MapleStory Dual Blade Skills and Skill Builds

The Explorer Heroes: Dual Bladers


~ Credits to Hanabira.Kage for skill comments
~ Credits to poeinstinct for Dual Blade Training Ground

Introduction
The previous Dark Lord had a student Jin and a daughter Sulhee. So basically what happened is that the friend of the previous Dark Lord, Tristan, requested help to kill Balrog. Unfortunately, Dark Lord got turned into a monster by Balrog and his student Jin had to kill Dark Lord because he was attacking Kerning City. The daughter of the previous Dark Lord, Sulhee, saw the dead body of her father brought by Jin. She thought that Jin framed him and killed him because of his position. So Jin became the next Dark Lord and Sulhee created a secret dark organization to go against Jin. (Although, she loved Jin) Now the rogues are disappearing from Kerning City by Sulhee’s command to make them into Dual Blade to fight against Jin.

Q: What does the + job means?
A: All +job SP has to be spent before the next real job.
So you can save SP for the job at 20, 55, etc, but not for 30/70. You can’t save SP from say, lv20 for lv55, because there’s a regular advance level between them that requires you to spend it all.

Summary – Total 240 SP


Rogue Skills LV 10-20


Nimble Body (Max Lv. 20) Passive
Increases accuracy and avoidability.
LV 01 : Accuracy +1, avoidability +1
LV 10 : Accuracy +10, avoidability +10
LV 20 : Accuracy +20, avoidability +20
This skill is optional. Thief primary stat is LUK (luck).
LUK provides accuracy, damage and avoidability.
Skill point (SP) is spent on this skill if no useful skills available.

Keen Eyes (Max Lv. 8) Passive
Increases the range of attack using throwing weapons such as throwing stars & knives.
LV 01 : Range of attack for throwing weapon: +25
LV 04 : Range of attack for throwing weapon: +100
LV 08 : Range of attack for throwing weapon: +200
The official description is misleading abit.
As dual blades, you do not throw katara (dual blade weapon).
This skill is only useful for thief that uses claw and throwing star.
Dual Blades does not require this skill at all! Don’t add SP into it.

Disorder (Max Lv. 20) Supportive
Temporarily decreases the morale of an opponent.
Its weapon def. and attack will suffer, and the
attacking enemy will suddenly stop attacking.
Can’t perform this on enemy that’s already in “disorder”.
LV 01 : MP -5; Enemy’s weapon attack -1, weapon def. -1 for 7 seconds
LV 10 : MP -7; Enemy’s weapon attack -10, weapon def. -10 for 31 seconds
LV 20 : MP -10; Enemy’s weapon attack -20, weapon def. -20 for 60 seconds
This is not a useful skill and does not work on boss monsters.
In practical, we either defeat monsters within 1-4 hits without letting
them to counter attack. Disordering one by one is slow way of training.
However, 3 SP is required in Disorder to unlock Dark Sight.

Dark Sight (Max Lv. 20) Supportive
Use MP to hide behind the shadows. While hiding, the enemy won’t attack, but you can’t attack back either. All movements other than attacking are available. It’s temporary, so after a while, you’ll be back to normal
Pre-requisite: Disorder Lv. 3
LV 01 : MP -24; Disappear for 10 seconds, speed -30
LV 10 : MP -15; Disappear for 100 seconds, speed -12

LV 10 : MP -9; Damage 95% x 2 Hits
LV 20 : MP -14; Damage 130% x 2 Hits

Lucky Seven (Max Lv. 20) Active
Use MP to throw 2 throwing stars and apply damage based on LUK, regardless of the rate of javelin mastery.
LV 01 : MP -8; Damage 58% x 2 Hits
LV 10 : MP -11; Damage 100% x 2 Hits
LV 20 : MP -16; Damage 150% x 2 Hits

LV 20 : MP -100, 50% damage, Attacks 15 enemies, 70% Probability,
Decrease accuracy by 85, 20 Seconds, 60 Seconds Cooldown, 220% range

The Jump distance increases as you advance your skill level.
LV 01 : MP -60
LV 10 : MP -33
LV 20 : MP -13


