    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.

    Angelic Buster 2nd Job Skill Build: Everything maxed except Lovely Sting.
    1. Pink Pummel, Lovely Sting (1)
    2. Soul Shooter Mastery (MAX)
    3. Beautiful Soul (MAX)
    4. Affinity Heart II (MAX)
    5. Pink Pummel (MAX)
    6. Lovely Sting (19/20)
    7. Power Transfer (MAX)

    Explanation:
    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. If you are training on monsters several levels higher than you for greater EXP, you might want to consider maxing Power Transfer before Pink Pummel to reduce the damage that enemies can inflict on you.

    Angelic Buster 3rd Job Skills

    Soul_Seeker Soul Seeker (Active)
    Summons the essence of Eskalade’s power and sends it flying at enemies. Deals damage continuously until the max is reached or until it disappears. Soul Seeker ignores attack reflection. Level 10 required to learn Soul Shooter Expert.

    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.

    Falling_Star 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!

    Land_Crash Heavenly Crash (Active)
    Slams the ground to create a shockwave that attacks enemies in range and launches them. Can be resisted by some monsters.
    Level 1: Mobs Hit: 6, Damage: 608%, 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!

    Iron_Lotus Iron Blossom (Supportive)
    Withstands enemy attacks with iron-like will.
    Level 1: Duration: 28 sec, Knockback Resistance: 21%. Effect doubled when Power Transfer Shield is up.
    Level 20: Duration: 180 sec, Knockback Resistance: 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.

    Call_of_Ancient Dragon Whistle (Passive)
    Endure Eskalade’s advances to increase Weapon Attack.
    Level 1: Attack +2
    Level 20: Attack +40
    Max Dragon Whistle first because this skill significantly boost damage for all attacking skills

    Inner_Peace Love Me Heart (Passive)
    Become more resistant to external damage with inner peace.
    Level 1: Max HP: +100, DEF: +100
    Level 10: Max HP: +1000, DEF: +1000
    Max Love Me Heart approximately mid 3rd Job to improve your defenses against enemies attack and enemies bump damage! This helps in reducing the HP Potion consumption, great for unfunded Angelic Buster.

    Affinity Heart III (Passive)
    Get closer with Eskalade to increase DEX and acquire vision.
    Level 1: +62% Recharge chance when Recharge fails twice in a row. Dex: +2, Damage: +1%
    Level 20: +100% Recharge chance when Recharge fails twice in a row. 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.

    Angelic Buster 3rd Job Skill Build: Everything maxed except Shining Star Burst.
    1. Heavenly Crash (1)
    2. Dragon Whistle (MAX)
    3. Heavenly Crash (MAX)

    5. Iron Blossom (MAX)
    6. Love Me Heart (MAX)
    7. Soul Seeker (MAX)
    8. Shining Star Burst (14/20)

    Explanation:
    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).

    Explanation:
    Check this Hyper Stats Guide for more details! Angelic Buster has received a new patch update which buffs Affinity Heart 1 and Affinity Heart 3. It’s pointless to get any additional recharge from Hyper Skills such as +10% recharge rate for Soul Seeker or the hyper for +20% recharge for Trinity. Even without the hyper skill that recharges, you more or less get 100% recharge on everything now. With Affinity 3, you auto recharge when failing 2 recharges. With Affinity 4, you get to re-roll when you fail a recharge. So if you have all the Affinity skills maxed, you will more or less never fail a recharge. So, the possible scenarios: (Fail, re-roll, Fail, automatic Recharge) or (Fail, re-roll, Pass) or (Pass. no re-roll).

    @Painbowslash Perhaps you accidentally allocated points to anything other than affinity heart 2 and affinity heart 3. Angelic buster does not get enough points to max out all the skills in 2nd job and 3rd job. Perhaps try getting SP resets.

  2. Painbowslash

    Hi my affinity heart 2 is stuck at mastery 19 and affinity heart 3 is stuck at mastery 14 and i cant seem to put any points into it to get it to the final level after getting 4th job.

  3. Ambiva

    Also worth noting that many funded class cannot one hit grinding at Cloack tower with drop gear (for farming symbols simultaneously), only funded AB can easily:)

  4. Ambiva

    One of the most prominent pro is missing: mobility :)
    AB is likely the most mobile class (overall, I made a very detailed chart comparing all classes before)
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1AG2pZsMhMWUHcZP7zChZ0LGrBfI4WnFJyw1Yq_93x7w

    Means that she excels in mobbing (other than high %dmg, can use different combination of long double jump + grapple/ungrapple and attack anytime, extremely flexible), and fast general quests/moving, both horizontally and vertically

    @Xadasf: Thanks for your input! I have added the cons for Kaiser and Angelic Buster.

