How to create a Beast Tamer

Beast Tamer character creation only occurs for a limited time. Beast Tamer character creations are normally announced for major updates and can happen several times a year

Beast Tamer is only available in Japan, China, Global, and Taiwan versions of MapleStory

Fort, Lai, Eka, and Arby

Stance Change

Beast Tamers do not have regular 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Job Advancements. Instead they 4 different animal stances with their own separate skill trees. The skills can only be used while in that specified stance. There is a Bear stance, Leopard stance, Hawk stance, and Cat stance. Hawk stance and Cat stance are unlocked as you level up. Cat stance, in particular, is a supportive stance that provides useful party buffs and heals

Skill Tree

Additionally, Skills are unlocked at a specified level and require a set amount of Skill Points (SP) to be allocated into that Animal skill tree. You will not be able to max out all your skills. Instead, you will only have enough SP to max two animal skill trees and some remaining for a third tree. Additionally, any skill effects such as passives and actives are only granted while in that particular animal stance
