In MapleStory Live, a player may select a certain build for their character. This build determines how your Ability Points (AP) are distributed upon leveling up. There are four different distributions you can choose from: Defensive, Offensive, Balanced, and Custom. Defensive primarily focuses the character's AP on defensive stats, while offensive focuses AP on offensive stats. Balanced distributes stats according to equipment, class, and level. It emphasizes on balanced stats, while Defensive and Offensive emphasize on defensive and offensive stats respectively. Custom allows the player to distribute their AP freely instead of having it distributed automatically. A build must be chosen before leveling up, otherwise the AP will have already been distributed. The current build may be changed at any time by navigating to the menu's Status screen.
