      Introduction

      Once upon a time, Nexon teamed up with Wizards of the Coast to publish a MapleStory collectible trading card game. Packs of the Maplestory iTCG had special codes (on at least one card) that could be redeemed in-game for various items. These in-game items were used for crafting special equipment, many of which have now outlived their BiS status and are now used for cosmetic "anvil" purposes. This guide will cover the current way of obtaining equipment introduced with the iTCG system as well as the relevant badge exchange quest.

      Prequests

      Like most of the deeper content in the game, there are prequests required. You will only need to complete three quests minimally. Click here if you need video help navigating the forest.

      Lv. 90 - Welcome To New Leaf City!
      Speak to Icebyrd Slimm and complete his quiz, this unlocks the rest of the quests in town and the Phantom Forest, which you can all mostly ignore.

      Lv. 112 - The Fallen Woods
      Speak to Taggrin at Dead Man's Gorge and accept his quest to collect 25 Phantom Seeds. Defeat 25 of both Eastern & Western Phantom Trees. I recommend the Haunted Hill & Crossroads maps which are both immediately accessible from Bent Tree.

      After completing The Fallen Woods, there won't be an active quest from Taggrin until you have the Map of Phantom Forest. However, you can retrieve the map early by travelling to Jack Barricade without doing any other quests.

      Lv. 112 - The Right Path
      After receiving the Map of Phantom Forest from Jack Barricade, return to Taggrin and speak with him.

      After completing The Right Path, you do not have to do any additional quests. Joko's badge redemption exchange and Fiona's item crafting are available after completing it.

      However, if you wish to retrieve the Marker of Heroism to skip past the Valley of Heroes jump quest, you need to finish additional quests. This is only useful if you plan on extensively farming for badges. You do not need this item for anything related to the exchange quest, it's purely for convenience. You can either farm badges in the Phantom Forest maps, or you can simply do the Valley of Heroes jump quest to travel to the Crimsonwood Mountain maps.

      Please attempt to follow this in order and heed my recommendations in order to avoid a headache. This questline is very annoying due to the map layouts, low spawn rates, and just simply walking. Teleporting between maps is generally restricted within the Phantom Forest & Crimsonwood Mountain aside from the use of Town Return Scrolls. You may teleport freely within New Leaf City, Bigger Ben, and the Krakian Jungle maps however. To begin, you still need to have completed Welcome To New Leaf City to unlock all the other quests in the area.

      Lv. 98 - Subani's Legacy - Discovery
      Speak to John Barricade in Bigger Ben's Lobby and accept his quest to defeat 100 Killa Bees.

      Lv. 100 - Lost!
      Speak to Elpam Gorlab in New Leaf City and accept his quest to retrieve 30 Elpam Magnets while defeating 60 Fire Tusks.

      Lv. 102 - ReVersal
      Speak to Elpam Gorlab in New Leaf City and accept his quest to retrieve 60 Temporal Fragments while defeating 120 Electrophants. I recommend doing this quest at the same time as Subani's Legacy - Transgression.

      Lv. 102 - Subani's Legacy - Transgression
      Speak to John Barricade in Bigger Ben's Lobby and accept his quest to retrieve 50 Hyper Glyphs while defeating 100 Electrophants. I recommend doing this quest at the same time as ReVersal.

      Lv. 106 - Subani's Legacy - Deliverance
      Speak to John Barricade in Bigger Ben's Lobby and accept his quest to retrieve 25 Map Pieces while defeating 50 I.AM.ROBOT's.

      Lv. 112 - The Brewing Storm
      Speak to the Nameless Warrior in Phantom Road and accept his quest to retrieve 15 Stormbreaker Badges while defeating 100 Stormbreakers. You can either do this quest while in the Phantom Forest, or you can wait until you're in Crimsonwood Mountain doing the next quest.

      Lv. 112 - Finding Jack
      Speak to John Barricade in Bigger Ben's Lobby and accept his quest to deliver a letter to Jack Barricade. Navigate through the forest until you reach Lower Ascent. Jack is located in the Cavern of Pain visible on the left side of the Lower Ascent. I recommend doing The Brewing Storm while you are here in the Crimsonwood Mountain maps.

      Lv. 112 - Lost In Translation 1
      Speak to Jack Barricade in the Cavern of Pain and accept his quest to deliver the Coded Communique to John Barricade in Bigger Ben's Lobby.

      Lv. 112 - Storming The Castle
      Speak to the Nameless Warrior in Phantom Road and accept his quest to defeat 75 Windraiders, Nightshadows, and Firebrands. I recommend staying in Phantom Road to complete the Windraiders and however many Nightshadows you kill during that time. I would then suggest the Crossroads map immediate from Bent Tree for the remaining Nightshadows and Firebrands. You will receive the Crimsonwood Keystone upon completion needed for Stemming The Tide.

