Exploring Kaede Castle!

Loads of Screen Shots coming up! hang on tight! btw, if the screenies are too small, just right click n select view image... cos this stupid blog layout doesnt allow me to put any bigger pics... and imma lazy to find a custom made blog layout that has a bigger space for the posts part.

Basically, you enter the castle through this NPC from mushroom shrine, it doesnt cost anything to get transported from mushroom shrine to the castle, you have to pay 3k mesos to get the mushroom shrine thru the tour guide as usual though.

yup, palankeen is the npc u have to talk to. click on them and they will say the following:

okok, aft so much talk they tell you that its free to go and finally bring u there...

and that's how the town map of the castle looks like... there are several npcs hanging ard, 2 of them will give u a quest.

hunt 100 etc drop from the mid-tier ninjas

and here's the quest reward:

another quest:

a simple quest, just go in the next portal to the castle entrance and talk to the guy there.

you will be rewarded with a face acc 100% hp scroll:

aft which he presents you with a new quest - get 50 etc drop from the female ninja, the etc drops are looks like steelys, just that the metal part is blacker in color and it has a blue ribbon instead of a red ribbon.

give the items to the falcon trainer

you will get a 100% face avoid scroll for completing the quest

you will then be assigned yet another quest to hunt 50 ninja head scrolls (etc drop) from the head ninja (the one that looks like kakashi with 2 purple flames at the side) and a samurai knight etc drop (the lvl 120 samurai boss)

you will then be assigned yet another quest to hunt 50 ninja head scrolls (etc drop) from the head ninja (the one that looks like kakashi with 2 purple flames at the side) and a samurai knight etc drop (the lvl 120 samurai boss)
here's how the samurai knight armour piece looks like:

the head ninja scroll is in the 2nd square from the top, 1st from the left (below the pieces of time).

complete the quest by talking to anzime:

you will be rewarded with a scroll for eye eq for acc

She will then give you another quest to defeat tonosama/the emperor.

no idea abt the rewards, my super noob character is evidently in no shape to defeat that toad boss ><

Now for the actual exploring part...

thats the castle entrance, weak lvl 25 mobs here. the hole in the window brings you into the castle.

there, you can see the name: the lvl 25 low tier ninjas

some more pics of the castle entrance and the npcs there:

once again, back at the entrance to the castle:

1st castle hallway - only low tier ninjas here. this is the map you will be at once you enter from the outside of the castle. Note that all the maps in the castle have the same name... so its kinda irritating and easy to get lost.

me killing another ninja...

OKOK! here's the portal that gets you to the next map!

2nd castle hallway: aft entering the portal, you are brought here.

in this map you will find a new mob - the lvl 30 spear knight

you can also see that in a trap on the floor just to the left of where i'm standing. if you walk over the trap, you will be teleported to another map IMMEDIATELY, no need to press up or anything... not sure where this trap leads to though.

To go to the next map:

basically, there a hole in the wall where i'm standing, my pet and mane kinda blocking the view tho ><

3rd castle hallway: getting in... you will see red haired, mid-tier ninjas

there are ALOT of hidden portals and traps in the whole place, some of the paintings (like the one i'm standing in front of) teleports you either ard the room or to some other map. i have not tried out or found out all the traps/maps, and others i've tried and forgotten, i only know the way to the jump quest map...

To the next map:

basically, the trap teleports u to the next map

4th castle hallway- you will end up here... 1st time i reached here, i had absolutely no idea how i got there... i didnt notice the trap in the floor till much later on

still in the same hallway...

that's the name of the mob, and its the one u're supposed to hunt 50 etc n give to the falcon trainer

low leveled players be warned! those innocent looking female ninjas can do over 600 magic damage! they deal much lesser touch damage though, only 60 or so to my char (but depends on ur WD!)

To get to next map:
There is a hole at the top right hand side of the map

5th castle hallway you end up here....

see those white hair guys? they are lvl 80 high tier ninjas

To the next map - there is a trap on the floor on the right hand side:

6th castle hallwayupon entering the hole, you are brought to this place with more white hair ninjas and a variety of other weak ninjas

Low leveled chars be careful! these lvl 80 high tier ninjas deal 800+ touch damage (500+ with PG, depending on ur WD also)

To the next map:
Enter the next map thru the hole at the top left hand hand of the map, careful of the trap on the floor while walking there...

