Welcome to the guide on the Unfelled questline! The main Hero of Aethric story questline is the same as Orna, however this guide has adjusted the strategies to cater specifically for Aethric. Finding lower tier monsters and bosses can be a pain, so here’s a neat little guide to help! Most quests will be split into two sections - new and experienced. If you’re a new player, look at the new section. If you’re returning or have ignored the story quest until later, and are something like Tier 9 or Tier 10, look at the experienced section for more options to complete each quest. Use the outline of this document to jump between quests quickly.
Also note, all of these will be spoilers for the questline. Read these line-by-line if you’d like to avoid being spoiled, or, I dunno, don’t read this.
Note from Shabbash: Huge thank you to Konq for writing up this legendary questing guide and also for permission to upload to this site. I have also adjusted this for Aethric where possible. Video walkthroughs for each tier in Aethric at the bottom of this guide.
A nice new tip for Aethric - if you're wondering where to receive the next quest from check your world map, NPCs with a quest for you will show up!
For those interested in recommending additions or changes to this document, please DM Konq#6970 on discord or for Aethric specifically please DM Shabbash#8888. Do keep in mind the priority of this document is to provide the quickest or easiest method of completing these quests, and providing the entire list of ways to complete the quests would make this document longer than I’d like it to be.
Tier 1 Quests
Quest 1: Samson in Loton - The Unfelled: Defeat Rat (5)
New: This quest is fairly simple in early-game. In your constant battle with world monsters, make sure 5 of them are Rats. They spawn around Loton. Monsters respawn randomly here as tier 1 so kill different monsters until enough rats are spawned and killed.
Quest 2: Samson in Loton - Origin Town: Build a Shop in your Origin Town
New: Follow the path West of Loton back to where you started the game and enter your Origin Town. Tap on Gofannon, the NPC walking around inside and build a shop by tapping on the map building screen to place.
Quest 3: Samson in Loton - Too Many Goblins: Defeat Goblin Mage (5) and Goblin (5)
New: Another relatively simple one. Slay 5 Goblin Mages and 5 Goblins. They start spawning North of Loton. You might have killed enough monsters to reach Level 25 and go up to Tier 2, which will let you see Tier 2 monsters (2 stars), so you might have to kill more monsters that aren’t them before you get them.
Experienced: Once again, we’re limited by the size of our mob pool. This time, you’ll wanna run Goblin Fortresses in the Fen Halls. Again, you should only need a couple runs to secure the quest.
Quest 4: Samson in Loton - The Lord of Goblins: Defeat a Goblin Lord
New: Your first boss quest! Bosses are larger than monsters, and you might have spotted some around. The way boss spawning works in Aethric is that each zone has a set number of bosses that can be spawned at once, and those bosses will be the same tier as the zone.
There are two Tier 1 zones each North and South of Loton, each having 1 possible boss spawn. How to find a Goblin Lord? Keep killing the bosses here around Loton until a Goblin Lord spawns. The bosses here can either be Bandit Lord, Minotaur or Goblin Lord.
Experienced: If you left your Goblin Fortress run the moment you finished your quest, you might have some floors left to encounter a Goblin Lord. Otherwise, another run should do the trick for you. Optionally, run the zone south of Loton killing bosses until a Goblin Lord shows up. That’ll get you the boss, guaranteed.
Quest 5: Samson in Loton - The Second Tier: Become Stronger
New: Congrats! You’ve finished all the tier 1 quests. To unlock the next tier’s quests, level up to Level 25.
Experienced: Congrats! Hit the complete button, you’re just getting started.
Tier 2 Quests
Quest 6: Asmund in Svarga - The Draconians: Defeat Draconian (5) and Draconian Mage (5)
New: Another fairly simple quest. Welcome to tier 2! Visit the town of Svarga by continuing South along the path from Loton. If you explored the map over to the Fen Halls you should’ve seen some new monsters by now. Go around and kill some of them for me, would you? Draconians spawn in the Tier 2 zones from the Mushroom North of of Loton, all the way to the Fen Halls. Oh, if you find a Draconian Lord, it’s probably best to leave it be. You’ll need it for a later quest.
Experienced: This quest has Draconians, which means it’s best to visit Valhallan Cradle to tackle the Dragon Roost. If you’re into the alt scene, doing a horde normal gauntlet with a Tier 3 will get a decent amount of Draconians as well.
