Kanna is one of MapleStory Sengoku’s Magician who wields a Fan and has a trusty companion (white fox) named Haku to accompany her in battle. Haku can transform into many forms including human-form. Kanna uses Spiritual Power instead of MP to perform special abilities. Her primary stat is INT (Intellect). GMS (Global MapleStory) released Kanna the Spirit Walker on February 27 2013 whereas JMS (Japan MapleStory) released Kanna, the Diviner on August 16 2012.

The word “exclusive” is more or less to reflect the origin of the content rather than it is only hosted in one version.

Kanna, Japan, June 21 1582, Honnou-ji Temple in Kyoto: After years of turmoil, Oda Nobunaga finally seized control of Japan, but his desire for power only grew. He sought immortality, and the temple of Honnou-Ji would bring it to him. He prepared an ancient ritual of reincarnation that would see him reborn as The sixth Sky Demon King, but word of the ritual got out, and the feudal lords stormed Honnou-Ji to stop Nobunaga while it was still possible. In the end, a young Spirit Walker named Kanna disrupted the ritual, and the would-be dark lord’s plans crumbled around him. But victory came at a cost. Just as the ritual was disrupted, a great pillar of light lurched forth from the temple and transported everyone to a strange world. Now, Kanna must conquer this strange place and regain lost strength and allies in order to stop the dark ambitions of Nobunaga’s followers! Kanna’s destiny was foretold at birth but fortunes can be deceiving. When an evil force threatens the safety of the empire, Kanna must join forces with a certain Samurai to prevent the summoning of an evil beyond imagining. This class uses a combination of Fan attacks, ghosts and a pet fox to battle evil in style.
- Male Kanna characters will have new face and hair options when created.
- The default female Kanna hair has been updated.
- Female Kanna characters that have their original hair can speak with Maple Administrator in the Event Hall to change to the updated hair.
- Male Kanna characters that have their original hair or face can speak with Maple Administrator in the Event Hall to change to the updated hair or face.
- Mana recovery has been adjusted from recovering 50 Mana every 4 seconds to recovering 4 Mana every second.
- Haku’s human form appearance has been updated.
- Kanna is a certain type of magician called an onmyouji. Although this word is sometimes translated as “diviner” or “exorcist,” these are incomplete definitions, since each of these things are only part what comprises onmyoudou – the skills that onmyouji practice. Since there is no simple, direct translation that fully covers all of the particular skills of an onmyouji does, we’re using the transliteration of the word.
- Although Kanna is female as far as the story is concerned, you’ll be able to play as female or male version of Kanna.
- After the tutorial at Honnou-ji, your journey will continue at Momijigaoka, a new part of the Mushroom Shrine area of Zipangu.
- Due to the nature of her power Kanna’s skills draw on mystical power differently from the way skills do for most natural denizens of Maple World. This prevents her from restoring through her powers through mana potions, but her expended mana will quickly regenerate on its own.
- Kanna must have one of her special fans equipped in order to use all of her skills.
- Kanna’s constant companion and partner in fighting evil is the spirit fox Haku.
- Since she is from ancient Japan and her primary language is Japanese, Kanna voice is in Japanese. Her animated video has subtitles, and she speaks when performing some skills. The male version of Kanna has also been given voiceovers when performing certain skills.
- Kanna and her Sengoku allies and enemies are able to communicate with the denizens of their new home through the magic of Maple World. Thus, their text dialogue will be translated.
- The Tot’s Know-How guide system has been enabled for Kanna.
- Fans for Kanna have been added to the wares of many weapon vendors.
- Each Kanna character has its own individual Cash Inventory not shared with other characters.

Kanna 2nd Job Skill Build: Everything maxed.
1. Burning Shikigami Haunting, Rock Yaksha, Shikigami Charm, Soul Bomb (1)
2. Haku Reborn (MAX)
3. Shikigami Charm (MAX)
4. Soul Bomb (MAX)
5. Nimbus Curse (MAX)
6. Burning Shikigami Haunting (MAX)
7. Fan Booster (MAX)
8. Rock Yaksha (MAX)
Rock Yaksha will be your primary attacking skill which is excellent in reeling in enemies (land and air) from far. However, it isn’t necessary to max it early since each level upgrade only increases by a mere 1% damage. Use Rock Yaksha instead of Shikigami Haunting if you can 1 hit kill them as its much faster to train that way. Soul Bomb is not that useful since the monster must be dead in order to benefit from the explosion. Level 1 Soul Bomb is sufficient since the explosion can draw attention of nearby dead enemies towards you so you can reel them in more effectively with Rock Yaksha. To effectively use Nimbus Curse, cast it when only there are many enemies around you! The poison mist only appears on the spot where there are enemies hit by the Nimbus Curse. You can max Fan Booster much later since the weapon speed does not seem significant. I couldn’t tell the amount of speed I gain with and without the buff since most of the kills are done in 1 hit.

