Mechanic Class Guide

Mechanic Banner.png


Updated for GMS Rise Against
Welcome to my comprehensive guide for Mechanic. This guide has everything a Mechanic need to know varying from skill builds to AP distribution to training spots to equipment to medals! We have everything you need to know! If you want to find the skill build for your level, just press on your relative job advancement under the the skill build section in the tables of content. From there just scroll up or down to find your level. Please do not edit without my permission.


Mechanics are the third addition of the Resistance, representing the Pirate branch. They are vigilantes who fight the Black Wings, a criminal organization threatening to destroy Maple World. They come from a new area known as Eldenstein.

Game Play

The Mechanic is similar to a gunslinger. They use guns, but they are always mounted on their robot. The robot gives them low mobility, but they have a dash skill which can make them move quickly. Their robot can also summon minion robots. The robot is basically a tank.Mechanics uses Guns as their main weapon of choice, but they do not use the guns directly. Instead, they are tools used for your mech suit, which you gain as you advance as a Mechanic.
You start at Eldenstein, at level 1. You are to complete a series of quests to level up and advance. At level 10, players have the opportunity to become a Mechanic. They must speak to Headmaster Ferdi in Edelstein. He will give the player a letter, which will teleport you to the Underground Base when used. Afterwards, just speak to Checky and he will advance you to a Mechanic.

Ap Distribution

The main stat that you will be assigning your points to is Dexerity. You have the following three options to take for your AP distribution.

Regular STR

STR = Your Level. Plain and simple; Auto-Assign can be used to achieve this AP Build. Though most people will cap their STR around 50 to 60. It's best to plan ahead instead of plainly putting STR; you could end up with a overflow of STR. This AP Build is probably suited for those who aren't not concerned for damage or don't plan to dish out the work and funds for gear.


STR is capped 20-40 Adjust your STR depending on the amount you're willing to spend and work for your gear. This build is recommended for those who have a little bit of funding.


You don't any points into Strength. Nowadays it is quite common. This is not recommended for those who are just starting. You can easily achieve this by having Evolving rings, Chaos Zakum Helmet, Horntail Neckelace, Pirate Training, Cannoneer Link Skill and more.

Reasoning: You want to get the highest increase from Prototype as soon as possible. Also, you want a good mobbing and 1v1 skill, Flame Launcher and Gatling Shot. Once you meet the prerequisite of Level 10 Gatling Shot, go all out on Flame Launcher; it's mobbing capabilities will level you fast. We like extra firepower on our 1v1 so we will max Gatling Shot first. Drillhands is only used for rushing.
