Maplestory Guide – Pianus

A favourite of most Paladins out there I’m sure. With 4th job Pianus a total joke now, a decent (full) party can expect to take one down in 5 minutes easily. Pianus can be found at the bottom of Aqua Dungeon, where it spawns every 24 (Right) to 36 (Left) hours.

The left Pianus has 24,000,000HP while the right Pianus has 30,000,000HP

Minimum HP: 3,800 (Left), 4,900. (Right) You might be able to try earlier though it’ll be risky.

Boss info: Pretty simple really, all you need is the minimum HP and at least one person who can do 10,000+ every hit. (Dark Knights and Heroes are excellent for this) The reason for this is because Pianus summons bombs which will explode when their HP is between 1 and 5,000, dealing around 10,000 damage to anyone nearby, ouch. Not nearly as dangerous as it sounds though.

Aside from that, Pianus has all the typical attacks you’d expect: a big beam dealing 3,700~ (left) or 4,700~ (right), avoidable 10t weights that drop down dealing the same damage as the beam and of course, HP 1/MP 1. It also casts physical and magic immunity. (far too frequently if you ask me…) It can also dispel and lock skills, though the right side will only do this if someone is standing behind it (in it). If you’ve been wondering what I mean by left and right, two Pianus (Pianii?) can spawn in the same map, obviously on the left and right side. Though similar, they have several differences: The left one has lower attack, hp and defence. But dispels and locks skills far far more often. It also gives around 300,000 less experience than the right one.
