    V.6.3 Should be correct to Update #61
    [​IMG]
    Looking for some adventure? Levelling up at unusual maps and going to every continent in Maple World? Then this medal will send you all over the place to kill practically every monster in the game. After a series of drop rate buffs, this medal is much less painful to acquire so have fun questing!
    Hello, I'm Inusama and this guide should help you achieve 800 quests and obtain the exclusive Quest Specialist Medal. There are quite a few level-locked and missable quests you might be unaware of!

    As of update #60, the medal was upgraded from +3 all to +5 all.


    All the quests have been organised by starting level.

    You can still get the medal if you miss every hidden/missable quest.


    Tips:
    • To be able to accept the Quest Specialist Title Challenge from Dalair you must be LVL30+ and have no other medal challenges in progress! To open the medal window press ;
    • The MapleStory database Hidden Street has a guide for virtually every quest in the game, just google the quest name if you need help!
    • Accept quests in Showa and start Lost! in NLC before going to Ludi. A lot of them require drops from monsters in Ludibrium or Omega
    • Every separate quest in a questline counts as 1 quest completed
    • Event quests do count towards the total
    • Medal quests do not count towards the total
    • Arwen's Glass Shoe, Blackbull's Deed to the Land, Flaming Feather and Ancient Scroll drop. But they are very rare
    • A number of the Magatia quests require wearing the Alcadno/Zenumist Cape to trigger
    • Do not drop quest items that have been acquired from quests that only appear after dropping the original. They may not have replacements but you can try forfeiting the quest.
    • Pheremone Perfume. If you try to complete this quest with a mount from old source, you will get stuck here. Drop your old source mount to successfully finish the questline
    • Tatamo's Suggestion. Chief Tatamo will not accept the Secret Spell Scroll if you obtain one of the boss drops (Hero's Star etc.)
    • Take the opportunity to save important maps to your teleport rock lists!
    Broken/Bugged Quests
    Victoria Island
    • Help Me Find My Glasses - The glasses stay in your inventory when completed
    Amoria
    • Cupid's Courier - Warrior (But might happen to all her quests. She has separate quests for the other classes including beginner but not pirate.) - Even when completed this quest stays in the available quests section.
    Orbis
    • The Chaos Behind Alfonse Green and the Nependeath Juice - If you drop the Lunar Wristband, there is no way to obtain another.
    NLC
    • Cleaning Up the Streets (and probably Cleaning Up the Streets - Continued) - Unavailable to beginners.
    Thailand
    • Floating Market Protection Squad II - Lith's Key doesn't seem to drop.
    • Entering the Floating Market Protection Squad - If you drop the Defense Squad Enrollment Permission there is no way to obtain another.
    Christmas Event
    • Little Suzy's X-mas Dilemma - If you drop Little Suzy's Wishlist 1 there is no way to obtain another.

    Impossible to complete quests
    Magatia
    Temple of Time
    • Beyond the ruins, requires Pink Bean

    Hidden Quests
    These quests do not appear under "available" in your quest window at all or until specific items are in your inventory.
    Level Restricted Quests (Missable!)
    Once you are above a certain level, these quests will become permanently unavailable.
    Replacement Item Quests (Missable!)
    Some quests generate an additional quest if you drop an important quest item! Better to avoid dropping quest items not mentioned on this list as there may be no replacement available and only GMs will be able to help you.
    Repeatable quests that count towards your completed (only once)
    These should increase your 'quests completed' number when you do them the second time. Doing them a third time will not increase the total.

    Depending the class you play (mages) the ZJQ alternative - 1500 mateon and 2300 cursed dolls arent that bad.
    All of Krex pre quest is repeatable.

