Bishop is a supportive character in MapleStory M game and probably the best character with awesome buffs; you don’t need to use potions to recover HP, Mana as its buff or skills are enough. Bishop’s teleport skill is also useful when fighting against a powerful monster; we can use it to dodge the enemy attack. Passive skills of Bishop such as MP Eater, MP Increase helps you to cast more skills.
Dark Knight: –
Dark Knight is a defensive character in MapleStory M game. The defense and HP stats of this character are very good in comparison to other character classes. With warrior leap skills, you can dodge the enemy attacks; double jump. Along with HP and defense states, Dark Knight is also good at dealing damage. As you level up, Dark Knight will gain the passive skill that increases its damage power by a massive amount. Also, see – Top offline RPG games for Android
Night Lord: –
Night Lord is an assassin type character in MapleStory M game. Since it is of Assassin type, you can guess its speed. The fast speed advantage helps the Night Lord in dodging the enemy attacks, moving fast. But its attack and defense power is low in comparison to Dark Knight. And unlike Bishop, Night Lord lacks the ability to recover the mana or HP, so you will need to use potions.
Bow Master is an archer type character in MapleStory M game who attack enemies from a distance. Unlike other jobs, Bow Master’s defense or HP stats are not too good. But damage power is good. The Passive Skill of bow master will help you in dealing critical damage to the enemies.
Corsair is also a range-class character in MapleStory M game who uses a gun to attack enemies. Stats like speed, damage are pretty good. But it lacks supportive skills and forces you to use potion over and over again.
MapleStory M Best Class: –
Dark Knight Or Bishop are two best classes in MapleStory M game(our recommendation). Dark Knight is good at dealing damage, have better defense or HP stats, and powerful buffs that help you in tough battles. Bishop is overall good in all the stats+supportive skills or buffs help you to defeat elite monsters in boss battles. Both are good in dodging because of active skills; teleport(Bishop), double jump(Dark Knight).
So this is the MapleStory M Best class guide that explains you the pros or cons of classes. Now, let’s head to the skill or equipment guide.
MapleStory M Skill Guide
In MapleStory M game, there are three types of skill; active, buff and passive. You can register or assign active or buff skills to the hotkey or combat control.
