Aran AP Distribution and SP Build Guide.

Welcome to the Aran AP Distribution and SP Build Guide.

You will find the AP first followed by
1st stage Aran
2nd stage Aran
and so on

Key: PC= Personal comment
Pros:
  • Due to having an HP draining buff in second job not as many HP potions are needed.
  • Can knockback enemies easier due to a third job buff which reduces the amount of damage required to knockback.
  • A 4th job party skill called Combo Barrier (reduces damage taken by a certain percentage) only requires 200 Combo Counts.
  • Can solo very well if AP & SP are distributed properly.
Cons
  • Due to an Aran’s damage dependence on combos, fighting enemies that have stunning or seducing attacks can require additional time to kill.
    • Examples: Papulatus, Zakum.
  • To keep their combo counters up they have to train with monster at a higher level than themselves.
  • Repetitive. They don’t have lots awesome and flashy skills to use, they mostly use the same skills

Lore:         (Taken from http://strategywiki.org/wiki/MapleStory/Aran_Guide)

Long ago, five heroes came together to fight against the Black Magician to save the Maple World. Despite their powerful skills, they couldn’t defeat the Black Magician. To save the residents, the heroes sent them to Victoria Island before they went to search for the Black Magician for one last time.

But the Black Magician was stronger and froze one of the heroes, Aran, with a curse. During this period, Aran lost his memories and abilities. After hundreds of years, Aran awakes to the sound of a girl’s voice.

Lilin, the only human on Rien and a member of the Rien clan, has waited for the Hero to return. She believes that one day an ancient prophecy will be fulfilled. Lilin is trying to help Aran recover all of his memories and abilities.

With Lilin’s help, Aran is slowly beginning to recover and adjust to civilization. With training, he will be able to get back his formidable power that he once had before he got sealed by the Black Magician.

The heroes are aware that the Black Magician will come back to the Maple World very soon and that this time they will have to defeat the Black Magician for once and for all.

Good places to train! (Also taken from http://strategywiki.org/wiki/MapleStory/Aran_Guide)

Arans are pretty easy to train, but it is recommended to be an experienced MapleStory player before making one; it’s easiest to already have a main character so you can easily fund your Aran. DEXless Arans may not be able to train on higher leveled monsters, depending on how well they are equipped, so use your best judgment.

  • Levels 1-10: After you come back to life in Rien, there will be quite a few Aran job quests. Complete them and you should get to level 10 in no time.
  • Levels 10-14: After you make the first job advancement, similar to the Cygnus Knights training program, you will be given special places to train in Rien. Training Slimes, Training Orange Mushrooms, Training Pigs will give adequate experience.
  • Levels 14-20: If you should go to Victoria Island, a few quests will be waiting for you. Complete them to level up quick. Or, you could participate in HenesysPQ, but with your melee attacks, it would be pretty difficult attacking the flying monsters within the PQ. It’s best to PQ with a higher-leveled friend (or just a stranger, for that matter). Once you get near level 15, Rowen the Fairy in Ellinia will request you to kill Green Mushrooms and Sickly Green Mushrooms. They give great experience and might drop goodies such as a Pan Lid, which can be sold at a high price to other players. If you can kill Horny Mushrooms and Zombie Mushrooms in one or two hits, and you’re able to burn and spam pots, you might want to try Ant Tunnel.
  • Levels 21-25: KerningPQ is available now, but it isn’t recommended to do it at these levels, because you lack DEX (which would cause trouble when fighting Ligators and King Slime within the PQ). Instead, do as many quests as you can until an NPC in Perion requests you to kill Depressed Ghost stumps. You might want to do this quest at the same time as Winston’s Planting Trees quest, so you get monster kills for both quests. (If you’ve not already visited the Ant Tunnel): Once you are ready to go down to Ant Tunnel, head down there and kill Horny Mushrooms and Zombie Mushrooms.
  • Levels 26-29: You are now strong enough to do KerningPQ! It gives you decent amounts of experience, and rewards (such as ores). But don’t forget to do quests, as the NPC in Perion wants you to kill Zombie Mushrooms and Murderous Zombie Mushrooms this time. A great place to train is the ‘Cave Where Mushrooms Grow’ Mini-Dungeon in Ant Tunnel III, where large amounts of Zombie Mushrooms and Horny Mushrooms spawn. At level 29, an Aran job quest requires you to find and kill Francais the Puppeteer. He is found in a small room located in Evil Eye Cave 3.
  • Levels 30-35: At level 30, complete the second job advancement. You will have to kill Scarred Bears to complete it. If you made it, congratulations! Even though you might go to CarnivalPQ, you are not likely to get picked for a party, and you will likely lose and be harassed. Skip it for now, and just go do quests in Mushroom Kingdom. There are scarce amounts of Aran quests in second job, so there’s not much choice.
  • Levels 36~39: Now you can most likely join CPQ without getting harassed. Go to CPQ and be sure to collect Maple Coins inside; that’s all that is needed. Or, if CPQ gets boring, you could go to Ludibrium and do some quests.
  • Levels 40~49: This is when things get a bit more exciting. You should go to Nett’s Pyramid. It’s best to solo, as with each successful ‘Easy Stage’ run-through, with rank S, will give about 70,000 experience (which is amazing at level 40). Not only is the EXP great: if you complete the bonus stage, you can get up to 30 treasure boxes, which can give you potions, elixirs, and sometimes even a Pharoah Belt. Do this until level 49, while selling all those potions you get to other people or to an NPC shop.
  • Level 50: It’s time to Ludi PQ and Carnival PQ! Alhough it gives less EXP, it’s definitely more exciting, and you should get Broken Glasses from LPQ and Spieglmann’s Necklace in CPQ. If you are near leveling up, die a few times, and continue.

