- Humans are well-balanced, and do not have any particular strengths or weaknesses. Humans are not restricted from any class choices.
- Elves are natural magic users, but not as strong as humans. They make the best mages.
- Dwarves are short but stocky, and have great strength despite their size. In turn, they are not well suited for magic but do make natural fighters.
- Gnomes are smaller than humans. They can use magic well and are naturally agile, but in turn are weaker.
- Porklu are a new race unique to Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls. They are small in size and resemble Hobbitsfrom the Lord of the Rings. They make the best thieves and ninjas.
See Races for more details.
- Prerequisite: STR 12
- Special Skill: Trick Attack (a three-hit attack)
- The 'basic' choice for class. They can deal damage and take damage well.
- Fighters do not receive any particular bonuses, nor do they suffer from any particular weaknesses. They are best suited to the Front Row, taking damage in place of weaker characters.
- Prerequisite: INT 12
- Special Skill: Magic Boost (doubles the damage from the next magical attack)
- Mages can deal great amounts of damage with their spells, but are not as hardy and can take less damage themselves. They are best suited to the Back Row, casting offensive magic spells.
- Priests are even more fragile than mages, but can heal party members damage as well as revive them from death during a battle. They are best suited to the Back Row, healing their party and using defensive magic spells.
- Thieves deal great damage and can easily dodge enemy attacks, but are not as hardy as fighters. They are a must when it comes to dealing with traps, opening chests and/or doors, or locating hidden entrances.
- Special Skill: Appraise (discovers what an unidentified item actually is)
- Bishops are the 'augmented' version of priests, can heal well but are much better at casting spells beneficial to the party. Be wary of failing appraisals though; you may end up spending that cash you saved by doing appraisals healing at the temple instead.
- Special Skill: Sougeki-Hamon no Jin (one attack on all enemies of a single group)
- Samurai are much deadlier than fighters, and are the only class able to make use of the katana.
- Prerequisites: STR 15, INT 12, PIE 12, VIT 15, AGI 14, LUC 15, Good
- Special Skill: Huge Shield (prevents damage to allies)
- Lords are a fighter-type, with the same damage-output as fighters, but are able to heal (but not to the same degree as priests). This is the class of choice if you want a Tank (the character that ends up taking the majority of the damage for the party).
- Prerequisites: STR 15, INT 15, PIE 15, VIT 15, AGI 15, LUC 15, Evil
- Special Skill: Assassination
- Ideal Races: Porklu
- Ninja are extremely agile like thieves, but are more difficult to play than the other classes (due to their high attribute requirements as well as their alignment). Assassination, the ability to defeat the strongest of foes via a single attack, is their specialty.
See Classes for more details.
