What is the Maple Rewards System?
The new Maple Rewards system allows you access to items normally sold in the Cash Shop, by using Reward Points that you can earn in the game. You can earn Reward Points in the game by participating in events, playing mini-games in Star Planet, defeating bosses, clearing dungeons, and even leveling up. after you earn many reward points,you can use rewards points to make maplestory mesos quickly.
You can also get a small amount of Reward Points by purchasing items from the Cash Shop with NX Prepaid or NX Credit. Reward Points are used to purchase items in the Maple Rewards Shop or to apply a 30% discount on certain Cash Shop purchases. The items in the Maple Rewards Shop will be updated frequently, so don’t forget to check it regularly!
There are plenty of awesome and fun bosses to train at when you are getting bored of the same old solo training places like Scrapyard.
If your character level is not high enough or strong enough to fight the bosses alone you can join an active guild that does boss runs everyday and they can help you out greatly however it is best practice to learn how to kill a boss by yourself so that you can get full exp and collect the drops that you want.
With the current updates, all bosses give maple reward points similar to NX that you could use in the Cash Shop, they have a special place for it where you can purchase items using your reward points earn from bossing.
Introducing the Maple Rewards system—now you can earn Reward Points through everyday gameplay and spend them on Cash items!
You can earn Reward Points through any of the following:
Here’s how it works:
1. Earn Reward Points through gameplay. You can earn up to 2,000 Reward Points daily (per world) through regular gameplay, and up to 1,000 Reward Points daily (per world) through Star Planet gameplay.
2. Enter the Cash Shop to “store” the Reward Points. Each account can earn Reward Points up to 10 times before entering the Cash Shop to store the Reward Points. However you must enter the Cash Shop to store the Reward Points within 7 days of receiving them, or they will be deleted.
3. You can also earn Reward Points from some Cash Shop purchases with NX. When you purchase a qualifying item, 5% of the purchase price will be received as Reward Points.
4. For Reward Points earned through regular and Star Planet gameplay, your account can store up to 3,000 Reward Points in the Cash Shop daily, and up to 30,000 Reward Points monthly. Including Reward Points earned from Cash Shop purchases, the total monthly Reward Points your account can store is 150,000.
5. Reward Points can be used until the end of the next month after they have been stored. If you have not used them in that time, they will be deleted at 11:59 PM (Pacific) on the last day of that month.
6. You can spend your Reward Points in a couple of ways. Visit the Maple Rewards Shop within the Cash Shop by clicking on the green button on the left side of the Cash Shop. You can also find the Maple Rewards Shop by navigating to the Special Promotions > Maple Rewards Shop category.
7. All of the items in the Maple Rewards Shop can only be purchased with Reward Points. Each item has a limit as to how many times your account can purchase it. The purchase count limits are reset on the first day of every month.
8. You can also spend your Reward Points on up to 30% of the purchase price of regular Cash items. When you select the item to purchase, you can check the box for Reward Points in addition to your regular currency.
9. Reward Points can only be used on full-price (not discounted) items. Some items cannot be purchased with Reward Points: Pet and Equipment Cover Packages, Royal Hair/Face Coupons, All Star Hair Coupons, Beauty Album Expansion Slots, 2X EXP/2X Drop Coupons, Quest Boosters, Nebulites and Nebulite Diffusers, Premium Fusion Ticket Exchange Coupons, Androids and any Android-related items such as Heart and Name Tag, Scissors of Karma/Platinum Scissors of Karma, Sharing Tag, Monster Life Gems, all Surprise Style Boxes and Surprises items, Philosopher’s Book, Gachapon and Remote Gachapon Tickets, Nebula Conductor, Meso Sacks, premium dungeon entrance tickets, Premium Pet Food, Shadow Style, Return of Angel Wing, any Inventory and Storage Slots, or Marvel Machine spins.]]>
MapleStory EXP Leeching mechanics have been slightly tweak this year. If you are out of combat after a period of time, you will not receive EXP based on MapleStory Nexon Official patch notes.
Based from players discussion on MapleStory Reddit, there are 2 rules to follow:
1. The lowest level party member must be within 40 levels of the highest level party member, else the lowest level party member will not receive any EXP from party.
