~~~

Why I'm writing this guide.
I'm writing this guide becuase I remember how hard it was for me, my first warrior. I chose the class 'Spearman' because I had heard rumors of the third job being released someday, little did I know it would be another year before that became reality, and even then, I wasn't ready.
I could never stick to one character, my true failing. Assassin, Cleric, Bandit, Hunt, Crossbowman, Fighter, I/L Wizard, Page... I played them all..
One day, somewhere around level 55 on my third Assassin, I realized that my first character to get to 30 was the one I should have been training all those months.
I was playing jMS at this point, and didn't want to leave, so I restarted.

With that new character, ExiledHero of Kaede, this guide was born.

It is a great pleasure for me to help those that follow the path that I help create. Feel free to ask questions, I will try to answer them to the best of my ability.

I think you'd like to know why you want to choose this class, so here are the pros and cons.

Pros and Cons(0A)


Pros of Spearmen as a Warrior class:
- Spearmen can hit higher above them than the other Warrior classes, and this can be very helpful at times, to avoid beng hurt...
- Your arsenal consists of many cool and stylish weapons, though at first you may think of the Nine Dragons as ugly, you'll learn to like it.
- You can use Snowboards(Polearms) and Skiis(Spears) as weapons, which fits well in El Nath.

Cons of Spearmen as a Warrior class:
- Slashes with spears do much less damage than stabs.
- Stabs with polearms do much less damage than slashes.
- About 12% slower attacking speed than sword users.

Pros of Hybrid over 'pure' Spearman builds:
- Can use both training skills in 3rd job depending on the circumstances.
- Better use of your skill points.
- Much faster training than 'pure' spear.
- Hybrid Dragon Knights are undeniably the fastest training class in Maple Story, though due to Assassins outnumbering them three or four to one, the #1 player in jMS is a Hermit.

Cons of Hybrid over 'pure' Spearman:
- No +20 DEF skill(Whoo, big loss...)
- Past level 90, you need to have both weapons, one spear, one polearm.

I think that's it for pros and cons...

~~~
Starting Out(1A)
(Skip this if you're experienced)
~~~

The dye roll:
This is fairly simple, keep rolling the dice until you get a roll of 4 or 5 INT, 4 or 5 LUK and whatever in STR and DEX. No worries, the total is always 25.

If this is your first character, I should be able to teach you the best way to set up your keys, to get the best use out of them.

Assuming you're using a standard english keyboard, of course.

Click the button in the bottom right corner, it has keys on it.

Click the button labeled 'Default'.

You'll want to put the Pick Up key to Shift, as it's the key you'll be using most often.

Leave everything else as it is, for now.

Upon receiving your first health potions, put these on Delete, an inch away from the arrow keys.

Getting ahead of myself...

The first NPC you meet has a lightbulb above her head - this means she has a quest for you!

Follow her instructions and talk to the next NPC -Sera- and get a mirror, bring this back to the first NPC.

You just finished your first quest.

Now, go all the way to the right, and press up on the shining blue portal, you are now on a different map.

This NPC teaches you about food, double click on the 'Roger's Apple' item you receive, or, drop the apple on the ground and wait until your health recovers. When you have full health, talk to him, you will receive your first health potions - put these on Delete, and press Shift to pick up the apple.

The next quests are all fairly straightforward, if you need help, I'm sure somebody has written a guide for beginners...

Make sure you finish all of the quests before leaving Maple Island.

Nearly forgot - put points into DEX until it's 10, everything else into STR.

~~~
Welcome to Lith Harbour(1B):
At this point, you should be level 8 or so... Don't buy anything yet, you'll need your money.
~~~

Go all the way right and through the portal.

You'll see a large ammount of blue snails, keep killing them until you hit level 10...

Return to Lith Harbour.

