=======================================================================
1. Introduction

 Some of the people visiting this FAQ may know me from the message board. If
not, I'll introduce myself. I'm AbsoluteZero. Enough said.
 Now, you may be wondering what the FAQ's all about. First of all, it's not
really an FAQ. It's a challenge for veterans to the game. It's very much like
Tw1light's Single Character Challenge. Mine is a Class Change Challenge,
inspired by the popularity of Tw1light's challenge. That means you only class
change ONCE or no times in the game. Now, really, it doesn't make much of a
difference if you do the single Class Change Challenge, because you're only
your 2nd class for the tail end of the game. That's what the No Class Change
Challenge is all about.
 The No Class Change challenge is for people like myself who have beaten the
game multiple times and are bored. There's NO class changing!! Only two
characters have spells! MWAHAHA! Okay, acting sanely now, this is for EXPERTS
ONLY. If you've beaten the game more than once, consider yourself an expert.
Even if you haven't beaten the game more than once, you can still try, although
it's not recommended.
 Then there's the Half Class Change Challenge. You class change one or two
characters once, and you don't class change the other(s), ever. That makes it a
half and half of the other challenges.
 Now, on to section 2!
=======================================================================
2. Rules/Notes
                                       Notes
-I'm not entirely sure if an NCCC is possible. For example, if you have all
your characters with the best armor and intelligence at the max, and Zable Fahr
still kills you all with Hell Cross, notify me.
-I'm planning to add a HCCC (Half Class Change Challenge) where one or two of
your characters class change. If you find a NCCC is too hard for you, go for
one of those.

                          Single Class Change Challenge, or SCCC

1. NO characters may get a second class change. NO MATTER WHAT. Otherwise, it's
not a SCCC.
2. You DO have all the team members alive for this, in case you're wondering.
3. Weapon and Armor seeds are perfectly legal.

                          No Class Change Challenge, or NCCC

1. No class changing. Period. Simple enough.
2. If you get class change items for a second class change, you can use them
(Not for the class change, for the spell).

 As you can see, there are very few rules. Moving on...
=======================================================================
3.Characters

 Here are all the classes and my opinions for every character. Here they are!
--------
-Angela-
--------
Pros-*Spells.
     *High spirit, so if you don't have Carlie, she can throw Poto Oils.
Cons-*Weak, bad against normal enemies.

NCCC opinion-One of THE most useful characters. Why? Because she learns the 1st
level spells before her 1st class change! Multitarget too! The problem is,
she's awful against normal enemies, which will actually seem hard.
SCCC opinion-Still a great character, although when everyone can class change,
she's a little less useful, although she's still really good. It really depends
on your team.

*Magician*
Max. Stats
Str.-8
Agi.-8
Vit.-8
Int.-12
Spi.-11
Luc.-10

Tech- Double Attack.

Comments-She learns spells. What else can I say? Okay, so her strength,
agility, and vitality are atrocious, and her tech's pretty useless. She's
really just a boss whomper for a NCCC.

Spells-
*Holy Ball-2MP
 The first and most worthless spell. Only use it on dark-based enemies.
Although the other spells are all the same strength, Holy Ball is weaker than
them.
*Gem Missile-2MP
 The earth spell is just a spell.
*Air Blast-2MP
 The wind spell is just another spell.
*Evil Gate-2MP
 The dark spell is just awesome. I don't know why I think that. It looks cool.
*Ice Smash-2MP
 The ice spell is pretty cool.
*Fireball-2MP
 This spell always works best for me. I don't know why. It's just my favorite.
(Note-* means multitarget, or MT)

*Sorceress(Light)*
Max. Stats
Str.-14
Agi.-14
Vit.-14
Int.-17
Spi.-17
Luc.-14

Tech-Pink Typhoon

Comments- A great class. All the 2nd level spells except for Dark Force. Just
devastating. Better attack, agility, and spirit than the Delvar. Love this
class...

Spells-
Saint Beam-5MP
 Unlike Holy Ball, it's as good as all the other spells. Also unlike Holy Ball,
it costs one more than all the other spells.
Earthquake-4MP
 This is a useful spell. It's the one I normally use on non-elemental bosses.
Thunderbolt-4MP
 Not much to say.
Mega Splash-4MP
 Still not much to say.
Explosion-4MP
 Maybe I should stop commenting on Angela's spells.