2. The party member must not be more than 5 levels under the monster level, otherwise he/she can’t gain leech EXP from party member who defeats it.
On GMS at least, the hidden map with the Dual Ghost Pirate’s found in Ludi clock tower’s Warped Path of Time 3, give 10k exp each, which is more than even the recommended mobs at for lv 150-165, and they’re only lv 119.
The map has a ton of spawns and the layout is a perfect thin tower with a portal to teleport back to the top from the bottom
First Job Level 1-30
|1-10||–||–||Tutorial for class/Automatic leveling|
|10-30||Flaming Golems||Golem Temple 3 Henesys||Popular spot to level. Reboot approved|
|10-30||Various Monsters||Pantheon Maps||Maps to train on for our Nova friends and are a less crowded alternative to the popular Golems. Pick a monster at or very close to your level. Reboot approved|
|15-30||Blue Mushmom||Blue Mushmom Forest Henesys||Just go through each channel and kill for some quick levels.|
|20-35||Streetlight||Streetlight Row Edelstein||Another alternative to leveling up first job characters. Reboot approved|
Second Job Level 30-60
|30-35||Questline||Ellinel Academy Theme Dungeon||You can begin this questline via lightbulb quests at level 30. These quests mostly consists of kill x number of monsters and loot x item(s). While it is slightly slower than immediately heading to Gold Beach, it is helpful for both Reboot players and newer players with the following completion rewards: 500k Mesos, 100 spell traces, and a level 35 glove (all stat +1, atk/matk +1) along with a cape. Reboot approved|
|35-40||Questline||Gold Beach Theme Dungeon||More kill and collect quests, with a beach theme. Good questline to complete since you would train here anyway. The Gold Beach questline is great for Reboot players and newer players due to the completion rewards: 1 million Mesos, 200 spell traces, and Octopus Earrings (meh). Reboot approved|
|30-50||Emerald Clam Slime, etc.||Seaside 1 and beyond||Most Gold Beach maps are great for leveling, my personal favorite is Seaside 1. Reboot approved|
|50-55/58||Questline||Riena Strait Theme Dungeon||You can access this questline via lightbulb quests at level 50. Good alternative to get a few levels if you cannot kill drakes efficiently. Especially good for newer players and Reboot players, it offers the following completion rewards: 2 million Mesos, 300 spell traces, and a Sailor Belt (+2 all stats) along with the face accessory. Reboot approved|
|50-60||Wild Boar||Burnt Land Wild Boar Land Perion||Decent map and decent mobs if you don’t want to complete Reina Strait and if you are tired of Gold Beach.|
|50-60||Skeledogs||Excavation Intermission Area Perion||Alternative location if you cannot find a map at Copper Drakes. Enter the building for great mob/spawn rate.|
|55-60||Copper Drakes||Silent Swamp Sleepywood||One of the most popular training locations. Offers great mob count and spawn rate. Arguably the best map to grind for elite bosses due to its popularity.|
Third Job Level 60-100
|60-70||Copper Drakes||Silent Swamp Sleepywood||Why leave a great map? Most classes have better mobbing tools with their 3rd job skills which allow you to train more efficiently here. Reboot approved if near level 66|
|60-70||Twisted Jester||Chimney Possessed by the Clown New Leaf City||To get here you need to enter the haunted mansion in NLC, then enter the chimney,and jump on the springs until you are in front of the room up top..|
|60-65||Questline||Mushroom Castle Theme Dungeon||A slightly longer theme dungeon, with several kill and loot quests, and a small jump quest. While the experience earned here is not the best, it is reasonable and is good for Reboot and new players due to having the following rewards: 3 million Mesos, 400 spell traces, and a “Shackles of Love” equip (+2 all stats +1 atk/matk).|
|70-140||Neo Huroid||Romeo and Juliet Party Quest||(Talk to portal, select Party Quest, and talk to Romeo or Juliet) Requires four people within 20 levels of each other. This is the fastest way to level up, but you may have some difficulty if the monsters are too high level for you (its is based off of the party’s average level capping at 99). Reboot approved, good luck getting in!|
|70-90||Big Spider||Verne Mine: Shaft 2 and beyond||Map that offers OK experience rate. I usually train here just to get the Big Spider Familiar to improve drop rate.|
