Description

This job is intended for newcomers to the game, as it allows them to play the game without giving them an important field to work in.

Responsibilities

  • No particular responsibilities are assigned to Assistants.

Starting Skills

Skills that an Assistant starts with:

Starting Equipment

Talents

Assistants Talents talents are mostly divided into 3 categories helpful to beginners: Survivability, becoming an apprentice, and becoming a clown.

The Grayshirt Specialization is filled with survival buffs which are aimed at making it easier to survive and decreasing the penalties for dying. It ends with a recipe for the Petraptor Egg, which can hatch a friendly Petraptor pet that can keep the player company both in, and outside the submarine.

The Apprentice Specialization allows the Assistant to become an Apprentice of a chosen Job, giving buffs and bonuses to the Assistant and the Job that is being apprenticed. It ends in gaining all talents from a random Specialization of the chosen Job.

The Clown Specialization is meant for Assistants who dream of being a funny jester. It grants a lot of buffs when wearing a full clown outfit, and unlocks a recipe for the Clown Diving Mask, which allows the Clown to remain themself even during floods. Additionally, the Bike Horn and the Toy Hammer receive special abilities.
