--Wy become a magician.--


Once a Magician gets a high level it gets incredible strong, and he/she learns
kick ass skills (even exp increase at 70+). Its fast lvling and makes nice money :)
I think its the nicest class of all.

__________________________________________________ ___________________

--MapleIsland guide.--


When you make your character make sure you put the right status
points. This is what you will need:

Str. 4 or 5
Dex. 4 or 5
Int. doesnt matter
Luk. doesnt matter

For a magician you dont need any Strenght or Dexterity becouse you
wont be fighting with a sword, dagger etc.

Make your character, and go to the green snails on maple island.
Fight here until your level 8 and do the quest for green chair only,
becouse other quest will be a waste of your time.
When your 8 you are high enough to become a Magician and you will
probably have enough money to buy your ticket to
Victoria Island (150 mesos) and for the cab to ellinia.(100mesos)

__________________________________________________ ___________________

--Status.--

Your Luk will be based on your level; your level +3 luk so when your
level 10 you need to have 13 luk. You will need Luk so you can equip
Magician armors and weapons.
All points that dont go to Luk will go to Int. Practically each level
4 Int and 1 Luk. You will need Int for a high magical Attack.

__________________________________________________ ___________________

--Skill Tree 1.--

This is the most important of a magician; the basic skills. When you
will be high level you will need much mp but a high attack to.

This build is the 'normal' recommended build, it's not really hard but still good:

lvl 08 => +1 Energy Bolt
lvl 09 => +3 Mp recovery
lvl 10 => +2 Mp recovery / +1 Mp increase
lvl 11 => +3 Mp increase
lvl 12 => +3 Mp increase
lvl 13 => +3 Mp increase (Max)
lvl 14 => +3 Mp recovery
lvl 15 => +3 Mp recovery
lvl 16 => +3 Mp recovery
lvl 17 => +2 Mp recovery (MAX) / +1 Magic Claw
lvl 18 => +3 Magic Claw
lvl 19 => +3 Magic Claw
lvl 20 => +3 Magic Claw
lvl 21 => +3 Magic Claw
lvl 22 => +3 Magic Claw
lvl 23 => +3 Magic Claw
lvl 24 => +1 Magic Claw (MAX) / +2 Magic guard
lvl 25 => +3 Magic guard
lvl 26 => +3 Magic guard
lvl 27 => +3 Magic guard
lvl 28 => +3 Magic guard
lvl 29 => +3 Magic guard
lvl 30 => +3 Magic guard (MAX)

Energie bolt will be your main attack till a level of around 18. It is
very important you keep this skill at 1! It is VERY important you will
max mp increase as soon as possible. Here for you will need 5 mp
recovery so that you will have to do that first.
Magic claw will be your main attack when your level 18 becouse than
it will do more damage than Energie bolt. You will need magic guard
max when your high level and going to fight monsters that will
hit 80% of your hp or even more! Dont put any skill point to Magic
Armor since your becoming a cleric and you dont need it.


__________________________________________________ ___________________

--Skill Tree 2.--

An even better, but much more difficult to level build would be:

lvl 08 => +1 Mp recovery
lvl 09 => +3 Mp recovery
lvl 10 => +1 Mp recovery / +2 Mp increase
lvl 11 => +3 Mp increase
lvl 12 => +3 Mp increase
lvl 13 => +2 Mp increase (Max 10) / +1 Energy bolt
lvl 14 => +3 Mp recovery
lvl 15 => +3 Mp recovery
lvl 16 => +3 Mp recovery
lvl 17 => +2 Mp recovery (MAX 16) / +1 Magic Claw
lvl 18 => +3 Magic Claw
lvl 19 => +3 Magic Claw
lvl 20 => +3 Magic Claw
lvl 21 => +3 Magic Claw
lvl 22 => +3 Magic Claw
lvl 23 => +3 Magic Claw
lvl 24 => +1 Magic Claw (MAX 20) / +2 Magic guard
lvl 25 => +3 Magic guard
lvl 26 => +3 Magic guard
lvl 27 => +3 Magic guard
lvl 28 => +3 Magic guard
lvl 29 => +3 Magic guard
lvl 30 => +3 Magic guard (MAX 20)

The downside of this build is that you wont have a magic attack til level 14,
on the other hand you will have a little more mp.

__________________________________________________ _____________________

--Training Place.--

lvl 8-9 hit blue and green snails, when your on low mana just fight with sword.
lvl 10-18 slime tree in ellinia.(tree that grew)
lvl 19-22 pig beach(its a hidden-street) ask people to take you there
lvl 23-30 party quest is the fastest way for exp and money if you dont
want to party quest go kill horned mushrooms in ant tunnel 1 lvl 25+

__________________________________________________ _____________________

--Become CLERIC.--

Now you are 30 and ready to go get the advancement. Revisit Grendal the Old
and he will say you have become really strong. He will give you a letter to
take to the job instructer in Victoria Road: Forest North of Ellinia. There
he will transport you into a dungeon. Buy potions before you enter it
because the monsters all take 2 magic claws to kill and they hurt you around
80 damage. You have to collect 30 dark marbles. When you are done climb to
the top of the dungeon and talk to the guy. He will give you proof of hero
and you must show that to Grendal. He will now give you the option to choose
your next job.


