Introduction
“I must go. The Black Magician must be stopped!”

The Arans were legendary heroes who fought to protect the Maple World many years ago from the Black Magician. Unfortunately, they were all cursed and frozen by the Black Magician when they finally managed to seal him. You begin the game as a Lv200 Aran, during the war with the Black Magician. After rescuing the villagers, you decide to join your comrades instead of getting on the ship with the villagers. That was the last time any Aran was seen roaming the Maple World.

You awake to a soft voice calling out to you. The girl, Lirin, tells you that this place is Rien and that you were a legendary hero in the past before you were frozen. You find that you have absolutely no idea what she is talking about, and yet you feel strangely inclined to believe what she is saying. It is as if there are still remnants of your memories beckoning to you, telling you that Lirin is speaking the truth. You decide to follow her in order to recover your lost abilities and memories.

You strike a Muru, the weakest monster in Rien. Ahh…surely you can’t be a legendary hero with this level of power! Perhaps your skills have gotten rusty. In that case, all you have to do is get back to where you were before, right? If you got there once, surely you can get back there once more…

As you would have noticed, the Arans use the Polearm as their weapon of choice. However, they are far from being slow when fighting. In the right hands, the Arans are formidable characters capable of despatching enemies quickly. The Arans are unique in that they utilise the COMBO battle system, which enhances their attacking capabilities when they chain together multiple hits.



Aran Advantage (Pros) and Disadvantage (Cons)

Pros:

- Has damage reducing skill (Combo Barrier) and healing skills (Combo Drain)
– Burn less health potions than most/all classes in the game because of Combo Drain.
– Strongest non-ranged class in the game.
– Tons of buffs that benefit both your damage and how little/how much you get hit.
– Some of the farthest reaching melee moves in the game.
– Due to the large lack of active buffs, dispel does not affect the Aran class as much as others.
– This is the only class that can freeze boss monsters!
– Combo Drain completely solves it. Arans should have no problems with HP.
– Smart Knockback aids all party members. Knockbacking boss monster means it attacks less.
– Can KB (knockback) almost all enemies
– Has elemental advantage against Fire (using Snow Charge)
– Tossed enemies receive additional damage, allowing faster kills
– Has a Rush-like skill at Second Job for easy mobbing
– Has a mobbing skill in First Job, and new mobbing skills every Job
– Has natural critical at Third Job
– Combo Ability increases WA with more hits
– High Attack Speed (Pole Arm Booster -3 slowness on Polearm)
– Combo Ability increases WA (weapon attack) with more hits
– Aran class excels at small, single-level maps with tightly packed mobs.

Cons:

- Unable to enter Warrior Training Center (Power B.Fore NPC) nearby Perion City
– Typical warrior accuracy problems.
– Lower HP than normal warrior.
– Constantly press ATTACK button to activate Double/Triple Swing (hurts finger)
– Unable to use ATTACK button in MACRO SKILL SYSTEM
– Need to constantly kill monsters to keep your combo up, else you lost all.
– You have to do quests for most of your skills. (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th job)
– Aran pay more money if they want mounts. (Tamed monster to ride on their back)
– Low damage in First Job with no or low leveled Combo Ability.
– Critical rate and damage are low without high combo count
– Snow Charge does not freeze; training at high-leveled Fire mobs is a huge problem
High MP usage
– Spamming double and triple Swing consumes lots of MP.
– There is a chance where your attack misses the monster if they knockback you first.
Stun/seduce breaks combos
Certain boss mobs that Aran would normally excel at (Papulatus, Zakum, Horntail) turn out to be poor choices due to their ability to stun. However, if the party member consists of many high level Arans with Smart Knockback maxed, this will be a different case. If Aran constantly knockback those boss before they cast those combo-breaker skills, then those boss won’t stand a chance casting any spell at all! Ownage?
Slow leveling at higher levels
– The best exp/hour mobs tend to be ones that can be 1-2HKO’d.
– However, this class needs to have mobs with higher hits/KO to use their combo efficiently.
– This can lead to slower training and make it harder to reach higher levels.
Skills consuming combo
– Aran is limited to slight variations of double/triple Swing until level 200.
– The only time when Aran can use other skills is by using up the combo.
– Unable to spam a skill a certain skill unless you obtained sufficient combos.
– Most powerful attacks require a certain amount of combo hits before they can be used


Common Aran Misconceptions and FAQ


Q: Can I prepare a level 10 character especially for Aran before it’s release?
A: No. You create it like you would create a Knight of Cygnus Nobless.
You must create it through the character selection window. Below is a picture

Q: Can I make KOC (Knight of Cygnus) in Aran?
No. You can’t make Aran if you are in KOC nor Adventurer.
KOC (Knight of Cygnus) and Adventurer are different category of class.
Aran is a new category class, and can’t be mixed into KOC nor Adventurer.
Note: Adventurer is Warrior, Bowman, Magician, Thief, Pirate
Note: KOC is Nobless, Soul Master, Flame Wizard, Wind Breaker, Night Walker, Striker

Q: Do Aran wear Warrior equipments?
A: Yes. Aran wears same equipment as Warrior. Aran primary weapon is polearm.
Aran is a hybrid of Page and Spearman. (Page = Cold Element, Spearman = Polearm)
However, Aran has unique equipments that Adventurer Warrior doesn’t possess.
For example: Wolf Mount, Steel Polearm, Lirin’s Ring, Combo Medals, etc.

Q: Can Arans use spears as well or just pole arms?
A: Aran can use ANY warrior weapons. However, only Polearm can activate the combo ability. In addition, polearm is the only weapon that allows Aran to use NORMAL attack that hits mobs of monster (similar to Slash Blast) without consuming any MP (mana points).

Q: What makes Aran unique compare to Adventurer Spearman using polearm?
A: Aran NORMAL attack is able to hit up to 3 monster at once without using MP.
Similarly to Slash Blast, damage is split according to the number of monsters being hit.
Also, Aran only swings their polearm (no stab but pure swing animation!) Isn’t that great?

Polearm deals most damage when Swing while Spear deals most damage when stab.
If you compare Aran to Adventurer Spearman using polearm,
normal spearman wielding a polearm will do a random 60% swing, 40% stab.

This allows Aran to deal high constant damage without the stab animation!
(Note: Swing provides wider attack range that hits monster at top platform as well)

Misconception: Arans need to have a high combo to be good, otherwise they suck…
Combos do in fact increase your damage, but it doesn’t mean they suck without them. The combo system makes Aran class special since some powerful skills are activated through consuming combos rather than consuming MP (save MP for Aran!) Combo is merely a bonus added to Aran’s awesome damage.

How much HP (hit points, health) does Aran gained every level up?
Arans gain roughly 44~48 HP per level up between Lv10~30 (not sure whether it changes past 30). This is equivalent to a Warrior with Lv5 Improving MaxHP Increase. A Warrior with maxed Improving MaxHP Increase (Lv10) gains 64~68 HP per level up. As you can see, Arans are not very far behind in terms of HP.
Without washing HP:
Lv50: at least 2300 HP
Lv100: at least 4600 HP
Lv200: at least 9200 HP

Q: “Can we change our tanned skin (brown) to something else?”
Yes you can! But it cost NX Cash (Nexon Global MapleStory) or A-Cash (Asiasoft South East Asia)

Q: “Do we get to choose white hair color during character creation?”
No. Only basic the hair color, which are black, orange, yellow, brown.

Q: Is it true that Aran’s lose combo after getting seduced or stunned?
Yes and no. Arans don’t lose the combo as soon as they are stunned/seduced, they lost it after 3.5 seconds. But seduce/stun lasts for longer than that, so you can bet that if you do get seduced/stunned, it’s gonna end your combo.

Q: How does Combo Skill works?

The combo skills has been bothering me quite sometimes. As you can see all…
Damage Dealing Combo Attack is (DOWN) + (LEFT/RIGHT) + (ATTACK)
and Buff Combo Skill is (DOWN) + (DOWN) + (ATTACK)

Combo Smash at 30 combo : (DOWN)+ LEFT/RIGHT + (ATTACK)
Combo Drain at 30 combo : (DOWN) + (DOWN) + (ATTACK)
Fenrir Phantom at 100 combo : (DOWN) + (LEFT/RIGHT) + (ATTACK)
Tempest at 200 combo : (DOWN) + (LEFT/RIGHT) + (ATTACK)
EZ Shield at 200 combo : (DOWN) + (DOWN) + (ATTACK)

Is the skills only activated at exact 30/100/200 combo?
like this very hard get exact


The combo skills require AT LEAST the stated combo count to be used. If there is a skill using the same key input but a higher combo count, that other skill will be used instead from that other skill’s stated combo count onward. e.g. Combo Smash requires 30 COMBO. At any point from 30~99 COMBO, I can use Combo Smash. Once I hit 100 COMBO, however, I will be forced to use Fenrir Phantom (100~199) instead. Similarly, if I have a combo count of 200 or higher, I will be forced to use Tempest instead of the previous two skills. Tempest can be used anywhere from 200~30000 (maximum) COMBO. However, once you use it, the counter will reset to 0. So using it at 30000 is a quite a waste. Your combo returns to 0 whenever you use a combo skill, (skill that consumes combo instead of MP mana) no matter how many combo you have.

