The Legendary Hero

Summary And Story

During the age when the Black Mage ruled Maple World, five heroes protected its citizens from his villainy. They fought the Black Mage with their unique powers, but it was impossible to protect the world and the people. Rather than see their people get hurt, the heroes sent them away to the safety of Victoria Island. Then, they began their final battle with the Mage. When the dust finally cleared, the heroes had disappeared, leading everyone to believe they had died. Now, centuries after, Aran, one of the five heroes who fought the Black Mage, rises again!

"I must go. The Black Magician must be stopped!"

Pros

  • Arans are strongest non-ranged class in game
  • Combo Barrier reduces enemy damage and Combo Drain heals you giving good survivability
  • Smart Knockback affects your party and Knockbacking on boss monsters make them attack less
  • Faster attack speeds then other polearm users because of Polearm Booster (+3 attack speed on Polearm)
  • Have the farthest reaching melee moves in game
  • Extremely good mobbing abilities straight from the start
  • Arans can knockback almost every monster in game
  • Arans are the greatest at mobbing Party Quests such as Kerning City Subway Pq and Nett's Pyramid Pq boat loads of experience because you have moves Double Swing And Triple Swing

Cons

  • Requires memorization of certain key sequences and near-constant pushing of the attack button
  • Many quests are required to be completed for skills on all job advancements
  • Have accuracy problems like other warrior-type classes
  • Lower HP than normal warrior-type classes(this REALLY bugs me! when you see a hero with 16000 hp, you only have like 3500. don't you feel sad?)
  • Keeping your combo up can be a hassle
  • Very high MP usage

Skills

The Aran are a unique class, taking inspiration from most of the Warrior classes and a couple others as well. The Aran use a few ice-based attacks and also have a considerable amount of story behind them to support there skill choices.
Bolded Skill Level is the mastery level.
Bolded Skill in SP build means the skill should now be maxed.

AP Build

By the time you're 50 you should have at least 220 STR and 60 DEX including the equips that give you stats. After getting your DEX to 70, focus ONLY on STR.

From level 1 to level 200...... The Aran story guide!!!!!!!

You woke up from an injury...... You don't know where to go......

Get out, talk to Athena Pierce. Start the quest Find the Missing Kid. Go left, and keep going, you will go through a portal. Your polearm is called the Maha Polearm. It's the best one ever, have about 1500 w.attack. Just keep going until you find a dead end, and do all the things you need to do. Talk to Athena Pierce again, and you are now level 1.


Legend: Level 1 to Level 10

Talk to Lilin, and you will be going to the LEFT. Whenever you see a lightbulb on top of someone's head with a speech bubble thingy, it is a quest that you need to do. The first 3 quests are pretty easy, then comes to the point where the "quiz" is. I don't know what the order is, but the answer should be "Black Mage", "Sealed away the black mage", and "Defeat the Black Mage and save the world". After this, you will be given 4 different quests asking you to kill 10 Murupa, 15 Murupia, 20 Murumuru, and 5 Murukun.

Upon finishing all these quests you should now be level 10, job advance into an Aran!

Three Snails SP Build
Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination

Level 1 - You do not get a point on this level.

Level 2 - +1 Recovery (1)

Level 3 - +1 Recovery (2)

Level 4 - +1 Recovery (MAX)

Level 5 - +1 Three Snails (1)

Level 6 - +1 Three Snails (2)

Level 7 - +1 Three Snails (MAX)

Level 8 - You do not get a point on this level.

Level 9 - You do not get a point on this level.

Level 10 - You do not get a point on this level.

End Result

Three Snails-MAXED
Agile Body-0
Recovery-MAXED

What's the point in maxing Three Snails? Three Snails gives a ranged attack which Aran lack until the 2nd Job Advancement, it can come in handy for mobbing.
Although when using a pole arm, you cannot throw shells, because it's a two handedd weapon. So why no Agile Body? Combat Step has the ability to cover entire maps in seconds when used on a ledge (still not proven to be a glitch or not), and provides a much lower but still decent boost when not on ledges.
True, but combat step uses a lot of useful mp, when agile body can be much more useful.

Level 9 - You do not get a point on this level.

Level 10 - You do not get a point on this level.

