Here’s a rundown of all the Seiken Densetsu 3 Angela Classes:
Magician – Seiken Densetsu 3 Angela Classes
Magician is Angela’s standard class option. It gets access to all the level 1 elemental spells. Magic is generally not as good as physical attacks in Trials of Mana, but it has its uses. Mainly, it can affect bosses when they’re outside of physical attack range, and it can knock down screen fulls of enemies. So, in that regard, Angela tends to pull her weight on a team.
STR 8, DEX 8, CON 8, INT 12, PIE 11, LUC 10
Holy Ball*, Gem Missile*, Air Blast*, Evil Gate*, Ice Smash*, Fireball*
Sorceress (Light) – Seiken Densetsu 3 Angela Classes
When it comes to classes for Angela in Trials of Mana, Sorceress is Angela’s first Light Side option. It learns all the level 2 elemental spells. At first, this may seem like it makes the Sorceress hands-down better than the Delvar, but that’s misleading. Since the Delvar gets higher magic power, its level 1 spells actually deal comparable damage to Sorceress’s level 2 spells at a much lower MP cost. So, it’s generally considered that Delvar is a better class, although it doesn’t offer the excitement of new spell graphics.
STR 14, DEX 14, CON 14, INT 17, PIE 17, LUC 14
Saint Beam, Earthquake, Air Blast, Mega Splash, Explode
Delvar (Dark) – Seiken Densetsu 3 Angela Classes
Delvar is Angela’s first Dark Side option. As I mentioned, it gets higher magic power than the Sorceress, so its level 1 spells are stronger, and although it doesn’t gain access to level 2 spells except for Dark Force, casting level 1 spells is more economical. Delvar is generally considered to be the better option, although the difference between the two (as with all of Angela’s classes) is marginal.
STR 13 DEX 13 CON 14 INT 18 PIE 16 LUC 13
Grand Divina (Light-Light) – Seiken Densetsu 3 Angela Classes
When it comes to classes for Angela in Trials of Mana, Grand Divina is her Light-Light option. It gains the ability to multi-target all the level 2 spells, and additionally gains the powerful multi-elemental Double Spell. Angela’s Light Side classes are typically considered to be better for AoE damage and clearing rooms of enemies, whereas her Dark Side classes are generally thought to be better for bosses. Still, the difference is fairly marginal. Angela is pretty much the same no matter what class you pick for her. Grand Devina gets an extra point of Intelligence compared to Arch Mage, which gives her the edge.
STR 17, DEX 17, CON 18, INT 21, PIE 19, LUC 16
Double Spell*, Saint Beam*, Earthquake*, Thunderstorm*, Mega Splash*, Explode*
Arch Mage (Light-Dark) – Seiken Densetsu 3 Angela Classes
Arch Mage is almost exactly the same as Grand Devina except it learns Rainbow instead of Double Spell. Rainbow is a slightly stronger spell, but it’s cast by a slightly weaker Angela. Personally I think Grand Devina is a little better because her level 2 spells hit harder. Rainbow and Double Spell do roughly the same amount of damage. Arch Mage and Grand Devina are 99% the same thing. Just pick whichever one you like based off the cosmetics (menu portrait, class name, spell graphics).
STR 16, DEX 16, CON 18, INT 20, PIE 20, LUC 17
Rainbow*, Saint Beam*, Earthquake*, Thunderstorm*, Mega Splash*, Explode*
Rune Master (Dark-Light) – Seiken Densetsu 3 Angela Classes
When it comes to classes for Angela in Trials of Mana, Rune Master is probably my personal favorite. Rune Master learns all the level 3 elemental spells, which, in addition to dealing lots of damage, also inflict status effects. Stone Cloud can one hit kill any trash monster in the game, making short work of those dangerous Nightblades. Rune Master also learns Death Spell, which does 999 damage to anything lower level than Angela. You only need to be around level 52 for this spell to work on every enemy in the game, which is not a difficult feat.
STR 15, DEX 15, CON 18, INT 21, PIE 19, LUC 16
Stun Wind, Cold Breeze, Blaze Wall, Stone Cloud, Death Spell, Dark Force*
Magus (Dark-Dark) – Seiken Densetsu 3 Angela Classes
Magus learns all the level 2 spells and has Angela’s highest INT of any class. It also learns the Ancient spell, which is a strong room clear option. All of Magus’s level 2 spells are single target, so that’s what you’ll be using for boss fights (although you’re certainly welcome to blow through all your MP with Ancient). There isn’t too much difference between Angela’s final classes, so feel free to go with this one if you like the Ancient spell.
STR 16, DEX 16, CON 18, INT 22, PIE 18, LUC 15
Ancient*, Earthquake, Thunderstorm, Mega Splash, Explode, Dark Force*
Conclusion – Seiken Densetsu 3 Angela Classes
When it comes to final classes for Angela in Seiken Densetsu 3, they’re mostly the same. However, Rune Master definitely edges out all the others. Damaging bosses is generally more important than room clear, and Rune Master is hands-down the best for boss fights between Death Spell and the elemental spells. Even for room clear, destroying a high priority monster or two via Stone Cloud is very useful. I would almost always recommend Rune Master when using Angela.
Trials of Mana has a remake coming out and if you preorder now, you’ll get the Rabite Adornment DLC, which increases XP after each fight until level 10.
