Every week Time, the Healer brings An Earnest of Payment and rewards according to the Profession. Each Profession's weekly reward is listed at Profession Payments.

To select a new profession, you'll first need to quit your current one (if you have any), and you can do so via Choose a new Profession under Write Letters in you lodgings.

For Tier 1 professions you then have to wait for the desired Faction Cards to show up.

Advanced Professions and Lab / Parabola ContentEdit

A significant amount of late-game content has been introduced to Fallen London in Spring 2020, mostly concentrated around two particular areas: the Parabola (and the Parabolan Base-Camp) and the Laboratory. Players with Tier 3 Professions have specific advantages, depending on the Profession, in pursuing particular activities in these places.


At the moment the roles Correspondent, the Glassman and the Monster-Hunter seem to be more advantageous when exploring the new content. Other professions have less useful or quite situational benefits.
