    @Winter Wolf: Thanks for your feedback! I’ll be updating Kanna Questline (changing Level 120->140)

  2. Winter Wolf

    Hi Ayumi, just coming to say that I just leveled to 140 and ive received the quest “Unexpected Message” which was supposed to come at 120. So its not a bug! Just thought I could share c:

  3. PapaGrimly

    @Rosylea: If you are looking at GMS, then you may notice that Nine-Tailed Fury was changed into a beginner skill in GMS, while MSea left it as a fourth job skill. As a result, you don’t place any points into it in fourth job; it’s already maxed.

    It shouldn’t be listed as a fourth job skill for GMS, though, so kudos to you for noticing that error.

  4. Rosylea

    Hey, I realised you didn’t include Nine-Tailed Fury as a skill to be maxed under 4th job. Is it to be maxed last? Thanks so much for your guide! Love it :)

  5. Badydontlie

    i dont know how to equip my kanna lvl 130 some help would be great

    @Mew: Hi Mew, for skills that has cooldown, I placed it on the far side (example: at the insert, home, page up, page down, delete, end buttons).
    All skills serve their purpose depending on the environment you are training or bossing.
    For example: I’ll still use Tengu Strike in 4th job if monsters are on multiple platforms above me.

    Below are the list of skills I used when playing Kanna with the key slots at 4th job as reference:
    T – Macro Buff Skills (Maple Warrior, Fan Booster, Haku Reborn)
    Insert – Channeling: Lightning (4th job) = use this based on monster element weakness
    Home – Channeling: Ice (3rd job) = use this based on monster element weakness
    Page Up – Channeling: Fire (2nd job) = use this based on monster element weakness
    Page Down – Nine Tailed Fury (4th job)
    End – Orochi (4th job)
    Delete – Nimbus Curse (2nd job)
    SHIFT – MP Potion
    CTRL – HP Potion
    C – Pickup = loot meso/items.
    F – Shikigami Haunting (1st job) = used with Channeling. for regular training.
    D – Vanquisher Charm (4th job) = for bossing (mini-elite bosses / big boss like Zakum)
    G – Tengu Strike (3rd job) = best for multi platform monster hit.
    V – Soul Shear (3rd job) = best for mobbing in Evolution System (Level 100 dungeon)
    Z – Ether Pulse (1st job) = teleport towards monster.
    X – Spirit Corral (3rd job) = cluster enemies to be comboed with Tengu Strike.

    Hello! I just reached 4th job today and I’d like to know which Kanna skills should I ditch since I use up my 1-9s for attacks and I feel like I’m hoarding up too much. It would be really helpful to let me know which attack skills are mediocre at higher levels. Thank you, Ayumi, and great guide!

    Hi, I just reached 4th job and I would like to know which skills I should ditch (from 1st to 4th) since I use my 1-9s for my attacks and I feel like they’re hoarding up too much space! Thank you so much and I love your guide!

    @Cins: Use auto-pot from pet? Otherwise, try to upgrade your equipment to have better defenses and create a different strategy in mobbing enemies. Upgrading your weapon to allow 2-3 hits to kill enemies will prevent them from retaliating unless you’re sandwiched between them and getting physical bump damage.

  9. Cins

    Hey, I’m lvl 137 Kanna, and I’m just trying to do some quests to level up. But dang, after using kishin shoukan, (for faster training) I keep dying because they hit really high, and my Haku can’t heal me up fast enough… Are there any tips you suggest so I wont be dying so much?! I love Kanna but danggg. I dont want to farm going up and down, i love the fast spawn. :(

  10. Jake Cheng

    For some reason, i have 5 extra sp on my 4th job. I don’t know why though. Everything is maxed out and i don’t know whats up.

  11. Ayumilove Post author

    @Winter Wolf: Thanks for the heads up! I’ll perform the correction on the Nine Tail Fury :)
    I’m not sure about the changes on the current Level 120 quest as I have done it long time ago.

  12. Winter Wolf

    For MSEA 4th job skill build, is it a typo or is it not necessary to max nine tail fury and just leave it at 1sp?
    Also, i havent received my lv 120 quest even though im alrd at lv 125, could this be a bug?

  13. Ayumilove Post author

    @Tsurugi: Thanks for the note! I have added the missing max level for Nine Tailed Fury for MSEA!

  14. Ayumilove Post author

    @Mizuki: How about the other skills in 2nd and 3rd jobs?

  15. Mizuki

    The 1st job one looks right now, definitely should be 19/20 for Clay Yaksha.
    I’d mistakenly left out Ether. >.>

  16. Tsurugi

    Hi Ayumi,

    An addition for the MSEA Kanna skill Nine-Tailed Fury:

    Level 10: Mana Cost: 50, Damage: 900%, Max Enemies Hit: 15, Number of Attacks: 6, +20% Continuous damage for 120 sec
    Cooldown: 500 sec.

    As always, your skill builds are smashing. Keep it up! :)

  17. Ayumilove Post author

    @Yuki: If you are not using it as your main, you do not need to be bother about it, unless it gets you frustrated all day, you could spend some ACash to reset that particular skill.

  18. Ayumilove Post author

    @Mizuki: Thanks for the note. Could you let me know what are the skills that aren’t max on your side from 1st to 4th job advancement? And the SP too for those particular skills (e.g. Ether Pulse (19/20)). Just need to confirm the values are correct.

