Vanguard: Saga of Heroes – Tips & Tricks On Solving Isle Of Dawn Quests – Part 2

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes – Tips & Tricks On Solving Isle Of Dawn Quests – Part 2This post is here to provide a quick tips on handling quests in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes starter/trial area called Isle of Dawn. This one is Part 2 of the initial post (it grew too big to upgrade each time) and holds mainly crafting quests. As i have started to play Vanguard over again with a fresh character, I’m trying to write about those quests that may raise a question on how to find a solution and what should you do in case if a miracle happened and you started playing Vanguard too. If you haven’t found a particular quest, chances are it’s been already covered in Part 1 here, because i write notes in order of progress. If i find something else to add, this post will either be upgraded or a link to a next one will be added.

Quest: Artisan’s Saga: Suspicious Conclusions (Crafting)
Quest Giver:
Sanho Northwind
Objectives: Speak to Sanho Northwind to learn about his energy capture device. Bring it to the Ulvari-filled hobgoblin encampment when its completed. When the device has captured the necessary magical energy, return it to Sanho in the Sun Village.
How to solve the quest: You have to craft the energy capture device before doing anything else. When it’s ready, go to someplace where Ulvari reside – Hobgoblin encampment will do just fine – and activate the device from your inventory. If it’s not working, then you’re not close enough. When it activates properly, the game says you have captured Ulvari energy and the quest it done – you have to go back to the quest giver and give him the device.

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, Isle of Dawn Quest: Artisan’s Saga: Ulvari Investigation (Crafting) Quest: Artisan’s Saga: Ulvari Investigation (Crafting)
Quest Giver:
Sanho Northwind
Objectives: Investigate Ki Ta Village. Uncover information about the power, origin, or strength of the Ulvari by finding a hobgoblin willing to speak. When finished, return to Sanho Northwind in the Sun Village.
How to solve the quest: You’ll have a quest objective marked with “Hobgoblin village” name, but it means not the village invaded by Ulvari, but village Ki Ta, where Diplomacy quests are taking place. You have to go to the outskirts of the village near the river, where you will see a non-hostile hobgoblin. He’s not marked with a quest icon, but you have to speak to him to finish the quest objective.

Quest: Artisan’s Saga: Ulvari Counter (Crafting)
Quest Giver:
Mitachi Waterstone
Objectives:
Speak to Sukai Sunrain in the House of Shining Waves to assist in rebuilding the monastery’s defenses. When the task is complete, return to Sukai.
How to solve the quest: Just craft all the needed items (they’ll require both crafting stations of your profession ) and go back to Sukai.

Quest: Artisan’s Saga: Ulvari Purge (Crafting)
Quest Giver:
Sukai Sunrain
Objectives:
Speak to Sukai Sunrain in the House of Shining Waves to learn more of her plan to purge the Ulvari from the area. Follow her directions and return to her when the job is complete.
How to solve the quest: First, you have to craft the Staff of Votdar, then either show it to Mitachi or find an Ulvari and activate the staff on it – what you do first doesn’t affects the quest. When finished, go back to Sukai to turn in the quest.

Quest: Artisan’s Saga: Ruthless Hunter (Crafting)
Quest Giver:
Ki the Fiend Hunter
Objectives: Converse with Ki the Fiend Hunter. Work with her in her attack against the Ulvari. You may need to borrow a flying creature to reach the temple. When the assault is finished, speak to her again.
How to solve the quest: Ki is standing next to Artificer crafting station, in a corner. To assist her you’ll have to craft an amulet, but to do that you’ll need a component item. If you don’t have it, first go and cut some trees to get the weakened timber, then craft a board out of it. Having the board on hands you’ll be able to craft the amulet.

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, Isle of Dawn Quest: Scout the Isle (Adventuring) Quest: Scout the Isle (Adventuring)
Quest Giver:
Veteran Gatewatcher
Objectives: Rent a pegasus from Raikil Windflower. Fly to each of the scout markers and return to Veteran Gatewatcher.
How to solve the quest: If you haven’t used a pegasus before, go outside and follow the quest objective, it will lead you to a pegasus “parking lot” near the river and an NPC who offers them for rent. Follow his instruction to use a pegasus and fly to the Marker shown on your map. If you do not see anything special when reaching the point, it means you’re not high enough – fly upward and you’ll reach the Marker. When you do so, the next Marker appears on your map – you have to fly to each one of them and get back closing the circle. Talk to the quest giver again when you’re finished.

Quest: Diplomat’s Saga: Break of Dawn (Diplomacy)
Quest Giver:
Zuo Dragonfall
Objectives: Find Jenzu and stop him from taking control of the Ulvari. He has made his way deep inside the Temple of the Ancestors. Zuo’s guards have already moved inside and will be clearing a path.
How to solve the quest: Head into the Temple using the pegasus to reach it. When you enter the Temple, use the right corridor – you will see an Ulvari NPC and a strange construction levitating stone boulders. If you look from the edge of the platform, you’ll see Jenzu – jump down and prepare for the diplomatic fight. This one is rather tricky, you have to finish parley quickly because hostile Ulvari will spawn and start fighting with the NPCs, ending your parley at whatever point it might have been. In the parley itself i recommend using comments and cards consuming 2 red or brown points. To finish the quest you have to speak to Zuo again.

