Investigation Comments

The most popular Classes were Braver, Hunter, and Ranger!
Hunter, the 2nd most popular Main Class, is also often used as a Sub-Class for Melee and Ranged types! Many players use “Iron Will” and “Auto-Mate” skills to increase their defense. 

The next most commonly used Sub-Class after Hunter was Étoile, which ranked in the top 3 in 6 out of 9 Classes! The Étoile class is unable to use Techniques, but it greatly increases players’ defense stats. The “Damage Bouncer” skill can also reduce the damage taken from Enemies, so it seems to work well for quests where the Clear Rank changes depending on how much damage is taken.

Both Classes have skills that can be used as Sub-Classes and can greatly increase defense as well as attack, which has kept them popular.

The most popular Emotes were “Wave” in the female category and “Group Gymnastics” in the male category! 

Between male and female characters, there was a large difference in the Emote usage rankings.

The most frequently used Emote in the female category was "Wave". This emote can be used in the character’s default state and many other situations, such as player communication and taking screenshots, which is why it got first place!

The first place in the male category is "Group Gymnastics"! Players found this emote interesting to use by themselves as well as together with other players, so it seems it is often used for communication between friends.

Lastly, the unique “Airplane” emote was popular with both male and female players!
