It has officially been a month since Maplestory 2 launched back on October 1. At this point and time, we’re quite certain that many players are already sitting comfortably at max level 60. Though, if you’re a veteran Mapler that has been playing since the first game, we all know that one character just isn’t enough. So here are some tips on how to level fast in Maplestory 2!
Level 1 ~ 50
Focus on the main quests
For real, though. Don’t sleep on your main quests. The main quest reward gives so much EXP that you can reach level 50 easily in approximately eight hours. If you’re leveling a second character, it should go even faster. Just skip all the dialogue and cutscenes. Make sure to not get sidetracked by side quests! Plenty of chance, later on, to come back and do them if you care about the story. They are mostly fetching quests so you’re not missing out much by focusing on the main story.
Give your alt the advantage
You can’t do this next bit if it is your first character. But if you happen to be leveling an alt, dump those Rotor Walkie Talkies into the Goldus Bank chest. This will help your alts move faster as they go from one place to another while completing quests. Alternatively, if you wanna save those tickets then just use the Taxi – you just have to pay Mesos. Other than Walkie Talkies, you could also pass your alt a fast mount from your main account. Anything that can give it a little boost, really.
Level 50 ~ 60
You would think that the last ten levels are the hardest, but it’s surprisingly easy. At this point, you’ll be out of main quests. Is this where we succumb to side quests? Hell no. This is where your Life Skills come in handy since they give flat EXP.
It’s essential that once you get your first performing sheet from the quest NPC, you don’t use it on manual performance. Well with the exception of those for the quest. This is because when you perform manually, it consumes the sheet usage amount. However, if done via auto-perform, the usage amount will not be consumed. So once you get to 50, pop that auto-perform 30-minute / 1-hour ticket and you’ll be level 60 in no time.
Besides performing, you could also fish despite it being slightly complicated. It’s really not worth it using auto-fish ticket from beginner level. Ranking fishing up is different too. It’s a whole lot to get into so I won’t but if I do, it has to be a standalone guide. If you don’t mind adding some extra hours to your process, manually get your fishing level to Intermediate then auto-fish from there.
So how do you decide which one today? Simple – check the top left of your screen and look at the ticker. If it’s double EXP day for performing, then perform and vice versa.
Hunt World Bosses
You could solo-surf this but being in a party would be better. It’s really up to you though, it’s just faster with a party and that’s the point of this guide, yeah? Currently, World Bosses give ~15% EXP at level 50. So if you’re down to channel surf and hunt for bosses or is simply just out of auto-tickets, you could opt to do this. Check this MapleStory 2 wiki for approximate spawn time. Here’s the list of World Bosses. Make sure you’re killing those on the list and not Elite Bosses.
That’s it! It’s pretty easy to level in MapleStory 2. There are, of course, other ways to boost yourself. For example, if your main has Rank 4 Cooking, Pine Mushroom Stew gives 50% EXP boost for 2-hours. But, we’re going for the simplest methods. So it’s really just – do your main quests then auto-ticket life skill your way to 60. Personally, from 50 to 60, I left my Priest to smash tunes (auto-perform) for 6-hours and when I woke up, it was 60.
If you’re not yet 60, get there quick since Chaos Mode is coming on November 8 and you don’t want to miss that. Struggling with getting your gear score up to 2100? Stay tuned for my next guide!