|70-100||Scorpion/Sand Rat||Sahel 2 Ariant/Magatia||Another somewhat popular training map. This map is great if you cannot find a party for Romeo and Juliet PQ or if you want to fight elite bosses. Reboot approved if near 79|
Fourth Job Level 100-140+
|100-140||Neo Huroid||Romeo and Juliet Party Quest||Get your fourth job advancement and come right back! Reboot approved|
|100-140||Various leveled Mobs||Monster Park Extreme||Talk to portal, select Monster Park, and go through last portal to the right. Requires tickets with three being given daily. Reboot approved and great for farming equips|
|100-120||Harp/Blood Harp||Starforce Sky Nests 2/3 Leafre||Requires at least 5 stars on your equips in order to train effectively(an equip that has been scrolled/spell traced and star enhanced 5 times). If you don’t have any star force, you can try training on Sky Nest 1.|
|105+||Various Mobs||Evolution Lab Party Quest||Talk to portal and select Evolution Lab. It requires a few prequests and is not the best source of experience, but can be used to purchase potential scrolls, mastery books, and spell traces. The arguably best map is link 3. Can be done three times a day.|
|105-125||Robo/Master Robo||Toy Factory <Apparatus Room> Ludibrium||Alternative map with decent spawn after finishing your daily quests/bossing. Reboot approved if around 113|
|120-130||Various Starforce Mobs||Starforce Ludibrium Maps Lower Floor Ludibrium||–|
|125-140||Captain/Kru||Red Nose Pirate Den 2 Herb Town||Map with great spawn rate and number of monsters. Reboot approved|
|125-140+||Moon Bunny||Black Mountain Enterance Korean Folk Town||Map with crazy good spawn and good experience. Probably the best place to train 125-140+|
|140+||Leveled Mobs||Dimensional Invasion PQ||Talk to portal, select Dimensional Invasion, and [talk to Piston.](http://i.imgur.com/w23CnRu.png. Limited to five times a day, this PQ offers a huge amount of mobs and spawns them very quickly, with the goal being to eliminate them before they overwhelm the map. Reboot approved and great for equips!|
|140+||Selkie Jr./Slimy||Mysterious Path 3 Singapore||Weak monsters with amazing spawn rate, works well when you share the map as well. This map is great for completing attendance/event quests.|
|140+||StarforceSkelegon/Dark Wyvern||Minrar Forest The Dragon Nest Left Behind 1 Leafre||Requires some funding due to large amount of hp/Starforce requirement]|
|140+||Various Mobs||Temple of Time Maps and Quests||Complete the questline and advance through ToT in order to access higher level maps. These prequests are needed to fight Pink Bean.|
|165+||Official Knight A/B||First/Second Drill Hall Gate of Future|
|190+||Ancient Mixed Golems||Twilight Perion Gate of Future||An expansion on Gate of Future accessible at 190+. These golems may hit somewhat hard and automatically attack you. Also watch out for their wide range attack. This map has great spawn rate and mob count. These golems are level 198, so expect several missed hits if you train here at 190. There is a very small safe spot that all classes can access on the corner of the left edge as it dips down as seen here. Otherwise, you can fly or zip up to the top of the left or right side of the columns|
|200+||Various Mobs||Scrapyard/Skyline/Black Heaven Maps||Housed in the Edelstein region, various monsters level 200+ are located here. At times, various pieces of scrap metal fall down, that do % hp damage, so there are no safe spots. These monsters hit hard, have a good spawn rate and are the current end game mobs.|
Tired of grinding off of waves and waves of mobs? Then take a break and kill some bosses for experience! Unfortunately, bossing usually isn’t the best experience, especially during the early levels, so I will list some of the ones worth killing (for experience). Most Bosses will require some preparation to fight them, such as potions, all cures, and having a high enough range to defeat them in a timely manner. Check the Boss Tab in Maplestory for information on each boss! You can also check out this guide here although it is a year old. Please note the spawn rate/times listed. For some bosses, such as Zakum, you can kill in any form but are limited to 2x a day with any combination. For example you can kill 1x Normal Zakum and 1x Chaos Zakum or 2x Normal Zakum, etc. Also note that the bosses that are spawned on different channels are shared to every player, so first come first serve!