Quest 7: Asmund in Svarga - The Arena: Defeat Arena opponents (5)
New: This one is fairly self explanatory, except you have to find somewhere to PvP! Go to the North side of the Fen Lagoon and you will find a building that looks like a coliseum called the Fallen Champion's Clearing. Walk close and enter it. There, in Sparring, defeat 5 players. You’ll need Arena Tokens to get in, but you should be able to get them in shops or from nearby bosses.
Experienced: Just kill 5 arena opponents, the same as New players but with less fancy jargon.
Quest 8: Asmund in Svarga - The Bestiary: Build a Bestiary and get a follower
New: It’s time to build your first bestiary and get a follower! Building cost for your first bestiary is:
Find a Bestiary in Svarga or in Vinland and buy a follower. Any follower will do although I recommend a Snake for its high action rate and ability to poison enemies, and they cost just a handful of gold. Now you’ll have a friend! You can name it in a bestiary as well.
Experienced: I’d hope you have built a bestiary and got a follower by now, this should just be an autocomplete.
Quest 9: Asmund in Svarga - The Codex: Complete Codex entries (3)
New: Time to learn about the Codex! The Codex is a log of all the enemies you’ve fought, and is accessed in the main menu, as the bottom left button. Your job is to complete 3 entries, and to do this, you’ll need to witness all the characteristics of the monster in battle in order to record it. This includes drops, moves, whether it’s weak to something, resistant to something, and so on. You can see what you’re missing by noting the little ??? on a given entry. A completed entry has a yellow name. Chances are you’ve gotten one or two by accident. Go and fill out 3 of them in total.
Experienced: If you need words to detail what this quest does, see the New section.
Check out master codexer Konq's video below for more detail on codexing, which can be important in the future for some event questlines such as the Draconian Era:
Quest 10: Asmund in Svarga - The Dungeon - Complete a Dungeon
New: Gauntlets are essentially a marathon of monsters, one after another, with no healing in between. You can find them as buildings in the world, where there's at least one in each zone. The first available dungeon is the Mushroom of Perilous Visitation, a normal dungeon just South of Vinland. Also Goblin Fortress in the Fen Halls. Run through one of these - you'll just have been handed a Gauntlet Key. You can get more Keys from killing the red Demon Knight boss in Lythryn Woods at tier 3, so don't worry if you fail your first dungeon, check the video below on where to farm more keys in the early game.
Experienced: Tired of running gauntlets for the fallen monsters? Run one more for good measure.
Quest 11: Asmund in Svarga - The Draconian Lord: Defeat a Draconian Lord
New: Another boss hunt! Same as before, look around the Tier 2 zones between the Great Plains and Fen Halls. Keep killing bosses until a Draconian Lord spawns. If you left one before, go back and kill it!
Experienced: Similar to the Draconian quest, a Dragon Roost can work, but a Tier 2 or Tier 3 boss dungeon should almost definitely net you the Draconian Lord.
Quest 12: Asmund in Svarga - The Third Tier: Become Stronger
New: You’ve completed all the tier 2 quests! Time to level up to level 50. Also, you’ll need to unlock a Tier 2 class. In the Change Class tab, scroll to the right until you find a tier 2 class. Chances are, you’ll want to settle with the upgraded version of your class (Archmage, Rogue, Paladin, don’t pick Knight).
Experienced: Hit continue, 2 down, 8 to go.
Quest 13: Galar of Myrkheim in Vinland - A Fine Blacksmith Indeed: Upgrade equipment (3) and Build a Blacksmith
New: This quest requires that you build a blacksmith in your Origin Town by speaking to Gofannon there. You’ll need some resources (25 wood, 25 stone, and 250,000 gold). You can get the wood from dismantling items (press and hold an item in your inventory, and hit dismantle - this destroys the item and gives you some materials) or finding wood and tree items on the ground, the stone from nearby shops or stones on the ground, and the gold you can get from winning battles in the arena. Once you have your blacksmith, upgrade 3 items inside of it - I suggest upgrading 3 Level 1 items at the same time, which will reduce the time you need to spend waiting. You can also visit the Blacksmith in Svarga to begin upgrading equipment if you need time to farm for more stone.
Experienced: Insert sarcastic description here telling you to upgrade 3 items.
NOTE! Using whetstones and fine whetstones will not increase the count for upgrading items. If you have the original side quest from the beginning still, any upgrades will count for both quests.
Quest 14: Seeker Mara in Resting Place - Remember The Fallen: Kill Fallen (Archmage, Witch, and Knight)
New: Find Mara in The Resting Place, just NE from Loton around the corner. This quest is seen as very difficult, due to the rarity of these monsters. You should be able to find the Archmage, Witch, and Knight with enough world farming. These mobs start spawning in the world from Lythryn Woods, so if you are only tier 3 you will have to keep killing monsters in Lythryn until they spawn. You could also reset the zone to force monsters spawn refresh, check the video below to see how. If you're higher tier you can start there and walk to Suddun to try and find them.
