If you mean to train to 200 forest of excavation 2 I believe is one map I'm aware of as a good training spot but it might be popular depending on server?
@Kuraisenshi Hey, tyvm! That's exactly what I was after. My server (Elysium?) is pretty quiet so probably won't be a problem. Not sure where that map is but I'll look around. Thanks for the tip.
@mrbasil future perion area. its one of the most popular maps sub level 200. not sure about elysium but in bera i always just trained in surrounding maps - they get the job done just fine and i never had to worry about ks'ers and stuff
@lipperman nice, thanks!! Where you train these days?
@mrbasil i've been finding low-key maps in arcana lately xD ... i prefer finding overlooked maps for some solitude and more burning exp . if theres one thing i hate, its competing with others for an open map lol plus, it feels lame doing the same cookie cutter training maps that everyone else does for progression. i know i'm not the most efficient in training, so it gives me more freedom to explore
@lipperman sounds like that's perhaps a bit new from the MS I remember, where everyone was pretty hardcore about THE maps to train on? Still enjoying though the game though, it sounds like?
@mrbasil oh yea, i'm having a blast, haha - so much more to do now in game compared to the old days. everyone pretty much is still hardcore about the main maps to train on. what i'm saying is i don't care about the hyped up maps so i just find other ones that work just fine for me. when i came back from a break this year i would just pull up the world map and hover over spots that had monsters near my lvl range. .. theres also the in game "maple guide" that gives u recommendations and can even teleport u to the map
@lipperman like what kinds of other things do you do besides grind?
@mrbasil i personally mostly grind lol [on my main and on legion characters] - the game is inherently very grindy, but i like it. i am starting to think about starting tower of oz runs. it looks like a somewhat fun alternative to the normal grind of things xD
@lipperman oh tower of oz is still a thing eh? Are there many party-based activities you partake in?
@mrbasil guild party quest is still a thing in the current maplestory. Though some people do boss runs as a guild
@Kuraisenshi oh cool, what do you yourself get up to most often?
@mrbasil I normally try to do gp cap with a guildie. Normally I would be trying to train or just do some solo bossing for the bosses I know I can clear.
@Kuraisenshi what level is your main?
@mrbasil a level 245 hero in bera
@Kuraisenshi how many hours do you estimate it'll take to get to 255? Or is the cap 250?
@mrbasil the new cap lvl is 300 at one point the lvl cap was 275 before neos patch. I have no idea on the estimate since I don't plan on getting there anytime soon since I can't play every day as much anymore. Since when I have classes to attend=reduces the time could use to train.
@Kuraisenshi 300!? Wow, at what point do you max out your 5th job skills? Are there many who've hit 300? I wonder what's left to do at that point?
@mrbasil Fifth job skills are maxed different then levelling. Requires nodestones https://maplestory.fandom.com/wiki/V_Matrix . The max lvl of a boost skills is lvl60 while class ones have a max lvl of 30 (lvl25 max but then you gain one v matrix point to enhance a v matrix slot that makes it add +1 lvl to it) . There aren't any people who are lvl300 yet the first place atm on the race to 300 is a lvl279 reboot luminous. After that I'm guessing players could try to 25 star there equipment is what i can guess apart from wait for new boss content.
@Kuraisenshi that sounds quite complicated! Why's it taking so long to get to 300? Do you need to get something other than EXP to level up?
@mrbasil well if your between 200-250 the cash shop 2x exp coupon that still takes affect but after 250 the cash shop exp doesn't give you any more bonus exp so your exp rate could drop. Exp is still the same thing to lvl apart for some events there are lvl up potions but only thing is looking at the lvl limit of those.
@Kuraisenshi Is there anything other than the 300 number and a bit of stats that's keeping people going to 300? Do you get some master skill or something at the end of it or just pride and cool points?
@mrbasil I'm not sure whats keeping people motivated to do the race to lvl300. Though cool points might be one thing and pride however the only thing is if they don't get burned out or their life schedule
@Kuraisenshi yeah, that's the big thing - losing that real life / game balance.
