Maplestory New Job: The Demon Slayer

The latest class addition to Maplestory is the Demon Slayer. Originally a member of the Black Mage's forces, the Demon Slayer has turned a new leaf and joined the Resistance. The Demon Slayer utilises a new system called "demon force" which replaces the conventional mana system. Unlike mana, DF is attained by killing more monsters which release orbs and replenish your DF.

With the release of the Demon Slayer, Maplestory has obtained two new types of equips: force shields and sceptres. Sceptres are classified as 1h blunt weapons but what distinguishes them from other BWs is their favourable fast (5) speed. Demon Slayers will be able to utilise both 1h axes and 1h BWs. Force shields are the only way to increase your DF limit. They are all untradeable and cannot be potentialed nor scrolled.

Here are the stats of the sceptres which all are given when you get to the required level. They require no DEX and have 7 slots:

Doomed Sceptre: +29 Attack (level 10)

Dignity Sceptre:  +49 Attack (level 30)

Assurity Sceptre: +69 Attack (level 50)

Demon Bane: +83 Attack (level 70)

Evil Bane: +108 Attack (level 120)
Here are the stats of the force shields (unlevelled):

Force shield of patience: maxDF +20, DEF +10, MDEF +5 (level 10)

Force shield of will: maxHP +150, maxDF +50, DEF +30, MDEF +15 (level 30)

Force shield of power: STR +7, DEX +7, maxHP +350, maxDF +80, DEF +60, MDEF +30 (level 70)

Ultimate force shield: STR +12, DEX +12, maxHP +600, maxDF +110, DEF +85, MDEF +45 (level 120)

All the skills effects, damage, cost etc. will be listed in bold and will be the max level effect.

    What are those (3) meters on the side?

  2. Sorry I don't understand?

  3. So you dont need to buy the scepters but they are just given to you?

  4. how do you become a demon slayer is it a seperate job you choose on the screen before you make a character?

  5. As it is a new job, it's separate on the screen to promote it. However I suspect that they'll soon be put under resistance when they become old. The scepters I think have to be acquired in game. On the other hand, the force shields are given at the specified level.

  6. do u go on resistance i want to be a demon slayer sooooooooooo badly

  7. wat do u chosse? is it resistace or explorer

  8. i think its resistance but where do u go when u choose a job i want the demon slayer job

  9. its not out yet u idiots lololol

  10. would like to ask there are 2 skills named devil wings. can i ask where to get it?

  11. The devil wings are the equivalent of the Demon Slayer's Mount. Therefore I think those 2 skills are given via a quest at specific levels. Probably level 50 and 100?

  12. Soon with all the classes, the Create a New Character screen will be so cluttered. They will probably have to have a picture for Explorers, Cygnus Knights, Adventurers, Heros, and Resistance, and then when you click on them there will be a new set of pictures that relate to each separate job in that subset (this would only apply to the Adventurers and Heros though).

    Awesome blog by the way. Props to you :P

  13. GUYS GUYS it will come in its own icon along with other 2 legends dec 8/9= Cannoneer dec 19=Mercedes jan 11=Demon Slayer take note You start at lvl 10 and you do you the sceptres as you do you job adv

  14. the legend character all have their own spot cuz they r special everything else got down sized everything else is sooo little u cant see them

    The weapons you get as a demon slayer for example: (Evil bane).
