1.0 – Note of Warning
This is my first guide that I typed up from memory so if I miss out anything, feel free to tell me so. On another note, a Strless Archer is really quite hard to make if you don’t have the patience to make one. A Strless archer is an archer that only puts AP onto DEX on their whole maple career. If you have a lot of patience, you can try and make one, however if you don’t have any/little patience, I suggest you don’t make one. If you don’t have the patience to make one, but you want to, you can always try making one on a private server.

Things you need before you make one:
-At least above 490k+ mesos. (To scroll your War Bow with 100% to compensate for your damage since you can’t equip normal bows)
-A TRUCKLOAD of patience. (Seriously)
-A Weapon Attack glove (Optional, but it can help a lot).
-Maple Bow, Maple Soul Searcher, Maple Kandiva Bow or Bow of Magical Destruction. (BoMD for short)
-Another funded character. (Optional, but helpful)

If you have most/all of the above, let’s continue.
P.S: If you’re new to Maple, don’t use this guide.

1.1 – Pros and Cons of a Strless
This is a pros and cons for Strless Archers, in comparison with normal Archers.

Pros
-More accuracy than normal Archers.
-More avoid than a normal Archers.
-Higher max damage than normal Archers.
-Unique, because Strless Archers are very rare/uncommon to see.
-Most Maple Bows are very cheap.
-Normal Hell levels (lvl 50 – 60) for Strless Hunters will become a little less hard. (If you have a well scrolled Maple Soul Searcher)
-They attack a lot faster due to Maple Bows and more “Hands” stat than normal Hunters.
-Stronger than a normal Hunter at lvl 35 to lvl 43 and above due to Maple Bow and Soul Searcher.

Cons
-Unable to equip normal bows that require STR, which cripples your damage in early levels.
-Wider damage range, meaning unstable damage early and late levels (With Bow Mastery maxed, it still can be unstable at times).
-Hell levels very early at lvl 15 –35, because you would still have to use that War Bow.
-At lvl 80 and above you will start to get slightly weaker if you have a Maple Kandiva/BoMD that has below 100 weapon attack.
-Hard to find Maple Bows from monster drops.
-The damage between normal Hunters and Strless Hunters will almost be equal or a little higher at higher levels.
-Very unstable damage at early levels (mostly at lvl +15), too inconsistent.

1.2 – Starting your character
Since there’s no dice roll, I don’t know what stat you start off with. (Quit Maple ages ago). I’ll add more stuff onto this section once I know more about it. If you have AP, dump it all on DEX.

1.3 – Maple Island
At this point, go through the maple training camp and do quests there, once your out of that place I suggest you kill snails.

P.S: Avoid killing Pigs, Stumps and Slimes. Do quests for exp.

Level 1 - 5 or 6: Snails
Level 6 - 7: Blue Snails or Shrooms
Level 7 – 10: Shrooms or Red Snails if you like.

Once you reach lvl 10 or lvl 9 (80% exp or more), you can go to Southperry and talk to Shanks which lets you go to Victoria Island for free. (I think if you do a quest)

1.4 – Victoria Island
Once you’re at Victoria Island, head to Olaf to your right (he looks like a Viking) and click to him to do a quest, answer the questions and you’ll receive 65 exp. Then do another quest, which involves the career you want and head to Henesys. When you reach Henesys head to Mushroom Park and then walk all the way to your right until you reach a tree-like house. Go inside it and complete The Path of Bowman quest, which gives you a lot of exp. Talk to her again and become an Archer.


1.5 – Archer Skills + Skill Build
Once you have become an Archer, I’ll explain some skills that Archers use.

The Blessing of Amazon
Type: Passive
Description: Increases accuracy.
Mastered at: Level 16
Pre-requisites: None

My opinion: Useless, since you’ll have a truckload of accuracy from adding only DEX and from maxing Bow Mastery. Only put 3 SP into it to unlock The Eye of Amazon.

The Eye of Amazon
Type: Passive
Description: Increases the range of attack for both bows and crossbows.
Mastered at: Level 8
Pre-requisites: The Blessing of Amazon Level 3

My opinion: Max it.

Critical Shot
Type: Passive
Description: Allows you to perform a critical attack with a certain success rate.
Mastered at: Level 20
Pre-requisites: None

My Opinion: It’s a must max, it can boost your damage a lot throughout your entire maple career.

Focus
Type: Active, Supportive
Description: Focussing to temporarily increase accuracy and avoid.
Mastered at: Level 20
Pre-requisites: The Blessing of Amazon Level 3

My Opinion: You’ll max this skill near the end of your Hunter career if you chose to go with the FA-less build. You cannot say no to 20+ avoid. mush1k.gif

Arrow Blow
Type: Active, Offensive
Description: Fires an arrow with authority. Applies more damage than usual.
Mastered at: Level 20
Pre-requisites: None

My Opinion: You don’t need to max this. Double Shot is a lot stronger than this skill because Double Shot has a chance to activate Critical Shot with each arrow. You only need 1 SP onto it to unlock Double Shot.

