• Experience curve for leveling is less steep after Big Bang than it was previously. This means from Level.10 on, the amount of experience points needed to progress from one level to the next is lower, making leveling up faster.

Stats System

• The formulas for damage, defense, accuracy, and avoidability have all been overhauled extensively.
• Accuracy is decreased significantly if you try to attempt monsters with level higher than you which might prove to be too difficult to handle.


• Several changes have been made to maps throughout Maple World, with the most extensive change being a completely rearranged Victoria Island.
• Towns have new layouts, and many monster maps have been removed or replaced.
• Hovering the mouse pointer over a map will reveal the NPCs and monster in that map. The level range of the monster is also displayed.
• Foot travel to the Victoria Island towns has been expedited with the addition of Six Path Crossway to the center of the island as a hub.
• The entrance to Sleepywood and the airships to Orbis, Ereve and Singapore have been moved to Six Path Crossway as well.
• All Party Quests, Zipangu, New Leaf City and a brand new Event Map can be access via Mirror of Dimension, Versatile Portal!

Party Quests

• The starting levels for some party quests have been changed, and the upper level restriction for most party quests has been removed.
• Easy access to most Party Quests via Mirror of Dimension!
• Many party quests that weren’t previously in the Party Search menu have been added to it.
• Additional Party Quest tab is added into Quest Info!
• Reward modification has been made to some of the party quests.

Normal Quests

• Quest requirements have been adjusted in response to the changes in maps and in monster levels.
• Quests that are now for a different level than before have had their rewards adjusted accordingly.
• The hunting and/or collecting requirements for the completion of many quests have been lowered for faster quest completion.
• The experience rewarded for many quests that are still for the same level has been increased.


• Most monsters throughout Maple World have had adjustments made to their levels, to varying degrees.
• The stats of monsters—as well as the experience they give, the amount of mesos they drop, and the level of the equipment they drop—have been adjusted accordingly.
• The levels of monsters have been specifically adjusted and consolidated to one area in order to prevent an excessive need for travel throughout Maple World for quests of certain level.
• Some monster maps are now restricted by level to help prevent players from wandering into areas that are beyond their level range.


• Skills for all jobs and classes have been revamp by replacing useful new skills to replace unpopular skills to enhance your mapling experience.
• If you had Skill Points assigned to a skill that has been removed, those points will be returned to your SP pool.
• A warning message will appear when you assign Skill Points obtained from lower tier job advancement into higher tier, to prevent you from accidentally assigning too many skill points to the wrong skill tier.

Hooray! Fishing Maps are now upgraded to provide a better fishing experience for all!

Gear up with either Penguin Fishing Assistant/Kitty Fishing Assistant and with adequate supply of Fishing Bait Can, you can start bouncing off to Free Market to enter your choice of Fishing Lagoon map via the rainbow fish located at the far right of the Free Market.


What are your choices for the Fishing Lagoon maps? There are 3 of them, Universe Fishing Lagoon, Fantasy Fishing Lagoon and Fairy Fishing Lagoon. All fishing lagoon maps shares the same rewards, choice of map is really up to your personal preference of fishing experience.


Even though the Fishing Assistant is there to assist you in your fishing, your presence in-game is required to make your assistant feel close to you.

If you are missing from the Fishing Assistant for a period of time, your Fishing Assistant will pack up and leave home to rest.

So, stay in-game with your Fishing Assistant during fishing. You do not have to be in the fishing lagoon, just stay in-game and your assistant will be happy to serve you!


How to keep track of my fishing rewards? Check out your fishing rewards from Fishing Manager (Madrick) or your Fishing Assistant and choose to collect your catch when you are free!
Works almost like a Shop Permit!


To know the important points for a pleasant fishing experience, please speak to Madrick or refer to his below speech. Follow his guide carefully because we know you will not want your fishing rewards to go missing!
