Evans seem to be more fun pre revamp as mir no longer attacks with frost breath and fire breath and mir doesn't even attack most of the time anymore.

    What? Mir does attack a lot, with a lot of skills(i didn't really play evan so i don't know names), and now we see evan attacking, before was basically Mir, in my opinion they are much better now.

    Evans now consist of a dual-character system; you can attack with Mir and separately control Evan (who uses elemental attacks). When certain skills are used in combination with each other, they become "fusion skills", resulting in special moves. For example:
    Mir can use Dragon Flash, which causes him to dart back and forth in a short area. Evan can use Wind Circle, which creates a gust of air that damages and pushes back enemies. When you use Dragon Flash immediately followed by Wind Circle, Mir will then perform Wind Flash, where he flaps his wings to generate gusts of wind at enemies. Evan can then return Mir to his side using the "Return!" skill.
    Typically this means that you have to continually set up fusion skills to maximize DPS, however you can mix and match which skills you use to accomplish your goals.

    I agree, I used to really enjoy evan - so much that I mained one and got it to lvl 200. I quit maple for a few years and now evan is so different. There doesn't seem to be a way to glide on Mir anymore (unless I am missing a skill / forgot to set something?), and many of the attacks seem to have changed. I don't even know where to start. I have never really been one to quit a character when the skills are changed - but in this case they changed the play style a lot. I would honestly just be happy having the mobility of gliding on Mir back, that was so much fun and made evan unique.

    I know right? I really miss the re revamped evan where mir attacks instead of your characters. Did they get rid of evan's mount quest at lvl 50 or is it still there? I'm currently doing all the quests right now so I can unlock the mount quest as I skipped the evan quests and I'm currently lvl 51.

    I think this was an unnecessary change to evans. Why not just keep evans the way they were? I liked having fire breath on my mir and watch it attack instead of my character.

    Okay thanks! And do you have to upgrade the saddle every time mir grows at job advancements or is the saddle a one time quest? And how much does it cost?

    Evans weren't that viable, their boss skill was pretty short(i would say shorter than other mages), his mobing was lame for the revamps that came for all jobs, and also he only used fire, and now he use more elements, which i find much more cool since he's suposed to be this multi-elemental dragon master.

    I'd say the mount costs a fair amount; in the lower millions of mesos plus the time to gather materials. But, again, mine's just in progress and I haven't been trying to complete it.

    Since Evan no longer has 10 job advancements I don't believe you need to upgrade the saddle each time. Additionally, the quest is at a weird level since many areas have had their level ranges changed.

    Wait so what level is the evan mount quest now? At least I don't have to upgrade the saddle anymore.
