This is a very detailed guide on how to complete the Storyline of AQW. There are steps on where to go and what monsters to fight in each area
Although some may already be part way into this, it should help you through whatever problems you have.

Each section is divided, so you can find where you need to go using the table of contents.
And there are pictures to show you where you should be.

We ask that you give us two days after a release to add the material before PMing any of us, but if there is a correction, or something that we’ve missed altogether, please contact us.

* At the end of the First Lord of Chaos’ conquest, you can re-do some quests and see a new cutscene by talking to the Time Faerie by joining Mobius.


The first step to completing the storyline is to complete the prologue. To start the prologue, /join battleon and look for the button that says . Then, click the button that says to begin the prologue.

After watching the cutscene, you will find yourself in an area called Newbie (/join newbie). Follow the trail until you reach the house with a sign that says “Book Wyrms”. Speak with the NPC, Dogear, or click the button that says . Three quests will appear. Finish them in order. All the items you need can be found in Newbie, so you don’t have to travel anywhere else to finish these quests.

  • Jars of Slime: Collect 8 Jars of Slime, dropped by the Slimes in the area.
  • Sneevil Boxes: Collect 4 Sneevil Boxes, dropped by the Sneevils in the area.
  • Behind the Bush?: Click on the feet sticking out of the bush by Dogear to get the Bush Investigated item.

When you finish these quests, a new NPC, Maya, will appear and give you another quest.

  • Defeat Dogear: Go inside the bookstore and defeat Dogear to get the Book of Lore.

Maya will give you the Book of Lore, which you can access at the bottom of your screen to view your progress along the game’s main storyline.

Continue down the path until you meet Robina and Artix. Click the above Robina’s head, read the dialogue, and watch the cutscene. You will find yourself in a new location, Dragonfire (/join dragonfire). Find the Princess, watch the cutscene, and defeat her in battle.

Read through the rest of the dialogue. Congratulations: you are now done with the Prologue!

Chapter 1

Now that you’re done with the Prologue, click the Story button again in Battleon. It’ll show that you’ve finished the Prologue and unlocked the next step: Chapter 1. Click the “Go” button to proceed to Chapter 1.

You will go to Portal, the area just outside the city of Swordhaven (/join portalundead). After a brief cutscene, you can talk to Cleric Dawn to complete an optional quest.

  • Fire Gem: Collect 1 Fire Gem, dropped by the Skeletal Fire Mages in the area. It is a rare drop (but it’s worth noting that the Burn It Down staff, the quest reward, sells for 12,500 gold).

Go down towards the gates and you’ll see a guard lying on the ground.

  • Enter the Gates: Defeat 4 Skeletal Fire Mages.

After you complete this quest, you can enter the gates.

You are now in the city of Swordhaven (/join swordhavenundead). Talk to Artix. He has three quests you must do before you can enter the castle.

  • Undead Assault (Storyline): Defeat 10 Skeletal Soldiers.
  • Skull Crusher Mountain (Storyline): Defeat 8 Skeletal Ice Mages.
  • The Undead Giant (Storyline): Head north from where Artix is until you reach the drawbridge leading to the castle. Defeat the Undead Giant there to obtain the Undead Giant’s Sword.

After completing Artix’s quests, head back to where the Undead Giant was and enter the castle.

You will now be in Swordhaven Castle (/join castleundead). Talk to Robina, who has two quests for you.

  • Talk to the Knights (Storyline): Speak with all five of the surviving knights. Sir Prise is in the lower-rightmost room. Sir Render is in the upper-rightmost room. Sir Junn is in the lower-leftmost room. Sir Pent and Sir Loin are both in the upper-leftmost room.
  • Defend the Throne Room (Storyline): Collect 12 Skeleton Skulls, dropped by Skeletal Vikings and Skeletal Warriors in the area.