  6. Xadasf

    Cons for Angelic buster or Kaiser (nova)
    Prequest for Normal or Hard Magnus is special long

  7. Ayumilove Post author

    @Iria: Thanks for the notice! I’ll update Angelic Buster 3rd Job skills as soon as possible :)

  8. Ayumilove Post author

    @Ray: Angelic Buster Hyper Skills have been updated!

  9. Ray

    Please update ANGELIC BUSTER HYPER SKILLS, thx!!

  10. Irfan

    @Iria No wonder I can’t use that skill. I thought the game broke or something. Now I can rest easy
    :D

  11. Iria

    A few 3rd job skills look off compared to the current version of the game. ex. Dragon Whistle is now a flat stat increase instead of a buff

  12. Ayumilove Post author

    @NoNameNoSkill: Thanks for your feedback! I’ll update this Angelic Buster skills based on GMS updates.

  13. NoNameNoSkill

    *need to update skills since reboot patch

  14. John

    Erm, it seems that power transfer has an additional function now? And melody cross doesn’t increase hp anymore?

  15. John

    Erm, it seems that power transfer has another function now? And melody cross doesn’t increase hp anymore?

  16. Rita

    Um, excuse me, Ayumi. Why do you not advocate putting a point into Hyper Skill Finale Ribbon – Overwhelm? Would it not help for damage purposes? It increases your max damage cap! Surely it would be good, wouldn’t it?

  17. Ayumilove Post author

    @Shaun: Thanks for your feedback! I have updated Melody Cross skill details.

  18. Shaun

    Hi Ayumi, in the first job skills section, Melody Cross no longer increases Accuracy, but instead provides +1 attack speed level and max health.

  19. Heliogabalus

    How does soul seeker work? Because I used to think like, when you got the hyper skill that makes it function on it’s own, well it would go out on it’s own lol but now it isn’t working. Like, I have to click on the skill for it work…

  20. Hui Ting

    Hi Ayumi~! I love your guide~~! I just wanna know is there any link skills from other jobs that will be beneficial for Angelic Buster? I wanna create a new job and wanna have some opinions. Thanks~!

  21. Andrew

    Hey Ayumi. I’m playing on GMS and I have a question about how Affinity 3 works. Does this mean that if I spam Trinity, and it fails twice, it will recharge if I press it again? Because right now that doesn’t seem to be happening.

    Hey Ayumi. I’m playing on GMS and I have a question about how Affinity 3 works. Does this mean if I spam Trinity and it fails twice, it will recharge if I press is again? Or it auto recharges Trinity? Because right now neither seems to be happening.

    oops, and sorry for posting twice, the first one didn’t show up before =O

  22. Ayumilove Post author

    @Tylx: Thanks for your feedback. I have updated Angelic Buster 2nd Job Skill Build Guide and added additional note in the explanation!

  23. Tylx

    In the second job part, the green text says to max Power transfer last. Yet in the list it is nr 5, above Pink pummel and Lovely sting. I think the list needs to be changed?

  24. Ayumilove Post author

    @A aka fardeline: I have updated the “Terms and Conditions” effects. Sorry for the late reply!

  25. Ayumilove Post author

    @brownie: Angelic Buster “Terms and Conditions” 4 attacks came from “kMSt ver. 1.2.442” and it was officially buffed/replaced with 10 second of damage boost (4 attacks → 10 sec damage boost) in KMS. Hence, GMS Angelic Buster patches does not have that nerf in it. I have corrected the Link Skill description! Sorry if it has caused any confusion/frustration! :(

  26. Ayumilove Post author

    @everyone: Angelic Buster skills have been updated to GMS v.163
    Kindly inform if I missed out any skills. Thanks!

  27. brownie

    Hi ayumi, in which patch does “terms and conditions get nerfed to 4 attacks instead of 10s of damage boost? Thx

  28. sam

    I am using this charater and now i 50lv,all skill i up max in 1 and 2job,izzit wrong move?or play a new acc follow ur skill build?

  29. Ayumilove Post author

    @Filian: Thanks for your feedback! I’ll be updating Angelic Buster Hyper Skill Build Guide. The Soul Resonance – Reinforce is an old skill which was removed after the patch.

  30. Filian

    Hi there, your Hyper skill build states soul resonance- reinforce (MAX), but the hyper skills are only soul seeker, trinity and finale ribbon, as stated above! So either one must be wrong coz if not there’ll be an extra hyper skill ._.

