MapleStory Wild Hunter Skill Build Guide V3

* Attention: Click here for the latest MapleStory Wild Hunter Skill Build Guide *

The Wild Hunter is a member of the Resistance that fires a volley of arrows from the back of a tamed Jaguar to overpower foes with relentless attacks. The Wild Hunter is skilled in both close-range and long-range combat. The Wild Hunter has all the characteristics of a Bowman – quick movements, wide attack range, and moving attacks. Wild Hunters are unique, as they need to capture and ride a Jaguar in order to perform most of their skills. Jaguars, which give Wild Hunters a huge boost in mobility, come in a variety of colors, and players can select a color that suits them best. In comparison to other bowman-based classes, Wild Hunters have higher HP, MP, and critical rates. However, a Wild Hunter can be more difficult than other Bowmen to play at first, though it definitely makes up for it with strong attacks at high levels.

Wild Hunter Notes

There are five main Jaguars that Wild Hunters can capture. There are the regular ones, that are basically the regular colored ones. Then there’s Jaira, which is black with glowing eyes, Snow White, which is white with golden marks, Onyx Jaguar, which is black with glowing eyes and armoured, and lastly, Armoured Crimson(coming out in F.L.Y patch- KMS), which is red with a claw mark and is armoured. Both Snow White and Onyx gives an additional 50% stance when you use Jaguar Rider, resulting in 100% stance. Armoured Crimson reduces damage taken and increase resistance to statuses. To find Jaria or Snow White is to go to the Jaguar Habitat and keep changing channels ’till you find blue text saying, “Jaria/Snow White has appeared from between the boulders.” Jaira has a spawn time of 6 hours, while Snow White has a spawn time of 60 hours. You can also switch between your captured jaguars by talking to Belle, however, this is only available after the F.L.Y patch(KMS).

    I’m impressed, I ought to say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is something that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about. I’m pretty content that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    @Anon: FLY Patch is similar to GMS v.148 – Grand Athenaeum (2014-03-26), where they perform some skill revamps (added new skills, remove old skills, buff/nerf skills) to Resistance jobs. It will be there once you have obtained the revamp skills as this revamp goes along with the newly added Jaira/Snow White.

  8. Ayumilove Post author

    GMS v.149 – Legacy of Nine contains new updates for Wild Hunter.
    01. [Buffed] Sonic Roar
