or... Shapeshifter's Anonymous!

Location: Travel Map » Sail East » Shapeshifter Training

«Notes»
  • Dates mentioned below are based on initial release dates of the respective missions.
  • All quests are rotated so that you will encounter a different one daily in order of their release sequence.
  • If you paid Z-Tokens for any class and log out before finishing the class, you must pay Z-Tokens to enroll in that class again.
  • As mentioned by Gnuvain below, if you paid Z-Tokens for any class but flee or die in the process, you can return to him and repeat the same class (at no cost), or choose a normal class (losing your Z-Token payment).

  • The sequence is as follows:
    Water » Wind » Ice » Earth »
    Energy » Light » Darkness » Fire »
    Repeat from Water


    «Scene: Gnuvain's Keep»

    «You»: Hello there! Your place looks like a mess.
    Gnuvain: Why, thank you for the kind greeting. Welcome to my humble abode....
    «You»: Sorry for being so direct.
    Gnuvain: Are you going to tell me how stupid my hair looks now?
    «You»: Is that a rhetorical question?
    Gnuvain: So, what'd you come here for?
  • Shapeshifter Training!

      «07 February 2015»
      Gnuvain: Today we'll be studying Water creatures!
      Gnuvain: Our normal class is on the Pheron - an elemental made of the purest water!
      «You»: That doesn't sound too tough.
      Gnuvain: If you want something tougher, then my second lesson for high-level Guardians is on the Sea Squirt - a demon with a powerful spiritual shield!

      «08 February 2015»
      Gnuvain: Today we'll be studying Wind creatures!
      Gnuvain: Our normal class is on the Gnat - the most annoying. Insect. Ever!
      «You»: By the gods, not one of those! Don't you have something less annoying?
      Gnuvain: Well, there's always my second lesson for high-level Guardians. Today we're looking at Cyclone Wyverns - dragonkin whose strength really blows you away!

      «09 February 2015»
      Gnuvain: Today we'll be studying Ice creatures!
      Gnuvain: Our normal class is on the Two-Bear - a ferocious arctic animal whose bite is worse than its... uh... growl? Okay, never mind.
      «You»: ... Okay, next time try something like "In this case, two heads are worse than one FOR YOU!"
      Gnuvain: Look, if you don't like my fails, then maybe you should try my second lesson for high-level Guardians? It's on Goggs - horrible creatures with lightning-fast reflexes.

      «10 February 2015»
      Gnuvain: Today we'll be studying Earth creatures!
      Gnuvain: Our normal class is on the Frogzard - a "wily li'l beaut", as the Frogzard Hunter would put it.
      «You»: Oh, I've wrangled a few of those before. They're not too tough.
      Gnuvain: If that's not tough enough, then my second lesson for high-level Guardians is on the Stone Golem - a massive monolith of animated rock!

      «11 February 2015»
      Gnuvain: Today we'll be studying Energy creatures!
      Gnuvain: Our normal class is on the Trobble - a shockingly adorable ball of fur and cute!
      «You»: But they're too cute! What, you expect me to d'aww my enemies to death in that form?
      Gnuvain: You could always go for my second lesson for high-level Guardians. Today I'm teaching about Baby Sacragons - cute and ugly creatures with mental powers.

      «12 February 2015»
      Gnuvain: Today we'll be studying Light creatures!
      Gnuvain: Our normal class is on the Raydius Dragon - a lesser dragon that's still a fierce fight!
      «You»: A "lesser dragon"? Doesn't sound that impressive.
      Gnuvain: If you want more of a challenge, then my second lesson for high-level Guardians is on Lightbringers - servants of the Light Lord herself!

      «13 February 2015»
      Gnuvain: Today we'll be studying Darkness creatures!
      Gnuvain: Our normal class is on the Banshee - a dead soul that's very vocal about its dislike for the living.
      «You»: Pfft, I'll just bring earplugs, no problem.
      Gnuvain: Earplugs won't help, but if you want more of a challenge, the high-level Guardian lesson is on Brain Spiders - undead insects that like brains more than zombies!