  19. Mizuki

    They added Haku’s Heart for 1st Job (+5 speed) and Advanced Haku Reborn in 3rd for MSEA.
    Didn’t realize it during 1st job, hence I didn’t get to max out Ether. TT__TT

  20. Yuki

    Something is wrong with the SP guide, I can’t maxed my Perfect Haku as it requires skill point from Advanced Haku.., so now I’m stuck ._. I can SP reset it but is it worth it?

    It’s just a mule acct for link .

  21. Ayumilove Post author

    @MysticisM: Thanks for the note. I have added the skill name “Fan Booster” for MSEA.

  22. Ayumilove Post author

    @Anon: The Kanna Skill Build Guide should remain the same. Nothing much changed for Kanna except for the mastery level increase on one skill and decrease at the other.

  23. Anon

    Hi Ayumi can u please please update skill build asap? I wanna play but dont know what to add. especially when nine tail fury has been moved to fourth job, it messes everything up

  24. LimitBreaks

    @Jin That because the nine tail fury has been moved to 4th job.

  25. Jin

    Hi i had recently created a kanna in global and skip the tutorial and i realize that i dint have the skill nine tail rage anywhere. Has that skill been removed or you must do the tutorial to get that skill?

  26. Ayumilove Post author

    @Aslamak: Yeah, thanks for the notice! I’ll be updating it. :)

  27. Aslamak

    Msea is having hayato/kanna update. Will you be updating this guide then?

  28. Tan Leon

    I hav a lvl 100 xenon and a lvl 100 kanna, which should I continue played as main character

  29. Cheryl Goh

    Hi i was wondering if u could help me because i accidentally added the rock yaksha so now i can’t use frozen shikigami please help!

  30. MysticisM

    For second job skill – Radiant Peacock, in MSEA that skill name Fan Booster

  31. Winter Wolf

    Hi ayumi, I’m currently lvl 121 and I’m wondering, any idea why haven’t i received my lvl 120 storyline quest? Specifically the quest “Unexpected Message”. I know the requirements are to be at least lvl 120 and to have “Chaos Rising” completed. I have checked my quest log and is very sure that I’ve completed it but i still haven’t gotten my next quest? Also, I’ve also tried going to Momijigaoka to talk to Princess Sakuno but there’s still no available quest.. Any help? Thanks in advance!

  32. Winter Wolf

    Hi ayumi, I’m currently lvl 121 already but any idea why haven’t I received the storyline quests for level 120? Specifically the quest “Unexpected Message”. I know the requirement is to be level 120 and have “Chaos Rising” quest completed. I have checked my quest log and is sure i have completed that quest but i still haven’t got my next quest.. Any help? Thanks in advance!

  33. Fish

    Hmmm.. do i cap rock yasha at 1 or add the remaining sp to it ?

  34. xDemonHerex

    There seems to be a bug for Kanna with Esther Pulse where the game crashes after using it alot, is GMS going to fix this?

  35. Ayumilove Post author

    @ossyria: Could you check the quest in the bulb icon (located on the left side of your screen) and also the quest window? Maybe they have already shorten the quest or perhaps the quest has specific level range to complete. If its an essential storyline quest, you will still be able to complete it, just that you won’t get much experience since you are a high level.

  36. Ossyria

    I had a problem with Kanna, while doing her quests I realized something was wrong and it seemed like I had somehow skipped like 5 or 6 of her quests and straight onto the “Elnath Mountain” quest or something where Oda’s forces were sighted near Elnath or w/e

  37. Allie

    Can bellflower and blossom barrier’s stack on top of each other for a protection and damage buff?

  38. mm

    i’m gotting a prob! i now have a lv 55 Kanna.But something wrong with the skill Haku Reborn(lv 10).As in lv 10 but the amount buff is at lv 1.this is really bugging me.

  39. Ayumilove Post author

    @Kim: Yes, it decrease monster spawn time instead of decrease monster spawn. For example, if you killed a monsters and it took 10 seconds for all monsters to respawn, it will take less than 10 seconds with Kishin Shoukan summoned. Approximately 2-3 seconds lesser. Therefore, you can kill more enemies within that period of training :D Hope that makes sense.

  40. Kim

    I noticed your Kishin Shoukan description states that it “decreases” monster spawn in the map. Which is correct, decrease or increase?

  41. SeikoNya

    Hi Ayumi. I noticed that Kanna seems like one of the strongest classes in the game, having 2 binds, amazing haku’s buffs, item/meso drop rates, mob spawn rates, amazing mobbing, no need for any potions, and so on.
    But I haven’t seen many people who actually mains Kanna, and most people use her for utility.
    Could you please address all the down-sides to Kanna? Like all the 2ndary fan handicaps and all that.
    I love your website, keep up the good work!

  42. heezji

    im now lvl51 had a quest that i need to return to mimagaoki but the mirror of dimension only allow to go zinpangu the farthest. please teach me how..

  44. Ayumilove Post author

    @Ahrie9tails: Thanks for your feedback, it will help other Kanna players who face similar issues :) I maxed Spiral Coral because I leveled up without training in Link 3 (more to Party Quests).

  45. Ahrie9tails MSEA Aquila

    Ayumi there somethings i need to tell everyone about kanna.

