Master Apprentice Relationships
One feature to help bridge that level gap and create a closer community is the Master and Apprentice System. This system allows a high level character to take a lower leveled character under their wing to help them complete quests for great rewards for both players.
Master: Functions Overview
Any character over level 105 has the potential to become a Master. The Master may request any player which is LV 75 or below to become their Disciple/Apprentice. Any character eligible for becoming a Master may press the [Y] key to access the Master and Apprentice interface (also accessible by clicking the Interaction button on the Menu Bar, then clicking the Master and Apprentice button).
The Master may click the Train button within the interface and insert a character name which is eligible to become an Apprentice name to invite them to become their Apprentice. Alternatively, they may select a character and right-click on their portrait/profile and click the "Disciple" button to perform the same action. (NOTE: Currently the only way to accept your first disciple is by right-clicking on their name and selecting "Disciple") The Master may select an Apprentice currently under their tutelage and click Banish to remove them.
A Master may only adopt one Apprentice per day (meaning that if an Apprentice/Master breaks the relationship the same day it is formed, it is not possible for them to create another relationship that same day). A Master may only have one Apprentice to begin with, but can gain a second at 350 expertise, a third at 1500 expertise, a forth at 4500 expertise and a fifth at 12000.
Expertise points are used to learn Expertise Skills.
The expertise cost per level of skill goes:
|LV 1||25 Expertise|
|LV 2||50 Expertise|
|LV 3||125 Expertise|
|LV 4||250 Expertise|
|LV 5||500 Expertise|
|LV 6||1000 Expertise|
|LV 7||1800 Expertise|
|LV 8||3600 Expertise|
|LV 9||7200 Expertise|
|LV 10||14400 Expertise|
|LV 11||14400 Expertise|
|LV 12||14400 Expertise|
Apprentice: Functions Overview
The Apprentice must be level 75 or below. A potential Apprentice is unable to access the Master and Apprentice interface until they either reach Level 105 or obtain a Master. An Apprentice cannot have more than one Master. If an Apprentice levels beyond level 75, they remain an Apprentice unless Banished by the Master.
Once the Apprentice reaches LV105, the relationship with their Master is dissolved, and the Apprentice is now able of having Apprentices of their own.
An Apprentice may Betray their current Master and become an Apprentice to another Master in the same day (they do not have the option to Betray the new Master within the same day however). For an Apprentice to break off from their Master prior to obtaining their own Apprentice, they may speak with Tao Danush in Sunstream City and select the Betrayal quest.
Once an Apprentice reaches the point where they can obtain their own Apprentice, doing so will remove them from their previous Master.
Master & Apprentice: Quests Overview
Once the Master/Apprentice relationship has been formed, the Apprentice may obtain quests (by speaking to Tao Danush in Sunstream City).
The quests obtained by the Apprentice, while not requiring the Master to be present at the time it is obtained, do require the Master to be present and within a Party in order to defeat the Monsters (as they are likely more powerful than the Apprentice). The Master should be the party leader.
Quests may be repeated as many times as desired (up to 3 times a day). New quests available to the Apprentice at Level 1, 30, 45, 60, 75 (not so much ‘New’ but rather the same exact quest updated with more appropriately leveled Yellow Pill reward items). The quests obtained by the Master are only available if the Master is the Party leader.
Master & Apprentice: Quest Guide
Once a day speak with Tao Danush in Sunstream City while in a Party with your Apprentice and accept the "Expertise Training" quest. The Master must be the party leader.
Both the Master and Apprentice receive a quest titled "Expertise Training", but the Apprentice quest has different objectives than the Master quest.
Coincidentally, being in a Party with a lower level character (the Apprentice) will also award the higher level character (the Master) with Charity points when they level up.
Feast of Immortals
Said to be the food of immortals, Tau Danush requests that you assist him in gathering 10 bundles of peaches to present as a gift to his Master.
Though the Master does not need to be present at the time the quest is accepted, the Apprentice will require the assistance of their Master in order to defeat the creatures.
Travel to the Bamboo Peak in the Jadeon mountains and seek out the Aeolian Monkeys which have stolen the fruit from nearby trees (-326, 134).
Upon completion of the quest, the Apprentice is awarded with 30 Taichi Pills and 3 Bundles of HP Pills which grant 99 Remedy items per pack used.
|1-29||Bundled Rough Yellow Pill x3||Instantly restores 168 Health, and then restores an additional 55 Health three times over the next six seconds.|
|30-44||Bundled Refined Yellow Pill x3||Instantly restores 288 Health, and then restores an additional 96 Health three times over the next six seconds.|
|45-59||Bundled Excellent Yellow Pill x3||Instantly restores 360 Health, and then restores an additional 120 Health three times over the next six seconds.|
|60-74||Bundled Special Yellow Pill x3||Instantly restores 456 Health, and then restores an additional 151 Health three times over the next six seconds.|
|75-105||Bundled Perfect Yellow Pill x3||Instantly restores 636 Health, and then restores an additional 211 Health three times over the next six seconds.|
The Master must be the party leader to start this quest.
With the Master and Apprentice joined together in a Party, speak with Tao Danush.
Upon the Master accepting the quest, both the Master and Apprentice will receive two parts to the same quest, each having separate objectives. However, if either hope to benefit from this pairing, they must cooperate.
Travel to Jadeon in search of a rare treasure. You will be sent after one of three items.
With a horde of Eldest Gilhook defending this rare treasure, work together as Master and Apprentice to find a way of obtaining the item within the chest.
- Option 1 - Waterproof Orb: Jadeon - Lake Hoten (87, -225)
- Option 2 - Fireproof Orb: Jadeon - Temple of Zaaras (-447, -442)
- Option 3 - Glacial Ice: Jadeon - Mount Yonder (216, 446)
With your prize in hand, return to Tao Danush.

Having assisted in the further training of their Apprentice, the Master receives the Instruction Bloom for their efforts. They should speak with Tao Danush in Sunstream City again to receive 10 Taichi Pills and 50 Expertise points.
Upon reaching level 90, the Apprentice is ready to complete their training.
Note: If the Apprentice does not complete the trial before reaching LV105, the quest will fail and no rewards will be given.

Speak with Tao Danush and then set off in search of Baako (358, -406) within the Bamboo Clearing of Jadeon.
Having spoken with Baako, travel to the Hall of the Founder and speak with Baye (138, 426).
After listening to Baye, continue on to the Crystal Hall and speak with Enu (126, 228).
Having heard the advice of your peers, travel to the Doom Bog and battle the Gilhook Grandlord in the Wasted Ruins (290, 314).
Note: Your Master cannot assist you in this fight - you must prove yourself worthy.
With the beast slain, return to Tao Danush in Sunstream City.
Having completed the quest, the Apprentice is awarded with Tao Danush's Letter.
