Introduction

What are Androids?
Androids are creepy robot dolls (ok, Nexon calls them “companions” ) of either gender that follow your character around. They were released with the v.99 Chaos: Age of Artisans update and basic types can be crafted with Smithing profession. They wear NX clothing, and NX clothing only, with slots for Helm, Gloves, Mantle, Top, Bottom, Shoes and Face.

Noble: Maybe you should include a section on how to equip NX clothes on androids because I couldn’t figure it out for the longest time cause my android tab was hidden 😥

img_androidtab_final

To access the android tab, open your Equipment tab (default hotkey E) and click on the tab at the top for “AD”. It’s next to the other tab for Pet equipment (and Haku/Mir/Mechanic tank etc if you have those). You can change android’s clothes by dragging and dropping CS items onto the slots for android’s equipment.

Important note: CS equips that have stat boosts will not apply to your character if worn on the android. For example, the various Maple Berets that give 30 M/W.DEF won’t give you this stat if they are equipped on the android.

So… what are they for other than playing dress up with?
“Why bother with an android?” I hear you scoff. The answer is basically: “Hearts.”
Androids will only function with an android heart equipped. There are varying levels of hearts available, just as there are different types of androids available. These hearts not only allow your android to be seen, but also come with 0 – 10 scrollable slots depending on the heart and can be potentialed. Oooh yes, this is where damage gardening tools begin to take interest.


Androids

Regular and Deluxe Androids
Regular and Deluxe Androids can be crafted with recipes; level 4 Smithing is required for regular androids whereas Deluxe will need level 10. The recipes for androids are one-time-use so you will need a recipe for each android that you make. Both regular and Deluxe types are freely tradeable until equip, after which regular androids become untradeable forever and Deluxe may be traded with Platinum Scissors of Karma (PSoK).

Aside from crafting, regular types can also be obtained through Boy Android Coupon and Girl Android Coupon (both from Cash Shop random rewards, such as Philosopher’s Book) which grant one uncrafted regular android of the corresponding gender plus one time-limited Beaded Heart. No such coupon currently exists for Deluxe Androids; however, uncrafted versions of Deluxe Android (M) and Deluxe Android (F) were introduced to the game in the Maplehood Watch event.

The following is a list of craftable androids, their stats and crafting requirements.

Android type Rank Equip level Craft level Materials to craft
Android (F) 3 30 4 ⋅ Android (F) Recipe x1
⋅ Adamantium Plate x25
⋅ Magic Powder (Brown) x10
⋅ Intermediate Abrasive x5
⋅ Intermediate Item Crystal x10
Android (M) 3 30 4 ⋅ Android (M) Recipe x1
⋅ Adamantium Plate x25
⋅ Magic Powder (Brown) x10
⋅ Intermediate Abrasive x5
⋅ Intermediate Item Crystal x10
Deluxe Android (F) 8 70 10 ⋅ Deluxe Android (F) Recipe x1
⋅ Wisdom Crystal x25
⋅ Magic Powder (Purple) x10
⋅ Superior Abrasive x5
⋅ Superior Item Crystal x10
Deluxe Android (M) 8 70 10 ⋅ Deluxe Android (F) Recipe x1
⋅ Wisdom Crystal x25
⋅ Magic Powder (Purple) x10
⋅ Superior Abrasive x5
⋅ Superior Item Crystal x10

Deluxe Android (M) and (F) recipes drop from most bosses:

  • Hilla (Normal/Hard)
  • Horntail (Normal/Chaos)
  • Zakum (Normal/Chaos)
  • Ranmaru (Normal/Madman)
  • Pink Bean (Normal/Chaos)
  • Root Abyss bosses (Normal/Chaos, seemingly lower rate than other bosses)
  • Root Abyss random popup store (Chaos)

Android (M) and (F) recipes can be obtained through the Mining part time job (semi-low chance, not too rare) and from Zakum (Normal/Chaos).

The above information is consistent with my personal confirmation in-game, 2016. Additionally, HiddenStreet suggests that Android (M) and Android (F) recipes drop from these regular monsters, but I have not personally confirmed these non-boss drops. If you are in Reboot world, I suggest trying for a recipe via part time jobs; the drop rates are otherwise very low (for example, I have only ever obtained 2 regular android recipes from normal and chaos Zakum combined, and this is with two daily runs every day since androids were released in the game + more %drop rate than the average player).

*Please note that any androids that currently speak with a non-localised voiceover (i.e., Korean, Japanese) tend to have their voices remedied when it finally catches Nexon’s attention. If the English voiceovers gross you out as much as they do me, your only options are to turn off SFX, or obtain a voiceless android (which may have voices added at Nexon’s whim).

The next section provides extra detail on the androids listed above. For a quick visual reference of their appearances, see Android Appearance and Special Features.

