After level 40, you add one dex each time you level. Yes, normal dex sins cap (or should cap) their dex sometime, probably at around 100+ dex. Pros- Look great, have cooler weapons - Never looks typical like other sins - Decent damage - Great defense against monsters - No need for great funding (Better for 1st time players) Cons- "Low" damage group of sins - Are picked on for their low damage (But that's not always true) _______________________________________________________ The Lowdex: Lowdex sins have a base dex that is pretty random. Basically, the player chooses when they want to cap, or stop adding, their dex. With that amount of base dex, the player must buy dex equipment like sauna robes, capes, or shoes, which help them equip the weapon of their choice. Pros- Great damage - Can equip better weapons - Usually look cooler than others - Average defense, not too weak, not too good Cons- You HAVE to be rich to fund a low dex character - Another typical sin?! Wow >.> _______________________________________________________ The Dexless: Dexless sins... where to begin? Basically, you NEVER add dex after level 10... only luk is added. Pros- "Godly" damage with the right equips - Yeah, you're just godly <3 Cons- No defense - All look the same -- PaC, Sauna, Bamboo hat, BSS, Kandayo, Earrings -- Seriously, they all look the same - MUST be properly funded or else it's useless to make a dexless sin. (Properly funded means 100+ mil!) _______________________________________________________ [XXI] The Path of an Assassin-Rogue Congratulations! You have just chosen to become an rogue. They are probably the most versatile character in all of MapleStory. Equiped with speed, and great DPS (Damage per Second), they "own" all other classes. ~Your jobs available~ Rogue (Level 10) --> Assassin (Level 30) --> Hermit (Level 70) --> Night Lord (Level 120) _______________________________________________________ [Z1] Job Instructions for level 10 To get your job: 1.) Level yourself to level 10. 2.)Have a base dex of 25. (All other points go into Luk) 3.)Head over to Kerning City in Victoria Island. Talk to the Dark Lord who is located inside the Bar. _______________________________________________________ [Z2] Point Distribution-Level 10-30: (This is just a suggestion, you are free to do what you'd like, but this is probably one of the best point distributions to train with) Level 10: Lucky seven Level 11: Nimble body (3) Level 12:Keen eyes (2), lucky seven Level 13:Keen eyes (2), lucky seven Level 14:Keen eyes (2), lucky seven Level 15:Keen eyes (2, maxed), lucky seven Level 16:Lucky seven (3) Level 17:Lucky seven (3) Level 18:Lucky seven (3) Level 19:Lucky seven (3) Level 20:Lucky seven (3, maxed) Level 21:Nimble body(3) Level 22:Nimble body(3) Level 23:Nimble body(3) Level 24:Nimble body(3) Level 25:Nimble body(3) Level 26:Nimble body(2), Disorder Level 27:Disorder (2), Dark sight Level 28:Dark sight (3) Level 29:Dark sight (3) Level 30:Dark sight (3) In the end, you should have: Lucky Seven: 20, maxed ~ Nimble body:20, maxed ~ Keen eyes: 8, maxed ~ Disorder: 3 ~ Dark sight: 10 ~ Double stab:0 _______________________________________________________ [Z3] Training Spots Until Level 30: 1-10: Snails (It would be best if you'd stay on Maple Island, but you are free to leave there at level 8) 11-15: Slimes are great training. Training at the Slime Tree located in Ellinia is amazing. 16-20: Some may go to Pig Beach, but you can also train at orange mushrooms. A great spawn of those are in Henesys Hunting Ground, but that may be crowded. 21-30: Ant Tunnel 1. At levels 21-25, stay at Horny Mushrooms. After, head down the map to the mix of both. _______________________________________________________ [XXII] The Path of an Assassin-Sin Now, you're level 30.
