Mihile Storyline

The mightiest hero can come from the humblest beginnings. The great warrior you know as Mihile did not always go by that name. Once upon a time he was an overworked stock boy at Mr. Limbert’s General Store, known only as “kiddo.” Little did that young boy know that his life was about to change forever… Empress Cygnus long suspected that there was more to the boy than what met the eye, so she and Neinheart decided to test the young warrior. It wasn’t until Cygnus watched him defeat her minions with ease that she knew the truth for sure. Neinheart was skeptical, but Cygnus’s faith never wavered. She explained to the boy that his father was a warrior of great power; a warrior for good and a warrior for the light. He had left his infant son with the old man Limbert, planning to one day return, but he was never able to escape the great evil that defeated him. She went on to call the nameless kiddo “Mihile,” which means “Born of Light” in honor of his fallen father, Chromile, the Knight of Light. The young Empress and her faithful follower Neinheart brought the boy with a new name back with them to Ereve. There he learned that “Only the darkest night can produce the most brilliant sunrise!”

    hi , did sacred cube doesn’t have cooldown?

  2. yichor

    hey guys, anyone know mihile pros and cons?

  3. Bash

    @anonymous
    This is a class that tanks damage however it cannot heal like a paladin so it’s really not a good comparison. You will definitely use potions when you get to 120’s if you are fighting blue dragon turtles etc. I did not like this class from 1st-3rd job but once you hit the 4th job the mobbing is great radiant cross is a strong and fast attacking skill and the reach is far as well. When i say far i do not mean like bucs, marks and canon’er far. You won’t be disappointed with the distance of that attaching skill unlike a hero where u have to be right under the creatures ass to hit them.

    Soul link and royal guard are good skills but just a waste of time to use. I wish they would revise those skills because i never used them. Mihile waste mana fast(not as fast as dawn warrior) when soul link is toggled on it drains mana every few seconds and self recovery doesn’t really negate how fast your mana drops. Royal guard is a good skill when you can get it to work but the time you spend trying to get it to work is a pain in the ass because you need the right timing.

    Overall this is the best character i’ve played and there are only 4 characters i have not gotten to 100 yet and those are bishop f/p, I/L and battle mage. I pretty much hate playing the mage class so I wont waste my time with these, a flash jump is huge for me teleport doesn’t cut it.

  4. anonymous

    How about pros and cons? How do they compare to paladins in terms of bossing and tankyness?

  5. xNinjaMomox

    Didn’t the quest for creating an Ultimate Explorer has been removed for quite some time?

  6. Doanut

    Hi Ayumi. With the new mihile link skill, when linking it to other characters, do they get all the bonuses or just the stance?

  7. Blazer

    Mihile apparently has Noble Mind. I see it in my beginner skills. I don’t see a the mind of noble quest. Instead, I see a [Required] quest line that makes me kill Arkarium. Is this the quest to level up Noble Mind?

  8. Ayumilove Post author

    @REBBOOT: Yeah, Mihile Link Skill has changed from “Guardian of Light” to “Knights Watch” for Reboot patched MapleStory servers. I’ll remove this skill from this new Mihile Guide! You can refer to the older skills as Version 1 at http://ayumilove.net/maplestory-mihile-skill-build-guide-v1/

  9. REBBOOT

    Hey Ayumi. Did mihile link skill change? I only see Knights Watch. Where Guardian of Light? Is there no more guardian light?

  10. Ayumilove Post author

    @Person: Strange, I just created a Mihile for the Reboot and level it up to Level 126 on the weekends and I noticed that my Trinity Attack (3rd Job Skill) can reach up to Level 17/20. Not sure where the extra SP came from though. I’ll set it to Level 14/20 as the safe spot first in the guide. Thanks for your feedback!

  11. person

    Hey ayumi in 3rd job, you can only cap Trinity Attack at 14 if you want to max everything else

  12. Ayumilove Post author

    @Ashley: Thanks for your feedback! I’ll be updating Mihile skills with the one from Reboot.

  13. Ashley

    Hey Ayumi! I just wanted you to know that these skills are outdated. They took out the lasers and now there’s a new guard skill. I’ll give you details if you want, but my Mihile is only 65. Removing the laser makes him even less fun than he already was >.>

  14. xxjoexx

    did mihile good at mobility or mobbing or bossing and did mihile is unfunded ?

