The Celestial Hunter: Heart of the Jaguar

By the time she was ten years old, the Celestial Hunter was already a master archer. Not even the village's veteran hunters could best her, and it wasn't long before the young girl was leading hunting parties herself. Though most of the men grumbled about having a small girl at the head, the village elder recognized the Celestial Hunter's skill and the integral role she had begun to play within their small society.

As the Hunter grew up the men began to respect her and she became an important fixture in the village's leadership. One day, the elder chief sent her on a quest to further master her skills with some of the region's most respected archers. But when The Celestial Hunter returned, she found her home burned to the ground and her fellow villagers missing. Are they alive? What horrible fate has befallen them? Armed with only her bow and her wits, the Celestial Hunter has set out to save her people and bring justice to those who would do them harm.

Quilla: Legend of the Inca

Through the Eyes of the Gods

Throughout the Four United Provinces of the Inca Empire, Quilla was known as the most skilled and prophetic astrologer. Quilla could predict when the rainfalls would be at their most abundant, giving the empire bountiful harvests. Using the stars and moon as her guide, Quilla could look into the past, or gaze into the future to witness the rise and fall of even the mightiest kings.

Now Quilla's dreams have become dark and fretful. Visions come to her without warning, visions of a great evil spreading throughout the South and Central American regions. In these visions she sees a hunter with skills beyond measure, a Mayan warrior woman in the jungles to the north. Though she does not know why, something tells Quilla the very fate of the Inca rest on her meeting this mysterious huntress.

The Astrologer of El Dorado

Quilla is a new mercenary, available for recruitment to players level 155 and above. She is an astrologer and carries a staff as her main weapon. She can be acquired by clearing the Golden Empire raid dungeon, located in the South American field known as the Golden City of El Dorado.

Celestial Magic

Quilla has three powerful magic abilities, each with their own strengths and strategies.
  • Star Spite: The stars avenge you by damaging enemies who attack you. Passive magic.
  • Stellar Hunt: Unleashes massive damage on a column of enemies.
  • Celestial Venom: Damages enemies over time. If the magic is dispelled by Holy Guard, Ocean's Blessing, or Empress' Blessing, a secondary effect will be triggered.

"The stars light our path."