    1’st: In order to see the true potential of Fan booster, you need to hold down Shikigami Hunting button however don’t hold down for too long (same as Vanquisher’s Charm and Soul Shear) as it may cause a bug that the player will not dealt any damage even thought skills is used.The only way to debug is to move left/right/up a rope. Using another skill will not debug.

    2’nd: It’s best to max Demon’s fury instead of Spiral Corral as it dealt more AoE (Area of Effect) damage as it’s a semi full map skill best to used in Link 3.

    3’rd: Speed Infusion only applies to Shikigami Hunting and Vanquisher’s Charm

  46. Michele

    Jen, thats a bug. I asked the gm they told me is the bug problem. It also occured to me after the red update. My max attack range and minimum range has a 200k range difference and before it was only around 20k difference. My dmg is unstable now. You should ibox this issue. So they will start working on it.

  47. Alex

    hello ayumi does auto pet buff work with the kishin monster spawner skill? just a curious question

  48. Jen

    Hi Ayumi, I have a question. My kanna has been behaving really weird. Mainly because my attack range has a HUGE difference. Huge as in a difference of 15k between my max attack range and my minimum attack range? Any idea what’s causing this? I have already maxed everything based on your build.

  49. Michele

    Hey guys, will kanna mana increase from 100 to 200? I think i read it somewhere about this but not sure how? Can anyone pls explain that to me?

  50. Jay

    Hey Ayumi, u said that haku fan’s potential works ONLY for stats% and magic att%, I just wanna confirm again if it is ONLY those 2 potentials. Thx

  51. TheKishinHoe

    Pt stats will be added as soon as you equip fan on Haku and are permanent as long asfan is on Haku. When Haku casts Hakus blessing, 1/2 mark from hakus fan is added to yourself

  52. Michele

    I tried. Cant. It has to be equip on kanna in order to have full bonus. Btw from your website stated the fans that haku use only takes in ptt stats and not the base stats, is it true?

  53. Ayumilove Post author

    @Michele: I have not tried that out. So I couldn’t confirm if it would provide the full bonus when Haku equips it. Need Kanna player help to verify :D

  54. Michele

    Ayumi, does empress set give the full bonus if my haku equip the dragon tail fans instead of my kanna?

  55. Ayumilove Post author

    @TheKishinHoe: Thanks for the notice! I have already corrected them. Previously there was another player who spotted that too but I forgot to rectify it :(

  56. Game

    if i use the think on 4 job that give more exp my party members get more exp too?

  57. Jay

    No problem ayumi, though i wished that they were as before, haha

  58. TheKishinHoe

    I was wondering why you listed Max MP increase as one of the recommended Kanna hypers. I thought that it did not affect their mana bar?

  59. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks Jay for the correction! I’ll update now.

  60. Jay

    Bellflower Hyper Skills unlocking levels for Boss dmg and extra duration are also the other way around

  61. Jay

    Kanna’s Hyper Skill
    Vanquisher charm – Reinforce and Extra strike unlocking levels are swapped
    ie Reinforce at lvl143 (Not lvl183) and Extra Strike at lvl183 (Not lvl143)

  62. Zordinary

    Does the Kanna need a lot of funding to be successful? or at least in Ratio term of view, does it need a lot of funding? Can you tell me which mages need the least and which need the most fundings? I have seen one of your other reviews on Luminous saying that it doesnt need too much funding but only at low levels? thanks for putting these out btw, really helps with character choice and the pro and con section is amazingly helpful!

  63. ditta traslochi

    Great work! This is the type of info that should be shared across the web.
    Disgrace on Google for not positioning this put up upper!
    Come on over and seek advice from my site .

    Thank you =)

    Here is my web blog … ditta traslochi

  64. Ayumilove Post author

    @kjh07: Usually magicians have high magic defense but low physical/weapon defense. So if a particular monster deals magic attack on you, you will receive lesser damage compared to the rest of the class. However, when Kanna (magician) bumps into an enemy, it takes in more damage compared to magic attack.

  65. kjh07

    i can see that other kanna only takes 1 damage from monster but my kanna still can take thousands damage from monster. How do they did that?my kanna magic defense is 3200+ and lvl 140. Sry for broken English, hope you know what i mean.

  66. Mastel

    Erm, i Just Notice that In your Hyper Skill Build, I Saw Hyper Mana.
    In that Skill Discription it say +15% Mp, so it apply to Kanna Mana as well?

  67. Dallas senior pictures

    Hurrah, that’s what I was looking for, what a material!
    present here at this website, thanks admin of this website.

  68. Animefreak426

    Hi Ayumi! Just wondering, won’t vanquisher’s charm become Kanna’s main attack after hyper skills are being added? If yes, why max it the last?

  69. Haku Haku

    Hey Ayumi, do you know how to get the Lvl 200 mount Haku and do we have to defeat Mori Ranmaru?

  70. Udin

    Hello Ayumi. It seems there is no hyper skills for Sengoku in MapleSea. I wam excited to play after I read your guide. I wonder when they will release hyper skills for Sengoku

    By the way, from what i observe from all Kanna’s skills, it seems Kanna is a multi-discipline characters. All of her skills are mixing of many other classes’ skills.

