''La Tale'' is a free-to-play {{MMORPG}} from Korea that's pretty obviously capitalizing on the success of ''Ghost Online'', ''Wind Slayer'', and ''MapleStory.'' Like ''Ghost Online'', ''Wind Slayer'', and ''Maple Story'', ''La Tale'' has sidescrolling gameplay and 2D sprites on painted backgrounds. Unlike one of its predecessors, however, it did away with god-awful grinding in favor of decent quests that give more XP and are generally easier to do. It also has a generally pleasant community.

* Wizard - Wizards are the obligatory SquishyWizard/Healer. Perhaps the most versatile class, they can learn offensive magic, defensive magic, healing magic, or a combination of the three. Wizards can use staves or daggers. Their class upgrades are Sorcerer which uses staves and orbs, and abandons healing magic in favor of improved versions of the same elemental spells they were already using, or Bards which use [[ImprobableWeaponUser musical instruments]], and give up access to earth, air, and fire spells in exchange for all the Sorcerer's improved water spells, as well as [[MagicMusic new healing spells, buffs, and special song attacks]]. Sorcerers become Elemental Masters, who gain even more powerful magic, and Bards become Minstrels, who gain what are easily the best buffs in the game. Their 4th promotions are the Archmage and the Pop Star. Their new subclasses are the Phantom Mage, who sports [[PowerGivesYouWings fairy wings]] and uses Battle Staffs, and the Maestro, who wields a conductor's baton and fights by [[ThePowerOfRock summoning orchestra players to attack]]. [[FightingClown Maestros look silly, but are considered extremely powerful.]]

* Card Master - Another new class introduced in Season 3, they are another magical class which utilizes a unique resource system, using cards instead of SP for their skills. To compensate, they have powerful skills with low cooldowns. Their two promotions are the High Master, which specializes in [[LightEmUp light elemental ranged attacks]], and the Battle Master, who utilize [[CastingAShadow dark elemental melee attacks.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: The Blader class line is not very flashy, but makes up for it with very long high damage combos.


Added DiffLines:

* MagicKnight: The Phantom Mage, the subclass of the Wizard, utilizes both Strength and Magic for their damage. [[JackOfAllStats This makes them benefit from ''all'' stats.]]


Added DiffLines:

* StanceSystem: The Soul Breaker gains two upon becoming a Soul Reaver, and gains a third one upon becoming a Soul Lord.
** [[GlassCannon Red Soul]]: Uses most of the original Soul Breaker skills, and specializes in high damage while moving quickly.
** [[StoneWall Blue Soul]]: Focuses more on support, crowd control, and damage mitigation, but they are no slouches in combat either thanks to their enhanced basic attacks.
** [[MightyGlacier Black Soul]]: Specializes in ''massive'' area-of-effect damage potential, but all skills have a lengthy cast time beforehand.

* Wanderer - Yet another new class introduced in Season 3, they are a physical class who specializes in both offense in support. They can use support skills with their Dark Jade, which is a lantern, and they can utilize their offense by transforming their lantern into a [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]], using it for fast and powerful combos and mobility. Like the Card Master, they use a unique resource for their skills. They can advance to the Shadow, then the Mystic, and finally the Black Anima.

* Warrior - halfway between a GlassCannon and a LightningBruiser, Warriors dish out huge amounts of damage, but have only average defense. They learn buffs that increase offense, critical hit chance, and accuracy. Warriors can use spears, [[{{BFS}} two-handed swords]], or knuckles. They can become Warlords, who wield spears or two-handed swords and use upgraded versions of the warrior skills, or Bladers, who use [[DualWielding dual blades]] and gain long basic attack combos in place of skills. Warlords become Dragoons, who gain even more powerful skills, and Bladers become Striders, who gain longer and stronger combos. Their 4th promotions are the Hero and the Blade Master. Their new subclasses are the Franchise/{{Highlander}}, who wield "[[FuumaShuriken Spiral Swords]]", and the Sword Dancer, who wields Psionic Blades via telekinesis.

** You can even buy access to a spa which just gives you exp as you sit in it.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Armor and fashion items can be enchanted to make you a lot more powerful

it. It's not very practical in later levels though...
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Armor and fashion items can be enchanted to make you a lot more powerfulpowerful.
** Not really the case with fashion items in Season 3 anymore, where ''all'' of them give no stats whatsoever, the only way to add stats to it is to use rare runes.



** It's toned down in Seasons 2 and 3.



** Sadly ''greatly'' nerfed in Season 3, to the point where they are the slowest methods to level up, and quests become the most viable option to level up even at high levels.

Added DiffLines:

** Unfortunately, with Season 3 introducing S rank types of equipment, Coliseum weapons become practically obsolete.


Added DiffLines:

** Not anymore in Seasons 2 and 3, though.


Added DiffLines:

** Luck and stamina have been toned down a little in Season 3, with stamina giving lesser HP, and luck no longer protects you from enemy criticals, but they are still the best stat to stack.

* Engineer - A new class, they fight entirely with toolboxes, and don't specialize in any one stat, though have skills that boost damage output and max HP. They can only promote to Meisters, who ride mechas, though are also the only class that can function perfectly well unpromoted. Meisters become Engistars, who gain new tricks with their robot, and have a skill that makes them invincible ''and'' fully restores their HP. Their 4th promotion is the Swordian, who have the ability to fight in HumongousMecha. Their new subclass is the Star Seeker, who trades the mecha for several robot summons.
* Soul Breaker - Another new class, they use soul stones in battle, and their abilities consist of [[SoulPower borrowing the ability of monsters]] and using it against them. They mainly specialize in magic, just like Wizards. They can only promote to the Soul Reaver, who gains more abilities, and then the [[GameBreaker oh so powerful]] Soul Lords. Their 4th promotion is the even ''more'' powerful Soulless One. They are one of the classes without a subclass.