Then, proceed to the Throne Room to watch a lengthy cutscene. In the middle of it, you get to choose between Good and Evil. (At the moment, you can change your alignment by clicking the ‘Story’ button in Battleon and playing through Chapter 1 again. Note that it now costs 100,000 gold to change your alignment.)

At the end of the cutscene, a rewards shop will open. Congratulations, you have completed Chapter 1!  

Chapter 2

Now that you have chosen between good and evil, the storyline splits a little. You’ll notice that for Chapter 2, there are separate Good and Evil buttons. Each button will take you to a different zone, where you can do all the quests. (NOTE: No matter what alignment you pick, you can do all the quests for both good and evil. Just return to Battleon and click the other button.)

You will be sent to a much brighter, cheerier Portal (/join portal). Walk through the gate, through an undead-free Swordhaven (/join swordhaven), and back into Swordhaven Castle (/join castle). If you talk to the knight, Sir Ated, you can find the Good Shop, where you can buy items if you chose Good. Head up the stairs, enter the throne room, and speak with King Alteon. You will be asked to recover some chaos-tainted soldiers in an effort to find a cure against the chaos.

Chaos Crypt
You will find yourself at the Chaos Crypt (/join chaoscrypt). Enter the building and defeat the Chaorrupted Soldier. Head downstairs and defeat the two Chaorrupted Soldiers there. Walk down the stairs again and defeat two more Chaorrupted Soldiers. Return to Swordhaven Castle and talk to King Alteon to finish this quest and begin the next one.

Chaos Forest
Talk to King Alteon to get to the Forest of Chaos (/join forestchaos). Proceed forwards into the forest. Defeat every Chaorrupted Wolf in each room (two in the first room, three in the second room, and two in the third room) and proceed to the room with the Chaorrupted Bear. Defeat it, and return to the Castle for your next task.

Chaos Marsh
Talk to King Alteon again to get to the Chaos Marsh (/join chaosmarsh). Talk to Wez. He has four quests for you to complete.

  • The Sabbatia: Collect 20 specimens of Sabbatia, dropped by Chaos Spiders.
  • Grasses: Collect 20 specimens of Marsh Grass, dropped by Chaorrupted Wolves.
  • The Spiders Have Changed…: Collect 15 Chaos Spiders (defeat them).
  • Things that go bump in the night: Bring back 1 Monster Description (defeat the Marsh Smell-O).

You will be sent to Shadowfall (/join shadowfall). It will now appear on your map! Walk into the dragon’s mouth. If you head to the left, you can access the Evil Shop, where you can buy items if you chose Evil. If you head to the right, then right again, you will find Gravelyn. Talk to her, and after some talking, you will be asked to retrieve her father’s armor.

Chaos Crypt
You will find yourself at the Chaos Crypt (/join chaoscrypt). Enter the building and defeat the Chaorrupted Soldier. Head downstairs and defeat the two Chaorrupted Soldiers there. Walk down the stairs again and defeat two more Chaorrupted Soldiers. Head downstairs once again, and you will see Sepulchure’s Armor. When you try to collect it, it will come to life and you will have a boss battle! Defeat it, then click the button that says “Return to Shadowfall”. Talk to Gravelyn to finish the quest and begin the next one.

Uninsurance Money
Talk to Gravelyn, and she will send you to Portal. Continue forwards through Swordhaven, into the Castle, and to the throne room. When talking to King Alteon, click the option that says “Tax Collector”. A ! will appear above the Tax Collector’s (the pig’s) head. Talk to him, and you will find yourself in a prison cell in the Swordhaven dungeons (/join prison). Attack the right wall of the prison to proceed. Move through the prison the same way you did with the Chaos Crypt (defeat all of King Alteon’s Guards: two in the first room, two in the second room, and one in the third room) until you reach the room with the Tax Collector. Defeat the Piggy Drake, and a ! will appear over the Tax Collector’s head. Talk to him, and he will let you into the vault. Collect 5 Gold bars and return to Shadowfall. Speak with Gravelyn to finish the quest.

