MapleStory Set Effects - Equipment

July 9, 2024

MapleStory Set Effects are bonus stats applied to your character when you equip specific items that belong to a set, boosting their damage further. This guide will display the most common set effects and their bonus stats that you receive once you equip all items in the set.

Equipping full sets of equipment is important in making sure your Character gets extra damage boosts. Set Effects were introduced after MapleStory's Big Bang patch, making many equipment items obsolete.

Many Set Effects have different tiers depending on how many pieces of equipment you have equipped. You can have multiple Set Effects in place at once.

There are also a few items called "Lucky Items", which act as one piece in any set you have equipped. Check out our MapleStory Progression Guide for which sets you want to look out for.

Set Effects also stack, so the bonus you get from 2 Items equipped gets added to the bonus you get from 3 Items equipped.