Blade Lord Skills LV 70-120


Advanced Dark Sight (Max Lv. 20) Passive
Enhances Dark Sight to allow you to sometimes successfully attack
while using Dark Sight, without canceling that ability.
Required Skill: Lv. 20 Dark Sight
LV 01 : 11% Probability
LV 10 : 29% Probability
LV 20 : 49% Probability

Bloody Storm (Max Lv. 10) Active
An advanced version of Slash Storm.
Attacks multiple enemies at a very high speed with elaborate movements. Required skill: Lv. 20 Slash Storm. Lv. 10 effect: Can be used with Lv. 10 Flying Assaulter
LV 01 : MP -35, 190% damage, Attacks 6 enemies, Attacks 2 Times, 250% range
LV 05 : MP -35, 230% damage, Attacks 6 enemies, Attacks 2 Times, 250% range
LV 10 : MP -40, 280% damage, Attacks 8 enemies, Attacks 2 Times, 300% range
It’s raining blood! The only bad thing about this skill is that it requires max Slash Storm, which requires a skill book. Bloody Storm hits hard, is flashy, and chains from Flying Assaulter to boot. Only maxed Bloody Storm can be chained from Flying Assaulter.

Mirror Image (Max Lv. 30) Supportive

Summons a doppelganger that looks just like you to assist in attacks for a certain amount of time. Your doppelganger cannot use certain skills
LV 01 : MP -250, 60 Seconds, Mirrors 22% Damage
LV 15 : MP -230, 120 Seconds, Mirrors 45% Damage
LV 30 : MP -200, 180 Seconds, Mirrors 60% Damage
Don’t worry, this doppelganger is tame. A Shadow Partner that does not cost any summoning rocks, and has an even higher damage multiplier to boot. So why didn’t I max this earlier in my build? Because Mirror Imaging does NOT take into account skill damage multipliers. In other words, its damage is calculated off of your normal attacks even when you’re using skills. Plus, the maximum number of hits is only 15 including both normal and mirrored attacks. Still, it’s rather useful so I’d max this after finishing up with the other useful skills.

Owl Spirit (Max Lv. 20) Active
Summons an owl spirit that attempts to instantly kill 1 enemy. If successful, your attack rate for a set number of attacks will increase by 1.5x. However, the effect will be restricted on some skills.
LV 01 : MP -50, 200% damage, 21% Probability, 3 Attacks, 130 Seconds Cooldown, 300% range
LV 10 : MP -60, 290% damage, 30% Probability, 6 Attacks, 85 Seconds Cooldown, 300% range
LV 20 : MP -80, 390% damage, 40% Probability, 9 Attacks, 60 Seconds Cooldown, 300% range
Rather useful, but the cooldown is a total put-off. Besides, what regular enemy can you find which you’d have trouble killing in a few hits?

Upper Stab (Max Lv. 20) Active

Launches multiple enemies into the air. You can deal additional damage by attacking the enemies in the air.
LV 01 : MP -25, 150% launching damage, +32% Damage while enemy in air, Attacks 3 enemies, 176% range
LV 10 : MP -30, 195% launching damage, +50% Damage while enemy in air, Attacks 4 enemies, 176% range
LV 20 : MP -40, 245% launching damage, +70% Damage while enemy in air, Attacks 6 enemies, 176% range
Surprisingly, this skill actually deals one of the highest DPS for a Dual Blade due to its ridiculously high speed. Its delay is so short, you can actually launch enemies and then jump and Upper Stab them again in mid-air!

