Required Equipment

The First Visitor

  • Once there you may talk to Scrutinon to learn more about Quirefang. When you are ready enter the Hole south of Scrutinon.
  • In the -1 Floor walk north-east through the underground passage and enter the Water Vortex. Once you appear at the other side of the cave (Gray Beach entrance), use your Rope on the ground spot.
  • After going up, head north to reach Gray Beach. To the north-west there are a Depot and a Temple. Go to the east and enter a hole.
Liquid Black Strange Machine
  • Spectulus will then explain his story about the Deepling area and offer you some special equipment to make it possible to go underwater there and give you 150 gp to travel back to the Gray Island.

Shortcut to Fiehonja (Teleport)

  • Afterwards you can go back to the Gray Beach and straight into Fiehonja. Follow the map and enter in a hole.
Liquid Black Into Fiehonja
  • Walk to the south and and pass the big stairs, after you have passed the stairs, walk to the south until you find ramp leading up.
Big Stairs
Liquid Black Into Fiehonja2
Liquid Black Into Fiehonja3
  • Go downstairs and walk to the north-west (you will face many kinds of deeplings and a Shark) until you find a ramp going up.
Liquid Black Into Fiehonja4
  • Now you will see deepling's constructions, walk to the north until you find a ramp going up to the north (some kinds of deeplings in the way). Go to that ramp and walk to the north until you find downstais with a teleport in the middle, down them and enter in the teleport.

Liquid Black Into Fiehonja5 Teleport Fiehonja Shortcut

  • Now you can back to Fiehonja's main area using the teleport in Gray Beach.


Dark Disintegration

First Stage

In order to please Qjell you have to sacrifice enough Hearts of the Sea gems to replace the original, lost long ago.

  • In Fiehonja, go downstairs south-west from the statue, head north and west through thin passage near Warning Sign untill you find ramp leading up.

1st Stage Rough Crystal Map 1st Stage Rough Crystal Map2

1st Stage Rough Crystal Map3

  • Go back, few steps north-east from the Warning Sign there is a "Strong Vortex" enough to cut gems. Use your crystal on it to have a chance to get a handmade Heart of the Sea.

1st Stage Heart of the Sea Map Strong Water Vortex

  • Now return to Qjell's statue and sacrifice (use) the gem. You have to use the gem on the "head" of the statue, not the feet.


After 100 hearts have been sacrificed, a big red glowing gem will appear on the statue, and no more crystals can be mined that day. You can get additional points by doing soul net missions (see below) or killing Deepling Guards.

Red gem 2

The Qjell statue loaded with the large red gem.

Second Stage

Deeplings Stage 2
From the Qjell statue, head north, down the ramp and continue north up a ramp. If the server is in Deepling stage 2 or 3, there will be no wall blocking your path north. Continue walking north until you come to the library (you'll find Seashell Bookcases against the walls).

Be careful as Deeplings come in large groups from hereon. Go up the ramp and head east to another ramp. Go up once, head around the ramps to the west to a teleport.

Optional: If you delivered Qjell 10 or more Hearts of the Sea during the latest Deepling stage 1, you will gain access to the teleport. Inside it there is nothing dangerous, when using the chest and the gold on the floor you can get some random rewards, as a rare reward you can get a True Heart of the Sea.

Head north through a corridor and down a set of ramps leading outside of the library.

Head furthest east where you will find a ramp (look at map 4 in the image above), go up the ramp and you will find deposits of Fossilised Coral. Use a pick on the deposits until you mine a Crate Full of Coral. Since you need 10-15 to gain access to your rewards you are recommended to mine three crates full of coral (this is the limit at any one time). Once you have enough coral, head back down the ramp and about half way back to the library ramp and you will find another ramp on the south side of the cave (again check map 4). Head up this ramp and you should find an incomplete ramp and a construction tile. Use a crate of coral on the construction tile and use a shovel on the incomplete ramp. Repeat this until you have attempted to repair the ramp at least 15 times.