Q: How fast do Aran charge their combos?
(Note: I’ll assume that the 1st hit also hits 12 mobs, since I’m not sure yet)
Let’s take Triple Attack. 1 swing hits up to 12 mobs.
Therefore 3 swings = 36 COMBO (assuming there are 12 mobs).
9 swings (3 Triple Attacks) = 108.
So you just need 3 Triple Attacks on 12 mobs to get break 100 COMBO.
Of course, with Full Swing (3rd job), a complete Triple Swing becomes a 4-hit combo:
2 Triple Attacks = 96 COMBO. So 2 Triple Attacks + 1 hit = 108 COMBO
Over Swing (4th job) makes a complete Triple Swing a 5-hit Combo:
2 Triple Attacks = 120 COMBO (yay!)
As you can see, mobbing racks up your combo counter VERY quickly.


So.. I made an Aran, now how do I add the AP?


Aran’s AP (Ability Points) follows the same pattern as any other warrior:
STR (strength) is your main stat and DEX (dexterity) is your secondary stat.
Your DEX is always double your level. Example: If your Aran is level 30, your DEX is 60.
Aran AP Auto-Distribution
If you follow the “auto distribution” you will receive:
3 STR and 2 DEX each level from Level 1 – 30.
4 STR and 1 DEX each level from Level 31 – 70.

If you have sufficient funding, you can cap your DEX much earlier.

Regular DEX (Dexterity)
Recommended to add DEX each level. [For first-time players]
This build will have the most accuracy, but weakest attack.
(STR is your primary source for damage, DEX is for boosting your accuracy)
If you follow the Auto AP Distribution by Nexon/Asiasoft:
Auto-AP adds 2 DEX each level till Level 30, and 1 DEX till Level 70.
Note: Get a Zakum Helm and Deputy Star (for more accuracy) when you have the funds.
It’s recommended to cap (limit) DEX around DEX 80 for this build, but it isn’t mandatory,

Low DEX (Dexterity)
Recommended to cap your DEX at around 40 – 60 [For semi-funded players]
For this build, you just add a little DEX, and get the rest of it entirely from your equipments.
For example: Scrolling your overall armor with DEX scrolls provides additional accuracy stats.
This build is probably the most accepted build out of any warrior AP builds.

DEXless
Don’t add any AP into DEX, Leave it at DEX 4. [For well funded players]
For this build, you add all AP points to STR, and ignore DEX.
This will lead to lower accuracy, but higher damage.
Your scrolled equipments will be your primary source for accuracy.
For example: Wielding a maple weapon (provides additional accuracy)
Advantage of DEXless is training on high level monster with low EVA (evasion)
High level monster rewards more EXP but they have more HP.
High STR will defeat them easily. That’s how hardcore DEXless warrior level very fast.
Also, once your character level is on par with monster level, you can hit it easily.


Aran Damage Formula (credits to txdaan)


I have noticed that this was question by someone,
I think it should be added to shed some light as well.
Min damage formula:
STR * 5.0 * Mastery * 0.9 + DEX / 100 * ATT
Max damage formula:
STR * 5.0 + DEX / 100 * ATT


Aran Skill Name Replacement (Old = New)


Polearm Smash = Combo Smash
Polearm Push = Final Charge
Continual Drain = Combo Drain
Polearm Charge = Final Charge
Rolling Spin = Whirlwind
Polearm Toss = Final Toss
Overswing = Over Swing
High Defense = High Class Defense
Pole Arm Finale = Final Blow
Freezing Standing = Freezing Posture
EZ Shield = Combo Barrier
Awakening = Soldier’s Will
High Mastery = Aggression


1st Job: Recollections


Tutorial quests and you should reach Lv10 in no time at all. Once you reach Lv10, click on the Giant Polearm wedged in a glacier next to Lirin in order to advance to the First Job. As usual, you will receive 1 SP and have all your AP reset. And no, you don’t get to use that cool looking polearm. Get your own! ~Credits to Hanabira.Kage
NOTE: LV10 Aran star only with Double Swing and Combat Step skills.
NOTE: The remaining skills are acquired through quest, similarly to 4th Job
Reasoning
10 Combo Ability (for Critical Combo in 3rd Job)
20 Double Swing (primary offense skill in 1st Job, for Triple Swing in 2nd Job)

FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I feel that Aran’s combat step travel distance is the same for both lvl1 and lvl20
Higher level of Combat Step does increase the distance moved even on level ground. However, the difference is much more obvious when you use it off a ledge. (Note: Check out the video at the bottom where an Aran demonstrates on using Combat Step at high platform ledges! Very useful)

How do I get Pole Arm Booster? Which NPC should i talk to? I’m level 22 now
edsland: You need to completed all ARAN REQUIRED quest! Open you quest window, check under ‘available’ or in progress. Finish all the quest under [ARAN] [Required]….
Hanbira.Kage: Make sure that you have completed ALL Aran-exclusive quests given before Lv22 (just check to make sure there are no more [Required] quests). Once you have done so, a light-bulb should appear over your head. Click it and select Accept to be teleported to Francis’s house. I suggest you purchase a Lith Harbour scroll as you’ll have to report back to Tru after speaking with Francis.

Q: “Why do you max Combat Step and not Pole Arm Booster?”
A: Mobility is key to any melee character. Try using step off of a ledge to understand why it can be so useful. As you level up Step, the distance it travels increases. Booster, however, only last longer. You can just recast booster to make it feel like level 20, while you can’t reuse Step while falling off of a ledge. Take note that the level 50 Mount is slower than spam Hax-Stepping on normal ground, let alone El Nath. (The super slide on El Nath snow terrain and Combat-stepping in mid air are disabled in KMS now because its too godly :( )

Q: “Why do you push Combo Ability till the end?”
A: Combo is saved until the end because Pole Arm Booster is a necessity.
Maxing Double Swing adds more DPS (Damage per Second) than combo does.

Q: “Why can’t I put Double Swing on a key? How do I use it?”
A: Double Swing is activated when you double tap your attack key. That means on mob-populated maps like Scorpions, you’ll be pressing your attack key none stop, save for the occasional potion. Carpel Tunnel is fun.

Q: What is Lirin’s Ring and how do I get it?
A: Lirin’s Ring is a “Ring” equip that increases all stats, WA, MA, HP & MP by 3. You get it by reaching Lv50 on an Aran character and speaking to Lirin. In KMS this was purely a time-limited event, after which you could no longer get the ring (KMS offered the ring at Lv70, by the way). Whether MSEA will follow suit is uncertain. The ring is permanent (on KMS. not confirmed for MSEA), and can be transferred between characters on the same account, but cannot be traded to other accounts with or without Scissors of Karma.


2nd Job: Memory


Once you reach Lv30, return to Rien and talk to Lirin. Finish up the chain of “quests” that require you to go back and forth between Lirin and Maha, the spirit sealed in the Giant Pole Arm. Soon enough, Lirin will direct you to the Cave of Mirrors which is all the way North of Rien. Enter the portal and you will find yourself in…Mu Lung? Accept the NPC’s quest collect items dropped by the Asiatic Black Bears which you will find in the next map. Once you’re done, return to the NPC and then to Lirin to (finally) get your well-deserved job advancement. ~Credits to Hanabira.Kage
2nd Job Notes
Now, you will probably notice that Combo Ability and Pole Arm Booster are not in your skill list. Fret not, because they are obtained from quests at Lv13 and Lv22 respectively. I will go through the quests in the Skill Quests section.
Reasoning
Pole Arm Mastery (boost minimum damage to 60%, provides stable damage)
Combo Smash (deals 600% damage at max level, consumes -30 combo)
Triple Swing (allows to deal a 3rd attack after Double Swing)
Combo Drain (allows to recover some health after each attack)
Final Charge (added last, does not deal much damage, good for clumping mobs)

FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
Q: “Does skills that consumes COMBO also consumes MP?”
A: All skills that consumes COMBO does not use MP (such as Combo Smash) However, it resets your combo to zero. For example, you gain 100 combo, and activate a combo skill, your 100 combo becomes zero.

