More about me ______________________________________________ A. INTRODUCTION So you want to become a warrior. You've come to the right place, young grasshopper. I will teach you how to become a strong and fierce warrior who can conquer enemies in 1 blow. Just read the FAQ please. 1. Benefits to being a warrior OK first of all, warriors have awesome physical strength, which you should already know. They also have amazing stamina and defensive capabilities, so you can count on that to support you in a battle. Warriors' attacks may be fairly close ranged, but they can do massive damage. There are even skills that increase the damage you do in a battle! Well, thats all you need to know....for now.... 2. Downsides to being a warrior To me, the only downsides to being a warrior is their attacking range. All of the other classes, especially magicians, excel in ranged attacks. Warriors are the only class of players in Maple Story that do not used ranged attacks. ____________________________________________________________________________________ B. About the game 1. Where to get the game If you already have the game in you hard drive, ignore this section and go on with the rest of the FAQ. If you want to get more info about Maple Story, read this section. You're probably wondering, "How do I get this so called 'game' onto my computer?" Well my friend, www.mapleglobal.com is the place to get the game into your computer. Yep. Every single kilobyte of precious technical entertainment comes from that website. My IGN (in-game name) is xxminorityxx, and i just signed up for official MS on July 26, 2005. I play in Scania, so if you want tips just contact me. How do you sign up? Well, www.mapleglobal.com is the place, once again. Just click "Sign Up" and enter all your personal shiat and there ya go. You're signed up. But! You have to verify your account. Just click login, (once you have your account) click "verify", and click "re-send verification code". Now, click "home" on the lil toolbar and find an email saying "Maplestory Verification" or something like that. Click the link, enter the code, and walah. No. Its not complicated at all. Ok, now you know where to get the game. ON WITH THE GUIDE! 2. In-game problems Some problems with MapleStory (MS for short) that I've experienced (but do not any more, thanks to my new computer) may happen to you, so heres a in-guide guide to help you fix them. Maybe you can't see teh game but you hear the music. Your graphic card driver is probably not up-to-date or you're just blind. I can't really remember what you need to actually see the game on the computer so go to mapleglobal.com for that ^_^. Well that's all, hehe. 3. About the game MS is a mario-type hack n' slash game with side scrolling 2-D graphics. Sounds pretty boring, huh? WELL ITS NOT!!! It has plenty of action. You need brains and digital simulation experience to master this game. Heck you can make it to the high scores if you're good enough!! Look for a review at gamefaqs.com for further details. On with the guide pplz. ____________________________________________________________________________________ C. STARTING OFF AS A BEGINNER 1. Getting your stats right WELLLLLLL, to be a warrior you have to have the right stats!!! I'll tell you how your stats should be in this section. OK there are 4 stats, STR (strength), DEX (dexterity), INT (intelligence), and LUK (luck). The only stats you're focusing on are STR and DEX. Don't mess with the other stats unless you're willing to screw your warrior. When you create your character, choose the look, name, etc., you have to roll your stats according to your desired job. Fot the warrior, try to get some points on STR and DEX. Here's an example of a poor roll: STR: 4 DEX: 6 INT: 8 LUK: 8. The STR and dex aren't too high, and INT and LUK, required for magicians, are fairly high. A good roll would be this: STR 7 DEX 8 (or vice versa) LUK and INT: doesn't matter. The STR and DEX are pretty high and I didn't even mention the INT and LUK. since they don't matter. Basically, what I'm trying to say is, get your STR and DEX somewhere above 7. 2. Basic controls You can pretty much go to mapleglobal.com for this one. 3. WELCOME TO MAPLE ISLAND Ahhh....Maple Island, a small little island where beginners start their adventure...I miss it already....lol. Anyways, when you create your character, you're gonna start off at Maple Island. 