Maplestory 2 Ultimate Trophy Guide
This Maplestory 2 Ultimate Trophy Guide is focused on fast, painless trophy gathering, and general trophy knowledge. Many people need help with reaching 500 trophies for the skill point reward. For this Maplestory 2 Ultimate Trophy Guide we are going to assume you are level 50, have completed the epic quest line, and have access to rotors taxi service (if you don’t, regular taxis are fine too). Some things such as mainline story quest trophies may not be included. The general amount of MS2 trophies you should have from playing casually without active trophy hunting should be around 200-250. The information for this Maplestory 2 Trophy Guide was compiled by Doom and Odee with the goal of helping players reach 300 and 500 Personal Trophies as fast as possible.

There are trophies for interacting with certain items inside homes. Each of these items net one trophy, and there are (at the time of writing this) 40+ attainable trophies.
The best way of acquiring these would be to go to the rankings in-game, going to the star architect section and visiting a trophy house.
When you look for which items are interactable, they’ll usually be in rows. All you need to do is go through all the items and press space to operate them, and the trophy for that item will be yours.
Don’t forget to nominate the person you’ve visited!
People also set up AFK systems for the various moving trophies (walking, swimming, climbing). They’re really helpful if you want a few extra trophies while you sleep or AFK. If you aren’t looking to be an avid trophy hunter and just care about getting the skill point, then I wouldn’t bother messing with those things. Since they aren’t the fastest way of getting trophies, I won’t include anything else on them.
Thrown Item Trophies
All around the maple world, there are Items that can be interacted with, and can be used to attack. There are more than 30 that each give an achievement, all you need to do is attack with them once. You do not need to hit a monster for this to count.
Here, I’ll list all of the items that can be used, and where to find them, along with a screenshot of what they look like.
Note: I’ll only be including one map in which they can be found. There are multiple places where you can find many of these, but for convenience’s sake, I’ll only include one.
In no particular order, I tried to make it so you visit the least maps possible.

In libraries and other places, you can pick up books that will give you trophies. Some books are more rare than others, but generally you’ll find all of them within 5-10 minutes. If you don’t feel like spending the time to do this, you can also buy the books from the black market and get the trophies. Some (2) of the trophies are set trophies, so you’ll get a trophy for collecting all of the ones in the set.

Life Skill Trophies
Life Skills, aside from crafting things, also give trophies for each level up you get. Since there are 10 categories of life skills, you’ll get an achievement for every time one of these levels up. Ignore pet taming mastery if you’re solely going for the trophies here.
Since they’re pretty fast on leveling up early on, you can get a big amount of trophies from this for a few minutes of your time. This isn’t a MS2 Life Skills guide, so I won’t really go into detail. Life skills are pretty simple anyway. Keep up the life skills daily, and you’ll find yourself sitting on a stack of life skill level trophies.
Make sure you’re getting the 1100 points for your interior design level, you can just put down furniture for the 1100 points and take them away after claiming the box if you have an A E S T H E T I C you’re going for.
Elite Bosses and World Bosses all give trophies for being defeated. World bosses in particular give trophies for being last hit. Elite bosses can be soloed, world bosses will have to be done with other players. Together, these account for about 40+ Trophies.
*Make sure you stick around after killing Lo and Moomoo or Toh and Googoo, Lo and Toh spawn after the big guy is killed.
*Some MS2 bosses give trophies for being hit by specific attacks.
I’ll list the Elite bosses here (not including dungeon ones), and where they can be found. You can find MS2 World Boss spawn locations and schedule on our Leveling Guide.
World Bosses can be found on the main map by their icon .
Elite Bosses can be found on the minimap by their icon .