      Lv. 112 - Lost In Translation 2
      Speak to John Barricade in Bigger Ben's Lobby and accept his quest to deliver the Coded Communique to Elpam Gorlab.

      Lv. 112 - Lost In Translation 3
      Speak to John Barricade in Bigger Ben's Lobby and accept his quest to return back to Jack Barricade in the Cavern of Pain. I recommend finishing Storming The Castle before returning to Jack Barricade.

      Lv. 112 - Stemming The Tide
      Speak to Jack Barricade in the Cavern of Pain and accept his quest to retrieve the Crimsonwood Keystone. You should have received the Crimsonwood Keystone as a reward from Storming The Castle earlier, meaning you can complete this instantly.

      Lv. 120 - The Marker Of Heroism
      Speak to John Barricade in Bigger Ben's Lobby and accept his quest to retrieve 1 Typhon Feather while defeating 100 Typhons. Additionally, you will need 10 Gold Ore and 1 Power Crystal Ore in order to complete the quest and craft the Marker Of Heroism.

      Once you've obtained the Marker of Heroism, you're able to skip the Valley of Heroes jump quest by pressing up on the statues. There is no portal indicator, just press up on them.

      Joko's Badge Redemption

      Joko's Badge Redemption, also known as the Exchange Quest, trades your various badges for a variety of items. Like most aspects of the game, you are essentially testing your luck against a lottery. You could potentially trade in 1000 badges and not get the crafting materials that you need for whatever it is you want. On average, I've been able to get at least 1 of every crafting item within 20 badge exchanges. I would recommend grabbing about 30 badges (for solo rolls) just so you don't have to re-farm anything.

      It shouldn't be difficult to figure out, but the badges drop from the corresponding monster.
      • Crimson Guardian - Crimson Heart
      • Firebrand - Firebrand Badge
      • Nightshadow - Nightshadow Badge
      • Stormbreaker - Stormbreaker Badge
      • Windraider - Windraider Badge

      Nexon says that Taos are dropped by the following monsters, but I don't believe Leprechauns or Baby Typhons actually drop Taos. They have a much lower drop rate but it's potentially faster than doing the exchange quest for them. I'll list what I've personally confirmed.
      • Bigfoot - Tao of Harmony/Sight/Shadow
      • Headless Horseman - ?
      • Crimson Guardian - Tao of Harmony
      • Typhon - Tao of Sight
      • Baby Typhon - ?
      • Firebrand - Tao of Shadow
      • Windraider - Tao of Harmony
      • Nightshadow - Tao of Shadow
      • Stormbreaker - Tao of Harmony
      • Elderwraith - Tao of Shadow
      • Leprechaun - ?

      monsters392.png = leftover317.png
      monsters387.png = leftover313.png
      monsters389.png = leftover314.png
      monsters391.png = leftover311.png
      monsters386.png = leftover312.png

      As said earlier, You can either farm badges in the Phantom Forest maps, or you can travel to the Crimsonwood Mountain maps. The former refers to the Forgotten Path, Phantom Road, and both Crossroads. The latter includes just about everywhere in the area sans Typhons & JQ maps. However, Crimson Guardians are only found at Upper Ascent.

      This is literally just copy/pasted from the Return To Masteria patch notes, but I can confirm myself everything on here is correct.

      Availability

      While much of Masteria has fallen wayside or otherwise been killed off, our iTCG crafting somehow found a way to survive. Unfortunately, not every item or system has made it out alive. That isn't to say these equips are completely unobtainable somewhere in-game, they just aren't available through this system anymore.
      • With the removal of Crimsonwood Keep, our dear friend Ridley was removed as well. Ridley had an exchange quest of his own that involved trading Boss Parts for a variety of interesting equipment that is no longer available.
      • With the removal of the Haunted Mansion, crafting materials needed to upgrade Stirgeman related equips are completely unavailable.
      • Additionally, Taru related items are unable to be upgraded as well as the Taru Spirit Feather item wasn't added to any exchange quest, however the basic versions are still obtainable through Joko's badge redemption.

      Crafting Through John Barricade

      Fairly straight forward, obtain crafting materials from badge redemption, take them to John Barricade. He'll give you a Forging Manual in exchange for the crafting materials. Once you have the Forging Manual, take it to Spindle in New Leaf City. Spindle will tell you the actual crafting materials needed, at which point you can bring to him and actually make your item. The only exceptions are Bosshunter Items that John will restore himself. Simple enough right?

      Fairly straight forward, obtain crafting materials from badge redemption, take them to Professor Foxwit. He'll give you a Forging Manual in exchange for the crafting materials. Once you have the Forging Manual, take it to Spindle in New Leaf City. Spindle will tell you the actual crafting materials needed, at which point you can bring to him and actually make your item.