Kanna 3rd Job Skill Build: Everything maxed except Soul Shear.
1. Frozen Shikigami Haunting, Spirit Corral, Tengu Strike, Kishin Shoukan (1)
2. Lifeblood Ritual (MAX)
3. Spirit Path (MAX)
4. Kishin Shoukan (10/20)
5. Tengu Strike (MAX)
6. Spirit Corral (MAX)
7. Kishin Shoukan (MAX)
8. Frozen Shikigami Haunting (MAX)
9. Mana Balance (MAX)
10. Blossom Barrier (MAX)
11. Soul Shear (0/15)
Add 1 SP (Skill Points) into Burning Shikigami Haunting as Level 1 gives maximum passive increase for 300 seconds. Tengu Strike will be your primary attacking skill and Spirit Corral will be your new pulling skill during Kanna’s 3rd Job. Spirit Corral is useless compared to Tengu Strike in damage aspect, but other players found it convenient when they can 1 hit kill monsters with it and lower delay compared to Tengu Strike. In early levels of 3rd Job, max two passive skills. Lifeblood Ritual (1st skill) replenishes 5% HP upon defeating an enemy and its only 5 levels. Spirit Path (2nd skill) improves critical rate and magic attack. Kishin Shoukan is an absolute must to max early as it increases your EXP rate tremendously by increasing the monster spawn you can kill in your training spot. Afterwards, I max Tengu Strike because it is your main attacking skill. Next up is Spirit Corral. Blossom Barrier is maxed second to last since it’s not really helpful for training. The reason why Soul Shear isn’t maxed is because it causes lag during gameplay when you kill hundred of monsters per minute with AOE skill. It’s a passive skill that is non-toggleable (unable to switch it off). In addition, Soul Shear doesn’t do much damage especially to bosses and not worth stopping to cast your 1v1 skills to activate the Soul Shear skill.

Then, max Monkey Spirits (use it to wet enemies with wine so they provide more EXP and better drops upon defeat).

MapleStory Kanna Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
I’m creating a new Kanna character, which hairstyle should I pick?
[ANSWER] There are 2 types of hair you can choose while creating your character. There is the short hair (cute Kanna Bob Cut Hair) and long hair (Kanna hair). Many players agree that the short hair looks better compared to long hair because if seen in-game, it does not look great as displayed in Kanna’s anime video trailer. The color to match with Bob Cut hair would be Blonde (yellow) as it resembled Claire from Claymore (Recommended anime to watch! – There is dual audio)
How to use Shikigami Haunting?
[ANSWER] During Kanna’s 1st Job, you will need to spam your Shikigami Haunting skill similarly to Aran and Demon Slayer. Upon reaching Kanna’s 2nd Job and above, you will need to just hold down the skill key to automatically attack 3 times in a row (with Burning, Frozen and Mighty Shikigami Haunting). The tutorial/cut-scenes were misleading about spam pressing Shikigami Haunting skill though.
I’m unable to use my Link Skill on my other characters!
Hi Kanna players, currently there is a bug with Kanna’s Elementalism (Link Skill) where it pops up this error message: you can only link once a day. Avoid using Cash Shop Quest Helpers that Tot’s gives you to get your link skill early as this might bug Kanna Link skill. Complete quest normally without rushing otherwise this will occur for Level 70 and above (until GMS Developer fixes it). There are some players who are able to link their Kanna Elementalism skill to their favorite characters (Angelic Buster) without performing the above. Take precaution!
Trouble using Sand Witch skill
[QUESTION] The skill where some Sand Creature “posses” you and you can only use your Normal Attack. When I use the skill, I can click as much as I want, but nothing will happen. All I see is that ugly drawn witch behind me, doing nothing! [ANSWER] Just hold DOWN attack key.
How to raise Kannas Elementalism skill to level 2?
