MapleStory Archer Starter Guide
Becoming an archer in MapleStory.
In order to get a good starting archer, you need to roll 4 intelligence and 4 luck. Strength and Dexterity can be anything, if you are lazy, put never let intelligence be any higher then 4, it is a waste to fighters.
Many Questions asked by noobs (not that you are one):
Q. Why is strength and dexterity so important while intelligence and luck isn't?
A 3 simple things:
Dexterity: Power of attacks and higher level equipment
Strength: Different weapons
Luck: although it gives you a higher chance for a drop, you will kill so much that you would have a higher chance.
Q What does AP stand for?
A AP stands for "ability point". Ability points are points that you put on certain stats, which include STR, DEX, INT, LUK, HP, and MP. You get 5 ability points every time you level up
Q What is SP?
A SP stands for "skill points". Skill points are points that you put on certain skills to activate or upgrade them. As a thief, you receive your first skill point at level 10 when you become a warrior and every level after 10 you receive 3 skill points.
