    Simple Gear up Guide for new players

    This guide will no longer be updated, prices and information maybe inncorrect

    LV90 - Free pinnacle set from gifts on left hand side bar <- 1st set of gear

    --Starting off your Journey--
    ---Easy 100mil to start you off ---
    - Vote for 3 vp, sell it for 20m-25m per vp
    - Sell Red cubes 800k-1m
    -Sell NX 1k:1m
    -Sell SBC 2-3m

    Equip rating by stats: Tyrant/Fafnir > JP > Emp > Onyx > pinnacle
    Note: FM is your friend, BUY YOUR EQUIPS

    --INDEX-- (Ctrl+F, to go to desired section)

    -Onyx Or Japanese

    -Accessories

    -Getting Better EQs

    -How to Farm $$$

    -End game best for slot equips

    -Upgrading gear

    -"Myth of reinforced + sup gollux > gollux + tyrant"

    -Scarlet Ring

    -Useful Info

    -Note-able equip mentions

    -Beginner tips: when you need to cube

    -Boss Drops
    ---------------------------------------
    ??? Onyx Or Japanese ??? <- this is going to be your 2nd set of gear
    Weapon - JP
    Shoe - JP
    Glove - JP
    Shoulder - JP/Boss
    Face - Onyx/Boss
    -----Onyx------
    +Only requires 6 pieces for full set effect, offers better flexibility when u are upgrading ur EQs 1 by 1
    +Cheap
    +Retardely cheap, 1k per leaf, 5k leaf per equip
    +Cheap to cube
    +Black secondary weapon is a must get regardless
    -Onyx Ring sucks, lv10 only, crap potentials (DONT GET IT, ITS EXPENSIVE AS WELL)

    (exchange at fm NPC Belle)

    -----JP------
    +Better set effect than Onyx
    +Better stats than Onyx
    -Requires every single JP equip for full set effect, no flexibility, breaks set effect when u upgrade EQs 1 by 1
    -gloves/shoe/shoulder relatively expensive
    -expensive to cube

    Both sets will enable you to do the same bosses/farm the same maps, onyx will simply be abit slower or requires better pot lines.

    Rough reference, 50 red cubes + 5 premium cubes for 3L 15%main stat legendary
    TLDR: Onyx = Cheaper, but worse mid game
    JP = Expensive, but better mid game


    JP = Japanese gear and varies depending on your class:
    -Amaterasu's set for Warriors
    -Ame-no-Uzume's set for Mages
    -Oyamatsumi's set for Archers
    -Tsukuyomi's set for Thieves
    -Susano-o's set for Pirates.
    Ty,ctrl for typing it all out

    --Accessories--
    --Alien set--
    +cheap
    +LV180, giving highest potential tiers
    +3 set effect gives 50 WA/MA
    - Expensive to cube
    - Ring cant be potential

    --Boss accessories--
    You should only be aiming for these specific accessories
    Ring - silver blossom ring (HT), really expensive
    Pocket - Pink Holy Grail (PB),cheapish? > Stone of Eternal Heart (Hilla),cheap
    Eye - Black Bean Mark (PB),expensive > Aquatic Letter eye (Zak)cheap
    Face - Condensed Power Crystal (Zak), Expensive
    Shoulder - Royal Black Metal Shoulder (Magnus), cheap

    --Rings(has potential)--
    -Tempest, expensive, scroll-able,has MA/WA
    -Gollux Rings, FREE, scroll-able, FREE scrolls, has MA/WA
    -LGR, expensive, gives 16WA/MA buff
    -Scarlet ring, expensive, acts as an EQ from the highest Level set, has MA/WA

    --Belts--
    Superior gollux belt > JP/Onyx (depending on your situation for set effects)




    LV200 - Gold Maple Leaf Emblem, left hand side bar gift

    LV150 -Badge - Ghost ship exorcist (Quick Travel -> monster map -> MP3 -> town scroll -> talk to ralph (the begger like guy?))

    Medal - Tynerum Guardian (crimson heart castle -> gollux , start this quest line by going to ellinia grendal the really old)

    Note: Im giving out free empress equips, please do not add me as FD, then proceed to ignore me when i PM you in game.
    ign shinonono


    --Kinesis/Xenon/Demons--
    Since Kinesis, Xenon and Demon (avenger/slayer) is a really sad class and doesnt have JP weapons, theres little point in investing into a JP set as you will never get the full set effect. There are few solutions

    -Utgard wep+onyx set
    -Empress wep + onyx set
    -Full empress set (empress EQs are less common in FM, very cheap)
    -Save up and skip directly to Fafnir weapon (500m-1b atleast, shit stats) <- personal preferd solution