Most of the dungeons in this game have trophies for clearing them. Some dungeons have extra trophies for clearing other objectives in them. I won’t go through clearing the other objectives, since some aren’t the fastest trophies to get here. You can use the trophy search for more details on the dungeon you’re looking for (be sure to do this before starting any dungeon, so you don’t miss out on any potential trophies). In total these will amount to 50+ Trophies.
Since we currently have a daily and weekly dungeon cap, you’ll want to do these after you’ve capped for the day or week, or else you’ll take up a potential good reward from a useful dungeon. Or just use your runs regardless of cap. I’m not your boss.
There are quests that have trophies tied to them. To easily see where you have to go, in your trophies menu search up “quest” and complete all the quests that have a clickable link. These links will open up the quest log with the appropriate quest selected. Use this to guide you to where you need to go.
Consumable Item Trophies
There are many consumable things that you can use to gain trophies. Some of these can be obtained from fishing boxes. Some can be obtained from Cooking and Beverage assistant crafting, which I have no experience in (because I don’t have the merets for it). I’ll list the ones that can be obtained without merets.
The reason this is down here is because the most efficient way of gaining them is through mesos, and if you’re not willing to put down around 2-3 mil to get all of them, you can reliably just skip this part.
There is an exception for some of the items, because some of them are cheaper than others. Mostly depends on method of acquisition or the current black market price going for them.
Punch in Lith Harbor sells 3 juices that give 1 achievement each.
Charoo, found on the left side of the Trap Master or Sole Survivor minigames sells 4 consumables that can be used for 1 trophy each.Unfortunately, you’ll have to have lost the minigames to access him.
The craft shop found in most main cities sells 3 berries that give 1 achievement for consuming each, and 1 for consuming all 3 (Increments of x1, x50, x100, x500, x1000). Totals up to 20 Trophies.
Black Market/Fishing Box Items
If you’re free on the mesos side, and want a decent amount of trophies, this is for you. Just purchase the cheapest ones you can find from the black market and use them. (Increments of x1, x50, x100, x500, x1000) I wouldn’t recommend buying more than one though.
A few of these can also be obtained from the current Mapleopoly event if you land on Treasure Trove.

Trophy Hunting Tips
Turn on friendly NPCs on the minimap to make things easier for yourself. You can mouse over the icons on the minimap to see what they are.
Pressing on the + sign will show you all the prerequisite trophies you need to get the set trophies. You can hover over the trophy icons to see what tiers the trophies go up to, and click on the prerequisites to see what you need to do in order to gain that trophy.
You can also favorite trophies and filter them by favorite in the dropdown menu in order to keep up with specific trophies you’re trying to do.
For trophies I couldn’t fit into the other misc categories.

Opening up the map and searching up the enemy type will give you a list of places where that type of enemy spawns, including bosses and dungeon bosses.
Each round of Dark Descent completed gives you one trophy. It’s a challenge dungeon with different challenges every round, so either find a guide somehow or go through it strategically.

Buy every MS2 mount from the vendors in Henesys, Perion, and Kerning City. Some mounts are cheap (100k) some are expensive (1mil). If you’re a super trophy hunter and a big spender, there are also mounts in Tria (locked behind some difficult trophies). The mounts in Perion are locked behind hunting achievements.

Adding certain pets to your pet album (summoning them, not just catching them) net one trophy.

Some of these (*2) cost merets. The rest can be done with mesos, using the trophy unlocked hairstyles and eyes.

Save a hair

- hair to a saved hair
- hair to a special hair
You can place down some things for achievements. They’re assistant related things.
PLEASE make sure you’re only placing these three. I made the mistake of placing some other ones, and using up merets accidentally. Don’t be stupid like I was.
Do all your interior design quests
Use the My House button to go home (x1, x10, x100)
Nominate someone’s home (x1, x10, x30, x100, x300)
Use your house bank (x1, x10, x50)

Every instrument has its own trophy tied to it where you have to gain 300/6,000/30,000/etc performance experience. There are 5 MS2 instruments you can obtain with mesos or through events:
- Acoustic guitar
Gain performance mastery experience for these instruments for some ez (AFK) trophies.
There are also two trophies for playing a specific premade song:
- Play MapleStory OST (Maplestory 1, not Maplestory 2)
- Play Mabinogi OST
TIPS for gaining performance mastery experience:
- You will gain 1 mastery experience per second played (so 1 minute of performance is 60 exp)
- Premade songs that you buy from the vendor in Tria will give you exactly 1 exp per second performed.
- Custom songs have a cap that varies depending on what tier of music score you used. It does not matter if you make a 5 minute song, the performance exp will cap.
- I recommend auto-playing the premade songs rather than custom songs to be time efficient.
- The song I recommend is Debussy - Clair de Lune (brought in Tria from the music man)
- Play it three times on each instrument and you’ll get the first tier of the trophy.
- But you can play whatever you want man, Mabinogi OST #1 is the bomb.
Just do fishing related things and you’ll get a few nice trophies. Not exactly the fastest trophies though.
Shadow World PvP Zones
Kill Elite mobs and enter into the portals, and complete the objective. Generally this is something for a party or a more geared player to do. Buy Life Drain Lapentiers from the Red Star shop to make your life easier. This will give like 5 trophies right off the bat.
Killing a player and being killed by a player both give a trophy.
Trophies you can complete while you afk or when your menu navigating (e.g. crafting).