  71. Reayldon

    Hi ayumi ! I found that kanna’s 4th job skill : Tessenjutsu provides 30% damage, in your guide. But in fact, it actually provides 30% of FAN’S DAMAGE instead of your overall damage. What is meant by increasing Fan’s damage? Is that haku’s fan or kanna’s fan? I upgraded this skill to max level of 30 but how come my damage din’t get a boost but just remain unchanged? What does this skill actually mean?

  72. Ayumilove Post author

    @demishazylea: Orochi, Monkey Spirit, Falling Sakura, Tessenjutsu aka Kasen and Vanquisher’s Charm. See “Kanna’s Mastery Book” for more details.

  73. demishazylea

    which skills required mastery books?

  74. Anonymous

    I wonder if a male kanna character to be create??O.o

  75. Someone

    Maplesea is getting Kanna and Hayato. :DDDDDDDDDDDDD

  76. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi KannaFan, I have added Kanna and Hayato Hyper Skills in their respective pages :)

  77. kannaFan

    Please add Kanna and Hayato hyper skill in this list thank you.

  78. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Dalvin, there is always a possibility that MSEA would release Kanna. Once they import GMS version of Kanna (license), then they will have it launch in no time. But still there isn’t a confirm date for this release.

  79. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi dalvin, there are no official news from MSEA that they will be launching Kanna to MSEA. We will need to wait :)

  80. dalvin

    Is this job ever gonna come out in MSEA?

  81. AngelicLuminous

    @shadowolf: illusion-haku and breath of the unseen 2 appear to be the same skill, correct me if I’m wrong

  82. Shadowolf

    I found someone with an “illusion Haku” mastery book… but I have yet to see anyone with that skill. is it even a real one? or is it some hacker messing aournd?

  83. Kibou

    i heard that Kanna is gonna be released in December at MapleSEA,
    Is that true?

  84. Chau

    hey Ayumi, where can i find haku’s weapons in maplestory?

  85. Thiefy

    I started “Mysterious Discovery” quest in order to get the “Will of Alliance” skill,
    as I was inside the monster park, and now I’m just lost.

    Is that quest suppose to teleport you to somewhere?
    I have no idea what should I do, where should I go or who should I meet.

    I looked for like 2 hours over the internet and couldn’t find an answer for this question AS A KANNA.

    Waiting for your help.. :(

  86. Chau

    Thank you

  87. Ayumilove Post author

    You’re welcome PeachesNCR3am!

  88. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Chau, Kanna does not have Hyper Skills yet but they (JMS developers) will soon add them to be synchronize with other jobs.

  89. PeachesNCr3am

    Hey Ayumi, just wondering if there’s still a mastery book event? I just started playing again and I’m loving Kanna. Thankyou for your awesome guide as well! :D

  90. Chau

    hey Ayumilove, does Kanna have hyper skills?

  91. What is it?

    Hey, I was wondering what the illusion-haku skill was? I had a mastery book 20 of it, used it but nothing happened. Opened up my skill menu and there was no illusion-haku skill.

  92. Kibou

    Thanks for telling me that
    When the release date is announced,
    Can you post it here?


  93. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Kibou, there are no release dates yet given by the official MapleSEA website. In GMS, after releasing Kaiser, they released Kanna and Hayato before going ahead with Demon Avenger, Xenon and finally Cygnus Revamp + Adventurer Revamp. MapleSEA has random released of jobs.

  94. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Cliff Cleetus, there are 2 possibilities that Kishin Shoukan does not work when you are on rope. The first is you must be close to the platform on rope, the second is GMS Developers have patched it, third is Kishin Shoukan has done 100 attacks while you are on rope and it has stopped. On my Kanna, I use to leech EXP (experience) using Kishin Shoukan while my character is standing on a platform (not hanging on rope). Try that and see it works :)

  95. Kibou

    when will Kanna And Hayato be released in MSEA
    i am lookng forward to it
    and you guide is helpful to me as i use most of your guides to do PQS and up skills

  96. Cliff Cleetus

    Hi! Just thought I would add some stuff I found out when playing Kanna. When I Ether pulse like normal, it would cost 5 SP (or mana, w/e it is). But when I use it and hit an enemy, I gain the 5 back. Don’t know if it’s a glitch or intended but thought I’d bring it up (found out after 3rd job when I paid closer attention to the SP bar :<).
    And when I left Kishin Shoukan on while I was on a rope, It would not deal damage ( no AFK farming T_T).
    Also, in alien corridor 6 (or w/e it is called exactly) I left Kishin Shoukan on on the upper platform (a bit away from the left end) and stood exactly below it. My vision of the map was just a bit away from the portal. From there the Kishin Shoukan could kill the aliens on the upper platform while I would spirit corral (used to use tengu strike but that costed 40 for 8 enemies for the total damage and I found out spirit corral could 1HKO the aliens) to kill the entire lower enemies, which were around 10 I believe. Just standing in 1 place and pressing A to kill, while still getting exp for killing the top platform….. and just tele-ing up inbetween to re-apply the shinigamis………..

  97. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Mac, Elementalism can stack with any other link skill except for itself, which means it will be pointless to give Elmentalism to another Kanna within your same account if you have 2 Kanna. Potentials for Haku only applies for stats (STR/DEX/INT/LUK).