Experienced: Run tier 3 normal gauntlets until you’re out of nearby dungeons, and then run some more or run with tier 3 alt party dungeons. This is the best way to get these monsters. Unless you want to world farm for them like a fool. If you’re only missing the Archmage, they show up in Mystic Caves, that is the Shaded Cave in NE Lythryn Woods or the Great Desert Tomb next to East Suddun Waygate.
Quest 15: Seeker Mara - Deep in Dungeons: Complete a Dungeon
New: Mara asks us to complete another dungeon, we should have a key available from Galar's blacksmith quest but if you don't you can kill the red Demon Knight boss in Lythryn Woods who can drop keys. Can refer back to quest #10 for where to visit.
Experienced: Complete any dungeon you wish.
Quest 16: Seeker Mara - Become stronger
New: Congratulations! That’s all there is for Tier 3 quests. Similar to the last quest of tier 2, you’ll need level 75, and a Tier 3 class but also now need to select a specialisation (basically a sub-class). Your first spec choice in the game is free so you can either choose to select one of the three tier 3 choices (not great in grand scheme of things) or wait until lvl 100 and selecting a nice tier 5 spec such as berserker. If you're already lvl 100 or close to it, definitely pick a tier 5 spec, otherwise there's nothing wrong with selecting a tier 3 spec to progress the main quest line, as more ways of gaining orns will be open to us very soon, the tier 5 specs cost 25,000 orns.
Experienced: Press that continue button and get a move on, there’s Fomorians to kill.
Tier 4 Quests
Quest 17: Samson in Loton - The Trading Post: Build a Trading Post
New: Head to your Origin Town to speak with Gofannon to build this, once picking up the required materials and gold as such: 500,000 gold, 15 wood, 15 stone, 5 runestone.
Arena is a good place to farm gold quickly, you should know how to find wood and stone by now. The best place to farm runestone is by killing Living Armour mobs in tier 2 zones such as the Fen Halls and dismantling all their gear. They are the blue armoured knight type mobs.
Experienced: You should already have built one by now to pique your curiosity surely?
Sidequest: Galar of Myrkheim in Vinland - Smelt 5 Items
New: This quest is a sidequest, so you can still progress with the rest of the questline without completing it. If you’ve built the blacksmith from the Tier 3 quest, then you can just smelt 5 more items in it. Similar to that quest, if you want this to be completed quickly, upgrade 5 Level 1 items.
Experienced: You unlock this sidequest by being Tier 4 or higher, and you can just smelt 5 items in your own blacksmith. Pick 5 Level 1 items with easy to get materials so you don’t waste much, and you can crank this quest out in 1 hour. There is a main quest in Tier 3 that requires smelting 3 items, so I’d recommend saving this for then, and killing two Turuls with one stone.
NOTE! Using whetstones and fine whetstones will not increase the count for items smelted.
Sidequest: Pythia of Elysium in Athantia - Of Sights and Memories: Complete a Memory Hunt
New: This quest unlocks after completing Galar's sidequest above. Find Pythia in Athantia where she'll give you a Diluted Mnemonic to complete a memory hunt and receive an Amity. You'll definitely want to do this as soon as possible as it unlocks the ability to build an Oracle Temple in your Origin Town, which guarantees a successful Concurrence to receive a Diluted Mnemonic every day (once you level it up to 10). If you'd like more information about Amities and Memory Hunts check out the written guide coming soon here and the video below.
Quest 18: Catha in Athantia - Attack of the Fomorians!: Defeat Fomorians - Warrior (20), Rogue (20), Mage (10)
New: You’ll find these all over the world, just like before from Tier 4 zones onwards that is anywhere after crossing the Great Athantia Bridge, East of Lythryn! This might take a little bit more grinding, though. Take out any you see, since this quest can be in your quests tab for quite a while. Using the zone reset trick as posted above can help speed up the monster spawns. You may also consider wearing Enchanted Skull accessories from Undead Golems, popping a Torch and Occult Candle to increase monster spawns. Walking from Athantia to Woven Forest, resetting party, and walking back > rinse & repeat is a good strategy as they don't appear to spawn in Suddun Desert.
Experienced: The first of many quests that benefits highly from running Underworld Portal themed dungeons. These will be your best option for getting Fomorians efficiently. Alternatively, Tier 4 and/or Tier 5 horde normal dungeons can provide a small boost, but they’re quite ineffective.
