Link & Legion System

All Jobs possess Link Skills which can be shared with other characters on the same account and server, and a few of them are particularly useful for accelerating your leveling speed.

MapleStory Link Skills and Zero Legion

  • Link Skill - Elven Blessing
    • Level-up your Mercedes character to transfer Link Skills! You can transfer Link Skills to other characters that will allow you to earn an additional 10% EXP once you reach Lv. 70, and an additional 15% EXP once you reach Lv. 120.
  • Link Skill - Combo Kill Blessing
    • Level-up your Aran character to transfer Link Skills! You can transfer Link Skills to other characters that will allow you to permanently earn an additional 400% Combo Kill Orb EXP once you reach Lv. 70, and an additional 650% EXP once you reach Lv. 120.
  • Link Skill - Rune Persistence
    • Level-up your Evan character to transfer Link Skills! You can transfer Link Skills to other characters that will increase Rune duration by 30% once you reach Lv. 70, and by 50% once you reach Lv. 120.
  • Attacker Effect - Zero
    • Place Zero characters as a Legion member to receive an [Attacker Effect]. When you reach Lv. 130, 160, 180, 200, and 250, you'll gain an additional 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12% EXP respectively.

Field Hunting

Try to look for hunting zones that have turned into Burning Fields because they have been untouched by Maplers for a long time. You can enjoy between 10% and 100% additional EXP by battling there!

MapleStory Burning Fields

* Only locations with Lv. 100+ monsters can become Burning Fields.

Runes

Mysterious stones called Runes may unexpectedly appear in hunting grounds! Activate these Runes to enjoy a 2x EXP bonus and other special effects that last for 2 minutes. Learn more in the Rune Maple Guide!

TIPS:

  • Rune buff durations will increase if you transfer Evan's Link Skills.

Combo Orbs

You can build combos with the more monsters you eliminate without taking a break. Each time you reach 50 combos, a Combo Orb will be created, which you can claim for bonus EXP, and the higher your combos, the more EXP you can earn.

MapleStory Combo Orbs

TIPS:

  • Even if you exceed 2,000 combos, you can also earn Golden Combo Orbs for as long as you keep the combo going.
  • Transferring Aran's Link Skills will increase the amount of EXP earned from Combo Orbs.

Party Buff

Party buff, a boon that's unique to party play! Form a party with a character with the Explorer job "Bishop" and have them use their Holy Symbol ability to buff you with an additional 50% EXP.

TIPS:

  • Additional EXP can also be earned while using Night Lord's "Showdown", Demon Slayer's "Demon Cry", and Pirate's "Roll of the Dice" skills.
