  • After following the path mentioned above up to the J-9 entrance, speak to Sedal-Godjal in Davoi at (J-8) just north of the (J-9) Wall of Banishing.
  • Proceed to and touch the Wall of Banishing to the south at (J-9), then return to him to get the base Key Item, White orb.
  • From there head to and touch the ponds at (H-10), (L-9), (E-8) and (H-6).
  • After obtaining the Crimson orb, return to the Wall of Banishing you were previously at in Davoi, (J-9).
  • Once inside Monastic Cavern, to get to the ??? at (J-6), stick to the west wall to avoid true-sight Notorious Monsters.
    • The Crest is in some weird cave flower looking stalks before the cliff. Do not fall down the cliff.

Quadav Crest

  • Bring some form of Sneak (Invisible is not needed) for this.
  • This prevents The Afflictor from cursing you which inflicts a super gravity effect on you.
  • To reach the Quadav crest, proceed to Beadeaux (K-6) and enter the tunnel. Follow the path to (M-8) and enter Qulun Dome.
  • You are almost there, proceed through the door to the right after zoning. This requires the key items mentioned above.
You should be fine to run past if it is on the far side of the room.
  • Otherwise this NM is level 71-73 and will likely stomp you or take a long time with a party of trusts. So just zone instead.
  • Once inside the main room, hug the south wall to avoid several other true-sound NMs to reach the ??? spot and obtain the crest.
    • Do not drop off the ledge.

  • The Yagudo Crest is located on the 4th floor of Castle Oztroja at H-6.

Note: Lower level players may want to bring and use a Reraise item such as an Instant Reraise icon.png Instant Reraise.

Note: Either you or a player assisting you must possess the Yagudo torch Key Item to progress.

  • To reach the Yagudo crest Key Item, find the 3 passwords throughout the zone and open the 3 password trap door on the fourth floor.
  • The passwords reset when the game day changes so you may want to time your journey accordingly.
  • On the climb you will find 3 of the passwords. You may guess any one of them from the list below.

Floor one:

  • Password #1 is near the entrance in the room at (H-9).
  • Proceed to the Brass Door at (I-8)
  • Pull one of the levers and run back. There is a 50% chance you will trigger a trap door, but you may run away after hitting the handle and not fall.
  • Simply use the other handle after the floor raises back up if need be otherwise proceed.
  • Follow the stairs, at (J-8) you reach the next floor, Map 2.

Floor 2:

  • To get the 2nd password, take a right at the first intersection on map 2 and keep left to reach map 6.
  • Head north to reach map 7 the password is at (H-9).
  • Go back to the first intersection on map 2 and head south to the fork in the path at (H-10) then make a right.
  • Along this path, in a room at (I-10), you will find the pattern of levers needed for opening the upcoming Brass Door on this floor
  • Follow the path to to the password #3 in the room at the north west corner of (I-8)
  • Head to the Brass Door at (G-8)
  • Play with the levers there in different combinations (you may have already seen the correct combination in (I-10)) until the door opens.
  • After this door, monsters will now be more challenging to low level players and then dangerous by the fourth floor.
  • Follow the path to (G-9) and on to the next floor, Map 3.

Floor 3:

  • Follow the one way path of this floor, up the stairs to (H-11), and on to the last floor.
  • The leeches in the pool will aggro sound if you are only running with invisible for the Yagudos. So don't run in the pool.

Floor 4:

  • Once you reach this floor you must open the Brass Door at (H-7) by selecting and lighting one of the torches in the corner rooms at (G-7), (G-8), (H-7), or (H-8).
  • You will likely want Reraise on for this if you are lower level as you will need to run to the Brass Door before it closes.
  • A Thief may simply use Hide to deaggro the Yagudos.
  • Once inside you may safely raise back up if need be.
  • You must input the 3 passwords you collected into the pedestal. If you want to try guessing the passwords then you may guess from this list:
    • The 3 passwords can be entered in any order.
    • You have to use Proper Capitalization and re enter the menu from the beginning each time you fail at guessing.
    • When guessing, the system will tell you immediately when you enter an incorrect clue.
Possible passwords:
Puqu Gadu Deggi Mjuu Haqa VerifiedVerified
Mong Ouzi Duzu Buxu Xicu
Domi Xalmo Quu Misu Duxo Verification Needed
Zhuu Ovzi
  • When you get the password right you will drop down and see a courtyard to the North, the ??? spot is on the first platform.
  • Two true-sight NMs named Yagudo High Priest are in this courtyard. The relevant one for right now usually stands almost exactly on top of the ??? spot.
  • Either be patient and wait for it to move, or deliberately aggro it and have a Trust tank hold it while you click the ??? and Warp afterwards.
  • Speak to Maat once you have all three key items to complete the quest.