|Level Range||Boss||Location||Description||Spawn Time/Rate|
|15-30||Blue Mushmom||Blue Mushmom Forest Henesys||Easy early level boss that gives good experience for the effort needed to kill it.||1x per channel ~1hr spawn time|
|50-70||Easy Zakum||The Door to Zakum||(limited to 2 times a day) Just go to the Chief Residence in El Nath, talk to an instructor that fits your job, and you will be teleported to the map to fight zakum||2x day Midnight Reset|
|90+||Normal Zakum||The Door to Zakum||(Reccomended at 100+ if not funded) Great source for daily experience. If you cannot defeat the whole thing, kill the arms for experience. 20-30k+ Range needed.||2x day Midnight Reset|
|130+||Easy Horntail||Cave of Life Leafre||Another boss that has split body parts, so more experience! Requires 50k+ range. More difficult than Zakum.||2x day Midnight Reset|
|130+||Normal Hilla||Azwan via Dimensional Mirror||A boss that gives decent experience. Requires some more funding than Zakum due to Hilla’s damage reduction and damage reflect.||2x day Midnight Reset|
|130+||Female Boss (aka Anego)||Zinpangu Parlor||An old Showa Town that spawns in the Hideout.||1x per channel ~12 hour spawn time|
|140+||Chaos Zakum||The Door to Zakum||Zakum with even greater experience! Requires 70k+ range. Be wary of the combination of seduce, dispel, and 1/1 (% reduction of hp/mp to 1).||2x day Midnight Reset|
|150+||Krexel||Signapore Ruins of Krexel II||An easy boss that gives great experience, just be wary that he has a lot of hp. (Protip, use a Rune to boost damage and experience)||2x day 24 hr reset from last entry|
|160+||Horntail/Chaos Horntail||Cave of Life Leafre||Stronger version of Easy Horntail, Normal has more HP than easy. Chaos has weapon damage reflect (left head) and magic damage reflect (right head).||2x day Midnight Reset|
|160+||Bodyguards A/B and The Boss||Showa Town Hideout||A set of three bosses (Bodyguard A/B and The Boss) that requires a comb etc drop from Female boss to fight. Talk to the npc in the last map of the hideout and drop a comb on top of the treasure chest. Gives good experience, but can annoying to fight. Bodyguard A stuns often (most annoying for non-range classes), Bodyguard B attacks drain MP, The Boss constantly uses a 1/1 attack. Auto HP/MP recommended.||1x day 24 hr reset from last entry|
|180+||Pink Bean||Deep Place of Temple: Forgotten Twilight||A boss that requires you complete a long chain of prequests at Temple of Time. Very great experience from both the statues and itself. Pink Bean requires 100k+ range due to damage reflect and its damage reduction.||1x day 24 hr reset from last entry|
|Familiars||Use your familiars while you train, you can easily get a Jr. Boggie familiar at Perion Southern Ridge that heals your MP. I also recommend getting a Big Spider familiar from Eldestein for increased drop rate.|
EXP Boosters Increase the amount of experience each monster gives, so that you need to kill fewer to level! These include the following
|Party Buffs||(This includes a Priest’s Holy Symbol (aka HS) [1.5x] and a Beast Tamer’s Friends of Arby [1.3x]. While not a direct EXP boost, Kanna’s Kishin Soukan (aka Kishin) boosts spawn rate and spawn count of normal mobs.|
|Runes||(An interactive NPC which you talk to (default key spacebar) and use your arrow keys in order to get a 2 minute 1.5x buff. Runes can be used every 15 minutes and respawns on the same map after 1 hour.|
|Cash Shop Coupons||(Coupons you can purchase in the Cash Shop for 2x experience)|
|Mercedes Link Skill||(Level up a Mercedes Character to 70/120 for a 10/15% exp boost)|
|Zero Character Card||(This character to your card set gives a 4%/6%/8%/10% exp boost)|
|Event Coupons||(Events such as Attendence Quests, Hot Time gifts, etc. often have EXP multipliers (1.3x/1.5x/2x) as rewards to completing them.|
|Resting||(By having a character rest as a part time job, a character can potentially get a 1.3x coupon.)|
|Star Planet||(Star Planet rewards 2x coupons for completing mini games.)|
|2x Events||(During some weekends holidays and events, Maplestory can experience a 2x events which stack with other boosts)|
|Burning||Arguably the best effect for leveling. This effect is given to one character per world during an event period via character creation (past event starting at level 10) or questline (e.g. Sizzling Santa quest beginning at level 33) that allows the user to level 3 times per level (e.g. instead of leveling from 33-34, you would level 33-34-35-36) Think of it as buy one, get two free!|