Princessroid, Fantastical, Summeroid, Schooldroid
These are the earliest uncraftable androids released in the game, with the first being Princessroid from Magic Music Boxes in December 2011. Since then, these androids have commonly been chucked in as rewards from other Cash Shop random boxes such as Crystal Scale, Fairy Vial, Magical Teapot, Philosopher’s Book, etc (list not inclusive). Schooldroid came from Cash Shop itself as a 3.5k package, and Fantastical was made available in the Maplehood Watch event. All have been in the Marvel Machine at some point. The rewards list for these boxes/Marvel tend to change with each re-release so be sure to check the site’s list before buying any.

summeroid_pic

Partner’s Slave. Or Slave’s Partner?

Hot Day reward androids
All Hot Day reward androids come as the opposite gender to the character that received it, unless only one gender for that android is available (e.g. Beryl-roid). When opening a Zero Android Coupon, you will receive Alpha or Beta based on your character’s gender (opposite).

If your character is a Zero, gender will be determined by the mode in which you are currently playing in, so feel free to Tag to get the desired android. Of all the Hot Day reward androids, only Zero Android has also been additionally included in Marvel Machine.

Shade Android has different expressions from other androids, listed in the Android Appearances and Special Features section. Tradeable versions of Lotusroid, available as “additional” Hot Time rewards, were randomly given to very few players in Hot Time events since December 2015. This tradeable Lotusroid coupon was then added to the August 2016 round of Philosopher’s Book, where the android came with a malfunctioning shop.

Mesoranger Androids
Mesoranger Androids were time-limited androids obtainable from from the Mesoranger Entrance Exam event that was part of the v.121 Rise Against update in November 2012. They were brought back as a Hot Day reward in the v.146 Return To Masteria update on 22 February 2014, then added as untradeable coupons to the Marvel Machine list in March 2016, as well as the Philosopher’s Book reward list from January 2016.

All Mesoranger Androids from Mesoranger Android Coupons are time-limited and carry a 30-day duration, which cannot be extended. Their appearance selects from the same style pool as Deluxe androids but they wear mesoranger outfits. Along with regular androids, these are the lowest ranked androids in GMS.

Succubus
Succubus Android was first released on 5 September 2013 as part of the v.141 Cygnus Awakening Mabinogi Crossover event. Like Schooldroids, they cost 3.5k NX and came with a time-limited heart. Their introduction to the game was accompanied by the Android Shop, a general store accessible through the android (click on the “Shop” button in android’s Equip tab or double click the android).

Although the first release was permanent, the re-release of Succubus on 26 March 2014 was 90-days. Another permanent version then became obtainable from Gachapon for a limited time (26 March 2015 update, now not available). The time-limited version was brought back on 30 November 2015 as a one-day Black Friday sale, while the permanent version returned with the March 2016 round of Marvel.

Succubus Android was then also included in Philosopher’s Book as Succubus Android Coupon from January 2016, though her coupon was initially bugged and would reward a time-limited android. This was intended to be remedied in the 11 August 2016 maintenance; however, no replacements were handed out. Nexon has been made aware of this, and states that players who directly received a Succubus Android Coupon from Philosopher’s Book will receive replacement coupons for a permanent version of the android sometime down the line. On the other hand, if you purchased the coupons from other players like my main character did, you will not be receiving any sort of compensation. Oct 2016 update: I have received my replacements (for a character that did obtain coupons from the books) after going through weeks of Customer Support, but many players still have not. I wish you luck if you are going to follow this issue up with Nexon.

If you intend to purchase a Succubus Android, I advise against purchasing the coupon – buy the android directly instead. The only way to tell whether the coupon you are purchasing contains a permanent or time-limited Succubus Android is via owls (first coupon search result is the permanent one), however this is a problem if a seller has both types for the same price. The permanent version is fully tradeable, so try asking the seller if they can open the coupon for you first.

Futuroid
Futuroids are a little different from other androids. They were released with the v.141 Cygnus Awakening update and are designed by JMS.

You can make one by turning in one each of the seven Futuroid parts to Gaga found in the Event Hall. In the first release, Futuroid parts were dropped by normal monsters from 25 September – 15 October 2013, then became available in the Cash Shop from 16 October – 12 November 2013 for 300 NX each (2.1k NX for entire set).

For the second round of the Futuroid event, parts 2 – 7 were dropped by monsters of your level range while part 1 was available in the Cash Shop for 300NX/Reward Points. All subsequent returns of the Futuroid event have since followed this method of obtaining the android.

Round two was also accompanied by the addition of Futuroid Coupon in the Gachapon for a limited time (7 Oct – 3 Nov 2015). Unlike those you redeem from Gaga, this coupon’s Futuroid is tradeable until equip, and then PSoKable after. You can still choose the gender of Futuroid you want when using the coupon. Additionally, the Electronic Heart O-Series in the coupon is permanent and fully tradeable. These coupons came back in the March 2016 Marvel Machine.