  98. Mac

    Hi, so I made Kanna a few weeks before I created AB, and the Elementalism somehow helped the AB after the nerfs. Ok so the fan I equip on Haku,,,by potentials does it mean both the potential and bonus potential, and doesnt include +n% int? Will Elementalism stack onto another character with link skills of other classes (e.g. Hayato’s Keen Edge)

  99. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks Steve! Will be updating Kanna and the Link Skill Guide :)

  100. Steve

    Great guide! Just to let you know that GMS changed the Link 2 level to 120 from 100. All others look good.

  101. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Daniel, I have not encountered such issue yet since I have not experience Combat Orders buff from Paladin or Phantom Thief (skill stolen from Paladin). For now, the best route would be to report it to the official GMS site so they can take note of it, and meanwhile disable Combat Orders Buff why right-clicking the icon which is where all the buffs are located on your top right corner of the screen.

  102. Daniel

    Hi Ayumi! I recently found out that the reason why I have been constantly dcing is because of Combat Orders making the monkey spirits glitchy. Do you know a solution to this problem? Please post this on the error section to let other people know that they aren’t alone on this dc issue! thanks! :)

  103. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Em, thanks for the notice! Strange that they increase the level now lol. Let me know if the HyperSkill Names needs to be updated as well if it does not sync with GMS hyper skill names.

  104. Em

    Hello Ayumi! Nexon just changed the level required to lvl up Elementalism to level 2. Now you need to reach lvl 120.
    Nexon patch quote: “Kanna’s link skill ‘Elemental Blessing’ raises to Lv.2 when she reaches Lv.120 instead of Lv.100. “

  105. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Frustratedkanna, you can always farm some tickets to enter Monster Park dungeons. I use to train there with my Demon Slayer and Phantom (both around Level 150) when LHC is packed. But when you train in LHC in party, you tend to level up faster since you can party with a stronger player who can kill faster, while your skills boost the spawn rate, benefiting everyone around :D

  106. FrustratedKanna

    Hi, Im level 147 kanna and I dont like LHC at all due to the fact that when I fight I lag out or dc due to all the high activity of fighting. So, I was wondering where I can train besides there. I have done all the ToTs quest I can and all the other ones like Silent Crusader etc. Im frustrated and dont wish to give up my kanna because of a small window of levels I need to get before going into future henesy. Any advice is welcome. Thank you.

  107. DatKanna

    What’s kanna lvl 200 mount look like ?

  108. Peter

    Where could we find lvl 100-120 fans?

  109. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Josh, it would be unwise to do so as upon losing your means of leeching, you will be there all by yourself stuck unable to train without the necessary skills.

  110. Josh

    If im primarily gonna be leeching at lhc while using kishin shoukan here and there, would it be unwise to go ahead and max out dawns warrior since im primarily just support?

  111. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi JcNOhayato, You can craft Kanna’s Fan if you have selected mining + smithing as your secondary profession. From there, you collect minerals by mining from training maps and later create weapons with smithing. That way, you do not need to endlessly grind away on monsters hoping to get that fan instead of other random job equipment. Most merchant make quick money by selling these new unique fan around 10 million meso and players are buying them like hot cakes since they want to focus on training and leveling up.

  112. JcNOhayato

    Does the lvl 80 to 140 fans only available from gatchapoon not dropped?

  113. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Shizukaskies, I have added a list of Kanna Quest at the bottom of this guide :)

  114. shizukaskies

    Hi Ayumi, I was wondering if you could make a guide for character storyline quests like you did for Luminous. It would be really helpful to see at what level characters like Hayato and Kanna obtain job quests. Thanks!

    No, Kishin actually reduces the time for spawning, although it may also increase the number. Both are quite benefitial.
    Hyper Skills will arrive for Jett and Zen/Dragon Warrior (in other versions like MSEA or CMS, etc.) with Explorers, as they are Explorer branchoffs, like Cannonneer and DB. For Kanna and Hayato, I am not sure.

  116. Mapler

    And yeah i forgot to ask: Does hyper skills come to exclusive jobs in Maple like Jett, Kanna, Hayato, Zen?

  117. Mapler

    When I train at Lion Heart Castle (LHC) many peolple i have partied with say that summon Kishin Shoukan to increase monster spawns. I see that the monster spawn does increase (i think). Is it true? Please answer

  118. ShadowMages

    And Hypers for Kanna haven’t been released yet. I personally want the Explorer Hypers first…

  119. ShadowMages

    @MapleChristian, probably should put all int points for max damage output!

    For Demon Fury vs. Spirit Corral, Spirit Corral (960%) gets easily replaced even by Tengu (1000% +2nd Lightning attack with 100% crits). While Spirit Corral does hit 2 more mobs than Tengu, I find it more like a pulling skill for one of to various mobbing or ultimates.

  120. Daniel

    Hi ayumi, what is the hyper skill for Kanna?

  121. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi MapleChristian, I think its not worth it? 1 Magic Attack produces (25-40 min max damage) whereas 1 INT produces (3-4 min max damage). 10 INT is similar to 1 Magic Attack. If you use 10 AP (Ability Points) into HP (Health Points) each AP only adds 10-20 HP Max. 700 HP gives 1 Magic Attack, so 700HP/20HP = 35 AP. To summarize, you use 35 AP into HP to achieve the same damage of 10 AP into INT.