    ---Getting Better EQs----
    + DO YOUR DAILY BOSSES, especially madman ranmaru(Potential drops: JP set, scarlet ring, LGR), 50 rewards points per boss, 2.5k per violet (200-250m)
    -Pinnacle set will only enable you to do easy/normal zakum

    +Gollux, please take your time and do that freaking annoying gollux prequest, it essentialy gives 3 FREEEEEEEEEE END GAME EQS

    + Prioritize perfecting your secondary weapon first (unless you use a shield/scroll able secondary), cuz the secondary weapon is easy to get and it stays with you 4EVER

    +Buy big spider/mutant pig familliar (1-3, depending on how often u farm), summon then just b4 killing/starting the boss fight, instantly gives u 100% more drop rate for worthy EQs

    --How to Farm $$$--
    1. Spare out 4H of ur time and buy x2 drop for 4H, (prefably with x3 big spider and x3 mutant pig, each lasting roughly 1.5h)

    -Pet vac + monster park <- for the filfthy rich

    -GS2 elite/normal (decent mesos, decent NX, decent namless/time coins) <- overall winner, depends on pricing of bonus -potential cubes, can farm for 400m + 1 stacks of cubes in 3-4H

    -Ulu city elite/normal (crap mesos, Very good NX, crap nameless/time coins) (poor map layout for pickup, leading to the crap ratings for drops that need picking up)

    -Alien base corridor 6 (0 mesos, crap nx, very good nameless/time coins) (over crowded) <- 2 stacks of bonus potential cubes in 5-6H, due to low prices from the bpot cubes, this is no longer best place to farm

    -PPQ spam for bonus silver pot stamp (not recommended unless you have 400%+ drop rate, requires a party)

    -Skyline 1 (Best mesos, decent nx, decent nameless/time coins) (over crowded) (best farming map, due to high spawn rates) (compared to other maps listed, this requires a very high range to 1hit K/O them and elite channels are even harder)<- roughly 500m per hour with 300% mesos rate

    bonus pot cube 1 = 4m-4.5m

    --End game best for slot equips--
    -Ring-
    Superior gollux ring
    Silver blossom ring
    Reinforced Gollux ring
    LGR

    -Earrings-
    Superior gollux earring

    -Pendant-
    x2 superior gollux pendant Both pendants will contribute towards the gollux set effect, giving you the 4 piece effect

    -Shoulder, Face, Eye, Pocket-
    Boss set

    -Medal-
    LV250 - Nova Medal

    -Emblem-
    Crystal maple leaf emblem (180 coins achievement shop)

    -Badge-
    Ghost ship exorcist

    -Hat, Top, Bot, Glove, Shoe, Belt, Weapon, Cape-
    CRA + Tyrant

    ---------------------------------
    Upgrading gear

    -How to cube-
    1. 70% potential scroll
    2.Premium cube for 3L
    3.Red all the way
    4.Violet when u become filthy rich
    Extra: 20% item drop rate is worth keeping, unless you really need the %stat lines to enable harder bosses
    Extra: 20% mesos rate is not worth keeping (for beginners), mesos rate only shines when you can farm skyline

    -How to Bonus potential-
    1. yolo 70% bpot scroll (from cashop) or filthy rich 100% (from cashshop) or 70% + shield ward(from PQ)
    2. Spam bonus potential cubes

    Special quest: Ninja castle quest line, series of simple kill quests (kerning -> spinel (mushroom shrine) -> the carraige next to gatcha)
    - Reward: 100% bpot scroll which gives 3lines of bpot, CANNOT BE REPEATED

    -Video guide to the inner maple castle layout: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYlc2p8Vac0
    (Ty Ctrl, for bringing this to my attention)


    -Inner potential-
    1.Use points to wash until you get unqiue
    2.Cash shop -> reward points shop -> miracle circulator for legendary

    -Scrolling-
    -Non end game EQs worth scrolling-
    JP wep -> 800mp coins (maple admin box) super scroll + spell trace
    JP shoulder -> Mchaos
    JP Gloves -> Best glove your going to get unless you fight hekaton for tyrant glove, WA->10% glove atk + vega 10% + shield scroll MA->super scroll + spell trace
    Rings -> pussy cog/yolo mchaos

    -Vega 10%-
    1. Use @drops to chech which mobs drop your desired scroll
    2. farm them
    3. SS + Vega + 10% scroll

    -This combination is = 800 time coins 100% scrolls, this is faster and cheaper to farm than 800 time coins

    Scroll for earring for int 10% <- Mage, earrings
    Scroll for (weapon) for (main stat) 10% <- Hearts
    Scroll for gloves for ATT <- WA class gloves


