Level Content Guide

Quick Jumps

Level 1 - 29

From these levels, follow your class' storyline. They will easily get you to level 30 and on your way towards 2nd job

If you are looking for equipment, monsters at your level will drop the equipment you are looking for. If you wish to buy your equipment, in the town that your character started in will have an NPC that sells Weapons and Equipment. If you are on Victoria Island you can find the following gear for your class here:

Shop NPC

  • MapIcon Perion Perion: Warrior Gear
  • MapIcon Henesys Henesys: Archer Gear
  • MapIcon Ellinia Ellinia: Mage Gear
  • MapIcon KerningCity Kerning City: Thief Gear
  • MapIcon Nautilus Nautilus: Pirate Gear
    • I recommend fighting monsters instead to obtain your gear as it is much cheaper than buying it

Some notable training maps if you do not want to follow your storyline (I suggest you follow your storyline though!) are:


Level 30 - 49

Once you reach Lv. 30 you will have full access to the "Maple Guide". Here, you can begin your Job Advancement. You can do the same for 3rd job and 4th job. You can also bring up the UI by pressing "U" by default. Pressing it twice will expand the UI where you can see all the available content for all levels. You can teleport directly to different places once you have reached the recommended level. You can only teleport back to that area if you are less than 10 levels above the maximum recommended level. You can gain "Completion Stamp" by completing certain requirements to teleport back to that area regardless of your level

Additionally, a lot of other Content in MapleStory can be found by accessing the "Dimensional Mirror" in most towns, you can also find it in the "Quick Move" tab on the top left of the screen in towns

Quick Move


Lightbulb Quest UISidebar Icons

You will also be able to access a lot of the quests in MapleStory by clicking on the Lightbulb icon on the left-hand side of the screen. A majority of these areas can also be accessed again through the Dimensional Mirror once you have completed the initial quest. You can also access some of these areas from the Maple Guide too if you are within the level range

I suggest you press the "My Level Range" button on the bottom right. Additionally, the list of quests you'll see will be quite long but, you do not need to complete all these quests. The necessary ones will have a [Required] tag in red beside the quest

Boss Matchmaking UI

[Tip]: As you level up, even more, you will gain access to more and more bosses. To easily get to some of these bosses (but you must complete their pre-quests first!), you can use the Boss Matchmaking system! You can find it by pressing "F" or "P" by default to open the Friend List or Party List and switching to "BOSS". Whenever you are in a party with another person, you will instantly be queued and teleported to a boss when you accept the notification that pops up. Occasionally you may get an extra party member (but usually they'll leave on their own) but it is a quick way to get to bosses