[QUESTION] How do u raise it to level 2? [ANSWER] You raise Elementalism from Level 1 to Level 2 by reaching Level 120.
Is Kanna worth leveling?
[ANSWER] Yes, if you wish to benefit from Kanna’s Link Skill that provides +10% Damage to the linked character (The stat is from Level 2 Elementalism).
I’m stuck at Kanna Level 50 quest. Help!
[QUESTION] The quest ‘Scaling the el nath mountains’ is confusing me. I went to el nath but still nothing. I also tried speaking to Alcaster and going up the cliff’s but nothing happens. Does anybody here know what to do? [ANSWER] First, talk to Neinheart at Ereve to get the quest starting or get quest from light-bulb. You MUST talk to Neinheart first, otherwise you will not be able to see Naoe Kanetsugu NPC (Japanese Samurai in Blue Armor) at Orbis! If you are at Ereve, take a boat to Orbis. Once you have landed at Orbis Station, exit the area and find the NPC who is just standing outside the portal on the left side where you came out. After you have done that, you will unlock the next quest “To Each His Own” which requires you to talk to Alcaster located in El Nath on the most right-side of the potion shop. This unlocks a new quest “Red Snow 1” which requires you to defeat 100 Jr Yeti and 100 Dark Jr Yeti.
Is Kannas fan 1h or 2h?
[QUESTION] A lot of sources say its 2-handed weapon but its strange to find someone who holds a fan with 2 hands. [ANSWER] In Nexon Official Website, its stated clearly that the fan is a 2-handed weapon.
How do I equip Haku with my unused fan?
[QUESTION] I was wondering if anyone knew how to equip Haku’s fan? [ANSWER] Open your equipment tab (E) then click the Haku button. Drag and drop the fan that you want Haku to wear.
Does giving Haku a weapon increase my stats?
[QUESTION] Is there any benefit to this or is it just for looks? [ANSWER] Only stats from Potential such as bonus (STR, DEX, INT, LUK) or Magic Attack is applied. Other stats such as +Critical % does not apply.
What are the 4th Job Skills that requires Mastery Book?
Kanna 4th Job skills that requires Mastery Book are Vanquisher’s Charm, Orochi, Falling Sakura, Monkey Spirits, Binding Tempest, Bellflower Barrier, Kasen and Breath of the Unseen.
What mystery mastery book should I get from the event?
You should get Kasen (Kanna 4th Job Skill Mastery Book) from the event’s mystery mastery book because it is the most expensive book and its essential in raising Kanna’s overall damage for leveling up purposes.
Can Kanna equip weapons that look like Fan?
[ANSWER] No. Fans such as Hinamaro Fan, Korean Fan, zhugeliang wand are not fan type.
Shikigami haunting stacking?
[QUESTION] Can you stack the elemental skills similarly to Paladin charge skills? [ANSWER] No, Kanna’s elements does not stack with one another. Pick the strongest depending on your job advancement. For instance, if you are 4th Job Kanna, pick Mighty Shikigami Haunting.
Demon’s Fury vs Spirit Corral. Which one to max over the other?
[QUESTION] I was wondering who maxed which over the other any why? I’ve been seeing many people lean more towards Demon’s Fury but I’ve head some good arguments for both skills.
- [Spirit Corral Debate] When you get to maps that aren’t jesters/aliens, pulling them in with Spirit Corral makes it much easier to Tengu Strike them. Also its a lot easier to use to draw mobs where you want them to be before spamming Shikigami Haunting as the finishing kill. Demon’s Fury (aka Sand witch) seems more trouble than its worth as you have to have 2 keys devoted to it and it has an enormous cooldown for lackluster damage.
- [Demon’s Fury Debate] Demon’s Fury is like a backup ultimate while rotating between the 2nd job ultimate, and the 4th job ultimate. Not only is it fast, but it’s very powerful. It kills a large range of monsters pretty quickly, in a hurricane-type fashion. It’s cool down makes it a secondary mobbing skill, however. Demon’s Fury easily fills up the map with soul beads really fast, so if you are going to use a lot Soul Shear go with Demon’s Fury.
- [Summary] It all comes down to utility since neither one will be used for damage with Shikigami Haunting which outshines both skill upon reaching Kanna’s 4th Job Advancement. Spirit Corral has better utility as it draws enemies into range of your primary attacking skill.
Does speed infusion work with Kannas attacks?