The First Lord of Chaos: Escherion

Mobius (Part 1):*

Now you can move on to the first lord of Chaos!
To begin, go to Mobius (/join mobius). There will be two people there. Both have the same quests; it depends on whether you are good or evil. Renn is the RuneWarrior on the side of Good, and Zio is the Illusionist on the side of Evil.

  • Winged Spies: Bring back 5 Eyeball Wings: Drops from Chaos Sp-Eye
  • Mobius Survivors: Save 5 Survivors. They have a “Help!” bubble flashing on and off. Starting from the startpoint of Mobius, go up. There are two survivors in that room. Then, go to the room on the left. There are two more survivors in that room. Go up and find the fifth and final survivor.
  • IMP-possible Task: Bring back 5 Imp Teeth. Drops from Fire Imps.
  • You Can’t Miss it!: Bring back Tower Info. From the start of Mobius. Go up the screen. Travel to the left arrow. Go up between the houses to the Portal Area. If done correctly, you will witness a cutscene. You will then have Tower Info. Click ‘Return to Camp’ and give it to Renn/Zio to complete it.
  • Far Sighted: Bring back 5 Cyclops Contact Lenses. Drops from Cyclops Raiders.
  • Slugfest: Bring back 1 Slugfit Scalp. Drops from Slugfit. To get to him, walk up the path through the gate. Go up the right path instead of going left. Slugfit will be in that next room.

All items for these quests are in Mobius.


After completing Part 1 of Renn/Zio’s quests, go through the gate. Once you get to the next screen, enter the horizontal door of the inverted house. This will take you to Anna and Otto (/join otto). During this cutscene, we receive the first look at the First Lord of Chaos, Escherion.


After watching the cutscene in Otto, you should be at the Faeries (/join faerie). The second piece of the Runix cube lies in this new zone, but you need to complete the quests to get it.

  • Chain Reaction: Collect 8 Sneevil Chainsaws, dropped by the Chainsaw Sneevils throughout the area (they shouldn’t be hard to find).
  • Epic Drops: Collect 7 Dew Drops, the pink flowers that appear after you accept the quest. From the screen where you accept the quest, there are: two in the screen to the right, two in the screen to the left, one in the screen left then up, and two in the screen to the left twice.
  • Jarring Theft: Find the Healing Jar, which will be dropped by a random Sneevil in the area.
  • Tree Hugger: Go to the right and up to the purplish tree. Defeat the Cyclops Warlord.
  • The Second Piece: Go to the left and up. You will see a tree with a shining spot in the middle of it. Go to that dot and you will be taken to Aracara. Defeat the spider to get the quest item.

For both of the last two quests, you will need friends to win; the monsters are hard.


Now you can proceed to the Ruins of Cornelis (/join cornelis) to collect the third and final piece to the Runix Cube. Finish the six quests from the green moglin, Anise.

  • Ruined Runes: Collect 8 Gargoyle Chips from the Gargoyles.
  • Energize!: Find the Teleport Info. You will need to look around until you find the teleporter. (Hint: It’s in one of the highest points of the ruins.)
  • Blueish Glow: Collect 10 Blue Gems by fighting the Gargoyles.
  • Quickdraw: Find the Golem. Go back to the teleporter and walk through it. On the next screen will be the Golem.
  • Arm Yourself: Fight the Golem until he gives the quest item.
  • You’ve been framed: Go into the first building. Go up to the big picture on the wall and click it.

Go back to Anise, after turning in the last quest, and click the button that says “Renn and Zio”.

Mobius (Part 2):

After clicking that button, you will unlock four more quests at back in Mobius.

