Hello and welcome to my jump quest guide. If you are wanting to strangle John, Shumi, Sabitrama, or all three of them because of the things they send you off to do, hopefully this will help you change your mind. This guide includes step by step instructions on how to complete a jump quest.

*Notes before reading*
1.Pictures here are keyed in a Specific way:
Red lined platforms are safe spots where standing up is perfectly fine.
Green lined platforms are ducking spots where you need to duck to avoid an obstacle.
Blue lined platforms are jumping spots where you need to time a jump to avoid an obstacle.
White arrows point to where an object is moving to help understand what is going on.
Black arrows point to the direction in which the player should move.
Orange curved lines represent jumps and orange straight lines means a brief pause until an obstacle is out of the way.

2. Rhythm is key in a jump quest, develop rhythm, and you're a jumping pro.

3. Platforms in jump quests are lined at exactly the same distance for everyone. (Except level 25 sabitrama) If you have a metronome, set it to 85 and on every tick and tock is when you should jump without obstacles. (This mainly comes in handy in the 1st johns quest as there aren't many obstacles.

4. Set your visual quality to LOW before starting the jump quest to minimize lag which will knock you out of rhythm. Do NOT change quality AFTER you have entered the jump quest. Otherwise it will double the amount of obstacles in your way.

5. First hand experience is ALWAYS better than instructions. You should at least TRY the jump quest at least once before trying to use these instructions as they will make a lot more sense.

6. These directions are by no means the fastest way to finish a jump quest, but rather the safest way to finish. When you start to get a feeling for a jump quest, experiment around and find faster ways to get past obstacles.

7. I am very sorry for the terrible photo editing but all I have is MS Paint.

[John's quests]

Level 15
Item required: 10 Pink Violas
Prize: 30 screws
Located: John in Lith Harbor

*Notes before starting*

1. This will be your most frustrating jump quest as it is your first jump quest. This is where you will develop your rhythm, personal tricks, and patterns which you will use for every jump quest from here on out.

2. When there is a platform diagonally below you, you can simply walk onto it instead of jumping on to it.

3. DON'T GIVE UP! :D

*End Notes*

Head over to John (by foot or by scroll) in Lith Harbor and say Hi to him.
Posted Image
Apparently He needs your help to get some flowers for a flower basket for his wife. Considering it's your MapleDuty to appease every single NPC... why not?

Head over to sleepywood and find a statue which looks like this:
Posted Image

Double click on it and click OK and get ready for your very first jump quest.

Keep going up until you encounter your first obstacle which is a green fuzzy thingy which looks like something Oscar the Grouch coughed up.
Posted Image

When the fuzz ball is moving right, you should continue jumping past it. As with the next fuzz ball until you get to the next "big island".

Continue along until you encounter the next set of green fuzz balls and you will notice you can no longer stand under them. You must duck to avoid getting hit by them. Wait until the fuzz balls are slightly to the right and above your head moving to the right and jump 2 platforms. Wait to jump to the next platform and duck, and do the same as the last fuzz ball.
Posted Image

Now continue on to the next area.

This area is a bit tougher because it's not just straight jumping, but more of avoiding obstacles. Nothing you can't handle though.

Climb up the ladder and walk to 3rd jumping platform. Wait until the fuzz ball is in the position below and jump 2 platforms.
Posted Image

Then wait for the fuzz ball to come back to the left and walk down two platforms. Wait until it goes back again to the left and jump two platforms again and climb the ladder.
Posted Image

Now you have to deal with two fuzz balls at the same time. Not a problem. When the top fuzz is moving left and the bottom fuzz is moving right, jump 2 platforms and duck.
Posted Image

Now when the top fuzz ball is slightly to the right of your body, move down two platforms.
Posted Image

Now when the bottom fuzz and the fuzz thats to the left converge, jump up 2 platforms and when they start to seperate to opposite sides, go down 2 platforms to the safe standing spot. Then when they converge again, jump up 2 platforms to where the ladder is.
Posted Image

Now head half way up the ladder (to the points right below the moving fuzz) and wait for it to start moving right. Start moving up the ladder again and climb the rest of the way.
Posted Image

Now when the green fuzz moves to the right, jump to the next platform, walk a little ways, and jump again to the next platform following the fuzz. When the fuzz slows down and is preparing to move back to the left, duck to avoid it.
Posted Image