Note #1: The reboot server offers a slightly different training experience than the rest of Maplestory due to the increased difficulty of monsters and slower damage progression. Much of the same areas are recommended due to spawn rate and monster count. However, most classes have much better results training at monsters when you are close to the same level or higher leveled than the monsters. As we continue to playtest the Reboot server, a more detailed guide will be presented. For now, most of the training areas are still the same, but with greater emphasis on completing theme dungeons such as Ellinel Acadamy, Gold Beach, Reina Strait, and Mushroom Kingdom. For a quick check, look for the reboot approved bolded note, which means it is a viable location to train. Basically the same training spots though. Having Cygnus Blessing helps mitigate lower level problems, with Reboot’s passive damage buff helping you train easier on the higher levels.
Note #2: Reboot Players, please remember to try to obtain equips in each slot (Curbrock quests and Theme Dungeon Quests will help you do this) and starforce your equips since it is very cheap and it will greatly help you deal decent damage to monsters (5 stars on low level equips gives +10 all stats).

I have not recived what i paid for and have been trying to contact for the last 4 days through email and live chat. The live chat doesnt even work, it constantly just says waiting. Upon reading recent feedback on the website, I have seen that i am not the only one thats currently getting fobbed off. I want my money back.
Still not getting any valuable response except “I will deliver it soon”. I checked their facebook page and feedback section on their websites and seems that there are many other customers experiencing the same. I’ll just escalate the case next Monday, if I can’t hear from them until then.
I have been waiting for a while and haven’t received anything so far. Your live chat really looks like a bot and hasn’t responded anything valuable, not even an estimated delivery time. I think I’d better get the refund, if you feel like you can’t make the delivery.]]>
Now that i contacted them through paypal they are not responding and are completely ignoring me when i go to them now on their live chat feature. Everytime i contacted them via email i NEVER got a response. Everytime i used their live chat feature they kept repeating the same lines over and over as if they were using a bot. I never reached a solution or some sought of appeasement by contacting them except that they would say that they would give it to me but still havent.
On their website it shows other people purchasing their products and the dates of purchase and arrival. i saw depicted uncountable amounts of consumers who had purchased the products and received it sometime between a few hours to two days and one guy got his in 9 minutes! all after my date of purchase (All products are digital,it is for neverwinter astral diamonds ps4)I still havnt gotten it :/ please help :'( i dont like these people anymore so please may i request that i receive my money back.Thank you :)Kindest Regards]]>
I’ve been trying to work with the seller. The only communication I’ve had is through their online live help. Every time I communicate it’s with a person named Linda and every time I’ve communicated with her, she’d said she’ll have my delivery within a day and other times she’s said within hours. The item is virtual gold for an online game played on the Xbox One. I purchased 1 million gold and so far I’ve only received 120 k. I’ve asked if she has the gold in stock and she’s said yes. If that’s the case, I should have gotten the full delivery within minutes of purchase.
Same company. But this was the first order I did with them. They did fill it partially. I contacted them after a few days and before I placed another letting them know my order was partially filled. I was told on numerous occasions it will be done tonight with nothing being done and my requests brushed aside. It has been a constant battle with these people. But again they marked the order as completed and it was not. since I got half my order I am only asking for half a refund.]]>
as i see blade and soul gameguard can not beat the blade and soul gold hackers,their bot system can still work on it. the hackers can steal crack the gameguard system.but gameguard system will make some bad things to players.