Q: “Why max Combo Smash but not Triple Swing first?”
A: Combo Smash allows you to deal 600% damage against 10 monsters (at max level) It requires at least 30 combo that you have generated after hitting 30 times. It’s very useful when you want to hit a monster located far away from you. Great to clear mobs of monster at Monster Carnival 1 (at level 45) Save SP at level 39 till level 45 to max this skill once you obtain this skill from Lirin.

Q: “Why Final Charge is added last and not max?”
A: Final Charge at max level only increases 2 mob coverage, and you won’t run into more than 10 mobs often. 9 SP can be spent on other skill such as Body Pressure and Combo Drain. It is max last because it won’t help much in training but very useful in mob areas such as Entrance to Spookyworld with many Gallopera. Level 1 Polearm Push to gain some mobility and clumping monsters.


3rd Job: Skirmish


Okay, moving on. There are some things you have to prepare before taking the Third Job Advancement Test. You must have: Maker Skill, 1 Dark Crystal, 3 Diamond Ores, 3 Garnet Ores, Lots of potions. You should have a pop-up appearing over your head once you hit Lv70, telling you to go to Rien and talk to Lirin. Do so, and head over to Maha to accept his quest. Remember the dock where you depart for Lith Harbour? That’s where you’re headed. Prepare for a boss fight…a big, mutant crow. This guy takes quite a while to kill and does a heck of a lot of damage. Once he’s down, return to Maha and then talk to Lirin. Yes, you have to go to the Cave of Mirrors AGAIN. This time, you end up in El Nath. Does the backdrop look familiar to you? It looks like the Test of Wisdom map…but it’s not. Instead you find a Yeti who has a quest for you. Accept it and enter the portal next to it. Oh ho ho! Surely you didn’t think that was all, did you? The Mutant Crow is back and he wants a piece of you. Kick his butt again and collect the Red Jewel that he drops. Give this to the Yeti. Now you have to forge a Red Jewel for Maha. Use the Maker Skill and the other stuff to forge the Jewel. Return to Maha to advance. ~Credits to Hanabira.Kage
Reasoning
20 Critical Combo (obviously)
30 Final Toss (dump points goes here. Seems least useful)
30 Fenrir Phantom (Even more powerful finisher than Combo Smash)
11 Whilrwind (seems like a better version of Final Take, since it costs less SP to hit 12 enemies, and a 1 second stun can give a little breathing room to recast buffs or whatnot)
20 Full Swing – Double Swing /Triple Swing (Is actually one skill instead of two. Powers up staple skills)
20 Smart Knockback (who wouldn’t want to knockback Pink Bean with 10k damage?)
20 Snow Charge (A free 10% bonus damage on non ice immune/resistant is awesome)

FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why max Smart Knockback after Full Swing and Critical combo?
A: I have tested out Aran on monsters where most Adventurer class train. Sadly, Aran damage is not sufficient to knockback monsters to prevent them from casting their magic attacks. Aran can attack fast but their damage are low. To counter this, Smart Knockback is maxed to lower down the knockback requirement, so every hit allows Aran to keep knocking back the monster to prevent it from moving pass you and prevent them from casting spell (this skill also works on bosses).

Apart from that, Final Toss works along with Smart Knockback. If you can’t knockback the monster consistently, you can’t keep the monster in air for long. Every successful knockback keeps the monster afloat in air (this prevents them to cast spell and makes them stationary at 1 place while you happily hit them without them hurting you abit!) Couple with Combo Drain and Body Pressure, you will be using less HP (health potion) compare to the rest of the Adventurer and Knight of Cygnus Class! (except for Cleric)

Q: “Fenrir Phantom vs Combo Smash. Which skill is more powerful?”
A: – Fenrir Phantom is always better than Combo Smash.
Combo Smash : 30 combos : 600% damage
Fenrir Phantom : 100 combos : 800% damage x 2 = 1600% damage

Based on the skill description, Smash is better since
30 combos x 3 = 90 combos
= 600% x 3 = 1800% damage
you need only 90 combos and deal 1800% damage

BUT !!! you havent include the bonus damage from Combo Ability & Critical Combo.

By requiring 100 combos, Fenrir Phantom unlock Combo Ability & Critical Combo true potential, adding a total of 10 WA and +100% critical damage with 60% to activate. Making the damage deal by Fenrir is way more than 1600%. AND since Fenrir is a 2 hits skill, giving it a higher chance to activate combo in one of the hit or even in both hits. And a 2 hits skill also mean a much more stable damage than a one hit skill.

Other Information
Snow Charge is a free 10% damage to non ice monsters, which is a huge plus for a class that mobs like crazy, plus the slow is really nice to have.
The Full Swings power up our staple attacks, which is always nice.
Smart Knockback makes it easier to reduce how often enemies will attack you.
The reason I put spare points for Final Toss is because the damage increase for the enemies in the air seem really minuscule because it requires setting up the enemy for the bonus damage. Now I ask why deal a measly 110% to 12 enemies for a bonus +100% damage (which for Aran multipliers doesn’t seem much at all) when you can kill them faster without Final Toss and/or push them forward with Final Take for a bigger mob?


Aran 1st Job Skill: Recollections

aran polearm combo Combo Ability (Max: Lv10) Passive – Received from Lv13 quest

After every 10 combo counts, your stats will increase. Increases up to 10 times.
The buff disappears when you lose your combo count. Requires Double Swing Lv10.
LV 01 : WA +1, WD + 5, MD + 5, stats increase 1 time
LV 10 : WA + 1, WD + 5, MD + 5, stats increase 10 times
This is what makes the Arans unique. Your WA increases by 1 every 10 hits, for a maximum of +10 at Lv20. Awesome.

aran double swing Double Swing (Max: Lv20)
aran double swing
Press the attack key twice to attack up to 12 monsters two times.
Input command: Attack + Attack
LV 01 : MP -2, 102% Damage
LV 10 : MP -3, 120% Damage
LV 20 : MP -5, 140% Damage
Double Swing is your basic attack as an Aran. Which means two things: First, you will be burning lots of MP. Second, you’ll be beating monsters senseless in no time at all. The damage multiplier listed represents the damage dealt by the second hit, with the first dealing 100%.

aran combat step Combat Step (Max: Lv15)
aran combat step
Press the arrow keys twice to move quickly to another distance. Cannot be used while jumping. Requires Double Swing Lv5.
Input command: <>
Lv1: MP -1, Boost yourself 650 Distance
Lv15: MP -5, Boost yourself 1000 Distance
This is the Arans’ version of the Soul Master’s Soul Rush. Also known as OMG THAT WARRIOR JUST FLEW?!!

aran polearm booster Pole Arm Booster (Max: Lv20) – Received from Lv22 quest
aran polearm booster
By using HP and MP, the attack speed of the polearm temporarily increases. Can only be used when having a polearm equipped. Requires Lv5 Combat Step.
Lv1: HP -29, MP -29, increase attack speed by 1 for 10 seconds
Lv10: HP -20, MP -20, increase attack speed by 1 for 100 seconds
Lv20: HP -10, MP -10, increase attack speed by 3 for 200 seconds
This is the deciding factor when it comes to your training speed. This is what sets you apart from spearmen and DKs. When maxed, this increases your attack speed by 3. That’s Slow(8) -> Fast(5). Take note that attack speed can’t go beyond FASTER.


