Explanation:
Paladin 3rd Job Skill Build Guide is somewhat confusing abit due to a unique special skill called Combat Orders. At max level, when you buff yourself with Combat Orders, it adds +2 Levels to all skill (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th jobs) temporarily. Only 4th Job skills can surpass the max level (Example: Level 30 Skill +2 Levels = Level 32). Therefore, you can cap the Supportive Skills (e.g. Threaten and HP Recovery) at 2 levels lower so you can distribute the remaining SP (Skill Point) into Rush.

    @TheSwordGod: To get a pure damage of 300K, you will need to use 5 things: Maple Union + Potential System + Hyper Stat + Star Force + Link Skills. This 300K damage will be amplified by your skills such as Paladin 4th Job Skill “Blast” 318% damage x 300K pure damage = 954K damage (not inclusive other skill buffs from Elemental Charge). Get 30 mule characters to Level 140 and place them to gain “Weapon Attack” and “Strength”. Make most mules Warrior job as it provides STR (Strength) and this significantly boost your Paladin primary stat. For Potential System, get all equips (weapon, armor, accessory) to at least 6% STR Epic Rank, this will easily rake up 100% STR with 15 equipments. This doubles your base STR. Star Force all equips to 11 stars for unfunded and funded go up to 16 stars. For Hyper Stat, put all to Damage and Boss Damage. You will max both of this stats upon reaching Level 200. For Link skills, get the one for bossing/training based on your preference. See this guide: http://ayumilove.net/maplestory-link-skills-guide/ – Once you reach Level 200, go do Arcane River daily quest to upgrade Arcane Symbols. This alone along with Core Skills upgrade provides a great boost of damage by 50~100K.

    Hi! I just started playing MS again after almost 10 years being away. I have a lvl165 Paladin and am just wondering if they get tankier after lvl 200? I see some videos on YouTube with Paladins only take 1 damage, but I am still receiving a decently high amount of damage, on top of that I also want to know what damage should I be putting out? I am doing about 350K on a crit with basic bare weapons and armor. I see that you are doing some really high damage 1M+ so I just want to know if I am on the right track.

  7. Ayumilove Post author

    @Vin: Personally for me I encounter the same issue as you too. Hence, I created all the jobs that MapleStory offers and found out the one that is right for me. The things I looked for are having lots of mobility and flexibility in attacking (unlike magician which they can’t perform jump and attack), perform high damage output without needing to spam button (e.g. Aran) and receive less damage when tanking (e.g. Shade) and does not require combo-ing to deal more damage (e.g. Mercedes/Aran). You will need to find out what are the things you like in a job and list it out so you can identify which jobs that you like most.

    Paladin need to first start chargin at least 2 or more different type of elements to gain more damage. You can try Kinesis. It is quite fun for me in terms of bossing and training on mobs.

  8. Vin

    Hello! I’m a old player but too noob to be considered a new player quitted and play for on and off.
    I need help, I can’t seems to enjoy playing a job for long term partially because of how maple need to have fun to deal decent damage and to be fun. It affects me quite hard.. I use to play bishop alot. And I really like flashy skills however I can’t micro as in use alot of skills.. maybe 5 at most.. I have been actually trying dk a few days ago. But yesterday go re created a demon avenger cause of how unfunded he is. However when my friends talk about paladin, mage or pirate I felt like playing it.. I can’t decide. What should I do?
    Does paladin need to use all the 3 charge or all of the 3-5th job skills?
    It’s so sad that why da don’t have new active skills.. or aoe big enough..
    Ps I wanted to play mage or some cute job like angelic before or viper too but I can’t stand it to being useless if I can’t fund(no money)

    @AshuraX: Thanks for pointing out! I have updated Heaven’s Hammer / Sanctuary cooldown from 180 seconds to 30 seconds.

  10. AshuraX

    Level 1 Heaven’s Hammer / Sanctuary cooldown should be 30 seconds instead of 180 seconds

  11. LacusAmarth

    What happened to our beloved Paladins?
    No where can I find changes in update notes and whatnot, but skills are acting all weird.
    Cooldowns changed, ELemelntal Charge is only 30 seconds now, blast doesn’t buff….

    What is going on?

  12. pat.

    you are one dedicated son of a gun. #respect

  13. Eddie

    ‘Divine Shield’ has been changed to ‘Blessing Armor’.

    Effects had been changed too.