Note: if there is no coral or the ramp is complete, the server is in Deepling stage 3, you cannot repeat stage 2 objectives during Deepling stage 3.

Liquid Black Crate

If you have done this enough, you will gain access to the active Deepling boss when the world progresses to Stage 3.

Third Stage

Deeplings Stage 3
The third is the final stage and thus there's no way to further progress. The third stage brings about some changes to Fiehonja:

  • The third area of Fiehonja is unlocked (the area the coral was delivered will now be a constructed ramp), including access to Manta Rays and any one of the three Deepling guardians (Tanjis, Obujos, Jaul).
    • The boss is selected at random (most commonly Tanjis, Obujos and then Jaul) and remains the same until the world change reverts back to the second stage (and the coral mission is redone).
    • You gain a once-only access to the current deepling guardian if and only if you delivered the appropriate amount of crates (see second stage above). Upon entering the teleport to a deepling guardian, you may stay there for up to 20 minutes, during which time the deepling guardian may spawn (spawn time is 5-10 minutes). After killing the deepling guardian at least once, you may open the chest by his lair to receive an additional reward.
  • The coral mine now contains no coral deposits.

Deepling Guardians Hint

  • If you do not open the guardian's chest after killing one of the deepling guardians you will get the chance to fight the other two guardians on the same character the next days depending if they visit their lairs or not. That means if your are lucky you actually have the chance to kill all three guardians with one character while the third stage is open and then take all rewards from their chests within the order you killed them in. Note that this will only work as long as you do not take the reward from any chest before killing all three deepling guardians.

Deepling Outfits

Outfit

Seashell Bookcases Location Seashell Bookcases Location2

  • Get the 3 different books. This should take around 20 keys, depending on luck.

Seashell Book (Blue)Seashell Book (Green)Seashell Book (Yellow)

  • After gathering all three books, "use" them, go to Spectulus and ask him about "books". You have to hand them over to him to get the Deepling Outfits.

First addon

This the hardest addon, but the idea is very simple. When you kill each boss (Obujos, Tanjis and Jaul), the permission to open the respective chests will be granted to you. There's a chance to get some items from them. When you get Obujos' Shell, Tanjis' Sight and Jaul's Pearl, you have to go to NPC Rock Steady. You have to say "Hi", "Collect", "Yes" three times, that way you will give the items to him to complete his collection. When you have handed all of those he will thank you with the first addon. Also you will get the achievement Spolium Profundis.

Second addon (helmet)

Deepling Addon 2 Quest1
  • When you go down the stairs start heading east untill you find a ramp going up.
Deepling Addon 2 Quest2
  • In this cave, where you can only find Deepling Worker's, look for spawns (eggs) with blood on them.
Deepling Spawns
  • The goal is to remove the blood with your Soul Net on all the spawns in the cave. This needs to be done fast because the bloods respawns after 2 minutes. Characters around level 100 could do this solo with haste and mount (levels 150+ doesn't even need haste spell if they know optimal route) but lower levels might need a team for this. There are a total of 22 deepling spawns
Deepling Addon 2 Quest3
  • If you were fast enough and cleared all the spawns, you will get a message saying that all the evil left this place

Deepling Spawns Orange Message message after cleared all spawns.

Deepling Spawns Small Golden Anchor Message message when you get the Small Golden Anchor.

  • If you didn't get it you need to wait a while before trying again, because Soul Net goes on a 5 minute cooldown after clearing last spawn.

Deepling Spawns Cooldown Message cooldown message

  • Note that only the person who uses his Soul Net on the last bloody spawn has a chance to get the item.

Deepling Spawns Pure Spawn This message means that this spawn is already cleared and isn't needed to use the Soul Net again.