4. Quests (Maple Island) Borrowing Sera's Mirror Difficulty: N/A Description: Oh no! Poor little Heena is getting sunburned! Oh what ever shall she do! Awww, pshaww. She's asking you to get a mirror from her sister, Sera, who is BARELY that far away from where she is. (lazy little....) Anyway, just walk over to Sera, get the mirror, listen to her make the same opinion i just did, and talk to Heena. You completed the quest. Yay. REWARDS: 1 exp, transported to next map Roger and the Apple (just making up names here....) Difficulty: N/A Description: Roger teaches you how to use inventory items. Talk to the dude with the long hair on the platform and he'll blab about some stuff and cut your health in half. No worries, as he gives you a nutritious apple to recover! Although he teaches you something, I'd really like to come back to Maple Island and kill that idiot with my axe pole arm!! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! REWARDS: 2 exp, transported to next map Sen and the Mushroom Soup Difficulty: N/A Description: Nina's little brother, Sen, is really hungry. Just talk to Nina, get inside the house, talk to Sen, and BAM! Quest done. (I think Nina's just as lazy as Heena. JUST WALK INSIDE THE FREEKN HOUSE AND ASK THE BOY WUT HE WANTS!!!) REWARDS: 3 exp, transported to next map Leaving Maple Town Difficulty: 0.5 Description: Jump the lil obstacles and talk to Peter. Sounds easy, eh? Well sometimes you can miss the obstacles, but barely. REWARDS: 3 exp, transported to next map (where you finally fight some monsters!!) Delivering Maria's Letter Difficulty: 1 Description: Maria needs to get a letter sent to her friend, Lucas, in Amherst, but she's pretty busy. Talk to Maria, get the letter to Lucas, come back to Maria, and get a pretty good reward (for your level). REWARDS: 10 exp, red, green, yellow, blue, or black headband, or brown, red, or green skullcap. (red is only a 10% chance of getting, since it has an accuracy boost) Lvl limit for all: 5 Biggs' Collection of Items Difficulty: 3 Description: For some reason, sailor Biggs wants you to bring him 10 orange mushroom caps and 30 blue snail shells. This shouldn't be too hard, unless you ask him at an early level. REWARDS: Fruits dagger (50%), or Razor-header dagger (50%) 5. Training your Beginner Okay, now that you've got the info on the quests, its time to start building up your beginner. Here's how it should be. Your STR, (e.g. you had 10 str) should be the first to go up. You get 5 AP (ability points) for each level you gain. To open up the stats menu, see the controls on mapleglobal.com. So anyways, once you first level up to lvl 2, put 5 points in your STR Do that until lvl 6. So by lvl 6, your STR should be 35. As you level from there, put the rest of your points into your DEX until level 10. Now you're ready for Bigger and better places..... 6. Bigger and better places. Once you're ready, you can head to South Perry and sail to Victoria Island, the island in Maple Story where you get the 1st and 2nd job advancements. It's also a whole lot bigger. The dungeon in Victoria has a lot of powerful monsters (im starting to sound like a tour guide lol), so watch out unless you think you're ready to fight them. Anyways, good luck! ____________________________________________________________________________________ D. On your way to become a warrior. Now that you're level 10 with 35 STR and at least 20 DEX (I hope), you can become a warrior! Here are some tips before i get to the rest of the guide: 1. Feel free to switch around between what weapons you use. The weapon you like best will determine what your 2nd job will be. 2. REMEMBER TO LEVEL UP YOUR DEX!!!! You may have STR, but what's it good for if you're as clumsy as a skeleton? 3. Try to fight monsters your level or a little below your level (e.g. you're level 8, so fight tree stumps.). 4. Remember, IT'S JUST A GAME!!! If you die, no big deal. You lose some exp. If you die and you were about to level up, it's just a game. Just calm yourself down with a shower or watch TV or chat online. OK now that those lil tips are done, on with the rest of the guide. 