MapleMS was the first successful progressive EXP rate server.
Grinding in Low EXP rate servers becomes tedious and boring after level 70, while leveling in Mid/High EXP rate servers is way too easy causing much of the early content to be skipped, and the gameplay quickly gets stale and boring.
Our solution is Progressive Rate EXP. At level 1 you start off with an EXP rate of 1x. The EXP rate keeps going up gradually as you level, peaking at level 200, then slowly going down again until max level 250.
Level 1: 1x
Level 10: 3x
Level 30: 8x
Level 50: 12x
Level 70: 20x
Level 100: 30x
Level 200: 100x
Level 250: 50x
Also, for every character level 200 or higher on the account, you get +20% extra bonus EXP rate.
EXP from quests and PQs is multiplied by an additional 3 times.
Meso Rate: 2x
Drop Rate: 3x
You can view your exact rates at any time by typing the @rates command.
Linked Bonus Stats
The game has so many unique classes, yet on most servers you only play on a single one or at most have one extra mule for the sole purpose of leeching yourself. We want to encourage all classes to be played, and also for the whole world to be explored.
There are 4 types of bonus stats:
Linked stats - For every 25 total levels on unique class branches, you will gain +1% all stat on all of your characters. In total, there are 20 classes: 12 Explorers, 5 KOC, Aran, Evan, and Iron Man.
Crusader's Codex - aka Monster Book. For every 10 unique monster cards collected, you gain +1 all stat. For every 1 monster card, you gain +1 HP. This number stacks with the linked % mentioned above.
Quest Bonus - For every 10 total unique quests completed across all of your characters, you will gain +1 all stat. This number stacks with the linked % mentioned above.
Achievements - For every 10 achievement points on your account, you will gain +1 all stat. This number stacks with the linked % mentioned above. Type @ach to view your achievements.
The bonus stats are added to a special item which you can find at the bottom of your Equipment window. You can also type @bonus or @bonus2 to see a detailed list of all bonus stats.
Additionally, HP gain per level is multiplied by 1.5x. Combined with monster cards this means no need for HP Washing.
All equipment (including Pet) can be leveled up 5 times by simply killing monsters while having the item equipped. Each level gives the item bonus stats.
The higher the stats on the item, the higher the bonus gain from leveling.
If you wish to achieve the highest possible stats, it is therefore recommended to scroll your gear before leveling the item. Chaos Scroll of Goodness can be crafted using 10 Chaos Scrolls with Cassandra.
WDEF/MDEF/Speed/Jump/Avoid can only increase by a maximum of 1 per item level.
All other stats level a varying amount (minimum 1), with MATK leveling the most, then STR/DEX/INT/LUK, then remaining stats HP/MP/WATK/ACC.
Enforcement Scrolls give you the ability to see what stats will be leveled from level 1 ~ 5 and lets you choose whether you want to keep those stats. Legendary Scrolls can be used to level equipment beyond level 5. It can be obtained from end-game bosses. Tier Scrolls add an extra bonus line at the top of the item, this scroll can be used at any time.
We have fully working Evan class, all skills and entire questline working. Evan can be created by talking to Maple Admin in the first map as a level 1 beginner.
There is also a custom class called Iron Man which is special because it can not trade or join parties, but does have the ability to wear equipment from any job. Iron Man can only be created with a linked level of over 3000 by talking to Maple Admin in the first map as a level 1 beginner.
KOC has custom 4th job skills to make them viable in late game.
All classic PQs are easily accessible through the PQ Room which can be accessed using the portal under the tree in FM.
There is a maximum level gap of 20 levels for all PQs except Amoria PQ and CWKPQ in order to prevent PQ leeching with high-level characters.
Collect PQ Points by completing PQs which can be used to buy various items such as Chaos Scroll, White Scroll, and even a Cash Ring with stats. The First Clear Of The Day per character for each PQ gives double the PQ Points!
Collect the special PQ Items and talk to Spiegelette to get BIS (Best-In-Slot) Eye Accessory items called Shades of Virtuosity and its bigger brother Darker Shades of Virtuosity.
Party EXP sharing formula changed from 60:40 damage:level ratio to 90:10 to make leeching less effective.
Party members must have recently attacked and killed monsters in order to gain EXP from other party members.
Party Bonus EXP has been significantly buffed to 20% per extra party member to encourage party play.
MapleMS was the first ever v83 server to have a widescreen client. You can choose to play in 1280x720 or 800x600 resolution.
