Numen: Contest of Heroes
Guide by: Kratosraine
Ver. 1.01 - 2/13/2012 - The guide continues to expand. The main quest is
done. Filled in some of the other missing quests. Added a Table of
Contents, or you could always just use Ctrl + F (Find) to find what you are
looking for. There still may be errors, I will play through the game 1 last
time as the ranger to verify what I have is correct and through enough.
Ver. 1.00 - 2/11/2012 - This is the barebones guide to the main story and a
few side quests. A few of the side quests are not currently complete, or I
missed them during the first writing of this guide. Something's may not go
into great detail at this point. But as the guide progresses more things
will be addressed. Also there may be spelling and grammar errors, I'm not
an English major. So please be polite when pointing them out.
Note from the Author - This game is kind of terrible. It had plenty of
potential, but it seemed squandered. I really enjoyed the premise but some
aspects of the game could have been done better. And the layout of the game
can get on people's nerves as well, a level 50 dungeon next to a level 20
dungeon. But I digress on with the guide.

END NOTES - E1
Rules about the Game - There are 3 bars next to your character's
profile. The Green on is Hit points, the Blue one is Magic points, and the
3rd is endurance. Magic will always regenerate. But after your endurance
bar is completely empty you will no longer regenerate HP. This really
effects you until you have a healing ability, especially the Mage after they
get their heal spell you don't really need to go to camp fires. And to
regenerate endurance points you need to go to a camp fire, and you can
either rest or rest until the next phase of day. This is also the only
place where you can save it. Camp fires do an auto save once you get to the
fire, but if you want to save on a different file you need to select that
Another note: I've played through this game 3 times now and I've
noticed that you do not need to repair equipment. The rate at which you
will get new gear, the old gear hasn't broken down. It is not super
expensive to get the gear fixed, but any money you can save is great.
More Chatter: Buy the upgraded bags as soon as possible. They do cost
a bit but the space is more than worth it. If you can go ahead and buy the
largest on possible. That will save you money and greatly increase how much
loot you can carry.
Strange note: When playing as the Ranger I've notice that special
abilities do not take up arrows. So if you spam special abilities you will
not need as many arrows. It's not like they are super costly, but running
a hero is like running a business. It's all about profit, and gear.
Merchant note: The Merchants in this game sell some super nice gear
but in all of my play throughs I haven't had enough money to buy any of it.
To be honest the gear that I get from normal monsters is more than enough
to push through the game. I recommend only selling to merchants, as you
can always kill more monsters for good gear, and experince as well.
At the beginning of the game you are asked the either select the boy or
girl, it does not matter which one you chose as it is for aesthetics. Then
you name your character. You are greeted by a movie, there aren't too many
in this game. And then you actually start playing the game.
A1 *Guide Start*
You automatically run out and talk to your Uncle, Tarrius. He starts
complain about how sheltered you have been and that you should go kill some
things, and he tells you about the other 2 teachers for the other classes.
He is the trainer for the "Way of the Warrior." Theopon, by the bridge is
the trainer for "Magic Affinity." And Leodokles, by the camp fire, is the
trainer for "Nature's Wisdom." The point at this stage of the game is to
run into your sibling, either boy or girl depending on who you chose, 3
times while raising one of these traits. All 3 of the trainers have a quest
for you to do to learn new abilities on the class that you wish to become.
As you talk with each one yhey will give you the tool of their trade.
Tarrius will give you a dagger, Theopon will give you wand, and Leodokles
will give you a bow and arrow. Use the ability that they give you to
increase your ability in your chosen class.
A good ability to keep on your hot keys is "Combat Sense," as it
allows you to see enemy levels. This ability can keep you out of trouble as
some areas of the game are death traps. Some areas of the game will have
higher levels of enemies that others, I will point these out as the guide
progresses. Another item is the "Spade," if you do not go through the mage
quests you will not pick this up. It is needed for a few parts of the
story, and costs 40 Drachmas.
