Maybe this can provide more context "人間が三次職になる時と同じように", I can't figure out what this word means at all

  • 2
    What is the rest of the context? Not just the sentence, but where you saw it, who said it, the surrounding content etc.

  • The character is comparing the growth of spirits with the 三次職 of humans. 本来であれば、高位精霊が精霊王になるには、人間が三次職になる時と同じように、神の試練をクリアする必要がある。 Apr 30, 2021 at 0:15
  • Thank you for the full sentence, but the other information I mentioned would still be useful.

1 Answer 1


3次職 is "third-class jobs", "tier 3 job classes", "rank 3 jobs" or something like this. Typically, it is a kind of job a character can choose after mastering some 2次職 or 上級職 (advanced job), and you often have to clear some 試練-like event before actually upgrading your job. Ragnarok Online is probably one of the first games that popularized the term 3次職, but many games have similar systems with varying names.

  • Thank you very much Apr 30, 2021 at 1:21
  • I just noticed Ragnarok Online is planning to introduce even 4次職 :D
