Alternate Way To Obtain Tier 3 Armor
Recently, an item was added to Kehn Kohski in Barren called Latin sacco operante.
This item costs 5,000,000 Guk Points, CAN be traded between characters, and will summon a bag containing your Tier 3 Armor.
This is the most time-efficient way of completing your Tier 3 Armor and moving on to Tier 4,
but Plane of Time B and other Tier 3 areas are still excellent sources of loot if you cannot yet handle the Daily Expeditions.
Entering Plane of Time
Note: You no longer need to obtain a key to enter Plane of Time. You can simply talk to Grand Archanist Fink in Barren and say "potimeb" without the quotes to enter Plane of Time.
Part 1: The Trials
1. Go to Plane of Tranquility near the Plane of Time entrance and hail the Guardian of Time.
2. Upon zoning in, you'll notice the Scion of the Keepers, who presides over the Plane of Time.
3. Upon hailing him, he will teleport you to Part 2 instantly.
Part 2: Riddle Me This
If you couldn't guess by the clever title, this next section involves RIDDLES!. Once you hailed the Scion of the keepers for the second time, you'll pop back down in the arena part, near Initiate of Time.
Upon speaking with the Initiate of the Time here, he will mumble stumble and groan, and eventually ask you a riddle. 4 NPCs will spawn near the Initiate of Time You must hail each one to find out what kind of answer they are, and say "you are the answer" in order to complete this part. If you choose the wrong answer, you'll have to start over from scratch, meaning re-do the trials.
Hail, Initiate of Time. Initiate of Time whispers, 'Time. It is a wonderful thing is it not. Here I have plenty of it. It is never ending. Time has no meaning here. It is our existence. It is what animates and drives us. How about a riddle?'
Questions / Answers below:
Question: What is the marking over an I called? Answer: A Tittle
Question: 'At noon and midnight the hour and minute hands are exactly coinciding...' 'How many other times in a day do the hour and minute hands cross?' Answer: 10
Question: Take 1000, and add 40 to it. Now add 30, and another 1000. Now add 20, now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total? Answer: 4100
Initiate of Time whispers, 'Now find which mob correlates with the correct answer. Hail them for what they represent. Say You Are The Answer to them if you think they are correct.
Once you answer the correct question, speak with the Initiate again.
Initiate of Time says, 'Very Good. Now wasn't that fun... Now you must destroy the being beyond me to gain access to the further sectors of this zone.
Initiate of Time whispers, 'Bring me proof of their death to progress.'
He will spawn multiple enemies behind them, each dropping a stone. (Ancient Lore stones of the Present, Past, Future and Ages). Hand these four items in to the Initiate and he will teleport you to the next phase.
Part 3: Gods Among Us
In this next area, you'll find the Warden of Time, and four bosses:
- Tallon Zek
- Terris Thule
- Vallon Zek
Each of these bosses are fairly well doable by a non caster/pet class, though it might take you a few minutes to kill nonetheless (for pet classes this is easy).
If you find yourself having "trouble" with them, you might not be ready (yet) for the next part of the bosses, just so you know.
Each boss drops Guk coins, jewelry, weapons, or Tier 3 Armor MOlds.
After you killed them all, hail the warden again and he will teleport you to the next phase.
Part 4: Second Boss area
In this next area, you'll find 32 trash mobs standing around the table, WITH social aggro, and at reasonably long range. There will also be 4 bosses:
- Cazic Thule
- Rallos Zek
Each of these bosses drop Guk coins, a piece of jewelry, weapons, or Tier 3 Armor Molds.
In the back of the zone is the Warden of Time, if you hail him after killing the bosses he'll teleport you to the next phase.
In this final area, you'll find yourself in Quarm's Lair. In the bag of the room is a Gigantic Egg impatiently quivering.
Break out a gigantic spoon and break the egg. The second you break it, BEHOLD! It's not a cute chicken that pops out, but a three headed dragon!
Kill it, not much else to say :)
Once you killed it, a Projection of the Gods spawns. Hail it and it says :
Well Done <name>. You have bested Quarm, Guardian of the Elements. Projection of the Gods shimmers briefly, as mist emerges from it's body, enveloping you completely. When the mist fades, you notice a small tattoo on your arm.
Quarm drops, if lucky, T3 armor molds, an augment, and silver/copper Metzger coins, and 3x his skull (tradeble), which is needed for IoG2.0
Talk to Metzger in Barren Coast and follow his dialogue starting with the word guild.
There are four different types of coins you can gather:
- Copper Coin of Metzger - 1 coin
- Silver Coin of Metzger - 10 coins
- Gold Coin of Metzger - 100 Coins
- Platinum Coin of Metzger - 1,000 Coins
You will need 2,500 coins for this part, so the best way to obtain these is getting the 2 quests from Diabolik. Finish these and you'll already have 2,000 (2x Platinum Coins) Metzger coins.
After you get these 2 quests, get the Many Raids event from A Raid Leader. That will get you to complete 70-90% of the 2 quests.
Once you manage to get enough coins, go back to Metzger, turn them in, and tell him reward.
Upon doing so he will give you A Fine Latin Tool, which is needed for the final turn in.
Foreign Power Source
The Foreign Power Source is obtained by completing the following:
Go to Dr. Jim in Barren Coast and hand him all 4 items for your Foreign Power Source.
Final Turn In
To receive your armor parts, hail Dr. Jim and he will use the following:
- Your Ancient Frost armor piece
- The corresponding Latin Kings Mold
- A Foreign Power Source
- A Fine Latin Tool
Note: If your item has augments he will return them.
Congratulations on completing the quest line and your new Tier 3 armor.!
