Maplestory EXP Stacking

NOTE: Some information may be wrong or inaccurate. Feel free to correct me by commenting or sending me a private message. Credits will be given. Thanks!

In this entry, I will provide the common sources of EXP and how they are stacked with one another.

Edit: New information updated. Refer to end of post for update logs.

 

If any of the information I’ve provided is false or outdated, do correct me. All the information are mostly from observations I have made throughout the years.

Types of EXP Boost

There are 2 types of EXP boost.
> Multiplier on base EXP.
> FIXED Percentage from base EXP

Base EXP is what the monster originally gives.

EXP Display

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

EXP Stacking

I’ve separated the different sources of EXP into groups.

You’re 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 – 1.2x from CashShop
> EXP Coupon – 1.5x from CashShop
> EXP Coupon – 2.0x from CashShop
> EXP Coupon – 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 (southperry.net).

Group K:

> All other percentages are usually in their own group

Computations

Alright! Here comes the exciting part! This is a new update so if there is any mistake do correct me. This calculation is observed in MapleSEA.

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

Total:
> Multiplier = 2 x 2 x 1.5 = 6x
> Percentage = 30 + 15 + 10 = 55%

> EXP in White: 1,000 x 6 = 6,000
> EXP in Yellow: 1,000 x 55% = 550 (nuuuuuuu! so little?!!)

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

The maximum I’ve gotten before was total 9.6x on 2.0x System Event(2 hours) and total 7.2x on Enjoyable Winter for 19 consecutive hours. That was when my MapleSEA Phantom grew from level 183 to 200 on the last Christmas.

04 April 2014 Update:
Found this somewhere and thought I would update it here.

EXP Multipliers
1. Server 2x stacks with 2x Coupon and makes it 4x
2. If you have Holy Symbol, it will become 6x
3. If you have Kanna’s “Kishin Shoukan” it literally adds another 35-45%, depending on your killing speed
4. Elven blessing is FIXED at 15%
5. Fairy pendant is FIXED at 30% (Max)
6. Welcome Back Ring mule is FIXED at 80%
7. Experience Accumulation Potion is FIXED at 10%
8. Enjoyable Winter & other free EXP buffs DO NOT stack with server 2x(or 1.5x / 3x)

Current maximum EXP Multiplier would be
3x EXP Coupon
Holy Symbol
2x EXP Server Event
Premium Coupon
Elven Blessing
Fairy Pendant
Welcome Back Ring
EXP Accumulation Potion
Banner of Experience
Zero Character Card
(3 x 1.5 x 2) + (0.2 + 0.15 + 0.3 + 0.8 + 0.1 + 0.1 + 0.1) = 10.75
