    It's so easy a Caveman can do it! Experience the real nostalgia game play!

    Tired of leeching?
    Tired of HP washing?
    Tired of non-existent low level grinding community?
    Tired of class unbalanced where NL is everything in the lv 135+ only bossing meta?

    Caveman Final Ritual (CFR):

    You cannot receive help farming/trading the ETC or receive help on killing the monsters during the ritual. However, searching the area bosses as a community is recommended and encouraged. You may use black taxi during CFR.

    You may start CFR at any level after CIR, see Task 1-2 for more information.

    You must follow the quest line and do each chapter in order. You may not collect materials needed in later chapter first such as getting snack bar ss, or zombie mushmom drop, etc.
    Chapter 1: Stop Living Under a Rock

    An IQ 70 Caveman finally realized that he/she has been living under a rock for too long, and there is a world out there outside the cave. To prepare this journey, the caveman need to collect and prepare to survive outside the cave for an extended period of time. The caveman looked at his inventory, and realized all his food supplies has expired.


    Transfer, NPC, or drop, everything under the ETC tab out of your inventory except your dark crystal ore(s). Take a screenshot for proof.
    Gather the following ingredients inside the cave:
    X Snail Shell
    X Horny Mushroom Cap
    X The Charm of the Undead
    X Stirge Wing
    X Evil Eye Tail
    X Jr Boogie Horn
    X Cold Eye Tails
    X Drake Skull
    X Dragon Skin
    X Wild Cargo Eye
    X Ice Backbone
    X Dark Drakes Horn
    X Tauromacis Horn
    X Taurospear Horn
    Obtain selfie/ss getting killed by Jr Balrog (you need to be dead in the selfie)

    X=(87*Y)-(8*A)
    Y=2^(70-Z)
    Z=70 or your level, whichever is less
    A=# of Dark Crystal Ore you farmed
    If you're level 70 and you have 0 dark crystal ore, X = 87

    Chapter 2: The Journey Outside the Cave

    Now the caveman has enough food and resources to survive outside the cave, the caveman decided to visit the Real Chief in El Nath Chief's Residence since the Chief inside the cave are not smart enough for the IQ 70 Caveman anymore.

    The caveman was told that the outside world are a lot more civilized than the life inside the cave.


    Put away your weapon as a civilized person, walk from Sleepywood to Ellinia Station without killing anything, and purchase a boat ride ticket

    First time boat ride sure is exciting. Civilized world is so much more interesting than life inside the cave.

    Take a selfie/ss getting killed by Crimson Balrog

    After getting injured by a giant flying creature, the caveman is now really scared of the world outside the cave. The caveman decided to eat some magic mushroom, get high, and ease the pain.

    Gather Y Poisonous Mushroom from Zombie Mushmom

    Y=2^(70-Z)
    Z=70 or your level, whichever is less
    If you're level 70, Y = 1

    After getting high the caveman gathered enough courage to try the boat ride again to visit the Real Chief in El Nath.

    Put the weapon away and walk from Sleepywood to Ellinia, buy a boat ticket, and get to El Nath Chief's Residence by walking.

    Chapter 3: The Abduction

    The caveman finally arrived at the Chief's Residence, and found the Real Chief that's smarter than the Chief inside the cave. However, the Real Chief's beloved pet Gecko has been abducted by the Real Chief's evil Little Brother. The Real Chief asked the Caveman to rescue the pet gecko in Door of Dimension.


    Keep the weapon away, walk back to Orbis by climbing up the Orbis tower.
    Buy a ticket from Orbis and ride the ship back to Victoria Island.

    The caveman thought that he/she shouldn't fight the Real Chief's evil Little Brother with empty stomach. The caveman need to do a snack break before going to the Door of Dimension to rescue the pet Gecko.

    Get a selfie/ss getting killed by Snack Bar.

    The caveman ate the snack as if his/her life was depending on it. With a full stomach, the caveman arrived at the Door of Dimension.

    Enter the Door of Dimension and defeat the evil Little Brother and rescue the pet Gecko.

    After defeat the evil Little Brother, the caveman realized the pet Gecko was killed during the heated battle with the evil Little Brother. The caveman picked up the dead Gecko, and start heading back to the El Nath.

