Maplestory New Job: The Phantom


It's here. The thief hero has been released into the servers of KMS! Originally a master thief able to steal virtually anything, the Phantom reverted his ways after the death of his loved one (Aria, a previous Empress) and was led onto the path of the hero.


Reminiscent to Gambit from X-men, the Phantom utilises two types of weapons: the cane and cards. The cane is the Phantom's primary weapon, it's mandatory for his skills and in addition, the cane can transform into any type of weapon, which is used when he steals skills from other jobs. Yes, he can steal other skills. I'll go into detail on this fascinating skill later on. Moreover the Phantom throws cards in some of his skills.  Starting from the second job advancement, Phantom has a card stack on the side of his screen.This Card Stack is used in the beginner skill Judgement which can be used when the stack is full. This stack starts off at 20 cards in second job (because of Blanc Carte) and increases to 40 cards in fourth job (because of Noir Carte).

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


Phantom Junior (beginner):

All skills have a maximum level of 1 in this bracket.


Steal Skill Interface
Steal Skill
When used, you will enter Steal Skill Mode, which allows you to click on an Adventurer (except Dual Bladers and Cannon Shooters) and choose which skills you want to steal in the Target Skill window. You cannot steal a passive skill, a summon, or a movement skill. Stolen skills will stay with you until you decide to delete them yourself.

Skill Management
Manage your stolen skills, choosing which to be active and which to delete. You have 4 slots for first and second job, 3 for third job, and 2 for fourth job. However, if you use a skill then switch active skills, the effect of the first skill will disappear.
