|Note: This guide is a must read for players new to Odin Quest. In case you didn't figure things out yourself. |
Credits: Thanks to DavidChen for giving me the option to post this guide on a new thread, so I can update it.
Hey there! I decided to make a guide for the newbies to read. I just noticed that new players, especially in the new servers have no idea on where to get good equipment, enhance stones, and star stones.
Table of Contents:
A.)Purple Equipment (Level 50 and 62*WIP*)
B.)Equipment Enhancement and Accesories Star Upgrade
D.)Soulblade and Soul Scoop
E.)Finishing Sub-Quest "Exchange for Soulblade"
G.)Importance of Alliance Donation, Quest and Dungeon
H.)AFK Exp/Soul Farming Spots (72+)
A.)Equipment for lvl 50 and 62
Purple Level 50 Equipment
Location of Burning Church: Frozen Forest > Talsarah > Burning Church.
The best equipment, in my opinion for any player to get at this point are the Purple Equipment you get from farming [Dragonester Fragments] in Burning Church 1F. To get these [Dragonester Fragments] quick, you will need to have the 10x Drop Rate Buff from accepting the Light Sage Quest "Sneak On". Please do note that the [Dragonester Fragments] will be bound when you have the buff on. Also, if you have some spare time after finishing all your quests, just leave your character AFK at Burning Church 1F until server resets all daily quests. But, before you start farming over there, you'll need to at least have your Blue Lvl 50 Sword and Armor, and either, a green or blue Lvl 50 Amulet. Enhancing your Armor to +5 and getting your Ammy to +5 is our top priority for now to get more Defense, so you'll be able to survive in Burning Church without having to use loads of HP potions. After getting your armor to +5, the next thing to go for is the weapon, so you'll be dealing more damage and killing mobs faster in Burning Church. You must be wondering..."+5? I'm having a hard time getting stuff to +4 even. -.-" Well, do not fret, I will cover where you'll need to farm those stones later and get your armor and ammy to +5 in 2-3 days.
Number of [Dragonester Fragments] needed for each piece of equipment:
Helm = 100 pieces
Armor = 120 pieces
Boots = 80 pieces
Level 50 Purp Weapon (100 Fragments) - Can be found in Burning Church 2f Mobs and Boss
Warrior = Glory Sword Fragments
Mage = Rebirth Staff Fragments
Priest = Purification Harp Fragments
Assassin = Psyche Blade Fragments
Hunter = Firedrake Rifle Fragments
Purple Level 62 Equipment
Since the release of Cross-Server wars, it has become possible to upgrade the level 50 purples to level 62 purples, and these have become a very welcome addition to us non-cash players. You can acquire these Justice Medals via Arena Rewards in Cross-Server Wars Button. Do note, you will be needing Arena Points from joining matches in Cross-Server to get these Medals. Arena Points will be given every Tuesdays and Fridays Server Time (GMT - 7 for S1 - S10 and GMT - 3 for ESTS1 - ESTS2).
Requirements for Upgrading:
Weapon - 200 Gold and 100 Justice Medals
Helm - 200 Gold and 40 Justice Medals
Armor - 200 Gold and 60 Justice Medals
Boots - 200 Gold and 30 Justice Medals
B.)Equipment Enhancement and Star Upgrade:
In Pirate Fortress, you'll be given [Pirate Badges] after defeating the Kraken. These badges can be used to exchange for Lvls 1, 2, 3, and 4 Enhance Stones, and Lvls 1, 2, 3 and 4 Star Stones. You're given 4 times daily entries for Pirate Fort, and I strongly suggest that you finish all those entries. Now some of you lvl 40's or 50's would think this is hassle because the mobs take too long to kill. Well, the mobs give out Unbound [Lvl 1 Enhance Stones] and an Unbound [Pirate Ship Log]. The unbound enhance stones, you can sell for some decent gold, if you're not planning on using them. The Pirate Log, if you haven't know yet, gives you an extra chance to enter Fortress, so this means more badges.If you don't have the time to kill all the mobs, just finish the daily quests the Pirate Fort NPC gives you, and go straight to the boss, so you won't consume too much time. After finishing all 4 runs, and submitting the Pirate Trek quests to the NPC, you should at least have around 15-20+ pirate badges per day.