You should see another fuzz ball coming towards you from the right, but it won't hit you. Instead just follow it and jump 2 platforms and you should suddenly see a 2nd fuzz ball near the ground. Just simply let it hit you and keep walking past it until you get to the long line of vertical platforms.
Posted Image

Jump up the vertical platforms to the 2nd topmost one and duck. You will now see the giant red fuzz. Which is faster, bigger, and just very notable in bright red. Jump up to the top platform when the green one is moving towards the left, and when you see the red one moving left and the green moving right, jump one platform and go down two.
Posted Image

Now jump one platform when the green one is out of the way. Now wait for the red one to move to the right, then jump one platform and walk down two. Since the red fuzz can't get you, just jump the rest of the platforms until an "island".
Posted Image

You will now encounter another red fuzz, but as long as you're on the island, you're safe. Just wait until the red fuzz moves to the right and jump 3 platforms.
Posted Image

By now the red fuzz is moving to the left to just walk and jump three more platforms.
To where you must now jump on time to avoid the red fuzz.
Posted Image

Keep jumping straight up to avoid the red fuzz until the green fuzz is clear to the right, then jump and walk two platforms.
Posted Image

From here, wait until the green fuzz it moving to your left, then jump and walk 2 platforms. Wait until it moves to your left again, then jump 2 platforms.
Posted Image
You're almost done!

Jump up one platform and duck. When the red fuzz moves to the right and out of screen, jump 2 platforms and duck. Wait for the 2nd red fuzz to move to the left, then jump and walk 2 platforms and duck again.
Posted Image

Now when the red fuzz moves to the right, jump 2 platforms and duck. Wait for the next one to move to the left and either;
A) Jump one platform and jump dodge the red fuzz as it's coming right, then go down and duck.
B) Jump one platform and walk to the next one if the fuzz won't hit you.
Then wait for the red fuzz to move to the right again and jump two platforms and duck.
Posted Image

There will be one final green fuzz but it's easy considering you went through all those red ones. Just simply wait for the green one to get out of the way, and tada! You've finished your very first jump quest!
Posted Image

Just double click on the flower pile and you will get X amount of pink violas, where X= 1-10. If you didn't get 10 flowers, this means you have to finish this quest again to get enough flowers. Just take the flowers you have to John and get the rest.

Level 30
Item required: 20 blue violas
Prize: Job specific fully upgraded level 35 glove
Located: John in Lith Harbor

*Notes before starting*
1. After this quest got changed, people have been saying it's a living hell. It's actually not that hard after you get the hang of it. Just have patience, and don't put a boot up your computer's donkey and everything will be fine.

2. In the 2nd part, there will be 2 types of stars that will pose as obstacles. The gray ones, which will hit you to the right, and black ones, which will hit you to the left. This may not seem important to you, but it's a life saver knowing which direction you get hit.

3. There are ghost platforms in the first part of this quest so I will mark all stepabble platforms with purple.
*End notes*

Looks like John needs more flowers for his wife, and since you're the nice guy and all, of course you're gonna help him. This time he needs you to get 20 Blue Violas. Well looks like you're gonna go to Sleepywood again. Double click the statue and press Ok and this time you will be teleported to the Deep Forrest of Patience Step 3.
If you've done this quest before, you will know there are ghost floors which you can fall through. The pattern is not random however, all you need to do is look at which direction the bag's tip is pointing towards. There are 3 different sections where ghost floors are present. The bottom, (where you first enter), the right side, and the left side. On the Bottom and Right sides, If the bag tip is pointing to the right, it is stepable.
Posted Image
On the left side only platforms with bag tips pointing left are stepable.
Posted Image
So now that you know this, jump on the platforms with the proper bags until you reach a rope. Climb the rope until you reach a series of bagless platforms. (Don't worry platforms between sections don't apply to the ghost floor rule.)
Posted Image
Jump the platforms until you get to the Right side section. Remember, here, only bag tips pointing right are stepable.

