Quest guide

The first part of the quest is talking with 4 different NPCs. The best place to start the quest on is Venore. Then continue to Plains of Havoc Temple, where you will find Oldrak, you will have to kill cyclops, demon skeletons and other PoH creatures, even maybe lured Giant Spider or Dragon, follow this map:

Go up by the stairs and you will find Oldrak:

Now you need to talk with him like this:

Chatlog
You: Hello
Oldrak: Welcome player! Rarely I can welcome visitors in these days.
You: Hugo
Oldrak: Ah, the bane of the Plains of Havoc, the hidden beast, the unbeatable foe. I live here for years and I am sure it's only a myth.
You: Myth
Oldrak: There are many tales about the fearsome Hugo. It's said it is an abomination, accidentally created by Yenny the Gentle. It's halve demon, halve something else and people say it's still alive after dozens of years.
You: Yenny the Gentle
Oldrak: Yenny, known as the Gentle, was one of most powerfull magicwielders in ancient times and known throughout the world for her mercy and kindness.
You: Bye
Oldrak: Good bye, player!

Now continue to Edron to find Zoltan, the best way to get a Edron from PoH is by going Venore and then boat to Edron. When you arrive at Edron follow this map to get to the Magic Academy:

map


When you arrive at the Magic Academy then go to the part the map shows:

map


Then go upstairs two times and you will find Zoltan:

Now you need to talk with him like this:

Chatlog
You: Hello
Zoltan: Welcome player, student of the arcane arts.
You: Yenny the Gentle
Zoltan: Ah, Yenny the Gentle was one of the founders of the druid order called Crunors Caress, that has been originated in her hometown Carlin.
You: Crunors Caress
Zoltan: A quite undruidic order of druids they were, as far as we know. I have no more enlightening knowledge about them though.
You: Bye
Zoltan: Use your knowledge wisely.

Now continue by going to the Druid Guild in Carlin The best way now is to get to Edron Carpet and travel to Femour Hills. To reach Carlin Druid Guild from Femour Hills use this map:

map


After you arrived at the Carlin druid guild then you will find Padriela:

Chatlog
You: Hello
Padreia: Welcome to our humble guild, wanderer. May I be of any assistance to you?
You: Crunor's Caress
Padreia: Don't ask. They were only an unimportant footnote of history.
You: Footnote
Padreia: They thought they have to bring Crunor to the people, if people did not find to Crunor of their own. To achieve that they founded the inn Crunor's Cottage, south of Mt. Sternum.
You: Bye
Padreia: Farewell, player.

Now you need to talk with Lubo, you can find him northeast of Thais. The easiest way to get to him from Carlin is travelling with the boat from Carlin to Thais and then walk like this map show:

map


You should find Lubo in the house where the map leads to:

screenshot


Now talk to him and say these things:

Chatlog
You: Hello
Lubo: Welcome to my adventurer shop, player! What do you need?
You: Crunor's Cottage
Lubo: Ah yes, I remember my grandfather talking about that name. This house used to be an inn a long time ago. My family bought it from some of these flower guys.
You: Flower Guys
Lubo: Oh, I mean druids of course. They sold the cottage to my family after some of them died in an accident or something like that.
You: Accident
Lubo: As far as I can remember the story, a pet escaped its stable behind the inn. It got somehow involved with powerfull magic at a ritual and was transformed in some way.
You: Stable
Lubo: My grandpa told me, in the old days there were some behind this cottage. Nothing big though, just small ones, for chicken or rabbits.
You: Bye
Lubo: Good bye.

After you talked with Lubo you are done with the first part of the quest. If you haven't got all things you need to the quest then get them now. If you are low on cap a smart thing could be to use the levitate spell instead of bringing parcels. If you haven't got Key 3899 then you need to get it.
To get Key 3899 you need to get to Minotaur Tower southwest of Kazordoon. Here's a map showing the way (note: there are many other ways too):

map


Open the hole with a shovel and go down, go this way (you may have to kill minotaurs and minotaur archers):

map


After that rope yourself up and follow this map:

map


You will have to take use on the dead tree to get the key you need. Watch out because you can get damaged 200 with poison if you use on the tree.

screenshot


Now you need to get to the Paradox Tower for the first time at this quest. The Paradox Tower is located north of Minotaur Tower but to get there you need to follow this map first:

map


Now you have to go up this hill a few times. Use Parcels or Levitate.

