    • noobbgodlike says:

      as long as you have latest equipment and buff your character when you are in battle. I think you could.

      • kate says:

        I have a level 16 mage and 17 worrior and 25 minestal (me) and i dont want to go in if im not going to survive so i would like to know what level should we all be mage,worrior and me?

        • noobbgodlike says:

          Sorry I really forgot about the level. Just try it and if your level is not sufficient you can train in that dungeon too (it has highest experience rate atm, CMIIW)

  10. wiggy says:

    what level were you when you battled Lleviathan and won

  11. Pharap says:

    Firstly, sorry to be kinda picky but it’s port Llaffan, with two L’s and no i.

    And secondly, you are supposed to do the tower of trades before port Llafan, as evident by the monster guide putting the Lleviathan after the master of nu’un and the Lleviathan having more experience.

    • noobbgodlike says:

      LOL sorry for mistyping. I do llafan port first because When i first come to tower of trades it didn’t give me a hint to do that quest (only tells me jack is missing) so i go to Llafan first.

  12. Lodey says:

    Where’s the wand located for the weapon quest you get from Swinedimples?

    • noobbgodlike says:

      sorry i don’t know what you are talking about, is it a part of side quest?? i haven’t done it. If you want to ask about side quest question please do it on side quest section thank you for using my guide

    • Dragonquester says:

      i understand what he is saying. the quest in swinedimples where you have to get back the wand and it is named you scratch my back. the wand is dropped by salamanders there in twll cave.
