Hwarangs are strong mercenaries who can decrease the attack power of enemies’ instrument-type mercenaries and block their magic. They increase long-range mercenaries’ attack power and combo

rate.
Moreover, they increase allies’ attack powers by sacrificing themselves at dangerous moments.

You can start the Hwarang recruitment quest through Hwarang Kim Yoo Shin near Bulguksa at level 112.
Ove[img][/img]rall, there are 24 quests to recruit the Hwarang and the NPCs are Hwarang Kim Yoo Shin, Chun Guan and Mysterious Old Man.


The quests are as follows:


Hwarang Kim Yoo Shin:

1. Loyalty to One’s Lord
Mission: Join a nation
Reward: Experience: 200,000 / Gold: 500,000
2. Love and Respect Your Parents and Teachers
Mission: Hand-made Carnation x1
Reward: Experience: 4,000,000 / Gold: 10,000,000
3. Trust Your Friends
Mission: Give a gift to a beginner (below level [29]) randomly. x2

4. Never Retreat
Mission: Kill [Transformed Old Fox] x1
Reward: Experience: 2,000,000 / Gold: 5,000,000 / Item: Jiuyokyung x1
5. Never Take Life Without Just Cause
Mission: Rescue [Innocent Villager] x 100
Reward: Experience: 4,000,000 / Gold: 10,000,000
*Tips*
the groups you'll encounter are 1 Disguised Bandit hiding in the back row and 8 Innocent Villager. Killing Villagers reduces your quest progress by 1, and each Villager alive when the Bandit

dies increases your quest progress by 1.
Unless your formation is 6x Archer, you will have a very hard time killing the Bandit without harming any of the Villagers. You can kill 2 Villagers to clear a way to the Bandit, and then

rescue the 6 survivors. You will have to kill twice as many groups to finish the quest if you choose to do it that way, though...
The villagers are level 10 and very frail, so it's likely the splash from a cannon/axe/powersaw will kill them. Reinforcements are common, though only the Bandit will attack you anyway.

The Hwarang is a very useful mercenary both in PVP and PVE. In PVP, it is especially useful in snipe formations for killing enemy mercenaries within just a few turns but it’s also good for

stun formations which also have long range mercenaries. Usually, it is placed in the last row because it is one of the mercenaries which are targeted first because of its aura which increases

long-range mercenaries’ attack power and combo rate.
