With 22nd of jan. sGE servers were blessed with v3.0, which brought us expert stances, 3 new rnpcs, and other sweet things:)
The char that i was looking forward the most, was ofc Selva.combined with Gavin& edward she's the tank of the team.
So, 1st thing you need when you recruit her, is to finish ALL the Pioneering quests, Bahama Quests, Katovic quests, need to have Gavin quests done, and you need to complete Tierra putrefacta quests. (It's alot of prequisits, but it's worth it.)
So selva is one of those "free" rnpc's that are free to recruit, but need Gpoints to craft her glove to get her exclusive stances. (Smooth move IAH, smooth move ^^)
So the quests starts (after you completed all of her quests), in auch by Leonore. you need 2x Hero's seal. (so tough luck if you used all of them in hunter missions or you never went to PY)
-Go to Port of Coimbra and talk to Nunez.
-Go to Gehenna Bridge, the last level of Prision de Jaquin, and talk to the Gatekeeper to open the entrance to Corridor of Assize. You need a Key to Corridor of Assize to do so. The key is a rare item drop from bosses in all levels of Prision de Jaquin and from Bellem Boxes. (4hour respawn time on the raid boss there)
-Enter the Corridor of Assize, kill the Chrysalis, and the subsequent Dr. Fran. The Corridor of Assize is a non-instanced raid, and the Chrysalis can several hours to spawn depending on when the previous Chrysalis was killed.
-Return to Nunez.
-Go to Katovic Snowfield and talk to Ludeza. You will receive a Ghost Nucleus.
Go to Frozen Plain. Drag 1 Ghost Nucleus from inventory and drop it into Rynn's Heart. The purpose is to summon a lvl110 quest version of an Avalanche Apparation. It can take several attempts before the Apparation is successfully summoned, so keep inserting the Ghost Nuclei one by one until it appears. Should you run out of Ghost Nuclei, you can exchange for more from Ludeza at the cost of 20 Wolf Meat and 10 Elviot's Leather each. Wolf Meat is a common item drop from Artic Wolves in Katovic Snowfield. Elviot's Leather is a common item drop from Elviot in Frozen Plain. (the aparittion has a 2hr respawn time, so do check both channels, if you get a "too early to summon" error) for this part you probably need squad, unless you're imba, cuz the boss is rather annoying (7mil HP, 58 AR/DR)
-Kill the Avalanche Apparation.
-When the Avalanche Apparition is dead, Montoro will appear near the entrance of the cave of Rynn's Heart. Kill him as well.
-Return to Ludeza.
-Go to Frozen Plain and talk to Invierno to start an instanced mission involving combat. Within the mission, defeat Selva to proceed.
-Talk to Invierno again.
Go to the Laboratory in Dr. Torsche Mansion and talk to Dr. Torsche.
Click on the bookshelf along the southern wall of the Laboratory to start an instanced mission. Inside the mission, click on the statue to get the next quest. You can leave the area once you get the quest.
-Go to Frozen Plain and talk to Invierno.
-Collect 10 Philosopher's Stones and 1 Katovic Soup. Philosopher's Stone is a common item drop in the Katovic Region. Katovic Soup is a normal consumable item that can be obtained by using Invierno's cooking pot. To cook the soup, you need to complete the Katovic quest line to gain access to Invierno's cooking pot, as well as to collect another 20 Golden Apples (from Eltetah trees in Katovic Snowfield and Frozen Plain), 50 Wolf Meat (from Wolves in Katovic Snowfield), 50 Beet (from Gorillas in Frozen Plain), and 50 Cabbages (from Lazim Lams in Katovic Snowfield). (Katovic Soup is/was also available from Adelina's Booty Search in sGE.)
-Talk to Invierno again.
-Return to Dr. Torsche's Mansion and reenter the instanced mission with the statue. Click on the statue again to start an easy combat.
-Talk to Dr. Torsche to receive Selva Character Card, Cauchemar Stance Book, Rapida Espada Stance Book, and Recipe - Selva's Armshield.
if you enchant your armshield and fail, you can always buy more recipes for it, by talking to dr. Torsche.
after that, return to barracks, and create Selva [RNPC Initial level: 60] x1 ^^
now, when you vet Selva, you get to learn the both stances. one of them is for tanking, and the other one is for dealing large amounts of dmg, thanks to 30% crit bonus from her stance >.<
(getting hit by that will probably hurt you plenty)
when you Vet her, either give her STR bonus (for 20% attack increase, and all skill related attacks), or give her AGI, which will provide a 10% attack bonus, to all her skill related attacks, Attack speed, and Block chance. (i'm gonna go with STR/AGI one at vet lvl, one at exp level.)
PS: Kudos to bookofthewind, for providing the quest guide, you trully rock man ^^
