Resurrection of the Hoblin King PQ is a party quest based on El Nath. Shammos has a premonition that Rex, an evil hunter from El Nath will be released from his seal and bring terror onto El Nath, and asks that you escort him there to ensure the safety of the sea. A party of 2 or more is needed, and can enter as long as they are all over the level of 170. Shammos is located in Spiegelmann's Guest House, and lets you inside the PQ. Note: The quests involving Rex are completely optional, and are NOT in any way mandatory.
When you talk to Shammos at the PQ lobby to start, he will send you to the Ice Ravine Entrance. Have your party leader talk to Shammos to start the PQ. Note, if someone leaves the party, Shammos will reject your party from entering the PQ, and you will have to exit and possibly reform the party.
This stage is the easiest of all but still relatively challenging. Escort Shammos across Ice Ravine 1. If you walk too far away from Shammos, he will call you back and within 30 seconds you must go back to him or you will fail the PQ. At certain points monster will suddenly spawn and you have to kill all of them. When you reach the ledge on the right, one member goes to the top right and obtain Ancient Glacier Water (other members may also do so to obtain more Shammon Healing Potions to heal 50,000 HP for Shammos), within 30 seconds (Shammos will call you back even though you are taking the water). You can use the water anytime to heal Shammos for 50,000 HP so long as it is not the Boss Stage. Up till 1 Ancient Glacier Water can be taken by each person.
Achievement Ratio: 25%
Stage 2 and 3
Escort Shammos across Ice Ravine 2 and 3 and protect him from monsters in the process. At the side of a small cliff at Ice Ravine 2, there will be a snowball obstacle, use normal attack to break it and continue advancing. Towards the end of Ice Ravine 2 and throughout Ice Ravine 3, ice shards drop from the sky, you have to take the blow to protect Shammos if needed (deals only 5% damage, if Shammos takes the blow he receives lots of damage, more than what a potion can heal him)
Achievement Ratio: 25% for Stage 2, 25% for Stage 3
Once you enter the Ancient Ice Cave, Shammos will betray you and break the seal, freeing Rex. You must defeat Rex to complete the PQ. Rex possesses skills including a dash attack, an attack where he leaps in the air and throws something at you, an AoE super knockback where the Hyena roars, and a skill where he drops icicles on you. He can also create a Poison Cloud, blind the screen so that you only see a small radius, Zombify, and summon 2 Combat Hoblins and 2 Ferocious Hoblins to aid him when at 30% HP or lower.
Achievement Ratio: 25%
Rex will drop a Hobb Warrior Mark. You must have an Etc slot to obtain it (only 1 party member is needed to pick it up, if you do not have an Etc slot when someone picks it up you forfeit that item)