[ANSWER] Only some skills benefit from Speed Infusion.
Where to get Kanna Level 120+ Weapons?
Currently these weapons can be obtained from Gachapierrot/Marvel/Monster Drops.
Where to get Mastery Books for Kanna?
Kanna’s Mastery Books can be purchase from Merchant Shops using meso similar to the ones sold by Leafre NPC Mastery Book Seller. The Gachapierrot now contains Mastery Books for the following Kanna skills, rank 20 or 30: Vanquisher’s Charm, Orochi, Falling Sakura, Monkey Spirits, Bind, Bellflower Barrier, Kasen, and Illusion-Haku.
[NOTE] Purchase Gachapon Tickets and Remote Gachapon Tickets from Cash Shop. Then use in Gachapierrot to redeem Kanna’s Weapon and Mastery Book. Enter the Cash Shop, select the Etc. tab, then go to the Game subsection to find them. Buy in bundles and save!
MapleStory Kanna Update Patch Error Solution
Issue 0: Unable to Connect into Login Server
If you are a MapleStory Senior who have not being playing MapleStory for few years or months, and later to find a nice job like Kanna being released and want to try it out, you download MapleStory Full Client, install it and later encounter this error message “Unable to Connect to Login Server”. When you check with your friends about whether MapleStory server is active or try here at SouthPerry GMS Server Status, all the world seems ONLINE instead of OFFLINE. So whats next? The error message here is a little misleading but still hits a nail. You need to disable your anti-virus and firewall temporarily and try again. If it works, re-enable them after you are login to your character. But don’t be happy yet as you might encounter the infamous HackShield Initialization Error 0x00000000 (0) as discussed below with some solution provided.
Issue 1: Failed to Delete Directory
You encounter a pop-up box with the error message that says “Failed to Delete Directory” after running the launcher and patching the game for the Kanna content. Then it stated that you would need to download and reinstall the entire game. If you have this exact same error at the end of the install, remove that Temp Folder from the game folder and run the launcher again. Go into the main MapleStory folder (C:\Nexon\MapleStory), there will be only 3 folders inside of the main folder, Black Cipher, Hackshield and a Temp Folder with a name similar to this one: etwejxjl.$$$ (random characters with a dot and dollar signs suffixed). The Temp folder, regardless of it’s name, will have dollar signs prefixed in the name $$$$ Transfer TEMP folder to your Desktop and run the game again. If it works, you can safely delete that folder. If you happen to have 2 TEMP folders labeled as .$$$ in them, take away the empty one and it worked, otherwise remove both.
Issue 2: Mob.wz Corrupted
You encounter a pop-up box with the following message: “Mob.wz The patch file is corrupt. Please try again. If the same error occurs, please delete all previous MapleStory game files and re-install the game client from maplestory.nexon.net” Just re-install MapleStory to fixed Mob.wz corruption.
Issue 3: Still unable to install Kanna Patch into MapleStory
1. Uninstall MapleStory before deleting C:\Nexon\MapleStory folder.
2. Re-download the 128v.
3. After installing it, used the manual patch for 129v.
4. Wait for it to stop at ADMIN CHATLOG\
5. Terminate the process by using the administrator window (CTRL + ALT + DEL)
6. Run the game from the GameLauncher.exe in your MapleStory Installation folder.
[NOTE] The problem might lie within the new client (v129.2) that’s presently on the website. Do not download the latest MS from the website, just install the older version v128 and then perform the prepatch.
Issue 4: Directory was Not Found Error Message.
If you encounter a pop-up box with the following error message “Directory was Not Found” after patching, closed the patcher. Visit maplestory.nexon.net official website and logged in. Launched the game from the WEBSITE. Upon successfully launching through the website, exit Maplestory and retry the regular GameLauncher.exe from your computer.
Issue 5: My Kanna character disconnected after entering a portal
The portal itself isn’t broken, probably one of your files is corrupt. I just tried going through every single portal in the tutorial and after the tutorial without a crash. You’ll probably have to re-install MapleStory if you’re crashing, that’s what I did. However, if that still fails see Issue 6 for the next solution.
Issue 6: My Kanna is stucked in a beginner place. How to get out?
