MapleStory Illium Skill Build Guide

MapleStory Lef Magician Illium MapleStory Illium (메이플스토리 일리움) – The Wings of Briliance is a new magician job to be added on August 10, 2017 in KMS (Korea MapleStory). Hundreds of years ago, Lef race uses their magical wings to create brilliant civilization. The Lef race was divided into 2 groups. The Wooden Lef wanted to coexist with other races whereas the High Lefs wanted to conquer all. This results in a civil war. After the war ended, the surviving Wooden Lefs hid within the deepest part of Grandis. Illium is one of the descendant of the surviving Wooden Lefs. Although he doesn’t posses any innate magic abilities of the Lef race, he is a genius when it comes to working with machines. A crisis occurred and has led him to used an ancient crystal hidden in town to gain magical abilities. Having known that this item is the only hope to bring salvation to Wooden Lef, he began his search of the Ancient God’s Sanctuary in the Maple World, while avoiding the enemies of the Crystal to save the Wooden Lef race. Illium’s ancinet Crystal resonates with magic abilities that enhances allies and deals enormous damage to enemies. When the Crystal is filled up with magic, Illium can use it to temporarily use powerful skills and fly freely. He also uses his mechanical creations to aid him in battle. Illium is part of the Lef race. Therefore, he does not share his Cash Shop wardrobe with any other class.

Illium Pros and Cons

Pros

  • *Share your pros on this job!*
  • Has a lot of burst damage especially 5th job skills.
  • Has decent mobbing skills starting from 1st job.
  • Percent damage starting from 3rd job is very high.
  • Has decent support skills.
  • This class is closely based to a Protoss race from Starcraft in terms of technology and skills.
  • Plays an epic music when using Glory Wings skill

Cons

  • *Share your cons on this job!*
  • Does not have much damage lines.
  • Bossing is not that great as you will need crystal skills for maximum DPM (Damage Per Minute)
  • Glory Wings skill not quite useful for bossing.
  • Mortal Wing Beat can only be used once per Glory Wings.
  • Need stacks/charges to use crystal skills, which cost a lot. The stack system is similar to Xenon, Kinesis and Demon Slayer.
  • Illium does not have skill to instantly refill the stacks/charges. Other classes have skills that instantly refills the points or allows usage of skills without using any points for a short period of time. Illium has a skill called “Fast Charge” which increases the stacks by 100% but there is a 2 minute cooldown. Buff Duration as Inner Ability is a must.

Illium Storyline

Meet Illium, clever with machinery but lacking his race’s magical skills. An encounter with an ancient artifact changes his destiny forever. Great talent and potential awaken a brilliant hero. Illium is a descendent of the magical Flora race from Grandis, a parallel world created at the same time as Maple World, and separated from it by only a thin barrier. Hundreds of years ago, the Flora created a beautiful civilization using ancient nature magic that flowed through their brilliant wings. Brilliance has a cost and the Flora paid for it with civil war. The race split into two factions—the High Flora, who believe that they are superior to other races and must conquer everyone in Grandis, and the Verdant Flora who want to coexist in harmony with the other races. When the dust settled, the Verdant Flora had been driven deep into hiding, where they have remained for decades. It is here in the small town of Sanctuary that we find Illium. As a Verdant Flora himself, his blood dictates that he should have the brilliant magical abilities of his ancestors. Unfortunately, he does not. He is an extremely clever boy with machinery, but his lack of magical knowledge causes him to struggle and fall behind his peers, who tease him for this. At the Crystal Academy, he meets the headmistress Agate, who sees something in him that others do not. While under her training, Illium encounters the Crystal, an ancient artifact that Agate has been protecting since the war. The Crystal is the Verdant Flora’s only hope of salvation. The Crystal awakens a newfound power within Illium, granting him magical abilities and transforming everything about him. His physical appearance and personality change, and he becomes a natural leader who devotes himself to the salvation of the Verdant Flora.

    This class is closely based to a Protoss race from Starcraft in terms of technology and skills.
    Plays an epic music when using Glory Wings skill

    LOL ayumilove you crazy woman these pros XD

  3. amal

    i am gonna make one just cuz it can fly :P

  4. CelestialOne

    This looks awesome! looking forward to this character getting released in GMS. If only i could understand korean, i would be playing KMS. Love the site, its the best one when it comes to needing information beyond the basic information thats already all over the place. Way better then the wiki/wikia.

  5. Ayumilove Post author

    @Seregios: Thanks for taking the time to post your comment! I’ll see how to make a brief version of it XD

  6. seregios

    Based on the skill descriptions and footage. Feel free to make a short version ayumi. I’m just explaining the cons/negatives.

    Positives:
    A lot Burst damage especially his 5th job skills.
    mobber but cadena is probably still faster because of movement.
    Percent damage from his skills are very high starting from 3rd job.
    Got pretty nice support skills.
    Class must be based of the protoss race from starcraft. They share similar lores and the technology/skills are almost the same.
    Got epic music during glory wings.

    negatives:
    Not a lot of damage lines.
    Needs a little setup especially for bossing.

    Bossing is bad or decent. Because you need the crystal skills for max dpm.
    Glory wings not that useful during bossing.
    Mortal wing beat can only be used once per glory wings.

    Need stacks/charges to use the crystal skills. which cost A LOT.

    The stacks/charges is like demon slayer,kinesis,pre-revamp aran and Xenon with their seperate points/combo/charge thing.

    But DSlayer,Kin,aran and especially xenon got skills that either reduce the points used, instant refills the points or make sure none is used for a short period of time.

    Illium got none of those skills not even on his hyper skills which means he cannot spam crystal skills for long. <–main point

    Of course, you gain the charges/stack faster with each new job adv. but it's still tedious.

    Illium however got a skill "Fast Charge". that increases the stacks/charges receive +100%. You still need to spam skills and it's only 10sec duration with a 2min cooldown?! <– main point.
    Which is one of the reason why buff duration innerability is recommended.

    In other words, Illium got a worst aran combo pre-revamp mechanic with no reliable skills/passives to back it up.

  7. CherryKakyoin

    That link skill seems like a MUST for BaM, simply too good.

  8. Anchovies

    @Elson it’s most likely coming to every server.

  9. Elson

    I wonder if this will come to MapleSEA also?

  10. Philip

    Lol just came out but nice guide.

  11. Anchovies

    Edit** By god mode im referring to his skill that allows him to fly. He takes no damage in it apparently. Also he can fly.

  12. Anchovies

    Pros: Flashy, great mobbing, god mode at 3rd job, alot of summons to help with mobbing and bossing. High burst damage in god mode

    Cons: Summons AI can screw you over in terms of dpm, alot of micro managing, apparently has 2 level 200 hyper skills (?) Might be a bug.
