Angelic Buster is a MapleStory Nova Pirate who wields Soul Shooter (primary weapon) and Soul Ring (secondary weapon). Her primary stat is DEX (Dexterity). This job uses Soul Recharge System where each regular attack and attack skills has a chance recharge powerful charge skills to be used later on. These charge skills are displayed in Soul Recharge UI. There is no cooldown limitation to these charge skills but depending on how fast you can charge. It recharges one skill at a time starting from the weakest to strongest charge skill. Angelic Buster regular attack is special as they can attack while moving similarly to Phantom Mille Aiguilles or Bow Master Storm of Arrows. Angelic Buster is gender-locked, which means you can only make female-character to play this job! Also you will need to be transformed into this pink-haired idol to use those skills below. Don’t worry about looking same as every Angelic Buster. You can change the appearances of this character via Coordinate Skill under Beginner Skill Tab.

Angelic Buster Storyline
Born without a tail or magic, a young Nova named Tear endured disappointment from Nova elders and flat-out torment from her peers. Her only friends were two kind boys, Kyle and Velderoth, who watched over her from the get-go. Together, they formed the Heliseum Force, dreaming of one day recapturing the homeland that was stolen from them. But they were too young to stand up to the attacks on Pantheon. When the Heliseum Force is overwhelmed at Pantheon, Tear calls on the power of an ancient relic to save her friends. Her plan works, but she gets much more than she bargained for. Now, the voice of the ancient Nova dragon warrior, Eskalade, rings out in her head. It tells Tear of her new destiny… to become the Angelic Buster!
Angelic Buster Notes
- Angelic Buster implements a Dress Up Skill System where you can transform into a lovely pink-hair celebrity idol or transform back normally to view your equipment (helm, armor, shoe, glove, etc). This transformation is similar to Cygnus Knight Wind Archer 3rd Job Skill (Eagle Eye) or Kaiser’s Transfiguration into Dragon Saber without the need of charging Morph Gauge. Kaiser is one of Angelic Buster biggest fan – This can be seen where she dances and sings on the stage while Kaiser enjoys her performance.
- Angelic Buster uses Soul Battery skills are powerful attacks that must be recharged after use, and the only way to recharge them is by attacking enemies! Different attacks will recharge the skills at different rates, and the Affinity Heart skills can help them recharge faster. You’ll know a skill needs to be recharged when its icon turns gray. The Soul Battery UI lists all available Soul Battery skills and their availability.

