For those preparing for The Illia Sisters Quest, here are some hints, tips, advice, and suggestions -

  • Recommended Warrior build stats: STR=80 VIT=80 LUK=70 DEX=40 AGI=remainder
  • Recommended Focus Skill for Warrior: Raging
  • Enter /addpriorityattack Luvia [and confirm it by looking at Social (Key f11), Atk].
  • Go to Setup (Key f9), Players tab, uncheck the box that says "Use special diagonal speed in players moving", and click Apply.
  • Go to Setup (Key f9), Quick tab, 4th line should be "default follow".
  • Go to Inventory (Key f3), click O for Outfits, put your clothing and equipment in the slots. [Press Control and the Key number of the outfit for a quick change.]
  • Bring Chicken Legs, Water, Iron Potions and Concentration Potions. Put them in Shortcuts (Key f8).

From CRC guild chat, July 25, 2019:
[15:50] Rill~: well, we are waiting for a magic mage to show up, so Nced can conquer Illia.
[15:51] ginosuper's mule: I see. Good luck โ˜บ
[15:52] Nced: Thanks. โ˜บ
[15:52] Rill~: hmmm... maybe here's a few Illia tips that you may not know, Nced...
[15:53] Rill~: when you enter the first section, we will only target green slime...
[15:53] Nced is all ears
[15:53] Rill~: but do not start killing slime until the hero first talks to the rock...
[15:54] Rill~: then, one of the four will get a message to proceed, so that player will need to let others know so we can all run and enter the opening in the rock...
[15:54] Rill~: then we will be in the dark cave... be prepared to have a quick change of your clothes ready...

[15:55] Rill~: from there we will be transported to jail...
[15:56] Rill~: and in our underwear
[15:56] Rill~: so quickly dress...
[15:56] Rill~: then for the combo to get out of jail
[15:56] Rill~: usually the locks are right there after killing a few creatures...
[15:57] Rill~: but sometimes you have to wait until more creatures spawn, and then kill them before the lock picks appear
[15:57] Rill~: and then you need to figure out the combination to get out of jail...
[15:58] Rill~: it is a 3 choice combo, of soft, medium, hard
[15:59] Rill~: once one is set (for instance, if the first is soft, it remains soft)
[15:59] Rill~: so then it is just a process of elimination

[16:00] Rill~: from there, we follow the leader/mage to a room where we kill bandit lords...
[16:00] Rill~: never run in front of the mage...
[16:00] Rill~: we kill the bandits until a message appears, then we click on the door that takes us to a desert area

[16:01] Rill~: the hero will click on the waterfall and the warriors will kill snakes to gather sealed souls...
[16:01] Rill~: meanwhile, the mage will be diverting the soul eaters away from the warriors
[16:02] Rill~: this is important: do not enter any buildings or go over any bridges
[16:02] Rill~: just target the snakes running around outside...
[16:03] Rill~: now, when the sealed souls drop, they do not actually appear on the ground...
[16:03] Rill~: they go straight to your inventory...
[16:03] Rill~: so you need to have an eye on your inventory to see if you have any
[16:03] Rill~: once you get one, you can
[16:04] Rill~: place it in a shortcut slot, and it and any others will always appear there
[16:04] Rill~: the hero will need 7 of these...
[16:05] Rill~: once you have collected one (or more) run over to the mage (or whoever is the designated hero) and drop the soul near him or her, so they can pick it up
[16:06] Rill~: after the hero gets 7, we run to the waterfall and click on it

[16:06] Rill~: then we arrive in a grassy area outside the Inn
[16:07] Rill~: here there are 3 roles: mage, who sits in a magic circle; warrior who protects mage; 2 warriors (or archers) who gather.
[16:08] Rill~: if you are a gatherer, you need to kill the slime which drop 3 sizes of chunky blue things (shard, lazurite crystal, heart of lazurite).
[16:08] Rill~: collect all, but keep in mind that the largest are the best
[16:09] Rill~: and there are 2 spots that drop most of the largest ones...
[16:10] Rill~: one spot is the SW little island area, just above the waterfall, and the other is the little NW island
[16:10] Rill~: but there are also slime in the NE and SE sections, too
[16:11] Rill~: when you collect the drops, it is best to set aside 3 slots in your shortcuts to put these in...
[16:12] Rill~: now when you have collected a bunch, you run to the mage sitting in the circle and stand directly over him, in his exact spot, and just drop all the shards/lazurites
[16:14] Rill~: when enough have been dropped, the mage will be released from the circle...

[16:14] Rill~: then we all enter the Inn...
[16:15] Rill~: there, we will use the Follow key to all follow the mage...
[16:15] Rill~: once it begins here, there will be a massive release of demonics, and the mage will lead us on multiple runs around the room...
[16:16] Rill~: there will be 3 major spawns of demonics, which the mage will work to round up and get under control
[16:17] Rill~: once the mage has the demonics in a close tight group, the warriors will break off, and stand on the carpet at the bottom of the room...
[16:18] Rill~: then each time the mage passes by, followed by the demonics (like the Pied Piper), the warriors start picking off and killing the demonics
[16:18] Rill~: it is best to attack the end of the line...
[16:19] Rill~: and to stay on the carpet...
[16:19] Rill~: if you run after the mob and attack that way, sometimes the tail of the group may break off and attack you...
[16:20] Rill~: sometimes archers run after the mobs, too, but there is always some risk of the mob turning on you, that way
[16:21] Rill~: and different mages have different levels of control, too
[16:22] Rill~: now we all keep killing as the mage continues running, until all the demonics are dead...