Double Shot
Type: Active, Offensive
Description: Fires two arrows at once to attack an enemy twice.
Mastered at: Level 20
Pre-requisites: Arrow Blow Level 1

My Opinion: It’s another must max skill, because this skill has more of a chance of hitting a critical with both arrows. You’ll be using this skill until you max Strafe, which is at 3rd job. You’ll be mad not to max it.

Double Shot – Level 20



1.6 – Archer Training Places lvl 10-30
Since you will be a lot weaker than normal Archer, you will have to stick to training on weaker monsters for longer. P.S: DO NOT DO KERNING OR ARIANT PQ UNTIL LVL 30. You are far too weak to do so and will result in wasting pots.

Level 10-14: Just stick to Slimes.
Level 15-17: Orange Mushrooms, Pigs, Stumps, Henesys PQ.
Level 18-20: Pigs, Dark Stumps, Orange Mushrooms, Henesys PQ.
Level 21-24: Ribbon Pigs, Green Mushrooms (if possible).
Level 25-26: Green Mushrooms, Blue Mushrooms, Ghost Stumps.
Level 27-30: Horned Mushroom, Zombie Mushroom.

1.7 – The path of a Hunter
Congratulations on levelling to 30! It looks like your patience has been proven worthwhile. You will need to buy lots of HP and MP potions at this point. Once you reach lvl 30, go straight to Henesys and head to Athena, as she will prove your skills. She will give you a letter to give to the 2nd Bowman Instructor. She is located at the Henesys Dungeon Entrance. At the end of Henesys, you will see two portals, one at the bottom and one at the top. Head to the top portal and keep going right until you reach to another portal. Look at your minimap , you should see a green dot (NPC). Go towards it to find her. Once your there, click on her and you will have to collect 30 dark marbles from the monsters. If you die, you will have to do it again, losing your dark marbles collected from before. Then, once you collect all 30 marble talk to the instructor and you will receive a medal. Go back to Henesys and go to Athena. She will ask you, do you want to become a Hunter or Crossbowman. Pick Hunter and put your first SP onto Arrow Bomb.

1.8 – Hunter Skills

Bow Mastery
Type: Passive
Description: Increases the bow mastery and accuracy. It only applies when a bow is in hand.
Mastered at: Level 20
Pre-requisites: None

My Opinion: Max it. It will greatly raise your minimum damage to stop unstable damage. Also max it to lvl 20 if you plan on getting to 4th job because it will unlock Bow Expert on 4th job, which increases your minimum damage even more.

Final Attack – Bow
Type: Passive
Description: With a certain success rate, another attack follows after performing an attacking skill. Only works with a bow in hand.
Mastered at: Level 30
Pre-requisites: Bow Mastery Level 3
Note: This passive skill works with Arrow Blow, Double Shot, and Arrow Bomb. An extra arrow is shot after using the listed skill above and it can activate Critical Shot.

My Opinion: You decide whenever you want to max this skill or not, but be careful because you will have to sacrifice other supportive skills such as Power-Knock Back, Bow Booster and Soul Arrow. It’s pretty powerful and it’s perfect for bossing but it’s useless at 3rd job because Double Shot will be replaced by Strafe and that doesn’t work with FA. If you’re undecided, look at my FAQ Section.

Bow Booster
Type: Active, Supportive
Description: Uses HP and MP to temporarily boost up the attacking speed of the bow. It only works with a bow in hand.
Pre-requisites: Bow Mastery Level 5

My Opinion: Max it. It greatly boosts your speed by one level. For example, if the bow your using has a “Normal” speed, using this skill will increase the bow speed making the speed “Fast”. The order of boosting speed for all weapons goes like this: Slowest>>>Slower>>>>Slow>>>>Normal>>>>Fast>>>>Faster>>>>Fastest

Power-Knock Back
Type: Active, Offensive
Description: Improves the success rate of knocking back the enemies far when swinging the bow. The higher the level, the higher the number of enemies the character can knock down.
Pre-requisites: None

My Opinion: It’s very useful at 2nd job since it knocks all 6 monsters back. It looks like Slash Blast, but with a bow. It’s not used a lot at 3rd job though. Max it.

Soul Arrow
Type: Active, Supportive
Description: Temporarily allows the character to fire arrows without using up the arrows. Only works with a bow in hand.
Mastered at: Level 20
Pre-requisites: Bow Booster Level 5

My Opinion: It’s a must max skill. It can save quite a lot of mesos and hassle by using this skill. Say goodbye to buying arrows.

