Competitive Party Quests are the other variety. In competitive Party Quests, either two parties compete against each other, or groups of people compete individually for a ranking. Experience earned in these quests is usually given based off your standings against the opposing team or individuals, so it's important to do well in order to get the most Experience possible.
 Monster Carnival
- Max attempts per day: 5
This is a competitive Party Quest for characters between levels 30 and up. A popup over your head will appear everyday between 8AM and Midnight both 15 minutes before and after the hour.
 Forming up
Once you have accepted the quest, you will be moved to the waiting room where the system will automatically separate players into 6 similarly leveled players after the time is up. If there is not enough people, the quest will be canceled and you will be given a buff and will be sent back to the town they came from.
During the battle, you have the option of looting up the potions that drop from the monsters (which is automatically applied once picked) or you may use your own potions at your own convienence. Additional items found in the battlefield:
- Carnival Points 1, 2 or 3(blue, red, or purple sphere respectively)- Gives you 1, 2, or 3 CP on pick up. Also, the carnival points look kind of spiked on the inside.
- Party Mana Elixir - Recovers 300 MP for all members of your party.

- Party Power Elixir - Recovers all HP and MP for all members of your party.
- Party All Cure Potion - Cures any abnormal state affecting any members of your party.

Parties win by having the most monsters killed by the end of 5 minutes. CPs are used to summon monsters, use skills, or summon protectors.
Each item has a set CP cost. Players can access them quickly using Tab and the F keys.

Also, the experience that is rewarded to both the winning and losing team varies depending on the level of your character.

 Ghost Ship
- Known as: "Sea Of Fog" in GlobalMS and "Dual Raid" in MapleSEA and EuropeMS.
A 3 vs 3 competitive Party Quest for Lv. 120~150 (since the Renegades patch), available in all versions.
To enter this area, you will have to complete a quest 'Wandering Rumors in the Sea Mist' by Captain Hwang. After you completed the quest, you will be given access by the Dolphin NPC in Aqua Road or Herb Town to warp to the Ghost Ship.
 Party Formation
When you are in the area of the Ghost Ship, you will need to have 2 parties available with 3 members in each party. After the two parties are ready, you talk to the NPC Norrington to take the challenge. Once you are inside, both parties will be named Team Red and Team Blue.
 Dual Race
This party quest has five stages and a boss stage. The main point of this party quest is which team beats the final boss first will win. In the first 5 stages, you cannot see the other team, in the last (boss) stage you can see both teams trying to defeat the Ghost Ship Captain.
Killing monsters can give you points, the more points you earn the more EXP you will get at the end. However, if you die, you will lose 5 points.
In all the stages you have to kill monsters. Surprisingly, there are Singapore mobs in this Party Quest. The mobs can drop Accessory for STR/INT/LUK/DEX/HP/MP 30% and 70% scrolls, which can be used on belts, pendants and rings.
Some monsters inside the Ghost Ship were given new mob skills as well:
- Potion Seal
For a period of time, you cannot use potions.
- Limited Vision
For a period of time, your eyesight decreases. Everything is in darkness except your character.
- Damage Stop
If you don't move your character, you will suffer damage. Note: All of these new curses can be dispelled.
In this Party Quest, you can earn 2 items by completing the PQ several times and getting the etc. item. 50 of them + Navy officer cape for a Navy Captain Cape, or 100 of them + navy officer gloves for a Navy Captain Gloves.
The team who beat Ghost Ship Captain (boss) quicker than the other team wins.
The amount of EXP you get depends on how many points you earned and the bonus EXP. Defeating the boss first earns your team more points, therefore, the winning team usually receives more EXP. The EXP should approximately be the same as the amount you would get for clearing a Party Quest.
