Valthirian Arc II was developed by 25-membered team and the sequel showcases significant changes from the first game which was released on 2010. At Valthirian Arc II, gamers can add classes to the school. The missions (Quests) are not merely fighting monsters. The quest can be finding a lost item or escorting a high-ranking person in travel. Other than the addition of class and quest variation, the players’ experience is enhanced by the more varied class level in this game.
A student passed his Apprenticeship will enter 1st tier level such as Knight that assigned to attack enemies, Scout who were assigned to create defense and moves the fastest, and Magi who uses magic to attack. When a student entering 2nd tier class, each student will be given two choices that significantly affect their role in battles. For example, a student who becomes Magi during 1st tier level can choose to be a Medicaor a Scholarsage. A Medica heals injured team members while a Scholarsage uses their magic to launch highly damaging attack to the enemies.
