Maplestory has a lot of different classes and jobs over the last few years ever since it was released. In each updates, there are ussally atleast 1 or sometimes up to 2 different new maplestory classes get introduce to us players. When Maplestory was first launch in April 29th of 2003, they only have 4 classes which is Thief, Warrior, Magician, and Archer. Out of the Four classes that was introduce to us, the Theif also known as Bandit job was the most popular classes of all time due to its special speed like Flash Jump and Haste. Flash Jump allows you to Jump a certain distance which is really helpful in a lot of situation for players. As leveling get more easier and faster, more maplers chooses the class Thief and it get way over populated. Nexon finally decided to give all classes the ability of Flash Jump just to even out the Class’s populations.
- Magician: Battle Mage, Beast Tamer, Evan
- Thief: Dual Blade, Night Walker, Phantom, Xenon
- Warrior: Aran, Demon Avenger, Demon Slayer, Zero
- Bowman: Wild Hunter, Mercedes, Wind Archer
- Pirate: Jett, Angelic Buster, Thunder Breaker
The follow list above are one of the most popular classes in maplestory 1. Ofcourse there are a handful more jobs to list but I only choose the one that players play the most at the moment. Nexon always like to re-adjust new jobs ability in every updates to balance out their skills and performance. One of the most biggest and recent updates in MS history was the Big Bang update.
Here is my own opinion on which Job I like the most. Honestly speaking, you should choose the job that matches your personality the best and not because of someone else opinions or because it is one of the strongest class. The most strongest job doesn’t mean that it will be one of the most fun to play. Trust me, I have started playing maplestory way back in 2007 and I’ve experienced so many different things while exploring the adventures in MS. Anyways, back to the topic, my most favorite job would be Phantom. Its a thief class type and the reason why I love Phantom so much is because they are really fast and flexible. They are able to copy other people skills and use it as their own attacks. Pretty cool right, no other jobs can do those thing. Only downside about this skill is that you can only copy the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd job skills. You are not able to copy 4th job skills because that will make Phantom the most powerful class in the game!