1. WELCOME TO VICTORIA ISLAND Yes, you're at Victoria Island, the place to become a warrior. Remember that you're gonna need 35 STR and you have to be at least lvl 10. You should also have at least 20 DEX just to back you up when you fight. If not, no worries. There's a nice training spot nearby just outside Lith Harbor, where you land when you travel to Victoria. Once you're ready, head to Perion via cab. At the very left of Lith is a ticket booth which actually takes you to 4 of the 6 places in Victoria, excluding Lith Harbor of course. Now head to Perion for the small fee of 100 mesos (you'd better not get used to it), and talk to Sitting Bull (Dances With Barlog, as he's called in the game) and...I should save this for the next section. 2. To Perion!!! Ok as i mentioned before, head off to Perion for only 120 mesos, and head to the top of Perion, until you see a large door, and press up on it. You should be in the so-called Warrior's Sanctuary, where you become a warrior. 3. The warrior within. Now that you're in the warrior's sanctuary, Dances With Barlog should be right in front of you. Talk to him, he'll blab about some stuff, and ta dah, you're a warrior (unless you don't have the right stats)! ____________________________________________________________________________________ E. Training your warrior This is where it gets fun. Now that you're a warrior, you gotta get him (or her) good training. 1. 1st job adv. skills Ok before i tell you the skills heres a lil info about them. The warrior's skills make good use of their awesome physical strength and they also focus on the warrior's great deal of HP. I believe I haven't mentioned mana points yet, so here's the deal. Mana points are points used to use skills. Simple, eh? But some skills don't require mana points because some of them are passive skills. The master level of skills is the maximum level they can be leveled up to. SP is the term used for skill points. You get 1 SP when you become a warrior, and 3 SP as you level. Without any further delay, here are the (didadididadididadididadidiDAAAAAAAA!) SKILLS OF THE WARRIOR!! IMPROVING HP RECOVERY Master level: 16 Description: You recover more hp while standing still. Level up?: You should max this one out 2nd, because hp is precious for any class of character. Type: passive IMPROVING MAX HP (or somehtin like that) Master level: 10 Description: You gain more hp as you level up (don't put any AP in hp! Its a waste!) Level up?: Max this one out first. put some points into hp recovery (you need at least 3 hp recovery to put SP into this skill), and dump your SP into this skill until it's maxed out. Type: passive ENDURE Master level: 8 Description: Recover HP while hanging on a rope or ladder (normally you can't) Level up?: Its just a decent skill, but it's always possible to find safe land where you can stand. Put 2 or 3 SP into this one. Type: Passive IRON BODY Master level: 20 Description: Temporarily increases you're weapon def. Level up?: Its not really a good skill, because you're wearing a metal suit! Your weapon def should be high enough, so don't touch this skill. Type: Assign to specific key POWER STRIKE Master level: 20 Description: Hit an increased amount of damage on your enemy Level up?: HELL YEAH!! After you max out HP recovery, Try to max this one out along with slash blast. Type: Assign to specific key SLASH BLAST Master level: 20 Description: Hit multiple enemies in one swing of your sword (or axe, mace, spear, pole arm, etc.) Level up?: Yup. After u max hp recovery, max this one out along with power strike. 2. More about the warrior. Ok now that you learnd the skills and all, it's time to learn even more about the warrior. As i said b4, warriors have awesome physical strength. Their attacks are close range, but they're deadly. OK thats all i have to say (kinda the same as the introduction, eh?). 3. Skill chart I have no exact way of teaching you how to level up your skills, so go wild. 4. Stat chart I have no exact way of teaching you how to level up your stats, so go wild. 5. Building yourself up (recommended training places) You'r prolly really eager to level up, huh? Well lucky for you, I have a lil chart made for you. 10-15: Henesys hunting ground 1, 2, and 3 How to get there: go to Henesys via cab and go 1 map west of Henesys. Walah. You're in Henesys hunting ground 1. Climb the ropes to teh very top of the map to get to hunting ground 2 and 3 Monsters: snails, blue snails, red snails, slimes, tree stumps, orange mushrooms, green mushrooms. 