      «14 February 2015»
      Gnuvain: Today we'll be studying Fire creatures!
      Gnuvain: Our normal class is on the wily and fiery Firezard - a dangerous lizard with a red-hot breath weapon!
      «You»: Oh, I've wrangled a few of those before. They're not too tough.
      Gnuvain: If that's not tough enough, then my second lesson for high-level Guardians is on the Pzycho Fiend - powerful Fire demons from Heck!
      Gnuvain: I'll point you to an area where you can find the creatures, but be careful of the other wildlife there.
      Gnuvain: So, what's it gonna be?

      «At this point, you're given three options as follows:»
    • «Regular Pool Monster»
    • «Guardian Pool Monster»

        «By selecting one of these two options, you proceed to the following battles.»

        7 BATTLES (All elements except Water) / 6 BATTLES (Water)
        Full Heal after battles #2, #4, #6

        1 BATTLE: «Regular / Guardian Pool Monster»
        Fire: Firezard / Pzycho Fiend
        Water: Pheron / Sea Squirt
        Wind: Gnat / Cyclone Wyvern
        Ice: Two-Bear / Gogg
        Earth: Frogzard / Stone Golem
        Energy: Trobble / Baby Sacragon
        Light: Raydius Dragon / Lightbringer
        Darkness: Banshee / Brain Spider

        Full Heal

        Gnuvain: You're back! Did you find the creature you were looking for?
        «You»: Yup!
        Gnuvain: Great! Class starts now!

        «The Shapeshift shop of the monster you chose to hunt opens. Once you leave the shop:»
      • Play again!
      • Guardian Tower!
      • Leave

    • Can I go after something else?

        Gnuvain: Well, if you give me some Z-Tokens, I might be willing to go off-schedule and give you some private lessons...
        Gnuvain: You'll have your choice of elements to go after for only 250 Z-Tokens. How about it?
      • Okay, let me pick! (Costs 250 Z-Tokens) - If you do not have enough tokens: "Not enough Tokens!"

          Gnuvain: Alright then, which element?

          Notes:
        • You will immediately start questing for the monster.
        • If you die/flee, then you can return here to start the quest again.
        • No refunds!

        • Fire
        • Water
        • Wind
        • Ice
        • Earth
        • Energy
        • Light
        • Darkness

            «If you select the same element as the one being taught for the day, you get the message 'That's already today's challenge! Pick another.'. Otherwise, you get the following dialogue:»

            Gnuvain: I'll teach you how to change into a «Regular Pool Monster» or, if you're a high-level Guardian, you can choose a «Guardian Pool Monster». Either way, it's 250 Z-Tokens.
          • «Regular Pool Monster»
          • «Guardian Pool Monster» - If you are below level 105 or not a Guardian: "This class is only available for high-level Guardians!"
          • Actually, never mind.

            «Regular / Guardian Pool Monster»
            Fire: Firezard / Pzycho Fiend
            Water: Pheron / Sea Squirt
            Wind: Gnat / Cyclone Wyvern
            Ice: Two-Bear / Gogg
            Earth: Frogzard / Stone Golem
            Energy: Trobble / Baby Sacragon
            Light: Raydius Dragon / Lightbringer
            Darkness: Banshee / Brain Spider

            «Upon selecting a class, the message "Successfully spent 250 Z-Tokens" appears along with the following dialogue:»

            Gnuvain: Payment received! Go out there and bring me back that «Regular / Guardian Pool Monster», and we'll begin!
          • Hunt! - Same battles as above

              «If you fled/died during the hunt and return to the quest after that...»