Finally, we get to the AP & SP

Regular

Aran are very similar to Warriors. However since they depend on large combos for more powerful attacks, Arans should have at least 2.0–2.2 times more DEX than their level to hit stronger monsters with ease, so if you are at level 25 you should have at least 50–55 DEX. Add everything else to STR.

They do not require INT or LUK. Adding to them is an absolute waste of AP.

Most AP goes into STR and DEX. If you apply your stats correctly, you should have enough accuracy and power to defeat monsters slightly above your level. However, you will deal less damage than a DEX-less Aran, though it will be cheaper to fund a normal Aran compared to a DEX-less one.

Note: Since the Aran quests are required to kill monsters that are similar to your level, or higher, the accuracy gained from DEX helps Aran completeadvancement quests (skill and job) more quickly.

DEX-less Aran

DEX-less Arans are a real challenge, and trying this will require a large amount of money. Being DEX-less means that you’re putting a lot of your AP into STR and you shouldn’t have any dex (it should equal 4).

Since an Aran cannot possibly attack strong monsters without accuracy, instead of adding AP into DEX (which gives 0.8 accuracy per point), you will need a lot of equips that are scrolled to add DEX or accuracy. This requires a lot of luck, since scrolls can fail and sometimes destroy your equipment. The lower the success rate of the scroll, the higher the stat boost from said scroll. It’s a trade off that could end up costing you a lot for nothing at all. On a side note, since none of the Aran’s pole arms require dex, having equipment that adds accuracy is better then having items that have DEX.

Another downfall to a DEX-less Aran is that the combo system is based on hitting the monsters. If you miss when fighting high level monsters because the lack of DEX, your combo will not go up, and the large amount of combo based attacks cannot be used.

If this is done successfully, a DEX-less Aran will deal much more damage compared to a regular build.

Low DEX Aran

Low DEX Arans are for semi-funded people. You cap your DEX from 20-60. Low DEX Arans do more damage than a regular build Aran but MAY do less damage than a DEX-less Aran depending if you’re funded or not. This build is recommended for those who have a stable amount of money and want to do higher damage than normal.

If you want to go with normal, just press

Auto-Assign

SP distribution

Unlike other jobs, most Aran skills require you to press certain keys to attack. This is the main Aran SP build.

Once you’ve advanced to Aran, you will not have all the skills available. You will need to complete quests to obtain the Combo Ability and Polearm Booster skill. The list of levels, below, denotes what skills should be added at what levels. An italicized name represents the time at which the skill becomes maxed.

