MapleStory Demon Slayer Guide – Skill Builds, Jobs and Level Up


Maple Story is a descent free-to-play, side-scrolling MMO RPG with a huge community. Wizet has been expanding Maplestory in different ways and the latest update features new classes like Demon Slayer, Cannon Shooter and Mercedes.

Old classes also get some additions but being a Maple Story fan, you should try these new classes first. In the following guide however, I am going to dissect “Demon Slayer” class.

Following guide will help you level up fast and complete the quest-chains for Demon Slayer in Maplestory. I will suggest several Skill Builds you can use for Demon Slayer to complete these quests.

Maple Story – Demon Slayer

Demon Slayer used to be a servant of the dark ruler, the Black Mage. He served the ruler many years and then one day, he notices that the Black Mage is like an absolute ruler and he can no longer can serve him.

When he meets Akylum, one of Black Mage’s generals, he finds out that they are planning to destroy his town. He quickly heads back to save his family but he finds nothing but the ashes there. With a heart burning with redemption, he has joined forces with Resistance and aims to free Edelstein and atone from his past at any cost.

Demon Slayer Skills and Abilities

The Demon Slayer can wield one handed weapon (like an axe or any other blunt weapon) and carries a shield exclusively made for the Demon Slayer, the “Demon Aegis”. He also uses a different form of energy (Fury) than the regular MP. The gauge increases on hunting down the monsters.

      The guy who completed the 3rd job advmt had two scepters, one being the doomed scepter, and the other one being the demon bane I think. So are they actually two diff scepters? Thanks!

      The reason I asked about the scepters is because I saw a youtube video where a demon slayer was showing his item inventory after he completed the 3rd job advancement. I was also wondering if you’re not supposed to get a scepter at lvl 30 cause I never got a new scepter after my 2nd job advancement. I’m pretty sure it’s not a glitch. Based on another youtube video on the ds 2nd job advmt, the person didn’t get a scepter at 2nd job. So are you not supposed to get a new scepter until 3rd job? Thanks!

      I have a question about scepters. I accidentally threw away my dooked scepter, and I was wondering if I still get the lvl 70 demon bane reguardless of whether or not I threw away my doomed scepter? Is the demon bane a prize for for completing the 3rd job advancement? Thanks!
