MapleStory Arcane Force

Arcane Force Overview

  • Similarly to Star Force, you will inflict less damage when you have insufficient Arcane Force when you are in Arcane Force maps.
  • Instead of hitting 1’s, you’ll just be doing 10% of your original damage without any Arcane Force at all, and it’ll build up to 100% as you progress with your Arcane Force.
  • For bonuses, the more Arcane Force you receive the more EXTRA damage you’ll be doing in an area (up to 50% final damage worth of extra damage).
  • Arcane Force is gained by equipping your character with Arcane Symbol. Up to 3 Arcane Symbols can be equipped. Arcane Symbol also boosts your job primary stat.
  • While equipped, Arcane Symbols will grow with you as you gain experience. Duplicate Arcane Symbols can be combined into equipped ones to give them experience.
  • When an Arcane Symbol is at 99% growth experience, you can level it up by paying a meso fee (10/20/30 million meso for level 2/3/4).

Arcane Force required for 150% Max Damage

  • 30 AF = 50 AF for bonus
  • 50 AF = 80 AF for bonus
  • 80 AF = 120 AF for bonus
  • 100 AF = 150 AF for bonus
  • 130 AF = 200 AF for bonus
  • 160 AF = 240 AF for bonus
  • 190 AF = 290 AF for bonus
  • 200 AF = 300 AF for bonus
  • 210 AF = 320 AF for bonus
  • 240 AF = 360 AF for bonus

Arcane Force Damage Formula Explanation

Assuming you have 0 Arcane Force, and the map in Arcane River requires 30 Arcane Force, you will deal 10% of your current damage. Every 10 Arcane Force you obtained, you gain 30% damage (90% damage divided by 30 = 3% damage per Arcane Force). You can gain up to 150% damage. For this scenario, if you have 50 Arcane Force instead of 30 Arcane Force, you can inflict max damage of 150% for maps that requires 30 Arcane Force. (50 Arcane Force x 3% damage per Arcane Force + base 10% = 160%, round down to max of 150%)

MapleStory EXP Formula

Stacking EXP

There are 2 types of EXP boost

1. Multiplier on base EXP.
2. FIXED Percentage from base EXP
Note: Base EXP is what the monster originally gives.

EXP Display

1. The first line is the base EXP value in white
2. The second line is the additional EXP from Multipliers in white
3. The rest are from Percentages sources (Pendant, Elven Blessing, Zero Card, ETC) in yellow

EXP Stacking

Different sources of EXP are separated into specific groups. You are able to stack 1 from each group. Having 2 of the same group will either have the higher rate in effect or the latest buff used (usually overwrites any existing buffs of the same group).

  • Group 1:
    • Happy Winter – 1.2x for 60 minutes
    • Enjoyable Winter – 1.5x for 30 minutes
    • Legend Coupon – 1.5x for 30 minutes
    • Rest Coupon – 1.3x for 60 minutes
    • Star Planet Coupon – 2x for 15 to 120 minutes
    • Any Other Coupon – Usually 1.5x or 2x
    • System Event – 1.5x / 2.0x
    • System Event – 3.0x (MapleSEA from 0000 to 0015 on 1st Jan 2013)
  • Group 2: EXP Coupon – 1.2/1.5/2.0/3.0x from CashShop
  • Group 3: Premium Coupon – 20% from Cash Shop, lasts 7 days
  • Group 4: Holy Symbol – 1.5x, duration depends on caster’s buff duration bonuses
  • Group 5: Fairy/Spirit Pendant – Up to 30% Starting from 10% and +10% every hour for staying online and equipped
  • Group 6: EXP Accumulation Potion – 10% for 120 minutes
  • Group 7: Elven Blessing – 10% or 15% (Mercedes Link Skill)
  • Group 8: Zero Character Card – 4%, 6%, 8% or 10%
  • Group 9: Kill Combo – read more here.
  • Group K: All other percentages are usually in their own group


Monster EXP (base EXP): 1,000
Multiplier Types: System 2.0x, Coupon 2.0x, Holy Symbol 1.5x
Percentage Types: Pendant 30%, Elven Blessing 15%, Zero Card 10%

Multiplier = 2 x 2 x 1.5 = 6x (EXP in White: 1,000 x 6 = 6,000)
Percentage = 30 + 15 + 10 = 55% (EXP in Yellow: 1,000 x 55% = 550)

Line 1 (Base): 1,000
Line 2 (Additional): 5,000
Line 3+ (Percentages): 550

  1. IcedCoppi


  2. AceofLemons

    This really needs to update for the new bosses, the level cap increase, and even the Chaos Zakum revamp. No 140 can solo that…

  3. anonymous

    Any idea where would be a good spot for training 70-110 now that MP3 is gone?

  4. Ollie

    Chaos zakum is way stronger and no way can a lvl 140 kill it

  5. Ollie

    Out of your mind chaos zakum 140 lvl, im lvl 169 fafnir gear 160k ish range and can’t deal a hair of damage on chaos zakum

  6. Jan

    Hi, in maplesea NLC has been removed. So we can’t buy ginger ales anymore. Do you have any suggestions on where to buy cost efficient potions for maplesea players?

  7. Ayumilove Post author

    @Jer: Thanks for the notice! I have been waiting these big updates for such a long time. Once MSEA provides the latest game patch for download, then I’ll be able to update the skills as soon as possible 🙂

  8. Darches

    Easy Horntail should be on the daily bossing list. He has 1,017,600,000 HP, but potentially as low as 433,600,000 HP if you hit multiple body parts at once. He gives 4,611,597 XP, which is between Zakum and Hilla. He lacks damage reflect and does little damage.

