“It’s incredible ! Who would have believed that Arkaeology could be so boring ? One book, two books… And now, a third book ! And it’s back in the library ! If you hadn’t watched Jenry dig through the books for information, you’d swear he was just messing with you. But so be it. One last book, and you can finally flee this academic ambiance and put some distance between you and all these books, full of words…”

Reward(s) : 9 250 xp

How can someone be so heartless ? Burning books.. I can’t believe this ! Let’s roast them once and for all ! They have between 138 and 190 HPs, the tall ones will divide into two small ones when killed. Get rid of them !

7 – The Path to Knowledge – End

  • Go back and speak to Jenry Hones Jr.

Reward(s) : 1 850 xp

8 – The best 30% of Arkaeology – Start

“Jenry Hones Jr. had the great idea of replacing the stolen book – a solution which to you seems even crazier : exploring the ruins of Ancient Bonta – partially buried since Ogrest’s Chaos – looking for the original Gobbowlium Codex. Since there’s little time, he’s suggested using a more original method of transport : an aquatic elemental portal created by the Huppermages themselves. Head to the portal terrace, behind the last door to the right in the hall of the Immaterial University of Bonta.”

  • Go on to the Elemental Portals Platform at the IUB

Reward(s) : 1 850 xp

You will find a third door at the end of the corridor, go through it it to get to the Elemental Portals Platform.

9 – The Best 30% of the Arkaeology – The Leap

“There you are… The portals aren’t very reassuring. But in the end, taking the aquatic portal isn’t as bad as, say, having to take the fire portal. Leap into the siphon and don’t forget to hold your breath – it’s gonna be rough !”

  • Jump !

Reward(s) : 1 850 xp

Click on the blue portal and jump !

10 – The best 30% of Arkaeology I – Looking for the lost Library

Reward(s) : 1 850 xp

Climb the stairs at the top of the map and follow the path until you get to what’s left of the library.

11 – The Best 30% of Arkaeology I – The Library

“Well ! The ancient city really suffered during Ogrest’s Chaos… Everything’s run down, half submerged… But don’t get distracted by the strangeness of the place. You must find the original copy of the Gobbowlium Codex !”

  • Find a copy of the Gobbowlium Codex

Reward(s) : 1 850 xp

The right copy of the Gobbowlium Codex is the one on the picture below.

Note that if you take the wrong one, a fight will trigger against two unusual monsters. They have 125 HPs and don’t hit really hard.

12 – The Best 30% of Arkaeology I – A codex to covet

“It couldn’t have been that easy ! Greedy Mimiclopedias are ferociously guarding the intact books. If you want to leave with a copy of the Gobbowlium Codex, you’ll need to use both your brains and your muscles !”

  • Defeat the creatures to get the Codex

Reward(s) : 9 250 xp + Gobbowlium Codex

Finding the right book will trigger a fight against 3 creatures, the same as before. They have 125 HPs and don’t hit hard, no worries !

13 – The best 30% of Arkaeology II – En route for the Cup

“Jenry Hones Jr. has decrypted the Codex. It tells of a Gobbowl champion in the Dofus era who was the last owner of the cup containing the strange metal ball that is supposed to be the second Orichalcum. Khan Karkass, a skilled champion, must have been resting peacefully in his tomb in the Old Bonta Cemetery for some hundreds of years now. Off to the garden of graves !”

  • Find the Old Bonta Cemetery
  • Examine Khan Karkass’s grave

Reward(s) : 1 850 xp

You arrive in the Old Bonta Cemetery. Be careful though, don’t touch the tombstone and keep going until you find Khan Karkass’s grave to examine it.

14 – The best 30% of Arkaeology II – The return of Team Missile

“Mimiclopedias, ok. But Team Missile and Mimi the Marvelous ? Again ? There’s really something suspicious about this whole thing… But it doesn’t matter. Now that they’re there, you’ll need to get rid of them to continue.”

  • Defeat Team Missile

Reward(s) : 11 100 xp

Yes… Again… There are several things to know for this fight : If you kill Miouze, the fight stops. If only Miouze is left, he will give up. Janes and Jemmy can summon 3 creatures : Crab, Arakne and a rat. Janes has 450 HPs, Jemmy 620 HPs and Miouze has 900 HPs. This time, there are graves on the field when the fight starts.

The graves have only 1 HP, if you hit a grave, a chafer will pop up. They have 154 HPs, try not to destroy graves.

