Howdy everyone! Welcome to "0 to 15 in 60 minutes" where it's possible to create a great mule with very little effort.
This guide assumes the following:
- You are an experienced player and just want a mule as fast as possible.
- You want a warrior, since warriors get 1 extra row of inventory.
- You want to get to level 15 to avoid Nexon's 1m/day quota.
You're doing it wrong
If you do any of the following, you're doing it wrong.
1. Allocate any of your AP.
2. Allocate any points into the beginner skill "Recovery".
3. Pick up any mesos or non-quest related drops (except for equips or monster cards, if you get that lucky)
4. Equip any items or buy any new equipment.
5. Use any attack other than "Three Snails".
6. Have "Three Snails" at a lower level than 3 by the end of this guide.
7. Fail to do all of the quests on Maple Island.
8. Need to use any funding from any outside character.
Trust me on these things and you will have a mule very fast.
In the first map, complete the first quest. In the second map, complete Nina and Sen's Dinner Menu quest. complete Roger's Apple quest. This will give you some extra MP that you will need later on. In the next screen, kill a Jr. Sentinel and bring it up to the dude at the top. Finish his quest, then go onto the next screen and complete his little quiz. Don't kill any snails yet. Talk to the guy on the right side of the map and take his challenge to kill 10 snails.
Point Allocation : Allocate 1 point to Three Snails
Travel all the way right to the person he designates while killing snails with "Three Snails". You should be able to meet the 10 snail quota by the time you reach the person. If you run out of MP, you will have the apples from Roger's quest to replenish your supply. Maria then tells you to go to Amherst to deliver a letter. Head right through the upper portal. Complete Yoona's quest on the way to Amherst, then head to town.
Finish Rain's quiz for some extra EXP, then finish off Pio's Recycling quest. Pio's quest will give you 200 mesos that you'll need later on. Finally, head right to talk to Lucas. After delivering the letter, he'll recommend you talk to Mia for further training. Go ahead and talk to Mia, she'll request you to kill a few stumps and bring back some tree branches.
Point Allocation : Max Three Snails
By this point you should be able to 1HKO the stumps. Finish Mia's quests as quickly as possible. The stumps are in the two basins in the center bottom of the map. There's a decent spawn of red snails on the bottom right of the map. When she asks you to kill slimes, there are slimes at the top left of the map and pigs at the top right of the map. Use any MP pots that you've acquired along the way to suit your MP needs. You can also choose to allocate some points here to Nimble Feet if you'd like an extra speed boost.
After you've finished Mia's training, head back to Lucas for another reward, and a letter to give to Shanks to ensure you won't have to pay the 150 mesos to go to Victoria Island. From here, your destination is to now head to Southperry. On your way to Southperry, you can choose to take the reply letter from Lucas back to Maria, but the quest reward isn't great - 10 EXP and a Skullcap. It's up to you on this one.
On the way to Southperry, you'll meet Bari. He'll ask you to kill a few Orange Mushrooms. These orange mushrooms spawn on the platform above him, so continue changing channels until you can get a decent spawn on that platform. Take his EXP and head on over to Southperry.
In Southperry, you'll meet Biggs who somehow wants to tell you his life story. Blah blah blah, get on with it! Next next next... okay, go see Olaf. Gotcha! Go talk to Shanks and head over to Victoria Island. By this point, you should be level 9.
quickly head over to see Olaf. Complete his small quiz, and tell him you want to be a warrior. Head back to the taxi service in town and transport yourself over to Perion (this is what the 200 mesos from Pio's quest is for). Head up to Dances with Balrog and become a warrior, and start Balrog's first training quest.
Point Allocation : 1 point into Improving HP recovery
Head over to the local store and sell all of the non-traditional MP and HP pots you've gathered along the way. Buy four return to nearest town scrolls. Make sure you have 2400 mesos at this point. If you do not, sell off some more pots to make sure you have 2400 mesos.
Use the local taxi service and transport yourself back to Lith Harbor. Talk to Captain Al (top left part of Lith Harbor) and listen to his long spiel about the Family System. He gives you a whopping 1500 EXP. Use the taxi service to go back to Perion.
Talk to Ayan and start the "Stump Horror Story" quest. Head right and enter the portal. You might be tempted to fight stumps here, but there's better spawn in the next map over (East Rocky Mountain I). Head to Rocky Mountain I and jump down to the bottom of the map to fight the stumps. Only use a return scroll each time that you complete Dances with Balrog's quests. Do not use a return scroll to get Ayan's quest reward. Wait and get both Balrog's quest reward and Ayan's quest reward at the same time. Make sure to allocate your SP as a warrior should (because hey, you never know! You might want to start a warrior someday). Continue completing all of Balrog's quests.
In the last training mission, Balrog will ask you to kill dark stumps. Head over to Rocky Road I (three maps east) and kill 20 dark stumps, then teleport back to Perion. Finish the quest, and Balrog will give you some return scrolls and pots as a reward.
From this point, it's very easy to finish off levels 13 - 15 at East Rocky Mountain I. If other people have faster options on how to progress from 13 - 15, I'd love to hear it!
I'm always willing to take options for creating a faster mule. I do know that there is a way to get a quick teleport from Lith Harbor to the job instructor of your choice, but for some reason I can't remember how to do that. If someone can remind me how to do this, please do so!
Thanks for reading, and enjoy your FAST MULE.