  • Some Assembly Required: After accepting the quest, click the “Runix Cube Minigame” button. You then must complete the puzzle. If you want to skip it, click the Solve button and you get the quest item.
  • Teleporter Report: From where you get the quest: Go up, then to you left, up again and you’ll get the quest item.
  • Disguise!: Beat Cyclops Raiders to get the eight Cloth Scraps. They are located in various places in Mobius.
  • To-Go Box: Go back to Faerie (/join faerie) and defeat the Chainsaw Sneevils until you have all four Cardboard Boxes.


After completing the quest, you will be sent into the tower. You’ll find yourself inside the Tower of Relativity (/join relativity) after a short cutscene. (The entrance to the tower is the blue teleporter in Mobius.) To proceed through the tower, you must finish the quests to unlock various doors.

Ignore the first room and just walk through the door on the north side of the screen. (Be careful to avoid the portal in the middle of the room, as that will send you back to Mobius.) Progress down the stairs, walk up to the door, and accept the quest. You will need one Cyclops Door Key, which is dropped by the Cyclopses in the area. After you complete the quest, turn in the quest and click the “Progress” button.

After walking through the door, walk down the stairs again. Walk up to the door and accept the quest. This time, you will need 6 Keys from the Fire Imps in the area. Find the keys, turn in the quest, and walk through the door. If you head upstairs, you will see a treasure chest that doesn’t do anything as of now. So, head downstairs, ignore the Head Gargoyle, walk up to the swirling, purple-and-black portal, and accept the quest. You will need a key, dropped from the Head Gargoyle, so defeat it until it drops the key, turn in the quest, and proceed through the portal.

Enjoy the cutscene that will bring you back to Mobius.


Now, when you talk to Zio or Renn, you will get sent to where the Lake Hydra is (/join hydra). Accept the quest at the bonfire and head right three screens, or until you see the Hydra’s Heads. Each Head drops a Hydra Tooth, so defeat nine of them. They also drop equipment, if you’re interested in that.

Rune Locations
Starting at the Hydra’s Heads, go left one screen. The first rune is located in that room. Walk up to the runestone and click the X above it three times (be sure not to click it more than three times, or you’ll waste Hydra’s Teeth!).
Go left one screen again. The second rune is located there.
Go left, to where the bonfire is, and head up one screen. The final runestone is located there.
Go down one screen, back to the bonfire, and turn in the quests. Watch the cutscene.


To get to him, go back to where the three Hydra’s Heads were in Hydra, talk to Renn or Zio, or /join escherion. You will see a large, purple portal; go into it to watch a cutscene.

After that, you get to actually fight him. You must kill his staff first; otherwise, you will not do any damage against him. Because his staff respawns often, you need to kill it every time it comes back.

When you defeat Escherion, you will watch a cutscene that will take you back to Mobius. (After the first time, you will stay there unless you click the “Cutscene” button.) Talk to Renn or Zio to access the Good/Evil reward shops for Mobius. Congrats! You are now done with the First Lord of Chaos!

* These zones are marked with an asterisk, because they contain monsters that are very difficult, if not near to impossible to solo. Be prepared to bring friends.

Second Lords of Chaos: Xing and Xang

To see a Sneak Preview for the Second Lord of Chaos, go talk to Warlic in his Magic Shop in Battleon and Select Decisive Chaos!.

The Third Lord of Chaos: Vath

The Pine Forest, Snowbeard’s Tavern, and the Llama Farm:

You can now move on to the Third Lord of Chaos! (Don’t ask us where the Twins went; we don’t know, either.)
To begin, go to Snowbeard’s tavern (/join tavern). Talk to Snowbeard, the dwarf, who will have some quests for you to complete.

  • Adorable Sisters: Talk to all seven sisters throughout the tavern.
  • Warm and Furry: Bring back five Bear Skins, dropped by Pine Grizzlies in the pine forest (/join pines).
  • Shell Shock: Bring back five Red Turtle Shells, dropped by Red Shell Turtles in the pine forest.
  • Bear Facts: Bring back one Chaorrupted Skin, dropped by Twistedclaw in the pine forest.
  • Give Snowbeard his Gold: Bring back Snowbeard’s Gold, acquired at the end of Donna Charmer’s quest chain.

