Level 35 Trial of the ChallengerClassBladedancer, Destroyer, Gladiator, Sword Singer, Tyrant, WarlordRaceHuman, Elf, Dark Elf, OrcLocationDion Castle TownNPC that starts itKashRepeatableNoRewardMark of the ChallengerNote: You cannot finish this quest until you are level 36 (minimum). You will need a minimum of 9000 Adena to complete it. This quest is much easier if you expect to be close to level 40.
1. The quest begins by talking to Kash, whom you can find in front of Dion's Warehouse. When you accept the quest it will ask you to get a Shisrashi's Ancient Scroll. Shisrashi is a kind of Medusa that you can find, with its Cave Basilisk Minions, to the Northeast of the School of Dark Arts in a cavern. Look for the waterfall on the map, the cave is on the south side of the hill where the waterfall is and you can enter from the lake, from the side of the Elves of light or from the side of the Dark Elves.
(Note: Before running to kill her, try to get (if you don't already have it) a long-range weapon. Why? Because during this quest you will have to kill several monsters that have guardians that are much slower than them. so the best thing is to kill only the monster that gives you the quest item and go past the escorts).
Go to the cave and kill Shisrashi. When she dies you will get a key and a chest will appear. Point to the chest and open it using the key. You will get a Scroll and a small amount of Adena.
2. Talk to Kash again, he will give you a letter (Letter) and send you to meet Martien in Giran. It's at the west entrance of Giran, near the first building.
Martien will ask you to go to Floran and kill a monster named Gorr. You will find it in a cave. If you look on the map at the road triangle south of Floran, on the west side is where you should go. There is a hill to the west, run to the top and go down the other side, since the entrance to the cave is on the west side of the hill (/ loc: 5185, 85457). Once you kill it, you will get the quest item Watcher's Eye1 (or something like that). Talk to Martien again (Note: Since the next monster to kill is in this area, I tried to kill them both in a row to save me a trip. Save it, it doesn't work).
3. Martien will then ask you to return to the same area to kill Braham. Do you remember the triangle of roads? You can see Braham's cave from the east side (/ loc: -19822, 185419). This monster is something different, since, if after killing it a boy named Raldo does not appear immediately, you must also kill the Basilisk escorts one by one, until Braham reappears. When he does, kill her again. This time Raldo should appear, as well as the quest item Watcher's Eye2. It seems that if you don't kill some of the guardian basilisks Raldo sometimes doesn't appear (at least it happened to me).
Talk to Raldo, who will tell you that both Kash and Martien are liars who have kept you spinning for their own ends. In addition, they have caused you to cause damage that you must now repair, for which you will have to teleport to Dwarven Village from Gludin's Gatekeeper. Once there, talk to Filaur who is in the building in front of the Warehouse.
4. Filaur will tell you that you have to kill a monster in the deepest part of the Mithril Mines (If you don't have an Elmore map handy, this is a good time to buy one…). You can walk or pay 700a to the Gatekeeper who will send you to the north coast, thus saving you a long walk (and it is not advisable to cross Abandonned Mine, unless you know the way very well). Note: While you are in the mines remember that several monsters are aggressive, so it is advisable to stop from time to time to kill those that follow you to save yourself problems, such as 1vs10 or more ...)
On the radar you will see a yellow dot indicating where you should go, but that is only useful when you are close, in the mines, since most of the trip you will have it out of range. Enter the mines and start to go down, when you get to the large circular room, take the only available exit, and go left in the only place where you can choose the direction (if you make the wrong way, you will return to the circular room) . You will now enter a large cavernous area. Go up (below you would have to go through the water) and cross the bridges until you reach the last island, with tons of Succubus Turen and Succubus Tilfo. Your quest monster will be there, the Succubus Queen. She has a guardian who shouldn't be a problem for you. She cleanses the area of monstrous agros and kills the Succubus Queen and her guardian. Now the yellow dot on your radar should disappear, but again, you won't be done until Raldo appears. He may only appear at night, but not being able to know for sure when it is night (you are inside a cave, remember), sit back and keep killing the Succubus Queen until she appears (Note: Sometimes the Succubus Queen and her guardian fall into the water, so if you don't see her around the island, look for her in the water, kill her and go back up to the island where she appears).
When Raldo appears, she will speak to him and will give you the Mark of the Challenger quest item. Congratulations, you did it!
