Free Blessing Potions (Momotaro, Kaguyahime)
When you are not item malling you may feel a bit weak sometimes. Especially in TBS missions. Your mercenary who wields a pretty, shiny gun simply does not hit as hard as your companion with whom you duo the mission. There are two solutions for that:
1) Solo. Then you don’t have the other guy to compare your performance with.
2) Do the Momotaro/Kaguyahime quest.
Of course you could do both…
Here is a short overview for both quests:
|Quest giving NPC||Momotaro (near Kyoto)|
|Items to bring||Blue Quill, some spirit gear|
|Boss Fights||3 (Onihime, Flame Goblin, Obake)|
|Looting quest items||1|
|Total quest steps||18|
|Total xp||0.64 M|
|Total gold||1.07 M|
|Items rewarded||1 mini blessing potion (20 helpings), 10 enchant stones III, 10 enhance stones III, crappy summons|
|Cost of Quest Crafts||—|
|Cost of items to bring||<100,000|
|Cost of reset license||about 1.5 M|
|Quest giving NPC||Kaguyahime (near Kyoto)|
|Items to bring||1 Amon’s Cannon|
|Quest Crafts||Heart Of Darkness x 10|
|Answers||Bamboo, Black Keep Basement|
|Boss Fights||3 (Southern Gorilla, Onihime, Obake)|
|Looting quest items||3|
|Treasure Map steps||1|
|Share info steps||1 (3x sharing)|
|Total quest steps||20|
|Total xp||0.84 M|
|Total gold||0.84 M|
|Items rewarded||Sealed Casket: Cannoneer (=10 secret vials of potential I)|
|Cost of Quest Crafts||2 M|
|Cost of items to bring||1 M|
|Cost of reset license||about 3 M|
You can do both quests at the same time. The Kaguyahime quest is longer and more tedious (treasure map, sharing infos, 3 quest loot steps). They are both surprisingly rewarding: You get 18 gulps of blessing potion out of Momotaro (you use 2 for the quest) and 10 secret vials of potential from Kaguyahime. You pay about 8 to 9 M for doing both quests. But the reward is really worth it.
As non-Item Mall player you would do especially the Momotaro quest time and time again. Fortunately it is resettable: buy or craft a license “Secrets Of Time: Momotaro” and reset the quest at the wandering NPC Hui Chao (possible once a day). And even more fortunately the quest is quite easy and not too outdrawn. My alt (Fritz) could do it in level 85 pretty easily.
Personally Fritz does Momotaro regularly and Kaguyahime only to a point: when the quest looting isn’t finished but the related Momotaro quest step is, Fritz goes on with Momotaro and takes up with Kaguyahime’s quest during the next time he does Momotaro.
It is ideal to get the blessing for your TBS missions. Don’t forget to switch them off after each mission (MyInfo – Character – Effects). You don’t want to waste the blessing potion’s gulps during normal farming.
A personal note: I know that is old news for high level players. But I discovered to my horror that even level 120 players in my nation did not know about it, so I finally overcame my hesitation to write about this quest.