Quest 19: Catha in Athantia - The Formorian Lord: Defeat a Fomorian Lord
New: This boss is slightly different from the other bosses so far - you most likely haven’t seen this boss before this quest. You now can see Fomorian Lords in the world in Tier 4 zones, such as Great Athantia East or the Woven Forest are good small areas to farm. Kill every boss you can in Tier 4 zones to get one to spawn. These can also be found at the end of Tier 4 gauntlets, but rarely.
Experienced: I suggest reading the New section of this, because a large majority of the information pertains to your situation too. However, you also have the last floor of Underworld Portals to generate Fomorian Lords. I believe the most efficient method of finding one is to simply farm bosses in Great Athantia East until a Fomorian Lord spawns..
NOTE: Quest bosses like these can only be found on the last floor of dungeons. As such, it’s not necessary to use extra keys to run a boss dungeon.
Quest 20: Samson in Loton - The Fifth Tier: Become Stronger
New: Congrats! Another tier down! Hit level 100 and purchase a tier 4 class. Memory Hunts are a great way to easily earn over 100,000 orns fast at this stage if you don't have enough to unlock your next class.
Experienced: Congrats! That’s one tough boss to track down. Keep it up!
Tier 5 Quests
Quest 21: Ceres in Suddun - Fallen Hero Part 1: Acquire Fogstone (5), Mirror (1), Undead Bone (3)
New: Welcome to the new tier! Here, you’ll have a few quests that fetch various items. Fogstone is dropped by Lesser Sluaghs and Sluaghs (Tier 5 boss), and can be gotten by dismantling a Fog Blade (also dropped from Sluaghs). Undead Bone can be gotten from killing Undead Golems (Tier 4 boss) and Draugrs (Tier 3 boss, found in dungeons). Lastly, the Mirror can be gotten as a drop from the Arena. If you have auto-dismantle turned on, turn it off for Standard quality. Keep fighting in the arena until you get one, it might take a while.
Experienced: Chances are you have the materials, you just need the mirror. Fortunately, 3.1 added lower tiers to the arena drop pool for higher tiers, which not only allows you to get this Mirror significantly easier, but it also allows you to farm Berserk Mushrooms at a higher rate. Just be sure to turn off your auto-dismantle for these.
Quest 22: Ceres in Suddun - Fallen Hero Part 2: Acquire Broken Statue (5), Green Crystal (2), Nightshade (3), Silver (1)
New: Time for the next fetch quest! Broken Statues can be gotten from the two Gargoyle bosses of tier 4, Gargouille (dungeon only) and Carmen’s Gargoyle. Green Crystals are accessories dropped by Gazers, but they’re also purchasable in shops. Nightshade at Tier 5 can be gotten from shops, but if you manage to find a Carmen in the world (Tier 6 boss), she drops Nightshade as well. Silver is a very common material, and you should already have some by now. If not, dismantle some Fomorian gear.
Experienced: The hardest thing on this list is probably the Green Crystals. You can refresh shops to get them, check your Junk pile if you have them, or even try fighting some things that have the Mimic drop pool, which has Green Crystals.* Everything else should be materials you have lying around.
*Maybe. Probably. Don’t count on it, but if I’m right, you heard it here first.
Quest 23: Catha in Athantia - Ambush!: Defeat Balor Guardian (5), Reaper (3), Balor Worm (1)
New: Both Balor Guardians and Reapers show up at night (between XX:25 and XX:45 minutes past every hour) so you’ll want to grind monsters in the world then. The best place to farm is in Meropis, south of Suddun. Use as many monster spawning boosters as you have available and do the party reset trick to refresh the mobs and you should smash this out in no time. As for the Balor Worm, they are exclusive to dungeons so normal boss dungeons are the best bet.
Experienced: For the higher tiered player, we have Underworld Portal Balor we can rely on at Tier 9. This will make it incredibly easy to get the Reapers and the Balor Worm, but the Guardians will still be a decent grind. Consider getting some mates and running through a few of these.
Quest 24: Ceres in Suddun - A Fallen Hero Part 3: Acquire Bone (50), Wolf’s Blood (25)
New: While grinding the world for those Balor Guardians and Reapers, you may have killed a few Odoks. These are a prime source of bones, and Fomorian gear can also give bones when dismantled. As for Wolf’s Blood, your only source is going to be Lord of Wolves, a tier 3 boss commonl found in Lythryn Woods. If you happen to be playing during the Rise of Kerberos event, you can encounter Followers of Kerberos in Beast Dens (a themed dungeon), and those drop plenty of Wolf’s Blood.