Flying Assaulter (Max Lv. 20) Active
You descend diagonally from the air, slashing enemies within a certain range, with a chance to stun them. To use the skill, you must have at least 120% Jump. Required Skill: Lv. 20 Self Haste. Lv. 10 effect: Lv. 20 Tornado Spin can be used with Lv. 10 Bloody Storm
LV 01 : MP -24, 160% damage, Attacks 4 enemies, X Var = 27, Attacks 2 Times, 3% Chance to Stun, 4 Seconds, 250% range
LV10 : MP -28, 250% damage, Attacks 5 enemies, X Var = 35, Attacks 2 Times, 5% Chance to Stun, 5 Seconds, 270% range
LV 20 : MP -36, 400% damage, Attacks 8 enemies, X Var = 55, Attacks 2 Times, 7% Chance to Stun, 6 Seconds, 320% range
“You are not high enough to use this skill.” Be prepared to have this sentence flood your chatbox. Reason being, you have to jump before you can use Flying Assaulter AND you must use this at pretty much the peak of your jump. Still, this is THE best mobbing skill you’ll get in terms of DPS, and it chains into Bloody Storm or Tornado Spin for a super flashy attack. You need a Lv10 Flying Assaulter before you can chain it into either Tornado Spin or Bloody Storm.


Blade Master Skills LV 120-200


Venom (Max Lv. 30) Passive
You attack after coating your dagger with venom. Enemies have a chance to be poisoned by the venom and continuously take damage. Can stack up to 3 times. The enemy’s HP will not go below 1 through Venom.

LV 15 : 6 Seconds, 45 Basic Attack, 40% Probability

The amount of HP consumed, the damage, and the attack enhancement effect vary depending on the gauge. However, the attack rate enhancement effect is restricted on some skills.
LV 01 : MP -150, 920% damage, Attacks 8 enemies, 40% Maximum Strength, Y Var = 200, 30 Seconds, 100 Seconds Cooldown, 250% range

Chains of Hell (Max Lv. 30) Active

When you have Dark Sight active, Chains of Hell pulls an enemy close to deal damage by attacking up to 12 times. However, stationary monsters have to be in range.
LV 01 : MP -55, 100% damage, 350 Range, Attacks 12 Times, 140% range
LV 15 : MP -65, 170% damage, 400 Range, Attacks 12 Times, 140% range
LV 30 : MP -75, 250% damage, 450 Range, Attacks 12 Times, 140% range

Mirrored Target (Max Lv. 30) Supportive

poeinstinct personally suggest that you try to train at Windraiders from levels 50+~70. The EXP:HP ratio is incredibly high and you can level up faster than at MP3. It is however a challenge, getting to Lower Ascent but the rewards are great. It is easy to get past monsters on the way to the Jump Quest map. Simply turn on your Dark Sight. The JQ is the trickier part. A video of how to get to Lower Ascent can be found HERE. If you need to repot, easiest way is to make one of your other characters sit in Singapore and buy “food” from the NPC such as “Crab Cakes” or “Rambutans” and place them in the MTS. Take note that there is a 5000 meso fee when you place an item in the MTS. This way, you won’t have to keep going back and forth to the town to repot. Here’s a better understanding of the method.

MapleStory Lending INT Equipment Service for HP Washing

13/12/2009 16 comments

Prelude
It’s not easy to own a full set of 150 int gear. Nor it is easy to lend from friends either. That’s how the rich MapleStory Players come out with this service.


How does it work?


The service provider will log in your char and wear his INT item on your character.
Then they help you to level your character (your character EXP should be 99.98%)
They do not train your character from scratch (0% EXP)
This service isn’t free as some Lending INT Equip Service Providers


Here are the details:


Int gear total int excluding neck/egg : 218
Int gear including neck/egg : 241
Cost : $10 per level / 100m meso per lvl

1 : Express your interest to the “Lending INT Equipment Service Provider”.
2 : Service Provider sends you his bank account number.
3 : You will need to transfer money to his bank or leave 50 million meso in your character.
4 : Make sure you have transfered all your items in another account (naked account)
5 : Service Provider will then ask for your log in id and password
4 : He will log in and help you level with the INT gear.
5 : Once he is done, he will notify you (via SMS) and you can change your password.


Is this trustable? Risky?


Go for Service Providers who are very well known in MapleStory community, if they cheat you, this will ruin their reputation. Some service provider do this to help other people who have helped them in this service. Win win situation for both parties (the service provider and user)


Aquila bowman who use double washing approach.



