    @Blissys: I used macro only for the buff skills. For the main primary skills that uses combo for attacking, I keep practicing until I’m able to execute the combo skills fluently. There were times that it did not execute and took me off balance/rhythm. After mastering Aran, I switched to Xenon (much easier to play and less button smashing). My fingers kinda hurt after playing Aran so I stopped playing it.

  2. Blissys

    Ayumi, I have a question. Do you use macro? Not automating tasks, but somewhat like a hotkey to do a specific set of keys? I have been playing Aran and I really dislike how I have to repeatedly press the attack button to attack; moreover, I don’t like how I have to press the attack button and arrow keys at the same time to do an attack. Do you have any recommendations to get around this? I’m specifically looking for a hotkey method to “press” a set of keys at once.

    I love using your guides. They make it easy for me to handle the SP without worrying that I am messing something up. But you have some turkeys who are putting some ugly stuff on your main page. Got hijacked by one I could only get out of by using task manager to shut down Chrome. Was saying my hard drive was in danger and I should call a certain phone number and ask for help. Ridiculous! Just wanted you to know. Thanks for all your hard work.

    I use 70% scrolls using Star Force Upgrade System during Spell Trace Fever Time which increase the success rate from 70% to 95%!. I max out all the stars for that particular equip based on the number of Spell Traces I have collected/hunted from monsters.

    Regular Rate Increased Rate
    70% scrolls 95% success
    30% scrolls 45% success
    15% scrolls 25% success

  8. Bakhe

    I meant how many star forces for each stage**

  9. Bakhe

    Right. Thanks!! And do you have any recommendations for how many hours star force I should have for each level of 60 and 100? And do you use 100% spell traces or do u risk and go for lower chances? Thanks again!

  10. Ayumilove Post author

    @bakhe: Yes, I did that too and it speed up leveling quite significantly without needing to hunt equips that matches your character level. What I did was to perform spell trace and star force on item Level 20 (1st + 2nd job), 60 (3rd job) and 100 (4th job) ~ approximately every 40 levels. Once you reach Level 140, you can grab your new gear and perform the necessary spell trace/star force again!

    hey ayumi!
    i’m a returning maplestory user, and i was curious if it was better to upgrade low level equips,, by that i mean like lvl 10 equips with spell trace and star force and use them till later about lvl? will that work?

    @UserOfYourGuides: For mobbing class which has very large AOE (area of effect) attack and levels very quickly: my top 3 picks would be Luminous, Xenon and Dawn Warrior. For bossing, the top 5 DPS (Damage Per Second) jobs would be Zero, Night Walker, Fire/Poison ARchmage with Mist Eruption skill, Blaze Wizard, Thunder Breaker. When you’re hitting max damage per line, then DPS%/second no longer matters. Hits/second take priority there.

  15. UserOfYourGuides

    Hey! Your guides are great! What would be awesome would be a tier list of classes based on Mobbing/Bossing/Leveling! Thanks!

  16. Ayumilove Post author

    @AvidGuideUser: Thanks for the notice! I have fixed the issue. Currently restructuring the site.

  17. AvidGuideUser

    What happened to the night walker guide? It keeps redirecting me to the first version, which is outdated. O_o

  18. Anymouse

    Is there a pet guide? Just wondering what pets I should get, mostly based on what each pet have as default skills. And I’m wondering what pet combinations should I go for.

    @Mazta: Thanks for spotting the mistake! I have moved it to Knights of Cygnus.

  20. Mazta

    Why is Mihile listed as an Adventurer/Explorer? Isn’t he part of Knights of Cygnus?

    @kaitovira: I think your system is capable of playing MapleStory even though it has 2 cores and 2 GB. But I’m not sure it would be lagless since it has lots of background images it needs to process.

  22. kaitovira

    can i play this game with vga intel HD graphic – ironlake ?
    btw my processor is intel core i5 M 460 @2.53 GHz and 4GB RAM :3

  23. Perry

    Do you ever get tired of updating this site?

  24. usavictor

    oh yeah, sometimes the pop up ad won’t really work

  25. usavictor

    The random ads that when you click on a link they will appear as new tab and sends you to sites that are random and make probably absolutely no sense.
    Lesson: Always close pop up ads for better web experience. And don’t forget that they are random sites!