  15. Ayumilove Post author

    @John: I’m not sure about this as I have yet to reach that level. Will need an experienced Mihile to share his experience with us on Empress Blessing Level.

  16. john

    Mihile reached 200 lvl empress blessing will be 30 level???

  17. Ayumilove Post author

    @SkySchythe: Probably they have removed the +10% EXP buff for Mihile in your MapleStory region.

  18. SkyScythe

    It’s below 120 , but I don’t get 10% bonus exp , is it a bug or something?

  19. Ayumilove Post author

    @SkyScythe: What level is your Mihile? The 10% EXP Boost should apply to those who are Level 120 and below.

  20. SkyScythe

    Hey, why my mihile doesn’t have 10% exp boost? Is it a bug or it’s removed?

    @Zking: The classes that does not require to purchase Mastery Books are all Cygnus Knights except for Mihile. This means Dawn Warrior, Wind Archer, Flame Wizard, Striker, and Night Walker does not require to purchase Mastery Books. Other seasonal jobs such as Pink Bean, Ayame, SAO (Kirito, Asuna, Leafa) does not require Mastery Books.

    @Paul Hwang: I have updated Mihile’s 2nd job Soul Driver 16/20 to 14/20. Apologies for the inconveniences caused.

  23. Ayumilove Post author

    @Anymouse: Thanks for pointing Mihile’s level cap! I’ll update it now from 200 to 250.

  24. Anymouse

    At the Mihile Notes, I thought Mihile’s level cap is 250, not 200.

  25. Wuttheheck

    @Paul Hwang Yes you can. Go buy Sp reset from Matilda in town shop.

  26. Paul Hwang

    Please edit your second job for Mihile, it says leave your soul driver to 16/20 but it should actually be 14/20, because you don’t have enough SP to finish Final Attack. This really screwed me over, so now I can’t get final attack for 4th job, which is a 30ATT boost

  27. Zking

    Hi Ayumi can you list the classes that dont need to buy 20 and 30 mastery book ?

  28. Ayumilove Post author

    @GGraifu: Sorry for any inconveniences caused. If you are missing skill points in the passive skills, you will need to spend some NX Cash on 2nd Job Skills Reset Coupon. If you do not have the cash, you will need to restart all over again.

  29. GGraifu

    so you’re telling me not to worry if i miss skill points? i went radiant driver before final attack because it was allowing me to 1hko 100% of the time. now my final attack is 15/20 because the guide said max all but soul driver which i capped at 19… “no worries if you’re missing skill points”. i’m screwed in 4th job unless i buy sp reset…

  30. Ayumilove Post author

    @Enrique: Mihile 3rd Job Skills does not depend on 2nd Job Skills Soul Driver and Radiant Driver. So no worries if its missing SP (Skill Points).

  31. Enrique

    The guide is wrong on second job skills.. U wrote to get soul diver up to 19.. I put 18 points on it and I’m still missing 4 points on radiant driver… I think I screw up my mihile, so I might delete it.. Is it that important? Or can I make another Cygnus instead?

  32. KoreanSwaq

    Should I make a Mihile or a Dawn Warrior? I’m unfunded, and I’m looking for a warrior class that is fast and fun, since I usually play bowmen and thieves. I’m also looking for a fast leveling class. I don’t care about Link Skills.

  33. ShockSpirit

    Do mihile gets a token at third job advancement?

  34. LostOne

    Mihile’s own story is broken… the Lost Diary quest requests you to kill 50 wild boars (which currently are LV55 monsters in Msea) while you are still at LV20+… well done maple…

  35. Alexander

    Why People say Mihile is weak?

  36. Ninjacookie

    In 2nd job you dont have enough points to max radiant driver, I only got it to 10, same problem as Mynasin :/

  37. Mynasin

    I think 2nd job & 3rd job skill points are a bit overcalculated.

    2nd job: If you max everything else, Soul Driver should only have 14 SP, not 19.
    3rd job: If you max everything else, Tri Attack should only have 14 SP, not 19.

    I’ve just finished getting to level 100 on my Mihile and I accidentally put Soul Driver to 19, thinking that the SP would balance out, so my Radiant Driver only has 10 SP now. Unless somehow I’m missing SP I think the guide is miscalculated. Other than that, thanks for everything!

