MapleStory Live: Dual Blade Character Build Guide

 

The Dual Blade Character Build Guide is a basic build that will assist you through the MapleStory Live game up to level 60-70. This guide is meant for casual players that will probably never train until level 90 (which is a long way) that will unlock skills in the fifth section of their skill page.

Keep in mind that this guide is for a casual player looking to get to about stages of Orbis or El Nath. Once you get to Orbis you are asked to get to level90 to be able to advance into the next Blade Lord Job Advancement from Blade Specialist. However, this is a very long process and most players do not choose to continue to grind in the game as a result this guide is made specifically for those players that will most likely not continue towards long levels.

MapleStory Live - Dual Blade Guide

Stats – Ability Points

By default your ability points are used automatically due to your settings in the middle column. You can adjust them so they will auto distribute from different styles like DEF – ATTACK- BALANCED – CUSTOM. What you want  to do to be able to use ability points on your own is tap the + sign and use Custom. Each time you level up your ability points will not be used up automatically.

Recommended distribution

For every level you will get about 3 Ability Points. You want to put them according to your play style of being a powerhouse or survival  or being balanced. The recommended is being balanced.

POWERHOUSE: Put all your points into LUK

SURVIVAL: Put all points into STR

Balanced: Place 2 points in Luk and 1 point in Str. If you want more life then place 2 points in Str and 1 point in Luk. This will ensure you get increase on ATT and on HP

Skill Points Distribution

This character build focuses on using Double Stab and Triple Stab at lower levels.

  • Nimble Body – MAX (This provides you more accuracy and ensures you won’t miss your target)
  • Double Stab – 10 (Used to enable Triple Stab)
  • Save all other points until SKILL II
  • Triple Stab – 1 Point (you want to continue to use Double Stab, so 1 point for now)
  • Katara Mastery – 5 (If you are missing then definitely add points in this)
  • Katara Booster – 1 (Buff increase attack speed for normal attacls.)
  • Triple Stab – 9 Point (MAX)
After you have maxed Triple Stab you can place skill puts into either Maxing Double Stab or Katara Mastery or Kara Booster.  There is almost no worthy still on SKILL IV except for Tornado Spin and this guide is not for people looking to unlock SKILL V (Level 90).
Other Notable Skills
  • If you have skill points left over you should choose to other max Fatal Blow or Tornado Spin for an extra skill

Equipment

You should always be upgrading your equipment for the best results.

How to gain experience

Quests on each town is your best way to gain experience so you should always be completing whatever quests are available. Some give over hundreds of thousands of experience which is much better than simply killing enemies.

There is no real strategy to gaining experience except for you to kill every enemy and be sure not to skip those quests or you will fall behind in leveling.

  2. How to get pass pianus pls reply fas

    • Not sure if it has a diference but somehow its more effective hitting hia fore head instead of the face XD

  3. How do I beat hiver? >< PLS HELP! D: D: D:

    • you can beat hiver by using the slash storm skil and dont forget to stack up your mana

    • There is a portal in Perion (Gusty Peak). Go through that portal and it will lead you to Lonely Sea which is in Aqua Road. Swim through where there are truckloads of bloodbooms and there will be a portal at the top of right hand side. Go through that portal. Now you are at Ludibrium.

  4. Hello. I am a lv. 83 Dual Blade and I was wandering at which level I should do the main quest "Defeat Pianus and return to Calypso." Currently I'm a lv. 83 and I am not really sure if this level is enough to defeat the massive fish A.K.A. Pianus. Anyone with knowledge please reply back.

    • I think that level is good enough, with skills. MY PERSONAL OPINION. You don’t need to follow my footsteps.

    • Dude do you play the free version? I was like, i dont know, lvl 50~60 and defeated him at first try and didnt have any dificulties

    • At level 83, you shouldn't have much of a problem beating Pianus, but since you are:
      *Use slash storm to get rid of the squids he summons. Slash storm can hit multiple enemies so it should take care of said squids rather quickly
      *Spam Fatal Blow on him as much as possible, due to it causing high amounts of damage and staggering him, giving you a chance to deal some extra damage
      *As with all bosses, have plenty of healing and mana pots with you, 300 each should suffice.
      * Bring as many "All-Cure" Pots as you can. His attacks can cause some nasty de-buffs. Speaking of buffs, bring tons of them. Power house and Stonewall's are recommended.
      *Watch out for the spikes around the map
      IF you're feeling lucky, go ahead and tank him. I don't recommend it though. I do recommend running from his attacks though. Good luck.

    • If I used a tornado spin skill would that do a lot of damage to pianus?

    • Yes actually (Tornado spin causes high amounts of damage irregardless and can hit multiple enemies so having it is a plus)

    • What towns will be unlocked when i accomplish the main quest "Pianus?"

    • Pianus is a easy boss to beat. I found out that you can keep slashing his back neck after he spawns the squids. The small platform behind pianus is the place to go after he spawns the squids. Just use dark sight until pianus spawns the squids.
