See A Piece of Cake/History for historical information relevant to this quest.
A Piece of Cake starts on February 21st and ends on February 26th.
- Dwarven Ring avoids drunkenness when you lure Cake Golems into the Cake Extraction Machines.
- For the second stage a lot of hungry people will be needed.
First stageWhen the World Quest starts, you will notice raids of Cake Golems in Thais, Carlin, Edron, Darashia or Liberty Bay. These raids happens at random so pay attention!
When the Cake Golems appear in the cities, a few of them needs to be killed in order to collect 200 Sweet and Sugary Substances. These substances should be delivered to the Baker NPCs who can be found near the Cake Extraction Machines. A copy of A Piece of Cake I (Book), which explains the first stage of the quest, can also be found near every machine. If you say mass to any baker, they will tell you how many sugary substances were delivered.
Every hour the server will check if all the sugary substances and base material has been delivered. If yes, the bridge in south of Cormaya will be built and the second stage will start.
Second stageGo to the bridge in the southern end of Cormaya, here. You will find a massive cake and A Piece of Cake II (Book), which will explain the second stage of the quest.
Every 30 minutes after the bridge was built there will be an event where you have to eat cake. If all of the cake is eaten (except for the corners) the cake will drop, if it isn't the cake is reset and will have to be eaten again.
Before this part is started you should make sure you have a lot of hungry people (not regenerating) in Cormaya, so when the bridge is built they can rush to the island and start eating. After about 5 bites a character becomes full. It takes 20 minutes to be hungry again so in the half an hour you get to eat the cake a player can have 12 bites. This means that there has to be at least 87 players eating the cake in order to finish one layer. By stepping on a spot where cake was already eaten you will earn the achievement Cake Conqueror.
If the whole layer has been eaten since the last reset the next layer will come down. Once all 4 layers are eaten the world quest is completed!
On Titania Jarun Vord came up with the idea to do it in true PvP-style. Since there were too few hungry characters they created noobchars that were moved to Edron. These players were given money to travel to Cormaya and once a noobchar was full of cake he was killed. This way the cake was eaten in four turns straight.
Once the whole cake has been eaten, NPC Brutus The Baker will appear here after the next Server Save. He asks you to step on the Cake Base at the island, and then visit the Cake Extraction Machines in Thais, Carlin, Edron, Darashia and Liberty Bay.
Once you have stepped on the extraction machine, return to the Cake Keep Isle, step on the cake base again and then proceed to the next city, repeating the process.
- Route example: Cake Isle > Thais > Cake Isle > Carlin > Cake Isle > Darashia > Cake Isle > Liberty Bay > Cake Isle > Edron