Aran 2nd Job Skill: Memory

aran polearm mastery Pole Arm Mastery (Max: Lv20) Passive – Received from Lv31 quest
Increases the mastery as well as accuracy. Only applied with a polearm equipped.
Requires Lv3 Triple Swing .
Lv1: 15% Mastery, +1 ACC
Lv10: 35% Mastery, +10 ACC
Lv20: 60% Mastery, +20 ACC
Ahh…the passive skill that everyone loves. Like all warriors, you have to max this. However, you have another reason to do so: Aggression (see 4th Job Skills).

aran triple attack Triple Swing (Max: Lv20)
aran triple attack
Press the attack key three times to attack up to 12 monsters three times.
Requires Lv20 Double Swing.
Input command: (ATTACK) + (ATTACK) + (ATTACK)
Lv1: MP -2, 193% Damage
Lv10: MP -5, 220% Damage
Lv20: MP -7, 250% Damage
This upgrades Double Swing by adding an extra hit at the end. This last hit does the most damage out of all three when maxed. The damage multiplier listed is the damage of the third hit; the total damage dealt is this multiplier added on to Double Swing. Triple Swing will be your main attack combo for 2nd Job…

aran polearm push Final Charge (Max: Lv30) – Received from Lv54 quest
aran polearm push
Push monsters in front of you. You have to use Triple Swing first before using this skill.
Requires Lv20 Triple Swing.
Input command: (Triple Swing) + (LEFT/RIGHT) + (ATTACK)
Lv1: MP -10, 50% Damage, hits up to 5 enemies
Lv15: MP -14, 64% Damage, hits up to 8 enemies
Lv30: MP -20, 90% Damage, hits up to 12 enemies
Once you get Final Charge, this becomes your main attack combo. Final Charge is the Arans’ (nerfed) version of Rush, piling up enemies for you to slice and dice with your chopper-on-a-stick.

aran continual drain Combo Drain (Max: Lv20) – Received from Lv37 quest
aran continual drain
If you are dealing damage to the monster, you recover HP as a part from the damage you deal. 30 COMBO is needed to use this skill.
Requires Lv1 Combo Ability.
Input command: (DOWN) + (DOWN) + (ATTACK)
Lv1: 2% Damage as HP Recovery for 44 seconds
Lv10: 5% Damage as HP Recovery for 80 seconds
Lv20: 8% Damage as HP Recovery for 120 seconds
Combo Drain is a buff which you can cast on yourself when you have at least 30 COMBO. This makes ALL your hits during its duration drain HP from the enemy. This skill is similar to Assassin (2nd Job Thief) Skill Drain (a range skill that drains).

aran polearm smash Combo Smash (Max: Lv20) – Received from Lv45 quest
aran polearm smash
Throw a polearm towards your enemy. 30 COMBO is needed to use this skill.
Requires Lv1 Combo Ability.
Input command: (DOWN) + (LEFT/RIGHT) + (ATTACK)
Lv1: 320% Damage, hits up to 4 enemies
Lv10: 500% Damage, hits up to 6 enemies
Lv20: 600% Damage, hits up to 10 enemies
Combo Smash is your first ranged attack as an Aran. I’m guessing its range is roughly that of the Soul Master’s Soul Blade. That damage multiplier is just ridiculous for a 2nd Job skill. For those who are planning to train on mobs in their mid 40 levels, this skill is a MUST to be MAX! (Use this to clear Monster Carnival monsters (e.g. Rombot/Trojans) faster than any Adventurer Class!) Watch this video tutorial on how to obtain this skill.

aran body pressure Body Pressure (Max: Lv20)
aran body pressure
For a short period of time, you can attack monsters with your own body. The attacked monster has a small probability to get stunned for 5 seconds.
Lv1: MP -40, 25 seconds, 21% chance to stun, 5% Damage
Lv10: MP -31, 70 seconds, 30% chance to stun, 50% Damage
Lv20: MP -20, 120 seconds, 40% chance to stun, 100% Damage
Notes: This buff allows you to deal touch damage on mobs, and adds a chance for Touch Damage Cancel to every attack done in its duration. However, once touch damage is neutralised (blue symbol appears on mob’s head), neither you (to the afflicted mob) nor the afflicted mob can deal touch damage. Therefore, Body Pressure is more of a skill to let you avoid getting hit by touch damage like Dark Sight (except that Dark Sight works on bosses). The buff effect from this skill does not affect boss and mini boss. Affects non-boss monster in Monster Carnival 1.

Great asset for Aran to earn additional combo when bumping into mobs of monster while swinging his Polearm. You can earn/maintain combo while you are focusing on looting an item (when you are not swinging your pole arm) It also save some health (HP) potion when the monster is affected by this Body Pressure buff. Works hand in hand with Combo Drain. You prevent damage and absorb/drain HP from monster (similar to Assassin Drain skill) but this allows you to drain + using your main attacking skill.

You don’t need to bump into the monster to affect monster with Body Pressure Buff Effect (to disable monster from dealing bump damage to you). With body pressure skill activated, your attacks can deliver/channel the body pressure buff to your enemies without using your body to bump into them. Having said that, swinging your polearm with Triple Swing + Bumping into them (you can easily affect them even for Body Pressure Level 1!)

Also, you might want to reconsider activating Body Pressure for some monster such as those who deals magic damage, you want to bump into them to get physical damage instead of magic damage because magic damage deals lots more damage to Aran. This is due to Aran poor magic defense compare to weapon defense.

The Touch Damage Cancel effect prevents the afflicted mob from attacking ANYONE, not only the player that inflicted it. It gets kinda useful for saving people I guess. Apparently, all mobs in Monster Carnival 2 are immune to this.

Aran 3rd Job Advancement Video


Aran 3rd Job Skill: Skirmish

aran full swing Full Swing (Max: Lv20) Passive – Received from Lv70 quest

Lv10: Double Swing MP -8, 180% Damage & Triple Swing MP -10, 310% Damage
Lv20: Double Swing MP – 12, 220% Damage & Triple Swing MP -14, 350% Damage
This skill improves the overall damage of your basic attacks. This is a must-have! Triple Swing’s multiplier represents the damage dealt by the FINAL HIT only. Full Swing turns Double Swing into 2 stabs, making a full Triple Swing a 4-hit combo.

aran critical combo Critical Combo (Max: Lv20) Passive
Default critical damage is 100% and critical rate is 10%. For every 10 combos, your critical damage and critical rate goes up. Requires Lv10 Combo Ability.
Lv1: +1% Critical Damage with a 1% chance, increases 1 time.
Lv10: +5% Critical Damage with a 3% chance, increases 5 times.
Lv20: +10% Critical Damage with a 6% chance, increases 10 times.
This is the second jewel that makes an Aran shine like the heavens.
If this is stacked with Sharp Eye, good ol’ Zakum’s in for a world of pain.
A warrior hitting criticals is just awesome. You start with 100% base damage, and 10% rate.
That means when your combo count is 10, you do +110% criticals, with 16% success rate.
And when your combo count is 100, you do +200% criticals, with 70% success rate.

aran polearm toss Final Toss (Max: Lv30)
aran polearm toss
Toss up to 12 monsters in the air. If you attack monsters in the air, they will receive additional damage. You have to use Triple Swing first before using this skill.
Requires Lv20 Triple Swing.
Input command: Triple Swing + Up + Attack

Lv15: MP -15, 80% Damage, +70% Damage on monsters in air
Lv30: MP -20, 110% Damage, +100% Damage on monsters in air
Simply brutal. Can you imagine hitting a critical on tossed monsters?

aran fenrir phantom Fenrir Phantom (Max: Lv30)
aran fenrir phantom
The soul of the wolf is summoned and merged into the sword to attack monsters twice from a wide range. 100 COMBO is needed to use this skill.
Requires Lv10 Combo Smash.
Input command: (DOWN) + (LEFT/RIGHT) + (ATTACK)
Lv1: 510% Damage, hits 4 enemies
Lv15: 650% Damage, hits 6 enemies
Lv30: 800% Damage, hits 10 enemies
Ouchity-ouch-ouch. In case you’re wondering, the key input is the same as Combo Smash; just that if you input at 100+ COMBO, Fenrir Phantom will be casted instead. Fenrir Phantom hits enemies twice, so 800% damage is multiplied by 2, which leads to a grand total of 1600% damage per monster. If it hits 10 monsters, 1600% multiplied by 10 = 16000% Awesome damage!

aran snow charge Snow Charge (Max: Lv20)
aran snow charge
Adds an ice element to the polearm for a short period of time. The monster’s speed will decrease after being attacked.
Lv1: MP -25, 100% Damage, lasts for 10 seconds, enemy’s speed -21 for 5 seconds
Lv10: MP -29, 105% Damage, lasts for 100 seconds, enemy’s speed -30 for 10 seconds
Lv20: MP -35, 110% Damage, lasts for 200 seconds, enemy’s speed -40 for 20 seconds
Yes, you read that right. Snow Charge is a nerfed version of Ice/Blizzard charge in that it does not freeze but instead slows. Be very careful when fighting mobs like Bain!

aran smart knockback Smart Knockback (Max: Lv20)
aran smart knockback
Lower the damage required to knockback a monster.
Lv1: MP -60, monster’s Knockback Damage -10% for 15 seconds
Lv10: MP -42, monster’s Knockback Damage -40% for 60 seconds
Lv20: MP -30, monster’s Knockback Damage -90% for 120 seconds
This is a self-buff that reduces the damage required to knockback the monster. This means that, at max level, if a mob normally requires 10k damage to KB, only 1k damage will be needed after casting.

aran whirlwind Whirlwind (Max: Lv20)
aran whirlwind
Push away monsters to the left and right side with a powerful wind.
Input command: Up + Up + Attack
Lv1: MP -16, 44% Damage, 38% chance to KB, hits 4 enemies, 1 second stun

Lv20: MP -24, 120% Damage, 95% chance to KB, hits 12 enemies, 1 second stun
This, my friends, is the Arans’ answer to the NL’s Ninja Storm attack. It’s pretty much the same thing, really.


