To Unfreeze A Princess
The dungeons in the second story phase are scaled so you can do them any time you want, whether immediately after A New Beginning or when you raised your Ash to level 10 and equipped him with the best stuff ArchKnight has to offer so far. I would recommend not starting until you get a light weapon of some kind, it really helps against all the undead. It isn't needed though; it can still be completed without it.
From where you start, go down one screen and left one screen. Talk to Warlic and choose your necromancer!
This is a pretty standard quest. Fans of the original Archknight will notice that Bram can now be harmed by elements other than light alone.
A quest with a random end. Not really many undead to fight, but plenty of Eyeballs and Deadwoods, so bring your Fireball or Hot Wings skill. No new skill after this quest, unfortunately. Has a lot of junk lying around that gives you bonus gold.
A normal quest, although IMO the funniest in the game thus far. There's also a bag of 10 gold coins up for grabs.
After finishing these three quests, talk to Warlic and watch The Unfreezing. Oh no's!
(Trying to)Save the Princess(es)!
Talk to Warlic first to start the next section of AK. We're in unknown territory from here! Go right a few screens to meet someone very familiar... It's your DF Hero!
He/She will supply you with the next quest chain, and will join you as a guest. Be aware that the monsters will scale to the highest level in the part up to level 15.
Note 0: If you teleport home in one of the quests, the hero stays with you a Friend A!
Note 1: The hero will only have skills to use if their base class, Dragon Base Class, Ninja/Pirate Monkey, or DoomKnight is saved. Saved inventory armors, Gnomish Personal SteamTank and (Evolved) ChickenCow Lord will work as well, but that is bug abusing of the Orb of Saving and is not recommended.
Note 3: If your character has the SnuggleBear Helm saved, when you click on it, Ash will gain the SnuggleBear armor! The only redeeming feature of this is that it gives Ash a multi-hit.
These are unneeded if your character has a DA. Don't have Ash use too much mana except on Stabbity.
Warrior: Use stun first, of course, While you're waiting for the stun to wear off, use Wound. When Stun runs out, use Strength Strike.
Rogue: First use Daze. Use Poison while you're waiting for it to wear out. When stuns runs out, use Blind.*
Mage: Sleep is first of course. Use Acid while you're waiting for it to wear off. Then use Blind.*
*Fusing Blind with Ash's Stabbity with result in the mythical -100 Bonus!! Also, when you don't do anything, just do your basic offensive strategy.
ORIGINAL: The Braken Bard
You need to get Ash up to a suitable level first. And get him a good Wind element Weapon.
If you want to do it the easy way, farm for CCA in the Mill Quest. It will take a LOONG time though.
If you want to do it my way, bring Twilly along as well and the best equipment (and Wind Weapon) with you.
There's Talon Magic in Serenity's Inn which I used, but I don't recommend it. It's damage is random and got me into more trouble than it should have.
The Enemies can STUN! Be aware of that. Check the strategies above too.
The Yaga Sisters
A not-so-basic quest. You can skip all the monsters except the Yagas. A Light weapon is VERY useful. Water weapons are also good for slaying Yagas. It also has a potion-making minigame, "Mix it Up!"
Click on the ingredients in the right order...
...and make the cauldron boil!
Be careful! If you click the wrong ingredient, it will RESET the puzzle.
Be fast! You have to find the right combination before the sand fills the hourglass... or else!
Ash vs. the Volcano:
The Wyverns are weakest against Stone, the Swamp Shamblers and OogaBoogas are weakest against Fire, and the Jungle Furies are weakest against Ice and water.
The end is random, so it could take a little while to finish this quest. It also drops the Ooga Booga Helm, the best non-DC helm in ArchKnight. Unfortunately, it is DA-only.
Yet another basic quest with lots of Mario spoofs. The Mushrooms have high defense so using accurate attacks are useful. Afterward you get the Young Hero Armor.
This is the best quest so far in the AK Saga and the best for exp and gold farming!