  122. SirPlyster

    In the 3rd job explanation you wrote Burning Shikigami Haunting, not Frozen. Nice guide btw!

  123. John Paul

    Same goes for the Mighty Shikigami Haunting. :D

  124. John Paul

    You’re missing what Kanna say when doing Orochi. Please put it up if you can? :)

  125. Maplechristian

    Hi ayumi! What are your thoughts on putting 2 hp points & 3 int points for each lvl in order to make kanna hp higher? Thanks

  126. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Elanette, for me I max the skills in sequence as shown in the guide above without considering to have mastery books to max all skills. I rarely go above Level 110 unless the job is fairly fun to play such as Demon Slayer without the excessive need to spam 1-2 skills while grinding.

  127. elanette

    The Hayato release date has been confirmed! March 13th :D How would you go about getting more mastery books? I’ve been fighting monsters and bosses in Leafre that are supposed to drop mystery mastery books, but I know it’s rare. I made the mistake of not reading the guide completely before I was offered the free mastery book and I chose Monkey Spirits because I jumped at the chance for more EXP :[ I only have 15mil saved so I doubt buying any mastery books is an option for me.

  128. xiiaojckw

    Thanks for the concern Victor! It is working again ^^

  129. xiiaojckw

    Thanks Ayumilove! It is working again! And it seems to work on Windows Server 2003(Windows Service Pack 1 ) without any disconnection for me , might solve the disconnection issue.

  130. Victor

    It always works for me once I start it with IE, I’m glad this error has never been a huge problem for me. I hope you get yours fixed xiiaojckw!

  131. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi xiiaojckw, I have uploaded my BlackCipher zip file at http://ayumilove.net/maplestory-error-solution/

  132. xiiaojckw

    Can anyone upload the BlackCipher zip file? The one on the website isnt working >< and it seems the problem lies in there.

  133. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks Victor, I tried Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox but it does not fix the issue unless I change the BlackCipher.aes in the folder. Could you upload the whole BlackCipher folder in a zip file?

  134. Victor


    When that error happens to me it’s because I launch it from Google Chrome so instead I launch the game from Internet Explorer.

  135. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Victor or anyone from GMS, could you send me your BlackCipher folder by uploading to mediafire.com and pasting a link here. Let me know if you aren’t able to post link in the comment. I think I have figured out what causes the hackShield Initilization Error 0x000000000. Just to confirm whether its due to BlackCall.aes and BlackCipher.aes (The one from maplestory.nexon.net does not work).

  136. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks DragoonKnightL for the correction! I’ll update the description now.

  137. Victor

    Nope, I didn’t encounter any problems at all everything was good :) I will let you know for Hayato! When does it come out exactly?

  138. DragoonKnightL

    Kishin Shoukan Skill ‘decrease’ spawn time not ‘increase’ if it increase it’s a typo in the game GMS.

  139. Ayumilove Post author

    Thank Anonymous for pointing it out! I have added Binding Tempest skill in between Bellflower Barrier and Falling Sakura. Let me know if I missed out anything else :)

  140. Anonymous

    Hey Ayumi, just want to point out that Binding tempest is missing from your 4th job skill build. Other than that, excellent guide!

  141. Ayumilove Post author

    No prob Failway, do stop by if you need help or found something interesting you would like to share with me on Kanna or other MapleStory features :)

  142. Failway

    Thanks your the tips Ayumi,
    but the thing is I didn’t do Tot’s quest for the Quest Helpers…
    I just hope they’ll fix this in the next server check.

  143. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Victor, if the same thing happens with Hayato, just let me know early so I could update it quickly hehehe. Btw, did you encounter any issues with linking Kanna’s Elementalism to your other character?

  144. Victor

    Yeah, Spirit Corral is beast. TBH Demon’s fury is useless and never used! I’m 129 and getting bored……. Can’t wait for Hayato! Thanks for the guide Ayumilove it helped me tremendously.

  145. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi all, I have updated Kanna’s 3rd Job Skill Build Guide to max Spirit Corral instead as many players seem to find it much more useful compared to Demon’s Fury.

  146. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Failway and to the rest of Kanna players, avoid using Cash Shop Quest Helpers that Tot’s gives you to get your link skill early as this might bug the Kanna Link skill. Just do the 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!

  147. Failway

    I can’t use my Kanna’s link skill :
    It would give the notification that you can only link once a day,
    the skill itself says progress:none
    I did the quest for it.
    I found that a few other players are suffering the same thing,

  148. Xcod

    Oh thanks :)
    I just wonder if Haku’s buff thingy and Haku Transform it self can be cancelled by mob’s skill as they disappear and you are more likely to die.

  149. Phyuck Yiu

    is shikigami charm useful when i reach 3rd job or the new skills are better to the point where i dont need it? also is the gachapierrot the only way to get mastery books for kanna or boss/monsters drop them?

  150. Meows

    oh Ayumi~ you have always been helpful! FOREVER FANBOY

  151. god

    im stuck on honnou-ji infiltartion 1 quest

  152. Em

    Exactly, you start with Elementalism level 1 but you can link it to another character when you reach level 70 :)

  153. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks Em for your insight, I’ll update the Kanna guide with your info. Btw, how about Level 1 Elementalism, is it still Level 70 or they move it to Level 60? Just to confirm. I think Kanna gets Elementalism during Beginner stage but only allows to link to another character at Level 70.