Succes Rates for Enhancement (Without Tokens, Luck Crystals or Alliance Smithy):
+0 - +1 is 100% with a Lvl 2 Enhance Stone
+1 - +2 Is 100% with a Lvl 3 Enhance Stone
+2 - +3 is 100% with a Lvl 4 Enhance Stone
+3 - +4 is 100% with a Lvl 5 Enhance Stone and 75%with 3 Lvl 4 Enhance Stones, I'll check later and edit this bit. Iforgot the success rate.
+4 - +5 Forgot the success rate, but I strongly suggest you use 1 or 2 Lvl 5 Enhance Stones. Will come back and edit this part later.
+5 - +6 3 Level 5 Enhance Stones to get a success rate of 75% without Alliance Blacksmith and other Buffs.
+6 - +7 Around 37.5% success rate with 3 Lvl 5 Enhance Stones without Alliance Blacksmith and other Buffs.
+7 - +8 Around 20% success rate with 3 Lvl 5 Enhance Stones without ALC Blacksmith and other buffs.
Note: To unlock Talsarah Dailies at Medgate Notice Board you have to finish all the Sub-Quests for Talsarh.
Star Stones are needed for you to upgrade your accessories to the next level. You can get them from exchanging [Defender Badges] at Enhance Exchange NPC in Medgate. These badges can be acquired by completing the daily Talsarah Quests from the Medgate Notice Board.Do note though, that the quests from Medgate Notice Board will only be available at level 50 onwards. When you're below level 50, just do the Sub-Quests in Talsarah that gives you Star Stones in exchange for completing the quest.
Success Rate for Star Upgrade:
+0 - +1 100% with 2 level 3 Star Stones (50% each)
+1 - +2 100% with 1 level 4 Star Stone
+2 - +3 99% with 1 level 4 Star Stone and at least level 2 Blacksmith. Without that, around 80%+ forgot the actual figure.
+4 - +5 39% with 1 level 4 Star Stone, so you'll need 2 Level 4s and 1 level 3 to get near 100%. Having Alliance Blacksmith to at least Level 2 helps. A lot.
+5 - +6
+6 - +7 100% with 1 Lvl 5 Star Stone, 2 Lvl 4 Star Stones and at least Level 2 Alliance Blacksmith.
+7 - +8 92% with 2 Lvl 5 Star Stones without ALC Smithy and other buffs. 100% with at least Level 2 Alliance Blacksmith.
+8 - +9 91% with 3 Lvl 5 Star Stones without ALC Smithy and other buffs. 100% with alc smithy.
+9 - +10 Just use at least 2 Level 5 star stones and try your luck. Success rate should be around 40+% with only 2.
Leveling your way to 60+ shouldn't be all that hard with all the good quests OQ has to offer. Basically, all you have to do is aim for 120 activeness each day and make sure you finish all your dungeons. But, if you don't have the time to aim for 120 activeness each day, just be sure to at least do your Daily Escorts, Red Dragon Dungeon, Buffet, Alliance Dungeon, Class Ring Quests, Daily Quest Book, 4 Times Pirate Fortress, Talsarah Dailies from Medgate Notice Board and if you can, join pet comp. Pet competition gives decent exp if you do it 20/20 times a day.
D.)Soul Blade and Soul Scoop
Soul Blades are weapons that accumulates experience and gets stronger as it increases in level. Moreover, each Soul Blade has a skill unique only to itself. Another cool function of SBs are Get Souls and Soul Scoop. Get Souls allows you to get more Soul Points for a cheap price of 50 silver(250 souls increase) the first time of the day, and 2 gold(500 souls increase) the second time around. Now it is important that you get souls everyday, so you'll have more chances to use Soul Scoop.Soul Scoop gives you an HP bonus each time you use it, but don't forget that you need to at least have 100 souls to use this function.
Good Soulbades to get:
Note: You need to be at least level 60 to use one of these.
