Looking for Gnomerik

Go to Kazordoon and seek out Xelvar. Xelvar is at the northern part of the Temple street, near the northern blessing NPC.
Show/Hide route to Xelvar
Bigfoot's Burden Quest Xelvar NPC Location

Xelvar is north of the Temple.

Travel to Kazordoon via Magic Carpet. Ask magic carpet manager Gewen for a wagon ticket (250gp) and go north-west of the carpet to find the wagon. Use the wagon to go to the shops section. Go west and find the main series of wagons. Use them to go to the temple (read the signs on the walls to know where they go). From the temple wagons, go west and then north all the way.

Alternatively, if you know your way to the phoenix blessing, go toward the second (northern) blessing NPC but keep going north when it turns east.


Ask Xelvar to join the Gnomes and he will give you 3 Teleport Crystals and allow you to use the Gnomish Crystal Teleport System (GCTS). Enter the teleport east of Xelvar to arrive at the GCTS, above Gnomebase. Note that each time you enter and leave the GCTS you will spend a Teleport Crystal. If you need more, buy them from either the Xelvar, the Gnomebase NPCs Gnomette (in the GCTS) or Gnomincia (in Gnomebase Alpha) or the Market. It's a good idea to carry many with you.

Recruitment

A Test In Gnomology

Go downstairs to Gnomebase and find Gnomerik in the north-western part of the base. Start the recruitment examination by saying recruitment > yes > test. Answer the 16 questions to complete the first part of the exam. After each question you must say test to continue with the next question. if you scored 100 points or more (out of a maximum of 112) you can move on to the next part.

To get a perfect score the answers to choose are:

A, C, B, D, D, D, B, D, A, A, C, C, D, A, A, D
Show/Hide how to retry the examination

If you fail the test, you can retry the examination after drinking Mushroom Beer. Buy it for 10gp from Gnominus in his bar a south-east of the recruitment office (say beer > yes to buy it). Mushroom Beer turns to Stale Mushroom Beer after 20 seconds which cannot be used to restart the exam. You can repeat the exam as many times as you like.

Medical Examination

Go west of the recruitment office and talk to NPC Gnomespector. Say recruit and walk through the g-rays to the south. You will briefly change into the appearance of a Skeleton.

Ear Examination

Keep walking south and talk to Doctor Gnomedix. Walk on the platform and wait while a series of humorous server messages is displayed. When a Strange Slime appears, your ear examination is complete.

Shooting

Keep walking south for the shooting test. Find Gnomaticus and ask him about the shooting test to receive the mission. Now that you have the mission, go west into the small room and step on a firing platform. To the far north you will see a green Crystal Glass Floor. Every few seconds, either a Target Dummy or an Innocent Target will appear on the tile in your firing range. If it's a Target Dummy, shoot it, otherwise wait for it to disappear. When you have shot 5 target dummies in a row without shooting an innocent target, you are done. Go back to Gnomaticus and report about your success.

Endurance Test

Go south to Gnomewart. Ask him about the endurance test and go through the Large Crystal Teleporter to the south. Run along the path west and then north all the way. At the end of the path there are tiles that teleport you back a few tiles. These tiles will only do so 20 times before they finally let you through (at the 10th time you will see " <gasp>"). At the very end there are tiles that are incredibly slow to run on. Just keep running and enter the teleport at the end to return. Report to Gnomewart about your endurance test.

Soul Melody

Go east to find Gnomelvis. Talk to Gnomelvis and say musical to receive the mission to find your soul melody.

There are 4 large crystals in the room you are in: a blue one to the north, red to the east, green to the south and cyan to the west. Your character has a specific melody which is created by using the crystals in a specific order. You must find this order by using the crystals and creating fireworks 7 times in a row. Notes can be repeated, and if you see a red note you must start over from the first one. It's a good idea to record the sequence so you can easily recall the correct notes if you fail.

When you are done, report back to Gnomelvis about your musical test. You have now completed the recruitment test and have received the achievement Becoming a Bigfoot.

