Introduction



welcome to my first guide! i decided to base it off of luminous, because i just can't contain my excitement towards this new class. I was anticipating a pirate hero, and looking forward to it too, dont get me wrong, but that wont make me hate this class just because its not a pirate.


Luminous is the last hero, completing the Acronym:
Mercedes
Aran
Phantom
Luminous
Evan
thus spelling maple.

sadly, there is no pirate hero, but here's the story.

StoryLine



Luminous is the last hero, a 2nd mage, who i think personally puts up the best fight against the black mage (you'll agree when you see the cutscene) He is the one who ultimately sealed the black mage, but in doing so, absorbed some of the black mage's power. He was now half light, half evil. He was then cursed by the remaints of the black mage's power, like all the rest of the heros. (who knows? maybe it came from luminous himself, controlled by the black mage?)

He then wakes up to a girl, who nurses him back to health. After you are healthy, you live with her for a while, but one day, you walk outside. Suddenly, the black mage's power overtakes you and you destroy everything in sight and hurt the girl. This is where your choice comes in. If you choose light luminous, you return the favor and rebuild everything and nurse HER back to health. If you pick dark luminous, you leave her and her baby (what? Needs confirmation) to die. Please note: there is a completely different quest line. I'm not sure of what happens, but they are different. It will affect your whole story as far as I'm aware. (credit to darkwierdo27)

NOTE: i dont speak korean, so past that, there is nothing i can tell you.
(LF<someone to translate Korean words of quest line into English for the guide. Will give credits!)

Summary:
Everything Is Maxed

Explanation for funded build:
Add one point into your attacking skill for a little extra boost, followed up by 1 in light transforming for boost in speed and jump, and also greater mobility. Add one point into Ordinary Magic Guard as well, because even at level 1, it absorbs 13% of dmg as mp, which you will find you have a lot more of than hp. Next, Max Light Magic Enhancement for an extra 5% dmg, which, if you are a light luminous,or dark magic enhancement for dark luminous, will be very helpful in the beginning. Then, add one point into Extend Mana, because an extra 6% will be very useful for when you max Ordinary Magic Guard. Next, Max Light Transforming for extra mobility and jump, and also mobility between mobs. Then max Ordinary Magic Guard, which will do the most help at these levels, because the monsters you will be starting to kill will be either golems or Rotting Skeletons, both of which will do more damage than any other mob at this point. After that, Max Twinkle Flash/Dark falling for extra dmg on these mobs, as they also have more hp and defense. After these are at least level 10, you should be able to 1/hit KO these monsters. Afterwards, finish up Maxing Extend Mana for Extra mana which, with fully maxed Ordinary Magic Guard, will be a blessing.

28: +3 Twinkle Flash/Dark Falling (20)
29: +3 Ordinary Magic Guard (7) or Save
30: +3 Ordinary Magic Guard (10:MAX) or Save

Summary: Max everything, except Ordinary Magic Guard (Maybe) look at * for clarification

  • NOTE: All points added into Magic Guard are added loosely, so you can put them in wherever you want, so you can either take less dmg to your mana, as you really dont need magic guard , because you can survive for a long time, and it will save you money on mana pots, but i would add them when they are put in, to gradually make you take less dmg, so you can supply the need for more potions with the money, and such, But i would do that as i put.

Explanation:
Add one point into your attacking skill for a little extra oomph, And add one point into Light Transforming to make to teleport for a little less mana. Then max Extend Mana for more mana, meaning more attacking. less potting, to save money. Put in or save those magic guard points as they are in the build. Then Max Light Transforming to teleport further for less mp, increasing dmg. Then Max your Attacking Skill for more dmg, and EVEN FASTER killing. Then put in or save remaining points to Ordinary Magic Guard. And now, you are 2nd job.


2nd Job



2nd Job: intro
CONGRATS! you have reached 2nd job! its not much of a challenge, but this is where you get both light and dark magic and the light/dark magic gauge.

When dark is active, All dark skills do an extra 50% dmg and use 0 mp.

lvl 59: +3 Invoilability (5)
lvl 60: +3 Invoilability (8)

Summary:
Max Everything except Invoilability (knock back skill), which is mainly used as a skill point dump.