Aran 4th Job Skill: Legend

aran maple warrior Maple Warrior (Max: Lv30)
Increase all players’ stats within a party by certain percentage.
Lv1: MP -10, +1% Base Stats for 30 seconds, 400% Range

Yep, it’s the same old Maple Warrior everybody knows and loves. You’re not going to be summoning any Hellslayers, though.

aran aggressionAggression (Max: Lv30) Passive
Increases the pole arm mastery as well as weapon attack. Requires Lv20 Pole Arm Mastery.
Lv1: 65% Mastery
Lv15: 75% Mastery, WA +5
Lv30: 90% Mastery, WA +10

aran over swing Over Swing (Max: Lv30) Passive
Increases the damage of Double Swing and Triple Swing to the extreme. Requires Lv20 Full Swing.
Lv1: Double Swing MP -14, 112%x2 Damage & Triple Swing MP -16, 186%x2 Damage
Lv15: Double Swing MP -16, 140%x2 Damage & Triple Swing MP -18, 210%x2 Damage
Lv30: Double Swing MP -18, 170%x2 Damage & Triple Swing MP -20, 240%x2 Damage
Extreme? This is WAY over extreme. Your two trusty old pals get yet ANOTHER boost in damage (and MP cost). Happy? You bet I am. Button-mashing happy? Hehehehe. Over Swing turns Double Swing into a 2-hit spin and Triple Swing a 2-hit slash, making a full Triple Swing a 5-hit combo.

aran high class defense High Class Defense (Max: Lv30) Passive
Permanently increases the weapon defense of one’s armor.
Lv1: Damage taken -0.5%
Lv15: Damage taken -7.5%

aran polearm finale Final Blow (Max: Lv30)
Swing your polearm widely to attack fiercely up to 12 monsters. You have to use Triple Swing first before using this skill. Requires Lv20 Triple Swing.
Input command: (Triple Swing) + (DOWN) + (ATTACK)

Nice, now you have two options when it comes to main attack combos. You can rush mobs with Polearm Push, or maul them with this. Polearm Finale extends your reach by approximately 20%. Here comes the Polar Bear!!!

aran tempest Combo Tempest (Max: Lv30)
Turn surrounding monsters into ice that makes them die instantly. It deals four consecutive hits of powerful damage to boss monsters. 200+ COMBO is needed to use this skill. Requires Lv10 Fenrir Phantom.

Lv30: 1500% Damage to boss monsters, hits 4 times, hits up to 15 enemies, 40 seconds of freeze
The description’s saved me some explaining, although I’ve read somewhere that it reduces mob HP to 1 and freezes them but does not kill. In other words, it’s an Ice elemental version of the Paladin’s Sanctuary. HT popsicle, anyone?

aran ez shield Combo Barrier (Max: Lv30)
Grants a buff that makes party members to receive less damage for a limited time. 200+ COMBO is needed to use this skill.
Requires Lv10 Combo Drain.

Enables one to shrug off abnormal conditions. The higher the skill level, the more types of abnormal conditions one can nullify.
Lv1: MP -30, Escape from any abnormal condition, Cooldown time: 10 minutes

Notes – Again, this is exactly the same as the one that Adventurer characters get during 4th Job.


MapleStory Aran Skill Combinations

Double Swing : (ATTACK) + (ATTACK)
Also known as the Double Swing skill. You WILL be spamming this during 1st Job.
You don’t have any other option. It is rather powerful, though.

Triple Swing : (ATTACK) + (ATTACK) + (ATTACK)
Triple Swing skill. This will take over from Double Swing.
Take note that the last hit moves you forward a little bit, so keep some potions handy.

Tips #1 : (Body Pressure) + (Triple Swing)
Using Body Pressure before attacking with Triple Swing .
This makes sure that you deal a little extra damage
when the last hit moves you a little too far forward.
Still, keep some potions handy at all times.

Polearm Push : (Triple Swing) + (LEFT/RIGHT) + (ATTACK)
Triple Swing – Polearm Push combo. At max level, this will
slash 12 enemies 3 times each then slash once more to pile them up.
This will be your main attack combo for mobbing once you get Polearm Push.
Note that you can press to rush toward the left.

Combo Smash : (Triple Swing) + (DOWN) + (LEFT/RIGHT) + (ATTACK)
Triple Swing (or whatever combo) until you get more than 30 COMBO,
then use Combo Smash. This will probably kill off most of the enemies closer to you.

Polearm Toss : (Triple Swing) + (UP) + (ATTACK)
Triple Swing – Polearm Toss combo.
No, you can’t juggle mobs so don’t even think about it.
Just continue whacking before they land to deal maximum damage.

[Tips #2] : Triple Swing + … + Triple Swing + Polearm Toss + Combo Smash
– Triple Swing – Polearm Toss-Combo Smash combo.
Combo Smash’s damage is insane enough as it is.
If you hit mobs whle they’re in the air, the damage will be a lot higher.
Just be quick with it or you may miss your chance to hit them with Combo Smash.

[Polearm Finale aka Polar Bear Paw] : Triple Swing + Down + Attack
– Triple Swing – Polearm Finale combo. As I’ve stated before,
you can choose between Polearm Push and Polearm Finale for your main attack combo.
Yes, Polearm Finale is stronger, but if the mobs aren’t all in one spot,
Polearm Finale won’t hit all of them. In such a case,
you can use Polearm Push to pile them up first, then use Polearm Finale to crush them.

Polearm Push or Polearm Finale?
Upon maxing Polearm Finale, you’ll face this dilemma:
When should I use Polearm Push and when should I use Polearm Finale?
Here’s a general guideline:
1. Use Polearm Push when facing a large group of spaced-out monsters.
2. Use Polearm Push when in situations where monsters WILL push you back such that your next hit won’t connect.
3. Use Polearm Finale when up against monsters that are very close together/on the same spot.

Combat Step
– There’s a reason why Combat Step has the word “Combat” in its name. Utilising Combat Step quickly and efficiently can help you maintain your COMBO counter and also save your skin at times. For example, there are 2 groups of monsters, one in front of you and the other behind. You kill off one group, then turn and Combat Step to the other group and start hitting them. This will keep the COMBO count intact, provided you do it quick enough. Therefore, Combat Step might be a better choice to max compared to Polearm Booster.


MapleStory Aran Videos

KMS – Aran getting Combo Smash Skill Guide

Part 1: How does Aran Combat Step works? The Super Diving Flash Jump

Part 2: How does Aran Combat Step works? Super Rush on Snow

KMST Aran Vs Raika / Lyka
From the video below, Aran uses Smart Knocback Skill (Supportive SKill) to allow Aran to constantly knockback boss monster. Smart Knockback reduces the minimum damage requirement to knockback a monster. This skill is very helpful for party members especially DPS players (damage per second) such as Pirate, Bow Master, Night Lord to spam their attacking skill without having knockback by monster attack! Furthermore, it also saves HP Potions and Cure Potions (for boss monster that cast curse spells)

KMST Aran Vs Papulatus
Here is another video where Aran uses Smart Knockback against Papulatus aka Clock. If they can stop the boss monster from attacking them, this gives them a chance to absorb some HP from the damage dished out from their Double-Triple Swing with the supportive buff of Combo Drain (a supportive skill that recovers X% health base on total amount of damage dealt to the monster)


Aran Mounts


In contrast to the other classes, the Arans get FOUR mounts instead of three.
Like the Knights of Cygnus, the Arans get their first mount at Lv50.
The mounts get an upgrade every 50 levels.
In case you’re wondering, the wolf’s name is Ryu Ho (this may change in MapleSEA).

Lv50 Mount
-150% Speed, 120% Jump-
Requires: 10 Million Mesos, 50 Jr. Yeti Skin, 50 Seal Meat
aran mount level 50 wihout saddlearan mount level 50

Lv100 Mount
-170% Speed, 120% Jump-
Requires: First Mount, 40 Million Mesos, 200 Lime Powder Bottles, 200 Ink Bottles, 200 Butter-toasted Squid
aran mount level 100 without saddlearan mount level 100

Lv150 Mount
-180% Speed, 120% Jump-
aran mount level 150 without saddlearan mount level 150

Lv200 Mount

aran mount level 200 without saddlearan mount level 200

Notes – I would recommend mobbing monsters around your level with the weakest polearm you can find to get the last 2 medals.

