There are currently four classes in Order & Chaos Online that each have strengths and weaknesses. Generally the classes are exactly what you would expect from any other MMO. Warriors are good at close combat and defense and use the heaviest armor, while rangers focus on long-range weapons and a lesser amount of in your face fighting. Mages can cast powerful offensive spells, while monks can heal with their spells. The rangers are the equivalent to a hunter/rogue combo without pets and the monks are much the same as priests with fists if making the comparison to World of Warcraft.

- Warrior – The warrior class is your basic melee based fighter. They may specialize in either offensive two hand friendly damage, or a sword and board (shield) protection based skill tree. They can wear any kind of armor and are usually great blacksmiths. They are the most straight forward of the classes to understand if you are new to the RPG genre.
|Combat Type||Close Combat Melee|
|Usable Armor||Cloth, Leather, Metal|
|Best Trade Skill||Blacksmith|
|Specs||Battle and Guardian|
- Monk – The monk is a hybrid character in that it casts spells that are focused on healing and buffing, but does melee damage with his fists. Imagine a buddhist monk combined with a boxing ninja. The monk is somewhere between a Paladin from other MMO’s (*cough* Warcraft) and a Priest. If you feel good and love aiding your fellow players then this is the class for you.
|Combat Type||Ranged Direct Damage and Crowd Control|
|Usable Armor||Cloth Only|
|Best Trade Skill||Tailoring|
|Specs||Divine and Military Monk|
- Ranger – Rangers specializes is doing heavy distance damage with bows, but can also specialize in a close quarters assassination role. If you are a fun of bows or back-stabs then this is the class for you.
|Combat Type||Ranged Bows and Stealthy Close Combat|
|Usable Armor||Cloth and Leather|
|Best Trade Skill||Leatherworking|
|Specs||Archery or Assassination|
- Mage – Just like in WoW, the Mage is a damage focused ranged based spell caster. Often dubbed the glass cannon. As a Mage you can choose between fire skills that are focused on doing direct mostly single target damage, and frost skills that include more crowd control. Just like in World of Warcraft, the Mage can only wear cloth and therefore Tailoring is the natural skill to take up. Basically if you love the Pew Pew (doing damage) and don’t mind being brittle (dieing a lot) then this is a great class.