Tasks and Gnome Reputation

From here on, you will mostly be doing daily tasks. You will have access to different tasks depending on your reputation in the Gnomebase community. You advance through the ranks by completing daily tasks and/or turning in Minor Crystalline Tokens which you receive as rewards for completing tasks.

Minor Crystalline Tokens are worth 5 reputation points and can be traded with NPC Gnomally (by saying relations). This process is not bound to the 20 hour limit like the tasks are, so they are the quickest way to progress through the ranks, albeit expensive.

Ranks

There are 4 ranks. You will be assigned these ranks automatically when you receive the required reputation. The first three ranks will grant you access to more daily tasks, the fourth grants access to the Warzones. There are achievements for each of the ranks which will also be assigned automatically.

Rank Reputation Achievement Tasks available Days taken minimum
(no rank) 0 -- Crystal Keeper, Raiders of the Lost Spark --
Rank I 30 Gnome Little Helper Exterminators, Mushroom Digger 3
Rank II 120 Gnome Friend The Tinker's Bell, Matchmaker 8
Rank III 480 Gnomelike Spore Gathering, Grindstone Hunt 18
Rank IV 1440 Honorary Gnome Warzones 36

Tasks

There are 8 tasks in total. You unlock 2 additional tasks for reaching Rank I, II and III. Each of these tasks are repeatable 20 hours after you report it last. These tasks grant reputation, tokens and a Gnomish Supply Package. You also receive achievements for doing them the first time. Note that you can receive all tasks at once and complete them together, and this will save time.

Bigfoot's Burden Quest Matchmaker Mission


Show/Hide technical details

You can swap Lonely Crystals with other players. The game doesn't assign a large crystal to your character. Instead, you obtain a random crystal (when you open the package) which has a defined counterpart. You can determine which Large Crystal you must use by adding the lonely crystal to a hotkey and searching the Tibia.cfg file for the item ID. Each item ID corresponds to a different large crystal in the cave:

Item ID Crystal Location
15801 Floor 1, north-west (here).
15803 Floor 1, north-east (here).
15804 Floor 1, south-east (here).
15805 Floor 1, ramp (here).
15806 Floor 2, north (here).
15807 Floor 2, middle (here).
15808 Floor 2, south (here).

Rewards: 2 Minor Crystalline Tokens, Gnomish Supply Package, 10 reputation points, achievement "Crystals in Love".

Note: you can do this with part of or all of the extermination task. If you didn't finish the extermination task with the digging task it is recommended you come here for the last kills.
Go to Gnomeral in Gnomebase Alpha and ask them for the spore mission. He will give you a Gnomish Spore Gatherer. Go to the Mushroom Gardens and down the mushroom corkscrew stairs.

Bigfoot's Burden Quest Mushroom Gardens Location

Use puffball mushrooms (white) and colored spores will appear on top of it.

Bigfoot's Burden Quest Spore Mission

If the color is the one you need to collect, use the kit on it. If not, find another mushroom and repeat the process. If you use your kit on the wrong color spore you will ruin it and need to start over from the first color. Do this until you have collected all 4 in the given order (red, green, blue and yellow is the correct order). Report back to Gnomeral.

Show/Hide technical details

You can buy Gnomish Spore Gatherers for 50gp from Gnomally and fill them in bulk. The game only cares that you have the complete spore package, it doesn't care how you got it. There are 5 spore packages (red, green, blue, yellow, complete) which differ only in flavortext. Since the spores don't disappear on use, you can collect spores 4-5 times per mushroom. This makes bulk gathering very efficient. The spore gatherers do not expire, no matter the stage they are in.

Rewards: 2 Minor Crystalline Token, Gnomish Supply Package, 10 reputation points, achievement "Spore Hunter".

Grindstone Hunt

Be Prepared to Face: Vulcongras, Massive Fire Elementals, Dragon Lords
Go to Gnomeral in Gnomebase Alpha and ask them for the grindstone mission. They will send you to the Hot Spot (teleport is south-east of Gnomeral).

