Below is a brief a walkthrough on 4th Job Skills. Unlike 1st, 2nd and 3rd job skills, 4th job requires you to find 3 different types of books namely skillbook (level 1-10), storybook (quest to find mastery book aka mastery guide) and mastery book (level 11-20, level 21-30). Refer to this post which has a list of all these books and indicates the type of monster that drops those. Have fun reading!

Guide for Fourth Job Advancement

Bring the Recommendation Letter to the 4th Job Instructor in Leafre for acknowledgement. Now, prove to the Instructor that you have what it takes for the 4th job advancement by getting the Heroic Star and Heroic Pentagon. You may hunt the Manon and Griffey to get the required items. Alternatively, head to Eos Tower 44th Floor to get a Secret Letter of Spell at 10 million mesos. After which, look for Chief Tatamo of Leafre Village to exchange for a set of Heroic Star and Heroic Pentagon.

Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) (source)

    What is a skillbook? How does it work with fourth jobs?
    Unlike previous job advances, you are not able to allocate SP to every single skill. Initially, you can only allocate up to 10 points in your core skills and up to 0 points in your non-core skills. In order to allocate points into your non-core skills, you will need to obtain a skillbook. A skillbook is a usable item which allows you to allocate up to 10 points into a non-core skill. You do not need a skillbook for your core skills because you can already allocate the first 10 points to those skills initially. There are 2 more extra books, which are mastery book and storybook.
    .
    So what are the core skills for my class?
    Common – Maple Hero/Warrior (MW)
    Hero – Monster Magnet, Achilles, Brandish
    Paladin – Monster Magnet, Achilles, Blast
    Dark Knight – Monster Magnet, Achilles, Beholder
    F/P Archmage – Quantum Explosion, Mana Reflection, Medusa Eyes
    I/L Archmage – Quantum Explosion, Mana Reflection, Chain Lightning
    Bishop – Quantum Explosion, Mana Reflection, Holy Shield
    Night Lord – Fake, Claw Venom, Soul Javelin
    Shadower – Fake, Dagger Venom, Boomerang Step
    Bowmaster: Sharp Eyes, Bow Mastery, Hamstring
    Crossbowmaster: Sharp Eyes, Crossbow Mastery, Blind
    .
    Okay, so how do I get skillbooks for my non-core skills?
    Most skillbooks can be obtained through fetch quests. Many of these quests will have you running between all of your different job instructors, and a few of them will have you doing jump quests or PQs. Also, you can find some skillbooks dropping from boss monsters, such as Triple Throw (Zakum) or Angel Ray (Zakum). Finally, some quests require that you hunt for a storybook before you even attempt to begin the skillbook quest. So, it really varies.
    .
    What is a storybook? How is it different from a skillbook?
    A storybook is an item that you can find from non-boss monsters, such as Lucidas or Grim Phantom Watches. Storybooks allow you to begin the quest to obtain the skillbook. A skillbook allows you the ability to allocate SP to the first 10 levels of a non-core skill. Even though these two words may look alike, they are not the same thing!
    .
    Why bother wasting time with the fetch quests? I’ll just buy the skillbooks.
    Sorry, but the skillbooks cannot be traded, bought, sold, or put into storage. Storybooks and mastery guides can be bought, traded, and sold, though.
    .
    Hold on… what’s a mastery guide?
    In order to allocate more than 10 points into a skill (whether core or non-core), you have to find level 20 and level 30 mastery guides. To use the level 20 guide, you must have at least 5 points in the skill before you use it. To use the level 30 guide, you must have the at least 15 points in the skill before you use it. Unfortunately, Maple Story likes to make things even more difficult. Level 20 mastery guides have only a 70% chance of success, and level 30 mastery guides have only a 50% chance of success. Sucks, huh? At least the skillbook has a 100% chance of working.
    .
    Oh no! What if a mastery guide fails when I use it?
    Relax, your skills don’t have “slots” like normal weapons. You can use mastery guides on your skills as much as you like.
    .
    Just to recap all of the terminology used here:
    Core Skill – A skill that already has an initial maximum SP level of 10. No skillbooks are required to unlock these. You will be able to allocate points to these skills immediately after you advance to the fourth job.
    Mastery Guide – A special, usable item that lets you increase the maximum SP level of a skill to 20 or 30, with a 70% and 50% success rate, respectively.
    Non-core skill – A skillbook is necessary to unlock these skills.
    Skillbook – An item which works like a scroll. This will allow you to allocate the first 10 points to a skill. These cannot be traded or put into storage.
    Storybook – Special drop from non-boss monsters that allows you to begin the quest for a skillbook

    To get the star/pentagon, you either A) kill Manon and Griffey (without help!) or go to Ludi, buy an item (Ludi Tower) for 10mil, and then talk to Chief Tatamo in the middle of Leafre.

    you can max genesis if…
    1. Have sufficient SP (skill points) to put into it.
    2. Have all 3 books for level 10, 20 and 30 genesis.
    3. Must pump at least half 5 SP into each level before you could use the mastery guide.

    Must have 5 AP in genesis to use level 20 book
    Must have 15 AP in genesis to use level 30 book.

    I have a question.
    I heard that you can max skills beforehand, like Genesis 30?
    That they can be dropped by monsters/bosses.
    I’m wondering what drops them and which skills, please and thank you.
    If you’re too busy to answer, I understand.
