The first level of each major class can be changed to another large class, and the second level can only be upgraded to the next level of the major class.
Each battle is converted to the corresponding upgrade points based on the experience gained by the player, and consumes one point for each level.
After the players upgrade the “training” skills, they can also get upgrade points every day. Each level of “training” gets one points.
