Getting Started

Ability Points Distribution

Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination

Your Luk should be your level+3 in order to use ordinary equips. You can either add 4 INT and 1 LUK per level, or you could add 5 INT per level and a few points into LUK a level before/when you reach the level of your next equips. Make sure to keep track on your LUK and remember that you cannot use a new equip without subtracting the LUK bonus of your last equip [can't equip an item without the right amount of LUK]. INT determines your MP amount. That's why most higher leveled Mages prefer adding 5 INT per level, then add LUK when needed. More INT spread to a few levels = more MP.

1st Job Training

1-8: Maple Island. Quests are VERY helpful.

9-15: Slimes, Stumps, Mushrooms, Orange Mushrooms, Pigs.

16-25: Pigs, Ribbon Pigs, *Kerning PQ [21+], Green Mushroom, Bubblings.

26-30: *Kerning PQ, Horned Mushrooms, Zombie Mushrooms, Green Mushroom, Wild Boar, Stirge [Kerning City subway].

  • Kerning PQ: Magicians are argueably the best class for this PQ. Magicians are also one of the few exceptions to the normal guide of starting this PQ around lvl 24; almost every magician should have no trouble at all with this PQ. When you get into the higher lvls (26-30) the EXP might seem to come slowly. To fix this problem, just try to solo the boss as often as possible, and if need be you can stay inbonus for an extra 5 min.

Lukless Magician

NOTE: This guide contains a dice roll section for AP points. We would like to inform you that dice roll function is not used anymore in GMS and MapleSEA. If you are a beginner, there is no need as all points are assigned to STR. When you get your job advancement, click A and then click on auto-assign points. Please avoid that section and everytime you level up, press 'a' and press auto-assign. You may continue that system or if you are looking to use a special point build eg. dexless assassin, then you may do so.

Lukless Mages, also known as pure INT Mages, keeps his STR, DEX and LUK in the lowest amount possible [4]. While regular-built mages keep their LUK as their level +3, a lukless mage would invest all his AP into INT.

Pros & Cons of making a Luckless Mage

Pros:

• The main advantage for a luckless mage is that the INT boost causes the damage to be higher compared to a normal mage at 2nd job .

• As a result to the higher damage, a luckless mage would usually level up faster than a normal mage. In addition to that, he would also be able to train on higher leveled monsters, at a lower level.

• A luckless mage is easier to fund in the beginning, since you don’t have to buy new equips every few levels.

• Luckless mages have more MP [more INT=more MP received when leveling up]. And after level 43, they would also have more HP [an average Maple Lama Staff or Nocturnal Staff has +100 HP].

• With the addition of level 64 Mage weapons to the game, Luckless mages can match up/have a higher m.atk advantage compared to normal luck mages.

Cons:

• A lack of equipment to fit your level. Mage equips require a level +3 LUK build in order for you to be able to wear them, and a luckless mage is not able to do so.

• Possibly less magic accuracy than normal built mages.

• Your equips should be well scrolled to make up for the normal built mage's equip bonuses. Sadly, the prices of the scrolls needed for a luckless mage’s equips are very high. At lower levels, luckless mages would probably have more money than a normal mage. But, as the levels get higher, it would get harder for the luckless to afford all the scrolls. A luckless should make more efforts to make money, at higher levels.

• Ice, Fire, Poison and Holy attacks in 2nd job don't benefit as much as Heal and Lightning attacks benefit from the extra damage. • At higher levels, a luckless mage would have a harder time competing with normal mages, as their equips keep getting better. With the right scrolled equips, at high levels, a normal mage could probably out-damage a luckless mage at same level. A luckless mage would have to get more money to keep up with the normal mage’s bonuses.

• A luckless mage has less weapon and magic defense [lack of equipment to fit your level and LUK] = higher HP pot usage. • When dying, a lukless mage would lose 10% EXP while a normal built mage would lose only 5% EXP.

• The appearance of a luckless mage’s equips would stay the same at level 100 as they were at level 43, unless it’s covered up with Cash Shop items [or got a Black Umbrella].