Experienced: This quest should be on the easier end - not many things need Wolf’s Blood, and Bones are plentiful, so you should already have these materials. If not, see New.
Quest 25: Ceres in Suddun - A Fallen Hero Part 4: Acquire Darkstone (50)
New: This should actually be a quick one. The Balor Guardians you defeated for a previous quest drop Darkstone, and their Balor Swords can be dismantled into it as well. On top of this, most “dark” things drop them - Ghosts, Demons, Dark Slimes, and Yokai, to name a few.
Experienced: Hopefully you have 50 Darkstone by now, running those Underworld Portals should be a great source of it.
Quest 26: Ceres in Suddun - A Fallen Hero Finale: Defeat the Fallen Hero, Lover Lost
New: Welcome to the next story boss! After completing the previous quest, you were given the Lover’s Lost accessory. To easily encounter the boss, you must have this equipped when traveling the world and kill bosses in Tier 5 zones that is Suddun Dunes or Meropis until he spawns. Just like with Fomorian Lords, he can be found at the last floor of a Tier 5, 6, or 7 gauntlet, but Tier 5 gauntlets are preferred.
Experienced: Just like with the new player, you’ll want to equip the Lover’s Lost accessory you got from the previous quest. Wear it while smashing bosses in Tier 5 zones either Suddun Dunes or Meropis.
Quest 27: Mara in Resting Place - The Sixth Tier: Become stronger
New: Congrats! Unlock yourself a Tier 5 class and hit level 125.
Experienced: Congrats on finding yourself another difficult boss. There are more struggles ahead, but the next tier should be relatively easy.
Tier 6 Quests
Quest 28: Gol in Jotunheim - The Center of Town: Build a Town Hall and Residence (5)
Northern Forge have reduced/removed requirements for this quest and residence construction cost! - 20th Jan 2023 🥳
New: The quests in this tier focus most on expanding your origin town. A Town Hall is used to gather quests from your townsfolk, who live in Residences. Build 5 of them and use this opportunity to learn how Town Halls work. The Town Hall costs 2.5 million gold, so do sell some accessories or gear you aren’t using if you are short on gold, or do a few arena kills. Each residence gets more expensive the more you build, and the max amount to have an effect is 20. You’ll need some wood and stone for these, and if you’re low, consult your shops and back to grinding clickables - however at tier 6 we get access to a really strong farming zone called Winter Path. It is East of mountains of Jotunheim Waygate and it's supper strong for boss and clickable farming because it's a small zone and you can only go West-East.
Quest 29: Gol in Jotunheim - The Jeweller and the Herbalist: Build a Jeweler and a Herbalist
New: Time to build interesting shops! A jeweller can sell adornments, which are small gems that can be put on weapons and armor to give them a small stat boost. A herbalist allows you to craft your own potions! You’ll be able to make potions like Elixirs by putting together resources. More often than not, you’ll need empty bottles, which you should have gotten on your journey. Farm runestone in Fen Halls by killing Living Armour (blue coloured knight type mobs) and dismantling all their gear! Hide can be farmed by killing crows and bandits in Loton Woods.
Quest 30: Gol in Jotunheim - The Citadel: Build a Citadel and Residence (10)
New: A Citadel is a place where your townsfolk can give you gifts! The higher their morale is (see the Town Hall), the more often they’ll give you gifts. You’ll also want to build more residences - do note that this quest only needs you to build 5 additional residences, for a total of 10.
You may want to forget this quest for a while as it takes 2-3 hours of dedicated stone farming to accumulate 425 stone at this tier... Northern Forge have stated they might lower the price of these buildings in the future (15th Jan 2023)
Quest 31: Gol in Jotunheim - Town Morale: Have Town Morale at 20%
New: Time to raise your town’s morale! In order to do this, you’ll need to complete the various quests found in the town hall. Each quest should increase the town’s morale by a couple percentage points, and once you’re at 20%, you’ve completed the quest. Do know that the morale goes down over time, so to keep your townsfolk happy, you’ll need to keep doing quests occasionally.
Experienced: You should already have this, hit continue.
Quest 32: Mara in Resting Place - The Seventh Tier: Become stronger
New: This concludes the Origin Town section of quests! Feel free to get yourself a Tier 6 class and level up to 150.
Experienced: You should already have this, hit continue.