15 – Beyond-the-grave Champion I – Venerable Spirit

“The fight was unforgettable, and even if Mimi wasn’t that marvelous, she was still more useful than at Bovis’s Lair – whether against Team Missile or Bovis. In any case, you’re now free of that infernal trio of egocentric nuisances. Now all you have to do is to take care of Khan Karkass’s Ghostof and you’ll be able to get back onto the path to that much sought-after cup. Theoretically.”

  • Talk to Khan Karkass’s Ghostof

Reward(s) : 1 850 xp

16 – Beyond-the-grave Champion I – The Gobbowl Temple

“Yet another colorful character ! But Khan was still very useful in revealing the real Gobbowl Cup’s location to you. Now you’re in the home stretch to your objective, and maybe the second Orichalcum. You’ve already wasted enough time, so get to the Old Bonta Gobbowl Stadium !”

  • Find the entrance to the Old Bonta Gobbowl Stadium

Reward(s) : 1 850 xp

17 – Beyond-the-grave Champion I – The Goddess

“That was nice ! Just when you thought you’d gotten rid of that arrogant young woman with blue skin, here she is on your path again… You’ll no doubt have to “enjoy” the marvelous Mimi’s company a little while longer, which must hardly be pleasant. She doesn’t seem to be bad at heart, just badly brought-up. Maybe you can kill two birds with one stone by helping her to track down her ancestor while you look for the cup… So go and ask Osamodas’s Goddess what she thinks of the idea…”

  • Talk to Mimi the Marvelous

Reward(s) : 1 850 xp

18 – Beyond-the-grave Champion II – The grass is greener on the other pitch

“Between Jenry Hones Jr. and Mimi the Marvelous, you’re nicely surrounded ! A beautiful Osamodas with an overinflated ego, and an Arkaeologist who has a crush on the girl… Either way, so long as you don’t get weighed down by them… Now you’ll find out if the expression “Gobbowl hell” is real or not…”

  • Explore the Old Bonta Gobbowl Stadium

Reward(s) : 1 850 xp

1st Room : Since they are already dead, when you kill them, they don’t disappear from the field and will rise again after 2 turns unless you kill their body or end the fight before it happens ! And since they’re dead.. If you heal them, it will damage them ! They have between 190 and 241 HPs. There are also 2 chafers with 154 HPs, if you kill them though, they’ll directly disappear from the fight.

Exactly the same fight as before.

Alright, now you’re outside on the Gobbowl field. Well… What’s left of it. The fights are gonna be a bit different ! You have two options there, either you fight as usual or you do a Gobbowl match. You need to mark 3 touchdowns to win the match ! How does it work ? To grab the gobbowl, cast a single target spell on it, you will then carry it. Run to the red area (enemy’s area) and it will count as a touchdown. For each touchdown, the mobs will lose 1/3 of their max HPs. Be careful though, they also know how to play !

Now to get to the last room, walk to the top of the map until you find stairs, climb them. You need to pass through the terraces in order to get to the last gobbowl field.

19 – Beyond-the-grave Champion II – Khaaaaaan !

“What a traitor ! That Khan’s a double-crosser. And a selfish too ! But it is his cup, after all. Anyway, you’re still going to have to beat him, and on his own turf : in a Gobbowl match. But are the rules really the same as a traditional match when you’re up against a spectral team ? Don’t forget that all tactics are allowed, even cheating that’s the spirit of Gobbowl !”

  • Free Khan Karkass’ spirit
  • Get the Orichalcum on Khan’s Cup

Reward(s) : 11 100 xp + Unidentified Object

Try to take Khan’s Cup, it will then trigger a fight !

It is the same kind of fight as before except that this time, you are against Khan Karkass himself ! Khan Karkass has 1 120 HPs. It’s up to you, fight with spells or with a gobbowl… All you need to do is to win this fight.

To get out of the dungeon, head to the right until you find a geyser.

20 – Orichalcum – Second !

“There you go ! The cup’s strange metal orb is now well and truly in your hands. All that’s left to do is to find out if it’s really an orichalcum, more specifically the Orichalcum you need. The procedure is no longer a secret to you, and Jenry Hones Jr. reminds you of it : go to the Temple of Scriptures in Astrub to get the sphere authenticated by professor Jenry Hones Sr. !”

  • Get the Orichalculm identified at the Temple of Scriptures by Jenry Hones Sr.

Reward(s) : 37 100 xp + Bontarian Orichalcum Relic
