Bravers of the ocean waters and notorious for their die-hard attitudes, the Pirates are the fifth and final Explorer and overall character classification (or "class") introduced to MapleStory. Whether firing off high-density energy bullets to enemies with unbelievable ferocity or delivering hypersonic kicks and punches to foes in a fury of earthshaking hand-to-hand combatives, the Pirates own the marine world led by their fearless representative and captain, Kyrin.
Within the Pirates, there are two job branches: Corsairs and Buccaneers (Cannoneers are a special case that can be found on their own page). As their main weapons, Corsairs use Guns that vary in speed every 5 levels and Buccaneers use Knuckles, braces for hand-to-hand combat. Although the Corsair's gun gets relatively low hits, higher hits are more consistently achievable when attacking monsters close to the Pirate's level while using the skill Bullet Time.

When you reach level 10 as a Beginner, aspiring Pirates can go to the Navigation Room in the Nautilus and talk to Kyrin, who will advance you to a Pirate. You will be given a HP and MP boost, as well as a basic pirate weapon.
Once a Pirate reaches level 30, he/she can return to the Navigation Room and talk to Kyrin. She will give you a choice between Brawler or Gunslinger, and will allow you into another map with the task to collect 30 Dark Marbles from the OctoPirates inside. Once the Dark Marbles have been obtained, return to Kyrin to advance to either Brawler or Gunslinger, depending on your choice.
Upon reaching level 60, you will receive a lightbulb on the side from Kyrin. After speaking to her, you must head to the Chief's Residence in El Nath and speak with Pedro. He will send you off to defeat the Dark Lord's Clone. First, you will need to access Ice Valley II, which can be accessed via two methods:
- You can either walk to the right until you reach Cold Field II, and then keep taking the top portal until you reach Ice Valley II.
- Take the Danger Zone Taxi to Ice Valley II for a fee of 45,000 mesos.
Once you reach Ice Valley II, talk to Jeff, who will send you to Sharp Cliff I. Enter the middle portal on the bottom (indicated by a stone) to access Holy Ground at the Snowfield and click on the Holy Stone at the bottom of the map, which will send you to another dimension. Once there, walk to the right portal to enter the Dimensional World, and defeat the Dark Lord's Clone inside to collect the Black Charm. Return to Pedro with the quest item in hand for a classy new job title and a new set of flashy skills.
After reaching level 100, you will receive a lightbulb on the side from Pedro. After speaking to him, you must head to Leafre and venture to the Forest of the Priest (which can be accessed by walking to Valley of the Antelope 1 and entering the portal on the top right (indicated by a wooden face-like structure) to meet Samuel. He will give you the task to kill one Manon, Herald of Heroes and one Griffey Herald of Heroes to obtain Heroic Pentagon and Heroic Star, respectively. Return to Samuel and then speak to him again to advance.
