All jobs share the same NX storage. You no longer need separate NX for your Aran & Cygnuses! Including Pets!

Monster Card Bonus

  1. For every 10 Monster Cards you collect, you will gain +1 all stats. Note that you can only collect a total of 5 cards per monster/boss.
  2. Every monster card that drops in StoryMS counts as 2, making it easier to farm them! (Technically only need to loot 3 cards per monster/boss)
  3. You can check your progress by typing @bonus in-game or opening your monster book ( Default Key: ‘B’ )

Quest Bonus

Your Bonus Stats in @bonus will update once you relog.

 

These sweet bonuses in stats makes it so you don’t need to add secondary stats on any characters! 

Put Ability Points into MAIN STAT ONLY!

As you guys see, I put 0 points into Dex on my Aran but still have 1991 Dex!

Item Leveling

HP Washing Optional

White Scrolls & Chaos Scrolls

Unwelcome Guest & VIP Weapons

Remember back in the day when aliens invaded GMS? Scratch the part where you had to PQ in a cube to get these items! You can craft your Unwelcome Guest weapons and upgrade them using the maker skill. Recipes are easy except for the VIP one.

VIP weapons in StoryMS are custom. All warrior VIP weapons have been edited to have faster attack speed rather than ‘slow’. They also require 100 fame to equip.

Here’s a guide to Quests for Fame

StoryMS Quests for Fame

No Magic Damage Cap

Unlike other servers, magic damage does not have a limit in StoryMS. Mages here are very strong towards late gaming, making them essential for certain bosses and mob training. A full linked stat mage can kill zakum’s arms & horntail body within minutes. Mage mains welcome! :CBCheer:

Blizzard / Meteor can hit 12m lines!

No Speed Cap

For all you speed demons! StoryMS does not have a speed cap! It’s quite crazy how fast you can get with a lot of speed equipment! Stack your speed items and become the fastest in StoryMS!

Over 2000 post V83 NX items!

Check the Cash Shop in game! You will see thousands of NX choices including ones from newer maplestory versions! Look at those pets! They’re super cuties :nyanlove~1:

Plenty of Non-Donor NX equips too! Don’t worry!

Instant Boat Ride

For all you non-donors!

All boat rides in StoryMS have the option to instant travel. You still need tickets though!

Unique Voting System

Every vote will give your StoryMS account 8,000 NX to spend in the cash shop! If you vote again within 24 hours, you will earn another 8,000 NX + 200 NX bonus! You can repeat this voting streak in a row up to 10,000 NX.

You can vote on our website or click StoryMS Voting

Make sure you enter your USERNAME not character name for when you try to vote.

You do not need to be logged into our website to vote.

You do not need to be logged out of the game to vote (or donate).

Custom NPCs

StoryMS has its own custom NPCs. Let’s take a look into them!

Inkwell (Free Market)

Cody in FM will exchange 1B mesos into a Golden Maple Leaf, or a Golden Maple Leaf back into 1B Mesos. This helps for trading late game items and equips that cost more than max mesos. GMLs are tradeable, droppable, and storable. DO NOT try to sell this item to a NPC other than Cody, as Cody is the only one who can exchange GML’s back to Mesos.

If you sell your GML to other NPC’s, you will lose your GML and there won’t be a refund of any kind.

Stirgeman located in FM will exchange VP (Vote Points) for items! You can obtain Vote Points by voting daily! 1 vote = 1 VP

EXP Distribution & Leeching

EXP distribution is similar to how it was in GMS v83.

If you are less than or higher than 5 levels under the mob: you will get EXP.

If you are more than 5 levels under the mob, but can deal 1 damage to the mob: you will get EXP.

Keep in mind low level leech is not viable/too slow in StoryMS. The best way to leech is through boss runs such as Zakum & Horntail. You can start leeching Normal Zakum at level 50 as long as you can hit the arms for 1 damage.

Marriage

StoryMS has working marriage for all its wedding tickets! Custom drops at bonus map and a chance to obtain Naricain’s Demon Elixir & Onyx Apples in bundles of 10 for the Bride & Groom upon opening their chests!

Marriage will make Amoria PQ available!

Same Sex Marriage is Available ♡

*Make sure you dress in the formal Amoria outfit (available in Amoria’s shop all the way to the left) before you start the wedding!

**Make sure UNEQUIP ALL NX ITEMS before/during the wedding. This includes NX rings, Face accessory, any item purchased from the Cash Shop. NX items will cause your wedding to bug.

***Make sure to submit your vows before the timer runs out! If you don’t you wont be married!!

Donating

You can donate to StoryMS through our website. Donations will give characters VIP status which allows unique commands to be used in-game. It also gives characters access to otherwise restricted maps and NPCs, NX depending on the amount donated, and a VIP tag for your Discord name in our Discord server!