Bigfoot's Burden Quest Hot Spot Location

Bigfoot's Burden Quest Grindstone Mission 2

Rewards: 2 Minor Crystalline Tokens, Gnomish Supply Package, 10 reputation points, achievement "Grinding Again".

The True Challenge (Warzones - Rank IV)

Upon advancing to rank IV you will get the achievement "Honorary Gnome". The warzones are the end of the questline. It encompasses a massive struggle against a horde of creatures threatening the gnomes.

There are three warzones, each harder in difficulty than the last. Each must be completed before players can proceed to the next. Also, each has a specific tactic to reach the boss.

Warzone 1

In warzone 1 you will face many Humongous Fungus, many Hideous Fungus as well as the occasional Armadile and Stone Devourer.

Warzone 1 Route

The path to follow.

Talk to Gnomission for access to the warzones. Obtain a Red Teleport Crystal if you haven't turned in Deathstrike's Snippet and enter the first warzone. You appear in the antechamber to the first warzone. There are no monsters here but an NPC to brief you on your mission. You do not need to talk with the NPC. When your team is ready, enter the teleporter to the east of the antechamber and maneuver the cave as shown in the map. When you arrive at the furthest east you will see a green crystal statue. Use the statue to begin the spawning. Each 20 seconds, a wave of about 5-6 fungi will spawn in the area. After 10 waves (200 seconds) a teleporter will appear 3 sqm east of the crystal statue. Enter this portal to appear in the boss room. The teleporter will be open for approximately 1 minute, and when it closes the boss will spawn.

Deathstrike is the warzone boss; he is the second hardest boss of the three warzones. It will take a lot of firepower to bring Deathstrike down in the 30 minutes your team has to do so because of his strong healing. He will focus on whoever is hitting him for the most damage, so the blockers of the team are recommended to stand adjacent to him even despite his beam attacks, or he will run toward the mages. If your team realizes Deathstrike is too much, they may retreat through the portal in the south-east of the boss room. Note that if you enter the boss room you may not enter again for 20 hours, even if your team fails or dies in the boss room.

Besides the loot he drops, when you defeat Deathstrike you will gain access to the reward chest just north of the warzone 1 teleporter. You may open this each time you defeat Deathstrike but you must deal damage to the boss. In the reward chest you will receive 3 Crystal Coins, 2 Major Crystalline Tokens and two of the following: a Mucus Plug, a Gill Necklace, the Torso of Deathstrike, the Legs of Deathstrike, or the Head of Deathstrike. You can receive the achievements Final Strike and Death on Strike by opening his chest once and 50 times, respectively.

Some hints for this warzone challenge:

  • All party members must use a Dwarven Ring because drunkenness is very common in the warzones.
  • If you plan on attempting the warzones frequently, it may be economical to buy Deathstrike's Snippet - this item allows you permanent access to warzone 1 and is looted always from the boss of warzone 1, Deathstrike.
  • The monsters come in large groups, and most of them attack the person dealing the most damage to them. Druids and sorcerers may easily be overwhelmed by the sheer number of fungus attacking them.
  • Your team must plan what strategy they will use at the end. On Optional PvP and Open PvP (dove mode) the easiest strategy is to stack 3 sqm east and 1 sqm south of the crystal to start the raids, closing the team in with magic walls. On other servers the easiest strategy is probably to block as many spawns as possible with players, and kill the ones that do spawn.
  • If your team is public or has strangers, be very wary at the final bend because players can run ahead spawn the raids prematurely with no possibility to prevent it (as of update 10.2). It can be very dangerous if your team is running to the stack while fungi are spawning.

Warzone 2

In this warzone you will face Magma Crawlers, Lava Golems, Lost Berserkers, Weepers and Infected Weepers. Fight your way to the barred teleport. Once there, lure an infected weeper (found on the way) and hold it near the bars. When the infected weeper summons Parasites, kill them 1 sqm in front of the bars. If done properly the gates will be damaged. Do this 3 times in a short period and the wall will be destroyed. Enter the teleport to face Gnomevil, but be fast as the wall regenerates itself to a previous damage stage (not to full instantly).

