Walkthrough

After Talking to starter, recall to Linvak Tukal and go to the first Thusik Rigway at (3.1S, 18.9W) and look for a Scholar's Corpse East of those coords. The Fellow leader must loot the body for a:

  • Iconlargechestkey.jpg Large Chest Key.

Once you have the key travel to Exothen's Encampment located at (3.1S, 18.9W) and use the key on the Large Chest.
The leader can use the key to open the chest and loot:

  • Icongeomantictheodolite.jpg Geomantic Theodolite
  • Iconexothensnotebook.jpg Exothen's Notebook.

Now the leader must use the theodolite like a reckoning gem to guide you to the beacon location.
When he arrives at the spot it will spawn the beacon (called Portal Transit).
Now all fellow must Protect the Portal Transit from Gruesome Vermin, Abysmal Armoredillo and Shreths. After a aprox. 3 minutes the transit beacon will spawn the portal to the Dungeon. Enter the portal and get the Cacophos quest.

Inside this Dungeon head South-SouthEast until you can't progress more South and then head East until you find the dungeon boss: The Nexi Lv 63 Group with 150k HP.

All fellow can help killing The Nexi and when it dies, a new portal will open to Cacophos Island. Everyone must use the portal to advance the quest and travel to Cacophos beach.
Now everyone must work your way to the top of the mountain. Just be careful with the doppelgangers in the way, since they hit very hard.
Once at the top, there is a small opening into the side of the mountain

Enter the opening and inside its the portal into the Heart of the Cacophos Dungeon.

This is a big dungeon that goes down in a "spiral" like path, with some "rooms" on the sides and full with doppelgangers. In these rooms there is always a small door and some of them will have a Icondethseloiseal.jpg Seal in the ground. There are 6 different seals available and everyone of these seals will weaken the Beast of Cacophos (final boss). So the more you get the easier the fight will be.
If your fellow is not very strong, try to get at least 4 or 5. If you have multiple fellows you can go with 0-2. Once you gathered the number of seals you decided make your way down until you find a central path with a small bridge and a portal called "The Edge".
Everyone get inside and about 30 secs after the first one crossed the portal the final boss and the protecting stones will appear.
You can now use the seals on the protecting stones on the outer rim of the platform, simply double click the seal and use it on the correspondingly named stone, to weaken the The Beast of the Cacophos Lv 70 Group Spawn with 375k HP and some nasty attacks.

Once the Beast is defeated a portal will appear and the Dungeon will start to colapse, so everyone must take the portal and the quest will advance.
The Portal will bring everyone back to Exothen's Encampment and from there all can return to Theoter (sugestion: use hero shrine nexus).
Talk to Theoter to end Cacophos quest and get your XP and these items:

These chests have random loot and at least 1 random Insight Jewel from the list bellow.

Note: The Fate of Scholars quest will only end for the person using the Theodolite, but gives no XP or extra rewards. Everyone not using the Theodolite will end Cacophos and fail this quest.
