As with most games, choosing your class in Phantasy Star Online 2 is a pretty big decision. Not only will it determine your playstyle throughout the game, but it will also have an impact on your character’s stats and abilities. In this guide, we are going to take a look at every Phantasy Star Online 2 class, so you’ll be able to make an educated decision.

As you can see, there is pretty much a class for every type of player in Phantasy Star Online 2. Further, since you can easily change up classes whenever you’d like, it’s worth trying out a few different ones to get a feel for the class that suits you. As you level up, you’ll also be able to choose from three different Successor Classes, but these will require you to have at least two of the main classes at Level 75. However, they have some unique abilities that the main classes don’t. 

Phantasy Star Online 2 was originally released in Japan in 2012 and then on the Vita in Japan in 2013. At E3 2019, it was announced that Phantasy Star Online 2 would receive a western release after lots of pleading and begging from fans.