That being said, the next thing you need to do is finish Donna Charmer’s quest chain. Make your way over to the Llama Farm (/join llama). Donna Charmer will have quests for you.

  • The Spittoon Saloon: Bring back six Red Shell Spittoons, dropped by Red Shell Turtles in the pine forest.
  • Bear it all!: Bring back six Bear Teeth, dropped by Pine Grizzlies in the pine forest.
  • Leather Feathers: Bring back eight Leatherwing Feathers, dropped by Leatherwings in the Pine Forest (they’re in the Guru Forest, too).
  • Follow Your Nose: Bring back a Pine Air Freshener, dropped by any monster in the Pine Forest. You might have to kill several of them before it drops.

You should have gotten Snowbeard’s Gold as a quest reward for finishing the “Follow Your Nose” quest, so bring it back to Snowbeard to finish his quest chain. You can now enter the Dwarfhold Keep!

The Mountain Path and Dwarfhold Keep:

From Pines, head one screen to the right of Donna’s Llama Farm, and then head north through the wooden fence. You will find yourself on the Mountain Path (/join mountainpath), which currently has nothing of interest (unless you want to farm some monsters). So proceed along the path until you reach Dwarfhold (/join dwarfhold). Talk to Ironfist, the dwarf elder, who will have more quests for you.

  • Bad Memory: Bring back the Memory Stone. Follow the path until you find a hole with an arrow pointing to it. Go down the hole, and the Memory Stone should be there. There will be a short custcene when you click on it. The quest is automatically turned in.
  • Squeeze Water from Stone Bring back three Water Stones, dropped by Balboas on the Mountain Path.
  • Carrion Carrying On: Bring back six Vultragon Beaks, dropped by Vultragons on Mountaintpath.
  • Bagged Lunches: Bring back eight Food Pouches, dropped by Drow Soldiers in the area.
  • Radiant Lamps: Bring back three Vials of Glow Ichor, dropped by Glow Worms in the area.
  • Having a Blast: Bring back eight Piles of Bat Guano, dropped by Albino Bats in the area.
  • Secret Weapons: Bring back eight Draconian Weapons, dropped by Drow Soldiers and Chaotic Draconians in the area.

You need a key to enter the Upper City. Ironfist won’t have a key for you, but you can talk to Geopetal to forge a key for you. Naturally, she has quests of her own.

  • Rock Star: Bring back seven Limestones, found on the ground throughout the area.
  • All that glitters… Bring back five Gold Deposits, dropped by Drow Soldiers in the area.
  • Gemeralds: Bring back six Chaos Gemeralds, dropped by Chaotic Draconians in the area.
  • Talc to Me: Bring back one Block of Talc, dropped by Albino Bats in the area. Note that you might have to kill several bats before it drops.

Go back to the golden gate to the Upper City. When you try to use the key, it will break, so go back to Geopetal for one last quest.

  • Rock Me Amadeus Bring back one Key Mold, dropped by Amadeus (the mole-monster in the hole).

With this new key, proceed through the Upper City Gates.

The Upper City

Upon going through the gates, you should find yourself right next to Jorxlol. He has quests for you. (Am I the only one seeing a pattern, here?)

  • Disapoofed: Bring back one Vath’s Plans. You should get them when you click on the golden doors in his castle. (Head right, and go inside the golden castle.)
  • Hoodwinked: Bring back 6 Assassin Hoods, dropped by Drow Assassins in the area.
  • Claws for the Cause: Bring back 3 Draconian Claws, dropped by Chaotic Draconians in the area.
  • Scrambled Eggs: Bring back 12 Cracked Eggs, dropped by Chaos Eggs in the area.
  • The King’s Wings: Bring back the Terradactyl Wings dropped by the Terradactyl.
  • Bugging Out: Bring back 3 Beetle Glands, dropped by Rhino Beetles in the area.
  • Lizard Gizzard: Bring back 1 Lizard Gizzard, dropped by the Cave Lizard.