*Class Quest* Warrior - "Never-ending Fight," you get this quest from
Tarrius at the beginning of the game and it will reward you with a Warrior
ability. This quest is easy, all you have to do is kill the wolves just
outside of town. All you have to do is go south from the town, cross the
bridge. And the wolves are right there, they level between 12 and 16. Kill
5 of them for your Uncle. You receive 26 experience points for doing this
*Class Quest* Warrior - "Curious Eyes," you get this quest from Tarrius
after you complete the "Never-ending Fight Quest." Before you do this quest
Tarrius teaches you your second Warrior ability, Maim, which deals Damage
over time. Your Uncle mentions that pirates have come to the island and are
looking at possibly looting it. So he wants you to kill these leaches
before they can scout the island. The Pirates are located just south of the
Boatman, the blue circle on your map. One is Level 13, and the other is
level 19. You can either talk them down, or kill them. Both of these
options complete the quest. For this quest you get 36 experience from
Tarrius, your Uncle.
*Class Quest* Mage - "Mysterious Scroll," you get this quest from Theopon.
In this quest your are looking for a scroll that is hidden. Using this
hint: "Find the four. The three are still proud and standing. Use your
shovel to dig near to where what was once alive is dead. Let's see if
you're smart enough..."
First you need to buy a spade. The merchant is marked on the map with a
little above his head under a V. It costs 40 Drachmas.
This is something that you should have for the entire game as there are a
few times in which you have to use it for the story. The dead tree is south
of town, by the ruins. All you have to do is dig somewhere close to the
tree and you will find the Scroll. For this you get "Shadow Curse," the
Mage damage over time spell.
Sorry no Experience.
*Class Quest* Mage - "Scorpion Tails," you get this quest after you complete
"Mysterious Scroll," from Theopon. In this quest you must get 4 scorpion
tails from the Scorpions. If you do not get the scorpion tails from the
scorpions you will have to use the camp fire to rest until night and kill
the scorpions again. The Scorpions are located to the East of the village,
or north of the camp fire on the southern side of the island.
They range in level between 13 and 16.
You get 36 Experience for completing this quest.
*Class Quest* Ranger - "Save the Herd," this quest is given to you by
Leodokles. There are spiders that are killing his herd of sheep. All he
wants you to do is kill 5 of them. These spiders are located east of the
town, by the first dungeon of the game. They level between 12 and 13.
For completing this quest you get 26 experience and the ability
"Slash Vein," the Ranger Damage over time ability.
*Class Quest* Ranger - "Tears of Night," this quest is given to you by
Leodokles after completing the quest "Save the Herd." Leodokles wants you
to get him 5 flowers called "Blue Tears." But these flowers only appear at
night. So what you need to do is go to the camp fire and rest until night
time. You can tell these flowers from the other shrubbery is that they are
ill placed, meaning that they hover over the land and don't connect to it.
The 5 are located, starting from the camp fire, go north until you get
a little south of the island on the map. From there go Southeast to the
fenced in area of the town, where sheep are kept. From the last one keep
going east until you get to the ruins east of town, right before the
entrance next to the fallen pillars is one. Just east of the last one, on
the hill after the dungeons entrance. And the last one is south of the
spider area in the scorpion area, if you follow the path south you
can see it. There is another one just east of the southern bridge. Now
rest until daytime and then turn in the quest. For this you get 36
experience and 400 basic arrows.
*Other Interest* Your First Dungeon. This dungeon is located just to the
East of the village in the spider area. The enemies here level 14. This
dungeon is pretty straight forward, all you have to do is kill wolves and
spiders until you get to the furthest room to the northwest. For killing
these beasts your are rewarded with a treasure chest, it usually contains
money and a health potion. Treasure Chests respawn, so if you really need
the money you can rest at the camp fire and come back to re-loot the chest.
*Main Quest* - Finding your sibling. This quest isn't listed but you need
to do this to advance the game. You need to find you sibling 3 times before
you can continue the game. The first location is south of the spider area,
north of the scorpion area. It is marked on your map. The second location
is just west of the boatman, but you need to advance the time by resting
before they'll appear. You also need to complete the 2 quests that you
get from your Uncle Tarrius: "Never-ending Fight," and "Curious Eyes."
You do not have to do any other quests than those, but this will
automatically make you a Warrior. But doing the other class quests are
recommended for the experience points.
