    Odd Jobs Community Thread

    This is a community thread for all things odd jobbed, in similar spirit to the Islander Community Thread. In fact, islanders are themselves considered to be odd jobs in their own right; they are among campers and permabeginners when it comes to odd jobs that are typically recognized on rankings, because the game itself labels them differently (“Beginner”). However, while all three of these jobs share the common trait of never taking first job advancement, it is not true in general that odd jobs do not take first job advancement.

    You may have heard of some odd jobs:
    Others are considerably more obscure (you might be surprised with just how many have already been invented… and how many are yet to be invented!):
    The common trait of all odd jobs is that they are all unusual & suboptimal builds that make use of aspects of the game that mainstream (non-odd) jobs do not. Odd-jobbed characters are challenging to play, unusual to find, and cause us to ask questions about MapleStory that we would never have otherwise asked. It is for these reasons that odd jobs have been an important (if perhaps very small) part of MapleStory since even before the release of MapleGlobal (GMS).

    It is still possible to play and explore odd jobs in newer (post-big-bang, post-chaos, etc.) versions of MapleStory, but their place in the game has typically been crippled, or removed entirely (e.g. STR mages became impossible with the release of Big Bang). Add to that the other host of reasons why people still desire to play pre-big-bang versions of MapleStory, and in modern times there seems to be little hope for odd jobs and their subculture — at least, unless they can still survive on pre-big-bang MapleStory private servers.

    Stuff specific to Oddjobs (the guild)

    Some of you may recognize me as “deer” (or by my IGNs like cervid, capreolina, cervine, hydropotina, and rangifer) and know that I’m the leader of the Oddjobs guild. This thread is inevitably — at least for the time being — going to be Oddjobs-centric, but I don’t want to give the impression that just because I started this thread, it must be for Oddjobs-related things only. All odd-job-related stuff is welcome here!