Explanation:
Add one into both Sylphid Lancer and Void Pressure for a little extra dmg. Like 1st job, they also have 1 point auto assigned to them. Then, add one point into Blessing of Darkness for the extra magic attack and dmg resist. Then, add 6 points into booster for 108 seconds of 2x casting speed.(booster has a cap of 10 with the same overall effects). Then max Mastery for extra Mastery and magic attack. (Mastery's cap is now 10 and still has same effects. WOOHOO!) Then max High wisdom for extra INT giving us more Magic attack and max mp. (High wisdom's cap is now also halved [5] and still has same effects WOOOHOOO!) Then, Add 9 points into Blessing of Darkness, for even better dmg resist and Magic Attack. Then, alternate adding 2 points into one attack, and 1 in the other. Alternate until both are maxed at lvl 53. Put the remaining point into booster and proceed to max it. Then, Max Blessing of darkness to increase resistance to dmg and magic attack, thereby finishing up all useful skills. Dump Rest of points into invoilablity.

NOTE: Invoilability seems like a good skill, since it is your knock-back skill, but it is rather useless. You can't use it to gather monsters, as it pushes them outwards to both sides, making it useless for gathering monsters, but decent for knocking away in between spell casts, i suppose, if there isn't a ladder nearby.

lvl 98: +3 Shine Redemption (4)
lvl 99: +3 Shine Redemption (7)
lvl 100: +3 Shine Redemption (10)


Summary: Max Everything but Shine Redemption, which is a skill dump.


Explanation: First, add one point into each Spectral Light, Nox Spear, And Death Scythe, because, this time, 1 point was NOT auto assigned into them, so you must manually put it in, but there are 4 SP Given, so you can still have 1 point left over, which you put into Shine Redemption. Then max out Life tidal for either extra Crit Rate or DMG. Then Max out Party Meditation for Extra magic attack for the whole party! Then add 2 skill point into Light shadow guard for extra defense and damage ignore. Then procede to add 1 point alternately into each attacking skill, until both are maxed. The reason for this is so that one mode isn't more powerful than the other, for more balance damage. Then, max Light Shadow guard, followed by Anti-magic Shell. Finally, dump the rest of your points into Shine redemption, which is ultimately more useful than invoilability due to the hp restore, which it will restore about 250% because u get it to half max, and max heals 500%. due to this, you wont really need hp pots during 3rd or 4th job as far as i am aware

Training Guide



How This Guide Works
I will do a recommendation system of numbers. 5 will be 5 stars, 1 one stars, etc. You know the drill. If there are any things worth noting, i will make a note in parenthesis off to the side.

1st job (10-30)
10-20: Quests 5 (for people who like the story lines)
10-15: Blue Ribbon Pigs 5
15-20: Stone Golems 4
15-20: Angry Starfish 3 1/2
15-30: Rotting Skeletons 4 1/2 (crowded around release of new classes, 74 exp)
20-30: Mixed/ ice/fire Golems 4 (never actually been, but it has received high praise)
20-23: Jellyfish 4 (not as good as rotting skeletons, but still really good exp, clustered, not crowded)
23-30: Cool Jellyfish 5 (not as good as rotting skeletons, but still really good exp, clustered, not crowded. I would honestly recommend more than Skeles)

2nd Job (lvl 30-60)
30-38ish: Mushking Empire 5 (pretty much impossible to stay under lvl 37 if you do all the quests besides Scarr's Final quest, you'd be retarded not to go)
38-45: Dead Scarecrows 4 1/2 (usually crowded, ALWAYS around creation of new classes, and is 220 exp per kill. (same map as rotting skeles)
40-60: Azwan: 5 (solo grinding Normal mode gives about 2 levels until 60, which is surprisingly good)
45-55: Brown Teddies 4 1/2 (2 exp better than scarecrows, MUCH less crowded, and better spawn. Do lots of dmg, bring lots o pots(very good for void pressure))
50-60: PQs 5 (Its a change in pace, and gives good exp, depending on which pq. also fun, and you meet people)
55-60: Robos 3 1/2 (slightly better exp than teddies, and a change in maps)