  • To continue your world needs to be at stage 3 of deeplings world change.
  • Go the the stage 3 area and search for the big golden anchor. (to get in the stage 3 and the big golden anchor follow the maps in the next presentation from Step One to Step Five).
  • Step One
  • Step Two
  • Step Three
  • Step Four
  • Step Five
Deepling Addon 2 Quest
  • Use your Small Golden Anchor on the big anchor and you will be teleported to a room with an npc inside it.
  • The answer to his riddle is "Flou".
  • Follow the conversation untill he gives you your addon.
  • Or you can just ask him about his helmet and he will give it to you and take your Small Golden Anchor
  • If you step in the teleporter you will get teleported back to Qjell's statue. So make sure the people in your team without a Small Golden Anchor are strong enough to get back.

Enjoy your addon!

Transcripts

Underground machine

Player: hi
Spectulus: Hello Player! You're late, do you have no concept of time? My mission is of utmost importance. If you are not interested in helping me, you might as well just leave.
Player: underground machine
Spectulus: Ah, the machine you found at that island. Well, I built this thing to venture far beneath the very soil we walk on. I suspected something there. Something deep down below. Something evil. Even more so than the dreaded bugs which are crawling my study. ...
Spectulus: Drilling hole after hole only to get stuck in another hard, unbreakable sediment again and again, I was about to quit this pointless enterprise. ...
Spectulus: However, the very last day I lingered on that island, I finally fell into a large hollow right under the beach. My drill was shattered and the machine was not mobile anymore. ...
Spectulus: I am well aware that this may sound laughable now - at this part all of my colleagues burst into laughter anyway - but suddenly there were stairs. Incredibly large stairs that led to the underworld. A world deep under the sea - can you believe this?
Player: yes
Spectulus: You do? Well, the end of this story was that I had to leave the place. ...
Spectulus: I couldn't explore what lies below the stairs as there was an unpredictable stream. Diving into these waters would have been an uncontrollable risk, even with the means to survive without any air. ...
Spectulus: So I used the portable teleporting device I installed into my machine in case of an emergency and went home. I could only take the most important research documents with me and had to leave most of my equipment in the cave. ...
Spectulus: Of course I also left my final notes with the coordinates there. And for the life of me I cannot remember where I dug that stupid hole. ...
Spectulus: When I arrived at home I immediately started looking for a way to manoeuvre in these chaotic conditions once I rediscovered the lost entrance. I never remembered it, but it seems you found it as you indeed have my original notes. ...
Spectulus: Oh and just in case you want to complete what I have started - feel free to do so. Up to it?
Player: yes
Spectulus: Well, if you really want to delve into this - I could use some help. So you have found my machine on that island? And you found the notes with the coordinates? Then you can find the entrance! ...
Spectulus: Just look for a large staircase with sprawling steps. There is an unpassable stream there that will prevent you from venturing further on. But fear not, you can indeed travel down there - with these small enhancements I created. ...
Spectulus: At first, take this gold for the passage by ship and return to the Gray Island from where I started my expedition many years ago. From there you should find a way to reach the Gray Beach of Quirefang as no ordinary ship can land there. ...
Spectulus: I will put this under your footgear. Here you go. And this in your nose. There. And there will be no further problems for you down there. Except- ah, well you'll find out yourself soon enough, won't you?
Player: yes
Spectulus: Then off you go! I'm sorry that I cannot offer you any further help but I'm sure you will find support along your way. And - be careful. The sea can appear pitch black down there.
Player: bye
Spectulus: Yes yes. Goodbye Player.