So if it's day you need to rest until night, and vice versa. Again it is
marked on your map when they show up. Talk to them a second time. And the
third time is next to the camp fire in town, again you need to advance time
by resting and this is marked on your map. After this a new area of
interest is opened on your map, the first dungeon you have to enter.
*Main Quest* Your Sibling the fool. This is not listed on your quest log
either, but it needs to be done in order to move the story along. After you
talk to your sibling for the 3rd time they mention finding a treasure. This
opens up the first actual dungeon of the game, which is located south of the
town. You should get the tip that a new location of interest has been
found, and on the map a cave entrance should be on your map. This dungeon
is pretty straight forward. You can see the location of where you need to
go by the Green Exclamation Point. Enemies range from 14 to 15. There is
treasure chests in here so if you go straight to the quest marker you will
not miss anything. Once you get near your target you have to fight a foul
scorpion, level 15. Then you can talk with you sibling. And you find out
that they have been poisoned. And are automatically removed from the
*Main Quest* Finding the Cure. This is the first story quest mentioned in
the game. So you have to find someone who knows how to cure this poison.
You need to talk to Prepis, he is just northwest of your house during the
daytime. He mentions that you need even stronger poison, Black Amber, to
help your sibling out. So at night time go to the Scorpion area. You
should see a giant half scorpion half person walking around, this is Black
Amber. It is level 17. You many need to pull some of the other scorpions
first, as the battle can get a little hairy with 3 or 4 scorpions and Black
Amber. So pick up the Black Amber venom, remember that you cannot loot
during battle. And return to Prepis during the day. After he makes the
antivenin talk to your Uncle Tarrius. He tales you that your sibling has
died and that you did all that you could. He mentions that if he were
younger that he'd take his body to Mount Parnassus to make his funeral pyre.
*Main Quest* Find a way of getting from Leros to Mount Parnassus. First you
need to talk to Syllaios the boatman. He is the blue circle on the map. He
says that he will take you to Mount Parnassus for 150 Drachmas. If you need
to go to the merchant and sell your unwanted items, this should easily make
you the money to travel. If it doesn't that you can go into either dungeon
to make the money. After you pay him the money you get to Mount Parnassus,
a cold place. You need to talk to Kobon, who is just in front of you also he
is marked on the map. This adds the quest a "Place for Final Rest."
What you need to do is collect 4 wolf pelts. Once you leave the
village heading west kill all of the wolves (Level 14) that you can. If you
get to the Lesser Snow Giant, then turn around and go back to the camp fire
as he is level 30 and will kill you quickly.
If the first set of wolves do not yield the pelts then go to the camp
fire and rest until you get all 4 that you need. Return to Kobon when you
have all 4. After that you are greeted with another movie.
*Main Quest* Choosing your God - This quest is not listed but happens right
after you give all 4 wolf pelts to Kobon. Whichever Mastery you have
decided to follow; Way of the Warrior, Magic Affinity, or Nature's Wisdom.
This is where you will get to choose what God you follow, and the abilities
that you get for following that God. I just want to say that I think that
all of these are kind of useless. Now I have only played the game twice,
once as a Mage and the other as a Warrior. And the abilities do not seem
that great, so you can get by without them. But continuing on. You are
greeted by Iris, messenger of the Gods, she tells you that you may be needed
in the near future.
So that if you are the best even someone can be brought back from the dead.
And then she makes you choose a God to follow of your chosen class.
*Main Quest* Find the temple of your God and talk to the Priest. This quest
is marked on your map. As the eastern side of Machatar have the temples.
You just need to find the one of the God you have decided to serve. Your
priest tells you that the "Sickle of Kronos," has been stolen and that it is
your duty as your Gods follower to bring it back. He explains that the Gods
do not like to see you working together, but doesn't want the other
champions killed. But if you can trick them, or humiliate them in the
tournament, your God will favor that. This is where you will learn your
skills, and God abilities. So remember this place.
