My guildies found the R2 guide for Zodiac a little…lacking, so I’m making one.

Part 1: What is the Zodiac System
A feature for lvl 50+ characters. You can find the icon next to the guild boss icon. You need to enter a birth date to use it; it will not affect your rewards. It’ll just show the corresponding Zodiac for it so it’s just for fun/aesthetic purposes.

The Zodiac system offers 3 purposes: a blessing; a star system for experience, drop rate, and items; and an equipment system for which you may want to do the Zodiac quest. This guide will talk about the features in an order meant to make it easiest to understand.

Part 2: The Quest
Every day you get a random Zodiac quest. It is located in the Zodiac window.

The quest will require to kill one of the four bosses:
Zodiac Soul Eater (Sword): Himeng Valley L1 around Plantona (roughly X:107, Y:77).
Zodiac Soul Eater (Clothing): Cragstone L1 around Berta the Anxious Mother (roughly X:141,Y: 17)
Zodiac Soul Eater (Charm): Windshear Peaks L1, middle of Goblin Pest area (roughly X:118, Y:108)
Zodiac Soul Eater (Shield): Glimmering Plains (not Planes, as is mispelled in the quest description) L1, under Orison. (roughly X: 96, Y:50)

himeng

Other than having different names, each boss is the same. It’s just like fighting Nepenthor. It does decent damage and it has a stun. For newer players, partying with someone stronger is recommended.

  • You must kill the boss your quest requires to get credit.
  • You must have accepted the quest in the Zodiac window. (seriously, I messed up 3 times already because I forgot to accept it and killed the boss for nothing)
  • You can party up and everyone gets the kill
  • Once you have the quest finished, you hand it in the Zodiac window by clicking “Complete”.
  • Note: sometimes when you finish the quest, the quest window goes blank. Just reload your character and it’ll fix itself.

Reward:
Completing the quest will give you a Zodiac Enchantment Stone, and a Zodiac shard that matches the boss you killed (Sword quest gives Sword shard, Shield quest gives Shield shard, Charm quest gives Charm shard, Clothing quest gives Armor shard). These two items are used for making equipment, so I guess the next part should be about equipment.

All rewards are tradable.

Part 3: Epic Zodiac Equipment
Zodiac equipment are 4 new pieces of equipment. They do not replace your old equipment, they go into 4 new slots in the Zodiac window.
There are three colors for the equipment: Epic (purple), Legendary (orange), Awakened (also orange). This section is only about epic equipment. You DO NOT NEED epic equipment to make legendary or awakened, so if you want to go straight to those, you can. However, I imagine a lot of people will make the epic equipment while waiting to have the materials for the legendary/awakened.

To make epic equipment, you need the shards that are earned from the Zodiac quest. In the Zodiac window, click where it says Synthesize and select your epic equipment.

epiclegendary

  • You need 33 shards for the equipment you wish to make (so 33 shield shards for epic shield, 33 sword shards for epic sword, etc..).
  • The equipment has a 100% synthesis and costs 26.99 silver.
  • You need to be level 60 to use Zodiac equipment.
  • Just like regular equipment, you can enchant Zodiac equipment. You can obtain the Zodiac Enchantment Stones from the quest, from other players, or from the cash shop.

Part 4: Lucky Stars 
Before we talk about legendary equipment, we’re gonna cover the lucky stars. Why? Because the lucky star system is how you get stuff for the legendary equipment so….