Futuroids require Electronic Hearts to operate. No other heart will work with Futuroids, making them an exception to the Android Ranks rule. You do not need the Electronic Heart to just make the Futuroid, but you must have one to activate it. Upon original release, Electronic Heart Coupon was only purchaseable from the Cash Shop for 4k NX (“special price” 3k), giving a random time-limited Electronic Heart. This was later amended and all time-limited Electronic Hearts can now be purchased from Nack in Ardentmill for 1m each.

Something to note is the eye accessory Futuroid (M) wears. Since Androids do not have an eye accessory equip slot, you will not be able to cover this feature. If this matters to you, be mindful about which one you choose!

Fun fact:
JMS had a competition to decide Futuroid’s voiceovers! Scroll down that link and you’ll be able to listen to the other nominated options (hit the Play button next to options 1 ~ 8). The final voices chosen for Futuroid were option 2 (“Cool” voice) for males, and option 7 for females (“Tsundere” voice). I’m in loveeeeeeeeee  ^^

Unfortunately, the Japanese voices have now been dubbed in GMS. You can listen to the old voices in the Android Appearance and Special Features section of this guide.

Zombie
The first Zombie survival event took place from 28 May to 17 June 2014. It returned on 14 October – 10 November 2015. Three android/heart types were available; the one received depended on course of action during the event. Only one type of zombie event android could be obtained per character. You cannot use zombie androids with any other heart and you cannot use other androids with zombie hearts. These androids were also made available in the Artifact Keeper Shop.

For information on heart stats, check out the Special Hearts table.

Orchiroid
From 9 ~ 22 July 2014, level 30+ characters were able to participate in Cassandra’s Monster Purge event. Killing 300 monsters within level range resulted in a Monster Purge Gift Box, where one of the random rewards was an Orchiroid Coupon. Orchiroid was obtainable once per account, moveable within the account once and provides the Android Shop.

Orchiroid and her bean buddy ^^

Orchidroid was re-released in the Black Heaven Ignition Package in March 2014. This Orchiroid does not have the Android Shop. Following from player complaints regarding this, Orchiroid Coupon was later added into Gachapon as a limited time prize, which did have access to the Android Shop. Orchiroid became available once again in the v.162 Spring into Summer Artifact Keeper Shop, for 240 10-Year Tokens. This android again did not come with the Android Shop. nexonpls

With the August 2016 round of Philosopher’s Book came the addition of shop-accessible Orchiroid to the rewards pool.

Darkhound
From 4 February to 3 March 2015, characters level 30 and above had the opportunity to score Darkhound Android (once per character). Looting “Vampire’s Blood” and using “Blood Cure” 30 times resulted in the event character Darkhound turning into an android, giving the player Darkhound (F) and Childhood Friend Heart. This android and heart can only be used with each other.

Lotusroid
Lotusroid was released as the final day reward from the 21-day Black Heaven Attendance event, running from 16 March to 5 April 2015. Unlike the usual android coupons, this Lotusroid Coupon came with a permanent Lidium Heart. Lotusroid Coupon was then purchasable from the Artifact Keeper Shop (20 May – 12 July 2015) for 240 10-Year Tokens, again with a permanent Lidium Heart included. These Lotusroids are shareable within the account once, becoming permanently untradeable after.

A different Lotusroid was then introduced in the 5 December 2015 Hot Time event. This Lotusroid Coupon was randomly given to a small handful of players in GMS, and contained a tradeable Lotusroid (PSoKable after equip) plus a 90-day Lidium Heart. A similar Hot Time event on 25 June 2016 again randomly rewarded some players with this tradeable Lotusroid Coupon, containing the tradeable Lotusroid and 90-day Lidium Heart. This Lotusroid was made available starting from the August 2016 round of Philosopher’s Book.

Lotusroid does not speak, which may or may not be a bonus depending on how much you like Nexon America’s voice acting.

Murgothroid
Murgothroid became available with the second round of the Murgoth Dungeon Event in the v.165 Pink Bean: Superstar patch. Collecting 100,000 points gave a reward of Murgothroid, 4 Equip Slot Coupon and 1000 Reward Points.

This event also allowed players to obtain Murgoth’s and Nine-tailed Fox’s hair and face coupons, which were useable on the android as well as players. Both hair coupons cost 2000 Murgoth Souls while both face coupons were 3000 Murgoth Souls.

Unfortunately, my list of the available styles is incomplete so if you do happen to know any more please let me know in comments!

Hilla and Magnus
These two androids were sold in the Firepower Coin Shop from 8 July ~ 9 September 2015, for 2000 Firepower Coins each. Both androids come with the Android Shop function.

hilla_magnus

♥ Magnus x Hilla ♥

There were glitches associated with Hilla Android and Magnus Android:

  • Hilla Android – some facial expressions misaligned with the sprite
  • Magnus Android – was intially designed with a female base by mistake. This resulted in Magnus only being able to wear female clothing, his default face having feminine expressions, and only female hair/face options being available at the Android Beautician.

