Mercedes is the third Hero class that was introduced to Maplestory within the second addition of the Legend Update. Just like Aran and Evan's and his dragon Mir's predecessor, Afrien with his rider Freed, Mercedes was one of the heroes that fought against the Black Mage, along with Aran, Afrien with his rider Freed, and 2 others until she was frozen for decades to come. Mercedes is derived from the elf race, residing in the town of Elluel, which also was affected by the powers of the Black Mage. Mercedes' main weapon of choices are Dual Bowguns, automatic portable crossbows that fires powerful Magic Arrows.
The storyline starts off with Mercedes waking up to see her fallen friend Afrien along with Freud. Afrien notifies her that his master had sacfriced his own life in protecting the Onyx Dragon from the Black Magician's curse. He also explained that he has also left behind an egg (which contains Mir) to be opened by a successor (Evan). Afrien sends Mercedes back to Elluel to protect her people from the Black Mage, in which she performs emergency precautions to prevent the curse from spreading. Her actions worked to no avail as the townspeople were eventually frozen and eventually, her as well. only to see that she was too late to help as the curse froze everyone in the town.
A century has passed and the frozen heroine was reanimated from her slumber, but had left her weaker as a result. Now Mercedes must restore and protect her hometown and resume her duty to protect Maple World.
Mercedes, along with the Demon Slayer are the first classes in Maplestory to start at level 10 instead of 1. Mercedes have several traits that sets her apart from the other Bowmen. Other than having a unique weapon of their own, Mercedes is not only specialized in ranged attacks, but in melee also, having several attacks that can damage the enemies up close.
She does not use any arrows at all, instead she uses her own type of arrows known as Magic Arrows. Magic Arrows are given to players at every job advancement and they take up a slot that replaces the Shield slot. Magic Arrows do no have any stats or all and cannot use scrolls or gain potential, except the level 120 arrow.
Like the Cannoneer, Mercedes possesses a link skill that allows the user to gain a 10% exp bonus. This skill can be shared to anyone of your characters once your Mercedes character is level 70 or over.
