MapleStory Mihile Skill Build Guide

calendar_todayPosted on 27th October 2021

Mihile is the sixth Cygnus Knight class released after the original five in 2012 in GMS MapleStory. This warrior job uses both sword and shield to battle monsters of Maple World, with skills infused with the power of light. Considered by many Maplers as one of the more difficult classes to train, Mihile has been revamped several times since its release to make it more playable.

Since Mihile was released after the original five Cygnus Knight classes, it doesn't follow the same job advancement and creation line as other Cygnus Knights. Instead, this character is created directly from the character creation screen and comes with it's own unique story to follow.

Mihile Overview

Mihile was released in the New Dawn update for GMS in 2012 as a Cygnus Knight class. It shares the same Cash Shop Inventory with the other Cygnus Knights and has similar skills to those classes. Mihile is a Warrior job that uses one-handed swords and a secondary shield as its main equipment items. The class is one of the least played in MapleStory due to it's tricky mechanics when training and bossing in end-game MapleStory.

Training Mihile from levels 1-200 are not that bad. There are other classes that have zero mobbing capabilities early on and struggling to grind out the early levels, but Mihile has some pretty decent skills that can help clears maps easily. Mihile does become a little more difficult when you hit 5th job (level 200+) where you're required to proc Royal Guard to effectively train properly. The timing of this skill is a little jarring, however, a recent update made the skill client side so that it wasn't reliant on Ping.

With bossing, Mihile relies on Royal Guard again to stack damage. If you're not good at this, you'll find Mihile's damage output to be considerably low compared with other DPS classes. Mihile has some great support skills, especially in 5th job, that help party members tank damage and survive 1-hit KO attacks. Royal Guard also means you can get an i-frame to help with those one-shot hits that relies on your timing of the skill.

  • Weapon: One-handed sword
  • Job: Warrior
  • Class: Cygnus Knight
  • Shared Cash Shop Inventory: Blaze Wizard, Wind Archer, Thunder Breaker, Dawn Warrior, Night Walker, Mihile
  • Legion Block: + MAXHP (250/500/1000/2000/2500)
  • Link Skill: Knight's Watch (Level 3: Knockback Resistance: +100%, Duration: +130 seconds)
  • Primary Stat: STR
  • Inner Ability: 20% Boss Damage

Mihile First Job Skill Build

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

  • Soul Blade (MAX)
  • Royal Guard (MAX)
  • Weightless Heart (MAX)
  • Soul Devotion (MAX)
  • Soul Shield (MAX)

In first job you get Soul Blade as your main mobbing skill. It hits up to three enemies at a time and can be quite slow, so if you have any Green Attack Potions, use them!

You also get one of your main skills that you'll be using throughout playing Mihile: Royal Guard. By timing enemy attacks on you correctly, you can block all the damage and create an explosion of light to deal damage. You'll also get a damage buff that is stackable, making your attacks significantly stronger.

Weightless Heart is your double jump skill for getting around larger maps.

  • Physical Training (MAX)

In second job you get a new main mobbing skill called Soul Driver. It can hit up to 6 enemies and deals decent damage to them.

You'll want to max your attack speed booster first, and then get those passive damage buffs with Sword Mastery and Final Attack helping to increase your damage.

Rally is a buff skill similar to Warrior's Rage skill that increases damage. Radiant Driver is a rush skill that you probably won't use very often.

The rest are good passive buffs for Mihile.

Each class gets their own skills to use, along with boosting nodes to increase the damage of existing skills. To obtain new skills, you open up items called Nodestones, which drop from every mob in Arcane River.