  • Level 10: Double Swing 1 (+1)
  • Level 11: Double Swing 4 (+3)
  • Level 12: Double Swing 7 (+3)
  • Level 13: Double Swing 10 (+3)
  • Level 14: Combo Ability 3 (+3)
  • Level 15: Combo Ability 6 (+3)
  • Level 16: Combo Ability 9 (+3)
  • Level 17Combo Ability 10 (+1) / Combat Step 2 (+2)
  • Level 18: Combat Step 3 (+1) / Double Swing 12 (+2)
  • Level 19: Double Swing 15 (+3)
  • Level 20: Double Swing 18 (+3)
  • Level 21Double Swing 20 (+2) / Combat Step 4 (+1)
  • Level 22: Combat Step 5 (+1) / Polearm Booster 2 (+2)
  • Level 23: Polearm Booster 5 (+3)
  • Level 24: Polearm Booster 8 (+3)
  • Level 25: Polearm Booster 11 (+3)
  • Level 26: Combat Step 8 (+3)
  • Level 27: Combat Step 11 (+3)
  • Level 28: Combat Step 14 (+3)
  • Level 29Combat Step 15 (+1) / Polearm Booster 13 (+2)
  • Level 30: Polearm Booster 16 (+3)
At level 30 you will have
  • Level 20 Double Swing (max)
  • Level 10 Combo Ability (max)
  • Level 15 Combat Step (max)
  • Level 16 Polearm Booster (16)

Double Swing and Combo Ability have to be at their maximum levels, because some of the second job skills require them to be maxed. Polearm Booster from 15–20 does not increase the effectiveness of the skill; it only increases the duration of the buff and reduces the cost of MP and HP. Therefore, it is more effective to add SP to Combat Step up to level 15 (max). Alternatively, you can max Polearm Booster to increase the duration by an additional 40 seconds while reducing the cost to 10 MP and 10 HP.

Second job

Once you completed your second job advancement, you will not have all the skills available since there are special quests that will give you the necessary skills.

  • Level 69: Final Charge 19 (+3)
  • Level 70: Final Charge 21 (+2) / Polearm Mastery 20 (+1)

  • Level 30: Triple Swing 1 (+1)
  • Level 31: Triple Swing 3 (+2) / Polearm Mastery 1 (+1)
  • Level 32: Polearm Mastery 4 (+3)

  • Level 57Combo Smash 20 (+1) / Final Charge 2 (+2)
  • Level 58: Final Charge 5 (+3)
  • Level 59: Final Charge 8 (+3)
  • Level 60: Final Charge 11 (+3)
  • Level 61: Final Charge 14 (+3)
  • Level 62: Final Charge 17 (+3)
  • Level 63: Final Charge 20 (+3)
  • Level 64: Final Charge 21 (+1) / Body Pressure/Combo Drain 2 (+2)
  • Level 65: Body Pressure/Combo Drain 5 (+3)
  • Level 66: Body Pressure/Combo Drain 8 (+3)
  • Level 67: Body Pressure/Combo Drain 11 (+3)
  • Level 68: Body Pressure/Combo Drain 14 (+3)
  • Level 69: Body Pressure/Combo Drain 17 (+3)
  • Level 70Body Pressure/Combo Drain20 (+3)
By level 70, you should have
  • Level 20 Polearm Mastery (max)
  • Level 20 Triple Swing (max)
  • Level 21 Final Charge
  • Level 20 Combo Drain (max)
  • Level 20 Combo Smash (max)
  • Level 20 Body Pressure (max)

or (not recommended)

  • Level 20 Polearm Mastery (max)
  • Level 20 Triple Swing (max)
  • Level 30 Final Charge (max)
  • Level 11 Combo Drain
  • Level 20 Combo Smash (max)
  • Level 20 Body Pressure (max)

This second situation is really not recommended. Combo Drain fully reduces the use for HP potions flat, therefore, you don’t have to buy as many HP potions. Final Charge is rarely used and doesn’t need to be maxed!

Third job

When you advance to your third job at level 70, there is only one skill missing that can be acquired by completing a quest: Full Swing. Just like any other third job classes, the Arans have a plethora of almost godly attacking and buffing skills at their disposal. Many builds as such can come out of this power buffet. (Go to Erev to obtain Full Swing from Nineheart.)

