MapleStory Monster Familiar Guide

Monster familiars are versions of MapleStory enemies that you can summon to help you battle throughout Maple World. One of the first things to understand about monster familiars is that they are not pets. In fact, there are significant differences between familiars and pets that go beyond the fact that only familiars can be used in combat, such as:

  • Familiars cannot use pet equipment.
  • Familiars are summoned using cards, which can either be purchased from the Cash Shop or collected from monsters in Maple World. Pets are available through the Cash Shop only, except for the lovely Snail pet entrusted to you by Mar the Fairy.
  • Familiars cannot be summoned in the Free Market or Battle Square.
  • A familiar will be the same level as you when summoned. Familiar skills cannot be upgraded.
  • Familiars are rated based on how difficult they are to acquire. They come in Common, Uncommon, Rare, and Legendary types.

How to Get Cards

Cards can also be obtained by hunting monsters. Occasionally you will see a card drop from the monster you’ve killed. Pick up the card and it will move to the “Use” section of your inventory. You can hover your cursor over the card to see information about the familiar.

The Cash Shop offers packs of cards for sale. Starter Packs and Booster Packs are available regularly, and occasionally Legendary Booster Packs are sold. Click here to read more about how they work and what kinds of cards you can get from them.

Anatomy of a Card

  • Level: Your character must be this level or higher to summon the familiar.
  • Name: This is the generic name for the creature. When you add it to your Crusader Codex, you will have the opportunity to give it an individual name.
  • Friendship Time: When you acquire a familiar, you may only summon it for 30 days (real time). Registering a second card from the same monster increases its duration to 60 days and increases its max vitality, and registering three cards from the same monster increases its duration to a max of 90 days and increases its max vitality to its limit.
  • Attacks and Effects: This area details what type of special attacks the creature can make along with an effect that happens while the creature is summoned.
  • Attack Power and Range: The amount of damage the familiar can cause while attacking and how far away from you it will roam.
  • Vitality: How long the creature will be able to fight until exhausted.

Card Rarity

Cards come in different rarities. Do you see that orange star on the Red Drake card above, along with the orange number in the top left and the orange background behind the Red Drake image? All of those indicate that this is a rare card. You can tell the rarity of cards by the colors displayed in the corner of their image icons, and by certain color schemes and icons on the card details. The border around the familiar image box will also become more detailed depending on the rarity of the card.

Common: Gray/silver. Crescent moon displayed in the card details image.
Uncommon: Yellow. Blazing sun displayed in the card details image.
Rare: Orange. Five-pointed star displayed in the card details image.
Legendary: Purple. Eigh-pointed star displayed in the card details image.

Activating Cards

As long as the card is in your inventory, you will be able to trade it with another player. To activate a card, double-click it to move it into the Familiar tab in the Crusader Codex. Once registered in the Crusader Codex, the Friendship Timer will start ticking down.

Summoning Familiars

Once you’re ready to use your familiar, open your Crusader Codex, select the Familiar section, and double-click the monster you’d like to summon. The monster will appear next you, ready to battle on your behalf. Only one familiar may be summoned at a time and it will stay with you as you do most activities in MapleStory. Use the C, U, R, and L tabs to find a registered familiar based on its rarity.

A few important things to note about summoned familiars:

  • Familiars can only be summoned if they have full Vitality.
  • Familiars cannot be summoned in the Free Market or Battle Square. If you enter either area while a familiar is out, it will be dismissed.
  • Familiars will be dismissed when you ride a mount.

Start your Monster Familiar collection off strong. Only one Starter Pack can be purchased per account, but there is no restriction on the numbers of Booster and Legendary Booster Packs you can buy. Each pack is consumed after one use. The Starter Pack and Booster Packs are available in the Game section under the Etc tab. The Legendary Booster Packs are available in the Event section under the Event tab.

Here’s what each type of packs contains:

Starter Pack
Four Familiar cards: Pig, Cloud Fox, Terrified Wild Boar, Red Drake

Booster Pack
Three random Familiar cards.
The first card will be common.
The second card will have a 50/50 chance of being common or uncommon.
The third card will have a 60% chance to be uncommon and a 40% chance to be rare.

Legendary Booster Pack
Three random rare or higher ranked Familiar cards; one below level 50, one below level 100, and one level 100 or higher. When you flip the card for the Lv.100 rare Familiar card, there is a chance that it will actually be a legendary Familiar card that can be of any level.
As a bonus, opening a Legendary Booster Pack will give you a Volatile Legend Familiar Stamp in the Use tab of your item inventory.
Collect 20 Volatile Legend Familiar Stamps and double-click them to get a Volatile Legend Familiar Ticket in the Use tab of your item inventory.
Double-click a Volatile Legend Familiar Ticket to get a random Legendary Familiar!

Here’s how to use the packs:
Purchase a pack of your choice in the Cash Shop.
Double-click the pack in your Cash inventory to move it to your item inventory, then exit the Cash Shop.
Double-click a pack in the Cash tab of your item inventory to receive the cards.
Double-click a card in the Use tab of your item inventory to register it in your Crusader Codex.

    Smaill tip: If while hunting 250 Racaroni for the Verne Mine stamp in Maple Guide (the faster to return to Shaft 2 with!), its familiar should drop, a Racaroni familiar makes a better stepping stone than Mixed Golem for hunting the Big Spider familiar.

    Incidentally, doing price checks in the auction house can often let you see the specs on legendary familiars you can’t see in the Creature Codex.

    Platoon Chronos should also be listed as party HP/MP recovery.

    Thanatos and Castle Golem have the effect of recovering HP/MP to nearby people.

  4. Ryan!!!

    you got master birk familiar wrong

    master birk should be in the party effect because it also dos party members

    I just got back into the game after 6 years. I was told that some places do not have Familiar Card drops at all, & I’d like to know where not to bother grinding for them, because I want to Catch Them All.

  6. Lee Shao Wei

    why aren’t the monster familiars available in MSEA ?

  7. snowball

    which one would be the best for demon avenger

  8. Chris

    Hey does getting 3 mutant ribbon pig cards have better drop rate than only 1?

  9. Mia

    Thank you for this guide! Very helpful.
    But how would I find this “Kitty from Cheese Storage” familiar which increases meso and drops rate? I’ve looked it up but all I have been able to find is that it’s located in the Cheese Storage…