*Main Quest* "Visit Misarica on Imbros and do all you can to make her help
you." So go to the Western boatman, Osidios, and have him take you to Imbros
for 320 Drachmas. Misarica's cave is just south of the landing point / camp
fire. If you want you can fight your way to the other quest on the island,
Green Exclamation Point. Enemies rank between 19 and 24. Once you enter
the Cave you are greeted by one of the other heroes. It is at this point in
which you can either; give them the wrong directions (in that case they will
die and you get God favor), the right directions (nothing happens), or let
them chose (where they chose the correct path anyway). So DO NOT GO WEST,
this is a level 50 dungeon. You will be slaughtered. The correct path is
Once you go East and look at them map you can see where you need to go.
The pirates are level 22, the skeletons are 23-24, and the spiders are 23
-25. There is a treasure chest in the nook north of where Misarica is. And
just north of the camp fire. Once you reach Misarica's layer she talks
about how you killed her pets and that you didn't bring any presents. Now
you have to run around as a spider from the East end of her cave back to
where she is without dying. Just a note you can't strafe either, it kind of
sucks but it is not a real big deal. You can die be you will go back to the
start, where you spawned. If you've killed the enemies than this is a piece
of cake, but if you haven't then just run from them. Once you have made it
back to Misarica she will ask you to kill the ghouls outside of her cave for
3 eggs, the quest is called "Misarica's Belongings," of her pets. Her pet
spiders will no longer attack you in the cave. All of the Ghouls are
located outside of her cave. Just keep killing Ghouls until you have the 3
eggs, and if you need to rest and let them respawn. Return to her after you
have killed enough Ghouls to get the eggs. You get 1396 experience for this
*Main Quest* Love Lost. You get this quest after you complete "Misarica's
Belongings," quest. She wants to be reunited with her long lost love,she
was chosen to be an oracle early on. And the Gods turned her lover into a
blue bird who has been hanging around her cave. She gives you a scroll to
use that will lead the bird to her cave. To find this bird you must head to
the southwestern side of the island. On a log, glowing, there is a tiny
bird. Use the scroll on the bird to complete the quest. Then return back
to Misarica. She tells you about Telos and how he stole the "Sickle of
Kronos." But first you need to go back to your temple and talk with your
*Optional Quest* - Helping Agenta out. She is asking for 150 Drachmas. She
will not leave with you, as she prefers to travel alone. If you don't pay
her she will be in the bar on Machatar and will talk bad about you. If you
chose to help her she gives you a scroll to a buried treasure. So once you
read the scroll you need to go back to Imbros and find out where this
treasure is buried.
Just south of Misarica's cave, southwest of the mountain on the map is
where the treasure is buried. It is a Ring of the Gods which increases all
abilities by 1, except Dexterity which increases by 2.
*Main Quest* Find a temple of you God and talk to its priest. There is
only one temple of your God so go back to where you learn skills and talk to
him about what has transpired. This also opens up the "Looking for Talos,"
quest. After you talk to your priest he mentions that he only cares about
what his God makes, not Hephaestus. So talk to the Priest of Hephaestus, he
is located northwest of the arena ferryman and should be marked, and he will
tell you nothing. Go to the bar and buy a bottle of wine and give it to
him. It costs 330 Drachmas the barkeep is also marked on the map, east of
the boatman Osidios.
*Main Quest*"Find the mechanical man Talos somewhere on the Plains of
Renouncement." Go to the teleporter it is located almost north of the Arena
ferryman, a little northwest in between the mountains on the map. After
exiting it you are now in Cyrene. Lysikles will not take you anywhere yet,
so do not bother. Mynnakos will ask for 50 Drachmas to help repair the
village. Then he will tell you about a lost caravan somewhere in the
desert and you should talk to Hargeb. He is located by the camp fire on the
southeastern side and he should be marked. At this point he will take you
to either the Plains of Renouncement or where the body was found, aka the
*Main Quest* "Ruins of Renouncement." The enemies here are 32-34. On the
North half is the Warghir and on the southern half is the Machine men. Our
goal is to the east of the Camp fire and through a camp of Warghir. Tucked
away behind their camp is a cave, that is where our next quest location is.