~~~
First job - Swordsman
Off to Perion(2A):
~~~

By this time your stats should be something like this:
STR: 50
DEX: 10
INT: 5
LUK: 5

You have two choices at this point, walk to Perion or get a ride?

Walking could kill you, but the ride costs 80 mesos...

Anyways, once you get to Perion, go to the top right building, which is where the Warrior Master lives, Dances with Balrog.

Talk to Dances with Balrog, if you did as I said, he will offer to let you become a Warrior.

You will receive an upgrade to your inventory and one(1) skill point(Referred as SP from now on).

Put this SP into HP recovery.

Go find the weapon and armor shop, one floor down, purchase a wooden sword. Save the rest of your money.

I will now provide a chart to follow, as even I have limited time:

Training first job:
10 - 15:
Should have:
Wooden Sword
Any armor
Henseys Hunting Ground One - Kill bottom row
15 - 20
Should have:
Any level 15 weapon, preferrably a sword
Level 15 armor excluding helmet
Henseys Hunting Ground One - Kill second and third row row OR Southern Forest Dungeon One
20 - 30
Should have:
Any weapon for your current level, preferably a sword
Any armor level 20+
Pig Beach OR Party Quest(Lvl 21+) OR Damp Forest

10 Increasing HP Recovery
Max Increasing Max HP
Max Slash Blast
Max Power Strike
1 Endure
STR: 100
DEX: 60
INT: 5
LUK: 5

Purchase your level 30 armor and weapon, from players, as the shop doesn't sell the Mithril Polearm.

Get ready for your second job advancement - you must prove yourself.

Fairly simple, hunt down the instructor, listen to his instructions, get 30 dark marbles without dying. Easy.

Head back to town, go to Dances with Balrog and choose the Spearman job advancement.

You should be feeling proud of yourself, and you should have some upgrade scrolls - keep saving these.

~~~
Second Job - Spearman
Get ready to shine(3A):
If you're reading this, you either hit level 30, or you're smart enough to read ahead, good job either way.
~~~

After your job advancement, you'll have gotten another free SP, put this in Polearm Mastery.

It's best to stay around Victoria island until level 35, but go ahead and explore.

Remember, if you don't understand something, don't be afriad to ask.

Training your second job
30 - 35:
You should be using a mithril polearm and whatever level 30 armor you chose, and keep the blue bamboo hat from earlier on.
Jr Kitties(Orbis) OR Wild Boars(Victoria) OR Ant Tunnel I(Victoria)
35 - 40:
Buy a Dark Crusader overall, axe polearm, get a dark briggon from John's second quest and buy steel triggers, keep your blue bamboo hat.
Ludi PQ(Ludibrium) OR Jr Kitties(Orbis) OR Wild Boars(Victoria)
40 - 45:
At level 40 you have two choices - keep your old armor and scroll it for DEX(Costs 340k) or buy a new set of armor... I suggest scrolling. But a pre-scrolled Crescent Polearm.
Ludi PQ(Ludibrium) OR Jr Kitties(Orbis) OR Copper Drakes + Fire Boars(Victoria)
45 - 50:
Same armor as before - nothing new at 45...
Ludi PQ(Ludibrium) OR Block Gollems(Ludibrium) OR Copper Drakes + Fire Boars(Victoria)
50 - 60:
Buy the Silver Crusader helm, Umber Shouldermail set, Gold Hildon boots, and sell everything else you have to buy a good Nine Dragons and an attack glove.
Block Gollems(Ludibrium) OR Jr Yetis(El Nath)
60 - 70:
Buy the stylish Dark Oriental set, blood camel boots, sell your current atack glove and buy an attack Dark Clench, and get a good Blood Snowboard or Skylar.
Only training for you is Coolie Zombies in El Nath.

~~~

This is what you've been waiting for.

You are about to receive the title of Dragon Knight.

I don't want to spoil this for you, so I won't say what to do.

~~~
Third Job - Dragon Knight
Hardship and Glory(4A):
You finally became a Dragon Knight, you probably have a good glove, 8 attack or so, a good Gold Dragon, around 97 ATT(5 STR), and should have a huge pile of cash. Keep saving, level 80 will cost you big time.
~~~

Another 9 boring levels of Coolies and you get to go free... At level 79 you have nearly your full power.