*Delvar(Dark)*
Max. Stats
Str.-13
Agi.-13
Vit.-14
Int.-18
Spi.-16
Luc.-14

Tech-Star Attack

Comments- A pretty useless class. She has better intelligence than the
Sorceress, but that's useless, because the Delvar has worse spells. Stay away
from this class.

Spells-
Dark Force-4MP (Correct me if I'm wrong...)

--------
-Carlie-
--------
Pros-*Healing
     *Sabers
     *Summons
Cons-*Weak, bad against normal enemies.

NCCC opinion- Great character. The only with healing.
SCCC opinion-MT healing? Sabers? Or summons? WHOOPIE! I've always loved
Carlie's first classes. They're just great! Especially the Priestess. Sabers
and healing. Duran packed into one, with really bad attack power.

*Cleric*
Max. Stats
Str.-8
Agi.-8

Luc.-11

Tech-Bonkle

Comment- Wow. Great class. Healing before the first class change. A definate
fav for a NCCC. Her stats look a lot like Angela's, but I think Carlie has
better weapons and armor.

Spells-
Heal Light-3MP
 THE most useful spell in the game. If you could only have one spell, and you
aren't stupid, this probably would be it.
Tinkle Rain-2MP
 This spell's okay, it fixes you status(poison,silence,ectc.), but I can't
really find much of a use for it, except on Heath. I only use spells on bosses,
or Heal Light when I'm dying. None of the bosses do much to your status anyhow.

*Priestess(Light)*
Max. Stats
Str.-13
Agi.-14
Vit.-14
Int.-16
Spi.-18
Luc.-16

Tech-Jump

Comment-Possibly my favorite first class, along with the Sorceress and the
Ninja. Sabers are useful, as is Heal Light MT. Holy Ball isn't that good, but
if you don't have Angela, It's helpful. Carlie gets all of those! Yay! As I
said above, Carlie's light side is all of Duran's classes packed into one with
really bad attack power.

Spells-
Holy Ball-2MP (See Angela for more info)
All the sabers Carlie learns (Fire, Ice, Thunder, Diamond)-4MP
 If you use these on a God-Beast/Boss with a weakness, you'll do almost twice
as much damage as normal. They're so awesome.

*Enchantress(Dark)*
Max. Stats
Str.-13
Agi.-14
Vit.-13
Int.-17

Tech-Dash

Comment-A little more well rounded than the Priestess, but still physically
weak. She has two summons, which are pretty weak. I don't recommend this class
to anyone.

Spells-
Unicorn Head-1MP
 A weak summon. Like a summon form of Holy Ball.
Machine Golems-2MP
 Just like above, but a little stronger.

-------
-Duran-
-------
Pros-*Good strength, agility, and vitality.
     *Sabers.
     *Healing.
     *Shields.
Cons-*No attack magic.
     *Low intelligence.

NCCC opinion- He's a good character, but I would prefer someone like Hawk or
Kevin over him in his first class.
SCCC opinion- Sabers and healing are useful, if you don't have Carlie. He and
Carlie's Light classes are very similar. It's your choice: Better spells or
attack? I also prefer using Kevin as a healer, since Duran sacrifices sabers
for healing and Kevin sacrifices a little attack power.

*Fighter*
Max. Stats

Tech-Cross Slash.

Comment-A nice fighting class. Has a decent tech, and contrary to popular
belief, has the same recovery time as any other character.

Spells-None

*Knight(Light)*
Max. Stats
Str.-17
Agi.-15
Vit.-17
Int.-13
Spi.-14
Luc.-14

Tech-Three-Step Cut.

Comment-The Knight learns Heal Light, a useful spell if you don't have Kevin or
Carlie. Shields can be very useful, seeing they raise your evade, so you can
raise other stats besides agility and not worry if it's falling behind. Weaker
and slower than the Gladiator. Slower doesn't matter because you've got a
shield.

Spells-
Heal Light-
See Carlie.

