Those wishing to achieve the title of Paladin, Dark Avenger, Temple Knight
and Shillien Knight must complete the Trial of the Calling quest, the first
of three tiers of quests. The quest begins in Giran Castle Town.
1. In .Giran Castle Town locate Grand Master Hannavalt.
Grand Master Hannavalt:
Do you hold higher ambitions than being a mere Knight? You must examine
your motivation for fighting. It may be to protect loved ones, for the glory
of the kingdon., for power… But true knights fight for the ‘calling’ that
is given them. The Trial of the Calling is the way for you to determine what
your calling is.
Say you will attempt the Trial of the Calling.
Grand Master Hannavalt:
First you must find Sir Aaron Tanford. He resides in the southern Wastelnds
of Gludio. He shall give you your first test.
2. Travel to the southern Wastelands and speak to Sir
Aaron Tanford. (See map below)
Sir Aaron Tanford:
Dignity is one of the virtues that define a Knight’s worth. Dignity takes
various forms in different people…
As we speak there are vicious gangs, who know nothing of dignity, prowling
the Wastelands disturbing the residents. These gangs are led by Harrod. He
was once a prestigious Knight of Gludio.
During the war against Grecia, Harrod was tempted to treason by the enemy’s
leader. He became an agent of the invaders! Sir Klaus Vasper chased him doggedly
and eventually put a spear through his heart. Karol said that ‘A knight who
abandons his dignity is as good as dead’. Not wanting to give the traitor
the dignity of a funeral, his corpse was left to rot in the Wastelands.
This made his soul become a cursed devil, and the only way to get rid
of him is to free him from the curse with this rusty sword. The undead skulls
wandering around the Wastelands are his minions. As you destroy the filthy
undead skulls one by one, you will confront the Spirit of Harrod. Kill him
with the rusty sword I gave you, and remind him of the noble dignity of a
Gludio Knight. If possible, please bring proof of his end.
3. Take the Old Knight’s Sword along with plenty of soulshots and
perhaps a healer, to the southern portion of the Wastelands and kill
Skeleton Raiders until the Spirit
of Herod spawns.
4. You will earn the Knights Tear. Return to Sir
Aaron Tanford and give him the Old Knight’s Sword and the Knights
Sir Aaron Tanford:
So dignity was lost to the errant knight for eternity? What a dreadful
curse! So it is his fate to wander the Wastelands forever…He has no one to
blame but himself.
Well done! You have completed the task successfully. Now you must go to the
Dark Elven Guild in Dion Castle Town and meet Sir Kiel Knighthawk.
He will be waiting for you with your second task.
5. Travel to Dion Castle Town to meet Sir Kiel Knighthawk.
Sir Kiel Nighthawk:
Nice to meet you, young Warrior. I am Kiel Nighthawk of the Griffon Knight
union. I already received a notice from Hannavalt.
One of the virtues that define a Knight’s brightness is a sense of justice.
There is a miserable history in this land of Dion because of the lack of justice.
Especially the unfair mortification of Sir Talianus is such a case. Sir Talianus
wrote in the report about the specific situations at the peasant’s uprising.
It was something that he prepared to give to the King, but unfortunately the
report was torn into pieces and Sir Talianus was executed. The Soldiers who
served him tried to collect the torn pages but even they were all killed.
Even until this day, there are some people who claim that they heard the
voices of the Knight and his followers, wailing in agony. Thou who sticks
to what he believed was right, but his spirits are still wandering on earth,
unable to side with Shilen…I want you to carry out the justice that he couldn’t
Gather the pieces of the report and restore the contents of his articles.
As you kill the undead of the Execution Ground one by one, you’ll be able
to gather the pieces of the report. Kill the Strains and the Ghouls to collect
the torn pieces of the report. When you gather all the pieces and complete
Talianus’s Report bring it back to me.
6. Sir Kiel Knighthawk sends you to the Execution Grounds to kill Strains
and Ghouls. He asks you to return with
a Report. The Report is made up of 10 Torn Report Pieces; once
all of the pieces are collected it will show as only as one Report Piece
instead of the Report as suggested.
7. Return to Sir Kiel Knighthawk and give him the Report Piece(1).
He will reward you with the Orpic Mirror.
Sir Kiel Nighthawk:
The very report that Sir Talianus couldn’t deliver to the King until the end…When
you meet his spirit and promise him that you will deliver the report to the
King of Aden, he will finally be able to rest in peace. His spirits are now
captured in the doomed tree of the Execution Grounds. Take the Mirror of Orpic
with you. There is power dwelling in this mirror, which enables you to see
the spirits of the dead. Go to the Execution Ground and get rid of the Hanged
Man Ripper who is suppressing the spirits of him. Then you shall be able to
confront the ghost of Sir Talianus.
8. Sir Kiel Knighthawk will then ask that you seek out Hangman
Tree’s (referred to as Hanged Man Rippers) and kill them until Telianus’s
Dead Spirit spawns. Telianus’s Dead Spirit will give you the Tears of Confession.
Spirit of Sir Talianus:
The report that I tried to give to the King…Please deliver it to the King
But, listen young Warrior…I have something to confess. The depth of my sin
is deeper than the well…Until the day I pay of the debts of my sin, and until
justice settles down on this land of Dion, I shall not be able to rest in
peace. I do not dare to…
9. Take the Tears of Repentance back to Sir Kiel Knighthawk.He will take
the Tears of Repentance and assign your next task.
Sir Kiel Nighthawk:
Now that I hear your story, it occurs to me that there must be some other
reasons why the spirits of Talianus can’t rest in peace…I will have to do
some more research on this.