    --Andriod hearts--
    -The best heart u can get WITHOUT spending DP is lidium heart from achievement shop ( not recommended, crap potential lines)

    -Buying DP (with real $ or mesos) is alot better, 2.5k DP for a SLH

    -Scroll with 800 time coin wep scrolls / 10% wep scrolls+10%vega +shield scroll



    --"Myth of reinforced + sup gollux > gollux + tyrant"?????--

    Reinforced + Superior gollux set
    - sup pendant
    - reinforced pendant
    - sup belt
    - scarlet

    Sup gollux + tyrant
    - tyrant belt
    - lgr
    - x2 sup pendant

    (rest of the equips they use are the same, thus not listed out)

    Sup+tyrant
    +sup gollux pendant has better stats (5 all stat, 2 MA/WA) and 1 more scroll slot (10 MA/WA, 10 all stat) (Assume perfectly scrolled)
    +(assuming perfectly scrolld) Scarlet 32 MA/WA (34 all stat), LGR 37MA/WA (includes buff) (32 all stat)

    Reinforced + Sup gollux
    +tyrant belt < Gollux belt (+30 all stat, + 30 MA/WA) (unehanced) (gollux has 2 more scroll slots)(assume perfect scrolld)
    +15 all stat
    + 30 MA/WA
    (from reinforced set effect)

    Results: +43 MA/WA, +32 all stats, if u use Reinforced + Sup Gollux

    Sup gollux belt enhance stats : 5 x 2, 5 x 3, 5 x 4 = 45 all stat

    IF your tyrant belt enhancements can give u more stats the figures stated above, Tyrant will be better
    (I have no idea how enhancements for superior items work)
    Note: enhancing tyrant belt will give massive all stats and MA/WA, this doesnt not take into account of the EXTRA stats you would get from %stat lines

    TLDR: (unenhanced) tyrant + sup gollux < reninforced + sup gollux



    --Scarlet Ring --

    For whatever reason a lot of ppl seem to be confused about scarlet ring

    important info:

    -scarlet ring DOES NOT fill in a part of a set which does not contain a ring

    -scarlet ring IS NOT the best possible ring equip and never will be

    -scarlet ring is a BAD for the purposes of completing the gollux (4) set, gollux ear + x2 gollux pendant + gollux ring WILL GIVE YOU THE COMPLETE SET EFFECT


    When to use a scarlet ring:
    -substitute for alien ring for alien set
    -only 1 pendant slot


    TLDR: NEVER BUY/USE A SCARLET RING



    --------------------------
    Useful Info

    1.potential 70% scrolls are 100% (proof: http://elluel.net/showthread.php?506...ential-scrolls )
    2.when not 100% scrolls please sheild scroll, or u regret 4 life
    3. Any Non weapon EQ -> pussy cog / yolo mchaos
    4. Mutli pet skill is automatically given at lv200

    5. PLEASE DO GOLLUX AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, IT GIVES YOU FREE, FREEEEEEE , FREEEEEEEEEE EQUIPS, you get limited runs per day, so the earlier u start it the better (start quest line by going to ellinia grendal the really old)

    6. Skill books 20/30 can be bought from miumiu (cash shop -> reward shop) or at leafre, where there an skill book selling NPC illiad (above monster park car)

    7. Familiar vitality only recovers when you are online
    8. Fishing is an excellent way burn away ur own life and make u regret ur own life decisions
    -------------------------
    Note-able equip mentions

    1. aquarius crown- helmet - 1wa/ma 22 scrolling slots. Reason for excluding in mentions above: requires unrealistic amount of luck to get it scrolled with the cog/mchaoses

    2. Krexel shoulder - shoulder. Has lower wa/ma than both JP and boss set, the only up sides are lv160 giving the highest tier potential lines and its obtained through quests

    3. Tower of Oz emblem - emblem. While being better than GS badge, this has a time limit on it and requires a high ranking in tower of oz, thus requires weekly cubing/scrolling/wtever you do with them.

    4. Magnus Annihilator/Marvel - Medal. Better than "Tynerum Guardian", but worse than "Nova Medal". The potential "end game" medal if u have no plans for lv250

    5. Sweetwater accessories - eye, face. Marginally better than boss accessories when fully enhanced with the 13% stat lines. Takes too much effort for them to be better than boss

    6. Inverse Metal Shoulder - shoulder. 10MA/WA . BUT requires 200 hekaton coins, for only a marginally better shoulder. 400 coins Tyrant glove should be the higher priority
    --------------------------

    Beginner tips: when you need to cube

    -When you are up to a point where you need to farm for cubes to cube your gear, instead of doing it on your current character, create a Link Skill Character. Cubes can be transferred through cash shop. It takes less than 1Hour to get to lv120 giving your a LV2 link skill and rank S character card.