*Gladiator(Dark)*
Max. Stats
Str.-18
Agi.-16
Vit.-17
Int.-14
Spi.-13
Luc.-13

Tech-Whirlwind Sword-FST.

Comment-More of a fighting character than the Knight. A FST (full screen tech)
can be REALLY useful when fighting multiple enemies. I love having sabers on
the God-Beasts. They raise your damage by a lot. I prefer this class to the
Knight unless you don't have a healer.

Spells-
Flame Saber-4MP
Put fire attribute on your weapon.
Ice Saber-4MP
Put ice attribute on your weapon.
Diamond Saber-4MP
Put earth attribute on your weapon.
Thunder Saber-4MP
Put wind attribute on your weapon.

-------
-Kevin-
-------
Pros-*Turns into a werewolf at night and gains attack power.
     *Healing.
     *Good attack, agility, and vitality.
Cons-*Very few spells.

NCCC opinion-One of the better characters because of his attack power.
SCCC opinion-A great character. A strong healer, if used right. A better healer
than Duran, too.

Grappler

Tech-Ashura Dream Fist.

Comment-A very useful fighter, the best without a class change. An excellent
default tech, along with Hawk's Back Slash.

Monk(Light)

Tech-Whirlwind Kick-FST, Tornado Throw.

Pros-*Healing.
     *Pressure Point.
     *Better spirit and luck than the Bashkar.
Cons-*Worse strength and intelligence than the Bashkar.

Comment- The better of Kevin's first classes. Heal Light for if you don't have
a healer, Pressure Point as a strength stat-up for Kevin to make up for the
lost strength, and a FST.

Spells-
Heal Light-
See Carlie
Pressure Point-
Raises attack power by around 1/3. Kevin only.

Bashkar(Dark)
Max. Stats
Str.-16
Agi.-15

Tech-Water Moon Slice, Bastard Slam.

Pros-*Better strength and intelligence than the Monk.
Cons-*No spells.
     *No FST.
     *Worse spirit and luck than the Monk.

Comment- I really don't like this class. No FST. Sure, he has better strength,
but Monk has Pressure Point to make up for it. The worse spirit doesn't matter,
he doesn't use it.
That's all for now.
=======================================================================
4.Party Suggestions

 Here's some party suggestions and uses for them for both challenges. The
ratings are for SCCC.

1.Angela-Carlie-Duran

 NCCC-A good team. Angela can cast spells, Carlie can heal, and Duran can
fight. Although, really, the recommended team for a NCCC is Angela, Carlie, and
Kevin.
 SCCC-A nice team. Angela should be a Sorceress to blast the enemies, Duran
should be a Gladiator to cast sabers, and Carlie should be an Enchantress
because you already have someone with sabers. This team is really for bosses,
though, because you just don't have enough attack power.
Atk.Mag-5/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-4/5
Fighting-1/5

2.Angela-Carlie-Hawk

 NCCC-A good team. Really, same as above.
 SCCC-A great team. Angela should be a Sorceress, as always. Carlie should be a
Priestess to cast sabers, and Hawk should be a Ninja to use jutsus (stat downs
while doing damage are always good). A really great team, apart from the lame
attack power.
Atk.Mag-5/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-4/5
Fighting-1.5/5, 2.5/5 stats down.

3.Angela-Carlie-Kevin

 NCCC-Here's what we've been waiting for. Magic, healing, and the best attack
power of all the characters. This is THE team for a NCCC.
 SCCC-Also a great team. You should know what Angela should be. Carlie should
yet again be a Priestess (I prefer sabers over summons). Kevin can be whatever,
because you already have a healer, although I think Pressure Point's pretty
useful, so I recommend going light.
Atk.Mag-5/5
Sup.Mag-4/5
Healing-5/5
Fighting-2/5 at day, 2.5/5 at night.

4.Angela-Carlie-Lise

 NCCC-This is the same as Angela-Carlie-Duran.
 SCCC-A good team. You should know what Angie and Carlie should be by now. Lise
should be a Valkryie for stats up and better attack power than the Rune Maiden,
unless the Rune Maiden's weapon is stronger than the Valkryie's. It really
doesn't matter for her.
Atk.Mag-5/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-4/5
Fighting-1/5, 2/5 stats up/down.

