Giran Castle Town, Magister Kaira
Dark Elf Guild



Quest begins at Giran Castle Town. You must first find the Dark Elf guild building on the west side of town [when heading down the corridor from the center of town, you may have to peer around a little on your left. If you see the guards or blacksmiths, you've gone too far.] Now, begin the quest by talking to Magister Kaira.


In her conversation she basically tells you to go find Monk Metheus who is in the same city, Giran, but by the East exit. [NOTE, to find him by the exit, you have to go to the VERY end of the corridor but before you start heading down the ramp to where the guards wait at the end, you must head RIGHT at the end of the building, and around the corner to where he stands. Look at the path of the arrow in the picture below. The blue building is the temple you're supposed to swing around.]


He tells you to go to Execution Ground and find his little sister's remains. To do this you have to hunt the monster Hanged Man Ripper. In the Execution Ground, at the 1st floor entrance there are many on the left. They are aggressive monsters and if you hit one that is standing too close to another, the other one will react, too. [If you are a cleric class:] If you use disrupt undead, you can kill them in three hits. If you use dryad root and disrupt undead, you won't lose any health at all. If you kill about one of them, you should be able to get the remains. Take this back to Metheus.

Once Metheus receives it, he'll want to take revenge and wants to obtain a vile poison. To do so, you have to go find Master Ixia in Dion Castle Town. Ixia will be in Dion's Dark Elf guild building (near the south entrance).


Ixia will tell you to collect 5 ingredients: Medusa's Blood, Swamp Spider's [bodily] fluid, Corpse Pursuer Bat's secretion, Tilunt/Tyrant's [bodily] fluid, Nightshade's root. You must collect 10 of each ingredient. She will tell you that the Corpse Pursuer is at Execution Ground, Tyrant [Tilunt/Tyrant/take your pick] is in the Wasteland region, Nightshade root can be collected from the Staccatos at Cruma Swamp.

1. Go to Wasteland and hunt the Head Tyrant and Tyrant to collect the quest item Tyrant's Sap. There are many where the first part of the name on the map is [LC's notes: I have highlighted the area in light blue in my map]. Around that area are many aggressive monsters, so be careful.

2. Go towards Cruma swamp and around the area of the giant's tower [giant's tower = Cruma Tower], you will see the Marsh Stakato, Marsh Stakato Drone, Marsh Stakato Worker, and Marsh Stakato Fighter. From them you can collect 10 of the Nightshade's Root.

3. In the same area as the Marsh Stakato's, you will see the Swamp Spider. You can collect 10 of the Swamp Spider's fluid from them.

4. Go to Execution Ground and look at the marked area on the map to find the Corpse Pursuer [Note: English client's name may be Dead Seeker.. I have to check] to get the quest item Corpse Pursuer Bat's Secretion.


5. If you exit Giran through its Eastern entrance and follow the road, a while later you'll be able to see the Amber Basilisk, Turek Bugbear, Harpy, and also the Medusa. The Turek Bugbear and Harpy are aggressive, so be careful and go hunt the Medusa. You will need to collect 10 of the quest item Medusa's Blood.

Once you return to Ixia, she will make the quest item Belladonna and tell you be careful with it since it can even kill a bull with one hit. You will now need to take the Belladonna back to Monk Metheus in Giran.


Metheus will give you the quest item Elder's Skull which you need to take back to Magister Kaira in the Dark Elf guild. Kaira will tell you to go find the elder's descendant Magister Roa. Roa is in the HUman Wizard guild [way to the right of Giran, but you have to go around the temple to the right, go around the corner and cross a bridge to reach it]


On the item there was a mark saying "Gludin Town Warehouse" so now you have to go Gludin Town and talk to Warehouse Keeper Norman.


Norman will give you a book as a quest item. Now you have to return to Kaira. [ NOTE: you may need to be level 38 at this point according to a player. ]


You'll have to go to the Dark Elven Village and find High Tetrarch Thifiell. Spend 4300 adena at the gatekeeper and go to the dark elven village. To the right of the gatekeeper is where the tetrarchs stand [up the stairs].


He will send you off to Sorceress Akenia [sorceress/shaman/witch]. She stands at the Dark Elf Initiation Altar. You can pay the gatekeeper 1,100 adena to be teleported to the "Southern area of the Dark Elf forest" and land around the swampy area closeby.


She will tell you collect the quest item Red Fairy Dust and Ti Mi Riran's Sap. To get the red fairy dust, ou have to talk to a bloody pixie and to get the sap you have to talk to a Ti Mi Riran. In the field area surrounding the altar you'll find a few of the pixies and rirans distributed.


Ti Mi Riran will ask you to kill Black Willow Lurker and the bloody pixie tells you it will give you the red fairy dust only if you kill the following: Grandis, Karul Bugbear, Breka Orc Warlord, Leto Lizardman Chief/Warlord They will give you a skeleton [something. word is blurred in the picture]


You can find the black willow lurker between the school of dark arts and the unmarked mountain/waterfall area where it is circled on the map. You will be able to kill it quickly and safely. You only need to kill one. It looks like an undead tree. The Ti Mi Riran's request can be completed quickly, but the bloody pixie's takes quite a bit of traveling on foot.


The Breka Orc Warlord can be found in the Giran town area on the right side on the road to Dragon Valley. If you exit out of Giran Castle Town through its south entrance and follow the road and go to the west, you'll see many of them.

Ok, so now you've collected all of the ingredients. ^^ Go back to the Dark Elven region to the initiation altar and talk to Akenia. From those ingredients she can finally make the red ink.


So now you can go to the High Tetrarch Thifiell to get the final quest item.


Thifiell will give you the final quest item, Fate's Voucher

Congratulations, you have completed the Test of Fate!
