Why Be A Spearman?

Warrior Job Tree, with the Spearman indicated in red.

A Spearman is a class that is known as the best warrior class in Maple story. This, in some people's opinion's is true. Spearmen are probably the class with the most builds.

Pros and Cons

All classes have goods and bads. These are the spearmen's:

Pros

  • Spears and Polearms, Spearmen's weapons, have long range (longest range of all warriors), thus making slash blast a powerful skill as it can hit more enemies.
  • Higher MP than Fighters and Pages.
  • Get Hyper Body, a fantastic party skill.
  • Slash/Stab, dealing even more damage.

Cons

  • Lower HP than Fighters and Pages.
  • One of the slower classes.
  • Can't equip shields (spears and polearms are 2-handed).
  • A very large damage range, sometimes bad.

Spears or Polearms

Choosing between spears and pole arms isn't easy. Look below to find pros and cons for each weapon.

Pros - Spears

Cons - Spears

  • Only approximately two-fifths (≈40%) of the attacks are stabs, which weakens the spear's usefulness

Pros - Polearms

  • Approximately Three-fifths (≈60%) of the attacks are slashes, powerful for polearms and can hit more enemies above and below you.
  • Dragon Fury has less delay than Buster.

Cons - Polearms

  • Usually more expensive than Spears
  • Not useful for using Buster, which attacks multiple enemies and hits multiple times.