  154. Em

    Hello Ayumilove! I wanted to tell you that the Link Skill goes to level 2 on Lvl 100. I’m level 102 and the Elementalism is level 2 :)
    By the way, thanks for all the guides, they are very useful ;) Cya!

  155. Ayumilove Post author

    You’re welcome Rakahs. I simply enjoy making guides :)

  156. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Venger, thats a great idea. I’m sure others will want to know how to earn tons of mesos quickly. I can setup a simple guide though, nothing fancy.

  157. Venger

    Hi Ayumi, do you mind if you make a guide that shows easy ways to get mesos? Please reply. It’s okay if you don’t want to.

  158. Hua

    Hi Ayumi, thank you for your reply. I will have to try out some 4th Job skills first and then hopefully I can figure out my settings.

    I barely use the buttons (home, end, page up, page down, delete). I do use the quickslots for cooldown skills though, because you can edit those to your own preference.

  159. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi SNowOffersWisdom, thanks it would be great help :)

  160. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Mapler, thanks for your release prediction on Hayato. If it’s true, everyone will be getting ready to race up with Hayato since there are already 5 Kanna players at Level 190 and above. The Hayato release has not been confirmed in GMS MapleStory official site. We will wait and see :D

  161. StupidityNowOffersWisdom

    @Ayumi: If they’ve not dubbed it, I can get the recordings of 1st/2nd/3rd job from JMS for you.

  162. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks Victor for your input and congrats of reaching Level 120 ;)

  163. Ayumilove Post author

    If anyone have Kanna video recording of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Job Skills, you could send post a link here so I could make a new video out of it (a compilation of the skills) :D Would be nice to have both male and female voice effects and without MapleStory background music + the chat window and familiar close since it obstructs the view.

  164. Victor

    I mean walking speed which affects the attacking speed a bit because they are so slow :/ Oh and the link skill does go to lvl 2 at lvl 120 :)

  165. Mapler

    Hayato is coming 2 weeks after Kanna
    Since his Hot Time is also coming in that week’s Sat

  166. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Hua, you can place the 3 Shikigami Haunting (Burning, Freezing, Mighty) in your (Insert, Home, PageUP) keyboard. You deal 50% extra damage to monsters who are weak against your attack. Example: Use Burning against Ice, Freezing against Fire, and Mighty against Water (such as Octopus nearby Kerning City). It’s basically a combo of explorer magicians skills or similar to Paladin Charges (Fire, Ice, Thunder, Holy).

    Then add Nine-Tailed Fury on your PageDOWN button, Orochi and Falling Sakura in either DELETE and END button key so you can keep track on the skill cooldown.

    You can add those supportive skills into your 3 skill macro buttons: Haku Reborn, Radiant Peacock, Dawn’s Warrior).

    For active skills, you can keep Nimbus Curse (similar to Poison Mist – use it when there are many monsters around for the mist to appear!), Tengu Strike, Kishin Shoukan, Blossom Barrier, Monkey Spirits.

    The rest of the skills you wouldn’t use much during training :D

  167. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Jason Huang, Dawn Warrior does not need a Mastery Book. The only skills that requires Mastery Book are Vanquisher’s Charm, Orochi, Falling Sakura, Monkey Spirits, Binding Tempest, Bellflower Barrier, Kasen and Breath of the Unseen.

  168. Jason Huang

    do we need a mastery book for dawn warrior?

  169. Hua

    Lol, it changed the layout of my text. It was easier to read before I submitted it.

  170. Hua

    Ayumilove, which Kanna skills from 1st, 2nd and 3rd Job will still be used in 4th Job? Kanna has to many skills, and it is a bit too much to put them all on the keyboard.

    (1st Job)
    -Shikigami Haunting – yes
    -Ether Pulse – yes

    (2nd Job)
    -Rock Yaksha – no, I think
    -Shikigami Charm – ?
    -Haku Reborn – yes
    -Radiant Peacock – yes
    -Burning Shikigami – ?
    -Nimbus Curse – ?

    (3rd Job)
    -Tengu Strike – yes
    -Spiri Corral – no
    -Soul Shear – didn’t really use it in 3rd Job, don’t know about 4th Job
    -Kishin Shoukan – yes
    -Blossom Barrier – yes
    -Frozen Shikigami Haunting – ?
    -Demon’s Fury – ?

    Does Mighty Shikigami Haunting replace Frozen Shikigami Haunting?
    Thank you in advance :)

  171. rakahs

    Sweet, thanks for the fast reply =D Are you enjoying you Kanna?

  172. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi rakahs, choose Kasen 30 Mastery Book instead of (Vanquisher’s Charm 30, Orochi 30, Monkey Spirits 30) Then use meso to purchase Monkey Spirits 30 from Free Market. Vanquisher’s Charm and Orochi can be maxed later as shown in the skill build guide.

  173. rakahs

    What mystery mastery book should I get from the event?