__________________________________________________ ______________________

--Equipment.--

I would recommend not to buy each lvl that you can buy new armor's that'll
save you very much mesos. I think the best are: all lvl 10 equipment, the
level 18~20 and lvl 33. I recommend to do all the quest witch give good
items like gloves and shoes.


__________________________________________________ ______________________
__________________________________________________ ______________________

-------------------------Now that your a CLERIC-------------------------
__________________________________________________ ______________________
__________________________________________________ ______________________


--Status.--

Still keep your Luk; Level +3 and the rest into Int, i can say that
you better put nothing into hp or mp.

__________________________________________________ _______________________

--Training place, Solo.--

lvl 32~34 train in ant tunnel 1 since you have fast spawn rate here.
The best will be 1 hit with magic claw and maybe 1 heal to finish tham.

lvl 35~51 do the ludibrium party quest whitch will give you the fast exp.
Else you can kill Chronos or Master chronos and maybe get some shield :)

lvl 52~60 ZOMBIE LUMPINS PWN! you can get very fast lvls if you train in the zombie
lumpin tree near ellinia. At lvl 55 i get around 1 lvl each 2/3 hours here! And the dolls sell nice to.

Specific map: Hidden Street: Tree Dungeon, Monkey Forest II

lvl 51~70 You can kill zombies with your heal, wraith will be even better.

lvl 60~70 Deeper into toy factory, Soul teddy's, Death Teddys


__________________________________________________ _______________________

--Training place, Party.--

lvl 32~34 train in ant tunnel 1 since you have fast spawn rate here.

The best will be 1 hit with magic claw and maybe 1 heal to finish them.
lvl 35~51 do the ludibrium party quest whitch will give you the fastest exp.

Since every party needs a cleric, it will be not to hard to find your
self a party.

lvl 52~60 Zombie lumpins or Wraith

lvl 60~70 Maybe party at maci or cargo

(not really much experience in party training places)

__________________________________________________ _______________________

--Equipment.--

Since your a cleric and heal yourself you will need the best weapon
availeble but for the armor a would skip some parts like the
chaos/(female lvl 33 armor) i dunno name lolz.

__________________________________________________ _______________________

--About Holy Arrow.--

Personaly i think holy arrow is a waste of skill points, althought there might be people who
like it and want to learn it. I think the skill points can better go to other skills,
like bless and invinceble.
You can train with holy arrow, but you will train with heal faster.
Holy arrow is more for like having some fun sometimes but if you wanna be strong,
dont spend any skill points but the once you got left.
So i have in all my cleric guides holy arrow left at 11 at the end.

This is my personal opinion, feel free to ignore it :)


__________________________________________________ _______________________

--Become Priest.--

When your lvl 70, go to your instructor in El Nath, she will send you to
grandel where you got the 1st and 2nd job to. Afer you talked to him, make
sure you have enough potions and go to zumbie lumpins, continue a couple maps
to the right until you see a portal in the right upper corner. Go in there and
you will have to fight a small version of grandel and he sommons tauromacki's.
After you killed him go to grandel and than go back to El Nath. After you talked
to your job instructor in El Nath you will need 1 dark crystal (you need more if
you awnser questions wrong). Go to sharp cliff II and enter a door up there, here you
will need to awnser question, thay are veryhard and make sure you have hidden-street open.
now go back to your instructor and he will reward you will a skill point.


__________________________________________________ ______________________

-------------------------Now that your a Priest-------------------------

lvl 104 => +2 Doom (max 30) / +1 Summon Dragon
lvl 105 => +3 Summon Dragon
lvl 106 => +3 Summon Dragon

lvl 117 => +3 Mystic door
lvl 118 => +3 Mystic door
lvl 119 => +3 Mystic door
lvl 120 => +3 Mystic door (max 20)

This build is kinda variable, you can choose to max doom or summon dragon first before
you max elemental resistence, or you could choose to max shining ray instead of
maxing summon dragon or doom. Mystic door is also not really required. This all
depends on your personal opinion in how far you want to be a party priest or a solo priest.

(This build is hardcore party priest, i do not recommend it since its crap levelling without party.)


If i would want to be somewhere between party/solo priest I would personaly do the next:
in short:
- Holy symbol (max)
- Shining ray (max)
- Dispel (max)
- Elemental (resisance max)
- Summon Dragon
- Doom
- Rest of skill points (if you have any left) on mystic door.

(If you want more detailed information about this you can send me a mail on GoldenCrowed@gmail.com)