screenshot


At the first three higher floors you don't have to face any creature. At the forth floor there are 2 Wyverns. Go to the fifth floor here you will find the level 30 door:

screenshot


Now continue past the level 30 door and get upstairs by the ropespots two times. Then you will find a room where you need to sacrifize skulls. Put 1 skull on each metal thing like this:

screenshot


Step on the strange carving plate and you will get teleported to the Paradox Tower. If you need to go back then step on the strange carvings. Continue by going north from the place that you got teleported to. Cut the grass with the machete to continue. Open the doors with key 3899. Now you will see a big place with grass. Use this table as you do it.
D= Doors, C= Cut grass here, W= Wait here, S= Switch, N= Not needed to cut, G= Get here after stepping on switch, R= Run to the location and go upstairs, M=Magic Wall
[M][M][M][M][M][M][M][M]
[M][C][C][C][C][C][C][C][M]
[M][C][N][N][N][C][N][C][M]
[M][C][N][R][N][C][N][C][M]
[M][C][N][C][C][C][N][C][M]
[M][N][C][N][N][N][S][C][M]
[M][N][N][C][C][N][N][W][M]
[M][M][D][D][M][M][M][M]
Stay at this place (W) until the grass starts growing back.

screenshot


Right after that step on S and run to the stairs that appear at point B. After going upstairs you need to put the switches in right direction. From left to right it is like this: Right, Right, Left, Left, Right, Left. like this screenshot shows:

screenshot


If you done it right move the single switch and the ladder should appear. Upstairs you find a ghoul behind some magic walls. The ghoul need to move the box to this location to make the stairs appear:

screenshot


Go up again, at this floor you will find a door. Open the door with your key. Here you need to put fruits in the right order. The order from left to right is: Melon, Banana, Cherry, Apple, Grapes, Coconut. It should look like this:

screenshot


After moving the switch a ladder should appear. Now go up again. At this floor you need to place a white knight chess piece and a black knight chess piece at the right location. You can look at the statues, at the side where the white knight statue is put a white knight statue chess piece. At the side where the black knight statue is put a black knight chess piece. It should look like this:

screenshot


Pull the switch to make the stairs appear. Now you will meet Riddler for the first time.

screenshot


You will need to talk to him and answer his questions carefully. If you answer wrong you will be sent to hellgate. The conversation should look like this:


Chatlog
You: Hello
Riddler: player! HEHE! Another fool! Excellent!
You: Test
Riddler: Death awaits those who fail the test of the three seals! Do you really want me to test you?
You: Yes
Riddler: FOOL! Now you're doomed! But well ... So be it! Let's start out with the Seal of Knowledge and the first question: What name did the necromant king choose for himself?
You: Goshnar
Riddler: HOHO! You have learned your lesson well. Question number two then: Who or what is the feared Hugo?
You: Demonbunny
Riddler: HOHO! Right again. All right. The final question of the first seal: Who was the first warrior to follow the path of the Mooh'Tah?
You: Tha'Kull
Riddler: HOHO! Lucky you. You have passed the first seal! So ... would you like to continue with the Seal of the Mind?
You: Yes
Riddler: As you wish, foolish one! Here is my first question: Its lighter then a feather but no living creature can hold it for ten minutes?
You: Breath
Riddler: That was an easy one. Let's try the second: If you name it, you break it.
You: Silence
Riddler: Hm. I bet you think you're smart. All right. How about this: What does everybody want to become but nobody to be?
You: Old
Riddler: ARGH! You did it again! Well all right. Do you wish to break the Seal of Madness?
You: Yes
Riddler: GOOD! So I will get you at last. Answer this: What is your favourite colour?
You: Green
Riddler: UHM UH OH ... How could you guess that? Are you mad??? All right. Question number two: What is the opposite?
You: None
Riddler: NO! NO! NO! That can't be true. You're not only mad, you are a complete idiot! Ah well. Here is the last question: What is 1 plus 1?
You: any number
Riddler: WRONG!


Now you will be sent of to Hellgate if you did it like you should have done because you can't answer the last question right. You don't need to get the Hellgate key or something. You will start at the beggining of Hellgate and need to get out from Hellgate. To get out from hellgate follow the next maps and descriptions. Go up by the ladder and follow the first map (only skeletons on the way):

map


After that follow this map (only skeletons on the way):

map


Now follow the next map (only skeletons on the way):

Now follow this map (rotworms and a carrion worm here):

map


Follow this map now (ghouls and rotworms on this path):

map


Follow the next map (rotworms, ghouls and a carrion worm on this way):

