Maple Story Thief Guide – Thief Build, Job Advancement

As a Thief, you are going to have the choice of advancing at level 30 to become an Assassin or a Bandit.

While you do not have to choose which one to become until you reach level 30, it is a very good idea to know

which one you will want to advance to as soon as you hit level 10 so that you may spec and use your Skill Points in the correct build to help you down the road as you progress in the game.

As an Assassin, you are a quick range attacker that becomes one of the most powerful classes in the game.

While as an Assassin, you can travel the world fast and do extreme amounts of damage from afar, but the downside to Assassins is that they are very expensive to train. You will need to spend a lot of money on an Assassin while levelling and training him but as you reach higher levels you will be rewarded.

As a Bandit, you are able to deal high amounts of damage at high levels and they cost less money to train while levelling and buying armour. While Bandit is extremely fast and can dodge a lot of enemy’s attacks, they still have to go toe to toe with their foes dealing melee attacks while an Assassin can kill from afar.

If you are tired of playing with the other Maple Story characters such as Warriors, you may want to have a change of character class and try your hand at being a thief!

Our MapleStory Thief training guide has all the details for training your Thief character.

MapleStory Guide and Tips – MapleStory Tips on Maple Island

When you first arrive on Maple Island as a MapleStory beginner, you can complete a series of quests as part of your new game.

If you plan on doing them, you must do them while you are still on Maple Island because once you reach level 10 for your MapleStory character and you leave, you cannot go back to the island again to do the quests.

Here is a list of the quests on Maple Island:

Name: Borrowing the Mirror

Place: Maple Island: Mushroom Town

Name: Roger and the Apple

Place: Maple Island: Mushroom Town

Name: Nina and Sen’s Dinner

Place: Maple Island: Mushroom Town

Name: Todd’s How to Hunt

Place: Maple Island: Mushroom Town

Name: Bigg’s Collection of Items

Place: Maple Island: Southperry

Name: Letter to Lucas

Place: Maple Island: Maple Road

Before you leave Maple Island, you want to make sure that you already have a good feel of the MapleStory game. Get yourself comfortable with the various key configuration and you understand how quests work in Maple Story.

Once you leave, you will then be ready to complete your first Job Advancement and become the class that you have been looking forward to.

Now that you are ready to leave Maple Island, go to South Perry and talk to Shanks. You will have to pay him 150 Mesos to board the ship for your departure from the island. The ship will then take you to Victoria Island.

As a beginner you can travel around easily at inexpensive rates but once you choose your first job, the price of traveling in the game will increase.