Once you enter the cave and open the map you will see where our next
destination is, the east side of the cave. The Warghir in this cave are 36
-38. At the end of the cave you will meet Paradigm and he/it will explain
about Talos. He will give you 2 quests: "A Sound that is Key," and "Tomb
*Main Quest* "Tomb of Talos." After talking with Paradigm he mentions that
Talos tomb is guarded by a big metal machine. And you have to destroy it to
gain access to his tomb. It is called the Mechanical Wonder and it is level
44. It will heal itself with its healing node and you have to destroy it so
it doesn't heal, and it will heal itself for a pretty good amount. Inside
of the cave there are level 43 Brass Guardians. Once you make it to the
back of the cave, there are only 4 Brass Guardians. Open up the Tomb and
find that Talos isnot there and this opens up another quest.
*Main Quest* "The Dead End." You get this after opening the Tomb of Talos
and not finding him there. You must now go back to Paradigm, who is in the
cave atthe western end of the Plains of Renouncement. After talking to
Paradigm youlearn that the Warghir have something that belongs to the man
who took Talos. This opens up another quest.
*Main Quest* "Something Shiny." You receive this quest after talking to
Paradigm the second about the location of Talos. Go outside and kill
Warghir until you get the item "Brooch." This will open up the next part of
the quest to Find out someone who knows about the brooch. Go back to
Cyrene at talk to Lysikles and give 650 Drachmas to be taken where the man
went with Talos. After this you arrive at the Coast of Stageira. Here the
enemies are level 48-49. The goal here is to talk to both Heroes that
appear, one appears after the other leaves. After you talk to both of them
they give you scrolls and then next part of the quest opens up. At this
point you have one of two options gather Harpy Feathers or find the mask.
Finding the mask is easier to do. But I will talk about both quests.
*Main Quest* "Prismatic feathers." You get this quest by choosing to find
the feathers instead of the mask. Keep killing the Harpies until you get 4
Prismatic feathers from them. Then return to the Second hero on the island.
You get 41610 experience points for completing this quest.
*Main Quest* "The Ritual Mask." You get this quest if you choose to find
the mask rather than the feathers. This is the easier of the quests. At
night you will see a blue spot on the ground in the eastern part of the
island. There will be a message that says "The ground seems soft here."
This is where you dig. After you find the mask return to the hero to
receive 41610 experience points.
*Main Quest* "Hidden Entrance." You get this quest after either: "Prismatic
feathers," or "The Ritual Mask." At about the middle of the island you
should have seen a strange stone altar. Use the Feathery Mask on the
strange alter to open our next location, just click on the rock to use the
mask. Once you enter the cave the Hero that helped you complete the mask
will rush into the cave. At this point they will be marked on the map. At
this point you can either help them or let them die. There is one enemy in
this cave Autolycus, and he is level 52. Be careful this is another boss
fight. After you take off so much health he will disappear and spilt. If
you kill his clones you get experience from that, but he will heal himself
fully afterwards. After every time he splits he we wait longer to split
again. Defeating him gets you 37281 experience points. Talking to him he
gives you the "Ring of Deflection," you do not have to equip this now. Then
the next main quest mission opens.
*Main Quest* "Voice in the Darkness." You get this quest after defeating
Autolycus. You now need to go back to Misarica's island, Imbros, and talk
to her again. This opens up the "Precious maps," quest which resides in her
cave as well.
*Main Quest* "Precious maps," you get this quest from Misarica after
defeating Autolycus. She hates visitors and now she wants you to kill the
pirates that have made a home in her cave. But to be gone for them for good
you need 3 maps that will get them lost at sea and never to return. This is
located on the west side of the first room, if you sent the hero in here
they would have been killed. Then enemies are 52-55. You are looking for
the treasure chest that contain the 3 maps. You will also find a note
talking about how a whistle was stolen by the Amazons and he wants it
back,This quest will be done later in thegame. After you find the 3
treasure chest that contain the maps head back to Misarca for the next task.
You get 39044 experience points and the next quest.
*Update* I drew a map of the labyrinth and uploaded it to approved sites.
The dungeon is bad, but not really so when you look at the map.
Remember that you can use the torch to light the way to help make it
easier to see.
