A magician is one of the five class archetype that other jobs in MapleStory draw from. They make use of unrivaled magical power to attack foes from a variety of ranges, usually in the interest of backing up comrades and keeping foes from all directions at a safe distance.
Boasting a magic attack level greater than any of the other classes, the broadness of their potential is such that upon 2nd job advancement, a magician must choose to specialize, branching into either Ice/Lightning (I/L Wizard), Fire/Poison (F/P Wizard), or Holy Magic (Bishop). All Magician Explorers specialize in wands or staffs as primary weapons, and shields or Magic Books as secondary weapons.
