Introduction

The Simplified Questline is a special option for Season Characters that allows you to skip the Balenos, Serendia, Calpheon and Mediah main story quests. Instead of following the story, you will receive new quests that simply require you to reach certain levels (up to level 58). This means you can choose to level via grinding or other methods.

If you do choose to take the Simplified Questline, you will still be able to complete all of your Season Pass objectives, and get all of the rewards from the main story quests, such as Beginner Blackstones, Inventory Slots, and Skill EXP.

After completing the Simplified Questline, you can continue with the other main story quests as normal (Eg. Valencia, Kamaslyvia, O’dyllita, Duvencrune, Everfrost, LoML, etc.)

The Simplified Questline is for veteran players only, who have already completed the Mediah main story questline before. If you are a brand new player, it is recommended to follow the story quests as normal

Simplified Questline Requirements

To unlock the Simplified Questline option, you must have already completed all of the Mediah story questline on another character. The final quest in the Mediah story is called “Apocalyptic Prophecy” and can be found under the “Reliving the Darkness” category in your quest log.

You must also complete the “[Pet] Bareeds’ Junaid” quest which you can obtain from the Prince Bareeds III NPC in Altinova. This quest is one of the 5 free pet quests and is available once per family.

  • You can find the pet quest by pressing [O] to open your quest log, and then going to the Suggested tab.
  • The quest is listed under the category “[ADV Support] Pets, Loyal Companions”.

How to start the Simplified Questline

If you would like to take the Simplified Questline, it is recommended to start in the Ancient Stone Chamber starting zone.

You can still complete the simplified questline if you start in the other zones, but you would need to finish those questlines first as well as your awakening/succession quests.

  • After starting in Ancient Stone Chamber, or returning to the Balenos questline if you selected a different starting zone, follow the Balenos questline as normal.
  • During the Balenos questline, you will defeat the Red Nose boss, then head into Velia.
  • Immediately after arriving in Velia, you will go to speak to Alustin to complete the quest.
  • A pop-up option will appear on your screen where you can choose to either continue with the Balenos questline, or take the Simplified Questline option.

If you choose not to take the Simplified Questline option or select the wrong option, you can forfeit the quest immediately to select the other option.

However, if you handed in the quest already, you still have one more chance to switch after you complete the entire Balenos questline. When you complete the final Balenos Quest, “Embarking on an Adventure” you will go to Heidel Pass Gateway and will have the option to switch to the Simplified questline again.

  • Choose “[Crossroad] Simplified” then speak to Fughar to complete the quest. Once you complete this quest, you cannot return to normal questing.
  • Finally, talk to the Black Spirit to obtain the “[Special Growth] Birth of Prestigious Family“ quest, which is the first quest in the Simplified Questline.
  • You can now find the Simplified Questline in your quest log (O) under the Main tab > “[Special Growth] Taking My Own Path”

MoEW & LoML Starting Zones

If you started in the Mountain of Eternal Winter (Everfrost) or Land of the Morning Light zone, you can still take the Simplified Questline after to skip the Balenos > Mediah quests.

However, you must complete these quests first in the following order:

  1. Complete all of the story questline for your starting zone
    • Starting Zone – Everfrost: Complete the quest “[Everfrost] Beyond the Doors of Alyaelli”
    • Starting Zone – LoML: Complete the quest “[LoML] A Step Further”
  2. Complete your Succession/Awakening questline for your character
  3. Complete the [Skill Preset Coupon] quest from your Black Spirit after finishing your Succession/Awakening quests

Once you have completed all of the requirements, you can accept the quest “In Search of Lost Memories” by speaking to your Black Spirit. This will unlock the Balenos questline, which is unavailable whilst you are doing the Everfrost/LoML questline.

Speak to your Black Spirit again to start the first quest in the Balenos questline and then head to Edan to begin. The process is the same and you will have the option to start the Simplified Questline when you reach Alustin in Velia.

Simplified Questline Objectives and Rewards

The Simplified Questline offers all of the same rewards that you would get by completing the Balenos, Serendia, Calpheon, and Mediah quests.

Each time you reach the level objective, speak to your Black Spirit to complete the quest. There will also be additional chat options and quests from your Black Spirit that will give you other rewards you would normally get by completing the main questline, such as inventory space.
