    Sitting at level 47 for the moment, wondering about how I got here in the first place. Pure DEX.

    About Islander Levels vs Off-Island Levels:
    - Islander @ 20 is similar to Islander Job Advancement

    https://maplelegends.com/lib/quest?id=30035

    Note: Pick either Hair/Face reward ONLY!!
    - Picking 3k EXP as reward is bad, since it only takes 10-15min to farm Pigs for 3k EXP



    - Islander @ 30 is similar to leeched level 70 Off-Island (smega shoutout, congrats!)
    - Islander @ 70 is similar to level 200 Off-Island (smega shoutout, congrats!)
    - Islander @ +70 is similar to going OVER 9000


    Please Refer to The MapleLegends Experience Table Below:
    https://maplelegends.com/lib/exptable
    Level 20 = 77,625 total experience points
    Level 30 = 548,637 total experience points
    Level 70 = 31,545,355 total experience points

    Pigs = 30 experience points per kill
    https://maplelegends.com/lib/all?search=pig

    Best Experience on Maple Island:
    - Rainbow Street: Hunting Grounds Middle of the Forest II
    https://maplelegends.com/lib/map?id=1000006

    Pig Experience Converted to Number of Pigs Killed:
    2,587.5 pigs killed by lvl20 = 77,625 exp @ lvl20 / 30 exp / pig
    18,287.9 pigs killed by lvl30 = 548,637 exp @ lvl30 / 30 exp / pig
    1,051,511.833 pigs killed by lvl70 = 31,545,355 exp @ lvl70 / 30 exp / pig

    - It's feasible to kill 2,587.5 pigs as a daily grind session (how? ...in Part 2).
    -- go from lvl1-70 in ~407 IRL days
    OnionSweat

    Basics of Islanders Leveling Up:
    1hit = 1kill OJ Mushrooms 100% @ 83 minimum attack
    1hit = 1kill Pigs 100% @ 78 minimum attack

    - why is 83 minimum attack to 1 hit = 1 kill all Maple Island monsters 100% ?
    -- Pigs(75hp) and OJ Mushrooms(80hp) both monsters have 3 Defense

    Avoid/Mobs Miss for Islanders:
    LUK = 290 to 300 range @ 80% rate for all Island mobs to Miss.

    How Fast to Get to Level 30:
    - On average about 5-6 days IRL without power leveling
    - With power leveling = 3-5 days IRL
    (WARNING: serious burnout! if in 3 days)
    - I had to take a mini break as shown in the spoiler

    Power leveling to level 30 Alt Islander for Example:

    Conclusion of Results:
    - Fruit Knife + Three Shells is better than Gold Surfboard, only when all stats are equal
    - Gold Surfboard is best over all, since longer reach (especially for slopes), and +6 jump

    - Speed + Jump stats makes a difference in overall EPH, although not significant
    -- Why?
    -- Maple Island's Commonly Available Equips + Use Items boosts to nearly max stats, and negates the marginal EPH differences between the two weapons:

    Because you want to hit that minimum damage of 75/80 (pigs or orange mushies, respectively) as soon as possible. Dex does more for min dmg

    I'm oldschool with what I personally like to see on the island, freely transferrable items would entirely negate the purpose of islanding in my personal view.
    I'm sure other islanders don't agree, but that's just my reason for being against islander storage.

    I think islanders are a really cool thing and that storage should be added to the island because it would better balance the people that have event items like chairs or others.

    I think it’s really cool to have played maple at different points of its game span throughout the years.

    I for one, have played in a time when MTS was around 2003-2012, and also allowed trading on the island. This was the big green Market(called Trade) Button, which also allowed islanders.

    So technically… allowing the Free Market button for islanders like the good ol’days would be relatively the same as having Storage, except with Storage mules instead. So nothing to do with NX/Donor/Vote Cash.

    Neckson eventually removed it after Big Bang in 2012 due to NX exploits. Which of course there’s no exploits if it’s only Free Market, also there’s no pay2win.

    Just Free Market now.

    https://forums.mapletip.com/index.php?/topic/120166-a-bright-new-day-for-maplestory-d/

    This was a post from a random mapler from back in the day:

    upload_2021-9-20_10-8-3.png

    https://forum.maplelegends.com/index.php?threads/storage-on-maple-island.36458/

    Of course I also agree with you that the island’s native mob drops are pretty cool, and adheres to the aesthetic nostalgia for the most part.

    Just to add to this. Dex also gives you avoid, so on top of raising min dmg you're also add to your avoid stat. Although if you are looking to utilize low attack weapons like fruit knife @ an early level without the use of attack buffs, STR can be an alternative.
