How to Queue for Boss Fights using the Boss Waiting List

MapleStory Boss Waiting List Icon Selection

The Boss waiting list system allows level 50+ players to conveniently teleport to their boss map of choice. You can queue with a party or as an individual.

Step 1: Open the Boss Wait List Window

You can do this by

  • Opening the Buddy or Party window and clicking on the ‘Boss’ tab
  • Or pressing the Boss wait list hotkey

(This is what the boss wait list hot key looks like.)

Step 2: Select a Boss

In this example, I chose Zakum.

If the boss cannot be selected there may be level restrictions or uncompleted pre-quests. (example)

Step 3: Selecting the Difficulty

Use the arrow keys to choose which mode boss you want to fight. You can hover over the boss image to see more information. (example)

If the difficulty level appears in grey (example) it means you are not yet eligible for entry. This can be due to uncompleted pre-quests or level restrictions. You can hover over the icon for more information.

Step 4: Time to Wait!

A small window should appear that indicates you are on the waiting list. Leave it to search for a party. You can continue to fight mobs and walk around but refrain from opening the storage or shop windows.

When a party has been found, a new window will pop up. Pressing OK will teleport you to the boss map.