Jump vertically twice then jump to the right and jump to the left and duck from the star.
Posted Image

Jump according to the picture below and stand at the safe spot.
Posted Image

Now wait for the black star to move either to the left or the right and continue jumping until you reach another "inbetween" section.
Posted Image

Now from here, wait until the star is out of the way and just walk down 3 platforms to find a rope.
Posted Image

From here climb down and avoid the first star and when the next star comes, quickly climb down and get hit by it. You will land on a platform so no worries.
Posted Image

Continue up the platforms until you now reach the left section. From here, only bag tips POINTING LEFT will be steppable.
Posted Image

Continue up the platforms and stop just before you reach the 2 converging stars.
Posted Image

Wait until both stars go opposite sides and off the screen and jump jump and jump all the platforms you can before you get to the next set of stars.
Posted Image

Now you will see more stars, except this time you have to duck under them. Other than that just repeat until you get to the last star of the left section.
Posted Image

Now it's the same thing except only with one star. Just wait until the star starts to go left and jump jump jump. Now you're out of the left section and almost finished with the first part of Level 30 John!
Posted Image

When you encounter the next star, wait for it to move right, and go down 2 platforms and up two platforms, then duck.
Posted Image

Wait until the top star moves to the right and the bottom star moves the left, go down two platforms and duck. Then wait until the top star moves to the left, then jump up 2 platforms and duck again. Wait until the star makes a round trip and starts to go left again before jumping 2 more platforms to the teleporter.
Posted Image

Now is the "hard" part everyone complains about. Throwing stars galore in part 2 but still not a problem.

Go right and climb the rope but not all the way. Have your head sticking half way out like below.
Posted Image
Wait for the star to go right and quickly follow it up one platform and down two.

Now at your safe spot, wait for the black star to go to the left and quickly jump the platforms. If you aren't quick or fast enough, you will get hit by a gray star which comes from the top.
Posted Image

Wait for the grey star to go down and jump up 2 more platforms and wait until they come back. The grey star will move back down and the black star will move left. Now jump 2 platforms and go down 2.
Posted Image

Wait until the black star above you goes to the right. Now jump up the two platforms and climb up the rope.
Posted Image

Climb the rope so your head pokes out half way. Wait until the bottom star moves to the left and the top star comes to the right. Jump onto the long platforms where you must either have very good timing to jump between the stars, or knowing how the stars hit you and use that and the temporary invincibility to your advantage.
Posted Image
This is where knowing which direction the stars hit you comes in handy. When you're jumping straight into the air and a star hits you, it will leap you over obstacles, if you're jumping against the direction the star hits you, (jumping right when it hits left) it will hit you back to where jumped from, and if you jump in the same direction as a star, it will propel you in that direction for a pretty long jump. Remember this and try to experiment with it seeing as it's very difficult for me to take screenshots of this in action.

Continue along until you get to the point below and duck. Wait for the black star to go left and jump two platforms to get to the safe spot.
Posted Image

This is where it starts to get hard if you don't know what you're doing. Explaining this maybe difficult so if you don't understand I apologize in advance. Wait for the grey stars to go up and the black star to be coming left. Jump to the next platform and duck.
Posted Image

When the grey star is about to be in this position, jump to the next platform and duck. Then you find another grey star except it's pattern is different from the others. Wait until it's about to go up and jump and duck on the next platform. Make sure the black star going back and forth isn't in the way.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Now duck and wait until the stars are about to be in this position:
Posted Image
(It looks like a face! :P) Now quickly jump to the next platform and duck before the the stars converge and seperate.
Posted Image
Now the stars are out of the screen so continue along and jump to the next platform and duck.

You will now see another irregular patterned grey star. Do what you did on the last one and simply wait for it to start going up. Then jump to the next platform and the next all the while avoiding black stars. Keep on going until you reach the safe spots. From here take a breather, go take a bathroom break, get yourself some food or w/e before continuing on.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Now you will have to jump over those grey stars you had to avoid earlier. Very easy actually. Just jump over one platform when the stars are located in the position below.
Posted Image

Continue doing this until you get the very left side. Now is the hard part everyone hates. This is the part where jumping over obstacles is, to me, impossible so the only way I could find to get past this part is to tank through it. Just keep moving and use your temporary invincibility (from when you get hit). Don't stop moving right, otherwise the stars will knock you back significantly and might throw you off. Only jump from platform to platform when you are temporarily invincible. Otherwise one of the stars might knock you into the gaps and you'll have to start allll over again.

