How do you get a maple weapon in Maplestory?
Certain monsters can drop them, if you visit the official Maple Story website, it will tell you. Or if you have enough maple leaves, you can turn them into a silver coin. But I would kill monsters to get the weapon because each silver coin equals 500 Maple leaves. And not all monsters drop leaves.
The reason why the Nexon Team made maplestory is because you can choose you own path to walk on. Like what classes you want to make. Also, they added the Maple in there because there's a special event always having to deal with maple stuff like maple weapons, maple chairs, and a lot of other stuff. The original name was Oakstory, until they changed it because Maplestory sounds better!
