    Can anyone answer whether or not an unique emblem item can be ranked up (using stones) to get a legendary emblem item?
    couldn’t manage to find any answers for this on the net.
    sorry for the dumb question if anyone is offended.

  5. Dean

    I do have a concern though. I got a max base archer shoes. 7/7 and ranked it up and it became 57 instead of 58. :(

    So are we sure its 58? Cause if it is I’m not stopping until i get it so. LOL xD

    @lynn: Magic Attack +100 (value) is much better than Magic Damage Increase +1% if your base attack is low. If your base attack is high, then go with Magic Damage Increase. Personally, I’ll go with Magic Attack since its will contribute more damage early on in the game.

  11. Ayumilove Post author

    @Nicklaus Oh: Thanks for the screenshot for the Warrior Outfit Epic 280. I have replace the one in the guide with your image and stats.

  12. Ayumilove Post author

    @King: Let’s take an example of a Bow Unique stats (1315~1338x~1690)
    First value (1315) refers to highest seen stat with proof/screenshot.
    Second value (1338x) refers to the perfect max stat without any proof/screenshot.
    Third value (1690) refers to emblem item (above perfect max stat item)

    There are some players who perform upgrade on their perfect max stat armor mentioned that its based on RnG (Random Number Generated).

  13. King

    why is the new stats in weapon got ~ and max stats
    and amour which is max stats rank up give max stats or random ?

  14. Kyoru

    2nd Halphas 24/24 says 101 as well(before upgrade screen). Damn RnG is bad

    magic attack +100 is better or magic dmg increase +1% is better? thanks!

  18. lynn

    magic attack +100 is better or magic dmg increase +% is better? thanks!

  19. Ayumilove Post author

    @all: Added some images of the Emblem armor equipments.

  20. Ayumilove Post author

    @Dennis: There are some MapleStoryM players that after they max upgraded their normal armor and ranked it up, some will reach its max defense stats. I guess its something to do with the MapleStoryM game engine logic which may use some RNG (Random Number Generator) to introduce slight variation to the armor stat. Currently Trade Station has not listed any warrior normal hat above 12 defense stat. This same applies to warrior normal outfit above 26 defense stat.

  21. Ayumilove Post author

    @Mystery: Thanks for the image link! I have added the stat and image link into the guide above.

  22. Mystery

    Archer Epic Hat is now 112

    @Quynn: Please provide a screenshot in-game of the Archer Epic Hat 112 so I can add it in the guide above. Thanks!

  24. Quynn

    Max for Archer epic hat is 112, not 108.

  25. Ayumilove Post author

    @Kyoru: Some forum members mentioned that armor gears may be slightly random.

  26. Ayumilove Post author

    @Samuel: Currently the Trade Station has out of stock for Spear ATK 27. You can try purchasing a Spear ranked at Rare or Epic at max stat.

  27. Kyoru

    Upgraded my 24/24 Halphas, Rank Up gives 101 instead of 102 D: Where did i go wrong?

  28. Samuel

    Hi Ayumi, So far I only have WA 26 Spears all the time, and havent seen a 27 yet.

    Hi Ayumi. Bought warrior normal hat 12 and normal outfit 26. Level it up, but hat came out to be 110 epic and outfit 102 rare. Don’t think normal hat 12 and normal outfit 26 is the max.

  31. Ayumilove Post author

    @TehJarVoo: Hi, could you kindly provide the picture to the Eclectic rapid Archer Hat? The picture will be used as a reference point and also a proof the stats exist :-)

  32. Ayumilove Post author

    @Mike: Thanks for the notice. I have updated the Epic Spear Stats to 1315. The spear ATK value 1316 was obtained from the video spreadsheet.

  33. Mike

    Hi ayumi, my friend ranked up his spear from epic to unique, 650 att, however the end state is only capped at 1315. Does 1316 att unique spear exist? So far in the market only found 1315. There isn’t any image or video to clarify also. Hopefully you have some inner info!

    Thanks & regards
