Complete guide on obtaining your level 50/50 Elite Skills the old fashioned way

This is the complete guide on obtaining your level 50/50 Elite Skills


Start:
To start the quest you need to have both your classes at level 50 and have all the other Elite skills.

When you have this go to the Class Hall in Varanas and talk to Sigg Fletcher. He will send you to Central Plaza to talk to some eye of wisdom members.

This will start your quests!

Arkana’s Fearlessness:

Infernal Blackhorn x3 – These are dropped by Blackhorn Trotters and Silencers as well as Blackhorn Dorglas from Paspers Shrine (BB)

Premature Soul Death x 2 – Dropped by Krodamar and Krodamon the last two bosses in NoM. These are not a 100% drop rate.

Arkana’s Ambition:


You will need to head to Ystra Labyrinth for this quest and get a Frost Energy from Frost Energy Guardians as well as a Flame Core from Flame Rune Knight.

Take the Flame core to Mystic Alter to the Evil Ice Spirits (Where you get the holy water) use the Flame core on the mob when its HP is below 50% to receive . Evil Spirit Cry

Take the Frost Energy to the level 50 Ice Dwarf Instance to Thynos the last boss. Once again use the item when the mob is below 50% to receive Fire Attack.

Arkana’s Memory:

You will need to kill Talomo in Treasure Trove, Hafiz in Paspers Shrine, and Ensia in Kalin.
Note: The items off these bosses are not a 100% drop.

Arkana’s Wisdom:
Ice Frgment x1 – Dropped off of Evil Ice Witches in the Winternight valley aswell as Aisha.
Note: The drop is rare off of the Witches but seems to be 100% off Aisha (not confirmed)

Rune Drop x10 – Dropped off any mob that has the word “Rune” in their name in Kalin Shrine.

Arkana’s Toughness:
Cactus Needle x1 – Dropped off any Cactus boss on Cactus Hill.

Hair of Raichika the Destroyer – Dropped off Raichika the Destroyer the boss mob in the back of Royals Refuge in Ystra Labyrinth.
Note: Not a 100% drop rate.

Rune Energy Infuser:
Talk to D’Monk Jarfur in Central Plaze to obtain a Rune Energy Extractor. You need to keep this item for 15 days when the time is up it will turn into a Rune Energy Infuser.
Or
Talk to Noab Lucerne and you can buy a Rune Energy Extractor for 500 Phirius Token with a 10day countdown.

Arkana’s Soul:
(I will add these as they are posted)

Priest – Go to the Big Dig in Dust Devil Canyon and find Horatio Gerter. When you talk to him he will spawn a level 50 mob, kill it to complete the quest.

Scout – In Silverspring near Ravenfell find Charly Morph. He will spawn a lvl 50 mob, kill it to complete the quest.

Knight - Go to Sacilia by the Zurhidon camp; aggro 10 mobs and pull them to a guy who will kill them for you. - (ty sniperbob613)

Warrior - Go to Ravenfell, at the lake in Ghost town; talk to the incarnation of Iron Rune Warrior, and kill him.
Note: He has magic damage immunity, and there will be Cavies with magic immunity who run up to him. If they get to him they will heal him. They will all drop regeneration sigils so you should never be at a loss for hp. - (ty sniperbob613)




Once you have all 7 pieces take them to Ivora Kaminsky in the Class Hall. (You can take them to her after you obtain each one) When you give her them all she will give you the Arkana on the class you completed.

You will then need to go and obtain all 7 pieces again but for your sub-class.

This means you need to do everything twice. You can not obtain your elite skill without obtaining both sides of Arkana.

I hope this guide will help out some people! Thanks!

thank u for the guide. Too bad ppl wont do it the old fashioned way , theyll just do one mundane quest in xaveria and get that elite skill certificate. Which is why almost all new players are inexperienced in instances.

I just recently obtained a moas core. I've done all 6 of my 50 elites in heffner. If I do these quests, will I be able to start the moa weapons quests?

Apparently you can't get the moa quests if you didn't get your elites in Varanas.

I believe it is possible to get the Moa Weapon quest if you do the level 50 elite quests in Varanas and actually receive the level 50 elite skills for the second time there.

I think so too. Never completed the weapon quest but was going to do elites again on 3rd Class to see if the other weapon quest opens up. However I understand that you can only complete 2 Moa Weapon Quests - whether once for 2 different classes or twice for one class -but I've not personally tested it.

I did the class specific quests for Priest side (twice, I think) although I got the actual elite skills in Heffner - because it added to my Quest count.

....and nice guide. :D Slight addition - Cactus needle also drops from mobs, which is why its one of the more common items. Never noticed if it was only Needle Cactus but I'd guess so.

Just watch out for the 'crotch meets face' issue. O.o

It's worse than that, actually. People will do one silly pirate-related quest at Camp Heffner, why bother trekking all the way up to Xaveira for that?

I already have the level 50/50 Elite Skills (done the 'hard' way) on my Priest/Knight (1st and 2nd classes).

I now am trying to complete the level 50/50 Elite Skills (doing it the 'hard' way) on my level 70/60 Priest/Scout (1st and 3rd classes), and obtained the Arkana:Priest and Arkana:Scout (edit: typo, was 'Priest'), which reside in my backpack. But the NPC Ivora Kaminsk seems bugged now and wants to only accept another set of the 7 components, and the NPC Sigg Fletcher just give a half garbled speech about "not yet experienced enough". [yes, i have earned the lvl45 elites for P/S and S/P]***

It has been awhile since I quested through the final stage of obtaining any lvl50 elite skills. What am I doing wrong?


*** edit: it appears that although I still have all the P/S elites up to lvl45, *ALL* my S/P elites have disappeared. That might explain why NPC Sigg Fletcher refuses to help me. Is that a know bug? Will it reoccur again later?

Yup, that was it. I re-OldBag'ed all S/P elites from level 15 to level 45, and then NPC Sigg Fletcher taught me the level 50 elite skills for P/S and S/P.

So the failure mechanism seems to be disappearing elite skills on 3rd classes over a period of 3 months which involved a large number of patches, any of which could have been the culprit.

It had been 3 months since starting the elite skills process for a 3rd-class combination, since I had 5 Rune Energy Infusers bug out and disappear on me out of 6 attempts, and after the last 4 consecutive Rune Energy Infuser bugged out and disappeared on me, I simply gave up and just submitted a bug report, which was lost in the system for still another week, and I had to submitted still another bug report to find and un-lose the first bug report, to have support just mail me a Rune Energy Infuser. The "Disappearing Rune Energy Infuser" bug, which is a 2.5 year old bug, SHOULD have at least been fixed by now.

Unfortunately i cannot do that silly quests since my laptop is so damn slow so one always get up. Now on my alt I am forced to do it oldfashioned way hehe.

Does it work to re-do the level 50 quests even though you've already done the Heffner quests? I would love to grab some Moa skins so I wanted to confirm this.

For what i've heard it doesn't but haven't tested it out myself. Maybe someone else can confirm my answer or make me happy aswell.

No seems you can't get the Moa quests if you do the level 50 elite skills the hard way.
It says come back when you are experianced enough.

By "hard way" here, do you mean the pre-Chapter-IV way, or do you really mean "easy way", that is, by doing an Old Bag quest?

By doing the old fashinod 'hard way' (like questing and arkana stuff) you CAN get the moa weapon quest (currently i am doing that quest)
