MapleStory Best NPC Quests for Leveling Up

These NPC (Non-Playable Character) quests is an alternative way to gain large sum of EXP (Experience Points) without having to grind hours on monsters. Some quests boost character attributes (Charm, Intellect, Empathy, Fame, etc) and reward items (weapon, armor, accessory, consumeable, etc). The best way to get most out of NPC Quest rewards especially for the EXP is to complete it while your level is within the recommended NPC Quest level. The most common NPC Quests are listed below.

[TIPS] To find the monster location, open the World Map (press W) and type the monster name in the search window textbox and press ENTER or click SEARCH. It will list the monster name based on your search keyword. The monster location will be highlighted with glowing dots on the map. Hover your mouse over it to view its location. You can click on it to set your target destination and click ENABLE NAVIGATION. This will pop up a red arrow above your character which will help direct you to the path to get there by walking.
