MapleStory2 Priest Skills

Maplestory2 Priest (메이플스토리2 프리스트): Spread the blessings of the light to the lost and hopeless! The Priest selflessly works to hold back the darkness that threatens Maple World. This hero commands holy power with a scepter and a codex of prayers. Priests can restore lost HP and remove debuffs from allies. As a result, they can generate as much of a threat (if not more) than a main tank. However, Priests tend to not last long when they are attacked by multiple enemies at once. Therefore, they should still be protected to ensure the future survival of the group. It was once said that all the grand battles were won and done with, but when the Darkness does return, the Priest will not set his duty aside, and will bring down his Holy might on any that threaten Maple World. Quote: “Okay everyone, remember! Don’t get too far away from me, follow the Knight’s lead and please stay out of the fire. Stay out of the fire. Stay out of the fire! GET OUT OF THE F-“

    In the video, you list ‘Wave of Purification’, but I don’t this skill listed here. Is this skill missing?

    @Don: I could not recall the music playing in the background. If I’m able to remember it, I’ll post it here :-)

    @Jared: The only time you do job advancements in MapleStory2 is in the city of Tria, advancing as Beginner to Priest. Unlike MapleStory1 that requires you to visit the NPC Trainer every job advancement, MapleStory2 does not require visiting Trainer in Tria which is a convenience!

  5. Jared

    Would it also be possible to include the location where you need to do job advancements? Or is this exclusivly a priest skill guide?

    @Dnsasori: Thanks for your feedback! The Large Sword Mastery skill has been removed from Priest’s Skill.

  7. Dnsasori

    Large Sword Mastery is not Priest’s skill