  38. Ayumilove Post author

    Updated Mihile/Mikhail skills to GMS v.149 (Buffed: Soul Driver, Radiant Buster, Trinity Attack, Four-Point Assault, Radiant Blast)

  39. UNDEAD

    Thx man

  40. Blue_Hedgehog

    Only the skill with the highest level will have an affect on your character.

  41. UNDEAD

    If the blessing of the fairy and the empresses blessing doesnt stack will one of em work?

  42. Ayumilove Post author

    @Charlie: Sorry for the late reply. Thanks for your feedback regarding the Hyper Skill being outdated. Currently this guide is using GMS v.132 Hyper Evolution. I’ll need to update it to GMS v.137 for the latest update on the Hyper Skill changed levels.

  43. Charlie

    Is the hyper skill build current? The levels you have posted do not match what my hyper skill window says. So I am just wondering if your build is up to date. Thank you for all the guides you have posted.

  44. Ayumilove Post author

    @Game: Yeah, they need. However, the remaining 5 Cygnus Knights does not require (RED Patch).

  45. Game

    mihile needs mastery bocks?

  46. Ayumilove Post author

    @Gwynandre: Thanks for the tip! I’ll update Mihile Hyper Skill Build :)

  47. Gwynandre

    I suggest Hyper Dexterity over Hyper Weapon Defense since Mihiles have a skill that double your defense, and the 9999 cap for weapon defense is hit very easily.

  48. Pompomdidi

    Do mihile need mastery book after red update?

  50. Dave

    Hi Ayumi or any Mihile out there, I’m just wondering why I couldn’t jump high up just like other classes (Demon slayer/ Cygnus Knights?) it allows me to jump forward/backward but I’m hoping that Mihile can also jump high up…. any advise? thanks

  51. Creativity

    Chippy go to maplesea website. All Cygnus Knights have been blocked.

  52. dalvinas

    are you still able to create mihile after cygnus returns patch?

  53. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Minion Rush, I think it would be best if MapleStory came out a new system (similarly to Deck Card or Link System) which can apply to all classes/job in general. This Dual System in my opinion, should be able to group 2 types of jobs which you like (including the same one perhaps to deal extra damage or perform a special attack).

  54. Minion Rush

    I want to have the most fun, I don’t really care about power but it would be nice.

    Out of…

    Explorer
    Cygnus Knight
    Resistance
    Dual Blade
    Cannoneer
    Demon Slayer
    Mihile

    What is the most fun, and maybe most powerful and why?

  55. lcren

    the max lvl of enduring spirit , self recovery and knight’s watch has changed from 20 to 10

  56. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Jesse, you can max Radiant Driver over Soul Driver if you wish to hold out till 3rd Job for Radiant Buster to take over as a primary attacking skill :) It’s a good choice if you wish to make the perfect Mihile character in my opinion.

  57. Jesse

    Yeah sorry I meant radiant driver not radiant charge and don’t you mean maxing radiant driver over soul driver also I think you meant till the 3rd job not waiting till forth because soul driver get’s replaced in 3rd job.

  58. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Jesse, Radiant Charge isn’t a skill that kills enemies. It’s a skill that temporarily increases damage. Soul Driver on the other hand is used to kill multiple enemies and its very useful especially bossing. If you can train without having max Soul Driver until you reach 4th Job, then go for it. Max Soul Driver over Radiant Driver.

  59. Jesse

    So basically it depends i can see radiant charge being more useful in the long run because you can quickly take out a group of weak enemies and soul driver is completely useless since it gets replaced in 3rd job but is more helpful when training in second job am I correct?

  60. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Jesse, usually rush skill can’t kill enemies in 1-2 hit if they are high level. Therefore, I mainly focus in upgrading primary skill at that job level for better kills. You can opt to upgrade rush skill to the max instead. It’s your build but I prefer mine like this for optimized training. Hyper Skill Builds will be added later on this site.

  61. Jesse

    Two uestions

    1. Why max soul driver over radiant driver because I can see radiant driver being more usefully in later jobs to charge enemies for some quick kills

    2. Do you have any Hyper skill builds at all and if you do were can I find them

  62. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Chippy, dull icon means they have already disabled Mihile job creation. You have to wait for them to unlock the job.

  63. Chippy

    Well, the icon is just dulled out for me. And when I clicked it, it just says this job is currently unavailable.
    Thanks for the reply!

  64. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Chippy, is Mihile character creation blocked?