Tier 7 Quests
Quest 33: Samson in Loton - Defeat Arisen: Minotaur, Cerberus, Lord of Wolves, Lost Pharaoh
New: Arisen monsters are stronger forms of monsters you’ve fought before. More often than not, these are bosses that are now encounterable as enemies. Arisen enemies have a bright pink glow around them. Do note that these are different from Berserk monsters - a Berserk monster is a stronger form of a normal monster, Arisen monsters can be considered entirely different monsters. Most of these can be found in the Myrkheim Mines Tier 7 Zone. Arisen Cerberus can only be found at night, and the Arisen Lord of Wolves can only be found in wooded areas like Valhalla's Cradle. For this reason, it’s recommended to run dungeons, which ignore all time and location-based requirements. Specifically, a Beast Den themed dungeon has Arisen Minotaur, Arisen Cerberus and Arisen Lord of Wolves, you’d just need to find a Lost Pharaoh.
Experienced: If you’re really insane, you can do a Valley of the Gods. However, if you find an Arisen Lost Pharaoh, you can just run a Beast Den or two, and you should get this quest quickly.
Quest 34: Samson in Loton - Unlock a Tier 7 class
New: You’re at the point in the game where your orn income is starting to pick up! Before going on, get yourself a Tier 7 class. The best methods of orn farming at this point in the game come from killing bosses in the world, or from constant dungeon runs. A Tier 7 boss dungeon will almost give you as many keys as it takes to enter. There are also pieces of gear that boost drops of gold, orns, and XP. Consider the Deathbringer and Reaper's Robe, dropped from Ankou, to boost orns. Mimic King Head drops from Mimic King in Tier 4 zones with forest biome like Woven Forest, also gives boost to orns.
Experienced: You should already have this, hit continue.
Sidequest: Samson in Loton - Defeat Arisen: Minotaur (25), Cerberus (25), Lord of Wolves (25), Lost Pharaoh (25), Orc Lord (25), Camazotz (25)
New: This sidequest is very tedious. It’s advised you don’t focus on this much, as it’s not necessary to complete the story. However, to find most of these, you’ll see benefits in running a Beast Den. Orc Lords can be found in Goblin Fortresses, and Lost Pharaohs, well, they’re just kinda out there.
Experienced: Run a Valley of the Gods for this, if you’re so inclined to do this quest. Should come naturally if you regularly do Valley runs. Obviously, this assumes you’re Tier 10.
Quest 35: Emile in Nothren - Complete Codex for Enlightened - Guardian, Mage, Acolyte
New: The Enlightened need to be studied! The best place to find them in Aethric is in Dungeons, where they can spawn in normal dungeons, and the Chaos Portal in Myrkheim. The mage and Acolyte also spawn in Mystic Cave themed dungeons at the Shaded Cave in Lythryn or Great Desert Tomb next to the waygate in East Suddun Desert. These are very simple to codex - simply get all the moves they can use, and for the Mage and Guardian, get their drop. You may want to consider sending your follower home until you complete the codex entries if they keep killing the mobs.
Experienced: If you need these codex entries, see the New tab.
Quest 36: Emile in Nothren - Acquire a Crystalis
New: A Crystalis is actually a very useful weapon! For melee users, it’s a great source of debuff protection - it prevents many stat debuffs, which allow you to use things like buff skills from the Druid class with minimal drawbacks. They’re obtained by defeating an Enlightened Prince, who can also be found in dungeons. Chances are you might’ve found one by now.
Experienced: Just like the new, run a Tier 7 boss gauntlet to quickly encounter an Enlightened Prince, and get its Crystalis. Remember to turn auto dismantle off.
Quest 37: Emile in Nothren - Acquire Rosa’s Brooch and Verrick’s Ring
New: After finding the Crystalis, you canonically piss off the king and queen of the Enlightened. Your job is to defeat them, and get their accessories. Just like the other quest bosses, the easiest place to find them is by killing bosses in the relevant tier zone, which in this case is the Myrkheim Mines, or at the last floor of Tier 7, 8, or 9 dungeons. Make sure you keep a hold of them! We need a standard quality brooch and ring.
Experienced: Farm bosses in the Myrkheim Mines. Remember to have auto drop off, as you need a standard quality of both accessories.
Quest 38: Emile in Nothren - Become stronger
New: Congrats for finding those two bosses! Use the scroll you got from the past quest to learn some skills that will help you defeat Arisen enemies. Then, when you’re ready, get to level 175.
Experienced: Use that scroll you got from that quest, and head on to the next batch of quests. We’re getting there, I promise.
