Welcome to ApexKO!
We're a light-farm, PK oriented server that has been online since December 2015! Based on the newest Official KO version, we strive to provide a seamless, quality service to all our players.
Here's a small guide to get started in ApexKO.
1. Creating a character:
After finishing creating your account, you may create a character. Each character will come equipped with the following items:
5 day Cospre items (Cospre armors, Pathos Gloves, Wings) vouchers that can be redeemed in Moradon for free.
A name change scroll that can be used within 24 hours.
5 million noahs.
2. Customizing your character:
You can acquire starter items to suit your class at the [Gear Dispenser] NPC, situated in front of the stairs in Moradon. It's completely free.
3. Stop by Sundries to get PUS PvP scrolls and other goods.
In our sundries you can find the following items, which'll aid you in your endeavors in Ronark Land:
HP 1500, AC 300, Swift and Wolf scrolls for free!
Weapon and Armor enchant scrolls.
Lion Stat Scrolls.
HP 2000 and AC 350 scrolls.
Teleport to Friend scrolls.
EXP, WAR and DC flashes (can't be acquired anywhere else).
Unbind Item (required to unlock bind-on-equip items like Krowaz Armors).
Scrap of Steel and Nest Scraps (required to upgrade old uniques) can also be purchased in sundries.
Level 62 scrolls for free (Absolute Power, Scream, Magic Shield, Judgment).
Now you're ready to head into CZ!

5. Farming for gear.
NOTE: Do not forget to do your daily 1 hour DC Premium and Oreads quests before going farming. If you do so, you get free autoloot and significantly better drop rates. Find [Analyst] NPC in CZ town.
Farming in bowl
By killing Cardinals, Undyings, Dark Eyes and Harungas, you can farm Gold Coins worth 1 million noahs.
Atross and Riote drop a Silver Bar worth 10 million noahs and a gem.
Do not forget to slay Etaroths wandering around, they drop Krowaz chests.
Try not to miss Chaos Stones, as monsters spawn after killing it whom drop Apexis chests and gems.
If you see an Orc Bandit Leader, do not hesitate to kill it has a chance to drop a Trina's Piece.
Farming Blessed Upgrade Scrolls
Blood Seekers and Beasts have the highest chance to drop Blessed Upgrade Scrolls.
If you want to avoid being raided, try killing Cardinals (not the ones in bowl) and Dragon Tooth Commanders.
Each of these mobs spawn at a specific location outside bowl. It's your task to find out where they are.
They spawn every ~30-33 minutes and their drops include valuable Krowaz items.

Farming Super Shells (+7) and (+8)
Falcons drop Mythril armors.
Titans drop both Dragon Scale and Trial's armors.

Please, keep in mind that you need to have 5,000 ladder points to be able to take "Felankor Hunt" and "Ultima Hunt" quests.