  65. Chippy

    Hey, ayumi,
    I wasn’t able to create a mihile as a character for some reason, was wondering if theres some req. (MapleSEA btw)

  66. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Evilade, Queen of Tomorrow damage cap is 50K in GMS (Global MapleStory) whereas in KMS, they have updated it in their 2nd patch from 50K to 5 million for damage cap in kMS ver. 1.2.179.

  67. Evilade

    Hi Ayumilove,

    Queen of Tomorrow (Level 200)
    The blessing of the Empress increases your damage by 10% and lets you pass the damage cap by 50,000 for 60 seconds.

    50k cap dmg only? Not 5mil cap?

  68. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi mo, I have corrected the max lvel for Mihile’s Sword Mastery. Thanks for the notice :)

  69. mo

    Hey dude it says my sword mastry is max is level 10…

  70. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Scotty, I think its not possible to use SP from Mihile 3rd Job Skill (Trinity Attack) into Mihile 2nd Job Skill (Radiant Driver). You can channel SP between different skill if there are within the same tier. If its possible to do so, then its okay to channel SP from Trinity Attack into Radiant Driver if you don’t find yourself using Trinity Attack often.

  71. Scotty

    Would it be okay to dump the SP for trinity attack into Radiant Driver?

  72. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks HikariX for the correction! I have updated Mihile 1st Job Skill Build Guide.

  73. HikariX

    On 1st job Soul Devotion can’t be maxed without raising at least one on soul shield just saying.

  74. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Cake, Probably Dawn Warrior will have Level 200 unless Nexon decided otherwise but chances are slim for that to happen since Mihile has its own storyline.

  75. Cake

    Is Mihile considered the Lv. 200 ver. of Dawn Warrior? When I say this I mean like a Thunder Breaker –> Striker. Will there be a Lv. 200 Dawn Warrior AND Mihile still intact?

  76. Ayumilove Post author

    @K: Thanks for the notice! I have added Soul Shield into 1st Job Skill Build Guide. Just place it last :)

  77. K

    @Ayumilove

    1st job need to max Soul Shield?

    If yes, why you never put?

    And when to max Soul Shield?

  78. Aeron

    Hi ayumi. Long time never see you in this game. Still playing? I just play back recently.

  79. marcust

    LOL ya ;/ tmr wakeup can make le.

  80. ISeeWhatYouDidThere

    Marcust
    You must be from MSEA. :P

  81. marcust

    By “not counting boss%” i mean the boss % from eq’s potential

  82. marcust

    Kk thankyou!! That was helpful~ Anyway, any idea 130%str with 180wa sword can hit how much with four point assault per line? Like on normal mob, not counting boss %? (to prevent confusion)

  83. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Marcust, just to simplify. Use Four Point Assault for 1 v 1. If there are 2 or more, use Radiant Blast. The damage gap between both skills is near equal when Radiant Blast attacks at least 2 monster vs Four Point Assault. Level 166 Mihile Four Point Assault deals 900k damage per hit average (900,000 x 4 = 3.6 million damage) whereas Radiant Blast deals 330K damage per hit average (330,000 x 6 = 1.98 million damage) If 2 monsters, 1.98 x 2 = 3.96 million damage.

  84. marcust

    Hmm sorry maybe i should rephrase my question,for bossing,
    -Four Point Assault (360% x 4 hits=1440%)
    -but benefits from Righteous Indignation’s 20% damage.
    -Radiant blast is (280% x 6 hits=1680%)
    -but does not benefit from Righteous Indignation’s 20% damage.
    -So which is a better 1 v 1 bossing skill?
    -Four Point Assault’s 1440% which benefits from Righteous Indignation’s 20 % damage,
    -or Radiant Blast’s 1680% which does not benefit from Righteous Indignation?

    Thanks in advance!

