Hey Guys,
I am in look for a main recently, after finding out that i cant fund my NL, because apparently your poop needs to be golden
in order to do that. So I decided on a dualblade because i heard he i easier to fund. I have around 2-3 bil. I was wondering if u guys would
recommend me to open job advance and immediatly have my NL become a lvl.123( Blade Lord. Or if i should make a dualblade in a
different character slot, incase NL get the best revamp in maple history.

TY, your answer is valuable.

P.S i actually want to get like a good answer from like people who have played both or have been in my situation before

EDIT: i have a full 8th anni set if i open job advance, minus the 8th anni weapon, which stops me from gettting the 8th set effect( 17 wep attk, and 25 all stats)

In 1st job, go a sindit route and add into Lucky 7 to make it go faster then job advance into a Bandit since Chief Bandits are amazing in 3rd job and then when you get to 101, job change into Dual Blade for 10mil or a job adv coin. That's what I did just recently.

Dual blade is a very bad idea, It takes 4 times more meso to be on par with a Night Lord damage wise. If you hit cap though Dual Blade is better but if you're saying you have a lack of meso then it's irrelevant to you. Night Lord is by far the easiest thief to fund, Claws are expensive but Dagger/Katara or Dagger/Shield is going to cost more meso. Night lord is the best and easiest explorer thief to boss with as well and also gets extra exp with 4th job skill. Dual Blade, Kaiser, and Phantom are the classes for godly funded 300+bil. So I'd stick with the lower tier of classes until you get a lot of funds or quit.

I would disagree with your statement. Shadower is definitely the easier thief class to fun and is the easiest thief to boss with hands down. A dagger/shield combination is definitely going to cost more meso than just a claw. However, a NL has to not only worry about a claw now, but they also need a good subweapon as well. A good "death sender charm" will run you more money than a good dkhanjar. On top of the claw and the subweapons, NL's also have to worry about buying stars. Another huge expense. In terms of bossing and training in general, Night Lords are extremely squishy. Almost everything in the higher levels two hit you, For someone starting new, a Night Lord is definitely NOT an easy class to boss OR train with. If you want that does the most damage for the money you have currently, play Shadower. If you really don't care about damage and you like the play style of Dual Blade, then by all means stick with it. xD

@lotusflower: In windia a 15% att Charm is 1.5bil, Night lords are not squishy, things have changed. Night lord is better than Shadower in every respect, you may do higher numbers due to your %s on your attacks but you hit slow as hell even with SI/MPE pots. It's pretty obvious you're extremely biased but I've played/mained all of the explorer thieves so I have some backing to what I say. Night lord is by far one of the best bossing classes and great for training.

Honestly I would just stay with NL, although they do take some meso to fund, they actually have really good %damage in terms of showdown and quad throw. Fast leveling with showdown and also if training is a problem get a kaiser and cannoneer free 25% hp. Stars might be kinda expensive, but you can just make balanced furies yourself and save that money.

Stick with what you love.

You're not a maple god or a professional loser.

Don't expect to be 'funded' on any character.

You're required to spend thousands to hit damage cap and be considered decent.

Or spend all of your time merchanting.

Find a class you love, find a group of friends, play with them, boss with them, make money, enjoy yourself.

Maple isn't about who is number one, unless you've got a vast amount of time and money to pour down the drain.

Only for it to be worth nothing 1 year later.

(I know from personal experience)

My shadower was geared god tier when Chaos came out and I was on track to be first. I quit because of personal life, come back, gear is worth crap, no friends played anymore. So I had nothing and I had poured hundreds of hours and dollars into the game.

Do I regret it? No because I learned a valuable lesson I can share with others. Do what you love and find people you enjoy being around.

(Applies to RL too mate.)

@AntiSenpai you sound pretty biased yourself, pal.

@OP play whichever class appeals to you more, for some it is NL and DB because of speed and mobility, for others it is Shadower because of survivability and strong sustained damage with low funding. You shouldn't worry too much about your 2-3 bil funding, because if you don't quit, you'll eventually get more money. Just play what you want to play.

@NoMoreHeros: I'm not biased, I gave info based on what I've played and accomplished. He was just gung ho with Shadower, I gave reasons about the others, his was only putting down NL and pushing Shadower,

He went gung ho because you hadn't mentioned Shadower as a viable class in your original post; OP didn't say he doesn't want to play Shadowers, and with OP's current funding, a Shadower would actually be a very viable option for him. If you say you've played and mained all thief classes at some point, including Shadower, I'd expect to find a few sentences talking about a Shadower in your original statement.

@NoMoreHeros: I partially mentioned them when i mentioned prices, which is what the Op was worried about. I also did not go into detail about it because The Op did not seem interested in the class due to him not mentioning it. Now please, get off my case, my reasoning was based off what the OP wanted.
