    May, 2024 - This guide has been updated! Now with more updated information, and guidance. Please see: Krythan's Washing Gear Guide | Efficiently Buying and Scrolling for INT

    What are the most common equips. that are used for washing gear? Aka, what item should I be owl-ing for?

    Intro


    So, you're planning to wash a character? Time to get all the INT you can get your hands on. This means scrolling, buying, and borrowing INT gear. Here's a list of the most common INT gear equipment.

    Washing on a budget? Read suggestions in this comment.

    If you're not familiar with the concept of washing, or just want to learn more, I recommend reading section "6. Washing" in the Getting Started guide.

    Weapons
    Level 0: [​IMG] Red or Blue Maple Flag, +0-2 INT, 7 slots
    • Obtainable from events. Slighter cheaper to scroll due to the fact that Sword Scrolls are more affordable than Wand Scrolls.
    Level 0: [​IMG] Sword, 7 slots
    Level 8: [​IMG] Wooden Wand, 7 slots
    • Sold in the Ellinia Weapon Shop. Equip-able by any class. Players will often go through a few of them before landing a Wand for Magic Att. 10% scroll.
    Level 48: [​IMG] Diao Chan Sword, +0-2 INT, 7 slots
    • Dropped by Cloud Fox. Relatively easy to scroll. Alternatively, the Heart Wand is another popular choice, but requires level 54.

    Hats
    Level 0: [​IMG] Blue Maple Bandana or [​IMG] Maple Bandana Blue. +0-3 all stats, 7 slots.
    • Only available during the Anniversary Event. Often available in the Free Market. For a more affordable option, see the other Maple Bandanas which provide up to +3 bonuses at a more affordable price.
    Level 10: [​IMG] Black Bandana +0-2 INT, 7 slots.
    • These are dropped by various mobs and can be obtained from Gachapon. More rare on the market.
    Level 10: [​IMG] Green Bandana, 10 slots.
    • With additional slots, the Green Bandana offers an option for those who want to test their luck with scrolls. Dropped by Leprechaun.
    Level 20: [​IMG] Purple Wisconsin +0-2 INT, 7 slots.
    • These are obtained from Gachapon but can be found in the Free Market for a modest price.
    Level 50: [​IMG] Zakum Helmet, +13-17 INT, untradeable
    • The Zakum Helmet is a relatively affordable option, that gives up to a whopping +17 INT and 10 slots. At the time of writing, AFK Zak service is around ~15m. Just remember to do the Zakum Prequest beforehand! You could also consider any of the Scarlion or Targa Hats (with the INT version being the best) - they're available later then Zakum (80), but have a much easier prequest. Are you an attacker? Make sure you're not scrolling your end-game helm for INT, as you can only hold one of each of these items.
    Gloves
    Level 10: [​IMG] Yellow Work Gloves, +0-2 INT, 5 slots
    • These may be obtained from the quest Protect Luca's Farm on Maple Island. These are also dropped by Cheap Amplifiers. Gloves for Magic Attack scrolls are one of the more expensive INT scrolls, so scrolling these will not be cheap.
    Level 10: [​IMG] Green Mittens, 6 slots.
    • The 'budget' version of Brown Work Gloves, with 6 slots.
    Level 10: [​IMG] Brown Work Gloves, 7 slots.
    • While these gloves a higher possible INT due to their 7 slots instead of the standard 5, they're highly desired for endgame attackers, making them very expensive. The scrolls are also very expensive. Not recommended.
    Level 20: [​IMG] Red Marker, +1-3 int, 5 slots
    • Obtainable through Gachapon. A more affordable option for those willing to compromise.
    Level 20: [​IMG] Yellow Marker, 7 slots
    • Same as the Brown Work Gloves. Theoretically they have a higher max INT due to the improved 7 slots, but the cost of the item and scrolls make it very expensive.
    Level 50: [​IMG] Goddess Wristband, +4 INT*, 5 slots, untradeable
    • This item was buffed in MapleLegends*, giving a nice +4 INT. May be worth running the Orbis PQ 30 times for this reward. This item is untradeable, meaning there's no resell value, so think about it before sinking a few pricey Gloves for Magic Attack scrolls into it. Please note, at the time of writing, the maplelegends.com/lib site does not show the correct stats.