2. Soul Shooter Mastery (MAX)
3. Beautiful Soul (MAX)
4. Affinity Heart II (MAX)
5. Power Transfer (MAX)
6. Pink Pummel (MAX)
7. Lovely Sting (19/20)
Add 1 SP (Skill Point) into Pink Pummel. This skill will be beneficial to cluster monsters into a corner and finish them with your charge skill. Start by maxing your Soul Shooter Mastery (damage stabilizer) followed by Beautiful Soul (for additional boost to min max damage) and Affinity Heart II (speed up recharge rate). Next, max Pink Pummel as it is much faster to travel and attack at the same time instead of using regular attack. The reason why Pink Pummel is maxed instead of Lovely Sting is because Pink Pummel does not require any recharge to activate and the damage between both skills is roughly the same at max level. Furthermore, Pink Pummel does cover some area by charging forward into enemies and you will be able to discover more monsters along the way. If you are able KO (knockout) monsters in 1 hit, Pink Pummel is the way to go as it will be a great combo with 3rd Job Skills. If you like Lovely Sting, you can max that instead and the remaining SP is dumped into Pink Pummel. Finally, max Power Transfer last as it won’t be much help until you reach higher level where monsters deal high physical or magical damage.
Angelic Buster 3rd Job Skills
Affinity Heart III (Passive)
Get closer with Eskalade to increase DEX and acquire vision.
Level 1: +62% Recharge chance when Recharge files 2 consecutive times. Dex: +2, Damage: +1%
Level 20: +100% Recharge chance when Recharge files 2 consecutive times. Dex: +40, Damage: +20%
Affinity Heart III is less important in 3rd job training as you will be mostly spamming Heavenly Crash, a skill that isn’t a Soul Battery Skill. Once you maxed Heavenly Crash to unlock additional targets, you can max this to further boost your damage. It’s similar to Physical Training with bonus damage.
Dragon Whistle (Supportive)
Endure Eskalade’s advances to increase Weapon Attack.
Level 1: Duration: 28 sec, Weapon Attack: +2
Level 20: Duration: 180 sec, Weapon Attack: +40
Max Dragon Whistle first because this skill significantly boost damage for all attacking skills
Heavenly Crash (Active)
Slams the ground to create a shockwave that attacks enemies in range and launches them.
Level 1: Mobs Hit: 6, Damage: 608%, Number of Attacks: 1. Attacked mobs lifted upwards. Recharge Chance: 20%
Level 20: Mobs Hit: 8, Damage: 760%, Number of Attacks: 1. Attacked mobs lifted upwards. Recharge Chance: 20%
Max Heavenly Crash early during 3rd Job to unlock more targets to be affected by this skill. Also, find for training grounds that has double platforms and hammer enemies from the bottom platform so you can hit enemies top and bottom at the same time!
Shining Star Burst (Active)
Summons group of star blades enchanted with Eskalade’s power.
Level 1: Mobs Hit: 6, Damage: 590%, Number of Attacks: 1. Damage dealt against enemies launched by Heavenly Crash doubled. Soul Battery skill. Recharge Chance: 40%
Level 20: Mobs Hit: 8, Damage: 780%, Number of Attacks: 1. Damage dealt against enemies launched by Heavenly Crash doubled. Soul Battery skill. Recharge Chance: 40%
Shining Star Burst is seldom used due to the success rate to recharge. It’s easier to just spam Heavenly Crash against enemies on double platform. This skill only affects the platform you are currently standing on only!
Soul Seeker (Active)
Extracts the essence of Eskalade’s power and sends it flying at enemies. Deals damage continuously until the max is reached or until it disappears.
Level 1: Essence Summoned: 2, Max Enemies Randomly Attacked: 2. Damage from each Essence: 206%, Number of Attacks: 1. Essence Recreation Chance: 28%, Max Essence Recreated: 7. Soul Battery skill: Recharge Chance: 30%
Level 20: Essence Summoned: 2, Max Enemies Randomly Attacked: 2. Damage from each Essence: 320%, Number of Attacks: 1. Essence Recreation Chance: 85%, Max Essence Recreated: 7. Soul Battery skill: Recharge Chance: 30%
Soul Seeker isn’t that useful when it comes to training, but its used as an aid to deal extra damage to powerful monsters especially bosses. Therefore, this can be maxed last. Soul Seeker ignores attack reflect, Jump shot is now allowed.
Love Me Heart (Passive)
Become more resistant to external damage with inner peace.
Level 1: Max HP: +100, Weapon/Magic Defense: +100
Level 10: Max HP: +1000, Weapon/Magic Defense: +1000

Withstands enemy attacks with iron-like will.
Level 1: Duration: 28 sec, Power Stance Chance: 21%. Effect doubled when Power Transfer Shield is up.
Level 20: Duration: 180 sec, Power Stance Chance: 40%. Effect doubled when Power Transfer Shield is up.
Iron Blossom is an extremely useful skill that helps you to stay in a position without getting knockback by enemies. It also helps to prevent any disruption from enemies when you are casting your skills. Max this skill as early as possible once you have maxed the essential damage boosting skills.
Angelic Buster 3rd Job Skill Build: Everything maxed except Shining Star Burst.
1. Heavenly Crash (1)
2. Dragon Whistle (MAX)
3. Heavenly Crash (MAX)
4. Affinity Heart III (MAX)
5. Iron Blossom (MAX)
6. Love Me Heart (MAX)
7. Soul Seeker (MAX)
8. Shining Star Burst (14/20)
Soul Seeker is maxed instead of Shining Star Burst because Celestial Roar (4th Job Skill) can easily replace both Heavenly Crash and Shining Star Burst for its stun, high damage and wide-long range attack! Soul Seeker will be beneficial during 4th Job Training especially Boss Raids/Solo as it acts as a supportive damage while you attack with either Trinity/Celestial Roar (4th Job Skills).