Both androids’ issues have now been fixed, but my Magnus shall forever be fabulous ^^

Battle-roid
Battle-roid (M) and Battle-roid (F) were first released on 29 Nov 2015, via the cash shop Black Friday Lucky Box (Sunday), then returned in the subsequent Marvel Machine events (10 – 18 March 2016, 30 June 2016) and finally Philosopher’s Book. These androids have more features than others, including access to the android shop and protection of all buffs on revival.

Initially, these androids’ coupons incorrectly stated that EXP loss upon death will also be prevented, along with restoration of full HP/MP. This has been resolved, and Battleroid coupons now accurately describe the Battleroids’ shop and buff protection features only.

cecil_rosa1b

I wonder where Battleroids’ design inspiration came from?

Although they were released alongside Outlaw Heart, they are not restricted to using this heart; as a rank 9 android, it can equip any other heart in the game that isn’t specifically locked to a matching android.

Louie-roid
Louie-roid (F) and Louie-roid (M) were seemingly unintentional add-ins to the Reboot Coin Shop. No official mention of them was made in any patch notes, and they were ninja added into the shop halfway through the Reboot events, in the 16 December 2015 maintenance. Initially, their purchase was bugged; there was a hidden requirement to have obtained the Master Santa medal from the Sizzling Santa event in order to purchase these. However, this was later amended in the 7 January 2016 maintenance and they could be bought for 3,000 Reboot Coins each without extra requirements.

Louie-roids come with randomised hair and eye colour, and include the Android Shop function. They are moveable within an account once and there was no limit to how many of them could be purchased.

Halloweenroid
Philosopher’s Book returned from 27 January – 2 February 2016, introducing a new Halloweenroid (F) into GMS. Despite the name, there isn’t currently a male counterpart of this android. She comes dressed in the Halloweenroid set (re-coloured, purple versions of Gothic Overall, Gothic Boots, and Black Cat Ears) and selects from her own unique pool of styles, all with Mercedes-white skin (like Succubus android).

squish_sideways

“She’s got squish’s face, sideways!”

Halloweenroid also comes with access to the Android Shop.

Subani-roid and Dr. Jang-roid
These two androids were introduced during the v.171 Masteria Through Time update on 7 April 2016. Characters can only choose one of the two androids in the final segment of Act 3, but they are account-moveable and the Masteria Through Time content can be completed unlimited times per account. Note: both Masteria Through Time and these android rewards are permanent content.

Derpy Subani-roid and sexy Dr. Jang-roid come with the Android Shop function. Like Magnus android, Subani-roid initially had the female-base glitch, where he could only equip female covers and had only female options at the beautician. This was then fixed in the 20 April 2016 v.172 update.

Friendsroids
The Sweet Maple Ice Cream Pop event held during GMS’ 11th anniversary contained extra rewards not officially announced on the patch notes. One such reward was the Friendsroid Box, which contained one of four Friendsroids at random: Cygnusroid, Eckhartroid, Irenaroid, and Neinheartroid. These can be viewed on Orange Mushroom’s blog (first row).

To date, I have not yet found anybody who received one of the Maple-roids in the second row of that image. In KMS, Friendsroid Box contained all six of those, in addition to the other four – if you have information, please do comment ^^

Neinheartroid was then officially made available in the Heroic Android Gift Pack. He is a rank 9 android without additional features, aside from being released with a Korean voiceover initially. This was remedied in the 7 July 2016 scheduled maintenance.

All Friendsroids come with a unique Green Pencil Label for their names, unlike the traditional red label of most other androids (or blue for Battleroids). Each one is designed around their FriendStory counterpart of the Maple World character.

Maidroid
The August 2016 round of Philosopher’s Book introduced many new androids, including Maidroid. She comes dressed like Princessroid, but selects from her own pool  of styles in randomised colours (see Android Appearance and Special Features). Maidroid comes with the android shop function.

Cool Moonbeam Roid
Shade’s adorable companion Moonbeam has been made into an android! This android comes from Moonbeam Roid Set Coupon, which was added to the Philosopher’s Book rewards list in August 2016.

moonbeam_shade

Shh. We’ll pretend she remembers Shade.

Cool Moonbeam Roid can access the android shop and comes in only one style, complete with bikini. She is also one of the few androids with a unique label, designed to complement Moonbeam’s signature motif. The Moonbeam Roid Set Coupon was initially un-openable when released, but this was remedied in the 11 August 2016 maintenance.

Fairy Roids
Fairy Roid (F) and Fairy Roid (M) are androids with one default style each, though the hair and face may come in any colour. Their names are derived from the Shakespearean characters these androids’ hairs are based around: Fairy Queen Titiana and Fairy King Oberon. The Fairy Roid (F) and Fairy Roid (M) Coupons each come with their respective android, one Fairy Heart, and ten Fairy Heart Enhancement stones (which can only be used on Fairy Heart). See Scrolling and Upgrading Android Hearts for more info.

