic classes: warrior, mage, martial artist, gunner and assassin. Note that some classes are reserved for men (Warriors) or women (Mages and Assassins). Martial Artists and Gunners are each split by gender as their respective advanced classes are gender specific
