Phantom Information & Skill Tables (kMS ver. 1.2.149)

December 28, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Originally, the thief hero, Phantom, was a famous thief, able to steal anything he wanted. However, the death of a loved one (Aria, a previous Empress), led him on the path of the hero!

This video features Phantom’s past, including the death of Aria and Phantom joining the rest of the heroes!

This is the new character creation screen, putting a large emphasis on the classes changed/added in Justice! Phantom has 1 Rate of Growth and 3 Potential, Flexibility, and Difficulty.

Like the classes added in the Legend update, you can choose either gender when you create a Phantom.

Phantom’s base is the flying ship Crystal Garden! It hosts his many maids and also his butler Alfred. It allows him to move discretely throughout the Maple World. By talking to the Captain, Crystal Garden will fly to any destination Phantom desires.

Phantom’s tutorial involves him going undercover in Ereb, during a conference with one of the Black Mage’s commanders, Hilla. Hilla gives Cygnus the treasure of Ereb, the Skaia, a jewel that is said to glow in the hands of an Empress. However, it does not glow when Cygnus holds it, and Hilla insists that she is the rightful Empress!

This video plays during the tutorial. Phantom reveals himself and proves the Skaia that Hilla had was a fake. The skills that Phantom used look really cool! Karma, Hyper Body, and Hurricane! There are now English subtitles! If you don’t see them, try pressing the CC button.

Phantom has two weapons! The first is the Cane, his main weapon. Phantom’s attacking skills use this, and in addition, the Cane can change into any type of weapon, which is used when Phantom steals skills from other classes. The secondary weapon is the Cards, which are thrown by Phantom in some of his skills. These Cards can have potential.

Starting from his second job advancement, Phantom has a Card Stack on the side of his screen. This Card Stack is used in the beginner skill Judgement which can be used when the stack is full.

This stack starts off at 20 cards in second job (because of Blanc Carte) and increases to 40 cards in fourth job (because of Noir Carte).

Now for the skills! Thanks to Fiel of Southperry for the skill animations that do not have a character in them! Also, sorry about the speed of the aforementioned animations that do have a character in them, I’ll try to fix that soon… The skills are not actually that fast haha.


Phantom Junior (beginner)

  • Steal Skill: When used, you will enter Steal Skill Mode, which allows you to click on an Adventurer (except Dual Bladers and Cannon Shooters) and choose which skills you want to steal in the Target Skill window. You cannot steal a passive skill, a summon, or a movement skill. Stolen skills will stay with you until you decide to delete them yourself.

  • Skill Management: Manage your stolen skills, choosing which to be active and which to delete. You have 4 slots for first and second job, 3 for third job, and 2 for fourth job. However, if you use a skill then switch active skills, the effect of the first skill will disappear.
  • Judgement: When the Card Stack is full, this skill can be used. All the cards will be used up and a buff will be given for 30 seconds depending on the card drawn. Fortune Card – 5% critical chance increase, Misfortune Card – 10% item and drop rate increase. When used, 5 Blanc Cartes are thrown.

    They have 85% Critical rate when judgement uses the crit buff and 75% if that doesn’t happen. Add SE 15 if you have the critic judgement or SE 25 if you dont’t have it and there you go, 100% crit!
    They also have 70% avoid.

    • Anonymous
      January 20, 2012 at 2:30 pm

      Deadly Instinct increases crit chance by 10%, Acute Sense by 50% and the max amount Judgment could give is 10% which brings a total of 75% with the innate 5% crit chance. Also, I’m pretty sure the total amount of avoid % is 90%.

  5. January 20, 2012 at 6:24 am

    Yeah~ So great! What a wonderful “Helpful Links”! Thank you for your updates ^_^

    Besides, your “skill effects” is improvement. Hope you can print effects like this,

    because it can show us the “overall” effect. It’s a small advice~

    If you steal a party buff, will it still act as a party buff or will it be like a Decent skill?

    • Max
      January 21, 2012 at 4:47 pm

      Yup, it will still be a party skill.

    Is there a list released with skills that u can steal or are all skills available to the Phantom Thief?

    The video…1:48…is that Mercedes and Athena Pierce? Does that mean Phantom also has a connection to Athena Pierce (like Mercedes and Aran I think). And perhaps Phantom and Mercedes has some sort of nice history because it shows that Mercedes is practically in love with him (though he is taken by Aria, I guess). Still, I thinks it’s rather mysterious. When does Phantom come out in GMS? Does anyone know? I really want to make one. The problem is, that when it comes out, it would be almost impossible to steal a skill since there is no one out and about to steal the skill from…

    • James
      February 9, 2012 at 6:33 pm

      Both Phantom and Mercedes were the old Heroes, who sealed away the black mage. With only five heroes (minus one now…), it’s obvious they were at least very god friends. But at that time, Mercedes was taken by Freud (the old Dragon Master before Evan) and Phantom was with Aria.

      Athena knows Phantom, and is a complete fangirl, because when she last saw Phantom, she was a little girl. Little girls kinda fangasm over men like Phantom, and that sticks with them for quite some time, it would seem…

    Why can’t Phantom steal from Dual Blades and Cannon Shooters? Aren’t they classified as Adventurers as well?

    • Max
      January 24, 2012 at 11:17 am

      They are, but you still can’t steal from them. Dunno why Nexon put in that restriction.

      • NovaNuvaMS
        January 24, 2012 at 12:05 pm

        I believe Nexon is making a specialized Explorer Class- Dual Blade, Cannoneer, ????, ????, ????……

        • James
          February 9, 2012 at 6:35 pm

          Almost correct. There is only going to be one more special explorer, a bowman. They are making it so every adventurer class has 3 options at the start (I’m pretty sure, at least.)

    Hate it how Nexon kill Bishop with Phantom now. How stupid they are allow Phantom is allowed to steal HS and Advanced Blessing. They should disable that since those 2 are special skills belongs to Bishop. Now Bishop is getting kicked out from Maple. GZ Maple! Ironic that Bishop was one of the original job.
    That’s so stupid!
