MapleStory Khali Skill Build Guide

August 30, 2023

Khali is a brand new class for MapleStory and this class is part of the Flora MapleStory classes, using LUK as the primary stat and a brand new weapon type called the Chakram. This Skill Build guide will look at all the skills for Khali, including Hyper and 5th Job Khali skills!

Khali arrives on MapleStory GMS on June 28th 2023 and its been a while since MapleStory has released a new class for us to play with! The last one was Lara, the Anima Mage class.

Khali Overview

Khali is released during the MapleStory GMS Savior Update V.242 and on release will be a Tera Burning character (Gain 3 levels instead of 1- this effect might not be available once the event is over!).

Khali relies on her Void Rush skill, that allows her to dart past enemies before delivering devastating damage. The class makes use of "Arts" skills that help reduce the cooldown of Void Rush; by the time you hit 5th job, you'll be able to chain lots of dashes with Art skills do travel across maps in a blink of an eye! The class's asthetics are desert-themed; Khali comes from the desert town of Erimos. You will have to undertake a story quest line before you get free for Maple World at around Level 30.

The class does have quite a few skills you need to manage; chaining your skills properly allows you to ping around maps with ease, dealing damage to all spawned mobs and generally being able to wipe maps with ease. After a small learning curve, Khali starts to feel very mobile and fun. There are skill animation cancelling moves you can master to further enhance this class, but those can be learned once you dive deep into the mechanics of the class.

For bossing, Khali relies a lot on her Void Rush dash skill, and that can sometimes be a problem for bosses. Not to worry; you can cancel most animations skills for this class using certain skills, preventing you from moving all over the place and getting 1-hit. You also get an i-frame in 4th job called Desert Veil, which gives you invicibility for 3 seconds! You also get second iframe in 5th job!

Khali releases June 28th, 2023 in GMS! Check out the New MapleStory Class Preparation Guide for getting ready to play your new Khali!

  • Weapon: Chakram
  • Job: Thief
  • Class: Flora
  • Shared Cash Shop Inventory: Illium, Adele, Ark
  • Legion Block: + LUK (10/20/40/80/100)
  • Link Skill: Innate Gift (Damage: +5%, Upon Attacking, Recovery Chance: 100%; Recovery: 2% of Max HP/MP per sec, Duration: 5 sec, Cooldown: 30 sec)

Khali First Job Skill Build

You can max all of your skills in first job. Follow this build:

  • Arts: Cross Cut (+1), Spark (+1), Void Rush (+1)
  • Flare (+1), Spark (MAX)
  • Arts: Cross Cut (MAX)
  • Void Rush (MAX)
  • Flare (MAX)
  • Patience (MAX)

You start off with Khali combining two skills: Void Rush, which is your dash skill and allows you to move left or right, followed by Arts: Cross Cut, which is your main attacking skill. Arts: Cross Cut can reduce the cooldown of your Void Rush (which is 5 seconds), so it's best to utilize these skills together to create fun combos.

Spark is your double jump; you only need 5 SP to Max it out so better to do it early as your Void Rush is quite useless during early levels.

You get two passive skills: Flare, which gives some flat stat boosts and Patience which increases your Speed and Jump.

Skill Description & Overview

Icon Skill Description Type
Arts: Cross Cut Arts: Cross Cut Swing the chakram diagonally for a powerful slash to enemies in front. Main Attack Skill
Spark Spark Leap once more while already in the air. Can move upward by pressing the Up key at the same time. Jump Skill
Void Rush Void Rush Move quickly in one direction to leave only an afterimage. You can move left or right by also pressing the relevant arrow key. Not affected by cooldown reset. Level 10 required to learn Insanity I. Dash Skill

  • Arts: Dual Edge (MAX)
  • Insanity (MAX)
  • Arts: Crescentum (MAX)
  • Impulse (MAX)
  • Chakram Mastery (MAX)
  • Physical Training (MAX)

In second job, Khali becomes a lot more fun to play! The Insanity I Skill now allows you to use Void Rush in 8 different directions and you can combine it with the new Arts: Crescentum, which reduces the cooldown of the skill by 5 seconds (meaning it allows for a free use of Void Rush!).

Arts: Dual Edge is your new attacking skill, which should be used when Crescentum is on cooldown.

Get your Mastery up to 5 so you can unlock the Chakram Booster for attack speed increase. Impulse provides lots of Critical Rate and Critical Damage, so max that once your main attacking skills are done.

  • Vigilance (MAX)

In third job, you get more improvements to Void Rush with Insanity II Skill. You can now Dash up to four times; Void Rush can be used twice and you can then use Crescentum to reset the dash for a total of four dashes.

You will need to chain your Void Rush with new Hex skills in order to use the second dash movement of Void Rush. Don't forget to toggle Void Enhance to ON!

You also get a Summon Chakri skill, which combined with Resonate, allows you to create projectiles that fly around the map killing enemies. You activate the Chakri using Hex-Type skills, so get used to using these as when you see a bunch of Summon'ed Chakri.

As you progress, you get two new Hex skills but both have a long cooldown, so you should alternate between the two. Insanity III improves Void Rush even further, with more damage and enemies hit.

Void Blitz will generate more Chakri summons when used so combining this with a Hex skill can help wipe out maps.

Desert Veil is an i-frame but you won't need that until you start bossing in 5th job.
