So let's Start from beginning :
When you make your beautiful char from your dreams, you should level it to lvl 15 first, and make quest for wolf - it should be a must im my opinion and stricted rule. Wolfs later are very important for effective farm or doing RB's, even in pvp it's a strenght that shouldn't be ignored. I won't describe this quest step by step, because I guess most of you know and already did it before, but just in case - >here you've got link to tutorial for it<. (since almost in every chronicle questions at the end of this quest are changing, then you might have problems with it, I just suggest a Uncle Google then to ask for advice Razz)

Next step is just leveling to ~24 level (in case of mystic class - 25). At this level we're gonna make Kamaloka. It's some kind of "mini-RB" in some lol dimension that u can kill every 9 (I'm not sure if exactly this amount) hours. A bit problem appears here for nukers... I've already tried to do it with a nuker, it's quite ineffective there, but I guess there's a solution for that - after getting first class done, nuker can summon a servitor, so it's the only way to do this quest by nuker in my opinion. Anyway, to do Kamaloka you're gonna need party made of 2-3 people. Amount of people depends on your gear, with top D grade gear (especially weapon) you can do this quite easily in duo (if at least one of chars in party is DD class), otherwise you'll need to get more people (3-4). If you're gonna get buffed before entering to kamaloka, they'll disappear right with the moment of entering there - exception here are newbie buffs from newbie guide (you can use them on levels 6 - 63) - so buffer is not needed there. Of course don't forget inside to summon your wolf, it gets exp also Smile
Anywaaaay... how to get into Kamaloka: go to gludio and meet Captain Bathis in the center of the town, then party leader has to talk with him. Few screenshots:

Why level 26 not 24? Boss on 24 lvl gives less experience and has quite strong and annoying stun, so it's even easier (especially for my low-con chars QQ).
On x30 server after getting Kamaloka done, I was jumping with my level from 24 to ~40 up, and my wolf from 3x lvl to ~55 Smile On x5 effect will be probably much less, but still it's better than grinding mobs (with full vitality effect it's a lot better).

Unfortunately now it's time for get experience in normal, old way style - boooooooooring killing mobs (don't forget about few cups of coffee -.-). We're doing it until our char gets at least 36. Honestly I don't know how first pailaka goes on 36 lvl, because i've always had at least 40 lvl before makin it and 2nd class done, so I won't recommend you here what level you should have for it Razz The point is to do it between levels 36 and 42 Smile >Here you have link for tutorial to this quest<.
Now about my person experiences with it. For any DD/TANK class it's a piece of cake - you shouldn't have any problems with it. Nuker might have problem here without any wolf, but still he can use his summon that should be still effective here. The only problem might be with support classes... I did this quest with buffer but I've had great wolf to my disposition and it was very easy then. They can't get any help from anyone since this quest might be done only by 1 person. But I'm hoping you're gonna do it somehow anyway, GL with that Razz To any non-support class - don't forget to take buffs from newbie guide Razz

After finishing pailaka again we have to level in normal, old way style - boooooooooooooooooooooooo-ooooo-ooo-ooring killing mobs QQ And we do that until we get... 61 lvl. This pailaka is quite easy, becouse you get A grade sword (you can use it only in pailaka dimension Razz), that allows you to summon Tigress (looks like cougar, patk similar to great wolf's). The only problem is with last boss... you need to do nice damage on him because he has minions that recover his hp every few seconds ; x >Here you have link for tutorial to this quest<.
Again I'm going to tell about my experience with this quest. For tanks this quest is damn easy. Light armored DD sometimes might get some problems, but not big, well played won't die even for 1 time Razz Buffer goes quite well there, since he can buff up his summon, so it's much more effective. Nuker might have the biggest problems, but still he has summon from sword (from 1st class summon won't be effective anymore XD). Don't forget to take buffs from newbie guide before coming in there Smile
PS. When you fight with last boss, focus only on it, killing minions is pointless Smile

And here we go again with old way boring style to lvl up xD This time before doing last pailaka you need to have 73 level at least. Like in every pailaka, you get special weapon with some skills (this time some spear, i didn't use it even once). >Here you have link for tutorial for this quest<.
It's really hard quest, surely you're gonna die through doing it for several times. I recommend u to do it after getting 74 level, obviously because of new skills. Also you should have already nicely leveled great wolf/fenrir (if you don't, try to borrow some from mate etc, because it's really hard to make it without summon). Don't forget to buff yourself before coming in there, if you're a buffer you can buff yourself of course anytime, but any non-buffer class has to ask some buffer for help Razz You'll meet inside of there some "walls" of mobs... They're very strong with nukes that make quite huge damage. If you have high level fenrir already, I found out that they do almost nothing to him, so then send on them just fenrir while you keep safe distance from them. DON'T GO BEHIND THE MOBS BECAUSE YOU'RE GONNA BE SPAWNED BACK IN FRONT OF THEM, AND THERE WILL APPEAR MORE AND STRONGER MOBS. When you'll get done with them, then you meet last boss Razz It has huge dmg (there is nice trick to help yourself with killing it - when you notice him, he's sleeping, and when you come enought close, then triggers up a little intro movie where he wakes up, in this case try to come to him slowly and spam with summon's attack, then summon's gonna hit boss during this little movie and when it's done, mob will have a bit hp down). If you have any skill that might stun him - do it, land rate is quite well and you'll evade any damage from him. After killing it pailaka is done.

