[MapleStorySEA] NO LONGER USED (The Character Card System has been replaced by The Maple Union System) - BOOSTING YOUR MAIN'S DAMAGE RANGE PART 1 OF 2: Character Card combination (right side of character selection screen)


Update:
***(Note: Character Cards are no longer used, please kindly refer to the Maple Union note https://maplestoryseatips.blogspot.sg/2017/05/maplestorysea-my-maple-union-character.html, the Maple Union System is now used instead of the Character Card System)***

***
IMPORTANT:
You should be able to achieve a total of +27% critical rate for your main character, by doing the following:
-
1) Train Phantom to lv120, and link its link skill to your main character (linking of link skills can be done at lv70, and the character giving the link skill will not lose its link skill).
-
2) Train Crossbow Master and Night Lord to lv140 (Rank S in Maple Union) each, and equipping them in Maple Union % critical rate tiles.
-
3) Please make sure *not* to overoccupy Maple Union % critical rate tiles if your main character has exceeded 100% critical rate, taking note that the stat window of your main character will only show critical rate as 100%.

Thank you.
Damage refers to DAMAGE RANGE IN THE STAT WINDOW. = ***IMPORTANT: http://www.southperry.net/showthread.php?t=57159 Credits to the creator of the information. I also tested this with and without my Luminous card, for my Luminous character. The total buffed INT (even after using Luminous's own buffs), is only increased by 40 int. As mentioned in the forum thread, and also logically, this means that character cards with individual boost effects, boosting stats(Kaiser for STR, Angelic Buster for DEX, Xenon for STR, DEX and LUK, and Luminous for INT), only add to the final number of the different stats in the stat window, and this increase is NOT affected by % stats or % of that stat/those stats, of equipment, skills or link skills.*** = Please read the following ADVICE, before continuing on reading carefully about character cards!!! @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ Part 2 of 2 of this note: https://www.facebook.com/notes/soh-jiong-hao/maplesealv30lv150-revamped-koc-empress-blessingknight-of-cygnus-blessing-of-the-/430780557017338 MY ADVICE as a non-@cash player:*** It is best to train a main that will stick with (main: you usually only play this character and probably will train it to at least lv200, the other characters are just mainly used to support this character in terms of damage and non-damage-boosting link skills) = IMPORTANT NOTE: level 3 link skills are unlocked at lv210, which is FAR TOO DIFFICULT TO REACH, so I won't be elaborating on them.

This is updated to the CURRENT mapleSEA's patch. 'X char level' means 'times(Multiplied) by the logged-in (the character being used) character's level). Boss dmg% (kanna (magician) character card) is more than boss att % (demon avenger (warrior) character card) because your weapon/magic attack is just a part of your damage. --- I may not have trained the stated jobs in the 9-card combinations as the job may not/may just have/ is going to be released. -- Thus, The stated combinations at the bottom section does not mean that I have attained the different character card rank levels for the characters chosen.

Own job type: warrior/magician/pirate/thief/bowman. They cannot unlock the 3 Rank S together (with any job type), effect of 700 hp/mp, 3wa/ma, 3% boss damage. They can only give the rank A type of the 3 rank A together (with any job type) effect: 500 hp mp, 1wa/ma) FROM the 'CYGNUS RETURNS' patches onwards, KNIGHTS OF CYGNUS will be revamped to be max level 200, and have rank S character cards at lv100, rank SS character cards at lv200!!!! With the exact same character card effect, at ranks S and SS, the effects will be boosted accordingly. -------- The 3 own job type cards together effect's rank works like that: 3 cards of the same rank give that own job type rank effect (e.g. 3 rank S magicians= Magical storm (S) = 8% max MP added to range), so does 2 cards of the same rank and 1 card of a rank below that rank. (e.g. 2 rank S and 1 rank A magicians= Magicial storm (S)) --- My individual character cards that I am using. My main is a bishop (a magician).

This is a higher damage range boost as compared to using Striker (rank S boost being 4 weapon & magic damage range X character level, this boost is the same as viper's rank S card boost)for the third card in this group of 3 cards. ------------------- Thus, the 3-magician-effect of % max MP to range will add more to the range of magicians compared to other jobs. ------------------- And, the 3-warrior effect of % max HP to range will add more to the range of non-magicians compared to magicians. ----------------------------- Finally, 3 explorer cards give the effect of + stats. ------ And if you calculate it, 'max MP' or 'max HP' is the [The Maximum HP or MP, minus willpower HP boost, minus Empathy MP boost, minus EQ/WEP boost, minus 2nd/3rd/4th job advancement HP & MP boosts]. Which should explain why 8% max MP did not add at least 320 to my phantom's range, whose MP without willpower, empathy and eq/wep boosts should be at least 4k, but instead, it was boosted by only 159:x ============== ================ My own INDIVIDUAL character card boosts Photo Album: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.446136202148440.1073741825.100002561932116&type=3&uploaded=18 ======================== My own character card combinations:
