    It is not a bug, badges in general don't get ATT past 15* (for whatever reason).

    KMS doesn't have hearts or badges (KMS doesn't have any scrollable badges except maybe the Monster Park ones) that pass the 15 star mark. TMS has successfully been able to implement attack gains from 15+ star hearts for their Outlaw and other 160 heart (*shudders on how they managed to get 300+ attack on it.) We might be the only region that has everything that has access to potential tier 3 and 25 stars every slot (TMS doesn't even have a badge over 70 with potential on it outside LAB.) This bug (or feature) could had been way to prevent us from being TMS 2.0.

    If it's "for whatever reason" how do you know it's not a bug?

    This is likely a bug. The reason being that TMS and Sea versions of Maple didn't have a badge high enough lvl to get attack past 15 stars. JMS on the other hand does.

    GMS is the only region with a level 150/160 pottable badge (TMS highest pottable badge level is 10, JMS and SEA doesn't have any pottable badges just like kms, yea so ghost ship & sengoku hakase are really A GMS Exclusive, even though ghostship comes from singapore, and sengoku comes from japan)

    it's too arbitrary to not be a bug

    if it was on purpose as a balance consideration they would have capped it at 15 star like they did sweetwater item

    Hey Peep,

    It does seem inconsistent that badges don't gain attack past 15 Stars.

    I'll bring this up, Thanks for the report!

    also note that in the event that it's not changed it would mean that stars 23/24/25 give 0.

    0 stat/0attack. There's no way this is intended design.