Quest: Pailaka

The Pailaka quests is a series of 3 solo 1-time quests. Pailaka itself is some sort of parallel world, that can be entered at different locations.

General Rule for all 3 Pailaka: make sure to upgrade the Quest Weapon before killing the Final Boss. You don’t have to use the Quest Weapon to kill mobs nore the Bosses.

Thanks to AshleyHunter from Aria and Aelaren from Franz for providing additonal infos.

Pailaka – Song of Ice and Fire

Level: 36~42 (characters above lvl 42 can not take this quest)
NPC: Inspector Adler, near the entrance to The Einhasad Temple in Gludin
Type: 1-time / Solo
Time Limit: 60 mins
Pailaka Earring – D-Grade. 43 MDef. MaxMP +20. Cannot be dropped, traded or enchanted.
Pailaka Ring – D-Grade. 29 MDef. MaxMP +15. Cannot be dropped, traded or enchanted.
810.000 XP, 50.000 SP, Vitality Points

Inspector Adler sends you to the Pailaka inside the Forgotten Temple.

The Temple Inspector Sinai at the Forgotten Temple lobby will give you special D-Duals (Sprite’s Sword). You can use them but dont have too. You also get the Temple Book of Secrets. It will be updated with additional informations and hints while you progress with the quest.
Inside a Pailaka you must defeat various Mini-Boss mobs and one Final Boss. While fighting your way thru Pailaka you will find Crystal Water Bottles and Burning Braziers. Destroy these to obtain various instance Pots (Healing Pots, Element Potions, …) These Potions and the Weapon itself can only be used inside the Pailaka. So a good advice is to collect as much potions as possible before facing one of the Mini-Bosses.

Killing Hillas will get you Essence of Water. Speak with a Temple Inspector to refine the special Pailaka Weapon into Enhances Sprite’s Sword. Essence of Water gets you Item Skill Shalin Heal.
Once you killed Kinsus you obtain Essence of Fire. Wich gets you Shalin Strike, after refining your weapon into Sword of Ice and Fire thru a Temple Inspector.
The other 2 Mini-Bosses to kill are Papion, another Spirit of Water, and Gargos, a Fire Spirit. Deafeating them will update your Temple Book of Secrets.

Once all 4 Bosses are down and you have refined the D-Duals into the Sword of Ice and Fire its time to face the Final Enemy. Adiantum can be found behind a secret underwater passage at the bridge where the 2 elements (Fire and Water) collide, aka the place where you killed Papion.

After killing Adiantum Inspector Adler gonna show up and hand over the rewards. Only thing left todo now is to SOE.

Hint: If you need restock or rebuff you can leave (via SOE) and re-enter (via Inspector Adler in Gludin) the Pailaka at any time.

Pailaka – Devil’s Legacy

Level: 61~67 (characters above lvl 67 can not take this quest)
NPC: Devil’s Isle Survivor, North of The Einhasad Temple in Giran
Type: 1-time / Solo
Time Limit: 90 mins
Pailaka Bracelet – B-Grade. MaxMP +20. 2 talisman slots. Cannot be dropped, traded or enchanted.
10.800.000 XP, 950.000 SP, Vitality Points

Devil’s Isle Survivor sends you to the pailaka on Devils Island.
A good advice to follow is to only enter Pailaka well prepared. This includes being well buffed and bringing a lot of Antidotes, Greater Healing Potions, Scrolls of Escape and Pet Shots.

At the entrance to Devil’s Isle awaits you NPC Devil’s Isle Supporter. He gives you Ancient Legacy Sword, wich comes with the weapon Skill Summon Tigress. You can summon Tigress and use her like a normal Summon. She uses 4 pet shots per hit and has a special attack skill.
This wouldn’t be a NCSoft quest if there wouldn’t be at least one bug. Unlike other summons Tigress comes without an attack button, even without any character window at all.
So if you are a summoner you might have the summon attack skill already in your hotbar. If you are not a summoner make yourself a macro with the command “/summonattack” and place it in your hotbar.
If you want tigress to attack your target just trigger the macro. All summoner skills work on her as well.

Make sure to destroy ALL Treasure Boxes you find to obtain additional Potions. If you going to need these in any of the 3 Pailaka instances badlym than its this one.
Spare the Pailaka Antidotes for the Final-Boss Lematan.