  31. Angelicx

    Hi, firstly I would like to thank you for updating this awesome guide! I have a question non related to this guide actually. Im not sure if it’s just me or what but my AB seem to have extremely low defend. When I go to KD4 three hit from mob and I am dead Do you have the same problem too?

  32. A

    “Terms and Conditions”‘s effect is outdated.
    This might point out to this whole guide being a little outdated.
    Could you kindly fix it?

  33. Tan

    @Ayumilove: ur skill build is a little bit outdated, I think I should update?

  34. KangMaru

    Hyper skill build is a little outdated? Would you still max out the soul seeker skills and do some random trinity buff, or would you try to maximize trinity’s damage?

  35. Ayumilove Post author

    @bobomehmeh: Need to wait for MapleSEA to update to the latest Angelic Buster patch :D Currently KMS and GMS has this new skill.

  36. bobomehmeh

    In MAPLE SEA server , the ABs do not have a soul seeker expert skill… :(

  37. ABluver

    Hey, Ayumi.
    I have raised my characters with your guide and it was really helpful :D
    I’d like to point out a couple of AB’s hyper skill that changed from last update
    The requirement of lvl of Trinity-extra strike went down from 195 to 155 without dmg reduction.
    The requirement of lvl of Trinity-extra dmg went upn from 155 to 195 without dmg reduction.

  38. Apricot

    hi!! I’ve found this guide extremely helpful. So thank you! I do have one problem though, I’m playing in a new world: Jervyanis and there’s literally no shops in the FM, so I have no idea how to find all the Mastery books/skill books. Do you have a list of which monsters drop which skill book? Where I should hunt for them? Would really appreciate the help thanks!!

  39. AyumiFansNo1

    Hi Ayumi, May I know the 15% odd dmg n def ignore from trinity is for the skill only? Or we have the effect even we using others skill….

    N soli for my language

  40. Xenomata

    I have to ask about the Hyper skill recommendations, more specifically the Passive Skill Hyper skills, because if all the Affinity Heart passives all at max level makes it so that pretty much every Soul Battery skill used will result in a recharge, ergo making the whole point of the soul battery system redundant, then why would you want to make those the Hyper Skills used?
    Based on that, wouldn’t the below Hyper Skill guide for Passive-skill hypers be recommended?
    ~Soul Seeker – Make Up (increased chance to spawn another Seeker after one attacks, should be useful when Soul Seeker Expert is added)
    ~Finale Ribbon – Cooldown Cutter (20% of 90 is 18, which means the cooldown becomes 72 seconds. Any decrease helps I guess, especially if you have outside cooldown cutters.)
    ~Finale Ribbon – Reinforce (Bossing skill)
    ~Finale Ribbon – Extra Strike (Bossing skill)
    And then a toss up of one of the following, depending on which has more use in the users eyes:
    ~Soul Seeker – Reinforce (Due to SS’s damage being slightly lower when activated by SSE, this might be needed in order to deal higher damage)
    ~Finale Ribbon – Overwhelm (Since Angelic Buster’s damage cap still seems easily hit, some people might prioritize this hyper over SS-R. I don’t know though, I’m not most people.)

  41. Ayumilove Post author

    @EverettP: I get the mastery book based on the order of the 4th job skill build guide which are Affinity Heart IV -> Soul Shooter Expert -> Celestial Roar -> Star Gazer -> …

  42. EverettP

    any suggestion for mastery book to get?
    like which to get 30 and max it and so on

  43. Ayumilove Post author

    @Ishdoan: One skill I can think of is Pretty Exaltation for Angelic Buster.

  44. Ishdoan

    Ayumil what buff has a long cd and a short duration?

  45. Ayumilove Post author

    @AcidLinkz: Thanks for your feedback. I have updated Angelic Buster skill details to GMS v.150 – Rising Heroes (2014-06-17). Regarding the 3 to 2 consecutive fails, its 2 (from Level 1 to Max level)

  46. Ayumilove Post author

    @Cancer: I’ll update Angelic Buster Hyper Skill :)

  47. AcidLinkz

    also, Affinity Heart I at Master Level has its recharge rate increased to +30%, and Affinity Heart III at master level has the number of failed consecutive recharges to activate decreased from 3 to 2, though i have no idea atm if it was changed from 3 to 2 from skill level 1, or it goes from 3 to 2 somewhere while u level up the skill

  48. AcidLinkz

    Trinity – Extra Strike: Damage becomes 950%, Number of Attacks +1.
    Trinity – Recharge Up: Recharge chance +20%.
    Trinity – Reinforce: Damage +20%.

    these have completely replaced the soul resonance hyper skills as of June 25 in GMS, idk if u get ur sp back for just the HSP put into the soul resonance hyper skills, or if it returns all ur hyper SP to let u think of a new combo for which ones u want

  49. Cancer

    Hi, they seem to changed the skill enhacement hyperskill to trinity. I am unclear as to whether they replaced something or added it. If they only added it in, should skill points for hyper skills still be added as shown?

