Guide authors are encouraged to copy their guides over to the new Wiki section please!

Mechanics are slow mobile class with high damage output and a set of versatile skills. Their most prominent trait is their ability to resist Knock Backs and deal massive amounts of damage within a wide and short range. With skills that allow party members to heal, receive 20% damage boost and teleport anywhere within a map they are some of the most balanced characters for bossing and training. Though their Health Points are low, their Power Armor, Extreme Mech, and Satellite Safety can block and reduce any damage received. Because of their well balanced out skills and high attack power, Mechanics have become one of the most recognized classes of power.

^AP Build
As of the Tempest Update Mechanics will solely use DEX. The need for Secondary Stats have been removed and Equips no longer require STR to be worn.

^Mech Palette Swapper
Mechanics have the ability to change the color of their Mech Protoype starting at Level 15. A quest by the name of Secret Mech Ability will appear on the side of the screen. Checky Will explain that he has created a new gizmo that will make your Mech stronger than ever before, but that he needs 1 Million Mesos from you in order to pay off a part called Mech Disguise Swap Chip.

If you pay for the part you will not only get to choose one of 4 colored Mechs, but you will also receive a new Passive Beginner Skill called Hidden Piece that will add 10% Damage, 10% HP and 10% MP. In addition, several skills will change in accordance to the color you choose.

Please note that the first time you change your Mech's color you get to choose from the first four on the upcoming list. After the 1st time you will randomly be given a color.


If your current graphic card does not support Pixel Shader 2.0 you will not be able to see any mech color. There is no way to fix this other than buying a new graphic card that supports Pixel Shader 2.0

If you want to know if your graphic card can support Pixel Shader 2.0 download GPU-Z from Tech Power Up.GPU-Z is a safe and highly recognized lightweight program that lists intensive information about your CPU and GPU.

Once downloaded look for DirectX Support listing on the Graphic Card tab. If it lists anything other than SM2.0 or higher, your current graphic card does not support Pixel Shader 2.0 and you will need to buy a new one in order to see the new mech colors and certain upcoming skills.

4th Job
From here on out, you should either max Maple Warrior if you can afford the Skill Books or Bots 'n' Tots and Robot Mastery; There's also the option of leaving out Maple Warrior since one should be partying with folks who have it already. It is not recommended to put points into Giant Robot SG-88 or Satellite Safety until your other skills are maxed.
