Demon hunter walkthrough and maps
To reach “Distia” you have to speak with Perna in Garden of suffering. Check the previous parts of this walkthrough if you don’t have Distia quest yet.
How to reach Distia? Go to Kamael: Garden of suffering on 3rd platform there is a marble column blocking your way. Equip the rock cutting sword I’VE TOLD YOU NOT TO SELL and cut the column. There. Go in and meet Perna. 4000 xp and “Quest” is completed.
(Have a look at maps wisth suspicious walls and columns from now on. Especially ones that say “miss” when you hit them. They can be destroyed with the rock cutting sword and lead often to hidden rooms.)
You are now given the defeat “Two guardians” quest. (next map – OOC2 – is perfect for grinding BTW, 6 BerserkVarians in a straight line).
|Offtopic: Regarding the maximum of 70 items you may carry (and probably sick by dropping stuff by now), get to any camp and talk to the person with the Globe beside him/her (Marie in Dubaq). Get online and go to your personal stash. Point an item and choose “Upload”. You have a network stash with 70 free slots you may share with your other 2 saved games. Create 2 more saved games/characters and use them as mules. Later you may actually play them. The game has awesome replayability.|
Anyway, keep east, until the road forks to Ice and Fire. Fire seems to have lower level easier monsters, so I suggest you are supposed to go there first. The fire pocket dropped by the local suicide bombers is used to create 3k HP portions. You may grind them for a while. The drop rate is ~ 1 pocket per 3 kills. The blow makes 1000-1500 damage, so be careful.
At Flame of Fire 2 you will meet a huge bull and Perna will pop from nowhere again. Then you will need to hit the bull few times to understand, you can’t do any damage. 2500 xp and “Two guardians” (almost) complete. Back to Dubaq to speak with Dayl. Getting to him (use t-stone) gives another 1000 xp and ancient medicine recipe. Now you can
“Defeat guardian” and get Gina’s quest “New water portion” (5 blood from Menkuro). If you have the ingredients of the ancient potion – mix and Go back to Distia. If not, get 5 Kuro blood from Distia’s fire zone, go back to Cave below Stigia and kill some CaveWacooms for their drops and then execute the hunter quest for count Peltos few times, until he drops his fire hair. Evan in Dubaq gives the quest.
Menkuros for “New water potion” are abundant in eastern fire part and 5 drops are easy to get. The quest gives 2600 xp and 980 gold.
Leus and Richard in Naru will also have side quests for you, Leus wants Phaladume mineral and gives 4000 xp and 3700 gold. Richard wants 3 bacuarium minerals that are much more hard to collect. So either leave those hard to collect quests alone or do them if you have another character that has Bacuarium through the network stash. Phaladume and Bacuarium can be collected from the secret cave in Cave of Darkness. You already have the Rock Cutting sword. You did not sold it, yes? I know It sucks but you need to carry this cheap sword all the time.
If you want Bacuarium, SAVE before entering the Secret Cave in Cave of Darkness. Collect the 3 ores. If no Bacuarium drops – reload and check again. I’ve noticed, that the left 2 ores are with the better chance of dropping Bacuarium and Phaladume, while the right ore near the chest drops only Iron and Green minerals.
For the 3 Bacuariums Richard will give 5400 xp and 3000 gold. I don’t recommend doing this quest at all.
Bacuarium sells for more than 200k gold in the market. And this is the price of one very good set sword.
|Also offtopic 😉 Around this time, You will manage to collect 30% of all recipes. The gift is 3 cubics. You may collect them in any shop by choosing “Gift items”.|
Laba, the fire guardian has one absurdly easy tactic to kill, if you are fire user. Cast firewall on the ground where he will be standing and quickly go in his direction to provoke him to charge. Jump above him to avoid 1400 damage and wait. Laba will stay in the fire and get damage until fire is over. Then set fire on the previous place he was standing and provoke him again. Jump again when Laba charges and take his place on the other side. Repeat until Laba is down. Any other DoT skill will also work.
For Glashire you need another Ancient medicine potion. Go slay Peltos again (need to retake hunter quest from Evan in Dubaq camp if you have not figured this out already). It may take few times until Peltos drops fire hair, so you better also get hunter quest for Lukanar – Guardian of hell (20th level rocktasha in the room just before Peltos). 470 easy hunter points at your level. If he drops hair, the hard part is over. Kuros in Distia drop blood and Wacooms in Cave of darkness drop dwarven idol. Grab the 3 hunter quests for the Cave of darkness if you feel like getting some more extra points for later. If not, just drop in the same pit Buru kicked you with Perna and go one map east. 6 wacooms in a straight line. Good place for grinding also.
Before going to Glashire, get the hunter quest for Mowook. He is on the way down to Glashire. The map after Mowook (Cave of ice 3) has a small ice column on the southwest room that can be sliced with the Rock cutting sword. The hidden cave has a chest with another relic of the treasure king. Collect. They are 12 total.
Glashire is killed easy with the same tactics as Laba. He falls faster, because he is vulnerable to fire. Gives 3200 xp for quest completion and opens
“Middle of chaos” quest. Once you are done with both guardians, the door in Hearth of chaos 1 will open and you can go there. Restock. Repotion. Heal. Entering and a talking with Perna will start the next main quest, when you press “Y”. 500 xp and very long blah-blah with Lideal and the two elite hunters Kiba and Kira. Traitors. Cannot save during this next quest. (And I really suggest you DON’T rush It. Grind. Collect stuff. Make money. Grind again. Level 45 char is barely able to do some decent damage on Bormenta.)
