Miracle Cubes tier up rates

As cubing becomes a bigger part of the game, the higher your level reaches, it’s inevitable that you start to wonder what the chance of you tiering up an item is.

Unlike other features with a chance-element in Maplestory, like Gachapon, tier-up rates for cubes are not disclosed by Nexon.

However, it is possible to figure out the tier up rates of each type of cubes by using them a bunch of time and recording the data.

This is what some players of Maplestory did, where they themselves used a bunch of cubes and pooled data from other sources, including long non-edited cubing sessions of Youtubers, etc.

The following chart showing the tier up rate of each type of Miracle Cube in Maplestory is based on their findings, source.

We have gathered our own data from non-edited Maplestory cubing session videos to calculate the tier up rate for bonus potential cubes.

Miracle Cubes that can only tier up to a specific rarity will be marked with ‘-‘ at each tier up they cannot do.

The percentages above are calculated based on many samples (Occult Cube = 1,100, Master Craftman’s Cube = 9,325, Meister’s Cube = 740, Red Cube = 20,670, Black Cube = 9321, Bonus Potential Cube = 248).

This gives us a good estimate of their chance of tiering up, but they are still far from perfect, especially the calculations for Occult Cube, Meister’s Cube, and Bonus Potential Cube, as they have so few samples.

All data regarding these tier ups are from the Reboot server, except for the bonus potential cubes, as they are not available on Reboot.

The general understanding is, however, that the chance to tier up with a specific type of cube is the same on both Reboot and normal servers.

When Miracle Time is live, the chance to tier up an item is doubled.

Based on the estimated tier up rates above, we can calculate the expected number of cubes you need to tier up an item to the next tier at each rarity, as well as the total number of cubes needed to get to legendary.

The number of cubes you need to tier up in the following chart has been rounded to the nearest zero decimal number.