It loads the Princess as Guest B in addition to your hero!
There is also music so turn on the "Music" in Options.
To finish this quest quickly, go right and up into the cave.
All enemies except the Ice Wisps are weakest against fire. The Wisps are resistant against fire; use light instead.
It has three drops (all DA-only I'm afraid):
- Ice Princess Tear: The only non-rare trinket in AK. Increases enemy weakness to fire. It has a low drop rate though.
- Busted Genji Helm: A decent helmet, but it isn't as good as the Ooga Booga Helm.
- Genji Blade: The most powerful non-DC weapon in AK for now.
ORIGINAL: Baron Dante
If you do the Ice Princess, it let's you keep the Princess as guest B (Hero is Guest A) and then do Memories, you'll have 2 Princesses as your guests. If I recall, it was Veya who found this.
The next chain of quests is on the board of FalconReach, where the Travel button usually is.
Don't You Remember?
Another basic quest with no drops. You will find yourself in a VERY familiar wood. And the skeletons are wielding..., well, I won't spoil the *GASP!'s* so I won't tell you. And the boss is unbeatable, so if you have CCA or ECCA just flee to finish it quickly. And this quest has some creepy music.
ORIGINAL: Baron Dante
And for those "Impossible" fight fans, might want to know how to beat the boss. If you are DA, and Ash has 2200 DC (Might be enough to have that 200 DCs though.), you can get the double Princesses, Braydenball and then Hamster series weapon. The Hamsterweapons have the special on-Attack button to drop the enemy's weakness to ???. Then Braydenball should do, with a bit of luck around 100 damage per turn, and your Hamsterweapon will do that much too.
This requires lvl 15 though.
Yet another basic quest with no drops. Very familiar area, so just do what you did before. This quest also has some music.
Into The Void...
After a de ja vu-esque cutscene, you are in an unfamiliar place for Ash. Here you have to fight some basic enemies. Most enemies can be avoided; the most notable ones to try and avoid however, are the Shadowhounds. They can take a bit out of your MP. After you reach the boss, there's more dialogue and guess what? You must beat the boss in a game? The game's been rigged; you literally can't lose. So when you're done, then complete the quest.
This quest also a weapon drop: Carved Soul. It is nearly, but not as, good as the Genji Blade.
The ArchKnight Finale! It gives you the Knight Lite Class Armor (lol) and a TEMPORARY Blade of Destiny. This is obviously the most epic quest in the ArchKnight Saga. Make sure you check out Ash's ArchKnight Final Attack! It is the most AWESOME ATTACK EVA'!!!!! Make sure you don't just do your basic attack strategy, since you will need to do a few defensive moves to complete this quest.
PS: Make sure you check out Ghost's music in the background!
PPS: Check out the "egg" chest in the scene where Ash is very red, for reasons you will found out. A chest will appear in the top-right corner of the screen when you drag your mouse over it. It is so, FEAKIN- FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the end, my friend, the end of the ArchKnight Saga... And to end it, we get the Blade of Destiny for our main character!!! In normal FalconReach, talk to Ash, click ArchKnight, and Rewards! The level 50 Blade of Destiny is yours, for all players, DragonLords and Guardians!!
Doesn't understand boys!
It's all about Ash
Ash, Ash, Ash! BOYS!
You know what I don't get? Boys!
You have a perfectly nice, normal, NOT FIRE BREATHING, OR FROGGY, OR ICY girl and do you even look at her a second time? No! Instead you focus on a girl whose name you don't even know, completely ignoring the girl you've known for YEARS, who has always liked you.
But do you ever talk to her? No! Instead, you ask Dragonlords and Guardians to help you rescue all these Princesses! Princesses that didn't even care about you, who prefer a smelly furball of a moglin!
And now this is the end of the story? And I never got to kiss- I mean, never got to be properly recognized by Ash? I mean, by boys? I mean, oh, I don't know WHAT I mean. Animals are SO much easier! /huff
