Reason for this Build
According to Shikage (124 Bera Buccaneer) At level 120, you receive 3 skill points from your job instructors. Apply 1 SP to Dragon Strike, Barrage, and Speed Infusion. Dragon Strike and Barrage will be your main attacking skills as a regular Mapler (non-Transformation). Speed Infusion is added till Level 11 to obtain +2 attacking speed. Time Leap is added +1 to cancel out resurrection dealy. Dragon Strike and Barrage are maxed first. Reason being, Super Transformation cooldown is pretty long (10 minutes). Next to max is Demolition and Snatch along with Super Transformation. Energy Orb is maxed later and finally Maple Hero. For more information, refer to the skill description below!

    To Daemarius:
    Yup, you can use the points else where, its your character build. The build above is just a recommendation, you do not need to 100% follow it.

    Some would just add points in 4th job skill instead of 3rd/2nd/1st and vice versa.

    This doesnt make sense. There is no reason whatsoever for maxing Speed Infusion. Leaving it at level 13~15 has plenty of time on it, and those points cna be used elsewhere
