None Simultaneously activated:
Ability to become a Dark Knight.


  • Speak with Gumbah. Then speak to him again for a cutscene that begins the quest.
  • Travel to Palborough Mines and go to the top floor.
  • Go to the boat docks (H-8) and take the boat back to Zeruhn Mines.
  • At the end of the cutscene, you will obtain the Chaosbringer greatsword.
  • You must now slay 100 monsters with the sword equipped in order to activate its potential.
  • This portion is easy if you have WAR or RUN leveled and Great Sword skilled.
  • If you do not have WAR leveled, you might as well level it up now!
  • If you do not have Great Sword skilled, proceed to the starter mobs outside of gate, they should die in one or two hits as well skill you up.
  • Do not use Weapon Skills for the kill shot, it won't count towards the 100 kills.
  • The only kills that count are normal kill hits from the sword.
  • The sword has a 'memory' of how many it has slain, so you do not need to worry about zoning out, logging out, etc. There is also no time limit.
  • You have to keep track of the number of kills yourself as there is no indicator on the sword. Or you could just go on a killing or farming rampage and before you know it, voila you have met the requirements.
  • Upon the completion of the mass slaying, proceed to Beadeaux. Zone in for a cutscene to complete the quest.