Outfit

Player: hi
Spectulus: Ah hello again Player! I still have one or two other missions for you. There are also some tasks someone needs to attend to.
Player: book
Spectulus: You found what? Well, you'll have to hand it over to me to help you with this, will you?
Player: yes
Spectulus: The first volume of the Book of Death. That must have been written in Lagatos's final days. A very dark tone underlies these writings. ...
Spectulus: Mh. Hm. He talks about a change, a transformation. Something has happened to the creatures of the deep that turned them towards war. ...
Spectulus: We need all three books if we want to unravel this mystery.
Player: book
Spectulus: You found another volume of the Book of Death? Well, I need to see this one. Will you give it to me?
Player: yes
Spectulus: The second volume of the Book of Death. It seems the Deeplings were indeed changed by an outside force of some kind. They turned against each other, started to suppress certain castes. ...
Spectulus: There is only one other book needed to unravel this mystery.
Player: book
Spectulus: You found another volume of the Book of Death? Well, I need to see this one. Will you give it to me?
Player: yes
Spectulus: The third volume of the Book of Death. Mmh, mh. So the 'blackness' found them. They rule the 'black void' - I assume the deeper parts of the sea - and they will 'conquer the surface'. ...
Spectulus: 'And they will walk the path of pain', also, 'they will be followed by a trail of blood' and finally, 'their work is cruel, their reward death'. It gets quite dark from there on, though. ...
Spectulus: Now that I have read all three books it is clear that an outside force, something unknown, was manipulating the Deeplings. ...
Spectulus: They were never the peaceful type but they would never deny the heir of their culture to take part in a full-scale war. ...
Spectulus: The oppression of the lesser Deeplings, destruction of knowledge, abandoning their libraries and cult sites - someone WANTED them to do all this. ...
Spectulus: Why? I don't know. What to do? I don't know either. I can, however, still help you as good as I can from here. ...
Spectulus: During my failed expedition, I also found some kind of armor. It was broken but I managed to complete it using some rare materials from my stock. ...
Spectulus: This thing is quite heavy but should work just perfectly underwater. I hope this will help you on your quest to find out what really is going on in these depths.
Player: bye
Spectulus: Yes yes. Goodbye Player.

First addon

Player: hi
Rock Steady: Need {help}? Or are you only here for some {news}. Either way, make it short.
Player: help
Rock Steady: If you want anything, you should talk to Old Rock Boy over there. I do collect stuff, though. So just ask if you're interested in helping me.
Player: collect
Rock Steady: I collect everything that reflects light in strange ways. However, I am bored by my collection. And there wasn't anything new to add for years. ...
Rock Steady: I like pearls for example - but I have already enough. I also like shells - but I can't even count how many I already own. ...
Rock Steady: If you find anything of REAL VALUE - bring it to me. I will reward you well. You don't already have something for me by chance?
Player: yes
Rock Steady: Great! Let me see. Amazing! I will take this, thank you!
Player: collect
Rock Steady: Have you got anything for me today?
Player: yes
Rock Steady: Great! Let me see. Amazing! I will take this, thank you!
Player: collect
Rock Steady: Have you got anything for me today?
Player: yes
Rock Steady: Great! Let me see. Amazing! I will take this, thank you!
Player: collect
Rock Steady: Have you got anything... what? You want what? A reward? HAHAHAHAAAA!! ..
Rock Steady: No I'm just teasing you. I'm really happy about my collection now. ...
Rock Steady: Well, I found some kind of weapon a long time ago. I believe it may be especially helpful underwater as it is from the deep folk. In any case it is of more use for you than it would be for me.