Aran Combo Medals Frequently Asked Question


Q: Where can I obtain Combo Medal Quest?
You have to be level 15 to do this quest . When you become level 15 , A light bulb will pop up above your character. Double click the light bulb and follow the steps . You will have to add Combo ability for this quest.

Q: How to rack up high combo like 500+?
A: There are two methods you can choose: Fast or Slow way.
[Fast Method but Consume lots of HP/MP Potions]
The fast method requires you to burns (consume) few-many HP potion (health potion) and MP potion (mana potion). It requires you to equip a low weapon attack polearm and use it against a monster with high health but low avoid/evasion. If the monster has high avoid, you will be getting misses and no combo. Or you could use the conventional method where you train as normal but in an area with mobs (lots of monstesr)
[Slow Method but Takes Long Duration to Complete]
The slow method does not require you to burn ANY potion. It can be done at ANY level! Cool right? Ok, first, head to a place such as Southern Forest 3 (green mushrooms) or any place where you can find many close gap platform. Find a spot for you to poke them (poke means pressing down and hit) you will get to 300+++ in no time. Poke deals a maximum and minimum damage of 1. One green mushroom has 250 HP, poking them 250 times earns 250 combo. Repeat this step on the 2nd mushroom to earn another 250 combo! This method takes some time but if you don’t need to bother about going to potion shop to buy potions.

Q: Which place is best to gain lots of combo ?
A: [Tips] Take off all your wa/str eq, use your lousiest PoleArm to whack while trying to get the medal, or use crouch attack (down + attack). slower but you get your 500 combos
Find a place with decent mob spawn, on a platfrom with a wall. back face the wall,
Visit scorpions at magatia, or truckers and Singapore.
Visit noo noo the snowman (boss in town)
Visit one map before sleepywood town with hordes of curse eyes and evil eyes
Visit perion with alots of dark axe stumps. easily get 800+ combo
Visit Kerning City Caution Falling Down [Hidden Street] Watch video below!

[Slow Method] Aran Combo Expert Medal (50 combo)
This method does not need you to burn any HP nor MP Potion. But it’s really slow to rack up combo. The advantage of this method is you can earn your combo expert medal at a very early stage when you have not much meso to buy those potions.

.
[Fast Method] Aran Combo Master (200 combo) + Combo King (500 combo)
To earn combo king medal using the fast method at “Caution Falling Down”, your character should have at least 26 accuracy (level 18 above) to be able to hit Octopus and Bubbling. Bring along 50 white potions (Recovers 300 HP) and 40 blue potion (Recovers 100 MP). Summon your Snail Roon (free cash pet from Ellinia Fairy) to auto-pot your HP and MP so you can focus on hitting those monsters! Here is a tip! Don’t kill the monster too fast else you have nothing to hit. Leave 1-2 monster behind as backup while waiting for the next spawn to appear, then round up those mob once they spawn.

Q: Can MapleStory characters get combo medal? (e.g. magician, warriors, thief… etc)
No. Only Aran can obtain the medal because this is the only class that have combo counters. Combo Medal Quest are specially for Aran only. Not for Knight of Cygnus Class nor Adventurer Class. Don’t think about creating Aran to just get the medal and transferred it to your main. That will not work because Aran Combo Medals are untradeable. You can’t sell it for lots of meso in freemarket.

Q: Is it possible to still get this medal?
A: No. If you want it you better make an Aran at release. The medals would be out for grabs between 2 weeks time. After that event expires, there will not be any medals given away. So hurry up and grab those medals! [Asiasoft MSEA] Cassandra the NPC rewards these medals. In GMS, it might be a different NPC.

Aran Map Location


To prevent Aran from getting lost from his regular training in the woods, Lirin and her friends have provided Aran with a map of Rien.
Aran MapleStory Rein Map Location

To travel from Rien to Victoria Island and other parts of the land, visit the Penguin Port.
There are various arrows to show you the way to the harbor,
just follow the arrow and you will arrive at the Penguin Port in no time.

Speak to Puro and pay a travelling fee of few hundred mesos and off you go to Victoria Island.

Other Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is the password for the quest ” Eliminating The Puppeteer ” ?
A: The password is “Francis is a genius Puppeteer!”
(Note: Without double quote, with capital letters and exclamation marks.)

Q: What is the password for Final Charge Quest ?
A: The password is “action speaks louder than words” without double quote and dot.

Q: FASTER is the max speed for Aran.. so which means Viper SI (Sped Infusion) won’t have any effect? Also, if Aran equips a FAST weapon like purple surfboard, the speed also will only increase by 1 to FASTER only right?
The span of the various speeds is as follows:
Slower(9), Slow(8), Slow(7), Normal(6), Fast(5), Fast(4), Faster(3), Faster(2)
The Attack Speed +x value stated in the skill description subtracts that particular value from the number listed in the above list. As you can see, Slow, Fast and Faster are all split into 2 separate speeds each. The lower the number, the higher the speed. Purple Surfboard has a speed of Fast(5).
A Polearm Booster (Aran) of at least lv15 will increase the speed by 3. With Booster, the Purple Surfboard’s Attack Speed will be Faster(2), which is the maximum. Even if the weapon’s speed is Fast(4), it will still end up as Faster(2).

Q : How to create an Aran Character?
A : The Same Usual way you use to create Adventurers / Knight of Cygnus, just remember to click on the Aran picture.

Q : Can i switch class from an Adventurer to Aran?
A : Obviously Not.

Q : Will there be a free slot given for Aran just like Knight of Cygnus?
A : Yes.

Q : Does Aran have Bless of Fairy? If yes, how it is calculated then?
A : Yes. It is caclulated based on the current formula which takes the highest character level divided by 10 and then rounded down

Q : Does Aran start on Maple Island?
A : No. It starts off at Rien.

Q : OMG! I start off as a level 200 Aran!
A : Do not be happy too fast. It is meant to show you some of Aran Combo Skills and it is just about Aran past. When you complete the quest, thats the end, u will become level 1 again.

Q: More information about Aran mount?
A: The only mounts Aran can use are the 4 forms of the Wolf mount, Ryu Ho.
Lv50: 150% Speed 120% Jump
Lv100: 170% Speed 120% Jump
Lv150: 180% Speed 120% Jump

    Hey people srsly stop spamming the comment READ th guide properly. GMS maybe 700% on combo smash but MapleSEA has onli 600% Combo Smash. Maxing Toss 1st becuz it adds Dmg and smart kb for higher toss and better kb. Fenir phantom last coz its around the same skill as Smash but nids more combo and higher dmg. There is No Guide on 4th job becuz of Skill Books. Imagine Ayumi cnt be wrting a guide when some ppl have the skill books while some dont.Also stop asking for places to train unless the training guide totally sucks.

    If that is ur base dex then no 90 dex would be regular dex if not high dex becuase i think max dex needed is in the low 80’s. Low dex is like 20-60

  116. Naznuk
    15/03/2010 at 9:45 am

    I would like to suggest that Arans train at the Ariant Pyramid alone(REQUIRES LVL 40) , cause it will give you abt 68’000++ exp everytime you succeed , plus you will get free pots(blue pill, white pill, unagi, elixer, mana elixer, power elixer)sometimes if your lucky you will get 60% scrolls..
    P.S: You will only need to do the “quest” 3 to 5 times to level up, each try will take you abt 10 mins, so abt 30 to 50mins to level up(this is for easy mode)

  117. Gondorien
    07/03/2010 at 9:22 pm

    I read on GameFaqs that Aran is best with 0 dex. So far it’s working pretty good. I get a lot of hits under 20, which is annoying, but I get enough power hits to still allow me to kill faster than if I put points in dex.

    May I ask where to get mount?The quest said Aqua Road, And there’s alot of Aqua Road.. but which one -_-(Note: I am new to maple)

    In aqua road on the side about 3/4 maps left of the Aqaurium (aqua road town) swim to the top and there is a ladder with a whale climb it and you will meet the eskimo girl (who name i dont remember) who will tell you to get 50 seal meats which you can get from sparkers and freezers and vitamins from kenta who lives in the Aqaurium at the zoo which is found inside of the biulding and pay him 10million mesos and he will give you some Go back to the eskimo girl and she will make you some wolf food then you have to hurry and go back to Rein becuase i think the food expires and go 3 maps left of boat on Rein and the is a portal that is up above you go there and talk to the pengiun and he gives you the wolf cub. Then you get the second part of the quest which actually allows you to ride the wolf try no to click thru it so fast this time.