  26. Ayumilove Post author

    @Aaron: Thanks for your suggestion. Could you recommend some of the ad network you used for your websites and share your experiences on the good/bad?

  27. Aaron

    Hi there! I’ve been using your site for years now, for skill builds, leveling guides, and hairstyles. In fact, I think hairstyles were what brought me here originally, many years ago.

    I noticed the little message on your sidebar the other day about whitelisting ads, which reminded me to turn off adblock for your site. However, when I refreshed the page, I discovered there weren’t any banner ads anywhere. I looked around a bit, then realized that another tab had opened up and I didn’t notice. Oh dear.

    I’ve ran several websites in the past that have been using ads, and I just wanted to offer you a little bit of advice. Try switching to non-intrusive banner ads, maybe one at the top of the page and one on the sidebar. Nothing annoys people more than pop-ups, and from what I’ve seen, anything you make from them doesn’t really counteract the interference it puts on your users. You’re more likely to get people to complain and use adblock, which drops your earnings to 0.

    I really do enjoy this site, and I’d hate to see it bogged down by intrusive ads.

    @make this PLSSS: Sorry, I’m no expert on fashion too :( Perhaps someone else could advice on that.

    @Ian: I’m currently running on Windows 7 and later upgrading straight to Windows 10 once they have launch a stable release. Really dislike the tiling system in Windows 8 :D

  30. Ayumilove Post author

    @Adrian: You could find all the job listed on the right side panel. Thanks for notifying me about the missing job in this article. I have added Beast Tamer right away :)

  31. Adrian

    Where is Beast Tamer? Is beast tamer useless now? i really enjoy playing beast tamer :(

  32. Ian

    Ayumilove sorry to trouble you but I can’t seem to download maplestory on windows 8. I’ve tried all sorts of methods but it doesn’t work . Do u perhaps know how to download maplestory on windows 8

  33. make this PLSSS vvv

    Ayumilove can you please make a guide on looks? because i have no sence in fashion lol.

  34. Ayumilove Post author

    @Guest12: To me, most classes are kinda balance. Usually the ones that are just release such as Xenon, Eunwol will be overpowered and later nerfed. The one that is most fun for me is Demon Avenger and Soul Master aka Dawn Warrior. These are the 2 classes I leveled highest among the rest of the other jobs. It might not suit your taste since different players have different liking.

  35. Guest12

    Hi ayumilove, I was just wondering which class in maplestory is fun and NOT overpowered. Could you give me some advice? Thanks in advance.

  36. guest1234

    hello ayumilove, I am a gms player. i have a bug where in azwan, monsters hp doesn’t go down (in attack, occupy, defend modes). Because of this, I can’t do azwan. Is this my own computer problem or does everyone else have this problem too?
    please reply

  37. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Shawn Jun, I think it wouldn’t be much of a problem. You can try it out first :) Are you using a PC to play? Current CPU (Ivy Bridge and Haswell CPU) are above that GHz. If you have an entry-level graphic card, it shouldn’t matter.

  38. Shawn Jun

    If my computer is 1.7GHz and has 10gb of RAM , Will it have any problems playing maplestory ? This is because as you said the minimum requirement to play maplestory is 1.8GHz

  39. LAI that ultimate adventure quest have been extract from the current maplesea?? Thank you

  40. Its Me

    Hey ayumilove, sorry to talk this topic in here, because i can’t leave a comment on that bandit guide. Ok here we go, i have a 100 lvl shadower and I added my dark flare skill(3rd job) to max, which it causes my venom(3rd job) doesnt max and in 4th job a skill called toxic venom and i cant add it cause it requires venom(3rd job) skill to max…and i really like it so much. But this seems to force me to don’t play it because I mess up this char and its useless when i got to higher lvl….=( need help~

  41. Ayumilove Post author

    Thank Sean Kwan for letting me know how the guides here help you :)

    Hi DemonPathz, it would require approximately 150+ MB. At this point of time, a fresh MapleStory installation would take up to 3.5 GB (Gigabytes) of space in your hard disk.

  43. DemonPathz

    may i know what is the disk space needed for justice patch?

  44. Sean Kwan

    Ayumilove, thank you so much for the many guides you have given us, regarding Maple, other games, I had fun playing your own games too! Please continue to workhard, I’ll spread your hard work to other people on Facebook, (The ones I can..and ask them to spread too!)

    Thx! It helps!
