MapleStory – How To Get Potential Scrolls In Reboot

Last Updated on March 17, 2024 by Samuel Franklin

Learn how to get potential scrolls in Reboot and regular MapleStory servers with this comprehensive guide to all sources. With potential scrolls being critical to adding powerful potential to your equipment slots they are important to character damage progression although often confusing for new or returning players to find.

While non-Reboot servers have the ease of the auction house available players in Reboot will need to farm their own potential scrolls. With a range of options all players will have at least on viable avenue regardless of your current power level and activity preferences. This guide is based on my own personal experiences progressing through the MapleStory Reboot server with a list of all epic potential scroll sources and optimisation tips to maximise your scrolls earned. While there are many sources I recommend players focus their attention on current events, Legion Coin Shop, Bounty Portals and the Fairy Bros’ Daily Gift for consistent sources with low effort.

How To Get Epic Potential Scrolls List

Potential scrolls are available through the following sources in approximate order of usefulness, based on availability and difficulty. This list is focused on sources of epic potential scrolls given these are more valuable although some of these sources can also reward normal potential scrolls.

Potential Scroll Source Notes
Events Should only be considered after acquiring other important event items.
Legion Coin Shop Requires players to build up their account first in order to be a regular source and there are other important purchases here.
Yu Garden Shop (Reboot Only) A popular and consistent reboot method based around Yu Garden dailies.
Commerci Republic Quest Limited to one at the completion of the main quest line.
Fairy Bros’ Daily Gift Available on Day 20.
Bounty Portals Pollo and Fritto portals or Inferno Wolf portals within the Advanced Hunter Pouch reward.
Monster Collection A passive method from 6hr and 24hr explorations.
Elite Boss Can be actively hunted or passively spawned by staying in a single training location.
Sudden Missions Simple to complete tasks with a small chance of epic potential scrolls.
Transfer Hammer Allows players to transfer epic potential from another piece of equipment within 10 levels.
Ursus A regular game activity that can occasionally lead to potential scrolls.

How To Get Epic Potential Scrolls Detailed

Below I provide additional information on the list of sources above for players that want detailed explanations of each source. I recommend players tailor these options to one that suits their preferred game activities preferences with extra characters giving you some extra opportunities to use these epic potential scroll (epot) methods.

Events

Events are a recurring feature of MapleStory and there is always an event available or just around the corner. A common theme to these MapleStory events are coin collection and coin shops which rewards players for regularly monster hunting during the event period and have a number of useful account progression items. This makes events a consistent source of epic potential scrolls although players will need to balance this against competing priorities from the coin shops that might be harder to obtain outside of events.

maplestory-legion-coin-shop

Legion Coin Shop

Offering 100% epic potential scrolls for 300 Legion Coins this can be a reliable method to acquire potential on your equipment provided you have established a reasonable MapleStory Legion/Union. If you have hit a roadblock to progression with your main character shifting your focus to building your Legion (and Link Skills) can be a reasonable option to progress and build up a stockpile of coins for all sorts of useful account items in the process.

Yu Garden Shop (Reboot Only)

A Reboot server exclusive method where players convert Yu Garden Coins from completing Yu Garden dailies into epic potential scrolls. Costing 30 coins each to acquire these are 50% scrolls and players can earn up to 6 per week if they complete every single daily quest each day. These daily quests are available from the daily quest board and players must complete the Yu Garden prequest to unlock the full number of quests. Primarily being based around hunting various monsters and obtaining item drops these quests are relatively easy to complete that makes it a popular Reboot source.

Commerci Republic

Players will be rewarded with a 100% epic potential scroll from Cgynus after completing the full Commerci Republic quest line. While this can take around two hours to complete it does provide reasonable levelling experience for its intended level range (140-150) although the scroll itself is untradeable so it may not be suitable in all situations depending on the target equipment piece.

maplestory-fairy-bros-new

Fairy Bros’ Daily Gift

On day 20 of the daily gift system players can earn themselves a 50% epic potential scroll to use on their account. This is an easy method given it ties in with your other daily activities although players are limited to only one per month that makes it difficult to acquire potential scrolls at scale with this method alone.

Bounty Portals

These Pollo and Fritto portals or Inferno Wolf portals spawn randomly while players are training and can reward a 50% epic potential scroll from the Advanced Hunter Pouch reward. While it can take some time and experience at the challenges to consistently earn an Advanced Hunter Pouch this is a passive farming option that works alongside your normal training gameplay.

maplestory-monster-collection

Monster Collection

Requiring some investment and patience the Monster Collection system of MapleStory offers a chance of epic potential scrolls in 6 hour and 24 hour explorations. With Monster Collection being a reliable source of Maple Points and other items for the long term player investment in this system is worthwhile with a small number of boxes for completing collections also having a chance to reward these scrolls although they are once off. My recommended collections to complete are the 24hr Ephenia (Ludas Lake Page 3, bottom line), 6hr Black Viking Line (Victoria Island Page 4, bottom line) and 6hr Green Trixter (Ludas Lake Page 5, top line).

Elite Boss

Elite boss farming as either part of your core training regime or as its own separate activity can lead to plenty of useful account rewards including 50% epic potential scrolls from the rare treasure chests that drop on kill. This does require players to have sufficient power already to kill the boss that spawns although once spawned generally other players will come quickly to farm the boss as well.

Sudden Missions

While a low chance the ease of completing these sudden missions that appear from time to time while training means that they shouldn’t be ignored. Similar to other methods on this list of how to get potential scrolls it can be a fairly passive while doing your regular training as these challenges include defeating a certain number of monsters, activating a run, reaching combo kill milestones, entering portals or defeating elite monsters.

maplestory-transfer-hammer

Transfer Hammer

An often overlooked option to acquire epic potential on an item is the transfer hammer route which requires players to find an item within 10 levels of their target item or create a multiple transfer hammer chain of items within 10 levels of each other. While not possible on all equipment types due to equipment availability if you find an epic potential equipment piece while training from monsters don’t sell it to a NPC before considering if it could be useful to you later. In addition to regular monsters players can regularly acquire epic potential items from boss fights, bonus stages of elite boss kills or Rune of Riches. For assistance in using the transfer hammer and the specifics of how it works you can refer to MapleStory’s transfer hammer guide.

maplestory-ursus-shop

Ursus

One of the few options for those wondering where to buy potential scrolls directly the Ursus Shop (Aisha) near the Ursus entrance offers 50% scrolls for the right materials. These materials are earned for Ursus runs and while it will take at least 15 successful runs (just over a week) to acquire the necessary materials its an activity you will be doing regularly for Mesos anyway and may already have available if you fight Ursus regularly.

Mu Lung Dojo

A late game option for acquiring epic potential scrolls the Dojo Points Shop allows you to exchange 15,000 points for a 50% scroll (maximum 1 purchase for week). While you can earn a small number of Dojo Points for participation the bulk will come from finishing in the top percentages of the player base so this is only a reliable option for characters that are already powerful.
