There are currently 4 classes for Cube World. Each class has 2 sub-classes, for a total of 8 sub-classes. These are called specializations. Each specialization will change your character in some significant way, allowing you to specialize your character how it fits you best. Choosing a specialization is free while a character is level 1. Once it levels up, you must see the class trainer in a city in order to change specialization and/or alter your skill choices. All characters start out with the default specialization for their class.