7th castle hallway
finally you get to see those head ninjas! they are lvl 100 with attacks up to 2.5k so be careful! my lvl 18X BS pt mate died from his attack cos i believe he nvr on mg and didnt expect the damage dealt to be so high...

There are two ways to reach the next map, the 1st is from yet another hole, this time in the window.

the 2nd way is by simply entering the hole you are at when u 1st enter this hall.

8th castle hallway When you go thru the hole in the window...

When you enter thru the hole on the top of the map...

basically both leads you to the same place.

To reach the next map, go thru the hole in the wall:

9th castle hallway and you will end up in the final map before the jump quest, this is also where the samurai knight spawns

and so i cc-ed from chl 6 to chl 20, went back to cc1... then finally at cc3...

To get to the jump quest, go to the portal on the EXTREME top right of the map - the portal may be blocked if u put ur quest alarm or watever not there.

basically its top the RIGHT of where my char is standing in the pic below, where the two eyes are looking at you

Jump quest!
You have to complete this jump quest to reach a series of 3 portals, where u have to pick to correct portal to go up (like those orbis pq thing) and then eventually you will reach the map with the lvl 180 emperor and toad/frog boss, who deals 13k magic and 17k touch damage or smthing like that... i've not gotta past the jump quest nor do i intend to go fight the boss so yeah...

here's the beginning of the jump quest:

and at the middle... and the furthest i got to before giving up:

you have to redo the jump quest each time u want go fight the boss... so... enjoy ><

The merchant
in most maps, there is a hole in the wall in a location similar to how to get from the 2nd hallway to the 3rd hallway that will bring you to the merchant aka pot shop. upon exiting the pot shop, you will end up in the 2nd hallway, at the hole in the wall place, just press up to get to the 3rd hallway. some maps the merchant is access from other holes/places though, but like i said, i've not mapped out all the links between maps >< this place is really ONE BIG MAZE!

The Samurai Boss Fight!
1st let me say that my char is very noob, and with all that vista dc bugs i have as good as zero bossing experience... prior to this the hardest boss i soloed... was papulatus >< (and i died once there... wow ><)
there's the boss...

battle engaged!

cornered the samurai...

a 155 dk came halfway thru the battle but i didnt want pt him... >< wanted to solo and see how long i'd take and how many pots i'd use... he very nicely cc-ed and didnt even hit my boss once thkfully. in this pic u can see teh boss using his sword slash attack, which hits me from 2.4k to 2.6k damage.

shortly aft he cc-ed... i died >< not sure if its cos my pet didnt pot n i didnt notice in time, or cos i set my pet to use the hp pot at 55% of my hp which is only 8.75k hp - lesser than the boss max lighting damage of 9.2k and i didnt notice my hp fall below 9.2k...
did take any SS of my ghost hanging there lah... hurriedly revived (ouch, 10% gone!) and rushed back to the boss fight map

i guess no one came and whack the boss in my absence...
and i pressed n held my brandish button... >< (and occasionally move a bit cos reach XXX no. of hits and the game wont let me continue hitting)

abt... i dunnoe, 25-30% left?


changed standing position... still cant avoid his sword slash damage tho...

last bit of hp left!

Bossed downed, and dropped me... erm wat? an etc drop (the samurai knight armour piece for the quest, see above) and 4.8k mesos... WOW ><

before: 1720 honsters, 1241 supreme pizzas
started battle at 2:02pm
after: 1261 honsters, 1126 supreme pizzas
ended battle at 2:38pm

total time taken: 36mins (including time taken to walk back from town)

total pot usage: 459 honsters, 115 supreme pizzas.

drops: 1 samurai knight armour piece, and 4.8k mesos. nothing else ><
cost: 2.869m in honsters n supreme pizzas.
wasted a net of 7% exp... ><

the boss has only 2 attacks a lighting attack in which he will raise his sword into the sky and summon an AoE lighting attack which hits me for 8.6k to 9.2k damage, and a sword slash that hits an area in front of him (range similar to SM's soul blade) for 2.4-2.6k damage. touch damage ard 8k+ (with pg)

and that marks the end of my adventure today and yesterday in kaede castle!