    @CyanTailed having four less pionts in final charge (21-4 = 17) wont really reduce the effetive ness of finalcharge cause it would still hit 9 mobs at lvl 17

    9 would seem to be good enough, but for the most effective Aran training, you usually get mobs of 10 or more eg. truckers, mp3, homunculous. So you really would want to be able to hit 12 with it so you can gather them all in one spot rather than having left over monsters behind you after pushing only 9 in front of you.

    I’m trying for the combo king medal and i’m always close to 300 but always lose it when i have about 270 combos.

    that is a fail.. you should monster carni at lvl 35+ and get max trojans summoned, by then you can hit them all. i hit 4,180 at lvl 21… (combos..) and i hit 27k later on? i just grinded where good mobs are, like Sahal 2 (hint hint).

    Umm, I found a bad build that told me to max out polearm booster, and I didn’t max out combo step. When can I add points to it? Is there a useless skill that I don’t need to add points to?

    Maybe put less points in final charge cause it not that great damage and is only used to clump mobs and is pretty useful even at lvl1

    I would really try to max final charge. its used a lot later on. you would really regret not maxing it. not maxing out combo step would probably be a better choice. as long as you have a lot of points in it, you should be okay. otherwise you can always buy the sp reset in cash shop or just wait til 3rd job. you dont need any points in hurricane, so people usually max out booster anyway. so just leave it and max combo step at the end of 3rd job.

    Level 71, add 1 point each into Fenrir Phantom, Critical, and Final Toss. Make sure that people get Booster to level 15 and to max Drain. Add the requirements for the level 150 mount (it was posted by someone already). Explain the skill books, I don’t understand why there is a 10, 20, and 30 book (max level for skill?). Please be more specific about the training spots or something because people want to know what the best place to train is at their level. Or at least rank or use pros and cons in the training spots. Normal attacks hit 4 monsters (I beleive). Attacks don’t disperse evenly on mobs 600 damage on one monster does not equal 100 damage on six monsters. There is some formula but I have yet to find it.

    In GMS, you can choose your skin color just like any other character creation. For DEX questions, just give a link to an accuracy calculator and minimum acc needed (~142). HP or MP shouldn’t really be mentioned in the cons. In GMS there is a trick to make Combat Step faster than a mount or flash jump if you set it on a macro by itself and jump right before the Step ends (continues the Step in the air). I’ll continue later.

    Just saying because this is really starting to get on my nerves a bit,but most people in the game are interested in the information of the skill COMBO SMASH, however there have been many incidents (23 that ive counted so far) where when i mention 700% dmg when maxed, rather then believeing me after i have maxed it they usually respond “Lol your such a lying noob, check the internet sites for aran skills they say (600%)” usually its an all out fight with them after that, and repeat the same statement,…..in a more aggresive manner,as thier choice of words escalate with anger. i would really appreciate if there was a way to change the listed damage of maxed Combo Smash listed under FAQs,Why Max Smash Before Triple Swing. I am aware maybe im misunderstanding or something but if im right and thats where all these people are making this argyment from plz help.

    Uhhr, one of the cons are: Damage is spread among mobs. Unlike Warriors, if Slash blast does 600 damage to one monster, then Slash Blast will do ~600 damage to each monster in a mob of 6/whatever. However for Arans, If you do 600 with double/triple attack to one monster, then you will do ~100 damage to each monster in a mob of 6.

    I have done the “2nd Informant Gig” before i Job Advance,is that mean that i can’t get the skill?

    2nd Informant Gig

    [Required] 2nd Informant Gig (over Lv18 Aran) 1
    Quest:
    I have reached Level 18, which means Tru will give me my second gig as an informant. I better head over to Lith Harbor right now and meet Tru.

    Tru:
    Oh, good thing you’re here. I have a good gig waiting fo you. This time, it took place at the forest of the fairies in Ellinia, and… it’s a bit similar to the last one. It has to do with the violent Green Mushrooms.

    The one that watches over the forest, Rowen the Fairy, should know a thing or two why Green Mushroom has suddenly turn violent. Do you know anything about those fairies? Were there any fairies during your heyday? There’s a treasure trove of interesting information that could have been dug from you, if you only didn’t lose all your memory…

    In any case, I want you to head over to Ellinia and meet Rowen the Fairy, then ask for information on Green Mushroom. This s your second gig as an informant.

    (QUEST ACCEPTED) Ellinia is located a bit more east of Henesys. Eh? Are you looking for a cab coupon again? Not this time! If I keep giving you one, then I’ll be broke In no time! Do what you have to do to get there, but no more cab coupons!

    Summary
    The second one involves the suddenly-violent Green Mushroom. Seems quite similar to that of the first one. I better head over to Ellinia and meet with Rowen me Fairy to discuss the cause of Green Mushrooms distress.

    Procedure
    1. Talk to Rowen the Fairy located in Ellinia (see mini map below)

    Rowen The Fairy
    (QUEST COMPLETED) What can I do for you? I’ve been getting headaches over Dejected Green Mushrooms these days. what? You are asking if I know why Green Mushrooms have been acting violent lately? (REWARD: 400 EXP)
    Green Mushrooms

    [Required] Green Mushrooms (over Lv18 Aran) 1
    Quest:
    This is my second gig as an informant, and I need to ask Rowen the Fairy of Ellinia why Green Mushroom have turned aggressive in general?

    Rowen The Fairy
    I don’t know how you found that out, but that’s absolutely correct. Lately, the Green Mushrooms from the southern forest have been getting more and more violent, which I see as red flags. They have gotten really dark these days…

    But from what I hear, this is occurring in many places at an alarming rate, so I looked into the matter, and it turns out It had to do with the puppet they’re carrying. A puppet,.? This is really getting bizarre by the day.

    I don’t know if those rumors are true or not, but it may have to do with the recent case of the Green Mushrooms. I don’t know why you’re asking me for the reason behind me sudden violence of Green Mushroom, but if you’re just as intrigued as I am, then do you want to help me look into this matter?

    I wanted to see if it really is because of the puppets… so I want you to eliminate 25 Dejected Green Mushrooms and find Dejected Green Mushrooms puppet if you can.

    (QUEST ACCEPTED) Thank you. Green Mushroom can be found at Dungeon, Southern Forest iii in The Forest South of Ellinia. You can enter through the tree hole where Talking Tree stands in front of it. so it wouldn’t be too hard to find. Thanks in advance.

    Summary
    Rowen the Fairy stated that shes been hearing a lot of monsters gone wild, and they all seem to have something in common, that being a puppet. Maybe this one might be included as well, so I better eliminate Dejected Green Mushroom, and ill happen to get my hand on a Green Mushroom puppet, I must return it to her.

    Procedure
    1. Defeat 25 Dejected Green Mushrooms in Tree Dungeon
    2. Obtain a Devastated

    }
    Q: Why do you add body pressure last?
    Because is the least important :D
    Combo Drain is much more useful compare to Body Pressure as it allows you to be near potless (no need to carry many potions while training)
    You wouldn’t want to be pure defensive since you will train slower.
    The more offensive skills you have for disposal , the faster you train.
    Summary: You can buy potion to heal you but you can’t buy damage (not talking about warrior pills/onyx apple)

    tis not true! ima level 90 aran and i use body pressure way more then drain (both maxed) i think the least important is the polearm rush thingy

    Hey they mean final charge :D … if u look below u see it says add final charge =3 and it says total 4 so it HAS to be what she means …i was wondering the same but i saw that…hope it helps :D

  199. 22/12/2009 at 2:09 am

    Q: After maxing triple swing instead of getting up combo drain can u just save sp or get up body pressure because it doesn’t really help me when training.

    It depends on how you train. If you train on monsters that deals lots of damage to you (which most people wouldnt want that), then add Body Pressure to cast physical-touch damage effect on monster to avoid them dealing bump damage to you. To further enhance Aran survivability, add Combo Drain after Body Pressure.

    For me, if I were to play Aran, my skill build will have mostly offensive skills first because I will be training at Monster Carnival 1 from level 30 to level 50. The monsters in Monster Carnival 1 battle room drops many health, mana and all-cure potion. You can spam all you offensive skills and bump into monsters as much as you want without worrying of insufficient mana (MP)

    You don’t lose meso buying potion, but you won’t gain meso either. But you can sell Spiegelman Necklace for lots of meso that can reach up to 1 million meso if it has good stats (The necklace can be traded for Maple Coins via Spigelman NPC, Maple Coins are obtain from monster drops in Monster carnival 1)

    Ian Tung :

    Umm…can anyone tell me whr shud a lvl 60 aran train at?

