This is the one of first Item-related classes available in the game, and it focuses on using Herbs. While the stat requirements would suggest this to be a Rank 4 class and it is Rank 4 on the X360, it is considered a Rank 5 class on the PC.

|Master Scout||STR 47 or INT 47|
|Lordly Scout||STR 50 or INT 50|
|Legendary Scout||STR 54 or INT 54|
How to Obtain:
This is one of the easiest classes to obtain in the game, simply using Herbs until the Item > Mystic requirement is met will get this class from any of the previous classes. Since this class has lower stat requirements than any other Rank 5 class, using Herbs early in the game can ruin any class progression by getting this class. To avoid this make sure to keep Mystic and/or Weapon skills well above Item skills.
On the X360, don't expect any unit to progress into this class as it's a hybrid class.
Since the stat requirements for this class are quite low, it will take some time before changing out of it. The Rank 6 classes are not available until you reach 53 in one of STR or INT. The easiest upgrades from this class are the Item-related ones:
- Assassin: requires One-Handed 15 and Sword 13, STR53+ or INT53+
- Alchemist: highest Item skill is Shards, STR53+ or INT53+
Changing into the Mystic + Combat classes from here will require training Mystics to become a significant skill group. Since those classes also require high Wield Style levels, this means raising both Mystics and Weapons above Items unless only normal attacks are used.
- Ataraxian: requires Dual Two-Handed 17, STR53+ or INT53+
- Ninja: requires Dual Wield 22 and Katana 19, STR59+ or INT59+
Training Wards is another option. The class obtained will depend on STR or INT significance, and meeting the skill requirements:
- Gladiator: requires Mystic>Item, Power Grip 16, highest Mystic skill is Wards, STR53+
- Commander: highest Mystic skill is Wards, INT53+
X360 Upgrade Options:
There is only one upgrade option:
- Guardian: Item > Mystics, STR47+