    Overall

    Level 20
    : [​IMG] [​IMG] Bathrobes, 10 slots
    • They can be purchased for 30,000 mesos from Momoyo in Zipangu inside the Spa. Most popular option as they offer 10 slots, and are easy to resell should you scroll it well. Try to hit at least a 10% scroll, then add as many 30% scrolls as you dare before finishing with 60%. For a more budget friendly alternative, hit it with a few 70%'s and call it a day.

    Earrings

    Level 15
    : [​IMG] Single Earring / [​IMG] Amethyst Earring, 5 Slots
    • Often scrolled due to the fact it is easily obtainable from Henesys Market for 7,000. Cheap and easy to obtain, so often players will try to land a cheaper 10% scroll before applying the more expensive 30% and 60% scrolls.
    Level 30: [​IMG] Red Emerald Earrings, +0-3 INT, 5 slots
    • More expensive that single earrings, but come with up to a nice +3 int. You can find versions with +2 INT for good prices. Obtainable through Gachapon.
    Level 80: [​IMG] Gold Emerald Earrings, +4-5 INT, 5 slots
    • An expensive alternative at higher levels. They are a rare drop from The Boss and Maverick B, but highly contested by endgame players, thus quite pricey.

    Shoes

    Level 10
    : [​IMG] White Christmas Sock, +0-2 INT, 7 slots
    • Obtainable during the Christmas Event, these socks come with INT and are wearable for all classes.
    Level 30: [​IMG] Squishy Shoes, +0-2 all stats, +3 speed, 5 slots, untradeable
    • Obtainable from Kerning PQ, either from dropping from King Slime or from KPQ-ing 20 times. Since these are +1 all stats, these are pretty decent shoes to wear, though running Kerning PQ just to get these shoes may not be the most efficient.
    Level 50: [​IMG] Yellow Snowshoes, +2-4 INT, 7 slots
    • The ultimate INT shoes. Expensive due to these shoes being end-game equipment for many DEX for attackers and INT for mages. These Snowshoes obtainable only as a drop from defeating Female Boss.
    Capes
    Level 20: [​IMG] Maple Cape, 5 slots
    • The Maple Cape is one of the lowest level capes in the game, making it a popular option for those who want to make INT capes for washing. However, it is only obtainable during the Anniversary Event, so it can be a bit expensive to get.
    Level 25: [​IMG] Old Raggedy Cape, +10 avoid, 5 slots
    • Probably the first cape you will get in the game and the easiest to obtain. You do the quest Stranger's Request in Kerning in order to get it. With 5 slots, it is easy to toss some cheap cape scrolls on there to get your first cape. Alternatively, the Ragged Yellow Cape is very similar, with a small HP bonus and obtainable via Gachapon, as well as any of the Icarus Capes if you're willing to pay a bit extra for speed/jump.
    Level 65: [​IMG] Yellow Gaia Cape, 8 slots
    • Yellow Gaia Cape has 3 more slots than the average cape, making it a good option for those who want to scroll a stat based cape. Obtainable through Gachapon.
    Level 90: [​IMG] Crimsonheart Cloak, +3-5 all stats, 8 slots
    • This attractive cape is up to +5 to all stats, which makes it a decent cape for anyone who wants to scroll one, with 8 slots as well. The only downside is that it is only obtainable through Crimsonwood Keep PQ Bonus or the FM, and that it has a high level requirement.

    Shields
    Level 5: [​IMG] Stolen Fence, 7 slots
    • Probably the most common shield you will see. Stolen Fences are popular due to the fact they are easily obtainable from Lith Harbor for 2k mesos, however, the scrolls themselves are very expensive. The pan lid shield is a prettier alternative.
    Level 20: [​IMG] Maple Shield, 10 slots
    • The extra 3 slots makes this item an amazing option. However, it can be very pricy since it's only from the Anniversary Event.

    Pendants

    Level 30:
    [​IMG] Warm Muffler, +1-3 All Stats
    • Obtained from events. Available in the FM for a reasonable price.
    Level 50: [​IMG] Silver Deputy Star, +5 all stats, +100 HP/MP, 3 slots
    • You can obtain this pendant from completing the (long) Bounty Hunter questline. Keep in mind, you must be higher level to finish the questline. You can also buy it from the Free Market for about 40mil.
    Level 120: [​IMG] Horned Tail Pendant, +6-8 (base), +23 (egged) all stats
    • One of the best pendants in the game. Obtained from Horntail, once 'egged' can provide upwards of +23 INT. This does however require quite a few steps, and should be considered end-game equip.