Donor Commands

@buffme

This command will buff your character with these spells.

Haste, Holy Symbol, Hyper Body, Bless, Echo of Hero

Constantly typing @buffme can get annoying and tiring

heres a tip!

Open your skills tab -> go to macro -> drag one buffing skill -> type @buffme and tick *shout skill name, OK -> Bind Macro Skill

@whodrops -item name-

This command will allow you to search who drops a certain item. All you have to do is type:

example: @whodrops black crystal ore

@whatdropsfrom -mob name-

This command allows you to check the drop list & drop rate of items from a mob or boss.

Example: @whatdropsfrom zakum

@goto -town name-

This command allows you to fast travel to other towns/locations. If you just type @goto you will be able to see a list of maps that are available for fast travel.

Note that warping to Horntail’s Cave (@goto horntail) will save you from doing HT prequests to enter the expedition itself.

You can donate by pressing here: Donate Here

Take a careful look at the conditions on which you agree to donate; specifically the ones marked in red below.

Make sure you enter your CHARACTER NAME here

StoryMS currently only accepts donations made through Paypal on a verified account. You will be able to donate through current Paypal balance or linked debit card/credit card.

Boss Expeditions

Bossing is key when playing nostalgic private servers. StoryMS expedition system allows you to re-enter if you DC or die as long as someone is still inside the expedition; otherwise the expedition will end.

Balrog (Lv 50 - 255)

This is technically a ‘PQ’ but it is still a boss! Rewards include Lv 58 Bain Weapons with balrog effect, Balrog’s version of weapons like Hellslayer, Kage, and Balrog Shoes. It also drops Balrog scrolls that you can use on your Balrog shoes!

Inside Balrog’s cave, you can kill its summons: Jr. Balrog & Crimson Balrog. These two drop stacks of 1-3 10% scrolls such as bows, one handed sword, OA dex, and others.

It also has a 50% chance of dropping CS per run!

*Keep in mind Balrog PQ only allows skills up to 2nd job!

Unless you’re an Aran (can use full swing) :Snailf3:

*Balrog PQ can be reached by doing @goto balrogpq if you are VIP

Scarlion | Targa (Lv 100 - 255)

If you make it alive after killing both of them you can exit through the NPC to receive your rewards!
Some of these rewards include: Sword Earrings, Spirit Herbs, Primal Brew.

Additionally, they drop Scarlion’s STR/DEX hat & Targa’s INT/LUK hat and some skill book lv 10 for 4th job (ACA, AR, TT, AC)

Zakum (Lv 50-255)

oh god

Good old nostalgic Zakum. This expedition requires you to do Zakum Pre Quest (3 stages).

First, go to El Nath and speak with your 3rd Job Instructor and get permission for Zakum. Then @goto zakum (VIP) and speak with Adobis.

Stage 1: Zakum PQ

Press for Bigger Picture

In StoryMS all keys required in Stage 1 are fixed. This means every run, they will be in the same location! Once you gather all the keys (7 keys), drop them on top of the big chest. It will give you an item. Now walk back and let your party leader talk to the NPC to receive your reward!

Stage 2: Zakum Jump Quest (Part 1 & 2)

The good old Zakum Jump Quest..

Once you complete both parts, you will receive your reward!

Stage 3: 30 Golden Zombie Tooth

Trust me, this part isn’t too bad. Go to El Nath: Dead Mine II and kill Miner Zombies! They drop them often so don’t worry!

After collecting 30 teeth, go back to the NPC at Zakum and turn in your quest!

Congrats! You’re ready for Zakum! :AYAYAsmile: 

Zakum drops the classic Zakum Helmet, this item is one-of-a-kind meaning you can only carry one on yourself. It also drops skill books Lv 10 (TT, ACA, AC, AR, Final Blow, Combo Tempest, High Defense, Combo Barrier) and mastery books Lv 20 and 30. EXP is good here but you’d need to deal at least 1 damage to the arms and bodies to get EXP from it unless you are Lv 135 + to leech from it.

Horntail (Lv 100 - 255)

To enter Horntail’s Cave you need to do prequests. However! If you are a donor (VIP) you can bypass the prequests by doing @goto horntail.

Rewards Include:

Horntail’s Pendant

Horntail’s Egg

ASC (1/200 Drop Rate)

Mastery Books 20 / 30

Tons of Weapons

In order for you to use the Horntail’s Egg to scroll the Pendant, you need to do a prequest. Other servers only allow you to Egg your pendant once, but in StoryMS you can scroll it all 3 times using the Horntail’s Egg!

Here’s a guide for the Horntail Egg Prequest:

 Horntail Egg Quest (How to get Dragon scroll for Horntail Pendant)

Chaos Zakum (Lv 120 - 255)

more zakum:Snailf3:

If you have done your prequests for Normal Zakum, you’re all set! If not… time to do them!

