Maplestory Power Leveling Guide 2013

UPDATED 03/08/2013

These days, leveling up in Maplestory is much faster than it was in the past.  This power leveling guide will give you a quick path to leveling,  by mixing quests along with the best grinding areas to level you as soon as possible.  I will update this guide as new information becomes available.  Please leave comments with any recommendations you might have as well.

I don't know how you feel, but I hate just grinding for levels. Mixing quests may take a little longer but you don't get as bored.  Not to mention you can get some decent items along the way.  Keep in mind this guide is assuming you don't have any 2x exp coupons.  if you have a coupon then you should grind because you will get more levels in the limited time of the coupon then wasting time traveling around and collecting stuff.

The newest classes such as Angelic Buster, Kaiser, Luminous, Etc. have their own beginning quests to make leveling up much easier.  You should just follow those quests up to the highest point you can.  Leveling from 1-30 is pretty simple with any class.  Just fight any monsters in Victoria island close to your level until you get to 30.  You can even grab some quests along the way to speed things up.  Each town has their own set of quests.  I find that in general doing Henesys quests are the easier. to 30.

Level 1-30 - Your class specific quests or random monsters your level.
For other classes just fight monsters close to your level or Henesys quests.  If you are completely new to Maplestory then click on the leveling up guide below the map to get info on monsters your level.  You want to fight monsters that you can kill only in 1 or 2 hits.

Level 30-40 - Mushroom Castle
You should get an invite to this castle at level 30.  Once you do, go there and complete the entire set of quests.  You will level from 30-40 really fast.  You will also get a decent medal by completing all the quests. If you finish the quests before level 40 just do the repeatable quest at the end until you are 40.

Level 40-45 - Kerning Shopping Center (CD's)
Head on over to Kerning city and take the subway to the Kerning shopping center.  You can start on the series of quests here and complete those if you want or you can just go straight to the top of escalator and fight CD's.

Keep in mind CD's is a popular map, so if you find it to be too full you can go fight drakes right outside of Sleepywood also.

Level 45-50 - Orbis Quests
Talk to Kreil the Fairy and start the quests to help out Spiruna in the lunar pixie area.  You wont have to do too many quests before you get to 50.  You could even stay at CD's to 50 if you want.

Level 50-70 - Chryse Castle
Once you reach level 50 go to Orbis and go one screen to the left and talk to Ericsson.  You should get an invite automatically at level 50.  Talk to the giant people here and do all the quests they tell you too.  The quests are pretty grindy but you can level pretty fast to 70 if you follow them all.  Once you defeat the boss in this area you can get a repeatable quest that gives you over 50k each time.  Not bad at all.

Level 70-75 - Sakura Castle
You should get an invite to this castle at 70.  Otherwise just click on the mirror portal for party quests and is listed there.  Complete all the quests and the Gigtoad boss to get to 75 quickly.  You can start Omega Sector's quests at 70 but Sakura Castle is faster to 75.

Level 75-80 - Omega Sector
If you do all the quests in Omega sector involving the aliens you will go from 70-80 pretty quickly and you will be moving around a lot and doing different things so it is not grindy.  Depending on your class and how well you can kill mobs you can sit in the map that has a heavy spawn rate of Zeta Grey's.  Those are the flying ones.  They can give you pretty good exp.

Level 80-85 - You have a few options here

Jesters in Haunted Mansion
Roids/Neo Roids in Magatia

Gallopera in Malaysia

Depending on how your character plays these areas can be good or bad.  Try them all and see which you prefer.

Level 90-110 - Aliens in NLC, MP3

You can go to New Leaf City and complete the alien quests.  Talk to the Mayor.  Once complete you get access to the alien maps.  They give 3000 experience each.  This place is very popular though, so you might have a hard time getting a free map or someone to share.

Another place to go is to fight the MP3 outside of the ship in Singapore.  This place is still popular but easier to get in than aliens sometimes.

Level 100-110 - Again a couple options

Ghost Pirates in Ludibrum
Dual Ghost Pirates in Ludibrum
Master Death Teddy in Ludibrum

Level 110-120 - Lion Heart Castle (LHC)

Try to get in a party in LHC.  Preferably a party that has a character that can cast Holy Symbol (HS).  either a Bishop or Phantom.  With the new Kanna character class, they have an ability to increase the monster spawn rate.  This is especially useful at LHC.

Level 120-200 - Bear Wolves/Castle Golems/Blood Reindeer in Von Leon Castle

Most LHC party's will be fighting at Crocky's on the first tower map.  Go to channel 1 and ask to join a party.  Or you can create your own and try to recruit people.  Always communicate properly and be polite.

Level 120-200 - Kenta in Danger PQ/Escape PQ/Resurrection of the Hob King PQ/Dragon Rider PQ

I found the Dragon Rider PQ to be particularly fun and you can get the soaring skill to fly around.  The cool thing is you are allowed to do the PQ 10 times n one day.  The EXP is pretty decent as well.  There are pre-quests you have to do.  Talk to Cheif Tatamo in Leafre and start the Dragon Rider's Identity quest .

Level 120-130 - Papulatus twice a day in Ludibrum

Level 120-130 - Kacchu Musha in Ninja Castle

Level 125-135 - Female Boss in Showa

Level 125-130 - Blue Dragon Turtle in Leafre

Level 125-130 - Red Dragon Turtle in Leafre

Level 125-135 - Rexton in Leafre

Level 125-135 - Brexton in Leafre

Level 140-200 - Temple of Time (Furthest map you can go)

Level 165-200 - Official Knight B at Knight Stronghold in Henesys ruins