    Eye Accessories

    Level 35
    : [​IMG] Raccoon Mask, +1 accuracy, 7 slots
    • Obtainable from Gachapon. It's one of the few items you can scroll risk-free thanks to INT 100% scrolls giving the same +1 bonus as 60% scrolls. The level 45 White Raccoon Mask is also a perfectly valid option.

    Face Accessories


    Level ?: Event Items
    • Sometimes there are expiring items from seasonal events that provide INT on the Face Accessory slot, but they are rare.

    Tips

    Some general tips to keep in mind:

    • Sellable - INT equips. are a liquid asset. Historically, they have retained their value, and are very easy to sell when compared to other items. If you're only planning to wash once character, you can often sell your INT items when done, and retain most if not all of your original investment.
    • Efficiency - Certain items are WAY cheaper to scroll for INT than others. For example, scrolls for gloves/shields are significantly more expensive than swords or capes, as such it makes sense to prioritize certain items for meso-efficiency.
    • Leech - When planning your washing, INT equips. may not always be the most efficient use of your meso. For example, at a certain level it's more efficient to buy leech, and MP wash for another level or two, that it would be to buy the gear necessary to generate the same amount of MP.

    Why would you post her unfinished project, then nearly finish it for her..?
    OnionF6

    HP challenges are on its way, so she most likely scrapped it if its unfinished since 2020.

    Why not both. The different strategies to HP/MP Wash are debatable, but this server has an undeniable market for, and interest in, INT gear for washing.

    Both resources can be useful. If the original guide is updated with this new section, I'll take down this one.

    I'm sure there's a solution. I found that reviewing all the items in the game and assembling this list was useful for my own research, and thus I hope it may be of some use to others.

    What items are missing from this list?

    Did I forget any common ones?

    I liked a lot this guide!

    You can edit in the future to make it the range of gears (for example, black bandana can give 1-2 int)

    and add the Taiwan shoes

    INT gear is only worth for low base int situations as it only affects level up mp.
    +150 int from gears is only +15 mp per level - about equivalent to 30 additional base int

    Post updated! Changes include:

    - Adding White Racoon mask as an alternative option.
    - Adding end-game gear such as the Yellow Snowshoes and HTP to the list.

    I'll likely go back and add the INT ranges, or the max possible INT. I think that would be useful.

    Fair, I think there's still niche uses though. The guide can also be referenced for putting together low level mage gear. I still think it's worth documenting, even if it's phasing out of use in the meta.

    It's not like having int gear and mp washing are mutually exclusive. If you still want to maximize your MP gains you'd still have INT gear even if it's used as excess MP and not for hp washing so this is definitely relevant. Also warriors benefit from this information since they could get away with low base int and still hit 30k.

    I think what fartsy was trying to point out is that there is this perception amongst newer players that, "you need int gear in order to start washing", which is of course false given that the majority of the MP gains are from MP washing. Perhaps a disclaimer at the top of the post would be beneficial in reminder the noobs that int gear is an optimization to washing, not a necessity.

    Disclaimer added!

    In this post, I'm going to shy away from any further discussion in regards to the mechanics, efficiency, or meta of washing, as better players than I have already created many discussions on the matter.

    Any other items that are missing?

    Agreed, I just wanted to point that out for newer players to make sure they have all the information available. I also want the OP to feel good about the information he compiled and not feel like it wasn't useful or welcomed by the community.

    Green bandana for helms due to its high slot number.
    Heart wand due to high base int, though higher level
    Yellow ragged cape functionally same as old ragged
    Warm muffler is lv 30
    Rudolph's red nose is coming soon for a phat +1 on face

    Although Zakum helm is there already, the addition to Ravana, Targa helms could suffice, of course they are higher level but they do include int. Heart Wand/Staff, Diao Chan Sword could be added in too.

    Thanks everyone! Especially DrChuChu and UnknownCode. Changes include:
    • Adding the Diao Chan Sword and Green Bandana.
    • Mentioning the Ravana, Targa helms, Heart Wand, as alternative options!
    • Expanding some of the commentary
    Based on LeonardoJF's comment, I'll be updating the stats to list the max INT on the item, as I've found that to be the most useful metric.

    I've updated the guide to show the ranges of INT that's possible on each item. For example: Red Emerald Earrings, +0-3 Int, 5 slots

    Would you like to see "scrolling tips" included in this guide? Suggestions on how to get the best bang for the meso, would that be helpful?
