After you have chosen your preferred character class when you are starting out to play Maple Story, you are now ready to start leveling your character. And your new Maple Story character is now off to Maple Island as a Beginner.
On Maple Island, you will start off as a beginner class and level your way up to level 10 where you can then advance to the class that you actually want to be.
There are several key strategies that you want to focus on while you are on Maple Island which will help you to become an all-around Mapler in the game. They are:
You need to start building your stats towards your character class (e. g. warrior, magician etc) that you are planning to become once you leave Maple Island.
If this is your first Maple Story character, then you need to complete the quests on Maple Island to get a feel of how the game works and how to play properly.
You want to start to collect items such as Blue Snail Shells and Mushrooms so that you can earn some Mesos for yourself to purchase a cab ride to leave Maple Island.
When you first login to Maple Story, you will be given a view of the key configurations for the game. This is the default setup for playing MapleStory although you can change it at any time by hitting the Key config shortcut button on your screen. You will then be able to setup every one of your skills and all the keys to any configuration that you would like to have.
Once you have completed your keyboard setup, you will then have to talk to Sera. She will ask you if you would like to enter the Tutorial Zone. If this is your first time playiny, please do so. If you are a Maple Story veteran, it is always fun to see your character being dressed up in a ridiculous leaf costume or whatever kind of costume he is in.
Once you have finished with the bazaar tutorial, you will be transported to Maple Island.
On Maple Island, you will want to complete some quests and level up your character to level 10.
If you look at the map, all you have to do is to walk from the left to the right through the 5 zones and you will end up at a location called Perry where you can then take a ship off Maple Island.
Before you leave Maple Island, you will want to familiarize yourself with the controls of the game and complete a few quests that will help you reach level 10. This will prepare you to take on challenges on Victoria Island!
Donald Lim is a Maple Story game enthusiast. Along the process of learning how to play Maple Story better, he chanced upon the web site of a professional Mapler, John. He managed to convince John to write several Maple Story Guides for new and seasoned Maplers, and so http://www.FreeMapleStoryGuide.com was created.
