Demon Slayer Storyline

Demon Slayer was one of Black Mage’s loyal generals but was betrayed by his fellow generals and Black Mage. He fought against his former comrades and Black Mage himself but was defeated and sealed away. He awakens in present by breaking the seal which had weakened over a century. Demon Slayer find himself considerably weak due to Black Wings draining his power for their own benefits. He was then rescued by one of the Resistance members. The Resistance member briefed him about Black Wings organization and Black Mage who was still alive. Demon Slayer decides to join the Resistance in hopes to meet Black Mage to exact his revenge.

Demon Slayer Notes

  • The Demon Slayer is only occasionally available to create. When this is available, he will either be an option on the normal class selection menu, or there will be a special menu you can open from the character select screen.
  • Following the required part of her tutorial, the Demon Slayer is already level 10 with his first job advancement complete.
  • There will be a quest for each job advancement in the quest notifier (light bulb) on the left side of your game window when you reach a level when you can do a job advancement.
  • The Demon Slayer needs to have a one-handed blunt weapon or one-handed axe equipped in order to perform most of his skills.
  • The Demon Slayer has a unique shield called a Demon Aegis. It grows more powerful as he goes through job advancements, and it grants him more points of Dark Force.
  • Dark Force doesn’t function completely like MP. You must attack enemies using certain skills in order to drain energy from them to recover your DF.
  • The Demon Slayer uses a combo system that is a bit different from Aran’s. After learning Demon Lash, the key for your regular attack must be tapped multiple times in succession to perform the combos.
  • The moniker “Demon Slayer” comes from him being a slayer who is part demon.
  • Each Demon Slayer character has its own Cash Inventory, not shared with other characters.
  • Although we might refer to the Demon Slayer with masculine pronouns outside of the game, you will have the option to play as a female version of the Demon Slayer in the game.

Demon Slayer 1st Job Skills

Demon Lash Demon Lash (Passive)
Attacks 6 monsters within range and replenishes fury per hit.
Rapid click the attack key to slash the same enemy with more damage!
1st and 2nd slash hits enemy once, 3rd slash hits enemy twice, 4th slash hits enemy thrice.
LV1: 91% Damage (1st and 2nd Slash), 81% Damage (3rd and 4th Slash)
LV10: 100% Damage (1st and 2nd Slash), 90% Damage (3rd and 4th Slash)

Demon Slayer 1st Job Skill Build: Everything maxed.
1. Demon Lash, Grim Scythe (1)
2. Shadow Swiftness (MAX)
3. Demon Lash (MAX)
4. Battle Pact (MAX)
5. HP Boost (MAX)
6. Grim Scythe (MAX)

Explanation:
In my opinion, training on monsters that only takes 1-2 hits is faster with Demon Slash compared to Grim Scythe. Therefore, I max Grim Scythe last. By the time you reach near level 30, you can use Grim Scythe against mini bosses like Slime King in Kerning Party Quest. However for training efficiency, get Shadow Swiftness to move around map quickly to reach monster/town. Next boost Demon Slash damage followed by Battle Pact (increases your slashing speed considerably). These 2 alone levels you up faster than Grim Scythe, unless you can find a spot crowded with monster, use Grim Scythe instead.

Demon Slayer 2nd Job Skills

LV1: Demon Lash Damage +40%.

3. Outrage (MAX)
4. Physical Training (MAX)
5. Soul Eater (MAX)
6. Vengeance (MAX)
7. Dark Thrust (18/20)
8. Chaos Lock (MAX)

Explanation:
Barbed Slash only requires 1 SP to max to gain great bonus damage, so max that first! Soul Eater and Dark Thrust are basically weak if the base damage is low. Therefore, add 1 SP first into these 2 primary attacking skills for 2nd job, then max Outrage, Physical Training and Weapon Mastery. Once that is done, max Soul Eater. You will be bumping into monsters especially with Dark Thrust, so max Vengeance to save some health. Chaos Lock isn’t use often since its more effective to clear map with Dark Thrust in a cycle.

Demon Slayer 3rd Job Skill Build: Everything maxed except Vortex of Doom.
1. Demon Arch Lash (MAX)
2. Carrion Breath (1)
3. Fury (MAX)
4. Focused Fury (MAX)
5. Carrion Breath (MAX)
6. Insult to Injury (MAX)
7. Possessed Aegis (MAX)
8. Black-Hearted Strength (MAX)
9. Raven Storm (MAX)
10. Judgement (MAX)
11. Vortex of Doom (18/20)

Explanation:
You will be using Soul Eater (Demon Slayer 2nd Job Skill) for 3rd Job Training area until you get your Carrion Breath and Insult to Injury. Therefore, to spam Soul Eater often, maxed Max Fury and Focused Fury. Do not max other offensive 3rd Job Skills yet since it consumes way too much Fury at once against cluster of weak monsters.