That completes the disguise. Time to enter Vath’s Keep!

Vath’s Keep and the Dwarves’ Prison

Go back to that golden door you went to for the “Disapoofed” quest. You should be able to go through that. Follow the path (through /join vath) until you reach Vath. Watch the cutscene. I’m not going to spoil it for you. But at the end, you will end up in the Dwarves’ Prison (/join dwarfprison). Follow that path until you reach Mick Guyver, who will have even more quests for you.

  • Mock the Lock: Bring back four Balboa Cores (dropped by Balboas), three Rusted Claws (dropped by Albino Bats), and one Magnesium Flare (dropped by Drow Soldiers). All of these monsters can be found in the area.

Go back to the entrance of the dwarves’ prison, where you start off. Click on the metal bars, then return back to Mick Guyver.

  • Jailhouse Rock: Bring back Elfis’ Keyring, dropped by Warden Elfis.
  • Explosives 101: Bring back three Nitrate Elements (dropped by Albino Bats), three Drow Shoelaces (dropped by Drow Soldiers), and two Flint Stones (dropped by Balboas). All the monsters can be found in the area.

Click on the large boulder and watch the cutscene. Now that you’ve freed the dwarves, it’s time to return to Vath’s keep!

The Fight with Vath and the Rock Roc

Return to Vath’s keep (/join vath or talk to Mick Guyver in the tavern). Once again, follow the pathway until you reach the spot where you met Vath the last time. When you walk into the light, you will watch a cutscene. Following that, AQW’s first storyline-related minigame!

The Fight with the Rock Roc (Part 1): Use your mouse to move around, click to shoot a fireball, and hold/release your click to release a continuous stream of fire. When running on the ground, you move slower, but you can also click to eat drow archers to replenish your health. It’s not too tricky of a minigame — just be sure to replenish your health often, as the arrows and the Rock Roc itself tend to whittle your HP down quickly.

After defeating the Rock Roc in the air, watch a short cutscene, and prepare to take him out on the ground. Bring some friends with you — the Rock Roc has 20,000 HP and is not an easy beast to take down. When you’re done, proceed up the mountain towards Vath.

The Rocky Balboas will attack you on the way up, so be careful with them. Watch another cutscene at the top, and prepare to fight Vath himself (along with Stalagbite). They both have smalls amounts of HP, but here’s the catch: Attack Vath, and Stalagbite will deal insane damage (He can and WILL hit you for above a thousand damage); hit Stalagbite, and you will only do a tiny fraction of your normal damage against Vath.


Make sure you have friends with you (and that’s friends, plural, with the s) and attack Stalagbite first. Once Stalagbite is down, attack Vath. If you do it the other way around, Stalagbite will kill each and every one of you without fail.

The battle is long and difficult, but once you defeat Vath, you are treated with another cutscene. Congrats, you are done with the Third Lord of Chaos!

The Fourth Lord of Chaos: Kitsune

The Pirate Ship and Akiba!

It’s now time for the Fourth Lord of Chaos! Kicked off by a war in /join yokaiboat (formerly /join warpirate), this section of the storyline was inspired by Real-Life Artix’s trip to Japan.
If you talk to Cap’n Herlock on the pirate ship, she’ll tell you to rid her ship of the Kappa ninjas. So defeat the two in that room, head upwards, defeat the four in there, head to the right, and defeat the three in there. You can now set sail to the town of Akiba!

Watch the cutscene. Once you arrive at Akiba (/join akiba), head all the way to the right. Talk to Daisuke and click the Story Quests button. Watch another cutscene, and you’ll be shipped to the Dragonkoi Tournament (/join dragonkoi). Head upwards into the arena to battle everyone in the room in a series of one-on-one matches against everyone in the room (Announcer Guy will tell you who your next opponent is). You can talk to them in the waiting room to fight them again if you want to. Be sure to rest between matches!