Though Fairy Roids initially had the Korean voiceovers, they weren’t lucky enough to escape Nexon detection, and the voices were removed in the 11 August 2016 maintenance (they are now voiceless). Fairy Roids also have access to the android shop, and come with a uniquely coloured label.

fairyroids_cecil

It’s Cecil…?

Secret Stories
A new Halloween event, Secret Stories, was introduced in 2016 and brought with it a collection of beautiful, maid-themed androids with dessert-themed names: Mont Blancroid, Puddingroid, Chouxroid, and Piedroid. These lovely ladies were obtainable through the time-limited Maid Android Exchange Coupon, a completion reward for playing through every story branch of Episode 2: Maid to Order. Only one coupon could be received per world on each account.

Secret Stories androids are basic rank 9 types with no additional features.


Android Hearts

All hearts apart from Silver Hearts can be scrolled, enhanced, potentialed and have nebulite sockets created on them. See Scrolling and Upgrading Android Hearts for more information on upgrades.

  • There are two categories of android hearts: craftable and non-craftable.
  • Hearts can be shared between androids on the same character as long as they are compatible. That is, if you have two androids but one heart, the heart will function for both (but you can equip only one android at a time).
  • Neither hearts nor androids can be extracted or fused.

You can only equip one heart at a time, unless you are a Xenon.

Craftable Android Hearts
Like other crafted items, any craftable hearts you make will have a chance of coming out with hidden potential/bonus potential too. The recipes for the hearts are permanent (as opposed to android recipes’ one-time-usage), but the crafted hearts themselves will have a 21-day time limit (timer begins as soon as it is crafted). You can remake hearts as many times as you like as long as you have the materials. Aside from being found in monster drops, recipes for craftable hearts can often be purchased during event Coin Shops (all heart recipes listed below were first available in the Legends Coin Shop apart from Silver and Lidium), as well as one-time-purchase items from the Gollux coin shop (Iron/Gold Hearts only).

The following table lists craftable heart types, their stats and crafting information. Silver, Iron and Adamantium Hearts are freely tradeable; you may equip and trade them as often as you like until their 21-day duration is over. The rest of the craftable hearts come with an equip tradeblock.

Android and Heart Ranks
“Ranks” that you see on androids’ information determine which hearts can be equipped. Androids may equip hearts equal to or lower than their rank. The larger the number, the higher the android/heart rank. Possible rank values range from 0 (no rank) to 10, though 9 is the highest currently available in GMS.

Examples:

  • Princessroid is rank 9, so she can wear any heart that is ranked 1-9
  • Beryl Heart is rank 5, so it is compatible with androids that are rank 5 – 9

However… some event androids are compatible only with their specified hearts, regardless of rank. If this is the case, it will usually be listed on their item description (this description is lacking in Electronic Heart O-Series). Below is a list of android and heart pairings this applies to.

  • Futuroid (M/F) – Electronic Heart Series (any)
  • Clobber (M) – Clobber’s Heart
  • Disease Control STAR (F) – STAR’s Heart
  • Neville, the Legend (M) – Neville’s Heart
  • Darkhound Android – Childhood Friend Heart

Scrolling and Upgrading Android Hearts

Scroll to your heart’s content!
Non-Silver Hearts can be scrolled with almost any kind of scroll, whether it’s 100% scrolls from NPCs or 60%s or GM scrolls. Chaos, Clean Slate, Innocence, Potential, Equip Enhancement/Starforce system and hammers also work. If you are going to spend time/money/effort in perfecting a heart, ideally you want to scroll a permanent rather than time-limited one.

The most commonly scrolled hearts are permanent Beryl/Crystal at 5 slots clean each and Lidium Heart with 7 slots clean. Those who can afford it will aim for Superior Lidium, Titanium, Outlaw, or Fairy (the main difference between these and the others being item tier). Any other permanent heart is also a good candidate to chuck your scrolls on, so just go with whatever suits your budget.

Hearts can be cubed, though currently only a handful are third tier (worth cubing) in GMS: Superior Lidium Heart, Titanium Heart, Outlaw Heart, and Fairy Heart. It is also worth noting that only Outlaw Heart can be PSoKed.

Nebulites may also be added once you make the necessary slot with an alien socket creator. Only nebulites that have the description “may be fitted on all equipment with an alien socket” can be used; weapon-specific or other armour-specific (such as shoes-only, hats-only, etc) nebulites will not work on a heart.

How to read the Starforce table:

  • Attempted star number means the star you are trying to enhance to. For example, attempted star number 1 means you are starting at 0 stars and are aiming for the first star. You will have a 95% chance of successfully gaining the first star and it will cost you 2,100 mesos.
  • Red numbers indicate enhancement levels that will drop upon failure. For example, you have 6 stars and want to try to get the 7th star. If you fail, your star number drops to 5 and it will still eat your 281,000 mesos.

