Endgame Guide

So…. you've reached lvl 50+ in chinese maplestory 2~ Now what?



current event (month of January-current)
Do event, get +12 equipment!
here is guide for surging_power_event




Beforehand) everything in this guide: Newbie Guide(冒险岛2 / CMS2)

A)Equipment ranks(from lowest to highest)
White, green, blue, Purple(excellent), Yellow(Legendary), Orange(Epic)

B)Equipment info:
Basic properties: These are stats that every form of that equip of the same name will have. Some equips these stats fluctuate. some equips these stats are fixed

Additional properies: Think of these like Potential from Maplestory 1. This stat will be different on every equip you find. You can reroll for new stats+amounts. If using scrolls you can also: Lock lines/ammounts and/or Reroll just the ammounts

Gem slots: Only found on Earrings, Pendant, Rings. Gem slots are locked by default. After you unlock 'em you can equip stat gems here. More info on gems



C)How to Dismantle (getting raw materials)
rule of thumb: If white/green equips, ncp for meso.
If blue with Useless stats, dismantle - If blue with Really good stats, maybe sell on auction house
If purple(non-accessory) and useless stats, dismantle to get Chaos Onyx [混沌玛瑙结晶] (Used for weapon enhancement).
If purple(accessory) w/ useless stat, Sell on Auction house at base value or Save for Opening gem slots
If purple (armour/weapon) with really good stats. Maybe sell on Auction house or use it

D)How to pimp yo equips:
Enhancement system (Making your Weapon + Overalls/top/bottom Better)
Gems & Fashion Gems system (adding slots to certain equipment to add Statted gems)

E)How To Dungeon
-How to start up a random queue
-How to start up a custom random queue
-How to add additional entries to dungeon
(technically: its increasing rewards count. Even if u got it Capped for the week/day. you can still run the dungeon for no rewards)


Dailies:
4 man dungeons (make sure to do 6 random 4man queues a day! for exp, mesos, and materials)
event pop up (these will pop up twice every hour at xx:05 and xx:35. clear for lots of exp)
Sky Fortress Daily missions (rank up that reputation!)
Life stuff (Crafting, minding, farming, etc)

*assuming you are strong enough*
Chaos raids: (times are china time [gmt+8]. chaos Raid limits reset every day they are availible)
1st:Chaos Devilin (aka 黑胖 Black Fat) Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday
2nd: Captain Morc (aka 船长 captain) Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday
3rd: Chaos Magnus (混沌 老麦) Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday
4th: Chaos Balrog (混沌 不灭) Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday
Most important chaos raids atm: 1st(Easiest to clear. Leg weapon can be obtained randomly or after 24 clears) 4th(Gives Epic Ranked equips)

weeklies: (reset is every Chinese Friday.)
Sky Fortress Weekly missions
Sky Fortress dungeon Ranked boxes (important to get for crafting Sky-fortress legendary armors!)
Zakum Raid ranked boxes (If you afk, you still get the C ranked box. So do it)
Shadow lands Coin shop resets (so go farm more shadow coins! Note: good source of gems)

10man raids (Make sure to do 5 random queues a week!)
Main reason to do Normal 10man raids:
Get nice accessories, gem boxes, extra rewards for doing weekly 5 random queues And purple equipment to dismantle for matterials

Here is current list of 10man dungeons atm:

  1. 熏炎龙兽 : First raid (Flame Salamander)
  2. 迷宫集会堂 : Second raid (Kabo)
  3. 路贝里斯克 : Third raid (Magnus)
  4. 不灭神殿 : Fourth raid (Balrog)
  5. 符文圣殿: Fifth raid (Nutaman)
  6. 超链接之树: Sixth raid (Kandura)

Protip: If you wanna get 5 random raid queues done fast without the hassle of trying to get a higher-raid to work Force a First 10man raid.
Unequip some of your equips until your Equipment points are below 2630 but above 1710 and start a random 10man raid queue.
Make sure to re-equip everthing you unequiped after entering the raid.


First you gotta know how to Get skill points and Extra stat points…..

  1. Do all of the story quests. Large chunk of your extra-stat & skill points are trapped behind this
  2. Get 150 map quests(150 stars) done for total of 12 extra-stat points
  3. Each level up gets ya a skill point. so level up buddy~ (lvl 65 cap atm)
  4. Certain trophies will get ya extra-stat/skill points

Extra Stat build:
Pretty easy to decide a extra-stat build

Are you a normal person? if yes. Go main stat for your class.
str = knight, berserk, runeblader
luk = theif, assassin
int = wizard, priest, soulbinder
dex = archer, heavy-gunner

don't care about damage, and going full support?
Get all dat HP

Are you super rich and can afford all the Best equipment (with crit-dmg%) and Have Really high spec fashion gems equipped?(spent 2000$usd or more)
Crit-accuracy


Skill build:
Will add more here later. But just know that u get unlimited resets. so Go nuts with experimentation o3o


Important Factors:

Weapon: The core of your dps. This will limit how strong you potentially will be. Get a legendary Or better(epic)

Armour/Accessories: This is Your defense, hp and your main stats.

Additional properties (on your equipment): This will Boost ya where you need it. Make sure your Skill build agrees with the stats you pick. And make sure to Have at least 20% Defense penetration%(防御渗透) if you plan to do chaos raid/zakum

Fashion gems: A whole bunch of mainstat(Phy attack works too), if Wizard/priest/soulbinder go Magic attack instead

Gems (on ring,earring, pendant): Having plenty of Fighting force(战斗力) will greatly increase you dps, but only if you have the Necessary [Main-Stat] to back it up.
(If you are low on [Main-stat] due to lack of fashion gems, Its recommended that you use advanced [Main-stat] gems to compensate)

Combat pet: You get about 1/3 of your pets Combat power as Fighting force(战斗力) (not reflected in stat window) and they have their own set of Additional properties. GET A PURPLE-RANKED PET TO LVL50 ASAP

If I had to weight the above factors by importance….
Most important → Least important
Weapon, combat-Pet, gems and fashion gems = Additional properties, Armour/accessories