  174. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Victor, what do you mean by slow? Slow attack or slow walking speed? Currently, there are a few GMS MapleStory players who has broken the Level 120 barrier (2.5 hours with 2x EXP COUPON + 2x EXP Event = 4x EXP) The Event for 2x EXP and drop rate is held on (March 2 – March 3) + (March 9 – March 10) + (March 16 – March 17) + (March 23 – March 24) + (March 30 – March 31) + (April 6 – April 7) at
    Pacific Time (2 PM – 4 PM / 8 PM – 10 PM) and Eastern Time (5 PM – 7 PM / 11 PM – 1 AM) in spite of the horrendous server lag and disconnection issue.

  175. Victor

    Hey Thanks, and yeah of course if no one tells you first I will definitely help you!

    P.S. The only thing I hate about Kanna is how amazingly slow they are -.-

  176. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Victor, Kanna link skill has 2 levels, the first level is unlocked at Level 70 and second level is unlocked at Level 120. This applies to all Link Skills! Currently, only some link skills have Level 2. For example, KMS (Korea MapleStory) has just unlocked Level 2 Link Skills on Nov 28 2012 for Angelic Buster, Kaiser, Mercedes, Mihile, Phantom, and Luminous. Not all MapleStory regions unlock Level 2 yet. You can help check out for me once you reach Level 120 :D

  177. Ayumilove Post author

    You’re welcome Krovphus :) Share this guide with your friends if you find it helpful!

  178. Victor

    Another awesome guide. When does the link skill upgrade to lvl 2? I just started playing Kanna a couple hours ago….

  179. Krovphus

    Thank You. I can now play MS again because it always wouldnt work saying something wasnt found when I’ve downloaded everthing. Thanks

  180. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Pwnzified, get Kasen Mastery Book which upgrades your Max Mastery to Level 30 with 100% success rate. Kasen is vital for stabilizing your damage (increasing min damage) and also boosting your overall damage. Also, this kind of mastery books will cost an arm and a leg, therefore most unfunded players will choose this first.

  181. Pwnzified

    Hi Ayumi, what mastery book do you recommend to get at level 70?

  182. Ayumilove Post author

    You’re welcome JacJones. Hope to see you around more!

  183. JacJones

    Thank you for the awesome build

  184. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi All, Kanna 1st 2nd 3rd and 4th Job Skill Names have been updated from the old to the official from GMS (Global MapleStory).

  185. Ayumilove Post author

    Kanna 2nd and 3rd Job Skill Build Guide has been updated with Post-Tempest Patch (Max Mastery Level reduction has been taken into account for the skill build)

  186. Ayumilove Post author

    @StupidityNowOffersWisdom, Thanks for the notice!

  187. StupidityNowOffersWisdom

    @Ayumi: Haku is male. Take a closer look at his transformed clothing.

  188. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Jett Tan, I predict that Kanna and Hayato would be release in MapleSEA in 1 year time if they are allowed to publish JMS exclusive jobs in their region. If GMS allows male and female (no gender lock), then MapleSEA would probably have this feature if they wish to follow GMS. I do not know whether Haku is a male or female since its originally a non-gender pet. Kanna spends spiritual power to activate skills and their spiritual capacity is 100. In other words, their Spiritual Power does not increase when they have more INT (Intellect) Stats.

  189. jett tan

    When will Kanna release in MaplestorySea. I really like this job . Pls tell me.when?
    Can I ply male version kanna in maplestorySea???
    Haku is a male or female???
    Kanna did not use magic point (mp) then kanna use spiritual power???

  190. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks OliviaStorm for the notice! I have checked out Nexon site and it seems that Kanna will be release on February 27 2013! Nice to have something to look forward and that also gives us a hint that Hayato will be shortly released after Kanna probably another 1 month after it.

  191. OliviaStorm

    Looks like we are getting Kanna on GMS with the next huge patch. Nexon just posted the release notes.

  192. Chimchajim

    4th job skill demo PLS! ^^

  193. Chimchajim

    Cool Skills.But where is the 4th job skill demo ? Curious to watch it.

  194. StupidityNowOffersWisdom

    Oops! I meant the coins you get during anniversary seasons.

  195. Ayumilove Post author

    @StupidityNowOffersWisdom : What item would you buy with maple coins?

  196. StupidityNowOffersWisdom

    Yeah, I know about that, but I’d rather not waste the maple coins I’ve collected over my limited play, so I thought I would ask around first~

  197. Ayumilove Post author

    @NowOffersWisdom: Kanna does not need MP since its skill does not rely on it but another kind of energy system introduced by Korea Nexon. It might recover your HP faster since both are channeled to Kanna’s HP. I haven’t seen anyone experimented that. Nice idea! You can try it out to see what happens. If the chair is passed to a non-Kanna character that relies on MP, the chair will replenish both HP and MP.

  198. StupidityNowOffersWisdom

    Just curious, but if I were to get a HP and MP replenishing chair, would I lose out on the MP replenishing part (because you listed the MP to HP conversion for pots only)?

  199. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Deity: This is an exclusive job for JMS. There are speculations on whether this will be released to other MapleStory regions, same goes with GMS Jett jobs release to JMS and KMS. From my opinion, they might since they did this for MapleStory Maps, so why not jobs as well?

  200. Deity

    Excuse me, but will this ever come to GMS? Also, is this gender locked?

  201. Ayumilove Post author

    Made some minor adjustments to Kanna’s 3rd Job Skill Build after viewing that Sou Tengu can hit multiple platforms above it, similarly to Bishop 4th Job Genesis without any cooldown restriction.
