Female and Male Mercenary.



The Mercenary class is normally the first choice of newer players. These hack and slash characters are easy to level and don't require much money to raise. Being basically just click and wait they make it easier to learn the game mechanics. There are many types of Mercenaries those going for Blade on second job would go mostly Dexterity. If you see someone who is but a blur as they hack away then most likely you have just encountered a Blade. Those going Knight would go more for Stamina. The Knight class is what most players fondly refer to when they speak of the human meet shield. These guys can take a hit.