16-20: Same as above 21-24: Pig beach How to get there: Go to Lith harbor. go 5 maps right of Lith harbor. Once you're on the 5th map, (3-way road split) climb the first LADDER you see. not rope, ladder. go right until you see a little flower patch. you should see a rock stuck onto a ledge. Step onto the flower patch, under the rock on the ledge, and press up. Tadah, you're in pig beach. Monsters: blue snails, red snails, pigs, ribbon pig, and 1 iron hog (LVL 40 BEWARE!!!). 25-30: Party Quest (PQ) How to get there: Go to the bottom left hand corner of Kerning City, where you'll find a girl named lakelis. Now just call out "LOOKING FOR PQ!!" or "JOINING PQ!!" or something like that. Eventually, someone will invite you to a party, and you'll be able to PQ. NOTE: the level limits of pq are level 21-30. Refer to a Party Quest FAQ for more info on PQ. Monsters: ligators, curse eyes, jr. neckis, horned mushrooms, green mushrooms. BOSS: King Slime. 25-30 (alternative) Land Of Wild Boar or Tree Dungeon IV How to get there (land of wild boar): Go to Perion, take the north-east teleport, go all the way down until you see double doors, and press up on them. Monsters: Wild Boars, Jr. Boogies, Dark Axe Stumps. How to get there (Tree Dungeon IV): Go to Ellinia, take the southwest teleport, gp 3 maps west of ellinia, and press up at the tree with an entrance and a "danger" sign on it. Monsters: Slimes, Blue Mushrooms, Horned Mushrooms, Green Mushrooms. ____________________________________________________________________________________ F. Choosing Paths Once you're level 30, you can talk to Dances With Barlog again to take the test for the 2nd job adv. Well, he'll give you a letter to take to his apprentice. To get to him, go a map west of Perion, and take the TOP teleport! not the left! TOP!!!! and follow the teleports from there. Once there, talk to the job instructor, follow his instructions for the test, and take the proof of the hero he awards you to Dances With Barlog. Now you can choose between 3 jobs: Fighter, Page, or Spearman. 1. Skills of the fighter THE SKILLS OF THE FIGHTER (dum dum dum) The skills of a fighter focus on their speedy attacks. I don't have any further comments lol. So here they are! (I will only mention the stat names and description, so go to maplesea.com for further details.) SWORD MASTERY Description: Increases the mastery and accuracy of a sword. Only works with a sword in hand. AXE MASTERY Description: Same as above, only axe instead of sword. FINAL ATTACK: SWORD Description: With a certain success rate, deliver a killer blow after using an attacking skill. Only works with a sword in hand. FINAL ATTACK: AXE Description: Same as above, only axe instead of sword. SWORD/AXE BOOSTER: (two seperate skills, i just got tired of writing them all over again. Ill do this for the following jobs.) Temporarily increases the attacking speed of a sword/axe. FURY Description: Temporarily increase the weapon attack of you and your party members on the same map. Also decreases wepn def. POWER GUARD Description: Recoils damage back to enemy. 2. Skills of the Page The page's skills focus on...uhh....affecting other monster's stats? Here they are.... SWORD/MACE MASTERY Description: Increases the mastery and accuracy of a sword/mace. FINAL ATTACK: SWORD/MACE Description: With a certain success rate, deliver a killer blow to your enemy after using an attacking skill. SWORD/MACE BOOSTER Description: Temporarily increases attacking speed of sword/mace THREATEN Description: Decrease the wepn attack and weapon def of every enemy in the map temporarily. POWER GUARD Description: Recoil damage taken from the enemy back to the enemy. 