As for you, you should now go to the Hunter’s Village to take the
next stage in the trial. There at the Hunter’s Village you must meet
Sir Isael Silvershadow.
10. Travel to Hunter’s Village and speak with Sir Isael Silvershadow.
May the blessings of the starlight shine upon you. Hello, young traveler.
Welcome to the Hunters Village.
My name is Isael Silvershadow. I am a Knight of the Order of the Rose,
who once fought alongside Grand Master Hannavalt. But now I am retired and
live a quiet life here.
May the blessings of the starlight shine upon you. Hello, young warrior.
Welcome to the Hunters Village. True to Hannavalt’s words, you seem to have
the potential to become a great Knight someday.
Let’s briefly discuss the last virtue of a Knight, loyalty. Loyalty may
be towards a lord, towards the teachings of the divine powers, or to a town
and its residents whom you’ve sworn to protect… A good example would be the
guards that risked their lives to battle the Leto Lizardmen and protect this
village. The loyalty they displayed in sacrificing their lives to protect
their homes and loved ones is surely honorable indeed.
My task for you is to recover the Milita’s Article from the Leto Lizardmen.
The families of the fallen guards wish to hold a memorial for them. Considering
their sacrifice, should we not at least do this much for them? In order to
hold the memorial, we need 20 pieces of the articles. Well then, good luck
on your journey.
11. To obtain the required Milita’s Articles you must kill Leto
Lizardmen Soldiers. Once you have collected the 20 pieces return them
to Isael Silvershadow.
12. Isael Silvershadow will then reward you for bringing her the 20 Militas
Articles with a Tear of Loyalty. She then informs you that Grand
Master Hannavalt has requested you go to Father (Priest) Dustin in Giran Castle
Town. He will then give you your final task.
Welcome, noble Knight. May the blessings of Einhasad be with you.
I am troubled by recent violence of the foreign races. We have lost many
of our young in fights with them… Just six months ago, a fine, strapping young
lad named Leon the Athebaldt was killed in battle with the Breka Orcs.
Select Ask about Leon Athebaldt.
He was a dashing young knight, sworn to serve Einhasad’s holy will and
protect the innocent. He took his vow in this very temple. He was honorable
and devout young man, nephew of the famous Sir Collin. He was even considered
for canonization by the High Priest! We all had high hopes for him, for what
he might achieve for the kingdom and for the Goddess of Light… …but alas,
he has been taken from us. Oh well, it was the will of Eisenhad.
Select Ask about Athebaldt’s death.
Last winter a giant horde of blood-thirsty Breka Orcs swept in from the
north and invaded Giran. Those violent thugs looted homes and businesses,
and even threatened the castle. They game the Royal Guards quite a challenge.
Leon Athebaldt led his men in an attack on the Breka Orc encampment. With
remarkable courage, they killed the Breka Orc Overlords one by one. Thanks
to this effort the Breka Orcs were driven back into the north part of Giran.
The final battle to drive them entirely out of Giran was the fiercest
yet. The lone survivor of that battle was Leon’s servant. He barely escaped
with a shield and weapons inscribed with his master’s crest. According to
him, Athebaldt fought valiantly to the death, slaying Orcs to his left and
right. Eventually he was no match for the hundreds of Orcs that continued
to attack in waves against him. His remains have not been found. I’m sure
the Breka Orcs have taken them for some nefarious purpose. It saddens me deeply
that he cannot be given a proper burial.
Select Ask about the remains.
The Orcs have an appalling custom of carrying around the remains of their
enemies as a sort of charm or amulet. They say that the more courageous the
enemy, the greater the power… It is said that Athebaldt’s remains were cut
up into pieces and fashioned into amulets for the Breka Orc Overlords. These
creatures are fierce and violent! But I must give Leon a proper burial. Can
you retrieve his remains for me?
Select Please let me take that task.
Our religious traditions dictate that we can hold a funeral if we have
the skull, ribs, and shinbone. Slay the Breka Orc Overlords and bring back
Sir Athebaldt’s skull, ribs, and shinbone.
13. Priest Dustin will then take your Tear of Loyalty and ask you
to retrieve Sir Athebaldt’s skull, ribs and shinbone. Once you have all the
items return to Priest Dustin.
Thank you so very much. Now we may finally hold a proper funeral for Leon
Athebaldt. I have cremated part of his remains and put them into this urn.
Please deliver it to Leon’s uncle, Sir Collin Windawood. He is the Governor
of Talking Island.
14. Priest Dustin will then give you the Saints Ashes Urn. Now you must take
a ride to the Talking Island and locate Sir
Collin Windawood. Speak with him to find out your next task.
Sir Collin Windawood:
Could these actually be the bones of Leon? I heard of his glorious death
during the battle against Orcs…What a loss… Never did I expect that I would
see you like this, my beloved nephew! I regret I wasn’t with you at the moment
of your death!
Young Warrior, my family is in your debt. I know it wasn’t exactly easy
to recover his bones. Thank you so much. Take this letter to Priest Dustin.
Now I shall prepare for my nephew’s funeral.
15. Travel back to Priest Dustin in Giran and deliver to him the Letter
of Windawood. Priest Dustin will then gladly accept the Letter of Windawood
and in turn reward you with a letter commending your efforts. Take the Letter
of Dustin to Grand Master Hannavalt.
Grand Master Hannavalt:
Greetings. So, you have received your calling? You needn’t tell me what it
is. The virtues, actions, and responsibilities that you have seen, heard,
and felt are true callings of the Knight. Keep that deeply in your heart.
Accept this Mark of the Calling. May the good will of Einhasad always remain
in your heart…
16. Grand Master Hannavalt will reward you with the Mark of Duty.
