The Sims Medieval Hero List

Information on Heroes' Professions and Class Comparison

This is a list of all Hero jobs in The Sims Medieval. The list links to all hero strategy guides and provides a quick summary of what the class can do. You'll also see how much their career's daily salary is at levels 1-10. This pay range is helpful as a comparison tool, and may direct you toward creating your next hero.

Patch 1.3.13 - Heroes can Level past 10
The Hero leveling system in Medieval has seen a hefty update. Now, when pursuing Free Time Quests at the end of an Ambition, Heroes can continue to gain experience and reach level 10. Also, when playing a Hero that is already maxed out, the system will work much like Careers in The Sims 3. They will gain bonus levels, which will raise their daily income (the money they make when not being played). This will contribute loads to Kingdom wealth. Additionally, they'll get better success rates on any Hero interactions that are focus-driven. So your Wizard will fail less often at spellcasting, Spies will pickpocket successfully, Priests will succeed in conversions, etc. etc.
