There are many great mesos-making quests inside MapleStory that can make you more mesos than some of the other quests.
Here is one of them:
Quest name: John’s Pink Flowering Basket
Location: Victoria Island: Lith Harbour
Level Required: 15
You can find John in Lith Harbour. He is a fisherman there and he needs flowers for his wife.
You need to go to Sleepywood to get these 10 Pink flowers.
If you do not know where Sleepywood is yet, you need to go to the Dungeon.
I prefer to take the Herseys route since I do not have the scroll yet.
To get to Sleepywood, take the Herseys path to the Dungeon. You will go through 2 zones until you finally get to the Dungeon.
When you get in the zone, keep dropping down until you will finally see a statue with a zone in it. Zone in and you will be in Sleepywood.
From there, walk right until you see a statue on the ground. Click on the statue. The statue will take you into a jumping quest zone.
Get through both of these zones and collect the flowers. Once you get the flowers, you will be transported out of the zone.
There is a chance that you will not get enough flowers if someone has just done the quest. If you do get all 10 flowers, return to Lith Harbour and get some EXP and 30 screws! Also, do not forget to get a Sleepywood scroll if you have $600 mesos.
There are 2 ways you can make money from this quest:
1. Finishing this quest allows you to do that jumping quest for ores. Remember Ores = Mesos. If you are good at it, you can get your time down to about 2 minutes per completion. That is one ore per minute. This is pretty good. If you collect enough of these ores with this method, you can make ore plates which sells for $20,000 to $60,000 each. IT can be more or less, depending on the ore, market and server you are on. So, it’s not a bad quest to practice especially at low levels of the game.
2. At the end of the quest, you get 30 screws. You can sell them for $1,000 each, making you $30,000! There are screws going for $5,000 each and it can actually make you $80,000!. So, this quest can potentially make you $80,000 at level 15.
I did an experiment to see how much mesos I could farm in 2 hours. I was able to do about 50 hours in 2 hours, got myself 100 pieces of ores, with the potential to make a maximum of 10 refined ores. Selling them separately at the free market ranging from $2,000 to $7,000 each, I made a grand total of $532,000! This is not bad for 2 hours of work at level 15. This will help to free up mesos problems for a while.
