            Knowing how Maplestory works I can speculate that the next class will be a Nova Archer likely to be a regular bowman however i wouldnt be surprised if it were a cross bowman. After that is likely the Nova thief which will most likely be an assassin but again i thought the warrior was going to be more of a paladin so dont quote me on any this. this is speculation based on my experiance with maplestory since GMS v0.07. Last will be the Nova mage. Maplestory doesnt like to release to of the same class type in quick succession so since luminous was a mage and was the most recent class before nova i can almost guarantee the order in which i have stated them to be realeased being
            1.Warrior
            2.Pirate
            3.Archer
            4.Thief
            5.Mage
            similarly to the heroes but since there is no pirate hero you swap one of them out in this case evan since aran(warrior) came first then evan(mage being which is the pirate in this case) then mercedes(archer) Phantom(thief) and luminous(mage again). understand what im saying?

            August 17, 2012 at 3:58 pm

            Likely the next 3 Nova will be released in this order
            1.Archer(regular bow)
            2.Thief(Claw)
            3.Mage(no specific info)
            Dont quote me on this. just speculation

            if you remember in the Ellin forest story it talks about the characters daughter who sails away and starts the pirates and ellin forest happened slightly after the heroes incident. i like the idea of light and darkness and mage was the best way to execute and since they havent had a mage class since battle mage. so yeah hope that helps.

        y’know, they don’t actually have a warrior either. it’s pointed out in-story they don’t train those classes, so why are people so obsessive about the notion?

        yes yes DS is listed under resistance’s “race” but he’s still the same sort of character as the heroes and novas, that is, one who’s defined rather than a blank slate. he’s not a “normal” person like the other resistance classes, the cygnus knights, and the explorers/adventurers.

      August 17, 2012 at 5:16 pm

      Why? That makes no sense. They don’t all start in the same spot like adventurers or KoC do. That’s exactly why they’re all separate. Like how Jett, Dual Blade, and Cannoneer don’t get bunched in with Adventurers, even though they are. It’s because their intros are all different.

            during the “birth of the alliance” stuff, you see a guy aran standing in for perion’s leader, but female aran when you get out of the cutscene stuff. wizet’s been indecisive.

    • Blitzscreig
      August 19, 2012 at 7:15 pm

      In the orignal commercial for Aran he was male. In the chaos update, and reorganization update he was depicted as male. In the silent crusade quests he was male. In the tower of god crossover comic he was male. Nexon can’t make up their mind. I think it would make more sense if they just kept him male.

    I think nexon just doesn’t care about Aran’s gender anymore XD but i think they use fem because she was the first NPC of aran made. which was for the maple idol event wasn’t it?(maybe im wrong) i would think it just be a snap altering an already made character to fit different stories than make a whole knew npc..not that it takes that much. cause canonicly aran is both lol chase for akyurem he’s a dude now he is a she. i prefer male aran anyway fits the snarky personality they try to give him

    Didn’t Shakar like JUST show the image of the mage? Oh, I get it.. So you think they’re going to have archers shoot lightning from their fingers. As an experienced bowman I can say Nexon would never give archers something that cool.

    which makes room left for
    1 mage Oz the blaze wizard
    1 pirate Hawkeye the thunder breaker
    2 thieves Resistance thief and Nova thief
    3 archer Subclass archer ,Irena the wind archer and Nova archer

    Female Aran has always been canon ever since phantom: Aran was a chick in the Phantom story quest and the picture of the Black Magician boss fight has Aran as a girl.

    I thought I read somewhere that Silent Crusade was made in Japan’s MapleStory (And was originally supposed to be JMS exclusive), so why would that Aran be used as proof of a Male Aran for canon if it wasn’t originally an Idea from Korea?

      because the version with the male aran was invented by kms, not jms. the silent crusade made by jms didnt aran, freud, arkarium, crimson rock, or any of that stuff, and had a radically different story, and the npcs had different roles, most notably starling and crow, and just had most of the same bosses

    O_o http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htlaEQXsJ4g pretty sure this prove Aran is a girl. I never thought of Aran as male, after seeing this. I do agree tho that they shouldn’t had release Aran’s trailer as a male. oh well. its Nexon.

      ithink aran was supposed to be Alan, but was just a translation error, but they used the fact that Aran sounds more girly as an excuse to change Aran’s canon gender to female, so they could have more people play the last hero by making him male so that more people could relate to him, since most people playing this game would most likely be male.

    TimeFromHere :
    aran — warrior class
    evan — NEW class
    mercedes — bowman class
    phantom — thief class
    luminous — magician class

    Evan is a mage. Evan uses mage equips, a wand, and is a MAGICIAN.
