Training Bowman In Maplestory

Posted on June 6, 2013

Like every class, beginning Archers start out on Maple Island, in front of the Training Camp. There are a number of quests to do that serve to orient first time players to the game. Be warned, however, that once the Training Camp is left, it cannot be returned to. After leaving the starting area, players are given free roam on the island.

In addition, it is advisable not to use potions on Maple Island, as there is no penalty for dying. If health is needed, try finding a safe place to sit down and wait a few seconds to recover. Stay on Maple Island until level 10, as it provides a comfortable and relatively secure training environment. If that’s not up to personal preference, Maple Island can be left at any time by Shanks in Southperry , with 150 mesos .


The first step to being an Archer is already complete! Now that the prospective archer is on Victoria Island, or Vic for short, it’s time to head to the Job Instructor. For Archers, that’s Athena Pierce, in Henesys . The best way to get to Henesys is via the taxi. In Lith Harbor , the taxi is run by a man in a booth, near the ship.

In order to promote to first job, the character in question must be at least level 10. It is recommended, however, that the advancement be made while still on level 10, as crucial skill points will be lost otherwise. If the future archer left before level 10, get there immediately. After reaching level 10, find Athena Pierce in the town of Henesys . She lives in a tree on the far right of Mushroom Park .

After advancing to archer, the max HP and MP will nearly double. Also, it’s finally time to equip a bow! The potion shop of any town sells arrows at 1 meso each, or they can be found from monsters for free. Vicious, the Henesys item maker can also make them for free with Processed Wood and Stiff Feathers. Unfortunately, a level 10 archer doesn’t have enough dex to do decent damage with a bow. It’s advisable for starters to continue using melee weapons until at least level 15. These can be found from monsters or bought from the Weapon stores in each town. The best melee weapons are from Perion, at the top of the world map. Buy a 2-handed Axe or a wooden sword for 3k meso. Both STR and dex raise an archer’s damage, so don’t be afraid to pump it a little, though it’s not advisable to raise it above 30. Dex is better for bows and STR is better for melee weapons. STR affects the minimum damage range of a bow, but only very slightly, and at low levels almost unnoticeably. To use bows, a certain amount of strength is required.