      [​IMG][​IMG]

      Crafting Materials

      For Foxwits equipment, you'll need multiple items from Joko's Badge Redemption. Here are the relevant items that you'll be looking for. Thankfully you only need Nightshadow badges for these.

      (1) - Nightshadow Badge
      • Dark Matter
      • Vorticular Gyro
      • Blinking Dingbat
      • Zeta Residue
      • Black Versal Materia

      Crafting Through The Glimmer Man

      Previously, you would need to craft a specific item with the Glimmer Man, but due to the inclusion of the Materia Orb in Joko's badge redemption, you can completely skip him and go straight to Spindle to redeem your choice of equipment. However, the option to craft the Materia Orb through the Glimmer Man is still present and the single material needed from the exchange quest is still available, so if you feel so inclined to waste your time, you may do so.

      Glimmer Man's Materia Orb

      Materia Orb
      White Versal Material, 7 Black Crystals

      Glimmer Man's Equipment

      Andromeda Bow
      Materia Orb

      Astral Blade

      Crafting Materials

      Again, you may completely forgo crafting the Materia Orb and simply obtain it straight away.

      (1) - Fireband Badge
      • White Versal Materia
      • Materia Orb
      Crafting Through Adonis

      So this one's a bit different. A few of the items available through Adonis are item upgrades that still go through the crafting process, think of the initial equips as just crafting materials. Additionally, Adonis has his own exchange quest, similar to how the Ridley Statue would have worked had Nexon remembered to keep it around. You obtain Stone Denari through Joko's badge redemption and pay Adonis with it to spin the RNG wheel for a random reward.

      Adonis' Upgraded Equipment

      Black Crystal Blade
      Crystal Blade, One-Handed Sword Forging Manual, One-Handed Sword Forging Stimulator, 50 Black Crystal, Zakum Diamond

      Hard Hat
      Miner's Hat, 10 Boomer Core, 5 Batteries, 1 Power Crystal, 10 Silver Plate, Zakum Diamond

      Shroud of Zakum
      Cloak of Corruption, Ridley's Book of Rituals, 50 Dark Crystal, Naricain Jewel, LeFay Jewel, Zakum Diamond

      Crafting Through Fiona

      Speak with Fiona in Dead Man's Gorge, she will offer to upgrade or craft a variety of weapons for you. However, these item's have an absolutely ridiculous crafting cost. A few of these items are available through Joko's badge redemption without having to go through Fiona's crafting or upgrading process.

      Fiona's Equipment

      Ange de la Mort
      1 Tao of Sight, Jack O'Lantern, 5 Typhon Feathers, 5 Crimsonwood, 10 Soiled Rags,
      1 Black Crystal, 5 Sapphire, 5 Opal, 5 Emerald, 1 Million Meso

      Crafting Balanced Furies

      If for some reason you ctrl+f'd this whole thing just looking for Balanced Furies and cbf to read Fiona's section, this is dedicated solely to crafting Balanced Furies.

      Q: What materials will I need?

      You will need:
      • 1 Tao of Shadows
      • 1 Tao of Sight
      • 1 Tao of Harmony
      • 100 Black Crystals
      • 30 Typhon Feathers
      • 1 Million Mesos
      Yes. That is correct. 100 black crystals for 1 Balanced Fury set. Speak to Fiona in Dead Man's Gorge to craft them after completing the relevant prequests.

      Q: How do I get the taos?

      Speak to Joko after completing the relevant prequests and redeem badges until you get what you want. Tao's are also dropped by mobs occasionally.

      (2) Each - Windraider Badge, Stormbreaker Badge, Nightshadow Badge, Firebrand Badge
      • Tao of Shadows
      • Tao of Sight
      • Tao of Harmony
      Q: Is it even worth it?

      No. Use Crystal Ilbis instead, they are a single attack lower than Balanced Furies and take much less effort to make.

      Final Thoughts

      Crafting is a very tedious process, and like most things in this game, it is locked behind a few prequests in an area many people may have completely forgotten about or simply don't even visit. However, most of these equips look pretty badass so they make for neat anvils.

      Is beauty worth it? Always.

      Many guides for iTCG crafting have fallen aside elsewhere on the internet, something I found very frustrating while I was trying to craft things myself. Hopefully this stays relevant because while I'll attempt to maintain upkeep, I really don't want to rewrite the entire thing if crafting gets reworked again.

      Also bring back muthafuckin' Ridley. I need my lore.

      Big thanks to Spadow for extracting all the item previews, it was a huge list and he replied with "bring it on" without questioning anything first. He was curious afterwards though, hah.
