The optional Expert stances quest & Expert stances:

here also a list of things you'll need to have done to start the quest:

1: Completed the Reboldeux sewers quest.
2: Have a emilia or emilia the sage in your family.

-Get emilia and talk to the patriarch in the mayan city.
-Then talk to Narr, he will say you need to go to oculta fortress to kill Kobold Elders for a chance of a quest drop. (bring lots of sc and try around h8)
-Talk to gertrude with emilia.
-Talk to emilia, and now you can but the expert stances.

Expert stances:

all of the five expert stances will need 6 great stones and a symbol.
great stones are bought in cash shop or bazaar for 100 gold each, and symbols are dropped of raid bosses and new boxes,

Symbols needed per stance:

Symbols dropped by raid bosses:

With 3.0 some raid bosses can drop symbols for those stances, here's a list:


The mayan questline & how to get Narr

Found some new nice parts of info:

about the 2 new mayan (main story line?) quests:

It indicates you need to do some sort of quest before it, tough it doesn't make to much sense to me how it came out after a translation so here's my best guess:
It seems to enter the mayan city your faction leader has to enter some kind of protect mission. and if he/she wins people can enter the city and he/she can only try the quest again in 12 hours if failed.

party's executive server family, is what they called it but i think they mean faction leader of the winning party, or it seems to translate to it at least.

Now on to to solo quests :D

to start first part of the mayan questline you need to have:
1: done emilia's quest (the one where you find her dad's diary)
2: completed bahamar's questline (ten nobles)
3: you need a elemental yewel (jeah mayan chicks dig em!)

To start the quest it seems you need run around in Reboldeux sewers (in queens gate you'll find the entrance to it check local map :p) and look for red spots of magic in the more remote parts of reboldeux sewers.
Step inside those red spots and you should get a quest started [1].
Talk to emilia in port coimbra and she should ask you to collect 10 pieces of a memo.
You should be able to get these 10 pieces of memo by killing the mobs near those red magic spots, or by simply walking into them.

Return to emilia and she will tell you it's part of some old treasure or something, talk to brunie in reboldeux after that to give her that info and she should give you a waterworks key.
now you will go to a fight vs the undertaker!, if you can find him that is, seems you need to kill him for the quest, so you can probally squad with ppl to all do that part at once.
ps. he seems to be a raid boss of sorts :O stats and image here:

Lv: 114
human / soft armor / no attribute / medium
AR: 59
DR: 59
HP: 7960800
ATK: 7356
Def: 234
ele ressistances: 35
Physic res: 61

After that you get to the mayan city and and gaurds welcome you and tell you to go speak to the gaurd captain.
While talking to the gaurd captain he asks you to collect 50 Rhodolite pieces.
Return to the gaurd captain and you'll receive a xp scroll for your trouble :P.
After this they'll ask you to give them a elemental yewel so you'll be allowed to talk to their patriarch.
They'll talk about some stuff and seems a mission occurs again and some mobs attack, the gaurds and the assasin like upc should kill em if you don't.
After that you get to talk to Narr (the barbarian upc) about emilia's father a bit and seems he'll give you emilia's fathers his glasses. Talk to emilia to contininue quest and get xp cards and polish.
Go back to narr and discuss with him about some stuff :O.
After that you'll be asked to go collect 5 ancient runes in a new place in the mayan city, a squad is advised here apparantly this is one tough area :O.
It seems you'll need to go back and you get some kind of mission where npc's save you? (not sure this part is rather badly translated)
You'll get send around by some npc's after that and one of the mayan npc's seems to want to kill the patriarch but his plan doesn't go to well.
Talk to Narr and you'll get his upc card :O

Cabinet pieces & Bellum Ruins

Hello clansmen and clanswomen, here a little guide on how to get bellum keys, and what to get from bellum ruins:

Cabinet pieces:

Cabinet pieces are dropped by the Test mobs in Jaquin prison shivarlier.
These mobs however spawn at certain times only, *see below* and spawn once a player clicked on a overturn box, all mobs of the channel spawn by just 1 click, so no need to click each box.