Upon maxing those skills above, maxed Carrion Breath and Insult to Injury to deal more damage against tougher high health monsters. It is not recommended to use Judgement for training as it uses lots of Fury and deals less damage. Killing monsters instantly with Fury skills using little Fury allows you to spam these skills often and level up faster with effective Fury training.

Monsters also do high damage, so you will need to protect yourself from getting hurt. Proceed with maxing Possessed Aegis and Black Hearted Strength. Personally, I don’t use Judgment and Vorex of Doom much since Dark Thrust is easier to pack monsters into a can of sardines and poison them to death with Carrion Breath. In short, these skills can be upgraded later.

Max Raven of Storm to save some health potions. Less health potions consumed means less visits to the clinic/pharmacy to purchase potions. Once all the essential skills above are maxed, you can max other skills in any order.

Explanation:
Demon’s Slayer primary attacking skill will be Demon Cry because monster’s affected by it reward additional EXP (Experience) and its much faster to clear the entire map with this skill if you can perform 1 hit kill on them! I personally use it until I reach Level 130.

  1. Bryan

    Ayumi, how do I stop spamming cause everytime I go zakum, it says that it found some hacks so I ask maple and they said I was spamming so my demon impact is the strongest so I keep using it. Please reply thank you.

  2. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi soh, once your badly wounded, you will need to consume HP potions. This is very unlikely for Demon Avenger.

  3. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi soh, Demon Slayer is worth leveling till Level 120 for its Link Skills :) It’s quite fun to play since you have to keep switching skills instead of spamming 1. Plus, you are able to jump high, leap high and glide in air ;)

  4. Mitch

    Hello. What skill do I use for grinding mobs? For example, dimension invasion.demon cry is awesome but let’s face it, the damage isn’t enough. What skill is good for such grinding maps?

  5. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Jedadaya, the damage values for Demon Impact isn’t updated, but mostly all the skills are present. The damage you are seeing is before Demon Impact was nerfed. Now its 330% after nerf (lost 70% damage) :(

  6. josh

    Hey ayumi, isn’t demon slayer job advancements 30,60,100 now? XD
    I think it is for GMS anyways since I’m doing the build and I’ll have it exactly matched at lvl 60

  7. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi XJ, damage is high, higher against some of MapleStory Legends such as Mercedes. But damage is not stable. Always need to maintain high HP for high damage.

  8. emoThinker

    Sorry for the late reply Ayumi, I was kind’a caught in something for sometime. Anyways, I have seen Orange mushroom’s DS update and for metamorphosis, they had added a cooldown on it. Boundless rage’s cooldown was decreased. I am curorently trying to find back the page where I saw these changes but I am having trouble finding it. So I apologize if I am causing confusion… T.T

  9. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks Seris for spotting the mistake! I have corrected the name from Demon Avenger to Demon Slayer.

  10. Seris

    Hey ayumi at the end of the 4th job explanation you put demon avenger instead of slayer. just thought i’m going to let you know C:

  11. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi KaiserNub, just spend all your SP into Hyper Skills on the moment you have access to them. Apply SP to those which is relevant to your job.

  12. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks randomboy for the correction! I’ll be updating Demon Cry Fury Cost from 60 to 30.

  13. KaiserNub

    Can you make a guide on their hyper skills, like what you recommend we add and when we get those skill points?

  14. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Issac, use 4th job skill Demon Impact for boss. Before using that as your primary attacking skill, casts Binding Darkness followed by Demon Cry. This helps in reducing enemy defense and accuracy (avoid their hits better). Replenish the Demon Cry every 15 second so each arm will reward you better EXP rate.

  15. Tsurugi

    Maybe emoThinker was referring to the Demon Slayer’s post-Unlimited skills’ data, now seen on services which have Unlimited (KMS, MSEA, EMS), and will soon be seen on services getting Spark (GMS, JMS, CMS, TMS).

    That aside, the DS’s tactical power makes him one of the best, if not the best bosser. And I believe he’s the best all-rounder.

  16. emoThinker

    Hey Ayumi, again loving your guide… xD But the Demon Slayer requires a bit of updating. Just a bit of a heads up for you. Thank you for the awesome guides!!!

  17. Isaac

    Hi ayumi, I have a demon slayer at 4th job. I went to buy barricade mastery 20 but everytime I use it, it fails. It failed 6 times already and I have don’t have much money left. What do I do?

  18. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Derek Chan, maybe GMS will unlock Demon Slayer when its holiday season or during the end of year or when they have some cool event.

