      END OF STAGE 1

      Observe the Zakum Dungeon (Level 2) 

      Refer to this link


      This is a jump quest. It is very hard and has 2 stages. If you quit or get disconnected while in the jump quest, you have to start from the beginning (You’ll be teleported to the map “The door to Zakum”).
      There is no guide, but here is a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8q10m7voFrg
      P.S The very hard part is at 1 min 04 sec onwards. Try jumping when the ball shoots at you and hold up to be "hit back to the rope", however if you time wrongly you will go straight down. Hurray
      Items gained
      • The Breath of lava and some exp by talking to an npc at the end
      END OF STAGE 2

      Request For a Refinery (Level 3) 


      1. Adobis will now ask you for 30 gold tooths. Get these from hunting the Minor Zombies (the ones with hats) at Dead Mine. Change channel at “the door to zakum” and you’ll end up at “The Passage”. Change channel again and you’ll end up at "Forest of Dead Trees 4". Walk right and go into the hole to hunt. The teeth are yellow in colour by the way, not white.
      2. Head back to Adobis, refine your 3 items from the 3 stages, and you’ll gain 5 eye of fire.
      3. Now you can summon Zakum 5 times.
