A Vocation is a specific 'job' or 'class' that effects a given character's attributes, which weapons and armour they can equip, which spells they can use in battle, and so on. The Vocation system enables the player to customize their characters' statistics and useable abilities by regularly leveling up and manipulating their current Vocation.
Once a specific point in the story has been reached, the party planning place hosted by Patty at The Quester's Rest Inn in Stornway becomes available for use. Taking advantage of this feature, the player can create new characters to accompany the Hero during their travels and fight alongside them in their party. When creating a character for the team, the new character's Vocation is manually selectable by the player and therefore introduces some more variety and strategy into forthcoming battles.
The Hero begins their adventure as a member of the Minstrel Vocation by default - a class considered to be something of an all-rounder as far as combat capabilities go. However, after defeating the Master of Nu'un at the Tower of Trades, Jack of Alltrades's Vocation-changing services become available at Alltrades Abbey.
At first, only the six basic Vocations are open for selection, but other, decidedly more specialized Vocations exist and can be unlocked by completing the appropriate Quests.
Upon reaching the maximum level in a specific vocation (the 99th level), the player has the option re-Vocate and get a special ultra-rare item in reward of their efforts.
