Before turning 76, you can work on three quests which are required for the class change quest. As you will most likely be hunting the mobs for these quests while you make your way to 76, it only makes sense to do them ahead of time. It will make your life feel a ton easier when you hit 76 and wish to become a Wind Rider as soon as humanly (errr.. elfishly) as possible. These quests are:
- The Finest Ingredients - Part 1
- Alliance with the Ketra Orcs OR Alliance with the Varka Silenos - Depending on which alliance you wish to side with
- Magical Power of Water - Part 1 (Ketra Alliance) OR Magical Power of Fire - Part 1 (Varka Alliance)
Elena then send you off to find a Tablet just outside of Ivory Tower. I find it easiest to port to the northern entrance of Enchanted Valley from Hunters Village and running over there. I always have trouble going the TOI route for whatever reason.
This tablet takes the stone and then sends you over to a different tablet in Valley of Saints as shown on the map. Get over top of the mark and then jump down.
The next Tablet is located outside of Ketra Orc Outpost on the far North East side as shown on the map. If you're careful, you can run along the edges and avoid all mobs.
After talking to the Tablet, Monument Watcher Ezekiel will spawn. Get buffs and full heals ahead of trying to fight this guy as any outside help will cause him to disappear. If you start fighting him and can't handle it, the good news is that you can run away from it very very easily. He will disappear as well when you do this, but at least you're still alive.
Once Monument Watcher Ezekiel is defeated, you will obtain the Resonance Amulet – 3. Talk with the Tablet again who will take this amulet and gives you direction to see Hermit found inside the Ketra Orc Outpost. If you go to the entrance and walk straight forward and then jump down the hill, you'll run right into him. There might be some mobs around so be careful and keep your shadow step on.
Hermit will ask you to choose a side. At this point, it does not really matter which one you choose, as long as you come back with the Divine Stone of Wisdom. First, you will need to have achieved level 2 in either the Alliance with the Ketra Orcs or Alliance with the Varka Silenos. After finishing this, you can then start on the quest that will get you the divine stone. If you Allied with Varka Silenos, you will need to complete the Magical Power of Fire - Part 1 quest. If you allied with the Ketra Alliance, you will need to complete the Magical Power of Water - Part 1 quest.
He will then send you off to the north side of Garden of Beasts to talk to another tablet as shown on the map. You should actually be able to just run there from where you are now. The tablet will take the Resonance Amulet – 4 and sends you to see a second fellow named Hermit found just outside of the Wall of Argos port in.
Hermit provides details on killing the 700 mobs
The 700 mobs can be accessed two ways. One is going left from the port in, and one by going right at the port in. I like going right so I'll show you how to get in that way. Make your way north and turn into the second laneway, but then make a sharp left at the fork in the road. You'll come to a big tunnel. On the other side of this tunnel, you'll find all the mobs that are required to kill. If you are in a party, every mob killed by another teammate will count towards your 700 mobs. However, if two people in the group need the marks, only one will be distributed at a time.
Any of the following mobs will count towards the 700 mob requirement.
For every mob you kill, you will receive a Halisha's Mark.
Once you reach 700 marks, the next mob that gets killed will spawn Archon of Halisha. There are rumors that you need to be out of party when Archon of Halisha is being killed in order for it to work. This has been tested and is not true. The real deal is that only one person at a time can obtain the rewards for killing Archon of Halisha regardless of whether said person is in a party or not.
After Archon of Halisha is defeated, you will obtain the Resonance Amulet – 5. Take this amulet over to the Tablet found within Wall of Argos. The tablet is found as shown in the map. Just make your way back through the tunnel where you came from and keep going until you are on the main path once again. Then keep going back as if you were heading to the port in and you will find that first road once again to turn into. This is where the Tablet is hanging out.
The tablet takes the Resonance Amulet – 5 and directs you to the last tablet which is found outside of Hunters Village as shown on the map. To get there, exit on the east side of the village, cross the bridge and follow the path. At a point the path breaks off into a bunch of different routes. At this point, just stick to being close to the edge of the canyon and you should run into it.
After talking with the tablet, Monument Defender Azrael and Eternity Wanderer Staris appear. Start killing Monument Defender Azrael (without using skills) and after a bit it will disappear. Then talk to Eternity Wanderer Staris in order to obtain the Resonance Amulet – 6
Talk with the tablet again. It will take the Resonance Amulet – 6 and instruct you to go back again where you started the quest, talking to Hunter Guild Master Black Cat found in the little hut behind the gatekeeper in Hunters Village.
Talk with Hunter Guild Master Black Cat and become a Wind Rider! Congratz!
