Jobs are essentially classes that offer unique skills and attributes during combat. Some excel at close-range combat and dealing fire damage, while others are used to sling spells from a distance. Only one Job (Fighter) will be available to you at the start of the game, although you’ll quickly unlock more as you play through the main story. You’ll also gain the ability to swap between them in the middle of combat to gain the upper hand.

How to use Jobs in Harvestella

Once you’ve unlocked a Job, you’ll need to assign it to your character before you can use it. This can be done by pausing the game and heading to the Party menu. From here, simply select your character, then highlight one of the three Job slots at the bottom of the screen. You’ll then have the option to assign a Job to one of these slots.

With your Jobs equipped, you’ll now have access to them while in combat. Keep in mind that both your Job Skills and the Jobs themselves carry cooldowns. For example, if you are playing as a Mage and switch to Fighter, the Mage Job will be locked for a few seconds, preventing you from using it. There’s also a cooldown for each skill. This makes it crucial to plan out your strategy ahead of time, as there’s nothing worse than having to wait for a cooldown timer before switching back to a Job you need or a skill you’d like to use.

Jobs can also be upgraded to make them more effective. As you slay enemies, you’ll accrue Job Points (JP). These are exchanged for new skills and passive abilities in the Job menu. Instead of having one large pool of JP, each individual Job has its own pool of JP. In other words, the more you use a specific Job, the faster you can level it up.

How to buy a house in Starfield
Spaceship on planet in Starfield.

Even though you will be spending the majority of your time in Starfield sitting in your ship or exploring the various planets across the universe, you won't have a true place to call your own unless you buy a house. Unlike your ship or the room you're given in Constellation, getting your own home lets you decorate, rest, and really just have a place to make your own. Getting a house isn't mandatory, nor is it even that easy to do. You'll need more than just a pocket full of Credits, so here are the ways you can get yourself a house in Starfield.
Ways to get a house

There are a couple of ways to get a house in Starfield, with the easiest to simply take the Dream Home trait when building your character. This will automatically give you a home after a quick quest, but it isn't free. You will need to pay off a huge 125,000 Credit mortgage before it's officially yours.

How to build an outpost in Starfield
Spaceship on planet in Starfield.

As advertised, Starfield is filled with over 1,000 planets to freely land on, explore, and plunder for resources. While you could simply go down and scan the surface for resources to mine manually, if you want to be an efficient miner, then you will want to set up an outpost to automate the process for you. Somewhat like the building system introduced in Fallout 4, outposts have a lot of systems going on. Getting started isn't too tough, but the amount of options and things you need to balance can get complicated if you plan on making this a lucrative venture for resources and Credits. The tutorial can get you started, but we'll get you the rest of the way there to managing a successful outpost in Starfield.
Find a vein
Your outpost isn't going to do much if you set it up in an area with no resources, so plotting out the best location to build is key. When you arrive at a planet of choice, you are given the option to scan it. This will reveal the main resources that planet has, plus change the view to show how those resources are distributed. Once you've found a planet with the resource(s) you're looking for, rotate the planet until you find a big concentration of it to land on.

But don't just drop your outpost beacon right where you land! Just because you set your ship to land on what looks like a mother lode of resources doesn't mean the specific spot you touch down will be right. Whip out your scanner and check the area, specifically for underground resources. When you find an area with a good amount of one or more resource veins, then its time to start building.

How long is Starfield?

Bethesda Game Studio titles are notorious for being some of the most expansive and long-lasting RPGs of their type. Starfield is the first new IP from the studio in over a decade, and yet it follows the same basic formula of the company's staple series of having just one main quest, but hundreds of sidequests, activities, and places to explore. The difference here is you're not locked to a single landmass like in an Elder Scrolls game, but have an entire universe to explore. Before you get in the pilot seat and blast off to adventure, it's best make sure you have enough supplies to last the trip. Here's how long you can expect to spend in Starfield.
How long is Starfield?

There are a few ways to break down how long Starfield will take you. Let's start with the easiest measurement, which is how long the main story will take. If you were to only focus on following the critical path, you could probably get through Starfield in around 20 hours. That's a decent chunk of time, but will obviously only show you a fraction of what the game has to offer. Many people do ignore the main story in BGS games, however, we strongly recommend you see this story through before completely losing yourself to side content.
