Dolly's Dailies Guide

Hi guys! It's Dolly from NAE - I just wanted to share a little guide I made that keeps me straight on all of the dailies I do each day! I plan to expand on it with additional guides, screenshots and add more dailies as they come. Thank you so much to Chiky of NAE for your edits!

Daily reset is 0000 UTC (Maple time shown in game at top left), which is 4PM PT/6PM CT/7PM ET
Weekly reset is 0000 UTC Fridays (Maple time shown in game at top left), which is 4PM PT Thursday/6 PM CT Thursday/7PM ET Thursday



  • Daily Wonders - Check your Daily Wonders tab to grab any daily that is being given out for events or that you have purchased! This is located bottom right, the character (red/yellow icon).

  • Guild Dailies - Easy! If you're in a guild, make sure to check in each day by going to your guild pop-up and clicking Check In at the bottom right of the window. If your guild does guild quests, don't forget to participate in those too!

  • Pet Fusion
    Catch & fuse pets into other pets a maximum of 24 times/day to make the most of your fusion bonuses to level up your pet! There are a lot of detailed guides and information regarding pets. A really good resource can be found here.

  • 2x Daily World Boss Guide/Event Quests - Each day NPC Aliyar in the center of Queenstown will have two quests for you to pick up.
    He will ask you to defeat two world bosses. Pick up the quests first then, when the bosses spawn on different maps, kill them! Killing each boss will complete the quest. Bring both quests back before the expiration date on the quest for prizes! (Additional tips, tricks & ss to be added)

  • Clearing hard dungeons - You have 15 dungeon runs daily to get item rewards from.
    You can see how many clears you have left per day by going to the World Map (2nd icon) > Challenge Map. A 30 cap per week applies, but can be reset once per week per character for a total of 60 dungeon clears/week. Note: If you hit level 50, your dungeon count will automatically reset. :)

  • Premium dungeon - If you have Premium Club enabled, don't forget to do your premium dungeon once per day!
    You can find the premium dungeon here: World map icon to the bottom right > Challenge Map > Premium Dungeon. You must do this dungeon alone!
    TIP! I use Oska to complete this, I find that her quick movement and skills make her easiest to use

  • Premium pots - Collect the free pots that come with your premium membership under the premium club icon at bottom right (found 5th column, row 1).

  • Special dungeons - Currently if you go to Challenge Map > Special Dungeons, you can clear the Cathy Mart Part-Time Job dungeon 1x/day (resets at midnight).
    This is a very easy and fun dungeon that you play in party-mode - you just need to find 3 other people to participate. Check the Party Finder for groups!

  • Analyze rusted key 1/day - If you have any rusted keys in your inventory, visit NPC Natalie in Tria to have her analyze one of your keys per day at the best price.
    If you need to analyze more than one per day, you can, but the price for each consecutive key goes up by a ton. This resets each day, so, if you aren't in a hurry you can have one per each day analyzed for 100k meso.

  • Treasure dungeons - The Abandoned Mine B1 dungeon is a 1-player dungeon that you can clear 10x/day.
    To enter the B1 dungeon you need a Abandoned Mine Key (B1), which you can get by having your rusted keys analyzed (see above). Resets daily at midnight.

  • Decoration score - Visit your house once per day to obtain the chest that is awarded according to your Decoration Score (top left when in housing).
    To increase your Decoration Score & get the max of 1100/1100, fulfill the requirements by dropping down that menu & placing those items in your home
    TIP! If you have multiple housing layouts saved, make sure that you load the one that has the highest decoration score before collecting this

  • Sky Fortress Missions
    Board the Sky Fortress by using the Sky Fortress icon at the bottom right (found column 6, row 1). Talk to each of the NPCs to pick up their quests.

  • Life Skills - This is the most time-consuming of the bunch, but it's worth it! You could write a guide alone on each of these easily, but here are general tips to start to get your rank up.

    You access your life skills through three tabs on the Life Skills button at the bottom right. There are 10 life skills for you to level up each day:
    Four gather skills: Mining, ranching, foraging & farming
    Four craft skills: Smithing, handicrafts, alchemy & cooking
    Two leisure skills: Interior design & pet taming
    You can farm/ranch more times in your own home than in someone else's. If you max out each of the items in your own home to 'Impossible', you can still visit someone else's house to get a few additional times until you also reach 'Impossible' on theirs. After you reach 'Impossible', on both, you will be out of tries until this resets for the day.
    TIP! Before starting any life skill leveling, try checking your inventory's Consumable tab first to see if you have any curio items to use to boost your gains! These are items like: Marjoram supplement, iron mail chain gloves, lavender crystal, pumpkin seasoning, etc. You can save these until you have a lot of leveling to do so that they aren't wasted! Complete list is below.
    TIP! Curios do not directly boost your EXP, they instead boost your materials gained! Thank you fellow Mapler, Elyxthaxzus, for the testing and detailed explanation found in the comments!
    TIP! There is an Auto-Gathering badge (Inventory > Badges tab, if you have) you can equip that will continuously gather your items until they are gone




    Mining & foraging are done in areas outside of player housing. As you level up, you will eventually unlock Berg Island (mining) & Alkimi island (forgaging), which you can access on the docks on Lith Harbor after doing a very short quest that will pop up as an exclamation on your character's head at the bottom right of your screen. If you do not yet have these islands, the best way to find where you should go is to access the Life Skills menu, pick an item and click the link on the map listed under Known Locations. You can then go to that map and use the mini-map at the top right to look for the mining/shovel icons.

