The Xenoblade Chronicles X Japanese website has been updated with tons of new information about the class system in the game, including the main weapons of each class and some of the areas where the class is more effective than others. Of course these classes closely mirror typical RPG tropes, but there’s some interesting information to be had here for those who are eagerly awaiting the upcoming JRPG.

The first class is the Drifter, which can then branch out into three different classes once you hit rank 10 as a drifter. Drifter is a balanced class that is capable of using knives and assault rifles. The branches of the class are Assault, Command, and Forcer.

  • Assault: excel at both offensive and defensive Arts. They have higher stats when it comes to HP and Fighting power.
    • Equipment: Long Swords, Assault Rifles
  • Command: uses various Arts to damage enemies. Their stats focus more on Fighting, Shooting, and Evasion.
    • Equipment: Dual Swords, Dual Guns
  • Forcer: a remote support-type that has many Shooting Arts. Their stats are higher on Shooting power and Latent Abilities.
    • Equipment: Knives, Ray Guns.

Also included in the update to the website is a look at some of the status effects that can change your tactics in dealing with multiple battles. The biggest variable for these is weather effects, which can change how the battle will go based on its effects. So far, the details include a Heat and Bolt weather debuff, both of which can have a negative affect on your party.