This concept was first developed by Tiger from Maplegobal (Slaute all guys) and further tested out and improved by many guys including Tanyia from maplesea (bootes)(Sorry i can’t named one by one there is too much of you guys down there) and me. Hp washing refers to adding it Ap into hp. And then buy ap reset from cash shop. -mp and add the ap into the stats which you want. For eg if you are warrior you will – mp and add it to str.

Ways to wash hp :

Mehod 1: For warriors and other class ( warrior pls stick to this method only )
i) Before you level,wear your int gear and level
ii) Add AP into HP
iii) Use AP reset, -MP + back stats

Method 2: For desperado that want to get HP asap (provided you got enough MP not for warrior )
i) Use AP reset – MP + HP ( if you do not have extra AP, you can use AP reset -AP + HP 1st )
ii) Repeat the -MP + HP process until you reach the limit. Use back the last point you can wash to add back to stats

Mehod3 : Double washing ( For desperado,rich and with int gear min 150 INT. Double wash = double $. estimate of 10k sgd to wash to 30k hp with hb for thief and bowman class not for warrior )
i) Before you level,wear your int gear and level
ii) Add AP into MP
iii) Use AP reset, -MP + HP
iv) Use AP reset – MP +Stats
The concept of double washing is to gain more MP so that you can wash more. We take for example a NL with min MP already.
If he using Method 1, He can only wash 1 time. End of story. +18HP , + 10MP
If he using Method 3, He can wash all 5 AP when he double wash. Lvl up add 22+ MP . Each AP added into MP gains around 20MP.
Therefore 20×5+22 = 122 MP. Double washing = 5x12MP +5x12MP= 120 MP. Each HP gains around 18HP.
So in total, you gain around 5×18= 90 HP and 2 extra MP. To wash 5 AP requires 10 AP reset = around $50 sgd

MapleStory Fishing Lagoon Guide

11/12/2009 3 comments

Simple Fishing Guide written by mrs.oro’s

Fishing is actually a very simple business. However, the concept of fishing could still be remote for some of us. I’ve written a guide, hopefully, it can clear some doubts about fishing.


Introduction – What is fishing?


Fishing is a means for players to earn experience points, mesos, ores and fishes in the game.


NPC involved


Kedrick the Fisherman. Located in most towns.


4 Requirements for fishing

1) Minimum Level 10 in order to enter the Lagoon.

2) Fishing Chair (50000 mesos; no expiry)

3) EITHER
a) Fishing Rod

OR
b) VIP Fishing Rod

4) Fishing baits (2 types)

a) Regular baits (120 baits each time, payable 3000 mesos)
b) Delicious baits (120 baits each time, exchange with Delicious Bait Can bought for 1000 @cash from Cash Shop)


How to fish


1) Go to Cash Shop. Buy either a Fishing Rod or VIP Fishing Rod depending on your individual preference. (Optional: buy Delicious Bait Can)
2) Talk to Kedrick the Fisherman. Buy a Fishing Chair for 50000 mesos. Buy fishing baits. (Optional: exchange Delicious Bait Can for 120 Delicious Baits)
3) Enter Fishing Lagoon by talking to Kedrick. Once inside Lagoon, click on the “Setup” tab and double-click the fishing chair to begin fishing.


Process of fishing


Basically your character will do nothing except to fish. Depending on the fishing rod you use, the character will gain something after every 30 seconds / 1 minute. “SUCCESS” will appear on top of your character if you have gained something significant. A non-profitable yield will give only 10 mesos otherwise.


What does “SUCCESS” constitute of?


These are what you can get per bait:
1) mesos: 100 to 15000 mesos (*upper limit needs to be verified)
2) 1 unit of ore: either a mineral or gem
3) experience points: varying amounts
4) fish: for “Secret Dish of Great Chef” quest


Why fish?


Basically, players fish mostly to gain experience. This is especially relevant to high level players (4th jobbers). Each fishing session using only Regular Baits can yield approximately 0.5% experience. If combined with Delicious Baits, each session will yield 1-2% experience. For a low level player, 1-2% experience gain can be attained in a matter of minutes; for high level players, 1-2% experience gain could mean 1 million or 10 million experience points. Hence, it is not worth the mesos or real life currency to start fishing at low levels.