When you finally get to the end, duck under the platform where the saw is going back and forth. When the saw is moving left, jump to next platform and stand at the very tip which is safe.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Now carefully jump over to the next platform. If you get hit don't worry too much as they hit you left. Just continue and you will soon be at the flower pile! Minimize your mini map and double click on your prize!
Posted Image

Now take those god awful flowers back to John. If you didn't get enough, tough luck you're gonna have to do it again. (I had to do it 4 times. I got 4 my first 3 times and 12 my last time. <_<)

Well when you get all 20 flowers to him you will be rewarded with a very nice glove. Enjoy! :D

[Shumi's quests]

Level 20
Item required: Shumi's lost coin
Prize: 30 return scrolls to a random town
Location: Shumi by the subway entrance

*Notes before starting*

1. The monsters you will encounter in shumi's quests are invincible as in they will take no damage. So don't try to kill them. :P
2. This was one of the harder jump quests that I've done. Just have patience and those 30 returns scrolls will be yours. Doesn't seem like such a befitting prize for all that frustration. <_<

*End notes*

Well it's time for another jump quest! Your very second jump quest actually. The scenario goes; Shumi has dropped her coin in the subway and wants to get it back. She's too lazy and scared to get it herself so it's now officially your job. If you've read what the reward is for this, well... it's not awe inspiring. It is necessary however, that you complete this one to do the other shumi quests which have much better prizes.

Go inside the subway and purchase a ticket from the ticket man. Buy a ticket to Construction Site B1. Now double click on the ticket reader to the far right of the screen. Click ok and you have now started your first shumi quest.

Walk over to the ladder and climb up jump the platforms until you get to the portal. No obstacles here :D so go into the portal.

Now jump up the platforms until you get to your first obstacle, a horizontal laser moving up and down. Not a problem. Go down the first platform and wait until the laser moves up. Then jump up a platform and go down one and jump another one.
Posted Image

You will now see a neki and an eletric charge pole. Wait until the electric charge has gone down and go down to the long platform. Just walk through the jr neki as it won't do much. Walk to the opposite side and jump to the next platform.
Posted Image

Now you will see two platforms with nekis on each of them. Just wait until the nekis are moving rightward and jump to the next portal. Enter and go to the next subarea.
Posted Image

*In working progress*

Level 30
Item required: Shumi's lost bunle of money
Prize: 100 mana elixers
(In working progress)

Level 40
Item required: Shumi's sack of cash
Prize: Random % shoe scroll for speed, 30 elixers
(In working progress)

[Sabitrama's quests]

Level 25
Item required: A specific color flower.
Prize: 60% overall armor
Location: Sabitrama in Sleepywood by sauna entrance
Shane in Ellinia looking like an idiot.

*Notes before starting*
1. As by now, you have developed a rhythm or at least know how to properly jump. Well set aside all that knowledge for now. The distance of the platforms in this jump quest is different from all the rest of the jump quests. The platforms are further apart and you cannot go down a platform by simply walking. You MUST JUMP even to go down a platform.
2. The metronome setting for this is different. It is approximately 83 instead of 85 which is the pattern for the other jump quests.
3. This is one of the more frustrating jump quests you will face so just relax and take it slowly.
*End Notes*

At level 25 Sabitrama apparently needs some deeds done. He needs a particular color of a flower (random for each person) for his diet medicine. He doesn't seem very fat to me, except maybe his head. XD Anyways of course you're going to do it because its a quest! Go to ellinia and talk to Shane. You will have to pay a fee to enter his forest, but it's not much. Just pay the man and begin your jump quest.

As you start you will notice that the platforms seem to be leaning one way. They may seem like it but they actually aren't. Try not to look too hard otherwise it will look very awkward and mess with your head. Just concentrate on jumping and be patient.

Anyways, as you start take the left path and just jump. No need to worry about obstacles as there are none in the first part except at the very top. Just keep jumping until you get to the next "intersection of platforms".
Posted Image

When you reach this intersection, take the left path again and continue on to the next intersection.
Posted Image

When you reach this intersection, all you have to do until you reach the top, is go the opposite side you went on the last time. Example: you took the left path on the last intersection, so take the right side this time. Then at the next intersection take the left side. Continue this pattern until you get to the top of the platforms and reach a rope with monkeys throwing bananas on it.

