Default [MS] New Class: Aran

So as of last night (after a lol 12 hour extension on their patch (roughly 1am to about 8pm?)) the new class, Aran the polearm weilding Pole arm master has been released.

Anyone else here gonna try it out?

I've been playing on it for a little bit and I think it's kinda fun. It's got a limited skill set in the beginning, but it supposedly gets pretty awesome later on. Trying to get the combo achievement medals it kinda lolhard for me, because I don't know where to find big enough mobs to get a high combo rate :P

Also, the preview sprites they kept showing were kinda tanned with white hair, but they only have normal coloration out for them

Edit:

Playing in Khaini, btw, IGN Metafalica

I'm playing an Aran. I think it sucks if you don't have good funds. You also need good control over them.

Mind my asking but, is there any requirement to have an Aran?

I want to see if it's worth coming back.

No, no requirements. Just click create character and click the Aran option.

So they finally released it in global. Control should be easy as I've played as a shadower =).

I'm actually having a lot of fun playing mine really.

Im more used to the mage type classes, but the way polearms work in maple has turn out to work really well for me. I want to bust out my controller and play using that, but I can't find it -_-

And you don't need a lot of funds to play them. It makes it easier, yes, but I'm poor as crap (and have jack crap for equips) and I'm doing perfectly fine. You don't need a lot of dex unless you're going for a better combo streak (like the 500 combo medal), but even without it, you're already hitting multiple times with double slash, and arans are good anti mobbers, so jumping into a fray would give you maybe 6-8 hits at a time (I got up to 390 in a less than a minute in a high spawn area).

Of course, I'm gonna get my last medal like an asshat and just duck and attack, since that only deals 1 damage. D:

Aran is pretty fun, I like it's beginning storyline. Awesome giant axe-thingy lol.

Sadly I still hate MapleStory's grinding, so I won't be playing often.

(Yay for 1 mil on my Thunder Breaker)

What's a best place for an Aran to get the 500-combo streak? o_o The only place I can think of is Evil Eye Caves, but I think there should be more places.

Edit : Nvm I got the Medal :3

for future reference for people, the two best places are Zombie mushroom mini dungeon, on the very bottom floor (AFTER killing everything on the platforms, and maybe having someone help kill stuff from above you) and Monster Carnival PQ (I've gotten up to 700 there and a guildmate got up to 990).

Just be careful not to wear out your attack key. I actually don't recommend playing an Aran on a laptop unless you have an external keyboard or a gamepad (although most gamepad software doesn't play nice with maple).

I would recommend the Zombie Mushroom Mini Dungeon, like Mitchi said. It's easy to get the Combo King Medal at an early level there (got mines at 15).
Crouching down will take a long time, and there's that chance where you accidentally kill your mini mob and they don't comb back; you'll lose your combo. Someone can also come in and attack your monsters (I accidentally did that once ._.)