If you tried to enter a map from the beginner place of Kanna (Momijigaoka), then disconnected and now stuck and can’t log in on it, you can do the following steps to get out of this sticky situation: Exit MapleStory Application and let it sit for approximately 5 minutes. Then try login back on and everything worked fine. If this issue still persist, you have 3 methods of exiting Kanna map:
- Use Mercedes Link Skill Map to teleport out of Momijigaoka Area.
- Use Cash Shop Teleport Rock to teleport out of Kanna Beginner Training Ground after you have done the necessary quest in that area.
- Earn at least 5000 mesos in the training dojo then use the dimensional mirror to go to NLC (New Leaf City), and from there, take the subway to Kerning City.
[Brief bug summary] Kanna char DCs and gets locked after trying to enter the 2nd portal after the tutorial. Seems others are DCing in the new town, and I’m guessing that portal leads to the new town. [Steps to reproduce Issue 6] Create Kanna char, skip tutorial, go into first portal with pop-up quests completed. Finish quests in next map and enter portal. You will DC and if you try to log on you will DC again.
Issue 7: Hackshield Initialization Error : 0x0000000 (0)
Another copy of Maplestory is already running. Please close all instances and try launching again.” The error message is very misleading. Even though you restarted your computer before running MapleStory.exe, and later check your TaskManager only to find 1 instance of MapleStory, you will still get stuck with this error. Below is a list of steps you must do to bypass this error. It took me around 5-6 hours to figure it out.
- Add MapleStory and HackShield to your Anti-Virus exception list so it does not prevent it from running them. If you do not know how to add, simply disable the Windows Firewall, 3rd-Party Anti-Virus and Anti-Security and run the game. With your protection disabled, its advisable not to browse through any unknown websites that might be infected with viruses. This first step will bypass the first MapleStory Block that reads something like this: Unable to Connect Server at this time. Please check whether the server is under maintenance or your firewall.
- If still fail, set your GameLauncher.exe compatibility mode to Windows XP SP 3 or Windows 7 (both tested by me and it works). Windows XP SP 2 failed to work though. Do not set the Compatiblity Mode for MapleStory.exe otherwise you will receive this error message: HackShied Initialization Error : 0x00000004 (4) = Error cccurs when the game client is executed in the Compatibility Mode provided by Windows XP. Game execution in Compatibility Mode is judged as a user with ill intentions, so program must be ended and restarted (value = 0x004) Please send the detailed information through. If you get that error message, just click the X button to close it, do not need click OK to send any personal information that might be save behind the scenes.
- Disable any Microsoft Loopback Adapter (Right-click on Network Icon on the Windows Start Panel, Click Open Network and Sharing Center, Click Change Adapter Settings, If you see multiple Loopback Adapters, disable all of them by right-clicking and click properties, and then disable.)
- Most important of all, do not use BlackCipher from maplestory.nexon.net, I have tested it and it did not work (The blackcipher.aes should be at least 2537KB and the BlackCall.aes should be around 290KB). By doing a manual update from hsupdate itself, it somehow downloaded the latest BlackCall.aes and BlackCipher.aes from the server) only then I was able to bypass this infamous HackShield Initialization Error 0x0000000. Those who play CombatArms will face this issue as well since its protected by HackShield and BlackCipher. MapleStory Developers shouldn’t implement these measures as it blocks legitimate players to logging on the game.
Issue 8 : MapleStory Disconnection Every 1 Minute Exact Or Few Minutes
I tested GMS MapleStory with an online stopwatch and found out that MapleStory always disconnect me after 1 minute. If you are lucky, between 5 minutes to 30 minutes. I have not found a solution to this error. If you do know, please share your solution by posting a comment below. Below are things I have tested on Windows 7 Ultimate Operating System:
0. Disable Firewall (3rd Party and Windows) + Anti-Virus.
1. Tried different worlds (Bera, Scania, Zenith) still dc within 1 minute.
2. Tried bypass BlackCipher with HInjector + bc_bypass.dll
3. Terminated BlackCipher.aes from TaskManager.
4. Tried login into different characters (Kanna, Explorer, Cygnus).
5. Tried changing compatibility mode for GameLauncher.exe
6. Tried changing compatibility mode for HackShield exe applications.
[TEMPORARY-SOLUTION] Change Channel before the 1 minute duration expires! Example, kill 10 monsters, change to next channel, and repeat. [PERMANENT-SOLUTION] For Windows 7 users, try installing MapleStory under C:\Program Files (x86)\Nexon\MapleStory folder instead of C:\Nexon\MapleStory folder.