    Here is a walktrough for the ZJQ without jumping. (made by me)
    To start the Alternative ZJQ you need to be lvl 50 and have stage 1 completed as this questline is made to ONLY pass stage 2 the jump quest


    Go to Adonis at Watch out for Icy Path 1 (1 map right of elnath)
    Pay adonis 1 million mesos (this opens up a quest at the quest tab calles The long road)
    Now we need to see Chumji at Korean folk town

    From Adonis in El Nath you walk back to the tower 2 maps left of your current position.
    At the tower go down to aqua road.
    Use the dolpin taxi to go to the sharp unknown.
    Welcome to Korean Folk Town

    Arriving in KFT Chumji is located top left and tells you he will help if you can bring him the blue light villagers see at night.
    This refers to the mob called Blin(lvl 60). These are located to the far right of the KFT region in a map called: Top of black mountain.
    You need to collect 200 Blin's flame they only drop from the morphed blin (Blin's second form). Rough estimate 1 drop per 50 kills
    Blin's flame is a quest item and therefor untradeable

    After delivering the blin's flames to Chumji we need to go pay Chun Ji of Victoria Island a visit.
    Chun Ji is located on Kerning City Construction Site.
    This is 1 map left of Kerning City.
    Tells you a story about the ancient times and about dragon fire. Only 2 monsters currently have this, Red Drake in perion and the Behemoth deep down in the sanctuary (Jr.Balrog)

    After this rattle of dragon monsters Chun Ji sends us to the Rememberer in Sleepywood.

    The Rememberer tells us that Chun Ji lost a part of his memory and we need to find a "special item" to boost Chun Ji's memory. The item is dropped by "Fire-breathing drakes up in the Rocky Mountains"
    On to Perion it is than to slay some Red Drakes (lvl60).

    Red drakes spawn in a map near perion.
    Take the bottom right portal out of perion.
    Stay top side and move left till you see a wooden door.
    This leads to a hidden map with copper drakes.
    Go trough the top portal to get to the hiddenmap Dangerous Valley 2. This is were Red Drakes spawn.

    After killing some Red Drakes a etc. ring will drop called the "Dragonfire Ring"
    Bring this ring to Chun Ji for him to remember how to grow the "Breath of Lava"

    To create the Breath of Lava you need a "Hardend Crystal Flask" a "Inert Mysterious Substance" and a Flaming Feather.
    Porter of Omega sector knows how to make the Hardend Crystal Flask.
    Carson of the Zenumist Society knows how to make the Inert Mysterious Substance.
    The Flaming Feather is dropped by Selkie Jr. at Mysterious Path 3

    To obtain a Flaming Feather you need to travel to Singapore (CBD)
    This is possible by talking to Irene. Located on the right side of Kerning City.
    Arriving at CBD you need to walk 3 maps to the right untill you hit Fire Extinguisher monsters. In this map you take a top right to enter Quay Boat Town.
    Again we walk 3 maps to the right to reach Mysterious Path 3.

    From Orbis you take the boat to Ludibrium.
    Go 2 maps left to the EOS tower (LPQ tower)
    Jump all the way down (suggest to buy EOS rock scrolls)

    Porter is located in the Command Center next to Dr. Kim
    To create the Hardend Crystal Flask he sends you out to get:
    Dropped by MT-09
    Forged by Pi 1 map left of Ludibrium with 1Bronze Plate, 1Steel Plate, 1Mithril Plate, 1Adamantium Plate, 1Silver Plate, 1Orihalcon Plate, 1Gold Plate and 10,000 mesos.
    Dropped by Chief Gray
    Forged by Pi 1 map left of Ludibrium with 1Garnet, 1Amethyst, 1Aquamarine, 1Emerald, 1Opal, 1Sapphire, 1Topaz, 1Diamond, 1Black Crystal and 15,000 mesos.
    500 Plateon's helmets
    These new items drop from Ice Drakes, the droprate is very low.
    From ellinia you take the black cab to Ant Tunnel Park.
    Keep going deeper into the dungeon untill you hit the map Dungeon: Another Entrance.
    Take the top portal and keep going deeper untill the map Dungeon: Drake Area / Cold Cradle / Drakes Nest. All these 3 maps spawn Ise Drakes.
    At Henesys just right of the cab is a tree. Climb that to enter a hidden map. These maps hold the most Iron Hogs in the whole server.

