Credits: Echo of Soul Beginner Guide: Professions Introduction by TailofJuly
When doing quests in Echo of Soul, players will often find that they have to collect some certain items like herbs and mine. Here is a brief introduction about the professions in Echo of Soul. There are 3 main professions and 2 secondary professions. You can only choose 1 main profession, but both secondary professions are obtainable.
Main professional classes include Alchemist, Resource Collector and Gem Craftsman.
Introduction: Alchemist can produce drugs that can restore HP, earrings, rings and the important items that can give your team all kinds of buffs, which plays an important role in dungeons. He can be an equipment expert but also self-suffient. So I would recommend this profession to most of the players.
Introduction: Players will see mines and herbs in the wild area but they can only be gathered by Resource Collector. Mines and herbs are the necessary raw materials to produce other items so it's a must-pick profession for material merchants.
Introduction: The demand for gems at the early stage is low, thus not many players will choose to be a Gem Craftsman. Then what can Gem Craftsman do in the beginning of the game? They have the ability to produce bracelet and necklace. They have a huge potential in the late game with high demands from other players. Besides, Gem Craftsman has an unique skill - they can take out the gem from the equipment and they can transform the type of the gems when they are skillful enough.
Below are the use of the gems:
Emerald: increase defense
Amethyst: increase dodge
Topaz: increase max HP
Ruby: increase attack damage
Olivine: increase armor penetration
Sapphire: increase hit ratio
Agate: increase critical strike
Assistant classes introduction: there are two assistant classes in the game - Soul Expert and Cook but players can learn both at the same time.
Soul Expert: as a special system in Echo of Soul, we can see many powerful soul skills at the early game while soul expert can make various items and scrolls with soul fragments, which are useful in the battle.
Cook: the material source is very simple. Players can gain many materials when doing quests. I suggest players learn this skill as early as possible or you can't make high level food due to the low proficiency.