Greyshield - Defensive Type (240 Greyshield Frags, Can be found in Shrine Church, Exchange at Shrine NPC)
Silverstar - Offensive Type (240 Silverstar Frags, Can be found in Shrine Church, Exchange at Shrine NPC)
SB Transfer Item - Can transfer attributes from your old SB to your new one. (50 Broken Heart Frags, Can be found in Shrine Church, Exchange at Shrine NPC)
E.)Finishing Sub-Quest "Exchange For Soulbade"
Quest Reward: Level 15 Purple Weapon
Ok, a lot of lowbies were asking me how to complete this quest without spending gold leaves. I'm not really good at explaining, so I hope you bare with me on this one. Basically, to complete this quest, you will need to get 16 Level 1 Unbound Enhance Stones from killing mobs in Pirate Fortress. Now, if you're really determined to get this, you'll have to do your Pirate Fortress 4 times a day, and make sure to sweep every single mob. After getting the 16 Level 1 Enhance Stones, we'll be merging these into 4 Level 2 Enhance Stones via the MB button on the lower-right corner of your screen. After that, use the 4 level 2 Enhance Stones to form 1 Level 3 Enhance Stone.
Caution: Please make sure that you only have the unbound enhance stones or you might accidentally merge them with bound ones, thus making the resulting item bound too. Read more about merging in the next section.
Merging is an essential knowledge to any OQ player, since this allows you to merge lower level runes, ehnance stones, star stones and pet evo stones to higher level stones. To go to the merging interface, press the MB button on the bottom-right corner of your screen. Then choose among the options there which you wanna do. Do note that you need 4 lower level runes, star stones and enhance stones to use the merge feature. Also, pet evo stones only require 2 lower level stones to merge.
To get a Level 5 Enhance Stone, you will need to merge 4 pieces of Level 4 Enhance Stones. As for Pet Evo Stones, you will need 2 Pieces of 2 Level 4 Evo Stones to create one piece of Level 5 Evo Stone.
G.)Alliance Quest, Donations and Dungeon, and Why They're Important
Alliances--so called guild and factions in other games--are good places to know people better and to team up doing quests. Now these Alliances have a feature called buildings, which are the ALC Blacksmith and ALC Deposit. The ALC Blacksmith helps by increasing the success rate of enhancements. While, the ALC Deposit is where people can share the rare equipment and items to their fellow members. In order for these buildings to improve, it will require Alliance Wealth, which is acquired by Alliance Members completing their daily quest called "Alliance Quest". So, if you want these cool buildings to improve, you better start doing your part in your own Alliance to make your Alliance be the best.
Alliance donation (CP) is another requirement for an Alliance to grow and level up, because as your alliance level increases, the maximum members allowed in the alliance increases as well. Not to mention, Alliance Skills will be unlocked at each level. Donating CP to your alliance can be done by giving all your materials to Medgate Alliance Donation NPC - Sophia. Please, donate all your mats to your Alliance, since they're pretty much useless to donate to Class NPCs. Why? Because you can get a load of Class Reputation just by doing Class Quests alone.
Alliance dungeon is a good place for you to earn good experience and materials. It is a dungeon where all your alliance members can get in once a day on the activation of your Alliance President or Vice-President. Also, after killing the Dungeon Boss, please do not exit the dungeon, because you are being given Experience every few seconds just by staying idle inside the dungeon.
G.)AFK EXP/Soul Farming Spots (Level 72+)
Meditation is a good way to earn EXP, but imo, it's much better to leave your character farming in Talsarah 2F Level 80/90 Mutinous Soldiers or Flame Messagers. The reason to this is that the mobs here respawn quick, which means more monsters you can hit your AoE with. Also, this is a good way to increase your Souls for your SB, so you can have an even greater HP bonus. Once you reach level 80+, you can also farm on level 88/89 mobs. Some of you might be wondering... why not EXP mobs? Well, here's the reason, the exp mobs spawn 1 by 1, thus your AoE will be rendered useless and this will garner you less EXP. On top of that, it's usually taken by a person already.
If you have any suggestions, please reply in the thread.