Arrow Bomb
Type: Active, Offensive
Description: Fires arrows with bombs attached to it. If struck cleanly, the bomb explodes on the enemy, knocking out some of the enemies around with a certain success rate. Can't attack more than 6 at once, and it only works with a bow in hand.
Mastered at: Level 30
Pre-requisites: None

My Opinion: Max it. You will be using this throughout your Hunter career. Useful at stunning a group of monsters at once.

2.0 – Becoming a Ranger
Congratulations on reaching level 70! Now go to El Nath – Chief Residence and speak to Rene. After talking to Rene, head back to Victoria Island and talk to Athena Pierce, which is located in Henesys. Next, find the Door of Dimension located at Sleepy Dungeon V and it’ll bring you to “The Path of the Glittering Crystal”. Walk until the end of the path and enter the portal to defeat the Wiseman’s dark side to obtain the Black Charm.
Return to Athena Pierce and exchange the Black Charm for a Necklace of Strength. Return to El Nath after that and give the item to Rene. Head on to the Holy Ground at the Snowfield (Sharp Cliff II). 1 Dark Crystal is required to answer 5 questions to obtain the Necklace of Wisdom. Again, head back to Rene in El Nath and give her the Necklace of Wisdom.

2.1 – Ranger Skills

Thrust
Type: Passive
Description: Boosts up the moving speed.
Mastered at: Level 20
Pre-requisites: None

My Opinion: Don’t max it. There are other more useful skills than this to max.

Mortal Blow
Type: Passive
Description: For a certain rate, allows you to fire arrows even at a very close range. Even kills a monster with one shot every once in a while.
Mastered at: Level 20
Pre-requisites: None

My Opinion: Not a bad skill. Has a chance of killing a monster at very close range. It’s better than PKB in a way, because not all monsters can be knocked back.

Puppet
Type: Active, Supportive
Description: Summons a puppet (your other self) for a certain amount of time. While the puppet is around, the monsters will attack the puppet, not you.
Mastered at: Level 20
Pre-requisites: None

My Opinion: Quite useful for keeping the monsters attention away from you. I heard that whacking monsters into your puppet with PKB works, a nice combo. Max it if possible.

Inferno
Type: Active, Offensive
Description: Uses fire-based arrows to attack up to 6 monsters at once. Only works when equipped with a bow.
Mastered at: Level 30
Pre-requisites: None

My Opinion: It may be weaker than Arrow Rain but it can be useful for training purposes for killing monsters that are weak against fire-based attacks like Yetis or Ghost Pirates.

Arrow Rain
Type: Active, Offensive
Description: Fires a number of arrows into the sky, attacking up to 6 monsters at once on its way down. Only available when equipped with a bow.
Mastered at: Level 30
Pre-requisites: Mortal Blow Level 5

My Opinion: Max it. It’s usefulness comes in handy when you are trapped in a swarm of mobs, because it has no minimum range so you won’t bow-whack the monsters when using this skill.

Silver Hawk
Type: Active, Offensive
Description: Summons a silver hawk. The hawk will be hovering around you, attacking monsters nearby.
Mastered at: Level 30
Pre-requisites: Puppet Level 5 and 1 Summoning Rock

My Opinion: Max it. You can’t say no to 99% stun at max level.

Strafe
Type: Active, Offensive
Description: Fires 4 arrows at an enemy.
Mastered at: Level 30
Pre-requisites: None

My Opinion: Max it. This skill will be your main offensive skill. Also, it has a chance for 4 arrows activating Critical Shot for each arrow.

2.3 – FAQ Section
Here’s a bunch of questions that will mostly appear up on the subject of Archers.

Q1. Which is stronger Strless Hunters or Strless Crossbowman?
A. Strless Crossbowman because Crossbows will always be stronger than Bows due to different formulas.
Bow - (DEX * 0.9 * 3.4 * Skill Mastery + STR) / 100 * Weapon Attack
Crossbow - (DEX * 0.9 * 3.6 * Skill Mastery + STR) / 100 * Weapon Atack. Copied from hidden-street.net

Q2. Is it too late to revert to a normal Archer?
A. Depends on what level you are. If you are at level 15 or below it’s not too late to change back.

Q3. FA or FA-less?
A. Here’s a guide all about FA, http://forums.maplet...howtopic=103245

Q4. I want to make a bowman for the sake of using Hurricane.
A. (facepalm) Don’t make a bowman for the sake of just one skill; it’s a waste of time and patience.

Q5. Arrow Blow or Double Shot?
A. Double Shot, because it has a chance of each arrow to activate critical shot, making this skill stronger than Arrow Blow.

Q6. What’s jump shooting?
A. It’s a small glitch that you can do with your archer. You have to press your jump button a fraction of a second faster than your attack/skill button. The direction of your arrow is normal. It nullifies FA and it can increase your mobility a little.