5.Angela-Duran-Kevin

 NCCC-A good team. You've got magic and two fighters. Personally, I prefer Lise
to Duran, but... *shrugs*. There's no healing in this team, but it's the same
all the way down to 10.
 SCCC-A pretty good team. Angela should ALWAYS be a Sorceress, Kevin should be
a Monk, and Duran should be a Gladiator to do Sabers. Plus, Gladiator has a
FST.
Atk.Mag-5/5
Sup.Mag-2/5
Healing-3/5
Fighting-4/5, 5/5 at night.

6.Angela-Duran-Lise

 NCCC-It's okay, but not the best. There are better fighters than Duran and
Lise in their defaults.
 SCCC-A decent team. You don't have Carlie or Kevin, so you have to sacrifice
Duran's sabers for a healer. That's really annoying, though, because the Knight
doesn't have a FST. For Lise, it really doesn't matter, because stat downs and
stat ups are basically the same thing. The Valkryie has better strength,
though.
Atk.Mag-5/5
Sup.Mag-3/5
Healing-3/5
Fighting-3/5, 4/5 stats up/down.

7.Angela-Duran-Hawk

 NCCC-I like this team. I think Hawk's a better fighter than Duran and Lise in
their defaults. Then, of course, you've got the magic.
 SCCC-Just like the one above, but Hawk as a Ninja is better than Lise in any
of her first classes magicwise. Duran is now a better fighter than Hawk. YAY!
Atk.Mag-5/5
Sup.Mag-3/5
Healing-3/5
Fighting-3/5, 4/5 stats down.

8.Angela-Kevin-Lise

 NCCC-Good team. Magic, the best fighter, and a good fighter.
 SCCC-You've got someone meant to be a healer in this team aka Kevin. He should
be a Monk, if you don't know what Angie should be, you haven't been reading
these, and Lise should be whatever, although Valkryie is better, I think.
Atk.Mag-5/5
Sup.Mag-3/5
Healing-3/5
Fighting-4/5, 5/5 stats down/up or at night.

9.Angela-Kevin-Hawk

 NCCC-Another great team. The two best fighters and a magic user.
 SCCC-A healer, a stat person, and a magician. What could be better? Kevin as a
Monk, you know Angela, and Hawk should be a Ninja.
Atk.Mag-5/5
Sup.Mag-3/5
Healing-3/5
Fighting-4/5, 5/5 stats down/up or at night.

10.Angela-Hawk-Lise

 NCCC-A magic user and two good fighters.. A nice team.
 SCCC-A stat down and stat up person. Double the damage. Heh heh. Lise as a
Valkryie, Hawk as a Ninja, and Angela as a Sorceress(Omigosh! I actually said
it!) is a devastating team. Except for one thing. THERE'S NO HEALER!!! OH NO!!!
FREAK OUT!!!! Okay, so it's not THAT bad.
Atk.Mag-4/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-5/5
Fighting-3/5, 5/5 stats down+up.

11.Carlie-Duran-Hawk
 NCCC-A healer and two good fighters.
 SCCC-Carlie as a Enchantress, Duran as a Gladiator, and Hawk as a Ninja. Stats
down, sabers, and summons. A great team, also seeing that the summons and
jutsus almost make up for Angela's absence.
Atk.Mag-4/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-4/5
Fighting-2.5/5, 3.5/5 stats down.

12.Carlie-Duran-Kevin
 NCCC-A healer, the best fighter, and a good fighter. A good team, although
lacking attack magic.
 SCCC-Carlie as a Enchantress, Duran as a Gladiator, and Kevin as whatever. 
Sabers and summons. For Kevin, his class doesn't matter. More attack power or a
FST. It's up to you.
Atk.Mag-2/5
Sup.Mag-4/5
Healing-4/5
Fighting-3/5, 4/5 at night.

13.Carlie-Duran-Lise
 NCCC-A healer and two good fighters.
 SCCC-Carlie as a Enchantress, Duran as a Gladiator, and Lise as a...a...uh...
makes no dif. Stats down/up, sabers, and summons. A great team.
Atk.Mag-2/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-4/5
Fighting-3/5, 4/5 stats down/up.

