    Icon2 Fionah's Guide To Dragon Mastery (Work In Progress)

    LAST EDITED: 4.11.10 @ 02:35PM EDT

    Introduction
    No longer maintained, I quit MS.


    Hiya everyone, my name is Kathy. I've played MapleStory since the betas and am currently leveling my Evan: BloodHimeh on Broa. I plan to use my leveling experience to help out others. I'm going to help you level, gear, and take care of Mir. This guide, and the discussion thread accompanying it, is intended to be a compendium of collected community wisdom regarding Evans and Mir. This is, however, a field of ongoing discovery and development, so this guide should be considered a work in progress.

    The primary audience for this guide is Party Buff-spec'd Evans (generally meaning maxing magical resistance and/or others) who party primarily (or are interested in PQs) for PvE oriented PQ content. Some of what's contained herein may touch on soloing, farming, and PvP, but the primary focus will be "serious" party RDPS lol.

    Much of Evan Gearing/SP spec'ing is an art rather than science, and as a result a lot of the information contained herein will be based on my own more personal opinions. I will try to be as fair as possible in relating the opinions of others. Nonetheless, if you disagree with me, post in this thread and I'll try to quote and include as many sensible viewpoints as possible. Moreover, I will continue to update this guide as new information comes up.

    Evan's Pros & Cons

    There are countless ingredients that make up the human body and mind, like all the components that make up me as an individual with my own personality. Sure, I have a face and voice to distinguish myself from others, but my thoughts and memories are unique only to me, and I carry a sense of my own destiny. Each of those things are just a small part of it. I collect information to use in my own way. All of that blends to create a mixture that forms me and gives rise to my conscience.

    Ability Point Allocation

    Like another other Mage, Evans follow the same rules. INT and LUK are your best friends. The normal stat ratio is LUK = LvL+3 and the rest go into INT. Should you mess up on one of these stats, your Evan will be RUINED FOR EVER. Unless you go and spend nx to reset it lol. Upon character selection stats are already done for you and will continue to be automatically allocated until you reach your 1st growth (which is correct me if I'm wrong level 12). Ignore STR/DEX/HP/MP you will never add to these unless you want to specifically weaken your magical attacks. note to self: add hp/mp washing in guide

    The Dragon Master Legend
    Quote Originally Posted by -Hime-
    A long time ago there lived a heroic Magician named Freud. Mighty even by the standards of Maple World, he delved into many different areas of magical research, but chief among his interests was the study of the Onyx Dragons. His greatest desire was to find a way for humans and dragons to live together in peace. After many years of study and exploration, this desire would bring him before the greatest of Onyx Dragons, the Dragon King, Afrien.

    Now Afrien, as King of the Onyx Dragons was the greatest of his kind. Despite their many differences, Afrien loved humans as he loved all life. When Freud appeared before him, he found a kindred spirit, a human who shared his philosophical love for all lifeforms. Not wishing to miss out on this opportunity, Magician and Dragon pledged to each other a Spirit Pact of mutual defense and understanding. They bound themselves together using many powerful rituals and spells, creating the first Spirit Pact, the forerunner of the many that would come later. Under the pact, two spirits would become one and the resulting bond would be unbreakable, even lasting past death.

    The benefits of the Spirit Pact were many and powerful. Magician and Dragon nurtured each other, each becoming stronger together than they ever could have apart. Together they ushered in an era of peace and justice, shining all the more brightly for the brief length of time that it lasted. It was shattered when a great evil entered Maple World. We know him today as the Black Mage. When the Black Mage’s discovered the incredible power of the Onyx Dragons, he coveted it for himself. One night while Freud was away, the Black Mage granted himself an audience with the great Onyx Dragon King.

    Unable to understand the source of the Onyx Dragon’s great power, the Black Mage asked Afrien to join him and betray Freud and the humans he had in his care. He promised the King that by working together they could become more powerful than anyone could imagine. Afrien tried to explain that the source of the Onyx Dragon’s power was the love and trust that came from the Spirit Pact. He was incapable of betraying his friend, nor would he have broken the pact even if he was capable of it. Infuriated, the Black Mage vowed that if the Onyx Dragon would not join him, he would be destroyed.

    The Black Mage fumed for a time, researching some way to destroy the Spirit Pact and defeat the Dragon King and his friend. Eventually he concluded that if he could lock Freud in ice forever, this might break the Pact. He launched a devastating attack on the pair, trying to maneuver them into a position where he could launch his horrible curse at Freud. After a fierce struggle, the Black Mage succeeded and managed to cast his devastating spell at Freud.

    He hadn’t reckoned with the Onyx Dragon’s loyalty. When the Black Mage cast his devastating curse at Freud, Afrien nobly threw himself in front of his friend, taking the curse that had been meant for him. The great Dragon was encased in ice. Black Mage had succeeded. The Spirit Pact was broken. His success was not complete, though. Afrien had left behind a great Dragon and so long as the egg existed, there was always a chance that a future hero might come along that could re-establish the Spirit Pact. Freud eventually escaped with dragon egg, determined to hid it in a place where it might eventually be found. His friend had sacrificed himself for Freud, Freud could do no less for Afrien.

    Thus was the Dragon egg hidden away, waiting for a hero with a strong spirit would be able to recreate the Spirit Pact. Now in the Maple World of today, that time has come again. A humble soul, the child of a pig farmer, will reforge old bonds and re-establish the Spirit Pact. The Onyx Dragon will rise again at the side of a new hero who will use that power to fight for peace and justice!

    good guide. there is another style of play is master lightning blade at lvl 35 and because you wont be needing magic guard, you will be doing mushroom castle which gives you lots of experience. lightning blade takes the place of magic missle. at lvl 35, you will be doing 500-700 with magic missle, and 1000-1800 dmg on the helmet pepe's in the mush castle.

    That first image of pros/cons either needs to be editted or removed. Grammar is one thing, a Gaming Keyboard is definitely NOT required for Evans, and only 1 skill has a 20 Second cooldown, and that is Dark Fog, not most.
    Also, you can max both Soul and Missile in the first Growth, dunno why you have Soul listed as only 19.
    Last thing, considering the Magic formula, adding LUK and upgrading your gear is not as efficient as going LUKless...it really is the optimal choice, especially with all the statless EWands and such.
    Other than that, seems pretty nice, I kind of like all the images and stuff.

    Technically magic shield has a 20 sec cooldown (since after you use it there is only 20 seconds left on the cooldown)

    Magic shield seems like a pretty good skill, 30% absorbed dmg for every other 20 seconds? Don't see how that is crap.

    Sorry, back!!! I apologize for the lack of updates to this guide. I was moving to a new location and I just got FIOS installed today. I will be tediously updating the tables/posts. And yes I am aware of Soul being a typo. Under the table it says max, 19 is a typo hehe :P

    Also I'm not sure if the cool downs were removed but during the KMS release Fog among others had 20 sec cds.

    This guide will be updated as I level, since I am 1 week off training this will be slow. This is to obtain the best/accurate data for GMS Evans :D
