Kanna

Story

Japan
June 21, 1582
Honnou-ji in Kyoto

After years of turmoil, Oda Nobunaga finally seized control of Japan, but his desire for power only grew. He sought immortality, and the temple of Honnou-ji would bring it to him. He prepared an ancient ritual of reincarnation that would see him reborn as The Sixth Sky Demon King, but word of the ritual got out, and the feudal lords stormed Honnou-ji to stop Nobunaga while it was still possible. In the end, a young onmyouji named Kanna disrupted the ritual, and the would-be dark lord’s plans crumbled around him.

But victory came at a cost. Just as the ritual was disrupted, a great pillar of light lurched forth from the temple and transported everyone to a strange world. Now, Kanna must conquer this strange place and regain lost strength and allies in order to stop the dark ambitions of Nobunaga’s followers.

Basic Information

MapleStory 2013-03-01 16-33-47-21

Kanna is a Magician (Onmyouji) and her class type is Sengoku. Kanna only has a primary weapon, a new typeFans. She must have a Fan equipped in order to use all of her skills. Kanna uses INT for both the damage and equipment.

Due to the way Kanna’s skills work, she can’t restore her MP through MP Potions. Luckily, the MP recovers slowly.

MapleStory 2013-03-01 16-33-31-93

Kanna also has a fighting companion, a fox called Haku. In combat, Haku can support Kanna, but he can also fight.

Kanna Mount

At level 50, Kanna can obtain the Spirit Fox Haku skill, and at level 200 she can obtain the Mighty Fox Haku mount.

For each gender, you can choose between two face and hair styles. You can also change your hair colour and skin tone.