Chaos Zakum Leech is super fast! Just make sure you hit all of them until Lv 135! After Lv 135 you don’t need to hit them!

Chaos Zakum Drops:

Chaos Zakum Helmets

Skill Books 10

Mastery Books 20 / 30

ASC (1/400)

Chaos Horntail Pendant

Horntail Egg

ASC (1/40)

Lots of Weapons

Showa Boss (Lv 100 - 255)

This expedition has 3 bosses. You start it by summoning Bodyguard A using a Lady’s comb (Anego’s drop) on the golden chest far right.

Bodyguard A 100% stuns dealing 1 damage but immediately runs you over dealing 20k body hits. To beat this, you will need the high avoidability of NLs or permanent tanking warriors rushing it away from the team.

Bodyguard B is summoned right after you kill the first one. He deals magic damage. Close range magic damage is a gunshot dealing 13k and its body hit is also 20k damage.

The final boss is the Showa Boss. He seals the use of mana constantly and spams 1/1 which is lowering your HP and MP down to 1; the next hit will kill you if you don’t heal fast enough. Body hit is also 20k.

The rewards include pink gaia capes, sword earrings, among other minor prizes. However, if you manage to kill all 3 of them without having any deaths in the party you will also encounter the slot machine. This one drops pink gaia capes and a mask that has some stats. The EXP is great! 

Von Leon (Lv 120 - 255)

You can reach Von Leon by @goto vonleon.

As you fight Von Leon, keep in mind he has Damage Reflect.

He can also warp you out, where you have to break chests and find a key to get back inside.

Lastly, he spawns mobs that are super tanky and could get annoying!

Von Leon Drops:

All gear is different for each class.

Von Leon Gloves

Von Leon Suit/Overall

Von Leon Shoes

Von Leon Belt

Von Leon Cape (meh)

Pink Bean (Lv 120 - 255)

such a cutie  until you need an ASC

You need to complete all Temple of Time quests in order to reach the Pink Bean expedition. However! If you are VIP, you can type @goto pinkbean to skip the prequests!

Pink Bean has 5 statues that guard him.

Six-Phased Sequence

You don’t just defeat each of the 5 Statues once and proceed to challenge Pink Bean. There are a total of 6 Phases to Pink Bean, where the Pink Bean itself forms the final Phase (6). The other 5 Phases are Statues, each having an additional statue as the Phase progresses.

Phase 1: Wiseman Solomon

Phase 2: Wiseman Solomon + Wiseman Rex

Phase 3: Wiseman Solomon + Wiseman Rex + Huigin

Phase 4: Wiseman Solomon + Wiseman Rex + Huigin + Muinin

Phase 5: Wiseman Solomon + Wiseman Rex + Huigin + Muinin + Ariel

Phase 6: Pink Bean

Look up a detailed guide for Pink Bean! You only have 5 lives!

Watch out for its Damage Reflect!

Chaos Pink Bean (Lv 170 - 255)

Chaos Pink Bean! The same applies for CPB, if you are VIP you don’t need to do prequests.

There is nothing different regarding phases and sequences for Chaos Pink Bean. The mechanics are the same as Pink Bean.

The only difference is the HP the Statues & Pink Bean have.

Chaos Pink Bean is one of the end game bosses in StoryMS!

Chaos Pink Bean Drops:

Chaos Pink Bean Hat: (1/2 Drop Rate)

Mastery Books

Rock of Time

Advanced Secret Crystal (1/2 Drop Rate)

Leveling Tips

Click Here for our Leveling Guide!

Note:  These are just leveling tips coming from me. With the multiple updates we had, people came up with better ways to level!

(Answers in Discord #tips) 

(TIP!! Collect the Horny Mushroom caps as you will need it for a quest from the rememberer later!).

At level 23 the quest kill 99 zombie mushrooms will be unlocked. At 24 quests from The Rememberer will be available. Follow this questline till level 30.

 Normal Zakum: Level 50 (When leeching make sure you hit all arms)

Chaos Zakum: Level 120 (When leeching make sure you hit all arms till level 135!)

 * Blaze Wizards, Fire/Poison Mage/Night Walker can level super fast (even when unfunded) from Lion Heart Castle starting around level 75ish with DOT (Damage over Time) Skills! *Outlaws can do the same thing with Flamethrower. Although the DOT only lasts for 5 seconds, it is still doable!

 - 120-160 Future Henesys

Personally, after Lv 130+ I ran Chaos Zakum Arms with Makoto (shoutout to you best Duo partner ♡) all the way to Lv 255 for most of my characters.

Once players start to have some bonus link stats and are able to run czak arms efficiently, czak arm runs would still be the best for fast 255 leveling.

If you guys have any leveling places I should add feel free to let me know!

Gate of Future + Time-Controller Chair
