MapleStory Best Medals & How To Get Them

Last Updated on March 18, 2024 by Samuel Franklin

This guide details the best medals currently available in MapleStory and how to get them for your characters to maximise damage. While not as powerful as other equipment slots the huge number of medals available and some being no longer available can make this a confusing decision for players.

Serving as an important step in account progression medals are rewarded for your MapleStory achievements with the current best available medals being the Seven Day Monster Parker followed closely by the Antellion Guardian. For players that want an easier to acquire medal I recommend the Ursus Defeater King medal as an alternative. The stats of these medals and how to acquire them is detailed below to help players add these to their equipment collection with all of these medals available for Reboot and non-Reboot players.

Seven Day Monster Parker

  • +7 All Stat (STR, DEX, INT, LUK)
  • +7 Weapon Attack
  • +7 Magic Attack
  • +10% Ignore Enemy Defence (IED)

The ultimate medal for MapleStory bossing due to its unique IED stat that is not available on any other medal and how critical this stat is for defeating the highest tiers of bosses.

The problem with this medal is the effort required to obtain it with players having to complete each day of Monster Park 77 times (a total of 539 runs!). Given you can only do 2 free runs per day this is potentially a nearly two year investment per character although spending Meso (in Reboot) or Maple Points (Non-Reboot) can bring this timeframe down to just over 2 months. For this reason I recommend most players only invest this time or currency on their bossing main that they intend to take into end game.

Antellion Guardian

  • +15 All Stat (STR, DEX, INT, LUK)
  • +8 Weapon Attack
  • +8 Magic Attack
  • +500 Max HP
  • +500 Max MP

For most MapleStory players this will be the medal you use given it is relatively easy to acquire and is actually slightly stronger than the Seven Day Monster Parker for training against mobs due to the higher all stat, attack and HP/MP.  In order to obtain this medal players need to complete the Masteria Through Time blockbuster storyline which will take 3 to 4 hours to complete although also rewards a free android and decent experience.

  • +7 All Stat (STR, DEX, INT, LUK)
  • +7 Weapon Attack
  • +7 Magic Attack

An alternative to the Antellion Guardian medal this option sacrifices some power but is significantly lower in time investment given Ursus is a regular daily activity for most players anyway. This medal is often overlooked and given it not far from the best medal in raw stats (the damage difference on my character is only 8k) it serves as an easy to acquire alternative. In order to unlock this medal players need to defeat Ursus 10 times and then claim the medal from Jawad as you do for other Ursus rewards which can take as little as a week if running Ursus daily.