End Result

Three Snails-0
Agile Body-MAXED
Recovery-MAXED

What's the point in maxing Agile Body? Agile Body gives a pretty decent boost on speed no matter the type of terrain, Combat Step does have the ability to cover maps but it loses on comparison to Agile Body on flat land.
So why no Three Snails? It is a weak attack doing only 40 damage when maxed. It has a ranged attack which can be handy, but Aran also have the longest reach out of all the Melee Classes in game.

End Result

Three Snails-MAXED
Agile Body-MAXED
Recovery-0

What's the point in maxing Agile Body? Agile Body gives a pretty decent boost on speed no matter the type of terrain, Combat Step does have the ability to cover maps but it loses on comparison to Agile Body on flat land.
And what about Three Snails? Three Snails gives a ranged attack which Aran lack until the 2nd Job Advancement, it can come in handy for mobbing.
So why no Recovery? It is quite useful in the first couple levels in the life of an Aran, but later it is next to useless seeing as you will have a high amount of HP and will be using potions to recover.


Aran (1st Job Advancement)

Aran- Level 10 to Level 22(Polearm Booster)

You will get the following skills: Double Swing, and Combat Step.

Next quests are the ones asking you to kill harder monsters. They are: 30 of Slime, Orange Mushroom, and Pig. You should be level 13 when finishing these. Combo Ability will be awarded to you upon finishing the 3rd one.

Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination
Double Swing: Press the attack key twice to attack up to 12 surrounding monsters two times.
  • Level 1: MP -2, 102% Damage
  • Level 10: MP -3, 120% Damage
  • Level 20: MP -5, 140% Damage
Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination

Combat Step SP Build
Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination

Somewhat now a good idea, but if you follow the "No Body Pressure SP Build" in 2nd Job, you can eventually max everything.

Level 10 - +1 Double Swing (1)

Level 11 - +3 Double Swing (4)

Level 12 - +3 Double Swing (7)

Level 13 - +3 Double Swing (10)

Level 14 - +2 Double Swing (12); +1 Combo Ability (1)

Level 15 - +2 Double Swing (14); +1 Combo Ability (2)

Level 16 - +2 Double Swing (16); +1 Combo Ability (3)

Level 17 - +2 Double Swing (18); +1 Combo Ability (4)

Level 18 - +2 Double Swing (MAXED); +1 Combo Ability (5)

Level 19 - +1 Combat Step (1); +2 Combo Ability (7)

Level 20 - +1 Combat Step (2); +2 Combo Ability (9)

Level 21 - +2 Combat Step (4); +1 Combo Ability (MAXED)

Level 22 - +2 Combat Step (6); +1 Polearm Booster (1)

Level 23 - +3 Combat Step (9)

Level 24 - +3 Combat Step (12)

Level 25 - +3 Combat Step (MAXED)

Level 26 - +3 Polearm Booster (4)

Level 27 - +3 Polearm Booster (7)

Level 28 - +3 Polearm Booster (10)

Level 29 - +3 Polearm Booster (13)

Level 30 - +3 Polearm Booster (16)

End Result

Double Swing-MAXED
Combo Ability-MAXED
Polearm Booster-16
Combat Step-MAXED

Why only 16 on Polearm Booster? Polearm Booster grants +3 attack speed at level 15 which is the same as it would be at level 20, the only difference is that it would last longer and cost less MP and HP at level 20. Why max Combo Ability if it always gives Weapon Attack +1, and Weapon/Magic Defense +5? It continues to stack that amount until maxed when it can stack up to 10 times (10 Weapon Attack and 50 Weapon/Magic Defense with 100 combo count or more).

Level 29 - +3 Combat Step (8)

Level 30 - +3 Combat Step (11)

End Result

Why only 11 on Combat Step? Combat Step's ability (or glitch) to go long distances when used on a ledge is available even when it has 1 skill point.
Why max Combo Ability if it always gives Weapon Attack +1, and Weapon/Magic Defense +5? It continues to stack that amount until maxed when it can stack up to 10 times (10 Weapon Attack and 50 Weapon/Magic Defense with 100 combo count or more).

