The Benefits Of MapleStory Multiple Pets

Given there is an initial and ongoing investment to multiple pets it is often a difficult decision for your MapleStory account. Requiring players to purchase a cash shop item to unlock the ability to equip 3 pets, purchase the 3 pets themselves and then the ongoing cost of Water of Life revival it can quickly drain your available Reward Points or NX Cash. Importantly completing the quest must be done on individual characters so is generally only worth doing on your main character or a Meso farming character as you will have to purchase a new Pet Snack for each character.

The benefits may be worth it though for a daily player with the benefits of having multiple pets in MapleStory primarily a multiplier of the benefits that a single pet provides, this includes:

  • Loot: Multiple pets can result in increased efficiency of looting monster drops when training and improve your overall Meso rates per hour rate depending on your training map. While one pet is fairly effective the addition of extra pets ensures that all areas around your character are being looted at all times and results in less missed drops overall, particularly near corners of maps.
  • Auto-Buff: Some MapleStory classes have a significant number of buff skills that require regular casting to ensure your maximum damage or utility. With multiple you’ll have extra auto-buff pet skills available that lets your pets automatically cast these skills for you which allows you to remove that skill completely from your key binds. This frees up keyboard space but also means you won’t forget to have a vital skill activate for your character.

  • Stat Gain: While pets are intended as utility tools the small boosts in damage they can provide do add up when you have 3 of them. There are a number of pets that have set effects (similar to equipment) which when you equip pets of the same set provide an extra boost on top of the ability to equip additional pet equipment that can also offer attack benefits and scrolled for even further boosts.
  • Fashion: The true end game of MapleStory is often referred to as FashionStory, having 3 pets of the same theme is an impressive part of your character visuals that some in the community aim for.
