Chapter 2: The Chase! Banthus!

Chapter 2

Chief Hagus has suggested that Elsword and his party seek Hoffman from Elder Village. Both Hoffman and Lenphad have informed the El Search Party that Banthus is hiding out in a cave. They started to chase Banthus again but failed to catch him. On the way, they found a letter written by Lord Wally of Elder. The letter states that Wally commanded Banthus to steal the El. This leaves our heroes no choice but to turn to Luichel, the former thief, for help to get into Wally's Kingdom.

There has been an increase in bandits that go after traveling merchants.

Quest Acceptance Dialogue
  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: As you know Elder is a town of merchants and to us trust is one of the most important things.
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: What? I have to get this stupid trust thing still?
  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: Not at all. Because you helped us while the town was in dire need of help keeping the town in check, you have gained the merchants' trust.

  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: You have helped us all you can, now it is our turn to return the favor and locate Banthus. Recently there has been increased activity and ferocity from the forest spirits and causing trouble with the villagers.

  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: Arg...Stop giving me tedious work...
  • Story Quest Icon - Aisha.png Aisha: Sigh.. Typical merchants.
Quest Completion Dialogue
  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: Enraged Forest Spirit and Ent attacked people and dark being are roaming around? That's very strange... It's too weird to only blame it on the disappearance of the El Shard...but.. This sounds like the Great Monster Outbreak that had happened to the Black Forest long ago.

  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: You said you saw many Dark Wizards inside Dark Forest? They say those being only show up when the Forest is surrounded in dark energy. Rumor has it that it might be related to this strange place called the Demon World...
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: Demon World? What's that?
  • Story Quest Icon - Aisha.png Aisha: Ha.. Do I have to explain everything?
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: My Elder You've only been born a few months early!
  • Story Quest Icon - Rena.png Rena: A great threat... Then what the elder was saying...
  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: I'm sure it was the Dark Wizards spreading those nasty dark energies to the Fairies and the Ents. We have to rid of them.
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: Right, leave it to me!

  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: You've dealt with them? Thank you.
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: I won't stand by while you destroy the forest!
  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: We are not sure how far spread the Dark Energies are , we should observe first.

  • Story Quest Icon - Rena.png Rena: Such a lovely town, if only I had the time to go shopping..
  • Story Quest Icon - Aisha.png Aisha: Stop! Say that again, Lightning bolt!
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: WHAT!! I called her little because she was little!
  • Story Quest Icon - Rena.png Rena: If I had a little bit more time..
  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: Oh, Luichel has found information on Banthus. I'm glad we could help.
  • Story Quest Icon - Luichel.png Luichel: Hello- My name's Luichel. I heard a lot about you. I've heard info the bandits hanging around the Wally Statue is under Banthus.

Especially watch out for the bats here. Also I heard there is a Giant Red Phoru inside this cave that is 3 times faster than a regular one.
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: This is not fair, just because it's red it suddenly became 3 times faster?

  • Story Quest Icon - Lenphad.png Lenphad: The number of bandits are increasing.
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: There are bandits everywhere but they are not doing anything about it? Something's fishy
  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: That's right. The bandits that stole the El Shard snuck into the village but there was no movement from the guards... This is very strange.
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: There must be someone behind everything.
  • Story Quest Icon - Rena.png Rena: Hm? You look a little different today, Elsword.
  • Story Quest Icon - Lenphad.png Lenphad: I can't ask the villagers for their help without solid proof. Would you guys investigate first? People say they saw bandits in the underground waterway.

StorySecret Passages?
{{
Quest Acceptance Prerequisites Objectives Description

Luichel was a thief herself when growing up. She sort of has an idea how Banthus got away through a secret passage but it's been so long. Let's go to Underground Waterway and begin scouting!

Quest Acceptance Dialogue
  • Story Quest Icon - Lenphad.png Lenphad: We'll storm the castle first thing tomorrow!
  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: Going head on is not a good idea. You never know what they are scheming inside the castle and might be traps there too.
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: We have to find a way to sneak in there.
  • Story Quest Icon - Rena.png Rena: Ooh?
  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: I guess we'll need her help.
  • Story Quest Icon - Luichel.png Luichel: Hmm.. There is an underground passage to Wally's castle inside the underground waterway. But it hasn't been used for a while so I don't know if you can still use it.
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: I guess we'll have to see if that is still valid.
Quest Completion Dialogue
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: We ran into Banthus and couldn't explore the area more..Darn it.
  • Story Quest Icon - Aisha.png Aisha: It wasn't the same Banthus, one arm was mechanical and he became stronger.
  • Story Quest Icon - Luichel.png Luichel: If we can't figure out the passage, Lenphad can't lead the villagers to infiltrate the Castle.
  • Story Quest Icon - Rena.png Rena: This plan will fail if we can't deal with Banthus.

  • Story Quest Icon - Luichel.png Luichel: Banthus is one persistent person.. Now with a mechanical arm
  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: If it is a mechanical arm there should be a device that controls it.
  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: Oh, I remembered something. I think his amulet shined whenever used his mechanical arm.
  • Story Quest Icon - Aisha.png Aisha: Are you sure you are remembering it right?
  • Story Quest Icon - Rena.png Rena: It's not really reliable...but it's worth a shot. Let's focus on Banthus's amulet this time.

  • Story Quest Icon - Elsword.png Elsword: Haa..so tired.. I brought the amulet but it feels strange.
  • Story Quest Icon - Aisha.png Aisha: I feel something.. But it's not magic.
  • Story Quest Icon - Hoffman.png Hoffman: Not magic... or a simple machine.... Could it be??!
  • Story Quest Icon - Lenphad.png Lenphad: Banthus seems weakened, let's take care of him first and get inside the castle.