“Over the holy gate” – need to kill guardian and get the key. Bormenta hits 3-4 times in a row with his swords, dealing 1300+ damage with each hit. Get the best potions you can afford.
There are 3 pillars with colored crystals above them. Fire, Ice and Lightning. Bormenta is invulnerable, while the pillars stand tall. Start jumping and hitting them while avoiding Bormenta hitting you. Hit the pillar with opposite element spell or a sword. DO NOT destroy the pillars completely.
If you destroy the Lightning pillar (worst case) Bormenta gets Jump-stun attack with 2k damage (green circles in hand). Jump in the opposite direction when he jumps to avoid stun. If you are caught and stunned and he charges you with sword slashes, drink potion and hope for the best. You are toast if all hits land on you. You are probably around level 40-45 and have some 6-7000 HP. You can’t take all the hits.
Destroying the Ice pillar gives him an Ice icicle attack (blue circles in hand). Easiest one. He will erupt an icicle from the ground toward you. Every second in the sharp cold ice hits you with ~750 damage. Double dash or jump away. If you are not in the Ice, you don’t take damage. While there is Ice on the ground, Bormenta will be unable to start another special attack, so take advantage and hit him hard. I suggest using as much DoT skills as you have in possession.
Destroying fire pillar gives him fire dragon slash attack with 2500 damage (red circles in hand). The attack is slow and can be avoided by jumping. He will be immobile for few seconds after the attack and you can charge or use range skill.
Leave all 3 pillars on “one hair” of life and then destroy them at once with few quick jumps and slashes or with a spell like Dragon Breath.
When all 3 pillars are down Bormenta will be killable. Be prepared with at least 50 x 3k health portions or better if you can afford them. The fight takes time and needs patience. Jump alot and take advantage of the gaps between his hits. He will try to walk in your direction slowly and when in range will charge with any of his 4 skills. Just observe what colors are circling around his fist and you will know how to react. You receive “The Wing” and 4500 xp for completion of “Over the holy gate” quest.
|“The wing” Will be your safe haven once you acquire it. Every time your Health falls below 30%, a small wing icon will appear top-right on your game screen.Pressing the Icon will freeze everything for 5 seconds. You can gulp a Health potion and move away from the heavy fire or that monster , that is bludgeoning you.After 5 seconds, time will start slowly restoring to normal, until game speed restores completely. You can also take advantage in heavy fights, to cast all your hard-damage spells and retreat to safe platform, away from danger.
“Key of truth” quest is next. Return to Dubaq to tell Evan. 500 xp and he tells you not to disclose you are a “People of the wing” (another bad translation from Korean?) From here, things fork with subquests again. Chu, Baron, Evan and Mirachu will all want your help. Yay. No more grinding. The subquests are quite easy:
“Full of coldness” Baron wants 5 ice teeth from Gias. 2680 xp and 600 gold.
“It’s all about style” Chu wants 10 storm wings from Distia’s drakes (Fatalmuton). 2500 xp, 500 gold and a lecture in confidence 😉 Opens “Troublesome favor” quest to kill Horosdumpas and Bersekhellons. 10 each. 2800 xp 600 gold.
For “Element” Mirachu needs 2 ice rocks and 2 flame rocks from Soulless and Terrorocktasha. 2350 xp and 2100 gold.
All subquests are in the Eastern Distia maps. Only Berserkhellons are inside the Halls of Chaos (2-4). They hit hard, but respond well to swords.
The main quest is given again by Evan, you need to bring a “Letter” to Hotsan. So go to Naru camp. 500 xp and some beard pulling with Jabra again. Hotsan asks you to kill Liam. Again 😀
Davichi in Naru will also give you a sub quest “Give me research data“. It is a rare drop from Soulless in Distia (the floating ice crystals that hit Icely hard and mob you). 2710 xp 2000 gold.
“Beginning of a nightmare” is the main quest to kill Liam again (grab also the hunter quest for points). As you reach Liam’s map, Elen will come and call you Creator of the demons, then he will abduct Perna. Kill Liam. He should not be a problem now. You are 10-15 levels better. Go east, where you will be greeted by Greed. He will confirm Elen’s claim, that you were once King of demons and will tell you interesting story. 3000 xp 4000 gold. Opens
“Marlborose” quest. Go back to Hotsan in Naru camp for 600 xp. He tells you to “get this and go to Gehena deepest blah-blah“. He actually refers to Canyon of Destruction 4 and gives you
“To Talagaron” quest. The 3-rd camp you are supposed to go is already visible on the world map. RepoRtion if needed and go there. 600 xp to reach camp. This concludes everything about Distia (and turned quite long), So I am gonna break It here and continue in part VI.
The hunter quests that can be done in Distia are mostly not worth the item collection and the damage taken by the mini bosses. Easy to kill are Lukia and King Slime. Glashire and Laba, even if they are very easy to kill with DoT skill – need to have Ancient medicine. And for the medicine, you need some count Peltos hair drops. It also takes A LOT of time and potions to kill Bormenta the Guardian again. Not cool for the lousy drop rate, little gold and hunter points.