From this point, wait until the first monkey throws the banana and then climb up into the gap between the first and second monkey.
Posted Image

Now just wait until the 2nd monkey throws his banana and climb the rest of the way up and into the portal.
Posted Image

Easy, no? Now it's the 2nd part and it's a bit tougher. Go to the right and you will see a rope with more monkies. Wait for both monkies to throw their bananas at just about the same time. Climb up into the space between the monkies and wait.
Posted Image

Wait for the 2nd pair of monkies to throw their bananas at about the same time and just climb the rest of the way up onto the platform.
Posted Image

Jump to the next platform and wait until the spears come up and go back down. Jump to the next platform and do the same. Then jump to the next platform and do the same again. You should now be on a spearless platform. (Not shown on picture)
Posted Image

Now jump to the next platform and wait until the spears come up and go back down.
Jump to the next platform (it doesn't matter whether the spears are up or down just jump and you will still be on the platform) and stop for a moment to recover if you got hit. Then jump to the next platform.
Posted Image

Jump to the next platform (it doesn't matter if you get hit by spears) and move to the right side of the platform out of the way of the spears. Then wait for the spears to come up and go down again. Now jump to the next platform.
Posted Image

Wait for the 2 spears to come out and go back in and jump to the next platform. Wait again for the 2 spears and jump again. Wait one more time for the 2 spears and jump to the next platform.
Posted Image

Wait for the bottom set of horizontal spears to go in and duck under the platform. Then wait for both the top and bottom set of horizontal spears to come out at the same time. When they both go back in, hold the jump button until you get to the top and jump to the next platform.
Posted Image

Wait for both sets of spears to come out at about the same time and when they go back in, jump to the next platform. Wait again for both sets of spears to come out at about the same time and then jump to the next platform. Then jump again to the next platform.
Posted Image

Wait for the 2 sets of spears to come out at the same time and go back in again. Jump the next platform and duck under the platform. Wait for ALL 3 sets of spears to come out at about the same time, then hold the jump button still you get to the top. If you did it fast enough you shouldn't have gotten hit. Then jump the next platform above on the left.
Posted Image

Jump to the next platform and look closely at the middle of the next few platforms. See those twig looking things in the middle? Those are obstacles. They were meant to be jumped over but instead we're going to do things differently. Rapidly tap the arrow key to do a staggering motion towards the twig and if done correct it will move you slightly to the left and make you temporarily invincible. This allows you to get past the obstacles easier than by jumping over it. Jump to the next platform and do the same. Jump again to the next platform and do the same again.
Posted Image

Jump to the next platform and do the same as last time. Now jump to the platform above you to the left and jump again to the right. Now repeat the same thing done in the row below you except this time keep stagger walking even after you get hit by the twig and go through the twig to the end of the platform. Jump until the platform marked by the picture.
Posted Image

Jump to the next platform and repeat the things done in the last two paragraphs.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Now just jump the platforms until you reach the rope. Becareful not to mistime your jumps here as it is easy to fall all the way to the beginning.
Posted Image

Now wait for the monkies to throw their bananas and climb up into the next gap, wait again climb up into the next gap.
Posted Image

Now wait for the monkeys to throw the bananas and climb up into the gap. Now wait for the first monkey to throw his banana and the second monkey to throw his slightly afterwards. If this happens, climb up as soon as the second monkey is about to throw his banana.
Posted Image

Now wait for the first monkey to throw his banana and the second one about to throw his banana. At this point climb up into the gap above the second monkey. Now just wait until the 2 monkies throw their bananas and climb the rest of the way up.
Posted Image

Now jump to the next platform and jump, not walk, to the platform below. Now at this part, jump off the platform to the left and you will hopefully land here:
Posted Image
At that part jump into that gap and wait.

Now wait for the monkey to throw his banana and climb into the gap.
Posted Image

Now wait for both monkies to throw their bananas at about the same time and climb to the next gap.
Posted Image

Now the last part! Wait for all the monkies to throw their bananas at approximately the same time and just climb the rest of the way up! It may take awhile but be patient and it will happen.
Posted Image

You've finished it! Now just jump the rest of the way up and click on the pile of flowers. Make sure you get the right color. Now take those flowers back to Sabitrama and reap your rewards.

Level 50
Item required: A specific type of ginseng.
Prize: Star Rock
(In working progress)

I know I only have a few jump quests right now but I am working hard on the rest.
Could a mod Pin this please?
