What are Starforce Maps?

As of GMS v.157 Shinning Star Update, MapleStory has recently converted some of the regular maps as Starforce Maps. How to identify one? The map that has a glowing red portal leading to the next map is a Starforce map. Monsters in Starforce maps rewards 3 times more EXP. If you do not have the required amount of stars as specified by the Starforce map, you will only deal 1 damage to the monster residing inside. Where to get these stars? You will need to enhance your equipment (e.g. hat, overall, glove, cape, weapon, face accessory, belt, earrings, etc) using the Star Force Enhancement System that consumes “Spell Traces” which are dropped from defeated enemies. The higher the equipment level, the more “Spell Traces” they cost. Personally, I enhanced Level 20, 60 and 100 equips (40 levels gap is sufficient). Having 10 equips with 5~7 stars each easily provides 50~70 stars which meets the requirement for Star Force maps.

Part-Time Job: Resting

Set your character you are leveling using this part-time job (Resting) to gain 1.3X EXP boost coupon. This coupon does not stack with other EXP coupon. This is quite helpful when you are leveling multiple characters.

Training Tips

Don’t forget that you can press “W” in MapleStory to open up the World Map, and type in the monster name or the map name to find the exact location from where you are. Also, the Maple guide provided in-game option in MapleStory isn’t too bad, you are free to follow that guide (auto-teleports you to that map) or follow mine here for where I’ll be trainining. With that all covered, lets begin the training guide. In addition, take note where the monsters resides and how far they live from your job hometown. Example: monsters in Pantheon are for Kaiser/Angelic Buster whereas monsters in Edelstein are for Resistance jobs as its closer to their hometown, but you have the option to visit Victoria Island or other maps based on the information below if you don’t mind the extra effort of migrating there for training.
