Pyramid/Pharaoh PQ Guide

January 23, 2010
Pyramid PQ

The Pyramid PQ is located near Araint and Magatia. To get there, go to the map Sahel 3. On the mini-map, you can see the Pyramid PQ as a pyramid on the map.

The Pyramid PQ has different modes and difficulties. You may choose to enter alone or with a party of up to 6 people.

Pyramid PQ has four different difficulties which depend on your level.

The four difficulties are:

Easy: Level 40-45
Normal: Level 46-50
Hard: Level 51-60
Hell: Level 61+

Alone or with a Party?

In the Pyramid PQ, you may choose to enter alone or with a party. It is ussually better to do it alone because later on, there aren’t as many monsters. Also, when alone, your ACT bar lowers slower. When your ACT reaches 0, you are kicked out.

The Display

In your top left corner, you will have four (4) counters in a box to track your progress.
Kills: Kind of obvious….the number of monsters you have killed. This also adds the amount of experience you gain at the end of the PQ.
Cool: Cool is added by the number of cool attacks you use. Some of these are ohkos, final attacks, or combos.
Miss: How many times you have hit the Pharaoh Yetis. Reduces the amount of EXP you get when you finish or fail. Reduces the amount of your ACT bar.

Pyramid Power: This allows you to use special pyramid powers. These power have to be earned during the PQ and make you much stronger.
ACT Bar: ACT is very important to keep up. Once this reaches zero, you fail the PQ and will be kicked out. TO keep the ACT Bar from lowering, keep killing monsters.

Beating the Pyramid PQ

To finish the Pyramid PQ, you must survive each stage and make sure your ACT never reaches 0.

Stages

There are five  stages in the Pyramid PQ. They are all pretty similar. Each map has two portals on each side of the map (a relatively small map). From these portals, monsters will summon. You cannot go through these portals. Each stage is about 2-3 mins and after the time, you will be teleported to the next stage.

During each stage except the first, a Pharaoh Yeti might be summoned. It will stand out and will have an exclamation point  in a yellow circle above its head. Do not kill this yeti. If you try to hit this yeti, you will miss. This will add to your miss category at the top left of your screen and will lower the exp earned at the end of the PQ. Also, it will make your ACT bar lower. To kill a yeti, use the Pyramid Power Attacks on the yeti. There are no other ways to kill the Yetis.

The Bonus Stage

The bonus stage can only be entered by immediately entering this stage after completing the PQ, or using a previously obtained Pharaoh Yeti’s jewel.

In this stage, you will have one minute to kill all of the Pharaoh Yetis in the map. You do not need to use Pyramid Powers on these yetis. Each Pharaoh Yeti will drop a box, which is your reward for finishing the PQ.  The box will appear in your inventory as a box. Double click it to recieve the reward. The Immortal Pharaoh Belt can only be obtained through the Hell Difficulty.

Hammering Items

January 8, 2010

Recently, I have been searching through the FM and in the MTS to do some merchanting. Strangely, I’ve noticed many items that are hammered but still have 2 slots. I was wondering whether or not this actually is worth it.

Personally, I think this is a waste of time and money. Maybe not a waste of time, since it only takes a few seconds. However, I don’t think having the item already hammered actually makes people want to buy it more. Some items I’ve seen like this are: perfect scrolled items (7 slots are perfect scrolled), clean brown work gloves (9 slots after hammering), and other scrolled equips. Ussually, they are godly equips.

For the brown work gloves, I think it is a waste. Some people might even be drawn away from the item BECAUSE it is hammered. They might be scared to fail a scroll and have wasted the extra mesos for paying for the hammered item. I think this is the worst type of hammering of them all (between the 3 listed).

For godly items, I also think this is a waste. Some may argue that it encourages people without nx cash to buy it. However, for most people who can AFFORD a godly item, chances are, they can afford nx either in RL or through mts.

The last type of item I’ve seen hammered with 2 slots left are work gloves (scrolled). This is also a waste. Often people don’t like to scroll their work gloves. Either scared of failing or even of paying for the scrolls.

In conclusion, I think it is dumb to hammer an item before selling it. I don’t think people will pay extra and generally I think it will take longer to sell. I would just sell the item, then either sell nx (though there are a lot of scammers), or buy items through the mts and sell those.

Tell me what you think here! Also, see what people thought at Sleepywood Forums: http://www.sleepywood.net/forum/showthread.php?t=1623619