  14. DizzyMurloc

    Cooldown cutter for lvl 155 hyper active is now 30%, not 50%

  15. foolishmunkey

    I don’t know if it was addressed in the patch, but the Paladin’s Elemental Charge is kinda weird now. It looks like it’s timed and Blast doesn’t do its original buff in ATK.

  16. Blamoo

    With the V patch, most of the Pros of the Pros and Cons are outdated…

    Now paladins take too much dmg and have less status resistance ):

  17. Ayumilove Post author

    @Paladin: Hi, I have updated the guide above based on your comment :-)

  18. Paladin

    I believe the trio core meta should be blast /divine(holy) charge /sanctuary (heavens hammer)

    The guide says lightning charge. Holy does more

  19. Ariel

    Edward – as did? õ.o

  20. Edward

    sound crazy but Pally can spam Heaven’s Hammer in ElliniaMS :v

  21. DarkPAPIKO

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dfmpwc6GraE Miren sus node

  22. SeriousPaladin

    Heavens hammer cd is 14 seconds on Msea. And with the hyper it’s around 10secs

  23. Froz22

    So you need to use all the charges skills before using blast to get maximum effect?

  24. Ayumilove Post author

    @Blamoo: Blessed Hammer is a 5th Job Skill that will be released in future which is once MapleStory Beyond patch is available in GMS and MapleSEA.

  25. Blamoo

    where can i get the Blessed Hammer node? i triple checked all the pages on the node crafting thing and havend’t found it…

  26. Paladinnoob

    Uh how does blast look like after beyond update

  27. Ayumilove Post author

    @Chumba Wumba Big Daddy Black: Thanks for sharing your experiences as a Paladin. I have added your cons into the guide above.

  28. Ayumilove Post author

    @Neonnnn: Buff Duration does not affect USE items, Hyper Skills which includes 5th job skills, Exp Coupons in Cash Invetory.

  29. Chumba Wumba Big Daddy Black

    I main a paladin so I believe I can speak fairly well on the class.

    While boasting a high defense, making it very unlikely for you to die and need potions, since your nigh invulnerability covers your HP and a simple familiar like a Jr Boogie easily covers you MP, but is very limited and repetitive in terms of attacks, since there are fairly few options. Since you reach a damage peak early on, it becomes increasingly noticeable that your damage will start seeing significant diminishes, making it harder to do higher damage without good equipment. Paladins are most effective at bossing for their 1v1 damage, but in terms of mobbing, are not very effective; despite having mob herding skills, these are paled in comparison to other classes.

  30. Neonnnn

    Are the 5th job skills affected by buff duration increments e.g. Mechanic character card

  31. Paladinnoob

    Is heavens hammer or smite shield better to use against bosses?

  32. Hoan

    Hi, skill Elemental Force / Boyd Elemental passive: Increases Flame Charge, Blast, Lightning Charge skills’ damage by 210%. I don’t understand 210%. Increases 210% = x2.1 time. If my dame when have not this skill is 10m per line, then when have it is 21m per line ? Can you hepl me? sorry my english so bad :D

  33. john

    my answer to you KelvinTHM: is the 2H Sword, or the 2H Hammer weapon.. both are good, but the hammer is slower, and the sword is more average…

  34. KelvinTHM

    is 2h sword or 2h mace better for paladin?

  35. The Flash

    Any general tips to playing paladin to maximize its efficiency?

  36. SirPopAlot

    Hey what weapon do you prefer? 1h or 2h?

  37. Ayumilove Post author

    @Random Guy: These warriors have their pros and cons. Try checking them out to see which suits your playstyle (Defensive = Paladin / Offensive = Dark Knight / Balance = Hero)

  38. Random Guy

    HI hero / pala / dk better ?

  39. Ayumilove Post author

    @Yichor: Adventurer classes requires large funding to deal good damage compared to newer classes such as Kaiser/Angelic Buster/Xenon/etc.

  40. Yichor

    is paladin have good damage without big funding

  41. DevionKnight

    Hey I need help,
    So I have just maxed my Combat Order skill, which adds +2lvl to certain skills, however I found out that all my charge attacks are not adding over the cap level of lvl30, I expected it to be lvl30+lvl2

    So my question is, what are the skills that can go over the skill cap level and what are the skills that cannot go over the skill cap level with Combat Order?