Second Addon

Player: hi
Navigator: (riddle ruins the format)
Player: flou
Navigator: Lhnjei gouthn naumpi! So. Another visitor. No, don't say anything, yet - I know why you are here. I can explain everything.
Player: explain
Navigator: By entering this place, you have earned the right to learn what this is all about. This is a long story. Are you sure you want to hear this?
Player: yes
Navigator: I was once captain of a ship, the Skyflare. We were traders for King Tibianus and on our way home when we got into a storm. We fought hard to escape the cold grip of the sea. ...
Navigator: I myself did what I could to navigate the Skyflare out of this mess. They depended on me. Me, the navigator. And I succeeded. ...
Navigator: However, when the sea calmed down and the rain was finally gone, we recognised that our ship wouldn't move. It wasn't my fault. ...
Navigator: There was a strong gale and we could already see this island on the horizon. There were seagulls all around the Skyflare to lead us to dry land. But the ship did not move a single inch. It was NOT my fault. ...
Navigator: We dived under the bow and saw that it was stuck right on the tip of a sharp rock. The world below us was treacherous, we could see large underwater mountains and a labyrinthine system of caves and holes. ...
Navigator: Some of my men panicked and hijacked the dinghies to reach the island, others tried to swim. I remained on the ship. It was not my FAULT. It was not. ...
Navigator: Do you have enough, can I stop?
Player: no
Navigator: When none of my men returned, I forced myself to make a decision. Either dying on this dead ship or plunging into the liquid black beneath. ...
Navigator: In my desperation my thoughts fell onto a strange armor - a gift from a trader we dealt with just before the storm. Strange ornaments and fish-like elements decorated this armor. We thought it would fit just perfectly into the captain's cabin. ...
Navigator: He said something like a 'blessed breath' and 'to subdue the drift'. We thought he wanted to sell us worthless decoration and make it look interesting. If I had only listened to what he said. ...
Navigator: I figured that this thing would have something to do with diving or at least protect me from the icy water. I put it on, grabbed a shimmer glower from our storage to light my path and jumped in. ...
Navigator: Do you want me to go on?
Player: yes
Navigator: Hmpf. The armor was working. After some time I was surrounded by darkness and could only see as far as my shimmer glower would me allow to. But I didn't feel the cold - I could even breathe through that helmet. ...
Navigator: I dived into the deep black. Across rugged mountains, vast fields of kelp, swarms of strange fish. ...
Navigator: And then I laid my eyes on a creature I have never seen before. I now know that they call themselves Njey. You would call them the 'Creatures of the Deep' or 'Deeplings'. ...
Navigator: I am now convinced that when they first saw me descending in that suit with the light of the shimmer glower encompassing me, they took me for their God King Qjell. And that's when it all started to make sense. Don't you agree?
Player: yes
Navigator: Of course you do. And they did, too. They obeyed me. They adored me. They followed me. ...
Navigator: I learnt everything about their culture, their life, their goals and their problems. I found out about vile insect-like creatures inhabiting the surface of the island. And their waiting for the return of Qjell. ...
Navigator: I practically rewrote their history. I WAS THE SECOND COMING. I WAS QJELL. I, THE NAVIGATOR. ...
Navigator: And I navigated them out of their miserable lives. Away from their petty interests. I led them to a greater purpose - to form chaos out of order, to bring back the storm to the seas and to make THINGS MOVE. Do you want to hear the rest as well?
Player: yes
Navigator: I control EVERYTHING from this room, navigating the fate of this land for more than a century now. Can you see all these funnels? My voice travels through them and throughout everything down here! ...
Navigator: The stones on the beach? The trader up there? That was ME ALL THE TIME! I lured YOU into creating all this chaos up there and down here! ...
Navigator: You thought you could choose sides? Think again! I nearly led you into the destruction of two species! ME, THE NAVIGATOR! I CONTROL YOU, I OWN YOU! QJELL AFAR GOU JEY!
Player: helmet
Navigator: NAAAAARGH. If you promise to leave me alone and NOT TO TELL MY SECRET to anyone - you can have one. ...
Navigator: NO! Not the one I'm wearing. I am BOUND to this device. This suit has granted me a longer life. However, once you have spent a certain time with this - there is no turning back if you know what I mean. ...
Navigator: The armor will merge with your very body. Holding you captive, holding your life in its hands like a ransom. ...
Navigator: Using Deepling craft and various components from down here, I created several spare helmets - just in case this one gets damaged. If you return that small golden anchor to me, you can have one. Will you?
Player: yes
Navigator: Then take this one. And remember: DO NOT TELL ANYONE ABOUT ME OR ANYTHING YOU HAVE HEARD HERE TODAY.
