Mercedes Questline Guide Part 1

Disclaimer


This guide was made on the basis that Skyenets has been too busy with her Mercedes character and thus hasn't updated her guide in terms of the quest storyline, as well as per the request of the community here. However, once she finishes her one, I will consider closing this one.

This guide is purely for the quests relating to the Mercedes storyline and does not include other quests (unless notified), training areas, skill or AP guides etc (for Mercedes). Those things are available in these guides: Skyenets's guide or d3athkn1t3's guide.

Also, the guide is labelled Part 1 as I'm unsure as to whether or not I can fit the entire quest storyline in one thread. If I'm able to fit the entire storyline in this one thread, disregard the Part 1 label.

NOTE: This guide does not include Empathy Bonus Quest EXP.

Changelog


January 2nd 2012, Guide first published, only up to the chair and mount sections. Disclaimer, Changelog and extra notes added in.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

NOTE: For many of Mercedes' quests, arrows will guide you towards the task. They will not guide you back to the NPC to complete the quest however.
NOTE: A lot of these quests involve talking to yourself. Self quests can be initiated and or completed at any time and from any location.
NOTE: For a lot of these quests, the following are very helpful for completing them:
Elven Blessing - Initial - allows for the teleportation of Mercedes to Elluel from most locations. Cooldown of 30 minutes.
Updraft - Initial - When on ladders, ropes or similar things, by pressing the Jump button (default on the Alt button), Mercedes will shoot straight up to the top. In the case where the ladder, rope or similar thing is very long, Mercedes will go up quite a distance but not to the top. Useful for travelling.
Glide Blast - 1st Job - Another useful skill for travelling, allows for Mercedes to quickly jump from place to place. It becomes even more useful when used together with Updraft. However, it can become quite troublesome for platforms right in front, as Mercedes will jump over them and or miss them. And because it's linked to the normal jump skill, it can be accidentally activated when its not needed.
Potential Power - 1st Job - A less useful skill when compared to Glide Blast, however it is still useful for travelling. Like Glide Blast, it can become troublesome when jumping platforms.
Rising Rush - 2nd Job Although used as a rushing skill (hence the name), it can also be used to dash across the map. When used in maps with lots of mobs in combination attacks with skills such as Parting Shot, Aerial Barrage or Rising Moonsault, it becomes both deadly and agile. However, on maps with no mobs such as towns or when mobs are not near you, it cannot be used for travelling. The same goes for in maps with platforms such as Eos Tower.
Lightning Edge - 4th Job Similar to Rising Rush, it is generally used when mobs are around.
Mysterious Portal - NPC in Elluel - At the very right end of Elluel, this NPC is first used for one of Mercedes' quests. From then on, it becomes a free taxi which allows for the teleportation to any one of the four main Victoria Island towns - Henesys, Ellinia, Perion & Kerning City.
Return to Nearest Town scroll - The name of the scroll describes what it does. Useful when finishing quests from a far location.
Move quickly UI - Found in most towns, it allows for teleportation to important areas or NPCs, such as the Free Market, the nearest Intercontinental Station (very useful in Victoria Island), the town's taxi (if it has one) & the Dimensional Mirror among other things.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


Back to Contents

Q: Do you HAVE to do these quests to get the chair and or mount?
A: To obtain the chair, you have to do quests 1-18, 29-41 & 46-48. Obviously, doing the job advancement is recommended. For the mount, only quests 1-18, 29-32 & 49-50 need to be completed.

Q: Will there be a longer storyline? It's too short!
A: As of yet, that is the storyline. Perhaps the storyline will expand when all 5 Hero/Legend classes have been released, or every single job class has been released.