    Thanks in advanced

  42. Whynn

    Seems like High paladin is 10% def ignore with Blunt Weapons, not 5%, still leveling it at 12 but yea, 10%, not 5% for GMS.

  43. Ayumilove Post author

    @yichor: Dark Knight is easier to play and difficult to get kill as it has highest Max HP with Hyper Body Skill and has passive skill that leeches enemy HP as your own. Hero has a skill that regenerates your HP and MP very quickly, making it easy to grind for meso without losing much while training. It has short attacking range compared to Dark Knight and Paladin but deals massive stable damage. Paladin on the other hand is a mixture of a mage and warrior. It has the highest defense among the rest of the warrior and can deal elemental attacks (fire/ice/lightning/holy) for extra damage. For unique playstyle, go with Paladin. For newbie easy playstyle, go with Dark Knight. For all-rounded warrior, go with Hero. If you would like more raw damage, go with Kaiser.

  44. yichor

    hi ayumi i want to ask hero dark knight paladin which better ?

  45. Ayumilove Post author

    @Jozee: Hi, are you using a blunt weapon (mace) instead of a sword? I think the skill animation changes when you swap weapon. If it doesn’t, perhaps MapleStory has yet to update the skill animation when using Paladin’s Blast Skill.

  46. Jozee

    Hi Ayumi, why when I attacking with blast it looks like a hammer?

  47. Anonymous

    To the person below me: Blast still consumes 5 charges for the buff, but when u have the buff on already, blast doesn’t take any charges away and will not refresh until the buff is gone. When u use blast after the buff it gives is gone, it will consume 5 charges for the buff again.

  48. Kev

    Need clarifications, the reboot paladin, according to what is stated there, plays like:
    -Accumulate 5 charges
    -Use blast for buff

    Then what? The buff lasts for 90 seconds, and “charges not lost during buff?”
    Am i right to assume that using blast to gain the buff no longer requires a 5 charges stack? Or is it “use blast again after 90 seconds for infinite buffs as long as i have a 5 charge stack”?

    I am in msea and would like to plan ahead for this seemingly huge improvement to the frustrating and troublesome paladin charge mechanic. Thanks alot!

  49. xxjoexx

    hero or paladin who better at strong damage and strong survivalrate at training higher lvl mob

  50. Edison

    the latest update lightning charge and divine charge which more strong?before update is lightning charge more damage

  51. User A

    White Knight (3rd Job) Skill build guide seems to use more SP than what is available. Did I miss out gaining extra SP from quest, or is there a mistake with the SP calculation? If I am not wrong, there should be only 120 SP available for 3rd job while the guide requires 124 SP. Could anyone help me with this please? Thanks!

  52. Stradmore

    can you guys give me some tips on how to use the pally skills? ^_^

  53. King91OM

    In maplesea,

    Paladin holding a mace have better animation than a sword. Especially when using charge skills. Blast remains debatable for sword or mace~

  54. apple

    maplesea has the following skill decription
    Advanced charge lv 1: attack count +0
    Advanced charge lv 10: attack count +1

  55. Ayumilove Post author

    @Ethan Nguyen: I have added Paladin pros and cons. Feel free to contribute yours if you found one after experiencing with Paladin :)

  56. Neko

    Elemental Void also doesnt breaks level 30, 2 more SP

  57. Neko

    Its better to leave stance at 28 because of Combat Orders Nature or not?simply to have 2 extra sp for next skills, altough theyre not so important

  58. PapaGrimly

    @PaladinV: Hyper Demon Force or Hyper DF is a hyper stat that has no benefit to any class other than the Demon Slayer, seeing as they’re the only class that uses Demon Force.

  59. Ethan Nguyen

    Give Paladin’s a pros and cons pl0x.

  60. hoohoo

    i have a question.. since i know rosary can active “shield mastery” effect.. and now 2hand + rosary better or 1hand + shield will be better?

  61. Tapay

    @lol Yes. They can equip a 2h weapon with a Rosary, a 1h weapon with a rosary, or a 1h weapon with a shield. You can’t wear a shield and rosary, though.

  62. lol

    Hi, i would like to know whether paladin can equip 2 handed blunt weapon + Rosario?

  63. PaladinV

    hey what is hyper df? do i need it?

  64. Saboo

    Ayumilove Paladin or Dark Knight is proler?:D

  65. seah jeremy

    @dragonrider: spamming holy charge by itself doesn’t build up ur charges. u need to switch charges for ur elemental charge to build up. only after u’ve built up to 5 elemental charges then u spam holy all the way.

