Introduction to Evans
Welcome to Bright Hub's Maplestory Evan Guide! This guide will tell you everything you need to know to make your time as an Evan the easiest it can be.
First off, what is an Evan? Released relatively recently, an Evan is one of a new class of characters called a Hero. A legendary hero reborn, Evan is a magician with a twist; rather than cast your own spells and fight for yourself, you have a dragon to do it all for you! The dragon, Mir, follows you as you level up and grows from a tiny shell-covered egg to a full-grown dragon.
What makes an Evan unique? Aside from using a dragon to fight, Evans have more than the usual 4 Job advancements available to Adventurers. They have TEN! Not only that, but you have the SP to max every skill! Below I go into detail of each mastery skill set and the points it takes to max them.
Not to mention the dragon has equipment of his own. Four unique pieces of armor add to your stats and defenses!
There are down sides. Evans are partially a money-making method from Nexon. Like other classes, Evans require skillbooks to max certain skills. Unlike other classes, these skill books can not be found from monsters; they can only be bought in the Cash Shop for NX. Among these important skills is Magic Guard. Without Magic Guard you'll be completely unable to survive most end-game bosses.
Evans are slow to attack but have very powerful attacks. Beyond that, they have access to every element in the game! Ice, Fire, Thunder, even Darkness is available at your command. The wide variety of skills gives you a large number of options for killing monsters and hitting weaknesses.
DO ALL QUESTS. This is not optional. For Adventurers, quests are just bonus EXP and items. For Evans, they are ESSENTIAL. Quests will give you levels, yes. They will also give you SP for maxing your skills. On top of that, they will give you your job advancements. You cannot max all of your skills without this SP, and you cannot skip quests and move on to the advancement quests without doing them.
