Guide for Permanent Beginners

Perma Beginners (also known as a Supernoob, can be shortened farther to Sn or Pb), is short for the term "Permanent Beginners." Permanent beginners do not make the job advancement. Instead, they spend their entire life as a Beginner. This article will explain the Perma Beginner. Before you continue, it is recommended for people to fulfill these requirements:

  • You are funded
  • You want a challenge
  • You are patient
  • You can stand people putting you down

There are two types of Perma beginners: a maple island one, and just a normal one, more will be explained later in this article. However, for Maple island Perma beginners, it is harder to train, because of the fact the strongest mushroom on Maple island is an Pig.

Pros & Cons

The Perma Beginner Beginning

Your dice roll should be similar to that of a warrior. That means Str: X Dex: X Int: 4 Luk:4/5 Your first ten levels should be similar to those of a warrior. Add 3 points to strength and two to dexterity. [However, you do have a lot of free room to do whatever. It's perfectly fine to put all your stats into LUK, or even INT, though I don't reccomend it. INT gives you mp, and you never use mp. LUK will not give you any attack. Come to think of it, you could put all stats into DEX, so that you'd have better accuracy than anyone! Although going on as a LOW dex beginner may help with the lack of mastery you have to put up with.Giving you more room for strength.] Complete Maria's quest to earn your hat and around level 10, complete Biggs' quest to get a better weapon. This is where the two "types" of Perma Beginners forms.

There Are 2 different types of Perma Beginners
There is a Islander, they stay at Maple Island.
Then there is a Snail Crusher, they only kill snails for training.

If you want, you can stay on Maple Island and train on an assortment of snails and mushrooms. Or, if you would rather go to Victoria Island, talk to Shanks around level 15 and leave. Staying on Maple Island makes it very hard to train, but around level 20, you should be able to kill Orange Mushrooms in one hit. If you can stick it out and train on those for the rest of your character's life, you will become one of the strongest characters ever on Maple Island.
Note:Part of being a supernoob is having style and being unique and different. If having a ordinary sword looks cooler than a better one, use it!

Training for Perma Beginners

Those who want to train in Victoria Island should loosely follow the training pattern of a warrior.

Extra Info

Along with the basics of raising a SuperNoob you can also choose to verge on a perfectionism route. In this you are low dex to make up for the lack of mastery beginners get.*this is suggested for funded people* Using an accuracy calculator you can scroll your sauna robe shoes and capes to just the right amount to be able to hit the monster you train on. This route can be very expensive but, all that dex you scrolled for can now go into strength when you're leveling up. Have fun!

Recomended Stats Builds

I (sumi66) would like to add a recomended stats build which spans over a 5lvlperiod and is repeated in 5lvl intervels your first 3lvls are for str and dex (str most becasue you depend on it to attack) 4+str and 1+dex. you only add dex so low because the only benefit from it is the possible chance for enemys to miss you ocassionaly and it isn't very nessecary the last 2lvls of the 5lvl span in for HP and MP because we all like health and MP is always good^^. +3HP and +2MP, BUT once your DMG is above 40 stopa adding mp. It's at a good lvl now and you wont need it much more so change the stat build to +4hp and +1str. Thanks for your time. And if this info doesn't work with you it's probally cuz i use mapleSEA and things are slightly varied between the other operating systems. Any way good bye and have a nice day^^. (if anything happend to the main section of this it's probally my fault this is my first edit)

I (SharpShadow) suggest you would ONLY add STR, DEX and HP. Why don't add MP? When you are about lvl 20, you don't need any MP anymore. Maybe a few times by doing a skill like restore or nimble feet. I suggest you should never put something in the snail skill. You won't need it anymore after lvl 15. Just put something in nimble feet and restore skill.

IMPORTANT: You should hold your DEX and STR double of your lvl. your HP should be anything else you can put in it. It should look like this.

+2DEX, +2STR and +1 HP each lvl once STR and DEX are twice your lvl.

While STR and DEX arn't twice your lvl (but higher), you should NOT put anything in it. Whenever STR just got twice your lvl you should start add 2 points each lvl. Whenever DEX is still not twice your lvl you should NOT put anything in it untill it is twice your lvl. Each point that you didn't spend in DEX or STR should be putten in HP. It should look like this (When you rolled: 4 INT, 4 LUK, 6 STR and 10 DEX.)

lvl 1. 6 STR, 10 DEX, 0 HP

lvl 2. 6 STR, 10 DEX, 5 HP

lvl 3. 6 STR, 10 DEX, 10 HP

lvl 4. 8 STR, 10 DEX, 13 HP

lvl 5. 10 STR, 10 DEX, 16 HP

lvl 6. 12 STR, 12 DEX, 17 HP

lvl 7. 14 STR, 14 DEX, 18 HP

lvl 8. 16 STR, 16 DEX, 19 HP

lvl 9. 18 STR, 18 DEX, 20 HP

lvl 10. 20 STR, 20 DEX, 21 HP

As you see, STR and DEX will be forever the same number. HP gets slowly higher. I could go on to lvl 200, but it would not be necesary. You can now follow the formule I told you. Good luck with being an permanent noob.

Please add more builds if you want.

[Lysterfiendx]Edit: I have a lv 26 proginner and i have followed a warrior build. 3 Str, 2 Dex. Keeping my dex twice my level. I do admit I have trouble with accuracy at times on Necki Jr's and Ligators. It shouldn't matter unless you plan on doing kPQ's till 30.