    From Orbis you take the Ariant genie boat.
    From Ariant town you take the 3rd portal on the right to find the camel cab.

    Carson is located on the far left inside a building.
    To create the Inert Substance he sends you out to get:
    From Zipangua (shrine) walk all the way right to find Showa town.
    In showa is a bathhouse (Gachapon location). Inside on the right side of the mirrors is a hidden portal taking you to a map with all firebombs.
    100 Mateon tentactes
    200 Red essence
    From ellinia you take the black cab to Ant Tunnel Park.
    Keep going deeper into the dungeon untill you hit the map Dungeon: Drake Hunting Ground
    500,000 mesos

    After collecting this huge ammount of items for Porter and Carson you need to head back to Chun Ji at Kerning City.
    He will give you a Poweless Breath of Lava. And the words: Go see Sea Witch Carta in Aqua.

    From ellinia you take the boat to orbis, from there the crane to Mu Lung.
    From Mu Lung you take the crane to Herb Town.
    The map left of Herb Town is the Dolphin taxi to Aqua.

    Sea Witch Carta is located in a hidden cave down Aqua road.
    To get to her you go 1 map left of Aqua town. Use the left bottom "hidden" portal to get to Deep Sea Gorge 1.
    Halfway down the map on the left side is a black cave entrance. Enter this to find Sea Witch Carta.

    Sea Witch Carta tells you that she can help power the Poweless Breath of Lava.
    She only requires a few crystals.
    1 Dark Crystal
    1 Power Crystal
    1 Wisdom Crystal
    1 Dex Crystal
    1 Luk Crystal
    1 million mesos

    These crystals can be forged by Vogen in Perion.

    After delivering these items to Carta she gives you The Breath of Lava.

    Congrats for finishing the Zakum Jump Quest without jumping!


    Time spend on the total quest 15 hours.
    Char used lvl 145 Hero

    These four, right:
    Savior of Ulu City
    Ulu City Energy Thieves
    Pushing Forward in Ulu City
    Entering Ulu City

    I have no idea i would assume so since it are all seperated standing quests with seperated rewards.

    For the Alternative ZJQ ( i requested for this to be implanted since GMS had a unknown alternative also ) i ofcourse cant talk badly of since i actually NEED this route due to a form of colorblindness (see https://mapleroyals.com/forum/threads/zakum-jump-quest.100900/ )
    But some parts are to hard to kinda do it for the quest specialist without buying all buyable items. (200 Dragonglass shards is a hell)

    Yeah that list is only for quests that when repeated, increase your total completed number. I'm pretty sure they don't count the second time.

    tl;dr
    First time = +1 quest completed
    Second time (repeat) = +1 quest completed
    Third+ time (repeat) = +0 completed
    Some repeatable quests do this, some don't. I'm interested in listing the ones that do.

    Yup, dropping the crumpled piece of paper generates a new missable quest.

    Yes, I noticed this too! On my dark knight I was able to start the quest but now you can't even start it, no idea why. You can't spawn the goblins either way so it's impossible to complete.

    This one is working. But don't equip the oxygen. Just drop the oxygen, then the quest will show up.

    Once you get to a certain level/quests completed, the medal npc will have 'Quest Specialist' available. You can only have 1 medal challenge so if you've accepted one of the others, forfeit it.

    No wonder! I was killing nightmares AND vodoos, I must have not killed enough. I have the utmost admiration for anyone with the quest specialist badge. How do you even receive the challenge? The badge man doesn't have it as an option for me.

    Awesome guide, this will be super useful!

    Some of the kill quests (kill 999 in particular) are level locked. Can't do them past a certain level.