    Farming & ranching are done in player housing. You can add farm items as well as animals to ranch to your own home by going to Start Furnishing, then the Life Skills tab at the bottom. These unlock as you increase in rank. You can also visit other players houses to farm on their land!

    Crafting can be done in the Life Skills menu while you are on any map. It's important to hover over the materials you are using to craft as it will tell you if those materials are also used in any other crafts - then you can prioritize your materials if you're limited. For example, if you hover over Mined Opal under Smithing > Zinc Chain Mail Gloves, you'll find that the mined opal is also used to make many other Smithing & Handicrafts items
    TIP! Crafting can be a bit more straining on your computer. I typically craft when I know I have some down-time and am not on a heavily populated map

    Here is a list of curios you can use to boost your Life Skills in order of least powerful to most powerful:
    1. Mining curios (Made by Handicrafts): Chicken feather pouch, pigskin pouch, woolen pouch, deer hide pouch, eagle feather pouch, griffin feather pouch
    2. Smithing curios (Made by Smithing): Opal smithing slate, sapphire smithing slate, diamond smithing slate, amethyst smithing slate, amber smithing slate, pearl smithing slate
    3. Handicraft curios (Made by Handicrafts): Snail shell handicraft slate, milky handicraft slate, turtle shell handicraft slate, longhorn handicraft slate, horsehoe handicraft slate, dragon horn handicraft slate
    4. Farming curios (Made by Alchemy): Marjoram supplement, rosemary supplement, mandarin supplement, tea supplement, bergamot supplement, patchouli supplement
    5. Alchemy curios (Made by Alchemy): Lavender crystal, lemon balm crystal, jasmine crystal, oregano crystal, basil crystal
    6. Cooking curios (Made by Cooking): Pumpkin seasoning, pine mushroom seasoning, green onion seasoning, medicinal mushroom seasoning, cucumber seasoning, agaric mushroom seasoning
    7. Foraging curios (Made by Cooking): Rice chips, apple chips, orange chips, banana chips, tomato chips, pear chips
    8. Ranching curios (Made Smithing): Copper chain mail gloves, zinc chain mail gloves, iron chain mail gloves, nickel chain mail gloves, tungsten chain mail gloves, cobalt chain mail gloves

    Hey Dolly! As a new player, this really helped me out. There's so much to do and this guide really helped me organize what I needed to do once I reached cap. The Life Skills are quite a handful. Thanks for providing some tips and pointers for it, since I completely ignored it. Do you know how important it is to keep it leveled?

    Bookmarked! Great guide! ♥

    Depends on what you want to focus on! Since you get rank/exp and also unlock gear and furniture for housing through life skills, I think it's something good to keep up on

    great guide Dolly! I have a question I hope you can answer, as I haven't had the chance to test it myself. the consumables that increase your gathering rate: does this actually increase the total amount you can gather each day? I wasn't sure how the daily limits are managed, and my first though was that they limit the amount you can gather each day, and thus the consumables would only speed up your gathering. are the daily limits set up differently? if so, I'll make sure I use the consumables every day when I gather!

    EDIT: I tested it, mostly because I wanted to see if it increased my gathering experience. And it doesn't. So looks like your XP (both gathering and class XP) are based on how many NODES you are farming, Not the volume of materials. So the consumables that increase production when gathering ONLY increase how much material you get. It's probably worth noting that you continue to get class XP even then you are no longer getting gathering XP (you can only get gathering XP from the 3 highest tier nodes you have unlocked). But neither is affected by the consumables. Of course, more mats is always good, but I wasn't sure how the XP all worked out.

    Not sure if anyone cares about that :D but I was hoping to speed up my gathering skills leveling, guess this was not a solution! Hope the info helps folks.

    Recommendation: Add a set of places for each of the "use 5 of x item in y" dailies. These give you a specific place, but can actually be done anywhere. It would be nice to have a list of the easiest/lowest level places to use each of the environment weapons.

    Isn't it better to avoid premium, special, treasure dungeons until we're on dungeon cap 30/30?

    I will add that everyday it will reset the prestige experience that you gather. 1.000.000 is the limit for everyday.

    Thanks for breaking it down even further & updating to help other people out! Life Skills is seriously a beast all on its own!

    Great question, yes and no! Premium and special dungeons (Cathy Mart is the only one currently) do not count to your dungeon clears! Treasure dungeons would count towards clear count, so, it's up to you if it's worth or not. If you're max level, probablyyy not so much.

    I would recommend to update this to a weekly guide if you'd like to, as many players want to progress there are some few things that's important to complete such as stellar glass to purchase every week. Gemstone boxes from Guild shop and much more.

    Good job otherwise with the daily guide
