Unique Quests

Kacha’s Kidnapping

Client Rewards Affinity
Bokoko 3500G, 410 EXP, Jungle Cap, Jungle Gloves, Jungle Shoes None

Upon entering Satorl Marsh, you’ll come across the Nopon Merchant Camp landmark, where you will find Bokoko and other non-unique Merchant NPCs. He will ask you to find the scholar, Kacha, who was carried off by Ignas. Head to Exile Fortress to save Kacha. There are two ways you can save Kacha.

  • If you like a good fight and you’re a high enough level (around level 30), then consider taking the main entrance into the fortress. There will be several igna enemies and a Unique Monster called Reckless Godwin who will all be ready to fight you upon entering through the main entrance.

  • Alternatively, if you want to save Kacha without the tough fight, then you will need to locate the Rear Door Key, which can be found a short distance away from the Silent Obelisk landmark. Once you have the key you can unlock a separate entrance and save Kacha without alerting the enemies. Once Kacha is saved, head back to Bokoko to finish the quest.

The Giants’ Key

Client Rewards Affinity
Kacha 5900G, 2200 EXP, Recovery Up IV None

Upon rescuing Kacha and completing Kacha’s Kidnapping, Kacha will ask you to defeat 5 Deluded Ignas to stop them from getting their hands on the treasure of the Giants. You’ll find the Deluded Ignas on an upper level near the Dark Swamp and you can get to it by walking down southeast from Exile Fortress. Once you have defeated the Ignas, you can head to the edge of the plateau and dig up the Giants’ Key. You can use the Giants’ Key to open a secret door in Exile Fortress. You can use the rear entrance or the main entrance of the fortress and then head to the wall behind the throne. When you examine it, it will be called the Wall of Sin. When examined, it will reveal a secret tunnel to the roof of the fortress. When you reach the roof, head over to the Altar and examine it. It will tell you that you need to offer something to the altar. Once you’ve examined it, head back to Kacha to complete the quest.

Be careful around Daksha Shrine, as the Unique monster, Clifftop Bayern lives there and will attack on sight. You do not have to fight it to get the Mirror though. Once retrieved, head to Exile Fortress to offer the Mirror on the altar. When you place the Mirror on the altar, you will receive the item Daring of Giants. Once you’ve accepted the treasure, 3 quest-exclusive level 32 spiders called Deified Queens will appear. This is quite a tough fight but you don’t actually have to defeat them to complete the quest. So whether you defeat the enemies or run away, head back to Kacha once you have the treasure to complete the quest. She will also let you keep the Daring of the Giants and hints you may need it in the future.
