Base Stats are 17 stat points that are distributed completely based on the Job you started with. Contrary to popular belief, changing one's job will not alter their stats, only their stat growth upon leveling up. This is because only the base stats for an Adventurer's starting class decide a player's stats. As a result of this, only the starting classes(Warrior, Magician and Thief) have base stats. An important thing to note is that 10 points in HP is the equivalent of 1 point in any other stat.