What should I scroll hearts with?
Spell Traces are a viable option for people with less funds, or those who aren’t aiming for the best stats. Prime Scroll for Weapon (1H or 2H) is currently the strongest available scroll for hearts, and tradeable versions can be found in Marvel Machine, while untradeable ones are from previous coin shops. If they are out of your budget, other non-event shop options include:

  • 60% PQ scrolls +5 att/m.att (from NPC Pub at Party Quest Entrance)
  • 50% pink scrolls +5 att/m.att (from old events, occasionally pops up in FM)
  • 40% Vision scrolls  +4 att/m.att (dropped by mobs in Twilight Perion)
  • regular old 10%/30% weapon scrolls (from Gachapon and some mobs)
  • Epic Potential Scroll 50% (from Dojo for 15,000 points)

Additionally, the introduction of Fairy Roids was accompanied with a new heart enhancement item, Fairy Heart Enhancement Stone, which can only be used to upgrade Fairy Heart. These untradeable stones come in a stack of ten per Fairy Roid Coupon, and do not expire.

fairyheart_enhancementstone

Exceptions: scrolls that currently do not work on android hearts

  • All Mu Gong’s scrolls from pre-revamp dojo
  • Unleashed Scroll for Two-Handed Weapon Magic ATT 50%
  • Bounty Hunter scrolls (all)
  • Gollux scrolls (both Basic and Advanced)
  • Sweetwater scrolls (weapons and accessories)
  • Necromancer scrolls (1h/2h att/m.att etc)
  • Sweet V Scroll 50%
  • Singles Army Signet/Pendant Enhancement Scroll
  • Scroll for White Day Heart Balloon (all)

As you may have noticed, many scrolls that are specific to a certain item or event do not work. Feel free to comment with more for this list! It’s here to help prevent people from making a mistake with scroll purchases.

Android Appearance and Special Features

All androids (that have more than one default) can be born with any hair and eye colour and these are completely randomised. The styles they select from depend on which type of android they are; some even only come in one default look.

There is an Android Beautician, Lauren, in the Henesys Hair Salon who deals with all your android beauty needs. Here you can use the following to modify your android’s appearance:

  • Hair Style Coupon (VIP/REG)
  • Hair Colour Coupon (VIP/REG)
  • Face Coupon (VIP/REG)
  • Skin Coupon (VIP/REG)
  • All Eye Colour contacts except White

Additionally, these event hair and face coupons can be used on androids:

  • Android Kitty Hair Coupon (M/F)
  • Murgoth’s Hair Coupon
  • Murgoth’s Face Coupon
  • Nine-Tailed Fox Hair Coupon
  • Nine-Tailed Fox Face Coupon

Craftable Android Styles
By default, regular androids will have Pale or Light skin and a random hair and face style from the selection below.

updated_regstyles_final

Deluxe Androids select from their own pool of appearance options and, in addition to Pale or Light, can also be born with Pink skin, like special androids.

updated_deluxestyle

Special Android Styles
Mesoranger androids share the same style pool as Deluxe but wear Mesoranger outfits.

updated_mesoranger_final

Halloweenroid (F) has her own unique options, and only comes in white (Mercedes) skin. The colours shown are defaults; Halloweenroid style colours are not randomised. The “unconfirmed” column on the right shows styles that came with Halloweenroid in JMS, but have not yet been confirmed in GMS. Many thanks to Krissy of Scania for her help with this!

halloweenroid_imagetable

Princessroid, Summeroid, Fantastical Android, Schooldroid, and Maidroid each select from smaller pools that largely consist of Royal styles, and these androids can come with Pale, Light or Pink skin.

table_specialstyles_final

Berylroid, Succubus, Futuroid, Orchiroid, Shade, Zero Alpha/Beta, Zombie, Darkhound, Lotusroid, Hilla, Magnus, Murgothroid, Battle-roids, Louie-roids, Masteria androids, Friendsroids, Moonbeam Roid, and Fairy Roids only come in one default look (though Louie-roids and Fairy Roids have randomised hair and eye colour).

About the tables:

  • For Special Android Styles, I have divided the face options into two columns. The one on the left (android-exclusive) means these are the special faces you can only obtain via opening one of these androids and getting lucky. The right column shows other options the android may be born with, but these styles are also available from the beautician. The colours shown may not necessarily be what yours ends up with; I just wanted to make my guide colourful.
  • Every android can still have their default looks changed at the salon, but keep in mind the change options remain the same as for Regular Androids (see below). If you choose to change your special android’s unique hair/face, you cannot get it back!
  • Yes, Schooldroid (M) really does come with the female headgear, as does Battle-roid (M) underneath that mask ^^

Android hairstyle, face, and skin change options
The following is a list of beauty options available from Lauren. She covers most GMS VIP/REG styles.

img_laurenhair_final

img_laurenface_final

Skin colour beautician options for androids are shown below:

beautician_skin

It is interesting to note that some skin colours which are currently not available to regular players in GMS are actually obtainable for androids instead (looking at you, Clay skin 😥 ), while Green isn’t in the style pool.