*Main Quest* "Blood of the Minotaur." You get this after getting the maps
for Misarica in her cave. Head back to Machatar and talk to the boatman
Osidios. Ask him to take you to Arkadia and it cost 310 Drachmas. The
enemies here are 54-57. There is another hero here and they ask if you kill
the minotaur to give them it's horns. So the area to the south, were there
are pirates, in where the labyrinth is located. Once you reach the pirates
they ask you who you are. You can either run away, see their leader, or
just kill them. If you don't want to fight the pirates then ask to see
their leader and tell him you will give him half of the Minotaur's blood.
Once you enter the labyrinth you have no map function. So my advice
is to follow a wall until you get to the Minotaur, a map or directions will
be added in later updates. Once you make it to the camp fire that is where
the Minotaur. It is level 58. If his attacks hit for too much damage you
can go to Sykros, the island of Amazons to level up a bit. What he does is
summons Hissing Skeletons, who are about his level and only take 1 hit to
kill. He also drops a rock on you that deals a great amount of damage, the
Mage can easily heal from this. If you have more serious problems you can
always use Cheat Engine to edit that value (0E096304) I believe is the
correct value. You get 51091 experience points for kill the Minotaur.
You now have to leave the dungeon, I did not have the scroll that takes
you back to the Temple of your God so I do not know if that works. But I
recommend that you follow a wall, left or right, back out of the labyrinth.
After you leave thelabyrinth the hero that showed up on the island will move
closer to the boatman Osidios.They will talk to you and ask for the
Minotaur's horn. You can either take the 3000 Drachmas, or give it to them
for free. But if you give it to them for free you lose 10 God Favor. After
that you can return to Imbros and Misarica's lair for the next quest in the
series, and 86660 experience points.
*Main Quest* "Dog and his Master." You get this quest after killing the
Minotaur taking his blood and giving it back to Misarica. This quest is
pretty vague, but what you need to do is go back to Mount Parnassus. There
was a teleporter there that didn't work at the beginning of the game. Now
it does and you can enter it to the final area of the game. The enemies
here are 67-71. You also run into Coaxis, a guard from the beginning of the
game and Leodokles, your uncle. He talks about how you have changed and
become strong. Our goal is a cave on the western side of the map. You
watch a movie about a monstrous dog, the one you've been looking for.
Orthrus is level 74, and if you have the whistle he will point you in the
direction of his master, which is a tiny cave, but you still have to kill
him either way. This battle is not that bad, it's easier than the Minotaur.
You get 85910 experience for completing the quest. And a new story
*Main Quest* "Find the Master of Orthrus." You are given this quest after
you kill Orthrus. So if you had the whistle and used in during battle
Orthrus will show you the entrance to the cave, if not it is on the eastern
side of the cave. There is a path leading to it you can just follow it
around if need be. After entering the cave there is a camp fire. Pay
attention to this map as one way is greatly longer than the other, if you
need the experience then go the long way. The enemies here are 71-76. The
objective is to make it to the next camp fire on the eastern side of the
map. After you reach here this will be the last zone of the game, do not
worry there is a save point in there as well. As soon as you walk through
the door make sure to equip the "Ring of Deflection," you will get a saying
that mentions that it feels differently. You will need this to beat the
This location is called Kythera and only contains 2 enemy types. One
is Greyon's Fire Minions, they are level 79, and then the final boss Titan
Geryon, he is level 81. If you need experience or gear this is the place to
do it. There is a camp fire in the southern portion of the map just in case
you need to respawn the enemies or work on gear. Do not walk in the lava as
it will hurt you. Once you get close to Titan Geryon a movie will play and
that is followed by him talking. The key to winning this is using the
"Deflect," ability. Once he stops attacking and his swords is covered in
fire, or just glowing, use the ability and it will hurt him greatly. If you
fail to do this he will massively critical hit you. It won't cause death
but you can only take a couple of these. If you follow that he really isn't
too bad. After you kill him he drops some loot......psyche he really does
drop loot but you cannot loot him and the final movies plays and the game is
over. You also get 121,000 experience as well, but that is also useless.