14:00 & 23:00 GMT
15:00 & 24:00 GMT +1

locations of the test mobs:

The goal is to collect a number of each cabinet piece, so 20 unique numbers are called a set.
you can turn the set in at Elizabeth in auch (grandma like npc next to leo)

The bellum key is random reward you can get estimated at a 5% chance of getting.

Bellum Ruins

Bellum ruins can be accessed from the bellum stone in Fire isle channel 1 free zone when the notices indicate it.
just to make it clear, at a random time from 3 to 4 hour you'll see a bellum notice after the last notice.
Like treasure hunt it tells that it will open in 10 minutes, once opened you have 10mins to enter.

Inside bellums ruins:
You'll get the notice that you'll be kicked out the ruins in 1 hour, this is normal don't worry
Once you get inside you'll see that the map is a copy of underground relics. and at your feet you'll have a locked chest with your name on it and several mobs walking around it.
these mobs slowly spawn roughly each 30 seconds and have a chance to drop mega ores and pure aida/ionium etc.
10 minutes after the bellum ruins openend the bosses will spawn.

A random number of 1-5 bosses will spawn around the chest (best to stand away from it for that reason.)
there are 2 types of bosses that can spawn, area bosses and mini raid bosses.
Under area bosses i mean bosses that are quite easy (usually die with 1 or 2 skills) and can also be encountered as area bosses.
Mini raid bosses are bosses based on raid bosses but with scaled down stats, but much tougher then area bosses.
The bosses lvl are random between lvl 90 and 100
PS. the same boss can spawn twice max in bellum, so no worries of 5 times hardest raid boss.

Bosses and time it takes for my team:

Area bosses:
Phobitian General (<1min)
Sunflower Monkey (<1min)
Phobitian Chieftain (<1min)
Cerebrus (<1min)
Hollowed footman captain (<1min)

Raid Bosses:
Goldhorn gagoyle (3mins)
Dr Fran Mothstein (7mins)
Gerrero (10 mins)
Elgum (15mins)
King of Coverty (15 mins)

King of coverty is the only boss that can ruin bellums ruin imo, since he uses a buff that adds defense and attack when his hp is below 30% roughly.

Family's chest:
Anyway after you beat the bosses you get to open the chest with your name on it, you have 90 seconds to run to it so hurry!
once you open it a random 84 elite or a lvl 84 pendant/controller/construction hammer drops out.

Big box:
after that the Big box spawns, this chest has hp and you need to kill it withing 90 seconds to get loot.
it's a hard armor chest but if you use 92 elites and at least 2 decent dps'ers it should be easy.
this chest drops a 84 elite, a lvl 88 +1dr or +1ar pendant/controller/construction hammer or a lvl 100 weapon or shield of 30 ar series.

Teams & setup:

For bellums i'd suggest teams with at least 2 chars with 30 ar weapons or higher, a dr if 55 can still be enough but 59 is perfect.
you'll practially only need this for the raid bosses but they usually spawn.

I'd suggest having at least 1 tanker/dps hybrid (fight with polearm can tank and dps well enough :D) or a scout/romina.
Try to bring triumph fillers and AM boosts with you in case you need it to kill a KOC.

PS i''m using a 59 ar/dr Idge expert + 57 ar/ 55dr musk vet + 57dr exp scout team for this. and only need AM boost + triumph fillers to take lvl 98+ kings of coverty out.

and good luck to you ppl, maybe i'll share trick to getting keys later .

(Jaq prison FA warp scroll hasn't been cofirmed yet, but all other warp scrolls seem to drop tough)

C) Play Scisors, Paper, Stone:

Basically you do a game of chance with a random upc.
if you win you get to open 3 boxes that day, you can choose if you want item of the dayl or mysterious.

if you draw you are allowed to pick option A) or B) instead.

If you loose you don't get any boxes but get 1 soul crystal for compensation alledgedly.

i wouldn't recommend this unless you're lucky, it seems to have a high fail ratio. (some ppl lost 5 days in a row)

D) Choose later

as name implies :D


Best option is to open try mysterious option and see what you get, and hope you're lucky that day :D
the chance of getting what you want is always low... keep this in mind, you will be dissapointed alot of times

Progressive Mithridart
