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

By   /   4 years ago


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.