  85. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi marcust, Roiling Soul increases overall base damage. So if your min damage is 100 and max damage is 1000, it increases by 60%, so min-max = 160-1600. Then apply the Four Point Assault skill damage 1440%, your min-max is 2304-23040. [2ND-DAMAGE/CRITICAL] All classes starts with critical damage min max of 120% – 150%, assuming you deal a critical attack on an enemy with clean 200 damage, your minimum critical damage is 240 (, whereas your maximum critical damage is 300 (200 x 1.5). If apply Roiling Soul (at max level), it boost your minimum critical damage by 15%, therefore your new minimum critical damage is 120% + 15% = 135%. Your lowest critical damage would hit 200 x 1.35 = 270. If were were to use the value provided in the first example (2304 x 1.35 gives 3110.4 minimum critical damage). This a lot of maths, hope you enjoy them :D

  86. marcust

    Hi thanks for replying, another question is, four point assault & radiant blast, which is a better bossing skill? i know that four point assault benefits from the extra 20% damage because of blinding the boss but radiant blast is 280% x 6 = 1680% white four point assault is only 360% x 4 = 1440%. How should i count? 1440% x 1.2 = 1728%? or? Hopes for your reply~ TY

  87. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Enoterc, Mikhail and Dawn Warrior shares some common skills but not all of them are the same.

    Hi marcust, I don’t think it can stun bosses, let alone mini bosses. I tried various effects on mini bosses in LHC (Lion Heart Castle), for instance the Crocky the Gatekeeper, it does not freeze, stun, paralyse, etc. However, you can knockback it with high raw damage.

  88. marcust

    Are we able to “stun” bosses with radiant buster? Is “stun” really counted an “abnormal status”? Hopes for an answer :D

  89. Enoterc

    Does Mikhail and Dawn Warrior have same skill?

  90. Ayumilove Post author

    @Joel: Shinning Buster aka Radiant Buster puts enemies into stun status. So when those enemies are stun/freeze/poison/etc you will benefit from Righteous Indignation / Soul Attack extra damage and bonus critical rate.

  91. Joel

    Also,wouldn’t it be better to save Righteous Indignation/Soul Attack for last on the maxing skill list on 3rd job? It’s pretty useless if you don’t have a mage or similar on your team to cause a status effect on the monster to activate the skill, though that skill could be useful for Pyramid PQ.

  92. Joel

    Just leaving this here: Trinity Attack,the 3rd job Mihile skill,should not be spammed. If you use the skills three times in a row,using a macro not the hacking kind) ,for example,like I do (I place all my attack skills on a macro that spams them three times lol) can get you banned,since the GM police thinks you’re nodelaying or something. Just warning everyone.

  93. Ayumilove Post author

    @Hanzor: Hopefully, MapleStory Developers allows sufficient SP (Skill Points) to make out all skill. Saves the trouble of thinking which 1 should not be maxed :)

  94. Ayumilove Post author

    @Deity: For Mikhail and other related new jobs released by KMS, it takes approximately 6 months to 1 year based from my observation. Phantom took roughly 6 months to reach USA Shores, for some other regions it might take more depending on how much other content they have in sync with KMS. For exclusive jobs, I have no idea on when they will be releasing them. Hope this helps :)

  95. Hanzor

    @Ayumi: I would choose between 2 options,

    1) Advanced Soul Shield unmaxed (Warriors already have a high defense and hp, so they can still survive a seduce + 1/1 combo without it maxed).
    2) Maple Warrior unmaxed (MW 30 is a expensive book and a lot of persons have it already when bossing or training).

    I think at bossing the bonus gotten from Soul Assault is better than 5% all stats from MW 30 (assuming you already have it at 20) and you are soloing, If it’s in a party, chances are somebody else has it maxed already.

    Post tempest it doesn’t matter since 4th job starts at Lv 100 and we’ll max everything and still have sp leftover. =P

  96. Deity

    Ayumilove? Aren’t you going to reply?

  97. Deity

    When will Mikhail be available in USA? P.S. Ayumilove, if this is getting really annoying, I’m sorry and pls forgive me. P.S.S. If you look at the comments of your Angelic Burster skills video on youtube, you’ll see that someone thinks you’re dead (oh and I’m linkandrutoforever1 who corrected him/her).

  98. Ayumilove Post author

    @Night: Only KOC (Knight of Cygnus). However KMS (Korean MapleStory) allows Mikhail to complete a quest to obtain Noble Mind.

  99. Ayumilove Post author

    @Hanzor: If you were to max Soul Assault, which skill you will remove SP from?

  100. Hanzor

    I do agree Shining Blast is better for training but Soul Assault shouldn’t be left at last and unmaxed (pre-tempest).
    Because of 3rd job’s Soul Attack. +20% Damage & Critical when Assault “Blinds” a boss. =)

  101. Night

    Does mikhail get the skill noble mind like normal cygnus knights?
