Mikhail Information & Skill Tables (kMS ver. 1.2.155)

The new character creation screen, emphasizing Mikhail and the Dual Blader.

You can only create a male Mikhail, and he comes with his own hair and eyes!

An unnamed boy in a small village who possesses the spirit of light is found  by Nineheart after a long search to become the knight of light, Mikhail!

Nineheart trains Mikhail until he’s ready to be reborn as the knight of light!

Here is a video of the full tutorial!

Mikhail uses one-handed swords and has a special shield called the Soul Shield, which grows with him. It can gain experience and level up, and it is also automatically upgraded at each advancement. At the fourth advancement, it becomes the Soul Shield of Justice,and comes with potential. The first reveal will always be 6 str, 24 accuracy, and 6 attack.

Here are my fully levelled up Soul Shield of Pride (2nd job), Soul Shield of Valor (3rd job), and Soul Shield of Justice (4th job).

If you remember the Character Deck system, Mikhail’s card gives 2/3/4/5% in weapon defense. He also counts as a Cygnus.

Until level 120, Mikhail receives the extra 10% exp per level up that regular Cygnus do.

Mikhail has Blessing of the Empress, and increases it by 1 point per 5 levels. However, he can only get up to level 24 Blessing by level up. He can get to level 30 from 24 by doing quests to level up his Noble Spirit skill.

At level 120, Mikhail receives the Cygnus version of Echo of the Hero, and he can also create an Ultimate Adventurer. At level 200, he receives the full version of the skill.

I recorded myself training at Future Ereb. As you can see, Shining Blast is probably the only skill you will use when training…

    Shining blast seems cheap

    • exclamation mark
      March 25, 2012 at 8:51 pm

      Shining Blast: Shoot a strong light in front of you to attack up to 6 enemies for 280% damage six times, with a 40% chance to stun for 6 seconds. (max level: 30)

      if I knew how to bold, I would bold the words “SIX TIMES”.
      meaning, multiply 280 by 6. That would make it 1680% damage, and it can hit 6 enemies plus stun them!!!

      Does it still seem cheap to you?

      • NegaNocturne
        March 28, 2012 at 11:40 pm

        By “cheap”, he means that it is a skill that can easily be used as a spammable “crutch” skill due to its power and lack of restraining conditions.

    wait so whats the differende between dawn warrior and a mikhail thingy?

    • exclamationmark
      March 25, 2012 at 8:46 pm

      dawn warriors are flexible cygnus characters that can only get up to lvl 120.
      Mihile is an NPC and a character from the overall story of MS. He is a job instructor and now that he is his own class you can play him as well!

      I hope this cleared things up for you a bit.

    Mikhail! I was waiting for Justice already now I know why we waited 2 freakin months. They’re giving away all Mikhail’s equips in Korea. I loved the old MapleStory. Apple suits. High level monsters right at cities. NO SKILL STEALLING, Phantom.

      >it’s your problem that you’re not adapting to the current maple.
      >you can always play a private server if it bugs you that much.
      >Phantom doesn’t exactly STEAL skills. I mean, the original character can use them too.

      your post makes no sense anyway~

        Very true, at first I was afraid of my HS being used by some random guy, but now that I know it can only be used as a lvl 10 HS I dont really care, and also only bishops can res =P.

    I was impressed by this class, until i saw the energy blasts. Seriously, can Nexon NOT make a class anymore without a hurricane/energy blast skill? But ive gatta say, Mikhail was a creative selection for a class though

    i mean seriously? this really really sux, this new class will kill the dawn warriors for ever, they have a stance link skill, 10% bonus exp each lvl, they have almost all the good skills of dawn warrior and heroes(the only 1 they missed was combo attack, that would be the end for heroes), he has a nice defense buff +100%, can use rush in 2nd job, flash jump in 1st job, holy charge(holy elemental damage bonus like DW or pallys) and finally the shining blast that is just another kame hame ha! like skill that hit SIX TIMES! and hit SIX MOBS!, i think mikhail needs +80% critical to reach 100 and thats it! ¬¬

      Maybe it hasn’t occured to you, the Mikhail storyline was before he became an instructor, so he may not have learned it. Beside, he has better skills anyway.

    • July 23, 2012 at 2:00 pm

      When your dawn warrior learn the combo attack from Mikhail, didn’t he mentioned that was his new skill?

    honestly i think this was a bad idea but i do like the skills
    soul slash(intrepid slash)
    shining buster o.p(coma)
    soul assault(that new warrior skill)
    shining blast o.p(panic)
    either way they’re op you could wear lvl 50 equips at lvl 200 and do as much damage as a godly hero lvl 200 maybe even more maplestory needs to give o.p classes like this a requirement just like ultamate explorers its just not fair otherwise

    It looks cool, and maybe you will get a better understanding of the Cygnus Background… but honestly I all I wanted were 3 more classes, and that’s it.

    1. Resistance Thief
    2. 3rd Explorer Archer Class
    3. Pirate Hero Class.

    then we would have 30 Classes! More than enough play and then when Maple finally goes out of commision they could make a awesome long standing RPG solo playing game.

  26. July 23, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    Mikhail can level up his Noble Spirit skills the same way as a Cygnus Knight right?
    Then what if Mikhail is over level 120? Can they still do the quest? o.o

    It seems kind of unfair to me if Mikhail can get up to level 200 and kill the same weakened Arkarium 😮

    But if it’s possible, then it’s all good, I’m going to delete my Dawn Warrior and replace it with Mikhail xD