[16:22] Rill~: then the 3 warriors rush to the sw corner of the room and wait...
[16:22] Rill~: the next spawn is the witch guards...
[16:23] Rill~: the mage will again gather them up and take them around the room, but we will not follow...
[16:23] Rill~: instead, warriors will right away start to attack the guards
[16:23] Rill~: one by one
[16:24] Rill~: use potions, watch health
[16:24] Rill~: we do this until all are dead...
[16:24] Rill~: then we are ready for the next room...

[16:25] Rill~: now we will go up some stairs into a small room...
[16:25] Rill~: but be careful when you enter this room...
[16:25] Rill~: enter slowly and then do not move at all... stand completely still for about 10 seconds...
[16:26] Rill~: the reason we stand still is that it generates better drops from the mobs that will come
[16:27] Rill~: the mobs are demonics and witch guards, but it will not be that difficult here
[16:28] Rill~: ok, now when all the mobs are dead here, we leave this room and enter the main room for the final battle

[16:29] Rill~: the mage will take a moment to prepare and let us know when he/she is ready...
[16:29] Rill~: then, the witch will say a few words and appear...
[16:30] Rill~: the mage will lead the mobs around the table, but the warriors stand and fight the witch...
[16:31] Rill~: with priority attack, you should just press X once, and that should do all the work...
[16:31] Rill~: the key is to have chicken and water in the tops slots and be ready to press them ...
[16:32] Rill~: watch your health at all times...
[16:32] Rill~: now this is important...
[16:32] Rill~: when you get hit and take chicken or water, there is still a few second delay before they take affect...
[16:33] Rill~: and if the witch hits you before the healing items kick in, you will be dead...
[16:33] Rill~: so if your health gets low, and you are waiting to heal, step back a few steps from fighting until you regain health
[16:35] Rill~: so we just continue to target the witch only, as the mage continues to run, and we use our pots and watch our health, until she is dead
[16:35] Rill~: and then we enter the next and final room to collect our prizes โ˜บ

[16:35] Rill~: any questions?
[16:37] Nced: Thank you Rill for a very detailed explanation, there's much more than I could understand from the video. %%G
[16:37] Rill~: good... and after you do it once, you will be a veteran โ˜บ
[16:37] Nced: And yeah, I think I have some questions.
[16:38] Nced: Are those blue crystals dropped from the slimes or do they just appear on the ground?
[16:38] Rill~: dropped from slimes
[16:39] Rill~: but slimes also pick them up, so be quick to grab them!
[16:40] Nced: The wiki says "The caster has to stand perfectly still while the others gather Legacy Lazurite Crystals that appear all over the island", probably it's wrong.
[16:41] Rill~: well, by gathering I think it means killing and gathering... sometimes some crystals do just appear
[16:42] Rill~: like the big ones on the small islands...
[16:42] Rill~: but the slimes can also grab them at any time
[16:43] Rill~: and the bigger the blue crystals, the more power they have to release the mage sooner
[16:45] Nced: Ok... at what HP should I step back while fighting Luvia?
[16:45] matto: less than half i'd say
[16:46] Rill~: that sounds like good advice... but you must remember that things at the end will be happening at warp speed....
[16:47] Octo: during illia i usually have about 800 max hp, once i get to 600 i heal myself
[16:47] matto: when i play matto i always "run away" when i get a critical hit
[16:48] Rill~: which is why 80 vit is recommended... and even with an isis, I don't think I can take more than 3 hits
[16:50] Nced: How do we choose a warrior to protect the hero outside the inn?
[16:50] Rill~: mage's choice
[16:51] Rill~: (usually I do it)
[16:52] Rill~: also, you do not have to be the designated hero in order to get your prize
[16:52] Nced: Ok, no more questions. Thank you very much, Rill. โ˜บ
[16:52] Rill~: since the hero has an extra target on his back, it is best for the hero to be the mage or the highest lvl experienced warrior
[16:53] Rill~: yw, Nced โ˜บ
[16:55] Nced: I think I'll keep the guide handy so that I don't forget anything in a rush.

Wow, Rill, great job on the walkthrough, it's amazing! First time I did Illia on Tmw-Waaar server, it took a lot of trial and error. ๐Ÿ˜‚ We died a lot. I dub this : Rill's Complete Guide to a Very Successful Illia Sister's Quest With 0% (or almost 0) Chance of Death. It can go into Rill's Book of Words of Wisdom at the back. ^^

Thank you very much for your kind words, DP! Of course, I wrote this from the perspective of a rage warrior, which is the way most players attempt Illia, especially first-timers. Team success is usually always contingent on an expert mage runner leading the way. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Thank you Rill. This is an excellent guide for a 1 Mage - 4 worriors team. I heard about a run with 4 archers - would be nice to read a guide for that too.

Danke, Nanoq! I heard about that run, too. And I agree that it would be nice to read such a guide. In the meantime, however, at least we can watch the video, courtesy of Msawis. ๐Ÿ˜„

I wasn't aware that killing those Soul Eaters removed some sealed souls I've got. That's why runners keep them busy...
