I just got done polishing my Non-Leech guide. Now I have the guide with the places to level, and the other guide with the places to get equipment!

About Me
I'm just a fellow Mapler whose been around since early Sept of 2005. I know all about the hardships of pre Big Bang and how it beat you in to how the game works. I've played around with a lot of classes throughout the years, but I'd have to say my favourite class to play as is Hero of the Explorer Warrior tree.
  • Repurpose Item Makers

    Due to one of the most recent patches cleaning up drop pools, I'd like to propose repurposing the Item Makers so that they can make the retro maple armour like: Metal Coif, Steel Helmet, Steel Full Helm, Steel Football Helmet, Iron Viking Helm, Steel Sharp Helm, Orihalcon Burgernet, Great Brown Helmet, Mithril Nordic Helm, Blue Duke, Dark Dome, Old Bronze Nordic Helm, Bronze Planet, Blue Sky, Blue Dragon, Silver Fitted Mail, Black Crusader Overall, Silver Trigger, Steel Missel, Yellow Briggon, Adamantium Knuckle, Mirthil Brist, Purple Carzen Boots, Golden Pride, Red Savata, Brown Jack Boots, and lots more.
  • Afterlands Guide - The Fast Way

    As you might've guessed, this guide is for people who want to be in and out of Afterlands as quickly as possible. I've focused on covering only the bare minimum so that everyone can go through the world with the right list in mind. This guide is Perm Starter friendly (Beginner/Noblesse/Legend/Citizen/???).


    Level 75+(received in the light bulb to the left of the screen in-game)
    Assign your Harvest/NPC Chat button to Space Bar to be able to skip through the brown text boxes.

    Beginning the Questline

    When in Ellinia, walk off the ledge to the left and die.
    (hold Space Bar)
    When in Perion, rush up the mountain to the old man.
    (hold Space Bar)

    (hold Space Bar)

    Hold the Down key and hold down regular Attack key to attack bush.
    (hold Space Bar)

    Land of Warriors

    Forced fight: Exit through the portal. It's not necessary to fight all 3 waves and it is actually faster to proceed through the quest line because if you completed the waves, you would have to smack the chain to lower the sun.
    (Perm Starter Option: Leave through portal (ain't no one got time to wait 30 minutes for a forced fight to finish).)
    Kill Fashionable Balrog in monster map 2. Collect the key from the balrog. Do not say to use the key. Collect 30 shoulder pieces from balrogs(used later).
    New day: go to second monster map and defeat 25 Mushroom Marauders and Battle Balrogs quickly to win control over the day.
    (Perm Starter Option: Defeat 24 Mushroom Murauders and 25 Battle Balrogs. Farm Battle Balrogs for 30 Battle Balrog's Armor. Reset the map and prepare to deal a lot of damage to the last Mushroom Marauder as quickly as possible. If you do not win control over the day, you will have to wait for the RNG to roll 2 loot missions. The first one is for you to loot up to 29 items. The items do not disappear if you quit out of completing the mission. Cycle through the lands until there is another loot mission for you to get the last remaining item. If you're quick enough, this will guarentee you winning control over the day).
