Evan Skill Build Guide Versions
Latest: MapleStory Evan Skill Build Guide V2
Evan is not one of the heroes that fought the Black Mage personally, he is part of an ancient line of dragon masters that was nearly wiped out by the Black Mage when he fought the legendary heroes. who has a flying dragon that fights along with him. Evan’s primary stat is INT (Intellect) while secondary stat is LUK (Luck). Evan is the only class that does not depend on job advancement, rather towards to the growth of his/her dragon. Each growth introduces a new skill that he or the dragon unlocks. Some new skills are obtain via quests, therefore you will gain more SP within each growth compared to what normally other jobs get 3 SP per level. [NOTE] Some Evan skills requires NX Cash Mastery Book to fully max the skill. If you intend to level up pass Level 100, do consider purchasing them. Otherwise, training will be miserably difficult with half-baked skills against higher level monsters.
It all started when Freud/Freed (a heroic magician and researcher) had a great desire of finding a way to have dragons and human live together peacefully. He meets Afrien, King of Onyx Dragon who shares the same philosophical love for all lifeforms. Both took this opportunity to pledge each other by bounding themselves with powerful rituals and spells to create a Spirit Pact. Under this pact, 2 spirits become 1 resulting an unbreakable bond even past death and also making them more powerful than being apart.
Then Black Mage came into Maple World and discovered that Onyx Dragon has great power which he can exploit. On one night while Freud was away, Black Mage meets with the great Onyx Dragon King, Afrien. He asked Afrien to join him and betray Freud and humans. He promised Afrien that working together with him makes both of them even more powerful than they could ever imagine. King of Dragon explained that the source of Onyx’s power was from the love and trust from Spirit Pact. He could not betray his friend Freud nor would break Spirit Pact if he could.
Black Mage researched a way to break the Spirit Pact forcefully and eventually came up with a possible solution by trapping Afrien’s partner (Freud) in ice forever. He launched a devastating attack on both of them and succeeded in separating them before he cast his ice curse on Freud. Afrien threw himself in front of his friend to protect him. Though the plan was not completely successful, Black Mage plan to break the Spirit Pack has been achieved. Afrien had left behind a dragon egg, and as long as this egg existed there is a chance where a future hero who comes along and re-establish the Spirit Pack. Freud escaped with the egg and hid it where it might eventually be found.
Evan, the only child of a pig-farmer found the Onyx Dragon Egg and took care of it until it hatches and matures to an adult Onyx Dragon. Both of them reforge old bonds and Spirit Pact. Onyx Dragon will rise again with his fellow companion and use this power for justice and peace! NOTE: Evan wasn’t the person who fought against Black Mage a century ago with the other 4 MapleStory Legendary Heroes.
