"Promotions Visual Guide", if I understood it correctly, shows that Master Wizard from MM6 can become Archmage and after that Master Necromancer (and vice versa), and later Lich. Similar thing with High Priest from MM6. I wonder how it's implemented, taking in consideration the fact that in MM7 Archmage and Master Necro are mutually exclusive. Just want to know what current party may potentially become.
I would also like to add that your character doesn't "become" promoted in a real sense.
What happens internally that those are all just classes, and the "promotion", when it boils down to the base, is just a class change. You change one class to another. And the other one has higher limits in vanilla and better stat gains and such.
If you "promote" a class that has a skill the class being promoted into doesn't have, then you are allowed to keep that skill and expertise. (last time I checked, unless Rodril changed that.) With the exception of the magic thingie mentioned, that is lost.