*Optional Quest* "Lost Caravan." Enemies here are 24 to 27, watch out for
the Warghir seer they have a nasty spell that can eat you HP if you are
under prepared. If you head counterclockwise around the circle you will
find a dead body, and after you loot it you will get "Nautical Device," in
your inventory. And if you head clockwise around the circle and take east at
the fork you will come to a cave. The enemies are 26 to 28. At the south
end of the cave there are some stairs leading down to the next level. And
you continue down to see some dead people around a closed gate. Near these
people is a small box, pick that box up and that will get you the quest item
to complete this quest. And if you need to there is a camp fire down here
so you can rest and save. You can now head back to Mynnakos for your
reward. You get 1704 experience points for his quest. And he gives you
another quest after this.
*Optional Area* "Lost Expedition." After the quest "Lost Caravan," is
complete there are still things that can be done. There is a cave to the
northwestern side of the Expedition that can be explored. The enemies here
are 26-27. There is some treasure here but truly nothing you can't miss.
The Warghir have some treasure outside this cave as well. To the Southeast
there is another hero. Who you can either help, or let die.
*Optional Quest* "Hidden Treasure of the Nile." During the night time find
Chabes, he is marked on your map north of the teleporter. Answer his
questions and then he will let you into his basement. After this you
complete the quest; however, you now need to escape his basement dungeon to
turn in the quest. These enemies are 32-34. The Sorcerer Ghouls can be a
pain because they can heal themselves, not all the time just every so often.
There is some treasure here, but nothing that you cannot miss. You are
heading for the red arrow on the map, to the east side. As that is where
the steps leading out are. And once you make it out you can talk to
Mynnakos during the day for your reward. You get 2510 experience points.
You can either take the 50 Drachmas or threaten him for 100, I didn't see
anything different about doing either one except the money.
*Optional Quest* "Nightwine." Talk to Polydamna at night in Cyrene, she is
marked and is standing by the lighthouse on the land just northwest of the
western camp fire. She wants 2 things from you. 1 - Oily Shellfish, these
are found in the waters of Cyrene at night. Be careful that you don't drown
picking these up. They are small black shells that can be hard to see, but
once you see one the others become easier. You need 4 of these. And the
other part is 5 teeth of a Mal-Maghadu. To get these you need to kill the
Warghir in the Plains of Renouncement. Any Warghir will do, just keep
killing them until they drop all 5. When getting these keep a look out for
the sand, if you see teeth come out of the sand do not walk into that area.
The Mal-Maghadu will rise up and hit you for half you health. The enemies
on the Plains of Renouncement are 32-34. If you need more camp until night
then try again. I also have never gotten any in the cave on the Plains of
Renouncement, but I could be wrong as the drop rate is pretty bad. And you
get 2510 experience points for this and another quest. *Note* This first
time I did this quest it bugged out and I had to restart the game to get it
to show that I have all of the Oily Shellfish.
*Optional Quest* "Lost Brother." You get this quest after completing
"Nightwine," from Polydamna. The body is in the Lost Expedition where you
get the Nautical Device. Stand on top of the body and use the Spade to bury
the body. Looting his body and burying it completes the quest, you can now
head back to Polydamna to get your reward. You get 3644 experience points
and yet another quest.
*Optional Quest* "Into the Unknown." You get this quest from Polydamna
after completing the "Lost Brother," quest. If you go back to Machatar and
talk to the boatman Osidios and ask him "I'm looking for someone to sail as
written in these notes." He'll mention that his business is thriving and
that he doesn't need to do that. So go back to Leros and talk to Syllaios,
and for 800 Drachmas he can take you to this place. This completes "Into
the Unknown," and you get 34076 experience points.
*Optional Quest* "Temple Menace." You get this quest as soon as you land on
the Island of Hypnos. The Guard asks you to kill 15 evil spirits that have
invaded their rebuilt Temple. The enemies here are level 26. Follow the
path until you reach the cave, there are 4 scorpions right after the cave.
The enemies inside the temple are 45-46. The phantoms can be hard to target
sometimes, but they can be killed. There are some treasure chests in here
if you need gear. If you need to level up use the camp fire to respawn the
enemies. As soon as you kill all 15 and leave a slave will talk to you.
Accepting his plea gets you the "Helping the Slaves," quest. You get 34076
experince for completing this.