The Core build
  • Level 70: +1 Full Swing (1)
  • Level 71: +1 Full Swing (2) +2 Smart Knockback (2)
  • Level 72: +3 Smart Knockback (5)
  • Level 73: +3 Smart Knockback (8)
  • Level 74: +3 Smart Knockback (11)
  • Level 75: +3 Smart Knockback (14)
  • Level 76: +3 Smart Knockback (17)
  • Level 77: +3 Smart Knockback (20)[MAX]
  • Level 78: +3 Full Swing (5)
  • Level 79: +3 Full Swing (8)
  • Level 80: +3 Full Swing (11)
  • Level 81: +3 Full Swing (14)
  • Level 82: +3 Full Swing (17)
  • Level 83: +3 Full Swing (20)[MAX]
  • Level 84: +3 Combo Critical (3)
  • Level 85: +3 Combo Critical (6)
  • Level 86: +3 Combo Critical (9)
  • Level 87: +3 Combo Critical (12)
  • Level 88: +3 Combo Critical (15)
  • Level 89: +3 Combo Critical (18)
  • Level 90: +2 Combo Critical (20)[MAX] +1 Free SP (1)(Save this)

The reason for this core build is that with Smart Knockback maxed early, only 10% on the KB damage is necessary to knockback a monster (does not apply to bosses). Next on the list, Full Swing is maxed next to provide great damage. Then Combo critical is maxed to give the godly chance of 60% for all attacks to hit critical damage. Now from here on there are two different builds: the Snow Charge build (for slowing monsters down) and the Final Toss build (for large damage numbers).

The Snow Charge early build
  • Level 91: +4 Snow Charge (4)
  • Level 92: +3 Snow Charge (7)
  • Level 93: +3 Snow Charge (10)
  • Level 94: +3 Snow Charge (13)
  • Level 95: +3 Snow Charge (16)
  • Level 96: +3 Snow Charge (19)
  • Level 97: +1 Snow Charge (20)[MAX] +2 Combo Fenrir (3)
  • Level 98: +3 Combo Fenrir (5)
  • Level 99: +3 Combo Fenrir (8)
  • Level 100: +3 Combo Fenrir (11)
  • Level 101: +3 Combo Fenrir (14)
  • Level 102: +1 Combo Fenrir (15) +2 Final Toss (2)
  • Level 103: +3 Final Toss (5)
  • Level 104: +3 Final Toss (8)
  • Level 105: +3 Final Toss (11)
  • Level 106: +3 Final Toss (14)
  • Level 107: +3 Final Toss (17)
  • Level 108: +3 Final Toss (20)
  • Level 109: +3 Final Toss (23)
  • Level 110: +3 Final Toss (26)
  • Level 111: +3 Final Toss (29)
  • Level 112: +1 Final Toss (30)[MAX] +2 Combo Fenrir (17)
  • Level 113: +3 Combo Fenrir (20)
  • Level 114: +3 Combo Fenrir (23)
  • Level 115: +3 Combo Fenrir (26)
  • Level 116: +3 Combo Fenrir (29)
  • Level 117: +1 Combo Fenrir (30)[MAX] +2 Free SP (2)
  • Level 118: +3 Free SP (5)
  • Level 119: +3 Free SP (8)
  • Level 120: +3 Free SP (11)

The reasoning behind this build is that the primary addition to Snow Charge slows down monsters and prevents them from doing touch damage. Combined with Smart Knockback, you’ll be doing very stable KB damage. With 15 SP into Combo Fenrir, you can do 1,300% damage to monsters as a finisher. Final Toss is maxed next to provide some extra damage on top of Triple Swing. Then Combo Fenrir is maxed to give the full 1,600% damage and you are left with 11 free SP.

