Why I made this?


This is a guide of Ellin forest pq. The reason I made this was for people who doesn't even know what Epq is, and help doing Ellin Pq. I also hope this will revive Epq. (My friend recommended me also.) This Guide was made with my knowledge ONLY(except Boss stat part.)


Thanks for Sticky Guys

Where to go?



Where to go? Well as you can guess, you go to Ellin Forest.
What? Where is Ellin Forest? Ellin forest is located in Helios Tower 101th floor.
I though it Ludi Pq? Ludi pq is located in Eos tower (left) which is in opposite direction of Hellios (right.)
I am at Hellios tower 101th, but it's not Ellin forest? Just go up the stairs, and press "up" button at clock. (Time machine?)
Once you are at Ellin Forest just head right

Tips



- I recommend to bring "All Cure Potion" for the Boss
- Bowmen, Brawler, and I/L wizard (They will help you alot in Stage 2)

  • Remember* You don't get exp from each stage rather you get all the Exp when you beat the Party Quest.
  • By the way* you will transformed.

Warrios will be transformed into this
Magicians will be transformed into this

Stage 1 Killing



This is simple stage, just kill all monster "Poisoned Lord Tree"spawned on the way.
When your done killing them all proceed to stage 2, by going through portal in very right side of the map.

Back to Top

Stage 2 Luring



This is pretty tricky stage. If you look around the map there is few monsters called "Poisoned Stone Bug." Don't kill them YET! When you kill the monsters it will sometimes drop "Contentrated Poison." It will be pointless if you just kill in random places. This item cannot be picked up. In order to proceed, you want to kill those monsters at the bridge. When "Contentrated Poison" is dropped in the bridge, after few second it will disappear and turn into "Diluted Poison." You will need 4 of them. If you want them to come to bridge this is best place to lure. Brawler with corkscrew, or bowmen with power knock back will work well here. If you also have i/l wizard freeze them on bridge so they won't escape.

Once you got 4 "Diluted Poison" go toward to right side of map. You will see green thorn, drop the "Diluted Poison" front of the thorns one at a time. When thorn disappears, proceed to next map through the portal.

Stage 3 Maze



This map is a maze of portals. Simply all the party member want try to find Ellin (in very bottom right corner.) Once one of any member of the party reaches the Elin, just simply talk to her to proceed to next stage. (Doesn't matter whoever talk to Elin.) It's all luck.

Back to Top

Stage 4 Capturing



This stage is just catching the monsters. Talk to the Ellin, and take first option which is "Give me the the Purification Stone." Each member will get 10 of them. If you already did Ariant Pq before, this will be easy for you. Just simply weaken the monster and click on purification stone to capture them.

Few Advice:
-Hp Bar won't show
-Don't go near poison mist (you'll lose some hp every second.)"
-Put purification marble in one of your keyboard set-up
-Don't attack a monster already being attacking by your party member.

When you get "Monster Marble" which change into after you capture the monster. Give it to the leader, which he/she need 20 of them to proceed to next stage.

Stage 5 Jump Quest



This stage is just a jump quest. At very top there will be 3 platform with 3 boxes each. Just hit the boxes and if you find purple stone of magic go head back all the way down. Talk to Spirit to go next stage. (Doesn't matter who has it.)

Back to Top

Stage 6/Final stage Boss



This stage is a boss stage, what you all have waiting for! it won't spawn right away, if you goto the middle you will see some rock pillar (or whatever it's called.) Whoever has the purple stone of magic drop it. After few seconds later, Boss will spawn. This boss has three lvls. When you kill the boss it will like turn into stronger one, (little similar to Zakum.) You wanan use all cure potion on the 3rd level, where boss uses curses. Also watch out for skull which makes you move backwards. When you kill it, it will drop massive potions, and mesos! (WOOT, and sometimes Bosses Card) Now simply head to portal and go to exit. If you have some stone which boss dropped, drop at the fountain looking thing at the exit stage. If you do that, fireworks! You don't really have to do it though.
They also drop Weapon att 60% scrolls.

Rewards



When you exit the exit stage, you will be earned with 54k (Yea), and Alter piece. Sadly there is no bonus stage.

When you get 20 Altaire pieces and Rank B, you can earn yourself Alter earring (1/1/1/1)
If you have 30 Altaire pieces, Rank A, and Alter earring, you can earn yourself.. Glittering Alter Earring (2/2/2/2)

If someone of you noticed they have same looking earring at cash shop. -.-

You need 5 party members, not 4. Also, poison mist doesn't make you lose exp? It makes you lose 50 hp.

I'm just irked by some of the typos... Alter in place of Altaire? I'd just like to note that after you gather the 50 initial pieces to get the Glittering Altaire Earrings, you don't need to get 50 again to get a second pair. I got my second pair with 30 pieces while hogging all the Witch Tokens during the Halloween event.

Edit: way above there, there's already a helpful guide on youtube on EPQ.

Edit numbar 2: I -thought- 3 was the minimum, while 5 was maximum? Yeah, I had a listing (wrote it down on my notebook beforehand for proofreading) for EPQ; I seem to recall saying how it would be helpful to have two regulars to PQ with (Friend and I were getting the earrings together) seeing as how the minimum is 3... But I might be wrong :x