Now you have completed the tournament, you can collect Reputation at Dragonkioz (/join dragonkoiz). You will fight in 3vs3 matches and can gain rep by completing each quest. The last quest is member only, but the other two you can get even if you are non-member. As you rank up, you will be able to get more weapons in the Reputation shop there.

Hachiko and the return of DT!

Last time we left off with Ryoku charging his “Soul Nuke” attack. You now should return to the tournament (/join dragonkoi) for a cutscene. To watch it, go click on the Announcer and click “Final Battle.” You will watch a cutscene that will unlock a new area and let you access quests from Princess Miko. Right after watching the cutscene, you will be sent to a new location in Akiba, that you couldn’t get to before. From there, you can take four quests from Princess Miko, you must complete all four quests in (/join hachiko):

  • Dog Days: You need to bring back five “Ninja Questioned” and five “Samurai Questioned” to compete this quest.
  • Faceless Threat: You need to bring back one “Note from DT” to complete this quest. Just fight the Samurai until it drops.
  • Zodiac Puzzle Key: You need to bring back one of each of: “Rat-Ox-Tiger Piece,” “Rabbit-Dragon-Snake Piece,” “Horse-Sheep-Monkey Piece,” and “Rooster-Dog-Pig Piece” to complete the quest. This is without question the hardest quest to complete. Only certain monsters drop the items, but here is the key to it. Good luck!


    Each key has three Zodiac animals in its name. Each room in the Hachiko Tower represents a different Zodiac animal. Each key is dropped in the room that its animal is represented in.
    For example, the Rooster-Dog-Pig key is dropped by samurai and ninjas in the rooster, dog, or pig rooms on the third floor.
    How can you tell which room is which animal? There is a sign of some sort — for example, the rooster room has chickens outside of it, the tiger room has claw marks outside of it, and the rabbit room is decorated with carrots.


  • DT: You need to bring back one “Soldiers Rescued” to complete this quest. Just go up to the roof and you’ll find a familiar monster to fight. He drops the quest item.


Return the quest to Princess Miko and you’re done.

The Yokai Shrines

Wander on past the Hachiko Tower to enter the Bamboo Forest (/join bamboo). Ai No Miko will have more quests for you.

  • Jinmenju Tree: Bring back a Jinmenju Clue. To find that, wander the Bamboo Forest (or head up three screens) to find the Jinmenju Tree. Walk up to the shrine behind the SoulTaker.
  • Yokai Bandits: Bring back five Jinmenju Fruit Cores and one Charred Paper Talisman. They’re all dropped by Tanuki in the area.
  • The Fiery Fiend: Bring back a Jinmenju Fruit Bundle, dropped by the SoulTaker by the Jinmenju Tree.

Return the quest to Princess Miko and head to the Junkyard (/join junkyard) by either heading north from the Jinmenju Tree or clicking the Junkyard button while talking to Ai No Miko. You’ll find her again in the new area, with more quests for you.

  • Dumpster Diving: Bring back a Tsukumo-Gami Tribute. To get that, follow the path until you reach the Tsukumo-Gami shrine.
  • Reduce, Respawn, Recycle: Bring back five Wild Kara-Kasa, four Wild Bura-Bura, three Wild Biwa-Bokuboku, two Wild Koto-Furunushi, and one Wild Bakezouri, all dropped by the local Tsukumo-Gami. (It’s not as difficult as it looks. The monsters in the area drop multiple items simultaneously.)
  • The Hunt for the Hag: Bring back one Fresh Liver, dropped by Onibaba by the Tsukumo-Gami shrine.