Finally, android eye colour can now be changed as of v.177! Currently, all colours are available apart from white.

Android Kitty Hair Coupons
Maplestory’s 9th Anniversary event shop brought not only a ton of glorious scrolls for android hearts, but also the first ever Android Hair Coupons released in GMS: Android Kitty Hair Coupon (F) and Android Kitty Hair Coupon (M)!
Double-clicking on the coupon will change your android’s hairstyle into the male or female variants of Kitty Hair, shown below:

img_kittyhair_final

The coupons are permanent, untradeable and were 650 9th Anniversary Coins from Inkwell. You can only use the coupon on corresponding gender androids (i.e. the (M) coupon will not work on a female android and vice versa).
Warning: This coupon will apply to whichever android you have equipped at the time. Be sure to double check you are wearing the one you want Kitty Hair on.

Modifiers that DO NOT work at the Android Beautician

  • Tot’s Know-How hairstyle coupon
  • In-game character hair coupons (e.g. Bed Head Coupon (M), Pretty Girl Hair Coupon (F), etc)
  • Random Beauty Coupons from Random Beauty Coupon Event
  • Royal Hair/Face Coupon
  • All-Stars Hair/Face Coupon
  • SAO hair/face coupons (e.g. Kirito’s Hair Coupon, Asuna’s Face coupon, etc)

Royal coupons?
Royal hair options for androids at the beautician were mistakenly added into game data in the v.154 patch on 16 September 2014 and then removed in the 2 October 2014 maintenance. They are now incompatible with androids as per previously.

Android’s Royal hairstyles that were obtainable from 16 Sep – 2 Oct 2014:

Androids have feelings, too. Sometimes.
For the most part, Androids will be staring blankly into space (if your android has Angel Glow face like mine, their gazes look particularly deadpan). Occasionally they will F1 and do the alert pose when you get hit. However, they also seem to show signs of affection for you at times:

♥ When you log in, exit from Cash Shop/Monster Life or change channels
Android will smile or wink. Special androids will do this and also talk to you… literally. Turn on your sounds to be creeped out as hell
Battle-roids: in addition to smile/wink, these can also do Ray face

♥ When you level up
Android will either F6 you and say “Not bad!” in a little chat box above its head, or do sparkly eyes and say “Amazing!”
Battle-roids: Ray face, “Great! Show me how strong you have become!” or F2, “I expect great things from you.”
Futuroids: F6, “Not bad?” or sparkly eyes, “Master ~ It’s amazing!!”

♥ When you job advance
Android will do the Ray face and say “Wow! Cool!”
Battle-roids: “Awesome! Time to seek out and destroy your enemies!”
Futuroids: Ray face, “Whoa! Neat!”

♥ When you die
Android will either cry and say variants of “Noooo!” or do the whoa-whoa face and say “Master!”. Or “Masteeer!” if it is a failure at spelling. Or if yours is completely apathetic and unconcerned with you, just continue staring off into nothing. Poor you.
Shade Android: “Master, I weep.” or “The ultimate sacrifice.”
Battle-roids: F5, “Be strong. Today may have ended in defeat, but tomorrow shall see you victorious!” or F5, “Stand and fight! Show me your true power!”

♥ When your time-limited heart expires
Android will cry and say “I will miss you…”

img_missyou_finalIs this not the most heartbreaking image ever??

As mentioned above, Special Androids (most non-craftable types) can also speak. Turn on your sounds and double click on the android. They used to have super sexy Korean voiceovers (or Japanese for Futuroids) but after like two years, Nexon finally decided to fix that and install cringe-worthy English voiceovers. I refuse to upload these horrid new voices and will instead keep a record of the old ones here for your listening pleasure. R.I.P.

Android commands: make your blow up doll do faces at you!
Lastly, you can also command your android to make faces. Below is a list I’ve gathered and tested so far but please feel free to add some more. All commands must be typed exactly as shown (i.e. with the capital letter at the beginning) in order for it to show. You can type these commands into a sentence and it will work, as long as you have that capital letter. For example, typing “you suck Haha” or “Hoho I’m Santa” will both make your android F2.

As you might notice, some commands are just variants of the original (eg. Kiss is the actual command for smoochies face, which is within Kissy) but since people seem to prefer saying “Smoochies” as opposed to “Smooch”, I’ve included the most common sayings as well.

Expression Commands
F2 Haha | Hoho
F4 Boohoo
F7 Whoa
F5 Grr
Queasy Yuck | Gross
Kissy face Smooch | Smoochie | Smoochies | Kiss | Kissy
Googoo I love you
Sparkly eyes Wow | Totally | Awesome | Yay

Q&A

Can my android wear regular equips?
No, Cash Shop items only. This includes tradeable Cash items, whether permanent or non-permanent. Remember that androids do not have a slot for eye accessories!