What are lucky stars?
Every day at reset you randomly get a star from 1 to 7.
The rewards go:

  • 1 star: 2x exp for 2 hours
  • 2 star: 3x exp for 2 hours
  • Note: the zodiac exp stacks separately in the sense that you can have your exp 2x or 3x token and your seignor 2x and your guild 2x and your zodiax exp. However,you cannot have both the zodiac 2x and the zodiac 3x. It’ll use the highest (3x).
  • 3 star: 3x drop for 2 hours. Same idea, it stacks separately from drop token 2x.
  • 4 star: randomly receive a Legendary Zodiac shard. 4 star prize is what will allow people to make legendary equipment. {See Part 6:Legendary and Awakened Equipment}
  • 5 star: Receive a lucky heart. This prize will help you with upgrading blessing. It goes directly to your upgrade. {See Part 5: Blessing}
  • 6 star: Receive 3 (not 1) Legendary Enchantment Stones. This is needed to enchant legendary equipment. {See Part 6:Legendary and Awakened Equipment}
  • 7 star: receive an awakening stone. This is needed to make Awakened equipment. {See Part 6:Legendary and Awakened Equipment}

To receive your reward you have to press “Draw Horoscrope”. You can only draw it once.
However, you CAN get multiple rewards per day if you have crystals. By clicking Reset, it’ll randomly choose stars again and it’ll re-enable your ability to draw the horoscope, thus allowing you to draw multiple times a day.
Now that the star system is explained, we’ll move to Blessing:

Part 5: Blessing
There is a 5-hour zodiac blessing. Just click Bless whenever you want it, but you can only bless once per day. It has 5 levels and you start out with level 1 which gives: 5% PATK, 5% MATK, and +10,000 HP.

To upgrade it , you need to have lucky stars (received from 5 STAR prize above). You need 5 lucky stars to upgrade, when you have them, just click Upgrade. Lucky stars are put directly into the upgrade and are therefore not tradable. So this is a feature that, so far, seems relatively unattainable for those who do not have crystals unless they’re very lucky.

Blessing levels:
Level 1: 5% PATK & MATK 10,000 HP
Level 2: 7% PATK & MATK 50,000 HP
Level 3: 9% PATK & MATK 90,000 HP
Level 4: 12% PATK & MATK 130,000 HP
Level 5: 15% PATK & MATK 200,000 HP

Now back to equipment!

When you hit “Bless”, you only get the patk and matk bonus. That’s because the HP bonus is an automatic stat addition: you have it all the time, every minute of every hour of every day!

Part 6: Legendary and Awakened Equipment
First I’ll say this: you do NOT need epic Zodiac equipment to make Legendary equipment.
However, you need Legendary equipment to make Awakened equipment.

Making Legendary Equipment
Once again, go to Zodiac’s synthesise and this time use the Legendary options. There are 4 pieces of equipment and you need to have the correct Legendary shards.
You can get Legendary Zodiac Shards by drawing from the 4-star prize. This is the only way.They are tradable so you can buy the shards from other players that draw it.

  • You need 33 shards for the equipment you wish to make (so 33 Legendary shield shards for Legendary shield, 33 Legendary sword shards for Legendary sword, etc..).
  • The equipment has a 100% synthesis and costs 26.99 silver.
  • You need to be level 60 to use Zodiac equipment.
  • Just like regular equipment, you can enchant Legendary Zodiac equipment. You can only use the Legendary Zodiac Enchantment Stones from the 6-STAR drawing; they are tradable if you wish to buy from other players and are available in the cash shop.

Making Awakened Equipment
In order to make Awakened equipment, you need to have the legendary equipment of that type.
To access Awakened synthesis, go to Zodiac window and click on Awakening. You can get Awakening Stones by drawing 7-STAR from the horoscope.

awakeningequipment

  • You need 55 Awakening stones for the equipment you wish to make and the Legendary equipment. (So to make Awakened Sword, you need 55 Awakening Stones and the Legendary Zodiac Sword; to make Awakened Shield, you need 55 Awakening Stones and the Legendary Zodiac Shield; etc…)
  • The equipment has a 100% synthesis and costs 56.99 silver.
  • You need to be level 60 to use Zodiac equipment.
  • This is a guess, but I believe you use the Legendary Zodiac Enchantment Stones to enchant Awakening equipment.

Yay, you have read through the entire Zodiac guide.