Tier 8 Quests
Quest 39: Mara in Resting Place - Acquire Lightstone (12)
New: Welcome to Tier 8! Here, the common enemies are the battling clans of the Ljosalfar and Dokkalfar. While the Ljosalfar have dominated the overworld area of Lyonesse, Dokkalfar can exclusively be found in dungeons and in moonlight (weather, not the time of day). Defeating any of these will give armor and weapons that dismantle into Lightstone. Simply killing a few will get you enough Lightstone to complete the quest.
Experienced: Another easy continue! I hope you have this, otherwise, go and fight some Ljosalfar in Lyonesse.
Quest 40: Damra in Lyonesse - Acquire Orichalcum (3), Witchstone (3), Lightstone (20), Pure Lightstone (1)
New: Damra of the Dokkalfar wants you to gather some more materials! Orichalcum can be gotten from the two Orichalcum enemies, being the Golem and the Knight, which spawn in Lyonesse. As for Witchstone, it’s dropped by Carman and her dungeon equivalent, Carman of the Underworld. These are bosses you encountered in Tier 6, so you might have enough of the material, especially if you farmed bosses in Jotunheim for a while. Lightstone, as we learned in the last quest, is dropped from Ljosalfar and Dokkalfar monsters, mainly in Lyonesse. Pure Lightstone, however, drops from the lords of Ljosalfar and Dokkalfar - Tier 8 bosses you might be able to find in the world in Lyonesse or dungeons, respectively. You should only need to kill one.
Experienced: These are all materials you should have! If you’re missing one or more, see where to find them in the last quest. Witchstone is also dropped from Arisen Carman, if you can find them easier than the boss.
Quest 41: Damra in Lyonesse - Defeat Great Reaper (3)
New: Just like finding the Reapers in Tier 5, this one might be particularly difficult to find - Great Reapers show up at night in Lyonesse or higher zones, but rarely, so world farming might only be a decent method - by Tier 8, you should be able to do dungeons regularly, and Tier 8 normal dungeons will do you best for this quest, as they have a much higher chance of appearing for you there.
Experienced: Just like finding the Reapers in Tier 5, you’ll wanna consult your bestest friend in the world, Underworld Portal in Balor. Running one or two (horde mode) should be enough to finish the quest.
Quest 42: Damra in Lyonesse - Have Town Morale at 60%, Complete 10 NPC Quests
New: Lastly, Damra wants you to do the best that you can. Do some more Town Hall quests and get your Morale up to 60%. As for “10 NPC quests”, this refers to the NPCs that show up in the world and have no connection to the main storyline. Complete 10 of their quests (multiple from the same NPC are counted separately)
Experienced: Hopefully your Morale is at 60%, and you’ve at least done some NPC quests. If you’re lacking on either, consult the New area.
Quest 43: Mara in Resting Place - Become stronger
New: Congrats! Use the Steward Candle you got from that quest, it will make a Steward pet that should either appear in your bestiary or on your person. After that, it’s time to get ready for Tier 9! Level up to 200 and get a Tier 8 class.
Experienced: Congrats! It’s time for the big guns. Use that Steward Candle and find some people to run dungeon parties with.
Tier 9 Quests
In these quests, both sections will be about the same tier. As such, there’s now only one section, as most tips apply to both as is.
Quest 44: Mara in Resting Place - Defeat Balor - Marauder (50), Warlock (50), Assassin (50)
Welcome to your first extremely long quest of Tier 9! Once you hit Tier 9, you’ve gained the ability to visit the Balor zone and the one Underworld Portal themed dungeon located in the South of the region - which house plenty of Balor monsters. This will be your best bet for getting these easily. Another option is farming in the world during the day in the Depths of Balor area, especially with the party reset trick linked above earlier. Use an Affinity Candle, Seeker Candle, and an Occult Candle to increase the spawn of Balor mobs, you ma also be able to brew Beast Blood in Herbalist for even more spawns. At night, Assassins won’t show up, so it’s important to farm during the day. Though, at this point, you should get yourself accustomed to party play with the community - a full party of four can run four Underworld Portals together in Balor, which would smash out the majority of this quest. In other cases, fighting Balor Assassins and Skolls as a party in the world (attack the same monster) can also give some extra Assassins. The easiest place to find these parties is on the Discord, and if you aren't there, then I dunno how you got a hold of this.
Quest 45: Galar of Myrkheim in Vinland - Masterforge Gear
Masterforging your gear can be done at the Alchemist in Lythryn Town. Keep in mind the heftiest part of the cost is in materials, which increases the better quality it is. If you’re looking for a cheap masterforge, use Broken, Poor or Standard gear. You need to Masterforge while the quest is active to complete the quest - previously Masterforged items will not count towards completing this quest!