    Gather Y Poisonous Mushroom from Zombie Mushmom because the Real Chief might need it to ease the emotional pain.

    Y=2^(70-Z)
    Z=70 or your level, whichever is less
    If you're level 70, Y = 1
    Trade all the above ingredients and selfie/ss and dark crystal ore(s) to Cave Chief CavemanJake for a refined dark crystal.

    Walk back to El Nath from Sleepywood with weapon put away after gathering the mushroom.

    Arrived at the Chief's Residence, the Real Chief and delivered the bad news, the Real Chief ask the caveman to give the Gecko a proper burial at the Holy Ground at the Snowfield.

    Take the dead Gecko and the Refined Dark Crystal to the Holy Ground at the Snowfield, answered the questions, and return to the Chief's Residence.

    Chapter 4: Caveman's Determination

    The Real Chief thanked the caveman for all the help with 3rd job abilities, and asked the caveman to travel around the world with him. However, the caveman just realized the world outside the cave is not as civilized as he thought it would be. The life inside the cave isn't perfect, however the caveman has made up his/her mind to use the new found 3rd job skill to guide other cavemans to improve the way of the cave.


    Walk back to the cave.

    Edit: CFR has been omitted from the caveman 3rd job requirements. We will be focusing on figuring out a way to get dark crystal ores to our cavemen. Currently considering making Jr. Boogie Horns exchanged for dark crystal ores provided by a Jr. Master in the guild.

    Exceptions:
    You may only leave Ant Tunnel under the following conditions:
    1. Death. However you must go back into the cave as soon as you respawned back to Sleepywood.
    2. Turning in quest that are activated inside Ant Tunnel only.
    3. Getting medals that doesn't require any out-of-cave-time consuming process.
    4. Getting the Lv 70 hog.
    5. Participating in Events. (Only events that don't make you leave the cave are allowed.)
    6. Buying petfood
    7. Changing look (hair, eye, face, etc)
    8. Doing 3rd job advancement
    Field Study:
    • The Ant Tunnel provides a very balanced eco system with weapons, armors, and scrolls for each class for all weapons.
    • End game weapons available for each class is up to level 70.
    • BW Page and AXE Fighter are more viable than the most common SWORD Page and Fighter inside the cave.
    • Maple weapons are available but limited to a few classes: staff, BW, Bow and Claw. This encourage people to play the character per original design instead of STR-less/Dex-less/Luk-less build.

    I think you should allow the trade of Frozen Tuna into the Caveman community because nothing says prehistoric quite like beating things to death with a giant fish.

    All around sounds interesting. lol

    You are allowed to travel within any of the areas from Ant Tunnel 1 and onward. All the way up to Jr. Balrog's map. Everywhere outside of those caves is off-limits unless during certain exceptions such as events, job advancing/grabbing hog, doing zak runs for level 10 skill books, getting medals, or turning in the quests you start in those caves.

    I think sauna robe, Sleepywood gachapon, nearest town scroll, and Mr. Oh should be allowed, since Sleepywood immediately abuts the Ant Tunnel complex. If you're going to let people leave to Zak and get hog, none of that is a stretch.

    Here is why I made the decision on why I put sauna robe off limit:

    The design of thr Caveman challenge is to encourage people to play each job per original design of the character and as close to how majority of the players play maple Beta as possible. The goal is to let people to enjoy the game and the community, instead of worry about DPS/DPM, and the range.

    What I mean is adding both primary and secondary stats instead of pumping all the stats into primary like pure int, pure dex, pure str, pure luk, etc.

    Sauna robe quest will require lenthy amount of farming outside the cave for cursed eye tails, pig head, diamond ores, and lupin bananas. That will also open the gate way to pure primary build.

    Of course you can still go for the pure build, but youll be naked since most of the cloth for each job requires secondary stats to wear. I am aware that bow class can still go for the pure dex build and can still wear bowman cloth because they require dex only, and both maple bow and xbow are available inside the ant tunnel, but nothing is perfect right?

    I guess warrior can go for pure str build too since maple bw and sword are in the cave, but they have acc issue to even hit the weakest monster in the cave, horny mush. They will need dex to farm.