14.Carlie-Hawk-Kevin
 NCCC-A healer and the two better fighters.
 SCCC-Carlie as a Priestess, Hawk as a Ninja, and Kevin as whatever. Carlie can
saber, Hawk can stat down, and Kevin can beat people up.
Atk.Mag-3/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-5/5
Fighting-3/5, 4/5 stats down.

15.Carlie-Hawk-Lise
 NCCC-Healer and good fighters.
 SCCC-Carlie as a Priestess, Hawk as a Ninja, and Lise as a Valkryie. Stat
down+ups and sabers. The ultimate in support magic.
Atk.Mag-3/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-4/5
Fighting-3/5, 4/5 stats down+up.

16.Carlie-Kevin-Lise
 NCCC-A healer, the best fighter, and a good fighter.
 SCCC-Carlie as a Priestess, Kevin as whatever, and Lise as whatever. Carlie
can saber, Lise can stat down/up, and Kevin can kick butt.
Atk.Mag-2/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-5/5
Fighting-3/5, 4/5 stats down/up.

17.Hawk-Duran-Kevin

 NCCC-An all fighting team with the three best fighters.
 SCCC-Hawk as a Ninja, Duran as a Gladiator, and Kevin as a Monk. You've got
stats down, sabers, and ST Heal Light.
Atk.Mag-2/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-3/5
Fighting-5/5

18.Hawk-Duran-Lise
 NCCC-The hardest NCCC team. The three worst fighters who are actually meant to
be fighters, and no magic.
 SCCC-Hawk as a Ninja, Lise as a Valkryie, and Duran as a Knight. Stats down
and up, as well as ST healing.
Atk.Mag-2/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-3/5
Fighting-4/5, 5/5 stats down/up.

19.Hawk-Kevin-Lise

 NCCC-Another all fighting team with a slightly less power.
 SCCC-Hawk as a Ninja, Lise as a Valkryie, and Kevin as a Monk. Very much like
the team above with better attack power.
Atk.Mag-2/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-3/5
Fighting-4/5, 5/5 stats down/up.

20.Kevin-Duran-Lise

 NCCC-A great fighter, and two good ones. No magic.
 SCCC-Kevin as a Monk, Duran as a Gladiator, and Lise as anything. Kevin will
heal, Duran will use sabers, and Lise will stat down/up.
Atk.Mag-1/5
Sup.Mag-5/5
Healing-3/5
Fighting-4/5, 5/5 stats down/up.

=======================================================================
5.Tips

NCCC-
1.Train. Especially once you get past the point where you normally get your
first class change.
2.Get lots of items. There are lots of stat up items. Those would be very
useful on bosses. There are also elemental statues, elemental coins, and claws.
The statues do something of the element, the coins do offensive spells, and the
claws cast sabers. I think there's also some others that I can't think of right
now.
3.I don't know if there even is special weapons and armor for the first class,
and if there is, get them. The better weapons and armor you have, the longer
you'll survive.
4.Max out important stats first. Don't go worrying if your luck is falling
behind. You'll have a lot of levels to catch it up.

SCCC-
For those who 2nd class change really early:
1.As with a NCCC, train. A ton. The God-Beasts still aren't hard unless you're
really used to a second class change really early.
2.Use ??? seeds to your advantage. You can plant them and use the items, just
not for a class change.

HCCC-
1.If you're doing a one character gets a class change, have the two that don't
get a class change be Angela and Carlie. That way you get healing and magic,
even while they don't class change. The downside to that is that on harder
bosses, they'll die too easily.

SCCC tips are coming soon!

Thanks to-
GameFAQs.com for posting my FAQ
The writers of the character FAQs at GameFAQs. Their awesome FAQs kept me
going. Especially Tw1light for writing the Single Character Challenge FAQ,
which inspired me.
And although I hate to admit it...
Some idiot somewhere or another who thought they were the best FAQ writer ever.
I've hated them ever since and I wanted to write FAQs to show them that they're
a loser.