After defeating him for the first time you will get the achievement "Gnomebane's Bane". If you do this 50 times you will get the achievement "Fall of the Fallen".


Strategy: Warzone 2 is the easiest of the warzones, however, many of the monsters are still capable of one-hitting unsuspecting players. Here are a few tips for this warzone:

  • Monsters:
    • General: Bring energy walls! Even if only to trap the infected weeper, energy walls can block all monsters in this warzone.
    • Weeper, Infected Weeper: Focus on these first! Paladins and knights should stand between Weepers and the mages, even if it means standing in a beam. Weepers will retarget to the lowest mage nearly every turn, so challenge is almost useless against them. Since mages are very vulnerable, having a weeper chase the lowest level mage will be disastrous.
    • Lava Golem: Focus on these after weepers. Stay diagonal if you can, they are easier to control than weepers.
    • Lost Berserker: Focus on these after lava golems. Not a significant problem but they will require you to use a Dwarven Ring for the whole warzone.
    • Magma Crawler: Focus on these last. They are not a significant threat because they are distance fighters and their main attacks are beams and a fire Berserk-like attack. Avoid beams and try to include them in AoE attacks while you kill other things. Only focus on them when they are the survivors of a pack.
  • Infected luring: Do not block the path for the infected weeper to reach the gate. Stand north or south of the bars or in the room west. Guide and trap the infected weeper at the bars with energy walls. Three walls need to be made at a minimum to force the weeper to summon next to the bars: two columns 2 and 3 sqm west of the bars, and one column 1 sqm east (the infected weeper can summon through the bars, players cannot cover these positions).
  • Boss fight: Trap Gnomevil as soon as possible (he spawns east of the tar *). Paladins and knights must stand adjacent to Gnomevil at all times. Gnomevil attacks the highest-hitting player so if they move, Gnomevil will escape and annihilate (usually) the highest mage. Gnomevil will not move diagonally through a player obstructing him and he will not retarget to that player. In other words the "blockers" are not physical tanks here, but players preventing Gnomevil from destroying their target. Because of this, if done properly the only players to receive damage are one of the knights (when he spawns) and then 1-2 of the mages with his distance attacks. The blockers will also be manadrained very often, so it might help to bring some Mana Drain resistance.

Warzone 3

In this warzone you will face Orewalkers, Cliff Striders, Ironblights, and Lost Berserkers. Fight your way to the end, where you find an empty room and a dirt mound.

This is probably the hardest part of the warzones save for the bosses. Step on the dirt mound to spawn Versperoth. Versperoth will appear for 20 seconds and then disappear for 10, repeating this many times. Each time Versperoth disappears, 10 or so minions of Versperoth will spawn. These are Lava Golems but giving no loot and less experience, and they have a lifetime of about 20 seconds. When Versperoth appears, deal as much damage to him as possible.

When Versperoth dies a teleport appears on the dirt mound where he died. The minions do not die, so just run to the teleport (it disappears after some time), where you will fight Abyssador.

After defeating him you will get the achievement "Death from Below" by opening his chest. If you do this 50 times you will get the achievement "Diplomatic Immunity".

Clearing All Warzones

After clearing all warzones you will get the achievement "Dungeon Cleaner" and you will be able to get Some Golden Fruits north of the Gnomebase depot.

Gnomish War Hero (Permanent access)

The warzone bosses all drop creature products that are proof that you have slain them. When you give these items to Gnomission, he will grant you permanent free access to the corresponding warzones. This only saves you a Red Teleport Crystal, it does not remove the 20 hour limit on entering boss rooms. Gnomission will not accept items unless you can access the corresponding warzone, but you don't need to have completed it before.

Warzone Boss Product
Warzone 1 Deathstrike Deathstrike's Snippet
Warzone 2 Gnomevil Gnomevil's Hat
Warzone 3 Abyssador Abyssador's Lash

After giving Gnomission all 3 of these, you will receive the achievement Gnomish Art Of War.
