    It's not grindy any more, but oh wait, you didn't read the thread and learn about the big bang update.

    Infact, my sister reached level 40 in 2 days, granted, last night she played for 18 hours, but still.

    Edited:



    yeah use that keyboard thing.
    levels 30-40 is like the easiest levels in the game even if you're not a mobber

    Mushroom kingdom quests
    Resistance capsules(If you can)
    CPQ max rombots

    lv40 in 4 hours

    There is a new hack for Wild Hunters that allows you to send a packet to the server containing any monster ID and spawn it with the capture skill.

    This is the result:

    Basically bosses can be spawned anywhere. (and if they spawn a Pink Bean the entire map gets a +35 wep attack buff)

    I played MS for a few weeks a few years ago then got bored from all the grinding. Is it true that it doesn't take a ridiculous amount of time to level anymore?

    Not sure if I want to play a Mechanic for its overpoweredness or a crossbowman because there aren't many of them and it'd be a niche.

    Oh wait, Mechanic isn't unlocked yet. Well, I'll be an Xbowman for now. What server should I play?

    Since the grind was my biggest enemy in this game, and they lowered the exp needed to level, I might start playing this again. Thanks Darrylop! :buddy:
    Dude, I just started playing the game again. My new hunter got level 22 in just one day. Hell, a year before this my Aran got lvl 30 in less than 24 hours, but only due to massive boredom and grinding on my part. I've been off and on playing my hunter and hes lvl 22. There is a HUGE difference in exp.

    Bellocan has a huge cesspool of idiots who like to use smegas just to annoy people. Happens about once a week at late night. Other than that though, it's a half-decent population.

    Play in Zenith!

    Advice for newcomers or old veterans:

    If you're making a new character it's highly advisable to play in a relatively unpopulated world, due to less lag, cheaper items, more available training areas, etc.

    Try Zenith, El Nido, Arcania, Kradia, Yellonde...
    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _______________________________________________

    -Playing as bandit, dual blade, wild hunter, crossbowman is not advised; equips are super expensive, due to insane influx of dual blades and wild hunters. Assassins are also extremely expensive due to the fact that they have to buy stars and expensive equips. On the other hand, the cheapest classes continue to be Pages due to their low population and unique weapon (Blunt Weapon) and now Rangers/Wind Archers, due to their decreasing population. And of course mages, but who wants to be a mage?

    -If you want high damage and you are unfunded, then easy ways to achieve this are to choose the Cygnus Knight Dawn Warrior (or any Cygnus Knight, all of them get an AP bonus) or resistance Battle Mage, both of which have infamously high base damage.

    -For every character that's at least level 50, there's a good 20-25 mill that can be earned by doing certain quests that give scrolls, see:

    http://www.basilmarket.com/MapleStor...Money-199.html

    -Be careful of the FM, don't sell items to merchants, sell items to people who actually need them and who aren't going to sell them again to make a profit off of you. To ascertain the value of an item, try to search for it in the FM rooms. Remember that store prices are going to be inflated and that you can probably sell for 60%-75% of store price in the FM entrance.

    -Don't spend mesos on equips until you're around level 40, when you'll need the damage for Carnival PQ. Reason being is that from 1-30 you don't really need equips, seeing as you'll be doing KPQ till 30 and the Mushroom Kingdom questline till 35, in which you can obtain special 35 armor by defeating the colored Yeti Bosses near the final stages of the questline.

    In Korea the Chaos update(PvP) is out in the testing servers.

    Info found on this blog(Can't find the exact link atm): http://spadow.wordpress.com/

    Tommorow I'll start playing this game again after I do some research. Should I go Paladin or Hero? Not going to be funded by another char at all and both are good at solo boss running, which is what I want.

    Edited:

    Seems like Chaos update adds proficiencies, such as mining and herbalism. Maybe due to Runescape popularity?

    I'd personally say Hero. Heroes got more oriented towards being bossers with Big Bang. They're one of the few classes that can ignore monster defense, and Enrage adds a whopping +60% damage to one monster.

    Paladins are more defense / party oriented. They have one of the better party skills in the game (+2 to all 4th job skills), and most of their new skills require shields, restricting them to lower-hitting one-handed weapons. A good one-handed weapon + attack shield can surpass a good two-handed weapon, but that attack shield will cost far more money than most people can get in this game. On top of this, they rely on elemental attacks for damage, and not all bosses have elemental weaknesses.