    The guide above has a list of training spots. Look again :D

    Usually at Level 60, most players would go to Ghost Ship 1,2,3 to train. Depending on your damage, try each monster in the ghost ship and see which 1 is easier for you to kill. Most monster in Ghost Ship give good exp.

  201. 22/12/2009 at 2:03 am

    hemjak :

    what skill are you talking about called “rush” that you add at level 54?

    Final Charge (Aran 2nd Job Skill) allows Aran to rush/push monster to one corner. This skill is same as Adventurer: 4th Job Warrior Skill (Rush)

    Q: Why do you add body pressure last?

    Because is the least important :D

    Combo Drain is much more useful compare to Body Pressure as it allows you to be near potless (no need to carry many potions while training)

    You wouldn’t want to be pure defensive since you will train slower.

    The more offensive skills you have for disposal , the faster you train.

    Summary: You can buy potion to heal you but you can’t buy damage (not talking about warrior pills/onyx apple)

    I dont get it…I did my own skill build for my future Aran and I ended up with all skills maxed and Polearm Booster 17/20, and not 16/20. Check my build I please tell me where is the math mistake:
    10 – Double Swing (1/20) +111 – Double Swing (4/20) +312 – Double Swing (7/20) +313 – Double Swing (10/20) +314 – Double Swing (13/20) +315 – Double Swing (16/20) +316 – Double Swing (19/20) +317 – Double Swing (20/20) +1 Save (2) +218 – Save (5) +319 – Save (8) +320 – Save (11) +321 – Save (14) +322 – Polearm Booster (16/20) +2 Combat Step (1/15) +123 – Combat Step (4/15) +324 – Combat Step (7/15) +325 – Combat Step (11/15) +326 – Combat Step (14/15) +327 – Combat Step (15/15) +1 Combo Ability (2/10) +228 – Combo Ability (5/10) +329 – Combo Ability (8/10) +330 – Combo Ability (10/10) +2 Polearm Booster (17/20) +1

    At lvl 25 you went from Combat Step(7/15) to Combat Step(11/15) instead of (10/15)

    @help: Make sure you’ve completed the quest at Lv63. You have to enter Elin Forest to obtain it. If you HAVE “completed” it, make sure you have already entered the portal above Athena Pierce in Elin Forest.

    @T0G0dly4Moms: When attacking a certain number of enemies, your damage per hit is split among the enemies unevenly and each value is multiplied by a number. This number increases with the number of enemies hit. Therefore, the total damage dealt increases when attacking large groups of enemies. The more enemies there are, the higher the total damage will be.

  224. Hanabira.Kage
    16/12/2009 at 3:25 am

    @T0G0dly4Moms: Yes, you deal less damage per hit when mobbing. However, the TOTAL damage is boosted proportional to the number of targets hit.

    @Anonymous: It appears to be around 600%. The skill description may be erroneous. In MapleSEA, the description also states 700% damage.

  225. Anonymous
    15/12/2009 at 11:30 pm

    In your guide, your constantly refer to Combo Smash as having 600% damage at maxed level. As per GMS currently, at max level, the skill description for Combo Smash says 700% damage to 10 monsters at level 20. Just wanted to let you know so you can verify and possibly change the info on the guide.

    @Pranay: The 3+ COMBO was my typo (Ayumilove borrowed my guide). The guide I’m maintaining on the Asiasoft forums has had this mistake corrected. As for the whole Combo thing in the Cons section, Ayumilove did not make a mistake. What she meant was that if you stop attacking for a short while, your combo counter will be reset to 0 regardless of how much you had.
    Arans already do rather decent damage with a low combo count. Getting it up to 100 just makes their damage that much godlier (especially once you max out Critical Combo).

    @Anonymous: You have to do all Aran-exclusive quests prior to the Lv22 quest in order to unlock the Lv22 quest, which nets you Pole Arm Booster.

    @Enquiree: Pole Arm Booster increases attack speed according to the number and not the attack speed rank’s name. Maple Karstan, which has an attack speed of Normal(6), will be boosted to Faster(3). Answering your question, Timeless Diesra has a DPS that is much too low compared to Purple Surfing Board. However, the Timeless Diesra can be much better in the long run when its Item Level is maxed out and it is scrolled fully.

    Thanks, but I think you made an error in your last reply to my question (Shouldnt Timeless Diesra be Normal6 only?)

    To rephrase my question, with reference to the FAQ on att speed, if both weps (Timeless Diesra and Purple Surfing Board) are applied with booster, TD would be Normal (6) and PSB would be Faster (2). Therefore which would have a higher DPS?

  256. Hunterrox

    Enquiree :
    Regarding the DPS, will a Timeless Diesra(WA 114, Slower) deal more damage than a Purple Surfing Board (WA 96-103, Fast)?

    yes, you deal more damage with Timeless Diesra (you need at least polearm level 15 to gain -3 speed) So your timeless becomes slower > slow > normal > fast

    Thanks alot!! So does this mean that the booster increases speed by the name rating and not the number? (Because slow has two ratings (7) and (8))

    @jaysonn: 16000% is correct as Fenrir Phantom hits a maximum of 10 enemies at a time. The 2 hits makes the 800% multiplier 1600%, and hitting 10 enemies with it makes the total 16000%.

    Enquiree :

    Regarding the DPS, will a Timeless Diesra(WA 114, Slower) deal more damage than a Purple Surfing Board (WA 96-103, Fast)?

    yes, you deal more damage with Timeless Diesra (you need at least polearm level 15 to gain -3 speed) So your timeless becomes slower > slow > normal > fast

    Can any 1 tell me how to get that ‘’steel polearm”?

    Thank u;)

    its obtained from aran paperbox, you need to stay online for at least 1 hour after receiving the quest, then you obtain the maha charm. Then a light bulb appears above your head, double click on it then talk to cassandra. she ask some funny questions, you answered correctly, you receive aran paperbox. double click on it and you get random reward. one of the reward is steel polearm, (tradeable item) can be sold about 1.5 – 3 million meso

    are the mounts worth the 10mil? or are they pretty useless to arans?

    for the combo king, there’s another method, go over the shanghai map 2, and wait for giant centipede, keep hitting it and you should get about 600 combo max. suitable for level 18-20 at the expense of hp pot around 100-150. but it’s a guarantee if no one disturbs you hitting it

    27/11/2009 at 2:00 am

    @Pranay: Not possible. You MUST get the first mount to get the second, then the third and fourth. The first mount costs 10 Million mesos and the second costs 40 Million mesos. I have no idea about the 3rd and 4th mounts though. What I DO know is that the 4th mount’s quest involves a wolf NPC at Mu Lung (which is the mount itself).

  301. Pranay
    26/11/2009 at 4:33 pm

    The prices for mounts are way too high, is it possible to skip the first mount and get the 2nd mount, and do u have to pay mesos for the other mounts??

  302. 26/11/2009 at 3:05 pm

    Hanabira.Kage :

    Oh yes, I forgot to mention. The Touch Damage Cancel effect prevents the afflicted mob from attacking ANYONE, not only the player that inflicted it. It gets kinda useful for saving people I guess. Apparently, all mobs in Monster Carnival 2 are immune to this.

    Thanks for the update! I’ll add into the skill description now :D

    26/11/2009 at 7:02 am

    This is what I just found out after (finally) getting Body Pressure myself. When Body Pressure is in effect, all attacks performed will have a chance to Touch Damage Cancel. Touch Damage Cancel works both ways; the afflicted mob can’t deal touch damage on you and neither can you deal touch damage to the afflicted mob.

    @zQAranQz: If you’re unable to take the Lv70 Full Swing quest (from lightbulb), you probably missed the hidden Lv63 quest. This quest only appears upon entering Elin Forest at or after Lv63.

    @Pranay: It should work. My Aran has 50 DEX, and I don’t really use that much money. I also did some calculations; with Lirin’s Ring and Combo King Medal, I will have over 190 Accuracy after Lv100 (or whenever I get Zakum Helmet/Scarlion Hat) without scrolling any equipment for anything better than NPC 100% scrolls.

    well its the skill description,
    overswing 170% is much powerful than full swing (220%) because overswing has 2x hits, which makes 170% x 2 = 340%

    Hey, is 15m enough to support a low dex aran? Capping at 50 or 60.

    It depends on the server you are playing.
    if you play on a server where scrolls and scrolled equipments are cheap, then it takes less funds to get started. If you start on a new server where there are very little people, items gets more expensive.

    7+3 = 10, not 11. Therefore it’s only Lv16 and not 17.
