Defeating Monsters in Maple Story
As you start out as a beginner Maple Story character, the monsters you have to fight are rather weak. When you level up and progress through the game, you’ll notice the types of monsters you fight are stronger with better skills than the lower level monsters. The worst skills they use are the ones you can’t counteract, like raising their own attack or defense. Some skills will have damaging effects to you and possibly prevent you from attacking. There are skills like stun and darkness that will give your character a hard time unless you know how to counter the effects.
Potions are made specifically for countering these monsters’ skills. Each potion will be labeled for its use. They can be found in shops and some Maple Story monsters will even drop them from time to time. If you don’t like using potions, the effects of the magic will wear off over time. You can then resume fighting with your weapons and any skills you have. Of course, it might be hard since they’re so cute.
