One great thing about Final Fantasy XIV Online is the ability to change classes and jobs very quickly. This particular aspect of the game allows players to take on any role they want without retraining up their characters or needing to make an alternative character just for a new job or class. Those who have not made up their minds yet on whether they want to buy the game still have choices of up to 25 classes and jobs before deciding on one. In this guide, we will show you how to change classes and jobs in Final Fantasy XIV Online.