Now you need to use this dangerous way, you have to kill Skeletons, Ghouls and Beholders, there is also a risk for lured Elder Beholders, Demon Skeletons or even Evil Eye:

map


Now follow this map, no creatures here:

map


At the hill there you will need to get up by using levitate or parcels. Get up again and then one more time. You will have to follow this map now to leave Hellgate:

map


Now you will need to get out of Ab'dendriel Wasp Cave. If there isn't a brigde above then move the switch and then continue by going up. After that you need to go to Mintwallin to find A prisoner that is a NPC. First of all get to Thais. Before going there you can check if you got key 3620 allready because you need it, you get it in Mintwallin if you don't have it yet. You will need to get to Ancient Temple and follow some maps to get to Mintwallin. Here's the location of Ancient Temple:

map


Follow this map:

map


Follow the next map (so far no creatures):

map


Now get down the ladders two times and follow this map, at this way you may have to kill rotworms, then poison spiders, then orcs, orc spearmen, orc warriors, watch out because there can be a lured fire devil, here's the map:

map


Now get past the poison fields or use destroy field runes, follow this map:

map


Then after you went down follow this map that leads to the right hole (the other holes are fakeholes). On this way you may have to kill Minotaurs at the beggining and Poison Spiders near the Fakeholes:

map


Now go down, here you will face 2 Cyclops. The rest of the way here is without creatures. Follow this map:

map


At the end there should be a ladder. Go up twice to reach another tunnel. Follow this map:

map


After you reached the ladder go down two times. Then after that follow your final map to reach Mintwallin:

map


When you went down the ladder go straight to the brigde and from that point prepare to fight many Minotaurs. If you haven't got the key to the door that leads to the Prisoner's cell then go to the black dot on the map below, you can find the key in a drawer. Here's the map:

map


The blue line is the way to the prisoner. The black dot is the location of key 3620.

After following the blue line then climb the ladder and continue south until you find a door. Open the door with key 3620 and go up. You will find the NPC "A Prisoner".

Now you need to talk to him like this:

Chatlog
You: Hi
A Prisoner: Huh? What? I can see! Wow! A non-mino. Did they capture you as well?
You: Math
A Prisoner: My surreal numbers are based on astonishing facts. Are you interested in learning the secret of mathemagics?
You: Yes
A Prisoner: But first tell me your favourite colour please!
You: Green
A Prisoner: Very interesting. So are you ready to proceed in you lesson in mathemagics?
You: Yes
A Prisoner: So know that everthing is based on the simple fact that 1 + 1 = your number!
You: Bye
A Prisoner: Next time we should talk about my surreal numbers.

The number you get is importiant because you need it to continue the quest. If you for get it you can check for the number in your Questlog.
Now get back to the Paradox Tower. You will have to do the Skull part, the Grass part and the Ghoul part again. You don't have to do the rest of things again unless someone moved the switches. Now you will need to talk to Riddler again, this time like this:

Chatlog
You: Hello
Riddler: player! HEHE! Another fool! Excellent!
You: Test
Riddler: Death awaits those who fail the test of the three seals! Do you really want me to test you?
You: Yes
Riddler: FOOL! Now you're doomed! But well ... So be it! Let's start out with the Seal of Knowledge and the first question: What name did the necromant king choose for himself?
You: Goshnar
Riddler: HOHO! You have learned your lesson well. Question number two then: Who or what is the feared Hugo?
You: Demonbunny
Riddler: HOHO! Right again. All right. The final question of the first seal: Who was the first warrior to follow the path of the Mooh'Tah?
You: Tha'Kull
Riddler: HOHO! Lucky you. You have passed the first seal! So ... would you like to continue with the Seal of the Mind?
You: Yes
Riddler: As you wish, foolish one! Here is my first question: Its lighter then a feather but no living creature can hold it for ten minutes?
You: Breath
Riddler: That was an easy one. Let's try the second: If you name it, you break it.
You: Silence
Riddler: Hm. I bet you think you're smart. All right. How about this: What does everybody want to become but nobody to be?
You: Old
Riddler: ARGH! You did it again! Well all right. Do you wish to break the Seal of Madness?
You: Yes
Riddler: GOOD! So I will get you at last. Answer this: What is your favourite colour?
You: Green
Riddler: UHM UH OH ... How could you guess that? Are you mad??? All right. Question number two: What is the opposite?
You: None
Riddler: NO! NO! NO! That can't be true. You're not only mad, you are a complete idiot! Ah well. Here is the last question: What is 1 plus 1?
You: your number

Riddler will teleport you to the lootroom.

Note: Read the next part carefully.
Before stepping on any of the switches you need to desice which 2 loot you don't want. You should only step on 2 of the switches to be able to choose 2 of the prices. On each switch you step on you will remove a price. Choose one of the 6 possibilities.
It looks like this:
K= 10k Gold
W= Wand of Cosmic Energy
T= 32 Talons
E= Phoenix Egg
[K][W][T][T][T][K]
[E][E][E][K][W][W]
One example of how it works is if you step on W and E you will get Wand of Cosmic Energy and Phoenix Egg removed. And therefore you can only get 10k Gold and 32 Talons.
Enjoy your loot!