    There’s no way a level 140 could beat Chaos Zakum…

  9. bry

    I have a 334 thief shoes let me know if you want the screen shot.

  10. KawaiiDesho

    Hey Ayumi, i had a question regarding the EXP accumilation potion you mentioned, i made the ones from alchemy but i dont seem to get the choice to turn them into a 30-70 exp potion

    Maybe the info is outdated ? or prehapse i am doing something wrong.
    I am trying to fill them with my lvl 201 AB.

  11. Kiwi

    which jobs are the best at training in arcane maps???

  12. Hakuae

    For 160, I searched a very long time for encounter with the buddha map but could not find it… How do you get to it?

  13. Ayumilove Post author

    @Hugo Alves: You’re most welcome. Do let me know how it goes for you after trying out the new Ark job 🙂

  14. Hugo Alves

    @Ayumilove: Thank you very much, i’ll try that! I was trying the wind archer, but, i’ll give a chance for ark. Almost friday night here, i’ll try soon 😀
    By the way, i’m a fan, awesome work since 2012. 🙂

  15. Ayumilove Post author

    @Hugo Alves: I highly recommend you to try out Ark. Ark is currently one of the best mobbing and bossing class right now. Training is a breeze with skills that has large AOE attack and high damage.

  16. Hugo Alves

    @Ayumilove could you help me with an opinion? In your opinion, which classes are the best for mobbing after 3rd job? I have Kanna and kinesis, but, I wonder if there’s other good ones.
    Thank you 🙂

  17. Ayumilove Post author

    @Justin: MSEA training spots are not recommended for GMS players due to the monster level is different between these 2 regions (MSEA and GMS). Therefore, the EXP rewarded by the monsters will be lesser than GMS due to monster level being too high or too low.

  18. Justin

    I play in GMS. Are the training spots marked (MSEA) not recommended for GMS players?

  19. LipeBishop

    Ayumi, u can add best spot to lv 100~110 Pianus Boss (GMS) to no-reboot serve …this is serious !! u get 1lv per pianus ch, with link skills u can get more, and is easy to kill.

  20. miguel497

    You should add Commerci questline to the guide. I went from lv. 140 to 146 and a half by just doing the quests, which take less than 20 minutes to complete.

  21. Ayumilove Post author

    @SageDaGawd: If your goal is to maximize EXP, I would go for maps that has high concentration of mobs that provides best EXP ratio rather than focussing on monster element weaknesses. I’ll minimize the damage gap by gearing up starforced equips + potentialed +6% STR and above. The element is just a bonus damage for bossing. Other than that, you can apply element that deals the most damage on the monster that are recommended in this list to simplify the process. You will need to test out each element to see which deals the most damage 🙂 I couldn’t say much a Paladin as I do not main 1 myself though. I focus more on Thief/Pirate type of character that has high amount of mobility and jump attacks.

  22. SageDaGawd

    I’m a returning player, playing as Paladin in the reboot server. Just want to thank you for being a helping hand throughout the years. Hoping that maybe you could give me a rundown on monster weaknesses? I’m a paladin so I can only maximize exp if I know what maps for which elements. Thanks in advanced, I’m looking on the blog but cant seem to find it.

  23. Ayumilove Post author

    @all: Added additional training spots which are the best maps to farm and train in Esfera for Level 230 players and above.

  24. L

    Either the training guide for Singapore Ghost Ship is outdated or it only applies to GMS/KMS. In MSEA, monsters at Singapore Ghost Ship is just around lv 90. Peace ♥

    @Tomer: If you can 1~2 hit KO monsters in a particular training ground compared to others, then its best to train there as you can clear the map fast enough without receiving too much bump damage from monsters. If you clear the map too fast when there is no spawn left after you cycle through, then its time to move on to another map that has more monsters around. Its a vicious cycle of getting to a higher level training ground, upgrading your equips so that you can 1~2 hit KO for fast leveling experiences.

    Forsaken excavation site 190+ (195+ if not funded)
    Scrapyard Skyline 200-210 (slower than VJ but still decent exp until you get enough arcane force)

    Showa Town is now avaliable on GMS, Great place for funded 160+ guys

    Hi, why not add in Afterland for training via theme dungeon?

    @Amit, I really want to say thanks to you and Ayumi, you are the best things that ever happened to me. I love you two.
    As for your question, I personally found Alishan the best place to train on 180-190. The rolling hedgehogs have excellent spawn rate, and they yield excellent exp. However, it gets boring and repetitive, so play some of your favorite music!

    Hey guys,
    Someone have recommendation where to train in level 180-190?
    I found the Adv. Knight E slower then what i thought it will be. They Burning area are low (10 to 30%.

    Where are you training? Can you share the location or any tips?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hey i have an amazing Training are from levels 100-140 i managed to level from 100-110 in about 27 minutes and 110-120 in about 29 minutes, basically a level up every 3 minutes with only a 10% exp buff, reply to this if you’d like to know more about it and add it to your guide, its pretty amazing.

    Neglected Garden 180-200 [Press UP on the throne in Root Abyss] (Requires Alicia to be freed)

    Weak enemies offer 12000/18000 exp per kill. Flat terrain, and very easy to gain combo orbs. With 120 Aran link combo orbs award (Blue 50-300) 1,221,337; (Purple 350-700) 1,709,872; (Red 750-1995) 2,442,675, (Gold 2000+) 2,842,675