Some additional hints to make your life easier:

Some of the Treasure Boxes drop Pailaka All-Purpose Keys that can be used on targetable doors inside Devil’s Isle by double-clicking. You will find additonal Boxes behind those doors.
On your way through Devil’s Island you will come across Powder Kegs. Attacking those will make them explode. They will damage any mob within range and also yourself and Tigress.
So a good way to use the Kegs to your advantage without hurting yourself is to use any sort of ranged attack on them. If your class dont have any offensive ranged attack you can simply use the Legacy Sword’s nuke – found in the skill list when the Sword is equiped and at least enchanted to stage 1.
Make sure to use the Divine Soul Bottles, wich also can be found inisde the Treasure Boxes. The Bottles give you Resist Undead , wich also stacks with other buffs.
The 1st Mini-Boss you gonna run into is Kams. He might poison you, so be prepared to use some antidotes.
Once defeated you will obtain Pailaka Scroll of Enchant Weapon. Bring it to a Dwarf Adventurer who will refine your the Ancient Legacy Sword into an Enhanced Ancient Legacy Sword.
Tigress power will improve and you get a new weapon skill – Ice Chill, a water element nuke. Make sure to unsummon Tigress, or he won’t enhance it for you.

The 2nd Boss to kill is Hikoro. He might poison and bleed you.
He wont drop an Enchant Scroll, but needs tobe killed anyway.

The next Boss you gonna meet, while making your way to the upper floor on Devil’s Isle is Alkaso. His skills might cause you bleeding.
When he is dead meet up with the next Dwarf Adventurer to get the Ancient Sword refined with the Pailaka Scroll of Enchant Weapon you just got.
You now have the Complete Ancient Legacy Sword. Make sure to unsummon the Tigress before enchanting.
Tigress has improved again and you got a new weapon skill – Chill Strike.

The last of the Mini-Bosses before fighting the Final one is Gerbera.
Once dead you gonna find yourself close to Zaken’s ship deep inside Devil’s Isle.

Before facing the Final Boss Lematan you should fully regen your MP and if needed, resummon Tigress.
When you’re ready, jump down into the water and find the underwater passage leading to Zaken’s ship.

Fighting Lematan won’t be that easy, like the other 2 Pailaka Bosses.
He will teleport himself and you to the center ship once he has only half HP left. There he gonna spawn his minions, Lemetan’s Followers. They will heal him and also use some sort of binding spell on him. So he can’t move while the Followers are binding him, but also geting healed.

There are 3 different ways how to deal with that situation:

Let Tigress kill the Followers, while you focus on Lematan. Note, the Followers will respawn.
Try to lure Lematan away from the Followers, to one of the bridges. There the Followers can not reach him. This one is abit tricky, couse the Followeres might pull him back to the ship.
If you have any sort of a binding skill (Anchor, Root, Shackle, …) you can prevent Lematan from porting to the ship. So no Followeres to deal with.
Downside of the last 2 solutions is, once Lematan is dead the Dwarf Adventurer will spawn on the ship and you need to find a way to get there as well.
The Dwarf Adventurer will take back the Ancient Sword and hand over the rewards.

Pailaka – Injured Dragon

Level: 73~77 (characters above lvl 77 can not take this quest)
NPC: Ketra Orc Shaman, outside Goddard West Gate
Type: 1-time / Solo
Time Limit: 90 mins
Pailaka Shirt – A-Grade. 28 PDef, MaxMP +40. Cannot be dropped, traded or enchanted.
28.000.000 XP, 2.850.000 SP, Vitality Points

Ketra Orc Shaman sends you to the Pailaka at the Varka Silenos Stronghold. Please note that this quest will not affect your alliance with the Varka Silenos nore the Ketra Orcs.

At the entrance to the Varka Silenos Stronghold NPC Ketra Orc Supporter awaits you and gives you the Spear of Silenos. The weapons special skill Obliteration Storm must unlocked to defeat Latana, the Dragon of Fire.

Hunting Silenos will get you the needed scrolls (Weapon Upgrade Stage 1 & 2) to enhance the Spear into Enhanced Spear of Silenos. Speak to a Ketra Orc Intelligence Officer to refine the Spear of Silenos. The first weapon skill you will get is Critical Up, wich increases the Critical rate and Attack Speed. Once you obtained the 2nd Weapon Upgrade Stage let a Ketra Orc Intelligence Officer refine the Spear into Complete Silenos Spear. The weapon skill Obliteration Storm has a chance to stun your target.
Killing mobs inside the Pailaka will get you various Potions that should help fighting Latana.
The various Ketra Orc NPCs can also give you buffs.

Facing Latana should be done well buffed and prepared, having enough Healing Potions, etc. … Latana has 3 different skills he can use. A general, not fixed on a special target fire nuke. This one can easily be avoided by just moving aside. 2nd one is a stun attack and the 3rd being an AOE fire nuke.

After killing the Dragon of Fire the Ketra Orc Supporter will appear, taking back the Silnos Spear and rewarding you for defeating Latana.
