MS El Nath Dungeon Icon.png The Zakum Party Quest is available to players over level 50 (for easy mode) or level 90+ (normal and chaos mode).

Zakum's room is located at the end of the Dead Mine, at the furthest point from El Nath. There are a few ways to reach there:

  • Proceed to Chief's Residence in El Nath and talk to the matching NPC based on your job.
  • Walk if you are strong enough to walk through monsters up to Level 136 with some maps having up to 55 Star Force requirements.
  • Boss Queue system if someone else is also queueing to be transported.

To exit safely (if you are low levelled and have less than 55 Star Force), talk to Adobis and request to be transported back to El Nath. If you used the Boss Queue system, you can exit by the left portal to go back to your original location instead, even though it is supposed to lead you to a map with 55 Star Force requirement.

Pre-requisites[edit]

  • Level 50 or higher for Easy mode.
  • Level 90 or higher for Normal and Chaos mode.
  • Maximum 1 entry per day regardless of mode (Easy and Normal mode), 1 clear per week for Chaos Mode.
  • Minimum 1 Eye of Fire for Normal and Chaos mode (Eye of Fire Debris for Easy mode). Can be obtained from NPC Adobis.

Repeatable Quests[edit]

Note: These quests are not required to be completed to fight Zakum. You can do these quests for fun though and it awards very little EXP.

Adobis Mission I[edit]

The first map of Zakum PQ.

When you first reach Adobis,

The party can consist of 1 to 6 members. The time limit is 30 minutes. The goal is to collect 7 keys. Additionally, the party has the option of collecting 30 document pieces. Once inside, there are 15 doors. Speed and Teleport do not work here. Each of these leads to a room which is made up of 1 or two parts. Inside rocks and treasure chests are scattered on the floor. These must be destroyed to get the Keys or Documents. Documents are always found in rocks, and Keys are usually found in Chests, though there are exceptions. A small note, the word Documents is blocked in game, so they're usually referred to as "Docs".

Unknown Dead Mine[edit]

Entry room.
Area 16.

Once you enter stage 1, you will be in the room displayed on the left, with further rooms accessible as labelled.

Two rooms, 10 and 7, lead to a further room called Area 16 <A Dead Mine Somewhere>, which has 6 rooms branching off of if. The arrow in the diagram will lead back to the main area.

Documents and keys are always found in the same rooms, listed below, but the specific rock or chest is randomized. Documents are generally found in rocks, and keys are generally found in chests, unless otherwise noted.

This is the Giant Chest, spewing out a Fire Ore.

Once all the keys are collected, they must be combined into one stack and dropped onto the large treasure chest located randomly at 16-5. For this reason, it is best to get the key in room 16-5 last. This causes the chest to open, and a complete Fire Ore is released. The Fire Ore must be returned to Aura located in the first room.

There are more than 30 documents, so get the ones that are easiest. It's recommended that one person focus on collecting keys while the others gather documents. Once everything is collected, hand it in to Aura, and walk through the portal. Anyone who does not make it through the portal will not receive a prize. Additionally, the leader must exit through the portal last, or the party members who had not yet passed through will not receive prizes.

Although it is fastest to complete with a larger party, it is possible, but much slower, to solo the quest.

Rewards[edit]

If completing the quest alone with just keys, the reward is 12000 EXP. If completing it alone with both Keys and documents, the reward is 20000 EXP. If completing it in a party, even if it is only made up of two members, with only keys, the EXP is 15000. If the party has both Keys and Documents, the reward is 20000 EXP. Any time that all Documents are collected, all players who finish are awarded with 5 Return to Dead Mine Scrolls.

Zakum Jump Quest[edit]

The second part of the Zakum Quest is a very long linear jump quest which requires the player to reach the end. Here, there are miniature statues that spew quick moving fireballs hindering the players progess. Below is a massive lake of lava therefore should the player fall, they'd be taking in a lot of damage getting back. Players cannot enter the Jump Quest until they completed Adobis's mission (the 1st Stage).

Zakum Boss Fight[edit]

  • Location: El Nath, Last Mission : Zakum's Altar
  • Summoning Requirement: Eye of Fire
The Altar of Zakum

This quest involves a giant stone boss at the end of The Caves of Trial. In order to face this huge boss, it is required that the players speak to Adobis to obtain the Eye of Fire. The boss has eight arms which will assist Zakum in its attacks. Zakum is based on the Muslim belief in Zaqqum, a tree said to grow in hell which provides the only fruit that the damned may eat. This is consistent with the Zakum of MapleStory, as a giant tree can be seen in the background when fighting it, and it must be summoned with a "seed". The boss is supposed to be the physical representation of this tree.

To summon Zakum, drop the Eye of Fire within the length of the altar and leave it there, it will be absorbed.
