Maplestory Hoyoung – Complete Guide

Playing with this class is simple throughout the early part of the game. Their already strong mobbing skill improves from 1st to 5th job, and significantly more when they reach level 200 and higher. This smoothens your game by giving you access to a large map for training. Additionally, due to the class’s buff length, the class can maintain 100% skill availability.

With the support of I-frame skills, the Hoyoung class can quickly escape 1-hit KO assaults and requires fewer resources to master. However, you must always maintain their DPS high because they rely on creating energy for Scroll and Talisman skills.