  66. awkwardkorean

    Rosaries give you the effects of “shield mastery”. I checked the stats on my pally.

  67. Dragonrider

    @tamago holy charge and blast spamming is the way

  68. tamago

    Should I macro all the elemental skills for maximum efficienty? Like fire-ice-thunder- holy, rince and repeat? Or just spam holy?

  69. Hilary

    @Lone fillet
    Sorry bout yesterday, seems i was wrong, nexon aint giving OP card cause they meant Weapon Attack as in your range, like how it says in the stats window, they call your range weapon attack, so sorry. Buccaneer wins, cause they meant range and clearly state range on bucc, but say weapon attack on pally when they meant range. If it was actual weapon attack Paladin would be way better. Since its just range it losses. I made a Pally for nothing it seems.

  70. Hilary

    @Lone fillet
    Dude, Paladin and Ice / Lightning Mage cards are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better than the buccaneer card. Check it, you get a maximum of 1250 damage added to your range on a lvl 200 buccaneer boosting your lvl 250 character. Compare that with 420 bonus attack for a lvl 210 character boosted by a lvl 200 Paladin. That 500 attack does a lot more range than a measly 1250 damage for a 250 character. No “if”‘s, “and”‘s or “but”‘s about it. Paladin trumps buccaneer any day.

  71. Lone fillet

    I mean dk vs paladin

  72. Lone fillet

    Ayumi just want to ask , if do have the same equip with paladin whose damage higher ? Who is more capable of bossing

  73. Ayumilove Post author

    @Mastel: I have updated the Paladin skill details. Thanks for the notice!

  74. Ayumilove Post author

    @Lonefillet: Both are roughly the same. Just that having a Warrior card allows you to pair with another 2 more Warrior card for its awesome 3-warrior card combo deck effect.

  75. Lonefillet

    just wanted to ask, paladin’s card better or buccaneer ?

  76. Mastel

    at 4th class the Charge atk all Increase by 2 hits, when max Advanced Charge

    Ayumi, MapleSEA Paladin Skill have Differents Stats.
    Blast Max Increase Total damage is 210%
    and there are other skill……..
    don’t know it’s better or what.

  77. Andy

    I’m pretty sure Ice Charge and Flame Charge hit four enemies, and Lightning Charge hits six. Not sure about Holy.

  78. Ayumilove Post author

    @Jason: Which MapleStory region and version are you playing from? Also, whats your Paladin Lightning Charge Level and its stats?

  79. Jason

    A lot of your numbers are off (blast, lightning charge, and advanced charge for examples). I don’t know if Paladin’s got buffed after you made this or what.

  80. Ayumilove Post author

    @Shadow: The ads is use to pay the hosting site fees.

  81. Shadow

    You can’t do anything on this site without ads popping up…does she want money that badly… even for writing a comment an ad popped up like wtf…

  82. Icky

    @RailBird: You’re not the only one. I’m guessing it’s permanent since the only time it goes away is when you log out. So, I would think of it as a temp/perm buff. Temp because it does go away, but perm because you only have to do it once to get the bonuses.

  83. RailBird

    I’ve created my first ever Page and I have a question about their specialized skill. The skill info on this site says the duration is 8 seconds and I’ve seen videos where, once you stop attack for 8 seconds, the buff disappears. However, the skill seemed to be charged up permanently after I alternated between both second job charges. The icon in the top corner didn’t show the duration effect and kept showing that it was charged up 5 times (which I assume is the current max. at 2nd job). Also, right clicking the icon didn’t cancel it. Has this since been changed or is this a bug?

  84. G-Man

    Following this guide how many mastery books will i need after the RED patch?

  85. WildHeartless

    oh btw Ayumi… one question. Paladins hyper skill Blast Critical Chance… does that increase the critical chance for the skill itself or to the buff the skill gives???

  86. WildHeartless

    nope… went full on 2h blunt from the get go because blunt weapon charges are smexy… except the first 20-30 levels until I could get that free weapon rental from the event.

    I have seen several people confirm that the beads are now applicable for shield masterys effect… maybe it is a typo, but it goes up and down when i equip and unequip the beads… so… shrug

  87. Ayumilove Post author

    @WildHeartless: Did you equip a shield before equipping Rosary Beads?

  88. WildHeartless

    i have a secondary weapon (rosary beads) and my w.def went up quite a bit after adding into shield mastery… so not sure what you are referring to ayumi.

  89. Holyknight

    may i ask what is the something else? because im playing paladin as my main so i would like to know further about this confusing skills. Since you have tested this would you mind to tell me if the defense wont applied then will the guard rate still have?

  90. Ayumilove Post author

    @Holyknight: You will need to equip a shield offhand otherwise the shield mastery effect will not take into effect. I have tested this :) Secondary weapon is something else.

  91. Holyknight

    Do paladin still need shield to have the shield mastery effect on? or can sub it with secondary weapon?

  92. Ayumilove Post author

    Thanks slg369 for the correction! I have updated the required level for the mentioned Paladin Hyper Skills :)

  93. slg369

    The Hyper skills other than the Threaten ones are in the wrong order, it’s like this:
    149 Blast: +1 hit
    168 Blast: +20% damage
    189 Blast: +20% crit
    155 Heaven’s Hammer: cooldown 50%
    177 Heaven’s Hammer: +1 hit
    195 Heaven’s Hammer: +20% damage

  94. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Loc, thanks for the notice! I have replaced Blessing Armor with Divine Shield :D

  95. Loc

    “1. Lightning Charge, Rush, Blessing Armor (1)”

    Shouldn’t Blessing Armor be Divine Shield?

  96. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Kiritokunnnn, all skill are made available. No more skill books. Only mastery books remain but they will be change to generic mastery books which can be use on ANY skill that requires level uncap/unlock (Level 20 and Level 30). Trade those mastery books to the NPC located at Henesys or Leafre. If you do not have mastery books to trade, purchase from him for 7 million (Level 20 Mastery Book) and 10 million (Level 30 Mastery Book)

  97. Kiritokunnnn

    Ayumi,after red patch does my paladin receive adv charge once i job adv or do i have to hunt for the sb from chaos zak??

  98. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi JDPsyPhantom, its damage not weapon attack. It has been tested by several Paladin players in MapleStory. This damage is not reduced by enemy defense. Basically link damage added to your nett damage after all reduction has been applied.

  99. JDPsyPhantom

    Hi ayumi,

    i have a confuse with this character about the card deck…

    when we talk about final damage, we talk about all range? for example

    if i got my range in 21k – 23k with my paladin in lvl 30

    Final Damage +(0.5/1/1.5/2 * Paladin Level) im going to get 23000+(0.5*30)=23015

    or we talk about att?

  100. Jerrick

    Hi ayumi, do I still need to get adv charge from zakum in the red patch

  101. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Ren, I can confirm to you that GMS has released New Explorers (RED) on December 4 2013 :) Time to login and play!

  102. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi eargoo, sorry for the late reply. Yeah, Blast now hits only 1 enemy instead of 6 enemies. I presume its meant as a bossing skill, not likely used for training. Mostly using charges to KO enemies.

  103. eargoo

    Hi Ayumi, correct me if i’m wrong, I thought Blast has been change to 6 enemies dmg instead of 1?

  104. Ren

    Hello Ayumi ! When do you think the new Explorers will be released on Global ? Will it be soon or on the late 2013 ?
    I have a White Knight and a Dragon Knight. While the Dragon Knight is not bad at all, I have the impression my WK had pretty low damage, which make it hard to up to 100, and I hope it’ll get better with the revamp :/

  105. J

    Hi~ Heard that there was a recent “nerfing” of the paladin’s shield mastery in KMS which resulted in the drop of WD and MD to only 50%. But referring to the above, it’s back to 250% at max lvl 10. Is this 250% WD & MD the newest and latest updates as at today?

  106. Isaac

    Ok thanks :D

  107. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi Issac, Advance Charge drop rate is extremely low when you hunt from Zakum or Hilla. You will need to go raiding on Chaos Zakum Boss which has normal drop rate for Paladin’s Advance Charge Skill Book. Other methods to get it is purchasing from Free Market.

  108. Isaac

    I have a paladin in maplesea but I don’t have advance charge…… Even after zaking a few times. How do I get the skill?

  109. Ayumilove Post author

    Hi John Keyes, thanks for stopping by to leave a comment. I’m currently working on Hero 2013 Skill Build Guide before moving on to the Paladin 2013. Dark Knight Skill Build Guide is now available for viewing :)

  110. John Keyes

    still working on this one. hopefully its enjoyable :P i like the paladin class alot.
