MapleSEA Shortcut to ANYWHERE (or at least, most places)

This short guide will tell you how to get from one place to another quickly in MapleSEA. It’s geared towards newbies because most veteran players already know this trick.

Step 1: Go to any town with a Mirror of Dimension and click on it.

If you’re in Pantheon already, just skip to Step 5 straight away. If you’re in a town in Victoria Island, use ‘quick move’ to teleport to the Six Path Crossway Platform

Step 2: Teleport to Zipangu (aka Mushroom Shrine)

Step 3: Talk to the Perry (the giant bird) and go to the Six Path Crossway.

Step 4: Enter the Interdimensional Portal

Step 5: Click on the Interdimensional Portal again and teleport anywhere from there!

You can also teleport to almost anywhere by accessing Veritas through Aqua Road but it’s much easier to get to the Interdimensional Portal through Zipangu.

How to Queue for Boss Fights using the Boss Waiting List

You can do this by

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

Step 2: Select a Boss

Boss Wait list_select
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)

Boss Wait list_select_difficulty

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!

Confirm your selection of the boss and difficulty.

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.