3rd Job:
60-80 (90 if you're very committed): Twisted Jesters 3 1/2 (You may argue they deserve a better grade, with their 1325 exp (ah, remember back when it was 2325?), but it is sooooo crowded, and hackers are very common, so its only worth it until lvl 80ish.
60-100: Azwan 5 (Still very good, and void pressure is boss-mode here, even in 3rd job. Gives lots of exp, and you should be able to hard grind mobs at lvl 65ish, with a party of 6. (WARNING: Hard mode drains pots like crazy, so i recommend you have maxed magic guard and a jr boogie to reach full potential, and save most money.))
60-100: PQs 4 1/2 ( Pq's start to get boring at 60, but at 70 you get lord pirate and romeo and juliet. For maximum exp, do each 10 times a day (should get you from 70 to 90) and GRIND! Grind as long as you think u can at lord pirate and R&J. (In lord pirate, grind at the key room and the Enraged Captain stage. R&J, Grind at the roid stage.))
60-70: MP1 and MP2 2 (Bad exp, but better than many other places, and only for those who like to train those few lvls or lower dmg dealing monsters)
60-70: Sand Rats and Scorpions 2 1/2 ( Never been, but its supposedly good and uncrowded, but there are better options.)
70-80: Mutae, Iron Mutae, Mithril Mutae, and Reinforced Mutae 2 1/2 (Very similar to Sand Rats and Scorpions.)
75-85: Roids and Neo Huroids 3 1/2 ( Much like the above monsters, All of which are in magatia somewhere, but still decent)
70 (or 80)-90: MP3 4 1/2 (Very good exp, Very good spawn, good map, clustered mobs for easy targeting (spectral light), but can be crowded usually)
90-100: Aliens Corridor 5 or 6: 5 (A whopping 3000 exp per kill, good spawn, clustered, but VERY crowded (empty channels are more rare than a orange snail) and hackers are plentiful, but its honestly your best option dispite that. Lots of prequests though.)
90-100: Red Nose Pirates 4 (Ive never been personally, but it receives high praise. the red nose pirates include Mr. Alli, Kru, and Captain. Not crowded, and the weakest (Mr. alli) give over 1300, not NEARLY as crowded as aliens, same spawn and clutteredness. Takes longer, but may actually save time in the long run)

4th job
100-200: PQS 5 (More fun than grinding, and you meet more people, and all that jazz)
100-110: Aliens 5 (Look above)
100-110: Red Nose Pirates 4 (look above)
100-110: Spirit Vikings 3 1/2 (Ive Never been, but it recieves high praise. Light Reflection is great on these monsters, and Shine redemption will be your best friend, as they do a ton of damage (But magic guard will help). They are semi easy to kill, and give 1912 per kill, and have good spawn, and aren't very crowded.)
110-120: Gigantic Spirit Viking 3 1/2 (Pretty much the same as regular spirit vikings, with about 100 exp more)
110-165: LHC / LKC (Lion Heart Castle/Lion King's Castle) 5 (The monsters are REAAAAAAALLY strong, and have amazing exp. However, the weakest of them has 7.4million hp, and will take forever to kill, but it is still your best bet. Parties of 6 are the best, and no one will leech you (IN UR FACE LEECHERS) And you NEED a bishop for maximum potential. You should get buffers in your party,to survive and kill easier. I recommend the buffs Adv. Bless, Bless, Rage, Maple Warrior, Hyper Body, Iron Will, Holy Symbol (BEST), and other such buffs. Its only downside is to get to best monsters (Bearwolves) there are prequests, and take forever to finish. But, It is your best bet to level.
165-200: Stronghold 5 (I have NEVER even come close to getting here, but its all anyone ever talks about for training after 165. There are prequests (i believe) and it is very hard to kill the monsters, but parties are good, and all the same stuff as LHC pretty much, though i have no idea about the exp. but, i think its worth it)

Edit:
working on Skill Build, bear with me, cause these things take time, this is my first guide, and it is closest thing to saving your work. more is coming, so please be patient.

Edit 2: updated to be Light and Dark luminous friendly.

Edit 3: 3rd job done, working on 4th, in progress.

Edit 4: RAAAAAAAGE spent 2 hours on training guide, then basil wouldn't let me post cause i used too many asterisks. RAAAAAAAAAAGE! i give up for now.....

TO BE MADE:

Different builds for different styles of play
Different builds for unfunded

What are u talking about There's no robots and stuff... This isn't Jett The storyline is basically just you choose light and you save her and she tells you to go to ellenia and help people around town. Then you just has job advancements with your old dead friend.
