Depending on the main stats and your playing style. You can go for a couple different builds in the game of Pocket MapleStory. Below is a quick overview of these stats builds and how you can go about building your characters.
It should be noted that in the case of Angelic Buster, STR is the main defense stat. So for example, instead of 3 Dex, you will set 3 STR as a auto battle Angelic Buster to tank the monsters.
3 Pure Dex: Auto Combat All The Way:
This is your auto combat build for virtually all classes. If you are a first time player without much meso and you do not plan on spending real money on IAP’s. This is the build for you. You can occasionally mix in a couple main stats here and there, but you should generally make sure to have enough defense to continue your auto combat grinding at all times.
Check for more detailed strategies about how to do auto combat efficiently.
(Angelic Buster: Pure STR)
2 Dex / 1 Main Stat Hybrid
This is a variation of an auto combat, you get slightly less defense than pure dex, but you get some what higher damage to kill faster. You can go this route if you only want to auto combat once in a while, but still enjoy manual play once in a while to spam your skills.
(Angelic Buster: 2 STR / 1 DEX)
1 Dex / 2 Main Stat Hybrid
This build variation is manual play build. You deal decent amount of damage while still having a minor defense so that you do not get 1 hit killed. You will generally need to enhance and upgrade your defense gears to be viable.
(Angelic Buster: 1 STR / 2 DEX)
3 Pure Main Stats Pure Offense
When you do pure main stats, you will generally enjoy much higher damage output. However, you should generally ease into this or respect at higher levels near the level cap. The reason is that pure main stat builds require great to fully enhanced gears to be viable. Without the proper defense from gears, you will find yourself dying consistently.
With pure stats build, you should still consider adding a few points into dex if you find yourself missing too much. The pure offense is only really viable at end game level 130+ if you are willing to miracle cube your gears with accuracy boost.
(Angelic Buster: 3 DEX)
