Adventure Seal Collecting Guide
Special thanks to Habimaru, who posted a similar guide in the old forums.
Thanks to Leinei and Greta for contributing with more tips.
This guide is focusing in collecting Adventure Seals without the hassle of battling. While it requires preparation, it pays off in the long run. We will be focusing on Seal Quests that require little to no fighting, or that don’t require having high skills in order to complete quickly.
• Handicraft Kit
• Cooking Knife
• Cooking Table
• Striped Marlin
• Admiral Owen Box
• Hilween Engineering Bag
• Magic Craft Bag
• 5 White Herbs
• Cooking and Handicraft Skills at rank F+
Without any further ado, let’s begin shall we:
• Puppet Shop – Talk to Macauley
If you are a newbie you can make Paper Cranes to get your Handicraft level to rank E. After collecting the quest reward, just drop the Puppets.
• Restaurant – Talk to Gordon
We just need to make a 3 star dish so, in order to save time you will prepare both the Vegetable Canape and the Tomato Basil Salad. Why? Because we need those 2 dishes later.
You can get Stamed Potatoes for the recipe from Glenis' quests if you're just starting to rank Cooking. Other method is to make Bread Crumbs (Mixing); the only downside is that the Sliced Bread needed to make them can be pricey for newbies.
• Nails for Stones – Speak to Madoc
Just hit the nearest sign post in order to gather the Nails. If you have a pet, summon it to hit the prop with you, so you get them quicker. This quest also grants you 2 Homestead Stones! :O
• Manolin’s Revenge – Speak to Manolin
You need to give him a Striped Marlin. I suggest stocking on Marlins either by Fishing yourself or buying from players, since this fish is not in NPC shops.
COMMONWEALTH OF BELFAST
• Delicious Vegetables – Talk to Laffe
Remember the Vegetable Canape you prepared at Gordon’s Restaurant? Well, just accept this quest and present it to Laffe. Easy peasy, lemon squeazy.
• Diet Menu – Talk to Hiko
Hiko will ask for a Tomato Basil Salad, which you, coincidentally just have in your inventory. :P
• Admiral Owen’s Box – Talk to Monatte
You’ll need to give an Admiral Owen’s Box, which can only be fished at Belfast. Either stock up previously or buy from other players.
Physis – Hillwen Mine
• Hillwen Engineering – Talk to Hector
Actually a simple crafting quest, just make the amount needed. Save the leftover materials for training the skill and Emerald Cores can sometimes be sold to other players.
Physis – Whirlpool Mark
• Red’s Favor – Talk to Spy Red
I usually don’t do this quest, since it requires gathering White Herbs and if you aren’t strong enough Polar Hornets are a hassle. But now, since we can get the Herbs from Festia Conmemorative Boxes, you can stock up on them and add this quest to your daily rotation when you have collected enough.
Connous – Shyllien Nature Reserve
• Magic Craft – Talk to Weiss
Just like its counterpart in Physis: make only the required number of crafts and save the raw materials for later.
Connous – Metus Canyon
• Keeping Cover – Talk to Intelligence Agent
Ok, this one involves fighting…but the Desert Ghost aren’t that hard, so it would prove no problem.
Rano – Qilla Base Camp
• Ruin Discovery – Talk to Alexina
You need to discover 10 relics, so head to the Human Mark. You can discover a path of statues from both sides of it. Use the maps at Mabinogi World Wiki if you have trouble, but in due time, you’ll know the path by heart. If you already have Demigod, you can summon a fast mount and run around Cor Village.
SAGA 7 & 10
Doing these Saga Episodes will give you another Adventure Seal, plus a Saga Reward Box full of goodies if you open it on the right day.
Episode 7 involves no fighting other than a RP Mission where you’ll be Cessair’s Heart with maxed out Gunslinger Skills. Great for newbies with little fighting power.
Episode 10 involves fighting the Cessair, a swarm of Aohnbarrs and Macha herself. Macha is actually a piece of cake, so you only need to watch out for the first two battles. Suggested for stronger characters, it can be done quite fast.
NOTE ON SAGA BOXES:
Saga Boxes (the ones that look like CD cases) should be collected throughout the week and opened on Saturday/Sunday in order to maximize the gains from them. You’ll receive more gold, the chance for a transformation medal and Saga coupons to exchange for useful goodies.