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, Isle of Dawn Quest: Artisan’s Saga: Ulvari Requiem (Crafting) Quest: Artisan’s Saga: Ulvari Requiem (Crafting)
Quest Giver:
Mitachi (Location 2, Temple entrance)
Objectives: Work with Mitachi to remove the Ulvari from the Isle of Dawn. The Ulvari Keeper is next to the untainted altar that he guards. Return to Mitachi when the task is complete.
How to solve the quest: To find the altar you have to take the east path inside the Temple (i.e. the right corridor). Use altar, then speak to Ulvari Keeper – i am not sure if you need to kill Iku Dai prior to this, if the Keeper doesn’t wants to die, maybe that’s the problem. This is the last crafting quest on the Isle of Dawn.

Quest: Diplomat’s Saga: Island Epilogue (Diplomacy)
Quest Giver:
Zuo Dragonfall
Objectives: Inform Magistrate Gai, Elder Chief To Re the Spiritseer, Captain Taejin, Juritor Aya Sa, and Shui Redwine of the halting of the Ulvari and the defeat of Jenzu.
How to solve the quest: Just talk to everyone. Don’t forget that some NPCs are in the small village where you started playing. This is the last Diplomacy quest out there.

Quest: The Shotaru (Adventuring)
Quest Giver:
Hoangsu Halfmoon
Objectives: Slay the Shotaru on the hills leading to the Temple of the Ancients, as well as the Shotaru inside the temple. Collect their death poems and deliver them to Hoangsu Halfmoon.
How to solve the quest:  You’ll need the pegasus. First, fly over the hills leading to the Temple – you need the ones that have ruins on them, because that’s where first 3 shotaru are residing. Remember that you can’t see the enemies from far above, have to fly close to land for that. After you killed all 3, go inside the Temple. The first shotaru you probably killed already, but if not – he’s in the east chamber (i.e. take the right corridor to get there), one level down from Ulvari Keeper. The second one is past the fire barrier, NOT in Altar of Fire room! The guy in Altar of Fire has nothing to do with Shotaru quest, so you don’t need to try to kill him! To get past the fire barrier you have to finish another quest beforehand.

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, Isle of Dawn Quest: A Second Chance (Adventuring)Quest: A Second Chance (Adventuring)
Quest Giver: Ang Di Lowrock
Objectives: Travel down the west wing and find the Altar of Fire room. Find an ember shard in a nearby chest. Stand at the top stair of the altar and use the ember shard to summon the Aspect of Zalaz. Speak with him and request his protection from Iku Dai. Return to Ang Di Lowrock when you are done.
How to solve the quest:  You get this one from a dead guy in the Temple. Going down, take the left corridor (i.e. go to the west) and find the Altar of Fire room – it’s the last one on your way. To the right from the entrance there is a chest, you can open it without killing all the mobs if you get inside a tent near it. After you’ve gotten yourself an ember, go and stand on the top step of the stair (just don’t fall into lava, it’s lethal!) and use the item to summon Zalazz. Zalazz appears to be quite angry, but if you refrain from being rude and offensive and keep telling him you’re here to help, he’ll finally give up and help you. After you finish this quest you’re able to finish The Shotaru and Ascension quests.

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, Isle of Dawn Quest: Beyond the Glass (Adventuring) Quest: Beyond the Glass (Adventuring)
Quest Giver:
Ang Di Lowrock
Objectives: Slay some Ulvari to rub their blood on the armor. Interact with the barrier in the east wing to pass through it. Find Iku Dai and slay him to close the portal to the Ulvari realm. Return to Ang Di Lowrock when done.
How to solve the quest: Just go to the east chamber and kill some ulvari on your way. You don’t need to do anything else, after you have killed a few there appears a notice that you have rubbed some blood on your armor. After that you need to go down and pass the fire barrier (click on it). There are a lot of enemies past the barrier, but if you’re careful it’s possible to aggro only one or two at a time. When you get into the big hall with Iku Dai, clear your path to him so no one will aggro on you when you attack him. Before attacking, remember to active the item Zalazz gave you, and then pray you’re lucky to land some critical hits on him. I myself killed Iku Dai on second time.

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, Isle of Dawn Quest: Ascension (Adventuring) Quest: Ascension (Adventuring)
Quest Giver:
Ish Dain Snowcrane
Objectives: Enter the Temple of the Ancestors. Find a way to go past the barrier to Guardian Father Iku Dai’s chambers and kill him to shut down the portal to the Ulvari realm. Return to Ish Dai Snowcrane when done.
How to solve the quest: Same as Beyond the Glass (if you have done that quest, Ascension is done too). A Second Chance quest should be finished before you’re able to do that, though.

Quest: The Path to Adventure (Adventuring)
Quest Giver: Ish Dai Snowcrane
Objectives: Learn about the different paths to take from the Rift Keeper behind the House of Shining Waves.
How to solve the quest: Talk to the Rift Keeper – he’s behind the House of Shining Waves. This is the last Adventuring quest on Isle of Dawn.

REMEMBER, IF YOU LEAVE THE ISLE OF DAWN BEFORE YOU FINISH ANY OTHER QUESTS, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET BACK WITH THAT CHARACTER, EVER! So finish up your business before you leave.