*Optional Quest* "Helping the Slaves." You get this quest after kill 15
evil spirits and leave the Temple of Hypnos. After agreeing to help you
must go back into the temple. There was a room with 2 sarcophagi, it is
located in the southwestern room from the enterance. Once yoy walk into the
room you will tall the undead to haunt their temple once more. After this
the enemies will repawn in greater number. Just head back outside the
temple to the slave. Talking to him gets you 36532 experience and
a class specfic yellow weapon.
*Optional Quest* "A Sound that is a Key." You get this quest from Paradigm
after talking to him the first time. He tells you of where the automations
are being made. And warns you that it is a dangerous place. So the goal is
to tell Automation until they drop "Mechanical Horn." And you get 14072
experience points for find this. The quest is removed from the list, but a
new dungeon is opened up. It is directly east of the camp fire. To enter
this dungeon you need to play the Mechanical Horn, not right in front of the
door but a few steps away. That is how you get this door to open.
The enemies in this dungeon are 42-45. This place has a few treasures
but can mainly be used to level up. This can be done in the Giant room just
south of the entrance, north of the camp fire. There are places where the
enemies are plentiful, so just keep killing until you get bad experience.
If you can make it to the back of the large room you will get a very good
item that is class specific so it's worth it to try and level up to kill all
the automations to get to the treasure chest in the back.
*Optional Quest* "The Tournament." You do not have to do this, but you get
God favor for winning. And you lose God favor for not particpating. Iris
will tell you of the tournament. If you chose to go head back to Machatar
and go to Arena island by using the Arena Ferryman, the boatman on the east
side of the main island. Talk to the Arena Master and accept going into the
Tournament. A good idea is to save before so that you can always redo if
you get defeated. So every champion that has been killed during the main
quest will not be in the tournament. The first match starts out a 3 person
free for all, unless you have killed other heroes than you could get less
than that. Depending on what classyou are playing against they may just run
around and grab the potions on the floor. This can make killing them hard
if they only get the health back. But if they lose health and take damage
from it, this becomes much easier. Every so often they will announce a
spell. To counter this spell you need to cast the appropriate spell to
counter it. Fire , Ice, or Wind. Look at the color of the spell being cast
and use that one, Fire cancels fire etc. The computer may or may not cancel
the spell effect. You will only have basic abilities in the arena, usually
the first 2 you learned before turning into that class After you win you
will get a movie and 80 God favor. You can turn this in for a God ability.
*Optional Area* Skyros Island. From what I have seen this island has
nothing to do with the main quest. The enemies here are level 63-64. It
cost 190 Drachmas to get here from Osidios, the boatman. There are 2 areas
of interest here. One on the east side of the island, Kaylith. She wants
the whistle that controls the wolves so that she can become queen of the
Amazons, if you chose to let her live opening the quest "Sisterly Love."
This leads us to the next area of interest. It is in the middle of the
island, the other path away from Osidios. The cave is where the whistle
lies, and the enemies here are 64-67. So what you are looking for is
Anthira, and she is located in the northern most room.
After you kill her you get a note hinting at where she buried the
whistle. Now head to the most eastern room on the map. Dig behind the wall
in the room and you will find the whistle and a note, as well as completing
the quest "Sisterly love." Return to Kaylith and either give her the
whistle, the reward for this is minimal. Or defeat her again and keep the
whistle and more experience points for killing her. The whistle's use is
that it will have Orthrus show you where his master is. If you give it to
her you get the ability to keep breathing, she threatens you but you know
you could take her again if need be.
*Optional Quest* "Fighting the Giant Crab." As of this version all details
have not been completed. During further updates more information will be
*Optional Quest* The Arena. You can come here at any time after you have
become an adult. There are 3 options:
"Eh, I'd rather start slow." You only have to fight one gladiator here
depending on who you fight they may just go around collecting the potions
you get a small amount of XP based upon your level and 5 God favor.
"I feel quite good today," this gives you 2 gladiators, they both
give you small amounts of experience points and 10 God favor.
"Send in the Strongest," this gives you 3 gladiators to fight againist.
You get more experience points, but only 15 God favor. In my opinion
the arena is not worth the trouble unless you are going for all
of the God abilities.