    -Why create a link mule to farm instead of on ur main?
    You WILL create link mule sooner or later at some point for the free damages, therefore this saves time in the future while achieving your goal of getting cubes and helps you starting your bossing journey earlier

    -Less than 1hour lv120 training guide- (Note: Zero has x4 exp rate only b4 lv150 and starts at lv100)

    1-10 - tutorial

    10-20 - Walk to henesys fire golems, and clean a few packs of horny/green mushrooms for quick levels

    20-30 - Fire golems

    LV30, Use the exp buff obtained from gift on left hand side bar

    30-50/70 - Elite channel (8-10) fire golems

    50-60/70 - Jesters (Requires fast whole map clear to be more efficient than fire golems) (Depending on how strong of an early game class you are playing, proceed to next map at lv60 if strong early game)

    60/70-75/80 - Sand rats + scropions (Depending on how strong of an early game class you are playing, proceed to next map at lv75 if strong early game)

    75/80-90 - Roids

    90-110/120 - Alien base corridor (Depending on how strong of an bosser your class is, strong classes can go zakum at lv110)

    110-120 - Normal Zakum (Note: killing zak arms give additional exp, but if you kill the main body before the arms, the arm exp will not be given)





    ----Boss Drops----

    Zakum - Aquatic Letter Eye, Condensed Power Crystal, Zakum Soul Shard

    HornTail - Silver Blossom Ring

    PinkBean - Pink Holy Grail, Black Bean Mark, Pink Bean Soul Shard, Timeless warrior/mage sheild, Pink Bean Chair

    Madman Ranmaru - Any JP gear, Scarlet Ring, Lightning God Ring

    Hilla - Stone of Eternal Life, Hilla Soul Shard

    Chaos Root Abyss - CRA gear from respective bosses

    Hard Magnus - Epic Pot 100%, Magnus Soul Shard, Magnus annihilator, Tyrant gear

    Cygnus - Empress gear, Cygnus soul shard, MChaos 60%, Shin Soo famliar

    Gollux - Gollux Belt, Gollux Pendant

    Universal boss drops- Medal of honor, Crown Fragment, Utgard equips

    (No idea what ark, von leon, ursurs and lotus drops)
    (any drops not listed is worthless to a point where u dont care if it drops or not)

    This helped a lot for a newbie like me. I suggest including the minimum range that is required to down specific bosses such as Ranmaru, etc.

    Bossing is more of an trial and error thing, as every job has different bossing skills/buffs, and different level of IED and BD.

    There is also a huge gap between do-able and killing it with speed, while some would take the time to grind it out, lazy ppl like me would never spend more than 5min on a boss

    JP = Japanese gear and varies depending on your class: Amaterasu's set for Warriors, Ame-no-Uzume's set for Mages, Oyamatsumi's set for Archers, Tsukuyomi's set for Thieves, and Susano-o's set for Pirates.

    Normal Ranmaru drops Jap recipes. Madman Ranmaru drops Jap gear.

    So you wouldn't suggest scrolling jap gears (other than weapon) before we have funds for end game gear? for example, i'm stuck at like 350k range, and not sure how to get higher without starting to scroll my gear (and getting rings etc ofcourse). I want to be able to farm at scrapyard maps, but I'm still too weak.

    Also, why not the empress set? It's pretty good, and requires less pieces. Unlike the jap set that gets pwned once you drop a single piece.

    Also, how do you scroll hearts? With super scrolls from mp?

    When wearing 2 items:
    Weapon Def.: +300
    Magic Def.: +300
    Avoidability: +200
    Accuracy: +200

    When wearing 3 items:
    MaxHP: +15%
    MaxMP: +15%

    When wearing 4 items:
    Weapon/Magic Attack: +15
    Reduce the duration of all status abnormalities by 2 seconds.

    When wearing 5 items:
    All Stats: +20
    +2 skill levels

    When wearing 6:
    Weapon/Magic Attack: +30
    Increase your damage by 30% against bosses.

    theres only 6 pieces, hat, shoe, overall, wep, cape, shoulder. Only the 6 set effect is good, hence ur never ever going to get it unless ur going empress wep, but at that point u might as well go full JP

    -350k is enough for normal gollux, madman ranmaru, and normal/elite channel farming for GS, its more efficient to farm there for $ to get ur better equips. Than to waste money to scroll ur current equips to maybe enable hard gollux and scrapyard, then get new equips which u cant use until u scroll them

    -hearts are scrolld with the 800 time coins wep scrolls


    wep,glove(unless ur going to get 300coins for tyrants, this is the best glove u get),shoulder is scroll worthy