  19. Derek Chan

    Hi there ayumi! I would like to ask when will there be the next release of Demon Slayer for maple story USA? :) it seems very appealing to me based on your comments! Im also plan to fund my Demon Slayer for Godly items! Any advise for funded Demon Slayers? :) Im currently full abyss sets but its still under cubing!

  20. Ayumilove Post author

    You’re most welcome lilazndorkiee. Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment :)

  21. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi DemonKidzz, Demon Avenger is slightly stronger than Demon Slayer when both are given the same equipment stats.

  22. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi lilazndorkiee, I deal the same damage around as you but at level 150 Demon Slayer since I’m using normal equips with only the weapon is potential :) After playing MapleStory for such a long time, I realized that once you obtain highest damage, the game feel boring and less entertaining. So at the end, I just equip with regular weapon and equip. I kinda regret that I burned 100+ miracle cubes just to get a godly potentialed item, which is not really worth it! If you still wish to continue this path of destruction, I have a safer way for you :) Check this guide out: http://ayumilove.net/best-maplestory-methods-to-increase-damage-guide/ which does not cost you real money.

  23. lilazndorkiee

    Hi Ayumi, I recently started playing maplestory and have been following your guide for Demon Slayer, right now I’m level 132 and grinding at LHC (if thats what its called) and a lot of people have commented saying my damage is pretty low, i do 20-35k to crocky the gatekeeper. Do you think that’s low, I am new and “unfunded”, do you have any ideas for ways that I could improve my damage :D? Thanks ^-^

  24. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Czin, try this guide out to improve your damage ;) http://ayumilove.net/best-maplestory-methods-to-increase-damage-guide/

    So, I was wondering if you were ever going to make a guide that helps newer players on gearing up and such? Im at level 110 with my DS and my damage range is depressing compared to the other people at my level.

    Hi Demonzen, Demon Slayer is stronger than Zen because Demon Slayer is actually a commander from the past, therefore, MapleStory Developers had made it such it is much stronger from the start, similarly to Kaiser which is stronger than a Dragon Knight :D It depends on the storyline on where they originate from. You can see another example where both Phantom Thief and Adventurer Thief are from the same class, but Phantom Thief have a nice history background fighting along with the Legendary Heroes. Therefore, it would be good to bump up his abilities abit to make him a little more unique and powerful than ordinary Explorer-Adventurer Thief.

    Hi Ayumi,
    Just a small correction. Black-hearted strength in 3rd job has a maximum level of 10, not 20. Thanks.

    Hi Ayumi!

    Speculating that the equivalent of GMS’s Champions update (Legends’ return) might be on on March 13 — if MSEA has its way of copy-pasta (ehem) matching GMS’s patch history. Resistance revamp (aka Rise Against update in GMS) is what followed.

    Yeah, by the way, have come across good Hyper Skill builds for this one-demon/man army yet? :) Would like to see a good one from you, although I may mix and match, as well. Cheers!

    Hi Jett Tan, MapleSEA (Asiasoft) is still lagging quite far compared to the rest of the other MapleStory Servers (Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, Global, Europe) where all of these already have Tempest Update but not available to MapleSEA. Having said that, the Demon Slayer release will be delayed for at least 3-6 months after Global receives it (since its the main that does the Korean translation). I guess MapleSEA would be combining multiple patches and releasing it in 1 big patch file (with revamps + new jobs). There are rumour stating that Asiasoft would only release new content when there are little MapleSEA player playing, a means to attract back customers/players. EDIT: I think Demon Slayer is already available in MapleSEA around 2012, unless they have locked it (made no more available for a period of time)

    Hi Night,
    It depends on your preference. If you don’t use that many active skills at once and only spam your primary attacking skills, it would be nice to have Leech Aura to heal yourself while attacking :)

    Hi Ikrae, Baricade Mastery does not only raise your minimum damage, but it also improves weapon attack, which in return boost all attacking skills. Demon Cry is not spammable unless you have constant supply of Fury which makes training a little difficult in maps with low mobs. I agree about the 20% EXP boost, it helps a lot in training. You can max both parallel or one at a time.

    Regarding the Binding Darkness, it has a passive ability to allow your attacks (any skills) to ignore a portion of enemy’s defense, its a nice bonus.

    a question, does Binding Darkness’s passive of Ignore enemy def apply to all skills or only itself?

    Just my 2 dollars worth, shouldn’t 1 level of Metamorphosis be added early? 6% dmg and hp for a minute should be pretty decent for some bossing. Also, Demon cry should be maxed 1st instead of barricade. I find that at lower levels ( 120 to 130 ) the mastery doesn’t really boost the training speed significantly, the 20% exp boost does make a better difference I believe.