  50. EdwardLimChinShen

    Is it good to not fund and Angelic Burster/ Buster? I don’t know much about funding now and my AB is my main now. Do you also have any tips for leveling after level 100?

  51. Ayumilove Post author

    @Shadowcape: Thanks for the note! I have corrected the Skill Icon for Soul Seeker – Reinforce.

  52. Shadowcape

    The Skill Icon for Soul Seeker- Reinforce is Soul Resonance’s

  53. Ayumilove Post author

    @Tekky: Thanks for the note! I’ll get it updated now :D Too many guides for me to maintain lol~

  54. Joel

    Hello, can i ask what’s the music used for the video you made?

  55. Tekky

    lol just got my hypers, the debuff damage for finala ribbon is +3000000 and damage cap for soul resonance is at 100 mil.. sorry just got some new infos from my buddies

  56. Tekky

    Haha its ok, happy i could help, meh sometimes it gets busy and we tend to miss some patches

  57. Ayumilove Post author

    @Tekky: Oh ok, I realize that this new update for Angelic Buster is from GMS v.142 Dawnveil Demons of Tynerum which I missed for this job. I’ll update it now :)

  58. Tekky

    and also Trinity at max level is at 1600% dmg just managed to max it just now

  59. Tekky

    the thing i am still unsure of is the damage cap. I’ll try ask some of the people i know using AB as main. cuz it will be weird if the dmg cap stay at the low amount you written up there. ><

  60. Tekky

    Angelic Buster 2nd Job

    Lovely Sting: At Master Level: Damage has increased to 600%

    Angelic Buster 3rd Job

    Heavenly Crash: At Master Level: Damage has increased to 760%
    Soul Seeker: At Master Level: Essence respawn chance has increased to 85%, Ignores attack reflect, Jump shot is now allowed

    Angelic Buster 4th Job

    Trinity: At Master Level: Decreased the DEF ignore buff to 3 stacks, Passive effect added +15% passive damage, and +15% DEF ignore

    there u go not quite a lot of change but pretty decent buff up since most classes are like so strong.

  61. Ayumilove Post author

    Could you list down the skills that have been changed so I’ll update the one here?

  62. Tekky

    Ayumi you need to update the skill information for GMS. We had some changes and skills % damage and some tweaks. Love your guides btw :3

  63. ANgelicccc

    Hi I’ve maxed affinity IV but i’m still failing my skills quite often. Is there a change in the skills?

  64. Ayumilove Post author

    @Sandara: I think Angelic Buster is a season-job. It is made available for a specific duration which will be announced on MapleSEA.com official website.

  65. Sandara

    May I know how can I create Angelic Buster in Maplesea season 2 ? I can’t seem to find it ):

  66. InvincibleIII

    @Ameno Mikune
    You can’t make an Angelic Buster right now in MSEA, it was removed in a recent patch.

  67. Dontcare

    Trinity is a charge skill and it attacks one enemy not multiply enemies

  68. Ameno Mikune

    How can i make a angelic buster?

    P.s.: I’m using MapleSea~

  69. JellyHeartz

    hi there, could you add in a part for which skills need skill books to max? thanks!

  70. InvincibleIII

    Anyone getting magical girl vibes from this job? I know I do.

  71. Chau

    hey, ayumi , can you add which skills is need to put in a quickslot, please?

  72. Miko

    soul resonance “Enemies who constantly receives damage from this skill can only receive up to Max Damage”means that the max damge the enemies take is 9,999,999(the max dmg),isnt it right?btw,ayumi why my AB dmg range keep going up and down??any ideas?

  73. Katara

    Hi ayumi,i would like to know how much will ab nerfed if the job has balanced?? I’m playing maplesea currently.

  74. bladedual

    is MSEA angelic buster stronger than the other version?

  75. AngelicLuminous

    what’s the RoF of supreme supernova

  76. Udin

    Hi Ayumi. My question is the same as ABgal. From my understanding, you can freely use soul battery skill for 30 seconds. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    Is there any videos showing Angelic Buster soloing Horntail?

  77. ABgal

    Hi ayumilove, can you explain what pretty exaltation (the angelic buster hyper skill) does? Like what its effect is? Thanks a lot!