Level 69 - +3 Body Pressure (4)

Level 70 - +3 Body Pressure (7)

End Result

Triple Swing-MAXED
Polearm Mastery-MAXED
Body Pressure-7
Combo Drain-MAXED
Combo Smash-MAXED
Final Charge-MAXED

Why only 7 on Body Pressure? Though Body Pressure can help push off close enemies it is a skill that requires you to take damage to work, even when mastered it only works 40% of the time and sadly does only normal attack damage (which is 100%).
Why does it say +3 Combo Ability or +3 Polearm Booster or +3 Combat Step at levels 67 and 68? All the 1st Job Advancement SP builds have 1 skill that is 4 skill points away from being maxed, since Body Pressure does not need to be maxed it can be left at 7 and put into the skill that was not maxed in the 1st Job Advancement.
Why do I save SP at level 44 and 50 to 53? Polearm Mastery, Combo Drain, Combo Smash, and Final Charge are not given to you upon reaching 2nd job advancement, Polearm Mastery unlocks at level 31, Combo Drain at 37, Combo Smash at 45, and Final Charge at 54.

  • A note from MVPJeffie: Body Pressure just body checks monsters when attacking. When you go to the point when you can only put SP on Body Pressure, first max ALL 1st job skills. Then, with the remaining 2nd job SP, put it on Body Pressure.

Level 70 - +3 Final Charge (17)

End Result

Triple Swing-MAXED
Polearm Mastery-MAXED
Body Pressure-MAXED
Combo Drain-MAXED
Combo Smash-MAXED
Final Charge-17

Why only 17 on Final Charge? Final Charge when mastered uses 20 MP and only does 90% damage. The only point in putting skills points into is because when you use Triple Swing you move closer to the target, Final Charge pushes the monster(s) back. This prevents the taking of damage and allows better positioning.
Why does it say +3 Combo Ability or +3 Polearm Booster or +3 Combat Step at levels 64-65? All the 1st Job Advancement SP builds have 1 skill that is 4 skill points away from being maxed, since Final Charge does not need to be maxed it can be left at 17 and put into the skill that was not maxed in the 1st Job Advancement.
Why do I need to max out Combo Smash before I max out Combo Drain? Combo Smash when maxed does an amazing 700% hit to 10 monsters, this can speed up training by a huge amount. Combo Drain is essentially a money saving ability in how it can save you a few HP potions.

This is the NORMAL way to add the SP, if you still want to fight Balrog on 3rd job, do NOT put any SP on Full Swing until level 114.

This part is done entirely by MVPJeffie on June 23, 2010.

Aran (4th Job Advancement)

MVPJeffie's note - A SP build will not be added for this because all of the skills requires skill book and mastery books(see below, after the skills). If you can not get any skill books, you can still add SP until level 133. In this case, add Overswing, High Mastery, and finally Freeze Standing all to level 10, and don't forget to add Maple Warrior too.

dragonice1's Quote- Will Aran be Left Behind?

I'm fearing for the future of arans. The big bang is coming, and I'm afraid arans could be left behind.

According the the damage charts, arans seem to be near the bottom of the list, just above mages. That's with 100 combos and combo critical. I'm fearing this, because the way I see it, every class has it's advantage and disadvantages in 4 main areas. Here's how arans stack up, as I'm seeing it.

Bossing 3/10. Decent at best. Training 5/10. Decent enough, but many classes move faster and kill faster then we ever could. Party skills 2/10. Not many people even know what it does, and they don't really even care about 20% defense. Survivability 4~6/10 With few survival skills, our survivability will be dependent on how much HP we get after the big bang.

Now let's look at wild hunters.

Bossing 10/10 Apparently the top of the charts, or maybe #2 Training 10/10, they get a skill like taunt, which gives +40% exp from the monsters it hits. Best possible training, though if it doesn't exist, then maybe the rate can be dropped to 3/10 or 4/10 Party skills 10/10, they get sharp eyes. Everyone wants sharp eyes. It's the only skill that increases max critical damage. Survability 7/10, they get beast's anger, which is like a 70% HB. I'm not sure, but maybe during it's cooldown, they have slightly low HP?

Althought all of this seems a bit scary, I have to say that we don't know the full truth, we'll need to get the big bang to see where our future lies.