How do I change my android’s appearance?
You can use Cash shop VIP/REG hair, VIP/REG hair colour, VIP/REG face and skin colour coupons on your android by speaking with the android specialist located at Heneseys Hair Salon. There is no option for One-time Cosmetic Lenses at the beautician so you cannot change android’s eye colour.

Will my Android’s appearance change after trading it with a PSoK?
Nope. Your android’s appearance is set from the moment it is opened and trading it will not reset how it looks. Cash equips are bound to your character, not the android, so PSoKs won’t allow you to transfer the clothes on your android either.

Can I equip multiple Androids and/or hearts?
No, unless you are a Xenon. Your non-Xenon character currently only has one android slot and one heart slot available. You can, however, have multiple androids and hearts in your inventory as they are not one-of-a-kind items. The second slot Xenon has, the Power Source, can equip an android heart in its place (but the Hybrid Heart cannot be equipped in the regular android heart slot).

Why can’t I equip my Android/heart?
Either you don’t meet the level requirement for the android/heart/both, or one of the two items do not satisfy each other’s rank requirements. This happens, for example, when you try to equip a regular type android while you are wearing a Beryl Heart. Conversely, if you have the regular android equipped first and then equip the higher rank heart, the android will disappear from view even though both items are worn, and the heart’s stats will not apply. Newer event androids also have specific heart requirements; these are outlined in the Android Ranks section.

After my time-limited android heart expires, will the stats be kept if I equip a new heart?
No. Each heart should be treated like a separate item. Most expire in 21 days and every time you replace them they will be clean. The stats do not “save” onto the android itself.

Can I extend the time limit on my crafted Hearts?
No. post2short

Are permanent hearts legit? Where can I get one?
In 2012 “permanent” Lidium hearts were illegitly generated then duped by hackers during a time when permanent hearts did not exist in GMS. The reason they did not have an expiry date is because they were not crafted, and thus had no crafting date to set a time limit from. Most, if not all, have been removed and are now rather obsolete; we have plenty of legit permanent hearts available now in GMS.

How do I tell the difference between legit and illegit permanent hearts?
Before the June 2014 round of Marvel, all legit permanent hearts except Beryl Heart and Silver Heart had the “Permanent” tag in the item name, e.g. Gold Heart (Permanent). The illegit ones in 2012 were typically Lidium Hearts, so you could tell legit from illegitimate by the (Permanent) part.
However, in the June 2014 round of Marvel Machine, all Lidium Heart prizes did not have this tag. Don’t worry too much though, because the chance of you running into an illegitimate heart now is near zero, and many people don’t even remember this anymore.

Help! I can’t find android heart scrolls!
You should have read my guide dammit. Android hearts can be scrolled with almost literally any kind of scroll. Whether it’s 30% or 60%, Scroll for Claw for Attack or Scroll for Blunt Weapon for Accuracy, you name it. Chaos, Clean Slate, Innocence, Potential and Equip Enhancement scrolls also work.

Which androids can wear Beryl Hearts?
*points to Android Ranks section*

Why do people call them “berly” hearts?
They’re stupid. Don’t say berly or I’ll hit you.

Prices vary from server to server but for a rough estimate of the kind of budget you will need, I’ll base it on my GRAZED server in October 2016.

  • Time-limited hearts will cost next to nothing and most can be crafted for next to nothing.
  • First tier permanent hearts with lowest number of slots (3 or less) can usually be found for under 50m, whereas 4-5 slot ones will fetch closer to 100m. Lidiums are around 500m, but there is great fluctuation depending on its availability from Gachapon, Marvel Machine, and the like.
  • 9-slot event android hearts are typically about the price of the 4-5 slot general hearts when the event is going on, and don’t increase by much post-event because they’re set to specific androids even if they have nice slots. With the continual addition of more and better hearts, these event hearts are worth much less now.
  • Third tier hearts are all in the billions and these GRAZED prices will likely be markedly different from other servers. After the most recent round of Marvel and Philosopher’s Book, Superior Lidiums dropped to around 3-4b clean and Titanium 6b (still deflating in my server). Fairy Hearts were relatively inexpensive at 2-3b, even though it is on par with Titanium Heart.
  • Finally, Outlaw Hearts are still extremely expensive (despite returning to the game a few times now), due to their unique property of being PSoKable. In GRAZED, you’ll likely need to drop 20-30b for one of these, depending on when you purchase it.

Can I name my Androids?
Yes. You can buy an Android Naming Coupon from the Cash Shop for 1,200 NX. Equipment Modifications > Other > Android Naming Coupon.

Why do you keep miscalling them “Princessroids”?
Out of habit. Their official name is Princessoid 😦

You’re a no-life for writing this much on a topic barely anyone cares about.
You’re right. T.T