Mimic King Head is a very good option for this to increase orn gains!
Quest 46: Mara in Resting Place - Defeat Balor King (25)
Welcome to your second extremely long quest of Tier 9! For this quest, Balor Kings are bosses, so running party Tier 9 boss gauntlets is your best bet, as they show up frequently. Resetting bosses in Balor is also a very good way to complete this quest relatively fast, especially when all your dungeons are on cooldown. Check the party resetting trick video above. It’s also not a bad idea to consult Underworld Portals again, but dungeons in general are typically going to be the quickest way of getting these.
Quest 47: Mara in Resting Place - The Giant Long Fetch Quest Of Insanity
Welcome to your third extremely long quest of Tier 9! There’s loads to get. So much in fact, that I’ll be breaking this apart into a bulleted list. If you’d like to see the entire list, here’s a picture. It might help to have this open while reading the following list.
The best way to group these up would most likely be:
Quest 48: Mara in Resting Place - Defeat the Balor Knight, Sirus
Finally, something less grindy! Another story boss. This one can be found by boss farming in Balor, at the end of Underworld Portals or at the end of Tier 9 dungeons. Remember, they can only be found at the last floor, so running boss or normal doesn’t affect the outcome. You can choose to conserve your keys or dual purpose this with a boss run. Sirus is immune to all elements except Arcane!
Quest 49: Mara in Resting Place - Defeat Fallen Gods (Demeter, Vulcan, Thor, Ithra)
As each god fell, each uttered the name of Mammon. Time to put them out of their misery! Boss farming in Balor and running Tier 9 boss gauntlets should be the fastest way of getting these, and should only take a couple runs. Remember that each is immune to their faction element. The reward is the Band of Gods, an amazing accessory that increases your EXP, Orn, and Gold rates by 50%.
Once the quest is finished, any completed gauntlet has a chance to drop another Band of Gods, though it’s very uncommon. Running Hard dungeons guarantees that it will have a quality (improving its boost rates), at the cost of extra keys.
Quest 50: Samson in Loton - Defeat Mammon
Time to finish off who started the falling! Find Mammon and give him a good ol’ beatdown. Those who enjoy boss farming should consider more boss farming in Balor. However, Mammon can now appear at the end of Tier 9 gauntlets, much like every other quest boss. The same is true for him - only at the last floor, so being boss or normal doesn’t affect it.
Quest 51: Samson - Become stronger
Congrats! You completed arguably the hardest tier of story quests. Only a couple left until the end of the storyline. At this point, it’s time to level up to 225, and purchase a Tier 9 class.
Consider raiding for a good portion of your experience, or farming bosses in the world. At this point, getting EXP becomes harder than maintaining your income of orns. World Boss farming the East Lyonesse strip is probably still faster than farming Tier 9 bosses in Balor. Remember to equip some Cursed Monster Tomes farmed from Fafnir in Lyonesse for extra EXP!
Tier 10 Quests
Quest 52 - Galar of Myrkheim in Vinland - Demonforge Gear
Welcome to Tier 10! Demonforging gear is even more expensive than masterforging, but the idea is the same - locate the Demonforge in the town of Balor. Just like masterforging, if you’re looking for a cheaper option, consider demonforging a low-quality masterforged item. Maybe it’s the item you masterforged in the earlier quest? Mimic King Head is again a very good option for this to increase orn gains!
Quest 53 - Defeat the Arisen Queen, Medea
It’s time to finish the journey of the Unfelled. Medea, the Arisen Queen can be found at the end of Mystic Cave dungeons. There are two Mystic Cave dungeons in Aethric: the Shaded Cave in NE Lythryn Woods, and the Great Desert Tomb next to the Suddun waygate just South of Avalon. Do keep in mind, her health bar is the largest of any mob or boss, coming in at around 300,000 (higher than the lowest HP raid boss!) It’s a good idea to use a Questing License before killing Medea, as the quest reward of 5 million orns will be increased by 50% (leading to a bonus of 2.5 million orns for just using an item)! Once defeated, you get the Unfelled Concord - an accessory that decreases the cooldown of dungeons by about 50% when worn in the world build.
Congratulations! You’ve successfully completed the Unfelled Storyline. Any of the rewards from the story quests can be rewards for completing a dungeon, So if you want duplicates of something, run lots more dungeons! You never really stop dungeon-ing.

Huge props to the team over at Northern Forge for creating a wonderfully made storyline. The lore of Orna isn’t all-too-invasive, and it’s beautiful how open-form the game is.
