A Link Skill is a special skill each job have in their beginner skillset. Unlike regular skills, Link Skills can be shared or "linked" between characters once the character reaches Level 70, however the following rules apply:
  • You must have completed your 1st Job Advancement before you can start linking any skills.
  • The Link Skill character and the receiving character must be on the same server owned by the same account
  • Receiving characters cannot have the Link Skills already. (i.e. Two Kaisers cannot both give Skill links to the same character, and a Beast Tamer cannot give her Link Skill to another Beast Tamer.)
  • The Link Skill character can change who gets the skill two times every day after giving it.
  • One character can only have a max of 12 Link Skills, not including their own if they have one.
  • In the case of shared Link Skills like the Explorers, Cygnus Knights and Resistance, using the same certain class will not raise a link skill past it's second level. (I.E. Leveling two Heroes, Battle Mages or Wind Archers to 120 will not raise their respective link skill to 4.) 

Just like regular skills, Link Skills may have skill levels in of themselves. In general, Link Skills will have a maximum 3 levels (2 in Korean Maplestory), however in the case of jobs like Zero, their level cap may be higher and in cases of job branches like the Explorers or Cygnus Knights, they can reach an even higher cap when combined with different jobs in the same category.

  • Level 1 is given when character is made
  • Level 2 is given when character is at Level 120
  • Level 3 is given when character is at Level 210, keep in mind not all link skills can reach up to 3.

The following is a list of all 29 Link Skill Levels (currently in GMS), ordered alphabetically from job.
