I would also like to add that your character doesn't "become" promoted in a real sense.Kahooli wrote:Can anybody clarify the way promotion system is working? "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.
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.