What drops can you get from fishing?


Fish (variety of sizes):
Carp(100cm), Carp(113cm),
Salmon(166cm), Salmon(183cm)
Whitebait(3.6cm) Whitebait(5cm), Whitebait(6.5cm), Whitebait(10cm)
Sailfish(120cm),
Sword (Level 1), Pico-pico Hammer, Shovel(quest)


Related topic: Quest for Secret Dish of Great Chef


Each fishing session randomly gives you 4 types of fishes of varying sizes. The quest requires a certain number of a particular fish type and size (e.g. Whitebait 3.6cm). You may end up with a good number of carps of varying sizes but not the one needed by the quest (specifically, Carp 100cm), hence it is not possible to complete the quest in 1 fishing session. Most of the time, you will have to fish for days or weeks to finish this quest. The quest is repeatable but the reward is mediocre, so no point doing it imo.

Quest requirement as shown below:


What if my ETC slots are full?


If your ETC slots are full but your bait yields an ETC item (ore or fish), you will not get anything (a.k.a you have wasted 1 bait). A message saying, “You cannot get anymore items” will show up. However, this will not affect meso or experience gained from fishing.

Illustration: I have emerald ore, carp 30cm and mithril ore in my ETC slots and the rest of filled up. As I continue to fish, I can only get emerald ore, carp 30cm and mithril ore. I will not be able to receive other ores or fishes.

Fishing will continue until all the baits run out.


When can I buy the fishing baits?


Fishing baits can only be bought once a day. The timer will reset at 12 a.m. daily.

Illustration 1
Player buys Regular Bait at 9.00am and exchanged Delicious Bait at 9.00am. The next time he/she can buy and exchange baits will be 12.00am the next day.

Illustration 2
Player buys Regular Bait at 11.55pm and exchanged Delicious Bait at 11.55pm. The next time he/she can buy and exchange baits will technically be 12.00am (5 minutes later). However, the player has to finish consuming all the baits before he/she can make another purchase.

Illustration 3
Player buys Regular Bait at 12.15am and exchanged Delicious Bait at 12.15am. The next time he/she can buy and exchange baits will be 12.00am the next day.

Illustration 4
Player buys Regular bait at 11.55pm and exchanged Delicious Bait at 12.00am. The next time he/she can buy Regular baits will be 12.00am (5 minutes later) and exchange Delicious Baits at 12.00am 24 hours later.

Note: It doesn’t matter how many Delicious Bait Cans you want to buy or stack in your CASH inventory. You can only exchange 1 Delicious Bait Can per day.


Fishing Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)

Q: When you say, ‘each fishing session’, what are you referring to ?
- each catch ?
- 120 baits = 1 session ?
A: Each fishing session refers to 120 regular baits.
If you bought Delicious Bait Can, each session will be a total of 240 fish baits.

The duration of the fishing will depend on the fishing rod you use. For example:

1) Ordinary rod: 120 regular baits = 120 minutes
Ordinary rod: 120 regular baits + 120 delicious baits = 240 minutes

2) VIP rod: 120 regular baits = 60 minutes
VIP rod: 120 regular baits + 120 delicious baits = 120 minutes

Q: Is it possible to buy the chair and use it outside the fishing lagoon?
The fishing chair can be bought any time but it can only be used inside the lagoon.

Q: What level do you suggest we should start fishing at?
I’d say when 0.5% of your TNL (exp To-Next-Level) is 1m exp, i.e. your TNL is around 200m.
You won’t really see the effect of exp gained from fishing until you’re at a desperate-enough level.

Q: Do you mean player at any level fishes gets 0.5%/bait?
Hahaha! Definitely not per bait!
Approximately 0.5% for 120 regular baits, and yes, 0.5% for all levels.

Q: Since I am only level 58, it is not worth it for me to afk right?
I think it’s a too early to fish. 0.5% at that level is probably around 5000 exp? Not too difficult to get.

Q: Could fishing earn lots of meso such as 5k per bait (600k per day)
On a good day, you’ll only get 40000 mesos for 120 regular baits probably.