  78. jonathan

    hi I would like to ask what is ab’s bossing skill after the nerf? is it still soul seeker or trinity?

  79. hermes

    Hi AyumiLove , its great following your guide . i currently have a lv 120 AB with maxed out soul shooter expert . with 1 on all the attacking skills and lv 10 on affinity heart and celestial roar.my issue is i dunno how and where to hunt for crucial skillbooks like affinity heart iv and the remaining sp i have , should i pump them to fill up to lvl 10 on skills such as trinity or wait till i get my skillbooks ?
    any idea where I can hunt for affinity heart skillbook?

  80. AngelicLuminous

    thanks. I would also like to know what does this statement mean: “Enemies who constantly receives damage from this skill can only receive up to Max Damage.”
    does it mean they can receive more than max damage on the first hit? or they would only receive max damage? why aren’t they just constantly receiving 660%?
    sorry I still have a lot to learn about maple

  81. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi AngelicLuminous, it should be the 660%. Regarding the Soul Resonance’s Fire Rate, I do not know. From my wild guess, its roughly 8 times per second? I just use it without counting how many times it hits the enemy.

  82. AngelicLuminous

    hi ayumilove, what is the rate of fire of soul resonance? also, does +50% damage against bosses mean it does 660% or 915%?

  83. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks for the reply :) What quest do I have to do to get the Nova Hero’s Will? Thanks again!

  87. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi ABplayer, Nova Hero’s Will is only available upon completing a quest.

  88. ABplayer

    Hi, why does my angelic buster character not have the Nova Hero’s Will even though it has reached 4th job? I am playing on Maplesea. Thanks!

  89. Affinity Existance

    Ayumilove, thanks for your advice! I will follow your advice. Haha! :)

  90. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Affinity Existance, my advice to you is try different jobs and find out which 1 you like playing the most (not just about damage). Once you really like that job, then spend some time getting it to level to 200. My favorite jobs is Demon Slayer compared to Demon Avenger since it has more moves/skills to play with even though Demon Avenger is easier to play (do not need to worry about health and magic/mana)

  92. Affinity Existance

    By the way, I am a leveled 120 Angelic Buster, who has spent quite a bit of money on my Angelic Buster although I am relatively new to Maplestory. Therefore, I am seriously in a dilemma on what I should do now. :/

  93. Affinity Existance

    Hello, I would like to ask if I should continue to train my Angelic Buster. I heard from my guild mates that Angelic Buster is not as strong as it used to be and many people gave me the advice to switch to Dual Blade or Xenon once the characters can be created in MapleSEA. What should I do? :/

  94. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Athenares, you should grab Soul Shooter Expert which significantly boost your minimum damage, closing the gap between min-max damage output.

  95. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi lol, probably Xenon which is closely followed by Kaiser.

  96. Athenares

    Hi. May I know which mastery book for AB should I choose at level 70?

  97. lol

    which is the strongest, ab, luminous, kaiser or xenon?

  98. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Jazm, they probably have godly scrolled equipment, deck of cards, empress blessing / cygnus blessing, link skills and/or using attack potions. These are the many factors that increases one’s damage substantially.

  99. JAZM

    I see other ab have high damages to mobs, while im still at an average damage to mobs. Why is this so?

  100. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Its Me, I would choose Soul Shooter Expert since it stabilizes your damage (allowing you to deal high damage all the time) and it also boost your weapon attack and critical rate.

  101. Its Me

    Theres something like an event that gives me a quest to choose skillbooks
    There is :Celestial Roar,Trinity, Finale Ribbon, Soul Resonance, Star Gazer,Affinity Heart IV and Soul Shooter Expert. what should i choose among them?

  102. PshychohIde

    How do i get Chao essence stone?? i cant seem to find him!!

  103. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi finnjake, it is true that Trinity requires to be charged, similarly to Star Bubble (Angelic Burster/Buster 1st Job Skill). As long as your recharge success rate is high (90% and higher), you can spam it all day :) During my 1st Job as an Angelic Buster, I just spam Star Bubble as it can kill monsters faster than regular pew-pew attack.

  104. finnjake

    is trinity a charge skill? coz according to maplesea it must be charged meaning it cannot be spammed.

  105. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Tyrus, bossing with Demon Avenger (DA) will be easier to handle since your HP is so much that it would take at least 3-4 big hits from a boss to knock you out unless you have a pet to repot your HP during emergency (like 10% HP left). Angelic Buster allows you to cast some cool hyper skills while performing some other 4th job skills to take down boss quickly. With a pet to replenish your health and mana, it will be easy like Demon Avenger. One thing that bothers me about Angelic Buster is the recharge rate, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t. The one thing I dislike about Demon Avenger is their damage goes rock bottom upon reaching 70% or below for your current HP (Health Points).