To add insult to injury, some recent versions of Game Guard failed to close down properly when a game which used its anti-cheat engine was ended. It would continue to use the PC’s RAM and resources, injecting itself into running processes without the knowledge of the user. Even in Windows Task Manager, Game Guard doesn’t show itself as a running process, and it masks its huge CPU outlay by hooking into legitimate Windows components.
Sadly, we most likely missed the only real chance to have it removed during the beta, when just a small group voiced their distaste for gameguard for many good reasons, and the majority of people either white knighted or didn’t say anything. Most people were saying they “didn’t seem to be negatively affected” by gameguard and didn’t mind it.
The truth is, it really does impact your game. For some people a LOT more than others, to the point of making the game completely unplayable for them.
It has issues with so many different things (including some of the windows 10 services), I really wouldn’t be surprised if a large part of the “optimization issues” bns has is due only to having gameguard attached to it.
Anyone who’s been around from beta will remember the few times that gameguard was disabled as being the times BnS played the smoothest *by far*.
There were times I thought my ping had drastically improved, just to find out that it was only that gameguard had been temporarily disabled.
Here’s my story,
Any mmo has those damn spammers that deal in virtual currencies in exchange for your real ones. I was fed up with having a painfully slow mount that was about the same speed as me running with an speed boost ability on. Being neverwinter(mmo in general) , I couldn’t just obtain better ones through quests.
mounts and all the cool extras had to be bought from the zen shop or trade house.
To get the best tier of mount, (110% run speed, better buffs) you need to drop an insane amount of money buying directly from zen shop, or trade it with others players with neverwinter astral diamonds ps4. Zen is the currency you buy with real cash. astral is stuff you can convert to zen and can get it a bunch of ways ingame. (True f2p?) that would take months of farming, and I wasn’t even max level yet.
There is an exchange with the astrals and zen, where players trade between each other for what they need at the time. It kinda works out and offers at the time of this post where 1 zen for 200 astrals diamond. Too much grinding however. I only was getting a few thousand astrals a day, and without investing in more characters, I would be capped at 28k astrals a day with a max level with good gear doing every given thing. There goes the f2p route.
Each zen is worth a penny, so 3000 zen is thirty bucks. No way would I go that route for a horse! So the zen market was out of the question.
As I mentioned in the intro, I saw those spammers and decided to go buy some astrals. Went to mmocake offering 1.1m astral diamonds for $13.50. I could just convert the diamonds to over 30 bucks of zen!! The cheapest and quickest route so I thought, oh I was wrong.
Made an account at the site, fill out the correct info for my order, xbox server, neverwinter, 1.1m diamonds, etc. confirm order and pay for it. On all their descriptions they state go through the insta chat to get your stuff. So I did.
This is where I met Linda. Just told her about my order and seemed to know what I was talking about without requiring the order id. I have pictures of the chats, I’ll have to make an imgur to show them but it was infuriating because I felt intentionally lead on because they are a shady company that most likely doesn’t have the stock on most of the games on that site. My case was weird because am a xbox player in the us, and mmocake is based in mainland china. Isn’t their restrictions with that type of thing? They gotta have a dude in the u.s. Or something that handles it but couldn’t arrange such a small order? Linda mentioned delivery teams anytime she essentially went afk. Why wasn’t I just put into contact with them. I asked pretty much daily “this shoulda took 15mins?! “But Linda mostly gave her copy response of “i am working hard on your order” that was for like 3 days. 4th day after my work I told Linda I am refunding my order unless I get status. And she said it was almost ready and would be delivered. But the next day I had no messages, so I refunded my purchase on paypal, wrote the company that my order was too slow, and. A day later the cash is indeed refunded.
Overall, I got my cash back and it seems like components of their company function well enough( finances of course, Linda was a real person) but copied pasted a lot of messages and seemed intent on making me wait on the order so she kept my confidences up with the pretense of getting my order. Otherwise, if they had the stock, she would of arranged my order as soon as I asked.
Shady stufgoing on. What’s the idea here? Make me wait long enough so I forget scam? Or they try to maximize business by posting all these mmorpgs they “have” stock to sell for, Amass lots of orders and then scramble to get the stock at a lower price and slowly deal with the orders for a profit? Who knows. But never use this. 1/10]]>
