Warriors are part of the Explorers and one of the five class archetypes that other jobs in MapleStory draw from. They deliver attacks with brutal efficiency and raw strength. Warriors have the highest base HP and the lowest base MP of any. A Warrior can wield the widest variety of weapons in the game, from swords and axes to spears and blunt weapons, and they can also use shields. Warriors' job advancements can branch into any of three directions depending on what weapon they choose to specialize in.

When you reach level 10 as a Beginner, aspiring Warriors can go to the Warriors' Sanctuary in Perion and talk to Dances with Balrog, who will advance you to a Swordman. You will be given a HP and MP boost, as well as a basic warrior weapon.
Once a Swordman reaches level 30, he/she can return to the Warriors' Sanctuary and talk to Dances with Balrog. He will give you a choice between Fighter, Page, or Spearman, and will allow you into another map with the task to collect 30 Dark Marbles from the Skeledog inside. Once the Dark Marbles have been obtained, return to Dances with Balrog to advance to either a Fighter, Page, or Spearman, depending on your choice.