  106. Jovelle

    Hellos. I am doing the lv 35 ‘Put up your dukes’ quest where onw has to find the Temple at orange forest but I can’t seem to find it. Anyone knows? Thanks in advance (^ ^)

  107. Tyrus

    If With Bossing ?
    AB Or Da Will Be Nicer ?

    Thankiew Ayumi :D

    Hi Tyrus, try Demon Avenger first as its easier to play compared to Angelic Burster/Buster. When I played Demon Avenger, there is not a single time I need to use a health/magic potion. If you came from other job/classes that uses lots of potions/elixirs, you won’t find yourself using them at all :D Oh yeah, there isn’t a single moment that my character is killed by monsters. The damage reduction by Demon Avenger is simply amazing. It reduces most monster damage to 1 whereas your healing its by %MaxHP.

  110. Tyrus

    Ayumi….
    I’m Don’t Whether Should Choose Demon Avenger Or Angelic Buster..
    Can Give Some Idea ?

    hey ayumi, im currently playing maplesea. im stuck at the part where the angelic buster, kaiser and velderoth, meets the bad guy. its a part of the quest where they are trying to restore the shields (lvl38-40). there will be a picture that shows up after the conversation and after that picture shows up, my entire game closes. is there anyway of solving this? help me please :(

  113. Muhammad Zulhusni

    the step u post at the morning is worked,thank you very much ayumilove i really appreciate your help.

  114. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Muhammad Zulhusni, go to your MapleStory installation folder, and double-click on setup.exe. That program sets your monitor frequency up for MapleStory. Please run this program if your screen turns pitch black, or if you see a warning on your monitor on exceeding the range of frequency of your monitor. Click NO if you are not able to see the game clearly when game starts. Follow the instructions given by the setup.exe

  115. Muhammad Zulhusni

    ayumilove i already try the step u post but it still check signal cable when i open maplesea can give me more step for this?

  116. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Muhammad Zulhusni, check whether MapleSEA is down for maintenance, then try disabling all anti-virus and firewall before restarting MapleStory to see whether this solution works!

  117. Muhammad Zulhusni

    ayumilove pls can u tell me why i get check signal cable problem when i enter maplesea pls reply this as fast as possible

  118. ShYGuY154

    I would go for Affinity IV because having it maxed will give you 100% recharge, based on the information given. :P Very helpful in training since Celestial Roar and Trinity will most likely be your main attacking moves, and you’ll most likely be spamming it.

  119. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks Ryan for the feedback! If you spot any mistakes in my guide, please let me know and I’ll quickly correct them :)

  120. Ryan

    Just wanted to tell u i <3 yr guides cos they're short and easy to read :) Thanks :)

  121. sarf

    hi ayumi, you got a great class guide out here and i always ended up checking up this good little site of yours,

    i wanted to ask you what kind of 100% skill book should i take for the 100% skill book giveaway?
    the passive, affinity heart and soulshooter expert both are good, couldn’t choose between them frankly

    thanks in advance

  122. DeSnowy

    @terence Little bit of both, but mostly Kms.

  123. TerenceTS

    MSEA is based to KMS or GMS?

  124. mlxxphantom

    may i know , is it this is the latest revamped skill %?

  125. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Anything, all jobs that has Link Skills can upgrade their link skill from Level 1 to Level 2 upon reaching Level 120. If you have reached that level but it did not upgrade, it means that GMS has not implemented it yet.

  126. Anything

    Does ab have a level 2 link skill?

  127. ShYGuY154

    @AngelicBally-
    Everything maxed except Shining Star Burst.
    1. Add 1 SP into Heavenly Crash, Shining Star Burst and Soul Seeker.
    2. Max Affinity Heart III and Dragon Whistle.
    3. Max Heavenly Crash and Cap Shining Star Burst at Level 14.
    4. Max Love Me Heart, Iron Blossom and Soul Seeker.
    Not sure if you misread, but it says “MAX Heavenly Crash and Cap Shining Star Burst at Level 14.”
    If that’s not what you meant, AB’s skill points gained can ONLY be used in their current job advancement (Similar to Evans, Luminous, Kaisers, etc.) since the SP for each job advancement is separate from the other job advancements.
    Ex- You have 15 SP while training and you hit 100 and become 4th Job AB. The 15 SP you’ve accumulated doesn’t show up for the 4th job skill list because it’s separate from the previous skill list. Instead, you get 4 (3?) skill points for 4th job, and the other 15 for 3rd.