              Gnuvain: You're back! Did you find me a «Regular / Guardian Pool Monster»?
              «You»: No, there were a few... problems.
              Gnuvain: Dang. Do you want to try finding a «Regular / Guardian Pool Monster» again, or do you want to just attend my normal lessons? Remember, no refunds.
            • Find a «Regular / Guardian Pool Monster»
            • Normal Lessons
            • Back to Town
              «If you cleared all battles and found the monster you chose to hunt:»

              Gnuvain: You're back! Did you find the creature you were looking for?
              «You»: Yup!
              Gnuvain: Great! Class starts now!

              «The Shapeshift shop of the monster you chose to hunt opens. Once you leave the shop:»
            • Play again!
            • Guardian Tower!
            • Leave

        • Actually, never mind...

      • Uh, never mind....

  • How does this work?
      Gnuvain: I suppose you have come to see me to learn about shapeshifting. That IS what I am known for, anyway.
      «You»: Do you still randomly find adventurers and offer to turn them into different forms?
      Gnuvain: I do. But that is just me showing off. I won't teach you how to change OTHER people. Just how to change yourself.
      «You»: Why the big mess in here??
      Gnuvain: I regularly bring many different creatures-- you might call them "monsters"-- here to study. To be a convincing shapeshifter one must know biology very, VERY well.
      Gnuvain: Mistakes in shapeshifting can lead to some embarrassing moments. Or some terrible blunders.
      Gnuvain: I mys-- um-- I know a shapeshifter who is responsible for the creation of no less than a dozen new species.
      «You»: So how do I get started?
      Gnuvain: Well, I hold classes daily - one creature a day. Plus, the Guardian Tower is paying me to hold a second daily class for their more powerful Guardians.
      Gnuvain: If you don't like the lessons I'm teaching today, then you can come back tomorrow and I'll have different ones available.
      Gnuvain: For each class, we'll be studying one specific creature. You'll need to go out and bring me one of those creatures. Simple enough?
      «You»: And then you'll teach me how to shapeshift into it?
      Gnuvain: Bingo.

    Learn the art of Shapeshifting from the master himself, Gnuvain! Unlock 11 forms as you level up, including Frogzard, Two-Bear, Calladus and even Gogg forms!




    You: Hello there! Your place looks like a mess.
    Gnuvain: Why, thank you for the kind greeting. Welcome to my humble abode...
    You: Sorry for being so direct.
    Gnuvain: Are you going to tell me how stupid my hair looks now?
    You: Is that a rhetorical question?
    Gnuvain: I suppose you have come to see me to learn about shapeshifting. That IS what I am known for, anyway.
    You: Do you still randomly find adventurers and offer to turn them into different forms?
    Gnuvain: I do. But that is just me showing off. I won't teach you how to change OTHER people. Just how to change yourself.
    You: Why the big mess in here??
    Gnuvain: I regulary bring many creatures-- you might call them "monsters"-- here to study. To be a convincing shapeshifter one mus know biology very, VERY well.
    Gnuvain: Mistakes in Shapeshifting can lead to some embarassing moments. Or some terrible blunders.
    Gnuvain: I mys-- um-- I know a shapeshifter who is responsible for the creation of no less than a dozen new species.
    You: So how do I get started?
    Gnuvain: First you must learn the Shapeshift spell. Then you must go on missions to examine creatures before you can become them.

    Choice:
  • Buy Spell! - Opens a shop where you can buy Shapeshift.
  • Skip (I alraedy have the spell) - continues the quest.

    Gnuvain: You are ready to quest! I have selected 11 creatures that are important for shapeshifters to learn.
    Gnuvain: You can quest for, and unlock, a new form every 5 to 10 levels.
    Gnuvain: The 11 forms are Frogzard, Firezard, Sea Squirt, Rock Golem, Two-Bear, Raydius Dragon, Trobble, Sun-Eater, Calladus, Pzycho Fiend, and Gogg!
    Gnuvain: After you unlock one form, your Shapeshift spell will allow you to choose that form. The next time you return to me, you will start questing to unlock the next form. Good luck!