3. The skills of the Spearman The skills of the spearman take the place of shields, since spearmen can't use shields. Here they are. SPEAR/POLE ARM MASTERY: Description: Increase the mastery and accuracy of a spear/pole arm FINAL ATTACK: SPEAR/POLE ARM Description: With a certain success rate, deliver a killer blow to the enemy after using an attacking skill. SPEAR/POLE ARM BOOSTER Description: Temporarily increase the attacking speed of a spear/pole arm IRON WILL Description: Temporarily increase the weapon def and magic def of you and every party member in the map. HYPER BODY Description: Temporarily increase the max HP and MP of you and every party member in the map. 4. Benefits of the Fighter The fighter's attacks aren't the strongest, but they sure are fast. The fighter has amazing speed (for a warrior at least). The fighter can use either a 1 handed sword (e.g. a cutlus) or a two handed sword (e.g. a highlander/lionheart). They can also use 1 handed axes (e.g. a buck) or 2 handed axes (e.g. niam). 5. Benefits of the Page The page's attacks are the same as the fighter's.. The page has a reasonable speed, but the fighter is still the fastest. Their attacking strength is just in the middle, with the spearman being the strongest. Pages can use 1 and 2 handed swords or 1 handed maces (e.g. fusion mace) or 2 handed maces (e.g. aluminum bat) 6. Benefits of the Spearman The spearman's attacks are deadly, but they are the slowest warrior class (or just a class in general) in the game! Their weapon def isnt anything special either, but they have defensive skills to take care of that. The spearman can be slow in attacking, but their attacks are by far one of the most powerful in the game. Their attacking range is also the longest range close range attack in the game (that didnt make much sense >_>). Spearmen use pole arms (e.g. The Nine Dragons) or spears (e.g. Zeco) This is near the end of the guide, but we all have to move on.....*sniff sniff* ILL MISS ALL OF YOU WHO READ THIS FAQ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU'RE ALL SO KIND AND...and.....*SLAP* thank you. ____________________________________________________________________________________ G. Equipment I'm too lazy to do this lol. A FAQ for equipment will come soon young grasshoppers. ____________________________________________________________________________________ H. FAQ I've heard these question asked many times in the game, so here they are, with the answers, of course. Q: Can you switch jobs? A: No, sorry. If you want to play like that, play runescape at www.runescape.com Q: Why can't I become a warrior? I have 35 STR/am level 10 A: Sorry buddy. You have to be level 10/have 35 STR to become a warrior. Q: Why can't I hit this monster? A: You probably didn't level up your DEX, or you have the right DEX, but the monster has a high avoidability, which means you should get a little stronger before fighting it. Q: Where can I get the 3rd job adv.? A: This job advancement will NOT be availible until late august-october. But it is rumored that you will be able to get it through different dimensional teleports throughout Victoria Island and Ossyria. Q. Where can i get the 4th job adv.? A: This job advancement is not yet availible in either version. Although I'd like to see myself doing dark magic with a dark knight (final advancement of the spearman)!! Muahahahahahaha!!! Q. Why can't I log into the game? A. Maybe it's because you're temporarily or permanently banned, or your computer is overheated, or maybe Wizet is patching (updating) the game, or if you play beta, one of those stupid rollback excuses are going on o.O. Q. Where can I get the 2nd job adv.? A. Lucky for us, the 2nd job adv. is availible in the beta test and the official version. Just talk to the person who gave you your first job, follow his instructions to his apprentice, take "The Test", and take the letter he (or she) gives you back to your original instructor. Q. This player is annoying me!! What should i do? A. Either threaten him by saying "I will defame you if you don't stop", or report him for harrassment. Or you could just do both. ____________________________________________________________________________________ I Credits Special thanks to Wizet, for creating MapleStory, Asiasoft, for partnering with Wizet to make MapleStory better, Steve Jenkins and the rest of the staff, for creating cheatcodes.com, My dog, for lying beside me, "supporting" me while I wrote this FAQ, And Microsoft for creating Microsoft Internet Explorer, which Maple Story runs on. ____________________________________________________________________________________ J.