  128. AngelicBally (lol)

    But i’ve calculated that you just have one skill whcih you can’t max…Why do we just need to put the hammer and the twinkle at 14?

  129. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks JamyTea for the comment.

  130. JamyTea

    heya ayumi i love using ur guide for the info because its clearer than anything else i used

  131. ThrowableMan

    uhm Ayumi are You Singaporean? or SEA player?

  132. Jasquan

    Hrmm… if my calculations are right, which they probably arent, you should have loads of SP for 4th job left, right? :s
    so I’m confused, yeah…

  133. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Kaze, if the Mastery Book specifically mentions a job that could use that book, it means that job could use it only :D You can also verify it using Owl of Minerva (if you are a Cash User)

  134. Kaze

    Hi, Ayumi, i lastday got a masterybook is but at there it only write for Angelic buster job , i wan to ask u that isit is only for Angelic buster job use or Kaiser also can use it? Or Kaiser got his different Nova Warrior to use too? Cos they are same race?

  135. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Mac, yeah, I really hate Angelic Buster’s nerf. When I was training my AB, it was frustrating for the Recharge skill not work on the time that I needed it, and had to charge it using my pewpew skill (regular attack). Thanks for stopping by here, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to leave a comment below :)

  136. Mac

    Oh, GMS has nerfed some of AB’s recharge rates the last time and it’s kinda frustrating now. There has been some buff ups as well, i just hope this is the last adjustment. Nice page Ayumi, this has been my guide since day 1 of training my AB :)

  137. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi LumiLover, I do not know when GMS will unlock Angelic Buster again. But sadly to say, its not as fun as Kaiser and it kinda annoys me when the skill does not charge at the right moment.

  138. LumiLover

    When will we be able to make AB again? I’m super excited for the re-release!

  139. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi ivan111, the video skill preview was made before GMS released Angelic Buster :)

  140. ivan111

    there seems to be a mistake on the video. there was no gigantic icicles for angelic buster 3rd job.

  141. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Brylon, perhaps next big patch released by GMS or when they introduce a new character like Xenon.

  142. Brylon

    Any clue as to when this class is available to create characters for again?

  143. Maplechristian

    Ayumi there is no information for gigantic icicles in the 3rd job. Or us it replaced by shining star burst? Thanks

  144. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Hidden, I believe that EMS will follow GMS Angelic Buster version instead of JMS assuming that they figured out it would be best to make them “balance” to compensate Angelic Buster’s unique ability to not consume any MP at all. It’s kinda annoying to recharge a skill not knowing whether it will work first time or second time.

  145. hidden

    AB just came to EMS, and it has the same low dmg as GMS i think. Is this perma, or will the dmg on skills be the same as JMS’s skills, or even better at all? I think the hammer skill does so crappy dmg with only 440% dmg at lvl 30….

  146. Ragebourne

    Hi Ayumi. Just wanna ask for your opinions that which one of the DEX classes has the highest output and is good at mobbing and bossing at the same time? Im playing AB on KMS with 160% of DEX but im running TARGA/SCARLION pretty slowly :

  147. Skyzo97

    Can someone give me some information about what monster can drop Angelic Burster mastery book ….

  148. Ayumilove Post author

    What difference would it make? GMS nerf is between -33%-50% damage of KMS.

  149. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Angel, you can choose Soul Shooter Expert 30 (GM Mastery Book is 100% success rate). This will unlock level 11-30. Also, do a survey in MapleStory Freemarket to see the price of each Mastery Book. Lets say Soul Shooter Expert 20+30 total cost is 10 million meso, whereas Celestial Roar 20+30 total is 50 million meso due to its rareness. From this information, select the more expensive mastery book and purchase Soul Shooter 20+30 with meso. The price for each mastery book differs for each server (Scania / Bera / etc)

  150. Angel

    This is guide is really good! Ayumilove, i’m lv.70 and I get to selecet a special Mastery book from the maple administrator, but i don’t know which one to select. Would u mind selecting a good one for me?
    These are the choices
    – Celestial Roar 30, Trinity 30, Finale Ribbon 30, Soul Resonance 30, Star Grazer 30, Soul Shooter Expert 30, Affinity lV 30, Thanks ^-^

  151. Joel

    Adding a CMS/GMS postnerf damage along with KMS’s damage would be nice.

