    Hi, it's me, the map stealer. From messing up training schedules, bossing timers, and causing unnecessary drama over map ownership... and here's how I do it! MapleLegends implemented a map owner system to prevent KS wars (#nostalgia) so normies would feel safe in the maps they grabbed with their grubby fingers.

    How does it work?
    When you kill a monster in a map, you attain map owner status and keep it for at least the next 5 minutes. When you leave the map (Cash shop, Free Market, Disconnect), you lose map owner status. If you don't kill a monster within 5 minutes, you also lose map owner status.

    It is then passed to the next player who is currently attacking the map. For example, let's say I'm in a party with kaat, and I have map owner. I DC, she's still attacking, she gets map owner. You can check the status by typing @mapowner and seeing the popup message.

    What does this mean?
    If someone else has map owner, you cannot attack in the same map as them without their permission. If you don't trust them entirely, get a screenshot of their verbal permission. Say you're hunting for a boss, and you have map owner, the visitor is required to leave the boss alone, as you have the right to report them for kill stealing. When the 10 minutes are up while the current map owner is afking, the map becomes stealable even if it still has their ign as map owner.


    1) If you see me use magic armor in your map, I'm not doing it because I need that buff, I'm checking for map owner without typing it. Sneaky sneaky... You can put commands in your macros, so that whenever you use the skill, it enters the command. It is not visible to other players!


    2) Whenever you enter a desired map, make sure to attack a monster, any monster, to get that special map owner status!

    3) If someone is in there already, check map owner, as sometimes they're in the map, and they don't have map owner themselves. Now grab the map!

    4) If you are super desperate and they have map owner, remember their name and current time, and check back in ~10 minutes, and try to secretly attack a monster if you think they're afk.

    Patience is key! And remember to have fun!

    Feedback is welcome!
