by Jessica Ring ; Updated September 22, 2017

"MapleStory" is an action-adventure MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) geared toward young adults and teenagers. In the game, you must gain experience by battling monsters and engaging in quests. "MapleStory" features a large array of weapons, items and even pets to help you. The snail is a special pet that only lives for five hours. You can obtain the snail by completing a quest for Mar the Fairy in Ellinia.

Travel to Victoria Island with a Level 15 character by clicking on the taxi cab on the left side of the screen. Choose "Victoria Island" from the travel options. You will receive a vision of a mystical fairy. The fairy will deposit a mysterious small egg into your inventory.

Travel to Ellinia by taking the taxi cab again. Ellinia is a giant tree inhabited by fairies. Travel down the branches of the tree until you reach the portal, which is located on the right side of the screen, near the bottom of the tree.

Talk to Mar the Fairy. Mar is located directly outside of where you will emerge from the portal. She will give you a speech about the responsibility of pet care. She will then turn the mysterious egg into a pet snail.

Remove the pet snail from your inventory to utilize it. Once you remove the snail from your inventory, it will only live for five hours.