Return the quest to Princess Miko. Next, head to the Yokai River (/join yokairiver) either by talking to Princess Miko or going back to where the SoulTaker is and heading right instead of up. You’ll meet Princess Miko there again, and she has more quests for you.

  • Su-She: Bring back one Nori Recipe, one Cucumber Recipe, and one Sumeshi Recipe. They’re all dropped by Kappa Ninjas and Funa-Yurei in the area.
  • Kappa Cuisine: Bring back one Kappa Maki Roll. You get this by fighting the local monsters for six Dried Nori Leafs, one Fresh Cumber, and three Bundles of Sumeshi and taking them to the Funa-Yurei Shrine.
  • Hisssssy Fit: Bring back one Nure Snake Skin, dropped by Nure Onna.

After turning in that last quest, head back to the Nure Onna, but continue heading left. You will meet Hashi Hime at the bridge, who will tell you of Kitsune’s past. So talk to her, watch the cutscene, and then continue onwards to the Yokai Graveyard (/join yokaigrave).

As Princess Miko mentioned, she won’t be able to accompany you to the graveyard, but you’ll meet a new character there, Neko Mata, who has more quests for you.

  • The Purrrfect Crime: Bring back ten Skello Kitty Tails, dropped by Skello Kitties in the area.
  • The Face Off: Bring back four Ninja Face Masks and four Samurai Face Masks, dropped by Ninja/Samurai Nopperabo in the area. (Keep following the path upwards until you find them.)
  • Who is the Greatest?: Bring back one Bone of the O-Dokuro. To get to the O-Dokuro, continue following the path up until you reach the new area (/join odokuro). (Note: You WILL need a lot of friends to beat this.)

  • The Deep End: Now you must fight Nessie to get the “Defeated Nessie” quest item. It’s kind of hard to open the gate and may take awhile:


There are three pressure points you must cover to unlock the gate. Walking on the shells will move the statues to cover the points. For each one you need to figure out the correct pattern and timing.

Begin by talking to Rayst in Arcangrove to begin the Mafic storyline:

  • The Great Mana Golem: Find your way to the top of the para-elemental plane and get the “Mana Golem Defeated” item to complete.

Chaos Lord Ledgermayne:

If you’ve made it this far in the storyline, you are ready for the last chapter of Arcangrove! Go to Arcangrove (/join arcangrove), and find your way up the tree past Rayst to get to the portal. That will allow you to enter the chaos lord area (/join ledgermayne). Then you can begin the final quest:

  • Chaos Lord Ledgermayne: Find you way to Ledgermayne and obtain the “Ledgermayne Defeated” quest item.


Every once in a while when you are fighting Ledgermayne, he will charge a super attack and one of the two blackish-gray pads will light up to purple. When that happens, run to the purple pad before the attack hits. If it hits, it can kill you, but if you’re on the safe-zone pad, you will actually get healed a small amount.

It isn’t true. Wolfwing, however, does have an attack that heals himself.

2. How many people do I need to beat Wolfwing?
3 or 4 is better since at low HP, he goes Berserk and does massive damage. Also bringing a healer will make it easier.

(IX) Mythsong

How do I beat the Mythsong Dance mini-game?
Time your keys to get as many of the arrows as possible. If there is one you can’t get, leave it to be sure you get the others. This Minigame will help.

Do I have to do anything to unlock the items in Mythsong?
Nope. With the exception of the reputation items, you don’t have to unlock anything.

But I thought Discordia was the chaos lord…why did it change?
Discordia was under the influence/power of Kimberly so wasn’t in control of his actions.

(X) Arcangrove

How do I defeat the various minigames at Cloister, Mudluk, Mafic, Gilead, and Natatorium?
This Guide on Minigames explains in detail how to defeat each of the minigames.

How do I defeat Ledgermayne?
Every time he starts doing a powerup, run to the pad that is lighted up. When the attack hits, you will be healed if you are on the pad. If not, he will do a lot of damage. After the power up hit, you can continue attacking.