  152. Uhou Chio

    Ok! Thank you very much! ^_^
    By the way, great guide. :)

  153. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Uhou Chio, you can max either one (Pink Pummel or Lovely Sting). My recommendation is to max Pink Pummel. I have updated Angelic Buster 2nd Job Skill Build Guide with my reasons on why I prefer that instead of Lovely Sting. Its up to your playing preference though. Some players would want to have all their Angelic Buster charge skills maxed. For me, if you can 1 hit KO monsters, Pink Pummel is much better as it kills more mobs in 1 area. Faster and more monster eliminated means quicker progress in leveling up.

  154. Uhou Chio

    For 2nd job, Lovely Sting was said to be maxed but in the description, you said to max Pink Pummel. Which skill should be maxed?

  155. Robert

    #ayumilove What do you put for the AP? and when do I stop at what level?

  156. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Jason Huang, Yes, enjoying my MapleStory (Luminous) character :)

  157. Jason Huang

    This is really good! I play Angelic Burster and following this guide, so much help! Thank you! Are you playing maplestory too?

  158. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi :D, I doubt its not Miku but resembles like Hatsune Miku with twin side pink pony tails.

  159. :D

    is she miku’s sister?

  160. Pancakiee

    The only thing I’m confused about is .. why Finitura Fettuccia looks so alike to Fatality.. and the same for Falling stars with Icicle crash.. (Or something like that.)

  161. Ayumilove Post author

    In GMS (USA/Global) its called Angelic Buster.
    In KMS (Korea), its called Angelic Burster.
    I wonder why GMS loves to change the names.

  162. zho

    Guys it’s called Angelic Buster no Burster.

  163. Suvien

    When will we be able to play this angelic burster??

  164. Pancakiee

    Hey guys, Angelic burster is a class that uses the ”Recharge” system, which is basically her mp bar, which means you have to constantly recharge in order to use your attacks.

  165. Apple 3.14

    Yeah this is for Angelic Burster, for solo dps zakum, the AB had a long hp bar and a exp bar below it, does this mean no more Mana Points? or other sources of energy?

  166. iluvAB

    How do we max multiple skills at once? And does AB use MP or what?

  167. Sammeh

    angelic is coming next month in 2013, i cant wait. i have my lumi but i want the angelic so much more!

  168. Benny Chan

    hi,ayumilove,i wanna ask a thing,i saw the video about AB killing zakum,and then i feel something different between tat video and the other job skill one,tat AB didn’t got show it MP,can i ask why??

  169. Deity

    By the way, when did this, luminous and kaiser come out in Kms?

  170. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Alvin, My guess its around 2013.

  171. alvin

    when will out this job 2013?2014?2015? or……

  172. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi AceOfBlades247, what are the best Character Cards for Angelic Burster?

  173. aceofblades247

    I just hope AB is coming to GMS I’ve been making Character Cards for her.

  174. Deity

    Ok thank you and please let me know as soon as you find out.

  175. Ayumilove Post author

    @Deity: Truth to be told, I do not know until we see a public announcement from GMS Official Site. This same applies to new jobs released by other MapleStory regions (JMS/KMS/CMS)

  176. Deity

    Will this, Hayato, or Dragon Warrior come out in the USA soon?

  177. Ayumilove Post author

    @exia:

    There won’t be a male Angelic Burster. But maybe there will be a job with only male (gender-lock). This has been introduced in JMS Hayato where you can only make male Hayato, not female. Female version will be Kanna in JMS (Japan MapleStory)

  178. exia

    will there be a job like this but this time is a guy?

  179. Mano

    Thank you very much! You are doing an excellent job!
    When the Angelic Burster will come out I will play with it and comment again about what I think is the best from my playing experience, and correcting if needed. :)

  180. Ayumilove Post author

    @Mano: Thanks for the note! The 3rd Job build above only considered the best skills during that time without 4th Job included. I’ll update the skill build again :)

  181. Mano

    Just so you know, you posted different skill builds and explaintions.
    For example on the 3rd job, you said not to max Soul Seeker but the explaintion says not to max Iron lotus.
    Also, I wanted to clear that Soul Seeker is a must and you should not max Falling Stars, with much respect to Land Crash and Falling Stars you most likely won’t be using them on the 4th job when you get Primarl Roar and Finitura Fettuccia, at least that’s my opinion.

  182. Ayumilove Post author

    Updated Angelic Burster with KMS 1.2.168 Patch.

  183. Ayumilove Post author

    @ConfusedRaik: Not really, its kinda funny and simple for new players.

    @Hmm: I have added Angelic Buster 4th Job Skill Descriptions :)

    @Arsh: Thanks for stopping by!

  184. Arsh

    New to this blog or website looks prty good :]

  185. Hmm?

    Wondering but can u get a description for all the 4th job skills?

  186. ConfusedRaika

    The third job video is kinda fail.