At level 79, find a Priest, and head over to Ludibrium. From 79 to around 90, you'll be fighting Master Death Teddies(Master Destiny)

And what should you buy at level 80?
Reccomended equipment:

Dark Emporer(Glove, 8 attack at least)
Dark Battle Lord(Overall, 17 DEX, 10 ACC at least)
Dark Dragon Babuta(Stats don't matter, at least 3 STR though)
Dark Rivers(Boots, at least 6 accuracy, more or less is fine)
Dark Seraph(Cape, preferably 10 STR)
Omega Spear(Spear, preferably 105 ATT, 5 STR or more)

With this equipment, you won't need to buy anything but potions for a looong time. Plus it's extremely stylish.

From 90+, if you maxed Dragon Blood before Dragon Fury, you'll be at Grim Phantom Watches, if you maxed Dragon Fury first, you get to go to Aqua Dungeon's Gobies.

Gobies are great EXP, break open the rock, 6 gobies come out, a few hits kills are 6, use Dragon Fury for this.

Grim Phantom Watches require a Priest again.. *Sigh*

Around level 130, you can start killing the 'true' bosses, such as Papulatus, Doom Flounder and Zakum.

The highest your base DEX should ever be is 100 - preferably lower.

Everything else into STR.

Here's your skills:

Lvl 70 1 Dragon Buster: Spear(1)

It looks so easy to become a DK when all is said and done, written down, just words...

------------------------------------------------------------------
Tips for success
------------------------------------------------------------------

Scrolls:
You might have noticed all those upgrade scrolls...

Well, those are the main source of income for you.

Whenever you find one, pricecheck it, then sell it. Get several opinions before selling, most scrolls are 200k+


Quests:
Quests are a major source of scrolls, experience, money and items, many of them are fun. Finish all the quests you can!

Party Quests:
Like regular quests, but you can redo them, and they MUST be done with a group, there are several party quests currently, Kerning, Ludibrium and Zakum.
They often gives scrolls, sometimes worth millions!


Guild Quests:
Like party quests, but much harder, and must be done by people all in one guild.
Only one currently.

About Dragon Blood... it adds weapon attack. And the extra thousand damage or so isn't laughable.

Oh, and I advocate 20 mastery for each weapon, and blow off 2 HP recovery. Since 2 accuracy = ~3dx, which is 3 st... .shrug. At level 60, 6 HP/10 seconds REALLY doesn't matter, you know.

Also... use the extra end-points right after finishing polearm skills and before spear skills, since it's not like you're going to need spear skills until level 70, and the extra points earlier on... yeah.

Otherwise, good guide.

I did put max in each mastery..

And I put max spear mastery at 5x because most people can't afford a 50/60 polearm, so may need to use a spear.

.shrug. I like having the 20 mastery early on, when you might not be able to afford +dx or +acc scrolling.

Is Serpent Tongue actually less expensive than Nine Dragons? They're both around 4-5m on Broa, last I checked. Though I suppose, if you like to weaponswitch...

Perhaps minor, but...

I've always had an affection for the Leatty from levels 33-40. Whites from 33-35, and darks from 35-40.

Firstly, they give warrior armors. Secondly, v. slow, so you'll be okay without booster. Which isn't accessible at those levels. And... thirdly, v. empty there.

Plus, they look like dust bunnies [totoro] which makes them instantly cool.

Ah, but kitties are fast, and you can mob as they are on the bottom.

Hmm.. Should I change the training places to include Ludi monsters?

The giude seemsok. But i dont think anyone would be a hybrid spearman. There's no benefits apart from saving money on the weapons.

-_-

You use the more effective weapon, the polearm, which does it's stronger hit 2/3 times, and then use spears in 3rd job, using a skill that always does it's strong hit, stabbing.
And polearms are useful in 3rd job too, mass OHKO'ing jr yetis for fast EXP.

Wth is your DEX/accuracy?

I can hit them fine on 45 spearman, 100%...

And copper are near Perion.

If DEX is your problem, this isn't a DEX-less guide...

Wow, nice guide Hopeless, I will be following your guide on my hybrid spearman, you should put it on the MTWiki as well since forum guides are no longer stickied.

Thanks Hpeless! I`ll make a hybrid spearman
Note: I can hit easily Copper Drakes at lvl 40 BUT is a waste of potions (=money).
Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream
I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed

Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, whose sounds caress my ear
But not a word I heard could I relate, the story was quite clear
Oh, oh.