The Final Toss build
  • Level 91: +4 Final Toss (4)
  • Level 92: +3 Final Toss (7)
  • Level 93: +3 Final Toss (10)
  • Level 94: +3 Final Toss (13)
  • Level 95: +3 Final Toss (16)
  • Level 96: +3 Final Toss (19)
  • Level 97: +3 Final Toss (22)
  • Level 98: +3 Final Toss (25)
  • Level 99: +3 Final Toss (28)
  • Level 100: +2 Final Toss (30)[MAX] +1 Combo Fenrir (1)
  • Level 101: +3 Combo Fenrir (4)
  • Level 102: +3 Combo Fenrir (7)
  • Level 103: +3 Combo Fenrir (10)
  • Level 104: +3 Combo Fenrir (13)
  • Level 105: +2 Combo Fenrir (15) +1 Snow Charge (1)
  • Level 106: +3 Snow Charge (4)
  • Level 107: +3 Snow Charge (7)
  • Level 108: +3 Snow Charge (10)
  • Level 109: +3 Snow Charge (13)
  • Level 110: +3 Snow Charge (16)
  • Level 111: +3 Snow Charge (19)
  • Level 112: +2 Snow Charge (20)[MAX] +1 Combo Fenrir (17)
  • Level 113: +3 Combo Fenrir (20)
  • Level 114: +3 Combo Fenrir (23)
  • Level 115: +3 Combo Fenrir (26)
  • Level 116: +3 Combo Fenrir (29)
  • Level 117: +1 Combo Fenrir (30)[MAX] +2 Free SP (2)
  • Level 118: +3 Free SP (5)
  • Level 119: +3 Free SP (8)
  • Level 120: +3 Free SP (11)

The reasoning behind this build is the same as above, except it is reversed. No SP is put into Rolling Spin because you don’t often see mobs of 10 monsters compared to mobs of 12 monsters, and secondly, you would not want to be fighting mobs on both sides.

Fourth job

At level 120, the Aran class doesn’t just get more powerful, they even get an Area of Effect attack that can one-hit KO monsters with a chance. Aran fourth job skills are obtained in the usual way, through the completion of quests and the usage of mastery books. This not only means that your skills may not be obtainable, but you might not be able to follow conventional builds. There are a multitude of builds that can be used.

Results
  • Overswing: MAX
  • Final Blow: MAX
  • High Mastery: MAX
  • Combo Tempest: MAX
  • Combo Barrier: MAX
  • Freeze Standing: MAX
  • Maple Warrior: 29/30
  • High Defence: MAX
  • Hero’s Will: MAX

The reasoning for this build, is you start off with two in Overswing, because like Full Swing, it replaces Triple Swing with a whole new animation, and adds more damage. Then you add one to Final Blow, because it kind of acts like a Final Attack that you can use whenever you like. Then you max out Overswing and High Mastery, to make you stable and do more damage, followed by Freeze Standing so you don’t get KB’d every second. Then Combo Barrier, since it makes monsters do 20% less damage on you and your whole party. Then Final Blow because it’s very strong. After that, you start on Maple Warrior and Combo Tempest for damage and High Defence to reduce the damage you take. You end with a few in Hero’s Will, although you’re free to add the points in earlier if you plan to HT and Pink Bean before level 199.

High Mastery is left at 26 because Level 26 adds 90% mastery. The mastery level stays the same until it’s maxed, only for an extra two attack will you change anything by maxing it. And level 29 Maple Warrior adds the same stats as 30, but with a few seconds less time, so it’s one spare point.

The Damage build
  • Level 120: Over Swing (+1)(696% damage total)
  • Level 121–130: High Mastery (+16) (80% mastery / +5 W.ATK) / Over Swing (+14) (800% damage total)
  • Level 131–140: Final Blow (+20) (600% damage) / High Mastery (+10) (90% mastery / +8 W.ATK)

This beginning build is quite simple. First, High Mastery is increased to give more stable damage. Then Over Swing gives you five attacks. More attacks means more damage. Then Final Blow gives even more damage on top of Over Swing. Finally, High Mastery is increased to 26 to give the maximum mastery possible.

The Party build
  • Level 120: Over Swing (+1) (696% damage total)
  • Level 121–130: Combo Barrier (+30) (20% less damage)
  • Level 131–140: Maple Warrior (+10) (5% stat increase) / Over Swing (+14) (800% damage total) / High Mastery (+6) (70% mastery / +2 W.ATK)

Combo Barrier is first increased to decrease damage taken in a party. Then Maple Warrior is increased to give that little stat boost. After that some SP is put into Over Swing for the damage. Then high mastery is increased to give more stable damage.
