    Default How to recruit the Hwarang

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

    rate.
    Moreover, they increase alliesí 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 Oneís 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
    Reward: Experience: 2,000,000 / Gold: 5,000,000
    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.
    6. Killing Monsters I
    Mission: Kill [Naughty Goblin] x15
    Reward: Experience: 4,000,000 / Gold: 10,000,000
    7. Killing Monsters II
    Mission: Kill [Poison-Horned Python] x15
    Reward: Experience: 4,000,000 / Gold: 10,000,000

    Mission: Put 1 mounts in the Mount Book
    Reward: Experience: 200,000 / Gold: 500,000

    Hwarang Skills:


    This skill prevents enemyís instrument-type mercenaries from using skills.


    This skill increases your long-range mercenariesí damage and multiple hit rates.


    This skill is a last resort when the Hwarang is dying or almost dead. This skill buffs all of your mercenaries giving them additional damage.




    Upgrades:

    Level 20 = 50 Phoenix Crystals
    Level 50 = 100 Phoenix Crystals
    Level 80 = 20 Phoenix Jewels
    Level 100 = 30 Phoenix Jewels
    Level 120 = 100 Phoenix Jewels
    Level 130 = 150 Phoenix Jewels


    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 itís 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 mercenariesí attack power and combo rate.

    Me too, Empress has an ultimate attack compare to hwarang and thinking of his skills for additional disable of your enemy mercenaries like the Empress curse like Silence and Buffs like Empress blessing.. she can be considered as an offense and defense merc.

    What if you have both Hwarang and Empress? If that happens, the Empress will definitely be a killer! Have you thought about that?

    yes, but as I observed on Free league matches of high levels, usually at early turns of matches both sides prioritize killing snipe mercs like himiko or hwarang.
